General Discussion / Re: LoY quests

As we discussed, I left a lot of the LoY armor quests in because they are useful and because LoY is the plan after PoP as well.

I'm not opposed to putting in the Iksar one. Also on board to fix the others that are in but broken. Should be plenty of info to do that.

Don't think we have any Mac users. It's just an RoF2 client with some modified zones and such, so if you can make that work in WINE, I'd expect ours to also.

General Discussion / 2018!
« on: January 01, 2018, 07:55:02 PM »
Hey guys! I'm not dead. Just wanted to get that out of the way...

2017 was a crazy year for me. 2018 isn't going to be a ton better from the look of it, but I've got enough of a handle on it to finally push and get PoP finished.

I apologize for not getting this done before now. My sincere hope is to have T1 and hopefully T2 completed before the 3-year anniversary in February.

I made a Facebook post about this as well (https://www.facebook.com/vegarlson). For those of you smarter than me that don't have FB...

Happy New Year to all! Hope you all had a safe and warm ring-in to 2018!

As you may or may not be aware, I had some data loss on the forums a few months ago. I restored a backup from May, which didn't capture a lot of the bug reports and fixed that'd been put in. As such, I just marked all of them closed to kind of start clean.

If you notice something that needs attention, just put in a new one if you would. I'm going to begin working through little things again. Which leads me to the most important point...

We've currently removed the flag requirements on most of the T1 PoP zones.
- Plane of Valor (which was opened up a while back for testing, but not super widely communicated)
- Plane of Storms
- Crypt of Decay
- Plane of Torment

I beg you - please put in bug reports for out of era items and other issues you normally would. Loot, spawns, pathing, difficulty, etc. Clearly I'm not going to be super militant about what drops or doesn't during the testing phase, so you're on your honor to not abuse it.

Level restrictions do still apply for these zones.


Thank you all for your continued support!

I'm also in the process of uploading a new, fully updated client. That will be done by tomorrow and should help at least with making sure the file versions are correct. :)

Run the patcher twice in a row. Like, one right after the other. The first time it will update itself, the 2nd time you'll run the updated one.

Hmm, that's strange. So just pulls up an empty server list? Did you run the batch file twice?

As the subject says, I have implemented the new AC/stat changes on the test server.

What does this mean?
The way combat calculations are done has been corrected upstream in the EQEmu server to do calculations just like Live. As a result, the existing NPC stats (which are very often inflated) are incorrect for the new code. This currently would make most NPCs crazy difficult. So the stats have to be adjusted for NPCs across the board.

What do we need from you?
Basically we need as much comparison data as we can get. Melee parses, spell parses, etc. The goal is to maintain nearly the same level of difficulty as the existing server.

Where is the test server?
The name of the test server is Shakedown Street. It should show up in the server list for you.

Other important things to note.
  • Please be aware this affects any and all NPCs. If you're wondering if something needs tested, it does.
  • Please be specific when comparing. Using parses are the only real way to have workable data.
  • Remember to turn those logs on!

Copying your configs
You can either use the in-game settings to copy your UI layout, hotkeys, etc. or you can copy them manually by renaming the files. To use this method:
Code: [Select]
Copy your UI_<Character>_vegarlson.ini file to UI_<Character>_shakedown.ini
Copy <Character>_vegarlson.ini to <Character>_shakedown.ini
This should get you up and running.

Reporting your findings
I have created an "AC Changes" category on the Bug reporting system . Please report your findings in tickets within that system. Anecdotal data is not helpful! PLEASE BE DETAILED!
You can find Gamparse at EQResource along with a guide on using it.

Thank you!

Please do report bug reports so we can get this zone humming. It's got a lot of ins and outs, and your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
