Gardening System Additions and Fixes

NOTE:Because TC1 does not have a daily maintenance cycle, plants will not grow. We ask that you concentrate your testing on the monsters that drop the new seeds!
  • Fixed an issue with the plant gump not displaying potions correctly.
  • Fixed a bug with the plant gump incorrectly showing fungus and disease being present in a pot before the seed is planted
The Cocoa Tree
Posted Image
  • The Cocoa Tree can be grown from Fragrant seeds, which are carried by all the monsters that drop any of the Peculiar Seeds (see below.)
  • It cannot be cross-pollinated
  • It gives up to 8 Cocoa Pulp, which is used in two new cooking recipes (see above.)
  • It also can produce up to 8 Cocoa Tree Seeds
New Decorative Plants
Posted Image
  • There are 15 new decorative plants available, of which the two hedges above are merely examples
  • The new plants grow from Peculiar Seeds, which drop a variety of monsters.However, not all of these monsters drop all of the Peculiar Seed types
    • The new seeds will drop on 3 bipedal creatures that dwell in the Tokuno Islands, on 1 bug-type creature, on 1 creature found in Despise (among other places), on 1 swamp creature, on 1 karma sensitive creature in Ilshenar and last but not least, on 1 creature that lurks in the Twisted Wealds.
  • These plants cannot be cross-pollinated, and do not produce resources at this time

I think having the commodity box be a vet reward is a little cruddy (it'd be like having a salvage bag be a vet reward), but it's a start.

Not sure of the point behind players can no longer summon pets via the pet summoning ball in Ilshenar.

"Players no longer turn grey when they use the spell Polymorph" -- again, not sure why, if theyre engaging in sorcery they should be flagged! lol

"Fixed an issue with players getting stuck in "mounted" mode" -- Is this the Viagra fix? :o

Vet Rewards - no love for 4th or 8th year vets?

Brazier - be kewl if you could hue with one of the dye tubs and it gave off that colored light.

Wall banners - why not just call them tapestries and add more designs? The two shown look like something my grandmother had.

Ethereal Cu Sidhe Mount - why not make it transparent, not just dark colored?

Ankh of Sacrifice - Allowing players to rez at home? Eww... think Yew Moongate Fel... Protect NPC Healer jobs! This is an election year after all!

Can't wait to see the rest of the new plants! Gardeners will be giddy, plus being able to have a hedge as a quasi-fence in the frontyard will be awesome.

Considering the 11th Anniv is just 3 weeks away, maybe they will do it as a live publish or an update with 11th Anniv events/stuff.

Where is the 11th year mount?! :/

All i can say is awesome... Just worried about the gem carts getting duped or similar, so they end up getting 500-1000+ gems per day.

glad they are adding things!

crosses fingers that the commodity deed box and the tree stump do not take 125 lock downs each (like the cat statue) so that people with smaller houses can use them too. But they will most likely consume another 250 lockdowns in your house.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment

Not sure of the point behind players can no longer summon pets via the pet summoning ball in Ilshenar.


Since Ilshenar is a no gate/mark zone, I believe it was never intended to be able to summon pets in Ilshenar. At some point in recent time it broke allowing it to happen, so they are going back to fix it.

Can you give a spoiler alert next time? I can understand posting this information on a time senstive event (an event lasting only days or weeks), but this system is permanent to my knowledge.

This leaves us ALL of the time in the world to discover on our own what drops seeds and what the new plants are ... this is an open request to have those threads marked clearly *SPOILERS* or something to that nature.

Thanks in advance all.

People used to use a polymorph glitch where people would attack the guy but then the guy gets out of polymorph and is blue again, thus the person who attacks flags gray instead lol...there is a real reason why they made the change, in other words;P

The Ankh has a 1 hour cool down, so it won't be all that useful. Better for the stay at home Armageddon dude ;P

Hmm, but what if there are multiple Sac Ankhs in the same house? Having played in one of those house/forts near Yew moongate, running out for the rez, then trying to get back inside frehsly rezzed with 1 hitpoint while dodging ebolts was half the fun.

I'm thinking that the 1 hour cool down time will be the char and not the ankh,or at least thats how i intreprate it,that you can only use an ankh once an hour so multi ankhs in a house wouldn't really give a char unlimiteds rez's
