We made them more accessible to tablets and phones. It's a forum system known as nodebb and it's pretty slick. It also had built in realtime updates to posts and a chat system. So a bit more responsive and nice to look at than SMF which is what the original is. We do plan on replacing those forum section button/logos with something more unique when Hex has the time to design them.
PS - Since we lost all former content we didn't see much harm in updating to something more responsive. Is it too phone app looking?
Not a fan of the new layout. Maybe it's just because I don't have a smartphone, but I find it seriously clunky to navigate and I can't imagine myself regularly checking this version for updates like I did the last.
Our goal, whether through REDSHIFT or on our own, will be to release an open-source version of our Evennia Engine, broken down into modules so that anyone looking to develop their own games in Evennia will be able to use any (or all) of the game systems that we’ve created. We believe, pretty strongly, that we’ve developed some of the best RPI-like systems ever – between advanced movement, stealth, position, object manipulation, roleplaying tools, combat, AI, somatic/status effects, GUI, in-game communications, skillgain progression, DOME, and more. We want those systems, ultimately, to be fine-tuned, packaged neatly, and available to anyone with the hunger for making a game of their own.
Just wanted to say that what you guys and the evennia team are doing is awesome. Open sourcing work that you've invested so much time and money into can't have been easy and I really appreciate it.
For navigating the forums if you go to the top you can click the unread button or the recent button which will show you all newly updated threads. It's a little different than skimming by sub-forum but it's pretty intuitive because it shows thread name + subforum. As for open sourcing work we will be doing that but there will always been some code which was specifically tailored to PRS that we'll keep for ourselves. Likely this wouldn't be of interest to anything but a scifi space game and thus not really great for modular open source because of how niche it is.
psyxypher: I'd be ashamed of myself if my bad experiences stopped you from /at least/ trying.

psyxypher: Though, I would like an alternative to Karma. I've come up with a few.

nile: not arm does a lot of call outs for crafts etc...tough to be one as your subguild but it shouldn't be your main focus either. i also tend to find them just useful for coins etc really...that said, not arm is far more accommodating if you want shit done

psyxypher: Would be nice if when you use the Craft command to see recipes you could make, that you could piece together what other ingredients are. Right now I'm flopping between trying for another character or seeing if I can weather this out.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:04 GMT -5
psyxypher: Both sound like pretty terrible options, to be honest.

vex: If you aren't having fun with it, do something else. Why waste leisure time, on something not making you happy? It makes no sense at all.
Mar 27, 2020 15:36:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: Mainly 'cause I'm worried my next character will be even less fun....but you're right.

psyxypher: Is there a board for ideas you'd want to add to the game?
Mar 28, 2020 18:52:21 GMT -5
nile: use the 'idea xxxx' command
Mar 30, 2020 4:22:28 GMT -5
psyxypher: I like having all my crazy ideas in one place. And getting feedback.

explayer: You can't count on the staff to read GDB threads. If you want a record of your ideas, submit them one by one using their request tool.
Mar 31, 2020 3:16:47 GMT -5
psyxypher: Again, I want some feedback from players before I put the ideas in.
Mar 31, 2020 9:22:24 GMT -5
explayer: Yeah, good luck with that. The GDB hates anything that isn't proposed by the staff.
Mar 31, 2020 13:01:21 GMT -5
vex: They also hate anything, that IS proposed by staff.
Mar 31, 2020 17:45:33 GMT -5
vex: Basically, the GDB is a shitchute spectacle of the worst kind, and you should respect yourself more, than to actively seek their opinion on anything.
Mar 31, 2020 17:47:28 GMT -5
vex: And you can pretty much count on them censoring, just about anything you post, that upsets one of their discord sluts, too.

psyxypher: I gave up on Arm a /long/ time ago. Like, sometime around Hasan's death, to be precise.
Mar 31, 2020 22:59:08 GMT -5
jkarr: did u run with hasan back then
Apr 1, 2020 9:57:56 GMT -5
psyxypher: Not at all. I was a turbo-noob back then.
