I almost forgot that we've got 'The Diary'. It has been a while. I've no idea why it has taken us so long. I guess 'cause everybody just had other things to do and it does take alot of time to get everything the way you want it.

Though recently I'm getting the feeling we're getting closer and closer. The map is almost finished. Rob has been doing a great job at implementing the new sprites made by the artists. The map is started to look so detailed and every area is different and beautiful in its own way. There are many new towns and areas added. Though I'm not going to get into detail, because that would ruin the fun of exploring the lands :)

Even the client and server are getting more stable and finished. We're running daily tests on the server now. Making sure all new features that are being added work perfectly. This week we've added the so called safe trading feature. We've had it in previous versions though as you probably know we've been remaking both client and server for better performances.

This is my diary for today, who knows maybe next week I'll make one again.

Greetings,
Robbert

You make a very conservative estimate.

Considering the game has taken so far 6+ years, so a few (1-2) more years is pretty good estimation hahaha!
Nah, actually, I think the game is really going out soon, I see a chance on being this year...

Me too, such a nice way to treat the community.

Please, do post more, Rob. Actually, all of you guys on the dev team should try to keep us updated. I mean, we kinda deserve this... Right?

It was indeed sad to see this project, the development diary, was abandoned, like many other forms of interaction between the community and the developers during this pre-release phase of the software.

I hope this new post gives the Myth Ent. team a reason to reactivate their individual diaries.

I do not have insight into why we stopped with those but I can guess it would be beacuse it would take a week or more to get content enough for one of those updates and most stuff is incredibly boring or hard to put into words. But fear not, we are working hard right now and I think the programming side(mostly what´s left) is growing closer and closer to completion(completion for what would be in the beta when we release it)

All sounds very positive, glad to see one of these with the date 2012 rather than 2010!
