Modern World Started
« on: April 14, 2014, 11:08:22 am »
I changed over the V5 theme on Friday from Fantasy to Modern.
Got a basic Modern world going but it still lacks any tradeskills and weapons.
The map is 1000x1000 for now with roads, sewers, buildings and zombies.
Still a ton of work to do but it is a pretty good start I think.

Was getting this before but I thought it was because the server was down, but now it's still happening when I run Launcher.exe and pressing "Update"

"Error getting file!"
"The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive"
Shoop!

I get that sometimes too...figured it meant the server was down for a while(usually have issues connecting to normal RPGWO server list when it happens)

If either of you use Norton, that will block it.

But regardless its an antivirus problem.

Try running as Administrator.

Hm, yeah I do happen to use Norton. But even when I told it to ignore that folder completely, disabled auto-protect and ran the launcher as admin, still gives the same issue. It worked before while using Norton though.

Maybe you need to mark the launcher.exe as safe? And also rpgwo.com as safe?
Or, maybe the Vorth nano-tech got into your cpu?

Zombies seem way too weak. Gonna up their attack skill and give them poison for next update.

Also working on some weapons like hammer and knife to be foraged in places plus some food. Still figuring out the forage system though.

Also been distracted from any real progress since I been reading the Divergent books  :)
Should be back on track now though.

reading the Divergent books

Any good?

I don't know if it is Norton stopping the process from running, but my I still can't run the launcher. I told Norton to exclude anything in that folder, told it that the launcher.exe was safe, disabled it, ran the launcher as admin.. same thing every time. I'm not gonna remove Norton though. Not even convinced that's the problem since I launcher v5 several months ago just fine.

Divergent is just as good as Hunger Games but it still a teen level book which means it is short and double spaced and only took a week to read each.

What about enabling HTTP and FTP downloads from rpgwo.com? That might be a IE thing to set or a firewall setting.

they only seem weak til you get trapped between houses and run out of stamina ;D

also how is land claiming going to work in the new system since it is mostly prebuilt?

Any ETA for foraging?

Working on it now. Got some food foragable in a market. Want to add a hardware store so we can get some tools/weapons like a hammer before I update. Maybe tomorrow I will have something updated.

they only seem weak til you get trapped between houses and run out of stamina ;D
Yeah, it was either add a lot more to urban areas or make them harder. Either way, being in the urban areas should be difficult with no weapons.
Also, I am gonna add a newb area, a separate map with tutorial crap and such.
And I will have safe zones with a resurrection stone that will protect players. They will be spread out on the map, like 1 per 2-3 sectors.

also how is land claiming going to work in the new system since it is mostly prebuilt?

I was thinking about Vorth Credit being the currency since they are in control of everything now. The nano-machines in your head would keep track of what you do and give/take credits. Vorth want entertainment so whatever thrills them would earn credit.

Earning:
- killing stuff
  - zombies = 5 point
  - vorth = 50 points
- donating/selling stuff to vorth, like on an "altar"
  - food = 1 point
  - tools = 5 points
- building

Spending:
- land claim = -100 VC
- player killing = -5 VC
- buying Vorth tech
  - healing kits, nano-repair tools
  - weapons, armor

That is basically the idea I have running around in my head.

EDIT: Oh, land claiming with all the prebuilt stuff would only allow residential structures or empty land to be claimed. Non-residences and roads would remain "community" owned and everyone could do whatever to it including destroy forage spots completely, maybe.

idea...

some people maybe oto lazy to forage material to build house.. what if each piece (item) like 'ew wall' and 'door' is assigned vorth-credit value, and a -100 VC = empty land claim, but you pay eg +5 vc per 'wall', +10 vc per window, +25vc per door on the plot "prebuilt", so you don't need to build a basic house yourself

Well, the map is full of pre-built houses and buildings that player will be able to claim. But we will see how this VC thing works out.

Level 5! Gah, I am just level 4... been coding to much :)
I got some basic weapon ready for next update which should be soon. Like knife, hammer, etc., some household items. Just working on the Foraging thing still. It is a key part of the world so I want to take my time and get it right.
