Skade has recently implemented the 'afk' command. Not only can you

inform people who talk you you of your afk status, you can also

write a custom message for their amusement.

As hinted in my last post, there is a Second Phase to the changes. New

players no longer have to play for 30 minutes before saving. This is to

work around abusable bugs.

Weight Watching, posted on Mon Jun 1 16:07:20 2009

The weight of _new_ players is no longer random. All new players will

begin with a weight of 80 kilos. Rearranging will affect this in the

usual way.

This change was made to remove the incentive to create a swarm of throw-away

swarms, we can make some other changes that we need to make to close some

abusable loopholes.

Cheers,

You can now identify a container as a 'medicine bag', and have the bandage command automatically pull bandages from there. The syntax is simply 'bandage <target>'. You can also choose to bandage targets with specific bandages as before.

Colours And Combat Feedback, posted on Fri May 22 17:42:46 2009

You can now set the colour of the combat feedback messages - it's 'combatfeedback' for a flag, and can be done using the 'colours' command in the normal fashion. You'll need to SU to do it if you're online at the time of this being posted!

There's a lot of stuff going on in the combat system that you never get any kind of feedback on. Well, to go along with the modified 'you struggle to hold' message, I've added more feedback throughout the process so you can see some of the things that get taken into account in the process. You switch them on in the same way you switch on the 'struggle to hold' by using 'options combat weapon_warnings'.

Now, some caveats!
