Title: New Stuff, and Halloween Crazies!
Post by: Slimebeast on 01:21:17 AM 10/16/13
As the only holiday that really matters draws near, we have several fun and amazing updates to share with you!

1: Non-Player Characters (NPCs) - That's right! The player base may be small, but now you'll have something else to occupy your time with. Something much else... Right now you'll only find Trick or Treaters roaming the streets... violent, evil Trick or Treaters...

Later, more kinds of guys!

2: New Weapon Class - "Thrown Weapons"! That's right, you can throw crap, now. Well, not literally crap... yet. Chuck a tire at someone... peg them with a cinderblock... finally use that antique tea set for something enjoyable!

Not all items are throwable, but all throwable items are guaranteed to make fun smashy sounds. In your imagination.


3: New Item Class - "Noise Makers", for lack of a better term, are items that exist solely to send notifications to all players within a certain radius. In other words, Flares. Colored flares.

Say "All Clear!" with a green flare, or "Stay Away!" with red. What you use orange for is your own business, pervert!


4: Clacking Claws! It finally works!


5: Bug fixes! - Gone are the days of being greeting with the same welcome message over and over again. Some other stuff, to!


6: New bugs! Collect them all!

I haven't had a chance to test it, but it still says "(STILL Coming Soon)" in the description. (I want to know cos I'm updating the HR wiki)

It, uh, probably works. Maybe. Either way, he didn't update the skill description, which is just text.

Yeah, I forgot it said that. All the testing and coding in the world unfortunately doesn't tell us if it's going to work or fail in "the real world", so while I'll change that now - it's still good to keep an eye out for glitches.

Okay!

One more question for the wiki: when I was Human I noticed that they could enter EHBed buildings for 10 AP. I'm assuming this is the same for Heavily Barricaded also right? :)

Yeah, I think "unenterable" should always give the much costlier option.
