Changes to Make it Rain for Dynamis

Hello Supernovans!

A quick message regarding our Dynamis coin duplicator, Make it Rain:

We have a plan to simplify Make it Rain in the early portion of every Dynamis zone in a future update. In the meantime, to make Dreamland Dynamis more accessible and enticing, we’re going to allow GMs to enable MIR at the start of those runs similar to how City and Northland Dynamis currently work.

As we plan to update the system for the future, we are working on a way to no longer require GM intervention, as well as encourage alternating zones with potentially even more rewards. There will always be a “most optimized” zone, but we are looking at ways to prevent it from getting repetitive and boring.

If you have any questions about this, please hit up any of the GM staff ingame or in the #ffxisupport channel on Discord!

Announcement: November 2020 Update

A couple words from Novah about today’s server update:

Quick message to everyone, please do NOT update your client today, tomorrow, or anytime soon until you are told to do so. There are some changes to the new client that the private server community has not fixed yet, which causes client crashes, more than the normal NPC-named-oddly differences. So don’t update and you’ll be fine!

If you have questions, please bring it up on the #ffxisupport channel on the Supernova Discord.

Happy adventuring!

October 2020 Spooky Update

Hello Supernovans!

This is the Season of the Witch, and to celebrate, we are bringing you an extra special treat. The Vana’diel Harvest Festival comes to Supernova for the first time ever!

*A CLIENT UPDATE IS REQUIRED FOR THIS UPDATE*.

The Updated Client Version is 30201006_1. You can check your client version ingame by typing “/ver” or by checking in the POL Viewer under “Check Files\Final Fantasy XI”.

The Harvest Festival works very similar to the 2005 Retail variation, complete with trading sweets to NPCs in exchange for spooky costumes, items, and a whole lot of fun!

PLEASE NOTE

Talking with the “Trick” NPCs in any zone will stop their movements. Please do not speak with the following NPCs – you only need to trade items to them:

Enjoy the Harvest Festival, it will be active for a while, get out there and grab your Treat Staves and Pitchforks, and have a wonderful harvest season!

Urgent Notification – Aht Urhgan Missions past AU15 currently Off-Limits

A recent instability surrounding Aht Urhgan Missions has been discovered, and as such all Aht Urhgan Missions beyond AU15 “The Black Coffin” *including cutscenes* are currently off-limits as declared by the GM team.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and will let you know when these missions are safe to do again.

Please watch this space, our Discord channels, or ingame linkshell status message and linkshell chat for updated information as it comes.

Thank you!
