Haha, the keyword there was 'testing'. I was testing the emotes to see if they really were locked, so I used a character without that badge. I am updating the emotes menu to include them, and will use the 'LockedOption' feature to allow them to be used once the badge is earned.

 

Along those lines, it might be worth considering having those emotes unlockable by more than one exploration badge. The badge in question is heroside, so perhaps allow it to be unlocked via a redside badge (like 'Sweet Tooth' in Cap au Diable) and a goldside badge (perhaps 'Don't Drink It' in Neutropolis or 'Binge Eater' in Underground Neutropolis), so characters that are strictly red/gold side can have access to the emotes.

Or set up a badge on the floating donut in Echo Plaza.

Very good point, it's an extra hurdle for heroes but even worse for villains/Praetorians. I would go a step further and ask if the emotes need to be locked at all? We've mostly done away with that kind of thing (see: costume parts), except for ones earned from events.

With changes to how AE works... any chance we'll be able to have an AE terminal in bases at some point?

That would be sweet, but what AE really needs, especially to go along with Base access, is for all AE Mission entrances to function as the same door, so your team, no matter where they are, red, blue, gold, base... can enter the mission from their nearest AE. If internet cafes in the real world can do it, I'd think AE could manage it 🙂

The Drenched Donuts emotes (including coffee), require an exploration badge to use. Can you guess which one?

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

Since it might be a while before the next round of fixes, I just wanted people to know I'm aware of the emote issues, including the male/huge coffee needing adjustments. I could give you a really long reason for why sometimes obvious things make it to live, but at the end of the day sometimes it just happens.

Since this latest patch, tequila goes through a quick "downloading" progress bar at the bottom, then a 2nd one starts, and at about halfway through, it just closes out.  I've tried running it as the administrator just to be sure, but it still happens.  Can anyone suggest a remedy for this issue?  Thank you in advance!

 

EDIT:  I've tried running it in compatibility mode for Windows 8, 7, and XP SP3, but am still encountering the same issue...

 

2nd EDIT:  I've downloaded the HCLauncher and reinstalled the game to a new directory, and it's working.  Has Tequila support been discontinued?

I open tequila and the update started but stalled and has moved. Should I close and restart?

 

Close Tequila and try deleting tequila.xml, tequilalog.xml and TequilaActivityLog.txt from your game directory and trying again. That usually helps me when it gets stuck like that sometimes.

 

If that doesn't work, it's very much recommended to upgrade to the new launcher.

The Old Fashioned badge claims that "Even Lord Recluse likes donuts."  Why not allow Drenched Donuts to open a franchise location in the Rogue Islands and stick the badge there as well?  It can be a 9th badge not required for the zone accolade (Going Rouge in Imperial City already does this).  I suggest putting it in Port Oakes, Cap, or Marital as those three are the least torn up by rampant crime waves.  Nerva would also work due to Longbow's precense and providing them some extra safety in exchange for free coffee.

 

For Praetoria, maybe set up a donut shop in Nova near Precinct 5.  Change the donut colors and rebrand it to be a little more Gold-themed.  Old Cole Coffee & Donuts or something to that extent?  Or just reuse the Loyal Tea & Coffee shops from Imperial City.

Thanks, Naomi!  I deleted the files you mentioned and tried again, but it didn't work.  Regardless, the new launcher DOES work, so I'll stick with that.  Thanks again!

I was also hoping it would make your character able to "swim" around in the inner tube too 😛

Can we get an official comment from the GMs if there will be one this year or not?

It doesn't look like it. Pity, as I had cleared out some storage so I could get a years worth of winter sets for alts.
