Downtime Report: Wednesday Night

We had an abrupt and unannounced downtime for all games and services starting sometime after 9pm PT on Wednesday evening. This was due to a massive power outage at our cloud computing facility of the sort that redundant systems are supposed to ensure never happen. After about an hour they were able to diagnose that the power was out. It took a few more hours for them to start restoring service.

At this moment, everything is back up except for Ironclaw and TEC. At the rate they're restoring things, I hope those will be back up in the next 15-30 minutes, but it's entirely in their hands.

As is typically the case with a sudden reboot, TEC and GR have to be rolled back. This is already done with GR. The TEC rollback should be just a few hours due to the more recent backups recently instituted, but I need to get the machine back before I can verify that.

Update: Ironclaw and TEC are now back too. The TEC rollback was 2.5 hours, from 9.30pm PT (when everything crashed) to 7.00 pm PT.

  • More Woodsie Updates!

    • A new Lore has been added to the game called "Advanced Camp Cooking Lore".
    • Advanced Camp Cooking Lore allows woodsie cooks (depending on their ranks in Basic Camp Cooking - specific rank requirements withheld) to use alternate cooking methods on various cookable items.
    • Different cooking methods detailed in this lore work on different types of items, but there is some crossover for each method.
    • These alternative cooking methods add new flavors, smells, and descriptions to the food in question.
    • Some of these methods require the use of new cooking tools.
    • A new cooking tool has been added as an option to the Whittle skill. Skewers!
    • A new cooking tool has been added as an option to the Survival Weaving skill. Broilers!
    • A new Lore has been added to the game called "Field Dressing Lore".
    • Field-dressing entails turning certain corpses into whole food items rather than skinning them for individual parts. A chicken corpse, for example, would become 'an uncooked whole chicken'.
    • Field-dressing requires a certain number of ranks in Advanced skinning (specific rank requirements withheld) in order to use.
    • Details and usage syntax of both new Lores can be found by recalling the lore in question once learned.
    • Both Lores function like previously released woodsie Lores. They can be purchased with General Skill Points, or with skill points in the related skillset.
    • Please see your local cave-dwelling wild-man if interested in learning these new and exciting camping Lores.
    As posted in the Minor Changes forum thread. Enjoy, and feel free to discuss!

    (Note: These are camp cooking methods, so do not expect pots, pans, oils, or seasonings.)

    Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Creativity is putting tomatoes in a fruit salad to make mango salsa. Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is actually a smoothie. Common Sense is knowing that no, ketchup is not a smoothie.

        Going to go with no (as this is geared towards wild game that can be caught in traps). And also? Eeewwwwwww! (>_<)

          After some constructive player feedback, the following changes have also been implemented:
          • More forest critters can now also be field-dressed.
          • Field-dressing a corpse now results in a quality-of-skinning descriptor (based on your combination of ranks in all three skinning skills) just like normal skinning to reflect the quality of the final product.
          • Skinning ranks now determine the final quality of field-dressed food items and better quality results in better tasting food, just like normally skinned meat.
