Hello NI community!

It has been a while since we have had to make one of these messages (over a year, actually) but it is time to once again ask for more support for the cost of our servers.  In a change from previous requests, we are listing the monthly costs for each region with an approximate conversion to the local currency.

Europe   50 EUR   ~36 GBP   One dedicated server   Last month's donations: ~12 EUR   Current donations: 300 EUR
North America   53 EUR   ~56 USD   One dedicated server   Last month's donations: ~8 EUR   Current donations: 20 EUR
Australia   38 EUR   ~52 AUD   Two game servers   Last month's donations: ~5 EUR   Current donations: 0 EUR

The Australian servers in particular are quite expensive.  Unlike the EU and NA servers, we have to pay for each individual game server.  (This is why there are currently only two.)  Unfortunately, donations for the AU servers only cover a fraction of the cost (about 5 EUR per month).  If we do not see an increase from that area (or an overall surplus), we might be forced to drop one or both AU servers.

The other two regions are also in need of more donations.  We are currently receiving about 20 EUR per month for them combined.  Because they are dedicated servers, it does not cost us more to run more game servers on them - the only limitation is the hardware of the server.  This also means we cannot reduce costs by dropping game servers in those regions.

In brighter news, we have some great ideas in the pipeline for the next patch and are looking forward to how they will affect game progression from lower to upper levels.  I don’t want to say anything specific quite yet but these changes will make the game more inviting for new members and introduce some fun ideas for existing members too!

In closing, NI has survived a number of years now with the support of our great community.  It has provided countless hours of enjoyment and with your help, will continue to do so.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
The NordInvasion Team

PS: The donation page can be found by clicking the "Help NI" link on our homepage (or by clicking here).

Edit: Added running total of donations as of April 20th

For a bit of early April fun, we have a few servers distributing random gear again!

Just join an NI_April_ server with a few or all of your equipment slots empty and you will get random weapons, armor, or support items.  Slots that you choose to equip yourself will get whatever you equip.  Don't worry about getting arrows but no bow - items like that are paired together.

NI_April_EU1 and NA1 are normal mode, NI_April_EU2 and NA2 are hard mode, and NI_April_DM_EU and NA are deathmatch.

The loadouts can get quite silly so have fun!

Hello all,

We have done a bit of reworking regarding the NordInvasion team structure.


New Groups

As you might have noticed on the forum index, our worker groups have been combined into Contributor and Major Contributor and we have a new Senior Developer group.

Contributors are those who have done a notable amount of modeling, texturing, or scening work specifically for NordInvasion.
Major Contributors are those who have done a considerable amount of work.
Anyone who has contributed to the mod, regardless of being a group member, is appreciated and eligible for mention on our about page.

Developers are those who are an integral part of the development process and directly modify the mod.
Senior Developers are long-standing developers who also are administrators.


New Developers

We would also like to take this opportunity to officially welcome two new developers to the team: YuriTheRed and Thatsmybanana.

Yuri is joining our Senior Developer, K4mi, to work on the game code. The exact details of what they are working on will of course be revealed in time.

Thatsmybanana is handling models and textures. Anyone wishing to contribute models or textures to the game should speak with him and indeed, we welcome you all to do so.

- Kip & the NordInvasion team.

Hello!

Item colors might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about website design but they are something you see every time you check your inventory.

It has been a long while since we last adjusted them but that changes now.

We have added more categories to make it easier to see what you have at a glance and have swapped a few of the colors to group them better.

For details about which category has which color, please refer to our wiki: Equipment: Item Quality

If you see an item that does not fit the group properly, let us know!

- Kip and the developer team
