Bank and COD usability increase

Recommended Posts

As it stands, the event notifications when someone pays you something are completely useless:


 


 


Example:


 


you sell 10 items by COD then you receive this message - [23:44:41] Your available money in the bank is now *******************.


 


Now this message is completely useless because it implies that


 


( a ) you know exactly how much you had before in the bank


( b ) you know who picked what up and


( c ) how much they paid for.


 


The only good message is that it tells you your current balance.


 


Proposed changes:


 


1. One additional line in your event log, something like this:


 


[23:44:41] [Nickname] has paid you [xx gold,] [xx silver,] [xx copper and] [xx iron] for retrieving [item name (enchants)] from the spirits.


[23:44:41] Your available money in the bank is now ********************.

 

2. And if you were offline, next time you log in you should get a notification like:

[23:44:41] [Nickname] has received [item name (enchants)] from the spirits.                (thx Pandalet)

 

3. Mailing log:                   (thx Niki, Stormblade & Kadore)

By right-clicking the mailbox there should be an option called 'Mailing History', much like 'Settlement History' where you can see the latest x amount of mails you sent and their status:

 

[time][date] You have sent [item name (enchants)] to [nickname] [(if COD) for [xx gold,] [xx silver,] [xx copper and] [xx iron].]

 

Then change the same line accordingly:

 

[time][date] [Nickname] has paid you [xx gold,] [xx silver,] [xx copper and] [xx iron] for retrieving [item name (enchants)] from the spirits.

or for non-COD:

[time][date] [Nickname] has retrieved [item name (enchants)] from the spirits.

or for send back:

[time][date] [Nickname] has sent back [item name (enchants)].

or for 2 weeks expiration on same server:

[time][date] [Nickname] did not pick up [item name (enchants)] so the spirits returned it to you.

 

And a separate log entry (not change the same line) upon item destruction:

[time][date] The spirits destroy [item name (enchants)] [because you did not pick it up in time] (or) [because it interferes with their inter island returns policy policy]


 

 

Why add the enchants you might ask? Simple: easy log tracking and troubleshooting by players as well as GMs if something goes wrong.

If possible, it would be nice to get the 'xxx accepted y' messages when you next log in, if you were logged out when it happened.

Much like a token has the history, why not have the history of the last 20 or so transactions by mail

 

You received suchandsuch from soandso C.O.D and withdrew Amount of Money from bank.

SoandSo received your mail C.O.D paying 2s 20c for item XYZ.

 

That would be nice as well

To expand on this, what if you had a tab on the mailbox that listed the last 20 mailed items by status, recieved, pending pickup ( whatever wording you like ) and drop off the list as more or added or a set period of time.

With the amount of trade conducted through the mail system, it makes sense to have some sort of system in place for players to know all of this information. And with the recent improvements to the mail system, this is the logical next step.
