Update: Strange Visitors

GZIpCOp.png

Off-screen speech is now shown on the bottom, left, and right of the screen, not just the top.  When you are targeted by a killer or posse, you can tell that they're coming for you by the double-! for their off-screen sounds (posses coming for other people have single-! for their off-screen sounds).  You now GASP when targeted, along with making the usual shocked face.

The kill-target swapping bug has been fixed, and the waiting time before landing a kill has been increased from 3 seconds to 6 seconds, giving your victim more warning.

Babies are now truly helpless for the first 12 seconds of life.

Springs and tarry spots are now on the same 40x40 grid of ley lines, so they're both plentiful and easy to find.  Tarry spots now use a similar area-based tap-out mechanism.  After tap-out, dried springs and tarry spots provide gradient directional pointers to help you find any well along that ley line.

The jumpiness of genetic scores has been reduced by around 4x.  This makes it harder to climb to the top, but easier to stay there once you get there.  After around 100 offspring have been factored in, your genetic score very closely approximates the average lifepan off you and all your offspring, and players of different offspring-preservation proficiency are cleanly differentiated by score (before, the scores were so jumpy that there was a lot of score overlap between players at different proficiency levels).  Mothers and grandmothers now count toward your own genetic score, closing the matricide genetic score exploit.

The most recent arc (the one with 5 oil wells) still had oil after 72 hours.

I mean considering santa hats and Christmas trees are part of the game, I'd consider them here to stay.

I could see pumpkins also getting a food option soon.

Re: Update: Strange Visitors

Do covered costumes activate griefers?

And in the future, I'm worried that the village will be full of jack-o-lanterns and Pumpkins not chosen.

Re: Update: Strange Visitors

Very adorable! And finally some more uses for candles! I wonder how frewuent the masks would be off season.
I wonder if this means that we might get good foods like pumpkin seed oil. (it's very great as dressing on tomato-onion salads and on icecream!)

My favourite all time lives are Unity Dawn, who was married to Sachin Gedeon.
If you get named Siddhartha or Shamon, it was probably me. If the name is arabic it was probably me too. I don't like giving kids common/boring/mundane names.

Many ghosts who do not work are killing others.
Was Halloween such an event?
not fun.

So there was no food in the village.

Re: Update: Strange Visitors

Wait, is the Jason hat part of the game now? I'd loooove to play as Jason big_smile


I have helped to fix pigs! MAKE THINGS BETTER!
Add genetics, please, Jason!
Don't ruin others' lives over something dumb (like Yum or a pie.)

But, what's up with the Jasons? Are they Jason himself playing, are they bots, mindless animals, a new skin?

Jason, when are we going to get a substantial content update? It feels like the last one was the engine.

It's Jason logging into an account that is flagged to spawn in as Jason. He could turn any one of us into Jason only accounts if he really wanted to.

Might be a funny gag to turn donkeys into Jason so they know they're in DT lmao.

Re: Update: Strange Visitors

Pumpkin cultivation is all I could hope for


in fact, playing ohol design by myself I had envisioned a very similar system

while getting ideas through to Jason is hard sometimes I'm very glad to see he also looked into pumpkins wnough to realize they're all just a type of squash

I didn't look into pumpkins.

I knew that already, from my days as a real-life agriculturalist!

Re: Update: Strange Visitors

My young town murdered a Jason, I think. They were chasing him with weapons when I left and he was saying help. Somebody had a Jason hat on too. Sorry Jason, I didn't help.
