So, a lot’s happened over the last month or so that I haven’t mentioned here, but I figured it’s time we did a proper update on what’s happened lately.
Firstly, and probably most importantly development-wise, I’ve gotten the M&F source code to actually run. And it’s not as hard as I was making it out to be with that multi-part guide. Now that I know how it’s done though, I’ll get around to make a right and proper guide soon. There’s still one last thing we need to have a playable (and thus truly usable) test server, the map data. I hope to have that handled in the next week.
Secondly, I’ve setup hosting for the server that will soon be hosting M&F, as well as it’s project tracker and, ideally (when I find one), translation tool. The server is intended to be as close to the current server’s configuration as possible. If everything goes well, we could be talking about a server move as soon as, well, this month, perhaps.

If you’re seeing this, that means you’ve successfully reached our new home with LemuriaCommunity.org! Or rather, you reached the home of the NEW LemuriaCommunity.org, would be much more accurate.
We’ve not quite set that up yet, but we’ll get there.
So, you may be wondering: “Why?”
Well, that’s an easy thing to answer. Because our old hosting plan couldn’t handle M&F in all it’s glory. We managed to hit the memory limit trying to install it, so we could have a proper test server. 😀
So we’re on a new plan, on a different server, that has the added benefit of fewer restrictions! This means that we’ll be able to do other cool things that we couldn’t before (like host our own chat server) and we’ll be able to do other things even better.
And with all that new space, we’re expanding the MaFFans project to include BattleMaster and Black Forest and [explorers] and whatever other silly thing Tom cooks up next.
We also took a moment to swap to maffans.org as the primary from mightandfealtyfans.org, because it’s easier to type places. Never fear though, we’ll still have it setup so that if you type the secondary, it’ll do a wild-card redirect to the primary. We’ve no intentions on getting rid of that anytime soon either. 🙂
