Yikes ...Say its not true? I love my over filled water pitchers!!!!!!!!!!
I just hope existing pitchers aren't broken by this change.
I agree. Its a real pain to keep hitting that water after each 5 use when you got 400+ plants going at once.
It's still working on production shards, I'm making a few extra's right now, just in case they don't "fix" the existing pitchers when it goes live.
there's been an exhaustive & sometimes rather emotional line on the topic HERE to be sure.
If I didn't hate doing the same thing over and over, I would make a few.
If they still work after the patch, I can try to sell them for millions!! hehe
Damn. And I was finally going to start playing again.
I said when Sak left we'd get screwed over again like the years before she became a dev.
There is a development to this, please read the recent bug fix info:
Bug Fixes - 5/21/10
Players are now able to chop up water barrels and tubs when they are not in a house
Water pitchers will now have 40 charges instead of 5 – If you fill the the pitchers from a water barrel it will only give you 5 charges so make sure you use a water trough.
That's a nice fix to the fix --- Super!
It's a fix, but it's not the same. Honestly, 40 charges when growing hundreds of plants at a time compared to the pitcher before is lame.
My new Heartwood Water Trough
Okay, that looks very nice. BTW, how've you been ss?
I been uber fab Flora thanks ~ Hope you as well & having a happy spring season !!
more fun w/troughs - one of ye old ones
troughs look good and I really, really like that Hearth of the Homefire chimney coverup! good job!
Here are some water troughs that I use for deco. Too bad I don't grow plants in this house!
As I recall the thing with overfilling was open to discussion in any forum. It was not a bug or exploit and using it was not in violation of the toc. It was an easter egg given to the gardening community by OSI. I think it is completely unfair to take this one and only advantage away. If Gardening was involved with pvp the way Blacksmithing (make weapons), Tailoring (make armor) then it would become a crafting character template and it would go to 120 skill cap. Maybe that is the solution, a pvp botanist that in battle could drop seeds that would instantly grow in to tangling vines or deadly poison ivy or vines full of fire ants.
Given our pitches now fill to 40 doses each from from in-house water trough (and each trough does how many per day ~) - it's not a problem whatsoever for the meager gardener or the over zealous gardener - actually, I like the gardening even moreso now with the utilization of my trough - even added a new heartwood model. Shoot 5 pitchers within couple seconds provides 200 shots of H20. Nothing unfair atall --- Allz well that ends well.
If your using a real client then one macro will refill all pitchers with just one click 10 pitchers * 40 uses = 400
Actually, pitchers created using a "magic wave" were around long before gardening.
But ^^ THAT ^^ IS a fun notion to imagine - just for a moment
Have you been hanging out with Hen & his primates?
They are listening to us Check out this http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=1055
That's great news!
I went to test center to try it out but it's been so long since I have been there it took me a while just to figure out how to raise my stats. NOw I need to equipt myself so I don't die easily to the water elementals.
I love the fact they listened to us. Also love that thread was getting kinda long about people complaining, and instead of telling us they had a fix, they just let it slide haha
