v5_1624

May 16th, 2020

  • Dear players, you will notice some very substantial changes this update to Ticker Square and Ring 100. Most notably, there is now an additional ring-gate that connects Ticker Square directly with Ring 100. The intent of these changes are:
    • 1) To reduce loading times for entering Ticker Square
    • 2) To make things a little more straight forward for new PCs arriving to Ring 100
    • 3) To gesture at some lore relating to some of Ticker Square's Mercantile contacts arriving through its 'postern gate' that connects to Ring 100.
    • 4) Make sure to preserve the Open Door as the second best tavern of Ring 99, full of traffic and life.
  • Please let me know about any bugs, issues, misleading dialogue, or other concerns. Feedback welcome. (DM Howlando)
  • These changes should generally be considered as 'always being there'

February 6th 2020

  • A new system to manage merchant stalls has been developed by a member of the community:

A new Shopkeeping System has been added, and the old one should be mostly removed. It works a little differently. Now you will be able to select as one of your Player Tools (In the crafting menu) as "Manage Shop Inventory." Using this on an item in your pack will add the item to a registry token that will be created one time called Shop Inventory Token. Using this token, you'll be able to see your list of wares, set prices, and remove the item from the registry. Once you have set up this token, click on a shop stall sign to rent it as normal, and instead of dumping all your things into a box, your wares will be instantly displayed (not removed from your inventory!) in the catalogue. Only items that are in your inventory will be displayed, and once you sell something you can click on the sign and 'refresh' your listing to update it.

Note, that wares will still display in your token registry until you remove them from it. It is advised assigning the playertool to a quickslot to quickly add all your wares to a registry with a simple FButton click, then go through and price them all. Please report any bugs that might have been undiscovered in the testing phase!
