Open Source

Almost a month ago, now, we announced that Elysium would be going open source. Through all of this, it’s been a wonderful step in the right direction for both the Elysium project, and the legacy movement in general. We wish to continue and reach out our arms to new, aspiring developers as well as veteran developers, to join the Open source community we have established.

We'd like to thank all of our contributors to the open source project for many of the fixes provided below. We've been encouraged by many of the excellent fixes submitted and issues reported and look forwards to continue to work with our community on improving the project.

As a final note, we'll be running Ahn'qiraj testing this weekend with guilds selected from the Anathema application process.

"Group leadership should no longer change players when zoning"

Made me very happy when it started working correctly again. You never really miss something until it is gone and this frustrated me to no end.

Thanks for the fixes

Perhaps this list should be made public. Seems like it was decided based off timezone availability more than anything else.

Not bad at all. The boat/zeppelin bug for Mac users has always been afflicting each and every single private project I've played on, this would be the first time someone gets it fixed - to my knowledge, and if confirmed.

I have spent quite some time fixing this up and I can confirm it works locally (self-hosted server based on the Elysium code). If this doesn't work in production, I'm out of ideas to what issue might be.

 

edit: Currently testing in production. 2500 online and it still works..!
