(08/07 13:02:06) Korov’ev: If there’s anyone new: welcome to the Cavern! You picked the best time to visit πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:02:15) Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:
(08/07 13:02:21) Korov’ev: 1. Please *keep chatter to a minimum* while speakers are talking. The occasional comment or emote is fine, but be respectful and let the speaker finish.
(08/07 13:02:34) Korov’ev: 2. If you have a question for a speaker, please don’t ask it directly: PM it to me. Be sure a “?” is somewhere in it to properly log the question in the queue.
(08/07 13:02:43) Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.
(08/07 13:02:53) Korov’ev: 4. If a question requires a long explanation, we may have to skip it to keep things moving. In that case, you can always PM any speaker once they’ve left the stage.
(08/07 13:03:01) Korov’ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of this meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers’ site: https://guildofmessengers.org/
(08/07 13:03:09) Korov’ev: Of course, you can start your own chatlog with “/startlog”.
(08/07 13:03:32) Korov’ev: First, let’s hear about what’s coming up in the Cavern, from Minasunda!

(08/07 13:03:56) Minasunda: shorah everyone – I would like to inform you about two upcoming events.
(08/07 13:03:58) ScottMiller claps his hands
(08/07 13:04:12) Minasunda: The first one will take place on 13. August at 13 KI – that is… next Friday.
(08/07 13:04:21) Ro”Jethhe flinches
(08/07 13:04:24) Minasunda: I hope you have not a problem with Friday the 13th. πŸ˜› But I can assure you – you are safe in the cavern πŸ˜€
(08/07 13:04:30) Ro”Jethhe: Friday the 13TH!
(08/07 13:04:40) Minasunda: We will have a “Caribbean Night” with hot music and cool (unfortunately only virtual) drinks. :))
(08/07 13:04:45) Scharminius claps his hands
(08/07 13:04:50) skyisblu cheers
(08/07 13:04:53) Scharminius cheers
(08/07 13:04:54) PodHopper: best day of the year Ro πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:04:55) Minasunda: It will be in Mir-O-Bot’s Eder Gira, so we have some water to refreshing πŸ˜‰ To get there, PM “to gira” to Mir-O-Bot. His KI number is 32319. You should have him on your buddy list.
(08/07 13:05:10) Minasunda: Eternal Seeker streams the music for us: www.urutunes.com/Seeker.
(08/07 13:05:22) Minasunda: The second event is the “D’ni Day of Dancing” on 3. September 13 KI – a Friday too
(08/07 13:05:31) Ro”Jethhe: BYOVD πŸ˜€
(08/07 13:05:35) Minasunda: That will take place in Mir-O-Bot’s Teledahn. To get there, PM “to teledahn” to Mir-O-Bot.
(08/07 13:05:48) Minasunda: Here, too, Eternal Seeker will stream the music.
(08/07 13:05:48) TheRealAndreMz growls as Ro took the words from my mouth
(08/07 13:06:01) Minasunda: The first part of the event will be a show part of the Nulp Dance Group, the second part will be dance for everyone.
(08/07 13:06:12) Minasunda: We plan again to include everyone in the dance FROM TIME TO TIME.
(08/07 13:06:26) Minasunda: Since there are some of us who do NOT want to participate in the forced dance, I would like to point out again that you have the opportunity to prevent your dancing with PM “ignoreme” to Mir-O-Bot
(08/07 13:06:42) Minasunda: But note !!!! this applies to ALL bot commands. So you shouldn’t do it until you’ve reached the event location. πŸ˜€
(08/07 13:06:57) Minasunda: Unfortunately there is not a automatic uningnore function. So please let Mirphak or me know after the event if you want to end this bot ignore.
[Server crashed] (08/07 13:28:11) Christian Walther: Hello again
(08/07 13:28:22) Korov’ev: we have power again!
(08/07 13:29:04) Doobes: Thanks to Chogon…on his day off, no less. πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:29:15) Argo: three cheers for chogon
(08/07 13:29:22) Minasunda: yeah
(08/07 13:29:22) Korov’ev cheers
(08/07 13:29:27) Minasunda cheers
(08/07 13:29:32) Doobes: Chogon is our Scotty…the miracle worker. πŸ˜€
(08/07 13:29:40) Minasunda: indeed πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:29:41) PodHopper: wb everyone πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:29:42) Jules Lavisham: Man goes above and beyond, he really does
(08/07 13:29:43) Doobes: He makes it go.
(08/07 13:29:51) PodHopper: indeed
(08/07 13:29:57) Jules Lavisham: Knows where to put the bit of stick about
(08/07 13:30:05) Doobes: Wouldn’t have what we have now here in MOULa without him.
(08/07 13:30:42) ScottMiller: geez, did everyone have a net6 crash?!
(08/07 13:30:49) Minasunda: let me know when I can continue, Kor πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:30:50) PodHopper: sort of
(08/07 13:30:53) Korov’ev: Yep, evryone
(08/07 13:30:54) Minasunda: net2
(08/07 13:30:55) Doobes: Yes, Scott.
(08/07 13:30:56) Scharminius: Net 2 crash, Scott
(08/07 13:31:03) Musica3: Mine was Net2
(08/07 13:31:15) Korov’ev: I think we can continue.
(08/07 13:31:20) ScottMiller: took me forever for Uru Live to run again, too!
(08/07 13:31:21) Minasunda: ok πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:31:22) Doobes: Net 2’s, Net 6’s…not just you. Server crash. Luckily, Chogon hadn’t stepped away yet so he rebooted.
(08/07 13:31:25) Korov’ev: We were at the “D’ni Day of Dancing” event…
(08/07 13:31:28) Scharminius assumes Net2 means the Server had a disconnect, while Net6 means Client had a disconnect
(08/07 13:31:32) Minasunda: a very strange interruption lol
(08/07 13:31:47) Doobes: Yup, that was all of us, ScottMiller, so nothing on your end, luckily.
(08/07 13:31:48) Marten: Per Chogon in Discord: The backend server crashed, then he needed to reboot the frontend.
(08/07 13:31:54) Ro*Jethhe: I once get a Net13 Error. Horrible
(08/07 13:32:01) Minasunda: I think we were at the “ignoreme” command for the non-dancers πŸ˜‰ Unfortunately there is not a automatic uningnore function. So please let Mirphak or me know after the event if you want to end this bot ignore.
(08/07 13:32:07) Christian Walther: On a Frida`y?
(08/07 13:32:25) Minasunda: Mirphak will then delete you from the bot’s ignore list so that you can use it as usual.
(08/07 13:32:44) Minasunda: For the forced dance: It will be the same dances that you saw in the show part. You can look for a partner or, of course, dance alone πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:32:56) Minasunda: With a partner, the distance should be about 5 sidesteps. so that you don’t step on each other’s feet or hit each other’s heads πŸ˜€
(08/07 13:33:05) Doobes: Ouch!
(08/07 13:33:14) Minasunda: I look forward to seeing you at the events and wish you fun. Thank you for your attention.
(08/07 13:33:23) Minasunda: any questions ?
(08/07 13:33:29) Korov’ev: Both events are on Friday
(08/07 13:33:34) Minasunda: yep
(08/07 13:33:42) Doobes: Nice. πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:33:46) Minasunda: 13 August and 3. September
(08/07 13:33:54) Korov’ev claps his hands
(08/07 13:33:55) Korov’ev: Thank you Minasunda!
(08/07 13:33:58) Aurelias claps her hands
(08/07 13:33:59) Doobes claps his hands
(08/07 13:33:59) cjherkeless claps his hands
(08/07 13:33:59) Scharminius claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:00) rarified claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:00) PodHopper claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:00) Christian Walther claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:06) MindWalker claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:06) Argo claps her hands
(08/07 13:34:07) Jules Lavisham claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:11) Mirphak claps his hands
(08/07 13:34:17) Korov’ev: And like every month, next week there’ll be a Cavern Tour,
(08/07 13:34:22) Korov’ev: on Saturday, August 14, at 10:00 KIT, starting in Cavern Tour’s Hood.
(08/07 13:34:30) Korov’ev: The host, Larry LeDeay, uses his Twitch channel for the presentation, so you will need to keep a browser or the app open in the background: http://twitch.tv/LWF58
(08/07 13:34:40) Korov’ev: Videos will be available for two weeks after the tour. The stream will be simulcasted on Facebook and Youtube.
(08/07 13:34:48) Korov’ev: Mir-o-Bot (KI# 32319) is usually employed for special effects and long-distance travel (and to avoid stairs).
(08/07 13:34:54) Korov’ev: New info will be shared at this tour!
(08/07 13:35:17) Korov’ev: Now, some updates on the age restoration front: let’s hear from Doobes!
(08/07 13:35:22) Korov’ev claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:23) cjherkeless claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:24) rarified claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:25) thoekenem claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:26) PodHopper claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:27) Aurelias claps her hands
(08/07 13:35:28) Mirphak claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:29) Jules Lavisham claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:30) Adam {Hoikas} trolls his hands
(08/07 13:35:35) Theo claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:39) Doobes: Shorah, my fellow D’nizens. XD
(08/07 13:35:46) Argo waves hello
(08/07 13:35:48) Doobes: Glad we’re all back after that “power outage” we all saw. πŸ˜›
(08/07 13:35:54) ScottMiller claps his hands
(08/07 13:35:59) Doobes: I’m back to give you a short update on the status of Descent…which, if you’ll recall, I’ve announced a few times that it will be greatly expanded here in MOULa…most recently during the Mysterium fan development panel.
(08/07 13:36:00) ShilohOBrien sigh
(08/07 13:36:12) Doobes: Thanks to a few more additions and fixes from Sirius to the ZLZ Age Importer, I was able to reimport Myst V’s version with more usable animations.
(08/07 13:36:27) Doobes: This will save me considerable time given I would have had to reanimate almost everything without those changes, so a big thank you to Sirius for that. πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:36:43) ShilohOBrien: WOOT~
(08/07 13:36:44) Doobes: And to any others I missed who contributed to it, of course. πŸ˜‰
(08/07 13:36:53) Doobes: So in the spirit of transparency and openness, I’ve tweaked the patented “phase” system to work in a more OOC capacity for the project.
(08/07 13:37:05) Doobes: This will hopefully give everyone an idea of the progress of things.
(08/07 13:37:16) Doobes: Currently, we’re in Phase 1. This means it’s preliminary conversion of the old content…in this case, Myst V’s versions of Descent.
(08/07 13:37:29) Doobes: This was done because it’s the most “complete” version available for easy conversion.
(08/07 13:37:40) Doobes: Again, thanks to the aforementioned fixes, that’s going quite well despite starting from scratch again.
(08/07 13:37:53) Doobes: This is still a good thing as I have quite a bit more knowledge of what the ZLZ importer does and how to properly adjust things than I did when I first started.
(08/07 13:38:06) Doobes: As the work continues, we’ll migrate to new phases. They are as follows:
(08/07 13:38:21) Doobes: Phase 2: Once the content is fully converted 1 to 1 in Phase 1, there will be changes, adjustments, and additions to help bring things more in line with canon as well as add new features.
(08/07 13:38:35) Doobes: This will also include the content from the Intangibles material.
(08/07 13:38:49) Doobes: As I’ve said, I hope to take the best elements of the demo, the URU version, and the Myst V version and meld them into something completely different for everyone to experience.
(08/07 13:39:03) ShilohOBrien cheers
(08/07 13:39:10) Doobes: OK, maybe not *too* different, but you get the idea. πŸ˜‰
(08/07 13:39:16) Theo cheers
(08/07 13:39:17) philipgr cheers
(08/07 13:39:19) Doobes: Note that I’m also open to suggestions for adding not-too-intrusive explorer content to not only get the community more involved, but to show the shaft as being well-traveled and possessing a strong explorer presence even if nobody is there at the time.
(08/07 13:39:23) Thumbs up from cjherkeless
(08/07 13:39:40) Doobes: So this will hopefully be the “Definitive” version, if you will. πŸ˜›
(08/07 13:39:53) Doobes: Phase 3: Wiring. This one’s going to be tricky as this version of Descent hasn’t been wired for multiplayer before. The hope is that the whole thing can be solvable either alone or together in the true spirit of URU when all is said and done.
(08/07 13:40:12) Doobes: And hopefully have a different feel than previous versions.
(08/07 13:40:14) Thumbs up from Minasunda
(08/07 13:40:17) MindWalker: The Definitive Descent does sound pretty catchy!
(08/07 13:40:28) Doobes: Phase 4: Testing. This is when things are good enough to turn into rarified for proper testing on Minkata. This is arguable the most important phase as it’ll hopefully work out all the bugs and inconsistencies before sending it off to Chogon for inclusion on MOULa.
(08/07 13:40:37) Doobes: *arguably
(08/07 13:40:54) cjherkeless: URU: Prepare to Descend edition
(08/07 13:40:57) Doobes: When Phase 4 comes up, I’ll most likely make an open call for any and all testers who want to go through the entirety of the new Descent to see what they find. Really try to break things if they can so we can fix them properly.
(08/07 13:41:12) Doobes: If Cyan sends any notes on it (which they are welcome to do if they have the time, of course), then any major changes will need to be rechecked once implemented.
(08/07 13:41:31) Doobes: And Phase 5…ie everyone’s favorite…is when the path to D’ni will finally be open to the public!
(08/07 13:41:47) Doobes: Now once again, I must temper expectations…this is a major project and I want to give it as much care and regard as I can.
(08/07 13:42:00) Doobes: That may mean that it’ll take awhile to finish to almost everyone’s expectations.
(08/07 13:42:14) Doobes: Note that, depending on how much help I can get on both the lore and modeling end of things, we may have to open the complete path in parts.
(08/07 13:42:32) Doobes: This would mean that, initially, you’d get about the same distance down the path as you would in Myst V, plus hopefully a new section to explore.
(08/07 13:42:53) Doobes: The full path would gradually open up more and more as we go until one can finally reach D’ni from the surface. Remember, this is supposed to be a loooooong journey and we want to do this right. πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:43:07) Doobes: We’ll see how things go…but I’m optimistic!
(08/07 13:43:16) Doobes: So that’s all I have for now. Any questions?
(08/07 13:43:29) rarified: The proper phrase is “Soon ™”
(08/07 13:43:30) ScottMiller: yes I have one….
(08/07 13:43:37) Doobes: Go ahead.
(08/07 13:43:40) Korov’ev: go ahead
(08/07 13:43:49) ShilohOBrien: Like Aslan, Doobes calls all times “soon”.
(08/07 13:44:08) Tom(Samoth): Oh… missed a lot…
(08/07 13:44:10) ScottMiller: what is the time line to completion and will it be open to the general public or will the shards need to be installed?
(08/07 13:44:33) Doobes: If all goes well, I’m hoping…next year sometime? Also, it will be brought to Minkata for testing before coming here.
(08/07 13:44:49) Doobes: Again, it depends on how much I get done between now and then.
(08/07 13:44:51) MindWalker: In Myst V, the Direbo book was in the Descent. Any ideas on bringing that up, too (as a rest-age)?
(08/07 13:45:08) Korov’ev: PM the questions to me, please πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:45:31) Doobes: Yes actually…but just a rest Age…meaning we may have to add some appropriate structures to fill it out a bit once the Bahro bubbles are gone.
(08/07 13:45:57) Doobes: Also, there won’t be nearly as many “rest areas” as previously seen as those were not canon and were only added for gameplay purposes.
(08/07 13:46:15) Doobes: We’ll figure out an alternative so one can save progress along the trip.
(08/07 13:46:20) MindWalker: Sorry – great and – sure πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:46:26) Doobes: (most likely in Phase 2 or 3)
(08/07 13:46:40) Korov’ev: Our next question is from Scharminius.
(08/07 13:46:40) Korov’ev: [Scharminius] What if, as a reward, Cyan willing, Cleft were opened up as a public age?
(08/07 13:47:00) Doobes: We’d have to check with them. That also isn’t really set up for multiplayer…but it could be, I suppose.
(08/07 13:47:05) Doobes: Plus, puzzle elements to consider.
(08/07 13:47:18) Scharminius: K’veer didn’t have ’em… πŸ˜‰
(08/07 13:47:35) Korov’ev: Our next question is from Argo.
(08/07 13:47:35) Korov’ev: [Argo] what kind of community contributions beyond testing would you be looking for, or will that be announced at the time you’re ready for it?
(08/07 13:48:26) Doobes: Any writings or the like that could be inserted along the journey. Presumably about people’s travels in D’ni or even down the GS itself.
(08/07 13:48:49) Doobes: I’ll elaborate more when I figure out what else we can do with it. I do want some of your work in there though to show our presence. πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:48:52) Korov’ev: Maybe a bulletin board πŸ˜€
(08/07 13:49:12) Doobes: Any more questions? I should probably get off the stage for the next speaker. πŸ˜›
(08/07 13:49:18) Korov’ev: Our next question is from ScottMiller.
(08/07 13:49:18) Korov’ev: [ScottMiller] will all this be open to the general public or will the shards need to be installed?
(08/07 13:49:36) Adam {Hoikas}: The shards are open to the general public…
(08/07 13:49:47) judyg: no shards please
(08/07 13:49:48) Doobes: Depends on which shard you’re referring to. All of them need to be installed at one point. Gehn and Minkata are open to the public though.
(08/07 13:50:00) Doobes: Uh, we’re technically on a shard now. πŸ˜›
(08/07 13:50:16) Adam {Hoikas}: ok, judyg, we will immediately stop working on MOULa because you don’t want anymore shards…
(08/07 13:50:28) judyg: lol!
(08/07 13:50:30) Doobes: Anyway, if there’s more questions, I’ll take them via PM. Thanks everyone!
(08/07 13:50:33) Doobes bows

(08/07 13:53:24) Kong: awesome
(08/07 13:53:37) rarified: fleet of testers I think we have put together a pretty good update for you.
(08/07 13:54:01) rarified: I have noticed that some new visitors to Minkata have remarked on the improvements
(08/07 13:54:22) rarified: they have noticed. There are improvements both to the client as well as selected locations
(08/07 13:54:24) rarified: in the game.
(08/07 13:54:29) rarified: Marten …
(08/07 13:54:33) rarified bows
(08/07 13:54:51) Marten: It’s awesome how community involvement has grown in the past year. People with different skills and talents have come together to produce content and fixes for the upcoming release. And we can’t forget our Testers either.
(08/07 13:55:00) rarified: here has taken the lead on finding the most bang-for-the buck fixes
(08/07 13:55:09) rarified: for the user interface.
(08/07 13:55:15) Marten: With every release, we find surprises along the funnel from H’uru through
(08/07 13:55:19) rarified: Go ahead if you want to summarize.
(08/07 13:55:20) Marten: whoops
(08/07 13:55:27) Doobes can’t thank all the testers enough for their help!
(08/07 13:55:36) Marten: When you said “Marten …” I thought that was my opening to talk πŸ™‚
(08/07 13:55:43) Marten: With every release, we find surprises along the funnel from H’uru through Minkata Shard to Staging and on to MOULa. And when that happens, Adam says, “This is why we test.”
(08/07 13:55:53) Marten: Testing doesn’t guarantee every release is perfect, but we learn from our mistakes, and I can assure you things would be a lot rougher without our Testers. So thank you to everyone contributing to the process!
(08/07 13:56:06) Thumbs up from rarified
(08/07 13:56:07) Marten: (that’s all I had)
(08/07 13:56:39) rarified: We also benefited from improvements to various ages in D’ni, particularly when
(08/07 13:56:40) SandDoone claps her hands
(08/07 13:56:58) rarified: you were supposed to be moving somewhere and it didn’t go as planned.
(08/07 13:57:21) rarified: Adam, Hazado, and others have been digging into the content to fix those issues.
(08/07 13:57:44) rarified: The list of fixes is too long to go through here, but you can get a teaser by visiting
(08/07 13:57:58) rarified: https://foundry.openuru.org/assets/Foundry/ReleaseNotes-194.txt
(08/07 13:58:06) rarified: The Plan:
(08/07 13:58:26) rarified: I am putting together the parts to deliver to Cyan now. Sometime this week I’ll send them over.
(08/07 13:59:03) rarified: Chogon says he thinks he could get the changes onto Cyan’s test shard (“staging”) within a
(08/07 13:59:24) rarified: couple of days. I’ve recommended at least a week of exposure on Staging
(08/07 13:59:37) rarified: before it moves onto MOULa.
(08/07 14:00:05) rarified: There are a lot of wheels in motion with this update, so an abundance of caution is called for.
(08/07 14:00:31) rarified: I hope to hear good things about your experiences here at the next AGM πŸ˜€
(08/07 14:01:00) rarified: (And even the not-so-good if they happen! But please participate on the Cyan and OpenUru
(08/07 14:01:15) rarified: Discord servers to let us know if problems as soon as you discover them.)
(08/07 14:01:48) rarified: For the Future. The next release cycle is tenatively biased toward content improvement
(08/07 14:02:15) rarified: and additions. It will be targeted to arrive before Christmas (late November or December).
(08/07 14:02:27) rarified: Anything to add, Marten?

(08/07 14:04:07) Korov’ev: In July, we finished Alabaster by Dulcamara, explored Laki’anay (and connected ages) by the New Age Project, and began working on Tentsahveet by Jhon J. Jaguar.

(08/07 14:04:28) Korov’ev: JJJ just released Edereden, the last age in his series; my idea is to wait at least until it’s released for offline play.

(08/07 14:04:45) Korov’ev: Then either this month or the next we’ll begin the Path of the Lost Ages by Melvin, starting in Palamary bay.
