    Wink More than 20 Active Dims now, please?

    I can see how before, when we didn't have NEARLY as many keys, 20 active dims was a reasonable limit. But with as many as we have now, and as ridiculously creative as the dim community is, can we PLEASE get this limit increased?

    I keep poking at this. There are apparently server load issues that get exponentially worse by increasing the per character dimension cap, but I have zero insight into specifically why (not being an engineer). But the engineering team is WELL aware of my continued pushing for this to be improved.

    If increasing the dim limit by character is impossible to do, maybe you could increase the number of characters by shard?
    Building on an alt is not perfect, but it can be an alternative.
    As an altaolic at max number on my native shard, I would like being able to buy more character slots. I already had to move a toon on another shard, and lost all votes on her dims. Not a pleasant thing.

    While I would love to see the number of dimensions per character increased, I would agree that there are some underlying changes that really need to be made.

    I have not been able to copy my main to the PTS since before Nightmare Tide came out (she is at 20/20 full dimensions). I don't know if the number of dimensions contributes to that, but I do know that I now have three characters on Greybriar I can't copy over--two with 20/20, the third with 18/20.

    Once I hit 17/20, being able to copy to PTS became unreliable. The last time I attempted a ticket, CS could not even copy my main over. At the time, I was told to make a forum post to try to get the issue resolved (which seems to me to be the wrong thing to tell someone having a problem like this). I haven't pressed the issue because it seems to not be something that would be a priority fix, even though for me it IS a priority and very frustrating to not be able to copy over the character that has the money, notoriety and other currencies to be able to purchase things on PTS that aren't on the 1s vendor.

    Having this issue be pretty much blown off all the way around tells me quite clearly what my business means. I think before additional slots are granted to build in, perhaps that data problem (or whatever it is) should be fixed.

    Well, yes, this is EXACTLY why the cap has not been increased. There are underlying issues on the server side that are making this very much non-trivial (to quote the engineering team).

    If it was just a matter of increasing the number allowed, I could do that in 60 seconds - there is literally a max number of dims variable that is a simple number value. The only thing blocking me is the engineering team shouting "Don't push the red button!".

    But I really want to push the red button, so I will keep asking them - at which point both concerns would hopefully be addressed.

    So you need to stay at 16 dims max on a toon to avoid problems?
    thank you for the info, good to know it even if I am still far from this limit.

    Good to hear you're still pushing for this, hopefully the engineering team will eventually come up with a clever way around this problem.

    Yes, and in the case of my main, I started breaking down dimensions to try to find the sweet spot where I could copy her. Even at 17, I couldn't move her, but I could copy my next alt at 17.

    This is with no auctions, and no mail, of course.

    My primary question, I suppose, would be if this just applies to copying to PTS, or does it also impact server transfers? I've been on GB pretty much since the day I started playing barring a sojourn on Faeblight to work a guild dim, but I wonder if that would also be affected.

    One can suppose this is the visible part of the iceberg... Maybe this causes other problems we can't see, or things we don't think are related. I remember devs saying dims with parts outside the limit were lowering server performance. So dims have a big impact on the game.
    Better to stay under 17 just in case...

    Would really love to see the option to have multiple keys of the same key...

    Being able to use dims like anywhere multiple times would be lovely as there are not many empty template keys.
