Bug Fix: 12/7/16
Hello again! It's time for some updates on the eternal hunt for
As some of you know firsthand, we tried to fix some problems with the Quest system yesterday with no luck. Today we've put in place a few changes that I hope will suffice. For one, we are not currently able to auto-decline the Hourly and Daily Quests. I've added some text at the top of each page that hopefully explains to new users that there is NO detriment to Declining these Quests.
The other problem we had in the Quest system was duplicates. For some reason, the Story Quests were duplicating so that you would see 2 of the same Quest. One fix we tried actually duplicated the Requirements and Rewards as well, which was a big mistake. We've rolled that back and we're trying something new now. Story Quests should now become available to you only when you click the "I can help!" button. We believe this may eliminate the duplication problem. Please report here if you still get duplicates!
In some good news: we heard your suggestions to add some way to check which Tools are Equipped in your Kitchen. Check out the new tabs! We hope this makes Cooking more convenient for everyone.
Finally: the Marketplace is done! WAHOO! We're making our last round of testing, but this means you should be able to use the Marketplace to set up your Store very, very soon!
As always, thank you all for your help making Tattered Weave the best it can be!
Edit: Club reminded me of one other minor update that happened last night. Tabs are now labeled with the page titles! No more clicking on 6 tabs to find the right one! YAY!
New Items: Books!
Reading by Candle Light
Ah, there goes another brown out...
What is Lycus doing over in the Lab that is using so much power? I’m sorry everyone, I intended to have a much bigger book release for you tonight but when the lights keep flickering like this I can’t focus! Hopefully the few books I did manage to get together will tide you over until all of this settles down. Still... I hope Lycus is being safe with whatever he’s doing...
Our first book is a good one for younger Kith who might not have developed an interest in reading yet. It's a fun Sticker Activity Book! I will remind you to please make sure the stickers are going on appropriate sticker locations and not other books. Or desks... or any school property. I shouldn’t have to say that, but here we are. Disclaimers.
Next is the enigmatic and exciting world of cryptography. Secret Codes can teach you all the ins-and-outs creating your own codes as well as how to crack some of the most famous codes we still know about from back before the Cataclysm. This provides not just a great experience for learning problem solving, but you and your Kith can develop you own secret messaging system like spies! Um… Don't use this as an excuse to pass notes in class. Encoded or not, it is still against the rules.
And our final book, Circle of Life, explains the order of the natural world. Life and death, while sad, are a fact of life and a necessity for how we live. This book takes a less grim look at the subject to help explain to young children or inexperienced Kith not just the idea of the food chain, but how decomposition helps everyone.
W-wha- ugh, well there goes the power again. I swear, if he starts a fire on his half of the building I’ll… Headmaster Artois has seem so worried lately. Um, do you think you could check in with Lycus down in the lab? I'll get these books up on the shelves here in the Campus Supplies in the meanwhile. Maybe take a fire extinguisher with you...
It's time to start bringing in more Story Quests! These take a bit longer to create than Hourly Quests, but the rewards are significant... And this is the first of many to come. Nicholas needs your help to figure out dinner! Visit the Quest Log to learn more.
I've also slipped a few new Hourly Quests into the system for Andre, Robin, Jay, and Miranda. Remember that it make take a couple hours for these to show up for your account, and they each have a small percentage chance of showing up every hour.
We've heard your suggestions for changing the Hourly and Daily Quests such that you don't have to Decline a Quest in order to get a new one. Later this week, we will be updating the Quests so that this change takes place for any Quests that have been declined or ignored. Only the Daily/Hourly Quests that are Active (when you have clicked "Accept") will remain. Thank you all for your feedback!
Experiment Progress: Analytical
Yes! Yes! This is it! The breakthrough I needed! I can all but taste success!
Wha- oh, no, I-I’m not talking about the Beaker. You can have one in the next… uh… whoops, I d-didn’t notice the time - 23 hours.
New Items: Chips and Sandwiches!
An Easy Lunch
Man, I have to make my own lunch today. I'm too lazy- I mean, busy to cook anything more then a sandwich. What do I want... Ham & Cheese? Meh. Peanut Butter & Jelly? Nah, not today. I think we’re out of grape jam anyway... Oh I know, I'll make a nice, simple Grilled Cheese Sandwich for lunch! We've still got some of Dad's homemade White Bread so it should be pretty good I think. Where did they put it- Oh, what? Why is it behind the Breadcrumbs? You can't get away from me, bread, you've got a date with my tummy.
And a sandwich alone does not feed a growing girl so I better bust out the bagged chips. That's right, munchy, crunchy, salty potato chips! I've heard some grumbling going around that the arcade only offers sweet treats - well no more! You want savory? I got savory!
But, uh, man, there are a lot of options here. One... two... thirteen?! Okay Piper, no more ordering inventory when hungry...
Let's see, we've got Cheddar Chips, but I’ve got enough cheese already. Original Chips, eh, those are boring when I have such a vast selection! Hm, maybe BBQ Chips, that would pair well with the cheese. Citrus Chips? Uh, no, that sounds weird. Dill Pickle Chips? Nah, those go with the ham sandwich better. Sweet Chili Chips? Those can go on the maybe list. Sriracha Chips? Nope. Too spicy! Xtreme Heat Chips? No thanks, I like my taste buds! Wasabi Ginger Chips also sound suspiciously spicy. Salt and Vinegar Chips might be good at cutting through any cheese mouth I get... Same with Sour Cream and Onion Chips. Salt and Pepper Chips would be a safe choice... Oh! Perfect! Ketchup Chips! All the flavor of tomato soup with none of the effort making it!
If you want to cook any sandwiches yourself you can get all the recipes over at Jay’s General Store, and I'll have the chips with me in the Arcade just next door!
