DiamondFire Sales Update

  • 633
  • 6
Hey y’all! Today I’m announcing a SUMMER KICKOFF SALE and some changes to how we do sales on DiamondFire.

For the last several years, we’ve offered a whopping 75% off ranks on Black Friday. This has an unfortunate effect on the rest of the year. It feels wasteful to just buy a rank when you want it, because it’ll be so much (4x!) cheaper if you wait for Black Friday. That means up to 12 months of waiting where you can’t enjoy the rank.

We don’t want to pressure players into waiting several months or even a whole year to buy a rank. As such, we’re going to be balancing out our sale schedule for the rest of 2024. This year’s Black Friday sale will include 35% off ranks. Plots and boosters will continue be 50% off, like last year. We will also be hosting an equivalent sale to kick off the summer, and it starts right now! Ranks will be 35% off, and plots and boosters will be 50% off until May 28, 2024 12:00 AM (PDT). You won’t find a bigger sale than this...

Introducing the VIP Pass!

I am incredibly excited to announce the new DiamondFire VIP Pass!

It gives you access to exclusive premium content and perks in some of DF's top games. Our launch plots include Site-03, Sputt Time, +1 Clicker, God Abuse, Orig 4, Be Crushed By a Speeding Wall, Trash Gang, Subterranean, and Pickaxe. We have even more plots on the way!

A bit about how it works: DiamondFire pays plot creators to add new content for the VIP pass. As I'm sure you've guessed, these payments come from sales of the pass!

As an additional way to support your favorite plots, VIP pass holders also get Plot Boosts. They're kind of like plot ads, but they can be used on any non-whitelisted plot, even if you're not the owner!

Our mission with the VIP Pass is to enable plot monetization in a way that does right by players and creators. All perks must be EULA-compliant, and by commissioning content, the pass will be purely additive, so non-VIPs will still have a high-quality...

This is a small patch adding mostly convenience features and some missing actions.

Special shoutouts to the staff team for taking on the challenge of increased player counts and providing an excellent experience for players.

In celebration of the anniversary, there's a 25% off sale in the store right now. Additionally, I'll be doing some giveaways during this Saturday's livestream! It'll start at about 11:30am PST and run for about an hour and a half. https://twitch.tv/jeremaster104

Patch 5.4 (plus a dev blog)

Patch 5.4

I'm happy to announce that Patch 5.4 has been released!

This update comes with a great new code feature. the dictionary data structure. Dictionaries hold key-value pairs, similar to tables. You can use them to store information and retrieve them with keys. With efficient lookup times and a variety of supported code actions, dictionaries should become a valuable tool in everyone's coding toolkit.

This update also introduces some new cosmetics for fun times at spawn, as well as a variety of smaller changes and fixes throughout the server. Notably, the rank requirement for /plot whitelist has been dropped; whitelists are now available to all.

Be sure to check out /patch in-game for the full list of changes.

Some of you may be wondering why this update isn't coming with full 1.17 support. While we want to support the new blocks and other features as soon as possible, and have completed a...

Creator Points Removal Test (Patch 5.3.5)

  • 8,895
  • 28
Hello all!

Something we've been thinking about a lot is: is the creator points system good for DF? Way back when I added CP I was inspired by competitive online games and figured such a framework could be adapted to DF. As time has gone on though, it seems increasingly out of place in a creative and learning-focused environment. When you play a competitive online game, you expect competitive systems that compare you against other players. On a creative platform, you don’t expect that, and the existence of such a system honestly feels kind of forced.

I posed this question to many of you in the suggestions server, and the responses were overwhelmingly in favor of trying out the removal of the creator points system. As such, we will be disabling creator points for about 1 month, after which we'll either bring back CP or move on without it. During this time, you will not gain or lose any CP.

In place of creator points, we're looking to provide some more fun stats for you to...

Dev Blog: Where we're at with world plots

  • 6,966
  • 12
Hi all! As many of you know, we began testing world plots on Node Beta yesterday. Through this, we gained a lot of helpful user feedback, as well as important information on the server resource usage patterns of the world plots system.

Background​

World plots have been planned for a long time as a way to make the server capacity more scalable as our playerbase grows. The system would offer better plot isolation and stability, as described in our previous dev blog. Development of world plots officially started in early June, and the dev team (especially @Owen) has spent a great deal of time working on it. We wanted to get a test on Node Beta as soon as possible so we could get feedback and analyze usage under more realistic player counts and usage patterns.

What we found​

While the user feedback was helpful (many of you expressed concerns about build and code separation), another concern for us was the resource usage of the...

Black Friday Sale

The DiamondFire BLACK FRIDAY SALE has begun! This is our biggest sale of the year (by a lot). How big, you ask? Here's the rundown on this year's discounts:

ALL RANKS are 75% OFF. This means you could get Overlord for $25 USD with NO RANK. If you already have a rank, it could be as cheap as $8.75.

ALL PLOTS are 66% OFF. This means a massive plot will cost $5 USD. Five dollars. I'd say you should get one but given how rare this deal is you should probably get ten just to be safe.

ALL BOOSTERS will be 66% OFF. This makes a 3x booster cost $2 USD and a 5-pack of 2x boosters cost about $5.28. For a little over 20 bucks you could 2x boost the server continuously for 60 hours.

The sale will will end at 11:59PM PST on Friday, November 27th. Do not miss out!
