      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

    Now I understand all the complaints about chests. You have a limit of 10 chests. That’s it, so you can’t continue the game until you’ve waited six hours for a chest to open. Or you can pay 10 gems to temporarily increase your limit, but there aren’t many gem rewards. Obviously the plan here is to force players to spend real money on the game to buy gems. I guess I’ll continue playing tomorrow. I’ve got other games to play.
  2. CTDs due to streamline(???)

    You must have followed the instructions in the Oblivion XP readme. I tell people how to make OR compatible. I wish Leo would stop saying you can't use OR with Ob XP. If you're not sure, have a look at the compatibility section in the Ob XP readme.

    I believe the Citadel door fix is also available via a Bash tweak.

    Have a look at TESCOSI for instructions on how to post your load order. See the Troubleshooting section on the home page, on the right hand side.

    Here is a good article on how this game is a money trap if you’ll let it. I only play a few minutes at a time and play other stuff while waiting for stuff to finish. Even I’ve had chests pile up and I’m only level 13. I suspect I’ll have to quite entirely soon or only play once every few days. It’s just not worth spending real money on. I like rebuilding the town, but there are only a couple of dungeon layouts, so it gets tiring real quick. There is one thing I do like! You can create poisons once you build an alchemy shop. Unlike other TES games, the poisons seem to be a character ability rather than attached to a specific weapon, and you can have more than one. So if you use the equivalent of weakness to fire and weakness to poison potion, they last for a few minutes and affect your enemies no matter what kind of attack you use. However if you use a fire spell or a poison spell, or use a weapon with the appropriate enchantment, the damage is much greater and lasts for several strikes and/or spells. Now there are no ranged attacks, so your spells can be interrupted and backfire.

    Streamline can cause CTD’s. I don’t use it because I never got any benefit from it and I experienced CTD’s. Specifically, it can be a problem if you mess with the advanced heap settings. It really depends on your configuration. If I recall correctly, Arthmoor was able to configure it with advanced settings and it really helped his game.
  7. OH NO!!!!!!!! Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France has been destroyed by fire. I’m not Catholic, but I love the architecture and art in old churches and cathedrals. We didn’t get a chance to see the cathedral when we visited Paris. This is devasting.

      Things may not be as dire as they looked earlier. We’ll know more in the morning. It looks like they saved the stone towers and part of the roof. Hopefully the rose window is undamaged. Last I heard, they said they wouldn’t know for sure until the morning.

      The news about the fire is hot news in Sweden and some religious communities has already began to collect money for the renovation of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

      A Swedish news reporter who previous covered France said that the Fire Department in Paris was praised for their job and that probably minimized to damage.

      I guess will all have to wait and see what happens.

      There are several billionaires in France who are competing to pay for the restoration. Basically several of the big fashion and cosmetic companies, so it will get rebuilt. I am pleased, and somewhat shocked, to say that they were able to save a number of artifacts and paintings. Even the organ survived, although they aren’t sure of the extent of the water damage yet. It didn’t get burned though. I can’t believe they lost the roof, but so much of the interior survived. Thankfully much of it is stone, so they were able to save it. I just remember from past travels that I saw so many churches and castles destroyed by fire because they were mostly made of wood, or even if they had a mostly stone construction, they just collapsed. It would seem that taking 300 years to build the Notre Dame has paid off. Good on them and something to remember.

      Oh, and the rose window survived.

  8. Kitties!!

    Around here the mixed breed dogs are really popular. People will spend $3000 for a mixed breed dog, but not even half of that on a purebred cat.
  9. Kitties!!

    I’ll get my cats spayed and neutered once I stop breeding them. That will probably be sooner rather than later. There are way too many kittens available and people don’t care about purebred cats.

    I’m pleased to say that some things never change, including the weird positions NPC’s die in.

    The game just got updated and it looks like Beth is listening on some points. They addressed the biggest two complaints: silver chests now take only an hour to open and if you spend gems to open a chest, you are now asked to confirm the purchase if it costs more than 11 gems. Previously it was too easy to hit Open Now by mistake. They also made a few other changes including improving the rewards in the abyss levels that are below the character’s level.
  12. Kitties!!

    No, I have to keep them separate. Darwin lives upstairs and Pascal is downstairs. We have a glass wall and they jump at each other through the glass!
  13. Kitties!!

    I’m not sure if I posted this before or not, but these are the “stud pants” that I have to use on Darwin and Pascal. Having two intact males is not recommended practice unless you have a very large cattery, but I couldn’t pass on the opporunity when I saw Darwin and Curie listed on a classified ads site. https://www.perfettopeterbald.com/product-page/stud-pants They really look like a thong!

    That’s why they were created.

    So? 33 points is hardly going to matter. Besides it's a KR issue, not an XP issue. The wiki is your friend. Look at the very last line under Notes. You should probably read through the whole thing.
