There will be many large client updates rolling out over the course of the next few days. I will try to break down the patches into smaller, more manageable pieces so that your gaming experience isn't halted for long periods of time at once. To give you an idea of what's being updated client-side...

60+ new maps (including 9 new towns and 3 new instance dungeons)
2,500+ textures
40+ new monsters
200+ new items
30+ new cards

Thank you for your continued support. Stay tuned for more information regarding the server changes being made soon!

What are the textures?
Dimitri-My suit is GREASY SWEET
Sly-I have no idea what your saying... and your suit sucks.
Dimitri-Let's dance!

Dimitri-Show me your bling and let me shine you.

Dimitri-What's this about some uncool cat chasing around my nightclub samurai?

Dimitri-Look at this inventory, someone is breaking in and stealing my money, my real money!

Dimitri-That Clockwerk tail bro, paper, ink, thwack, easy money!

Dimitri-I am not cold-blooded my friend, I am cool-blooded!

Just a few questions:

Does this include renewal client?

Will we be based on eAmod or still eAthena?

Does this include episode updates, quests included?

Will donations also be updated, such as Gym Passes, and such?

The textures include anything from item skins, map details, user interface changes and just about anything else that isn't a 3D model like guardians.

I will not release a new client executable until I have the servers updated to support new packets. If i pushed out a new .exe now, you wouldn't be able to connect to the game at all.

We are still using eAthena right now, but i'm leaning very very heavily on moving towards an rAthena-based build. Making the switch will give us far more support, much faster updates and the ability to host a renewal server sometime in the future.

Since this announcement is strictly for client data, it will not include quests ingame. It will, however, give us all the content up through Episode 14.1 (Bifrost) ready to be implemented. Once the servers are updated, you'll see everything I can possibly get together up through 14.1 in the server, including all the instance dungeons up to this point.

Donation items are planned to be completely redone from the ground up. I almost cried looking at the list of items and their respective costs when I came back. It's a damn shame that stuff like hats are massively over-priced and items that can easily ruin a market are the cheapest things available. It makes no sense to me. I haven't decided exactly on what direction I want to go yet with respect to donor items, so i've made it a collaborative effort with the whole staff to find a more appropriate solution.

:D This is what we waited multiple years for. I'm glad to have stayed although starting at a bad time in this server's history. Stability and updates incoming. Seems like it'll be time to write a fair review for the server soon. ^-^
