    Well, Vitos was quite happy about it, but I guess that just adds to your point 😛

    Pastor was excited too.

    Ok, so for example, funky bombs will never go down since there are no other funky bombs?

    not quite.. the current older market was split into item-type groupings.

    AccessoryWeapon,
    AccessoryParachute,
    AccessoryShield,
    AccessoryAutoDefense,
    AccessoryBattery

    There’s only 1 parachute, 1 battery-type, and buying any ammount
    of weapons diddn’t drop the shield prices a single cent..

    In the experemental build of the none-mod that i’m testing, it’s set to
    ignore the accessory-type. and adjust all items across the board, within
    the given 1/3 – 3x price limits.
    Actually, i’ve been using it this way for months on the mod-servers,
    and with complete success and very happy players.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to adjust the price based on buying frequency instead of other weapons? Or would that be too hard to implement?

    What im wondering is, is this game a idea of a really old game? Cause i remember playing a game like this on a really old computer and the game was almost the same.. except it was only with like 4 colors or so.. can’t remember it that well!

    anyway.. does anyone know which game i mean?

    From the home page:

    Scorched 3D is a game based loosely (or actually quite heavily now) on the classic DOS game Scorched Earth “The Mother Of All Games”. Scorched 3D adds amongst other new features a 3D island environment and LAN and internet play. Scorched 3D is totally free and is available for both Microsoft Windows and Unix (Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Solaris etc.) operating systems.

    The one you’re talking about, is Tank Wars though, I think.

    no, it should say 84,51%… (based on my definition of a percent, feel free to correct me :P)

    Probabiltiy Rule 1 – Any probability P(A) is a number between 0 and 1.
    That is, 0 < P(A) < 1

    From the wiki:

    In mathematics, a percentage is a way of expressing a number as a fraction of 100 (per cent meaning “per hundred”). It is often denoted using the percent sign, “%”. For example, 45% (read as “forty-five percent”) is equal to 45 / 100, or 0.45.

    However, it’s unclear, whether the value shown is a probability or a percentage. I implied from the “%” character, that it’s a percentage.

    Exactly! Like the one that was just implem… oh wait no that was the black market modelled from the dwindling days of the Soviet Union or something of that sort. 😯 😛

    Nah, there would be no interest then. Plus 2 out of 3 missiles would dud. 😛

    No, wait. There would be only packs of the current number of players, but you’d only get one, along with everyone else. Think of the fun with DH’s!

    I still feel that I can say with relative impunity that the idea is for things to sort themselves out. Kind of like … hmmmm, I know, a free market!

    The prices will fall quickly on the things no one can afford. When that items gets hot again, the price will climb back out of reach and the process repeats.

    You do have a point. However, I strongly feel chutes should be an exception. $30k for 8 is not only outrageous (you don’t really think they should be the second most expensive accessory after DH, do you?), it seriously affects the game balance. They were already expensive before (just have a look at the mods out there), yet everyone was expected to have them by round 2.

    Diggers are just too cheap, even at 300%. Should we completely eliminate maximum prices, then? Or we could reduce fall damage, which actually sounds sensible. But if we do, why the expensive chutes if there’s nothing serious to protect you from?

    I’m all for free market, but the base prices should still be balanced.

    I think the obvious solution would be to lower the base prices for everything that’s expected to be bought much (chutes, batts, missiles, maybe the weaker shields… oh, and my beloved leapies :P).

    Alternatively, it would be fun to have individual prices, to encourage variation in weapons at the individual level, but I guess that’s a bigger request and some wouldn’t even like it.

    Ah, so he WAS using an aimbot… he deserved it then. 😛

    (Seriously. I’ve seen him play in 41.2. Whooping our asses every single time while still whining about how bad he was… even Peanut remarked something along the lines of “man, I wish I could shoot as bad as you”. I’m not going to believe he was a cheater short of a confession and an audit of his machine :P)

    checking for beer in -lfridge… no
    Warning: No beer found in fridge!
    We highly suggest that you rectify this situation immediately.

    Stupid script… the beer was on the table, in front of me 😛
    And it didn’t check for Kenny, either.

    May be beneficial to find out what happened to them as well, if it was a mass boot and how many went (im sure most of that will be on the server logs).

    I got no response whatsoever from the server, so I got bored and quit after about 40-45 secs. By the time I got back, there was noone on the server.

    B: This player had an unexplanable shot that can’t be denied is cheating.

    How exactly do you define a “cheater shot”? Something so accurate that cannot be attributed to luck? I’ve yet to see one of those… I’ve had shots even I was amazed at, but that doesn’t make me a cheater (I think…), and at the same time (same game even) I do some that are off by half the map. So which ones would you use to determine if one of my shots is “inexplainible” that “can’t be denied is cheating”?

    As for the flag, that only means the admins are paying attention. Which is a Good Thing. Just don’t ban anyone without showing the reasons and calming down the other players.

    P.S. I’m not qualified to determine if someone is cheating or not, nor do I accuse or defend anybody, just curious.
