    I got my notice after the down time yesterday, including the new call home.

    Daily cape update:
    I'm wearing the cloak on Leu as she's the one that's moving the most.
    She logged in Raj'dur Plateaus with her cloak colored
    - zoned into Takish Badlands, cloak colored
    - zoned into Sandstone Delta, cloak colored
    - ported back to Raj'dur cloak turned bleached
    - zoned back to Takish Badlands and cloak got recolored!

    I must say that it's quite fun to behold.

    we should keep that bug, it sounds interesting and fun, you never know what you get when you zone.

    WOOHOOOOOO!!!! I've wanted this fore YEARS, ever since I first published The Great Frostfell Tree. TYTYTYTYTYTY!!!!
    <insert dancing banana emoji here>
    On Mum's awesome page:
    Notes:
    • The Slippery Ice Tile will cause players to slide across it when they step on it. This also works when placed underwater and underneath other items.
    Now, do I unpublish to add to my skating rink??
    Hmmmmm, the decisions a Micro-gnome with a Frostfell addiction faces sometimes, I tell you!

    Maybe you can answer my question, then; why did we get a new Call Home? :-/

    It was a weird surprise; I don't remember that being one of the glorious new things they were going on about in the official announcement...

    Well, yeah, but wasn't the original point of the new cloak to be ice-colored? :-/

    Simple; just hit the Publish button on your "you are now in your home, better pay your rent or else" screen and it'll look surprised that you want to unpublish, after all the hard work you put in to publish in the first place. ;->

    Oh! Save your title (if you haven't memorized it yet! :D) in like Notepad or something, just in case; many's the time I jumped through all the hoops all over again (often to place a Hall of Fame award cup in the house that won it...after one or two of those, I just put them someplace I haven't published yet ;->), only to forget what I called it. X-P

    I was told , that the new call home is faster than before.

  9. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Hmm! But there are existing ways to speed that up; I've done that myself, though I've never remembered (or understood?) exactly what it was I did. :-/

    Still, it's a nice touch, if a confusing one; certainly wasn't expecting it. Thanks for the info! :)

    I wonder if it's lighting changes in Frostfell Village (and possibly in other zones as well), and the day/night cycle, causing this cloak to look grey at times.

    Please note that even her hair color looks different on the left. And I'm not picking on any particular person, just wondering if it's the lighting and day/night cycle affecting perception of color all around.

    It's a valid point, though they've had issues in the past with a re-skin/re-coloring of something that's basically the same. I can dig that they want to be able to re-use items, but sometimes things like this happen in the process. :-/

    It's not a lighting issue, because now it can be either color in any zone. Different from 'world' to dressing room. It's just confused.

    Hopefully, after this next update to Test you won't have to debate the issue of the black & blue or white & yellow cloak.

    BUG:
    It wasn't such a big deal back in the old days, when you wouldn't be punished for hailing Santug a second early, but it's getting weird... :-/

    The following are excerpts from my Log files on Test:

    (1670162100)[Sun Dec 4 05:55:00 2022] You say, "Hail, Santa Glug"
    (1670162100)[Sun Dec 4 05:55:00 2022] \aNPC 118056 Santa Glug:Santa Glug\/a says to you, "Happy Frostfell, Branwyn!! I have gifties galore! I have one special for you!"
    (1670162100)[Sun Dec 4 05:55:00 2022] You say to Santa Glug, "Thank you!"
    (1670162101)[Sun Dec 4 05:55:01 2022] You receive \aITEM -1720378610 -1994581968: Petamorph Wand: Iceborn Brute\/a.

    (I know there isn't a gap between the : and the P in Petamorph, but it kept emoting automatically...is there a way to turn that off?)

    And then, what I thought was 18+ hours later (silly me):

    (1670226902)[Sun Dec 4 23:55:02 2022] You say, "Hail, Santa Glug"
    (1670226902)[Sun Dec 4 23:55:02 2022] \aNPC 62166 Santa Glug:Santa Glug\/a says to you, "Happy Frostfell, Branwyn!! I have gifties galore! I have one special for you!"

    I was willing to hail him a second later than the last time, just to be on the safe side, but I got punished anyway, and it took a good 3 seconds to get back where I needed to be (it's gone at least as high as 4+ in the past). :-/

    I can keep track of seconds on my computer clock, but I can't keep track of whatever the 1670226906 whatever bits are, except for in the log. How many bits of those are in 18 hours? :-/ And however many bits there are, there was still one more bit in the end (226902) than there'd been the day before (162101) at the hail, which seem to correlate to seconds (ah! 64,800 seconds in 18 hours; 226,902 - 162,101 = 64,801 seconds later)? :confused:

    With Ollamh, granted, it was only 18 hours, 1 second after I'd received something that I would've received the next gifty, not since hailing Santug. Does that make a difference? :-/

    Uwk, are you seriously whining and spamming the board because of a 3 second discrepancy between your computer clock and the server's? Unless both machines are syncing with an atomic clock right before you ask that's going to happen and it's way out of Kaitheel's province to fix! Seriously, to quote Shatner, 'get a life!' - or just take a coffee break before you start!
  20. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    It wouldn't be such a big deal if the penalties for getting it wrong weren't so time consuming. :-/

    Also, I wasn't comparing my clock to the game's clock, I was comparing the game's clock to the game's clock.
