I'd LOVE to be able to use the Hunters Lodge items out of the lodge. Change your title/colouring on the fly when doing a scene in a building somewhere? Ten degrees of awesome sauce!

Lemme just bring this back from the depths of the thread. As the man of a thousand characters, I'd like this too. Really much.

So...yeah...Fourthing.

On topic, and not in-pyramid...

It would be nice, I think, if we could see how many logs or stones we have in our packs when stonecutting/logging. I know there's always the option of going to your inventory and seeing, but it would be convenient, especially if we know how many we want. Sometimes, when you're counting, you hit a badnav where it doesn't do it and takes you back to the screen, and you think you have another one when you don't.

In the works. Smile

It's a bit more complicated than it should be. The game could really use an extra column in the Accounts table for "They were doing this, send them back there once you're done." There's the Restorepage column, but that's used for other stuff.

Oh... another tiny little thing: the formatting for your display name is (Title)(Space)(Name), I'll assume. Could there be a way for the game to detect if your title is blank, and thus just display your name as just (Name) instead of (Space)(Name)? So that space isn't there in front of it?

It's a very small thing, I realize, but it's slightly distracting and annoying, and it doesn't strike me as that tough of a fix? Or maybe it is. I don't know!

Can we please have an "Are you sure you want to do this?" screen before the Watcher lowers your rank? I just accidentally set my rank to 1 (at level 14!) for the third DK in a row because of misclicking.

Why do you even visit that screen for three DKs? D:

It's just under the go back button when you ask the watcher about your favor. To be fair, I could very much see how that could be accidentally clicked, and while I haven't done it myself... yeah, I'd be kinda annoyed.

Also: scratch my request up there entirely. I'd much rather see the really annoying (is it just me who has a pet peeve about underlined links? It can't be just me. Please tell me it's not just me T_T) underlined names/links(distractions, petitions, etc) on the default skins go away. They look so out of place. I realized that's what was annoying me about the space before the name when it came to titleless characters; the outline stretches an extra space to the left and it sets off my horrible OCD about this kind of thing like nothing else.

Oh but you see. The "Question the watcherblahblah"Button takes two lines.
The "Ask Watcher to reduceyourrankorwhatever" Takes one line, 75% chance of hitting the upper line when clicking randomly Big Grin

Besides that, I always use Keyboard when I'm in the failboat, makes it easier to do cage fights, get adrenaline, and get out while eating or doing something with my right hand.

And for those (myself included) who prefer the mouse to the keyboard: Click-N-Type Virtual Keyboard


Thank you.

The Abandoned Factory. And being a Robot. Two things that really, really don't mix. Being a Robot is actually heaps of fun, but the problem about being in the AF is that you don't have an option to cool your systems down.

It's near-impossible to make it through the AF as a Robot if you run into any kind of monster and have to fight it, because you'll overheat and lose HP in the fight, and probably die. If you run into TWO monsters, hello, FailBoat, because there's no chance to cool down in between. I know cooling heals HP, which is an unfair advantage in the AF, but it'd be so great if you could cool down without healing in the AF. Then you could actually survive the Factory as a Robot, especially since the Factory's in CC.

Exactly.

Another thing: could the system keep track of whether we were sleeping somewhere when there's a new day? Right now it seems to just give the stamina bonus if you use the refresh button on the sleeping page, so if you, say, click on the "Go to World Map" button to initiate the new day it won't give the extra stamina.

You'd think this would be simple, but honestly this is really more trouble than it's worth.

2 things, which I mentioned to CMJ the other day in banter.
1) The ability to name dwelling exits/doors something other than the room they are leading into. For example, your in... Hallway and one of your exit choices is... Strange door, which then leads to the room named Laboratory (r something)

2) the ability to create exits to rooms that are already built. Example:

I build this...
Room2
|
Room1 -- Room3

and want to link Room2 with Room3 as well. (great for mazes and such where you can link back to the same room you just left *evil grin* or other buildings with.. circular hallways, or multiple paths to the same destination.

I believe these have been mentioned before, but no harm in bringing it up again. And the GERMans have been hoping for the second part since dwellings were announced. You can only imagine the Bingo Hall after all this...

Can we have a way to enter what we want to change the Head-Mounted Laser's power setting to instead of having to do it one kilowatt at a time?

It's not bad if you remember to turn off your overclocking before you enter. The trick being that I used to forget all the time, and even if you remember, you then have to turn it back on when you leave... it would be nice if OC was disabled entirely (including heat buildup, of course!) while in the factory.
