The April 23, 2009 Q and A Session
Sandra says, 'not right now :/ Pets is something we would love to do though. But we don't have the code support for it atm'
Kezia raises her hand.
Keir raises his hand.
Sandra points at Kezia.
Kezia says, 'Just curious, I know nothing about code at all, but what if the Familiar code was tweaked, or is tweaking not what goes on?'
Geraden says, 'No rush... my residences would be full if you did'
Kezia says, 'for pets, I mean'
Kezia says, 'but rather than a spell, one has to do a quest or something?'
Sandra says, 'its kind of like familiars on steroids. What you see familiars do is mostly done in building acts. Pets need code support'
Keir says, 'i went to svart a while back with my other druid and dont remember having the problems with healing myself that im having now, is that something new for svart or am i just misremembering?'
Sandra says, 'you augment?'
Sandra says, 'or aid'
Keir says, 'augment'
Maryann applauds Keir's quick thinking and good judgment.
Sandra says, 'Yea, it's a bug that Nestor is working on fixing'
Keir says, 'phew'
Sandra says, 'I believe you can currently get around it by tacking 'self' at the end'
Keir says, 'cause its hard enough with a druid to run svart, now when you have this problem where you cant even make a poultice to heal yourself *twitch*'
Sandra says, 'make poultice garlic self, etc'
Maryann says, 'Well, I was jus wondering if anyone's tried to work on the housing bug in Malta yet. I don't mind waiting, but I'm curious.'
Keir says, 'what bug?'
Sandra says, 'oh, we discussed it and then um, I forgot'
Maryann goes EEK! in distress.
Sandra says to Carnegie, 'What did we decide?'
Keir comforts Sandra.
Carnegie says, 'Coding issue with how it's handled, I believe?'
Sandra says, 'yea its a code problem'
Caedmon says, 'Ooo, ooo! I have a question.'
Carnegie says to Sandra, 'Something about pluralizing housing or something.' Caedmon giggles.
Caedmon looks happy.
Maryann says, 'So do I take it to mean that's not going to be fixed, or isn't fixable?'
Sandra says, 'it will be fixed, promise. In fact, I'll fix it right now'
Sandra says to Maryann, 'Ok the housing should be fixed when we reboot this weekend.'
Caedmon says, 'Ok. I know you guys added Rome last year, so I'm wondering...will there be new areas added in the future?'
Carnegie says, 'very much yes'
Caedmon says, 'Any areas in development?'
Carnegie says, 'There are about 4 or 5 under development right now... some will arrive sooner than later'
Sandra says, 'yes, we try to add a couple of areas a year. doesn't always work out that way :)'
Caedmon nods solemnly.
Maryann says, 'Voltz seems to think there's a Q&A channel, and asked me to ask you guys about it. He doesn't know how to turn it on.'
Sandra says, 'there is actually one'
Sandra says, 'but it isn't something that we answer on the channel. It gets logged for us'
Sandra says, 'it's also called the feedback channel'
Maryann says, 'Ah, okay. So it's just for imms, then?'
Sandra nods solemnly.
Sandra says, 'if we get questions on it, we usually mudmail the answer to the person'
Maryann says, 'Alrighty. Thanks.'
