Enjoy Monkey Empire devblog and keep in touch with the ape game development
Game Design Created and Updated tickets Finished the basic Quest System Design — added more item and MKC rewards for each basic quest type Added the Quest popup to main HUD (whenever a Quest is progressed or completed, a popup appears) Added Quest icon with counter in the main HUD Added Battle Cost proposal (Battles vs. another player will cost 1 energy) to balance out the PvP, prevent excessive consecutive attacks, give more time for defense, boosts retention, and using MKC to restore energy — boosts monetization
Backend This week: - Igor finished the map tile system. - Igor worked on AI villages generation and system. - Jordan worked on reworking our Docker containers and build time, a first improvement was done, gaining precious minutes (sometimes more) on our build time + avoiding crashes. - Jordan worked on the storage vault facility system, we’re finishing the review right now. - Jordan started preparing the code to work on facility build time and queuing. - Ivan worked on truce periods for villages. - Flo added various optimizations like clusterization on the main api in production and stripping some unnecessary big payloads. - Flo is working on the Limited Time Features + archi changes.
Infra - New server special for events ! We want to impress our partners with a perfectly smooth user experience. - Few enhancements regarding network capabilities of the servers, a good ape needs to communicate, working on EKS container technology in order to always provide a better experience for our apes.
