Default [Game Kiss] Developer's Diary #4

Greetings, this is Valkyrie Sky.



Following on last week’s episode on PvP, this week’s theme is the Life System.

There are three kinds of life systems in Valkyrie Sky: fishing, cooking, performing.

They play a big role in Valkyrie Sky and we are putting a lot of effort in these systems

to add more fun than just shooting.


Several changes have been made to the life system. First of all,
I will tell you about the skill points integration.
The skill training that was originally divided into 3 parts with level cap of 500 is now
combined into one and the level cap is raised to 1000. You can choose one of the skills to
train and decide where you want to concentrate. The skill training is now divided into
5 parts: beginner, intermediate, expert, specialist and master.
There is a checkpoint every 100 skill points and specific requests that need to be satisfied
in order to go on to the next level such as minimum character level requirements and level up
quests. If any of these conditions are not fulfilled, you will not be able to get to the next
level and will not gain skill points.


(You can view the integrated life skill information in the character information window.)


There have been many suggestions regarding the life system from Valkyrie Sky users.
The life system was originally developed to restore the stamina consumed in different stages,
because stamina consumption rate in Valkyrie Sky is very high. That is why additional features
of the game are developed in focus of stamina restoration. Fishing, especial, was meant to be
the best place for socializing (chatting is most actively done at the fishing spot!) and was
considered a very effective supplementary system. But many users thought fishing control and
its motion was too monotonous and boring. So we decided to accommodate all the control related
suggestions and apply them. Hopefully, this will increase the user satisfaction.


Now let’s take a look at the ‘chance’ system.
The ‘chance’ system is a system where you can control the game in detail on a certain
probability. When you are given this chance, you will obtain a special reward if you succeed in
fishing or cooking.
I hope you look forward to it and if you are lucky, you will get lots of chances. Good LUK!


Let me provide some tips for the chance system.
When you are chance fishing, the fish escapes if you pull too hard on the fishing rod but it
will also escape if you let go too much. To fish successfully, you need to repeat pulling and
letting go while maintaining the balance. For chance cooking, you have to adjust the heat and
keep flipping the fish for 15 seconds to cook both sides of the fish evenly. The outcome of the
cooking is different according to how you cooked and you have a chance of obtaining at least
two to five bonuses. Once you start chance cooking, you cannot stop, so you will need to adjust
the heat well according to the time allocation.






Let’s look at each life system in more detail. Fishing contest feature is added for fishing.
You can see the fishing contest notice at Kirrdroa. You will find all the contest-related
information like the date of the event and fishing points here. The winner of the contest is
rewarded with a new title for 3 days and a chance to catch a super fish. This special fish has
a secret that other fish don’t have. I will leave that for you to find out yourself.


(Hmm… fishing contest… take the challenge if you consider yourself a fisherman!)


Next system we will look into is cooking. The new cooking system is much simplified compared to
the former system. The former system was too complicated because there were too many ingredients
to add because the recipes were provided by default. But now, it has become very simple in return
for not revealing the recipes. In the new system, all you need is a fish and a cooking ingredient
to cook. To see the effects of the cooked food, you will have to taste it yourself.
Please be mindful when you cook. Otherwise, the fish may not be cooked well or burned.





For performing, 4 new wooden whistles have been added. Also, the whistle sound (high notes)

has been improved in quality. Please keep in mind that high grade whistle of level 30 and up

can be obtained from organizing patterns. Regrettably, this is all we have for updates in performing.
(But it will continue to improve, so keep looking forward XD)


This week’s diary was about the changed life system.
I hope you will have more excitement in Valkyrie Sky with the newly added features.
This is it for this week. I will be back with updates in new quests next week!


Thank you sincerely.

Chance fishing seems more interesting. Chance cooking reminds me of cooking mama. ><

They should implement a weight system to fishing. Heaviest catch of the day title anyone?
