Patch 08/14: Ships

Patch 08/14: Ships

Postby Japhet » Thu Aug 13, 2009 8:15 am

The 10th mine is now here: Ships. The mine is located on a new, far-away island (see map). You'll need a ship to get there.

Also in this patch:
  • 3 new professions (Sea Trader, Sea Pirate, Sea Hunter).
  • Trash-on-find option per-item destroys pesky yellows before they make it out of the mine.
  • Updated help with info on ships, explosives, gadgets and professions.
  • Hunters no longer see "Pillage" flags.
  • New land battle view for vehicles describes your battle outcomes.
  • Vehicle pillage messages now say "3g, 7g loan" instead of "3g, 10g loan"
  • Vehicles messages now link to vehicle status.

The Cannon mine is next...

And boy is the raft slow. 5km/hr it's going to be over a 2 day trip!

And you can't see or access the ship menu unless you're using a Ship profession? (/sigh, of course I have trading vehicles out. :))

-----------
Possibly random observation - my land vehicle list is now all out of order. Previously I had three groups of three types of vehicles, with themed names (All starting with F for one group, R for another, V for the third). They ended up grouped together in alphabetical order.

Currently, my list is all over the place. Not obvious what it's using to make it's order now. It's not alphabetical, vehicle type, or distance remaining to travel.

I'll toss this over in bugs just in case.....
Uh oh!

What? What do you see?

Something that's still less deadly than a red dragon's stomach.

That was not as reassuring as you might have imagined.

Geometrically speaking, there's no way the water routes are as short as they claim to be. 450 km from cissna to harmond? look at the route it's trying to take... Someone should try to come up with a to-scale version of the map. Maybe make the island more horseshoe shaped.

Just wondering if this is working right. One of my unicycles has engaged in several combats today (gotta add more time before I can switch to trying ships, after all :lol: ), and when I click on the "lost" link for the most recently concluded fight, I get:


"Battle Report
The ship's crew of had a strength of and saw no reason to fight the enemy's crew of strength .

You lost. "
Uh oh!

Soonest someone will be there is who ever left earlier today from Cissna (a raft or two sold before I bought mine there this morning) and that will be late tomorrow night or midnight Saturday.

You can't tell on the map, but those roads are really windy.
