I fixed this lovely little quest hat had apparently been broken for almost 7 years and reactivated it.

Moonlit Market Item Restrictions, posted on Wed May 6 00:54:10 2009

The Moonlit Market peddlers have become a bit fed up with other people reselling their stock at inflated prices, and banded together.

You'll now have to wait a short while after buying something (up to five minutes) before you can buy another of the same item.

So you'll still be able to buy up items for your vaults or player-shops (or just to acquire a matched set), but it will take longer and require you to negotiate with other players who might be there instead of spamming "buy" and hoping ...

A number of Achievements went live in AM a couple days ago.

Most are related to crime: "hoodlum","needs to learn the words","felt the force","vandal", "public enemy number one","renegade", "menace to society","jailbird" and "bail bonder".

Then there is also Dogbottler's Friend.

Due to some issues recently, the previous blogs were eaten and most bug/ideareport statuses about this project were reset. So give me a few days to catch up there ;)

AM Crimes, posted on Sun Feb 8 16:30:48 2009

When you commit a crime in AM it can get added to your wrap sheet in two ways: either a watchman is present to see you commit it and he should act immediately, or a random law-abiding citizen notices it and reports it to the watch.

This does not mean there has to be an actual NPC present - it can just be one of the "people in the background". The chance of this happening is fairly small though.

This is not a completely new development as some code was already doing it. However I added it to t...

Watchmen, posted on Sun Feb 8 16:27:31 2009

I implemented some changes in the way watchmen handle arrests.

It should now be far less likely that they arrest the poor victimised NPC's instead of the evil players that are trying to kill them.

They should also be able to cooperate with each other more easily.

Do note that it will require a reboot before every watchman in the city acts this way.

I put a Most Wanted Board in the Pseudopolis Yard Watch House.

The top criminals (active players only) are listed here, as well as anyone who's been banished by the City Council.

Mister Game has been added to Discworld. He can currently be found in Brother David's in Ankh-Morpork. He is the master of The Game, and you are all invited to play.

AM Park Terrain Tweaks, posted on Mon Jan 19 19:41:03 2009

Just added some consistency, making sure roads are coloured red and journey is disabled (horrible messages here!) in all our terrains.
