    Default June Community Meeting - 6/24/2017

    [2017/06/24 14:04] NeoBokrug Elytis: IT'S... TIME.
    [2017/06/24 14:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: WAHOO!
    [2017/06/24 14:04] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): lets break some aegs
    [2017/06/24 14:04] NeoBokrug Elytis: Well. It's apparently summer properly with not many people being online. : )
    [2017/06/24 14:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Nuuuu!
    [2017/06/24 14:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: Occupancy has leveled out and held strong since last month. We even got a couple new residents.
    [2017/06/24 14:05] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): nice
    [2017/06/24 14:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Whoa, that's some surprise.
    [2017/06/24 14:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: I can't really think of much that I've done in terms of estate stuff. I think torches were last month right?
    [2017/06/24 14:06] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): think so
    [2017/06/24 14:06] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i belive so
    [2017/06/24 14:06] NeoBokrug Elytis: I'm running some Ads on SLUniverse to maybe pick up a person or two for the summer. We'll see how that goes.
    [[2017/06/24 14:07] NeoBokrug Elytis: TBH, that's it for estate news. We've been focusing on game content this past month.
    [2017/06/24 14:08] NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about estate stuff, or maybe remind me of something I forgot about?
    [2017/06/24 14:08] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I have a dumb question!
    [2017/06/24 14:08] NeoBokrug Elytis: Sure
    [2017/06/24 14:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think I keep forgetting. But the Wastelander Referral Program's still dead, right? But Free Moves are in effect? Or is that backwards?
    [2017/06/24 14:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I know we're not doing *something* anymore...
    [2017/06/24 14:09] NeoBokrug Elytis: Free moves are still a thing. Referral is very dead.
    [2017/06/24 14:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Because tier is sorta "at cost," without that extra couple weeks "investment." That's right.
    [2017/06/24 14:09] NeoBokrug Elytis: Referral was a thing when I had a "land cost" back in the day.
    [2017/06/24 14:09] NeoBokrug Elytis: Right.
    [2017/06/24 14:10] NeoBokrug Elytis: Movin' on to game stuff I guess!
    [2017/06/24 14:11] NeoBokrug Elytis: Earlier in the month I completed some new methods to save HUD data that are more reliable than the old methods. Not that it was an issue, but it was something I needed to do for some updates I am working on now.
    [2017/06/24 14:11] NeoBokrug Elytis: Of which I can't really talk about yet.
    [2017/06/24 14:11] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): tease
    [2017/06/24 14:12] NeoBokrug Elytis: Gutter and I are working on new DoT effects, of which I showed off a little at the last War Zone.
    [2017/06/24 14:12] NeoBokrug Elytis: We're almost done with those!
    [2017/06/24 14:12] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yay!
    [2017/06/24 14:12] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: i think ill finish them today actually
    [2017/06/24 14:13] NeoBokrug Elytis: Grubs as a critter are in the game now! They can be found in the lower levels of the caves. More grubs will be introduced in time, and they all won't behave the same.
    [2017/06/24 14:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Grubs are really cool! Thank you for making something we can hunt that doesn't murder us in the dang face quite so much. Heh.
    [2017/06/24 14:14] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): yay creepy things
    [2017/06/24 14:14] NeoBokrug Elytis: The grubs are a bit step for future critters / rekkers. I've distilled pathfinding to something that works well in the more open areas of the estate.
    [2017/06/24 14:14] NeoBokrug Elytis: Unfortunately regions like The Wastelands or The Junkyard won't probably ever be able to have any critters or rekkers.
    [2017/06/24 14:15] NeoBokrug Elytis: Just because 95% of the land isn't owned by me.
    [2017/06/24 14:15] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): there prety busy regions anyways
    [2017/06/24 14:15] NeoBokrug Elytis: True! And the land owners get a ton of area to play with.
    [2017/06/24 14:15] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i think huntinh critters is a reason to visit more remote places regulary
    [2017/06/24 14:16] NeoBokrug Elytis: So more huntable things are on the way!
    [2017/06/24 14:16] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: oh ys
    [2017/06/24 14:16] NeoBokrug Elytis: The cave grub is also the first fully passive critter, in that it doesn't fight back. It runs away.
    [2017/06/24 14:16] Ouna (u1qtj): /me adopts one.
    [2017/06/24 14:16] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): says the person who has not killed a buzzard since 2010 or so
    [2017/06/24 14:16] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I still have not seen one yet
    [2017/06/24 14:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Did Juvenile Cinder Beetles used to bite?
    [2017/06/24 14:17] NeoBokrug Elytis: Very yes.
    [2017/06/24 14:18] NeoBokrug Elytis: I might be able to bring those back. But since they're a sculpt it might make the LI of the object explode. So I will have to bring it to a LL sandbox to test.
    [2017/06/24 14:18] NeoBokrug Elytis: Sculpts and mesh linked together is usually nothing but bad, and ends in tears.
    [2017/06/24 14:19] Merdoch Vandeverre: takes your LI 8 and LI 2 to LI30 real fast...
    [2017/06/24 14:19] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): if your lucky
    [2017/06/24 14:19] NeoBokrug Elytis: Well, that's the reason the JY builds died. Sculpts and mesh returned a lot.
    [2017/06/24 14:20] NeoBokrug Elytis: But I've got a really great base for land based critters now.
    [2017/06/24 14:20] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: we also have a top secret thing
    [2017/06/24 14:20] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: that thing
    [2017/06/24 14:20] NeoBokrug Elytis: And Animated Objects are a thing that LL is working on. SO that'll be extra exciting when that's live!
    [2017/06/24 14:20] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): well. thers a work around in stationary build .. i usualy have 2 groups of linked objects. prim and mesh .. and sculpt
    [2017/06/24 14:22] NeoBokrug Elytis: So the save data updates from earlier this month are working flawlessly. I have been working on phase 2 of that. If all goes well I could maybe have it done this week. But I have some serious RL stuff that's happening as well. I don't know what the results of that will be so, it'll happen when it does. Until then I'll keep plugging away at it.
    [2017/06/24 14:23] NeoBokrug Elytis: Cc: I do that with static builds all the time.
    [2017/06/24 14:23] NeoBokrug Elytis: Pathfinding counts as convex hull (mesh), so I can't really do that in this case.
    [2017/06/24 14:24] NeoBokrug Elytis: In essence, I've got the one BIG project and a lot of little 1-3 day projects I have going on, and when I get 'em done I'll shove 'em out.
    [2017/06/24 14:24] NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about any of that?
    [2017/06/24 14:24] Merdoch Vandeverre: Kidney Bursters?
    [2017/06/24 14:25] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Not a question, but more things to hunt is GOOD!
    [2017/06/24 14:25] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Agreed!
    [2017/06/24 14:26] Merdoch Vandeverre: well..is jus wanted t'know how thems doing is all. I'd really like to use it again ><
    [2017/06/24 14:26] NeoBokrug Elytis: I should probably also finish those plants that are going to spawn too. When I do that I will also change how the potatos work. Seems like they're nothing but misery.
    [2017/06/24 14:27] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: lol
    [2017/06/24 14:27] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): More plants!! YAY!!
    [2017/06/24 14:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: YAY!!!! \o/ PLANTS!
    [2017/06/24 14:27] Merdoch Vandeverre: Woo!
    [2017/06/24 14:27] Ouna (u1qtj): /me rubs face in taters.
    [2017/06/24 14:27] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): can we plan our own?
    [2017/06/24 14:27] NeoBokrug Elytis: Not initially.
    [2017/06/24 14:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think the plants work as intended - but people don't work as you expected.
    [2017/06/24 14:27] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: the blood in the name refers to the blood sweat and tears it takes to get them
    [2017/06/24 14:28] NeoBokrug Elytis: Not the blood spilled on the dirt here?
    [2017/06/24 14:28] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: nah that's a happy coincidence
    [2017/06/24 14:28] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: lol
    [2017/06/24 14:28] Merdoch Vandeverre: yea...we kinda got all culty about spilling blood for those tatos.
    [2017/06/24 14:28] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: jk its all about the blood
    [2017/06/24 14:28] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): scavengers are greedy .. and if you know if you dont pick it up. someone else will in 5 minutes .. ou do it
    [2017/06/24 14:28] NeoBokrug Elytis: Keep being culty
    [2017/06/24 14:28] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: spill more
    [2017/06/24 14:28] Merdoch Vandeverre: Culty is good?
    [2017/06/24 14:28] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Culty is ALWAYS good.
    [2017/06/24 14:28] Merdoch Vandeverre: Good
    [2017/06/24 14:29] Aposiopesis Fullstop: ...That should be my next bit of N documentation, maybe. Info on all the Wastelands cults.
    [2017/06/24 14:29] LucieU (loicthemodele): MAy be it should have more mussssshrooooooom
    [2017/06/24 14:30] NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh yeah, Aeg will have quests again soon.
    [2017/06/24 14:30] Merdoch Vandeverre: r/o
    [2017/06/24 14:30] NeoBokrug Elytis: MOAR quests.
    [2017/06/24 14:30] MC (michael.cela): all the quests!
    [2017/06/24 14:30] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): Yup I love the quests
    [2017/06/24 14:30] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): can one be making him catch arrows with his rips? ; -) just askin
    [2017/06/24 14:30] Aposiopesis Fullstop: >:O
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.

    [2017/06/24 14:31] NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about game stuff?
    [2017/06/24 14:31] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): does cure spoil?
    [2017/06/24 14:31] NeoBokrug Elytis: No.
    [2017/06/24 14:31] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): ok thought so
    [2017/06/24 14:32] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): but food spoils yes?
    [2017/06/24 14:32] NeoBokrug Elytis: Not yet.
    [2017/06/24 14:32] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): daw
    [2017/06/24 14:32] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): aha good to know , Thanks
    [2017/06/24 14:32] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): OK!!
    [2017/06/24 14:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: That's why you sometimes have to pick it up and put it back down, right?
    [2017/06/24 14:33] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): well i noticed rezzing some food vanished before eating, so I was just wondering
    [2017/06/24 14:33] NeoBokrug Elytis: @Apo: That's more me being OCD about code.
    [2017/06/24 14:34] NeoBokrug Elytis: @Jordy: You're not buying food from banned people are you?
    [2017/06/24 14:34] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): oh not sure i knew about the banned people thing?
    [2017/06/24 14:35] Merdoch Vandeverre: yea, their stuff despawns
    [2017/06/24 14:35] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Some sculpts vanish a bit on rez, then snap into existence in a few seconds. If it's not snapping in, or going to your Lost & Found ever...
    [2017/06/24 14:35] NeoBokrug Elytis: I think I touched upon this at the last two community meetings. If a person is game banned their stuff is flagged for deletion. Which is why you should always have someone rez something before you, and buy it that way. Then if you rez it, it becomes yours.
    [2017/06/24 14:35] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): oh i see
    [2017/06/24 14:36] NeoBokrug Elytis: Newer items let you know now I think. Older items (like food), it was a silent feature.
    [2017/06/24 14:36] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): OK!!
    [2017/06/24 14:36] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): oh good to know TY
    [2017/06/24 14:36] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): and this includes the alts too?
    [2017/06/24 14:37] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): sometimes shalow foods like bacon rezzes just withing the ground. so check lost and found
    [2017/06/24 14:37] NeoBokrug Elytis: That feature is there because I am tired of people rolling up alts and coming back to the estate with all their loot.
    [2017/06/24 14:37] NeoBokrug Elytis: Alts probably.
    [2017/06/24 14:38] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): yup agreed, so say if i were to rez it on another land outside of WL and thus claimed it as mine, then it should be okay to use or its still null and void?
    [2017/06/24 14:38] NeoBokrug Elytis: It would still be null
    [2017/06/24 14:38] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): hmmmmm...
    [2017/06/24 14:39] NeoBokrug Elytis: Previous ownership only transfers on this estate. So if you're game banned, that'll never happen.
    [2017/06/24 14:39] Aposiopesis Fullstop: If you want to buy stuff from someone, have them rez it out and set it for sale. Buy it that way.
    [2017/06/24 14:39] NeoBokrug Elytis: What Apo said.
    [2017/06/24 14:39] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): yup cause i saw people placing them in crates and was never too sure
    [2017/06/24 14:40] NeoBokrug Elytis: With all the extra LI across the estate, and low LI items, there's little reason to buy crates of stuff anymore. The old high prim weapons yes maybe, but food, naw.
    [2017/06/24 14:40] NeoBokrug Elytis: Besides, it's good decor.
    [2017/06/24 14:40] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): okays cool
    [2017/06/24 14:41] Merdoch Vandeverre: and if its rezzed out there on a shelf, ya know it won't auto-delete
    [2017/06/24 14:41] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): yup
    [2017/06/24 14:41] NeoBokrug Elytis: Pretty much. And if a person is estate banned, then that shelf won't even be there.
    [2017/06/24 14:41] NeoBokrug Elytis: I mean I know on one hand it's a hassle.
    [2017/06/24 14:43] NeoBokrug Elytis: But people who are game banned are looking to make something of being banned. Disrupting the economy, or alting up and coming back, or whatever. I know stuff poofing is an issue because of it. I think if someone sells you something and it legitimately poofs, ask for a refund once you determine it's not some sort of rezzing error.
    [2017/06/24 14:44] NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions?
    [2017/06/24 14:45] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hmm. Long-term question, sorta...
    [2017/06/24 14:45] NeoBokrug Elytis: k
    [2017/06/24 14:45] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But, what with experience tools being able to make things follow people, etc.... would we ever be able to bait critters? Or even tame them?
    [2017/06/24 14:46] NeoBokrug Elytis: Bait yes, tame, idk yet.
    [2017/06/24 14:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop: (I always think things would sound cool, but have no idea if there's actually code that could support it.)
    [2017/06/24 14:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha, awesome.
    [2017/06/24 14:46] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): You're welcome to try taming me.
    [2017/06/24 14:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Now I'm just thinking of The Little Prince.
    [2017/06/24 14:46] NeoBokrug Elytis: I'll just make it so pit tiles never re-open for you.
    [2017/06/24 14:47] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): but i realy realy need 2 swarms of bees that follow my ervery comand
    [2017/06/24 14:47] Aposiopesis Fullstop: OHGOD NO.
    [2017/06/24 14:47] Merdoch Vandeverre: as long as we can kill bees with fire...
    [2017/06/24 14:47] NeoBokrug Elytis: Flying pathing is still kind of out there in terms of being better or good. I have some ideas, but they're not as good as ground pathing.
    [2017/06/24 14:47] NeoBokrug Elytis: Anyway
    [2017/06/24 14:48] NeoBokrug Elytis: Now is the time for open floor RP and events discussion! After that I'll meet you all in Fort Stygian at 3pm for War Zone.
    [2017/06/24 14:48] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Groundcritters are better, though. Don't have to use ranged weapons / waste ammo on them.
    [2017/06/24 14:48] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Not really RP, but the Buzzard Hunt is still goin on through June, it is not too late to win!
    [2017/06/24 14:48] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): http://forums.the-wastelands.org/sho...5-Buzzard-Hunt!
    [2017/06/24 14:48] Jordy Zipdash (jordy.parkin): hahah those grubs are so hard to swipe, I was laughing while attempting to get one
    [2017/06/24 14:48] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thanks again, guys, for this past couple phases of the Aeg arc. It's really been awesome.
    [2017/06/24 14:49] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): The articles have been awesome, Apo!
    [2017/06/24 14:49] Mayo von Thalhofen (myotis.draconia): i have a kinda off topic question
    [2017/06/24 14:49] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Aw, thanks, Irk!
    [2017/06/24 14:49] NeoBokrug Elytis: I really liked all the articles you wrote about the Aeg arc on http://press.the-wastelands.org/
    [2017/06/24 14:49] Aposiopesis Fullstop: ^__^
    [2017/06/24 14:50] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): if anyone of you thinks its time for your character to endure nasty nightmares, mood shifts and potential psycho trauma. let me know. im kinda trying to set up a little something
    [2017/06/24 14:50] NeoBokrug Elytis: Ask your question mayo
    [2017/06/24 14:51] Mayo von Thalhofen (myotis.draconia): to get drunk or not to get drunk?
    [2017/06/24 14:51] NeoBokrug Elytis: Not to get drunk. The world will end if I get drunk.
    [2017/06/24 14:51] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): CC, Mayo. Mayo, Cc!
    [2017/06/24 14:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop: BRB, pouring vodka into the Tin Man.
    [2017/06/24 14:51] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Oh, so that's what happened at Sarnath.
    [2017/06/24 14:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop: HAH!
    [2017/06/24 14:51] NeoBokrug Elytis: haha
    [2017/06/24 14:52] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Apo's still got some small RP quests available!
    [2017/06/24 14:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I'm sorta sucking at figuring out how to publicize that better; once it starts rolling, there might be more word of mouth for it? But yeah. If you want to do some exploring and get some semi-snazzy rewards (and hear a bucket fulla RP lore and whathaveyou,) hit her up. :V
    [2017/06/24 14:54] NeoBokrug Elytis: Sounds fun!
    [2017/06/24 14:55] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Irk thought so! And Irk is Good People! (Is this how marketing works? Am I doing it?)
    [2017/06/24 14:55] NeoBokrug Elytis: Fuck if I know!
    [2017/06/24 14:55] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
    [2017/06/24 14:55] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yeah Irk did it!! and it was fun, I need to collect the rest of the beads...
