Dodian Beta
Apr 22, 2021 - 7:34 PM - by Nozemi
I'm pleased to announce that we've just launched the website phase 1, which is a beta version of our new website. You can see that on https://beta.dodian.net/. Currently it's very basic, and it does lack some essential features, though everything essential that took time is out of the way.

What has taken most time is for me to dive back into PHP and also start learning Laravel (a PHP framework). Though I feel like most of the really essential things are understandable now, so plowing through the work of adding new features should be fairly simple.

Staffing Situation
Last announcement I made was about the unfortunate split of Dodian and RuneLives. There was an incident, which is already public knowledge, and following there was a disagreement/dispute between the managers of each project. I would like to state that there are no issues between us/me and RuneLives in any way.

Though we are happy to say that we have continued to work with HoocH. He will continue to work with the rest of the staff team to bring Dodian forward.

Nightleaf has also offered his help with Dodian going forward. Which is awesome and means we're probably looking at way quicker development than if I had to do most of it myself. Though Nightleaf will also help manage the project and fill in any gaps he can.

Dodian's Future - Game-wise
We have some plans I personally believe are going to be awesome addition to Dodian. I mentioned it in the Discord announcement that I wrote for those who are in our Discord server (be it the community one or our official game Discord). I won't release anything concrete as of now, as very little is set in stone, at this point it's just small drafts. Though I can share that we're not about to mindlessly add OSRS content into Dodian, we want it to remain Dodian, but still offer new experiences. We believe this is required in order to bring in new people and increase our population, which a lot of you have been asking for since the beginning of this remake run.

I have also told you since forever that we are not about to advertise Dodian in it's current state, however when we're closer to... [Read More]

What is going on?
Apr 19, 2021 - 4:43 AM - by Nozemi
Update! It looks like Volume/RuneLives didn't want to fuck us over, he just seem to have other plans. I have not been informed of anything that he wanted to do in regards to disband our partnership. However it's safe to say that there won't be a partnership between RuneLives and Dodian anymore.

I believe some people had their doubts about the partnership. Some people also have their doubts about me delivering any work. I wanted to engage the partnership because it unites the community, as opposed to divide it. That said I have no strong motivation to try and compete with anybody else. I just want a decent server for the community I've been a part of the past 10 years or so of my life. Now this will have to happen without the partnership.

Now the big question you might have is; "WHEN ARE YOU RELEASING THE NEW DAMN SERVER!??". To answer this question; I know I've taken my time doing nothing and "promising" a lot. I have no time frame (sorry), but I'm working out the new website so we have that settled. Two things left to do there really; finish the two factor authentication and Discord integration. When this is done I can start piecing together the Dodian content on the new server base.

In terms of contributing, the new server will also remain open source. There are however very lacking documentation on how to contribute towards Dodian's open source projects as of yet. However I will get to work on those later on. So right now I don't think contributing is feasible unless you have experience with Git and Java programming.

_____________________

I'm going to keep this rather brief. I personally have no idea what is going on, but we're aware that Volume/RuneLives just deleted the Discord or kicked us out. He didn't notify me in any kind of way and thus I've removed his and Hooch's admin privileges to make sure things stay operational and in good condition. Well, at least not worse condition than prior to their promotions.

At no point in time were they given any access to the infrastructure, they only had site admin, so there should be no reason to fear any breaches coming later on from them.

I will make sure to keep you informed when I learn more about the situation.

Partnership/Cooperation With RuneLives
Apr 05, 2021 - 2:02 PM - by Nozemi
I've long wanted to get Dodian something better than what we have currently, on occasion I also built hype around getting things done. Like this time, but never delivered anything. Reason is nobody else has taken it into their hands to do something.

Though it came to my attention that we have some people in the community doing a project called RuneLives. I approached them because it's in the community's best interest if we can work together, as opposed to dividing the community. So this is what we're trying to do now.

With this, we will likely have two worlds for Dodian. Details are quite thin yet, but it essentially means one client, but you may play both servers/worlds. We will also be adding HoocH to the staff team. He will mainly be someone to help me make good decisions for our server.
