Edited on Oct 1, 2015
I appreciate everyone comments and I try to answer that seem to bother many, below the time plan in this post.
Bug-fix releases that should have been released on the end of week 38 is released. If there is any crash message me asap please.
Major update is being developed since week 39 and is going good, only slow. Since there were many plans on the new features, I’m working on finding which choice will work out the best for now. And since this major update will have the attribute revamp, it is planned that it will be very customizable compared to the current one. More details will be released if I can tell facts.
JRMCore bug-fix release
+ fix: release % wont go above its limit if skill not upgraded
+ changed: release % above 50% charge rate became faster
JBRA minor release
+ added: DBC new fly animation
Dragon Block C bug-fix release
+ fix: tp gain for group members when mission done and accepted by group leader
+ changed: fly and dash speed formula changed again. You’ll have 25% of the overall speed from the beginning.
Naruto C bug-fix release
+ fix: explosion tag and kunais were a little bit tweaked, changes will still be made regarding items
+ fix: ninja spawn rate
Family C bug-fix release
+ fix: gender change command works again as it should
Short-term plan will change as following:
week 38: Fixing bugs that will be reported from these snapshots mainly and fix releases for weekend.
week 39: Start working on a Big Update. JRMCore attribute revamp. Probably will take more then just 1 week. DBC racial abilities will get revamping for balancing (means racial skill for those who didnt had yet)
– week 40-41: Working on the next major update.
– week 42: Not sure yet depends on the progress
– sometime after the major update: animations and one or more of the new active skills.
Short-term plans without specific date and they probably wont be released like they are grouped below in most cases:
– animations for DBC, NC and new visuals (aura, maybe new ki attack anim but not sure yet)
– DBC: new active skills: Kaioken, IT, ki sense
– DBC: new scouter system, outfit creation system, new wish system
– DBC: movie sagas, gt sagas, ss4 form, ssg form
– NC: medical ninjutsu, new clans, outfits, NPCs, Buildings, Villages, Mission system
– JRMCore: hair system upgrade to next level, giving a bend to hairs and more length
– FamilyC: Namekian procreation
– many things are missing from here too, dont know when i will add them
– Sorry too much to write I guess I will make a separate page for this when i have time to gather them would take a week or so. There are really a lot of them. Even thou I mean a week by that I mean nothing else but the whole week working on gathering the info and no modding and development. So I don’t know when will I take that week since I still consider the modding to be more important then sharing what will be added months or years later.
“Please note that this work plan may change to unexpected events!”
About Posting. I am trying to post weekly but its not a few minutes to write these posts. It takes more then an hour for me. I need to gather the info I want to share, format them, rewriting them, translating them if needed till its in readable format. And there are times when I want to concentrate more on the coding rather then gathering the info on what to post. And its not like I could just pass this on to someone else to post in my name, since I still would need to gather the info myself. But If you insist I will try to post weekly again even if I didn’t gathered enough info to post.
About the next major release. It will be probably in middle of next month, in worse case at month end. So between October 13-30.
About Optifine. Optifine uses now something that overwrites some of JBRA mods visual codes. I cant really do much in that matter yet. I heard some managed to run my mods with Optifine just fine. Well I didn’t use Optifine for more the 2 years now so I know nothing about it. From what “Fox_of_Shadows” has written It seems if you put Optifine in mods folder rather then installing it should work?
“Fox_of_Shadows” talked about me getting “paid” from servers. Whoa there a second. I don’t know if its okay or not to talk about my financial situations but it seems many get it very wrong.
First about “getting paid by servers”. The only server that donated $400 (2 times $200) was the DBC kingdoms server and that was last year and they said that to in public announcement too so its okay for me to tell this, since then they didn’t sent me anything. No other server ever donated close to that amount as they did but there are servers who donate time to time just to be on the featured list in the server list site but still not on regular basis. Thou currently I don’t remember any server that donated more then 3 times. I never forced servers to donate me too and the truth to be told, counting all the donations from all the servers I didn’t even received overall $400, since the DBC kingdoms donation more then a year ago, until Sept 1, 2015. About JinGames DBC Server income anyone can check it by visiting http://dbcserver.ryugujo.hu, and all the donations are to be used only for the upkeep of the server, I don’t take anything from it just to let every know if its not obvious.
About the websites income, I will also share that Adfly links rarely generate more then $100 a month, it is usually between $40-$100.
If you believe it or not, all the income from donations, Adfly and ads on the website only generate as much income that I can pay the monthly rent and public utilities. And that is all the whole modding brings me in. I can hardly say that its enough to live from. BUT there is no workplace that would have me where I live, and I do like coding even if its not worth. I tried to point out the important things from this matter.
Yes I know that it is easier to use mods with Modpacks, you don’t need to tell me. But do you know what a Modpack means to developers who want some support for their works? And I don’t just say this in my name.
A Modpack means very minimal or no support at all. Just think about it, the support that a developer gets, in my case are from donations, adfly and advertisements on my website that are not even close to a salary of an average jobs where I live. And a Modpack strips the adfly and advertisments support which bring in the most support for me.
Look at the technicpack.net website which most of you probably know, they have ads and I don’t know what else that brings them support. What do you think why I don’t allow Modpacks? Me as a developer who would like to have support, is being taken away by the Modpacks. Thats why I despise technicpack.net, they get the support for my work. You know what that is called? Stealing. And I don’t know If the one who makes the Modpack receives something or not from that, but making Modpacks without permission is Stealing aswell.
Not to mention the people who download my mods and just upload them somewhere else and use their own adfly or similar services to make money for themselves, mainly on Youtube I saw many. And the mod sites which have many mods and don’t link back to the original authors website, just use their own download links to generate support for their own, instead of the developers who made the mods. That is Stealing too.
I didn’t talked about this publicly till now since I felt bad about this letting everyone know that my financial state is not getting better but worse. Even thou there is the server list site, hair salon site and new download site, everything I make only balances out the missing support where I would hope it increases and yet they don’t.
If this keeps up I might have to stop modding even if i don’t want to.
Many say DBC is popular? well I don’t see the support that shows me that its popular.
Of course there are the honorable exceptions who support me as they can and only thanks to them am I able to continue!
Here I would like to Thank everyone who visit my websites or download my mods every time from my website.
Thank you Everyone! Your support means everything to me!
