Obelisk9990 & Xynjy
This began with an old source, but I have added countless things, and over 6,000 lines of code (and probably removed about 2,000 lines from the original code), enough that I am not ashamed in calling this version my own. I am the sole coder behind this iteration, but Xynjy is co-owner and he has provided a plethora of ideas and contributions to this project over the last 15 months, not to mention his connections to the community. For this reason I consider Budokai Adventure as much his project as it is mine.
Our goal for this game is to be the hardcore anime-inspired multiplayer RPG everyone strives for. We don't believe in instant gratification. We think this type of game is most fun when you have to put in hard work to develop the strengths of your character.
All forms of training in this game encourage active play. The "Train" verb is present, but don't expect it to be very rewarding. You will see the most gains from sparring splitforms (whether that be 1 or an army of them), sparring other players, using active training equipment, etc.
We have tons of new ideas to add to this project in almost all facets, such as upcoming new technology/science ideas, transformations, races, ranks, you name it. Our #1 guideline is that we intend to keep all content close to its original anime, so we are avoiding all fan-made content. But we do support some content from other anime as long as its canon. If you wish to contribute ideas, we have a fairly active Discord you can join here.
After many updates and a long wait, our official launch is ALMOST here. I apologize for the wait, but I want to release something that has quality. Unfortunately I have set my own standards very high, but this is for the benefit of the community. I want to deliver a game that is stable and balanced. We have been running numerous playtests privately. I sincerely apologize for the release getting delayed so many times. I had a few real-life problems I had to sort out, and I have also been focused on removing every little bug because I have high standards. I don't want to be one of those people who just releases a byond game riddled with bugs and then the game dies in a week. I promise it will be worth the wait. Instead of giving a release date and being unable to honor it, I have decided to list the features that still need to be finished/implemented before release. This will give everyone a better idea of our roadmap.
Features left to finish before release:
Balance racial stats
Balance stats of transformations for non-Saiyans
Create Auto-Rank system
Make KoV rank way more desirable
Add some more ranks
Add and remove some skills
Add and remove some technology
Add God transformations/forms for non-Saiyans

Improve controls for spaceships
Add some additional hairstyles

Version 10.0.4 (01/30/20)
-severe nerf to majin, which was one of the culprits behind daimaou being OP
-made doors able to be opened by clicking them. This resolves the directional bug with doors not automatically opening
-Half saiyan and saiyan transformations fully balanced, requirements changed, multipliers changed etc
-all transformations in the game now require base bp not current bp
-stats in the game properly cap now with a new dynamic system I wrote and stuck into the powerranks() proc. This system dynamically calculates your stat caps by comparing your stat values to average server stats and accounts for your own stat mods as well as the stat mods of other players when comparing
-Players can no longer fire beams while moving
-Fixed mystic and gave it a new formula for boost. Also made it so it affects all races similarly. Previously, humans had a very nerfed version of mystic that sucked. I think that's unfair so now they get mystic like other races.

-made it so the cost of things gets divided by your intelligence
-fixed and updated sense
-removed the 3 levels of sense, local, global, universal, and replaced with 1 version. So now there is only "Sense"
-added admin tag in ooc
-added admin chat
-new hairs added
-revival orb added
-added new icon for resource drill, same as du now

-significant interface updates
-removed many outdated and unused interfaces
-merged all chats
-Added "Race" and "Birth" to stats, because these were the only stats contained in the gridstats panel I removed
-changed many menu items (the drop down menus on top of the window) to much nicer and accessible things
-nerfed ssj forms
-nerfed lssj more
-added power grading system
-Made it so players have build enabled by default, no longer requiring admins to unlock build for players. (I meant to do this a while ago
-stat interface redone
-powerbar correct display BP percentage
-BP in stats now also shows current percentage
-Added a 100% effective system to prevent stat hoarding
----you can now only subtract a total of 7 points from your starting stats to add to your stat point pool, regardless of anything

-made it so changing class resets your stats for sure
-Made it so the back button doesn't keep your stat points spent if you wanna change race
-god ki now requires base bp, not current bp, should fix a lot of issues, don't know why I didn't do this earlier
-fixed bug where you could obtain god ki during ssj which resulted in hair fucking up
-removed popo stare from stat creation, it was a troll from rebirth dev left in the code
-set a hotkey for build: N
-removed many many things from other tab, and moved some important things from here into a dropdown menu category at the top of the screen
^This last thing took 2 hours, just saying
-made it so you can redo your stats after 1 in-game year has passed
-fixed major bug where all races' stat mods were +1.0x higher in every category than I intended
-fixed vampire regenerate, now adds +2x regeneration and only temporarily, instead of permanently. You also move very slowly while regenerating, making regenerate unsuitable for direct combat and more of a passive recovery.
-Removed Regenerate skill entirely, now only passive regeneration like majins have exists, but vampires have it too.
-nerfed rank BP boosts all around to 20x lower
-Vampire absorb does something now, forgot to mention this.
----vampire absorb makes it so you leech harder than before while it's active with your punches

-Made build way more convenient. Now when you select a turf, you automatically place that turf everywhere when you walk like in DU, instead of having to click it every time.
-Made some of the turfs labeled as "walls" actually function as roof walls so that players can't see thru them.
--I think in the future I will remove the concept of "roofs" and only walls will be actual walls and everything else will be a "floor."
-adjusted and rebound some hot keys to more convenient keys
-added ships to purchasable technology
-Removed Aerial Recovery, Aerial Payback, Pursuit, Reverse Dash, and Throw verbs
-rebalanced changeling/icer race and the transformation stats for frieza, cooler, king kold, and chilled classes (all four icer classes)
--Chilled class gets their transformations earlier than any other icer race, but are the weakest
--King kold has a single transformation which unlocks very late (@3 million) but has a very big boost
-changed icer meditation and training rates and made it so they vary depending on class
--Frieza has best training rate
-changed starting stat mods of icers at character creation
-fixed popo race
(Popo race has absurdly high starting stat mods, like 80x durability. I assume this was a troll move by the last dev. It has now been undone)
-removed tech tree because I don’t like it
-technology is now going to be unlocked based on your intelligence and knowledge rather than a stupid tech tree

meditate now makes your bp 100% instantly if your BP is over 100%

-made it so now you don't become "too tired to power up" until 4% of your energy. It was previously 10%
-gravity mastered appears in stats below gravity
-made it so being too tired to transform is now based on energy and not fatigue since I removed fatigue

-Added Global Speed verb for admins
-Added Train Verb back to the game
-Made is so stats start low so players have something to work towards

-Simplified Skill Tree Menu - Again
-Added more beams and blasts to menu
-Added a little procedure to stop players from ever being frozen for more than 10 seconds
-Fixed Dragon Dash

-Made is so Train gives you some in all stats even if you are focusing on 1 stat.
-Changed several tile textures to newer nice textures
-Added nicer entrance to kami's lookout
-Adjusted interface - much cleaner now
-got rid of tech tree entirely, now you just buy technology - I plan to make this intelligence based
-Made it so stats gain in a more balanced and better way (all stats alternate when gaining now instead of all flooding at once)
-Meditate still gives you only resistance and force(and a lil energy) but it gives you more of these than train do by a subtantial amount
--Added awesome new Zanzoken to the game w/ zanzoken mastery! You use it with double click just like DU. No more hotkey needed.
-god mastery system in place
-god ki displayed in stats
-super saiyan god red added
-super saiyan blue added
-base god form for all other races added
-new ssj god hair and aura
-new ssj blue hair and aura
-coded DNA container from scratch, using icon from phoenix for them but that's it
