Falling Outside The Normal Moral Constraints, posted on Wed Sep 28 17:31:24 2022

If you've been having trouble with the Timbered achievement due to being too good at dodging, you will now find that increasing your burden above 50% will help. Relatedly, if you're planning to hunt trees in the Ramtops and you prefer not to get squashed, decreasing your burden below 50% is now recommended. (The situation for people whose burden is exactly 50% is left as an exercise for those who enjoy finding things out.)

Several things to report from last weekend's craft-themed Bugfix Weekend:

* A single-use soft rag that will strip wax from woodworked items is now available wherever woodwork tools are sold.

* Crafted candles now last twice as long as they used to.

* Small silver needles, heavy duty needles, and whalebone needles are no longer weapons. (This is part of an ongoing change to improve the underlying code to stop us having to fix needle bugs/implement needle ideas in three separate places.)

* D...

The "groups" and "group list" commands now have extra syntaxes allowing you to specify brief output (e.g. "groups brief").

The Mano Rossa guild title "Rooftop Rambler" has been changed to "Socio Rossa", for a more in-theme feel. (Please note that this is cod Italian rather than real Italian, and so there is no need to typo rep the lack of noun-adjective agreement.)

Inhuming the Lag/Laggy-San now counts towards the Lagbuster achievement.

The feather charm available from the Harbour Marke...

We have a collection of fixes and minor improvements for you!

* You can now use eg. 'pour 1/5 of ink well onto sponge' when staining. Using less or more than the amount the sponge needs will waste some. Using 'pour ink well on sponge' will still automatically take the correct amount (1/5 of the capacity of a standard ink well). The bug whereby using 'onto' would occasionally not colour the sponge has been fixed.

* Player-made staves are now slightly lighter than they were, which is to say they a...

Some parks in Ankh-Morpork were not spawning NPCs properly, affecting some sausage missions.

This has been fixed.

The ice axe has been rebalanced to bring it in line with other weapons. Specifically: it no longer boosts your rope-climbing or tree-climbing bonuses, the rock-climbing boost is now capped, it no longer acts as a staff, it is heavier than before, and it deals less damage than before. If you had one stored in a star sapphire ring via Crondor's Marvellous Sequestration, you will be able to retrieve it but you will not be able to store it again.

As pre-announced on the Frog board a week ago, th...

You should now be able to use a needle and thread to repair things made of more materials than you previously could. Specifically, the nice fabrics that Gerard de Wendelle uses should now be mendable, as should things made of fluff and things that appraise as "fabric". If you come across something that you can't mend, but you think you should be able to, please make a bug report on the needle saying what you were trying to mend, and where you got it from!
