Coal & gem bags and Attack options

Coal & gem bags and Attack options

This weeks update offers a smorgasbord of features for which you voted in recent polls.

Motherlode Mine Rewards

Prospector Percy has expanded his store to include new coal and gem bags costing 100 gold nuggets each. The coal bag can store up to 27 coal which can be consumed from inside the bag when you're smelting and superheating. Gem bags can store 60 of each uncut gem up to dragonstone.

The Prospector outfit now also provides some protection from desert heat.

New toggles and options interface

In Poll 18, we offered to restructure the options interface to better accommodate all of the various buttons that you've voted to add over the last year. The interface has been redesigned based on a player suggestion with sub menus for Display, Audio, Chat & Control options accessed by the 4 tab buttons at the top of the interface.

New toggles have been added for roof removal and the stat panel tooltip to show XP remaining to next level. The ::toggleroof cheat still works.

You can also now select how to prioritize the Attack option on monsters and other players. Previously, the game would show it as the left-click option if it thought you were stronger than the target, or as a right-click option if you were weaker.

Now you can choose to make Attack always be the left-click option. This will apply to all monsters regardless of their combat levels. As part of this change GWD, NMZ and Wilderness bosses have had their left-click Fight option removed. It will also apply to other players when you're in a PvP area, unless you're wearing a team cape that overrides this.

You can also choose to make Attack always be a right-click option, which may be useful if you don't want to get into combat by accident, or if you're pickpocketing.

Bank Tab Tweaks

We've made a few tweaks to the bank following last week's update.

  • The bank scrollbar should now hold its position more reliably when closing the bank.
  • If you are dragging an item upwards the bank now waits a moment before scrolling so you can drag the item to the tab layer.
  • If you aren't using bank tabs, or have all of your items in the All tab, the bank once again shows your empty slots at the bottom.
  • Dragging around and inserting items should feel much more fluent.

In other news...

  • The options on other players' pets are no longer visible.
  • The Warriors' Guild bank now has a deposit box.
  • The Elidinis Statuette no longer restores Hitpoints on a PvP world.
  • Fixed the PvP world overlay displaying incorrect combat levels.
  • Cannons can no longer be set up on PvP worlds due to griefing issues.
  • Fixed an exploit allowing multiple followers.

We've opened the clue scroll competition! Details can be found here.

Look out for an announcement on the forums tomorrow regarding F2P.
