  [Hogwarts RP] Hogsmeade Map Progress Update | April 2021
Posted by: The Guy - 04-09-2021, 10:37 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (14)

Hogwarts RP Hogsmeade Map Progress Update | April 2021

[Image: giphy.gif]

For reading ambience:





Howdy, gamers!

Let's jump right in and address both elephants in the room right away. First of all, for those of you that missed it, or believed it, or... still believe it, the previous announcement posted on April 1st, aka, April Fools day, was in fact an April Fools joke. The Hogsmeade map is absolutely still in development. Great news right?! Now, on to the news that isn't as great, but isn't necessarily bad either, depending on your level of patience. The map is still immensely close to being completed, however, there are almost always new issues that need to be addressed, new design ideas that come to fruition, or design details that were or are simply overlooked that must be completed. With that said, we previously stated that a release date of 30-60 days from that time was plausible. Obviously, the 30 days have already come and gone, so we still have a chance to hit within what was stated to be the 'worst-case scenario' of 60 days. I don't want to give another timeframe because I've learned my lesson several times over the years doing this before, and have learned the same lesson yet again. I can however say with confidence that it will still be SOON. I think once you see what we've got to share below, you'll only be more excited for what's to come. All of the core level design is now done, it's now down to mostly organizing building placements, cleaning up any issues, optimizing, and doing soundscapes. That's about it at this point, but this can all still be very time-consuming. We will also need to do some internal playtests once this is done before putting any sort of alpha version onto the live server. Nonetheless, here's a lot of new stuff we have to share meanwhile. Probably the most we've shared in any single progress announcement to date.

Here we are simply showcasing some of the general atmosphere of the map. This will give you an early feel of what you can expect to see while you're exploring the world around you.

Zonko's is now finished, excluding the inner decorations. Though, at the time of posting this, it's likely done entirely. An overview of the current buildings is also provided, but the layout is not final.

Generic classrooms 3 and 4 respectively are both finished. On Hogsmeade, we likely won't be referring to these by those basic names, and instead, they will have some form a point of interest for a name. For example, classroom 3 will likely be referred to as the 'Theatre'. The class system would say something along the lines of "Gryffindor | Ravenclaw - Wizardry: Theatre".

Dogweed and Deathcap, aka the Herbology classroom, is completed. This is where the Herbology class will take place in Hogsmeade.

J. Pippins Potions, aka the Potions classroom, is completed. This is where the Potions class will take place in Hogsmeade.

The catacombs are now also finished entirely. The catacombs on Hogsmeade will be extensive in comparison to the ones on our Hogwarts map. As usual, the detention area will reside within the catacombs, and at least one section of map contributor credits will be placed in this area. I have to personally give a shout-out and some serious kudos to our level designer Shy for this, this area really looks like a level from a AAA RPG game. I myself am very impressed.

Spintwitches, aka the Quidditch shop and or classroom, is completed, excluding a portion of the inner decorations. This is where the Quidditch class can and may take place in Hogsmeade. There will also be a more 'unofficial' Quidditch pitch nearby, it will be much smaller than the Quidditch Stadium at Hogwarts, but sufficient enough. It will be loosely inspired by Queerditch Marsh, the spot where Quidditch evidently originated. No visuals to share in regards to that yet, but soon enough.

Some miscellaneous progress to share, including a significant update to the look of some of the main cave area(s) as well as the main pathways throughout the town area of Hogsmeade. Additionally, I've attached a neat video that Shy has shared compressing several hours of mapping into just several minutes, for your viewing pleasure.

We've been trying to come up with new and unique ways for players to immortalize themselves onto the map. Unlike what we have done with the Hogwarts map, we may continue to introduce new ways or reintroduce old ways of allowing players to find their way onto the map in some form or another. This means the 'final' version of Hogsmeade may not exist at any point, or at least for some time. Unlike the 'Map Credit Opportunity' mentioned in previous announcements, which will be re-mentioned below here again as well, we've come up with the idea of allowing an entire building and shop to be named after one lucky contributor. ____'s Muggle Artifacts, the blank obviously being your alias or name of choice. This is a one-off opportunity, and the winner will be drawn on a currently undecided deadline from a pool of names. This deadline will be confirmed in what will hopefully be the last progress update, or possibly even release announcement! It will require a minimum donation of $15 USD to be made to be added to said pool. Again, just to be clear, you are donating for a chance at this, and it's not guaranteed, given only one person will be drawn. You can, however, donate more than $15 USD, as every $15 USD increment you donate will be another entry into the pool of individuals to be drawn from. This will greatly increase your chances of winning, obviously, with the more entries that you have. The winner's building will be both named and color-themed to their liking, so long as it's something we can both do and agree to, entirely at our discretion. It will be located within the town area of Hogsmeade amongst the rest of the main iconic shops and buildings. Your contributions towards this drawing must be made directly to SBS on PayPal via the same email address for donations, donate@starbystargaming.com. Please be sure to send these contributions the same way that you would any donation (as a personal payment, very important, please reach out to me via forum PM if you need further guidance) and include in the transaction note that your donation is for "Donating for: Hogwarts RP - Hogsmeade Player Named Building Drawing Entry", as well as the name or alias you'd like to have displayed for your credit. The name must be both appropriate and approved. Without spoiling too much, including the gags inside, you can get a sneak peek of the outside of the building below. PS: To clarify, in the March progress update announcement, the originally required donation minimum was $25 USD, however, due to high demand, we've lowered the requirement quite a lot to allow a broader number of entries, as well as for those who wish to enter to have more entries overall as well.

If you'd like to contribute financially towards the creation of the Hogsmeade map, you may do so and earn your place forever ingrained in or on an area(s) of the map. We are crediting any and all contributors who make contributions of $50 USD or more by having their desired name(s) or alias(es) credited on a to-be-determined part or section of the map, much like you can currently see in detention (on the chalkboards) on our current Hogwarts RP map, and in the graveyard as well (on the gravestones). There may potentially be a couple of different areas you will be credited on Hogsmeade as well, rather than just one. Further specifics will be provided as more progress on the map is made. These contributions must be made directly to SBS on PayPal via the same email address for donations, donate@starbystargaming.com. Please be sure to send these contributions the same way that you would any donation (as a personal payment, very important, please reach out to me via forum PM if you need further guidance) and include in the transaction note that your donation is for "Hogsmeade Map Credit", as well as the name or alias you'd like to have displayed for your credit. The name must be appropriate and approved. We will allow these contributions to be made all the way up until the point we are nearing a final version of the map, so you will have plenty of time if you wish to do this in the future, or you cannot or are unable to at this moment. If you'd like to make any contribution that you believe will be fairly significant in size, please contact me directly before making your contribution, and we will see if there's anything extra special we can do for you.

Final Details

As for the remaining bit of agenda, the only two remaining 'enterable' buildings that need to be created are both generic Class 1 and 2. There are still a number of remaining things left on the to-do-list, but as previously stated, the core designing for Hogsmeade is now essentially finished entirely. I am optimistic that we will have some more definitive news to share in regards to when you can finally get to experience the map for the first time in the next progress update. As Shy told me last time we talked, "ETA 1 year :^)". (Jokes, btw.) As always, stay tuned and stay excited!

  Animagus Spell/Animation - Amato Animo Animato Animagus
Posted by: Tony Morgose - 04-09-2021, 02:38 PM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (2)

**DISCLAIMER: https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=6095

(1) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? - Yess indeed

(2) What is your suggestion? - Add Amato Amino Animato Animagus spell (animation) to jobs/roles that have animagus abilities

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - I've been playing for years, and the one thing that hasn't really changed is the fact that when you change from human form to your animagus, you just kind of poof into the aforementioned form. It isn't a horrible way of transforming, but imagine how cool it would be if, when you transform into an animagus form, there was an accompanying animation (kind of like when you come out of the form), which would add a whole new aesthetic to the experience.

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - I guess one of the possible drawbacks would be the required development of such an animation, but I'm not sure what that would entail as I'm no animator. I assume you could reverse the animation that's tied to coming out of the animagus form with a few tweaks so it didn't look like a poorly edited Tik Tok video?

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? - Yes


(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) - Hate speech and staff disrespect: I called Ophelia the F slur during an RP encounter. After this, I was then pulled into a separate room by Ophelia. During the disciplinary process, I disrupted Ophelia on multiple occasions by not acknowledging what I did was wrong and pretending to not understand what I had done. I also attempted to bait Ophelia into saying the F slur. This resulted in the ban. 


(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? - Yes


(9) Why should you be unbanned? - Considering what I have done I don't think any excuses can rectify what I have done. All I can say is that I'm sorry and it will not happen again. I also want to apologize to Ophelia for causing unnecessary disruption to their RP experience and to other people who may have been affected or offended by what I had said. 


(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? - Yes and it will never happen again.
