Changes on Ansalon MUD!

Changes made to Ansalon during 2017.

Sender Zivilyn Date Thu Jun 22 18:26:57 2017 Subject Website Update the website, putting Brim's maps up as well. New Theme (4.8 wordpress update nuked our menus). Thoughts on the site welcome :) Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Mon Jul 3 19:06:53 2017 Subject Magic Missile, Lightning bolt tweaks Magic missile can have 2/3 missles if above 95% in the spell (bmages got a tiny bump, like 5-10 damage per shot). Lightning bolt has had a 2nd chance for an additional bolt, this goes up now if you have it above 95 also. The second bolt is a biiiiitch, and will cause 3rd degree scorching :P. - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Wed Jul 5 12:46:00 2017 Subject Three Moons - Signs The Three Moons Transport Company now has signs in the corridors so that it's easier to locate the correct portals. There are also clickable links for the exits for those who use MXP links. - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Fri Jul 7 17:15:41 2017 Subject Quaf Quaf & Fireproof Quaf a potion, used to lag like hell. Now only if you're violent. If you've gotten improved fireproof, you're way more likely now to permanently fireproof things (it basically rolls and unless you over/equal to your skill, it will be permanent. - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Fri Jul 14 17:00:09 2017~ Subject SPELL COMPONENTS They were like litter, _everywhere_. I've dropped back the frequency of them so it's not so spammy. Let me know if it seems 'too rare' now (it's more than figurines still a little). - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Fri Jul 21 17:42:33 2017~ Subject PET CORPSES Great idea Larian, no idea why we didn't do that ages ago. Pet corpses will now make an EQ Yardsale like player corpses, if the pet is carrying any equipment. This is only for pets, not charmies, but it should help with the hours of re-equipping a pet if you lose one. Find it's pile, get it back. - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Fri Aug 4 13:11:46 2017~ Subject Level 1 Note Posting Great idea, the idea was that new chars didn't come in spamming 'join our game' or 'this mud suxors' etc. But... we don't have that problem in this day and age. So... Characters can post notes after playing for 2 hours, avoids both and allows those crazy people with 30k TNL to post heh. Great idea Jose/Wit! - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Mon Aug 28 18:49:00 2017~ Subject Dice/Shinare/Lancequest weight Weights dropped, good idea. - Ziv. change + Also, auction is yellow again, just for Wit :) Sender Zivilyn Date Wed Aug 30 14:05:56 2017~ Subject PAINTBALL The lags in Paintball after shooting, reloading, being hit etc have been adjusted. Please let me know your thoughts on them (too fast/slow etc). Mode times are: 1 single, 1.5 double, 2 burst, 3 long (violence pulses) Help me test it out in some Paintball :) - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Thu Aug 31 17:15:47 2017~ Subject QUEST INFO Quest info is a little more helpful now. It remembers what room and area the thing you're searching for is in, in case you missed it in the wall of text while you travelled :) - Ziv. Sender Zivilyn Date Tue Sep 5 14:01:05 2017~ Subject ITEM LEVELS The item levels now display as 'level to use' in shops, compare, identify, lore etc. Just taking the 'huh?' out with the trash :) - Ziv & Co. Sender Zivilyn Date Tue Sep 5 18:31:04 2017~ Subject PLAYER CORPSES: ZOMG I DIED! Player corpses will now (once again) return to the player until they pass level 14. Also, mob corpses should now be a little more accurately weighted (by race, random). - Ziv & Co. Sender Zivilyn Date Wed Sep 6 12:28:04 2017~ Subject HELPERS Helpers will now see when a new character has created and is about to connect. They will be at reading the message of the day. This allows those with HELPER toggled easier information about who could need help. - Ziv & Co. Sender Zivilyn Date Thu Sep 14 19:16:19 2017~ Subject SAC'ING containers The contents now go to the ground, had someone nuke their dice bag, sadness ensued... :( Also, Thanks Nui for many building updates/fixes. Ziv & Co. Sender Zivilyn Date Wed Sep 20 12:05:56 2017~ Subject ALIAS limit Alias limit now moved to 45, oldschool storage issues no longer affect us as much. This should help with telnet players etc. (PS. Lights added to the 3 Moons per request) Ziv & Co.
