They don't give as much power as they used to.

if objects have same amount of uses, transitions don't reset their state. like in case shovel with dung on it

if we can't eat cow we should be able to decorate it with paint and  flowers and parade it around village.

#5 Re: News » Update: Trucking » 2020-09-12 13:35:53

Nice update. I was starting to lose hope there will be one this weekend.
I'd like to see updated truck that can move cows or horses, walking them on a rope to other towns takes too long.

It will need janitors working for whole their lives . Bussy towns turn in to garbage dumps fast. Random seeds, bones of ancestors, misplaced items, all will cover every inch of town and make living in them miserable.

When a family dies new one apears west of last living family.
If a town had good design it might get repopulated but with time most towns turn in to garbage dumps and deplete surrounding resurces .
It is easier to loot most valuable items than bring people back.

Just make alt account like most banned people do.

#9 Re: Main Forum » What's your favourite names for kids? » 2020-07-17 10:48:03

Shortly after names ware added to game i would name girls after flowers and boys after trees/plants.
Then I used names of minerals/gems. Finaly came list of names from specific culture/nation or ending with same sylable etc.
Today I use first name that comes to my mind, maybe pun on family name, not enough kids to use those on my list.

Dozen people making random Jason noises - no thank you. That is why we can't spam emotes now.
But crafting music box and writing down notes on paper seems more reasonable.

Milk and broth bottles and pouches no longer count as unique YUM items (count same as their corresponding bowls).

It will get harder to make infertile outposts with new update.
Cisterns now count as homeland centers, so you can re-settle a town with a dry well if it has stored water. Fixes #809

Some days I spend 20 hours in a row, sometimes I have played for 30 hours in a row, without sleep, drinking less coffee, so I had to get away from the keyboard less, eating less food, just to avoid 3 minutes straight, of being away from the game, so that I could get back to work, as soon as possible, on whatever project, I was working on, for everyone.

After two years of playing i got bored with game and decided to make some experiments.
If anyone who finds this intresting can use it on to mod own version of game.

#17 Re: Main Forum » Do you think it's too small? » 2020-05-12 13:06:24

I finaly found time to finish color.
Still has no sound and does not interact with anything.
It does not replace any object in game so it can be used only in private servers.

I reduced front overhang.
I can't move character placement, it's always in centre. Only vehicle can move and i don't have much room to maneuver.
Riding animation is same as running so character leans forward, idk if that can be changed.
There are only some objects that obscure view and break immersion: trees, wells, ponds, mine, table. Those can have behind flag added like bear cave or newcomen.

Do you think it's too small?
I made a smaller version, and animated it all I have to do now is add color.
I can enlarge it, but it has side effects.
Objects larger than one square are obstructed by those on the sides and it look strange.

#21 Re: Main Forum » I'm in Donkey town » 2020-04-23 18:10:53

I had to grief four or five lives in row one day to be cursed to DT. Every life with evil emote whole life, i had to announce what will i do before i got finaly cursed by more than two people.

If someone claims they got to DT by accident i don't belive them.

#22 Re: Main Forum » Coming soon: tortilla tables » 2020-04-20 20:53:39

Waiting for hot coals takes 60 seconds (for hot oven only 15),but the most annoying thing is there is alway some "good" person who stokes your fire so it does not go out.

#23 Re: Main Forum » A Game of Child Abandonment » 2020-04-19 10:34:33

@ Spoonwood. Could you study this problem in more scientific fashion.
We have publicly available logs from servers that have lots of basic life data.
You can compare numbers of dead todlers from diferent months so we can see if game is better now or worse in this aspect.

#24 Re: Main Forum » Use your knowledge and imagination. » 2020-04-12 16:05:36

Here are some of my thoughts:

Easiest method would be to make premade paintings at random or use common objects as templates like in case of crowns/tattoos
+ no extra coding needed
- no fun to waste time to roll specific one
- low variety and unintuitive design
? some sort of voting system for comunity made drawings like steam workshops ?

Simple pixel editors/painting programs
+ "unlimited" creativity
- extra UI
- hard to make good picture in limited time if you are not pro
- censoring ofensive drawings

Composing pictures from list of selected objects(new item artists sketchbook that stores list of objects you clicked on)
+ fast to use, similar to game editor
- hard to do more abstract paintings, can draw only things you can see in game

I have made similar topic almost year ago but none of players responded, I hope this one will not get buried under dozens of posts about how bad the game is nowadays.

The only way to Win is to Stop Playing and apply things you learned from this game in your life.
