  5. Hi all, As you are reading this you are most likely wondering about "what's going on": with myself, Flamefrost and other things. Considering my increasingly rare appearances online it is only fair if some of you started thinking that Flamefrost is dead. So I've decided that it is equally fair that I provide you with an honest update and not keep anyone in the dark. Years 2018 and 2019 were an absolutely wild roller coaster ride for me and the Epic Dragon: we've seen both good times and bad, had a bunch of really happy moments and some outright depressing ones. Some of you know that we've attempted to rebuild "Domination: Earth" (our other mobile game) using the Unity engine and a team of 3rd party developers, which ultimately ended in a disaster and a huge financial loss, and we've had to shut down Flamefrost as we couldn't afford running it anymore. We've also lost the team that was supposed to rebuild Flamefrost, so everything returned back to my desk and the development stalled. However, things are slowly starting to get back to normal and I would like to officially state that Flamefrost is not dead. It will most likely never be the same and I do not know when, but it will be back. I have made a decision to revamp its graphics engine, make it a lot more lightweight and get rid of the aspects that demand the ludicrously expensive hardware for the servers. I have also re-purposed the Unity engine that we acquired for "Domination: Earth" and will use it as a new server-side rendering mechanism for our characters. This means some drastic changes to the game's content, character appearance will now be based around pre-configured models that do not change (equipping new items will no longer affect the visible 3D model) and it also means that every single one of our existing 3D characters will have to go: unfortunately, our old models are completely incompatible with Unity. Yep, this means that every single creature of the world will be remade. The good news is that our new characters will most likely be a bit prettier and "more HD" overall: as I do not have a 3D artist in my team anymore I have invested into some characters created by a 3rd party studio, so at this moment in time we already have a complete set of beautiful creatures that will repopulate the new world of Naerath. This also means that all playable races will change: existing veterans of Flamefrost will have to face a choice of either to be converted to one of the new races (without losing the accumulated progress) or start from scratch in a new(ish) world. Despite all these exciting developments there is still an enormous amount of work to do (it will take me weeks just to replace all of the existing combat NPCs of the world and that's the easiest part of development), so I honestly cannot foresee how long this will take, whether it's going to be months or even years. Because of that I just cannot ask you to stick around the forum any longer to wait for more news and I will email you personally instead once something changes (e.g. a release date becomes known). Our Facebook page will also be updated. So this is it! Please post if you have any questions (as I am still checking the forum ) and as always, I am really grateful for you being part of this community!
  6. Missing Flamefrost

    Me too and three!!!!
  7. Missing Flamefrost

    I knew I was missing FFL this morning when ... I was daydreaming about ways to fight in the last place I ever enjoyed fighting in, Goblin Tunnels! Honestly, how Dan thought it was fun to stick an elite group of Spellcasters as the welcome committee in an area is hard enough to understand, but the fact that I want to go back for more? It's how I know I'm really jonesing for a fight with the dragon.
  8. Flamefrost Rebuild

    Just got some free time in life and thought i'd get back in here...well I hope to see something come of the rebuild.
  9. Community Maintenance / Downtime

    How did the move of the forums go? As well as could be hoped?
  10. Hey all, A small heads up: in the next few days our community (this forum) may become unavailable as I will be migrating all the software to a new server: we may have found a much more cost-effective way to host this and all the other websites (including "Domination: Earth"), so we are going to give it a go. Moving every single domain, database and setting to a brand new provider is going to be a lot of work, so it is hard to estimate how long this would take, but I'll do my best to reduce downtime to the minimum. If at some point you cannot access the website for more than a few hours please send me a message on our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/flamefrostlegacy ).
  11. Merry Christmas 2018!

    we demand xmas freebies!!!
  12. Merry Christmas 2018!

    Merry Christmas from Naerath!! And have no Fyr, I think this next year will be a good one.
  13. Merry Christmas 2018!

    Merry Christmas, Dan and all you Flamefrosters!
  14. Merry Christmas, folks! It's unbelievable how fast the time flies, feels like only yesterday we've had an in-game Christmas event in Flamefrost... 2018 has been full of crazy surprises and it is sad that there won't be an in-game event this Christmas, but here's to getting back on track in 2019! * raises a stein * Thank you everyone for being part of our community and I really hope to see you next year!
  15. Proof Positive!!!

    yah, i'm in the country above legit asian.
  16. Robyn's Entry - Sir Vere De Pression

    i was actually worried the name wouldn't fit in my story
  17. Robyn's Entry - Sir Vere De Pression

    Yep, just how Robyn did - the template is here: We've got a separate folder open on the forum, Robyn and I have both been meaning to start a story there. Keep an eye out, it's coming ! @Robyn Banks I don't know how I missed this, but I just got the name of your character. I'm laughing so hard....
  18. Proof Positive!!!

    I think Sir Robyn is a little north of Aussie land.
  19. Proof Positive!!!

    Yup, to Perth! All details in this thread That is awesome; didn't realize we have Australians in Flamefrost! Are you from the west coast too by any chance?
  20. Proof Positive!!!

    Mr.D moved to Aussie? we're neighbor then
  21. Proof Positive!!!

    Affirmative! Yeah, still learning the "Australian language" with all the thongs on people's feet and barbies in the garden... but it is very much English indeed!
  22. Lol! Fair enough! As ridiculous as it sounds, probably weather! I just realized that as a solar-powered person (I am practically a lizard) I'm getting extremely depressed in Norwich at times, where it's grey, rainy and miserable most of the year: Summer is super-short (and it's usually a Wednesday), there's never any snow for Christmas and I keep having to explain to my son why we can't (and I don't want to) go outside for a walk. So yeah, maybe it's my manifestation of the midlife crisis, but I've decided that if we aren't getting snow for Christmas I want to change my life and at least be closer to a nice beach. I actually feel a lot more productive too now having seen the bright blue sky for more than 7 days in a row. Yep! I tried launching a browser-based version, but the majority of desktop devices have no GPS chips so the game gets pretty pointless and boring (as your "current location" never changes ).
  23. Proof Positive!!!

    We now have 'proof positive' that the British Empire is still alive and well! With Dragon Dan and family moved to Australia, and without any fuss, it is proof the land down under and mother England are still the same country :). I mean to say, with the exception of the language differences, England = Australia....which is alright by me.
  24. Warrior Unicorns

    I have missed the whole event...what game?
  25. Warrior Unicorns

    I miss you the most Tin Man (snortgiggles) So you going to make a character and play with us? How have you been by-the-way ? Life treating you good?
  26. Robyn's Entry - Sir Vere De Pression

    Thank you so very much...it is rough because she is so stubborn but I understand being stubborn myself lol. Soooo Hyper, do I make a char using Robyn's format? And where will we be playing ? In forums?
  27. Minor forum change

    I need to make one as well....if life would just stop happening I could do so
