Nomos – New Residential Development

Monday, March 29th, 2010

We are considering adding a SIM to the Southern edge of Nomos.

The main purpose of this would be to add some residential accommodation in keeping with the theme of the SIM, but also to add a desert road and various other sim related RP areas associated with such places. This would also take the pressure of the main sim and spread the load.

These apartments would be of various sizes, furnished or unfurnished and the larger ones would be at least 20 meters apart for privacy. There would also be a personal prim allocation depending on size of apartment. We have set no prices yet, but there would be a price range according to size and the prices would be no more than other rented place in SL.

We would hope that people renting them would treat them as extensions of their game life here in Nomos. It would in fact be an idea for people wishing to set up special places using their own poses and equipment, something that is not possible in the main sim due to Prim count.  But we would not strictly police this rule as they would be rentable for L$ and NOT GAME MONEY, please make a note of this fact.

So if you love Nomos and just hate having to leave then let us know ASAP. If we find the demand high then we will begin on this project straight away and hope to have something ready for rent within 2 or 3 weeks. We will make a list as we get replies and use that as a means of first come first served allocation.

So if it sounds like something you would definitely be interested in then send a simple note card to Baal Zobel  with your name and something like, yes please, I would love to live in a dirty run down rat infested city.

Nomos – Items rezzing problem update

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Although sometimes you don’t get  the skill items, the problem – in my opinion – seems to related to the asset database. I submitted a bug in the Jira and we have an open ticket with the Lindens. I am waiting for the technical team to investigate and resolve the issue.
If you want to find out more:
Sorry about that….


Items not rezzing – Update

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

It seems that there are occasional failure of items to rezz.  There are actually some other issues that you don’t see. Scripts often don’t compile or they set themselves as ‘not running’ , and when you force them, they run, but when you delete them, they don’t get deleted. I submitted a bug in the Jira. Today I contacted Service Support. They came and take a look at the region, and found nothing wrong, so the technical team will come and check.  Will update asap.

Update 4 March

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

28 February – 4 March 2010

SGS RELEASE 0.62, 0.63, 0.64
– Rewritten part of the API/functions to optimize the code
– Safezones may be applied to multiple groups
– You cannot eat or restore your physical health if you are OOC.
– The announcements on the HUD handle individual messages too (internal function).
– Minor bugfixes

Most of the actual changes apply to Nomos only, but you should upgrade anyway next time you enter the SIM.
The Upgrades are available for FREE at the Game Room, up in the SKy Entrance.

RP BANS (now limited to 1 WEEK)
We think that many RP bans are not meant to be forever, and right now unless you unban someone, they will stay in your
ban list forever. Also you won’t be able to unban them unless they are nearby.
Since we believe in people’s good nature and willingness to forgive and move on, we will make the RP bans
expire after ONE WEEK. In the meantime, we hope that you have worked something out between the two of you.
After a week, the roleplay should resume to normal. And we hope in everybody’s effort in making this possible.
If you want to keep the RP ban, you will have to resubmit it through the HUD and one more week will be added.

ps: Check on your web profile to see the current status of your RP bans. Thank you!

The code for all the individual items and employment register have been updated. A few important info:
( 1 ) Some items, such as combat, psychic and justice ONLY works when your status allows you to.
For example, if you are owned by someone else, you won’t be able to use these items.
If you are OOC, or Non-Combatant, or your Mental is zero, or your Physical is zero, a message will tell you
that you don’t qualify.
( 2 ) Combat and Psychic items now attach by default on the Left Hand (as they should)
( 3 ) The values of Psychic, Combat, Armor have been increased. Check on them now.
( 4 ) The channel to type your message when you use the skill item is now random. Read the local message to find out
what to type in local chat.
( 5 ) The skills of Law and BioMech had been added (although these don’t affect KOS).
( 6 ) The delay to take the items before they get deleted has been increased to 6 minutes (if it wasn’t like that before).

All the individual info are now on the web. There is an individual link for each of them.

And all the invidual links on the left menu.

Please IM Kora Zenovka if you find problems.

( 1 ) Businesses now gain directly the profits from the card game (and of course losses).
So if you run a business with the card game, take a look at your cash till.
It is possible that you may get a negative balance (if you get really lucky players).

( 2 ) Archangel Azrael is back. After a long vacation, the guard of the catacombs, Archangel Azrael, is back at work.
He is in charge of keeping the intruders away. Watch out!

( 3 ) The KOS Dungeon is now shared by both Knights and Palace Guards. It is safezones for both of them.
Also the cell doors can be open by any of them. (suggested by Joris Hudson)
