we had a long discussion on lordchat tonight about buddy channels and flaming/harassment on them, and hyperion has stated that we may not flame or "pretend flame" people on private buddysets. help flaming - This generally refers to insulting/deriding/name-calling/verbally abusing/etc another player over a public channel. - either this needs changing or we need a confirmation about language policy on publ

Please don't send non ideas to the idea list. I have enough to do without having to forward other stuff to the proper places.

Disarm recovering should keep them from striking for a round, you'd think it'd take a second to recover after fumbling.

Dream on.
TLaRA

2004-08-28 03:20:41
Furthermore -- players can't recover disarms from anyone higher leveled then them. Impliment recovery chance against higher level based on dexterity.

Players can recover by typing commands. Instant recover fakes the AI of having mobs rewield later.

Going on Blackout's idea of castable ablution: Allow a cle/prs ritual of 2-3 to ablution a target. Good for bzk.

No. Not going to make a ritual to get around everything I deliberately didn't give bzk, as I've said maybe 8 times.

i think it would help newbies if they had an inventory item that they start with as newbie gear that gives them advice from time to time things like

Good thing thing they have on. No on gear listing. Newbies don't really NEED any particular gear.

replace the light slot with floating around you so it doesnt seem like weve sprouted so many extra arms

I think that was the plan with held actually. Maybe later.

berserker rescue cancel berserk affects but retain lag to reactivate.

What?
TLaRA

2004-08-28 12:06:18
Have damage in 'The Stands' for UD bypass config +battlenone. You're there for the reason of watching, no?

Turn battlenone off if you go to watch. Yay for thinking instead of expecting hardcode to spoonfeed you!
Nicolae

2004-08-28 12:21:16
spiritlink for paladin's - - - would raise intrest in the class and cause more poeple to play it

Meh. Bad reason.
Nicolae

2004-08-28 12:26:32
remort from lord 500 pick a race ( no HiE, Hob, Tua, aka any who use prereq's ), pick class ( one avalable to your current class ) - - - just idea

Thus bypassing all that's cool about the whole idea. Yeah. Sure.

When an npc stands up after a bash but dosnt face you the game says it tries to stand up but cant. (Mostly when soloing)

Bash and trip/toss are perma-broke. They will never make 100% logical sense, so just deal with their idiosyncrasies as best you can.
Arket

2004-08-28 18:29:15
If you fail morph and fall below level 500 when you come back to level 500 you get the Snikt tells you, 'The option to morph is available now. help morp h.' even though you cant morph since your not back to where you were.

Are you calling Snikt a liar? The help is correct. You have access to the command again, even if you can't use it for other reasons.

Quest prize: character rebuild into any class at current race.

K?
Xyth

2004-08-28 21:46:10
Automatic Skill, 'improved grip' mainly for Bzk, War or Rog at higher levels. Makes it the character resistant to having their 'double wielded' weapon from being

Maybe later. I'll let people know when the weapons system is ready for ideas/expansion.
Xyth

2004-08-28 22:19:25
Lord Info filter, when ON all shifts of someone who is following someone other then their "self" is removed, and those who are in a group (solo or ppl following)

Meh. Sounds like a lot of code for a very minor player convenience.
Anaire

extend setmin/setmout to allow the direction to be somewhere besides the end of the string

No.
TLaRA

2004-08-28 23:37:23
Make white marble crosses purchased from Rietta level 55. This keeps heroes from using them, but makes it easier for sors to violate them at lord.

Can't.
Teksu

2004-08-29 03:04:23
should psioncists learn identify during lowmort?

Apparently not.

Map isn't finished yet. Love, Mega. never was finished

And your point?
Draeger

2004-08-29 03:53:21
asn, pr int, shouldn't they have an xtra stealth mod compared to rogs? they have the ability to aim at the right spots and do everything perfectly!

To a certain extent, they do, in the form of Reputation getting them attacked less. Let me be clear; I will never code anything that lets you hide from detect-hidden mobs etc. Even reputation, and the affect of high racial stealth on chance of being aggied only works if there's someone else in the room to attack when the mob skips over you.
Levanadel

2004-08-29 05:25:48
i think that humans should be able to remort into some kind of human only race i cant think of one atm but someone who sees this might be able too.

I don't.
Doolen

2004-08-29 08:19:13
combat rituals for spells like web or faerie fire (or anything really) take about 3-5 people and make it almost certain of working

Maybe at Legend. Casters don't really need any more power at Lord.
Hocus

2004-08-29 08:32:25
why shouldn't there be a choas channel 2 ? for low hero mages I do not know any low hero mage that does not run out of mana it would give them mages

This is why I gave them chaos channel in the first place. Why don't we just turn off mana costs? Would that help?
Zorks

that i am cool

I haven't had breakfast yet. Maybe I'll have pfiles. Yummy, yummy pfiles...
Giaeron

2004-08-29 16:29:22
change racial butcher, instead of a plain steak a healing consumable

What butchered steaks and corpse eating should really do is restore AP/moves, not HP. Level 3; rework corpse-eating and steaks to restore AP when AP system comes back. Put timer on steaks so they are unhordable.
Drenalone

2004-08-29 17:21:04
today i just realized that sneak attack overrides the surprise other social...

Lvl 1; rename surprise social.
Cerdwyn

anyway we can get herolist working again?

Probably. DW?
Cerdwyn

2004-08-29 20:47:06
should reference to eq register be removed from help files now that we have insure?

Probably. Lvl 1

Holding a emerald longsword and shield, I try to 'wear spear', which is twohanded: It tells me: You need both hands to wield an emerald longsword.

Yes. I'm aware of it.

in vnum 271 in astral, one way door is trapping mobs, currently are 21 in this room
Cerdwyn

270 has same door phenomenon

Grrr. Thought that was fixed.
Mringasa

2004-08-29 22:36:41
Make ablution a targetable spell. Maybe the same requirements as send? 3 casters, must be resting, not castable in combat. Would assist berzerkers and also anyone with low mana.

No.
Grazz

2004-08-29 22:59:41
you can mutter in your sleep

Ok.
Teksu

Hero Archer skill: Tune: similar to real archery, you adjust the sight, tiller height, and centering of the bow until it is just right for YOU. increases HR by +2

Your moonlight arc has all that modern crap on it? Mine doesn't. I'm pretty sure the description doesn't mention them. Luckily it has MAGIC though.
Ritual

2004-08-30 11:09:23
add a public message that shows when one person follows another, as following someone is obvious to other people in the real world

Could be spammy and annoying. I foresee Lords wanting a filter for it, so let's just say no.
Chantara

2004-08-30 17:53:41
Add help lists_changeaddress and cross reference under help majordomo. This will hopefully prevent people from leaving their old email address on the list to bounce continually after they resubscribe to the same list with a new address.

Ok. lvl 1.
Nanaki

Teksu

how about you can examine stuff in shops before buying

But then how would shopkeepers fleece you?
Zigar

2004-08-31 03:21:48
Maybe we should have a week where exp is increased tenfold but mobs repop once per day, to inspire people to explore more?

A "drive players away" week? No thanks.
Burro

if I can reply to someone I cant see, why cant I reply lock onto them?

Because they might be trying to ignore you.
Shaft

2004-08-31 14:19:32
skill for gnomes "Tinker" it allows you to tinker with a weapon or armor.. armor you can increase base ac by adjusting the armor ever so slightly

Maybe for dwf. But I wouldn't want it just giving more ac. Maybe later when future developments are in.
Shaft

2004-08-31 15:04:22
PK have an option.. "PK Flag" when on, you can pk other people with pk option on, and use "Who pk" to find them! (config +/-pk)

I'm not enthused. Snikt?
Pliny

2004-08-31 17:38:37
anoint with no argument gives 'You do not see a here!'

Lvl 2. Should contain argument.
Blackout

Yes, yes, I'm a terrible coder. They should totally fire me. Or chain me to my desk.

wars: PVP fights that take place in an arena for such after 5 minutes the war begins and the winner gets some minor prize

Please stop sending quest stuff to ideas. They have a mailing list, you know.
Fuzzywomper

2004-08-31 21:56:04
change racial claw, so it is a hr and dr bonus

Okay. Lvl 2; racial claw gives a damage bonus. But only if unarmed.
Grazz

2004-08-31 23:29:03
skill name Trackless, Allows the user to try to lose anyone tracking it or chasing it. ie Fleeing from a mob allows user a chance to lose said mob by

Lvl 2; cover tracks, arc, ran. NOT automatic.
Caballero

"and" is replaced by "buy" if you fail trip/bash

Least... understandable... idea.... EVER!
Kaser

one of the things i liked about this mud was the creative help files..but lately it seems they're getting less creative, maybe a revamp of some help files.

How dare I not write interesting help files after spending hours on code, especially since I'm not doing the code blackout arbitrarily decided I should be doing? Quite the lazy sack of crap, aren't I?
Bryax

ogremages remort for ogres only, better stats than ogres and better spell casting abilities, description: A blueish green variety of ogre with much

Ogremage is stupid as a race in DnD and it'd be stupid here.

make autoassist quicker, as in if the tank attacks something you automaticlly attack it as well, eleminates any want for a KT ( kill trig ), thus

No.

lower fetch to 50, so people no longer use Dancing weapon triggers.

No.
Meno

Change the use of skills in 'help tingle' to 'spells/fletch', unless kick, bash, etc. get a tingle

They CAN, but the odds are astronomical.
Grazz

2004-09-01 23:11:50
A Chimerical griffon suddenly sidesteps and you crash to the ground! umm right after i failed it walked off. i would say thats a bit buggy

Lvl 2; if charge is used on a non-fighting mob, mob should aggie minotaur if he misses.
Levanadel

2004-09-02 02:19:21
with the qp catalog i want to get a dsd rog but it would turn into a dsd war, maybe make it so you could spend 200 or so more to make it race/class

You could just try EARNING a dsd rog.

No.

when an item fades, it removes nearly all flags except charity, which is understandable. can it remove nodrop/noremove as well. as removing the flags

No.
Insanity

2004-09-02 10:41:24
something for dragons, racial dragon fear an automatic debilitating effect giving -wis and -hr/dr plus increasing the chance of mob fleeing combat

Maybe when size goes in, as a function of size.
Rhodry

2004-09-02 13:16:43
make it so examining a fletch kit tells the highest arrow/bolt type it can make

You could just id it and compare levels.
Durloff

MAJOT IDEA: SAGE- A scroll type affect that increases the MAX on an item by NOT a % value, rather a flat rate add on.. important

Code limitation.
Bryax

in solace in the bar the mages names arent captialized when you damage them, but the other classes are. if this is to small of a detail, sorry

Duly ignored.
Tange

2004-09-02 22:01:43
rogues should be able to change the mob they're fighting if they're sneaky enough

Maybe when ranks go in.
Imladris

2004-09-03 01:11:56
a permanent bond between two people--you fight better with them in group, you can monitor them always, and you get hurt whent hey die? something

Cute. Hard to code.
KingDragon

rescue should automatically work on your moniter target

"Automatically work" could mean like 9 things here.

Make nchat and chat different colors. Newbies get confused between the two a lot and reply to something on chat that was said on nchat.

I don't think the color will help.
Cerdwyn

I don't use a trigger, and I never miss it. Look to your prompts, people.
Kingdragon

help sleep seems to show there is an ac penalty for sleeping maybe you should show it in score just to keep us aware of sleeping near aggies BAD!

I'm not actually sure it works any more.
KingDragon

2004-09-03 20:54:47
not to say you guys are realy wrong about something myth or something i heard, that kobolds are a decendants of dragons. so shouldnt they have the ability to remort into drgs?

Maybe our kobolds are different.
Waite

2004-09-03 21:36:24
since triggers that directly send commands to the mud are a no-no, how about a config option or some such that automatically attempts to group people that follow you?

How about if instead of expecting US to make up for the loss of triggers with tons of code, YOU guys do it yourselves.
Grokken

2004-09-03 21:38:16
A group all command to group everyone following you.

This is at least, easy to code. Lvl 2

I got bored of responding and cut the rest out. Do me a favor; if you think of an idea via discussion in group/bchat, also discuss which ONE of you is going to idea it, and then have ONLY that person idea it.
