Version 13 Released

This release changes the robbery end condition so that an empty vault that has already been robbed by someone else cannot be reached.  This means that reaching an empty vault over and over can no longer be used to cumulatively add damage to a house (damage is saved when the vault is reached or family members are killed).

A "safe movement mode" toggle has been added (to help out in tense moments---this mode enables Enter-confirmation for each move that is made).

Re: Version 13 Released

I think I found a bug. In my tapes, somebody robs me, resulting in an empty vault. Somebody then dies in my house. The next tape has the money re-split between my vault and wife, despite me not logging in between (the death counter didn't reset, so I know I didn't.) What happened? Does death reset the vault money?

Yeah, it's not supposed to work that way.  Sounds like a bug.  Thanks for reporting it!

Re: Version 13 Released

Hmm... I think I found the tapes that you're talking about.

This was several lives ago for you now, but the tapes are still in my admin view.

I see Nathan Peter Penn hit your vault for $289

Your house at the time looked like this:

IMAGE REDACTED FOR PRIVACY

Your vault became empty.

Then Alvin Devin Howard came in and left.  Then he returned with a two crowbars and meat.  He used one crowbar on a window, then died to a pitbull.  Both of his tapes show the vault empty.

At that point, his remaining tools ($60 worth) go into your vault.

Finally, Richard Darren Hahn comes in and hits your vault for $60 worth of tools.


On ALL of these tapes, I'm seeing Robyn carrying $568.


Are you sure it wasn't just confusion over why the vault became non-empty again?  It actually had no money in it... just the tools from the dead robber.

I also could be looking at the wrong tapes, but I scanned the whole databases of logs, and these are the only tapes that come close to matching what you're describing here (vault hit again after a robber dies).

Ah, tools! I didn't think about that when writing my initial post, and couldn't check again once I died. My bad. tongue

Also, I guess I won't be using that design again.

Err... sorry, but the buttons were visible through the windows anyway, right?  I didn't think I was giving anything away.  Just to be safe, I'll remove that image from the forums.
