[00:07:40] <petermdodge> teehee
[00:32:56] <-- Marzo has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[00:37:27] --> Marzo has joined #tfl
[00:37:27] --- ChanServ gives voice to Marzo
[00:37:42] <Marzo> Katrina's hair is done. Her neck, however, remains the same
[00:37:56] <Marzo> (and is proving difficult to fix)
[00:41:21] <petermdodge> heh
[01:09:55] <Marzo> Mariah's neck and hair proved much easier to fix
[01:10:01] <petermdodge> :-)
[01:10:03] <petermdodge> COMMIT
[01:10:10] <petermdodge> ... or at least show us :-)
[01:10:29] <Marzo> Still a few touches to go, sorry
[01:19:25] <petermdodge> heh
[01:19:58] <Marzo> http://seventowers.u7feudallands.com/images/newfaces.png
[01:20:10] <Marzo> old at top, new at bottom
[01:20:38] <Marzo> (ignore the unicorn, he is just riding along :-p)
[01:21:25] <Marzo> The lower-right portion of Jaana's hair can probably be darkened a little, though
[01:21:38] <petermdodge> Better
[01:21:43] <petermdodge> Janna has a head now
[01:21:50] <Marzo> lol
[01:22:21] <Marzo> I forgot Mariah's lips
[01:22:57] <Crysta> mariah still looks old tho
[01:23:05] <petermdodge> heh yep
[01:23:31] <Marzo> That is probably because the model is a little older than the others (which gets magnified by the increased contrast)
[01:23:52] <petermdodge> indeed
[01:26:02] <Marzo> (I *could* go the lazy way and say that she looks older because she has many more worries than the others... but I don't think anyone would buy that... :-p)
[01:27:41] <petermdodge> Lol
[01:57:36] <Marzo> Ack, I think I'll get another model for Mariah
[01:57:50] <Crysta> lol
[01:58:15] <Marzo> I mean, I did manage to de-age her by softening her features, but now she lacks detail
[01:58:50] <Marzo> Plus she kinda looks like Britney Spears...
[01:58:51] <Crysta> ouch
[01:58:53] <Crysta> XD
[01:59:27] <Marzo> Well, do you guys have any more comments on Jaana?
[01:59:52] <Marzo> (and I think I'll cut off someone else's neck to use with Katrina)
[02:00:57] <Crysta> im afraid i think ive hid the end of being able to critique stuff for the night
[02:00:57] <Crysta> lol
[02:01:13] <Crysta> im slowly slipping into tired incoherency
[02:01:21] <Marzo> lol
[02:04:02] <petermdodge> lol
[02:29:30] <servus> Hi Crysta!
[02:29:39] <Crysta> hi servus
[02:29:42] <servus> All I have to say to that is, http://sammatthews.com/files/ugh-uo.png !
[02:29:56] <servus> And.. a POWER SCROLL for a reward. a POWER SCROOOOLL! *Moans and hisses*
[02:30:05] <Crysta> XD
[02:30:13] <Crysta> thats why i havent done any in a long time
[02:30:21] <Crysta> right now im on test.. testing stuff
[02:30:35] <servus> I miss the halloween shards, where you could polymorph into, say, a Balrog with full Balrog stats
[02:31:01] <servus> balron*
[02:31:06] <Crysta> more massive monster spawns coming
[02:31:16] <Crysta> nothign too interesting
[02:31:40] <servus> Yeah. I wish they'd ramp up interest for Felucca and/or Siege Perilos
[02:31:55] <servus> I never even worry about getting murdered in Felucca anymore. Where's the fun in that?
[02:32:11] <Crysta> apparently they give "accelerated skillgain "scrolls
[02:32:49] <Crysta> the new massive monster spawns that will be part of the event cycle this week later once the dark wisps are gone
[02:32:50] <Crysta> er
[02:32:53] <Crysta> the newer dark wisps
[02:32:57] <Crysta> not the normal siege ones
[02:33:38] <servus> The dark wisps give pretty ridiculous loot for being killable in two flamestrikes
[02:33:47] <Crysta> agreed
[02:33:48] <servus> Including full paragon chests
[02:34:01] <Crysta> the paragon ones are a pain in ilsh tho
[02:34:02] <servus> Try going to Lycaeuim near server down though... less people... MUCH, much harder to stay alive.
[02:34:06] <servus> Yeah!
[02:34:11] <servus> I've soloed paragon lich lords.
[02:34:15] <Crysta> no i meant
[02:34:20] <Crysta> para gon dark wisps
[02:34:20] <servus> They don't walk - they permateleport o.o
[02:34:36] <servus> They give paragon loot in the Lycaeum but don't seem stronger than normal ones
[02:34:45] <Crysta> i know
[02:34:47] <Crysta> im saying
[02:34:49] <Crysta> in ilsh
[02:34:51] <Crysta> there are
[02:34:53] <Crysta> some spawns
[02:35:02] <Crysta> they're in the wisp dungeon starting on the second floor
[02:35:06] <Crysta> paragon ones will spawn there
[02:35:46] <servus> I've fought real paragons in Ilsh... way too hard
[02:36:11] <servus> That's how it is.. No good challenges.
[02:36:14] <Crysta> ive helped out in fights against a few
[02:36:24] <Crysta> ancient wyrm ones are fun with a group
[02:36:27] <servus> They can be barded, so they're not a real threat to me o.o
[02:36:34] <servus> I've killed ancient wyrm paragons! Hooray!
[02:36:48] <Crysta> i need to kill a paragon balron sometime
[02:36:53] <servus> Those are easy :p
[02:37:00] <servus> Balrons are easy now
[02:37:05] <Crysta> not for me
[02:37:13] <Crysta> i can barely kill daemons
[02:37:13] <Crysta> lol
[02:37:17] <servus> We had IGMs play balrons on our server a long, long time ago
[02:37:38] <servus> That was a lot of fun. ~Dozens~ of people showed up to Hythloth 3 for the fight and they all died. Repeatedly.
[02:37:58] <servus> You should play Atlantic! *noddles*
[02:38:52] <Crysta> sorry
[02:38:55] <Crysta> my home is LS
[02:39:09] <Crysta> besides, i have a luna house now
[02:39:20] <Crysta> i dont think i could give that up to move
[02:40:08] <servus> I meant, just for fun, not permanently!
[02:40:23] <Crysta> i like having a house where i play
[02:40:30] <Crysta> which is why ive not left LS
[02:40:37] <Crysta> im too much of a packrat to not have one :p
[02:40:46] <servus> Hee. I've got a mansion lately, and I dunno what to do with it.
[02:48:20] <Crysta> lol
[02:49:10] <Crysta> LOL
[02:49:14] <Crysta> the new patch
[02:49:19] <servus> Hmm?
[02:49:24] <Crysta> it made Heartwood vanish
[02:49:28] * servus gets on test
[02:49:31] <servus> What do you mean?
[02:49:44] <Crysta> i mean when you go throughth e gate
[02:49:54] <Crysta> its soild black with some frozen NPCs
[02:50:00] <Crysta> and the gate behind you
[02:50:02] <Crysta> nothing
[02:50:03] <servus> Oh I thought you meant bloodwood
[02:50:04] <Crysta> totally gone
[02:50:07] <Crysta> oh no
[02:50:10] <Crysta> i mean the city
[02:50:18] <servus> Error applying patch
[02:50:29] <Crysta> ouch
[02:51:43] <Crysta> if only this were permanent
[02:51:48] <Crysta> heartwood is such an ugly area
[02:52:35] <servus> Hee! But it's the only place to get runic fletching or carpentry tools
[02:52:39] <servus> I wish they'd put in real BoDs for those
[02:52:51] <Crysta> i wish theyd remove bods and runics entirely
[02:53:06] <Crysta> its their fault we have AoS
[02:53:07] <servus> Why? It's the only way to get player-craftable equipment on par with drops
[02:53:15] <Crysta> well
[02:53:22] <Crysta> their fault and some idiot devs
[02:54:28] <servus> I squarely place Trammel as the point where UO jumped the shark
[02:54:38] <Crysta> od dont you remember the whole blessed val hammer faction weapons debacle that got people complaining about the combat system?
[02:54:41] <Crysta> *or
[02:55:12] <servus> Mouse over your character... lots of weird stats... I wonder if those are permanent...
[02:55:19] <servus> Nope I don't
[02:55:26] <servus> Permanent val smith hammers?
[02:55:27] <Crysta> lol
[02:55:29] <Crysta> no
[02:55:39] <Crysta> blessed faction weapons made by the hammers
[02:55:45] <Crysta> they were more powerful back then
[02:55:58] <servus> Oh
[02:56:01] <Crysta> think of it this way
[02:56:02] <servus> I never really used weapons
[02:56:11] <servus> I remember 1-hit HXBows from 1997-1999
[02:56:15] <Crysta> a bunch of pre-AoS factioneers running around with blessed vanqs
[02:56:38] <servus> WHat's the difference, with "Insurance"?
[02:56:49] <Crysta> this was before insurance
[02:57:03] <Crysta> insurance was another gift from AoS
[02:57:23] <Crysta> the only alternative back then was item bless deeds
[02:57:33] <Crysta> and sadly enough they were rarer then than they are now
[02:57:38] <servus> Every step closer toward make the game rubber foam-coated is a step toward disaster
[02:57:50] <Crysta> yup
[02:58:16] <Crysta> why do you think ive been telling them they need to remove the AoS combat system changes and insurance since day 1 of AoS?
[02:58:20] <servus> Notice how many people still have "Guards" in their bank macros? Like, none.
[02:58:40] <servus> Not just insurance, but the whole Trammel no-PKing, no-stealing thing...
[02:58:53] <Crysta> well id LIKE to go for that too
[02:58:59] <Crysta> but a lot less would agree
[02:59:01] <servus> Siege Perilous
[02:59:04] <Crysta> i figure one step at a time
[02:59:04] <Crysta> lol
[02:59:27] <Crysta> and siege does still have the AoS changes i mentioned too :P
[02:59:32] <Crysta> so it could only help
[02:59:56] <Crysta> that damned system
[03:00:20] <Crysta> they added like 30 properties that were game breaking with even 1% of an increase with up to 60-80%
[03:00:46] <Crysta> and they never fixed a single one
[03:00:56] <Crysta> of course
[03:01:07] <Crysta> fixing would mean removing them because they arent fixable
[03:02:16] <Crysta> oook im gonna stop ranting now
[03:02:17] <Crysta> lol
[03:02:36] <Marzo> See the new neck for Katrina: http://seventowers.u7feudallands.com/images/newfaces.png
[03:02:55] <Marzo> Oh, hi Servus
[03:03:05] <petermdodge> Better :)
[03:03:12] <servus> The bottom jaana is really, really creepy
[03:03:14] <petermdodge> till kinda .. eh though. Hmm.
[03:03:35] <Marzo> This is the best I can do today
[03:03:56] <Marzo> (after I get a good night's sleep, it may be another matter)
[03:04:25] <petermdodge> Heh heh
[03:04:36] <Marzo> (and at least, her neck isn't broken anymore :-p)
[03:04:43] <Crysta> yeah
[03:04:43] <Crysta> lol
[03:04:44] <petermdodge> Yup lol.
[03:06:27] <Marzo> Servus: what is creepy about the bottom Jaana?
[03:06:47] <petermdodge> Her expression probably but it's in both.
[03:07:06] <petermdodge> She's staring at me o_o
[03:07:08] <servus> Her eyes look more like empty, black sockets
[03:07:13] <Crysta> yeah
[03:07:15] <Crysta> thats it
[03:07:15] <servus> Draw some whites of the eyes in
[03:07:22] <Marzo> K
[03:07:23] <Crysta> i think her eyes were fine before TBJ
[03:07:24] <Crysta> er
[03:07:26] <Crysta> TBH
[03:07:33] <Crysta> dont ask what TBJ means.. hell if i know
[03:07:38] <Marzo> K, I'll revert them
[03:10:31] <servus> Tomatobutter and Jelly
[03:11:02] <servus> How many more portraits do you need to make?
[03:11:38] <Crysta> one for every BG NPC
[03:11:39] <Marzo> About one for every NPC in BG which doesn't have an SI-style portrait
[03:11:45] <Crysta> plus feudal lands ones
[03:11:49] <Marzo> Yep
[03:12:12] <servus> Where are you in TS, Crysta?
[03:12:38] <Crysta> TS?
[03:12:39] <Crysta> oh
[03:12:49] <Crysta> i was in heartwood in the blackness contemplating existance
[03:12:53] <Crysta> but i got bored and logged off
[03:12:53] <Crysta> lol
[03:13:26] <servus> Help -> Physically stuck! :p
[03:13:35] <Crysta> dont have to
[03:13:43] <Crysta> seems to be a Gm hidden there removing stuck players
[03:13:48] <Crysta> but i told him not to move me
[03:13:49] <Crysta> lol
[03:18:35] <Crysta> sorry :P
[03:18:45] <Crysta> im actually tired and prolly getting off soon too
[03:22:04] <servus> OK
[03:22:13] <servus> You "TFL Team Members" have fun remaking all those portraits ;)
[03:22:14] <Crysta> soon being now
[03:22:15] <Crysta> :P
[03:22:16] <Crysta> night all
[03:22:17] <servus> Bye!
[03:22:21] <Marzo> Good night
[03:23:20] <-- Crysta has left #TFL ()
[03:24:06] <Marzo> Heh
[03:24:41] <Marzo> There have been two keyphrases that led people to my website through search engines: "exult 1.4" and "debt"
[03:25:03] <Marzo> How on Earth you can look for debt and reach my website, I have no idea
[03:27:41] <petermdodge> The third top search term for TFL is sex
[03:27:45] <petermdodge> Don't ask.
[03:27:48] <petermdodge> I don't know.
[03:27:52] <Marzo> lol
[03:28:46] <Marzo> Well, at least for the Exult and TFL CVS, I think that "nude" would be an understandable term (due to the amount of nude avatar sprites)
[03:28:55] <petermdodge> Lol
[03:33:57] <Marzo> Hm. What would you think of having the bucket-head avatar's bucket helm as the icon for the Avatar Pack?
[03:35:49] <petermdodge> lol
[03:35:52] <petermdodge> hilarity
[03:37:05] <Marzo> Well, in any case, I am following Crysta's lead and going to bed too
[03:37:24] <Marzo> So, good night
[03:37:31] <Marzo> exultbot: bye
[03:37:31] <exultbot> goodbye!

[23:37:29] <Crysta> hi marzo :)
[23:37:35] <Marzo> Hi
[23:37:52] <Crysta> whats up?
[23:38:35] <Marzo> Oh, just hacking a batch job to update TFL's vga files more easily when I change the Keyring mod
[23:38:41] <Crysta> ah
[23:39:10] <Marzo> (it would be really easier if I were to simply replace all pngs with shps...)
[23:39:19] <Crysta> >.>
[23:39:58] <Marzo> Holy crap
[23:40:16] <Marzo> The TFL CVS needs a quick update *bad*
[23:40:38] <Marzo> I mean, a lot of pngs in it are running the risk of being corrupted by download
