As R12 is near an end, I thought I'd post some things I thought were cool/good about it... 1. No crashes. I use the 64-bit client since it has always been more stable for me than the 32-bit client. Even then, I had numerous crashes on scene loads-- at Owl's Head especially. I had no such crashes this release. I reported in the Bugs forum the only times R12 crashed on me. 2. Jumping spiders. I don't know if it was client/server lag resolution, or what, but I had two wolf spiders jump on me during this release. The first was a large wolf spider near the ruins in corner of West Ravenswood. I ran up on to the rocks just to west of the ruins, and the spider jumped from the ground onto the rocks. It was at night and I had it selected in combat. Suddenly there's a dark, red limned spider shape flying through the air towards me. The other one was a smaller wolf spider near the rocks at another location in the scene. 3. CyberTraveller could hold its own. There were a few times when I was killed by the spider spit bug in the Myserious Swamp. I left the computer during the death time, and ended up away from it longer than I had intended. When I came back the first time, my character was deep into combat with a lich fighter. The lich was down to 1/3 HP when it killed CyberMe. A quick add showed that my character was not at full health when it attacked-- othwerise it would have been a close one. The other two times, CyberMe dispatched a couple of red spiders while I was away. 4. Unexpected help. I was surprised when the Veimor AI attacked a wolf I was battling. That was the first time I'd seen an NPC AI do something like that. He stole the kill. I also had a couple of skeletons attack large red spiders I was fighting while in the Mysterious Swamp. The skeletons stole my kills on a couple of occasion. I didn't go after Veimor AI for its infraction, but I did go after the real skinny guys when they did it.
