  1. So the old timer code for mining had a minimum timer of 4.5s before bonuses are applied, with an absolute minimum of 2.5s. With the change I made it so your base timer is calculated based on your skill/ql and bonuses, then that is added onto the base 2.5s time (so there is no 2s buffer that bonuses take out of). What you're seeing here is the diminishing returns you get at these very high skill and ql levels. With 99.999 skill and a 95ql pickaxe (no enchants or anything), your timer would be about 3.06s, and swapping that for a 97ql pickaxe the timer would go down to 2.83s (due to how ql comes into play when getting skill for these checks). Removing the base 2.5s timer we get 0.56s and 0.33s to work with on the bonuses. 100 WoA or BotD would make the biggest difference here, cutting those down to 0.28s and 0.165s, but other bonuses like runes and rarity only do about 10% each, which isn't much when you're getting this low. We could change this back to the minimum no-bonus timer is 4.5s to give the bonuses more to work with, but I think it is a more fair system like this - where bonuses matter more for those that haven't maxed out their skill or item QLs. Edit: Some more numbers now that I'm looking at it - previously if the average of your skill + pickaxe ql was over 93.3, you were wasting your time as it would not lower the timer any further. Now over that mark you'll still see timer reductions without having to use any bonuses.

  3. Then everything is working as intended.
  4. No, 10% less on the speed penalty compared to normal material.
  5. Just wrong reward text, it should say 10 per kill.
  6. It was meant to be a 10% modifier on the penalty, not an overall 10% bonus - patch notes were wrong on that. Will correct it to be 10% instead of *0.9 though.
  7. Thanks, will double check it.
  8. Ah nevermind, found the issue. The % calculation just doesn't take into account the new influence code - will be fixed for next update.
  9. Post update was different to post hotfix? You're sure about that?
  10. Thanks I'll look into it.
  11. Sorry that nothing seems to be good enough for you Jake. Missions and mission rewards will be tweaked over the next few weeks as we go and fixing things like this that come up- unfortunately not everything can be tested for every scenario leading into a large update like this, especially a mission system with so many possible variations. I suggest in the future if you have a bug or suggestion to report, keep it to the proper section and with civility. This type of post helps nobody.
  12. Whoops forgot about chickens.
  13. You're overestimating the bonus they get and throwing random numbers about - they won't snowball anywhere near this fast, if at all. I'll be monitoring how things go between scenarios and will tweak things if needed well before they get to that point. Another hotfix will be out today with some changes for creature movement to get them out of walls.
  14. Re: creatures poking through fences/walls:
  15. As Alectrys has said, please keep this thread to the point on what issues you're seeing in game, not your opinions on whether it should be live or not. Regarding penned creatures fleeing from you, if the creature is bred, branded or cared for and is inside a deed, it should not react to players (or other creatures) moving around. If your creatures are directly responding to your movement (that is moving away from you when you get close every single time) and they are bred/branded/cared for and on deed, please let me know. As for creatures poking through walls, yes I know it is an annoying thing and I've been working on it to try and sort it out. There were some changes with the update to try and address this, but clearly didn't work - so I'll continue to work on them until they don't like to shove their heads through solid stone. Expect more updates to address this soon. In the mean time know that they won't escape the pens at all, even if they look like they're well on their way.
