It may not be fire that's causing the jungle 0 - some people like to clear their way through. As an experiment, I've lowered the frequency with which fire spreads while keeping the rate at which it burns people stood in it. I'll check back in a few days to see how it's going.

Nothing in the pipeline yet except a non-Shartak but related project which is nowhere near being ready for playing with. It's also a bit early to be thinking about April Fools 2018. If you use Discord already, join the Shartak Discord server to get announcements etc

Several options here, locating characters on the map is easy enough but the background...

1. include a consolidated view of the map as well including visited locations from all your characters (or perhaps just active ones)
2. merely indicate the locations of your other characters using the map from your currently active character
3. include a basic outline of the island but nothing else
4. use a completed map but only show the 8 squares around each character so as not to give too much away

The active Shaman count at the top of the stats page is only 16 total so at worst you're 1 of 12 active level 43 shaman

After a quick peek in the database, I can say that you are actually 1 of 6 active level 43 shaman, together with nine, gridflay, lacuna, zevna and Etherdrifter. There's only 30 active players who are level 40 or higher across all classes.

That's interesting. Do you mean players or characters?

Good point, in this instance I meant characters. I try to use accounts (overall site login) vs characters usually but occasionally forget because a lot of the older code refers to players/characters/users as the same thing. Of course, accounts didn't exist in Shartak v1. If/when I get around to reworking a lot of the code, I will be attempting to standardise on accounts vs characters and do away with references to users or players.

Failing to move away from it isn't a certainty. Sometimes if you get lucky, you can wriggle free of its grasp by simply trying to move repeatedly.
Can't promise it'll still be there, but try around [-70.237,+26.414]

Split it into it's own topic Also, the ghost ship does move around - or did last time I checked. The code to do that was a nightmare so if I can avoid making another one move around, that would be good

There were 59 different characters who managed to find/kill Easter Bunnies this year! What's even more amazing is that some people killed more than 1 in the 10 days that they were around.

As requested on the Discord server, there are some stats for me to generate.

I'm feeling a little lazy so no pretty tables on this one, and since there were so many killers involved I've skipped anyone who got 1 or 2 kills. By grouping all of the kills by account rather than character, one account in particular had 30 kills more than the next one in the list with an massive 37 bunnies who died by their hands!

Code:
| Killer Id | Name                         | Kills
|     23829 | Noreen                       | 3 |
|     25129 | Wendy Torrance               | 3 |
|     23491 | Lady of Spain                | 3 |
|     23881 | Nergal                       | 3 |
|     15933 | Vieux                        | 3 |
|     22270 | Tischalla                    | 3 |
|      2391 | schwerve                     | 3 |
|     24596 | Asfaha                       | 4 |
|     21551 | mouse                        | 4 |
|     22332 | Khal Athrokhar               | 4 |
|     22723 | Rifiel                       | 5 |
|     23790 | Malaki                       | 5 |
|     23789 | Andramelech                  | 6 |
|      2107 | andu                         | 6 |
|     22618 | Snow                         | 6 |
|     13621 | Tioram                       | 6 |
|     23830 | Khadijah                     | 7 |

Badges for this event have finally been added. Sorry it took so long.

Yeah, you spotted they were randomly generated

Pretty much like the pony names from 5 years ago, but a lot less to choose from so there are duplicates, sometimes even in a single account! Any character whose profile is accessed, or was seen in-game or on the account view, will get a smurf name.

Well that's inconsiderate of Santa. He was supposed to pack up and leave back at the beginning of January!

A map "square" is a 5x5 area of the map but they have a boundary such that you can move between 4 tiles and cover 4 different squares. There was some discussion a few years ago about it including the most optimal way to explore. Can't remember if the tunnels count.

I've used Slack before now with a couple of groups - the client for Discord is a bit better because you can change your nickname per server and see messages from all of them at once. About a year ago when I last used Slack, you had to swap between servers and couldn't share a single account which meant that you'd miss messages/notifications if your client wasn't logged into the right server.

Viewing offline history depends on the permissions set, but yes, usually this is the case.

I've setup a basic server at https://discord.gg/Nb25Nth - will look at sorting permissions, roles etc in a bit.

If you wanted realtime, we could just use a discord server - that's much more for gaming (and still free). Slack seems more business oriented.

https://discordapp.com/ - can use it through the website or download a client.

79 mummies left in the second wave. Still plenty of time to catch up with (and overtake) mouse who is in the lead in number of kills.
