From CLOKwiki
Jump to: navigation, search
  • We hope everyone had a pleasant Octum. Charmseeking and the Octum spirit spawns have been disabled. The Octum Festival will be removed later this weekend. If you have any last minute shopping you'd like to do, make sure to do it soon. -- Jirato 08:06, 1 November 2019 (EDT)
  • All wood hafts or hilts made from this point on will now indicate in the adjective what type of item they have been made for. Example: exquisite pine handaxe haft -- Noctere 19:01, 26 October 2019 (PDT)
  • POLICY 9 has been added to further clarify unacceptable behavior over CHAT, QUESTION, TELL, the CLOK BBS, and the official CLOK Discord. Please note, as stated within the policy, that we unfortunately cannot monitor all of these channels 24/7. If you feel there is a noteworthy issue in an OOC communication channel, please report it by emailing our support address with the details so that it can be looked into. -- Jirato 23:19, 22 October 2019 (EDT)
  • The cooldown timer associated with changing ESP colors will now also apply when changing from a unique color to the generic gray color. -- Jirato 21:16, 14 October 2019 (EDT)
  • Corrected an issue where Gaea distress messages would be sent over the druidry commune channels even if they had not met the minimum distress levels (annoyance) to warrant an announcement due to the number of players logged in lessening its effects. -- Jirato 12:34, 13 October 2019 (EDT)
  • Mining, skinning and foraging now have special 'experimental' commands which can be used to indicate any bag, cart, wagon or container in the area to store your gathered materials. Simply use the AUTOSTASH command after the first word followed the name of the container which can contain at most one adjective. You can also use the new STASHCLEAR command to remove the set container. Examples: MINE AUTOSTASH RED BACKPACK or SKIN AUTOSTASH HANDCART or FORAGE AUTOSTASH PINE WAGON or MINE STASHCLEAR -- Noctere 17:48, 10 October 2019 (PDT)
  • Corrected an issue where mine veins were spawning with outdated data. The previous announcements about vein rarities and yield were not taking effect due to code referencing an outdated portion of the mining module. All vein rarities should now be adjusted as previously announced, and orichalcum and mithril should now have significantly less yield as previously announced. -- Jirato 19:56, 7 October 2019 (EDT)
  • The following hat types may now be tipped/doffed: stetson, fez, top-hat, boater. -- Jirato 11:37, 6 October 2019 (EDT)

  • Urumis and wood hafts had several bugs. They have been squished and any new urumis or wood hafts created will be bug free. -- Noctere 04:23, 24 September 2019 (PDT)
  • Fixed an issue where the /recover command to recover a character's password would fail with an improper error message saying that an invalid email address was entered (when in fact it failed due to a network error). Note that recovery emails now come from clok at clokmud.com instead of gmail. Please be sure to check your spam folder and/or whitelist the clokmud.com domain for email. -- Jirato 19:13, 22 September 2019 (EDT)
  • The Artisan Only Import Shop has managed to obtain a few more rare materials. Get um while supplies last! -- Noctere 18:02, 21 September 2019 (PDT)
  • FIxed a crash to the FORGE command when a masterfully-crafted item would have been made. -- Jirato 12:02, 20 September 2019 (EDT)
  • Along with the previous change, the other munitions will also require a hardenable metal and bolts will require a small carved wood stave. -- Noctere 05:01, 18 September 2019 (PDT)

  • Due to high demand the special ingredient necessary for artisans to craft riversteel has gone up in price. -- Noctere 15:03, 17 September 2019 (PDT)
  • Orichalcum and the other as-of-yet-underscovered ore veins will now produce 1 or 2 chunks of ore rather than the default 5 to 6. This was an oversight. Sorry, enjoy the extra Orichalcum that accidentally slipped through the system. -- Jirato 18:02, 17 September 2019 (EDT)
  • With forging the way that customizable items are recognized has been redone to be more strict so that some items, such as leather gauntlets, will not be treated as metal forged gauntlets. -- Noctere 19:31, 16 September 2019 (PDT)
  • You can now use the ABILITY UNLEARN CANCEL command to stop the process of unlearning any abilities currently being unlearned. This will remove the timer and allow you to use the old ability and unlearn another. -- Noctere 18:38, 14 September 2019 (PDT)
  • Commands which require the 'Apprentice of the Land' ability will now explicitly tell you which ability you are lacking instead of just saying that you don't meet pre-requisites. -- Jirato 23:28, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
  • As a result of the poll at bbs.contrarium.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7159, the daily room saver script has been reverted to a non-threaded call which will save all the rooms at once rather than over time. -- Jirato 21:30, 13 September 2019 (EDT)

  • The commodity price for nails has been reevaluated as it used less material and provided a MUCH higher sell price to markets than any other commodity when they come in batches of 5 for a single crafting cycle. -- Noctere 15:09, 12 September 2019 (PDT)
  • Until a more precise change can me made. Woodworking hafts have been re-enabled for the time being however these hafts can only be used for other woodworking items and will not be functional for forging.-- Noctere 15:03, 12 September 2019 (PDT)
  • Woodworking no longer includes hafts as an option due to numerous exploitative mechanics and the new forging system replacing them. Old hafts should still be usable with the new system but woodworkers are encouraged to supply carved staves for blacksmiths instead. -- Noctere 13:17, 12 September 2019 (PDT)
  • The old VICE command has been removed as it is no longer used. -- Noctere 13:17, 12 September 2019 (PDT)

There is a brawny blacksmith in Shadgard, The blademaster Lilith in Haiban, Nelana the Mine Foreman in Mistral Lake and Haiban has a exclusive teacher just for artisans in a backroom behind the import shop where many new things await them. Just one word, riversteel... -- Noctere 19:44, 11 September 2019 (PDT)
  • The previously removed shield charge (SCHARGE) command is again available through the new Charge ability. Note that this ability may be extended to include charging with heavy weapons in the future, but for now we went ahead and released it as-is in its unfinished state in order to get that long last SCHARGE command back in-game. -- Jirato 21:19, 11 September 2019 (EDT)
  • Two new rare ore types with special properties have been added for skilled miners to discover. -- Jirato 21:08, 11 September 2019 (EDT)

  • Users can now manually disable MXP by typing MXP OFF. They can re-send the MXP initiation handshake by typing MXP ON. If no response is given when typing MXP ON, your client doesn't support MXP. -- Jirato 10:30, 20 January 2019 (EST)

  • The ClokGear plugin will now automatically be downloaded, installed, and loaded when connecting to the MUD via Mudlet. -- Jirato 22:22, 18 January 2019 (EST)
  • Changed the way data is sent to and from the MUD server in order to allow future implementation of telnet sub-negotiations such as GMCP and MXP. As a result, there were a couple minor bugs (command stacking no longer working, extra line breaks after every command), but all of them should now be resolved. If you experience any further oddities, please use the BUG command. -- Jirato 21:48, 18 January 2019 (EST)
  • You can now see how damaged a weapon or shield is when you look at someone holding one, when you check your inventory, or when attacking with that weapon or shield. -- Noctere 00:14, 14 January 2019 (PST)
  • Fixed a bug with casting the spell, Minor Taming, by its spell ID (710). It was incorrectly identified as 704 in the code. Please ensure you use 710 when casting from here on. -- Jirato 21:42, 14 January 2019 (EST)
  • The REQUEST command has been re-worked and is now open for players to use in situations when they need to initiate OOC contact with a member of the GM team.

  • Fixed a bug where players departing while their corpse is in the "valeria" realm in an area with no explicit depart location would lose their corpse and not get revived. -- Jirato 17:27, 10 January 2019 (EST)
  • A new nesting site has been uncovered deep in the wilds. What creatures dwell deep within? -- Mirazia 02:14, 7 January 2019 (EST)
