Change animal spawn mechanic - hunting without DISCORD BOT

Postby noindyfikator » Thu Nov 30, 2023 7:40 am

How hunting works right now:

1. Open Discord
2. Wait for ping
3. Go kill animal
4. Log out

Repeat

-----
Change the way how animals spawn from retarded to less retarded. Thanks

Yeah make it a /spawn command so we don't have to open discord or wait.

Or do you see another alternative maybe?

yes, just take a look on any other mmo. Pick first one from google list and you have solution. Not that difficult

Wouldn't be bad if you could just go in one place to hunt 20 bears and do normal life stuff instead having your whole day ruined by thinking about haven all time. Idk add monster spawners that spawn animals similar to how spawners in dungeons work - but radius should be much wider, also they could have their own quality so if they decay and new monster spawners appear then we have something like "moving nodes".

Plus of this is that we have something like "hunting grounds" which would be much more attracting than localized resources.

Bob Dole doesn't necessarily see anything wrong with a discord bot pinger.

Discord bot pinging for hql spots is cringe but it's probably the easiest way to feed your industry (You can do it without them), since it eats all the hql bones/meat you can give it and more (and most animals are literal garbage ql).
And it's fine in the first weeks when getting a 100-150 ql animal is good enough for your industry, but needing dozens of 300ql animals becomes a chore very quickly.

Something should be done not to prevent spot checker bots from working but to make it so you don't feel like you need them. Maybe make industry require less bones, or make it so 99% of animals aren't literal garbage that should be discarded.
Stuff like bear/moose dungeons that would allow you to reliably get a lot of hql bones would be very nice. Or maybe some kind of events like "hunting season for X animal" that makes all these animals spawn much more often and at higher quality (although that doesn't fix the issue long-term since you will only want the highest quality anyways at some point).

Why do animal quality nodes have to be static in the first place? Just make them either move or make them random and make hunting fun again as it's worth killing everything at a chance of high quality.

Just did it, so your suggestion is world of warcraft now. We would have small zones with a bunch of animals of little variety and they repop very often. That sounds like a bad idea to me.

How would we do this without fundamentally destroying or redesigning the game?
Animal nodes move, and are local pooled. :oops:

Frankly almost every node should move except water, I guess, as wells have become community building affairs, which seem to help the game.
