MapleSEA or MSEA/MSSEA (short for MapleStory South East Asia) is the South-East Asian version of MapleStory. It is written in English and is meant for the countries of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand (though people from other countries can sign up as well). MapleSEA is run by AsiaSoft. There are currently nine worlds in MapleSEA, all of which are named after constellations or stars.
MapleSEA was created on 23 June 2004.
All the worlds are named after constellations, except for the world "Izar", which is named after a star. Each world is created in an alphabetical and chronological order (first world starts with 'A', second 'B' and goes on).
MapleSEA started off with one world; Aquila, which was released on the same date when MapleSEA was launched. Bootes was launched on 13th of July, 2005. Soon after, on December 5, 2005, Cassiopeia was launched. On November 30, 2006, Delphinus was launched. On the 4th of June, 2008, Eridanus was launched. On November 19, 2008, the world Fornax was launched. On the 20th of May, 2009, the world Gemini was launched. The next world to be released was Hercules, which was launched on September 2nd, 2009. The latest world is Izar, lauched on 18th November 2009. Gemini was the only world that used a chinese client. However, the chinese client was removed in the V0.80 Patch.
There are 2 different gateways in MapleSEA; Singapore and Malaysia. You can access Fornax, Gemini and Hercules worlds from the Malaysia Gateway whereas the other six worlds (Aquila, Bootes, Cassiopeia, Delphinus, Eridanus, Izar) can only be accessed from the Singapore Gateway.
After the Jump! Patch on 8th February 2012, the Singapore Gateway will be called Ares. Ares is the God of War. The Malaysia Gateway will also be renamed, but to Artemis. Artemis if the Goddess of Wilderness. Located beside this paragraph are the new looks of the new Gateways, after the Jump! update has been made with a manual patch. The picture of Ares Gateway is located on the left, while the picture of Artemis Gateway is located on the right.
