Reply to: Note 17758 posted by Toneloc It's working as intended, just not as you expected, I think? You're probably looking for the disenchant command. Illu/sol/res flags, once added, can't be removed with setflag, and prevent (re)adding stats if the base flag (e.g., hum) is toggled and enchant spell recast. (reposted with clarification)

Reply to: Note 39170 posted by Bitties >It seems kind of petty to just sit around inside city-limits Quite petty, whether 2se of recall or 2s8e in Mesolar. Personally don't have a problem with the whole city being safe, or that specific room, but don't see the point when Dexx can just as easily move w to the square that is safe, too.

Reply to: Note 39139 posted by Lasher Mix of thoughts, depending on the piece of gear involved. Boots and, to lesser extent aura, could/would have low stats for level. Amulet does too but don't think that really counts. Bracers have war's iron grip and gloves have many class' dual wield, the high stats will prob almost always be better and if you find something that is better, you'll prob already have these skills to not worry about adding to other gear. BP doesn't have an ability to swap, just add stats/resists, on top of already high enhanced gear sounds like too much. So either it'll always be used (crappy stuff like boots) or a sink to make an already improved item even better. Sounds nice for newer players to have that option but hte most that would be used would be by older players that don't need the extra boosts.

Quiet pc systems
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 @ 12:10
Can't seem to get my system to cooperate enough with QFan/Speedfan to keep it as quiet as I'd like. May upgrade it semi-soon; what should I be looking for? Does liquid cooling work well, is it only partially supplementing the cooling process or does it mean it's basically fanless? What kind of upkeep is needed for water-cooling? Otherwise, recommendations for other things to keep a system nice and quiet? I had some cheap fans that I swapped out for something a bit more pricey when the ball bearings started rattling, but don't really know what to look for in the (lack of) noise department for hardware.

Reply to: Note 39053 posted by Xyndor Can see both sides. Can't just not code in features that scripts will abuse, or basically nothing will get coded in. However, I don't see the benefit of this over the ability to more easily abuse it. Areas usually have a limit of 50 mobs and maybe you'll see 8-10 diff ones in a room. Three or four might be kill targets. It's not hard to remember a few keywords, like "3 finch, parak, 2 crow". The order would also change any time a mob moved into or out of the room, so either you're in a busy area where this will happen regularly, or a less dense area where it wouldn't be hard to remember the 2-3 keywords you need. It just seems way more abuseable for scripts adding to a kill-next list by scanning and sorting on align vs. remembering the few things you need, espec once you learn an area and its inhabitants.

Clan donation rooms
Friday, February 2, 2018 @ 18:08
I tend to donate lightly-enhanced gameload stuff I find. If it went to the clan donation room, it'd probably just disappear since in-clan has better, so I tend to just gdonate instead. So, why not have anything in clan donation rooms go to global donation rooms instead of expiring, and then only expire when the timer is out in the global donation room? Would give the people that might use it more often a chance to see it rather than it just disappearing.

Not a lot of uses, but for those few random potions that have a spellup spell or two and also poison, teleport, etc., 'sip' would randomly choose a single spell out of the potion's available spells. Would still consume the entire potion like quaffing does. Could do similar with glancing or skimmin scrolls.
Wednesday, January 31, 2018 @ 10:41
Toggle would remove the separate "You receive 60 'rare kill'" line from exp output and add it similar to exprate ("You receive 200+60 experience."). Think it should stay visible even with this on to recognize it was a rare kill, tho, rather than fully added to the total like with exprate on.

stun & quaff

Was just mid-fight and got stunned. Had two attacks and get/quaff heal stacked and the two attacks didn't go thru but the quaff/heal did in the same round (stun usually lasts a round?). IMO if you're stunned, you shouldn't be able to (at least) quaff, maybe not even get.

Identify & avg damage
Saturday, January 27, 2018 @ 12:49
Have the average damage from temper, bonuses from enhanced eq, etc., show up as a stat mod like +4 strength in identify. For example, using temper and seeing Avg Dam 420 (+40) is a bit ambiguous- is it 380 without temper, or currently 460? Similar if it's normally 380 and had enhancement rolls add more, it's not easy to tell how much.

I'm sure many others are like me and had autoloot off before the gameload eq update but now have it on. However, there is still a lot of other junk I don't care about picking up. I know 'sell all' will get that glass of elvish wine along with the armor I did want to grab that didn't get any enhancement, but it'd be a bit less spammy to just not grab it in the first place. One of two thoughts for it- either a simple toggle like lootworn, that only grabs the appropriate items types (weapon, armor, portal, etc), or expanding autoloot to a table where you can turn on/off each item type separately.
