New statues 💃 💞

 

Sand and marsh tiles need some attention, they do not refresh and most of them are not able to be investigated.

I see no 'get direction' on any of these reports I made.

Since I've shared this elsewhere, for those on the cache hunt:

 

QL of the report and skill have an equal part in determining the number of fragments you get from a cache, and is modified by the 'value' of the deed (how long it was around, how long its been abandoned for). And by ql of the report, I mean the actual ql of the item, so the initial ql of the paper/papyrus you use to create the report.

Nice stuff, will get into a bit more of the arch now :) Meantime, New: Shoulder pads are now dyeable. Is this only going to be for cotton/cloth ones or? I dyed mine which are steel and  no color change so curious.

My collection grows. I have no idea where to put these. Please help me.

 

15 fit across an empty shelf perfectly, so can probably squeeze 60 per shelf

If you're wearing them, take them off and put them back on

I located an abandoned deed. Got the report to show me "get directions". I found the stash and mini token.

Then continued to investigate the area and soon enough I found the same deed again, message said:

Quote

You can see multiple markers of abandoned settlements here. Based on your knowledge of the area and small hints you can find, one of the settlements must have been called Xanadu Skill Resort. You feel confident you know exactly where Xanadu Skill Resort once lay, and complete the location details in the report.

 

But this time the report doesn't give any "directions". The report itself says "Perhaps investigating around the village area some more will provide more location clues."

I assume a person cannot get two of same cache, which is completely reasonable of course. However, I would like the report to give me directions to that deed nonetheless.

Could this be done/added somehow?

 

Or does it mean I need to investigate more, and the "you know exactly" message above in the quotes is not the final part?

You can get the same directions multiple times, I have 3 of the same deed in 1 hour at the same location - while looking for the other deed directions which is at the same spot (the first deed I've ever been a citizen of).

It seems also, that if there are multiple deeds, one is found much easier than the other - this time it was the one that existed first.

I had 3 full reports and minitokens, but did not complete the other report during the same time (I'm happy to share deed names and location if devs want to check something - even a minitoken of the deed I found repeatedly is planted there).

@BuddaI noticed my old archaeology book was only 14ql, so I imp'd it up to 40ql and filled it with blank pages, but after it was up to 12 reports and a stack of blank pages, it would no longer add new reports, removed blank reports did not solve the problem, removing most of the named reports allowed addition of new village reports.

 

Is this due to my journal being created before the patch and should I be making a new one?

 

Also what skill do you need to get reports filled in completely, I have just under 72 archaeology and having no luck.

 

Bah, even after cleaning out most of the reports, still not getting some deeds added:

edit to strike out the parts that were not broken, did not realize you would see info on deeds not even nearby

I learned something not to do again 😕

 

If you have two started rare groups of a statue and you decide to add them together to get one finished rare statue and still have a group of unfinished rare pieces left, don't do it. One loses it's rarity luckily for me it was the unfinished group not the finished statue 😕

 

If I had only waited to find one more piece I would still have two rare statues 😕 *looks around lol what?

[10:27:05] You cannot put the small Starlight Haven token there, that would mean too many items on the empty low bookshelf. 🙄

 

More, we need more items allowed per bookshelf 😋 it allows eleven items, there are six shelves so if we could place at least three per shelf that would work :wub:
