  1. Bigger Channel Limit

    I do not think Radu cares to make any channel improvements whether they are easy or not. Player communication is not a problem unless it is not happening at all. If something new gets put in that needs a new channel then that is just one more choice you are going to have to make in channel choices. Think of it as role play. Your character decides who is benefiting or who is suffering based on your choice of channels and conversation. This can be a daily decision if your character is fickle or it can be set in stone if your character has certain goals. Mix it up, push it around and have fun with it. EL has survived this long with the system in place. Written in stone and quantifiable to the last bit is the kind of improvement you have to present to provide a reason for change. Only more channels would do that and that does not seem likely to happen so lets forget about channel changes shall we?
  2. Bigger Channel Limit

    This is a very good idea. We could add a mentoring channel where players can ask for help and chat as well. The channel description would say to PM if your question is missed in chat. This way newbies could get help and chat at the same time. There would be no flames and no harassment of newbies for asking 'stupid' questions. Mid-level players could ask questions too. The idea being that you are in the channel for one of two reasons: you need help or you want to give help. It should be easy by reading the chat to tell who to PM for help if your question gets missed in chat. This would really be a massive help to all players and if we had more channels open at once then players would not have to miss out on one part of the game to have this channel open. There are players now who have to choose between channels already. Give everyone a chance to enjoy access to more parts of the game and add this mentoring channel to help grow the community. Sounds helpful to me.
  3. That is a very important point to me. It looks like bad game mechanics or sloppy work by developers who do not care when you see something that makes no sense like the diamonds being different. Some persons see things like this as easy to fix bugs or programming errors and think the developers don't care about consistency or common sense within the game world. It is something with a simple fix that really drags down opinions of the game. This diamond thing is a perfect 'sound bite' for bashing the game in a review IMO.
  4. Favorite Game Of the Moment

    Civilization V. Absolutely awesome game!! TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  5. lack of resepect!

    I just came back and the players who are still here seem to be the ones who respect others the most. I don't think it can be that bad but I am willing to listen if you have a coherent argument. TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  6. Repairable Dragon Armor

    I voted the same way SinS did. Getting repairs started as part of skills is more important than how often you need to repair something. TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  7. Teh_Master

    Great work Dogbreath. Any chance you can have it post special days? Don't know if they are posted on another website or not. I know it can be emailed but a website would be better. TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  8. City building

    Well 2010 is almost here. I would suggest that there is only one amount to contribute and therefore a set number of players to start a city. This would truly make everyone equal. One person would hold the money but elections for positions would happen directly before the city was purchased so that no position would ever be given for any reason other than public support for the person in question. Equality is what makes this different than being a guild so equality has to be maintained. The rest of it I think we should wait on making suggestions for until we are asked for them.

  9. NMT idea

    I am guessing the topic is done but if not then making the ingredients to repair a damaged NMT is two damaged NMTs then you keep your price up and get them out of game and items are still protected. No need to do anything else. No one has to hoard them. All you have to have is 2 at a time. People who want to risk having the advantages and letting them break can do that too. This idea would mean you get 3 NMT for the price of 2 and with the low brake rate it should take a while to get 2 NMT into a degraded state. Still breakable but has the benefit if you are willing to risk it and you can repair it by using another one until it breaks too. Yes that does mean you loose your NMT and loose 2 to get one back but then you can start again. Being able to just repair the same one over and over is great but what will the formula be and if the object is to get them out of game so drops can increase then repairing the same one over and over doesn't help. This is the third time Entropy has asked about NMT breaking. Hope it is the charm instead of the straw breaking the horse's back. TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  10. Depletable resources and multiplaying

    The idea and reasoning behind both the depletable resources and legal multiplay are both rock solid. I support these ideas 100%. There is almost no harm done with implementing them. Yes some closer to storage harvestables will be gone when you log in but I already know 2 spots for very nearly every in game item to storage. To top it off you can go just make stuff on site if they have a site left for you. Lots of those have been removed. You can harvest something else to storage. No item takes only one thing to make and since the items are depletable you never have enough of anything on hand. This is good for EL and good for radu and roja. Please support these ideas. That have shown it is fair and a other than guilds jumping on resources I don't see any possible problems. That problem though is actually kind of a good thing. It makes more player interaction. The whole idea creates more player interaction. Great job team. I hope to see these done some day. TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  11. About TSP changes

    True sight potions were useful for money and for leveling. I know of at least 4 NMT cloaks that were paid for by TS potions. They took a long time to harvest for but with help from guildies and friends a player could level their potions for quite some time on it. My problem with any newbie item is that you don't have enough newbies to make the potions worth making. They just don't kill enough deer and even if they did they wouldn't pick up the antlers as they don't stack and weigh a lot. The best idea I have seen since I started EL 4 years ago is the newbie storage Zamirah suggested. All of the bones and furs from IP would actually be used. Getting started in the game would be fast tracked. Newbies would have plenty of money selling furs, bones, and raw meat to players and they would get to interact with the higher level players while doing it. This would make the game far more attractive to new players and it would get them into the community a whole lot faster. They could feel like a part of the economy after just a few days or a week and that would encourage them to get others to join even without having played for a while yet. Even if the newbie storage took only animal parts it would be worth it. Medium to high level players should never, ever have to depend on newbies for stuff they need. Newbies don't know enough about the game to be that integral to it. The endless bag spam on IP shows that every day. Newbie storage would give new players a way to make money and would not massively cut the supply lines for items needed by players who are in there 50s or higher in their skills. Give formulas for items you can make in your 20s and 30s ings that newbies can supply. Then their customer base will be nearby instead of in C2 or in maps that would instantly kill the newbies. It should even build a player to player market base that could go all the way to the top eventually and everyone can stop complaining about bots. lol TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  12. Would you like to have more quests available in game?

    The barn door has closed and the horse has already left. The quests already in game give advantages that can be obtained in no other way. Cheap wine and leather, god quests, and the skills quests that give rewards of free stuff. You cannot get these benefits by yourself in any other way. The point of quests in this game are specifically to give advantages that are not had by players who do not do them. The chance this will change is near nonexistent considering all of the quests they already approved under the same system. I love quests. I love getting benefits that other players who don't want to take the time and effort don't have. I love the stories and interactivity of quests. I started D&D when it first came out in the Blue Box a very long time ago. I have been RPGing ever since. Teach me how to code the quests and I will code every single one of them for you. I will do it quickly too. :ninja smiley: lol TirunCollimdus GM of PATH
  13. Is my character locked?

    I always do my best at everything I do. I will do my best to try to please everyone all of the time. Perfection is unfortunately not a mortal concept so I can't promise I will succeed. Hope that is good enough. TirunCollimdus
  14. Is my character locked?

    Yes I understand that only TirunCollimdus will be returned to me. The people who don't like me can put me on ignore. If someone does not like me and decides to let me know that they don't then I will put them on ignore. What I say to my friends is my own business however and I won't censor myself in conversations with them. The #ignore command is our friend. I will spend a lot less time arguing and a lot more time playing that way and that suits me just fine. Trying not to irritate anyone is not possible. You can't please all the people all the time. You agree with that don't you Entropy? I will just avoid any and all direct confrontations. That is enough isn't it? TirunColldimdus
  15. Is my character locked?

    If unbanned I fully intend to deal with the problems myself. I would not have it any other way. Some people need to be educated and I am ready to start classes. I don't let lies and slander stand and I never quit. No one is going to get away with harassing me or mine especially when it is done unjustly. I don't need the mods to help me deal with attacks against me as I have proven more than once in the past. This just might be the last time I need to prove that attacking my character is not worth the results after all is said and done. I blew the RICH guild out on the forum. I blew Ateh and his entire bunch of buddies out on the unofficial forums. I will not have any troubles dealing with this new problem. The truth will out. It shall set you free. The people who have chosen to side against me are the ones who have a problem. They wanted it to get ugly so it will. That is not my doing. I didn't start this fight but I will finish it and I will do that without the help of any mods or anyone else for that matter. I don't want help and I don't need it, so you don't have to worry about me asking for it. TirunCollimdus
