Coin in loot

Post by dawei » 27 Jul 2009, 23:19

Hi

I was playing one of the other servers today - The Alternate World - and noticed sometimes the monsters dropped coin.

I'm interested if this is something that TMW had in the past, plans for the future, and if the script/code for coins in loot is available.

Specifically, I wonder if on some low probability loot a 'Jackpot' loot might occur.

Hi,

The TAW data git repository is located at http://gitorious.org/~madcamel/tmw-eath ... rnateworld and the specific commit for money drops is http://gitorious.org/~madcamel/tmw-eath ... 085a36eb06

I'm unsure if TMW will adopt or adapt any of my ideas or code, that's entirely up to the TMW devs :)

All I really did was hijack the monster points routine. I doubt I'll add a jackpot as it would make the economics too unpredictable and increase the gap between new players and long-time players who have simply obscene amounts of money. I'd like to find more money sinks for high-level players in fact..

I don't think it's such a good idea, atleast right now. There's already too much money in game.
