As requested a while ago, I created a new unified Helegear Sea map that
includes all information scattered in other maps.
If anyone finds an error in this or my other maps, please send me a note.
If you think there is a non-trivial area without a good map, I'm willing to
take the challange.

Hi Kristoff,

You can backtrack and give another gold scale to the shadow dragon (don't panic
if you don't get it on the first try, you'll get it eventually).

There was no harm done to your goal otherwise, since nothing updated.

IMMS: I would suggest making the sorcerer stationary, since he does use a
makewait program, as Kristoff noted.

If you figured this out already then just ignore me :P
Bug in Scarred Lands Goal
Note #27665
posted on General
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 @ 20:49
It appears that there is a bug in scarred lands goal.
When I gave the carved bird figurine to the sorcerer,
he responded. But the task
didn't update
The sorcerer no longer has the figurine and
the shadow dragon will no longer give me a new one
meanwhile, I can't go to the next task either
my understanding is that the sorceror is supposed to discover
there is no essence in the statue
but that is not the message I got
as you can see here:
https://bit.ly/2NdjOwx
I know lots of people have done this goal
The only reason I can think of that the next step didnt trigger
is because the sorcerer moved out of the room
so there needs to be some way to backtrack if that happens
as is, there is now no way for me to finish the goal

I can use some of my time during the week to try to handle it. The ideal mud
time for me is between 11:30 and 13:00 on THU/TUE. I can talk with the other
run leaders and try to adequate a run during this time.

Remember that we're talking about inferno and genie. Both runs need 16-20 full
prepared T9s to be able to finish it, depending on a lot of factors. I can lead
it during these hours, but people need to understand that I won't TRY inferno
if I don't feel we can finish it and block a night run. Genie is easier since
we can't go past the maze if we don't have numbers and it is reset easily.

This is not an accurate representation of reality. In the past 3 weeks

PIRATE SOCIALS

Sunday, September 16, 2018 @ 13:35
Feeling the call of the sea, but not taken with the pirate's life?  Do you
just admire a certain pirate from afar?  This is the opportunity for you.

With international talk like a pirate day coming up on Sept 19th, HooK wants
everybody to have the ability to talk more like a pirate... and for that, the
mud needs more pirate socials.

What you need to do: Make a pirate social that doesn't suck.
Send it on personal to 'hook' for review, and if we like it (even a little),
we'll pay for it.  You get the credit, we pay the bill!

This offer is good through end of day Sept 19th, or Sept 22nd if you're too
drunk to send a message before then.

Arr!

Island of Time racist mobs
Note #27643

Sunday, September 9, 2018 @ 00:10
Hi - had to run to Island of Time to finish a quest.
Ran into racist stereotype mobs such as: Fuddin Coonman, 
Ratty Headman "Yes, beady eyed...  And that's definitely 
a tail behind it. And those claws and whiskers!  
It's a giant rat!  Probably has a horde of gold somewhere.", 
and lots of mobs with descriptions like "You look at this 
critter with disgust, determining that it is definitely not human. 
 One can only wonder when was the last time water and soap actually 
touched its warty, repulsive skin.  You wonder if it has leprosy...
The stench is nauseating and you find yourself offering gold to the 
filthy creature if it will just go away." 
I feel like this kind of edgelord style racism is worthless and 
out of place in this game, where I've found it to be otherwise 
inclusive and respectful. Thanks for listening.

Re: Search and Destroy v2.0.0 is out!
Note #27636

Reply to: Note 27635 posted by Starling

I reuploaded 2.0.0 to fix an oversight regarding SH campaigns.  If you like
to cp at SH you should re-download it.  The problem was that at SH, you get
different messages from 'cp check' about taking a new campaign and these were
not tracked.

The change enables auto-noexp to take account of your being 200/SH and removes
the need to 'xset noexp 0' to turn it off.  After you remort it will start
working normally again and your TNL cutoff will be whatever you set before.

It also means the cp level readout should be colored correctly depending on
whether or not you can take a new cp.

It did require some rework and while it seems fine to me (levelling) I can't
test the SH part at this time.  If it works, let me know.  If not, definitely
let me know.

Thanks!

The S&D beta phase ended successfully and version 2.0.0 is now official.

As usual the link to download it is in my whois and finger info.

I still need to redo the help/documentation, most likely it will be online,
but until then refer to the help for 1.3.5 because they are basically the
same.  The main feature here is the single-plugin merge itself, and all the
good things that entails.  Also, I made the GUI command buttons change
color when clicked.  I like it.

Details are in the readme.

Thanks for all of the support, help, advice, and testing! :)

Good morning everyone,

I have just uploaded the latest beta revision (beta 9) for S&D v2.0.

The number of bug and problem reports has been low.  I take this as a good
sign.  Please send me a report of any and all problems you encounter while
using the beta.  The best way to reach me is via notes.

In the absence of any breaking problems I expect beta to end with a v2.0.0
release within 1 week.

Thank you all for all your ongoing support! :D

Search and Destroy v2.0 beta
Note #27629
posted on General
Friday, July 27, 2018 @ 06:27
Good morning everyone,

For the first 10 years of its life, Search and Destroy was a set of 3 plugins,
and without going into details I defined that as version 1.  As long as it
followed that general format, it would be version 1 regardless of any other
updates.

Search and Destroy no longer follows that format, and as such we now have a
version 2.  This is a marked improvement, because unlike before, it's a single
plugin, with all the benefits that entails.

Search and Destroy v2.0 is currently in beta, available via my whois/finger
info.  If you wouldn't mind checking it out and reporting any crashes, bugs,
or other issues to me, that would be great.  So far as I know, it works and
is stable enough, based on initial test results.  Feel free to break it any way
you can, and let me know when you do.

Please be advised, that as a beta version it's expected that there will be some
problems, e.g. crashes, glitches, things not looking right, or things that
don't work at all.  Let me know when you find them.

I'm looking to take it out of beta in a couple of weeks, depending on feedback.

Good luck,

Starling

the obvious solution is to fork the source tree, develop both options
in tandem, and then allow the next maintainer to worry about all the
bugs that would be introduced by re-integrating the two trees.

Due to some misconduct involving a wetsuit, two penguins, and some other
things I can't talk about (ongoing investigation) I was forced to return
from my antarctic vacation ahead of schedule.  Travel expenses non-
refundable, of course, but at least the trip was memorable.

Search and Destroy updates are in the works but I'd like some advice on
how best to proceed.  Basically, I'm looking at two options:

1) Maintain the status quo (three separate plugins) and just keep fixing
problems as they're found.  This would mean 1.3.6, and so on.

2) Search and Destroy 2.0.0, which would be a single plugin built by merging
the existing three.  The benefits with this would be removing a lot of
duplicated / redundant code as well as the cross-plugin chatter that is
at the root of several ongoing complications.

Option 1 is easy, familiar, and fairly straightforward, but has issues.

Option 2 is probably not easy, will be a fundamental change, but would
ultimately solve the issues with keeping three plugins on track.

What do you all want?

It's not, except how do you reconcile that with someone like me still having
channels?  Unless she did something worse, but knowing her and knowing myself I
have a hard time believing it.  But I wasn't there, so maybe she did.

I'm with you in that bad behavior needs to be stopped but I think DjVoltron is
also right to advocate and question as he did.  What you did for me, taking
the risk and putting it on me to do right is one of the kindest things anyone
has done for me, ever, and I guess what I'm getting at is that I would want
others to have that too.

Abe logs all, so any player can search for what was said and 
determine for themselves whether the content was racist, other 
'ist, against rules, etc.  if they care enough.

what is not seen is private interactions with imm in says, tells,
and boards.  I would bet your friend exacerbated the problem 
in her comms with the staff or Lasher.  These are not made public 
so you just have to trust the right decision was made.

And sure, the Power makes mistakes sometimes, but if a player 
falls in the forest of the player population and makes no 
noise, does anyone notice or care?

Nope.

Hah. Ever hear of an advocate? What's wrong with standing
up for your friends? I'm not presuming anything, I simply
said there may not be a reminder or way to know unless
they wrote a note to themselves or just have a great
memory. I don't know the inner workings of the command
nor do I care to. Just saying the time the ban has
been on for the offense is a tad insane. Yeah I have one
side of the story, that's all that available. If I had more
to go on maybe my opinion would be different, but I doubt it.
Like I said people constantly say worse and nothing happens.
Sure Tzad can speak for herself, and so can the imm staff.

As much as Tzad talks about it, I'm pretty sure the Imms are still very aware
of her channel ban, so I wouldn't presume to think the Imms are forgetful or
negligent in their roles and just needs a "reminder" to remove it.
 
Not that I'm against her getting channels back, but I don't think it's anyone's
position to say whether time has been served or not. You only hear one side of
the story, and the Imms typically do not provide their side of the story
because they don't have to. So while in your eyes it may seem unjustified, it
may very well be justified in someone else's eyes. The only one who should
really be speaking for her should be herself. She can email Lasher if she has
no other way of communication (notes, tells, channels, etc).
