    Re: Gold Rage IV vs. Gold Rage V

    .. She doesn't, really. xD Just look at them.

    From 4 to 5 there is:
    Delay on 4, not on 5
    1:30 recycle on 4, 0:25 recycle on 5
    1600 hoard cost on 4, 360 hoard cost on 5

    Re: A "Re-vamp" for the Lunus Rite of Passage?

    Lore wise the only difference between the two factions is their view towards bipeds, with a slight tendency for Lunus to lean melee, and Helian to lean magic. The concept that a Helian is less of a...

    Re: Kickstarter

    The money (and time) that Virtrium would need to replace Alchemy is nowhere near what they'd need to make a new Istaria from scratch. I understand quite well the complications involved in game...

    Re: Kickstarter

    I've no idea what you're going on about, but whatever it is, you seem passive aggressive about it. There would be no "redoing" the engine, there would be making the game interface with a new one.

    Well, if done properly, people still complaining would essentially be complaining that the game runs better. :P

    Re: Kickstarter

    Not necessarily. Game engines are essentially a cumulation of engines (e.g. the sound engine, graphics engine, physics engine). What Istaria could really do with is replacing Alchemy.

    Re: Update delta 253 / Client 385.19

    Your concept of "Any input is good input and much appreciated" only holds true when that input doesn't pit a community against the developers / themselves, which most suggestions (especially ones...

    Re: Update delta 253 / Client 385.19

    It would be useful to have more substance behind a suggestion like that for it to work as a suggestion. How exactly, for example, do you quantify an hour of testing? Just being on the server? What's...

    Re: Might be leaving again...

    You could be confusing the 80x80 that's nearby, because the 120x120 was added in the 2012 Summer revamp when the Devs went through to add, remove, and change many of Istaria's plots:...

    Re: Might be leaving again...

    There's no way the 120x120 could have been sitting there for 5 years with nothing done to it as there didn't exist a 120x120 in Valley of Repose (or anywhere, for that matter) before 2012. Actually I...
  12. Re: Altimeter and pitch indicator for flying dragons.

    A very basic pitch indicator could be gained by taking a delta of your height each time your coordinate is updated, this would give you a +/- value of how fast you're ascending or descending.

    I really dislike arbitrary limitations, such as games that opt to make a projectile disappear after a set distance rather then just allowing the projectile's arc to be the (naturally) limiting...

    Hardly the only way, nor necessarily is it always the best way. Someone capable of figuring things out for themselves will easily earn my respect.

    The last one would really bug me. The first two, however, not so much.

    No, utility means usefulness. It does not simply imply usefulness. You're also wrong that Utility and Specialty are antonyms. They are not. There's actually a contradiction in logic in what you say....
