Automated Multiplayer Updates/2020 April
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Minor adjustment to updates channel to restore website updates list. This shouldn't have any in-muck impact, but if you find you're not seeing update messages now, then... well, you probably won't see this."
Avatar says, "Item (1586130670) placed onto the poll board by Inutt, called 'Comm channel auto-subscriptions. +poll/view Comm channel auto-subscriptions to look at and vote in this poll."
Avatar says, "Poll 'Comm channel auto-subscriptions' has ended."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Everyone's custom titles should now be displayed correctly on the comm system again. New titles should also be stored correctly in future."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Following the recent poll, option #4 (a suggestion by [Fauna]) has now been implemented. Yes, it wasn't on the poll - I didn't think of it at the time :-) Hopefully everyone will be happy with the result though, since it means all three of the poll options are now implemented: By default, no channels will be automatically joined or left when you log in and enabled channels will remain as they were last time you disconnected. Channels now have a new option, #onlogin, which can be set to on or off to automatically join or leave the channel when you log in. Set it to clear to return to the default. Syntax: pub #onlogin=on"
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Minor update to yesterday's update: The comm channel onlogin setting syntax has changed from pub #onlogin=on to pub #onlogin on for consistency with other options."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Summon Descriptions mpool has been implemented - summoned entities can now be described however you like. See help power renaming for the relevant commands. (Note: Although I'm the one closing the pool, @Hex~ is the staffer that actually did the work)"
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "+request/summary command added to view a summary of the current staff workload. Incindentally, if anyone has an interest in coding and wants to earn some free mako by helping out, do get in touch - we're a little short handed."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Corrected typo in Chimeric Mutant entry."
Avatar says, "Item (1586908768) placed onto the poll board by Miorna, called 'New Lactation Badge Name. +poll/view New Lactation Badge Name to look at and vote in this poll."
Always Opens Her Gates Wide Miorna moofs, "Ever want to make more milk for more children? Zepher INC has you covered! For a low, low sum of Mako, you can have one of our wonderful new inventions that will ensure just that to happen! Motherly Milk item made and added to the Elite Shop. (Note: Currently does nothing pending code updates)."
Avatar says, "Poll 'New Lactation Badge Name' has ended."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Feesh has been turned off and back on again, and should now hopefully snark a little more reliably."
Just a Tinkering Critter skitters out of his quarantine hole while wearing a facemask, holds up a sign that reads "The Social Agent has Dressed to Impress, and have displayed fantastic Showmanship thus far! They've charmed their way into the 10/40 club. Ooh, is it getting hot in here or what?"
Nuku drawls, "mpool no longer says which staffer it is assigned to, just that it was assigned."
The Eternally Hated, Miorna moofs, "Hostile Area Module recipe has been added to the token store! Careful not to get to close to an Area Module, Zephyr is unsure if it would be like putting a Bag of Holding in a Portable Hole or if it would be more like matter and anti-matter colliding."
Just a Tinkering Critter says, "The Life Sapper has crept their way into the 10/40 club! Oh dear, these spooky lads and lasses can now extend their Bloodthirst onto nearby allies. Are they... feeling well? They look as though they're quite... Unliving. Naah, that's just an act. Right? Right?! Someone call a Cleric!""
Just a Tinkering Critter says, "Oh dear... seems the Captivator has finally charmed her way into the 10/40 club. The guards didn't stand a chance, and now they're suffering the aftermath of Carnal Denial. Poor lads and lasses... this devastating demon's Natural Allure has won them entry into the now nearly full club! Just a few more spoilsports left to rope in, then we can party!"
Avatar says, "Item (1587259133) placed onto the poll board by Miorna, called 'Lap's Face. +poll/view Lap's Face to look at and vote in this poll."
Avatar says, "Item 0 taken off the polling board."
Avatar says, "Item (1587259278) placed onto the poll board by Miorna, called 'Lap's Face. +poll/view Lap's Face to look at and vote in this poll."
Avatar says, "Poll 'Lap's Face' has ended."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Feesh has had a talking to, and should no longer be quite so obsessed with Ekos and his mom."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "The part of Flexbot that updates the organ size table on the wiki has been taken outside and shot. As a result, that page will no longer be updated automatically until someone fixes the code."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Organ Sizes Table wiki page reverted to last known good (or at the very least, more complete) state."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Comm channels should now do a slightly better job of handling ^ characters when they aren't being used to set colours."
Just a Tinkering Critter says, "After a lot of experimentation, many lost fingers and probably a few lawsuits, the Cryoblaster has been released as a token recipe. Don't expect to freeze things instantly though, it's not a miracle weapon, though modded right it's got the potential to chill things down to a crawl. Enjoy, and remember. Zephyr INC is not responsible for any injuries, losses of limbs, spontaneous equipment failure, property damages or death."
Just a Tinkering Critter says, "The Brother's Keeper has scurried their way into the 10/40 club. Almost everyone is here! I think we are only missing two or three more folks! Anyway, these Fleet-Footed healers have learned the secret of applying Curative Wards, and while they are single-target oriented, never underestimate their potency as a dedicated support. And now for a PSA from your friendly neighborhood Critter. "Take some time and hug your healer. Your life is literally in their hands." That is all!"
Just a Tinkering Critter says, "The Attention Grabbing modifier's description was updated to reflect its ability to grant two ranks of Taunting Strikes to a minion when used on one."
Just a Tinkering Critter says, "The Inflatable Dummy has been made better! (To be fair it didn't do much to start with.) It now boasts a THICKER health pool as well as more reactive to its name, making it quite... annoying, to deal with. Lastly, it now has Arm Flail which is... as annoying as it sounds. But hey, Wacky Flailing Inflatable Tube Man! I'll be keeping a close eye on its performance and on how commonly it is being used. Feedback appreciated on any potential exploits regarding its new stats."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Flexbot has been taken outside and shot once again to prevent it updating the organ size wiki table. Hopefully this time it will not rise from the dead as a zombie again."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Color Chooser support added to Dairaiju."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Clydesdale Stud updated with Color Chooser support."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Color Chooser support added to Diamond Drake."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Leather Mistress updated for color chooser support."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Leather Mistress given Kemonomimi support and color chooser includes all body parts, now."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Harbinger Lynx has been given color chooser support."
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "Mischievous Nogitsune has been given Color Chooser support."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "The April Bonanza mako has now been fully handed out via a new (if rather inefficient) bit of patched code. You should all now have five mako more than you did previously - you can check with +account history to see if you have received it, please let staff know if you haven't. If you're one of the lucky people that @Nuku accidentally awarded the bonus to twice, you get to keep the extra! Remember to give him a hug next time you see him."
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "Strike that - the program crashed"
Doctorrent Glitch churrs adorably, "The Mountain Trail just got a bit snekier with the appearance of the Rattler. Get bit!"
Reaper of Code Inutt says, "This scheduled message is being broadcast after I've gone to bed, but if you're seeing it, then either the bonanza mako has finished being handed out now, or the program crashed again. Previous message (probably) applies now :-)"
