News and Announcements / FOnline: Battleground
« on: January 22, 2017, 08:53:39 PM »
While digging in old FOnline stuff, I've found a real diamond  :D And here I'm posting it, as it takes no resources to launch it!



FOnline: Battleground
is an old, simple server based on UT-mod written by John somewhere in 2011, and based partially on our old project - FOnline: Wasteland 2155.

Key features:
- Single arena for fast PvP,
- You download the client, create the character and jump into action,
- Experience & equipment are free,
- Tournament is automated, matches start on their own as soon as there is at least one player in both teams,
- Members of each team and their frags are listed on the sides of the screen,
- Kills and special awards (first blood, double kill etc.) are announced - just like in Unreal Tournament!
- Players in lobby see whole battlefield,
- First aid/doctor cooldown duration changed to 60 seconds,
- Hotkey for aiming body parts: Y, U, H, J,
- Hotkey for reloading weapon: R,
- Perk list is available here.

Tournament mechanics:
1. The match will start if at least one player is present in both teams.
2. The match will last until only one team is alive on the battlefield.
3. After each match, there is a short break to rearm.
4. To leave the match, speak to the guy in black robes during the break.

Instructions:
1. Download client from here (184mb) and unzip it,
2. Put master.dat and critter.dat in client directory (or only fallout.dat, but you need to make appropriate change in DataFiles.cfg),
3. Launch the client,
4. Register a new character and login to the game,
5. Speak to NPCs to gain levels and receive gear, then ask NPC in black robes to join one of fighting parties,
6. FIGHT!

Have fun!

News and Announcements / Discord server
« on: October 17, 2016, 06:25:05 PM »
We have a Discord server since few days and it will replace the old IRC channel for us. It should be a lot better way to communicate with other players, post trade offers or find a group to play with. And of course to get some help from game staff. I've announced it in game and some players joined it already (around 50 until now).

Here's a link to join it: https://discord.gg/qj4wVv7

You can use it in browser, but there are applications for PC, iOS, Android devices and they are quite good.
Discord also has voice channels if you need them.

Also, I replaced IRC link at the top of forum page to make it easier.

Changelog 07/04/2016

Changes in the previous update have been reverted:
- Full loot enabled (players drop everything on death!),
- Weapon drops on the ground after a proper critical hit,
- PvP steal enabled again.

BE CAREFUL! With full drop enabled again, you will lose all items you're carrying if you get killed. We will not refund any lost items.



Explained here.

Yep, the "April Fools update" will be reverted tonight.  It's been a week of testing this experiment and for now it's enough.

The results were not very surprising to me, I discussed it with few players in the past (thanks Seki and others) and conclusions were pretty close to what happened. More PvP and more action because less risk involved, but with less risk/reward involved the gameplay loses some thrill, especially that with no drop, the game loses some depth and this would need to be covered with more types of activity, as much in PvE as in PvP.

The next thing is that dying needs to have a penalty that hurts more or less. With full loot enabled, dying hurts experienced players not much (because they have more resources and know how to get new ones easily), but it's extremely harsh for newbs and casual, that's why they don't try some parts of the game at all or just ragequit. We have some ideas how to change it and we will try it in next season, where we can introduce large changes in other areas as well.

The problem with FOnline in general is that it's a full loot game for hardcore players. Players come and go, many ragequit very fast and it's extremely visible from perspective of any admin. Since Reloaded started, we've been trying to make the game easier for casuals and newbs and this game is much more newcomer-friendly than FOnline: 2238 ever was. We'll still follow this path.

Thanks for opinions and for participating in this (involuntary) test  ;)

The Workshop / Mapper Guide
« on: February 01, 2016, 09:51:26 PM »
Introduction:

  • This thread will contain my guide for FOnline mapper. I will gradually translate and update my old guide which can be found here.
  • The mapper package is quite different this time, because it contains more than 1000 various maps - Fallout 1 & 2 maps converted to FOnline format, 2238 source maps, TLA maps and also some maps from unfinished Wasteland 2155 project. In addition, it contains several template maps which are very handy in fast mapping, and of course the everlasting great "e_desert1" map.
  • Questions about making maps and mapper should be posted here
  • Note: this version of mapper is compatible with our post-wipe Reloaded.

Download links:

Mapper download link (270 MB)
Readme file

Tools:

MapperColorTool by Kilgore - tool for calculating color numbers
Fonline Color Converter by Cubik - same as above, but you might like it better

Installation:

1. Download package.
2. Unzip package.
3. Copy "fallout.dat" from your FOnline client to mapper's /data directory.
4. Run Mapper.exe

Off-topic discussions / FOnline Bible
« on: December 06, 2015, 04:25:11 PM »
Post FOnline memes, epic quotes and other stuff that is specific to FOnline. Doesn't matter which server. If they are good, I will include them in the first post.

Some fast examples:

Xoen's Cow - a guy lost his brahmin with some stuff, which resulted in probably the fastest growing thread in FOnline forums ever (river of tears included)
http://fodev.net/forum/index.php/topic,615.0.html
http://fodev.net/forum/index.php/topic,628.0.html

Wipe soon
When is wipe? The only answer is always: soon. The definition is here: http://www.fonline-reloaded.net/wiki/index.php?title=Soon

FA FA FA Proterran - happened in 2009 during some Town Control fight in Den, BBS vs North Alliance or whatever it was. Somebody scored a knockout on Nice Boat who was recording the video, and this was his shout to the nearest gang member. Actually, I don't remember whether proper FA has been given or not.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjKOMB8Ljco&feature=youtu.be (thanks V_guessWho)

BBS is here, the town is safe - the typical line when BBS took over some town and started killing everyone on sight. At first it was: "BBS is here, the town is safe for trade, adventurers and quests".

PKs at mine! Please help! - was a common shout to lure town defenders out of militia range during so-called RP projects in Redding and Broken Hills on FOnline: 2238.

Wasteland is harsh - used to answer when somebody is complaining about dying, losing stuff or high difficulty level.

The Workshop / Reloaded 2nd Session Source
« on: December 01, 2015, 08:45:01 PM »
Here we go again, many people asked me about it, so it's time to publish up-to-date game source. It contains many bugfixes, changes and new features since the previous edition, so it's better to use this one. You can host it locally, modify it, test it, play it or whatever.

Source comes in two parts:

Part 1:
Contains Server files, Mapper and Tools.
Download link

Part 2:
Contains full client.
Download link

Note:
- This source is from 2nd Season. It contains all changes before and including this update.
- This is current version of what's running on Reloaded at the time of posting.
- All credits for what was already in FOnline 2238 source, go to Rotators of course.
- We provide no support for this because we don't have time for it. If you need help with modding FOnline, you should head to http://fodev.net and ask there. Other than that, you are on your own.

Make sure to check these:
Open Source FOnline: 2238

Have fun!

News and Announcements / Hiring moderators
« on: November 28, 2015, 07:37:20 PM »
Hello,

We are looking for moderators of following forum boards:
- French
- Polish
- Russian
- Czech
- Spanish
- Barter Ground
- (optionally) The Thunderdome

Requirements:
- Being a forum member for a while,
- As neutral towards other factions/players as possible,
- Mature behaviour,
- Being transparent; removing only serious crap, especially in case of Thunderdome; Reloaded forum is not nazi-moderated and I don't want it to be, ever. There is not much work with moderating this forum most of the time, but sometimes trash is being posted and it should be removed,
- Well, if you think you won't be around in a month or two, then you shouldn't apply; we don't want to look for a new person every month,
- An ability to stay calm despite being the target of a verbal offense will be useful; some people can get upset about their posts being removed; you are not likely to get many thanks from the community, but you will surely receive some hate & flame;
- Of course, if you screw up, then well
Spoiler

If you feel you are the right person to do some voluntary work and you meet all the requirements, PM me or post in this topic. I know that some people applied for it in the past, but sorry guys, I don't remember who was it - please reapply.
