Due to certain drawbacks during development, we came to the conclusion that the planned deadline of December 18th is not within realistic reach. Dyescape has been in development for a long time, and we do not want to launch our server if it turns out to be a disappointment. We would rather spend some more time trying to improve, add or change a few features here and there. We apologize for this.
The current new pre-alpha deadline is set to friday, February 16th.
Apologies for the lack of updates lately. We're working hard to work towards an alpha release date. We are excited to announce that the Dyescape closed alpha is planned to go live on the 18th of December, 2017. We will in the meantime keep you updated with how our development is going. We will also create either an extensive forum post or a seperate webpage that explains what people can expect from the Dyescape alpha and how you can sign up for it.
Note that not every post regarding progress will be displayed as an announcement. We will be posting development updates in this forum section. Other people can post in this section too if they have questions, thoughts or opinions.
We will end this announcement with minor showcase of some terrain we've been working on, created by @Aekalix:
Hi all. We've made a public Discord server for people to join. In here you can have a talk with fellow community or staff members. The purpose of this Discord is to allow better communication with people interested in Dyescape in a more efficiënt manner as we can't write news posts about small things all the time. Feel free to join it to keep updated on development or to simply have a good time chatting with us. Join using this link.
PLEASE NOTE: Dyescape is still in development! There is no point in joining our Discord server merely to ask for the IP of our server.
Finally, our server has a cinematic trailer thanks to @S_Weel. It's a cinematic fly-by trailer of our world and some buildings in it. The world you see in the trailer is the alpha world. This will be the first world by Dyescape accessible when the alpha goes live. Once Dyescape has more gameplay specific builds such as dungeons, we will start creating development log video's. Untill then we hope you guys will appreciate this cinematic trailer. Thanks again, @S_Weel!
WHAT IS DYESCAPE?
Starting out as a simple survival network, Dyescape is now becoming a major upcoming MMORPG, fantasy & medieval themed Minecraft server. We will be featuring unique classes, custom items, quests, guilds, custom monsters, a great storyline and a massive, beautifull open world to explore. All Dyescape specific plugins are made by ourselves, meaning we can easily add features as the community wishes. We strive to bring the classic MMO feeling to Minecraft, meaning things as combat will be based off actual MMO games. We will start our hosting compaign in Europe. If we reach the playerbase and funding, we will expand to America.
As you can see, we have a new website. The reason we got this new website is because we desired more overall control over it. With our previous Enjin website, we couldn't manage users, we couldn't...
