Need more items? Go and hunt them in Golgothica

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

The blacksmith is now offering a treasure hammer for sale in game money (G$500) if you have been in Golgothica for at least 7 days (game days). Once you get the hammer, go and find the jars around the town. When you find one, touch it and start smashing it with the hammer to open. If you get an item, it will be saved in your game inventory for later use. Also you will have to pick if you want to save the item for later use or sale.

SGS HUD v 2.18 Release & New Treasure Hunting

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

If you go treasure hunting in KOS, you should update to this, and you should also get the new treasure hammer from the dispenser in the blacksmith.

The new HerbalPotion is an item that you may find in a jar or you can buy from other player. It is an item type ‘vaccine’ and it will cure you from rat bites.

All the Items in the Jars have been replaced with items that will go to your game inventory. Once you find an item, you will be asked if you would rather use or sell that item, but then it will be stored in inventory.

This update is NOT mandatory.

PS: It also means that from now on, the alchemist skill item will be the Herbal Potion to be used on other people or to use on yourself.

SGS HUD v 2.17 Release

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Sorry, I just found out a bug in the 2.16
Version 2.16 uses Kora’s inventory only, not your own one 🙂
It is not big deal because there is very little I have in the inventory, but Please update to 2.17 ASAP
THank you

HUD & Meter Release v 2.16

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

In this release:

  • Inventory Items will last for 72 hours instead of 48 hours (from last update date). The inventory purge is done when you signup for work. More Info:
  • Added minimum age to employment, because some jobs may require a player with a minimum age for signups.
  • When the law and order skill is used on you, the system now ignore the crime investigated and dismissed. More Info:
  • After the law&order skill announces the arrest of a suspect, the delay is now 10-30 seconds (random) instead of 2-11 seconds. If the suspect runs and stays at a distance of 10m or more from the officer of the law, the arrest will fail.
  • Added the skill item type “anyfood” which can be food, blood or energy.
  • Fixed a problem with rats (players were owned by previous owner, instead of falling unconscious). When you capture a rat, you will be asked if you intend to eat it or sell it, and then it will become part of your inventory.
  • Some code cleanup about  the skill items.

Updates are always FREE and available in the Game Room at the entrance of the SIM. This release is mandatory.

Golgothica Referendum

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

The RP Business Owners are asking for the cash tills. Cash tills are only fair if players have the chance to steal from it.If we allow people to steal from it, it would be fair only if they pay for their crime. If players pay for their crime, then we need a justice system with trial or so on. So in summary, if we add the cash tills, we will need the whole justice system. Now Baal and I have decided to let you vote for it, so we will know what the majority of players in Golgothica wish to do in this regard. If most players want the justice system, keep in mind that vampires and demons will likely be unpunished, while villagers will pay for everything.

To vote, please use the referendum skull in the Game Room at the entrance of Golgothica. Only Golgothica SGS players (minimum age: 3 days) can vote.

PS: Someone asked if we are going to have an Outlaw/Knight group in Golgothica, if the YES wins.
The answer is NO.
If the YES wins, it is likely that we will add a job for Vampire/Demons/Werevolves as ‘Bounty Hunter’, and those who commit crime will be hunted for a bounties etc.
Also the jury will be form by Predators groups.
Anyway the details on how this is going to work will be discussed later on.

SGS HUD & Meter v 2.13 Released

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

The justice (law & order) item has been modified :

1) once it is used, it gives a warning to the perpetrator that he is under arrest and advise him to run.

2) to avoid the arrest, the perpetrator should run as far as possible from the officer of the law.

3) if the perpetrator teleports out, he *will* get arrested for sure.

4) within 3 and 11 seconds, if the perpetrator is within 10 meters from the officer of the law, then the arrest will be successful

5) The 50%-50% chance has been removed. But it is still valid the requirement that a criminal should have 2 confirmed crimes (older than 3 days).

Upgrades are always free and available in the game room. This is not a mandatory release yet. In order to use the new skill in KOS, knights should wear HUD v 2.13.
