  1. Mobs that can range players

    If i understood hows mobs are done in EL, it would require a fair amount of work to do something like this, since it's not really set up for much variance (i believe most mobs are files based on certain mob models with things tweaked and changed in the coding of them, along a bit of a hardcoded way, which is a bit less flexible). However, i do think it would be an interesting thing to do, it would require thinking in terms of mobs ability, as well as line of sight being probably an issue for invaded range mobs (since the horde will make them limited in terms). Only somewhat helped by the instant reaction AI can have. It'd probably take quite a lot of thinking in terms of making them balanced to be an additional challenge without being annoying to fight.
  2. Increase the slots in inv.

    bots is a negative, thing radu's $$ balance. No chance to be implemented. Too many bots anyway, and ruin player - player interactions. Very few useful things are still unstackable. Topic killed lol
  3. #allies_list

    Could always happen again; would be interesting to see what caused it oh and hi circe
  4. Increase the slots in inv.

    Depends really how many pots you use when you fight/PK I always found i used less in instance than invance (some HEs, My armour, bow, Some Srs, some Brs, SoP and all the arrows possible.) than invance (which i use more combat pots if I get them bloody 2 Feros and a WT boss encounter ) Can come in handy for some people. On the other hand we could restrict them and have inv management add strategy (if done Well it can be great fun fiddling with it for optimum solution for yourself)
  5. melee/magic distance.

    Hate how when doing range/magic its too far and your characted does naught to cope with it. Just makes me feel like the char i'm playing is incompotent. Just adds to the irritation of using these skills, especially if you set out to use them as an alternative to melee (not wise sadly, unless you go uber harm anything instantly to death with <300 hp mage). Though, this makes it nice for the ordinary players, creating less hassle, means them uber OP mages can kill easier too... Upside Downside Upside-Downside cake. mmmm
  6. Increase the slots in inv.

    Not a perk. What's with making everything a perk, or require earning, leaving out XX% of game from any update? Just make the tile within inv tiles from 6x6 to 7x7 (so from 36 tiles, to 49, for those who cant do basic maths), let everybody do it. Considering the amount of items ingame, it makes sense. Also adding armour is completely different thing, if its Vixens because thats a permanent buff to combat. Food is extending the top of an expendable point system. Levels is novac, yeah? different This is completely unrelated.
  7. Starlite, what chars have you had? I just need one more person i like and i might start playing (a little) butler endorses this guild in many colours.
  8. Boar updates

    Lovely speculation when i spent a year in 4060 range seeing people quitting and dropping off all around me. And the amount of newbies on IP i talked to, got on buddy list, gave stuff to and never saw again... If your bored, go sit at wraith for a month and see how many players popup (count out the alts), see how many talk, figure out how to get onto @@1 or stay for very long. Im not being cynical about this, was research i did when i was still very much in love with the game, though i hear most "newbs" aren't popping up on @@1 nowadays but @@6. Boss ideas nice, same kind of thing L's planning/got a single example of in his server, but still a really nice idea.
  9. Boar updates

    Like the idea, but need thing for players straight from creation, because most quit within half an hour of starting (so usually on IP) or before level 40 afterwards, so this might help the <40 group, but will do nothing to help any that are deterred at start, as well as: So if people at those levels don't even take advantage of the invance, why do more things for them? So I waste my time for something that will be unused? Besides, there are tons of quests that can be done at those levels. And the daily quests take the level into account.
  10. Susje only use you

    What was i saying about it being easy to circumvent? \o\/o/ People will always take advantage of the fact bots can't effectively prevent abuse and safeguarded at all really. It's always been possible to buy up and price hike everything, buy from one bot selling something cheaply and sell to another bot, or use them as another means of getting antisocial buyers money. All done by me and my friends, because its easy as crap to do. Bots are a very good thing in the toolkit for anybody to make an easy profit without much effort, both maliciously and ordinary, so tbh. If you don't want to use bots to screw others over or allow other people to screw you over, then stop paying for them 10/10 post, even thought you banned me from your bot for my name :<
  11. Susje only use you

    Enough proof for LeeDonaldson at least. You know, there's no trolls in unoff so it must automatically be true without any critical thinking. Very good point. Right now they are happily giving out free grammar lessons as well. Such well behaved, completely accurate and useful information is abundant on the Unoff.
  12. Susje only use you

    I love how people fell for coincidence. You should have realised it was too good to be true lool.
  13. Susje only use you

    different people hold different opinions, obviously yours conflict, and it wont be resolved. Also afaik most of the people posting in this thread have spent so much time on the game that it would be good for more people to get a life, as it would prevent both parties from getting so heated on this. #drama
  14. Buying Guild

    guild costs 30k to make from scratch... easier just doing that wouldnt it?
  15. Susje only use you

    This is an example of if it happens to me is terrible, what happens to others is acceptable and due to their own idiocy. this isnt directed at anybody, but apply it as you will. also am i banned from your bots susje?
  16. Quoting in forum

    +1 I originally thought my computer was screwing itself up again.
  17. new server

    I am incredibly impressed you kept on trying for 2 and a half hours. gratz
  18. Boar updates

    strategy vs boars... yay any sum stone you care to use. And i think SenZon just wanted the model to be a more realistic size. I dont see strategy in making a fairly easy mob who could only be farmed if you needed lots of meat require summoning so nobody kills it.
  19. new server

    It's in canada now? So its moved from where the French Server is to Other Life server. Coolbeans, might explain why it works better than it did before for me.
  20. new server

    lol If the server isn't in france anymore, i can only think it must be looking for the server where it used to be (im nub at internet protocol and how it works). If its early morning probably less traffic (tends to be evening when it happens alot), so you'll usually have better times in the early morning compared to late night. Also i know where your coming from, PC with clients installed died, and now im trying to fill addiction by checking the relevant forums far too much. GL in the next 48 ;p
  21. new server

    Zephlix, some game pages are hosted by Learner on his site (like rankings) so that may explain some away. Depending where the servers been moved to (afaik it was france, no idea where now) then it could be a geographical difference thats effecting your ping. Just thoughts, different path to server mins different traffic effecting you so maybe a proxy could be used to help you. I always found forum laggy as crap, but more so now than before, but i cant speak about the effect in game to much but when i logged on last ( i think a few days ago for a quick check since i was curious whether your DDoS was still going. )
  22. Susje only use you

    yeeeap i think it was you NC bot i bought off for MADALINUX, one near sto. good price for me i dont think i used your bots much though, definitely not with rAre. I wonder if i'll get banned on ~H~ bots. EDIT: I wonder why binsy hasnt reaccused or readdressed the "issue" with you yet
  23. Susje only use you

    Well, then I got something: buying items in my bot was a nuisance for him and he payed more than the other buyers in my bot. +1 point for me. And if the guy is a scammer, there is always the chance of him being scammed by the "friend" who buys the item. For me, banning is positive. It's not like getting the guy in the jail, but it's better than nothing (and much better than flaming) i never asked a specific pc but i mean i built up a customer base of antisocials and scammers, never scammed any of them because it was just so much more profitable to buy for them than to scam them. I think it usually ended up 5k-10k for big things like blue dragon armour, but better than hour on iron ore but i mean its usually big things like full blue set etc. I think the only thing he never trusted me with was maybe getting a thermy but it's just worth keeping in mind they are pretty easy to circumvent. Also i bet im now suddenly banned on many bots.
  24. i was trying to put a bit of ontopic on each of my posts. vinoveritas, my view is anything with a large benifit and no disadvantage makes it overpowered and i see this as OP. I know it costs alot to do, but i see that as making it even worse that it gives such a massive advantage to players who can afford to spend tonnes of gc (i mean it does limit it away from those who are good manuers but cant afford it). Please view the fact that im taking an overwhelmingly unpopular stance (i had very little faith it would be at all popular), but that has made people like Zicus think more about it, and provide a more interesting array ideas. So yw.
  25. Susje only use you

    tbh mudslinging like this tends to do fck all. Also banning people from bots is pointless. IIRC MADALINUX was banned from yours and i just bought it off your for him for a sizeable profit. j00 people who ban people from bots just make people like me more money and dont really stop the scammers using the bots. but yeah, disputes still the funniest part of the forum, people who know fck all about whats going (like me here) coming in an making irrelevant comments, like those on the Biker_boy thread against MOB guild. Just stupid people who are slagging off people they dont know. also too many bots in EL. just far far too many, massive eyesore and doesnt ecourage social behaviour (why trade to a person when you can to a bot?)
