    The number of broken things are delah.
    Well, today we've found that nearly everything that uses the image manipulation library, including gallery uploads and most of the admin editors is white-screening. Not sure why yet, but I'm aware of it.

    This appears to be fixed. It worked when I tested it anyway..

    Also ACME Red Boots appear to not interface with the rocket pack now. I don't remember if they were supposed to, but until I can track down the problem with the image library, the item editor won't work, and I can't gain more info for a determination.
    UPDATE: Looks like the reporter of this bug just didn't have all the items for the costume. I show it has currently been made 0 times.
    Rocket Pack
    Acme Battlepants Mark I
    Acme Battleshirt Mark I
    ACME Red Rocket Boots
    Acme Battlegloves Mark I

    Here's some helpful spoiler pages to help jog your memory:

    The <3 Boat and Pinion Sol were live for awhile, but now they're not. (:

    I'm sure there are more issues, as the years are harsh to un-maintained code. Go ahead and report new ones here in this topic and I'll see if I can get to the real showstoppers that interfere with gameplay.

    went to pvp Ignatious in 631 and it whitescreened again
  • Posted By: Ignatious  homeworld | blog | gallery | player profile

    It tells me the player is in another fight.
  • Posted By: munk  homeworld | blog | gallery | player profile

    Yep, PvP in space is broken. it'll whitescreen and you'll be flagged as in a fight. I'll need to set up a dummy target player to test on to track it down. for now make love, not war. (:
  • Posted By: Rakkasan  homeworld | blog | gallery | player profile

    My DoppelPets are now constantly showing as "IN FIGHT!" status when not having any encounter, and can not be manipulated from the left sidebar.

    They can be re-caged from the DoppelPet cage page, but once a new pet is selected, it automatically shows the "IN FIGHT!" status without engaging in any encounters at all.

    It wasn't doing that a few hours ago.

    see post above this. You're fight-flagged. (:
  • Posted By: Rakkasan  homeworld | blog | gallery | player profile

    Well, then. Why I didn't put the two together and figure that obvious bit of gem out all on my own is entirely beyond me.

    In any event, perhaps the code issue is in the DoppelPet parts instead of the actual PvP parts. Who knows... maybe fighting without a critter at your side is an option.

    Thanks for politely pointing out my blindness tho. :D

    I think the sex bombs are not working.... I know I went by at least 2 from other societies (more then once) and didn't have them go off. I can't remember how much they hurt or what triggers them (I did sit by one for a good few minutes with no earth shattering boom).

    Yeah, I'm not even sure exactly how they worked anymore. However, in patrolling around space, I did encounter multiple bombs from other societies, ES, Oddie, Lummie, and they didn't seem to do anything, and were still present later.

    However, in one of the sectors I lay claim to, there was a Triad bomb present, which has since disappeared. So... not sure, but they at least seem to be triggered by something. Somehow.

    I never ever saw them go off, I just realized that my sexiness had dropped, so just keep track of that and if it goes down drastically well...boom

    Okay, it looks like factories aren't working properly.

    I've got them running, staffed, stocked, full shields, charged, all that. No drones are being produced, just doppelpet health and shield charge are tanking every production cycle.

    I just suffered a 50% loss to those things from having maxed it out the hour before. Maybe it's the rundown mechanic for end of the cycle, where factories get pretty rapidly destroyed after the war is over?

    Not sure, but currently is no bueno.

    So, I've pulled the pets to prevent them possibly dying on me for not babysitting them hourly. Let me know if it'd help to have them put back for you to check whatever.

    I've been hit by one. It happened the second time I visited the sector containing that bomb.

    ahh yeah, you're right. the hourly roll is programmed to rapidly discharge facilities in anarchy mode (to wipe them out after a win). I'll fix that.

      Quote "TFwO":

    That appears to be correct for Triad. 1% discount overrides the 1% markup from control percentage - I went Triad and checked. If I recall, it only makes a significant difference when you have a large markup for the number of sectors your society controls. at .05%, the markup and discount are both negligible, not at all worth the ore cost to get it.

    Debugging:
    Array
    (
    [sector_control_percentage] => 0.05
    [cost_multiplier] => 1.05
    [cost_discount] => 1
    [ore_quota] => 5000
    [ore_donated] => 5000
    )
    Cost Mult: 1 Discount: 1
