At any rate, I think it would make way too many unnecessary forum accounts - think of all the people with many, many alts, or the people who sign up for the game and never make it past Corporal Punishment, or the people who just don't care about the Enquirer.



Not an expert either, but I'm fairly sure you're not making any unnecessary forum accounts--you're eliminating all forum accounts. It would be the very same Island account.



You've clearly shown how much you're not an expert.

Gifting items between alts is a minor problem I've had as well.
I think that one of the reasons is people who create alts to rate monsters purely for the SP, which they then use to buy things to gift to mains. I might be completely wrong here.

This isn't that hard to get round, you just have to spend that extra cent and go via a third party. Mementos you could drop on and pick up off the map.

So yes. To me this is a minor irritation, but not a real problem.

I imagine the thought process necessary behind linking forum accounts with game accounts is something being saved for Season 3. I get the impression that's going to be a bit of a HULK SMASH sorta deal, anyway, so why not make it site-wide? (I vaguely remember CMJ mentioning something long ago in another thread that alts will be much, much easier to handle in S3 under an "umbrella" account or something...or I might be making it up.)

As for the current alt issue, the SP reward for rating monsters expired a long time ago if I'm not mistaken. I've heard this "rumour" a lot, and also heard it debunked just as often. I've rated tons of monsters and received no such reward (I don't do it for any reward, anyway! Big Grin )

I may also be further mistaken in saying the "donate for a friend" feature that's been implemented is the workaround to sending Lodge items to alts. ....if not intentionally? ...maybe? Confused (Actually...why would CMJ willingly penalize himself via PayPal fees for something as simple as sending a Title Changer? Neutral)


Something something unintelligible gibberish something.

If I could change one small thing on the Island ... I'd make the link to use a Saved Day into "Use a Normal Saved Day (Chronosphere)" or something like that, so that it takes up two lines. Just to even it up with the over-two-lines "Use a Super Chronosphere" which I keep nearly clicking by accident. And maybe even put a line break in between them too.

If I could change one small thing on the island, it'd be the Increment Thought contraption's drop rate. Seriously, out of the approximately 150 Increment Thought contraptions I've used, at least 90, likely more, have come from Creator's Bundles. In fact, I think I may have not counted the 40 from the 4 creators bundles I've had.

Approximately 60% (minimum) to 86% of my Increment Thought contraptions have come from Creator's Bundles. There's something wrong there.

Especially when I use Increment Thought and Run Program contraptions nearly equally, and in one run I got 18 Run Program Contraptions and 2 Increment Thought contraptions. I can understand if most people don't use Increment Thought contraptions, but I feel that Increment Thought contraptions need to have a higher drop rate.

Actually, I think that's tied into the fact that the thought-based programs increase server load considerably. Quid pro quo, rarer availability for the Thoughts C&Cs.

Old post but this is a good idea. Both for OCD and usability purposes.

Edit: I'd also like the ability to start a drive kill with a Super Chronosphere, if one's available.

That would devalue the highly sought after 'one day DK' a bit. Having challenges like that available to aim for can be a good thing.

Late reply, but you're right, I forgot that.

Another new day related thought: the ability to 'stay awake' through a new day and keep playing the same day instead of immediately rolling over. If you were offline, it would behave as normal, but if you're online and not in a bed you should have the option to keep playing the same day and let the new one get shunted to your chronospheres. I find it quite a silly thought that the entire population of the Island would drop on the spot and get a full night's sleep at the same time.

Don't think it would be too imbalanced, and would alleviate the "I just logged onto a good joker day but new day hits in like five minutes fffffffffhhhhhhhhhhhh"
