Things I'd like to see added:

  • When were Paragon Dance Party and Pocket D first added?
  • When were the two transit lines merged to one?

I can't really find definitive dates for when the Paragon Dance Party was added. Pocket D was added late in Issue 6, I think. I see a patch note saying it was added to the zone search in Issue 7, so it was either 6 or 7. If someone knows for sure, I'll add it.

 

The monorail merger is already on the list. It was in Issue 19.

I remember Auras and The Hollows coming to the game so I must have joined in Issue 1 (before they were a thing).  I remember powerset customization, super sidekicking and walk but don't remember Posi split in 2 or epics at 20 instead of 50 so I must have left in Issue 16.

 

Is there a list of dates for these?  I would like to narrow down my dates of play.  If it is somewhere on the post I apologize...my old eyes are squinty today.  Thanks for this great list to take me down memory lane!

Weird, the patch note specifically called out that they were added to Hazard and Trial zones. I will change the post to say "most zones."

There isn't a hospital per se in Boomtown, but there is a MASH tent there, just like in The Hollows. You rez at the tent if you die.

Thanks for this list I can now get close to when I joined (2007) I then had the happiest 5 years of my playing life😁 Met so many good people on Defiant (my home server) I'm now in the late '60s and didn't think I'd be back playing the best game (in my opinion) ever.

Wind control! I'd love to see that! Been adoring the water control set/s.

 

I thought I had started around issues 3, maybe issue 5 in the Hey Day... but I remember the Hollows opening and running around them brand new and capes and auras being a big deal (and how anticipated wings were... oh see the birds now? They're practicing wing animations for heroes soon)- I'm older than I thought.

Wow!! I didn't realize how much effort they put into this game!  I remember when I started, I had to be convinced to play.  I thought it was a really dumb concept but when I first logged in...I was hooked and proven totally wrong.  It became my favorite game, possibly of all time!  It is my wife's favorite game as well.  I cant believe this exists!!  I started the month it launched (a navy friend in Hawaii eventually convinced me to play) all the way till around update 21.  So, I am really looking forward to what is new....it has been so long so much of it will be new again....

Does anyone know when exactly Kora Fruit were downgraded to give level 2 instead of level 3 inspirations? I know it happened alongside or immediately prior to the addition of inspiration storage to SG bases, but I can't remember if bases launched with Storage in I6 or if it was added later.

Kora Fruit was downgraded with the last patch before the launch of Issue 7: https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Patch_Notes/2006-04-11#City_Zones

 

Inspiration storage was added with Issue 7: https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Patch_Notes/2006-06-06#Bases

Data point for Issue 6: Ragdoll physics added.

 

I absolutely loathed ragdoll physics for their negative impact on certain powers and playstyles, but I seemed to be in the minority at the time.
