    Ratbert reacted to Chewett in Land Loyalty   
    I shall go around changing it to land score if you wish. If you want it offical. Because from me officially, its actually meant to be called land score.
     
    No one is right, it was called land score. Mur and i discussed this when i came out, i was very much in the mind of if you defect to a land, you do not have loyalty to your old land. And he pointed out its more accurately called land score.
     
    We also discussed ways to reduce the influence of old lands, meaning that land hoppers dont necessarily have a massive bonus. But we didnt get around to implementing it.

    Ratbert reacted to Kyphis the Bard in Land Loyalty   
    My reasoning: Its called "land loyalty", not familiarity or anything like that.
     
    It's a bit hard to be loyal to a land you are not in. However, it is quite possible to have mixed loyalties. Hence, much slower loss rate than gain rate, still allowing people to be loyal to multiple lands.
     
    So you don't forget life in france after four years, big whoop. Memory and loyalty are not the same thing.
    And so you are loyal to france even if you don't live there, big whoop. Location and loyalty are not the same thing.
     
    Real world analogies don't exactly work here.
     
    You want to be show loyalty for more than one land? Fine! Go for it! Totally possible to have a constantly increasing loyalty value to upto four separate lands with this suggestion.
     
    No One, yes it impact most those that don't do it on purpose. Ironically, that's exactly who it is supposed to ;)
     
    This gives a clearer distinction between loyal subjects and alliance hoppers. It is still totally possible for people to gain loyalty in multiple lands if they want, but it discourages people from joining a land under false pretenses just so they can exploit it in the future.
     
    If people want to maintain a loyalty score with a land, they should actually need to show some loyalty to it. Even if that just means being a citizen one day in four.
     
    This doesn't place any judgement on alliance hoppers either. If a land, or multiple lands, want to allow someone to maintain a loyalty score with them when they spend most of their time in another land, they total can. But it takes the lands continued consent, not just someone lying once and reaping the benefits forever.
     
    DD, I don't think anything more needs to be done to reward loyal citizens, I just think a proper distinction needs to be made between proper loyal citizens (even if they are loyal to multiple lands, I am myself even if I only have land loyalty to MDA), and those who are just exploiting the system.

    Ratbert reacted to nadrolski in rainwater and bushies   
    they were, and not are, difficult to grab before, because MB people were protecting them from people doing Water depletion; and to be honest, even us also had more difficulties protecting them because of several events teleport spells threw us away from the scene. THAT is how i define difficult, No one.
     
    back on the topic, i support your idea for Rainwater be used to grow Bushies too, but not as the same quantity required as Water, more amount, to be specific. It is because..
     
    [Spoiler]
    when it rains, someone with a Rain Collector and/or Improvised Rain Collector gets more, i mean MORE, than what a water harvester gets. if you know what i mean.
    [/Spoiler]
     
    EDIT:
     
    and Rainwater never get depleted. harvest all you can while dancing in the rain!

    Ratbert reacted to Chewett in Regen Countdown Timer Improved   
    The Regen countdown timer has been improved so it attempts to correct the time with the server.

    Every minute that it counts down it does some math to readjust so that a slow/fast PC will not made the timer go massively slower or faster. This means that every minute it becomes "correct" again. The math is does is a soft reload, which means it does not attempt to work out if anything big has changed such as items that affect the regen. Previously it did not do this so sitting in once place for a long period of time caused it to go completely out of balance.

    If you move around or load any pages it will trigger a hard reload and it will work out the actual time and adjust to new regen times. This will then be picked up next time the timer rechecks the server by doing a soft reload and update your regen timer if it has increased/decreased.

    This will improve how the timer works so it should be more accurate, but the advice for if you want to be sure the countdown is correct for crucially timed events is to reload the page yourself.

    Note: The old flash file may be cached. The older timer will not display any of the new features which means until you have loaded the new one it may not display. You can tell if you have the new or older timer by checking the display. When there is less than 10 seconds on the seconds part of the timer the new one will display a leading one. Wheras the old one did not. See below for an example


    old timer showing 1 minute 9 seconds: 1:9
    new timer showing 1 minute 9 seconds 1:09

    To get the new one you can clear you cache and it should load the new one.
