Webclient

Post by ilmarinen » 22 Jun 2019, 14:27

We have a webclient at https://shadowgate.org/play/ with directional pad for limited mobile use.
You can bind some keys to commands with alias (F1-12 and numpad5, numpad0). 1-9,-,+ keys of numapd are used for movement, but don't expect it to have too many features.

This client is based on connectificator, open client from SneezyMUD.org.
Thanks to random people in Russian MUD Discord that pointed me out to it.

Undead

Post by ilmarinen » 26 Jun 2019, 20:22

Any wonkyness involved with undead spells like animate dead, the dead walk, animus blast and animus blizzard should be gone. If anything, <dismiss undead> now will reset your undead counter. In addition to that, these spells behave next way: you can raise total of your clevel of undead corpses. I.e. if you're level 50, you can raise 1 lvl 50 corpse or 50 lvl 1 corpses or 25 lvl 2 corpses. Bug that caused undead to spawn with 10hp is gone as well (that was the reason for their feebleness). Animus blast and blizzard effects have been unified with different chances to raise undead.

Warlocks and master

Post by ilmarinen » 27 Jun 2019, 22:16

Warlock master is last to be converted to "new" system (someone put it in ages ago but never finished integrating it) that eases development, addition and management of spells a little.
I hope there are no bugs, but if there are some you'll encounter them when using <master> command.

Teleportation

Post by ilmarinen » 28 Jun 2019, 23:29

Teleportation got some library updates that consolidates all checks and randomness into a single file.
Teleport, fold space, greater teleport, planar sending, psionic teleport, succor got rewritten. Other teleportation spells remained untouched for now, but exploit method common for other spells.
This change should allow us to add effects such as teleportation diversion with relative ease.

Protection from spells and power resistance

Post by ilmarinen » 28 Jun 2019, 23:30

Protection from spells and power resistance behave per srd description (damage subtraction), and will stack with rings now (although rings are useless). Although unlike how it is in srds, they'll scale pass 8.

L2 Captivate spell is in for bards and clerics. This is SRD enthrall spell, but the name is already stollen by warlocks, so our version is named captivate.

Re: Global changelog

Post by yves » 01 Jul 2019, 05:09

Magical crafting had been mistakenly limiting players to two bonus enchantments. While that is an eventual goal, the system to allow players to choose which bonuses to drop on current items is not implemented yet. It has been fixed to allow three bonus enchantments for the time being so that there are no "grandfathered" items giving older players an advantage over newer.

Be warned that the limit will be lowered to two eventually. Maybe. Probably.

Magical crafting has been changed to only allow two additional bonuses beyond the enchantment (+). Those with legacy crafted items will find when you log on that they will give a warning stating you have 8 hours before the item becomes unusable.

A new command <help fixitem> has been created to allow players to choose a single bonus to drop, or to drop all bonuses except the enchantment. This command will only work with items that are outside the new guidelines and once you apply it to an item it will no longer be considered outside the guidelines any longer.

Library: returning a book

Post by ilmarinen » 05 Jul 2019, 07:12

It should be possible now once again to return a book into the library..
The bug where you can't submit a new book for review remains unresolved.
In addition, I clarified library syntax.
