GD graced us with his presence in the UO hood. The log is EXTREMELY long since we talk so much but he did let us in on a few of the things we've been asking for here on the forums.

We also went in to solve Tsogal. Went really smooth but GD makes a pretty funny remark in the middle there :)

(03/07 22:32:04) Kedry: Are we allowed to choose some?
(03/07 22:32:31) K'Tania: If you ask ResEng W.Corat he can tell you what happens when I try.

(03/07 22:34:28) Greydragon: no marker board..
(03/07 22:34:37) Overdrive: Oh, if you're not already swamped with questions... is there any plan to get rid of the numbering if you happen to reset an age? It kinda bugs me that i'm talking from Overdrive(3) Negilahn :P
(03/07 22:34:39) Keira Trent: goodnight everyone it was nice meeting you all and I hope to come by again.
(03/07 22:34:42) Greydragon: first tim i am going to say this in a long time..
(03/07 22:34:45) K'Tania: But then I had a REsEng visit my hood and found out that the bug was still there

(03/07 22:35:04) Greydragon: I will look in the vault..

(03/07 22:35:15) Kedry: Shall I not log this, then? ;)
(03/07 22:35:33) Tayrtahn: so, any special reason you said today was a good day?

(03/07 22:36:42) Overdrive: Is it the same vault that has the Ark of the Covenant?

(03/07 22:37:18) K'Tania: ah but i have my view and the ResEng's view as well.
(03/07 22:37:25) K'Tania: K
(03/07 22:37:40) Nyx: GD, if I may ask, how do you prioritize which bugs get addressed first
(03/07 22:37:55) Greydragon: Um.. today was a good day just cause we had a meeting and i think everyone left feeling pretty good.. well everyone who didn't have any bugs..
(03/07 22:37:57) Chloe: overdrive, the Ark isn't in the vault anymore. After WII was one, we moved it to Area 51 along with Walt Disney's frozen head.
(03/07 22:38:04) Thumbs up from Tayrtahn
(03/07 22:38:24) Chloe: won not one.

(03/07 22:38:51) Kedry: Yeah, this'll make a great pic for my new imager. ;)
(03/07 22:38:54) Jackburne: What is this? Green hat night!
(03/07 22:39:01) Nyx: I'm sure
(03/07 22:39:05) Greydragon: We are working on a way to "catch up"
(03/07 22:39:07) Maria Valentine: all hail the green hatts!
(03/07 22:39:09) HarryPowers: yep.. the irish are comming
(03/07 22:39:12) Maria Valentine: hats
(03/07 22:39:24) Nyx nods her head
(03/07 22:39:36) Jan Stepmeir: don't worry about the Irish, great scientists one second, drunks the next...
(03/07 22:39:41) Kedry: Oh, GD, one of the main complaints is the "lack of story"....will we be seing any more in the near future?
(03/07 22:39:53) Greydragon: want a perfect world idea?
(03/07 22:39:57) Maria Valentine: hey! I resemble that remark!

(03/07 22:40:22) Nyx: yes please
(03/07 22:40:23) AKA: sure
(03/07 22:40:26) HarryPowers: so do I.... where is the link book again for that perfect world
(03/07 22:40:30) Overdrive: Idea's are always good
(03/07 22:40:36) Jan Stepmeir: we could use more shrubbery
(03/07 22:40:46) Jackburne sneezes
(03/07 22:41:07) Tayrtahn sneezes
(03/07 22:41:09) Jackburne sneezes
(03/07 22:41:14) Jan Stepmeir: ok who's playing with the lights?
(03/07 22:41:20) Kedry: *Notices sneezes* Er...maybe less flowering shrubbery...
(03/07 22:41:22) Jan Stepmeir: you're kicking up dust
(03/07 22:41:28) Tayrtahn starts to laugh
(03/07 22:41:52) Kedry: Nice Max T-shirt, by the way. Do you play them?
(03/07 22:41:57) Greydragon: IN a perfect world you would have one team just making new content and fixing bugs... another team making content and fixing bugs but at a staggered date. and o
(03/07 22:42:19) Maria Valentine does a dance
(03/07 22:42:25) Nine-O-Nine: well.... right now.... gotta manage scarce resources..... bugs seems a bit more pressing, ATM..... but.... that's just me
(03/07 22:42:40) Greydragon: So.. when one team is launching content for an update.. the other team is making content and fixing bugs for the next update..
(03/07 22:42:49) JWPlatt: And would this perfect world have about 75 employees in it?
(03/07 22:42:52) HarryPowers: Valentine don't distract us here... with the little dance.
(03/07 22:43:08) Greydragon: jw.. maybe i don't do the math..
(03/07 22:43:11) K'Tania is waiting...
(03/07 22:43:13) Maria Valentine: oh sorry
(03/07 22:43:17) Nyx nods her head
(03/07 22:43:24) Kedry hums the Sam & Max theme song
(03/07 22:43:28) Tayrtahn: what is the current staff size?
(03/07 22:43:31) JWPlatt: YOu get help on all these puzzles then? :)
(03/07 22:43:35) HarryPowers: just hanking your chain ... Dance on...
(03/07 22:43:51) Jackburne points
(03/07 22:44:04) Greydragon: Tay- I was tryng to figure that out the other day..
(03/07 22:44:14) Yellowdog: Im sure bugs get fixed in importance of gameplat... Things that intirupt gameplay get fixed first ...minor Graphic details second...
(03/07 22:44:14) Greydragon: but is smaller then it use to be...
(03/07 22:44:17) Kedry: Didn't RAWA say 40-50?
(03/07 22:44:22) Overdrive: Has the push to release so many smaller ages been part of the plan to set the stage for this story content peope have been requesting?
(03/07 22:44:27) Kedry: 'round 48?
(03/07 22:44:32) Greydragon: Yellow.. yes.. if it blocks gameplay its first..
(03/07 22:44:41) JWPlatt: RAWA said 40-something.
(03/07 22:44:45) Greydragon: Kedry- smaller
(03/07 22:44:48) Overdrive: I mean
(03/07 22:44:51) Kedry: 38?
(03/07 22:44:52) Overdrive: erm mt
(03/07 22:44:54) Greydragon: Haha
(03/07 22:44:57) Kedry: '-'
(03/07 22:44:57) AKA: lol
(03/07 22:44:58) Nyx: that's sounds like a good system, I'm just concerned that the bugs that affect a very small number of players will never make it to the top of the list. Personal interest
(03/07 22:45:15) JWPlatt: Because of the new hires for ResEng's.
(03/07 22:45:18) Greydragon: nyx.. i think we try to get them all..
(03/07 22:45:29) Greydragon: i know some bugs are harder to find then others
(03/07 22:45:51) Yellowdog: I just want to say I think you all are doing a FANTASIC job!!!!
(03/07 22:45:54) Yellowdog cheers
(03/07 22:45:58) Greydragon: We are tracking this one down now.. and we have found others along the way which we think have helped some people.
(03/07 22:46:00) Tayrtahn cheers
(03/07 22:46:00) HarryPowers: yes ... i agree...
(03/07 22:46:00) Tai'lahr cheers

(03/07 22:46:10) Kedry: Not to bother you(Much), but I've been having a rare bug with my personal log-in picture where it cuts off the side...
(03/07 22:46:11) AKA cheers
(03/07 22:46:26) Nine-O-Nine: because i'd really like to re-join my hood.... and since AKA's the only remaining member... i can't.
(03/07 22:46:31) Tayrtahn: I have noticed a few bug fixes along the way - it makes me happy
(03/07 22:46:34) Jackburne: Green hat night
(03/07 22:46:38) Yellowdog: Im just glad to be here and hope to be for a long tim

(03/07 22:46:50) Yellowdog: time
(03/07 22:46:54) Nyx: Your guys are really dedicated and I appreciate all the time they've spent trying to fix my bugs.
(03/07 22:46:55) K'Tania: Bye the way thank w. cowart...he's been a big help with the bevin bug.
(03/07 22:47:22) Jan Stepmeir: I know, I've often wanted to time travel to 5 years into the future and see how URU has changed over that length of time
(03/07 22:47:29) Yellowdog pats graydragon and Cyan on th back!
(03/07 22:47:33) Nine-O-Nine: i hear that bugs' been upped to top priority.... which is nice :-)
(03/07 22:47:45) JWPlatt cheers for the great job all the ResEng's do!

(03/07 22:47:47) Greydragon: we do the best we can with the team we have..
(03/07 22:47:54) Montgomery: Just got here -- which bug?
(03/07 22:47:56) Kedry nods his head
(03/07 22:48:14) Greydragon: we, like you, want more content and story.. we try to do as much as we can
(03/07 22:48:14) K'Tania: And tell everyone there thank you...at the time uru originally came out my system couldn't support it and only now have i been able to play.
(03/07 22:48:14) HarryPowers: Seahag.. do not worry you can remarry in here>
(03/07 22:48:29) Greydragon: I understand that the new ages lack backstory...
(03/07 22:48:31) Nine-O-Nine: some people can't join a hood or join other to a hood. they are blocked, Monty
(03/07 22:48:39) Montgomery: Greydragon, is there any process in plce to educate the new post-beta players how to report bugs?
(03/07 22:48:40) JWPlatt: There's a bug flying around the light right next to GreyDragon rigth now...
(03/07 22:48:48) S'eahag: Lol, this one has been bring food home so I can play!
(03/07 22:48:50) Yellowdog: but forward progress is nice!

(03/07 22:49:01) K'Tania laughs
(03/07 22:49:11) Montgomery: hHx, 9
(03/07 22:49:15) Montgomery: thx
(03/07 22:49:17) HarryPowers: yes i see that bug
(03/07 22:49:20) Jan Stepmeir: take your Relto book, open it up, get the bug into it and rapidly close it shut
(03/07 22:49:22) Tayrtahn: ack, he was about to comment on the lack of backstory! I wanna hear that
(03/07 22:49:24) Greydragon: Mont - i'll mention it.. be nice to have a guide i bet..
(03/07 22:49:32) Jackburne does a dance
(03/07 22:49:38) HarryPowers: right.. close that book
(03/07 22:49:51) Overdrive: Do you have a plan to start adding backstory to the new ages?
(03/07 22:49:53) Danster (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(03/07 22:50:11) AKA: well we get the story on Tsogal and Delin?
(03/07 22:50:19) Greydragon: well depends on how you think we need to add the back story..
(03/07 22:50:23) AKA: and what the Rings in relto mean?
(03/07 22:50:34) Greydragon: All you really want to know.. is why was it a d'ni age
(03/07 22:50:46) Greydragon: and how does yeesha and bahro fit in right now..

(03/07 22:50:59) Tayrtahn: that sounds good
(03/07 22:51:00) Yellowdog: thats a great start!
(03/07 22:51:06) From Nebodin in D'ni-Ae'gura: diddle de dee, anyone keen for a drink in the kahlo pub ;P
(03/07 22:51:09) Kedry: Well, we already know the D'ni had garden ages.

(03/07 22:51:18) Yellowdog: have you heard from yeesha?
(03/07 22:51:19) Kedry claps his hands
(03/07 22:51:23) HarryPowers cheers
(03/07 22:51:25) Overdrive: in a word yes, but it doesnt have to pile up so much, its jsut we dont have very much in the way of gentle direction.
(03/07 22:51:27) K'Tania: GD i'll pm you tomorrow. and thanks
(03/07 22:51:30) Montgomery: Greydragon, a bunch of us sent a letter (vi D'net) to the DRC almost 3 weeks ago asking for information about Pento. But no response. Are they too busy, just blowing us off, or maybe they didn't get the letter? How can we get confirmation that they received it?
(03/07 22:51:43) Greydragon: might not be in journals.. but i think you will start to understand things..
(03/07 22:51:47) Nine-O-Nine: yes.... or is it even a ... "Yeesha" age... or a "him" age.... (that guy she reffers to in the intro)
(03/07 22:51:52) Greydragon: MOnt - you would have to ask them...
(03/07 22:51:59) Montgomery: How?
(03/07 22:52:04) Greydragon: HIm?
(03/07 22:52:14) Greydragon: Oh ya him... :)
(03/07 22:52:16) Kedry: Oh yes...we all want to know who "He" is...
(03/07 22:52:21) AKA: lol
(03/07 22:52:22) Nine-O-Nine: she says "He comnes.... and i will come"... so...
(03/07 22:52:25) Tayrtahn: awesome - it's really great to hear that these are not "once-off" ages
(03/07 22:52:26) Overdrive: The part about "He will come as well"
(03/07 22:52:28) Kedry: Who is he?
(03/07 22:52:30) Nine-O-Nine: we don't know who "He" is....
(03/07 22:52:32) Yellowdog: GD, Has Yesha tried to contact you all?
(03/07 22:52:38) Montgomery: I guess it Ahlsender, the Great King
(03/07 22:53:02) JWPlatt: Some think the story should be a stronger narrative with events which explorers can participate in and change to some extent, but that the main story should not wait for us so much.
(03/07 22:53:31) conndarus: im verry sorry.. who knows uruberlu?
(03/07 22:53:34) Overdrive: Its just nice to get a little positive feeback that what we're doing is the right thing... or even if its the wrong thing. But now all we have are bharo rings for the sake of rings...
(03/07 22:54:01) Overdrive: or sparklies for the sake of sparklies
(03/07 22:54:11) Greydragon: JW - Cyan just has to be smart on it..
(03/07 22:54:12) Tayrtahn: hey, the sparklies are pretty
(03/07 22:54:25) Yellowdog: and I heard there was a meeting with Sharper... Any info on that?/
(03/07 22:54:28) Greydragon: its hard to have the drc come in.. if they don't really have anything new to say?
(03/07 22:54:39) Greydragon: that would be a boring story
(03/07 22:54:41) Montgomery: For me the most frustrating thing is that it seems like the only way we explorers can impact the game is by holding these childish sit-ins. Nothing else works.
(03/07 22:54:43) Kedry: Well, we could always have more Cate controversy...
(03/07 22:54:47) Nine-O-Nine: lol ok. That's true
(03/07 22:54:53) Kedry: Laxman's job on the line...
(03/07 22:55:02) Kedry: Kodama something or other...
(03/07 22:55:07) Tayrtahn: hey, we'd be happy to play a round of Heek with an off-duty DRC member
(03/07 22:55:20) S'eahag: Table's borked
(03/07 22:55:23) Greydragon: I think all the DRC's jobs are on the line.. lol jk
(03/07 22:55:26) AKA: lol Sea
(03/07 22:55:27) Overdrive: lol
(03/07 22:55:53) Nine-O-Nine: is it really? Havent played heek in a bit....
(03/07 22:55:53) Nyx: on another level, it's kind of interesting to watch all of the collecting going on in the context of Yeesha's lectures on greed and selfishness
(03/07 22:56:38) Montgomery: Surely the DRC is made up of more then 5 people (plus the very helpful ResEngs) -- even a visit from some junior grade electrician third class working on the lightin system would be welcome.
(03/07 22:56:40) Overdrive: I agree nyx, i just wish we had more context to the content. A nice balance helps everyone see the whole picture
(03/07 22:56:40) Greydragon: ha.. the sit-ins... thats all i will say on that subject
(03/07 22:56:48) Jan Stepmeir: how is it greed when it's freely given?
(03/07 22:56:50) Drew Kafka: OK. I didn't get the memo. Someone help me out here. Are we shooting an in-cavern Lucky charms commercial or should I break out the leprechaun spray?
(03/07 22:57:06) Kedry: New hat today, Drew.
(03/07 22:57:14) JWPlatt clears his comments about sit-ins.
(03/07 22:57:20) Drew Kafka: Oh. Thanks you.
(03/07 22:57:26) HarryPowers: Its bad green hair day...
(03/07 22:57:27) Greydragon: Nice Drew...
(03/07 22:57:29) Yellowdog: What everyone has to understand is every day WE are having an impact on the game... If you think GD is here omly as GD or if other drc and developers arn on here as new players... you are mistaken
(03/07 22:57:37) Nyx: even though they are gifts, we still see our avaricious streak coming out, I'm no exception
(03/07 22:57:45) Nine-O-Nine: check your closet,Drew.... someone snuck a hat in it. A reverse-kleptomaniac or such....
(03/07 22:58:00) Greydragon: darn elves..
(03/07 22:58:01) Overdrive: Maybe the bharo are part irish?
(03/07 22:58:02) Greydragon: lol
(03/07 22:58:05) Greydragon: jk
(03/07 22:58:05) AKA: lol
(03/07 22:58:09) Kedry: Lprechauns! ^_^
(03/07 22:58:12) HarryPowers: I think they are...
(03/07 22:58:14) AKA: we love elves
(03/07 22:58:48) Greydragon: let me say this.. [b]
(03/07 22:58:51) Jackburne: OK I got my green hat now
(03/07 22:58:57) [b]Greydragon: we are listening to your concerns..

(03/07 22:59:11) AKA cheers
(03/07 22:59:18) Kedry cheers
(03/07 22:59:19) Nine-O-Nine: i got a question that's been itching me for a bit......
(03/07 22:59:22) AKA: thank you
(03/07 22:59:24) HarryPowers cheers
(03/07 22:59:24) Montgomery: GD, there has been a rumor going around that they cavern is getting lighter. Are the ResEngs actively making progress on the lake?
(03/07 22:59:25) Greydragon: The design team has been reading those threads about what people want.. most of the ideas are things we want too..
(03/07 22:59:26) Nyx claps her hands
(03/07 22:59:28) Walker waiting with bated breath
(03/07 22:59:30) Nine-O-Nine: the Nexus book in relto....
(03/07 22:59:31) Overdrive: oh hehe, your tease about sound recording on the Live forums. Any truth to that or were you just pulling our legs
(03/07 22:59:32) Arreaon (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(03/07 22:59:33) Greydragon: Time...
(03/07 22:59:45) Jan Stepmeir: well as long you don't sit on them, some of them are spikey... :x
(03/07 22:59:56) Tayrtahn claps his hands
(03/07 22:59:58) Nine-O-Nine: Whay can't we use the nexus book in relto the same way we can use the ones in the city?
(03/07 23:00:16) Kedry: Relto isn't in the Nexus, like the bahro caves or the cleft.
(03/07 23:00:27) Greydragon: i don't kow anything about sound recording..
(03/07 23:00:31) Greydragon: know
(03/07 23:00:41) Nine-O-Nine: And? it's sstill a link book.....
(03/07 23:00:43) Overdrive: lol so it was just a tease :P
(03/07 23:00:45) Montgomery: GD, please thank you and the team for tweeking the physics -- I can actually kick the firemarbles now.
(03/07 23:00:48) Tayrtahn: hm, was that rawa who posted that?
(03/07 23:00:50) Greydragon: Maybe..
(03/07 23:00:59) Greydragon: OH we can
(03/07 23:01:03) Greydragon: sweet

GD goes and kicks around some firemarbles :)

(03/07 23:01:04) Jackburne does a dance
(03/07 23:01:06) Kedry: Really? The firemarbles are fixed?
(03/07 23:01:21) Tayrtahn: whoa, it got crowded in here
(03/07 23:01:22) Kedry roars with laughter
(03/07 23:01:24) Yellowdog roars with laughter
(03/07 23:01:26) Overdrive: lol
(03/07 23:01:31) Kedry: Testing 'em, GD? XD
(03/07 23:01:32) Nine-O-Nine: wow no kidding
(03/07 23:01:34) JWPlatt: Let me ask this: Is there anything the explorers could do through Cate and the DRC which would have significance to certain corporate and gaming companies which could add to your actual resources?
(03/07 23:01:45) Greydragon: darn doors...
(03/07 23:01:59) Kedry: Where'd you go?
(03/07 23:02:07) HarryPowers: bunch of crazy firemarble hitters
(03/07 23:02:08) AKA: lol
(03/07 23:02:24) Montgomery: GD, you didn't know?
(03/07 23:02:27) Kedry: Gah, you're more agile than a Bahro! O_O
(03/07 23:02:29) Overdrive: Yeah theres a few issues with the doors, and the "borked" heek table :(
(03/07 23:02:30) Thumbs up from Greydragon
(03/07 23:02:36) S'eahag: I finally got that rock out of my doorway too
(03/07 23:02:49) Jan Stepmeir: UO breaks all their stuff
(03/07 23:02:57) Overdrive: :(
(03/07 23:02:59) Nine-O-Nine: we're nuts!
(03/07 23:03:01) Nine-O-Nine: :-)
(03/07 23:03:06) Overdrive: we need fischer-price heek tables
(03/07 23:03:10) Overdrive: unbreakable
(03/07 23:03:12) Nine-O-Nine: lol
(03/07 23:03:13) AKA: lol
(03/07 23:03:14) Jan Stepmeir: lol
(03/07 23:03:18) Kedry: One more question, GD, there was that one time when someone on the DRC walked through one of the hood doors...
(03/07 23:03:20) Greydragon is checking something out
(03/07 23:03:31) Kedry tries to be funny
(03/07 23:03:35) HarryPowers: made with big Dni plastic Fischer price parts.
(03/07 23:03:38) Jan Stepmeir: Kodama?
(03/07 23:03:39) Jackburne laughs
(03/07 23:03:46) Kedry: Yeah, I think it was Kodama...
(03/07 23:03:56) Greydragon: Kedry - game bug
(03/07 23:03:59) Jackburne sneezes
(03/07 23:04:04) Kedry: Really? Ok.
(03/07 23:04:06) Tayrtahn: aww
(03/07 23:04:09) Greydragon: lol
(03/07 23:04:18) Montgomery: GD, low priority, but ... are there any plans to fix the telescopes in the hoods?
(03/07 23:04:20) Tayrtahn: we're ever hopeful
(03/07 23:04:30) Tayrtahn: fix 'em?
(03/07 23:04:30) AKA: what is the reason we can't stand on the railing in the gallery anymore?
(03/07 23:04:35) Greydragon: not everything can be explained away if ic story..
(03/07 23:04:35) Kedry: I KNEW they were just rock slabs! :P
(03/07 23:04:37) Arreaon: The telescopes need fixing?
(03/07 23:04:46) S'eahag: Huh?
(03/07 23:04:55) Nine-O-Nine: what's with the scopes?
(03/07 23:04:56) Arreaon: You can see something in them.
(03/07 23:04:57) JWPlatt: Fix them so they show the dots for people on the other side.
(03/07 23:05:00) The Antagonist: hey not to bother, but are there any people who can do the garden with me?
(03/07 23:05:03) Montgomery: Well, they are out of focus
(03/07 23:05:05) Jan Stepmeir: AKA, they fixed that, it's in the release notes
(03/07 23:05:06) Magus2332: tsogal going to get some weather or other effects like delin?
(03/07 23:05:08) Nine-O-Nine: ah.
(03/07 23:05:15) K'Tania: i can
(03/07 23:05:15) Greydragon: JW - no
(03/07 23:05:19) From Vormaen in Vormaen's Relto: Hola folks...
(03/07 23:05:21) Greydragon: jk..
(03/07 23:05:23) Arreaon: I can't find a bevin with a Delin linking book
(03/07 23:05:44) Arreaon: WHOA! Someone got THREE sparklies?
(03/07 23:05:46) Greydragon: brb
(03/07 23:05:46) Overdrive: Ah good point. Will the delin books increase in their availability?
(03/07 23:05:50) AKA: i know that Jan...I want to know why they fixed it
(03/07 23:06:01) Overdrive: Some hoods have sort of fallen off the listing
(03/07 23:06:01) Montgomery (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(03/07 23:06:02) AKA: it was nice to sit on the railing
(03/07 23:06:13) Brandylyne: friendlies had a delin
(03/07 23:06:16) K'Tania:
(03/07 23:06:16) Kedry: That GD...he's too fast for us... :P
(03/07 23:06:19) Montgomery: Yep. Still showing garbage.
(03/07 23:06:21) Tayrtahn: whoosh
(03/07 23:06:22) The Antagonist: anybody for the garden door?
(03/07 23:06:23) Arreaon: WHOA WHOA WHOA
(03/07 23:06:31) Overdrive: He's afk in the fountian :)
(03/07 23:06:32) Kedry (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(03/07 23:06:35) K'Tania: montgomery
(03/07 23:06:49) Arreaon: How the fiery abyss did someone get THREE sparklies when most people can only find one?
(03/07 23:06:50) Montgomery: K'Tania ...
(03/07 23:06:57) S'eahag: We need deeper water so's you can hide better
(03/07 23:06:59) K'Tania: do you have a log started?
(03/07 23:07:01) Tayrtahn: looks like the city to me
(03/07 23:07:01) Jan Stepmeir: if anyone has a permanent marker we could write on him...
(03/07 23:07:05) Nine-O-Nine: 3 have been released, one at a time
(03/07 23:07:06) Overdrive: lol
(03/07 23:07:06) Tayrtahn: I have three sparklies...
(03/07 23:07:09) Kedry: Arreaon: They've been around a while.
(03/07 23:07:13) Kedry: One per month.
(03/07 23:07:13) Montgomery: Arreaon -- a new one each month, starting in January.
(03/07 23:07:19) Arreaon: Wow...I missed that
(03/07 23:07:24) Uthfas does a dance
(03/07 23:07:26) Montgomery: Me, no.
(03/07 23:07:31) Danster: Has there been any new news on Negahlin animals anyone?
(03/07 23:07:32) Arreaon: Seriously? Then they have 2 months of lined up content?
(03/07 23:07:39) K'Tania: k, guess i saty then
(03/07 23:07:48) Greydragon: like the hats.. limited time - get them why they are hot..
(03/07 23:07:49) Montgomery: I arrived in the middle. Anyonelogging this chat?
(03/07 23:07:50) Arreaon: Who has gotten through the portal
(03/07 23:07:59) Uthfas does a dance
(03/07 23:08:00) Kedry: Will my hat dissapear? O_O
(03/07 23:08:02) Tayrtahn: I'm sure someone is logging this
(03/07 23:08:03) Overdrive: Most of us have Arreaon Its been more or less solved
(03/07 23:08:07) Uthfas does a dance
(03/07 23:08:08) Yellowdog: Can we keep them? The hats??
(03/07 23:08:08) Overdrive: just a matter of timing
(03/07 23:08:17) Arreaon: I should have logged on earlier then.
(03/07 23:08:18) Vormaen: SHorah folks
(03/07 23:08:21) JWPlatt: No one logs the GD visits. *choke *
(03/07 23:08:22) Greydragon: Yellow they work like the santa hat
(03/07 23:08:24) Vormaen: Shorah GD.
(03/07 23:08:29) Kedry: I have a log.
(03/07 23:08:32) Overdrive: I've been logging :)
(03/07 23:08:35) Yellowdog cheers
(03/07 23:08:41) Kedry: It'll be hard to edit, though. We talk a lot. :P
(03/07 23:08:47) Nine-O-Nine: how's the randomization bug for Delin/Tsogal books coming along, when making a new hood?
(03/07 23:08:59) Montgomery: Ithfas -- we can't hear you.
(03/07 23:09:07) Tayrtahn tries to be funny
(03/07 23:09:11) Tayrtahn tries to be funny
(03/07 23:09:11) Kedry: Brb.
(03/07 23:09:14) Uthfas taunts you
(03/07 23:09:16) K'Tania: Kedry: from the beginning?
(03/07 23:09:22) Vormaen: GD......will we ever see Gaternay?
(03/07 23:09:26) Kedry: No, mine's imcomplete.
(03/07 23:09:27) Tayrtahn: pardon
(03/07 23:09:30) Uthfas taunts you
(03/07 23:09:39) Brandylyne: how do you start a log?
(03/07 23:09:40) Overdrive: I have a complete log, missing the first minute or so
(03/07 23:09:43) K'Tania: shucks oh well
(03/07 23:09:50) Montgomery: GD, can we expect animals AT SOME POINT in Nehgilen?
(03/07 23:09:53) Greydragon: Vormaen - basicly if the DRC find it i think you will see it..
(03/07 23:09:56) Tayrtahn: brandytyne - /startlog
(03/07 23:10:03) scarecrowjack: the fiery abyss are you staring at?
(03/07 23:10:07) Brandylyne: thank you
(03/07 23:10:09) Greydragon: Mont - there are animals..
(03/07 23:10:10) Vormaen: OH, I thought they had found it.
(03/07 23:10:15) From Danster: I came half way through all this. Did i miss anything important?
(03/07 23:10:26) Greydragon: Vormaen.. no clue.. did they?
(03/07 23:10:38) Vormaen: I would love to see a dead world next to a collapsed sun
(03/07 23:10:45) Yellowdog: you just need to wait around for houres to see one...lol
(03/07 23:10:46) Montgomery: Animals: if we do something different will we see them?
(03/07 23:10:48) Kedry: We have Ahnonay.
(03/07 23:10:57) JWPlatt: GD is channeling Kodama
(03/07 23:11:00) To Danster: A few things, but its more or less addressing story issues and content progression. It'll all be on the forums :)
(03/07 23:11:09) From Danster: Ok thanks :)
(03/07 23:11:10) Kedry: Isn't Ahnonay an accurate representation?
(03/07 23:11:16) Vormaen: The worlds that were left behind as homes are so interesting
(03/07 23:11:18) S'eahag cowers
(03/07 23:11:29) Uthfas cowers
(03/07 23:11:55) Uthfas says hey
(03/07 23:12:00) Kedry: So GD...how long have you worked at Cyan?
(03/07 23:12:07) Arreaon: There are too many people in this Bevin. I shall depart. Shorah all.
(03/07 23:12:12) Jan Stepmeir: I'd venture to say that they're impossible to get to, mostly because they don't exist in space/time anymore
(03/07 23:12:19) Vormaen: Ok, so.......DO you have any opinions of Sharper so far, GD?
(03/07 23:12:19) Kedry: Bye, Arreaon!
(03/07 23:12:23) Kedry waves
(03/07 23:12:24) Greydragon: think 4 years come May
(03/07 23:12:35) Kedry: Only 4?
(03/07 23:12:35) Vormaen: wow, four years
(03/07 23:12:40) Chloe: GD, with Dereno getting out by mistake to some, is there any plans to officially release it earlier than anticipated? Cause i know like a few people already got their bahro slabs from Dereno.
(03/07 23:12:47) Kedry: Were you hired with the coming of Live?
(03/07 23:12:54) S'eahag: Did you play Myst, before then?
(03/07 23:13:00) scarecrowjack: dork
(03/07 23:13:03) Vormaen: Live?
(03/07 23:13:11) Kedry: The first Live.
(03/07 23:13:19) Greydragon: 4 crazy years, live going down.. animating on Myst 5 , Cyan going down..
(03/07 23:13:31) Montgomery: Greydragon, are you and LdyDrgn related?
(03/07 23:13:36) Greydragon: Cyan coming back, myst online launching..
(03/07 23:13:37) Kedry roars with laughter
(03/07 23:13:38) LdyDrgn starts to laugh
(03/07 23:13:49) Greydragon: Its been emotional..
(03/07 23:13:56) Kedry claps his hands
(03/07 23:14:05) Montgomery cheers
(03/07 23:14:06) Tayrtahn: for all of us
(03/07 23:14:09) Yellowdog: mabee you can re release EoA compleated?
(03/07 23:14:14) Jan Stepmeir: is Esher still at the bottom of the world box?
(03/07 23:14:20) Greydragon: Lock, stock and 2 smoking barrels//
(03/07 23:14:49) Tayrtahn: hey, things are looking up
(03/07 23:14:50) Kedry: Oh, and GD? Someone changed your title on UO... :P
(03/07 23:14:58) Yellowdog: looks like you all wanted to do a lot more with that one...
(03/07 23:15:13) Greydragon: Yellow thats the sad thing about Myst 5.. really ate alot of the planned Myst online content..
(03/07 23:15:17) Vormaen: GD, mind if I get a pic of you in that silly hat?
(03/07 23:15:17) Greydragon: oh well we deal
(03/07 23:15:31) Nine-O-Nine: Oh really? oy....
(03/07 23:15:49) JWPlatt: Doesn't mean you can't use it here. :)
(03/07 23:15:51) Kedry: When will we see the Myst V content back in Live?
(03/07 23:15:53) Tayrtahn: I've wondered about that - were the slates and tablet going to be in Uru at some point
(03/07 23:16:01) JWPlatt: Does it?
(03/07 23:16:08) Jan Stepmeir: and created a continuity problem making Yeesha older
(03/07 23:16:11) Yellowdog: at least we dont have to carry a tablet her...lol
(03/07 23:16:15) Magus2332: the rings remind me of a slates a bit
(03/07 23:16:17) Yellowdog: here
(03/07 23:16:21) S'eahag: lol!
(03/07 23:16:27) Greydragon: JW - wish it was that easy
(03/07 23:16:39) JWPlatt: Is it a rights issue?
(03/07 23:16:51) Greydragon: JW - like everything..
(03/07 23:17:05) Kedry: :\
(03/07 23:17:05) Danster: Is it possible that we will see some familiar ages in Uru online
(03/07 23:17:17) Yellowdog: good rittens ubisoft!!!!!!!
(03/07 23:17:23) Tayrtahn still dreams of RealRiven...
(03/07 23:17:24) Tai'lahr cheers
(03/07 23:17:41) ster.ag: so do i tayr
(03/07 23:17:42) Kedry: *COUGHMYST!!!COUGH*
(03/07 23:17:46) Chloe: i wouldn't mind visiting Myst again here online
(03/07 23:17:53) Vormaen: Well, GD, thanks for your time, Mind if I take that pic before I leave?
(03/07 23:18:04) Montgomery: GD, are we at some point going to get some explanation frm Yeesha what she wanted us to learn in Delin/Tsogal?
(03/07 23:18:04) Greydragon: Go ahead.
(03/07 23:18:14) Jan Stepmeir: well if they ever open up Kveer, you might see Myst again
(03/07 23:18:25) Greydragon: NO hard feeling for ubisoft..
(03/07 23:18:28) JWPlatt: Is there a time where it would again be possible to use EoA?
(03/07 23:18:36) Greydragon: they paid us from that project.
(03/07 23:18:38) Tayrtahn: montgomery - we actually got a "yes"-ish answer on that earlier
(03/07 23:18:58) Montgomery: Thx, Tay -- I'll read the log.
(03/07 23:19:00) Tayrtahn: I do hope someone posts a log of this - we got some good info
(03/07 23:19:10) Vormaen: Thanks, keep up the good work and I'll look forward to solving an age with you one day....
(03/07 23:19:16) Chloe: montgomery, I think it was pretty obvious what the lesson was in Delin and Tsogal. Teamwork. Not all journey's and paths can be followed alone, sometimes you need some friends to help along the way.
(03/07 23:19:43) Kedry: Ye gads, GD...you sure know how do draw a crowd...
(03/07 23:19:54) Montgomery: Chloe -- I concur. I'd just like to hear Yeesha say it, that's all.
(03/07 23:19:55) Vormaen: Bye folks, have a good night
(03/07 23:19:59) Danster: I was thinking a pod age looking at people like the people in rivin would be so cool

(03/07 23:20:03) Tayrtahn: 'night, Vormaem
(03/07 23:20:03) S'eahag: Bye
(03/07 23:20:04) JWPlatt: The reason I ask is most people thought you were clear beginning in 2008 for EoA?
(03/07 23:20:13) Montgomery: G'night Vormaen
(03/07 23:20:25) Jan Stepmeir: "and when the man looked back at the one set of footprints in the sand God said, yep, that's when I sat on your back"
(03/07 23:20:50) Tayrtahn starts to laugh
(03/07 23:20:51) Greydragon: sorry
(03/07 23:21:07) Kedry: For what?
(03/07 23:21:08) Overdrive: How did Cyan react to the community collaberation to figure out Negilahn. Did it inspire them to design new puzzle concepts?
(03/07 23:21:09) Brandylyne (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(03/07 23:21:35) Greydragon: Well its always weird how people get to solutions..
(03/07 23:21:49) Yellowdog: I know you cant get to much into it but dose Cyan still have rights to POTS?
(03/07 23:22:18) AKA: I know this is trivial...but I would like to know if we will ever be able to sit on the gallery railings again.
(03/07 23:22:38) Danster: Haha
(03/07 23:22:42) Greydragon: Yellow - really can get into it
(03/07 23:22:49) Kedry laughs

(03/07 23:23:07) Greydragon: Can't
(03/07 23:23:07) Jan Stepmeir: doubtful, they usually don't undo fixes
(03/07 23:23:08) Yellowdog: its OK time will tell!

(03/07 23:23:40) Greydragon: ha!
(03/07 23:23:41) Overdrive: LOL

(03/07 23:24:13) Montgomery: So, GD ... when is that Two-Blondes-on-a-Waterbed Age being released?
(03/07 23:24:16) Greydragon: Tay - the DRC knows best :)
(03/07 23:24:24) Uthfas: should we be even more red? like Tiare here?
(03/07 23:24:28) Ravenclaw: i can help with tsogal
(03/07 23:24:31) Tayrtahn: grumble grumble...
(03/07 23:24:39) Greydragon: Mont - shakes head...
(03/07 23:24:47) TiareSim: :p
(03/07 23:25:10) Montgomery sighs.
(03/07 23:25:49) Jan Stepmeir: some of us want sheep on the waterbed...

Well, that was quick!

Highlights:
They're listening to and considering our suggestions on the forums.
We will have a better explanation/understanding for Delin, Tsogal, and Negilahn at some point!

Lots of good things. Sure brightened up my day (er... night)

Fun read. I hope Cyan can use that Myst 5 content someday; although I liked Myst 5, I wouldn't mind if they retconned it, or at least gave us the Ages to play with. Ah, copyright law...

Some Myst V related speculation.

Reading very much between the lines, with a good does of speculation thrown in, it would seem that Cyan/Gametap/Turner got a reasonable enough deal on the PotS material, but Myst V is still too pricey (given the long sales cycle for Myst games, Myst V is probably still selling for Ubisoft).

The other problem was that Myst V parceled out most of the storyline development (for Yeesha and the Bahro, plus the introduction of Esher as a living D'ni) and major ideas (tablets w/character recognition, Bahro powers, linking pillars/bubble portals) that had been planned for URU (work that no doubt represented years of thinking). It must be very challenging to have to put together a completely new storyline, when all your previous ideas, about where things were going, were so well developed but you can't use them as they're locked up in someone else's IP contract.

I highly doubt that Ubisoft has any sort of IP rights Myst V, just publishing rights. I believe this would prevent Cyan from using any ages from Myst V, but concepts, theories, etc. such as the Bahro, Esher, and so on still belong to Cyan.

That's my speculation though.

Correct. As far a I've ever understood the license, it applies exclusively to publication rights. the IP of Myst, Riven, and D'ni all still belong to Cyan.

This is a considerably different relationship than is usually seen in the industry, where getting the game published usually requires selling the IP to your publisher (as was the case with, for instance, Homeworld... developed by Relic, sold to and now wholly owned by Sierra/Vivendi). I much prefer things work out the way they did for Cyan, and I think they're honestly kinda lucky they got the deal they did.

How likely do you think it is that tablets were thought of before Myst 5 development? Those would REALLY shake up Live...

I too would very much like to see all the Myst 5 ages re-used in Uru Live. The shaft, the tunnels, and all of that. I really hope that Ubisoft will eventually, in a year maybe, give Cyan another deal on it, or for Cyan to be able to buy the stuff back. I just think that stuff belongs and needs to go back to Uru live. I don't care that i've already seen and played the ages.

In another year it won't matter... the publication contract expires sometime in 2008 ;).

Hopefully Cyan will be working on converting it to work on Uru Live in the meantime, so the content is ready to go as soon as the legal issues are cleared up.

IMHO, I think they had a strong bargaining position: the Myst series were hugely popular and folks were clamouring for more. Ubi wanted those bucks, and this enabled Cyan to keep the IP...good for them

I think this might be a good time for my message to Cyan. GreyDragon? I hope you're listening.

You may have read some of my posts about certain things I've felt Uru Live has been lacking: story, history, and a way for players to experience the story, even if they're not in the right place at the right time. Some of my posts may seem rather forceful or opinionated.

I'd like to thank you, GreyDragon, for addressing some of those concerns, however briefly, in this chat. I hope I have not offended anyone at Cyan; that was never my intention. I have been excited about Uru Live ever since I finished Uru:CC (and realized it was meant to be multiplayer :P ). My posts were to point out concerns that I, and others, have felt were and are major concerns.

Here's to wishing everything works out! Cheers! :D

I can't belive that not a single one of them said the hood gameroom when he asked what they would like to see. I'm all for big fun ages but you know what, a single room with a half dozen games built so you can play them solo would be a out of this world time killer.
