Alter Aeon server updates for Apr 26, 14
Raise gold reward for museum jobs.
Add a ‘passgen’ command for generating random passwords.
Add linkdead tags to account character display.
WARNING – There has been a massive internal rework of the account
system, splitting accounts into the beginnings of a client/server
architecture that will allow Alter Aeon accounts to be used for Stellar
Aeon, Interceptor, and other games. If everything has gone as planned,
there should be no significant change to the account commands or how
accounts work for AA players.
Even though players shouldn’t notice a difference, this update is huge
huge from a code standpoint. Over 60 files were changed, with around
five thousand lines of code added or changed. There will be bugs, and
it’s possible that the entire playerbase may have to be reloaded from
backup. For the time being, the backup schedule will be set for about
every twelve hours just in case.
One of the only visible differences is that it may take a few seconds
for some account changes to take effect. For example, if you add or
remove an email address, it may take a few seconds before the add or
remove is visible in your account. Please wait a full ten seconds for
changes to propagate before reporting that your account isn’t updating.
With any luck, none of this will be a problem. This code was very
well tested and has been considered ‘stable’ for a couple of days now,
and we’re hoping there won’t be any major issues. Thanks for your
patience and support!
