    Here is an early rough draft of the Release 72 Instructions Post. Lots of stuff is still in progress, including the text itself, features, content, etc. Some things listed here are not yet in the build and might NOT make the release!

    As always this thread is for editing the post itself, clarifying the contents, etc. It is NOT about debating game features, decisions, etc. Please start other threads for that.

    Also as usual the links to instructions and known issues are pointing to R71 so I don't need to be told that. :)

    I also don't need to be reminded about blank areas or places that say <insert more here> or are blank. I got those. :)

    Also please DO NOT give feedback on the ORIGINAL text that I cut and paste from the Quarterly Schedule Post. As a rule we never edit the original text. We only put new text afterwards in italics. That way we make sure everyone knows we aren't hiding anything, especially if something is delayed. ;)

    • Unicorn Stew: What kind of horrible monster kills and eats unicorns?!?!? People!
    Very minor thought - but maybe change "People" to Avatars or Outlanders - for immersion?

    I think "people" is perfect.

    It is unclear from the text if the new POT animals use the POT's NPC allocation limit, item limit, or something else. Consider clarifying so purchasers are aware of the choices they might be making.

    Under the REGS and Veggies Phase you state:

    Note that at this time reagents were not changed even though they're technically part of this group of items. In Release 72 we continued altering values, adjusted agriculture outputs and further tweaked the merchant prices.

    For clarification did you mean at THAT time because you were speaking of Phase 1 or are you speaking to Phase 2 and they ARE or NOT changed?

    From the sentences i'm not sure if that is supposed to be past or present tense because it seems more changes were in fact made this coming release. :)

    Thanks!

    We had to push this deliverable. Please note the OP

    "Lots of stuff is still in progress, including the text itself, features, content, etc. Some things listed here are not yet in the build and might NOT make the release!"

    Does it make sense that a virtuous person, eating the meat of a virtuous being (unicorn) should get a bonus? I think you have it backwards.

    The same argument was made about the potions and other craftables made from unicorns. Officially, it is so players will trade items for what they need vs. what they can get. It would still be nice if there was a way to do this yourself, a.k.a., make it work offline.

    Is this just a generic "Brown Spider" or a named?

    Where are these recipes available? Generic cooking merchant, regional, or supply bundles?

    Are these just decos, or would they happen to be storage containers? (If not, PLEASE make one!)

    It might not hurt to list the item names with the animal, so:
    • Saucer of Milk: Siamese & Tabby Cats (Crown Shop)
    etc. You could remove the example from the text then. I'm also assuming this is just a deco space, and not an NPC space, for the POT owner? If not, that should be clarified.

    Chris has been saying he plans to turn PVP looting off for at least part of this coming release. Is that still the plan? If so it should be mentioned in the release instructions as well as in an in game message of the day. People need to be told both that looting is being turned off and that it is a test which will end on a specific date, at which time a permanent change might be considered. It is not a valid test if people don't know about it and you don't want to scare away people who like the status quo by assuming the change is permanent until/unless it is actually made permanent.

    @DarkStarr @Chris The notes say: Added a chance for a Tier 12 Brown Spider to sometimes spawn at night. Note that this is the first time this tier of spider will appear! We have had tier 12 and tier 15 spiders for a long time. Is this a typo? Did you mean a higher level spider than a destroyer? Tier 17-20?
