  1. Well you must not be completely disagreeing with me because I mostly said what you did but in a more general way. Whether the progression is made faster or we start people at a higher point in the current progression the effect is that people get up to speed faster which was my point. I like your thoughts on the how. Whether it should or should not be a separate mode is immaterial. It will be. There isn't much point debating that issue here. Even your suggestion of lopping off the bottom portion of progression and starting higher is not going to sit well with most PvE players and that is j
  2. @Bloom: I really wonder whether most PvPers really want what you do in regards to progression and an unequal playing field. In theory someone might say they would like the challenge of starting on a server that is already at day 100 with most others already well established but in reality people often quit a server and never return if they die enough to reduce their wellness to 70. I think you are at the hard-core end of the spectrum in this regard. I think that there can be progression and grind to get mats but that they shouldn't be as long term and grindy as they are in the current vani
  3. I will start with player progression and experience. My opinion is there shouldn't be any. Make all players maxed out on all skills and perks from day one and remove experience from the game. With that aspect of the game removed everyone will be relatively equal and there will be no insurmountable differences in strength between someone who has been on the server for weeks and a new player who just signed on. PvP worked so much better before the game introduced all the experience, skills, and perks.

    Gazz's Bio

    There were quite a few of us at the time begging Joel to look at the fixes Gazz had already done unofficially and also (if I remember right) there was Gazz's analysis of the...ahem...fuzzy math employed for the early versions of character progression. I remember Joel was very skeptical and at first was going over Gazz's code line by line before making the changes himself manually. He refused to just copy and paste...lol. Thankfully, he came to trust and then rely upon... Nice read Gazz and congratulations.

    No more derailing this thread. I cleaned up all the stuff that should have been handled by pm if at all. Please always be courteous, especially when posting in someone else's modding thread and you are a modder yourself. Any further problems will be dealt with by vacations from the forums.
  6. This sounds cool. It would be great if someone could figure it out. What about that utf-8 at the top? Let me expose my ignorance and just ask what if it was changed to utf-9..... /no clue but interested

    Sometimes disputes occur that can derail a thread. Please resolve such disputes privately so as not to detract from Valmar's thread.

  11. Eventually, The Fun Pimps will turn their attention to PvP. Since the beginning of this game's development the main focus of balance and features has been to make it a great single player or multiplayer cooperative experience. Early on before experience and quality was introduced the game could more easily be played either competitively or cooperatively. However, as development has progressed more and more the PvP players have suffered from design choices that seriously unbalance the PvP experience. Madmole has said that there will be a separate mode for the game that will be dedicated to
  12. "The PvP Update" Claim Block Options Offline setting so that griefing and assaulting your base cannot happen unless you are online to defend Allow claimed area to be saved so that if your base is destroyed you can restore it to the last time you saved it The LCB could teleport any unfriendly player away like the trader does when the owner is offline Dynamic Claim Modifier that gives new players more protection and seasoned players less. Claim blocks should be a lot more expensive to craft If a base is breached the rest becomes invulnerable to prevent total destruction(griefing)
  13. Sent a note to Madmole about this. Thanks guys.
  14. Dev Trackers are now merged.
  15. I can merge them into one. Where is best? Here in General or there in News and Announcements?
