Re: Illarion Open Source Initiative

Just imagine how a player will feel who did FOIG a hard problem/quest but is treated like he just read it in the code? Well, if you want to brag about how cool and smart you are because you just solved that riddle, well, this won't work anymore then, there you are right. However the dedicated playe...

Re: Illarion Open Source Initiative

May I add something: There are thousands of games out there with cheat codes and full walkthroughs available. Yet dedicated players try to solve everything on their own first and only use these help texts if they get stuck. And to be honest: every game designer publishes games exactly for those dedi...

Re: Conflict?

The current setting encourages to cause trouble at other factions, not in your own faction. Mind that for your future plans. This way you will still have a place to go and maybe cause even war between factions.

"Screw you, we're developers developing" attitude here is a problem Whoa, that's just wrong. I recommend to mind your own advices: Read. Consider. Think.

Re: 5 things I'd like to see

I think you misunderstood Estralis. You are always welcome to make suggestions. But if you want them to be done in the near future, you should make them the right way: more details, create a task in Mantis. This topic will be lost in the forums. I have now read your suggestions, but I have nothing t...

Re: Brainstorming on Noobia

Expanding the square range of an NPCs response outside of noobia will only serve to annoy the players. Maybe expanding it in noobia is a good idea though. ... which will probably lead to confused newbies once they left noobia. However one could expand the range for the NPCs just to say something li...

Re: Do npc's learn?

For technical correctness, one should mention that NPCs can't attack or be attacked, so they can't gain any fighting skill by fighting. You actually speak of monsters, as Estralis implicitly pointed out.

Re: Temple

Just as food for thought: When I was active, I once played a character that had to oppose the temple guys (due to his guild membership). So there was this moment my char met a temple member.

The avatar with the items is just mirrored. This reduces the needed graphics by the factor 2, I think. It's a reasonable step in my opinion.

Estralis, who has a good insight in this subject, has already proposed an actually simple-to-implement solution which I am strongly in favour of.

Actually, the loss on death is alright: not too much but it still hurts enough so one wants to avoid it.

Illarion is full of randomness. You can find it everywhere. But it is all in moderation, such that higher skill still results in better results. And I think this should stay as it is.

The diet system is exactly what I based my idea on ;) We have seen there are clear evolution: from malus-bonus to bonus-only. This is state of the art and it is good. A cap is of course needed.

"respawn time" should not be increased. It's boring to be a ghost. Penalties are frustating. So... try the opposite: a bonus for all those who haven't died for a long time. When ghosted, this bonus is set to null again.

But that will be gone with the VBU, as the resurrection is handled in another way.
