I find it a bit strange that when you become body size 4 you cannot eat grey plants (bodysize 3 plants) any more...that makes the whole feeding process very difficult indeed. :S

This is either a bug or should be explained better:

I attacked another species (grey).

My incompatible food is: Red species, Red plants, green plants, grey plants

Then i got this message: "You hunted for , but you cannot eat GREY food!"

It only says i can't eat red species, not grey species!

Found a new bug:

Code: Select all

You buy 1 skill point, but you have already reached the max of 200
Performing default order: Both skill points and banked turns at max! No order to perform!


So i lost the order...but the problem is that my banked turns was nowhere near maxed out!

Well i got the indiference skill and attacked Allister to test it but when he changed colour i got the following message:

Code: Select all

You hunted for , but you cannot eat GREEN food!


Which is weird because Alister was red before and red is also part of my incompatible food.

Possible bug:

I got eaten in the Everglades game. When I got the message uinviting me to restart, the link wouldn't work.

Here are the messages:

1st message:

Your species is extinct!
Luckily you can continiue the game as a new species.
Click here to start a new species in a random location

When I clicked, here was the reply:
http://www.kaomaris.com/woksp/restart.p ... tSpecies=1
This is not your species!


Rune/Al? Are you aware of any problems?

A suggestion:
I think it would be a good idea to allow non-players to view an outline of the game details, probably the game summary bit and the HiScore List. A summary of the major events would be handy too (such as XXXX killed off Goat Herder's mob of yellow goats, or YYYY died of starvation).

It would be handy for player who have been killed off and are thinking of restarting, and also for visitors or potential players that may be thinking about joining the game.

What do you think?

Hi and thanks for the bug posts! These are excactly the reason I wanted to keep running the game. :)
I am not aware of any problems with the restarting of species, but I will look into the problem. Are you able to create a new species?

We have just started to look at the next version of WOK Species now. Please post any suggestions you have on the boards!
I think we will do the updates in two steps. First we will add some features and fix some bugs. This will become version 0.8. While we are testing this version, we still start working on version 0.9. This will be a major rewrite of the game engine that will make the game less demanding on the server while the code will become easier to maintain. :)

I restarted using my work PC rather tthan home PC. I will send you the details separately.

I couldn't create a new species. It said something about my login or species "already existing".

BTW - who killed my species off - and what reaction did you get from my animals in the first few attacks? My behaviour was set to React.

Indiference

Post by Saladin » Tue Apr 20, 2004 9:33 am

I'm confused now. I bought the skill indiference but i'm clueless to what it's supposed to do. :( I think it's broken...UD must have gotten to it before i did. :roll:

Development on WOK SP is back on track now. Considering that there are many people on each side involved and that the engine needs a sharp trim to make it work for mobiles we might be in for some longer testings.

Right now we stick to do the bugfixings, improve gameplay and re-write large parts of the code. Please bare with us, we look forward to have you all in our next beta.

A little suggestion.

Could the events page be split up in to parts. Something like 500 events per page or so...think the loading time might tick some people off. :)
