Re: Shooing Off unattended mounts

I'd really only consider adding something like this if it made the mount MIA for an hour before it eventually wound up to the stable, in addition to the usual 150 riln "We found your lost mount" fee. I kinda feel like people wouldn't want to wait an hour for their mounts to become available again af...

Re: What's with all the frequent lag spikes lately?

Issue has a slight band-aid on it right now, referencing the below development log entry: * Mounts will now persist in the game world upon character logout/disconnect. Characters will log back in the standing position and will need to re-mount, unless their mount has been auto-stabled. This is a tem...

Re: What's with all the frequent lag spikes lately?

Upon further investigation, it looks like the majority of the character loading time has to do with mounts, I'd like to urge anyone concerned about causing lag to please stable their mounts before they log off rather than logging off while mounted. Also, do not hoard items in your saddlebags, they'r...

Re: What's with all the frequent lag spikes lately?

After some testing, it appears that it takes approximately 6 seconds for the login system to run from the time someone enters the login command to the time they are able to play. As CLOK is not a multi-threaded application, this blocks everything else while it is running. As Noctere said, we've got ...

Patreon is back, but different

I have put much thought into the Patreon program and taking donations for CLOK over the past 8 months since I've suspended my Patreon page. I've had many people come to me and express interest in continuing to support CLOK, asking me why I'd do such a bone-headed thing as quit taking donations, and ...

Good morning, I've recently re-activated CLOKs Patreon page.

Everburning braziers

It has come to my attention that there was a seasonal merchant selling large black wrought-iron braziers and large blackened bronze braziers that function as everlasting heat and light sources, and that many of these were placed in various hunting areas, the wilderness, and player mines.

Re: BUGCHECK and bug status types

It's still character based, as we're trying to avoid any information that could give the GM team a clear picture of who owns what account. We don't necessarily like knowing who everyone's alts are. Yay, privacy.

FYI, as the new account system gets rolled out later this spring, nicknames as we know it will be going away. You will have a single OOC persona to identify as. When you play, you will have the choice of being represented in OOC communication by either a guest nickname, your account nickname, or you...

I'm pretty set on the real time thing. If you don't play a character for 10 real life years, then I'd imagine you weren't that attached to it in the first place.

Re: Introduction system

It is something I want, but the amount of work to implement it is not feasible at this time.

Perhaps in the distant future when a few of the more priority code rewrites (item, character, room, and critter handling) are done.

Re: THINK and RITUAL

Basically nothing that would imply giving you a wound, without actually giving you a wound.

If you're going to act out stabbing yourself in the hand, you should be taking energy loss and damage in your hand. If you're not, then you're bypassing mechanics by doing it.
