There's always the world?

Or how to identify those who sleep in the back of the room near the radiator ...

Well ... The last article of my cave of April 2013 Ok ... it only been a year and a half eh! Let those who are still following posting a comment !!!

I really do not have to give reasons for this long absence on my blog dedicated to RR but for those who want to know, all this time I got the change I wanted to work, I two moves, I bought a house with my partner and I got married with the latter (with all the preparations that the latter action implies). So I did not have much time for RR, I hope you will understand ...

But rest assured (or not), MrGroar Von Valendras still lives !!! He leads a peaceful retreat in Bourges in the Duchy of Berry, where he built his beautiful grand-bourgeois room ... It does nothing more but still breathing !!!

Regarding my sites, there a lot of work to catch up. Maybe it will be done by the end of the year, maybe not ... Must also say that there are games coming out that will definitely take me some time (Wasteland 2 and Civilization Beyond Earth ). So we'll see. But I have not forgotten you.

Until then, I wish you all a good game and a lot of happiness. All that ... :)

Addition to the tax exile

April 3, 2013

Or how to track down fraudsters effectively ...

A tool exists for some time has been updated by its author, Orandin. It is a tool to mayors so they can be analyzed more easily and quickly the list of unpaid taxes included in the game. The analysis made ​​shows the total amount that each person liable must, and it is possible to determine who the fraudsters (those who do not pay several times in a row) indicating a recidivism threshold (February-June unpaid). Thank you to Orandin for his creation !!!

Happy New Year 2013 !!!

January 8, 2013

Or 1461 depending on your frame of reference ...

So now, good year, good health and all ...

Like every year, here's a recap of what happened in the Cave:

  • 665,056 unique visitors
  • 2,156,180 page views (about 45% for world maps RR, 20% for the Grotto, 15% for the Encyclopedia of RR and rest to various pages that are favorites)

You have supported me a lot for all this (30 € Paypal donations, € 22 Allopass donations for some cards more downloads euros other pubs but they remain insignificant), so that I paid that twenty euros for the domain name and hosting. A big thank you !!! You give me want to continue my momentum with your visits and support! :)

Well ... This is less than in 2011 (15% -30% of visitors and page views, 20 articles - 2 times less than in 2011) but these are just numbers.

And then I got a little lax in terms of productivity, even if I am happy with what I provide you this year:

  • Update Encyclopedia RR (1 Year updated caught delay)
  • Updating the map of RR (and that was a big building site of a hundred hours at the very least ...)
  • Updating of certain pages of the Spotty Office (the rest in 2013)
  • And the premise of creating a personal game ... (but I do not tell you more for the moment, the coding is very partial and the concept is growing but requires a lot of thinking ...)

Voili voilou ... HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Need help ...

December 8, 2012

Or how to look for alpha testers and ideas ...

On November 11, 2012 I started to develop a game multiplayer turn-based role in real time on the Internet browser. Yes ... even ashamed!

The story takes place on colonies based on distant planets, in a relatively distant future, where the player is a character to survive in an environment that has been bequeathed to him by ... Well, I'm not going to say. Anyway the background is still not totally fixed in my head. But you already know that it is a science fiction universe and it is not to make a big army very quickly and then try to kill his opponent.

At present, several things are already coded:

  • Registration module, account activation, login
  • Forum (ultra basic for now, since only the alpha-test part is made)
  • Character Sheet (basic ultra too)
  • General infrastructure (buildings of the colony, productions)
  • Interface (except graphics because it's not my cup of tea, at least not what I want to do)
  • Internal mail (I am particularly happy)
  • Options leaders of each building
  • File passage of the turn (well ... there is almost nothing at the moment of course)

Of course, many ideas are still at the theoretical stage and plenty already encoded certainly deserve adjustments and probably scripting security is not yet assured. Similarly, the appearance design is biding his time. But that advance gradually.

My title calls for help? In fact, my computer language skills being what they are, that is to say, the result of six years of personal research by himself in order to achieve all that I have done for gaming De Gloria Regni, I am not able to do everything. And what I've done can obviously be riddled with errors and abominations for a computer professional. That's why I'm looking for volunteers (I person force) volunteers (I can pay anyone, and I do not want to make this game a fee) willing to help me in my task of video game creation. As you can see, my expectations are varied:

  • Securing SQL query and the database
  • Securing restricted views
  • Code optimization and architecture
  • Graphics Development
  • Game development system
  • Continuous testing rules and securing

It is obvious (at least to me) that I can not tolerate enrollment number for now, let alone the curious inscriptions attracted only to see what happens: one thing at a time, the opening to the public will come relatively quickly. I seek only motivated and competent volunteers, so those of you who are interested are invited to contact me by e-mail telling me anything that might help me so that I select. I will not be against anything by bringing you more than an enormous gratitude and the promise of reward you by naming you (if you wish) on a special page. It will not take no more of me superhuman reactivity: I have a life beside ... However, I myself am motivated to continue my project, so if you feel like you're welcome! :)

Photos of the IRL 8 years Celsius

Or how to prove that De Gloria Regnisiens are crazy ...

Here is a glimpse of the pictures of the IRL 8 years Celsius.

A new fitting room

November 28, 2012

Or how to spend hours of shopping ...

Thank you to the Pebble Brotherhood for making me discover this new changing room El sito Libertius comes largely compete with those I already knew and which I gave you news regularly ( Dufric & Jak0lantash ). That of Libertius includes all clothing and all the accessories of the game, and even outfits and various useful tools for a fitting room. Not to mention various links to sites related to games De Gloria Regni. Well Done !!!

The Brotherhood of Caillou has struck again!

November 20, 2012

Or how to talk about those we never speak ...

Maybe you do not know the Brotherhood of Caillou (and yet I've already talked about !!!). You're missing out. Except that it informs us every week (or so but it is not their fault, it's just that computers sometimes surprises in store for us) by giving us the birth statistics (registrations of new players ) on the three DGR games, it sometimes lays us pretty little strange articles. The first proposed innovations about clothing. And second , from today, we talk about those players who have accounts for several years but who have not passed their character to level 1. Yes you heard right, at level 1. Supported by responses of stakeholders on why and how beautifully illustrated, this article is to read urgently!

And since that's how I put a link to Pebble Brotherhood of the Grotto.

NB: If your character has pebbles but does not know what to do, contact Minlawa from me!

Culture, War and Territories

November 6, 2012

Or how to dramatically improve the foreknowledge of mankind RR ...

That's it, the Kingdom of Dufric just spent two major steps. The Kingdom of Sink did, the Kingdom of the fact Dufric also recently: it is now possible to know what the armies present in each city, but also to know that the status quo is held in each of these cities. Well ... I will be discussing the legitimacy or not to use such an option eh, I'm just informing me.

And another thing that did not sink but Dufric did: it is also possible to know which books are available in all the universities of RR and to contact their rectors. A huge step forward in the world of students.

Ah yes, again, I would point out that I am the creator of either of these sites. The basin was created by a player whose character was Ylaibo (missing for a long time) and the Kingdom of Dufric is managed by a player whose personage is called ... Dufric. I say this only because some still believe that it's me and ask me to add stuff ...

Encyclopedia of RR - Update

October 24, 2012

Or how to make up a year late ...

It's been a few days that it's done now, but I like to keep you in every way I have. So now, since the month of October 2011 I had not added or changed in my Encyclopedia everything that was added or modified in the rules of Renaissance Kingdoms . I do not tell you the details here, if you want to see what has been added or changed, there is a list here .

Otherwise, you may have noticed that the Kingdom of Dufric is down for several days. Do not panic it will come back, he just had some problems with his host, Free, which did not appreciate how Dufric to use the hosting service. They know how to make you appreciate their freedom.

Finally, for a week I'm updating the Office Spotty , firstly I changed the graphics and presentation, and then I added a lot of choices that were not possible before. You can already get an idea on the pages of maraicher, corn farmer and blacksmith, operational in this update will be generalized to all pages (pages other course remain available even if they have not yet updated).

The Brotherhood of Caillou

October 8, 2012

Or how to find a use for all the pebbles that digs ...

How to explain what the Brotherhood of Caillou ? I do not know yet ... You decide! For now it seems to me promising, and in any case very nicely!
