NWN EE Update
« on: May 04, 2018, 06:09:27 AM »
Greetings fellow Prisoners of the Mist!

We wanted to give you a quick update on how the effort to migrate to NWN:EE is progressing (you can read our previous announcement here).

In general, the new NWN version seems to be able to handle most of our systems and content with only a few adjustments required here and there. So far, the greatest challenge has been to get the NWNX server plugin to work, but this should now be resolved. Thus it is likely that we will make the transition to NWN:EE within the coming month, with the only factor of uncertainty being when Beamdog decides to release the next patch (we prefer to not do the final migration before we have the next patch and feel confident that it's stable). Hopefully we'll have an idea on when that will happen very soon.

No matter what though, we hope to have a public test server available in the coming week that you can all go crazy in - and help us discover any remaining issues before we finally go live.

That brings us to the next point - in order both to test new concepts, welcome new players, and give returning players something to get them involved in the server once again, we intend to inaugurate our EE server (after a short period of open testing) with a proper Play-A-New-Character Event! Stay tuned for precise details, but now would be a good time to start thinking of concepts, ideas and plots. We intend to start EE as we mean to go on - with a burst of new storytelling and plots to keep our community thriving for a very long time to come.

Thank you all for reading,

The PotM Development Team
