    As mentioned on the Dev thread, I am Estimating December /Janurary for Live Launch, It might be much earlier or it might be much later all depends on progress speed.

    In a loose sense,

    Yea, I tried it, I can use it and don't get me wrong its very good, but my experience is with WinForms and I'm not ready to properly learn the MVVM structure and the fine details.

    What I mean is, I do not want people being able to see more of the map /area than they already do, it makes the game too easy being able to see +15 co ords.

    Re: Zircon Server Development

    Full Screen Windowed mode has been removed,

    I'v added a range of Wide Screen resolutions to compensate this, I will be restricting the visual range of mobs later as to prevent a significant advantage.

    Seeing more of the map then lets you navigate through caves easier, as you can see what mobs are coming. It will also allow you to see other players coming to you sooner allowing you to escape/gank easier. Would be quite a big advantage for those with larger resolutions over people with smaller ones.

    He could support the larger resolution, but then not draw any mobs/players outside of the standard view range (like his ghost cave on marble), but that would negate the point of allowing larger resolutions, and probably look quite daft without a fog element to it.
    That way I could use my TV for mir.
    3840x2160 resolution lol

    That's what I'm getting at though. He is constraining himself to the limits of old engines from the start rather than possibly using this as a chance to change it in these early stages. I'm sure sticking with a higher single resolution would make it easier to design other things as well.

    Every game these days has spell ranges so I see no issue in seeing mobs that you cannot attack on your screen. In caves you wouldn't be able to see anything extra without better torches anyway.

    At the end of the day this might not suit Jamie's idea of what mir should be like though which we have to respect, its his engine and its how he wants it. Always worth throwing some ideas out there though for him to think about in this early stage.
