Re: Tick bug

The reason the tick is about 60.5 seconds instead of a round 60 is likely because of the way timeslicing is implemented. There's a heartbeat about every 250 ms, and 240 of them per tick, every time. The reason some ticks are longer than others is likely due to the way that the mud pauses between &qu...

Re: Maxcon

+8 maxcon is equal to +16.7 hp for humans in the average case. 17hp on eyewear isn't very rare, it's in the ballpark of best in slot. I wouldn't characterize +8 maxcon on eyewear is overpowered.

I was looking at the other side of the same situation. 21 hp has the same impact as 10 maxcon for humans. How much gear has 21 hp (or more)? How much gear has 10 maxcon (or more)? Instead of making each point of maxcon more important (code changes), the points could be made more frequent (area chang...

When I get bored, I solve obtuse problems that I make up myself.

Rolling for stats isn't that hard, it just takes a well written autoroller and patience.
