[Recruitment] ATHEN PALADINS - recruitment: open [Clans]

News

Our Biodome keys farming went very well (again) and so we’ll have a Biodome day this week in raids! We plan on running Biodome more often, like in the past, as it seems there is more interest for it now. Maybe thanks to all the returning players working on lower characters, or, yes, the real new players.

This week, we’ll highlight again some other posts among the many on AP forums:

We’re happy to announce that the beloved Nemmo and Hackus are back in AO and joined AP! :wink:

We’re going to have a bit more Biodome raids as it seems there is a higher need now for them.

We’re working on providing more scheduled opportunities (to facilitate teams making) for activities like quest or instances, like with do for PoH or DB instances, and recently Neretva Canyon quest. First new introduction: scheduled Arid Rift team for Monday Nov. 4.

AP Raids Oct 28 - Nov 3 - Register for DB quest

ATTENTION: countries are starting to switch to “Winter time offset”, so we adapted our GMT raids times so raids start at the same time as before at your place. For some countries, though, it will take between one and two weeks to be perfectly set. (US and Canada will go back 1 hour on Nov. 3)

19:30GMT = 2:30PM EST
18:30GMT = 1:30PM EST

Just a quick post because I’m out of town today (but not out of AO!)

First, we’re happy to welcome back after several years one of the founders of AP, who stood at the top of the West Athen watchtower more than 16 years ago, as the double suns were rising, to create Athen Paladins: Kosstoss, our friend and general.

He is one of the many old members and old players joining or rejoining us.

News

  • We started to develop a news series of raids or team activity for people who can’t always -or at all- join our usual scheduled raids in the evening GMT. For the moment, we improvise those raids depending on the people online. But we hope to be able to have a schedule. (Among the Raid Leaders for those raids: Bonniedoom, Falconcrat, Mastergengi, Sirwappy, Lordkosh…)

  • As it seems there is a new interest in Biodome raids, we are now scheduling them more often.

FC has announced that on Thursday 14, there will be a downtime of 8 hours for “extended maintenance”, starting at 14:00GMT (2PM).

This means we won’t be able to do APFs on Thursday 14 as the servers won’t be up.

So, yesterday Monday, we have a full “improvised” APF run. Special thanks to Lodkosh (Demonga) who lead it, as I was not able to stay online. :slight_smile:

We’ll have APFs again Saturday. :slight_smile:

Edit: finally as the servers went online earlier than expected, we did a full APFs raid with very good numbers. ::smiley:

Just a quick post today…

News

We have been witnessing the coming back of old and very old players over this year. Our friends and allies of Atrox Caelestis have witnessed the same phenomenon. (Navian, their president, even posted briefly about it in AC’s thread "Nice to see old players returning to ao, now if only FC would show the game same love ".)

Two days ago, we had an application from a player who hadn’t been in AO for 16 years and his happy to be there again!

And as I mentioned here several times, AP always have old members coming back.

The formidable potential -and commercial potential- of the AO community has always been, at least apparently, somehow underestimated or mismanaged. But as I have been relatively close to some GD or Devs or GMs in the past, I know that many of them totally understood that potential. Why didn’t this translate into the right business policies? I still don’t know and probably never will.

But for a “niche” game (due to its complexity), AO was a potential (niche) gold mine. Most former AO players have a very special place for AO in their hearts. What can be done with the community is considerable. If only…

Raids Nov 18 - Nov 24

In addition to these scheduled raids that happen in the evening GMT, we have several raids or activities in AP, to name some dedicated raid leaders who make them happen (most often during GMT night, sometimes GMT afternoon): Falcondoct, Masterengi, Lordkosh, Sirwappy, Bonniedoom and I can’t name them all.

So, we’re starting more activities for members -and of course members of The Alliance- who are in the time zones of USA, Canada, and, as a matter of fact, the American continent.

It’s no and easy thing to play AO if you’re in those times zones, as the population may not allow raiding easily, nor teaming for more than ordinary missions.

We always had some activities there but we would like to move forward, in an ever-going effort to keep AO fun and alive. :slight_smile:

So we’ll start this week by having 2 Dust Brigade quests: one, as usual, in the evening GMT, and another at 8:30PM EST (so 1:30AM GMT), for US and Canadian -and other similar time zones- members and friends in The Alliance.

Then we’re going to try to have some raids for the same time zones. That won’t be an easy task but we really want to work on this. :slight_smile:

After our test runs for raids during the" night GMT (so for Americas times zones, possibly Pacific), we are hoping to have something set for more or less the beginning of next year. :slight_smile: It’s not an easy work though. For the moment, we’ll stick to our regular raids, especially as the online presence of players is unpredictable during the Holidays period.

New Shadowlands Map

Our talented Bitnyyk, Officer of AP and also Org leader of CDN (Code Dragon Noir, French-speaking organization member of our Alliance), has, once again, carried out a new version of his fantastic map of Shadowlands.

Download the latest version either on Bit’s page or from AP servers:
Bit’s page: https://rubi-ka.net/bitnykk/
AP servers: http://www.athenpaladins.org/down/SLmap-v2.2.zip


Explanations By Bitnykk on Bit’s page, or http://www.athenpaladins.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=544 or below:

WARNING :
For most screens set upto 1300 pixels width definition, normal version is advised ; over 1300 pixels width definition, especially if text is hard for you to read, prefer wide version now available.

EASY INSTALLATION :
With any old version removed, extract archive in ao/cd_image/textures/PlanetMap ; you should obtain a new “SLmap” folder containing various files (bin, xml & txt) according to the version you downloaded.
At this point, just open ingame worldmap once in SL by hitting “P” & then click the “i” upperleft of that window > Select Map > choose SLmap link from the list ; that’s all done !11!!1
If you have an error hitting “P”, assuming you already got the map correctly installed, it’s fixed by chat command : /setoption ShadowlandMapIndexFile “SLmap/SLmap.txt” or /setoption ShadowlandMapIndexFile “SLmap/SLmapWide.txt”

VERSION & CHANGES :
2.2 - february 2020 => re-tuning of many positions ; mistyped / unreadable text corrected & missing added (3 quests included) ; noteworthy location icons added to top layer ; a big thanx to Uneedgsf for info/check help !
2.1 - february 2017 => Greedy Shade locations and nanos added ; few graphical elements readjusted ; several text overlaps and typos fixed ; catacombs entrance descriptions improved ; 3rd layer grid & number corrected.
2.0 - june 2016 => many cities & buildings of every zones graphically improved ; several NPC, spot or dynas updated ; few typos, dot overlaps, border bugs, grid coords or map positions corrected ; wide version added.
1.0 - december 2015 => playground removed ; backgrounds minimalized ; borders cleaned ; LoX enlighted ; layers optimized ; closeview repaired ; title font changed ; garden/sanct nanos refreshed ; new maps/NPC added.

GOALS BEHIND :
Idea is to go on from the best SL map we had so far, Onack’s AoSL, and keep informations updated in minimal filesize accordingly to last AO patches.

**NEW DISTRIBUTION :**Layer 1 => small map with minimal zone informations / Layer 2 => everything important dynabosses included / Layer 3 => nanos, quest related & various NPCs

FUTURE CHANGES :
Introduce new additions AO team will patch + community feedbacks & suggestions.

OFFICIAL THREADS :


Please post your feedback (about the SL map only !) there, what’s relevant and doable will be taken in consideration.

SPECIAL THANKS :
Onack for an inestimable work over years ; Novagen for hosting & sources ; Saavick for test & tricks ; Demoder & Cell-team for toolbox ; Alliance of Rimor for infos ; other players that helped (you know who you are).

So, quick notes:

  • Currently, we are starting to populate our Mondays that were “no scheduled raids” days with extra raids, picked according to the needs and feelings of the day, currently often the highly in demand sector 28. We’ll maybe add then to the schedule in the future.

  • Which brings us to the second point: our current goal is also to develop raids and for “US” and “Americas” time zones, and hopefully helping West Coast USA/Canada players as well as Pacific ones. Something we hope to achieve in the next months, maybe around our 17th anniversary in June hopefully.
