Before the upcoming wipe on Thursday, I’ve got a few updates for you Bumfuzzlers. Mostly they’re just tweaks and adjustments, but important to recognize nonetheless! Here we go!
I’ve made a few updates to the forums. Here’s a couple of the updates:
- You can now configure a signature
- Main forum page now shows forum statistics
- You can now send private messages
- Under avatar each user now shows data
With my recent changes to population of resources, animal counts may have been nerfed a bit more than I wanted them to be on Modtopia. Thanks to a heads up from WRecKLeSS I checked the numbers and decided to bump animals up 50%. For instance, bear counts were limited to 18 and now they’re 27. This is about the same increase you can expect for other animals.
VIP Class Autokits
Last week I trimmed the autokit fat for VIPs on Modtopia, but I left Allegiance, Veteran and Legitimate autokits alone. Now I’ve made a few adjustments to avoid having players spawn with too many items they may not want. For those of you unsure what I’m talking about, the autokits are what you spawn with. Depending on your loyalty points, you’ll spawn with different items. For instance, Allegiance doesn’t spawn with the same items as VIP and Legitimate doesn’t spawn with items as good as Veteran.
Thanks to Orion for the feedback.
M249 VIP Kit
Earning 10,000 loyalty points (/loyalty) will get you VIP status and being a VIP on Modtopia will get you access to the M249 kit. Well, it appears that I had a typo on the website stating the command was /kit m249 when it was really /kit vip_m249. I’ve since fixed that error thanks to ATaXiA. I personally would recommend using /kit anyway as it shows an easier graphical menu of all the kits.
This Thursday, I’m going to wipe the Modtopia server at around 8:00pm EST. This time it might take me slightly longer because I am going to reinstall everything on the server and test many of the plugins one by one – especially those that have been giving us trouble. I’m thinking it might be an hour or maybe 90 minutes or so.
I’m eager to get this done also because I have a couple of new goodies coming your way! 🙂 I want to start with a good foundation before moving forward with those.
Thanks as always for all the feedback Bumfuzzlers. Keep it coming!
