  1. *back on subject* EVTR will be multi-combat with the next client release, approved by radu. (And yeah, single/multi for a map can be changed on a server update, no client update necessary. My mind is just on getting that client update out soon. This particular change will come with the client, which will hopefully see a Summer release.)
  2. Alt rules

    There's time to get this into the official rules before the next client release. Once decided, Ais or radu make a final post with the official final wording and I'll make sure it gets in as rule 29... or as part of a current rule. Can lemme know your preference for that as well. ;-) ---- Only part I have an opinion on really is the spawn monitors. Glad to see those go. They were part of the reason I sent the new Joker spawns, hehe. (I remember there used to be one alt that sat almost 24/7 on the Melinis wall where Neno would spawn, seems to be gone now.)
  3. Char locked

    http://www.eternal-lands.com/view_user.php?user=susje "This player did nasty things and is locked"
  4. Tech you are right, but we have PV, Zira, Glac, and Airius. These maps have great potential for invasions and they are SC. PV is multi since 1.9.4 client release.
  5. Critters: "Trainable" aggressives on that map are very low-level (gargs, fem gobs), and are much more easily trained on other maps even if EVTR were a multi map. And they're decently spread out from what I can tell so multi training would be difficult. The Map: Map itself has nothing that would be affected if it were multi (no PK arenas or such). Future: There are no major changes to that map coming in 1.9.5, so no surprises. Conclusion: I personally think it would be fine to be multi. Just needs Radu's approval... I have to get higher approval to make map changes that heavily affect gameplay.
  6. Find Joker, Win a Brick

    At the time of this post, Joker is sitting on one of 200 new spawn locations. Being brand new locations, everyone is on equal footing. Be the first to find him, and win a rosto.* And be the first to know any of his new 200 locations. ;-) Your ONLY clues: 1- His current location is on a map that is part of C2. (Yes, I know where he is.) 2- He is NOT in a secret location, but it's not a spot people would accidentally run into him while doing other things. 3- There's Ice, Ice baby (and no, you don't have to deal with a stivy-alt, one question I'm getting asked too often) Remember that Joker spawn locations are secrets, so if you find him don't blurt out the loc in chat. Plus it'll be info only you know. *I tend to be afk or offline a lot, but I'll get it to you as quickly as possible. If I'm not online when he's found, make sure the Mercator Page shows the announcement that you found it, or at least one moderator can confirm it if mercator missed it (uncommon).
  7. Find Joker, Win a Brick

    And it was (finally) found. *game over*
  8. Find Joker, Win a Brick

    Wow, okay... This is definitely one of the more hard-to-find spots. Out of all the easier ones I picked, it had to go to this hard one first. One more clue then: 3- There's Ice, Ice baby... (and no, you don't have to deal with a stivy-alt, one question I'm getting asked too often)
  9. Find Joker, Win a Brick

    Still going... Just think, you'll be the only person to know any of the new Joker locations. Be the envy of... one or two people! I gotta admit, this was one of the handful of more difficult spots to find him. Most are a lot easier, hehe. And who knows, maybe you'll get the new rare reward from Joker that radu added (no, I dunno what that is).
  10. Android web page

    It's in your signature. Imageshack killed their free hosting, and replaced images with their ads. Change your signature to get rid of it.
  11. The possibility for a "C3"

    C3 "not happening" boils down to one simple thing: low player count. The count is too low even for the current number of maps, leading to an (M)MORPG where you could technically spend days playing and not necessarily even see another player in the game. More maps would just mean even more spreading out of players, which is not desired. Neither Radu nor Ace would approve adding new maps that would do that. Well, I can't speak for them, but I'd imagine... [Disclaimer: While I've been handling the map work these days, approval of new stuff is still required from others... Ace for maps, radu for spawn and other server-related things, roja for graphics, Ace/Roja for storyline continuity. What I post here is what I know based on prior discussions. I don't personally make final decisions of any kind, so that's not what this post is.]
  12. Engineering Quest Flynt gives no exp.

    The flag itself (in Thelinor going to PV) is the actual problem here, as it's a bit further into the map than it should be. Mines for that should be placed near the actual entrance, between the edge of the map and the rock that the flag is at. Best thing to remember is the flag is not the actual exit, but the path itself. (In 1.9.5, I already have that flag moved to be directly at the exit, so it'll be less confusing whenever that version is ready. Along with several other poorly placed flags on multiple maps. Maps sometimes need tweaks to be more relevant to newer things like this.)
  13. Settings won't save

    I know essentially nothing about Windows, but... Try renaming the el.cfg and el.ini files to something else. When you start the client after that it should force the client to create new files with the default settings. And if it can create them, it can change them. That'll mean changing your settings again, of course. (I can't begin to guess why the current files aren't updating though, don't know how Win permissions work.)
  14. Marking [non]PK areas

    [general] allow_combat: 1 allow_multicombat: 1 [/general] allow_combat 1 = PK full map (0 default) allow_multicombat 1 = map is multicombat (0 default, single combat)
  15. Particularly: needing someone aware of the changes to the Blender plugin system and may be able to rewrite some old (2.49-era) python import/export plugins for Blender into versions that will work in a modern Blender version (2.7). It's not enough just to "know Python", as I'm sure there's more than a few here who do, but to be familiar with the specifics of Blender's plugin system and how those need to be set up as that's where the biggest issues are. This is for EL, of course. While it's not absolutely necessary, it would be nice if we could get some old import/export Blender plugins for EL working on a current Blender build, as old Blender builds are getting more difficult to install. And unfortunately the original creator of the plugins is long gone. For now it's working, but getting these plugins to work in modern Blender would help "future-proof" them. PM me if you think you know enough about Blender and its current plugin system to give this a try.
  16. Android client, 4th release

    The night time is a particular issue in general. IP has lighting on it making it a bad map to night test on. The majority of maps don't have lighting except around very specific locations. Walking through woods areas in WS, and even Naralik in the middle of the night I could only walk around because I actually know the maps inside out, and still had to mostly use the "tab" map to walk. It's way too dark, hard to see anything even on a 10.1" tablet screen. I'd pull my hair out trying to use it on a phone screen. A default "brighter" night setting (without changing perception of course) is going to be an absolute necessity for this to be playable at all. Realizing just how map-dependent I am in the normal client, most walking is done using the tab map for long distances or the minimap for shorter ones, only clicking the ground to walk when close to a critter or harv or door or such. Android makes ground clicking more the norm, so it feels "slower". (Could also be I'm used to being speed-haxed, and I'm testing with a normal-speed alt on top of that.) Oh, and agree on Time Stamps. Things are generally working okay here though (on the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1" 2016 tablet), still been too busy IRL and not even worked on maps in a week, but should have time to more thoroughly test and continue map work by mid-week.
  17. Builds are now available for the new OpenSUSE Leap 42.2. Will update it soon to a more recent GIT build. 13.1 builds are discontinued (distro is no longer supported).
  18. Bug - can't move or can't harvest

    It does occur to me that both Neno walking on mines, and the Unicorn moving off of the dung it drops, would both be affected by this. (Assuming Neno teleporting doesn't reset him.)
  19. Bug - can't move or can't harvest

    Ah, so that's what happens to the critters on Test server (462 days uptime) that causes them to stop moving. It's actually a little creepy seeing them like that, hehe. (And surprising on C2 seeing some move, since Lenny is still actively killing and resetting them.)
  20. Def files

    Some random notes should anyone in the future be doing def files: 1- Use `back-ticks` around text lines, always. ex: map_name: `Isla Prima` and any text lines in use_area, location_info, etc. such as wrong_object_text: `Nothing happens.` Just lines that are supposed to be text input. Numbers don't need them. Text, particularly if it includes apostrophe's or "quotes" will not show correctly without the backticks. (And of course, don't put backticks in the text itself, ever.) 2- Use // double slashes at the start of every comment line. The server specifically reads those as comments and ignores there. It will generally treat any lines outside of markup as comments, but these will be more easily spotted and assure less chance the server will mangle your def file. (I'm told /* */ around several lines will also work, but if you're commenting that much you're doing something wrong.) 3- Don't spare on the comments. With few exceptions, there should be at least one comment above each markup entry explaining what the markup is for, especially on larger maps.
  21. Selain has mastered the ability to summon beastly clones of mortals and place them on the mortal realm to wreak havoc as a new randomly formed Boss Mob. And it would require no new graphical work. :-P How it works: A Beast Mortal is a randomly selected player (of any stats, newb or pro), given extreme stats: 1- Certain Attributes get multiplied by ? (to be determined and tweaked) 2- The Beast Mortal wears whatever gear the player happens to have on at the time it's created (added randomness) 3- The Beast Mortal is 1.5 times the size of the normal player <actor_scale>1.5</actor_scale> 4- The Beast Mortal gets additional stats based on the gods the normal player is worshipping 5- The Beast Mortal name is the name of the player with (Beast) after it, like Leonard's (alpha) 6- The Beast Mortal's HP is determined as a multiple of their max HP at the time of creation (incl. armor bonuses) 7- The Beast Mortal will have <ghost>yes</ghost> (as marked in xml files), which on a player char just makes them glow 8- The Beast Mortal may be given mana and essences to perform certain magics (magic god could allow for more or additional magic) - A Beast Mortal's drop is random, based on its stats. Better stats = better drops, obviously - The Mortal should be chosen from players who logged in during the past... two weeks? Month? This would reduce the bad feelings that may arise by selecting a player who is known to have passed away in real life, for example. (Would need to avoid Bot chars as well.) Beast Mortals are a different kind of boss mob, so even the weakest mortal's Beast version would be quite powerful. The big difference with normal mobs is that they can be different every time, depending on the random player chosen, and what they happen to be wearing at the time of their being chosen, or even if they've switched gods or leveled up since the last time they were chosen. Intentionally left blank: - Attribute multiplication - would need to be tweaked - Drops - While it would be boss-level drops, there would need to be "levels" of drops based on the Beast's stats, so could be very different between a "newbie player" Beast and a "top a/d player" Beast. If this can't be done directly, xml files could be made for the next update (using ex: beast_elf_male.xml for a normal playerav_elf_male.xml) and hopefully bluap could do any additional code if needed to turn what is normally a player char into a non-player entity. Below Example: TwistedSister doesn't dare take on the newbly-dressed Burn (Beast). ;-) (Image taken using my Test server setup, with ghost and actor_scale changes to the male elf xml.) Just pretend that "Burn" is a red name, heh.
  22. List last updated: Oct 30, 2016 NOTICE: This is a list of things that have been done for a possible 1.9.5 release of the client later only. There is currently no set date for a client update, this is only for informational purposes and to more easily have a list available when that day should come. THIS IS AN IN-PROGRESS LIST. More is planned, this is just what's been done (or in the case of maps, some still being worked on but will be done). Q: When will we have a 1.9.5 release? A: When it's deemed enough is done to warrant it. Not even radu can answer this question at this time. "No time soon" * Client updates and bug fixes are already available, if you are able to self-compile from the GIT repository. (Yes, you are allowed to use a GIT build in the game as it is official code.) * Client data (such as encyclopedia, graphics, readable books, etc.) that is not in the GIT code, as well as any map changes, will not be available until a new client is actually released.

Server-side Updates: - (none yet) Map Primary Updates: - A main C2 map has been extensively redone, with drastic changes to both the outside and its many insides, including new insides. (you'll notice it when you see it) * No further details will be provided, this is something for exploration - Another main C2 map has had parts of its externals redesigned, and several new additions added to the map (you'll notice it when you see it) * No further details will be provided, this is something for exploration - A "big change" to a part of Grubani Peninsula - A new and dangerous secret location, quite possibly the ultimate "why-didn't-it-exist-before" secret * No further details will be provided, it's a secret ;-) - Another new huge cave... serving as host to a spawn among other things - Glacmor - A small new inside area just for completion sake (the entrance is already visible on Glacmor, just not used) - Isla Prima - Change made so IP creatures will remain on IP. - Idaloran - Fenced-in area behind blacksmith (Horea NPC) made to be a Manu School area as it was designed to be. - For pear hunters, many more changes to "unhide" harvestable items hidden inside walls/caves, and as well items removed from no-harv spots where possible, increases possibility of finding pear on many frustrating maps (most of these changes are listed in minor fixes below). - EXTENSIVE work done on location information (info seen when clicking the compass). Much more detailed and correct info. - EXTENSIVE work done on entrances and map changes and such, so character aims more for where it's heading when an item is clicked. - Reduction of trees, bushes, and other various items in order to reduce lag/grue issues and/or increase ranging potential (without changing the map purpose or general design) on several maps. KJ, WVF, MM, Zirak, and more. - Cleanup of lighting on various maps as determined to have too much lighting. Very little noticeable effect to players, but reducing the lights where they're overdone also reduces lag.

Some other random excess brush under house removed. - Multiple fixes of random 2d ground pieces flickering throughout the map (decor only) - East side of the northern city wall had nothing underneath it, essentially hovering over water. Added some ground mounds and such that match how other walls are done (decor only) - FCW secret cave - Walkable tiles missing in FCW cave (already fixed on server, updated map available for download) - Gold Cave - walking slightly into cave walls in a couple places - fixed - Gold Cave - some ogre toes floating in the air, moved them against the wall where they were intended - Insides - A hole leading to another location in one of the houses was removed due to map changes made elsewhere * Port Anitora - Minerals on tables removed, replaced with jewelry (no-harv spot removed) * Portal Room - Very minor decor tweaking (decor only) * Sedicolis - 31,130 - fixed walk through rock - walk into rock @93,125 - fixed - Minor walkable tile adjusting in various places around the map - Lava on east side made into actual moving lava, not just an image of it (which should never be used) * South Redmoon - Could walk into tree @91,65 - fixed - Poor walkable tiling on side rocks in the 54,323 area west of the NRM exit - did best I could determine to fix * Thelinor - Removed walkable tiles where they shouldn't be around 191,194 - Caves - Removed a plate hidden in a wall, deemed not a secret or used, likely map editor mistake @57,110 (decor only) * Trassian - Dra Syn Caves - Manu School ("31" on unofficial maps) full of amber and various minerals that aren't relevant to manufacturing. Changed decor to be more manu-oriented.

  23. The Work Done for Possible 1.9.5 Client

    https://github.com/Sir-Odie/EL-Encyc/commits/master Looks like Odie has handled this. Achievements are being set up, should be available in 1.9.5. ---- Quite a few new inventory/storage images have been done as well. No more carrot for a vial mold, no more cabbage for a conglomerate, big chickens get their own feather instead of sharing hawk's... and you can guess what this is... Many others also getting unique images.
  24. Basically: Joker can appear randomly on any map, at any player-walkable location on the map. This could mean anything from easily appearing right next to a well-used storage, to more difficultly inside one of the lesser-known secrets. If not found after a certain amount of time, he'll change places. It would mean no more checking specific locations for him, and he'll possibly be found more often and by more players. Joker's drops may need to be tweaked based on how often (or not) he's found with such a change. I'm sure this was brought up before, likely years ago, but bringing it up now as circumstances are different... This wasn't an option in 1.9.3 or earlier versions, as the maps had tons of areas marked as walkable that weren't actually accessible to players, or were in locations that could be accessed but shouldn't be (areas under mountain pieces and such). I fixed pretty much all of that in 1.9.4 maps, and with new scripts that I along with Learner have written, the future 1.9.5 maps will get rid of any such spots still existing (almost none, and any current ones are technically reachable). Plus Joker's movement on not being found after a certain time will ensure it doesn't get stuck in some missed unreachable location. This can be easily done, btw. Learner has already provided code to EL for doing it on the server side (Joker works this way on his game). Joker would need to stay in place longer than it does there, since EL uses many more maps (all of C2) and may take longer to stumble on or hunt. The biggest thing with this is that Joker will no longer just be found in the ? number of locations he is currently found at. Plus if maps are changed (a few will be drastically different next update) there's no concern that a Joker spot no longer exists, it just goes by whatever walkable tiles are on the current maps. Noone (read: Acelon, who's quite busy IRL these days) would have to take the time to find and submit new locations for radu to have to take the time to add. And the concept of Joker was to be able to randomly run into him. This would actually fulfill that concept better than a list of specific locations. So it's pretty much a question of... would players prefer this over the current fixed-location Joker?
  25. Sweden is fine. Likely a temporary OVH issue. Those tend to affect only people in certain areas. Nothing anyone (even Radu) could do anything about, so the only thing you can do is wait it out and try later.
