It was discovered that the WAI 984r's damage was bugged, so the weapon was not performing as expected.
This has been fixed, the WAI 984r will now do it's correct damage.
Fixed a typo in chargen. Thank you new player for reporting this! FYI, now that you are a player, you can use @typo to report typos.
@PAGELENGTH HELP FILE
Updated this help file to better call out that it is a deprecated command that we have kept for folx who really want it but that we do not fully support and have no plans to support its usage with things like menus.
JUMPING IN COMBAT
No more jumping off/across things just because you stop attacking first while still being attack by someone else.
These are no longer 2.1 meters long. They are a more appropriate height.
YOU CAN SELECT EURO IN CHARGEN NOW
If your character is smart enough you can select a secondary language in chargen. Technically you could already select Euro, but it showed up in the list as selected by 'E' but when you typed this it would select English which everyone already is fluent in. You had to use your IRL int to realize Euro would be selected with 'u' even though the game didn't tell you that. Now it tells you properly.
RIPPER SUCCESS MESSAGES
Rippers will now see a success message when they rip cyber successfully.
The 'news' notification on login is something many people just ignore because we haven't had new news in 4 years mainly because we use the BGBB. I've made it so people won't get a 'there is new news' reminder when they login if the new news is older than a year old.
I've updated helped FOIG to better state the responsibility that older players have when helping newer players, and what is/is not expected.
FOIG/FOIC REMINDER FOR OLDER CHARACTERS
Older characters will get a reminder at 3 months, 6 months and 1 year that states: "Do you spend a lot of time on Game-Help? If you are answering questions and you find yourself saying 'FOIG' or 'FOIC' and that is it. Please stop. Read 'help foig'. And understand that giving reasonable, empathetic answers, even if you are unable to provide the information someone needs, is how you do your part to help new players. Thank you!"
Hopefully this will help to adjust the culture around this, and reduce some of the frustrations that newer characters encounter when they are told FOIC.
All stores at Cordoba now accept cred chips. I've also asked the builders to audit all topside shops to make sure these are setup properly to accept cred chips.
If you are unaware, attempting to purchase something from a shop that accepts credit (visible from looking at the shelves and seeing the price in 'credit' instead of 'chyen') is possible with an unlocked cred chip on you.
I've updated this so if you enter an unspecific name it doesn't tell you all the possible people you might mean since this kinda leaks IC info.
FALL DAMAGE DEATH / WAKEUP MESSAGE
For a while if you took serious damage and were KO'd possibly from a fall, and then died, you'd see a message about jumping back to your feet, except you're still dead. This should be fixed. Thank you to all the memento corpies that were jumping to your deaths to help me test this.
LOOK TB RELATED TO CYBERWARE
Sometimes garbage objects make it into the cyberware matrix of people or PCs. This was causing a tb when you looked at them. I added some logic to deal with the garbage so it doesn't cause future TBs.
TV WAS BROKEN BUT NOW ITS FIXED
I broke tv last week editing some props, and didn't realize it for several days but I fixed it. So TV works again.
MULTIPLE GRAPPLING HOOKS IN SAME ROOM
I don't know how this went unreported for so long-- but there was a bug where if you had two of the same grappling hooks in the same room you couldn't ascend either. It was a simple fix, but super weird that it's been like this for 10 years and we didn't notice.
How damage is done to vehicles has been updated to allow for many more systems to integrate with vehicles.
Vehicles now require their electronics in order to start! ..Maybe some don't though, so you'll have to FOIC to learn more. ;)
These systems are on the path to exciting new things coming along the pipe. Keep an eye on this space.
