Thanks to Diana's very useful awkatron, we now have maps of my own efforts, as found in a 10 Mb file worth of exploration logs. Behold :
To go with it, some selection of the better bits of today's other log :
diana_coman Hmm, so 1 level up in building seems to give me quite unfailingly 1q point in everything; on the other hand, 2 levels up in farming gave me nothing.
diana_coman the only kind of hypothesis I have so far is that I'm kind of way top on building while farming is unimpressive, though that doesn't sound like much of a theory. I think you are next in building mircea_popescu, aren't you? What's your building level?
mircea_popescu Possibly. 371.
diana_coman Hm, doesn't sound like a huge diff to my 404. Although the levels around 400 were huge.
mircea_popescu Yeah they vary. What q farming do you get yet ? And mining or lumberjack and basics ?
diana_coman 135 on farming now. Need to check the rest.
mircea_popescu Please do.
diana_coman 116 mining. So 58 farming gives me... 21 q points lolz. 162 basics. 102 sortage gives me 48.
* diana_coman still thinks the most likely thing is that Foxy is simply an idiot
Birdman2 you keep saying that foxy, do you think your int. effects some of this?
mircea_popescu I'm at 105 non-lj, about 200 basics and 200 lj. So 37 lj gives me ~95, 282 sortage gives me... ~100 say. Clearly I'm talented at lj and you're talented at basics. I'm certainly doing worse in basics than you are. In fact, going with a simple linear model for a second here, 58/21 = 2.761904762 ; 102/48 = 2.125 ; 37 / 95 = 0.389473684 ; 282 / 100 = 2.82. So you're ever so slightly better at sortage than me, much better at farming, but I totally MURDER it with lj.
Birdman2 That would be cool game mechanics if your stats effected skills and all that.
Birdman2 Well then, Eulora may just have potential to be the greatest RPG.
mircea_popescu I think so.
Birdman2 Mmm, I've always wanted to have a game that uses real money for the currency. Just wish I had started at the same time as you guys.
mircea_popescu Why do you think it makes a difference ?
Birdman2 I could have done some things differently for sure.
mircea_popescu like what ? [14:28]
Birdman2 Well I spent a week or two gathering at level one, and failed to realise I needed to train to progressi, which led me to think the game sucked and stopped playing it for a month or so. So in that time I just feel I might have missed opportunity or a full understanding of the game.
mircea_popescu Well ok, but unlike every other MMORPG out there, the limiting factor in Eulora isn't time. It's money. If you do things dumbly and waste a lot of ECUs, they're gone. If you don't... you can keep playing.
Birdman2 Yeah I like that.
mircea_popescu So in this sense, it's never really "oh if I started earlier". Like Diana says.
And so it goes.———
- Hey, took one guy a whole day to figure out the recipes go in the mind slot :D
Eulora has curves to it. Learning curves. [↩]
