Topic: Kongregate / If you could name any room on Kongregate...

Whenever I’m trying to come up with some great names for things, I tend to turn to Culture Ship Names for ideas. From the aforementioned list, I’d probably choose between…
Liveware Problem

Just Passing Through
and Soulhaven
oh and Suspiciously Kindly Yet Not Entirely Threatening
because acronyms are fun :D

Agreed I wouldn’t want to rebeat the game just for badges :S

You’ve never gotten badges for games that you already fulfilled the requirement for before the badges came out without replaying the game?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Remnants of Skystone] Nidaria eco-crisis!

We can pretty much agree that the smelting, rolling, and eventual selling of ores is the most effective way to accumulate spores right? With the possibility of 13 kills getting at least 100 spores if they are all ore related. (10 common ore types, 3 firewood) Meanwhile 13 kills at an average of 2 spores per kill is a mere 26 spores.

Inside the secret room of the highlands, there is a chest with 20 gold bars, 10 silver bars, and 100 free brass. To earn this much normally in the game, you would need a minimum of at least 390 kills getting particularly lucky with the gold drops. (200 gold ore, 100 silver ore, 30 firewood) These can then be traded for 5000 spores after rolling all the bars.

Now let’s look at the purchasing power of these spores. With 5000 spores, you can buy 10 of the 16 individual billiard balls. (12 if you decide to spend brass)

Not looking like too sweet of a chest now.
Now let’s really put this into perspective. A Pool Table can be purchased for N/A Spores, 700 Brass.

……what the hell?

Maybe billiard balls aren’t the best things to buy. Let’s look at some seats, everyone needs seats. Couches are practically a must these days. For 5000 spores we can buy: 1 chair, 1 loveseat OR 1 couch, with 1000 spores left over.
Not that much bang for the buck.

Let’s look at tables instead then, two designer square tables, or, one wide table, or one long table.

You guys seriously consider this to be worthy of a treasure chest hidden away ages ago?

Perhaps we’d be better off shopping for clothes at Lana’s. It’s been pretty long since I got some new bottoms, let’s see what’s for sale for spores.
Sporemart pants- 1680 spores, Sporemart skirts- 1675 spores.
That’s all folks
There are 11 pages of pants for sale from Lana, and these are the Only pants I can buy!
Okay, I’m not being fair, this was about the price of items, not their availability.

So, we can, at the very least, buy bottoms. so with 3320 spores left, I think a new top would go well with these new bottoms. Of the Tops available: Ringer- 3500, Sash- 4000, Stripe Tee- 6000, Ninja- 7200, Sporemart- 400
With the spores we have left, we can buy a spanking new Sporemart tee.

But really, after scrolling through so many pages of cool looking clothes, they just don’t look appealing anymore. Heck, even the drastically smaller selection of starter outfits look better than Sporemart.

But hey, don’t feel down yet, this may not seem like very much now, but you’re just a minimum of 325 kills(a little more than 5 runs of west ends) away from earning enough to make this decision again. Assuming of course that you get all gold ore and firewood, at a ratio of 10:3

Not to worry though, for every gold ore that doesn’t drop in favor of spores, you’ll only need about 9 more kills with the same result before you’ve earned as much, and for every gold ore that doesn’t drop in favor of food or compost, just add 1 more to the number of kills you need.

But the second best outcome you can get is another kind of ore, at which point you’ll only need one more ore of the same kind to break even to one gold ore(with the every ten ores requiring another 3 more kills for firewood). Just try not to think about how much more common spores, food/compost, and other ores are in relation to gold ore while you’re out searching.

Gooood hunting! :D

Means they’re afk.

Mmmmh, the afk feature looks really messy and unattractive. ._. Could they not just be sent to the bottom of the chat and made grey? I don’t like how they all mix up with the black names but not in order ;<

Edit: or make their names a different colour! Grey looks like they’ve been silenced (as in the old chat).

Agreed.. Came into chat wondering why there were like 8 people silenced. Then I saw that I got greyed out but was still able to chat. Maybe we could have a little “change status” command in the chat room, that way we can actually say if we’re afk or playing a game or busy or available. That way, people won’t get confused with the greying out.

having different status messages would get cluttering, but having a bunch of color changes would get confusing, why not just have the status show up only if you scroll over their name, it could go right above what the person is playing. I’d also prefer being able to turn on and off the AFK function through a command like /afk, so that I don’t get greyed out unintentionally and people don’t address

heh heh good job 911, but i’m still busy gaming, instead of using transparency for saber’s avvy, just delete each layer after it’s used.

full size of badge templete, 44×44, area of the image inside, 36×36, kongregate resize 40×40, so any images made with the template are shrunk by 4 pixels, i’m not changing the area of it because it’s the same area used for normal badges, and it would probably screw around with the pixel shading
