While I was running the code to adjust values and give refunds for the body armor change, I tried to save myself some time and told it to just adjust all armor that needed it.

Tattoos aren't designed to be treated like other armor.

So the unintended side effect was that a few hundred tattoos got set to near-zero and their owners got a few $million. I realized the problem when the script tried to set a tattoo lvl to a negative number and quit.

Fortunately in case I ever did something like this the script logs every change it makes. So I was able to set everything back the way it was, after a little fun with "natural join" being retarded.

We're back to normal now. Or very very close. :)

Thank you Jon

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:28 PM EDT

Ah, okay. Thanks for clearing that up. :)

ScY March 14 2009 8:28 PM EDT

Thanks for the explanation

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 14 2009 8:29 PM EDT

I'm assuming the money got reset also.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:29 PM EDT

Does everyone get to keep their money, and get the tats back to normal, or do they lose their money?

ScY March 14 2009 8:43 PM EDT

Maybe we could have the option.... ;O

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 14 2009 8:46 PM EDT

it gave me 40m for Steeds... it wasn't exactly a good deal

Picasso March 14 2009 8:50 PM EDT

I wonder how it calculated how much to give... cause I got over 45Mil for a tat under 7Mil in level, way less than Steeds...

Hit Update Stats on yourself if you don't see the money yet. Really, it's there.


where is this button found?

AdminNightStrike March 14 2009 8:54 PM EDT

It's on your character view page. However, it's easier to just train nothing.

Flamey March 14 2009 8:54 PM EDT

That may be an old message, just go to your equip page.

You need to read the post that I CM'd and that was pasted in the other thread, in change log.

kevlar March 15 2009 2:37 AM EDT

OOps we're in that thread... well basically it was a mistake and money was taken back and tat's remained the same. It only happened to about 100 people.
