  1. Powerhungry bug

    Ive had powerhungry for a couple weeks and I just noticed that I use more than 3 food per minute while harvesting some items. Ive tested this on fruit and it works fine, 3 food per minute. But when I mine coal or Iron ore my food level will drop one point randomly during the middle of a minute, then it will drop another 3 points at the end of the minute. Sometimes I lose a total of 5 food per minute. I havent tested this on other harvestables yet. Maybe someone else with powerhungry can try this out to confirm?
  2. Powerhungry bug

    I was told by Tyralax to post it here, so apparently he hadnt heard of it. And I checked the first page of this section of the forums and it hasnt been posted reciently. So if it has been posted somewhere before, people dont know about this bug and its been around for a while withough being fixed or commented on. Could you maybe give the title of the previous post reguarding this "feature"?
  3. Please Unlock my IP

    Surley you wouldnt intentionaly ban a saint? No seriously my IP is banned for some reason or another. I havent played since Saturday afternoon and I come back today and I cant log on. Help please.
  4. Please Unlock my IP

    Sorry for the double post, but you can close this topic I think. While I still see a red warning message upon starting up the client saying my IP is banned, I am able to log on and play.
  5. RICH is recruiting

    Lol Nice.
  6. RICH is recruiting

    No, he just drops in from time to time to check in on the game. I see some dramatic improvments in the past 9-10 months since I have played the game. Hmmm, I might just have to give the "ole gal" another try. Look for me soon.
  7. RICH is recruiting

    Please interview me to join the ilustrious guild RICH!
  8. Americans And Their Dates

    I didnt take the time to read the whole thread and I stopped at the post I quoted. The United States military has used DD/MM/YYYY (and DD/MON/YYYY)for more than 50 years. So, I guess its not the Americans you have a complaint with, just the software compainies that dominate the planet. *EDIT* ack Ive read more of the topic and I see my point was already made. But in all fairness since Internet was invented in United States Universities then I guess they had the first say in how the dating system was and everyone that didnt follow them was actually breaking off the beaten path and comming up with their own system.

  10. logging into the forums...

    I use Netscape 7, and now Netscape 8 and I have the same problem. I have to log in EVERYTIME i visite the forums. I cant make it rember me. This is the only forums I have this problem with, all others remember me fine. This is the only site I have to log in EVERYTIME i visit it. I guess its comforting to know Im not the only one. *edit* I bookmark www.eternal-lands.com page then click on the forums link to come here. Maybe that is the problem. If I change my bookmark to the forums directly it could remember me somehow.
  11. Complaints About Rich

    So by the rules of the game and by your own admitions, its actually against the rules to lure us "n00bs" into PK and kill us. Isnt it against the rules to trick n00bs?
  12. Complaints About Rich

    Ok most of your post I know nothing about as it probably happened before I was around (recruiting you) or I had nothing to do with it (your IP ban our forums, which Im sure you deserved for either spamming or acting like a jerk when you were a guest) But I can definatly say that most of the guild does NOT want war. And your statement ((anyone who wants war (most of the guild) gets kicked from rich)) by definanition is completly ignorant and without thought. Think, if we kicked everyone that wanted war, AND by your statment that includes most of the guild, then we wouldnt have many members, would we? Like I said, ignorant and without thought. I would bet you havent even met HALF our members. And I mean more than just seeing us walk by. So since we all know you havent taken a poll from all the members that suggests most of us want war, how can you assume such things? Usually the only people that want to fight other guilds are new members who think that by joining the largest guild they will have power in our numbers. We have posted rules for the guild and one of them is that we dont fight other guilds. And yes, if you have a problem with that rule, we will likely remove you from the guild so you can go and PK to your hearts content. We certainly arent going to force someone to play the game in a way they dont want to. If they want to PK then our guild isnt for them. We are merchant guild that focus' on making things, though we have members that span every profession the game has to offer. And as for your asshole statement, well thats your opinion. I dont think any of the members are assholes, nor do I think you are one as I havent met you ingame, and I think this is the first time I have responded to a post of yours. I do think that you (and many others) are holding a grudge against this guild for actions that were done by members that arent in the guild anymore. And other than removing the problem elements there isnt anything more we can do. Thats part of the reason for this thread, to see just what peoples greviances are with our guild and to bring about change where possible. To ask that the guild be disbanded because you hold some idiotic grudge for actions that happened months ago by people that are no longer a part of the guild, is beyond sophmoric. Please note, Im not attacking you in any way... just your opinions and sugestions. Now is there anyone with any SERIOUS compaints or sugestions?
  13. Solos Extreme Bagjumper

    Name one... thats right, you cant. They arent in the guild anymore. So you can give up that reason for not liking RICH. You are probably like most others, you are jumping on the bandwagon because a couple of older players (and a newbhelper) still hold some idiotic grudge against people they have never interacted with, simply because they are a part of a guild with a less than perfect past.
  14. Jacoblin.....uber B*****d

    I was doing something similar yesterday and jackoblin jumped my bag with coal also. This guy will steal anything just to be stealing it. He stole what would have taken him about 2 minutes to harvest.

    Link to a sample of his behavior.
  16. Afk Auto-boot

    I notice this a lot. People will go AFK for hours on end... in some cases a whole 24 hours or more. I constantly see people in the EXACT same place they were hours or even a day before. These are not bots we are talking about and Im sure there would be some exception to the rule for them. Im suggesting that if you go AFK for say, an hour, you should get automaticly disconnected from the server. I suggest this for two reasons: 1. Why would you sit AFK for multiple hours? Once you run out of food you arent researching anymore. That takes what... 40 minutes? 2. The people who are AFK are still connected to the games server which does use bandwidth which ultimatly slows the game for everyone else. Granted its not much, but if you have 50 people all AFK; then thats 50 other people that are having a laggy game and cant enjoy the game fully. Maybe Im missing something here that is a good reason for these people to AFK for days at a time? Please vote in the poll and if you have something constructive to offer, pease do.
  17. *sad*

    why do you need the right mouse button? couldnt you just click on the icon at the bottom?
  18. Afk Auto-boot

    yeah that perk is completly worthless in my opinion... that is untill you read all the books.
  19. Afk Auto-boot

    Dont get me wrong.. I wasnt accusing anyone of Macroing at all. I just said that I assume that many of the people I see are doing that. Simple misunderstanding .. thats all. You are right you dont have to offer any reasons... but I did ask that if there was something I was missing for people to please let me know. That way I could make an informed opinion.. instead of just assuming people are afking for no reason. Otherwise you have no grounds for your argument and it appears like you are just blindly defending your opinion for no reason. Perhaps my solution isnt the best one out there? There have been two other solutions mentioned here that have atleast allowed me to think of the AFK issue differently. And an update... Solodus just gave me a reason for Mods to be on to get logs and I can certainly see where their logs are important.
  20. Afk Auto-boot

    We arent talking about emergencies here... well I guess we are if the emergency takes longer than an hour. And how is it punishing anyone for making them log back in? If anything its you punishing the other players by being on and not interacting or actually doing anything, making others game suffer. It doesnt really matter how "isolated" you are... you are still connected to the server. As pointed out before you are still using bandwidth that you dont pay for. Its only courteous to other players (not to mention the people that pay the bill every month for the bandwidth) that you log off to conserve bandwidth. Besides, people arent going afk in isolated places. Otherswise I wouldnt be noticing at them all the time. You say there are many reasons for someone to go afk, but you only offer one (chatlogs). And its the best (only) reason Ive heard. Some sugestions are for you to have a friend who is actually playing email you a copy of the chatlog. That way you still get what you want and the rest of the community doesnt have to suffer for anyones selfishness. You have GOT to be kidding. You are leaving the game afk and you are still worried about being able to SEE your character? You arent even there!! What do you want to see? You want to see your character just sitting there "isolated" with absoultly nothing going on around at all? That seems lik you are just reaching for excuses now. I actually like the limbo idea, but it would require much more work on the developers end than just a time out disconnect. Plus it doesnt really solve the problem of these people slowing the game down because they are still connected. It may not seem like you are hurting the game at all. And at this point in the game with the relativly small user base you are generally right. But when this game, say doubles the active users, and there are 100 or so people going afk it will be very noticeable to the people trying to actually play. The only other reason I can imagine someone actually being away from their computer and still having the game running is for Macroing. Which is what I naturally assume many people I see are doing. But I guess thats a little different subject.
  21. Afk Auto-boot

    yeah Im saving my vote until I see what people have to say about it. Right now Im leaning towards yes, but if someone brings up somthing I didnt know... I may change my opinion.
  22. Afk Auto-boot

    Ok so the only pro is to save bandwidth... so where is the con? Also, it does cause lag from FPS going down with extra people on the screen... esp in storage.
  23. Afk Auto-boot

    Thats not a bad idea either.... though I dont PK so thats probably why I didnt think of it.
  24. Death Message

    Hmm.. I like this idea too. I have died a couple times and had a nice person return my stuff, but later I realized they "forgot" to return a couple items.
  25. Rich Player List

    I think this is a good idea as it will solve the debate over who the richest class of player is: Fighters, Manufactures, etc. If everyone will be able to clearly see who the top 50 or so richest are, then it wont be hard to check those peoples stats and see once and for all who is the richest class and how much richer they are than other classes.
