Yeah, it displays the uncapped value for the reason Harry and Satan are supporting. It's just so you know if you're shooting past it.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but can we get comically oversized keys as free pulls? The only purpose they serve is assembly with gold foil for making keys to the city for prestige. Although I just noticed this has an autosell value of 500. Why is that? That seems like a large waste >.> Can we remove the autosell and make it free pull?

Removed autosell and recycling ability and made it a free pull.

Can we make it so that setting something for decryption automatically makes it start decrypting if you're running a computer with only 1 slot? Atleast twice now I've accidentally started adventuring for level 5 quest because I forget that it doesn't start running. Also, the notice could stand out a bit more.

EDIT: Or maybe just not have that section show up until you set decryption to run?

I second this request! I had the same thing happen in my current run, and wasted several hours because I didn't notice the unencryption wasn't running.

Okay, the decryption dropdown now only appears if the decryptinomicon is running.

Can we have companions show up on character pages, along with sidekicks? Could help us know if we should buff someone with a companion skill/item.

I'd rather not. By the same logic, I'd also need to include what buffs each player has on, which I'd rather avoid.

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure it just always gives the items (and has for a while). So whether they have a companion is largely moot.

That being said, I'd kinda like it if we could see the companion. Could maybe get some fun/silly combinations.

And, using the slippery slope arguments, you're already showing the sidekick, might as well show the companion?

Alright, I deny your slippery slope argument, but I'll accept "because it's funny." If nothing else because I chuckled at "Bob and your kangaroo" so often during testing.

It should now display with the sidekick if the target has one active or on its own line if they don't.

You can take my slippery slope arguments, but you cannot take my freedom!

Hoyifung (no forum acct) is wondering if it would be possible to get a non-donation talisman with access to the Abandoned Chemistry Lab, or is that going to remain restricted to donation items?

The plan was originally for those to be solely for that round of donation items. But it wouldn't be the worst thing to have it be accessible otherwise. If a really cool idea for that hits me, I'll probably sneak it in.

Would it be easy to implement a 'search by recently listed' option in the Player Mall?

I'm not sure how much use it would have, but it would be sure interesting to see what people are selling :)

It should be possible to show the most recently updated items.

I like how uncluttered the mall interface is, but it would be neat. I'll give it some thought.

In my haste to participate in the heirloom derby, I retconned without looking at the current contest items. I find myself at turn 1 with no way to see what the derby item is, without logging into a different account. Is there some way this information can be added to Deep Storage for heirloom runs, or somewhere else accessible without transportation like the Game Manual?

Good call. There should now be a link from Deep Storage while you're choosing your heirloom.

Can we get timestamps in chat? It often moves very slowly, and I often open the tab and do other things, and then I get back and see maybe one line posted in the past few hours, and don't know how out of date it is.

Good call. The server time the message was posted should now appear if you mouseover the speaker's name in the message.

Right now, the Auction House has a link to go back to the main map.
Could we also get a link to to back to Downtown?

It's also linked from the Wok of Stars (and is accessible without being able to go downtown), so linking it back to downtown is a little weird in this case.

Can we see rankings in the International House of Records (full), similar to the Top Donators for the Space Station Construction (full)?

There's a link in the records page to see the full listing.

But do you mean you want the leading numbers so you can see placement?

Hmmm. I've added them, but I'm not a huge fan of how they look. If anyone has problems with them, I'll probably take them back down.

I don't think I didn't (and can't believe I didn't yet) ask for consumption info somewhere (character page probably). Often I don't remember how much sugar/coffee I had today already. (I usually remember that I had zero vegetables).

I'm also kind of surprised it wasn't in there. Added it to the character page and reformatted things some.

Vegetables: 149/181


I haven't had a vegetable in a long time, so ... I think I need vegetable limit explained to me. Is it per retcon?

I really like image-light inventory. My inventory loads so much faster now! (I'm such a pack-rat)
However, I do not like the way image-light combat looks.
Would it be possible to separate that into two different options?

I noticed that the Last Area Patrolled link now works on log-in for Shiloh (zone). Can other areas be updated so the LAP link also works on log-in?

Sort of. I can completely recode zones so they work the new way. And I will be doing that as it comes up; you can probably find some others that work that way already.

But fixing it for the entire game would be weeks of really tedious work, so it isn't going to happen all at once.
