Changing Slot Strings?

Robar says, 'is there a way to make a slot change to your string long time after you made it, as in a slot change type of coupon or something'

Robar says, 'or could there be. an idea maybe?'

LadyAce says, 'you can get a slot string changed any time you restring an item'

Cipherz says, 'well you can get a new item and restring it and change the slot'

Robar says, 'hm, but if you like to keep both the old item and the old string there is nothing to do?'

LadyAce says, 'we're sorta trying to avoid increasing the number of types of coupons'

LadyAce says, 'well, a new coupon would do it too'

LadyAce says, 'the more types of coupons we have, the harder it is to maintain a good availability of all types without an excess...'

Robar says, 'yes but its an old damroll item and an old prize machine string so it would be hard eh?'

LadyAce says, 'not if you had a coupon'

Geber says, 'a coupon for slot change seems kinda extreme'

Robar says, 'so basicly i need a coupon to remake the string'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Robar grumbles.

Azeem says, 'then you keep the eq?'

Robar says, 'ok'

Robar smirks.

LadyAce says, 'right, we only eat eq when the string is transferred from one item to another'

LadyAce says, 'putting string on top of string on top of string doesn't hurt the destination item'

Azeem says, 'nice..'

Robar pats Azeem on the head.

LadyAce says, 'the "source" is what gets eaten, whether it's the eq the string was on, or the coupon you used.'


Can We Get Changes to Suger?

Robar says, 'its more like a plea than a question, why is suger always dead? and do you think it could have something to do with his enourmous amount of gold coins?'

Kaige says, 'prolly'

Geber chuckles politely.

LadyAce says, 'seems like a good guess :)'

Robar says, 'so maybe the amount could be lowered a bit? (knows suger has been on a poll)'

Kaige says, 'a few people have mentioned it in their idea/bug reports'

LadyAce says, 'If you need him alive, an illusion or marked note might do the trick'

Robar nods solemnly.

Robar says, 'I waited for him for hours only a few days agi'

LadyAce says, 'leave it there for people to see -- ask 'em not to kill him etc'

Azeem says, 'maybe you should raise the money and the hps on him..'

Azeem says, 'then people wont go kill him unless you have to..'

Kaige says, 'feel free to also drop Charity mudmail with the suggestion'

LadyAce says, 'or, you could stake out Kaige's reboot on Fridays, I guess :) but asking others to work with you on it is the usual way people do this sorta thing'

Kae says, 'if you ask me he should fight as well as Metacomat for that sum, but hey'

Robar says, 'raise the money, lower the hp and make him roll over when people draw their weapon'

Kaige nods her agreement with Kae.

Azeem says to Robar, 'NO!'

LadyAce says to Azeem, 'then you can drop her a note suggesting she *not* change it :)'

LadyAce giggles.

LadyAce says, 'other questions out there?'

Kae says, 'make him supertough, make his item actually have value ;)'

Kae ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'I've also seen the same complaint about the pardoner too tho'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

Robar nods solemnly.

Kae says, 'he's too easy for his cash in my view'

Robar says, 'complaint? I am not complaining!'

LadyAce says, 'I think it's nice for there to be a few mobs where you can get that nice cash rush, even if it's easier than average'

LadyAce says, 'it's like the world cuts you a break now and then'

Geber nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Robar says, 'yes, but does it HAVE to be word teachers?'

LadyAce says, 'aye, there's the rub :) Send your thinking to Charity.'

Robar nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'might be neat if there was a way to get it without killing him, and killing him only got you *certain other items I won't mention*'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Kae says, 'like begging used to be?'

LadyAce says, 'I was thinking more questylike'

Kae says, 'that'd be good, yeah'

Azeem nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Kae says, 'spamming beg 50 times seems... dull :)'

Kaige says, 'stealing is fun, when it works'

Robar snorts in disbelief at Kaige's last comment.

LadyAce says, 'so, who else has questions?'

Geber says, 'both of those knock me out. Questing would work though'

Kaige says, 'well, note that I'm the patron goddess of gerbils, thieves, and other small rodents... so if it fits your rp'

Kaige shrugs helplessly.

Kaige says, 'but yeah.'


Cause Charm Limit Change?

Robar says, 'I just want to state that I am confused about cause mages and charms limit, I thought it had something to do with my mind, but then one day it was different from what it used to be'

Kae says, 'I actually thought for a while that 80 mind gave most zombies'

Kae says, 'hrath and I made 8,000 raises on a testmud, though, it's not true'

LadyAce giggles at Kae.

Azeem says to Kae, 'you a knight ?'

LadyAce says, 'down with magic numbers!'

Kae says to Azeem, 'try coffeemonster!'

Sandman says to Kae, 'do everything in 8k increments when testing?'

Kae says to Sandman, 'don't look at me, he coded it ;)'

Sandman cringes in terror.

LadyAce says to Robar, 'I don't know of any code changes there...lemme see what we've got on that.'

Kaige says, 'nothing recent I don't think'

Robar nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'which creatures were you summoning? coulda been a small luck component or something'

Kae says, 'there aren't that many options for cause ;)'

LadyAce says, 'oh, cause, duh :)'

Robar says to Emrysia, 'the same as I always do, 3 saebels and a bunch of skellies'

Robar grumbles to Emrysia.


All Affects Show in Status?

Sandman says, 'now.. my first autoresponse for the answer of this q is.. we cant tell you buuuuut'

Sandman says, 'do all affects always show in status? or are there hidden affects?'

LadyAce says, 'they should all show up, if they're truly affects'

Sandman says, 'aka barkskin.. i seem to have problems hitting with a con weapon blunt like.. vs barkskin'

Kaige says, 'there are some I think that don't..like deafness I think'

LadyAce says, 'but you can also be affected by pcflags due to quests and mob interactions'

LadyAce says, 'oh, that's a good point, deafness.'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'but things like resistences should show up'

Sandman says, 'could it just be the ac given to the mobs that makes me hit less.. or just the weapon? or what i was thinking.. is con weapons dont hit as hard as they should with 30 hit/da,'

Sandman says, 'given a str weapon or dex.. with 30 hit/dam i would decimate consistantly and rip decently..'

Sandman says, 'but given my con weapon i use.. i assault.. ineptly a lot.. far too often for 30 hit/dam'

Sandman perks up..

Sandman says, 'did i lose someone in that?'

Sandman has a problem with explaining at times..

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we have an answer to that, quite'

Kaige says, 'sorry.. so the question is, your blunt weapon doesn't hit well against barkskin?'

Kaige says, 'or something else?'

Sandman says, 'against barkskin.. and in general..'

Kaige says, 'well, the former makes sense to me...'

Sandman says, 'barkskin it hits way worse tho'

Kaige giggles.

Robar says, 'so.. why do i suck?'

Robar ducks under Sandman.

Kae says, 'well, err, strength weapons tend to weigh more, that's definitely part of the picture'

Sandman says, 'well what im thinking is.. even with the light weight weapons.. with that hit dam we should decimate and rip a lot.. but ofcourse they do lower damage than str'

Sandman says, 'so doing high damage with con weapon lighter.. like 6-8kg.. capping isnt that powerful given their max damage..'

LadyAce says, 'I think we're kinda leaving balance alone right now'


Post Titles?

Geber says, 'I haven't been around much lately. This is probably an old question.'

Geber says, 'What's up with post titles? I read the help but it wasn't much help. How do I find out about the quests?'

Geber says, 'have only seen about 4 assassins'

Kaige says, 'You can also ask the people you see with 'em.'

Kaige nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'it's a new kind of reward -- like whoises, we don't give a table of how to get what'

Kaige says, 'I don't think a lot of areas have quests that give them yet.'

LadyAce says, 'it's just a thing you might well get when you do a quest'

Kae says, 'yet'

Kaige nods her agreement with Kae.

Geber says, 'ok. Thanks'


Ideas on Twohanded Items

Sandman says, 'did you say you werent tackling any balance issues?'

Sandman peers around intently.

Sandman says, 'cuz um.. if i could would like to get into 2handed things a bit..'

Sandman says, 'and no i dont want extra stat..'

Sandman peers around intently.

Sandman says, 'so may i or is it a lost cause?'

Sandman peers around intently.

Robar says, 'hurry up and ask before they stop you'

Sandman says, '2h guns/bows.. would like to see damaged upped some.. or maybe even a side affect of being shot.. like losing moves'

LadyAce says, 'well, we can listen to your ideas and stuff ... but I don't know of any rebalancings in the works'

Sandman says, 'if your shot a lot.. before long your not gunna be able to move well..'

Sandman says, '2handed axes swords.. maybe take away expert parry if ppl are using it with it.. somehow check and negate it.. but up the % it rolls higher damage rolls'

Sandman says, 'and for now.. some of my perc idea.. maybe make it faster to reload shoot with no weapon and a big gun.. with the higher damage..'

Sandman says, 'the basic of the perc idea i wrote was for skill trees honestly'

Sandman says, 'because it would need a whole new set of skills etc'

Sandman says, 'was just tossing that idea on the board in hopes that 2handed guns/bows get beefy and tasty to use'

Kae wants a Tiger Mark IV with an .88 mm anti-aircraft cannon.

Sandman grins evilly at Kae.. wonder what he's thinking...

Sandman says, 'but yeah.. 2handed weapons guns etc etc.. maybe instead of this ppl wanting more stats.. add affects like the gun/bows killing some moves of the victim.. maybe limn them..'

Sandman says, 'and weapons just rolling a % higher than normal 1h weapons..'

Sandman says, 'if im correct.. the damage rolls depend on %'s..'

Sandman says, 'then you add all the other stuff after..'

Sandman says, 'like dam max damage on weapon etc..'

Sandman says, 'i could be horribly wrong.. but you got the idea =p'

Sandman says, 'also quick thing on 2handed guns/bows..'

Kae checks her pockets. No ideas there. But then, fortunately, balance issues aren't her dept.

Sandman says, 'maybe make more aimable things to shoot at while aiming for them'

Sandman says, 'seeing 2handed should be more accurate then 1h'

Sandman says, 'maybe like.. aim for leg.. to cut more moves.. or arm for chance of hitting weapon out more.'

Robar says, 'wouldnt it be simpler to just ask for more damage on 2h weapons and guns?'

Sandman says, 'head for more total damage.. or center mass etc'

Sandman says to Robar, 'yeah im throwing out other ideas for trees etc'

Sandman says to Robar, 'the second part was anyway'

Robar says, 'oh. skill trees'

Sandman says, 'the aiming different parts would prolly be skill trees discussion ;)'

Kaige says, 'yup, or at least positional combat'

Sandman nods his agreement with Kaige.

Sandman is just tossing out ideas before he forgets them again..

Kaige nods solemnly.

Robar refuses to learn!

LadyAce says, 'idea channel would be a good place for this kinda stuff -- make sure it's recorded in the place where we look for ideas when it gets time to do such things'


Bug with Kick Fixed?

Sandman says, 'oh did yall fix the typo's with the kick msg's?'

Kaige says, 'not yet. tho god know's I've tried.'

Sandman says, 'when it shows like... (space) you kick etc'

Kaige says, 'which is why it's stillposted on the welcome board'

Kaige giggles.

Sandman says, 'aah'


Expies -- How's it going?

LadyAce says, 'how've the expie-nominating processes been going out there?'

Sandman says, 'uh.. i havent been here so not so good =p'

LadyAce says, 'we did this whole 'no campaigning' campaign this time....'

Sandman says, 'hard to nominate ppl when ya not here hehe'

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

LadyAce says, 'has it seemed successful at toning down the irritating stuff?'

Kae says, 'yes, it has, thank god, thank you, thank you'

Sandman says, 'i havent seen much promoting lately..'

Emrysia says, 'i have no clue who to vote for'

Robar says to Emrysia, 'me'

Sandman says, 'before it was like a promote fest..'

LadyAce says, 'vote, vote, vote!'

Kaige says, 'there seem to be a token few who took it as a challenge to see how far to push it'

'Best male RP' ... *ponder* Emrysia! *snort*

Emrysia shrugs helplessly.

Sandman says, 'ya know.. i have never won one of those things =p'

Robar says to Emrysia, 'not you, me!'

Emrysia says to Robar, 'i can't nominate your for everything'

Sandman says, 'ive been nominated.. 1 time for string =p'

Kae says to Emrysia, 'yeah, nominate him for best female'

Emrysia giggles at Kae.

Robar says to Emrysia, 'why not?'

LadyAce says, '10 nomination ballots have come in so far :)'

Emrysia says to Robar, 'because i have to nominate me for everything'

Emrysia rolls her eyes, exasperated with Robar.

LadyAce says, 'so you know your vote will count :)'

Sandman says, 'well i could be silly and send in a ballet full of myself =p'

Kae sented hers.

An aura of heavenly light appears above Sandman's head.

LadyAce says, 'even if you can't fill out the whole thing, that's ok :)'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kae.

LadyAce cheers for Kae - huzzah!

LadyAce gives a firm poke in the ribs to everyone in the room.

LadyAce says, 'the rest of you .... do it!'

Sandman says to LadyAce, 'is that legal?'

Sandman says, 'is it ok to nominate yourself?'

LadyAce says, 'very very few people fill out the whole thing'

Kae says, 'tacky :p'

Emrysia says, 'i'm working on it.. i have it about half filled in, but i seriously don't know who to vote for.. so i end up just voting for people i know'

Kae says, 'legal, but tacky :p'

Emrysia wrinkles her nose with distaste.

LadyAce says, 'oh, sure, you can nominate yourself.'

Sandman says to Kae, 'its the only way i could get on the balot =p'

Robar tried today. Filled in two names. Put it off to later.

LadyAce says, 'well, don't forget :)'

Kae refuses to vote for herself. Period. Tacky. Yuck. Meep.

Robar snorts derisively.

LadyAce says, 'you have another 10 days, so don't let it get too far buried in your pile of stuff to do'

Sandman says to Kae, 'and only reason i did the 1 time i did.. it was a joke because ppl started telling me they would nominate it =p'

Robar will remember - of course.

Kaige says, 'they're due back on the 26th! but that doesn't mean you should wait until then'

LadyAce says sarcastically, 'yea, do me a favor and send it back before 5 minutes before the deadline :)'

Emrysia will remind him.

Emrysia nods to herself.

LadyAce points at Sandman.

Emrysia pokes Robar in the ribs.

LadyAce giggles at Emrysia.

Sandman snickers softly.

Emrysia says to Robar, 'fill in your expie nominations.'

Robar says to Kaige, 'why not? what if you send it in today and something really great happens tomorrow?'

Kaige says to Robar, 'cause it wouldn't count for this year's ballot'

Robar says to Kaige, 'but it will be forgotton next year'

LadyAce says, 'write yourself a note'

Kaige says, 'so write it down in a file'

Kaige says, 'I saved a few illusions and cool chats I saw over the year'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce too.

Sandman nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Emrysia says to Robar, 'i think they're telling you to be more organized'

Robar snorts in disbelief at Emrysia's last comment.


Imm-Sponsored Mort-Run Trivia?

Sandman says, 'is it possible to get trivias going sponsored by imms run by morts ever again?'

Kaige says, 'doubtful'

Sandman sighs loudly.

Sandman says, 'i would run trivia a lot if i had stuff to give away..'

LadyAce says, 'get donations. there are folks with lots of extra junk'

Sandman says, 'specially movie trivia!'

Kaige says, 'I bet people would also like tough to get gear, not just coupons/strings/etc too... especially if you do it in character'

Kaige says, 'they can either turn around and sell it, or use it themselves'

Kae bets there'd be a turn out for razor griffies.

LadyAce says, 'or even just unique zips, I've seen as runnerup prizes and such'

Sandman says to Kaige, 'true.. tho i hardly come upon hard to get gear'


Paralyzing Backstabs?

Sandman says, 'oh yeah i have a question on backstab'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Sandman says, 'did some testing.. and found 95 perc vs 100 perc is a difference between 10-20 hps per backstab.. thats nutty'

Sandman says, 'and the 95 perc was with 9 more damroll..'

Sandman says, 'and still did 10-20 less..'

Sandman says, 'basically.. why such the big difference for 5 perc?'

Robar says, 'so it pays to have 100 perc, just as it pays to have 100 mind?'

Sandman says to Robar, 'i thought prolly damroll would balance it but it didnt =p'

Sandman says, 'also.. sneak.. why does it with sneak on average less damage and more inconsistant damage? i thought sneak was supposed to up the damage on bs'

Kaige says, 'sounds like a bug.. report it?'

Sandman says, 'while sneaking i ranged from 50-80 damage.. without sneak i consistently hit around 84 damage'

Sandman says, 'aah ok'

Sandman says, 'i was sorta thinking maybe the sneak thing was the payoff for better para %?'

Sandman shrugs helplessly.

Sandman says, 'and does para check for sharp flags at all?'

Sandman says, 'if i remember correctly.. before with a wit you could para more with that than anything because it was sharp..'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'and if so.. is sharp a flag players can see?'

Sandman bombards them with 20 questions of one topic..

Kaige says, 'sharp?'

Sandman nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'we don't have a sharp flag'

Kaige chuckles politely.

Sandman says, 'ugh..'

Sandman says, 'thought there was a sharp flag on some weapons?'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'maybe i need to stop working with circle code..'

Kaige says, 'not sure what you're thinking of...'

Sandman peers at himself myopically.

Kaige says, 'not in terms of here.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Sandman.

Sandman says, 'i think im thinking of circle code ive been messing with =p'

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Sandman says, 'dont mind me =p'

Sandman says, 'but back to the para thing.. can you share at all how that is looked at for success?'

Kaige says, 'nope'

Sandman says, 'it would be cool if lighter weapons para'd more than oh say a certain spear =p'

Sandman hasnt para'd with his switchblade and 100 perc yet...

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Kaige says, 'I think it's an experiment thing too...'

Kaige says, 'but it sounds weird that you haven't yet.'

Sandman says, 'and silence paras like mad.. having a bit more damroll than me.. less perception.. and 1kg more on the weapon..'

Sandman nods his agreement with Kaige.

Sandman says, 'its frustrating in pk..'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Sandman says, 'backstab.. flee get para'd.. they get 3 more in.. backstab misses.. or hits.. they get para.. you die'

Kaige says, 'there's definite rewards to the explorer's who also pk'

Sandman says, 'explorers?'

Sandman says, 'as in finding new weapons items etc?'

Sandman will be checking out more weapons before too long..

Kaige says, 'or just different weapons and seeing they affect your abilities'

Sandman says, 'status?'

Sandman says, 'cuz im on the hunt for a parry bonus dagger atm =p i know if one is -parry bonus yall have to have something with a positive parry bonus =p'

LadyAce says, 'is 8:30 -- any last-minute questions before we close up zee shoppe?'

Sandman says, 'and if i could use the blinding dagger i would'

Sandman sniffles quietly.

Sandman says to Kae, 'make sure to put in some good weapons in inferno ;)'

Sandman winks suggestively at Kae.

Kae ignores everything, lost in her own little world.

Sandman snickers softly.

Kae only puts in BAD weapons.

Sandman says to Kae, 'q1? =p'

LadyAce cheers for Kae - huzzah!

Kae's middle name is NASTYBAD.

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'so explorers benefit.. are we able to see things with id armslore etc for status?'

Sandman says, 'im not sure if you can armslore a bolg and see its -parry..'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'maybe i should check it and not ask it =p'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says to Herbert, 'got a bolg on an alt? =p'

Herbert says to Sandman, 'no i dont use sissy weapons :p'

Sandman says to Herbert, 'bolg isnt a sissy weapon! katar is!'

Sandman nods to himself.

Sandman says, 'stupid major poison crap spitspit'

Herbert says, 'fear is for girls that cant para'

Hawklin chuckles politely.

Herbert ducks to the ground.

Sandman says to Herbert, 'i cant para with my switchblade and get wasted by a bolg.. so cant be too sissy'

Sandman sticks his tongue out at Herbert. =P

Sandman likes the repair daggers.. and the q4 dagger he wont name..


Next Imm App Round?

Herbert says, 'when is the next immortal application period?'

Kaige says, 'march 1st'

Herbert says, 'oooh thats not far off...'

Sandman says, 'ooh maybe i should try again..'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says to Kaige, 'have i been good since we last spoke a few years back?'

Kae ponders a pair of calf high leather boots's existence.

Sandman says to LadyAce, 'back actively nah but been around since i was last scorned'

Kae doesn't need them licked clean right now but thanks!

Herbert says, 'ive been good, i just dont know if ive been good enough'

Kaige says to Sandman, 'I haven't had you in my office lately. =)'

Kaige smiles at Herbert.

Hawklin says, 'im always good'

Hawklin beams delightedly.

Sandman says to LadyAce, 'like a year after my big uh.. talk.. then i took off for a bit'

Hawklin says, 'none of my characters have ever had a warning in 5-6 years of playing here'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'i was a bad boy when i was younger..'

Herbert says, 'ive been helping out, doing civil service type things for months, no warnings in a year.. id say thats PRETTY good for someone of my reputation'

Sandman says to Herbert, 'yeah me too hehe'

Kaige cheers for Hawklin - huzzah!

Sandman jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Herbert!

Sandman says, 'i was very very childish..'

Herbert says, 'minimal hissyfits, maximum bugreports!'

Herbert says to Sandman, 'not as childish as me :p'

Sandman says, 'i still like to ruffle feathers tho to try to stir up pk.. but ppl take it wrong =p'

Sandman says to Herbert, 'silence hates me atm =p'

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Sandman says to Herbert, 'i multied him for multing me and uh ya know how that goes..'

Herbert says, 'I have a few people who hate me, for rather mundane reasons but they do'

Herbert nods his agreement with Sandman.

Hawklin says, 'i find it best to never hate anyone'

Hawklin says, 'thats why i like kae'

Hawklin hugs Kae.

Hawklin panics, and attempts to flee.

Kae says, 'yeah, I hate everyone, I don't discriminate'

Herbert grins evilly at Kae.. wonder what he's thinking...

Hawklin snuggles up to Kae.


Areas in Progress?

Herbert says, 'my ultimate goal in life is to get Ptahs blessing for a Port of London expansion to make it the way it was planned'

Hawklin says, 'the one bad thing about living in tasmania is i miss every game thats run on here'

Kaige says to Herbert, 'Leila's been working on london proper again'

Herbert says, 'Whitechapel especially'

Sandman says, 'i would love to work on a roman coliseum like matrix was doing..'

Herbert cheers wildly!

Sandman says, 'i heard haley is doing her own take of it tho'

Kaige says, 'and haley was working on finishing that one up.'

Sandman nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'took what he started with.'

Herbert says to Kaige, 'make sure and do some whitechapel stuff, the ripper and opium dens!'

Kaige peers at her space bar.... stay in one place darnit!

Herbert says, 'I thought hayhay was workin on Rome?'

Sandman says, 'i also wouldnt mind doing a indus times detroit =p'

Kaige nods her agreement with Herbert.

Sandman says, 'need more gangsters and cars!'

Sandman nods to himself.

Herbert grins evilly at Sandman.. wonder what he's thinking...

Kae wants to do Stalingrad.

Herbert says, 'need more REAL gangsters..'

Kae drools contentedly.

Herbert says, 'pizza delivery kids dont count'

Sandman nods his agreement with Herbert.

Sandman says to Herbert, 'no doubt!'

LadyAce giggles at Herbert.

Kae wants to do Stalingrad, then port a rocket battery to SL.


Additional Topics Answered

This section is intended to address some of the things that come up repeatedly and also provide a place where players can submit questions via the feedback channel (Q&A) so questions can be logged when they're thought of and the answers reported back here.

Also, some of the builders will often have some feedback on suggestions and typos that get reported with some of their reasoning for why things are the way they are or won't be incorporated into the areas.


General Suggestions/Questions

o Why is it that everytime a big run is held, the whole mud lag? Is that a sign that we shouldn' shouldn't gather into a big group here on Legend?
o Why does Legend lag horribly when a group get together for big runs? Is there future update to fix this?
The reason the lag slows everyone down, is the amount of messages that it is having to push through our bandwidth limit. It just means that people need to think about how they are using bandwidth especially on large runs and make sure as many people are using MCCP compression as possible. HELP MCCP and HELP MCCLIENT explain how you can get this to work for you.
o Typing MOOD NORMAL only gives me a list of moods and doesnt reset mood
MOOD is the command to get the list of moods, just type the name of the mood to reset yours.
o Georg in kleinstat killed my greater salamander on sight. I entered ordered my charmy to attack but before he even was starting the fight, Georg killed my charmy.
It's possible he mistook it for someone else's charmy of that type who had recently been beating up on him.
o When i am stunned and people try to wake me they find it inpossible to wake me due to the fact that they cant seem to wake me instead of my dopple or angel. if they type 2.angel-eyes or 2.angel it doesnt work as well.
Players can always be referred to by with an abbreviation of their names to avoid targetting mobs. This is especially useful when dealing with mage who employs many charmies. You must always type out the full keyword of a mob to target it.
o When i type certain spell word combinations, I get no message at all (but i still managed to put it in my spellbook).
Yup. Because you've found a valid spell combination for an umimplemented spell (should be noted in that spell's helpfile) but you get credit for finding that spell combination at your current level, not your level after it's been implemented. The problem here is we set up code for these spells early on, but have not been able to get them implemented.
o I think we need a mudschool for the newbies on this mud. A place that you can go to like OOC, but rather typing MUDSCHOOL instead at a inn. It will only allow those that are below level 10 to enter and learn. I am very interested in helping making too, so if you like it, please contact me. The purpose of the school is to teach the basic mudding commands at LegendMUD, and it is better than a helpfile in my opinion because it goes in the order that we, the experience LegendMUD mudders, feel they should know. It won't give in-game information of course, but it will give them enough basics to explore Legend without having to ask the basic stuff like, how do I use my lantern, or what is that room that just killed me and now I lost all my eqs.
I like the idea of a tutorial, or more ways to gently teach new players about the things they will need in the world. However, I've never like the OOC aspect of a separate MUDSCHOOL set up. I'd rather see it incorporated into each of the hometowns. I've done some work toward this end in Arabia (especially), but please, send me (Kaige) any ideas, quests, suggestions, you have that would make this work within the hometowns.
