Thanks for your comments. As far as the menu in the lower right, I only suggested "skill" to illustrate the problem. The word "actions" is used twice on the same menu. I would like to see another appropriate word choosen, along with the "minor" menu reorganization I proposed.

The problem is that many new players buy upgrades without knowing how to use it, just because it's cheaper than buying an action. But buying an upgrade doesn't update your actions automatically, you have to edit actions yourself to include the new upgrade. A pop-up should explain that fact when someone is about to buy an upgrade.

You can buy the magic upgrade, then you can purchase the whole spell for the same thing.

Exactly!

If you buy the stanza only, you do it from a tab called "Upgrades". You can see in the buy window that you are only getting a stanza. You can see in the "Actions" tab that you are getting some credits along with the stanza. Further, the sage tells you during mission 3 or 4 that you should tinker with the stanza system.

My 2 dappers is that Silan works excellently well, in that it weeds out people who don't pay attention.

You most certainly can buy the same spell twice!

I made a new Silan toon, leveled to 10 in magic.

Buying Heal Life 1 (stanza+range credit 2+sap credit 3) costs 23 skill points. Sap Gift and Stamina Gift cost 23 points too, but they use range credit 2; after you buy Heal Life, their cost goes down to 20. They still show that credit in their composition, but you already have it, and you are not paying for it.

Further, I buy Heal Life 2 (stanza+range credit 3+sap credit 7+time credit 2), costing 16 SP. Acid Damage 2 costs 16 SP before I buy Heal Life 2, and costs 7 skill points after that, to accurately reflect that I have acquired a number of the component credits.

You never pay for the same thing twice, although that thing might still be listed on the action and you seem to "buy" it. Again, people who don't read or pay attention, etc..

Kalean -- If you look at the Upgrade the description says exactly that.

everytime i get a new skill, craft or otherwise i find it filling empty slots in my hotbar, i dont' want this by default, i want to fill them myself, that might be fine for the first "page" to help new players in silan, but it shouldn't fill empty slots in "hidden" pages with 5 different jewel craft Q's (like when i finally got tryker plans, it filled almost an entire page with q10, q20, q30, all the way to q160, that's 16 slots that i didn't need filled. please look into this and correct it, surely there's no point in this.

wow just read the page back log, talk about "didn't pay attention in silan" or "i only did the fight missions in silan" issue, you shouldn't worry as much about ppl that don't do all of silan, they arn't as likely to stick with the game on the ML anyway, to be honest, i think you should have to do silan all the way through before you can leave, i know there are some that will say that's stupid for high lvl players that start over or create a new toon in a new slot or even make an alt, but let's face it (i know this is a fact i've done it) you can do silan from start to finish in less then 48 hours if you know about playing on the ml well, and why not kick back with the noob's that never have played and guide them while you make that new toon, not to mention this would cut down on alt's on the ML because let's face it, ML players don't like to do stuff like the silan missions, then they won't make alt's or bother to play anything but the mainland toon they already have, and honestly that's part of what hurts ryzom, because so many new players have to have so much help on the mainland learning the things they should have learned in silan, because you can choose with no warning that says "you will not be given this in-depth training on the ml at your own pace as you please" sure there are those of us that will help these toons to learn the things they missed in silan, but that's on our time, not theirs, where as the NPC's are ready and waiting for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. (and just a note i've ran toons thought all of silan several times and then deleted them just to do it again to find out how long it takes, and that's not a solid 48 hours in real life, it's about 20 hours in real life for the experienced player.)

just my 2 dappers again.

No, the description doesn't explain that you have to edit actions yourself in order to use the upgrade. It just says the upgrade is a brick, and let's be honest that is not clear at all for someone who doesn't know the game. This system is very different from other games, this is normal that new players get confused.
I was thinking about a pop-up with more details about how to edit actions.There is a pop up like this that appear during missions, it should appear when someone buy an upgrade for the firs time.

as other's as well as myself have said, if they do all of the missions in silan and read what the npc's tell them, it's all explained there how to edit and such, however, i do understand now what your saying, and as a safeguard for players that do not complete all of silan i could see where a pop-up would help them to understand how to use the upgrade and what is required, but i can also see how another pop up could be an issue with players such as ourselves, given that we know how to do the edit and balance a stanza manually on our own, for those of us, we might get a little frustrated if the pop up required any interactions from the player, like clicking "ok" to remove the pop up to ensure it was read, which rolls right back around to paying attention in silan and doing everything there to learn it in the "training" sandbox. so it seams as i type this it's still about learning the game at the start of it, in silan, where these things are all explained by an NPC. note my quote about the cookie, if they don't read and do in silan, they are going to find that insted of a slap, it will be an all out beating.

On my previous post #69, forget what i said about 'Free look,' i found i use it pretty frequently, so dont get rid of it, lol. But i still stand by the scroll down bar on macros that get big, like a boss macro, your work around didnt work Bittty, sorry, i have a mac and am having problems finding files let alone doing something with a text editor or termial. I am not a programmer, :-). plus, i also want scaleable craft window and even a scaleable radar would be cool

After countless persons attempting to communicate with Chiang using English Uni (saying their name etc), maybe it's time to make that chat by default attached to the other chat windows? As opposed to standing in the middle of the screen, as it is now.

What about binding "Quartering" and "Take All" to a single key? We can press space-bar to target the next mob, maybe we could have another key that would loot and take everything that would fit in our pack automatically.

Sieges -- the fact that we have to click and collect is a design feature, not a bug. It helps reduce botting.

botting, with such a small player base (vs WoW and other mmo's) i don't think is really a major issue, furthermore, you could call an alt a bot, though you have to input the commands to that alt, where a bot is programed to do a set action.

i think botting would be an issue if this WAS NOT a sandbox game, and honestly, i can't see how "player a" using a bot would hurt "player b" since i've never seen or known of a pvp bot.

but this is just my random thoughts here :)

No need to make it easier, though :) Playing in a game where power-levellers just have their computer scripts level for them would not be fun. It's (supposed to be) a Massive Multiplayer game, not a massive multi-script game ;)

Just add more roaming mobs that are agro and hard and ppl won't be able to bot or camp

Adaptation from "I have a dream" by "Martin Luther King"
I have a dream that one day this world will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all homin are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the hills of Fairhaven the sons of former homins left behind and the sons of former homins that were lucky enough to be rescued will be able to sit down together at a campfire of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the Matis, a state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my 64 little guildies will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin or the religion they follow but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.
