Due to vacations, the next update will be v1159 on 12 February 2020 —
one week later originally planned.
Would you like to know your future? If your answer is yes, think again.
Not knowing is the greatest life motivator. So enjoy, endure, survive
each moment as it comes to you in its proper sequence — a surprise.
— Vera Nazarian (b. 1966)
Happy (belated; OOC) New Year everyone!
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
— Jimi Hendrix (1942–1970)
Some areas now make a little more sense, skristally speaking.
There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading.
The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee
on the electric fence for themselves.
— Will Rogers (1878–1935)
Monsters should no longer spawn within inaccessible areas
in a certain haunted woods.
Morphed rangers should no longer turn invisible when suffering
the effects of deadly poppies.
Certain sticks are now more fragile.
One confused gerbil miscounted his fingers and toes, which is why this is v1146 instead of v1145.
“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom
of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory
with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’.”
— Douglas Adams (1952–2001), The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Words are like spices. Too many is worse than too few.
— Joan Aiken (1924–2004)
We expect that the next major version of macOS, Catalina (10.15), will
be released in the next few weeks. The current Clan Lord client
will not work with that system, and we don’t have any plans
to produce a new, compatible client. Those of you who wish to
continue playing the game have a few options — none of which,
regrettably, are ideal:
Refrain from upgrading; stick with macOS 10.14 or below.
Run one of those older system versions within a virtual machine or emulator
Switch to the Windows client, either in a VM or on real hardware (although that client has its own geriatric issues as well)
Made a change that may help prevent certain overzealous modem/routers
from prematurely closing communications between client and server.
