Re: Legal implications for server operators

No, I was involved with hosting public servers for FPS games such as Battlefield, CS, HL2, etc. Basically, you buy the client game and then you can connect to a public server hosted by a provider. For public servers, the only money involved was for players to buy the client and for providers to run ...

Re: Legal implications for server operators

Yeah, this is the kind of subject nobody wants to talk about (including myself) until there's a knock at the door.

Re: Funding the Shards

#1 - Very bad idea. We have discussed about desireable qualities for admins. "Having money" isn't one of them. Lots of jerks have money. #2 - A little better, depending on what functions would be enabled. Acceptable for harmless things such as having the ability to open certain doors, to make some o...

Re: Speaking of Bugzilla....

Age writers are not developers. Age testers are not QA pros.

Go for ease of use over ANY other consideration.

Re: Desert day and night cycle

- The Relto page doesn't have to be in the fireplace, it could be anywhere. - Because of Zandi, the transition would be tricky. Nobody I know has made an avatar animation (although I'm sure we could). Then we'd have to think of all possible cases (should he say "good night" if you're standing next t...

Re: Client: StarLion's KI Overhaul

It is essential that the GUI be modeled using a 3D editor and exported into prp-compatible objects. So far that means Blender with PyPRP. Paradox at GoW has done some work on GUI compatibility with PyPRP and has posted some screenshots, but integration is far from complete. The mechanisms for integr...

Re: Guild pubs editions

Good ideas, and easily implemented. Pretty much like the options in the neighborhood. Those are all things we can do right now. It would be possible to add these into a separate prp, and you would be able to activate any number of them by editing your sdl file. On a Shard, the admin would use VaultM...

Re: Cleaning Up Instancing

Personally I agree about that, but I'm thinking of the new players who would want to do the quest themselves, maybe with a little help from friends. Helping people solve Kadish was one of the best things in MOUL. We do need to have something to do in the game, otherwise it gets old fast. Problem: No...

Re: Client: Wardrobe Selection

This is a good idea and it is easy to implement. It would take Dustin about a couple of hours to add that to the current userKi that we use for POTS and Alcugs. There is already a "/suitup" command that changes all your clothing pieces to the Maintainer suit, reading from a text file wouldn't add mu...
