Most of you know me, and for those that don't I will not ruin the surprise. I am writing to you in conjunction with Tissa and MadK@. We are collectively reaching out to you all to inform and so that we may be informed. Have you all had a chance to familiarize yourself with a little system called Companion Training System?
Presently, version 188.8.131.52 is about to roll out to all the servers on Avlis. This latest update contains only one small change to the existing script, but it a milestone on further developments.
Feedback dialog for non-existent bonding type changed. Should now read;
Code: Select all
"The knowledge to tame such a creature is not yet available in this world." + " Yet you sense a connection between you and this creature and you feel " + IntToString(iAppearType) + " is some how a key." );
This information is being fed out IC as part of a drive to get players to begin their own research into animals that they would like to see added to the functionality of the system. Armed with this information, players will be directed to an entirely new Wiki, completely dedicated to the research of animals for CTS incorporation.
Without going into too much detail on that wiki, suffice to say it will be an information dump, where each account holder will accrue information on animals in their own, private pages. That information will then be skimmed over and a more general image of the creature from multiple sources will be compiled and placed in a publicly accessible area for review. Of utmost importance to the administrators will be seeing that all FOIG information stays FOIG – yet provide a collaborative environment for people to contribute to the information available about these creatures.
Where to from there? Well, naturally, CTS 2.0.
In the new version, we hope to not only add more creatures to choose from, but also more tricks, commands, revise old interfaces and methods, etc.
That's where we need your help! We're looking for ideas, feedback and most of all, those interested in helping this come to fruition. If you have any comments on changing the bonding interface, new tricks, interactions with spells, etc.
We want to hear them.
