Shell 240 - Desert Library

Postby nathan2055 » Tue Dec 21, 2010 4:11 pm

Current status: Planning
This is an interesting shell I'm planning:

In the middle of a not so vast desert, there is a library building containing linking books to several locations.

Please vote on the linking books for the building!

Note: The list is subject to change!!!!!!!

I'd prefer linking books to explorer-created ages over Cyan ages.
Can we rebuild it? Yes, we can - here's how.

I agree with Robert. And Eder Kemo for example is a reward for solving (part of) Eder Gira. It should not be given away like that.

When linking to other fan ages it may be a good idea to ask their creators if this fits their story.

I agree with you two. Another reason are technical issues, for example the whole game mechanism expect the Cleft to be unreachable until you finished the first journey. Camp Bravo contains a link to the Cleft, and that can possibly lead to an inconsistent state of your avatar and strange behaviour. Another point is that doing the link correct is hard as linking has a lot of implications (especially on Shards).
I prefer e-mails to "diafero arcor de" (after adding the at and the dot) over PMs.

@D'lanor - Oops. I meant to punch in Eder Gira. I'm always confused with those names :lol: :lol: :lol: .
@diafero - I believe the Camp Bravo link in there is to allow people to get the Blue Sparkle Island, Birds, and Cleft Pedestal Relto Pages without beating the game first. But you're right, using cheats to get the imager code then go to the Cleft, and even the whole Cleft Pedestal Relto Pages could potentially cause (or have caused) glitches.
@Everyone - I thought up that list not to cause problems in the long run (e.g. if someone didn't have an Age installed, see http://forum.guildofwriters.com/viewtopic.php?f=111&t=4808). But it could cause other problems. I'll rewrite the list.

EDIT: Finished re-writing the list!

You can do the link in a way that the user does not crash if the target age is not installed, but instead gets an error message.

Yes! Andy's Nexus is wired that way, and so is the Neolbah book at shell 415! Thanks!
