Y'all are pack rats

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Thu Apr 26, 2012 8:35 pm

Really. Some people, not so much. Others, I'm shocked they can find any inventory space.

Out of curiosity, I recently added a bit of code that writes to the server log how many items a PC logs in with, counting each stack as only one item, not counting items in equipment slots, and not counting ethereal chests. Today I think I spotted the highest numbers recorded to date: 736 for one character, and 826 for another. Most seem to be logging in with between 75 and 200 non-slotted items.

As far as ethereal chests go, the database file that holds those (and only those), is currently at 677 MB.

Like I said, y'all are pack rats. Razz

I knew I had a problem when I kept having to juggle items between my PC's inventory and the ethereal chest...

Better than I used to be. At least now for the most part, I try and limit mysrlf to three Bags of Holding per page of inventory to try and help combat the Lag Monster; used to be nine.

I'm trimming down, myself, though I can't actually give before/after stats ... probably carry a heckuva lotta gear as opposed to others ... y'know, if it's bright and shiny, how can you expect us to not pick it up and carry it around? XP

My try at limiting my pack rat needs, has been not to acquire an ethereal chest with my characters. Only has two characters (out of 5 in total) with an ethereal chest. XD

Re: Y'all are pack rats

Post by Ramana Jala on Wed May 23, 2012 8:43 am

My rogueish Ramana is indeed a pack rat, but that's her trademark, to carry a huge pack of traps and tricks of all kinds, and a nice wardrobe. She carries everything that could be immediately useful, and I admit that there is only half a page to collect new stuff, that has to be immediately sorted to a pageful of loot bags. (Thus my headaches with the unidenitfied gems that I've mentioned elsewhere.) And everything is useful, although I do need to sort all the scrolls she collects to cut them down to less than four containers. And the worst thing is all the yet-unused Custom Item Vouchers. The only thing she uses her Ethereal Chest for is to store 1) things that she might contribute to newbies, 2) stuff being collected for upgrades, and 3) clothes that are used as templates or materials for her dressmaking business.

My new wizard alternate personality for her, Ranara, I'm intending to be a minimalist, and go without an Ethereal Chest for as long as possible, because she is nearly colorblind so she doesn't collect a wardrobe, she is antisocial so she won't collect things for others, and although she will use traps, she will rely on her own intrinsic magic more than her other self's huge bag of all sorts of tricks.

Aseph has quite a few boxes in his invnetory solely for keeping a lot of the various Dwarf/Maker upgrades in order. He does have quite a few of those boxes though... But I don't think he gets anywhere near 700.... geez. What in the world are you carrying to get that high of a number?

A full stock of at least 5 of EVERY scroll, every potion bottle, every type of wand and rod, several hundred rings, crystals, light gems, faerie stones, iounstones, very useful cloaks, helms and amulets, a couple of different outfits, boots and belts, some varied weaponry, armours and shields, craft and tradeskill related stuff for each trade, familiar elemental books, books of other stuff too (Traders Aid, BeldsBigBook etc), stuff for the dwarf, all types of ammo for every ranged weapon, a different ranged weapon to use the ammo with, class stuff (clerical cloak, ident widgets, "." book etc), general aenea lifeskills stuff (bedroll, jump widget, pc crystal, treasure splitter etc), food by the dozens, BoM's and Soul Gems, one each of aenea's birthday items, a torch and the kitchen sink !

It's REALLY NOT HARD to acquire 700-800 bits of "junk" Smile Smile Smile ....
.. but *I* have no idea who The Amethyst Dragon was talking about being a pack rat... and that's without looking into the echest for all the rest of the stuff Smile

Let us put it this way, before re-incarnation it took me nearly four RL HOURS to sell off all of Grace's junk. OKay there WAS maybe 1/2 hr of RP while I gave some of it away but it was just a constant click-sell, click-sell, click-sacrifice, drag-drop sell, click-sell.... it was ALMOST as tedious as doing the Food for the Feast quest .... .... .... ... ..
