Threads in KR

    I've been grumbling in several threads about how I can never find any threads on Dark Wisps, while everyone maintains they find plenty.

    Someone pointed out that the KR client may be the issue. I have found out that is the issue.

    The threads have absolutely no graphic in KR. Or if they do, its pure black and cannot be discerned in the loot view.

    I have found you need to change the view of the loot box... so that you get an itemized list. Also, if you have the traditional "jumble view," you will see a white square briefly if you did in fact get a thread in the loot.

    Using this method, I have collected 5 Threads of Life and 2 Threads of Fate in the last hour.

    Much better!

    The problem with threads in KR is that they DO NOT HAVE A GRAPHIC.

    Seems like the devs seemed to forget to add one in their current lack of doing anything in KR anyway.

    However I found a trick that works in Grid mode as well. Look for two side-by-side "empty" grid slots next to the one the gold appears. Mouse over them and one should say Thread of Whatever.

    Generally non-thread spawning wisps only have one empty slot next to the gold, thread bearing wisps will have two.

    The bigger problem is that the devs NEED to import a thread graphic for KR as well as make sure that the turn-in system going in next week or so WORKS with KR.

    Yeah, we know the initial Moonglow event (nights 1 and 2) were "optimized for 2d", but that's NO excuse for leaving things out of KR entirely.

    Personally, I find it insulting (not that I'm not used to it having played 3d and now KR and dealing with certain people on this board), but from the Dev Team... shouldn't be happening.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say "bashing", however there really are becoming less and less excuses as to why there has been no work done for the KR client in terms of getting some LONG standing problems fixed and patched down to us (or if needs be I'd be willing to re-download and reinstall if it meant getting a HUGE update to the client compared to what is the current release).

    But at the very least, they should have at least gotten in the graphics for freaking THREAD.

    I like KR, I think it's what UO needs to progress and continue being a reasonably mainstream MMOG rather than a miniscule niche market MMOG leaving the superior skill-based model behind in favor of more and more level-class-raid clones, but the Devs have made it a VERY frustrating endeavor lately... even for the most staunch of supporters.
     
  6. To be fair though, Didn't the devs say at the beginning of the event that it was not for KR?

    ...

    They said it was "optimized for 2d" referring to the 2 day event in Moonglow specifically. Never did they say "not for KR".

    BIG difference between the two statements.

    I would point out again that the first stress test of the Moonglow event happened long, long before the KR beta (the map and dialog strings have been there for the better part of a year). I don't think it was originally intended to ever see KR (not that it should really be allowed to be an excuse).

    Right now there are two issues with KR and the current event... the threads and the roof to the tent.

    Beyond that, I've been running around Dark Moonglow killing and being killed by stuff without any issues (ok, the first couple of nights were lag-filled and crashed a bit on night two, but afterwards, it's been smooth for me).

    The roof to the tent I think I can understand, but the thread should be fixed.

    - Agreed. I've played the event in both clients. Threads entice me.
    Still it may be worth noting that GrimmOmen has mentioned they are done with KR art for now, with a lot of art updates hangin' in the pipeline [​IMG]

    I am not sure about the comment that the threads have no graphic! I play KR pretty much exclusively and do not have any problems seeing the threads... I do use the grid form packs rather than freeform.

    I know the frustration well, though I had a bit of luck yesterday getting a couple of shields a couple of swords (never hurts to scavenge), a Thread of Life (Hey Devs... you MIGHT want to consider patching KR the Thread graphics ya know!), and a cloak.

    hhmmm... Question... Do you use Legacy graphics mode?

    That might be why you see them and others don't...

    I see them and yes, I have legacy mode turned on. Just logged in to give KR another chance ....... for 30 minutes, then back again to 2d. Can't play it with my warrior.
