    I understand the limitations of having oversight and help with customisation, but customisation, at least to me is about 95% of what makes achaea better than say WOW. You can craft standardized shit on wow. A crafting skill here that requires like $100 cash value to learn and has 0 customization benefits is not something that is shiny or cool to me in a text game. Hell, I'd rather just be able to pay IRE 10 dollars for a couch or whatever furniture I need without shitting with the skillset and comms to get a non unique item that I can sit on.

    So get someone to make you a bare bones base of an item, then put it through the customisation system. 

    I can agree that having more in-game non-credit customisation would be fantastic and preferred, but it's been stated numerous times they don't have the admin time to spare for it, nor the admin time to spare to watch over players doing the checks instead.

    I mean, unless there's a brilliant alternative no one's mentioned yet, I have no idea why people are surprised, much less annoyed/angry about it.
    "You have had an extraordinary adventure, my dear. Extraordinary! One that few people could ever imagine. Treasure it. Keep it safe and secure, tucked away in some special place in your heart. 

    But... don't spend the rest of your days chasing a ghost."

    To clarify, I'm not angry about it, but I do think that if limited staff is the issue, that "pay $50 for someone to edit a text paragraph representing the furniture that already took hundreds of credits and hours of gold to make" is a pretty flimsy cop out. I think if people are angry about this, sure that's a bit pushing it, but I can understand why people think this is kind of lame and just another cash grab. It puts more strain on the comms market while requiring credits and time build up to get essentially the same thing you had before. It's an unnattractive move, and I think people are justified to comment. If you create a product and create a forum where people can give feedback, you can't really be upset when people call you out for providing lacklustre content that costs them more than what they already had access to.

    This thread kind of went from "man, that Khaibit guy, what a jerk" to "wait, I don't know if I like this either", heh.  

    The thing that frustrates me when these things comes up every once in awhile is a couple of things.  First, there is (still, in 2016) this persistent idea that the game is free and that the staff are all volunteer hobbyists who just try to build this really cool game on weekends.  And then sometimes in the next sentence it's "but this is a business".  I think we just need to agree that it IS a business, and drop the pretense of the first part.  

    And either way, for a lot of players who do buy stuff, this game is more like a serious cocaine habit than a free game we dabble in.  That is in fact, the actual model.  

    Now just because we pay doesn't mean we get to throw TVs at people who make the high grade cocaine we buy, but sometimes players aren't going to like the new product, and they're going to say it, especially if they feel they're getting squeezed.

    @Cellorran I am always impressed with your responses to feedback. You're always a joy to work with and a very amicable content producer. Thank you for hearing our feedback and assuring us that there will be deeper levels of content creation to come.

    On one or two things, yes. Sometimes the admin communicate with players about content and how it is being developed or works. That's part of what makes Achaea great.

    Go away, Bleak, we don't need you sniping at people here, too. Especially when Jinsun is being perfectly reasonable and civilised.
    If he'll stick to being mediocre at serpent while maintaining his harmless and laughably ignorant troll status and stay away from working with the admin on content creation, I think we can all just be glad for that.

    So, people beg and beg for years for drinks, or containers,  or something fun and useful, and the tradeskill we get is furniture? 
    Something used rarely?
    Something that removes a money sink from the game?

    I had a tv thrown at my head the other night, and yet this upsets me more.

    Sooo, i'm late to the thread and don't want to change topics or anything.... butttt... now that the time and effort put into this tradeskill are done. Does this mean we can focus now on fixing things that have been a matter of concern for X amount of years. like how to fix this screwy game mechanic  ( thothsfang+lightwall+hypnosis= what were you thinking? )

    While we're at it, let's take a look at dual blunt dps (even without your artis it's still pretty horrendous) and alchemist aff rate too :)

    eta: I'd say Monk too, but if the past... Nearly two decades... Are anything to go by, complaints about Monk generally don't go all that great.
