Do you remember OHB? Do you remember his Uru Localization Project (ULP)?
Well, quite a while ago, OHB announced that the ULP website was going to be improved with lots of new features, new graphics and more. We have waited for everything to be ready, and finally, the new ULP version is out and ready to be used!
It's called GULP, and it has new "social" functions for following the development of the projects translations and for tracking your contributions. The green and white style, which was made by Tanshin, is also very clean and welcoming.
For bugs and suggestions, you can post in the Localization Project section in the Guild of Writers Forum.
As many of you may know, the creator and maintainer of Drizzle and the original UAM database of Ages, Dustin (aka ddb174), has retired from the community some months ago, and since then Drizzle, the Uru Age Manager and the UAM Shard were left without a maintainer.
Drizzle is not being developed anymore, but it still works. You can still download Ages with UAM but new Ages are not going to be added to its list. And the UAM Shard just works, but nothing more.
This has started to become a problem just lately, when new ages have been finished by some Age Writers and they had no way to deliver them to the non-technically-expert Uru Community, because they couldn't be added to the list of UAM.
This is why today diafero announced a new UAM Database, the Deep Island UAM Database.
How does this work? Well it's easy, it work the same way the original UAM database worked: you just have to open your Drizzle, go the the UAM tab, click on the Change Server button and insert the address of the new database:
Confirm the change and push the Get Latest List button to update your list of Ages. And there you go! Everything is ready for downloading the new ages.
The Open Source Uru community has finished the work on a new update for MOULa!
OpenUru.org announced that they have locked the update (meaning, no more changes can be done) and Cyan Worlds has been notified that it's ready. Now everything is up to Cyan: to decide which parts to include in MOULa, to test it with their internal workflow and finally to publish it.
Right now Cyan's schedule and times are still unknown.
Here is the list of bugfixes, changes and new features as it was published on OpenUru.org:Lire la suite
Join Ghaelen D'Lareh and the Guild of Healers in a retrospective journey through the closing, waiting, and expectations of the re-opening of the Cavern from 2010!
Through music and voice, relive this time with those explorers who experienced it. If you were there, add your thoughts and memories of the Cavern re-opening, and Ghaelen will include them in the Opening Ceremony program. The opening ceremony kicks off a week-long celebration that includes music, games and other programs. To listen via Shoutcast, please visit: http://healersradio.hopto.org
The Theme of the Opening Ceremony is A Fall through the Chasm: This will involve the loss, the waiting, the hope of a renewed cavern. It will include dedications, tributes, and a silent vigil to commemorate the loss of our home, family, and friends. In essence, we fell through the chasm, grieved, then hoped to come through the other side to a renewed place.
The Theme of the Closing Ceremony is Welcome Home!: As in previous years, we welcome those we have recently lost and those new explorers who have joined us since February of 2011. This will be a joyful ceremony as we celebrate the continuance of our home for another year and the fun of creating new memories to share next February. Following the fun-filled events of the week as it does, you can expect several rounds of /shout and /cheer.
The music, dedications, a tribute, and a vigil will take us through the days during which we lost our beloved Cavern Home. We will also remember past and recent community members who have left us and pause for a silent vigil should some explorers wish to individually visit the memorial in the Kahlo Pub. Finally, we remember the hope that someday we could go home again. That hope includes the continuance of our home well into the "current" future years.Lire la suite
Come one come all to the greatest, and only, quiz show in the cavern, Significa, organized by the Guild of New Greeters!
Wear your Guild of Greeters shirt from Kirel to show your support and head on over to the Guild of Greeters Pub (found in the City Locations tab of the Nexus) for a night of questions that will test your meddle against your fellow explorers!
Questions will range from visual picture questions, history questions, family tree questions and much much more!
This is the list of what updates were presented by JWPlatt on the OpenUru.org Forums:
Added Donate button to the login screen
Added fixes from Christian Walther for the Python SDL tuples
Added plLocalizationEditor source and project
The Localization Editor has been added to the sources. This was unintentionally omitted from the original source distribution. Thanks Chogon!
Minkata Sparklie fix from D'Lanor. This is in concert with Cyan's internal fix to Minkata.
As you can see there are some interesting things: first of all the long awaited fix of Minkata's Sparkly made by D'Lanor and Cyan Worlds. Then we can see a change in the Client itself for adding a Donate button to the login screen of MOULa (remember MOULa survives only with donations!), then a fix made by Christian Walther to the Python code and the Localization Editor, which apparently has something do to with the possibility of translating CWE content in other languages.
We would like to remind all of you that this is "only" a commit on the repositories where the code is kept, the MOULa program (client) has not yet been updated so you won't see these changes in MOULa yet. We will publish more news when this will happen, probably after the code has been tested.
Shorah fellow explorers and all cavern-dwellers!
I am excited to announce a special week to celebrate our return to the cavern! We are now entering our third year of MOULa!!! In honor of this achievement, various groups have banded together to “lay the groundwork” to create a series of small events into a full-blown festival. Below, one will find a Master Schedule which will be kept updated. Any interested parties are asked to submit additional events via the MOULa forums within a special thread created by Tai'lahr.
"MEMORIES OF THE CAVERN"
Master Schedule of Events:
[Feb. 4th-11th; All times listed are KI-time, unless otherwise stated.]Lire la suite
