    14.3.2 update

    A quick update to address the breathing line change. Little things are important, especially when they're annoying!


    • added an atlatl warning trigger
    • added gleam triggers
    • added the new breathing trigger
    • disabled/deleted unknown crippled triggers in leu of the game showing which limbs are crippled exactly, so the system doesn't double-up on them
    • fixed aeon sometimes being falsely detected while in retardation or vice-versa
    • improved svo.prio.list() to return the list of priorities, and otherwise with svo.prio.list(true) echo it
    • updated the system for the all-in-one Tekura combos, which don't require a small delay on registering mangles if used

    I had a longer post written up but the CMS somehow stuffed up upon saving the draft and erased most of the post :(

    14.3.3 update

    It's another one of those enourmous with lots of stuff. Hurrah!

    Priests read this

    Have I got your attention? I hope I have. If you're a Priest, do CONFIG PROMPT CUSTOM *hh, *mm, *ee, *ww *b*d*c after updating the system. This will make the in-game prompt show Healing balance, which will allow the system to track it better. If the system ever thinks deaf/blind took your balance away when you healed someone else of it (it's fine it if it is on yourself), then you haven't done this. If someone else complains about it, then they haven't done that either.

    Priest balance was also added to the custom prompt tag, @promptstring - which is in use by default - so you should see an E pop up for your balance. There is also a separate tag now available, @healingbal, should you wish to put the balance elsewhere.

    Scripting: svo.gettreeableaffs()

    This handy new function returns you a list of afflictions that you currently have that are 'simple' - cured by tree, passive healing, bloodboil, and so on. This thus ignores mangles, timed afflictions and others - but includes common things like paralysis, asthma, stupidity and so on.

    Knight limbcounter anti-illusion

    Yep, finally added it - do tn ai to turn it on.

    Balance loss timers

    Little times showing how long your balance was missing for have been added to hydra, entities, healing and voice balances. Information is empowering, they say.

    NameDB: Mark tracking

    Big thanks to Veldrin for contributing Mark tracking to NameDB! Mark status is reflected on whois, and functions to set and check mark status have been added to the API.

    Tree strats for perm tattoos

    Owners of permanent tree tattoos, rejoice! Two new strategies are now included with Svo - one to touch the tree if you've got more than two afflictions (one wouldn't be useful - most of the time herb/focus/salve/smoke would get it), and another to touch if you've got more than three.

    As most people don't have a permanent tree tattoo, these are disabled by default - so visit vconfig2 to turn them on.

    Remeber that you can make your own, completely custom tree strats as well.

    Improved ninkharsag handling

    The system will now recognise it when an obvious cure was hidden by ninkharsag - for example, when you only had one affliction and it hid one, or only two and it hid two. When this isn't obvious, the system will now add an unknownany affliction - forcing you to eventually diagnose (unless you manually diagnose yourself) to sync the affliction tracking.

    As a little bonus for me, I now know how to spell ninkharsag.


    Tons of various stuff below, read on.

    • added the new void diag line
    • added two new tree curing strats for people with a permanent tree tattoo - any2affs and any3affs (2+ or 3+ affs to touch tree)
    • fixed a few afflictions not to get removed on an empty tree touch that tree doesn't cure
    • fixed an issue where if the parry config was corrupted (for whatever reason), the system wouldn't be able to load anything else after and not finish loading successfully either
    • fixed bedevil defence to require all 5 channels open

    • fixed enchanter to wave the feather for worrystones (thanks Jukilian)
    • fixed hamstring expiring echo that can sometimes show up even if hamstring is gone
    • fixed healing balance loss not to be counted for blind and deaf when you cure it on yourself
    • fixed mending/renewal spam on a mangled limb (the line in the game was changed)

    • fixed monolith highlight trigger not to conflict with text replacement, and made it a bit brighter as a bonus (thanks Malaphus!)
    • fixed ninkharsag to get removed if it stays on for far too long
    • fixed priest self-heal not curing an affliction to be recognised again, as it was changed in the game (doesn't say the "person isn't afflicted" anymore)

    • fixed the system not unpausing and returning the custom prompt after editing a poster
    • fixed vconfig2 displaying a period in the wrong place when preclotting was on and clotting was off
    • improved arm balance triggers (thanks Bouff!)
    • improved ninkharsag handling - if it hides cures of an obvious affliction, the system will take it off
    • improved ninkharsag to add an unknown affliction when it hides an affliction, so the system will diagnose eventually with enough unknowns
    • improved system to re-do things that were cancelled by sleep right away when you wake up
    • set the newly-added tree strategies of any2affs and any3affs to be disabled by default
    • updated fitness skill detection during install for blademasters to work (it was looking for fitness in shindo before)

    14.5.1 update!

    There's been a fair bit of big changes to the game through classleads in the game lately, and I'm working through them. It'll take a few days though, and to ease the pain of having an outdated system, this intermediate update is published. This covers most of the Alchemist changes plus the new syntax error message that's popping up. More updates will follow to complete updating the system!

    • fixed a meropis pacifism bashing trigger to be peace
    • fixed anti-illusion not to go off on cures being applied too fast when serverside curing is on

    • NameDB: added alchemist class detection for a few more attacks
    • removed lust from being ignored when server-side curing is on; it doesn't cure it
    • removed some defences that were put on ignore accidentally when you turned off aff curing

    • updated diag not to say an affliction is ignored when server-side curing is on

    Just a heads up, I know you said more updates are coming but pipe refilling is pretty broken right now, SVO doesn't take into account the pipe balance when trying to smoke the last puff and then refill, so currently refilling only works if you use refillat 0

  • VadimusesVadimuses Member Posts: 1,122 @ - Epic Achaean

    Wouldn't it run out of puffs and then refill anyway?

    That it does, but it would refill when it tries to smoke and the pipe is empty (which isn't great still).

    That'd suck balls if you tried to smoke elm to cure the aeon only to discover you had to fill the pipe.

  • VadimusesVadimuses Member Posts: 1,122 @ - Epic Achaean
    Yeah, that's the not great part. At any rates, updates are coming.

  • VadimusesVadimuses Member Posts: 1,122 @ - Epic Achaean

    14.5.2 update!

    This is the second half of system updates to cover the classlead changes - covers things like pipe balances and so on. The system is pretty much updated for the classlead changes now and is no longer outdated.

    Dragonheal balance

    Dragonheal balance has been added, and works as you'd expect - the system won't dragonheal when you haven't got it, it shows up in vshowb and svo.bals, and system events are raised for it.

    Smoke balance

    Smoke balance has been added as a 'real' balance to the system - it existed before, all smoke-related affs were on it already, but they just didn't use it. Same as dragonheal, smoke balance shows up everywhere you'd expect it, and it has the balance timer visible well.

    Important: since smoke balance priorities actually matter now, adjust aeon & other important friends to be higher up in the priority!

    Purgative balance

    Similar to the smoke balance, purgative balance already existed - sipping immunity/antigen will now use it up.

    Inundate effects

    The system now properly accounts for inundate effects, and in case of the Phlegmatic one where you get hidden, randomised afflictions, it'll try to do a best guess at what you've got.


    The newly-added Evileye truestare defence is now available on defup and keepup.

    Sileris timeout

    The sileris timeout has been increased per the classlead changes from 6s to 8s.


    The system now tracks the pinshot affliction, and won't vault if you've got it up.

    A note on pre-filling pipes

    The system hasn't yet been updated not to use the refillat feature while you've got selfishness up. If you have selfishness up, you can't use the EMPTY syntax to empty a pipe; the only way to empty it was to smoke it away. Since there is a smoke balance in place now, you can't do that. Either put selfishness down when fighting (not a great idea) or set the refillat to be 0, so the system will only refill it when it actually runs out. This change does give an edge to Aeon, as you can't make sure your pipes don't run out so easily anymore - and related just to the smoke balance itself, you can be put off smoke balance before being given aeo, delaying the curing.


    See stuff below.


    • added dragonheal balance to dragonheal
    • added dragonheal, smoke balances (purgative already existed)
    • added new inundate effects
    • added pinshot affliction
    • added purgative balance to immunity sipping
    • added smoking balances to smoke affs
    • added truestare to evileye defences
    • extended sileris timeout
    • removed the sparks tracker addon
    • updated allowed danaus, nemesis affs
    • updated vaulting not to go off with pinshot

    Any chance we can add gripping to vodun/puppetry defences? It is possible it's already in the system and I missed it.. If so, please disregard. Thanks for the updates Vadi

    Sure, send me a mail with the syntax, the on, already on, off, already off and defence lines.

    14.5.3 update!

    Just a quick update for the changed deathsight line in the game and a few other things that came by.


    • added a few more occy ent balance loss lines
    • added a note on affliction names in documentation
    • added devil/devilmark off line
    • documented vconfig decaytime option in elist sorter (the option was already visible in vconfig2)
    • fixed aff curing status not being loaded right (system would think its curing was on when it was actually off)
    • improved unnamable trigger to account for randomness in affliction delivery time
    • updated AI to account for server curing system's commands
    • updated deathsight line
    • updated system to recognise when the server curing lights pipes
    • updated the 'max stuff in rift' line
    • updated the system to use the "light pipes" command for lighting pipes. A note though, when you have an empty unlit pipe, the game says you haven't got any pipes that need lighting - in the odd case the system thinks the pipe is full when it's empty, it'll get confused and keep trying to light it. Check plist when that happens - it'll refill it & then light it successfully.
    • updated tree, dragonheal not to remove affs madness blocks from curing when you've got maddness
  • VadimusesVadimuses Member Posts: 1,122 @ - Epic Achaean
    14.6.1 update!

    An update to fix up some general things!


    The gripping defence has been added to puppetry and vodun skillsets, so you can defup and keepup it now.

    Disrupts herb curing

    Herb curing has been added to the rest of disrupts afflictions, alongside focus curing. By default, they'll be at the bottom of the herb priorities - you can move them up with vshow > herb if you'd like.

    Better tracking of server-side

    The system will now track when server-side is curing impales, and a specific case where the system thought you had frozen but server-side cures shivering is accounted for now as well.

    Herb madness cures

    A follow-up to the previous update where dragonheal/tree/etc no longer wipes madness and the affs it blocks, herbs no longer do as well when you get no cures.


    • added an 'already on' line for groundwatch
    • added grip to puppetry/vodun
    • added herb curing to disrupts
    • added more bashing triggers
    • added tracking to server-side curing for impales
    • added tracking to server-side curing shivering when the system thinks we've got frozen
    • fixed empty herb eating wiping madness affs when you've got madness
    • updated guarding trigger
    • updated judgement warnings for artefact maces
    • updated soulspear line for named spears
    • updated the limbcounter AI not to have false positives

  • NoakNoak Member Posts: 144 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished

    Hi Vadi,

    The tattoo add-on triggers need to be updated. Once a tattoo is finished the system remains paused and it doesn't auto-touch.

    Yes. Log in to Mudlet, wait for Svo's "I can't download" spam to finish. Go into package manager. Uninstall any one of the Svo folders (they'll all be uninstalled). Manually download your Svo file from Dropbox - http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/84880/svo/r/Character%20svo.zip (replace Character with your character's name). Within package manager, click Install and navigate to where you saved the zip. Wait for install. Restart Mudlet. Enjoy.

    Haven't had balanceless since runie. Aand it keeps bouncing between vault and mount. No explanation why.
