    In this tweet, @Chris says that he might have a time controlling POT deco in the next patch. Did this make it in? Also, what ever happened with the weather control POT deco?

    My POT lights coming on at dusk would be wonderful and they do not need a walking mesh. Or maybe conversationalist could have a routine based on TOD also. Oh Oh and one more thing, how about a HERD of cats or rabbits or cows running thru town at 5pm every day.

    Still waiting for that pot weather control, and with the time controlling deco it would be early morning with fog at Dark Bayou ;)

    I do think they are working on something, but possibly not quite there yet. Wouldn't want any bugs or any conflicts with other parts of our program.
    I'm not saying I've seen it, I'm also not saying I've not seen it. But I have seen storm like effects without clouds, nor wind, nor rain, yet do or can changing time!

    :eek: "The following things are currently on display inside The Time Tunnel for fear their highly experimental natures would explode the world" :confused:!'

    I don't know anything more about such things or what we could expect, but I do have reasons to believe they are working on many such "somethings" o_O~Time Lord~

    There were 2 given out by Chris for testing as prototypes. The visuals likely will change from what those look like, and will likely be on the store for R93. The weather machines were added to the store already, but don't become available until July 23rd.

    But this one would just make the weather clear. I'll make more weather types shortly. Just want to get feedback on the clear weather one first.

    @Umire Moon and I were testing them (time travel) out earlier today in Wizard's Rest. There will be another test in the morning, checking to see if our friend Avatar @Umire Moon 's rent depleted while we were changing time together LOL Avatar Umire Moon is very new to our game and as such his rent was his first concern!

    So, if you are a Lord or Lady who wishes to use your Lordy Powers to grant our new friend a tax credit for his efforts, you can easily find his place by following Wizard's Rest's fast travel signs and choosing, "Top of the Hill", where his row home is located directly accross the road from it (look for the hanging lanterns).


    With Great Thanks to Our First Test Victim... err... umm... "Time Research Explorer" @Umire Moon !'
    aka,
    Our game's first Avatar to ever explore these machines in action!
    :D~Time Lord~

    Imo The non POT part of the game needs all that.

    Like mobs coming out only at certain times of the day (ie wolves at dusk), and as far as I know the lights in story towns don't change according to the time of day either.

    Oh ya, fog I would love too for my poor ol' neglected town, hehe. Once I get good feedback on clear, I'll do all other weather types at the same time. Those will likely be R93 as well.
