New Theme 2017

Hey everyone,

As you may notice i’ve made a new 2017 theme for the site, darker and green, and it should also be a bit more mobile friendly, with a responsive site theme. Although it isn’t 100% perfect for mobile, its a lot better then before =)

Recently i’ve been asked about the status of my Azerothica game on my forum, and I thought I might as well post it here, you can of course also read about it on my forum under General Chat sub forum.

Also soon on the 16th of June Azerothica will have its 6th Anniversairy, my site was created on June 16th 2011, its been a good 6 years so far, and I’m sure lots of you have had a lot of nawty fun in these 6 years =)

I haven’t really touched it since late 2015. I suppose I lost interest but also been busy with other things taking my attention. Surely I still wouldn’t mind seeing it progress.
 
However to give some kind of update regarding Azerothica, basically i’ll be using the Unity 3D engine. This is what I used since 2011 for experimentation. I’ve actually bought a plugin for Unity called Atavism. Today they have changed their business model slightly. To begin with they had as far as I remember, a 70 dollar version which gave access to hosting your own mmo on your own server with their license, and also cloud based solution where you pay monthly fees. I managed to buy the own hosting version for a mere 70 us dollars a few years back. Today the plugin has matured more and prices are much different. They no longer offer cloud based solutions, however all of the early access buyers of the plug in, have now been upgraded to the new “Atavism On Premises” license which is worth of 399 USD.
 
Atavism OP gives you the ability to use their plugin in unity and have 500 concurrent users connected to your game at any given time.
Product information can be found here http://www.neojac.com/index.php/atavism
 
The other Atavism license ATAVISM 2 OP ULTRA is kind of the same as the cheaper 399 USD version, except that this has unlimited amount of concurrent connections to the game. That means an unlimited amount of players can connect, theres no limit of 500 players to the server as the 399 dollar version, but to be fair 500 users is more then enough for now at this stage. I’m fairly happy I got the plugin at the early stage of only costing me 70 USD.
 
Also Atavism has a lot of information on their plugin and a lot of support too.

In short, this plugin will allow me to create an online MMO more easily because a lot of the elements that an MMO needs is already made with this plugin so that I do not need to start from scratch.
 
I highly recommend reading their changelogs even earlier versions. http://neojac.ca/aowiki/doku.php/changelogs
 
Their changelogs explain a lot about what the plugin is capable of doing =)
 
At the moment I do need someone who has experience with animation to assist in fixing some animation issues on the wow characters. I hope this shed some light on the current status of the azerothica mmo, it is right now on a halt and not really any development happening, but looking back, I remember some of the experiments i did alreaedy back in 2011 when i started my site, Unity is a nice game engine and fairly easy to get into =)

As a fun little timeline, you can see here how my site has evolved over the years and even look back at some of the old posts from back then =)
