Patch 1.11.0 - Ryzom is now Free To Play and new boss!
 
On Wednesday, March 9 between 09:00 and 11:00 GMT, the servers will be brought down for the implementation of patch 1.11.0.

This patch brings the following:

New Free Trial System

We are pleased to announce that from now on, players that create a new account can play Ryzom without time or place limits. Instead, free trial accounts are now limited to a maximum level of 125 in all different skills, enabling everyone to sample all aspects of Ryzom and to discover what makes this MMO unique. When you reach level 125 in a skill you can still continue playing, but you will gain no more experience points. The second limitation is storage: you cannot own any mektoub packers, use the inventory of your apartment or take any items from a guild hall.

Despite the freedom of this new system, we would like to remind you that Ryzom can only live on through your paid subscriptions. Thank you for the confidence you have in us.

New Zora´ enemy to fight: "Pei-Ruz the Rotten"

The Marauders' thirst for vengeance continues to grow. After Dante the Teaser, a new enemy makes his appearance. Although his camp has not yet been discovered, it is rumored that Pei-Ruz the Rotten wants you to experience the most terrible suffering. Homins should expect a fight.

If you want a sneak preview of this new marauder, log in on Wednesday, 9 March at 00:00 GMT. More info...

New Roleplay Event Sequence "Tears of the Emperor"

Dexton, Emperor of the Burning Desert, is gravely ill and the Fyros are working with the Zora´s to save him. Will they succeed to restore him to health and to restore him to power in the Desert? Dare the Matis take advantage of this temporary weakening of their old enemy? And how will the people of the late Governor Still Wyler enter into the balance?

These are just some questions that you will be faced with in the coming weeks. This sequence will provide large-scale interactions between the homin peoples of Atys. More than ever, your actions have an impact on the future of the bark.

But beware, any victory is deserved! To save the camp you choose, you must do better than others, but also do it faster! Because it is a race against time that just started... A race where the stakes will shape the face of the Atys of tomorrow...

An event in this sequence will be held on 14 March at 00:00 GMT.

Miscellaneous

Other changes:
- The visual quality of characters has been improved.
- Mektoub mounts can now store 3 times as much.
- Other small changes you will discover by yourself.

nice to see somethings happening, some thoughts though, mektoubs that can carry more isn't a good idea imo. it just encourages laziness, why not let homins own more mektoubs? then atleast homins will have the added responsibility to look after and manage extra animals. I'd prefer that than simply being able to pack 3x more on one animal. wheres the fun in that?

not sure how i feel about 125 lvl limit seems kinda high, you might be shooting yourself in the wallet but i guess give it a try.

would like to hear what else you all are working on... ;)

The increased storage is only for mounts, not for packers.

ahh ok my bad. i misread it :D sounds good then :)

Re: Patch 1.11.0 - Ryzom is now Free To Play and new boss!
 
The announcement says 'new accounts', but I was wondering if it might apply in three other cases:

1. Does the free play apply to existing accounts with no characters above 125 in any skill?

2. How about existing accounts with some characters above and some below 125?

3. If my sub runs out, can I still log in and play, just can't gain any XP until I get it back in order?


Also, in the case of new accounts, will they have forum access? Or restricted as trials have been in the past?


Regardless of the answers, I'm as hopeful as WG that this will bring us some new population. And I don't think we need fear dapper farmers. :p

Good idea but i have almost same questions of Sasi.

I suppose once a sub runs out, people can't gain more exp but they can still use their already gained 125+ skills, but what happens to the owned packers and apartment? Will they be locked till people resub?

If I understood correctly, you don't limit mount usage so it's clear why you are increasing its storage. If free people can use mount maybe the crafting will not be penalized too much, considering the new mount storage = 1 packer storage. With that and the inventory, crafting is manageable.

125 limit sounds good to me, expecially if you consider magic skills.

My understanding is that once you get paid account, you can't go back to free trial.

kerozcak is correct, you cant have it both ways :) ... but

a new free trial can have a mount with new 3x bulk but no other storage.

This is my understanding atm

All free trial accounts that were active at the moment of the patch have been converted to the new system.

Expired free trials remain expired.

The Official Linux version of Ryzom is available.

To get the latest version of Ryzom for Linux, go in the directory where you unpack Ryzom, double click on "ryzom_update.sh" and click on "Run in Terminal". It'll sync your ryzom directory with the official one. You can also use this script if some file are broken or missing in the ryzom directory.

I do hope that those people get an option to remove whatever they had placed in apartments or on packers before the change?
Otherwise they might loose valuable equipment and stuff.

Are you refering to anything in particular?

F2P. From what I've seen of the rest so far it's not a bad job, though kind of hard to get excited about stuff we should of had years ago.

Not heard any problems with the transfer from the old trial to the new trial regarding stored items yet.

The fact that they keep working on the game is a good sign. I like the improvements to the graphics, no more semi complete rendors or dancing kinchers in the distance.

Oh, so that's what they improved! :) I was a little baffled when I logged into my new account and saw no changes to the player-characters.

Hmm. I always get the bug to play again every year or so. The new free trial option may be a good way to get back in. There are so many free games of great quality, like LOTRO, that it seems silly to pay monthly now. I like the micro pay games, since I can either play totally free and not feel guilty that I am taking a few months off, or decide to pay crap loads for some silly thing like a unique mount.

Truthfully, I spend more on micro pay, so it is purely a psychological thing. Money is not an issue for me either, but knowing I am spending monthly for something I don't actively play all the time just makes my skin crawl. I closed my Ryzom accounts last time, specifically because of the monthly, as I was getting hooked on another game at the time.

I do like the mount storage boost and 125 level cap idea. I think I'll come back and make a new account or 2. My original account started within a few days of release. Prettiest game in the history of MMOs. Never let it die!!
