Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

It's an interesting concept, considering that I'll be even more paranoid about robbing than I am in the normal game with a good house. But I'm not sure if anybody would even try robbing each other in pemadeath; ukuko didn't rob me, and I haven't robbed him, and probably won't ever, from the looks of his house. It might be a long wait until easy houses show up before any robberies happen, especially when there's also the normal server as an alternative.

Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

Well, someone robbed two people (including me!).

Also, someone has died (I can see such things in the admin view).

But yeah, people are being more careful.  Still, only 6 people have tried it so far....

Come on!  I need more testers on this server.

Of course I couldn't help but sabotage the houses as well, but let's call it morbid curiosity.

Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

Well that person that died was me, I was careless and forgot to check the wiring in my house was hooked up properly and ended up trapped between trapdoors and a locked door. I learned a number of lessons from that, but I'm dead.

I made a house.  It got robbed after 2 scouts, my wife clubbed.  I suck at Castle Doctrine since blueprints.

Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

Hmm... I wonder.... is that color confusion between the two an issue?

I'm sticking to a very specific color palette with this game, and I'm not sure that there are other colors that look quite "bright" enough to be a light.

Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

I tweaked the colours of my objects a little bit, mainly to avoid any confusion between indicator tiles and electric flooring.

I like that a lot! I'd also prefer more than the current contrast.

Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

I just had someone die in my house.  And now they are dead.  Permanently.

The kicker here is the guy had already robbed me and was returning to kill all my pitbulls and (I am assuming) my children (seeing as my wife is sadly deceased).  He didn't seem to notice it was a one-time rob deal.

I LOLed.

Re: Try the new Perma-Permadeath server

Taking this server down, for now.  Will bring a v9 version of it back later, after v9 is smoothed out.
