Can popping an illusion make the person accept you?
Or can dispel illusion be removed? not to weaken creates(would it even?)
but I for one am sick of spending 5 or more minutes checking Ucolors
and typing and exact text to make an illusion, just to have some doofus
half mage, who doesn't like your play, come by on his level 20 alt and
pop 700 mana worth of illusions with one damn spell, I could understand
if it had been there for a while, everyone had seen it, or was spammy
or disgusting/perverted(as most of mine are :P) but 90% of the time its
just some low level create, taking out his anger at not being able to
kill things, on my poor illusions, and this bites!
So i say make dispel not affect major illusion, and if you got a problem
find an imm! Or just run around with a potato sack and a rubber hose
and use that treatment on the people who pop things for no reason, till th
they stop doing it...

Maybe 90% of illusion poppers are low level creates, but 90% of illusionis
are not very good at what they do. The ease of being able to dispel
keeps us from having to be subjected ugly and spammy illusions. :P

just go creating major illusions with 100 mind mages, they are not
as susceptible to dispel illusions from lvl 20 half-mages, i hear.

Perhaps require casting dispel magic individually on each major
illusion (whether on an object or not) to get a chance to dispel
Minor illusions could still be dispelled with the dispel illusion
Requiring dispel magic would at least mean that the person dispelling
would have to put out an amount of mana similar to what you used to
create your illusions, especially if they aren't successful on their

Actually, if I were you, I'd bug that. IMO you shouldn't
be able to dispel something if you can't fight the person.
I remember making that change for charmies awhile ago, so
maybe if this makes it to the coder-to-do list it'll get

the coder-to-do list is too long you can't even find the end
i doubt illusion poppers is ever going to be a high enough prio
to get on the list

I think that should only be coded in if it's accompanied by a toggle
option to not see illusions. Maybe we can make it so you don't see
illusions by people you have gagged...I dunno, but a lot of illusions
are intensely lame and there has to be some way for us to protect
ourselves from em ;)

It's really quite simple. Make your illusions good, and they won't be
popped. If it is ugly, I will dispel it. And I'll continue as long as
you abuse the spell by forcing people who haven't accepted you to see
it. Think before you waste 700 mana creating spam like a fake fight, or
the who list.

shut up milo... why does everyone have to whine?? this problem has
a very simple solution... DONT POP ILLUSIONS YOU DIDNT MAKE!!!

"Shut up"...oh you're an intelligent one Shmeck, it never ceases to
amaze me how some people have nothing to add except to try to shut others
down they don't agree with. We were given the spell, and so long as it
is possible/legal to do so, I will destroy illusions that are an assault
to my eyes. Think of it as checks and balances.
