    Food change is really cool.

    For Billboard meh....it's still not enough, all party members should spawn in the same point.

    Good small patch, thanks guys.

    Please keep knocking out the small easy stuff in frequent patches. There are a couple changes in particular that need to be looked at before others:
    • billboard needs to be moved to player cities
    • market access needs to be available in player cities in addition to NPC cities

    Gonna be nice to have a fair start when loading into a village. Food change is awesome. I can stop eating bread and eat some decent food for duels. :)

    Billboards in npc cities is the only thing keeping people blue right now. Until other measures are in place to keep indiscriminate killing of players in lawful areas to a minimum they should not be moved.

    The village change should be a huge improvement for the following reasons:

    1. Greatly decreases the chances of zoning into a wof
    2. Depending on where you spawn you may get a chance to utilize stealth
    3. Scouting will be a more skillful and engaging element
    4. Ranged focused players are much more likely to spawn in a fair spot
    5. Your chances of escaping after zoning into an unfavorable situation are significantly higher

    Figured I'd mention it :)

    I disagree. I'm blue and when I find someone the last thing I care about is whether I or they are blue or red... I kill them and if I need to go spend 5 minutes in a dungeon to get a couple alignment then so be it.

    This will be addressed as part of our alignment changes. We're removing the ability to earn back alignment through killing and using timers instead. This removes the ability to "quickly work it off" and requires players to think about their actions a bit more.

    they have already said they are going to add them to player citys which the need to. everyone went blue to live in npcs, so now no one lives in thier holdings which makes them that much more useless

    We know houses have potential to be a problem and we have taken some steps to alleviate that, but how often do you get stuck in trees and rocks when teleporting somewhere now? I've never had that issues so I'm curious.

    How often am I porting somewhere, where I can land randomly in a 100m radius? So no, as of right now I don't get stuck in those places. But I HAVE gotten stuck in houses every third or fourth house recall, and about 1/20 billboard ports i'm stuck on the village bindstone. So I think it's safe to say being stuck in all the of the above is not out of the question.

    I am glad to hear you foresaw this and have attempted to take some steps so this doesn't happen.

    You can also pop up under the world forever falling and are forced to relog and pop up at your bindstone.
    --- Post updated ---
    I get stuck about 50% of the time when I port to my house and have to /stuck... feelsbad!

    Billboards won’t make people live in holdings bud. They have to force you to defend your territory through conflict and reduce the infinite amount of holdings one clan can have in one way or another. Then and only then will you have people living in their holdings.


    Edit: was gonna respond to cap but kilrAin covered it.
