  Dragon on Dragon movement glitch.
Posted by: Mina Blair Run. - 06-23-2019, 08:01 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (3)

Noticed this today, if a dragon sits on a character with a Dragon Animagus nothing happens but if a Dragon sits on a Dragon it glitches out, you can't fly straight, you move without touching anything and well the video will show you what I mean.

  [Hogwarts] More Communication on Developement
Posted by: Aster Lux - 06-23-2019, 07:51 AM - Forum: Feedback - Replies (2)

This is gonna be feedback regarding the lack of communication regarding the developement of the HogwartsRP updates, as well as some suggestions. Keep in mind that all of this is my personal opinion and does not necessarily reflect the viewpoints of the playerbase as a whole.

So let me start of by just saying that how updates are currently done don't feel as satisfying as they could. The problem for this, in my opinion, lies in the complete lack of information on what's being worked on as well as the status of it. The problem with this is, players are left completely in the dark, get a feeling that nothing is being worked on and get frustrated that it's stale. Then an update gets dropped out of nowhere and communication stops again. I understand that surprises can be very nice, howevere there is ways to do that and still show people that stuff is coming.

You don't have to detail everything in an update but for example, for the potions rehaul you could simply announce it is being worked on, how far in developement for that is, give status updates, show maybe a few teasers, but don't give too many details and then launch it. This would build hype for it and would also get players excited.

Another approach might be to simply have a fixed update schedule, so there is one update every quarter to half a year and just putting whatever is done by then in it. So people know when they can expect new stuff and they know when they'll get it.


The next problem I see is the myriad of server suggestions that get accepted but never implemented. There's suggestions that have been accepted a very long time ago, some not event that hard to implement, that have never seen the light of day. I would suggest only accepting suggestions you actually intend to implement in the foreseeable future so people don't feel like their suggestions just get forgotten and then also maybe have a publicly accessible thread or document where players can check the status of those accepted server suggestions, e.g. "In Developement -60%", "QA", "Implemented". That way players could actually see that, yes it is being worked on and not ignored.

Communication is key in my opinion and that is severely lacking in this regard. It's good to see that Guy is actively trying to get more engaged with his community through streams and stuff, however Twitch Streams aren't the solution for everything, especially since many people may not be able to watch them due to work, timezones, etc.

I feel like stuff is indeed being worked on, at least Michael mentions that a lot in the server suggestions, so please just keep the community updated on what is being worked on, maybe throw a teaser here and there and once you feel comfortable drop a release date for an update.

Also do not silently implement changes without actively notifying players, if something gets changed, be it rules or something actually added/removed in game, make a mini-update post with the changelog so players can read up on it and not accidentally miss it, kinda like Sushi's bulletins but actually in the announcements section, as they can quickly get lost in general. Hell maybe even give Sushi permission to post them in announcements as they provide a good informational value and belong in there imo.

Of course if you make an announcement post in the shared announcement thread every time it can get crowded. I would suggest adding an announcement sub-forum to each section (Hogwarts, CW and Halo) and one at the top for community announcements (e.g. Twitch Streams, new Community Staff etc.), that way it would stay neat and organized, while keeping players updated and able to only view the updates they are interested in. I don't get why players have to scroll through updates from the other servers they may not be interested in to get to the ones they want.



So basically I am calling for more communication between Guy/CM/SM and the playerbase.
Make them feel like new stuff is happening and being worked on all the time.
Don't let them get the feeling that stuff is stale and then just drop updates out of nowhere.
Build hype and get them excited so they have a reason to stay on the server.

Hype is important for every game, of course it can get out of hand and may not live up to your expectations, and that may be why you do this spare communication approach, due to expectations potentially, getting too high, but just have trust in your playerbase and don't continue to keep them in the dark.

  Floaty Bois Unite!
Posted by: The Real Ronaldo - 06-23-2019, 04:47 AM - Forum: Roleplay - Replies (21)

A group of students, of which I am a part, have taken it upon themselves to master the art of levitation and spread their newfound knowledge amongst the student body of Hogwarts. Our aim is to make levitation commonplace at this great school and, eventually, among the wizarding world at large.

This group is none other than the

Despite it's moniker, this group is all inclusive and non-discriminatory. From all walks of life. From any race, gender, color, or creed. Each and every inhabitant of Hogwarts is welcome to float with us. Anytime. Anywhere. As long as you are floating, you are one of us.

If you are ever wandering the halls and happen upon a levitating witch or wizard, do not hesitate to ask how such a feat is possible. Any and all of us would love nothing more than to show you how it is done so that we may float together as one.
