    24 player custom support, wide screen support, rumor has it HD version is coming soon. This is HUGE!! Zwiebel what does this mean for Gaias? Would you ever increase map size to like 20 players? Could have Battlegrounds of like 10v10 or even raids on dungeons calibrated for more players

    This patch is a complete game-changer for me. If this comes live, then I'll be able to refactor and clean up lots of mechanics and systems in the game and I'll be able to step away from abusing bugs for many things in the game.

    This will, however, require lots of work in terms of rebuilding the underlying systems like the talent and ability system, unit stats, etc.


    This is huge and rebuilding Gaias from the ground up is now possible. To answer the question, though: I don't think Gaias needs extended player slots. It's hard enough to fill one game and the game UI still doesn't allow for more quickbar hero icons as far as I know.


    I'm going through the list of new natives now and it seems that there are also new UI natives that might allow me to do some crazy stuff in the future. Can't wait to tinker around with it.




    EDIT: Holy shit this patch is CRAZY! I'm not gonna lie... I will probably scrap 90% of the internal game systems and recode Gaias from scratch...

    ... the waiting time for the official 1.29 release is really frustrating. I can't start coding until we get the official release, because I need a stable code base to work with.

    Holidays are almost over and I couldn't do shit.

    I'm getting a little pissed over here.
