Pre Announcement of Maintenance incoming on 21.10.
« on: October 19, 2018, 21:43 »
This is a pre-announcement of a coming update. Since it will heavily affect item sorting in bases tents we want to inform you before it is happening.

CHANGES:
  • Stackable items in bases/tents will be stacked
  • Several "junk items" will be deleted and reward according to ceratin % of item value will be payd

DESCRIPTION:

Basically this update intents to free up some server memory usage. At the moment the server has a heavy memory load and crashes approximately every 2-3 days. Not the only reason but one of them is the big amount of items.

We target two things. Deleting unused items and clean up item stacks in bases/tents.

Deleting junk items

Below is a list of items, which will be deleted in everyone's base(s) and/or tent(s). Since some of these items are used to trade with npc traders we decided to pay a certain amount of caps for each item deleted. As I'm writing this, the payment amount is based on the base value of the item itself but this might change till the update comes into effect.

List of items which will be deleted:
  • Booze, Gamma Gulp Beer, Beer, Roentgen Rum
  • NCR Pass
  • Psychic Nullifier/Neural Interface
  • Red/Green/Blue Condom
  • Dice/Loaded Dice
  • Empty Bottle
  • Box Of Noodles/Instant Dinner
  • BoS Dogtags/BoS Holodisk
  • Heart Pills
  • Radscorpion tail
  • Electronic/Mechanical Pre war parts
  • Ghtang room key
  • V13 Canteen
  • Field Switch
  • Salvator case
  • Zip Gun/Pipe Rifle
  • Plant Spike
  • Empty hypos
  • Geiger Counter
  • Key Ring
  • Meat Jerky
  • Lighter
  • Oil Can
  • Water Flask/Vics Water Flask
  • Cosmetic Case
  • Gold Locket/Gold Watch/Cornelius Watch/Necklace
  • All sorts of brains (who needs them anyway? :)) )
  • Wrench
  • Eye/Dixon Eye
  • Tanglers Hand
  • Empty Jet Canister
  • Bio Gel
  • RadX/RadAway/Psycho/Buffout/Frag Grenade Blueprints
  • Red/Blue/Yellow Pass Key
    Note: These are NOT THE GLOW KEYCARDS
  • Red & Yellow Glow Keycard
    Note: Glow cards will be refunded according to the price you would get if sold to BoS guy.
  • Chemistry Journal
  • Fuzzy Painting
  • Gold Tooth
  • Medical Supplies
  • Machined High Grade Steel
  • Spectacles
  • Mirror Shades
  • Toxic Gecko Pelt
  • Iguana Stick/Meat on Stick

The reward payment in the form of caps will be deposit in the first container (locker/chest etc..) found on the map.

Stacking items

Some bases are a mess, items lying around everywhere without any order. Others are ordered in an almost autistic way. The main problem is the same. Ground items eat memory and this sums up by the sheer amount of items on the server at the moment. We know that some players won't like that change, since many order their stuff in a way they can for example quick access drugs & ammunition for pvp but we figured it's a small price to pay for the server becomes more stable.

Affected are only stackable items. So for all hoarders out there, you can still enjoy some certain amount of chaos in your base(s)/tent(s) since none stackable items like most weapons and armors won't be moved.

The stacked items will all be moved to the first container found on the map of a base and into the tent chest or crate of a tent. There will be some flare indicating which one it is.

The update will happen this Sunday noon/afternoon. There will be a server maintenance and stuff will be stacked/deleted. If you plan to save some of the junk items listed above you have to be outside of any base or tent. Meaning you need to create a temporary location or take some mule on world map for example. Car trunks will be affected also!

I think at first you should delete all implants that Wesan drop while was drunked(very old affair, but still users use these implants) and flares on Sofehard's Younktown shopkeeper(user promoted with flares by devs) after that You can try some big changes :)

What about shopkeepers?

And the second question - what about the items in containers? I ask for it, because you didn't clearly explain - you did about items on the ground.
I will rape your bases. And butts.

R.I.P In game economy. This will cause a shitload of money to be printed into system. Hold up with selling anything for next few days. If everyone is millionere then price of items will go up massively. People never thrown anything away while farming. What they can't use they just stock up on their bases. Being a cleptomaniac is first rule of Fallout wasteland since you never know when new collector quest shows up and gives meaning for otherwise useless item.

If you are refunding with base value as indicator and gives up 100% of caps it will be a disaster. Thing with base value and trading was that there was a hard cap of cash being spawned every hour in various vendors. Consider maybe some other form of refund like i dunno Entry Tickets for Hinkley or something. This refund will hugely loosen the gap between old dinorsaurs with bazillion of junk items and fresh players... there are some fresh players in there right?

Wait for this change to go online. Don't sell anything before that. Implants, Tier 4 and other stuff will suddenly be worth much more.
Xsarqopedia has been fully replaced with Official Wiki. You can expect the newest updates to be added on official wiki just like at old times.

exactly what i thought when i first read news.

People playing /"grinding" more years will be more richer than less playing/new players. As i start playing only last month i can see that grind behind and dependent on clan donation because TC today is expensive. And i playing quite cheap RL character. :o

Most people and players cannot handle their own economy. Amount caps not affecting that, because sooner or later they found themself for same situation. Once I donated 30kk caps for faction and few months later there was no caps left. Some players have grinded years (0-4y), but I see that almost none has any spare caps.
