I should mention, to fix the 0xa0 problem if you can run sed do:

sed -e 's/\xa0/ '/g < infile > outfile

If you can't run sed you have no idea what I'm talking about, look into cygwin for windows.

Craig, what does your tool do and what is it written in?  I've got a Java world database program.  Keeps track of the worlds I've seen, the first time I saw it, the last time I saw it, and the IND, POP, METAL, etc (everything on the printout) from the last time I saw it.

I wrote it to help mapping.  Lets say you see W1(2, 3, 4), and W8(3, 9, 10).  It will show W3 connects to both 1 and 8.

Vectrex,

Although there are players who know each other for years and some like to ally repeatedly, there are plenty of us who ally one game and don't ally in others. MOST Starweb players try not to backstab, so sorry if you have experienced some turning on you. Of course, it happens, but there is actually a low percentage of that happening, especially to new players.

Lin,

No, the aggressors killing my apostle converts didn't do me any good as I was on a jihad. They were chewing up converts and taking worlds from me. No benefits there.

Robert,

All NPCs are in clans, but it is not by kindred. Sometimes it's by their common names or themes of names. Some clans will be set to attack any character who has attacked a clan member before and other clans don't care. There's no way to tell until you attack one. NPCs aren't worth much, but you can sleep them and take prizes off of them.

There is a monster clan of Chinese Foxes (they initially show up as a duplicate of another character in the dungeon). Once you kill a Chinese Fox, they all will attack you when encountered.

There are disguise prizes that will stop the clan vendetta as the character no longer looks like the one that attacked them.

Cheers,
Paul

That's interesting.  First, I didn't preview my empty post two posts up.  When I hit 'post' I got the expected result.

Better, I never made the preceding post (whiskey tango foxtrot).  That post was made a couple months ago when I first realized previewing posts was A Bad Thing (tm).

Um, whiskey tango foxtrot.  I just edited an entry, and it now shows up as an mt entry.  So not only can we not preview out posts, but if we see them live and edit them they also show up blank?

No wonder this site is dead.

That is a curious one. I partially built a tool myself a while ago, but I don't have any new single turn printouts I can test it on. (I'm only playing in a multi game at the moment, and I never got around to modifying my tool to accommodate them.)

Return to the board index.
