  1. I saw the one in Tequila, but it doesn't really "POP," so I could see plenty of players not noticing it. The actual pop-up for the Safe Mode Client, however; yeah. That's pretty blatant. A countdown timer might still be helpful, though. I had a colleague publish a minor paper on the significant impact of countdown timers in games. I'll take a looksie on my old portable harddrive next time I plug it in if anyone wants a copy. Pretty compelling stuff.
  2. Pet pathing in Bases would need to be fixed first. My Henchpets always just hang out at the entry portal whenever I enter a base. If I dismiss them and resummon them, they have a helluva time understanding different elevations inside the base, and will freeze if I ever walk up a flight of stairs or jump on a box.
  3. Cunning! . . . you must be Mender Silos in disguise, eh?
  4. "years ago" Freudian slip, or was that more telling than intended?
  5. This should probably be bumped and more avenues of announcement should probably be employed around now. I saw in the Beta forums that Safe Mode's days are coming to an end with Page 5. If that's true, then I really think a strong campaign should be made to reach those last few hold outs and help them get on to the newer clients.
  6. If the reason to vote "no" against a suggestion like this is to save on work for the volunteer Development Team; fair enough. But it's been an ongoing trend from the onset of the game to improve players' travel options. Why stop now?
  7. You may also make additional accounts for free, and use those slots.
  8. It's a pretty solid idea. Deserves to be Liked.
  9. Also, call me paranoid, but the potential for trolling or outright impersonation would only increase if multiple players could have characters with exactly the same name. I've seen enough drunk and/or emotionally-charged players generate drama which just spreads like wildfire. I'm not eager to provide a tool for that kind of conduct to be employed with more precision.
  10. Gonna +1 this; Night Ward, First Ward, and Kallisti Wharf seem to have some kind of memory leak issue. They are the only zones which consistently boot me to desktop after I've visited them a few times on a single instance of the client, or while multiboxing clients.
  11. So, we've known since . . . August? I wanna say "August" that the base entry command which so many players have come to rely upon for various reasons was never intended to be available to players. Debate rages on as to the benefit or detriment of this (I'm a firm supporter of "benefit" personally), but we know there are plans in the works for the command to get axed, and for some tweaks to the Base Teleport Powers (yes, Powers, plural, don't forget the Day Job!). However, in preparation for that day, I would like to encourage the Homecoming Dev Team to consider strategic placement of additional Base Portals throughout the standard Zones. For bonus points; allow us to exit our Base to any Base Portal in a Zone. I won't object to the addition of Base Portals in Hazard Zones, buuut I can see a pretty solid argument for keeping those zones -hazardous-. Maybe just one Portal at the Main Entrance of the Hazards? (Goodness, which Entrance -is- the Main Entrance for a Zone like Perez?) I would like to encourage the aforementioned Benefit versus Detriment of travel times to continue in the previous thread, if possible. I welcome folks to suggest some /loc coordinates for where they'd personally appreciate seeing additional Base Portals pop up. Thanks.

  13. After a dumpster fire of a thread showed up earlier today, I thought now would be a good time to express a little appreciation for specific stuff that the Homecoming Team does that you feel sets them above and beyond the (emphasis here: Volunteer) call of duty! Remember: Let's keep this purely positive. Encourage the Team to do the things you love them for. Any criticisms or concerns can be directed in private, where they'll probably go over more smoothly. Thanks to all of the GMs and members of the Homecoming Team for their dedication to monthly costume contests, with special thanks to GM Miss for being so involved with those events!
  14. Stickied threads in their respect Shards probably do the trick. I don't see recruitment needing a whole entire board dedicated to it. MAYBE a sub-board each under the respective Shard boards at most?
