Title: Updates January 25th 2019 - Activity / Kill Log Overhaul and Completionist Cape!
Post by: Thomy on January 25, 2019, 08:58:01 am
Hey guys,

I hope you've all had a great Christmas and a happy New Year! I've also taken a little break and spent some time with my family and friends. The update of today contains the Completionist cape, a rework of the Kill Logs, adds counters for various activities and releases 7 new pets that are rewards from the Pest Control minigame. Santa has also finally decided to leave the Grand Exchange and will be back next year!

Completionist Cape
You can now obtain the Completionist Cape by visiting the top floor of Varrock's museum. Requirements to wear this cape can be found in the museum when clicking on the cape and may be changed at every update! Wearing the Completionist cape requires having completed most of our content many times.

Colours can be changed dynamically through the colour picker or by providing RGB values. I've decided that it's easier to select and use colours in RGB space rather than HSL (RS comp cape) for those interested. The colour picker is in HSL space, because imho that is a more natural selection of colours. You are also able to load and save up to 10 presets, the first preset is the cape's default colours and cannot be overwritten.

Monster Kill Log
I've decided to completely rework the Kill Log interface to increase its usability. You are now given your kills as a table, which can be sorted alphabetically, by total kills or by your streak. The third column called streak allows you to set a unique counter for every monster that you kill. You can reset it at any given time. The interface also allows you to search for a given monster. The bottom row has a selection or pre-defined filters: Please let me know what you think of it and how it could be improved in the future. Below's a screenshot showing off the Monster Kill Log interface:

Activity Completion Log
With a rework of monster kill logs I've decided to also create an interface where you can see counters for numerous activities. I'm sorry to say that I cannot travel back in time and collect data of previously completed activities... so most of the counters will start from 0.

I've added a few activities that I find interesting to be counted. Do you have any ideas for other activities that could be counted and put into this interface? Please let me know!

Pest Control Pets
You can now buy 7 different and iconic pets from the Pest Control minigame. Each pet costs 15k pest tokens and cannot be traded with other players.

Additional Map Spawns
I've found that some objects weren't properly spawned. They simply were missing their configs and turned invisible. Barbarian village will now contain several new objects. This also counts for several other areas around the map.

This update is one of the largest I've ever done at once. I hope there aren't too many bugs throughout all the new content. Please don't hesitate to report issues on Discord or in the Bug Reports section: https://emps-world.net/forum/bug-reports/
Good luck on your Completionist cape grind! :D

All the best,
Thomy

Nice update,

@Thomy, Do you planning to do anything to re active the wild? its kinda boring for pkers, i hope to see the wildy activity again as sooon as possible!

Wilderness activity is growing each day. Most of the time, there are 3-5 PvP’ers at the same time in wilderness. This is a huge difference with 1 month ago when you were hoping there would just be someone. Unfortunately for you, only main accounts fight in wilderness at the moment. So I don’t think pure PvP’ing will grow soon.

Anyways, thanks for the updates Thomy!
