  1. I updated my Mac today to Catalina and EL stopped working.
  2. A quick suggestion for keeping track, make an inv list with the items you need to break. As you break them, remove them from the list. I do this for the more advanced items too, makes it easy to load up those that still need to be broken.
  3. Constructive Criticism of the Community

    I strongly suspect the root of your problem is that you entered the game in ch 6 and not in ch 1, which is the proper channel for TRULY NEW players and which generally has TRULY HELPFUL players in it. If you start out in ch 6, and show playing prowess but lack of knowledge, the obvious assumption is that you are a returnee who has come back after several years. Considering your post, this does not apply, but as a former moderator, I can assure you that you are a very very rare exception to that rule then. Channel 6 is the way it is because anyone who doesn't like the chat in there and still plays, and this includes the majority of players In know actually, are in a guild or other channel, so only the antisocial rabble are left in there. Your comment on scamming demonstrates you are indeed a new player, otherwise you would have realized this was an immediate consequence of the personality of the game owner, radu (entropy in forum). The game, and sadly the community in ch 6, mostly reflects his attitude and not that of the majority of the players. I have worked in ch 1 trying to welcome and educate new players for years, sat countless hours on IP trying to teach android players how to talk. I used to run contests and invasion for new players, only to find that most of them were alts taking advantage of my efforts to collect stuff, especially after the rule banning players to have their alts interact was removed. I eventually gave up on being a moderator, because of the nature of how the game is run, which is not fair but preferential; a few of radu's favorites, some of them whales, rule the game. The rest of us get muted or worse for speaking out mind, so we stopped giving feedback and trying to improve the game. In spite of this, I am still here, playing my char and sometimes even chatting in ch 6. I have made many friends, from all over the world. I am sorry you got burned like this, since EL, in spite of all its faults, is the only game of its kind I know that I can play on low end Win, Mac, Linux, and Android devices. It also has a very nice community, hidden away in guilds and some language-specific channels. I hope you have found a place.
  4. Pr0dcast Guest List

    Sounds like fun, interesting podcasts so far. Count me in.
  5. If it is blocking it because of the port used, then using a proxy can solve that. I can't think of any other reason why the provider would block it.
  6. Nice idea, might finally be able to dress fashionable again
  7. Bring back old Neno

    Cool, that would make hunting fun.
  8. Mini-Map

    You cannot change the color of the X in the client, I assume it would be possible if you made the change in the code and compiled your own client, but that would technically be a modified client and might require permission.
  9. Daily Cooldown Reducer fail rate.

    radu posted the code: Since I have no idea what my_rand does, it is impossible to know if time (or astrology) has any impact.
  10. I was planning to do a week of celebration with the day stones I had collected, but will no longer play and thus the event is cancelled. I am selling the following day stones and will add some other items later. Make an offer here or send a mercator message. I will not sell to the highest bidder if I don't like the offer. This is not an auction. If you need something particular, send me a message and I might have it and be willing to sell. Do not expect a quick response, busy IRL. 2 Day of Alfred Nobel Stone 1 Day of Robin Tell Stone 3 Day of Magic Stone 1 Day of Schools Stone 2 Day of Non Stop Stone 2 Joules Stone 2 Day of Reconstruction 3 Day of Stakhanov Stone 2 Day of Faster respawns Stone 1 Day of Tailoring
  11. Final Token Effects Possibilities

    The panther seems to me a good one for the lightmodifier. Another idea perhaps: More grief - Increase the chance to shred your clothes/armor (poofs on breakage)
  12. Ranging fix

  13. All hydro route to be PK?

    I don't like the idea to make the route to Hydro pk. While it might solve some inequalities, it makes it even harder for non-top chars to try and do the harvest or Novac quest on this map. When the route was designed, it was hard, due to monsters and pk, but not undoable. You could ask for help from a fighter or just try and go at some unpopulated hour. After rule 5 was removed, it became all but undoable, except for a few people. This has caused much frustration, even from people who only need/want to go there once. Why not give these people a solution that allows them to do it, without a lot of changes that affect way more than just the regular harvesters. The snake tokens are a nice addition, but a bit steep for a char who wants to do it one time, since it adds up to about 27k gc at current prices, IF you can get them, which requires owning a bot. I would like to refer to an earlier thread I made about hydro ring economics and suggest again to sell it in the shop, much easier solution and bound to bring in $$. http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=60280&p=589309 Wont make it more attractive than buying bars from NPC, since the latter is still cheaper, so it won't break the economy. With access to hydro, the economy might actually get a boost again, creating a market for s2e and ingredients
  14. All hydro route to be PK?

    It is simply not economical; anyone who could survive the trip can get more value from killing monsters and collecting drops. Even harvesters that make the s2e from scratch and thus have 'free' swords can earn more by just selling the coal, fe and iron. None of the new options have improved the economics, buying bars in Melinis is still more economical that any scheme of harvesting hydro ore yourself, except for muling on no drop day, then you just need infinite patience walking back from the UW.
  15. Alt rules

    Are alts supposed to be played, or can they used as a 'living' signpost?
