    Why I no longer believe in Ylands

    "you should realize that ylands is primarily a platform for creating mini-games" Well, according to the original road map and original game, this was not indicated, and was the main reason why many of us were attracted here. If this is now the direction, perhaps the devs should admit so ...and then concentrate on them so those of us who believed in the original exploration concept will not be lead down the wrong path lined with promises ...and go find another game that suits what we wanted from the original. When i look at screenshots from the beginning , with that single island and a title exclaiming what the game was about ..... well its obviously there's been a switch in directions ...and we were kept in the dark. Again, we hope the next 1.6 update brings people back ...but from the comments by those who tried to help and got burnt.... and the ex players i contacted ( who are in other mp games and enjoying them) who say they wont come back ...its a very steep uphill battle they now have. Everyone is entitled to an opinion .. they are like "posteriors" ... everyone has one, but they are generally used to sit on ........

    Why I no longer believe in Ylands

    Shadow.. speaking generally. I should have made that clearer.... was not implying you would ( early morning here and coffee not soaked in yet). In the past when i have made a suggestion that was for the good of all i had been flamed .. but then block posts is a useful facility. The fact that i see your posts indicates it didn't involve you and still doesn't But i have seen several gifted players who have offered scripting , modded maps and other enhancements ( that gave the game what it needed that the devs had ignored ) get literally shafted or ignored or their work tossed aside. With n o explanation or acknowledgement. When i started this game there were 12 plus players in a social group queued up to get in to play as a group ...if you got disconnected ..someone else took your place and you had to queue up. But that was then .. then there was the dark age that set in and i am now lucky to see one other player in the game. Ylands has not died ...yet... but it needs a MAJOR relaunch with its objectives etc highlighted...and a pathway set and adhered to. We have hope . One day i might win the lottery too!

    Why I no longer believe in Ylands

    I like the game , i see the improvements .."when" they arrive , but i am just as confused as others as to what they expect the game to be. is it PVP combat? Exploration? Mini games for kids to play on mobiles while waiting for the school bus? But now that Adam as gone ( he was to me , the captain of the lifeboat we were hanging onto)_ where is the game going to go? theres mention of scripting ... blah blah blah .. and other stuff that the players obviously dont want or have interest in. But honestly .. theres so much life blood lost over the last few years that theres not enough in the veins to respond to heart massage or increased pulse. Sadly, i saw a lot of god players try to help ... and end up being shafted .. so they gave up . Also i think its time for some people to put their egos in their pockets and instead try to help the game rather than attack others who are trying to help. Over and out . Flame me if you wish ... it wont help the game.

    How is the Covid-19 situation going in your country?

    Whats annoying are the anti-vaxxers spreading conspiracy tales and false stories ... like the vaccine causes sterility, it alters your DNA , and (believe it or not) it makes you susceptible to effects of radiation from 5G phone towers... ;0 Next they will say it will attract aliens to abduct you...

    where i am there's been 40 days now without a new infection recorded ... and vaccine rollouts started . There was a cartoon showing two dogs talking...one was asking "why are humans wearing muzzles?" the other relied " because they cannot sit and stay"

    I logged in 3 times today and water still has no animation on the P1 server... sailing, there is no bow wake . I travelled to another mp game and lo and behold ..water was working.... bow wake and ship moved accordingly. returned to the P1 Pt2 server ..and ...yup... water had no animation. The ship jumped around and stuttered. you already have the logs

  14. did some experimenting ..it might be an issue with that block ( asset) .. i constructed a row of small windows along the top and then the block would fit in underneath them . but they would only fit in where the windows were . screenshot attached
