Wikinger Weekly Wrap Up #19

Hello Wikingers,

this week has been a week of

tiny bits and pieces!

Again we achieved some records, more or less a record month – well, actually we did not do it, YOU, the great Wikinger community, did it.

Website Record

Wikinger Weekly Wrap Up #17

Wikinger Weekly Wrap Up #17

Hello Wikingers!

Thanks to Lorarius, I was able to have a weeks break from doing the weekly wrap up, but this week I am back!

First Up

Patch Progress

We rolled out 3.1.6C yesterday, which seems odd as we have been gearing up to 3.1.7 – Eisener Wille, however rather than bundle all this work into one huge patch that takes over a month to develop we are rolling out the groundwork for the next doctrine in a series of smaller rapid patches.  We’ve made some huge improvement to the mod in this latest patch, we have one more patch to get out the door and then we all the major ground work is completed and rolled out for the next doctrine patch.  Which also means we can just do the doctrine and not have anything else bundled with it.

Wikinger Weekly Wrap Up #7

Another week has flown by! Here we are for another weekly wrap up.

Patch 3.1.5B Update

Status: Released!

That’s right, after a lot longer than we intended (see wrap up #6) we released the 3.1.5B patch on the 16th (GMT+12).  We had to do a lot of work twice, but that’s just the price to pay for having a standard of a bug free release, every time.

We look forward to hearing what you have to say about the improvements we’ve made to Wikinger in this patch, it should have removed a lot of frustrations that have been voiced over the previous weeks and months.

3.1.5B in Detail
