A few in game questions

Free;

 

"It's probably an artefact of a long-abolished idea"

 

This is the correct answer. :)

 

Schwarzbart;

 

Very few Community Adventures are receiving follow ups in 1.0, although that has more to do with allowing the community authors to create the follow ups as much as possible.

 

There are some exceptions, though...;)

In addition to what the Legate said I imagine that after being handed several dozen .txt and .html files worth of adventures and events the team is really, really hoping that the community waits until the fixed Y2 mod tools are released before sending in follow-up adventures and events. As .y2m or whatever files.

Yes I see the follow ups for Mikka's Student adventures and Freespace's familiar are important to have in V1.0 of Y2, while the rest can wait for later.

I'm working on it as fast as I reasonably can. However, the team seems to be treating the material for writing as if they were located at Bletchley Park in WWII. It makes coming up with stuff somewhat... challenging.

Good thing I'm not with the people who need to write a continue for v1.0 already :) So I can continue pester Legate with new year 1 ideas ;)

Is it possible for a ability in year to have something like this:

 

Its only Visible if Flag 0 is set

If called remove 10 pims and do:

If Flag 2 = False and Flag 1 = True then set Flag 2

If Flag 1 = False Then set Flag 1

If Flag 2 = True then expand Random Economic Max; Remove Flag 1 & Flag 2

 

also would it expand the Random Economic on the second call or the 3th? Or should I do it with 3 different ability?

@Metis giving the expand in a Random Economic Maximum every 3 (maybe 4) calls of the Ability. So yes its better then Weaselword + Favor but its more limited in the result and it also cost extra money in study material each visit. (Beside you need to have paid the tuition and need to have Arithmetics => 8)

It's certainly possible, but unless you can hide abilities (not sure if Y1 can, Y2 might) it's a really ugly way to do it.

Unanswered Question:

Is it possible for a ability in year 1 to have something like this:

 

Its only Visible if Flag 0 is set

If called remove 10 pims and do:

If Flag 2 = False and Flag 1 = True then set Flag 2

If Flag 1 = False Then set Flag 1

If Flag 2 = True then expand Random Economic Max; Remove Flag 1 & Flag 2

 

also would it expand the Random Economic on the second call or the 3th? Or should I do it with 3 different ability?

Related to this I wonder if the memory can store other values then 1 and 0? I just found out that Student Adventure Katja Quinnecht 07a & b set a memory to 2!

Actually, I'm pretty sure the way the game's coded that means it sets the "PC has memory" flag twice. Which, if true, will do absolutely nothing.

Can familiars whom are capable of doing so cast spells by drawing phemes? or only through their bond. Say if you had a monkey and enchanted it's fingers for casting, would it work?

Yes, unfortunately we cannot set it to False in Y1. :(

Huh I 'm sure you told me this was changed when you implemented my Negation Wand Crafting Adventure.

1. Is y2 going to support having 2 Familiars or is that... Later?

2. Is there a warship famous for being very large/powerful?

3. Can we get a background where the family is infamous for having a wizard or two in it that were caught defying the bans on the proscribed arts? Long ago of course...

4. Are there any islands that have holes in them large enough to see Cyve underneath?

5. I actually have an idea for a Y2 transfer student. Not concrete yet, but If I start writing something after Pebbles... all of these following questions are related to that concept.

A. Does Elumia have any traditions on name changing, (particularly name shortening) say to try to cut with their past?
B. And how good would you have to be in Revision to have a single well-practiced form changing revision spell last for a duration of at least a week? (nothing too outlandish, the person would still be human)
C. Regarding the Chameil School, I want to gauge how good with Revision a graduate may be. I assume if the player went there, it was not for long?

D. What are the Academagia's rules on Name Registration? I assume the Legal name of a student would be used particularly if it were a powerful family name. (Even if the kid hated it, and chose not to namedrop said name at all outside very formal situations)

Hmm.. I'm sure is kind of pathetic that if that was answered I can't remember it. So much time must have past... :(

2. Isn't there that one ship during the Vernin gold rune thing adventure, or did that get crash-landed into pieces in the end? I don't remember.

 

3.Family: The Secret Heritage and Prodigy: Secrets and Silence both concern the forbidden pillars. Neither mentioned the PC's family being caught, however. Maybe History: Descended of Traitors? Like, they "betrayed" the ban and did Evil stuff with it?

 

5a. With names ranging from Antonio de Reyez e Irizarry-Vargas to Sima Venesico, how could we even tell?

5c. Gameplay mechanic wise it's easily possible for the school to be a better teacher than Lisle Aventyrare, if only because they don't have to deal with five other classes. Story-wise, seeing as how the Academagia is supposed to be this awesome school for awesome people, I'd say Chameil's education is markedly second to the Academagia's. How well a graduate would be, though? No clue. And it's more than likely the PC didn't attend for long - Revision is keyed to Intelligence, so there's little point in teaching Revision to a four-year-old. Besides which, do you really want a four-year-old walking around casting spell, poorly?

5d. I highly doubt a student could use anything but their actual name, no matter how much they hated it.

 

Questions of my own:

6. Does Y2 allow for items to cost more than 999 Pims?

7. What would a wand with +1 Finesse, +1 Patrol and all it's subskill, Movement Affinity cost? I assume it'd be more than 1K Pims, but the game is rather inconsistent about what something costs.

C) I remember an old question asking on the level of the background school in regard of the Academagia and for what I remember they have a good level altough having to focus on one subject for more than five years compensate a bit the huge ressources of the Academagia wich i believe is a greater bonus than the quality of the professors (tough it doesn't hurt :P ). Maybe top Academagia students will be ahead but i think that for the rest it will be roughly the same level a bit like in real life.

 

The big thing about the Academagia is the huge amount of study available without wich our friend free would be very sad :P .

 

And because of that i totaly believe that even if the school doesn't necessarily make you a better specialist it totally makes you a better mage.

6) Yes the 999 Pims limt will be no more when I remember right. Also we no longer get the same price for sell and buy. Some shops should even have a different price then other shops especial when you spend your summer holiday outside of Mineta.

7) There will be most likely a rework on the prices for year 2 because crafting should become a more interesting game feature.
