    Dragon Illusion. With multiple color choices. Like the ones from Crescent Reach. I can think of a quest arc to earn one so I am sure the Dev's can as well. ...If not Christmas.... well we do need a good quest and reward for next years anniversary too.

    How about an Illusion: Game Servers Operating first.

    You got that, for about 18 minutes.

    And people that can contribute zero to getting the game servers back up have time to converse.

    Dragons have too many polygons and use too much memory to give as a plyer illusion and have that many dragons around in a zone at once.

    That reason applies to mounts as well (The familiar has sailed so... no comment there) AND anyone who tries to put a saddle on a dragon who has not volunteered will be eaten by said dragon.

    Has there ever been any thought to allowing players to put more model graphics to the player PC side versus the serverside? Kind of like how a lot of the zone geometry and things were moved to the PC side to allow for faster loading?

    Something to reduce the pressure on the eq servers, and move it to the player PCs which most are WAY better than anything we need for this game.

    Ngreth. I have enjoyed your work, and that of the other devs., for many years. I hope in my occasional forays into sarcasm and flippancy that I haven't seemed to imply that your work and that of the other devs, isn't appreciated. I apologize if I sometimes hit the wrong target. Thank you for your work and I hope we can all log in soon to appreciate it fully.
  7. Ngreth Thergn Developer

    Yes. And it may already do some of this (I'm not sure here, but I know the models are on the client, and we do on-demand loading) but the issue is the 32bit memory limit. It's rather easy to reach that, then the client runs out of memory and crashes :/

    It's why my response was mild :) Thanks!

    Just turn every mob and player into a dragon. Problem solved.

    I want a dragon house like a giant sleeping dragon whose mouth you walk into and zo in by running down it's throat. Then the different organs are rooms..I'd pay good money for that. Make it at least like 3 color choices..the nice red, the white shiney, maybe a royal blue, and a black. Sellem $100. And they should take up the whole housing plot! :)

    ^^so you want to be inside a dragon, huh?
  11. Sokki Still Won't Buff You!!

    Is that why the only Dragon illusion (Aspect of the Brood) is so tiny? For a dragon it's quite small with several other illusions being way bigger in comparison.
  12. Tegila Augur

    yup. but hey i have no issue taking up residence in corpses either

    So why keep an old game an old game? Why not move it to the64 bit realm. I mean if Nintendo could do it decades ago..what is keeping the rulers of Everquest from doing it? 99.9% of PC's sold are 64 bit these days. You shoot yourselves in the foot keeping it at 32 bit and introducing more problems than are fixed. Just my 2Copper.

    Going to take a stab at you don't know much about program coding?

    On the one hand targeting 64-bit vs. 32-bit is trivial. But then you decide you should use the latest version of Visual Studio, right? Now you find that code that compiled on VS 2008 (or whatever version you are on) no longer compiles because of changes to C++, etc. Sometimes you are using 3rd party libraries that are obsolete and aren't available for 64-bit. There are a ton of reasons, honestly. It's the proverbial can of worms.

    honestly, I'd rather have the stick man illusion that we had a few years back on April Fool's day as an illusion instead lol. Loved that thing.

    April 1st, all toons should be "Doug" for 24 hours!
