#964252 Development Update

Posted by TreeFrog on 10 June 2016 - 16:07

I'm in no way shocked by this announcement, yet my heart did sink a bit when i read it. For those that complain that it should have been announced earlier, you have to take into account that this was truly HCS's baby. This project has been in development for at least 8 years that im aware of. Its not easy to admit failure in light of the countless hours devoted to it. Though i have been absent from the game for about a year now I always check the forums and its been a slow decline for a long time, with less frequent updates, and little content in those updates.


I'm sorry for those that were just getting into the game. I remember well when I first started and at that beginning you see the potential of the game, but as you go on you start to notice the monotony of the quest structure, the various fluff added to distract from a lack of substance, the complete lack of a trading economy, no ingame push to build a community (after all even if a game is crap, people will log on if there friends are there), and various other little things that have already been mentioned. You take all this into account and you look at what HCS is doing to ameliorate the situation. You'll see almost nothing is being done, the biggest complaints more often than not go completely unacknowledged, as if the problem will go away if they ignore it long enough. Well, closing their eyes and ears and going 'lalalalala' has got them to this point, and i noticed it a year ago and its why I stopped. I'm sad at the lost potential, but this is beyond overdue.


Learn from your mistakes and try again.


Edit: TL;DR - I called it.

#963716 Anyone here?

Posted by TreeFrog on 28 May 2016 - 16:24

Oh no, got no clue who you are. Definitely dont remember wishing i was as good as you, or spending hours trying to recreate your style. Sorry pal, just not ringing any bells. Who were you again? HaloArtist? or snuglebug? or maybe Grimmhawk? LichBlader? Look at me name dropping, im showing my age here lol. I would be absolutely shocked if anyone else remembers those people.


And just to show off:











and those are just the ones off the top of my head. My memory is pretty good despite years of abusing it with the weeds.

Which is most of the time, since I've picked up my orders, then been told the next day that they're ready for pickup on multiple occasions :P

All proceeding quotes by Lao Tzu author of Tao Te Ching


“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”


“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”


“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.”


“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.”


“To know that you do not know is the best.
To think you know when you do not is a disease.
Recognizing this disease as a disease is to be free of it.”


Men are born soft and supple; dead they are stiff and hard. Plants are born tender and pliant; dead, they are brittle and dry. Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible is a disciple of death. Whoever is soft and yielding is a disciple of life. The hard and stiff will be broken. The soft and supple will prevail.”

#886132 Please make more girly Vanity :D

Posted by TreeFrog on 18 August 2014 - 04:26

I've suggested Tattoo vanity but I think it was Tornik or possibly Xero that mentioned its gonna be super hard. He had an explanation but it was full of technical jargon that i am not familiar with nor could I remember it. I'm all for the rest of it though, but not just girly vanity. We need more vanity all around. People like to feel unique and vanity is how you do that.

#886046 make it so you cant see friends list or who logs in when at trappers atol.

You are becoming belligerent perhaps you should put the internet away for the day? I mean you are talking about virtual fighting as baby killing. Its a gross exaggeration and denotes some mental instability, much like the reporters on Fox News. Your complete state of denial makes a rational discussion with you impossible and I think you should remove yourself until you've calmed down.

#885110 Fishing Simple Menu Option

Posted by TreeFrog on 14 August 2014 - 00:04

If you read the description of simple menus it states that it will automatically perform the action in a menu with only one option. Because of the option to add bait when you are fishing, the simple menus does not apply as there are 2 options in that menu.
