Updates July 4th - Ironman Mode
« on: June 26, 2016, 03:43:51 pm »
Hello everybody,

I've got quite a few things ready, so please take your time and read through them. Some updates might be of great interest for you!

Ironman mode
Many people have continuously suggested the famous ironman mode. You're now able to make yourself an ironman account on tutorial island. The quest guide (last npc to visit) will offer you the option to become an ironman account. With this update, I've also reworked parts of the Hiscores. The page's layout was updated and an option was added to view ironman accounts only. Ironman accounts cannot get any items from player interactions, they have to get everything themselves (with the exception of membership tickets).
Moreover, ironman accounts have a special icon in front of their name to show off their efforts.


Protection Prayers
The way protection prayers used to work was confusing and I also don't wish to explain it. This update overhauls protection prayers. When fighting an enemy with a protection prayer, your maximum hit is reduced:
  • You get 40% less damage from players with an activated protection prayer.
  • You get 60% less damage from monsters with an activated protection prayer.
With this update we have a fair and easy to understand protection prayer system, the maximum damage is simply reduced. Monsters that cannot hit more than 25 will ALWAYS hit 0 with an activated protection prayer. This means that protection prayers give you full protection from weak monsters.

In-game fixes / tweaks:
  • The map loader has been rewritten. Presenting you a much smoother map transition when walking into newer areas. When teleporting somewhere, the game will pause until the region is loaded. Resulting in an overall smoother gameplay.
  • The minimap is now rendered faster and won't lag anymore when moving around. It's now making use of multiple cores on your system to share the workload.
  • Two additional obsidian dragons have been added to their caves.
  • The way how dragonfire protection works has been changed. Dragonfire will now hit you more often and cannot be fully protected anymore. Dragonfire damage can always hit a maximum of 3 now, no matter how much protection you use.
  • Vesta's spear special now works correctly again.
  • You will now also get double tickets when using double XP scrolls during the Brimhaven agility arena minigame.

In other news
I'll now start working on the next huge update, which is going to be a new dungeon with a new boss. I'll most likely combine this with a quest series that continuously gives you more access to the area. I'm not 100% sure on the outcome though, just letting you guys know what I've got in mind. :D

All the best,
Thomy

So you can't just bring a bunch of prayer potions to, say abby demons, but food aswell because of the protection prayer changes?
Ironman mode is a great addition, might create an account later.

That's true and could be a flaw in the system, I'll have a look at it, thank you!

Great update! Im for sure gonna make an ironman :D
Quick question though, how are you going to get member on an ironman? Earlier, the unwritten rules for an ironman said that you can buy them from other players, but what now?

Exited to see what's coming up next!

Updated this 'issue': Monsters that cannot hit more than 25 will ALWAYS hit 0 with an activated protection prayer. This means that protection prayers give you full protection from weak monsters.

This was also used by the old protection prayer mechanic.

You're able to trade member tickets and can buy them on the Grand Exchange.
