Too many free roaming monsters

Post by Len » Tue Sep 25, 2007 6:21 am

Am I the only one that thinks some (not all) monsters such as maggots should not roam around and stick close to parts of the maps custom made for them.

Example:

I'm planning on implementing simplified modelling of ecological nichés and hence a simplified dynamical ecosystem on the new server eventually.

As a sidenote those ribs seem to have major issues with perspective, shading and outlining at the moment.
This message used to be meaningful.

Hehe I didn't make the ribs and nice to hear something like this is going to be implemented so time down the road.

i made those ribs, but something happened to the transparency...

Rotonen: also if the perspective is off, can you suggest how to fix it?

It is possible with eAthena (and already with TMWServ) to spawn monsters only in a limited area of the map. But nothing prevents the monsters from wandering out of this area.

On the new server the monster AI could be used to keep the monsters in a specific area.

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.
