Ricardo Posters still hanging on Skara Brae Trammel Bank, Oceania.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by imported_DarkVoid, Mar 18, 2008.

  1. There are two of these, one on the South wall, near the west end. The other is on the East wall, just around from the door.

    Could an EA/Mythic Dev please look into cleaning up the posters?

    Cheers ...

    I think its cool
    A reminder of something that was once such a big thing!

    Next thing, people will ask for them to remove bank doors because they get in the way!

    it'd be better to delete them than having a lot of objects that point to non-existent content. A newer player could easily stumble on something and be lead on a wild goose chase. It'd be like when the town criers yelled about events weeks after they happened. [​IMG]

    They probably should have added a artifact rarity on them all after the event and let them be stealable... that could have been cool.

  7. I did a sweep of all the shards and I think I got all of them from every shard.

    Can you do something about cheats/hacks/dupes too? (hint hint: put duped items on NPC vendors...)

    Chrissay, I saw one of those posters still up in Luna on Napa or Origin last night. It was on the east-facing wall of the center section, but to the north (by the provisioners). I think most of the other posters I've seen have been on the southern corner of that east-facing wall.

    Not being rude but... why does it matter if the posters stay? They aren't adversely affecting anyone's gameplay and truthfully they add a bit to the shards to show "hey remember when this happened..."

    [/ QUOTE ]I don't exactly have anything against them.
    But, they shouldn't be there.
    The posters are to advertise that Ricardo was wanted.
    He's no longer wanted, since he's been caught.
    And tried.
    And, now awaits punishment (for a really, really long time).

    So, remnants of events?
    Good.
    With the caveat that they should be appropriate.
    A plaque, commemorating the capture of Ricardo? Could be nice.
    Posters informing that the already captured criminal requires capturing? Not so much.
     
  16. There's still a poster hanging on the east wall of West Britain Bank on Siege Perilous.

    Stealable is the way to go. After the event, make 'em stealable but unannounced.

    Only one of that group (RIcardo posters) available to a player. So he can't steal all 20 or whatever. He can tell his friends after he gets the first one, but at least one guy won't end up with all 20.

    I fear I must report a failure for a particular shard and bank that still has two.

    But I think this now highlights a more serious problem than a small amount of event debris: that you appear to lack the tech to be able to do a sweep of the shard databases to find all instances of an item. Obviously it has been done before to sweep homes and vaults for particular exploited item destructions, but either it has to be done as an exception or the tech you have on hand can't easily sweep for world items. This would seem to be a missing element of a dev world-maintenance toolkit.

    Which is why I'd really like EA to put one of each of these sort of items in a proper 'museum' building on each shard, so we can show folks that there was a history....
