Explaining Footfall post Release 211


#262

Footfall balance has been changed in the recent update.

@Arkhainn GOTO 10.

(That’s a BASIC joke.)


#263

My Parents bought me a C64 and a ton of games when I was a kid. The games never got played but the manual taught me BASIC. Programming that thing was all I wanted to do. I was only 10 years old. I wasn’t a normal child! :rofl:


#264

I remember programing a poker game in BASIC when I had a 286 computer.
What a terrible language. :stuck_out_tongue:

… tho less annoying than fortran.

That sounds perfectly normal to me. :stuck_out_tongue:


#265

Thanks for the update.

Also if anyone’s feeling nostalgic you can still program TI BASIC in some of their calculators.

SO EXCITING to bounce a pixel around heh.


#266

Same here, though without the games…think they wanted me to spend my time learning, which I did, sort of (mostly from typing in games from the backs of computer mags :slight_smile: ).

see what you did , james. getting all us oldies nostalgic…


#267

Learned to program on my Atari 600XL, Atari BASIC… Ahh, good times…


#268

Same here. I learnt to program on a zx81, which I built with my dad at the age of 9 or 10. Then c16, vic20, c64, amiga500 and so on.
I too learnt to program by entering code from magazines, and deconstructing it to figure out how it all worked.
It’s all I wanted to do and my parents didn’t have a clue what I was up to.

Happy days.


#269

For me real programming came into play when I got into the MUD scene and started learning C/C++ by way of Altavista (I think this was mostly before google became a thing). But that was still pretty recently by c64 standards. :stuck_out_tongue:


#270

I remember doing this with the Commodore 64!


#271

I remember entering codes like peek and poke, followed by numbers, which changed the screen colour settings. Or when you could hack a game, adjust a few numbers in the machine code to get unlimited lives etc.


#272

Me too. I got a programming for dummies book and made text base dungeon crawlers on my C64


#273

All I have to say is:

10 PRINT CHR$ (205.5 + RND (1)); : GOTO 10


#274

Pokes were funny… I made a fake loader for a game a friend wanted… count down and everything… looked totally like it was a premium speccy game booting up :wink: trollllllll


#275

Footfall has suddenly dropped again for me over the last two days. It was almost getting back to the level it was pre-patch and now it’s back down to about 50% again.


#276

Today my test char has primary guild G1, no permissions. And is a member of G2, no permissions. The test char walks onto a beacon aligned to G2. Again, no footfall is generated.

Guilds are completely useless because they prevent footfall.

Lets assume you run a mall and assign the main beacon to a guild. Now, many people who have a shop in that mall are a member of that guild. You most like will get puny footfall. @majorvex, did you try to not align the streets in the gyosha mall to a guild?


#277

did you test what happens when they first enter a non-guild beacon, before stepping into the guild-aligned ones?


#278
  • Created new character X
  • X Joined guild Test, no permissions
  • X walks onto beacon BY1 of char Y, beacon is not aligned with any guild. X has no permission on BY1.
  • X walks onto beacon BY2 of char Y, beacon is aligned with guild Test.
  • BY1 and BY2 both had 0 footfall.

#279

That sounds super weird. Can any devs confirm that this is intended behavior? @james ?


#280

I am assuming both beacons have greater than 10k prestige? and the character checking is the owner of the beacon, not an alt with permissions?


#281

Yes, and both are in the same settlement.

Yes.
