    Default Auto Unlock Porticulum Upon Entering a Hub

    I have an idea as a quality of life improvement - why make players talk to the porticulum masters to unlock porticulums? Wouldn't it be better if the porticulum was unlocked just by virtue of having found that hub or area?

    Think about it, Trion.

    Well, Tacitus, that is a pretty solid idea. I am kind of busy right now, but I will see if I can slip it in under the wire and maybe get it in for 3.1.

    Would that work for you?

    This thread amuses me. Is it an RFC or just a silly way of sharing some news?

    Just a silly way to share the news.

    It's what happens when I am up well after midnight editing all the data to make this happen, lol. It was an off the cuff idea I had last week, and a valiant engineer added support for it already, so I figured... why not stay up late and get it in for 3.1?

    Yes, I too enjoy watching RoughRaptors getting pelted by Nerf Darts.



    Anyhow, I'm quite glad to see this feature making its way into the game, it'll be a welcome addition to many people.

    thanks for implementing this QoL change - there's many people who have been somewhere and forgot to talk to that porticulum master....

    *hope you did get some good rest too though*

    Now if you can only find a way to prevent players from AFKing on top of the portal masters. I know you can make them invisible but still annoying.

    I agree, this sure is a nice change, but I'm afraid people are still more concerned about actually finding the porticulum master amidst dozens of players.

    They don't even have an icon above their head if you have additional NPC icons activated, at least once you unlocked the porticulum.
    Though the icons aren't clickable anyway, unfortunately.

    Hiding other players needs to be key-bound first, and I guess most people have the easily reachable keys bound to more important things, making every porticulum use in crowded areas some kind of finger-yoga...

    I'm going to talk to a friend of mine about getting Kerilar that nerf gun API, so that he can program his computer to pelt you with darts the next time he feels like it.

    NO NEED TO THANK ME, RR. I CAN FEEL YOUR GRATITUDE FROM HERE.
