A little while ago Junebug said this. So. Uh. Guess we have another mystery.



Here's the petition that was solved, according to Junebug.

tl;dr: Clans buff link thing was missing for all clans. That's solved.

Anyways, the mystery part is what Junebug didn't tell us about, but gave us a clue. I'm looking in to it but have a HORRIBLE memory and also didn't build the clan I'm in up from the ground, so I most likely won't notice whatever the change is.

That's what this is for.

A further hint, as I believe I may have misled you slightly. The change I'm talking about is NOT a change to clans. Yet what I might have said after "There's..." would have followed logically enough, and the clue I did give is straightforward.

This one's not that hard. Someone will find it out soon enough! Or, who knows, CMJ may just tell you tomorrow.

Not everything, it has some connection to donating cigs to clans. Maybe there's something else to spend cigs on now. Is there a new mount to be had somewhere maybe?

Possible lie ideas possibly relating to cigs:
Cobblestone cottage is useful - Still a lie
One can stake a claim on water - Still a lie
If you donate all you cigs to the clan, it will bringing up a confirmation page before you donate - STILL A LIE
The One Armed Bandit won't make you cry - Still a lie
Something about Shiela's Shack O' Shinies? - Still a lie (I haven't noticed any change in pricing.)
Confirmation page before you smoke - Truth! But changed way before this change.
Squat Hole has a mount in Mike's Chop Shop - Still a lie
Cyber City 404 has a mount in Mike's Chop Shop - Still a lie
Fountains exist - ???
Joe is an admin who likes to give his users thorough changelogs - Still a lie



I'll come up with more stuff later.

can it really be that nobody has yet figured out that "lie that has become a truth"? Honestly, I didn't think it'd be that hard. Come on... I already implied it's related to cigs. Don't be so set in your ways, guys! Try things. Take a fresh look at those assumptions! There's something that's said twice to every newbie. All you veterans have known forever that it isn't true. But now...? well, it just goes to show! I know you can get it. (Or maybe you all did, and nobody told me! That's a possibility too. But if you haven't got it by this time next month, I'll tell you, and you will kick yourselves for not checking that.)




The second I read this I figured it out. Thank you for that hint about the newbies, for I was the one who discovered that!


Anyways... CIGS NOW GIVE STAMINA WHEN SMOKED.
There be the simple answer, now for the little bit more complicated one.

Cigs also seem to give diminishing returns on their stamina output and the nicotine buzz buff rounds. (Not sure on the actual buff itself, but the amount of rounds definitely goes down.)

Smoking your very first cigarette should give you 10% stamina. Smoking again, immediately after that, will give you between 9.6% and 9.8%. I haven't tested thoroughly to know exactly. I've got it down to about 8% so far. I'm sure it can keep going down, possibly approaching 0%. Maybe even reaching it!

Nicotine gum SHOULD help bring the output back up. And NewDaying definitely does help a little bit.

I think this is a wonderfully made mechanic, and look forward to possibly seeing a chart made of cig buff returns, as well as them becoming more valuable!
