Partnership/Cooperation With RuneLives
Apr 05, 2021 - 2:02 PM - by Nozemi
I've long wanted to get Dodian something better than what we have currently, on occasion I also built hype around getting things done. Like this time, but never delivered anything. Reason is nobody else has taken it into their hands to do something.

Though it came to my attention that we have some people in the community doing a project called RuneLives. I approached them because it's in the community's best interest if we can work together, as opposed to dividing the community. So this is what we're trying to do now.

With this, we will likely have two worlds for Dodian. Details are quite thin yet, but it essentially means one client, but you may play both servers/worlds. We will also be adding HoocH to the staff team. He will mainly be someone to help me make good decisions for our server.

Plans Ahead
Apr 02, 2021 - 6:36 AM - by Nozemi
I would just like to inform you that so far things are going according to plan. I'm making progress on the new website. Some of you might question my decision to work on a new website instead of finishing the new server. More on that later.

First of all, I would like to clear up any potential misunderstandings. Ivan and I are on good terms, though unfortunately we couldn't seem to work together. Then the question was, who is going to take charge. Decision fell on me, because I know how to program, Ivan doesn't. So I hope that I can deliver on my previous promises.

Server Reset - Do note that we're not resetting the server!
Some players have expressed their concern about the current state of the economy, and even stats. Some wants a reset. However the staff team doesn't share the same thoughts about solution to the problem. We do however know how bad of a state Dodian is in at the moment. We found a potential solution, and we think it'll be a good one, it's not entirely decided just how we'll be doing it right now. We would like to hear some of your opinions on it before we make the final decisions.

Point System
What we want to do is introduce a point system. You trade in items, maybe even skill experience to receive points. These points can be used in a store to obtain items not otherwise obtainable. These items will mostly be untradeable items. This point system will come to stay. However we thought that we should add some limited time deals, so that the players that have played up until this reset will have the chance to get some unique items that are never to be obtained in any way ever again.

With this, we have the following questions for you!

- What items would you wish to see in this point store? (can be anything from OSRS)
- Should we forcefully convert items and skills into points, or should be make it optional? Alternatively should we only forcefully do items, and leave skills, or entirely optional?
- Should we have only tradeables or non-tradeables, or a mix of both?
- Should we solely have cosmetic items or also gear/consumables?

So for now, if we can get some feedback on this, it would be awesome and a lot of help! After all, we want the community to be a part of deciding the future as much as that's... [Read More]

People may start asking questions about what is going on at Dodian now. Well, I've came to realize that me and Ivan can't work together, and in my opinion he has made some questionable decisions, even some despite disagreements from other staff members.

I've gone ahead and removed Ivan from his admin position and Ween from his moderator position. Ween has proven to be extremely toxic, especially towards the staff team. If he has a problem with the majority of the staff team, and works it out by talking shit about us in the general public, he's not fit to be part of said staff team.

So what's going to happen now?
I'll be stepping back into being administrating Dodian again. I have a lot of work ahead of me, and will mainly focus on getting a new website and server up and running. Because we really need both.

I know I've been claiming to work on this for a long time, but never delivering. I won't make any promises this time either, but I've made some life choices that will give me more time to work on Dodian. I also think that, if not big, at least a decent game with a decent sized community.

When the new server is out
So my plan is to launch a new server (without resetting anyone's progress/stats), and a new website. This will allow us to maintain Dodian more easily, add more modern features. We'll see what we can add in terms of new content once we reach that point.

We've been lucky to have Supertje help us make some new maps. These will go live along with the new server, and it's going to be a new Dodian experience. It's mostly about relocating existing map locations, so not custom designed maps. More on that later.

I also thought that with the new server going live, we can also start fresh on punishments. Though some cases of punishment needs to be reviewed before we can lift them.

With the new website, we'll have a ticket management system, so it will be a lot easier to maintain good decisions in the staff team, as well as take care of any abusive staff members.

I hope you can bear with me in the meantime of all of this. In the meantime me and the rest of the staff team will do the best we can to help assist you!
