Underocean Oceanlife Week!

From Vryce,

I am trying to track down a bug in the programming that creates the underocean world around you. It is stopping me from turning on underocean trading and other underocean features. I inserted dozens of logs and traps into the code and now I need people in the underocean.


Underocean trading is open this week.

This means the underocean is 'tamed' by being artificially owned by test town 61 so that bottom feeders will not be infesting the bottom of the ocean.

Normally trading from the land to the underocean or reverse gains you twice the returns. This is turned off for this week as the DM will not be sending out underocean mobfactions to slow you down.

That being said this week we will begin to test some new underocean mobfactions:

  • Faecudas
  • Baby Faeclams
  • Baby Faezillas
  • Sea Piranha
This will not happen during your traderuns. It will be separate tests by volunteers.

Also since I need people in the underocean ...


HELP OCEANLIFE explains this feature, HELP UNDEROCEAN is also needed.
  • SHARKS seem to have a lot of gold normally, but now 5 times as much!
  • Killing anything 10 feet or longer gets you a special medal.
  • Setting a record this week, solo or formed, gets you a medal.
  • Killing 2,000 feet of underocean lifeforms this week gets you a special medal, and rare collectible action figure!
  • SCORE shows your total feet of underocean oceanlife killed this week.
  • GAMEINFO shows the leaders so far this week in total feet killed.
  • The top 20 players listed in GAMEINFO Wednesday morning at 6am will each be awarded a special medal.
  • Remember GAMEINFO OCEANRECORDS 'GA O' shows the overall record holders.
  • Also note that there is a separate record holder medal for each of the 22 lifeform types.
Thank you for helping me stress test the underocean. It will make my week to squash this bug, which has to do with the way we make the underocean around you, internally recycling rooms of memory, while saving important persistent data. It is a type of bug that is hard to reproduce under normal test conditions.
