  1. Don't worry, me and Tempest bug the hell out of the devs for more RP stuff incessantly. Just that the devs have a long to-do list.
  2. maps/missions/V_Arachnos/V_Arachnos_45/V_Arachnos_45_Layout_02_02p.txt (1045) Please fill in the floors of the inside of pillars. So so many foes get knocked into the pillars, then fall 10+ stories down "the tube" that is all the pillars in this Arachnos base.
  3. I didn't know him, but my condolences to his family, friends, the staff here, and all the players that played with him. I am really glad he got to play CoH with friends again after shutdown, even if it was a little while. He sounds like he was a wonderful person.

    Fourth Wall RP

    4th wall is extremely hard to pull off, because it's difficult humor. Particularly when interacting equally with others. It can quickly get dismissive of them. If none of this is real, then you possibly implying that what other characters around you are doing is meaningless. But, it can be done. The best results I have had is using it extremely sparingly, so it "hits" at he right time, and don't make it your main focus. I played a character that was facepalmingly stupid. He would go around making these musings and ponderings that were just extreme dumb, but might seem deep if you are low IQ. Sprinkled in with this nonsense, I would hit a few 4th walls. People interacting would be expecting another facepalm moment of Kal's character saying something dumb. But suddenly it's some actual pondering thought that he was correct in, but since it was 4th wall, IC acknowledgement was limited, but everyone enjoyed it. Key was, my character did not know better than everyone else putting him above them; but he accidentally sometimes stumbled upon a 4th wall truth. But he is already made to be dismissed, since 80% or more was wrong funny nonsense and being oblivious.
  5. When you absolutely need to communicate, and you need a good "copout", use: ;calculate ...and emote magically drawing words in the air as you give the text. Is this cheap? Maybe 😏
  6. The SnakeDen looks super shady! What kind of illegal treats were given out? Sus! Thanks alot for the thoughts everyone! We love you!
  7. I can't implement this myself, but I'm happy to share what I do to lessen the effects: Bio has a low Effects mode, and with any powers, remember that if you color a "bright" mode effect a dark dull color, or a "dark" mode effect a bright color it makes it more transparent. You can color Rad effects very dark grey, and they look like barely there ghost or wisp effects.
  8. No idea on the justification on that, but 2.0 is usually overkill when I am running tactics and kismet, and just using it to clean up trash. Fast cast time = aimed less? No idea.
  9. Totally understand that. I still vividly remember my first log in here after so so long. Hearing the neighborhood music intros and standing under Atlas with everyone hanging out and showing off is amazing. Still.
  10. All the judgements are basically the same damage if you aim them right. Such as targeting near the center of a pack with pyronic. But Ion you do not have to bother. Pyronic casts much faster, so that's my usual choice.
  11. If you bought Scrapper nice things, like Critical strikes ATO, Scrapper would love you back.
  12. Just a reminder: We have set up several social media accounts in preparation on Twitter, Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube. Links listed here: Feel free to follow them even if they are not in use, yet. Actually there are things you can do! Please follow the rules everyone. That simple. Some of them might be frustrating, some might be.... odd from a non legal perspective. But every rule we make is for a reason, and those reasons all have to do with keeping the server safe, around long term, making sure the maximum number of people can enjoy it harassment and drama free. ☺️
  13. Yes he was doing that as a player long before he was a GM, and continued doing that as a player using his own personal funds afterwards. (No GM powers involved, just his skillful AH marketeering) We usually keep GM and player identity secret as a default to protect privacy, but it's not required. And we always have totally separate "play" and GM accounts.
  14. He was always on Torchbearer with his player account handing out Influence and Superpacks as gifts to new players like mad. He always loved getting new players going.
  15. 2020 is terrible. Cyclone started as a GM just after me. So so many times I posted his helpful guides to players. He really loved this game. I can only hope he didn't suffer after the accident. From the sound of the accident he just... was not there from the moment of impact. I'm at least thankful for that. He originally wanted to be GM Mospeada, but I totally busted him to Cipher for copyright before he started I was really looking forward to him watching the new Mospeada anime that hasn't come out yet, but I guess he won't be able to see it now. Damn his obsession with bikes. I just wish they were as armored as the "Cyclone" ones in the show he loved. He did so much both as a player and a GM. He will be greatly missed by me and all of the community. I'm glad his writings and guides are still helping people. Please check out his works and guides. It made him happy every time they helped someone. https://forums.homecomingservers.com/topic/11218-r_ms-guide-to-r_ms-guides/
