Mail Unmerge

Friday, September 2nd, 2011


We have a few changes going in with the mail system.

The main change is that mail has been split into multiple boxes, pushing the common automated messages into their own boxes.

  • The Inbox, all your mail that doesn’t fall into any of the following categories. This does still include some automated messages, like the ones from gifts, contacts, and events.
  • Sent Mail, which works how it has, but is now linked from the top rather than having to scroll down through all of creation.
  • Gang Warfare, for the messages you get for defending an area.
  • Subversion, for the new messages related to your sites being taken over.
  • And “Mall” for messages from OmniMall about orders being fulfilled. I kept gifts in the inbox because, well, who doesn’t want to know about gifts?

A couple random things to note:

  • When you click “Messages” up top, it’ll take you to either the folder with the most unread mail or, if you don’t have any unread, the last folder you were in.
  • Folders only show up in the list up top if they have messages in them (except your inbox), so don’t panic if you’re missing some options.
  • Edit: Delete All Unsaved now deletes all unsaved from your current folder.
  • All the folders have the send mail interface at the top. I’m not really sure if we want that universally. If it bugs anyone, start a thread on the forums and we’ll see where we don’t want it.

Thanks to the Fop for suggesting this! Let me know if you run into any problems.


Through the Looking Glass

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

The Mirror seems to have gone out pretty smoothly, in the grand scheme of things. I think we’ve got most of the bugs hammered out. I apologize if I miss anyone’s contribution, those first few days are always quite hectic.

Mirror Fixes

  • Fixed several bugs with climbing the reflected tower, then rebalanced the difficulty. Thanks for the masochism, Al and Mag!
  • Bonus Choice XP is now displaying properly. Good catch, The Fop!
  • Apple Rotgut is usable properly. Thanks, Mag!
  • The maiden will no longer stonewall questions with “SQL Error.” It’s unladylike, after all. Thanks, Lord Finisher, DoctrZombie, Argeth, GoldS, and DerMagus!

Other Changes

  • New item labels should now appear in their descriptions. For the moment this includes Music, Fishing Lure, Fishing Line, and some others you don’t have to worry about for a while. Before anyone asks, it’s not my intention to include many of these beyond what I already mentioned.
  • High Test Line and the Training Hook effects now interact. Good suggestion, The Fop.

We’ve also got a whole swarm of typos from amysaysyes, The Fop, Mag, Sir Cheddar, Lord Finisher, Factitious, Liasi, Al, borkman, Francis Vixen, and Argeth. Thanks, everyone!


Quick Fixes

Monday, July 11th, 2011

A few updates and fixes consolidated from the last few weeks.

First, Updates!

  • Defenders in gang warfare should now receive a blow-by-blow description of the battle in their notification message. Wooo!
  • Icons for all Conducts you’ve followed in Seasonal Reset runs now appear in your Profile.
  • Added some shield-related content.

Then, Fixes!

  • Corrected an issue where the Gang Warfare messages said you were fighting yourself. Thanks to Liasi, Viscerator, and The Fop for reporting that.
  • Fixed an issue with Jab not properly taking Strength into account for damage. Good eyes, Al! Good eyes!
  • Eclipse Purist should now be showing up in Profiles properly. Thanks, Mag!
  • And resolved an issue where the HKGames Helmet was interfering with sleeping. No fixes yet for the issue of Metroplexity interfering with sleeping. Good catch, The Fop.

Also resolved some typos thanks to DoctrZombie, Dennis, Mag, and Cryptodynamic. Thanks!

For those keeping track (and not reading this from the future, I’m aiming to release the next unearthly item the week of the 15th. So, the 15th to 22nd, sometime in there, hopefully.

As always, take my schedules with the daily recommended allowance of salt.
