New gfx, Facebook (external logins), Sov exploit & more

  • Research Graphics
    We now have some amazing new graphics courtesy of new Illy staff member Cerberus for Research technologies.  These are currently visible on the Discoveries page popups only, but will be rolled out onto the entirety of the Research Tree over the coming weeks and months. 

  • Facebook Players
    Facebook players can now set a password on the Account and Preferences page to play Illyriad without going via Facebook.

  • Sovereignty Claims
    It has come to our attention that some players have discovered that levelling up Sov V on a square, then building a Sov Structure V, and then letting the underlying Sovereignty drop down to Sov I still gives the player the Sov V building bonus but for only a Sov I underlying upkeep.  This has been deemed an exploit, and will be shortly fixed.  To maintain a particular level of Sovereign Structure you need to maintain the same (or greater) level of underlying Sovereign claim.  All Sovereign Building Structures of a higher level than the underlying Sov Claim on the square can support will be levelled down to their maximum supported level within the coming few days.

  • Resource Bar Issues
    Some international date formats were causing the resource bar to be partially hidden - this has now been fixed.

  • Meddlesome IE9 security
    Some "enhanced" security features in IE9 were preventing chat and notifications from working. We have altered how these work at our end, so this should no longer cause an issue.

  • Undock chat
    Undocking chat windows whilst you were scrolled far down a page was causing the chat window to disappear in many browser environments.  This has now been resolved.

  • Alliance Status
    Alliance member status is now spelt out in a time bracket to be less confusing.  So instead of "Last 1 hr" it now says "Last 30-60 mins"

  • Brewery Description
    An error in the brewery description which stated 4% per level instead of the reality of 4.5% per level has been fixed.

  • Resource Harvesters "Stuck"
    A code review and some try/catch handling has been put in place, so there should be many fewer (or indeed, no new) incidents of Caravans not returning when they should in the future.
Please join me in both thanking and welcoming Cerberus to the team!

Best wishes,

SC

Hi folks!

Glad to be here and part of the Illyriad team.  This is a phenomenal game and I'm really looking forward to bringing everyone a veritable smorgasbord of graphics. 

More to come soon!

Hmm...Two posts and yet only one can be found. I wonder where this other illusive post is...Anyway, Welcome! =D I hope you actually post semi-often instead of being like most of the GMs, which no one really knows about.

Mini inconvenience since this update... I always open alliance chat first and move it to where I want it... then open global chat.  Each time I open global it moves alliance chat behind it !!! so I gotta move global window to see alliance window. Was fine up to and including yesterday morning. Minor so whenever :D
