I think this might have something to do with why documenting it wasn't strictly necessary...

Another one of my fine works! 🙂

"Science. Science, my friend, requires radical gambles and adventures in malpractice sometimes. Take solace in the fact that I tested the majority of these things on the dead, the re-dead, and the nearly departed before I went to live trials.

 

Honestly, most of my "specimens" were several iterations past being considered a human being with their original fingerprints, teeth, or IDs. So it was rather a lot like experimenting on moaning clay putty."

As cool as some of these AP updates are..does Redside get nothing at all? Or Goldside? Surely there have halloween over there too. Maybe they carve hamidon heads instead of pumpkins!

 

Agreed.  I just went onto the Shadow server to check out Cap au Diable (which is pretty much red side's equivalent to Atlas Park), and... nothing.  At the very least IMO, the giant atom globe in Aeon City should be changed to a pumpkin as well.

 

I get it.  Most people don't know any better and play blue side.  But some of us (like moi), only have red side toons, and seeing absolutely nothing done in red side will just perpetuate the belief that red side doesn't matter.

 

But, I understand that y'all have very limited time and resources, and don't have to do anything at all, so thank you. :)

I like you devs peeps, but yeah, this! 

 

I mean, I'm being hyperbolic, but yeah.  😃

I feel like there should be a face carved into this... a big, glowing, deviously grinning jack-o-lantern face.

 

Also, now that I've seen it I can't believe no one has ever done it before. What a great idea!

@Piecemeal did actually try this, but despite his excellent efforts, the texture resolution available just isn't high enough to pull it off well. The simpler pumpkin ended up working better 🎃

 

The engine is set up to only take textures up to 1k by default - we've broken that restriction internally during some testing but it's probably not a good idea to do so for a live build.

Jokes aside, something, anything, would be welcome for redside. Heck, even some small pumpkins scattered about the major cities.

I'll brainstorm something for next year and MAYBE the winter holiday season if I have time.

Thank you for the reward change in Kane's instance. Any chances in the future of new rewards here? This is a great instance and more goodies would be nice.

Improve Hamidon Enhancements! Add Recharge to Ribosomes. Add Recharge or endurance modification to Golgis (or both!). Interrupt reduction to Centrioles, slows to Lysosomes and Enzymes, recharge to endoplasms and endurance reductions to peroxisomes.
