Update: Curses

griefers.... Griefers!  GRIEFERS!!!

Yes, you can kill them, just like in real life, but there's one little wrinkle:  this game has reincarnation.  Thus, you may be dogged by one wayward soul life after life after life.  You just can't seem to get rid of them.  Even if everyone in your village agrees, you're helpless, long-term, to deal with this handful of trouble-makers.

A metaphysical problem needs a metaphysical solution:  The brand new curse system.

Everyone starts out with a curse score of zero and a single curse token to spend.  They spend their token by saying CURSE JOHN SMITH.  Mr. Smith's curse score goes up by one.

If you have no curse token, you earn another one after playing/living for two hours.  You have a max of one token.

If you have a curse score, it goes down by one point after playing/living for one hour.

If Mr. Smith's curse score ever reaches 10, he will be born into his next life marked with inverse-color speech bubbles.

And yes, cursing is done by name, so unique baby names are more important than ever.  If two people share a name, the one that received the name first gets the curse point.  And nameless people cannot be referred to by name.  Name your babies, people.

Also in this update, along with few fixes, is a new home arrow distance estimate if the home arrow (or bell tower) is more than 1000 tiles away. And the tutorial has been updated with a few new things.... even veteran players might want to take another look at it, especially past the end area.

Re: Update: Curses

Awesome. While the additional challenge was entertaining, I feel like I might have missed something. I don't mean to spoil, so I'll just say the end was a little odd. Was that it? I guess what I'm asking is, what end area are you talking about? You're just meaning past the torch, yeah?

Re: Update: Curses

So if Mr. Smith is cursed and has inverted speech, does that only last for the next one life?

Until he has less than 10 points.  It decays 1 point per hour.

Re: Update: Curses

Mac version had a bug with the update.

It has been fixed.  After running it again, see v122b app in there and run that.

There's another thread about this too.

What is there after getting past the tree? I tried going around the left before getting bit by a snake and dying a slow and painful death.

Re: Update: Curses

Also the extra in the tutorial was to use materials to make an axe and a shovel and dig up a tree that was part of the wall, revealing that all the tutorial areas exist in the same map, just placed vertically under and over each other, I saw other people who had made tools and gotten out, someone had changed a sign that is outside all the areas from go--north go--south to hot rung lol.

Re: Update: Curses

I think there should be a way to see who got out of the tutorial area, because then I would know that player can craft big_smile

Re: Update: Curses

Won't this just cause a certain kind of player to try to get cursed so they can have the "evil" chat bubbles?

This might end up making griefing worse rather than better

Yes, they can.  And then what?  They will be killed over and over again.  I've already met moms that asked me to say something when I remained silent.

Seen any rampant griefing today?

>1 curse token
What if there are multiple griefers? Or someone just uses multiple accounts to get past this

You need to choose which one is worse.

Doesn't matter much.  He'll just block all acounts.  After getting over threshold he needs to play 1h or more non-griefing (most likely as Eve) per account.

Re: Update: Curses

It goes down one point per playing hour? or real time?
Also, if John Smith has five curse points and then someone names a new baby John Smith, can we continue cursing the first John Smith or are we now cursing the new John Smith?

Re: Update: Curses

Goes down one point per playing, lived hour.  Not real time.

Multiple accounts don't help much, because eventually, all of your accounts get "stuck" in a cursed state until you play each account to get out of the cursed state.

And if you go way up above 10, you have to play for multiple hours to get out of the cursed state.  So if you make 8 people mad in one life, and 8 people mad in the next life, you have 16 curse points, and have to play/live for 7 hours in the game before you get back to regular speech bubbles.

Jason, does it go beyond 10? I tried cursing Midgetmaker when he was already cursed on server12 and didn't get the purple text.
But maybe I typed something wrong.

Re: Update: Curses

Hey guys,

I am having trouble updating my game for some reason. I have an HP Envy x360, and a great connection. Any ideas as to why it will not properly update? The downloading bar goes half way and stops.


"The highest art form of all is a human being in control of himself and his airplane in flight, urging the spirit of the machine to match his own." – Richard Bach This quote seems to be made for my belief that a deep connection can be formed between art, living, and flying somewhere above the clouds. On a quest to a better self, becoming a pilot, and furthering my love of art.
