Cash Till Changes

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

It has become clear that some people use the SGS financial system to simply collect money, even though they have no use for it when they collect it.
We will be attempting to balance things out over the coming weeks by changing the way money is allocated to different people.

Most Business owners are probably unaware that most of the money we decided to put into their tills was also put there in order to encourage crime.
Crime was to be encouraged to provoke interaction between criminals and the law.

Business owners usually complain when their tills are robbed, but at the moment that money was not really ‘earned’. Up to now it was just simply free money.

Our first change is aimed at the way in which business owners receive money for Food Drink and Drugs.
So from now on, if you own a store which sells these any of these items your till will only receive money for them when either you or your co-tenants are actually playing in the sim.
If you are not in the sim then the items will still be available to buy and other players will be able to purchase them, but your till will not receive any money.
This means that any money you make while in the sim from these items is actually ‘earned’ from you running the business and also you will be able to take it from your till before you leave.
People who rob tills will get less money when you are away or will have to rob the till while you are in the sim.
Please understand that earning money to survive is what the game is all about.

On a side note, we are aware that many people use alts to accumulate money.Ā  We have no problem at all with people having alts in the sim to play different characters, but using them to collecting money for your main character is cheating plain and simple and is totally against the rules.

NOTE: Tenant or cotenant will be ‘present’ if they are at either one of the 2 adjacent sims.

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

This version fixes a bug with the Unconscious state and a bugfix for the zombie hunting in Nomos.

Prim Number/ Rental Price

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Please make sure that you change the prim limit to what you need. Since the price of the rental is based on the prim numbers, you can save L$ by using low-prim furniture. Also you can change the prim number at any time – adjusting the remaining rental time. To find out how many prims you are using check on here:
If you use more prims, your rental price/prims will be adjusted. So please manage your own prims šŸ™‚

OffWorld Decontamination Ops

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

A cargo space freighter sits off planet but has been infected by the virus turning the crew into zombies. Obviously they do not want this to land but they do want the cargo.
At specific times through out a day, or possibly random times a message goes out in the hud to players that a crew of mercenaries is needed for one of these cleanup missions, they go to the TP point, a space shuttle, and when 5 players have taken their places, they are TPed up to the cargo ship. They land in the cargo bay and have to fight their way through the corridors to the bridge where they have completed the mission and can TP down. They must kill a set amount of Zombies before they can leave and have a time limit to do this in. There are extras like each person has a bit of code which they need to enter into one of the 5 on board computers to disable the auto pilot.

SGS HUD Version 0.87 – mini release

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

I just changed a few things:
a) proper handling of duplicate messages for the message board of the HUD
b) reduced the Unconscious state from 3+5 minutes to 2+3 minutesĀ  (which I believe is probably long enough).
This upgrade is optional. FREE Upgrades are available at the entrance, in the game room. Click on the “UPGRADE” sign on the wall. Upgrading is not mandatory and each upgrade contains the previous bugfixes and changes as well.

A few more info about upgrades

Friday, December 10th, 2010

a) The knuckeduster in the game package was not updated, so I released a v 0.86 – the only different from v 0.85 is that it contains a working knuckleduster. Upgrade is optional. (both KOS and Nomos)
b) The Great Sword Slaine Clean had one of the two object ‘no copy/no transfer/no modify’, instead of ‘no transfer/no modify’, so I repackaged the sword and it is now available.
c) The treasure hammer has been upgraded and it is available at the blacksmith if you want to buy it with game money (G$)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

All KOS weapons have been upgraded to v 0.90
Soon the older weapons will be disabled.
Upgrades are FREE and available at the Game Entrance by clicking on the sign for “SGS Upgrades” or “Delivery Problems”. Either one will give up copies of everything.
If you have a problem, IM me. Thank you

Also, the KOS Treasure Hammer has been upgraded to 0.90. There isn’t an automatic upgrade for it. You can either go to the Blacksmith and pay G$500 (game money) for one, or, if you cannot afford another one, ask Kora to help you out.

From now on, if the Crowbar (Nomos) or Treasure Hammer (KOS) have an upgrade, they will be delivered with the SGS Upgrade.

SGS Upgrade 0.85

Palace and Harem Guards – Update

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

For Palace inhabitants and Knights:

It came to our attention that the Palace and the Harem are often the places where other players come and expect to attack and conquer.
However, we have often said that the Palace has hundreds of Guards (even if they cannot see them) and in fact the Palace is supposed to be the safest place inĀ  Ireem.

To enforce this idea, you now have 2 special guards:
– Talib Akaba (Mustafa’s brother) next to the Throne Room, and
– Abdul Hamin in the Harem

If you get annoyed in-character by other players who don’t seem to acknowledge the presence of those hundreds guards and be respectful, click on the Guard.

You will be asked an amount for the crime. Be fair with it. They will have to pay that amount once in a trial.
Then you will be asked to type the name of the trespasser.

This person will be charged for trespassing and assault for the amount you chose. They will be instantly captured by the Palace Guards.
Their meter will lose all the physical health and they will be ‘Property of Knights’ with a trial open for them. They will also be disarmed and unable to wear weapons.
The trial is due right away.

Hopefully this will help to enforce the idea that trying to conquer the Palace is a bad idea and will never succeed :), and the only way to access the Palace or the Harem is to show respect and come in peace.

If your meter says “Palace” or “Knight” you may use these special guards. Harem Slaves – unless they are member of the Palace – won’t be able to use the Guard.

SGS Upgrade v 0.84

We released the new version of the HUD/Meter. There are some optimization of the API/code that will affect most of the healing/employment/money transactions.

Anyway this upgrade is mandatory, so please upgrade when you have the chance. Thank you.
The HUD/Meter Upgrade is available for FREE at the entrance of the SIM. There is an UPGRADE sign on the wall.
