I'm moving map chat to the actual map squares, instead of their own pages.

I LOVE IT!!

Now maybe Ashtu can find out who's been scribbling rude comments on the Annex sidewalk.



You're actually still wondering about this?

Hey, hey, hey. Leave me out of the porn. I'm this close to making a character that neuters the horny 14 year olds on the Island...with a pair of gardening shears.



I feel I must worship you.

I feel it's worth mentioning again that if you know for a fact that someone's under 18, please let me know so that I can ban them. Likewise if someone's playing an underage character.

You can, but they can't be involved in sexual activities.
As in, STAY OUT OF THE BORDELLO.

1st: Harris, nothing wrong with those feelings. Worship away. I also take fanart as an offering.

2nd: Trust me, CMJ, I'll report every horny teen in the island when I find them, though most of them only just act like horny teens so it's hard to tell them apart.


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.

Harharhar, fanart.
You get the most fanart out of me. You're awful. :C <3

I don't see why we can't assume the ones who act like they're horny teens are horny teens. I'm joking of course.
It is kind of depressing how the island seems to be some sort of hotspot for those sorts of people, however.

Oh, by the way, I'm under the legal drinking age.

Now you just have to figure out what country i'm from to see if you can ban me Wink

Oh, I'm pretty sure I can ban you. The only question is "Do I want to?"

You're from... *sniffs* The USA.

*sniff sniff sniff*

I'm betting... Kansas?

*sniffly sniff sniff sniff sniffle*

Smells like... somewhere around... Wichita? Am I close?

Somewhere between 18 and 21, then. Smile

Nineteen, and yes to country, no on state/city.


Also, for some reason, I just tried to claim I was twenty. I don't have to fake my age....

Alright, I feel like I got something to say about this.

At first, when I played, I got those "Sigh, ERPers..." feelings. The idea that erotic role-playing is a ridiculous thing to do in a game, or even in a virtual environment as a whole. (I also couldn't wrap my head around the idea that people got something out of phone sex.) Whenever I stumbled across people just making love scenes, all kissy-kissy without the whole "MY COCK IS NINE INCHES LOOOOOOOOOONG!" from some of the cruder crowd, I would still roll my eyes and read past it. "It's a game," my head said, "stop trying to get off or thinking you're in love with some stranger on the internet!"

As time went on, I completely reversed my position about it. (I had also lost an argument about the silliness of the concept of phone sex to a wise friend of mine by this point.) People get horny. People like romantic ideas. It's a valid form of entertainment. This is a game that's heavy about roleplay, has a bordello, doesn't censor, has catgirls, and the developer said he might be going to Anthrocon and is quite enthusiastic in the Improbable Labs forum about writing loads of porn.

Very enthusiastic. Laughing Out Loud

Hence, I kinda now view Improbable Island as a haven for horny people who want to play sexy in their RP games. Not that it should be what defines the game by any means, but that a person who's interested in RPing some heavy backrubs with their in-game lover before the scene fades to black (because being classy is still very appreciated!) shouldn't be scared of a core playerbase with gardening shears that have a taste for scrotum.

Huh. Plural of scrotum is scrotum. Learning for the day, completed.

Anyhoo, I say, let the porn be exposed! Let the willies wave in the world map! Intense necking in dwelling bathrooms! Orgy with Oronte!

Or, yanno. Be cool like me and just let it go on around you while you focus on doing things other than that. Cool

You can, but they can't be involved in sexual activities.
As in, STAY OUT OF THE BORDELLO.



Wait, so... are those 10 year old characters I see sometimes breaking the rules just for existing, or aren't they? Because I know of at least one that I find pretty interesting to play with.

Ah, yes, the Internets - where the men are men, the women are men, and the children are FBI agents.


Thank you.

If I could change one thing, I would make it so that we can change what attack style automatic fighting uses. I love using the insults, but combat takes forever when you have to click through it one attack at a time. Maybe you could add an option in the preferences to change what type of attack the automatic fighting use. That way, when you click "attack 5 rounds" it attacks with the insult you choose in preferences. Perhaps other abilitys as well?

That's the only thing I would change.

Yes, this is a great idea too, a lot of thing in this game would be made muuuuch faster if they had the multiple option's for quantity, would probably cut back on the server load too.

If I could change one thing, it would be disallowing anyone without the proper toolkit (carpentry, masonry) from even seeing let alone taking logs and stones on the map. I've seen it all through these forums, the rage this has inspired... The material stores are great, but now that the backpack overload bug is fixed, I tend to chop a few, drop a few... I just had 608 logs stolen -- I was a few logs away from exhausted, about to pick up the several tons of lumber, drop dead during the walk 1 click east.
There are 608 logs here.
Chop, chop, chop, inventory, drop, back.
There are 3 logs here.
I know I'm bordering on the "all my hard work" territory, but that was over an hour of mindless button pressing and actual cash money that was stolen... In my wrath, I posted rather angry fliers from the square where they were taken to Kittania; in hindsight, that's might not have been the best approach, so advance apologies to any offended...
Anyway, that's my two cents worth. Sorry for the rant.
Also, my condolences to anyone this has happened to (most everyone who's built, from what I can tell.)

[EDIT]
Also, this is my one complaint so far, in a game that is absolutely chock full of pure awesome! CMJ, thank you for putting so much actual work into making this such an amazingly awesome game!

What if you had to approve it when someone goes to pick up something you dropped? If you're just giving logs away, you can set something to auto-accept or something like that.
