    AWESOME! I especially can't wait for the storylines! I've been waiting for those for a while.

    I love all of this.
    At first glance I was wary of the xp system mentioned but it feels like it is a good improvement.

    One minor thing though.
    Could we get xp from doing things like, growing flowers and getting up-votes?
    It's just I feel that more focus has been on the more 'active' part of Deepworld and that it would be nice to have more emphasis on the 'passive' side. For the people that don't go round bombing everyone in PvP (Or even do PvP), and for the people that like to build, and chat with other players over slaughtering brains in some dungeon.

    I do really like the storyline sections. Brain invasions was actually a player suggestion! I do like the idea of giving android personalities. Would cats and dogs get them as well?

    XP = Amazing Idea! I would suggest some perks for leveling up like maybe cloths. Nothing that would give the player an advantage over other players, though.

    Yep, we will be adding XP bonuses to as many different kinds of play as possible. Building is hard to track due to how free-form it is, but we have some ideas there too. Feel free to supply your own, too - flowers is a good example I hadn't thought of!

    @mikelaurence‌ you may of made a typo. Isnt it supposed to be 81 skill levels?

    The blog said:
    Player levels will be constrained to match skill totals, not achievements. With 9 skills and 9 points applicable to each, that means you’ll be able to get to level 82. And will skill books and brain wines still exist?

    Yep, a new dungeon gen system is in the works. We'll have a blog post up in a couple weeks once we're sure it works okay :)

    Sweet! Can't wait to see the story line being slowly unveiled, and also to make friends with androids.

    Will we earn XP points when we hit a new amount of items mined? For instance, when someone mines their 1,000,000th block?

    Good idea!

    Whilst we're all shooting ideas for xp, what about xp docking? Will there be XP lost from death, or from negative actions like bombing players (karma)?
  • ZapfuryZapfury Posts: 3,142Member
    Will the current dungeon raids and everything thing else carry over for the XP or will everyone start "fresh"?
