Koh-Dalan and Tyldalan

Postby Itep Edor » Tue Aug 10, 2021 2:15 pm

Shorah dear fellow explorers

Proudly we present our new ages to you, Koh-Dalan and Tyldalan.
It took longer than we thought and needed a lot of patience, but it's finally here.
There is a lot to discover and we wish you a lot of fun with it.
And remember, the way is the goal.

The idea:
An age in which we can all realize our dreams.
That is: animations, sound, music, seasons and reltopages and more... (Surprise)

The team:
Corvus, age builder, she made all the beautiful things, and Relto pages for the bananas and the bed.
Wodan, age builder, he built most of the age.
Falke, serveradmin, he maintained the Teamspeak-server and the game server.
Fruti, he is the python man, he wrote all the code.
Me, Itep, age builder, Windchimes, Sounds and Music.

Dulcamara also helped to decorate the cave.

Sometimes it takes a little moment before an animation starts, so please be patient.

Publishing this age means a lot to me therefore my deepest thanks to the team! :)

You can find the book to Koh-Dalan in the bottom row of your bookshelf.

It is now in UAM.

Warning: Don't go swimming in the winter, it's too cold... ;)
Please be aware when you reset the age, it affects all the players. In every version and also in Tyldalan :!:

D'ni number converter

Addendum:

Now that my initial nervousness has calmed down a bit, I'd like to add a few comments.

We started our project about ten years ago. Yes, really ten years! How quickly time flies. :lol:

Many things, such as computer hardware, have changed during this time.
Today, we would certainly do certain things differently.

During this time I learned something very important: never give up, no matter how long it takes or how difficult it is. It is important to keep faith in yourself and your ideas!
And something else very important, the team has held together, all the time!
Therefore, once again and forever many thanks to this wonderful team!

Have fun exploring our worlds!

Currently known bugs, which we hope to fix as soon as possible:
none, Fruti is still working on one or two more things, you know, safety first... ;)
Tyldalan is open to explore!

Here is some more information about our ages.
They are:

- Koh-Dalan Ahno, the start age (winter)
From the Relto you will always be linked to this age. The doors are always closed.

- Koh-Dalan Ahcha, the second age.
Accessible through the linking book in Koh-Dalan Ahno after you have solved Koh-Dalan Ahno.

- Tyldalan, the third age.
Accessible after you have solved Koh-Dalan Ahcha.

We have tried to make the puzzles not too easy but not too difficult either.
That is, once you have solved them, it is not difficult to solve them again in a short time. All it takes is a little patience and observation.
And one more important thing.
We have tried to make the ages multiplayer capable, but I would give the advice, only one player should press the pictures in the Zodiac Hall so when you have solved the puzzle, you see the right code. Also you must be in third person view so that you can see the animation and the code.
And it is also "safer" not click the buttons too fast. Means: Click - take a breath - click - take a breath and so on, ;)

Each of the three ages has its secrets to explore.

The background to these ages:
After the D'ni had to leave their burning city in flight, they came to Koh-Dalan Ahno. The images of the burning city can still be seen in the linking room.
They also wanted to protect themselves, so they installed protections so that one could not easily get to Koh-Dalan Ahcha.
Tyldalan was a last place of retreat.

Please remember, when Kohdalan Ahchah is solved but you don't see the third beam that goes to the raft, go there and look if the button on the wooden post on the walkway is green. If this is the case press it and it will turn red. Then you have to wait about 70 seconds and the raft will come.

Now that all our ages are online I would like to thank everyone who made this possible!
Especially Diafero for keeping the server online and Korovev for his tours.
It is a great pleasure for me to see that URU is still alive after all these years!

Now I wish you happy exploring and stay safe!


Thanks for reading and visiting our ages.

Greetings

Shorah Itep my friend

I am so proud of you all that you finally made it.
Above all, it is thanks to Fruti and you that after so many years the project has come to an end.
Thank you for mentioning me, although I didn't really much contribute because working with 3 Ds Max is not really part of my life. The inventory I have had built for the middle and the left Cave still looks a bit rough. Blender is my favorite.

Wodan and Corvus have real talent in 3D modeling and it's a shame that they don't build anymore. Wodan has already proven his great talent with Ashream and Oolbahnneea.
With Hayal, Corvus also showed what potential she has.

I still know Falke from the beginning of my Blender days, he helped me to install the program when I had no knowledge of world building, but really wanted to build an Age myself.
Thanks again to Fruti for always willing to help me whenever I had a problem with Alcscripts, even if he actually hated it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

And now to you dear Itep, I would be very happy if we could explore the worlds together. I managed the first puzzle on my own, but already with the mechanics puzzle I start pondering and need someone with expertise. :)

Greetings to you all
Dulcamara :)

Can anyone help me. I got the most recent update for this age and Chamassa and now I can log into the game and get into Relto but cannot link to any other age. ANY book /age that I try to link through or to I get a stack error, including to the nexus. I have never had a problem before with updates and have played on the Deep Island Shard for years.

Hi zftm

I am sorry to hear about your problem, but I don't think it has something to do with Koh-Dalan. There is no connection between the two ages. I can travel to both ages and there is no problem.
Hopefully your problem can be solved.

Greetings Itep

Hi!

I was exploring the first age the other night with SereneTiki and we found a nice relto page! We went back to our own Relto and saw a special delivery through the mail... :lol: Unfortunately, the said delivery disappears once we go out and back again of our Relto. I've checked the relto page and it shows as still being active but the delivery itself is gone. We get quite hungry down there in the Cavern and I found it neat to have something to eat. Is there anyway you can look at the issue and see if it is not a code related problem?

Thanks for your ages, although we are still in the first one. I found 2 symbols (1 in sauna, 1 in the pueblo village). There is a lot of levers and buttons but for now it seems we are missing symbols to activate the gate to the next age.


Like the old saying goes: "A banana a day keeps the Bahros at bay" ;)

Hi Théodore

Thanks for reporting! We have to talk to the Mailman because it seems, he comes only every second day to the relto... :shock: :lol:

I am happy you like our ages! :)

Show Spoiler


So I wish you good luck and a lot of fun.
