PostSubject: Universal Currency   Mon Jul 08, 2013 2:15 am

Hello,

I'd like to see Soul Shards made into a universal currency. I think right now we have far too many currencies on this server that are specific to getting certain things (Pulsing Blood Stones, Soul Shards, Hades Coins, Skulls, Soul Crystals, Old Runic Roaming Gems, Ectoplasm, Platinum, Ears, Crowns, Bloody Cow Heart, Exquisite Cow Heart). I would like to see one of these made into a universal currency with a merchant for exchange. Perhaps something like:

1 PBS = 1000 Soul Shards
1 HC = 1 Soul Shard
1 Pristine Monster Skull = 250 Soul Shards
1 Old Runic Roaming Gem = 200 Soul Shards
1 Glob of Ectoplasm = 400 Soul Shards
1 Bloody Cow Heart = 20 Soul Shards
1 Exquisite Cow Heart = 10000 Soul Shards

I deliberately left out Ears and Crowns because RPs should not be easily gotten through farming.

I also would like to see the weight on Soul Shards removed and allow stacks of 500.

Il make the different tokens weightless and stack higher.

But im not changing to 1 kind of currency. I want people to go to the areas i create to find the currency needed. Not just stand in a random spot in the corner of the world and farm for the best gear

I think that's fair. Perhaps you could make one exception and allow Old Runic Roaming gems to be purchased with Soul Shards - I'd just like to be able to do something with the 600 or so I have in my inventory collecting dust.

You should get another GM in your ranks man lol, I posted an application a while ago and am still available to help with anything you need, will update the server more often and more help is always good...

Not every gm can do what is needed like coding and db stuff.

And giving someone access to those areas is a huge security risk unless you know the person.

Totally understand about the time thing, thanks for considering it.

One thing you could look into is perhaps allowing a future GM/Admin minimal write access to specific tables.  This would allow you to mitigate risk while still allowing someone to help you  Although this would take some time to learn if you don't already know, this is a great resource for MySQL privileges: http:/ /dev.mysql.com /doc/refman/5.5/en/privilege-system.html.

An option for the coding portion is to use a Git repository.  This would allow people to commit changes to your code-base without allowing direct access to the server - you could then reject any suggested commits that would have malicious changes.
