    Aia finished converting flash scenes to individual images for artwork and clickables, over 200 of them. Now we need to assamble a team for uploading these and configuring their clickables to mimic original functionality. Please post here if you are willing to help. Because past experience with people that offered to help but did nothing, i am asking you not to offer your help if you are not sure you have time for this. This announcement is mainly for people that have past experience with A25 tools but also for people that are convinced they could learn using them. Lets get rid of this flash Updated list Azull (x) [ok] - has access Ungod (x) [ok] - has access, delay possible Aia (b) [ok] - has access Shemhazaj (ne) [test pending] - docs acc sent redneck (ne) [denied - not active in general or recently] Fang Archbane (ne) [denied - complain received against this application, plus we have enough participants as it is] (ne) = no a25 tools experience previously (b) = beginner level or very limited a25 use prev (×) = experienced with a25 tools [review pending] = i will consider if you will be participating or not [test pending] = you will receive a test with these tools so you see how they work and we both decide if you will help with the scenes or not. ANYONE WITH THE A25 MEDAL WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY ACCEPTED.

    Some thoughts, although I fear mine understanding of the inner-workings of the realm were not quite as those who otherwise shape it: In regard to "worldly inertia" - I wonder if a simpler (or at least, singular) term for it were corporeality - that which makes one substantial; tethered to reality, rather than ethereal, that which were tethered to the aether. When one should recruit or upgrade of a creature, in example, or obtain of some armour, one may trade of her corporeality to bring that which she wishes into its own corporeality. Of Action-Points - mayhap, the concept may be described by Willpower (or even just Will) - one expends of this to perform of any movement or activity.

    MD Screen on big monitor

    Oh but MD needed this and quite badly. I am happy people give me feedback on the interface, i qm just not happy that i can't satisfy everyones taste with it To make it clear , without flashless interface MD would have permanently died in just a couple of months, making it impossible to migrate later. Flash support is being dropped by all browsers permanently, and is already disabled by default. Without a wider interface we would have been stuck in a pre 2000 style design, unable to add anything new and usefull to it. Without mobile friendly responsive, interface MD already paid a drastic price losing more than 70% of its audience. Without more space for tools and interface, the tools wpuld have been difficult to use, and they are md's future in what the gameplay is, and what things are being created for its players, by its players. All this made this new interface absolutely mandatory, and i am saying this for years, i just intervened now before it would have been too late. If this stagnates soon, it is already something anyone else would have taken many months of work to accomplish as it is now, and thats no overestimation. I don't afford to hire a couple designers to make a look everyone would like, and a coder to code it, and me alone this is what could do, Chew does his part as well, thats it, Period. I was hoping to get constructive observations, not the feeling that i disturbed you by creating something absolutely unavoidable, that you think its just my passing mood.

    Heat Veins Mapping

    Things we need to discuss: - How will be heat veins distributed, there are two ways. Initially i wanted them in a way that combines these two ways, but very fast i realized its not possible. Since then i set them up in a mix of these two ways, we need to discuss what is better and reset all of them accordingly. - Aelis needs to play with the tools and learn what to do and what he should do. For this he needs the tools (Azull, you will do the honors) but not before we talk with him about that. He will do Loreroot, a the veins there are easier to plan than the rest of the land. - Chew if you have any unclarities about the tools or the new thigbs thet support, let me know - Shem, Aia, i find you the most online and "friendly" so you will help Aelis with his first steps. You will also be the ones double testing if the veins where placed correctly once someone is done with an area. - We need to discuss who takes what area, i want deeper, less circulated areas taken by the most experienced of you, and the lands by their former kings (where the case) - Syrian, you have the tools for a very long time and you need to prove you haven't become a fossil with them..tool-fossil I am sure its no problem with that, but it still means you have to put some effort into it. More details in the throne hall meeting.

    The absence of snow

    For this Christmas, I bring you a little quest in the 'decorate a scene' style. You can work digitally or analog, as long as you respect the indications. The indications are hinted in the title - I want something that reflects the absence of snow. You are to take a scene that has lots of open space and no buildings, such as Tranquil Plains (a very simple building or a very small one is ok). Color it lightly with nuances of blue of your choosing (you can add other colors as well, as long as it fits the 'blue' theme). Also, add an unfinished snowman somewhere in the scene or anything else that expresses this idea of 'absence of snow'. You can submit 3 entries at most, but only one may be rewarded. You can participate with your main OR any of your alts. Deadline is two weeks from now and rewards are: 1 creature of mine (I'll give the winner the choice between a santa, an shmsh, a nutcracker and other medium-rare ones) plus 3 credits for first place, 1 gold plus 3 credits for second, 3 credits for third. Good luck!

    I feel that the portal as it doth exist for most doth contain of much horizontal space, but find it rather odd that despite this, one needst scroll to access of chat-features. Furthermore, it seems that the scene artwork could be enlarged to take advantage of this for greater immersion within the scene, and also to allow for smaller, and therefore a greater number, of clickies within each scene. Attached were a mock-up of how I believe this may be improved; note that the scene artwork is scaled to 150% of its initial value, and the resolution were 1920x1080.

    A simple mathematical method of scaling would be to make the WInertia required simply scale with the power of the number of creatures of that species already possessed. If one should set the modifier such that WInertia required = 1.2^x, where X were the pre-existing number already possessed by that player, this should allow for very significant scaling, and diminishing returns on larger values of WInertia. For example, if a creature were to cost 2000 base points, the second would cost 2400 - a slight increase; but the tenth would cost almost 12400 points, and the twentieth a little over 76000 points. Thus, increasing of these points were still of benefit, and more were always desirable, but one thinkst that she must vary of her ensemble.
  8. 2 points
    i think a % can work if you making it a scaling percentage. so as you increase your max WI you can recruit a higher number of creatures. maybe that 30% would go down to 25, then 20, then 15, then 10, so it still rewards stat progression. if you have millions of WI to start with, making it a flat 30% is just going to feel punishing for having put in all that effort to get there and remove all sense of acheivement for putting in the grind. if it's 30% plus a flat number, then you can only ever recruit 3 creatures , however, if you have mililons of WI, it's going to take you MUCH longer to regenerate that 30% to be able to recruit another, than say a newbie with barely any. the solution to that would be to make WI regerenate as a % , but then again, then tha tjust removes the point of farming WI to begin with, and it might as well be the same fixed value for everyone

    Shop changes and new items

    I would like some feedback on some things i want to add or change in the shop, to know if they are ok to be added to the shop, how deep, how many, etc. Please understand that my account is messed up with all sort of tests and changes and i might not accurately know what some items do or how they really influence you , thats why i need your feedback on this. stock changes are already in effect (id9) Bronze Avatar - removed for now, the interface no longer supports this (id20) Raw energy - loads 1500 heat, i want to change this to 1 heat stone (id21) Overcharged energy - gives 2500 heat, changed stock from 10 to 50, planning to make it give 4400 heat (max the erolin can hold active at one time right now), or load all heat orbs. (id30) Mechanical Movement Aid - change stock from 4 to 20 , planning to increase ap boost from 50 to 500 (id33) Goblet of energy - change stock from 2 to 5 additional heat slots (id25) Sack of Gold (gives value points) - change to give more vp but also 1 silver. (id24) Map Activity Overview - not sure what it does now after flash change, but i am thinking to make it show the online playerlist that is now scrolling under the map (id48) Map location of online players - does this work? (id54 - mp2) Mass Heal Creatures - heals 16 crits now - i plan to make it heal 40 (id53 - mp2) Illusion points - increased from 10 to 20 (id36) Sacred Goblet of Energy - gives heat slots, increased stock from 2 to 6 (id91) +50% AP Boost - increased stoc from 12 to 20 (id95) Token Removal Gel - increased stock from 20 to 50 (id8) Great Concoction of True Self - increased stock from 8 to 16 (id1) Vitality Elixir I - increased stock from 4 to 16 (id31) Gold Bottle of Learning - increasess skills by 3 permanent , stoc increased from 1 to 20 (id32) Bottle of Alchemic Gold - gives 800 max vitality pernament, increased stoc from 1 to 10 Regeneration Ritual of Youth , Regeneration Ritual of Vengeance - regenerates 8/16 crits and gives a modest boost, i want to make this percentage boost not fixed, for example instead of 60 attack, to give you plus 60% attack, its temporary aftrall increase tokens stock - changed to 20 I want to put enchanted stones in shop, i am waiting for suggestions, what would be ok (not to powerful but not to little) to have in shop? An other things i am planning to change, is the number of shop items you can see at one time. Right now the "slots" where designed to match 1 stoc items more, but over the years i added more and more items with multiple stoc, so i will increase the shop slots of items you can pick from , by at least 1 slot. (opinions?) Let me know what you think thanks

    The popup window shouls be fixed now, at least on the screens i checked (mobile). I am moving the new interface live today, i tried my best to listen to your complains and fix what i could, i will continue to fix more on the way. I can just hope that after the initial votes the interface became better. You can continue to post screens and suggestions here. Expect a wave of broken things once it goes live, i hope there won;t be any new ones, but these things never go better, they go worse. I will focus on fixing as much as i can after the move. Chew will be able to resume his work too once its moved live to md.

    Made several fixes both to super small screen and very large screens. The top menu will hide several less significant items on smaller screens also. No more horizontal scrolling and better overall layout. I hope it makes a difference. I will continue placing unfinished things such as stats, or remove them maybe. Its starting to get better. Ps: Also, just because of Nava, i made it so jailed people can't use the moodpanel anymore, but once i will put the new interface back it will be possible. I am still thinking if to leave it so or still allow jailed to use moodpanel.

    Doing that would create an interesting area which could then have the next "stage" of MD take place in. The balance between NC and the rest of the world, staying away yet being drawn to it.

    Heat Veins Mapping

    Very interesting concept, thanks for sharing it with us all! I can see an analogy between heat veins and the circulatory system: all lands except Necrovion behaving like "systemic circulation", while Necrovion can be seen like "pulmonary circulation".

    Heat Veins Mapping

    About the veins and how they could be set There are two conflicting ways of setting them up. Depending on what we decide about this, they will be useful for one or the other thing later. First i want to make it clear what they veins are, and i want you to follow their concept when placing them, completely disregarding any potential use. Any potential use will have to confront the way they are setup, and not the other way around, so forget about Darvin traveling them, or the needles or whatever. The first way - most practical Veins lead to a lands capitol when traveled inwards and to the lands exit when traveled outwards. Problems: This leaves some lands in confusion, as they have no capitol or a place that could be considered one. Also they might not all have an exit/entrance, mainly i am talking about NML. The second way - most beautiful This is the original concept, one i still like very much, even if not the most practical one. Veins originate at the edges of the world, and follow a path towards the Death Marrow in necrovion. On their way, heat veins transport fresh heat across the realm, and as these veins touch the realm inhabitants, they get dirty, like polluted water. In necrovion, as they reach Death Marrow, heat already has converted into liquid dust. Problems: this could mix well with the first way, if we consider them to originate in each lands capitol, and consider necrovion reversed polarity. This is probably the way i want it done, if you could plan a way to make sense. Having it done like this, also means there will be a disproportionate balance of forces between necrovion and the rest of the lands, but i am not sure what this means, if its an advantage or a disadvantage. Necrovion is closed and rule-less, so that would not be a problem, but it must make sense. You should consider veins as rivers. Some areas can only take you to the main stream and more streams would collide to take you towards the exit, or deathmarrow, or both (depending on what we decide). Again, never setup veins to support the functionality of a location from the perspective of vein aware tools, instead, they need to make sens from a concept point of view. Someone that will understand the concept first, should be able to find the right tools and "abuse" it if the concept allows, but the concept itself should be flawless. Also there are underground tunnels and very remote areas such as the prison. Consider _ALL_ places in the realm need to follow same heatvein concept...in some cases just mapping the veisn should reveal important secrets about the placement of those locations. I am glad i have all of you in this team, as you all seem fully capable people to come with good ideas.

    this is it for now: the menu thing ges too complicated, and the heat orbs i dont want to, maybe later if i find something better but for now no. The layout is available under the second layout option, i will teak it some more probably
  18. 1 point
    You have some very valid points, i might change my mind about the change. However i would still like to fix the original issue that made me want this change, maybe you have ideas how to. The creature prices for old players are meaningless, this allows absurdly easy farming of crits. Filling your creature slots should be increasingly difficult, not easier. The advantage given by Wi and more creature slots should mean you can grow more crits, but not faster or at basically zero cost. The way it is now, it takes away the challenge, and creates exponentially faster growing creature farms, so to speak.

    Help write articles

    I want to start promoting MD again. I am planning to start a SEO campaign and post some articles with links to MD allover the web, to help us get some more players. Is there anyone here that can write some 700 word articles about browser based games (half about such games in general and half about Md) ? This would help me greatly, i will handle the posting and adjust keywords and links myself, but i need something to start from. I need multiple such articles written in different form, so i cant write everything myself, and if multiple people write a couple, or at least one, it would be just perfect. Thanks Ps. Ofc there are rewards for your effort involved

    Yea, a bit unpopular, I'd agree. I think that seeing the larger picture is something only some have the ability, luxury and desire to do, so I doubt pushing this burden onto the common folk is going to achieve anything. China, for example, did something great when implementing the one-child policy; of course there were major downsides to that, but I think it was the right choice for China (and the world as well). The irony of a 'us vs them' culture is that sometimes it manages to create healthier communities than the 'no barrier' culture; the downside is that sometimes it ends up all life. You're the first to take a 'pro' gate stance. Your arguments sound like those of a Roman governor. Too bad they left those Germanic tribes bribe them over the decades. Edit:

    MD Screen on big monitor

    Mur, take it as a sign of love for another interface you designed. Undying love, even. @peeps: two days ago I met an angry VorniC at GoE (scene still on flash); the scene didn't load for him and he was on phone. He was like 'nothing works, why isn't MD focusing on fixing these things'. I told him to come back in a week I, too, found only one viable browser that supported flash on mobile and I don't know if it's still available. It's not like Mur woke up one morning and decided to f*** up MD and upset a bunch of players...so instead of complaining, try to say something like 'This looks great, but could you perhaps...'. I, for one, think more about stuff like quests and some other things that need our attention. There's a lot of work to be done.

    How Do you like the new interface so far?

    Can we make the notification box appearing when moving to another scene smaller (width-wise)? It's usually covering the entire scene and I can't move to the next one without having to wait 2-3- secs. Also, when setting up rituals, the default is 50% VE, but the slider is on the far left (0%). So I if I want to set 0%, I have to slide it to the right and then to the left again...

    Also TST is not just about spending a lot. Tickets are given on rare occasions out for high spenders even if they already spent. They run long time without any value so they could be traded for very little at the right moment, so someone still active, with tickets, is a player that got involved heavily and is still around..this for me means he/she is a member of the community thst will continue to be around and could put importsnt tools to good use. Now while being more active with the new interface, i might release other things out in exchange of tickets, just to keep them existing in-game. Such autions are intended also to gather gold off the market and by that increase its importance, they are a natural and much needed economic process to keep the community balanced and avoid inflation, espexially after very long periods. I am explaining all this for who wants to learn something

    I know, but its still a good ideea if you ignore the fact there are not enough people to make it usable. I don't want to cripple the interface just because there aren't enough people right now. I could hide it based on number of lho or online people, but i don;t want to remove it yet.

    It is unfortunate to see you go, Blackshade. I had kindly asked you to not resell the Imprinted Dark, as attributing a value in gold to it taints the personal nature of the item and the quest that was in place to obtain it. If you are departing the game, I'd kindly ask for the item to be returned - or passed down to one other that you deem worthy.

    1. How do you like the new interface I like it 2. Compared to current MD interface, how do you find this one? Worse, just because of resolution issues and other small errors or missing features 3. Do you think its ready to be go live on main MD? No, same reasons it is worse 4. What do you like about it? Colors/Animations, darker page background is nice. Pin/unpin buttons are good, I think the compass wheel needs something similar to keep it open so we can use the left bar links more easily, as the compass closes quickly when you mouse away. 5. What do you hate about it Page structure, obvious resolution errors. I don't think the scene art to the right side of the online players/chat is the best place, maybe on the left side instead or above like in MD. Different positions for certain other elements too, specially the live help operator button since it is on the bottom right and I didn't notice it with the mood panel pinned, it could go above the achievements book.

    After setting a mood panel status using the rightbar, it seems to open the mood panel in the middle panel. This was a sideeffect of having anything that opens in the sidebar popup depending on resolution. Its a lot of complicated js work there, and i just got it to work, i wont mess with it anymore. In a way i kind of like how it behaves, i dont consider it a bug, just a bit strange, but easy to get accustomed to. If you can fix it better without breaking the way this behaves on mobile, have fun
