Another glitch with message furniture Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hi Forculus,

Not sure if any of the powers that be spotted my message on the other thread so i figured i will start a new one to be sure. Here is another glitch I have spotted since the last update.

It seems when using the larger font option if someone has typed in caps it is getting cut off too!
Also I had forgotten to mention before....the X on the side for deleting is also getting cut off.




Any chance those are easy fixes?

(P.S. release GREY as an official gold box colour! hint hint nudge nudge...I will never let this go!!)

The other gold box colors are nice, vivid gemstone kind of colors. Grey never really fit in anyway. :(

Thanks for including the screenshot, it makes it much easier to see everything that's going on. Looks like there are several things contributing to the display issue:
  • Message in all CAPS (takes more space)
  • Close to max-length message
  • Max length usernames
  • Large font size

With all those things combined, it's really difficult to make the message all fit on a single line when using the smallest resolution window. To make it work, I've shortened the month down to 3 letters ("Nov" instead of "November") and adjusted the pixel space for the message. I'll include the change in the next release.

For adding grey as a gold box color, I can do this if you get some support in your game design thread. I want to be sure there won't be HWFO from players specifically not wanting grey items from the gold box.

Thanks once again, Forculus, for all the "little changes" you make.

Haha, I really like that "not gonna happen". No change-induced HWFO from players? Good luck on that one.

I like how OOO keeps releasing useless stuff such as adding grey content to gold boxes, release a new SMH such as kraken .... But completly ignore flotillas for 6 years now!

Keep going though Forculus ... I just dont get why you are ignoring flots this bad for as long as 6 years!

Cause more than half this game dosen't give a f about flotillas. Try Atlantis. Also flotillas = ResidentSleeper

Everything mentioned in this thread is much easier to do a quick fix for. Flotillas, not so much.

Just noticed that long names don't get listed in full even though there's plenty of space left.
Has this been reported before?
