Sad, hoped I could read them already bevore the Patch would be released ;).

Is the Venalicium Library Adventure allready part of the next DLC or is it still so easy to get to it?

Does 'mod optimization' mean that the modding tools will be released shortly after Patch 11?

What does glory means, does it help my character in any ways? Im asking this because I just finished the Orso Orsi quest expecting an expansion to several attributes but speaking of the devil, glory comes in hand. wa!!

 

What about the sphinx loophole, any chance to fix it in the delayed patch?

 

Is artificing changes OK in the patch?

 

I found a wrong display of info in the game, i.e. I cast the mathematical acuity spell, then description says that the spell should last for 3 days, but the tooltip of the skills that it affects, it says +4 days? looks ridiculous right?(suggestion, instead of displaying the initial duration, why not actual duration of the spell, i.e. init=4 days, after a day curr=3 days)

 

Also, a question about the Item I bought in the giribaldi's shop of seven colours, which is the necromancer's ring, there is some point in time in the game(ring wielded), that the said item lost... is it snatched or something, broken, or is it just a bug to start with... I feel its not worth buying if something happens like that in the future...

wardrake;

 

Glory is a hidden attribute that both helps and hinders your character, but it's mostly positive.

 

The issue with targeting and the Emperor Sphinx will not be handled in Patch 11, nor will any specific changes to Artificing game systems be made.

 

The Duration of Spells is actually correct (there are two non-playable phases at the beginning of each Day, and if the Spell Duration lasts into one of these, it will report the new Day), but we probably will examine the reporting again.

 

As to the Necromancer's Ring, that is an Illegal Item- I am sure it was confiscated when you were Reprimanded. ;)

Any particular use of glory other than prophetic certainty.. :D

 

One of the threads indicated that the requirements in artificing will be change/remove in DLC 2, since patch 11 contains DLC 2, why not?

 

Yeah, when reprimanded the illegal items are removed, including my cheatsheet hahaha...

 

There is a bug I found when the skill maximum is increased, i.e. the manipulation skill maximum is increased by 1, then the problem is, when you are maxing out that skill, the problem unhidden itself at skill level 10(the tooltip says, Skill maximum 11 : SKILL at MAXIMUM), but then when you train it to skill 11(the tooltip says, Skill maximum 11 : 0 of 3)... but in reality, its already maxed out!! reporting problem... weee

 

Another one, its not a bug but brings confusion to the users, the adventure list seems to be a little vague without any indication of what adventure it succeeds from, I hope there will be any indicators provided in order for us to continue an adventure not to start a new one...

 

There is an exploit when shopping in the game, an unidentified item sold to a merchant then bought it ends up the item being identified, no need to use the consult the artifice registry... hehe...

 

Suggestion, I hope in the future, there is someway of changing the color of the ingame frame, by default its brown, right? but I am a nature lover, I want it green or blue... though brown also symbolizes tree trunks.. heheh

Wardrake;

 

You are correct- Prerequisites are removed from Items in DLC 2. That's not quite a bug, though, so I wasn't sure what you meant. :D

 

For the Adventure list, this has been requested by another Academagian, and I believe we will be doing something similar.

 

Thanks for the information on the exploit! That's very interesting. :)

 

I do not believe we will be able to allow the in game frame color to change, but you may be able to modify the base graphic yourself.

Sorry for asking again. Will it today more a morning release or a afternoon/evening release?

(Whant to start a game with the new DLC as soon as posible :D )

The "exploit" was also reported by me some time ago ^^.

Oh I thought the exploit was like a Easter egg cause it logical to sell it to shopkeeper, then they id it to sell it. Of course there is the same buy/sale price that make it exploitable, but I feel it's pretty logical otherwise.

 

Speaking of ID-ing stuff, why can't we Id everything in one go for that umm....ID place where we pay a fee.

Unfortunately, it's a limitation of the engine. We're may change it before Year 2, but for the moment it's 1 per Action. :D

Then how about making the Artifact Registry into a shop with a 10 Pim extra cost buying it back or pay 10 pim before going into shop mode.

 

Edit: Or just make it free like some government/private-cooperation sponsored center.

That's a great idea, but still a limitation of the engine. I love the concept, though. :)

That's where creativity comes in to take care of the limitations. :D

 

Edit: About the shop exploit.

 

Let's say this government use a special economy system where all shop is own by government and merchant are just worker who must sell back the same price they buy by some fair trade law.

 

Then year 2 where the limitation is fixed, the government switch to a new economy system for some reason like Coup de Grace or new king or new standard of the globalize trading system.

Sorry for not clarifying it, that was suppose to be edit 2 on that Turn Artifact Registry Into Shop post and I failed to notice the disconnection.

Or there is a general Law that 1. years of the Acedemagica allways get the best price for sell and buy from the local Vendors and in return this Vendors get some drop in the taxes they have to pay.
