    It has been quite some time since I last made an announcement regarding the development of the Dragon’s Prophet server, but I finally have some solid information to share regarding progress, even if it is a bit away from a full update.

    Over the last year we have been at work researching, reversing and rebuilding the data tool for Dragon’s Prophet, which is required to properly modify or add new content to the game. This has been a long arduous process because the data structures of each data set are not consistent, meaning that each data set must be re-written and optimized for our new tool. This is made more difficult with the fact that there are 42 data sets, and each data set can range from ~100 to ~600+ different components, with the largest being NPC/Dragons (Dragons is an extension of NPC).

    The tool itself is a work in progress and each set of data requires us to build the UI and test the exported data repeatedly until we are sure that the data will not cause issues. We have thus far completed Zones, the majority of Dragons (and as such NPC, though there is still more to do) and potentially are nearly complete with Quests (some minor issues). We will then be moving on to Armor, Weapons, Items and each of the data sets is complete and tested.

    Currently there isn’t much that can be shown as it is being done client side with a special test client, but as we get further along, I will post another update and preview a few of the things we’re working on.

    I mean, if we had gotten Dragons done to the point that they were at now a few days earlier... I was planning on turning every Dragon into Candy King for April Fools. Other options was everything becoming a toilet.

    I've asked @Aiden and @Motoko to do some new recolors to test around with a bit more (I can add new dragons currently, but I've yet to actually test adding new textures for the dragons).

    if you are implementing a new level of capacity and crafting, please put them both at the same level so we can work with transfers.

    That's something that will be coming later on as we will need to actually prepare it with new content which is still a bit off.

    Currently we're mostly focusing on things that will allow us to make changes to existing content, fix bugs (102), introduce new dragons and new cosmetics.
