[02:31:34] <SB-X> hey yu
[02:31:36] <SB-X> v
[02:31:37] <SB-X> yuv*
[02:31:42] <Yuv422> hey
[02:32:05] <Yuv422> how's things?
[02:32:20] <SB-X> fine
[02:32:36] <SB-X> did you see what i said about birds? in u6 they'll stop moving
[02:32:48] <SB-X> i didnt even notice until the other day that they had a sit frame
[02:33:23] <Yuv422> yeah they settle down on the ground
[02:33:48] <SB-X> yeah thats what i mean, a few days ago and again yesterday or the day before i noticed it
[02:34:07] <SB-X> how is that handled you think?
[02:36:05] <Yuv422> I'm not sure
[02:36:25] <Yuv422> maybe it is just random
[02:37:23] <SB-X> unlike in nuvie, they only dont use that frame when flying
[02:37:29] <SB-X> they only use it when resting
[02:38:03] <Yuv422> but how would you know they havent taken off anyway?
[02:38:14] <SB-X> what?
[02:38:39] <Yuv422> because they go straight from sitting to flying tiles
[02:38:40] <SB-X> -only
[02:39:25] <SB-X> what?
[02:39:37] <SB-X> yeah they do it right away
[02:39:52] <SB-X> when you get near them
[02:40:08] <SB-X> it looks like it's timed when they go back to sitting
[02:42:05] <Yuv422> yeah
[02:42:09] <Yuv422> I see what you mean
[02:42:32] <Yuv422> yet another special actor movement type
[02:42:41] <SB-X> :)
[02:42:42] <SB-X> what others are there?
[02:42:50] <Yuv422> slime
[02:42:55] <Yuv422> tangle vine
[02:43:14] <Yuv422> then all the other types
[02:43:17] <Yuv422> 2x2
[02:43:19] <Yuv422> 4x4
[02:43:25] <Yuv422> mice
[02:43:32] <Yuv422> humans
[02:44:40] <SB-X> tangle vine is just a worktype, so i dont know if it requires any special animation
[02:44:41] <Yuv422> it shouldn't be to hard to handle birds
[02:44:55] <Yuv422> I guess it doesn't
[02:44:56] <SB-X> good
[02:45:09] <Yuv422> slime too then
[02:45:16] <SB-X> i think the whole vine is supposed to disappear when you kill the center
[02:45:27] <SB-X> that will need special handling
[02:45:33] <SB-X> at leasst that's what U6O does
[02:46:00] <Yuv422> well all the vine objs would be linked to the actor anyway
[02:46:08] <Yuv422> so that shouldn't be too hard
[02:46:29] <SB-X> but then we do need to make sure they dont move
[02:46:49] <SB-X> except the ends
[02:46:55] <Yuv422> why?
[02:47:00] <SB-X> the vine doesnt move
[02:47:05] <SB-X> it just grows
[02:47:26] <Yuv422> yes
[02:47:45] <SB-X> i really dont know how object linking works :)
[02:47:48] <Yuv422> it would just be a custom move surrounding tiles method
[02:47:55] <Yuv422> which didn't move any tiles
[02:47:55] <SB-X> ah k
[02:48:47] <SB-X> as long as any actor can do it
[02:48:56] <SB-X> act like a tangle vine
[02:49:00] <SB-X> :)
[02:49:04] <Yuv422> hehe
[02:53:03] <SB-X> while I have your attention, do you know how to get into the locked room in the weapons shop at trinsic?
[02:53:12] <SB-X> i forgot
[02:53:44] <Yuv422> hmm let me check
[02:57:32] <Yuv422> do you have coords. I'm a little far away
[02:57:43] <SB-X> 19b 2e2 0
[02:58:04] <Yuv422> thanks
[02:58:10] <SB-X> np
[03:15:38] <SB-X> I just read in a guide that Seggallion is from Origin's Knights of Legend.
[03:15:59] <Yuv422> ah k
[03:20:08] <Yuv422> 1a5 30a 0
[03:21:09] <Yuv422> not very well hidden if you ask me. :)
[03:21:38] <SB-X> argh, thanks
[03:21:43] <SB-X> that's his house? i shouldve checked there
[03:22:12] <Yuv422> imagine the mechanics behind that lever
[03:22:13] <SB-X> the shop owner's house
[03:22:17] <SB-X> hehe
[03:22:25] <SB-X> it's magic
[03:22:30] <Yuv422> of course
[03:22:36] <Yuv422> wifi
[03:22:38] <SB-X> or infrared
[03:22:40] <SB-X> heh
[03:22:59] <SB-X> in nuvie you can set hackmover on and grab the lever into your inventory
[03:23:03] <SB-X> then you can still use it
[03:23:07] <SB-X> like a remote control
[03:23:11] --- smatthews_ is now known as servus
[03:23:41] <Yuv422> I guess either of those technologies would be considered magic in those days. :)
[03:24:02] <SB-X> the dog attacks
[03:24:22] <Yuv422> I guess it is a guard dog. :)
[03:30:42] <Yuv422> I'm going out for a bit
[03:31:01] <Yuv422> bbl
