Producer's Letter from Terry "Fairan" Michaels

Greetings Landmarkians!

I wanted to take a few minutes (and words!) to recap what’s happened over the past few weeks and give everyone an update on what to expect moving forward!

So, what’s been going on with team? The month of May was pretty much all about the big character and claim wipe, and then fixing issues that were introduced or discovered immediately afterward. Things have mostly settled down and the team is hot on the heels of the remaining high priority bugs. As soon as we get them fixed, we’ll get them out as soon as we can.

As the team has wrapped up the various pieces related to the wipe and the bugs associated with it, we have been shifting our focus and resources over to work on the highest priority tasks and systems that will be used in EverQuest Next. While we do this, we’re working in areas with high amounts of creative risk. This means that while we know what we want to do, we know it will take an unknown amount of iteration, tweaking and sometimes drastic direction changes to get these in game and working the way they need to. Because of this, we simply cannot commit to any dates, because until we get much closer, even our best estimates are educated (but still fairly wild) guesses.

This also does mean that any features that are Landmark-only are lower in priority and will have to wait until we have time to come back to them. So, as we shift our focus and development to EQN, it just doesn’t make sense to continue with the Blueprint, since the goal of that has always been to provide short term, concrete plans of what you could expect and when, and that isn’t something we can reliably estimate at this point. When we have a better idea of timing on the various pieces, we will make sure to let everyone know.

This does *not* mean that the team isn’t hard at work on things that will eventually make it into your hands. We *absolutely* are! Essentially, as we develop tasks and systems that are in a state fit for Landmark, we will get them into the game with an update. We still want and need your feedback on what we’re making in order to make sure both Landmark and EverQuest Next are as amazing as we all want them to be. You can fully expect updates and hotfixes to Landmark as we continue with this development process; they are simply going to be on a less regular schedule than you guys have been accustomed to over the past year or so.

Landmark and the player community are very important to us and will continue to be essential in the development of EverQuest Next, exactly as we’ve promised from the very beginning. In fact, here’s a quick peek at how we’re using some of the amazing creations you all have made as we build EverQuest Next.



This is only the first small glimpse of what’s to come and I look forward to seeing how everything comes together as EverQuest Next continues to take shape over the rest of the year and beyond. Also, before anyone asks, I want to clarify that although we are shifting our primary focus to EverQuest Next, this does not mean the game will be coming out this year.

We WILL be continuing with the Workshops, so keep an eye out for those! And when we have a bigger update, we’ll also schedule a Landmark Live to get together and chat like we have in the past! More fun times are definitely ahead! :)

Whenever we have information to share, we’ll continue to keep everyone up to date on the forums, twitter, reddit, Facebook and any of the other usual means of communication. Make sure to check in regularly to find out what’s going on with the games and with the entire team (both the employees AND the community)!

The Servers Are Up! (Friday, May 8)

Fellow Landmarkians!

The game update and wipe are complete, and the servers have unlocked. Venture forth and explore the many changes that came with this update. Make sure you review the following posts from Dev on the official forums:


The Development Team has also provided a current "Known Issues" list:

Known issues
aka: bugs you may notice we weren't able to fix in time for this update (obviously not a complete list, but some of the more obvious ones)
  • Landmarks of Landmark have not yet been placed, but you'll notice that there is space reserved for them beside each spire. They'll appear as time permits!
  • Particles that appear when mining or harvesting are blue, instead of the correct color
  • Using Ctrl-# to switch between hotbars is not yet working
  • The sky can change to a blueish color when you're under a layer of voxels
  • Lighting can change abruptly when you transition between biomes
  • Traveling to the spire using the Stone of Recall may send you to a 'minor' surface hub instead of the main surface spire
  • Props that are free (such as glass panes) appear greyed out in the prop palette
  • Occasionally you may need to click twice on a tree to start autoharvesting, rather than just once.
  • Occasionally you may see trees, plants, or rocks floating over a cavern entrance.

    If you find an issue not on this list, please check if it exists in the DBG Issue Tracker at https://dgcissuetracker.com - this is a third party fansite - and if not, please enter the details of how to reproduce it! Your help is always appreciated! :)

Early Access Review
I bought this game, logged in, and it said I was banned.

Made no sense because I had never played the game before, and it was on a brand new account.

Contacted the support and they told me that the ban would stay. I asked what I did wrong and they just said "broke the terms of service". I explained that I had never played the game before, but they didn't listen. I asked if I could get a refund for the game, and they said no. I don't see how I could have gotten banned when I never even started the game up, but whatever.

Naturally, I was annoyed. I contacted Steam, and they refunded me the game.

Thank you, Steam. Thank you for having better customer service than Landmark.

Early Access Review
A prime example of Early Access gone wrong. Updates are infrequent and minimal, communication from the developer has dried up after the company was purchased, and the outlook for this ever turning into a "game" like was promised is exceedingly grim. They have outright announced that they are shifting development away from Landmark toward EverQuest Next even though Landmark is not the product they said they would produce.

This is money I regret spending.

Early Access Review
You would think that this would be like Minecraft, but with a lot more building options for detailed textures and shapes. In a way, it really has that potential, but there are reasons why this won't happen. First, the claims. I like the idea of claims so that no one can come and ruin your projects, but you also can't build outside of your claim. Want to reach that gemstone at the top of the cave? Well too bad, because you can't build any sort of ledge to reach it. Want to make a stone path all the way to the water? OK, but use another claim first! There's a beautiful world to explore, but no point in doing so since you can't do anything with it.

Early Access Review
Bought a Explorer's pack i dont know.. a year ago and had quite a good time in this game. The game at the time was great! At this time a cant really say because i cant even log in and play. All i get is an error that tells me to buy something i already have (Founders pack).


* No access to a game (EA, BETA) i already payed for.
* No answer from Support in 14 days.

I say, waste your money on something else!
