Quote by: A Bottle of Water I think I'd rather have more little quests like Mr. Stern's quest. Just to go visit Outposts and explore new things and such.


Your wish is granted too. Go and have a little poke around in Cyber City 404 - there's a new random event, that triggers another (not quite so random) event.



You have made me slush in pleasure, good sir! Thank you.
However, it would be interesting to see statistics of how many people picked each option.
Just out of my bubbling curiosity and such.

Excuse me while I go squirt some misbehaving cats.

If I could change one small thing on the island, I would reduce the tie between the distraction system and the main game to only a link. And therefore, People will be able to check and answer distractions without logging in and wasting a day even when they don't want to.

On a second thought. That's too big of a change. And it doesn't happen so often anyway. II is perfect Big Grin

No seriously. I bet I could find something I'd really want to change. Just give me a coupla' days...Or a week.

Thank you.

Oh but that's countered by Reverb's mortal enemy!
Mortal enemy, in this case, refers to everybody else of course.


But no really. Reverb always has been making my favorite charactersBig Grin

You could have your distractions sent to your email. I don't know if you can answer them from there, but at least you'd know if you had any, and be able to read them.

Apparently I am the spokesman for distractions by email. And my wishes (cig hotkey and quests) have been granted already. Thanks, CMJ!

In the hall of fame, can we get the display after every ranking that says if we're in the top 8% or 57% or wherever we are for all of the rankings, instead of just select ones?


Also, can you install a button that lets me tell my roommate he's a terrible singer without hurting his feelings? Big Grin

Portable soundproof room?


Better yet, get him one of these:


If it doesn't block out the sound, it might keep him distracted from singing.

Hell, if I got me one of those, I'd never be around to hear him singing anyway.

oh, and, just because I'm curious, can you add a place where we can see a clan's average DK rank?

That already exists.

Hall of Fame -> Clan DKs.

That's set up into a spreadsheet of total clan DKs, a clan's ranking as far as DKs go, how many people are IN the clan and the average number of DKs per clan member.

I should specify. This is what I'm looking for, except on a clan basis instead of individual contestant basis:

But really, Tyr. That's the exact thing I'd want, Since not everybody have an e-mail. I can't answer them through e-mail, and will have to wait until later, when(If it's more than a week) The other person forgot what they're saying, mostly.

When you're travelling, the 'V' key moves you southwest -- unless you're on top of a city. Oddly, I seem to leave most cities to the southwest. I hit 'V' and *pop*, I'm back in the city. A very small annoyance, but it makes me feel stupid. I would be pleased to kick in an additional contribution to The Island to have this annoyance removed.



AND THAT'S FIXED AS WELL. The hotkey is now "O" for Outpost.



Thank you, Caveman! Additional contribution is on its way.

And I've been running past outposts all day. Will take some getting used to, but at least movement's a bit smoother across the map.


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

I love the fixes. Lurve them. Yes, I occasionally run on autopilot and step past an outpost or hit V while I'm in the bank, but it makes sense, and I feel so much safer not always hitting that damn hotkey for smoking. THANK YOU!

The one small change I'd like to see: make the FAQ link point to the Rookie Advisory, and archive the current one - since it's mostly for season one things and doesn't really answer most of the things people ask.

I always found it a bit odd that you can't Travel onto the world from a jungle. You can go directly INTO a jungle on the outpost square, but you can never leave the jungle back into the world without going into the Outpost first. It's not a big issue like the Cigarette hotkey was, because the only time I ever even consider this fact is when I go into an outpost's jungle solely for a quest monster, find and kill it, and then want to leave the jungle.

But still. Conceptually odd.

especially considering you can go right into the jungle from the world. I was on my way over to post the same thing.

also, would it be possible to get a different "to the death" key for morons like me who accidentally doubletap "t" when looking for trouble, or just aren't paying attention when traveling north? Oops!

If I could change one thing, it would be to change specials so that they don't get off when you have 50 characters left.


I make the many models of a mutant individual. To make them I use vegetables, animals, and minerals. From robot bugs to zombie bears to many singing barnacles.
