February 2002 Update
It doesn't seem like as much has happened in the last few months, but here's some of it:
IP ADDRESS CHANGE ON 19-Jan-2002
Other changes to the Space System are unknown at this time. There is no estimate as to when the new Space system will be complete for testing or implemented.
The wizards continue to tweak the new 'no-bounce' system to avoid players being stuck in rooms due to various factors. Currently it seems that players get stuck mostly when multiple players as a group are attacking one or more monsters.
The HM Jedi 35 skill Advanced Farsight was replaced with Advanced Retaliate for a number of reasons mostly related to PK or using it to cheat on quests or find secret areas. Farsight has also been changed so that non-PKers may not farsight PKers due to excessive complaint and as another means of alleviating non-PK interference in PK.
A lek-piercing parlor for Twi'leks has opened for business on Ryloth recently.
Ivan had to put the work on the new HM quest on hold for more pressing matters in real life, but might be able to return to the MUD sometime in March if all goes well.
Kess is in the process of rewriting the Mickey Rukh Hat quest.
The Jedi Master quest now has a level restriction on those who wish to complete it. See the Jedi Master file for details.
Team outcasts are now shown in > < on the Killers list.
Khayyin created an Army PK-only quest. You can get more details on it from a Bounty Hunter on Alderaan.
The wizards approved of an ran a PK PROMOTION period from Dec 19, 2001 until Jan 2, 2002. During this time period, players were allowed to sign and unsign the PK book with no penalty of death or level loss, no experience loss when dying a PK death, and no inflation of team death tolls. Players were expected to give feedback and current PKers were expected to help show newer PKers some of the ropes in the hopes that more people would try it and stick with it if given some instruction on SWmud PK tactics. While there were some naysayers of the attempt, overall most PKers considered it a success at getting people to at least TRY player-killing.
The next PK PROMOTION period will be March 10 through March 16, 2002.
