Automated Multiplayer Updates/2020 September
Dog Song says, "Previously, the upgrades Concentrated Upgrade, Enhanced Duration, and Trained Skill would unintentionally increase the duration of repeats, causing their damage ticks to be doled out more slowly. Now, a provisional fix has been put in to match increased Status Duration with equal negative RepeatAttackDuration. Code changes pending for a more elegant fix."
Code Spelunker Inutt codes, "Roles have returned to the party command! (since I accidentally broke them when fixing merc levels recently). Role colours may need adjustment - feel free to suggest better ones."
Dog Song says, "The Heroic Outlaw class is now a touch less selfless. Alms Wide Open's NotUser limitation has been removed, allowing the user to enjoy some extra spoils and healing."
Dog Song says, "Updated the Pacifist merit description to make it clearer that you can still search in hostile areas for combat gains."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "The shift save and shift load commands for saving and loading forms should now store your base form as well as actual form, if your actual form is a template form like latex suit. Form."
Dog Song says, "After some waffling, the Concentrated DPS role has been changed. Avoidance 1->0, Overkill 0->1. This should allow single-target DPS setups to be slightly more effective in doling out damage in harder fights, while still leaving Big Hit/Instant DPS roles as valid options for Endurance 2 and greater survivability."
Dog Song says, "Want to see more variety in the DPS meta? Want to hit hard without going full Kaiju? Want to longer! Sniper has been buffed, losing its partial 0.5 Fast Loading in favor of 1.5->2 Damage. Compare with Monster Monarch, which has similar combat skills but leans more toward durability. Since no partial Damage or Fast Loading roles exist, this should also keep Combat Skills at nice, whole numbers for clearer function and comparison."
Dog Song says, "For whatever reason, Sniper didn't have the Big Hits flag. Now it does."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "Mako store on the web fixed so it displays correctly again. There's a *small* possibility Zephyr have lost all record of an item they used to sell there, so get in touch if you spot something missing."
Dog Song says, "Removed the legacy "Role: " section in class rpinfo descriptions. Class flags have made these redundant, many mentioned that the class is "Technical" (which no longer applies), and this helps avoid confusion with the complementary Role system."
Dog Song says, "If for whatever reason you are seeking specifically Pierce damage, the Crossbow and Bow of Mercy can now be stance-switched between Critical and Pierce."
Avatar says, "Item (1599343120) placed onto the poll board by Inutt, called 'Recursive Template Forms. +poll/view Recursive Template Forms to look at and vote in this poll."
Avatar says, "Item (1599347520) placed onto the poll board by Song, called 'NPC Stretch Goal Poll. +poll/view NPC Stretch Goal Poll to look at and vote in this poll."
Dog Song says, "Alice the Gun Bunny's arsenal of unique weapons has received a balancing pass to compensate for their inability to be improved with recipe modifiers and overall precious status. Repeat weapons included universally received 10 base damage or higher. American 180: Damage 3->10, RepeatAttack 20->10, Cooldown 16000->12000, Upkeep 15->10. C96 Schnellfeuer: Damage 8->16, RepeatAttack 15->8, RepeatAttackDuration 5->4, Upkeep 15->10. Makarov: Damage 16->20. Makarov PMM: Damage 18->22. MAS 49: Damage 34->38, Loadout 25->20, Upkeep 15->10. MP 18: Damage 8->14, RepeatAttack 10->6, RepeatAttackDuration 5->3, Upkeep 15->10. M1903 Springfield: Damage 38->42, Loadout 25->20. SKS: Damage 29->34, Loadout 20->15. The Huntress: Damage 14->16, added Pierce damage variance. Thompson Submachine Gun: Damage 6->12, RepeatAttack 15->10, Loadout 25->20, Upkeep 15->10. Vlad: Damage 10->12, Upkeep 10->5"
Dog Song says, "Commando has been slightly buffed. The class power Covering Fire had its charge reduced from 0->-1000, making it much more low-commitment for the variable payoff."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "All farverb commands updated! The code has been pulled kicking and screaming all the way from the late 90s to the 21st century (seriously - it dates from 1996). It now displays the verb list properly, has a proper #help page, and does it with approximately 66% less code!"
Dog Song says, "Bounty Hunter adjusted. Outnumbered 1->0, Durability 0->1. Mild net buff and synergizes with the class power Kevlar Vest, as well as more thematically appropriate."
Dog Song says, "The Pack Rat class got a bit more... focused. Controlled Burst 1->0, Opportunity 0->1. This should help them better fill their buffer/debuffer niche, as well as allow reaching Opportunity 3 with roles."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "This is a definitely not a test message. If you see this, you're imagining it. Please ignore any imaginary updates."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "This update is also imaginary. If you did not see the previous update, please ignore the word 'also' at the beginning of this one."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "In a continuing series of 'things you did not see', please ignore this message too."
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "This update exists, but in some places"
Code Spelunker Inutt says, "Despite scattered reports of recent updates, this is the only recent update. Logs of updates have returned to the wiki. Unfortunately this only affects updates going forward, and everything between march and september will remain missing unless someone manually adds those records."
Just a Tinkering Critter squees, "Fixed a bug with Degeneration's rpinfo not showing up properly for some strange reason..."
Dog Song says, "Opportunity's rpinfo description has been cleaned up to read a little more smoothly."
Just a Tinkering Critter squees, "The Repairing Modifier now applies RegenDebuff instead of HealgainDebuff. Its brother, Suppressing, is the one that handles Healgain, and with Repairing handling the Regen status, it seemed most fitting that it is updated for the sake of consistency."
Avatar says, "Poll 'Recursive Template Forms' has ended."
Avatar says, "Poll 'NPC Stretch Goal Poll' has ended."
