Hey, since it *is* changemonth (in General)

How hard would it be to make a warning come up when you're running short on ammo? Just wondered - and I know this is a laziness thing - but it'd be useful for people who rely on Ranged combat to win battles.

Just something like when you drop down to <100 ammo, 'WARNING: YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF AMMO!' appears somewhere on the fight results page.


Another "it'd just be nice" suggestion. ^_^

I'm with you 100% OBBQ.

It is a laziness thing.

I don't want this feature added. I only get a result against edyit when he forgets to equip his ammo :)
I also can't imagine Robin Hood getting a pop-up just before he gets it on with the Sheriff of Nottingham. :p

Adminedyit December 3 2006 11:37 AM EST

You always get a result G_Beee. It's only a good result for you when I'm out of ammo :-)

AdminNightStrike December 3 2006 12:56 PM EST

That'd be something easily added to grease monkey.

QBOddBird December 3 2006 1:30 PM EST

Well, if we want the lazy ideas in one thread....

Play by Play On/Only on Lose/Off in the sidebar

Easier access to your own user page

WA on the Home page


Nightstrike: I can't use 'Fexy's greasemonkey script. Don't ask why, I don't know and neither does he. It just fails miserably on my computer.

RedWolf December 3 2006 3:36 PM EST

Easier access to your own user page, yes. I second that ;-)

Adminedyit December 3 2006 3:47 PM EST

well since we're going on the laziness thing can i get it so i can add more than 7 x's at a time to a weapon in the blacksmith. please.

Yukk December 3 2006 4:43 PM EST

I don't like the increase at BS idea. You're more likely to lock
up the BS for ages that way so anyone else who wants an
upgrade has to wait for an hour or something. Sure, you can
do that now by upgrading multiple items at once, but most
people don't.

I do second the easier access to my character/transfers.
It took me a long time to even find these. I don't suppose
it's easier for other newbies.

Adminedyit December 3 2006 4:48 PM EST

sorry i meant for weapon upgrades yukk.

Miandrital December 3 2006 4:58 PM EST

I agree with the weapon blacksmith thing. I also think that any weapon should be able to be upgraded in the BS. At least for the x if not the +.

I also think a WA counter on the front page would be awesome. It would certainly help tanks figure out where they can keep their weapons.

Yukk December 3 2006 5:00 PM EST

Well, it's not to hard to do it a couple of times.

Thinking on ammo, though, it might be nice to be able to
choose ammo from your stores by fight without having to go back "home".
i.e. Oh, this team's big tank needs my +10 slayers but the next team has a nasty FF so out with my last few seekers.

I raised easier access to your user page for months. Verifex's script lets you short cut to it in the left hand frame, which is cool. Unless you don't have Grease Monkey.

Lazylinks Please!

This warning would show up for those 1 or 2 shot bundles you don't want unequipped for space saving reasons. Eye burning caps between 25-100 instead.

Adminedyit December 3 2006 7:17 PM EST

"Well, it's not to hard to do it a couple of times."

Yukk do you know how long it takes to put 8m into a weapon 7 x's at a time? Anything else in the Blacksmith is fine as is but the instant upgrades should IMO be so that if you can afford you can do it.

Miandrital December 3 2006 7:19 PM EST

Maybe we should lobby Verifex to add an auto BS feature, where we just select the desired X, and the script keeps doing 7x's at a time until it gets to the desired amount.

QBOddBird December 3 2006 8:44 PM EST

Hmph. Not until you lobby him into making his script work for me! ~_^

On a related subject how about something to stop you from using your "away" ammo I forget all the time since the post-it notes stopped working on F.F. 2

TheHatchetman December 3 2006 11:29 PM EST

Your away ammo should be penalized in some way... consider your forgetfullness a useful (and extremely mild) way of doing this

TheHatchetman December 3 2006 11:54 PM EST

and for the record, i use 'away' ammo, myself. I sometimes waste it. I look at this as my penalty, and hope it stays at that. *whispers* The benefits still far outweigh the risk

RaptorX December 4 2006 12:07 AM EST

I have wondered if a weapons queue would be nice.. (since I may run out if I am away from my computer). You could add bundles of arrows into it in some kind of order of usage, or better yet let the arrows remember preferences of who you want to use them against.. , but I guess I am just dreaming. :) sigh -- It was a nice dream. A 'You are running out if arrows' "idiot light" would be helpful when I am burning BA though. mages wouldn't understand. :P
