Pre-alpha Metropole node.[1]

Nodes are a pre-set location, wrapped in a zone of influence, in our world that can form into towns of different sizes. These sizes range from a small camp to a sprawling metropolis. The size of the towns depends on the contribution by players and how far they’ve advanced the Node. Players do not create the footprint of a Node, but within that footprint they do have the ability to own land. Players who are part of the government for a specific Node will have the ability to modify building types and services further, but for the most part, a Node will grow along its own specific path (think about this more as NPCs building these towns out, rather than PCs individually putting buildings and walls up). A Node’s contribution area is larger than the actual town itself, allowing for players to adventure while building upon the town. We call the contribution area the Node’s “Zone of Influence,” and it’s the area where players help to advance the Node they are in.[2]

Auf jedem Server befindet sich eine Vielzahl an Entwicklungspunkten, welche Nodes genannt werden.[3] Zum Launch wird es 85 normale Node-Standorte geben, zuzüglich 15 weiterer Burgen-Nodes (5 Burgen x je 3 Burgen-Nodes)[4][5][6], was insgesamt 100 Nodes ergibt.[7]

We have moved from a 103 nodes to 85 nodes; and there's a few reasons for that. One, when we were doing the calculations behind how- in Alpha 2 and in the game- we want these vassal structures to exist, we had more nodes than what felt meaningful and we wanted to condense some of that those curated story arcs and hooks into the environment and realm around the areas to be more bountiful at a lesser node value: meaning bringing down the node count so that we can increase the richness of each of those nodes more than what was at 103.[7]Steven Sharif

Nodes are the heart of the world, they create the ebb and flow of life. At their core, Nodes are pre-set points in the world, wrapped in a Zone of Influence and surrounded by geographic areas that change over time based upon player participation. The world map is divided into regions, with each region containing multiple Nodes. As a Node advances, it influences the types of content within itself and the surrounding areas. Players do not create Nodes, but if they are a part of the government for a specific Node, they have the ability to influence diplomacy, and modify building types/construction and services within that Node.[8]Margaret Krohn

Arten von Nodes

Nodes exist all throughout the world and the location of said node will determine its type; but this type will be... seen at the first stage of development when the first stage when a node propagates real-time assets in the world; is basically these NPCs, these merchants that come into an area and they offer services and/or of stores or whatever the deal may be. You will see the flavor of the node from those merchants. So if it's a military node you'll see military people. If it's... an economic node you'll see merchants. If it's a scientific one you'll see scholars; and if it's a divine one you'll see priests and clerics. So players will have a very firm understanding of which node is which type in order to know how they want to progress.[13]Steven Sharif

Nodes gehören einer von vier (4) Node-Arten an, von denen jede über einzigartige Spezialisierungen verfügt.[8]

  • Spieler können den Typ der Node ab der ersten Entwicklungsstufe (Expedition), anhand den dort anwesenden NPCs feststellen.[13]
Node type.[8] Specialization.[8] NPCs.[8]
Göttliche Nodes Fokus auf Glauben und Fähigkeiten/Veränderung der Ausrüstung Priester
Wirtschaftliche Nodes Fokus auf Handel and Kaufleute Händler
Military nodes Fokus auf Kampf und das Training von Klassen Wachen
Wissenschaftliche Nodes Fokus auf Handwerk und Bau Gelehrte

Ashes of Creation allows you, the player, to decide the fate of the world around you. With each Node Type, you can change the flow of resources and goods in the world. Will you grow the largest Economic Metropolis and help guide the riches of Verra, or will you choose another path unlocking new stories filled with allies and enemies?[14]

Die Arten von Nodes sind vordefiniert und auf allen Servern gleich.[8]

For example, if a level 4 Scientific Node is destroyed, it will become a Level 0 Scientific Node. It will never be any other Node Type other than a Scientific Node. The location of these Types relates to the influences of the area around the Node.[8]Margaret Krohn

Node-Typen beeinflussen verschiedene Dienste und Systeme auf jeder Stufe der Node.[8]

Node-Typen werden während den Beta-Testphasen endgültig festgelegt.[15]

Beta testing will require that the node types be definitive; and that's because of how node types are integrated into the relating and corresponding neighboring points of interest and those quest lines. So it's not something we can swap very easily.[15]Steven Sharif

Vorteile von Nodes

Jeder Node-Typ hat eine Superkraft (ultimative Fähigkeit), die freigeschaltet wird, sobald die Node Stufe 6 erreicht (Metropole).[14]

Vorteile einer göttlichen Node

Göttliche Nodes auf Metropole (Stufe 6) können unter sich einen prozedural generierten "Mega-Katakomben"-Dungeon freischalten, welcher mit anderen göttlichen Vasallen-Nodes verbunden ist. In den Katakomben können besondere Bosse mit einzigartigen Beute-Tabellen gefunden werden.[17]

Vorteile einer ökonomischen Node

Wirtschaftliche Nodes auf der Metropolen-Stufe schalten die vernetzte Wirtschaft-Superkraft frei. Ökonomische Nodes mit dieser Superkraft teilen die Angebote ihres Aktionshauses mit anderen Auktionshäusern.[14]

Economic Nodes that have reached the Metropolis Stage unlock the Superpower “Linked Economy”. Any Economic Node with this Superpower unlocked shares Auction House listings with all the others, meaning that the items listed in one Linked Economy Node can be bid on from any other Linked Economy Node. Linked Economies also connect a Metropolis and any Vassal Economic Nodes belonging to that Metropolis.[14]

The Linked Economy Superpower has the potential to create a massive market that spans the world. This will allow players to attain and sell goods with ease, providing those who have access to these Economic Nodes a faster path to fortune in the lands of Ashes of Creation.[14]

Vorteile einer militärischen Node

Militärische Nodes schalten Kopfgeldjäger frei und verkürzen möglicherweise zusätzlich die Dauer der Verdorbenheit.[19][20]

Vorteile einer wissenschaftlichen Node

Sobald eine wissenschaftliche Node die Metropolen-Stude erreicht, schaltet sie die Superkraft Teleportation frei.[21]

  • Bürger einer wissenschaftlichen Metropole können zwischen der Metropole und jeder ihrer Vasallen-Nodes teleportieren, ungeachtet von der Stufe der Vasallen-Node, solange sich diese nicht im Krieg befindet.
  • Bürger einer Vasallen-Node können sich zu der Metropole und wieder zurück teleportieren.
  • Sofern mehrere wissenschaftliche Metropolen gleichzeitig existieren, ermöglichen Luftschiffe den Bürgern der Node sowie deren Vasallen-Nodes schnelleres Reisen zwischen den wissenschaftlichen Metropolen, solange sich die Metropole nicht im Krieg befindet.

This will allow Citizens and Vassals of Scientific Metropolises to do things more quickly than others, as fast travel is limited in the world of Ashes of Creation. They’ll be able to exchange goods and information with ease and get to locations in the world at a quicker speed in order to gather crafting materials to create recipes, as well as participate in limited-time events.[21]

Staatsbürgerschaft einer Node

Staatsbürgerschaft einer Node.[22][23]

Citizenship is, aside from nodes existing, one of the most important parts. So you as a player will get to become a citizen of these nodes: you're going to need to acquire some form of housing to be able to do that within that node's jurisdiction, it's zone of influence.[23]Chris Justo

Spielerbehausungen grants the ability to claim citizenship of a Dorf (Stufe 3) node or higher.[22][23][24][25][19] Gaining citizenship through player housing is not automatic. It must be claimed.[24]

When you become a citizen you enter in at a certain citizenship due structure; and citizens pay taxes to their node in the form of both property taxes based on what type housing as well as citizenship dues, which are necessary. And as you enter later into the stage of a node's development, you will pay a higher value on the citizenship dues or vice-versa: if you own a property later, you will be entered into a property tax that is higher based on where you enter that property ownership within the node's history. So those help to form a soft cap. Now, if payers are willing to pay more to be a citizen of a particular node, they have that option, but at some point it becomes restrictive.[27]
  • A player can only claim citizenship to one node at a time.[24][28]
You can declare citizenship to only one node and when you declare that citizenship. Let's say for example, one guild perhaps wanting to take all their members and have them all declare the same citizenship to a location. The longer a node exists the higher the prize it is to take and some systems with regards to crafting progression and/or rewards and bonuses or the reliquary that we haven't really touched on a lot, those systems are going to be so enticing that from an incentive standpoint it will compel other groups to either potentially break alliances or siege the city in order to take the goods that are potentially in it. So, from an incentive standpoint we have that at play. Additionally, we don't have a cap per-se that we've announced yet on the citizenship aspect of being in a node, but we do have soft caps. It becomes costlier the higher number of citizens each time one new person wants to join to be part of a node. So, there is sort of a soft cap on how many citizens one node can have and it might be that not all in the guild can participate in that area. So, there's a natural divide: A pseudo faction, so to speak between who is a part of that node and who is not.[27]Steven Sharif
Your account is bound to one declared citizenship per server, which means that if you have two alts and your main character on one server you may only be a citizen of one node between those three... If you have an alt on a different server, it could be a citizen of a node as well.[31]Steven Sharif

  • Citizenship tickets may also grant citizenship to certain node stages. This mechanic will be decided based on testing.[36]
  • A player does not need to declare citizenship of any node. These players won't need to pay taxes but will miss out on benefits of citizenship.[37]

Vorteile der Staatsbürgerschaft

Eine Staatsbürgerschaft bietet eine Vielzahl an Vorteilen.[19]

  • Titel.
  • Ansehen.
  • Ehre.
  • Loyalität.
  • Verdienste.
  • Beteiligung an der Regierung der Node (wählen oder Kandidatur für ein Amt).

Die Staatsbürgerschaft eröffnet dir eine Vielzahl an Vorteilen, darunter Titel, Ansehen, Ehre, Loyalität, Verdienste, und - wahrscheinlich am wichtigsten - die Regierung der Node. Als ein Bürger hast du das Privileg an der Regierung der Node teilzunehmen. Von der Wahl bis zur Kandidatur für ein Amt.[19]

Einflussbereich

Nodes are pre-set locations, wrapped in a zone of influence (ZOI).[2]

Every Node is given purview over a predefined geographic area called a Zone of Influence (ZoI). No matter where you go in the world, whether you’re questing, gathering, or raiding, you’ll be helping determine which nodes will develop, and what Zones of Influence will expand. Any area that a Node controls is considered its Zone of Influence, including Vassal Nodes, and all Vassal Nodes exist within the Zone of Influence of their Parent Node.[8]Margaret Krohn

Every node is given purview over a predefined geographic area called a Einflussbereich (ZOI). Player activity within the ZOI is weighted and counted toward a particular node’s advancement.[2]

The main thing that differentiates us from other MMOs is that we have a living, breathing, reactive world... Our world is separated into zones, which are then separated into what we call nodes. Nodes are sort of invisible zones of influence that listen to everything that a player does; so as players gain experience from killing things, gain experience from doing quests, gain experience through crafting things, the node is also gaining that experience. Once a node gains enough experience it levels up and then starts to attract NPCs to it .[38]Jeffrey Bard

Each Node can form into towns, but are limited by their neighbors. The Nodes have different levels of advancement. There can only be so many of each level. Think of this as advanced settlements needing more elbow room. Nodes encompass more land as they grow and will require more effort to be sustained. This system is a main driver for change in the world because it creates scarcity. As Nodes advance in stages of growth they will lock out neighboring Nodes from progressing, and will absorb their zones of influence.[2]

There is not a space where you will move in to do something and no node will get that experience.[40]Steven Sharif

Node simulation

Simulation of node interactions.[45]

This representation does show 111 nodes as part of this particular simulation. I'm not sure what the tick frequency is on this video. It might be something on the magnitude of like every second is probably 12 to 24 hours. So over time you start seeing these larger node systems building up to eventually where you might see Cities and Metropolises after some period of time; and what this allows the design team to do from a tools perspective, as they simulate this idea of how the world is going to progress, is it gives an opportunity to see strange happenings or something that we couldn't necessarily predict but was a possible outcome based on the variables present.[45]Steven Sharif

The developers have created a simulation of node interactions in preparation for Alpha-2 deployment of the node system.[45]

You can show the initial territories on the Verran map of what these particular nodes have governance over, or their Zones of Influence as we like to call them... As the simulation of this begins to advance and nodes begin to expand their territory and they begin to take over nearby nodes as a result of their of their growth, you start to see these power level ratings that are applied here on specific nodes that determines what type of takeover power it has and and what it pushes back against for other nodes that are looking to take over new territory as they advance.[45]Steven Sharif

  • It also simulates events, such as NPCs attacking and disabling certain node buildings and services. Failure to successfully respond to these will reduce the node's "health ticker", which will slow down the XP gains from the node.[45]

It also simulates events: So each of these nodes will have a health ticker: when that health ticker is impacted it'll stop gaining power or gaining or slow down in its gaining of experience; and that's because certain events can affect a node by disabling certain services, disabling buildings. Players don't respond to that horde of zombies that have come out of the nearby ravine then those zombies can attack stables, they can attack service buildings, and prevent particular types of quests or activities and services from happening until it's repaired.[45]Steven Sharif

  • Node-Belagerungen are simulated, with successful sieges destroying the nodes, and where unsuccessful sieges won't destroy the node but may result in disabled buildings or services, similar to events.[45]

It simulates the sieges if a particular node has a certain frequency that's set where we want to see randomization of how nodes get affected by sieges. Sometimes they'll be destroyed in the simulation. Sometimes they'll have disabled services again, similar to an event, because they didn't succeed necessarily at sieging the node but they did succeed at disabling some of the buildings as part of that siege.[45]Steven Sharif

  • It simulates what outcomes may happen in the live game as a result of player activity, such as splitting up a particular ZOI across a waterway, or having territories expand out to islands or across continents.[45]

It simulates what players could potentially do as well when the game goes live; and that might include things like splitting up a particular Zone of Influence across a waterway, having your territory expand out to an island, or across continents. These are these are the types of things that we want to see players do eventually obviously but this tool provides the design team the opportunity to see it repetitively and over a fast period of time so they see these different types of outcomes.[45]Steven Sharif

List of nodes

Node-Stufen

Illustration of node advancement from Wildnis (Stufe 0) to Metropole (Stufe 6).

Nodes advance by collecting experience from the actions of players nearby. As players complete content inside of a Node’s Zone of Influence (the area around the node), they contribute that experience toward the Node’s development. The experience given to the Node may then be modified based on certain Events and Accomplishments. When a Node reaches the experience required, it undergoes the process of advancing to the next stage. There are a few exceptions where a Node cannot advance even though it has the required experience - most commonly, a Node can not advance if a Node is a Vassal of another Node and would advance to the same stage as its Parent Node.[33]Margaret Krohn

Nodes haben sieben (7) Entwicklungsstufen, mit Erfahrungsschwellen für jede Stufe. Sobald eine Node die benötigte Erfahrung (XP) für die aktuelle Stufe angesammelt hat, steigt sie zu der nächsten Stufe auf.[8]

Entwicklung der Node

Alle Aktivitäten (Aufträge, Sammeln, Schlachtzüge, etc.) welche von Bürgern sowie allen anderen Spielern innerhalb des Einflussbereichs einer Node ausgeführt werden, tragen zum Wachstum (Fortschritt) dieser speziellen Node bei.[33][3]

Durch das Wachstum einer Node werden einerseits deren einzigartigen Inhalte freigeschaltet, andererseits wird der Fortschritt der umliegenden Nodes auf die nächste Stufe blockiert.[48]

  • Nodes steigen schnell auf die erste Stufe auf. Dadurch entstehen die ersten NPC-Dienstleistungen, beispielsweise der Verkauf oder die Aufbewahrung von items.[49]
  • Je fortgeschritttener die Node ist, desto größer ist ihr ZOI.[1]
  • Weniger weit fortgeschrittene Nodes (auch Vasallen-Nodes genannt), welche im Einflussbereich einer höherstufigen Node liegen, können weiterhin Erfahrung sammeln, jedoch müssen sie stets mindestens eine Stufe unter der ihrer übergeordneten Node bleiben.[50]
    • Das Vasallen-System tritt erst ab Node-Stufe 3 (Dorf) in Effekt, jedoch blockieren Nodes bereits ab Node-Stufe 1 (Expedition) das Wachstum ihrer direkten Nachbarn.[51][52]
  • Der Algorithmus zur Gebietserweiterung berücksichtigt nahegelegene Küsten, benachbarte Nodes, und die am häufigsten Besuchten Orte von Spielern innerhalb der letzten Woche, bzw. des letzten Monats.[53]
    • Aufgrund der Art und Weise, wie dieser Algorithmus den neuen Einflussbereich während des Aufstiegs berechnet, kann es vorkommen, dass zwei Nodes mit der gleichen Node-Stufe nah beieinander liegen.[54]

The way that the algorithm expands the territories takes into account a few things: One it takes into account the coast like where's the closest coast. Two it takes into account the neighboring nodes so it can take over and essentially vassal state those nodes, but what's more important is essentially the initial population based on like how players choose their races. Because we have nine different races and four different starting points that branch out, each server's population density is going to dictate essentially the first few nodes that are highly populated and then that initial seed is what's going to determine the node structure as it moves inland into the into the world essentially; and based on the performance and successes of different sieges will determine which nodes that got locked out from the previous the initial advancements what nodes can now be available to advance further. So I really think that with so many variables that are present in the equation of how nodes advance and stay existing with the more variables you have, the higher likelihood there is for there to be a significant diversion in world progression.[53]Steven Sharif

Normally the algorithm that's applied to the node territorial expansion will prevent significant nodes from being in close proximity to each other... There could be a perfect storm where all of the algorithmic progression of territory leads to having these nodes very close to each other because there's certain requirements that should that need to be available to satisfy node vassal takeovers; and it's possible that two nodes would never take each other over as vassals and end up close together and spanning their territories in opposite directions: The Tale of Two Cities thing.[54]Steven Sharif

  • Vasallen-Nodes geben überschüssige Erfahrungspunkte erst dann an ihre übergeordnete Node weiter, wenn sie ihre Level-Grenze erreicht haben..[50]
  • Bürger einer Node können zum Fortschritt anderer Nodes beitragen.[55]

Different people have different resources invested in nodes progressing and it would be a little "gamey" if you could know exactly what was necessary at that point because that would disincentivize people from participating.[57]Steven Sharif

Verschiedene Animationen und visuelle Effekte innerhalb der Grundfläche einer Node leiten den Beginn des ihres Aufstiegs ein.[58][33]

  • Spieler, die sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt innerhalb der Node befinden, werden zu einem sicheren Ort teleportiert (beispielsweise einem Spawn-Punkt).[58][59]
  • Um die Node herum spawnen Materialien, welche von systemgesteuerten Karawanen in die Node transportiert werden. Diese Karawanen können nicht angegriffen werden.[58]
  • NPCs beginnen mit den Bauarbeiten.[58]
  • Spieler, welche sich außerhalb der Node befinden, können die stufenweise visuelle Transformation der Node beobachten.[58]

The Development Area of a Node is where civilization will appear as the Node advances. As the Node Stage increases, different buildings, NPCs, and services will become available in the Development Area. The higher the Node Stage, the more complex and populated the Development Area becomes. Development Areas will also vary depending on the Node Type - Economic, Military, Scientific, or Divine.[33]Margaret Krohn

Vasallen-Nodes

Vassal node structure.[60]

This vassal mode structure tells you what it looks like for a sovereign at a level six metropolis stage; and what it can control at a maximum vassal network is two level five nodes, of which a level five node can control one level four and one level three as direct vassals; and then the four can control a three; and every three can control a one or a two. Now if the three gets removed through siege, the one or the two is removed as well. So that's an important distinction between the three's vassals, which technically isn't really a vassal relationship because there's no citizenships possible. Those vassals don't exist between three and X, but they do exist between four and three, five and four, and six and five. And what this also allows is that because there are 85 nodes that are within the world, we have a buffer zone of about 20 nodes that lives in a max server state. So if you had maximum five metropolises form in a world, you will have a number about 20 nodes that can live alongside those metropolis networks; and when or if a metropolis falls, that extra cushion of nodes around the five metropolis structures allows for the map to be redistricted in a way that is unique. It doesn't mean that one of the fives is just going to pick up where the last six left off and form the same exact metropolis structure. From a territory perspective it has ancillary nodes to play with and expand towards that redistricts the map, so that if a metropolis falls there's a significant difference in the layout of the world and the layout of these almost nation-like territories.[60]Steven Sharif

Village (stage 3) or higher nodes enslave nearby nodes, converting them into vassal nodes.[8][52]

There is a layer of intricacy between how the neighboring nodes advance and what potential parent structure they have in the vassalship tree.[61]Steven Sharif
  • Vassal nodes gain benefits from their regent node (also referred to as sovereign node or parent node) even if the node type of the parent is different to the vassal.[62][63]
It is not a bad thing to be vasseled, it is a good thing to be vasseled. It brings many benefits from the Sovereign, which is the ultimate parent of that vassal network down to the vassal node itself; and it allows that vassal node to even live outside of its normal mechanics. You get to adopt some of the benefits that the node type of your sovereign is, even if your node type as a vassal node isn't the same.[63]Steven Sharif
  • Regent nodes collect taxes from their vassal nodes. These taxes cannot be taken by the mayor or other players.[65]
  • Vassal nodes give excess experience to their parent node and may have their own vassals; so long as they fall within the parent node’s zone of influence.[65][8]
    • If a node is capped and is both a vassal and has its own vassals, any experience earned from itself or its Vassals is first applied to its own deficit. Experience beyond that is then sent to its parent node.[33]
When the vassal reaches its cap it overflows experience up to the parent; and so it can be very good early on for parents to get vassal nodes that are very productive- that have a lot of traffic.[65]Steven Sharif
  • Vassals are subject to the government, alliances, wars, taxes, and trade of their parent node, and are able to receive federal aid from them.[8]
  • Vassal nodes cannot declare war on their parent node or any of their vassals.[8]
  • Citizens of vassals are bound by the diplomatic states of the parent node.[8]
If a Node is a Vassal Node and is capped from advancing further, it first applies any experience earned to its own deficit (see Node Atrophy section), and then applies excess experience earned to its Parent Node. If the Parent Node advances and the Vassal is able to grow, it becomes uncapped. If a Node is capped and is both a Vassal and has its own Vassals, any experience earned from itself or its Vassals is first applied to their own deficit. Any experience beyond that is then sent to its Parent Node.[33]Margaret Krohn

Adjacent/Neighboring nodes

Angrenzende Nodes (Nachbar-Nodes) blockieren ab Node Stufe 1 (Expedition) das Wachstum ihrer direkten Nachbarn .[51][52]

Zonen und Entwicklung

Dungeon, Schlachtzüge, Weltbosse, Mobs, Aufträge, Events, Ressourcen, Narratives and other content within a node's ZOI will have a diverse level range; but will scale with the advancement of that node and its racial influence.[66][67][8]

  • Portions of the spawn tables (for mobs and resources) are static and other portions are dynamic and adapt to node development.[68]
We don’t have a strictly level 25 zone. Instead, that zone might have some level 10 creatures near the road, some level 20 creatures deep in the forest, and some level 30 creatures up the mountain. These ratios will change based on the Nodes that inform them, becoming generally more dangerous as the Node grows. All this civilization attracts the attention of Things-That-Should-Not-Be. This does not mean that wilderness areas are safe, by any means. Some may be safe-er, but all will have dangers that even the most experienced traveler needs to watch out for.[69]Steven Sharif

World manager

The World manager is an algorithm in Ashes of Creation that controls dynamic world elements. It acts as both a throttle and an incentive system for various activities to ensure certain parameters are within acceptable thresholds.[70]

A world manager is a technical term to define a server process that lives alongside the game server; and when the game server needs to do things- communicating with other game servers within that grid- it tells that manager and that manager sends it down to the appropriate server.[71]Steven Sharif
For example if you know iron is being used as a raw resource for a specific crafting path that might drive up the price of mithril or silver; and that will incentivize the market to course correct a little bit. The idea is to provide soft incentives that help to alleviate the demand and also to prop up the supply that might not be present from the economic systems.[72]Steven Sharif

Atrophie des Knotenpunkts

info-orange.pngEinige der folgenden Informationen wurden nicht kürzlich von den Entwicklern bestätigt und befinden sich möglicherweise nicht auf der aktuellen Entwicklungs-Roadmap.

Nodes accumulate an experience deficit each day based on the node's level, called node atrophy. The deficit is subtracted from any experience earned that day. If any deficit remains, then this is subtracted from the node’s experience pool.[33]

  • An atrophy system may be implemented, where accumulated atrophy points will progressively disable services within a node. The node may be destroyed if a significant points threshold is reached.[54]
  • A previous design concept was that nodes could delevel based on accumulated atrophy.[54][33]
There are intrinsic problems with reducing a nodes level as opposed to removing the node and it may be possible I'm just gonna say now that we don't actually atrophy nodes to delevel but rather accrue atrophy points that must be replenished over time; and if not it begins to disable services and further compound the atrophy problem; at which point when it reaches a certain atrophy point then the node would just disappear.[54]Steven Sharif

Node-Regierungen

Node-Regierungen werden aus den Bürgern einer Node gewählt, sobald diese Node die Dorf-Stufe (Stufe 3 ) erreicht. [19]

Positionen innerhalb der Regierung einer Node werden durch Titel erlangt, wodurch der Träger Zugang zu besonderen NPCs in der Node erhält.[74]

Es gibt viele Dinge, die ihr innerhalb [einer Node] anstreben könnt, die euch diese besondere Behandlung gewähren.[74]Steven Sharif

Bürgermeister

Alpha-1 Empyrean city node information panel.[46]

Mayors have a unique ability to elicit change within the node proper, either through the destruction of certain buildings that have been constructed previously, because there's a limited number of slots that buildings can be constructed within, or the kickoff of additional projects, or the certain types of policies that can be enacted, like... the changing of a tax rate. They all have a unified source of energy requirement and the energy requirement is a mandate.Steven Sharif[77]

Bürgermeister are chosen through different election methods according to the node's type.[1][8]

  • Previous mayors won't have any special system driven bonuses to help them get reelected.[78]
  • Players will be able to view a historical listing of mayors of a node.[79]

Node elections

Alpha-1 node election user interface.[80]

The village stage is a unique stage because that's when the government system comes online and all other stages past village there will have already been a cadence for the election system and it will follow that cadence, but after the initial village stage is completed there will be a one week period where players have an opportunity to establish citizenship at the village that also provides for the cooldown time that is- that would be present on players leaving another node to participate in in this particular node leveling up. But that after that one week period then there will be a one-week election process and then from that point moving forward will be the one month cadence that the node experiences elections on.[81]Steven Sharif

Once a node has reached Dorf (Stufe 3) there will be a one week cooldown period before node elections begin.[81]

  • This cooldown period allows players to establish citizenship at the village; which may require them to relinquish previous citizenship at another node.[81]
  • Following the initial cooldown, there will be a one week election process, then from that point on, elections will follow a monthly cadence.[81]
  • Node-Belagerungen may not be declared for 21 days following a node advancing to any stage.[82]
    • This was previously stated to apply only to nodes advancing to Dorf (Stufe 3), not higher stages.[83]

Node elections occur on a monthly basis.[81][84]

Führungsbefugnisse

Depiction of a mayor.[85]

The government has a lot of say in the direction of the node's development. Directing assets, building projects, tax allocation, defensive ability etc. Players have the ability to not only create these cities, but they have the right of self-governance.[19]

Mayoral leadership powers are granted to mayors via the use of mandates.[77][75]

  • Declaring war on another node and rallying citizens to the cause.[90][102]
  • Mayors will have an emblem generation suite that allows them to create their node flag.[107]
There definitely are differences... Some of the things that mayors can do are more universal, but then some systems have very specific if your node has a certain dominant race, or your node is a certain type, or it's in a certain biome. So there's even differences between where it is too.[108]Chris Justo
  • Some decisions require the mayor to be present in the ZOI of the node. Most do not.[109]
  • If a mayor does not make certain decisions within a set period of time then the system will make a decision for them.[110][111]
Q: The idea behind all these nodes are awesome, but I wonder how it will actually play out in the live version. The problem is having player run or the problem with having player run towns is that people come and go in video games. So, will towns die out etc?
A: We incorporate as part of those designs certain fail-safes, certain protections, certain automated progression that takes over when some of those decisions are lacking or are not made; and those decisions can be defaulted. Now, of course, that would have a deleterious effect on the direction that a particular node might want to go, because they're going to be doing default behaviors, or default actions, as opposed to something that might be in line with the strategic objective of that particular node, or the specialization that the node has previously been attempting to do. But that is why we have a regularly recurring election period where players can take the reins of power and can elect someone else to come in and participate and and re-right the ship, so to speak. So it is absolutely a component of having player-driven mechanics that there is an opportunity for things to be less than ideal, or less than strategic when certain bad-faith actors or people leave, but there are safeguards in place.[110]Steven Sharif

  • Choosing a node name from a predetermined list.[112][113]

Knotenpunkt-Steuern

Bürgermeister können Steuersätze für ihre Node festlegen.[91]

Bürgermeister/Node-Regierungen weisen Ressourcen, Steuern, und Aufträge zu , um bei der Entwicklung der Node zu helfen.[97]

  • Steuergelder fließen nur in die Finanzierung der Nodeentwicklung. Dieses Gold kann nicht vom Bürgermeister oder einem anderen Spieler abgehoben werden. [65][94]
  • Die Steuersätze skalieren basierend darauf, wann ein Spieler einer Node als Bürger beigetreten ist. Das Ziel ist es, finanziellen Druck auf die Node-Populationen auszuüben, indem die Steuern mit fortschreitenden Nodes, immer teurer werden, anstatt harte Bevölkerungsobergrenzen einzuführen. [26]

Übergeordnete (souveräne) Nodes erhalten einen Teil von allen Steuern aus Unterkünften und Dienstleistungen, welche von ihren Vasallen-Nodes gesammelt werden. [65][116]

  • Diese Steuer wirkt sich nicht unbedingt auf den einzelnen Bürger, da die Steuersätze der Bürger von ihren Nodes bestimmt werden , aber die Finanzen der Node wird von der Besteuerung beeinflusst, die von seiner übergeordneten Node erhoben wird.[116]

Node wars

Node-Regierungen können einer anderen Node den Krieg erklären und Bürger für die Sache gewinnen. [102]

  • Dadurch werden die Bürger der kriegführenden Node, einschließlich ihrer Verbündeten, gegenseitig als Kombattanten gekennzeichnet. [117]
  • Vasallen-Nodes können ihrer übergeordneten Node oder ihren anderen Vasallen keinen Krieg erklären. [8]
  • Node-Kriege können jederzeit ausgerufen werden, aber die Ziele erscheinen nur während der Server Prime-Time.[118]
    • Spieler können sich während des Krieges jederzeit gegenseitig töten (nicht nur während der Server Prime-Time).[118]
We have conditions that you can set between nodes with regards to either nodes being friendly with each other and acting trade alliances, or they can declare war on nodes similar to how guild wars may function in different games, where those citizens become hostile to each other based on the player government that's elected in the particular node. So those systems all cater to allowing a conflict that's meaningful and that also provides a non-imbalanced relationship between stronger guilds and not as strong guilds.[27]Steven Sharif

Interne Konflikte

Innerhalb der Node wird es keine Bürgerkriegsmechanik geben, aber es wird Spielraum für interne politische Konflikte geben; wie die Untergrabung der derzeitigen Führung und die Störung des Handels.[119]

Wir möchten, dass die Konsequenzen eine Rolle spielen, und wenn diese Person gewählt wurde, müsst ihr mit den Mitteln der Mechanik arbeiten, um sie abzuwählen.[120]Steven Sharif

Allianzen

Ashes of Creation bietet diverse Inhalte, die sich um Allianzen drehen.[121]

Content that revolves around alliances specifically and progression within the development of that alliance; and the ability to share some common services between guilds that are part of that alliance. I think that additionally allowing alliances to toggle certain relationships with nodes as an interaction is beneficial. That's going to provide an interesting dynamic for players who are either members of the particular node that has the relationship established or members of the Alliance. So I think that obviously building systems is is about creating the channels by which these players can form bonds and the more layers you have around those channels of bonding between the different guilds or players, the more sustainable that relationship.[121]Steven Sharif

Node quests

Storyline quests (Story arc quests/Narrative quests) contain objectives for each chapter of a story arc.[122][123][124][125][126][19]

  • Players can progress each chapter by completing story arc quests within the timeframe that each chapter is active.[124]
    • Phase timers are shown (in the quest UI) to indicate how much real-world time is available to complete the quests in each phase.[123]
    • If the player completes all quests in a particular chapter, they will need to wait until the next chapter to obtain further quests.[127]
  • Story arcs can branch into different stories with multiple possible endings depending on the quest objectives that players complete during each chapter.[122][123][125]
You can't really farm the quests in any meaningful way, because once you've done the quests in a chapter, that's it until the next chapter. Whether 1000 people participate or 10, the chapters will stay active for the same length of time, and as long as you participate in the clearly-marked time frame in your quest journal, you're good. The only thing that a concentrated effort can help with is influencing the narrative paths through the arcs.[127]Skott B
There will be many different quests that actually have stages of the storyline; and these stages can actually be failed. You can actually fail a storyline; which sucks when you think about it, but at the same time that risk makes your investment that much more important.[125]Steven Sharif

Rassenspezifische Quests

Aufträge may be based on a character's race.[130]

Different quests may relate to who the primary cultural contributor is to a node. This won't lock out content, but will add flavor to the quests.[130]

There might even be different directories of the quest that exist for specific races, and even though you're sharing a quest to kill a boss, if you're human and I'm an elf, I will have a different arc potentially that leads in a different direction than you, even though we took the same quest; and this can relate to who the primary cultural contributor is to a node unlocking different arcs for cultures that share the primary culture of a node - not that locks out content but it gives a flavor in a different direction so that not everything is so cookie cutter.[130]Steven Sharif

Race matters because narratives have paths that also are influenced based on the primary contributing culture to the node... If you're a Niküa and you have you're in a Niküa node that's predominantly Niküa, you're going to have certain services and/or abilities as a member of the Niküa race that other races may not have access to... They may have alternative quest lines, but they won't have specific ones. Now those specific Niküa quests will then relate to the meta-narrative that's present in the world and they'll start to direct some of that meta-narrative; and that'll be beneficial for your kind because it will unlock certain content for your race that other races haven't unlocked yet. So there is an incentive there to see progression along that line now in order to curb the progress of a dominant race.[131]Steven Sharif

Aufträge that are race specific, title specific, or guild specific will likely be less than 10% of the total number of quests. 90% of quests should be able to be shared by everybody.[132]

Mayoral commissions

Alpha-2 Mayoral commissions.[22][89]

Mayoral commissions serve as a strategic decision base for the mayor. What issues am I facing? What issues do I believe I will face? How is this aligning with my strategy? And then how will my citizens help me help participate in accomplishing these goals so that I'm best set strategically for what I intend to do with those commissions?[133]Steven Sharif

Mayoral commissions are simple types of quests with singular objectives that are able to be initiated by mayors.[22][89][87]

  • There will be a cap to the number of commissions that can be accepted by a single player.[134]
  • Mayoral commissions can be conducted by both citizens and non-citizens, but only citizen contribution will generate mandates for the node.[134][89]
Q: Is participation always going to be greater for larger nodes by default, or can a small node with close to 100 participation still greatly benefit from them?
A: That's gonna come down to what commissions the mayor is initiating. Level three nodes aren't going to be initiating mayoral commissions that require thousands of players to participate, because they don't have access to those; where Metropolises that have a huge citizenship base will get access to those kinds of commissions. So the rewards will be proportionate to the node level and the expected amount of citizens.[135]Chris Justo

Node reputation

NPCs reagieren - je nach ihren Beiträgen zu der Node - unterschiedlich auf Spieler.[136]

Steht ein Spieler auf der Hassliste eines NPCs, wird jeder Spieler, der diesen Spieler heilt, bufft oder anderweitig unterstützt, ebenfalls der Hassliste des NPCs hinzugefügt.[137]

Node-Gebäude

Alpha-2 Service buildings.[22][138]

The important thing with the service building system for us is that it's a way to shape your node like a character; and to give you an exclusive niche that you can carve out in the world; or a niche that you fight over. If you go down this weaponsmithing path and you build your node to be this mecca of weaponsmithing and the node three doors down builds it, there's reason for you to conflict over it. They're taking your business. Or maybe you are in a zone and there isn't a weaponsmithing thing anywhere near you, and you do want to start to carve that path for yourself to make your node a place people visit and come to.[138]Chris Justo

Service buildings within a node are either default buildings that come with the node, or they are constructed buildings, which are initiated by the mayor and built by players.[22][138][139][140][141][142][143] Service buildings are further broken down into two main types:[22][138]

Constructed service buildings are available to every type of node in every location. Where the uniqueness comes in is in some of the default buildings like your node-type building.[144]Chris Justo

Service buildings are upgraded by expansions, which are unlocked through the placement of passive service buildings.[22][138]

  • Building expansions unlock higher tier workstations at the cost of dedicating service building plots.[62][141]

Service buildings incur a regular maintenance cost of node commodities and gold from the node treasury in order to continue operations.[22][147]

Node layout and style

Racial architecture of the same Dorf (Stufe 3) node on different servers. Dünir Dwarven influence (top). Kaelar Human influence (bottom). Alpha-1 Nicht NDA Bildschirmfoto.

The layout and architecture within a Node’s development area are determined by influential race. For example, a stage 3 Node with the majority of player contribution being Py'rai would have a Py'rai village with Py'rai architecture. Most NPCs would be Py'rai elves, and offer questlines within the Py'rai narrative.[8]Margaret Krohn

Each player’s contributed experience is flagged with their character race and other identifiers. When a Node advances, the race with the highest experience contribution determines the Node’s style and culture. This style and culture change can happen at every Node Stage. For example, if a Node advances to Level 2 - Encampment Stage and 51% of all experience was earned by Ren’Kai players, the Node will be a Level 2 Ren’Kai Node. If that same Node advances to a Level 3 - Village Stage Node, but the Py'Rai contributed 62% of all the experience earned, then the Node will be a Level 3 Py'Rai Node.[33]Margaret Krohn

Node layout and style is determined by several factors:[148][149]

The way that the node system is built is that they can exist across a spread of 18 biomes, but at the same time have to represent the cultural influence of these cultures that are intrinsically a part of a specific biome.[150]Steven Sharif
Currently the way that the platform system is set up, is it's capable of adjusting the topography of the node's footprint, regardless of the surrounding terrain. So the reason for that is we want to have flexibility in the presentation of the node's layout and how it is essentially both from an aesthetic standpoint as well as a mechanical standpoint with node sieges- how it's constructed and that construction should have the ability to take on a variance of different types of topography. So it shouldn't be dependent on the surrounding area. Now that's not to say that the surrounding area isn't going to have some influence over. So for example... we're experimenting a little bit with the platform tech and putting up a node up against the side of a mountain or on the edge of a cliff or something that has a beautiful vista. Those are things that we're going to test out obviously as we continue to work on the node tool and how that platform system works, but the idea is to have the node independent of the surrounding terrain.[151]Steven Sharif
Some parts are determined by the area it's in. Some parts are determined by the type it is. Some parts are determined by the race it is; and then the rest of it is determined by the mayor.[149]Jeffrey Bard
All nodes, whether they're associated with a castle or associated with normal node structure, has cultural influences that replicate over to the buildings that are produced and the NPCs that are present.[157]Steven Sharif
  • The rest is determined by the node's mayor.[149]
    • It should be possible for a node to complete several building projects within a mayor's one month term in office.[158]
Q: How long would you say it will take players on average to fill/build up a node completely from wilderness to metropolis?
A: It's one thing to get a node to a certain level: it's another thing to develop the node; and I can't really give you an on-average expectation, because there's a lot of variables at play. There's how many citizens does the node have attracted to it; what's the type of traffic that the node is attracting to it based on things like its tax rates, or the specialization that it chose to spec into, based on the building types it's chosen to build. All of those things are variables that can affect the quote-unquote "average build-out time" of a particular node. So it's difficult to give you an average when there's so many variables along those lines. But the idea is that if there is a particular project that players are interested in in developing based on the node stage, that they would have the ability to complete several of those projects as within a single term of a mayor; and a term of a mayor is one month.[158]Steven Sharif

Racial influences

Alpha-1 Dorf node layout.[159]

Wir haben im Wesentlichen Sets, die über alle Rassen hinweg existieren; und jede Rasse, die diese Rüstungssets trägt, wird ihren eigenen rassischen Einfluss auf die Präsentation dieser speziellen Sets haben. Das ist etwas Einzigartiges in der Art und Weise, wie jede der Rassen diversifiziert wird. Je mehr eine bestimmte Rasse zur Entwicklung einer Node beiträgt, desto mehr manifestiert sich dies in den architektonischen Einflüssen dieses bestimmten Nodes. Ihr werdet sehen, wie sich die Architekturen dieser Rassen auch innerhalb der Nodes manifestieren: Das ist eine weitere Art, wie wir jede Rasse diversifizieren und die Kultur jeder Rasse im Spiel durch diese Architekturen, durch diese existierenden Requisiten, durch die Schneiderei präsentieren der Rüstungssets, die der NPC tragen könnte, zu den verschiedenen existierenden Fraktionen. Fraktionen werden auch ihre eigene Zugehörigkeit zu verschiedenen Rassen haben. Jede Rasse wird auch eine andere Nomenklatur haben, wenn es um die Überlieferungen oder Orte in der Welt geht. Sie werden auch ihre eigenen sprachlichen Einflüsse haben: Die Art und Weise, wie sie sprechen, wird zwischen den Rassen unterschiedlich sein; wenn Sie Dialogbäume mit bestimmten NPCs haben. All diese Dinge tragen also wirklich dazu bei, eine immersive Welt zu schaffen, in der die Kulturen ihre eigene Identität haben[152]Steven Sharif

Kulturelle Einflüsse manifestieren sich in vielerlei Hinsicht, von der Node und Ausrüstungsästhetik bis hin zu NPC languages und Überlieferungen. [152][160][33]

  • Das Aussehen der Ausrüstung bestimmter Rüstungssets wird von der Rasse des Spielers beeinflusst. [152]
  • Das Nodelayout und der Stil werden von der Rasse beeinflusst, die am meisten zu dieser Node beiträgt. [152]
    • Vorteile können für Bürger der dominanten Kultur gelten, können aber auch für Mechaniken der Node gelten, was auch für Mitglieder andererRassen von Vorteil sein kann. [160]
    • Es gibt Zermürbungsmechanismen, die Erfahrung und Einfluss beeinflussen, um eine einzelne Rasse davon abzuhalten, die ganze Welt zu dominieren. [131]
  • NPCs reagieren unterschiedlich auf verschiedene Characterrassen. [130]

Es gibt eine Abnutzung und diese Abnutzung von Erfahrung und Einfluss wird basierend auf der Leistung des Rennens in der Welt erhöht. Wenn also all diese Nodes Ork-Nodes sind, dann ist ihre Abnutzungsrate sehr hoch, um mit der kulturellen Etablierung neuer Nodes zu konkurrieren, weil sie mehr Einfluss in der Welt haben und eine populäre Meinung gegen sie in ihren abgelegenen Regionen ist, in denen sie keinen Einfluss haben[131]Steven Sharif

NPC racial interaction

NPCs werden unterschiedlich auf verschiedene Tags eines Charakters reagieren.[130]

  • Zum Beispiel, Elfen-NPCs können mit Menschen anders interagieren als mit Elfen.

Unique node buildings

Jeder Art von Node ist ein einzigartiges Node-Gebäude zugeordnet, das ab der Entwicklungsstufe Dorf der Node aktiviert werden kann. Dieses einzigartige Gebäude spielt eine zentrale Rolle in dem Fortschritt der Zivilisation eines Server.[14]

Reliquienkammer

Node relic.[162] This is a protective relic that is preventing an attack. Once stolen, it enables a siege against the metropolis.[163]

The reliquary is a node building in Ashes of Creation that is used to house relics.[164][165][166]

  • Benefits will also be conferred to those who capture, steal or sabotage relics held the reliquary.[167]
When the node is destroyed, the reliquary's contents become available for spoil amongst the attackers; and now even though they weren't citizens might have access to what they wouldn't have access to before, because they weren't a citizen. They'll have access to grab a number of those instances of that material and that's going to be an important aspect because relics are going to be important as part of the whole crafting scheme. So this incentivizes- it acts as an incentive for players to want to engage and battle with these nodes and try to take what they have.[165]Steven Sharif

Node building destruction

Destructible castle.[168]

You could be more precision oriented in the decision to attack a city. Let's say it's a rival node that's trying to reach a node stage five or something and you want to disable their ability for the religious system to progress so you target the temple during the attack, or you want to disable their scholars academy from reaching a higher level so that your nodes can; or you want to disable multiple buildings that allow for experience and quests to be undertaken by its citizenship, which prevents them from keeping up in pace of experience gained with your node. These can be more precision oriented and don't have to effectualize an actual takeover of the node.[169]Steven Sharif

Node-Gebäude (including player housing) have hit points and can be damaged or destroyed by different systems.[146][170]

Mayors will also have the ability, if they want, to demolish constructed buildings. So if they if they so choose they can destroy a building if they don't think it's needed anymore. But this will have mandate cost and a player buy-in votes. So we want to make sure that [the] mayor can't just go and blow up the whole node if they're trying to grief or something. So this is very important and impactful decision.[22][147]John Collins

If building maintenance is not paid, or a building is damaged as the result of an event or siege, the building will enter a state of disarray.[22][147] Any NPCs or services offered by that building will not be available until the building is repaired.[140][170]

If a node siege is successful, or if buildings otherwise take significant damage, they are destroyed and appear as rubble on the plot they occupied.[22][147][146]

Spielerbehausungen

Pre-alpha Empyrean freehold homestead.[181]

Players will have the ability to survey and develop land anywhere in the world. Be a pioneer deep in the wilderness, build the home of your dreams, and work the land to cultivate resources and supplies. Alternatively, stick with civilization and safety in numbers – purchase a home within the confines of a village and watch your investment grow as that village turns into a city. Homeowners in our game will have the ability to develop their plot of land as they see fit. Focus on farming, animal husbandry, or own your very own smithy. You’ll be able to specialize your land to maximize your profits or your comfort – be sure to choose wisely.[182]

Spielerbehausungen is player-owned accommodation in the form of Apartments, Grundbesitz, Inns, and Statische Behausungen.[23][1]

A player may own up to one of each type of housing simultaneously.[184][185] Statische Behausungen and Apartments are one per server; Grundbesitz are one per account.[186]

Spielerbehausungen Art. Verfügbartkeit. Limit.
Apartments Instanziert.[1] Dorf Stufe und höher.[187] Eines pro Server.[186]
Grundbesitz Open World.[1] Dorf Stufe und höher.[1] Einer pro Account.[186]
Statische Behausungen In-Node.[1] Dorf Stufe und höher.[1] Eine per Server.[186]

Statische Behausungen

Statische Behausungen provides non-instanced player accommodation within a node, also known as in-node housing.[1]

Apartments

Apartments sind (instanzierte) Wohnungen in Gebäuden innerhalb einer Node, die eine Housing-Funktion bieten.[1] Es werden zu Beginn 50 Apartments zum Verkauf stehen, sobald eine Node sich zu einem Dorf (Stufe 3) entwickelt. Weitere Apartment-Gebäude können in einer Stadt (Stufe 4) gebaut werden, wenn der/die Bürgermeister/in sich entscheidet diese auf einem verfügbaren Baugebiet zu errichten.[189][187]

  • Die Anzahl der verfügbaren Apartments erhöht sich automatisch während der Node-Weiterentwicklung.[187]
  • Zu einem früheren Zeitpunkt wurde bekannt gegeben, dass Apartments erst ab der Stufe Stadt (Stufe 4) oder höher verfügbar wären .[1]

The mayor may additionally construct apartment buildings when the node hits stage 4 at one of the building plots in the node, along with cities gaining additional static housing and apartments by default as a normal part of the leveling process.[187]Steven Sharif

Grundbesitz

Freehold in Alpha-1.[193]

Three main purposes that freeholds provide are allowing players an opportunity to express themselves in a highly customizable fashion. So these are plots of lands that you have access to. You can build different types of buildings on. You can create housing and place furniture; and you can grow livestock and you can just own this piece of land. And one unique thing about allowing the players express themselves through this manner in Ashes of Creation is that it's in the open-world, so it's not an instance or a phase location that you are customizing. You're actually leaving a mark on the world that's representative of you as a player, as a character. Something you can you can roleplay. But importantly enough, when it comes to the economy, freeholds also provide the highest level of processing that's available; and processing is one of three primary branches that exist within the artisanship system. Processing is the intermediary step between what you gather in the wild and what you eventually craft via recipes. The the other primary purpose of freeholds is that they allow you to offer certain types of business services, because we don't just want to make freeholds delegated to the individual owner. We want it to have capabilities to interact with other players as they're walking past your freehold- as they're going to these hunting grounds and participating in quests or events that might be existing around; and that means that location matters for the freehold, because it's important to the business.[194]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 freehold walkthrough.[195]

We got some sheep; we got some cows and pigs; and we got some chickens back there; and we have a lot of space for different farmables. So we have a wheat here, corn, and then tomatoes over there as well.[195]John Collins

Grundbesitz are sizable player housing plots that can be situated in baronies within the Einflussbereich (ZOI) of a Dorf (Stufe 3) or higher node, including the ZOI of any of its vassal nodes.[196][197][198][199][200][201][202][1]

The idea is that we're not reserving freeholds for the top 10 percent of levelers, we're reserving freeholds for the top 10 percent across the multiple different play paths that exist within the game; and this spreads out that ownership across different playstyles.[210]Steven Sharif
Housing takes several forms in the world of Verra. However, Freeholds are the highest tier of player housing available. Acquiring a Freehold is a major accomplishment, and it will take a large amount of effort and strategy to get a Freehold of your own. Since there is a limited amount of space available to place Freeholds in each node’s region, these are symbols of prestige for those who are able to acquire and maintain their Freeholds.[196]
  • The developers are expecting the number of freehold plots on each server to be in "the low thousands" depending on world state.[196][215][216][217]
The number of Freeholds on a server will vary on a number of factors, such as how player actions advance nodes. At the moment we are targeting the low thousands for Freeholds on a server, but as we continue to test these systems during Alpha Two, we anticipate making adjustments.[196]
  • Blueprints are required for the construction of the freehold buildings that are used to process resources into processed goods.[219][220][221][222][223]
    • The best processing can only be carried out on freeholds, so obtaining a freehold will require a large amount of effort.[224]
    If a player wants to achieve a freehold they can achieve the freehold, however the amount of effort resources and time that's required in order to achieve that freehold is a large amount. It is something that is a monumental achievement for you to to get that freehold; and the reason why is because freeholds tie in very heavily to the processing artisanship aspect. Some processing can be done in nodes, but the best processing is done on freeholds; and we want to make sure that there's a little bit of a throttle or gate on the amount of effort that's necessary to achieve that influence over the processing market.[224]Steven Sharif
    Just because the freehold is very difficult to attain doesn't mean that you don't have a space for housing and furniture that you can achieve through our apartment system or an inn or the static in-node housing. Those are alternate methods as well but they do not have that aspect of the best processing is done on the freehold.[219]Steven Sharif
  • Events do not target personal belongings such as freeholds.[226]
  • The spread of corruption in the world does not impact the freehold system.[227]
info-orange.pngEinige der folgenden Informationen wurden nicht kürzlich von den Entwicklern bestätigt und befinden sich möglicherweise nicht auf der aktuellen Entwicklungs-Roadmap.

An- und Verkauf (Immobilien)

Spieler kaufen die Rechte für Spielerbehausungen direkt von der Node.[19] Spieler können Immobilien auch mit anderen Spielern handeln.[1]

  • Behausungen werden einen Grundpreis haben, der mit der Anzahl der Bürger in der Node skaliert.[228]
  • Die entwickler wägen eine auktionsbasierte Methode ab, um neue Immobilien zum Verkauf zu stellen, wenn eine Node sich entwickelt.[229]
    • Es wird einen Zeitpuffer geben, bis die Behausungen zur Auktion zur verfügung stehen.[229]
    • Die akzeptierten Startgebote werden bei einem Mindestpreis starten, der sich an der Anzahl der Bürger orientiert.[229]
    • Am Ende der Auktion gewinnt der Höchstbietende das Haus.[229]
  • Statische Behausungen und Apartments können von anderen Spielern gelistet und verkauft werden.[230][231]
    • Es gibt keine Höchstgrenze für wie viel der Verkauf eines Gebäudes von Spielern einbringen kann.[191]
    • Spielerbehausungen, die während einer Nodebelagerung zerstört werden, können nicht mehr verkauft werden.[178]
    • Grundbesitz kann nicht an andere Spieler verkauft werden.[230] Das kann sich möglicherweise im Verlauf der Testphase noch ändern.[232]

There's no cap essentially in player originated sales. Those are determined essentially by supply and demand as it is within the game and there's no artificial barrier to how high that demand can go.[191]Steven Sharif

  • Der Hausbesitz kann wieder an die Node zurückgehen, wenn der Besitzer es versäumt seine Gebäude-Steuern zu zahlen. Die Steuerschulden und Strafgebühren werden dem neuen Besitzer im Rahmen einer Zwangsvollstreckung in Rechnung gestellt.[228]
  • Spieler werden das Limit für die Anzahl ihrer Spielerbehausungen nicht überschreiten können.[233]

This will allow players to transfer real property goods. This includes ... static housing, this includes apartments that they may own; and they can sell those because those will have a limited and finite quantity.[233]Steven Sharif

Miete- und Leasingkonzepte befinden sich aktuell in der Begutachtungsphase.[233]

Some concepts that we have is going to be rental or leases that could be had allowing players to lease a property for a period of time where they will have control rights over utilizing storage based on the area, controlling the furniture or access point; all that stuff.[233]Steven Sharif

Node-Belagerungen

Node-Belagerungen ermöglichen es Spielern, eine Node zu zerstören.[33] Dies ebnet den Weg für die Neuentwicklung und den Zugriff auf die gesperrten Inhalte in den umliegenden Nodes. Aufgrund dieser Dynamik spielen politische Konflikte und Intrigen eine wichtige Rolle in der Struktur der Welt.[3]

Angriffe auf Nodes werden für die Angreifer eine Herausforderung darstellen. Städte und Metropolen werden einen erheblichen Abwehrvorteil haben. [3]

If you own a home in a node and you don't want to see that home destroyed, you need to defend that city![235]Steven Sharif

Der Großteil (~80%) der Inhalte in Ashes of Creation sind open-world, möglicherweise kann es jedoch instanziierte Kämpfe innerhalb von Burg- und Node-Belagerungen geben, bei denen bestimmte Gruppen an kleinen, kurzzeitigen zielbasierten Kämpfen um bestimmte Zwischenziele teilnehmen können.[236]

Bestrafungen für den Tod gelten nicht für zielbasierte Events (wie Karawanen, Gildenkriege, und Node-Belagerungen).[237]

Node destruction

Nodes can be destroyed starting at Level 3 - Village Stage, and are destroyed through sieges. Sieges are started via an item which is acquired through a quest that scales in difficulty with respect to the level of the Node which is being targeted for the siege. Once the item is brought to the Node and is activated, the declaration period begins and a countdown is initiated for players in the region to see. This countdown runs for a number of days equal to the level of the Node being sieged. Once the countdown is complete, the siege begins. There is a cooldown between sieges, and players must wait a certain amount of time after an unsuccessful siege before a new siege can be declared. The higher the Node level, the longer the cooldown between sieges. If a siege is successful, then the Node is brought down to Level 0, and anyone who was a citizen of that Node is no longer a citizen.[33]Margaret Krohn

Nodes can be destroyed starting at Dorf (Stufe 3) following a successful siege against that node.[33]

It is a normal process of the world to see PvP be a catalyst for change. That is one of the defining elements of our world building approach and being a PvX game is that PvE builds the world and PvP changes the world; and as these nodes get destructed this should be a normal habit that players are accustomed to seeing that landscape changing over time, because it is the breath of renewal that then is allowed as a result of that action.[32]Steven Sharif
Those are like open-world battlegrounds that spawn on the footprint of the node after a successful siege. And these are opportunities that previous defenders have to salvage certain materials and/or equipment from the destroyed node, or that attackers have to do the same. And there's interact points that live within that environment that take time in order to interact with, which makes those individuals susceptible to potential ganking or fighting. And you can control those areas; and that exists for some period of time. It's like an open-world arena system.[173]Steven Sharif

Impact on player housing

Player housing designs and decorations are retained and can be placed again later if the housing is destroyed during a node siege.[196][179][180]

Impact on in-node housing

info-orange.pngEinige der folgenden Informationen wurden nicht kürzlich von den Entwicklern bestätigt und befinden sich möglicherweise nicht auf der aktuellen Entwicklungs-Roadmap.

Following a node siege, static housing will be scaled back or destroyed based on the advancement of the node.[179]

  • If the housing was purchased at a higher advancement than the node currently is then it will be destroyed, otherwise the housing will be scaled back.

Impact on apartments

Apartments können unter den folgenden Umständen zerstört werden:[179]

  • Falls das Gebäude während einer Belagerung zerstört wurde, selbst wenn die Belagerung nicht erfolgreich war.
  • Falls die Node durch die Belagerung unter Stufe 4 (Stadt) fällt.

Impact on freeholds

Grundbesitz may be attacked by any player for a period of two hours following a successful siege against its parent node.[244][245][33][246] Freeholds can also be lost by foreclosure for not paying property taxes or other fees.[196]

  • Players and their allies may defend their freehold for this period of time.[246]
  • Structures and guards may be obtained to defend freeholds during this period.[246]
When it comes to losing Freeholds like this, one person’s loss is another person’s gain. While there aren’t enough Freeholds in the world for everyone to have one at the same time, this cycle of players losing Freeholds creates opportunities for other players to acquire one.[196]

After the two hour period of open combat following a successful node siege, any remaining freeholds will exist under a grace period for roughly 1 week where another node may take over the zone of influence of the freehold.[245][33]

  • The freehold owner will be required to undertake a quest process to have their freehold adopted by a new node if one exists.[245]
  • At the end of the grace period, if the freehold does not reside within the ZOI of a Dorf (Stufe 3) node or above, it will be destroyed.[196][33][245][247]
If a siege is successful, then the Node is brought down to Level 0, and anyone who was a citizen of that Node is no longer a citizen. Freeholds within the Zone of Influence are subject to a period of vulnerability. These Freeholds can be destroyed by other players during a period of roughly 2 hours after a successful siege. Destroyed Freeholds are subject to material loss, and blueprints for them are mailed to the player to utilize for future placement in order to allow the player to keep their Freehold’s layout and structure. Once the vulnerability period is complete, any remaining Freeholds will exist under a grace period for roughly 1 week where another Node may take over the Zone of Influence of the Freehold.[33]Margaret Krohn
Q: How many times a year do you suspect that most players will be moving residence based on nodes being eliminated from sieges?
A: There are a lot of variables that influence that answer. I'm not sure I can give an average, but what I would say is that depending on the political dynamic of a server: if a server tends to have more combat and/or sieges against nodes, that is going to increase the amount of opportunity for freeholds to be removed from the world and then replaced. I'm not sure I have an average. what I will say is that it is very important to remember that Ashes is not a PvP game and it is not a PvE game. It is a PvX game and that has a very specific meaning. It means that as these systems are developed as they are designed and they are integrated with each other: they are done so from a competitive viewpoint and how that system relates to both PvE and PvP. Freeholds are one of those systems very much so and it's because of the cyclical nature that we're attempting to achieve with the development of nodes and the destruction of nodes, the world is a rapidly and dynamically changing place really. So it's intended to be something that is constantly recycling and is leaking out different types of content and new content that revitalizes the player interest and stimulates new points of conflict or cooperation.[248]Steven Sharif

Node redevelopment

A node that was successfully destroyed by a node siege may develop differently due to the following influences:[148][249]

Unterreich-Nodes

Unterreich-Nodes and nodes directly above them are considered adjacent but do not exist in the same ZOI.[41][42][43]

  • There will be "bleed over" between underrealm nodes and surface nodes in terms of influence and interaction.[42]
    • There may be visual cues above ground that indicate influence from underrealm nodes in that area.[42]

That might be a little bit of a departure from our design in the past. I know originally like two-plus years ago we were discussing how those would be independent of each other, but I think as we further defined the layout of the world map itself it made more sense for those to have some interaction and influence that's combined.[42]Steven Sharif

Küsten-/Inselknotenpunkte

Es wird Nodes entlang der Küste und auf Inseln geben.[254]

  • Diese Nodes werden wasserorientierte Einflüsse haben. Zudem stehen Fähigkeiten, Dienstleistungen, und Questlinien zur Verfügung, welche in Verbindung mit der See stehen.[254]
  • Küsten-Nodes verändern die Spawntabellen des umliegenden Wasser-Contents und können auch bestimmte Events auslösen.[255]
  • Häfen in Küsten-Nodes werden Questlinien haben, welche sich auf den Ozean und nahe gelegenen Inseln beziehen.[255]
  • Es könnte möglich sein, eine Küstenstadt über den Seeweg zu belagern.[256]

Inselketten sind ein Teil des Ashes of Creation See-Inhalts.[257][258]

Unterwasser-Nodes

Unterwasser-Sehenswürdigkeiten mit NPC Strukturen können wie Städte aussehen, werden aber keine Knotenpunkte sein.[259]

  • Es wird keine Knotenpunkte unter Wasser, oder im Wasser geben.[254]

Beschützergilde

Eine Gilde wird zum Beschützer ihres Knotenpunktes, wenn sie die grösste Menge an Arbeit (von den Mitgliedern) zum Wachstum des Knotenpunktes beiträgt.[260]

Beschützergilde schalten die Folgenden Vorteile für ihre Mitglieder frei:[261]

Eine beliebige Anzahl Gilden kann sich in einem Knotenpunkt aufhalten, aber die Anzahl an Beschützergilden ist limitiert. Knotenpunktstufen bestimmen, wieviele Beschützergilden in einem Knotenpunkt gleichzeitig existieren können.[262]

Aktienmärkte

Stock exchanges (also called Stock markets and Share markets) enable players to buy and sell shares in Nodes, Gilden and Soziale Organisationen.[263][264][265]
