EQ changes.

Postby Tanji Smanji » Wed Sep 03, 2003 9:16 pm

Just wanted to post and see about getting some info on the status of the EQ changes. Most people read the new entry on the 17th of last month and assumed they would be patched in a few days. It's now over 2 weeks later and nothing. In the spirit of keeping us informed how bout some info?


Love,

I noticed that my tiny silver rings now are ac 3 and +1 hit, but they also give me 20 hit points. is that normal?

We can't just get an update from the imms on this? We have to go to a player run site to find out things? I'm totally fine with there being problems or needing code/ect to get things in but tell us something. You put an entry into the news that this stuff will be in very soon and then thats it, no one answers petitions on it, or they bitch at you for asking. Tell us whats going on so we know. It's not a hard thing to understand. I still believe a lot of overall bitching would be reduced by simply letting the players know whats goin on.

Equipment changes will go in once code patch to move them is complete.

Three weeks to analyze and restat all the equipment in the mud? Three months would be a lot closer to the time needed, it seems.

I guess I missed them saying they finished. I would have sworn they were still working on some of it. Either way, they'll get it done when they get it done... expecting volunteers to work harder and faster for you just because you expect them to seems kind of silly. Bumps in the road just happen sometimes... for all of us.

Oh, and which would you prefer first, eq changes or a secure server to host Sojourn so it won't end up going down for an extended period of time?

EQ changes for sure. When they DO come in, everyone is going to be sitting around and ID'ing piles of stuff for two weeks anyway. Why not put the changes in ASAP and we can all use ALOT less bandwidth ID'ing eq for two weeks while the mud is on someone's cable modem? After we're done IDing stuff hopefully things will have been all fixed up! =)

I just want them in because so many people are on idle atm till they're in. No one knows whats changing so most people aren't willing to do much. I want it in and overwith so things can get back to normal (heh).

Definately the EQ changes. If they go in before any hosting hiatus, things will seem different when the mud gets up and running again and give some of us getting more and more jaded more reasons to endure the wait. I'm sure some of us would continue discussing and analyzing the changes even during the downtime, which would help keep interest going. As is, a prolonged downtime is just going to make me indulge in the new game release season that comes at the beginning of autumn.

me too!

Why? Because then the muds will share the eq changes (although maybe the eq changes are a reason (other than $) why the split is happening....)

Lessee... if the eq changes are already finished in the test mud, then both games would have them after the split, but if one of the staff has to code a special patch of some kind in order to implement them into the playing mud, then they might be holding off to make sure they don't end up doing any work for their competition. Wasn't there supposed to be some special code for moving the eq changes over?

It's this amazing bit of code called the "copy" command. The syntax works sort of like this: cp *.zon \sojourn\main\lib\world\zon\. or something along those lines depending on your directory structure. Very complicated.

Well that's what I thought, but I'd swear I read in one of these threads that it was just waiting on some special code to help it transfer over.

That is correct. I read that as well, in multiple places. Here are two quotes:

Yea, some of you guys might not remember, but not all the flags etc update on items when you change em.

A little while back some god was shouting about people with Magebanes sending them tells... apparently that was because the magebanes got !drop and some of the old ones didn't get updated, so they had to be manually swapped.

Now multiply that by the many thousands of items in the game.
