Today I Learned

ZailaZaila Pacific TimeMember Posts: 547 ✭✭✭✭✭
I looked back and tried to find an existing TIL thread, but could only find an OOC one!
I've been playing Aetolia for a decent number of years at this point, but I feel like I still wind up with random little things that I somehow just never knew were out there ALL. THE. TIME. This seemed like a fun place for us to share the things that make us laugh, delighted, alarmned, "OMG, HOW DIDN'T I KNOW?!", or whatever else

So, @seir - thank you for my first!

Usage: CALENDAR NOTE ADD [month] [year]
CALENDAR NOTE LIST
CALENDAR NOTE DESC
CALENDAR NOTE REPEAT
CALENDAR NOTE REMIND <0-5> WEEKS
CALENDAR NOTE REMOVE

I had no idea this was a thing! You can set yourself reminders of upcoming events and birthdays and the game will msg you about it when they're approaching!

    omg @Mariena that's going to be so useful, I never knew that either. I always mess myself up using overlapping commodities.

    I still see so many of you manually unlocking and opening your doors. Try the autodoors config! Makes shopkeeping a snap.

    Usage: CONFIG AUTODOORS <ON/OFF> When this option is turned on, you will automatically attempt to open closed doors as you pass through them. If the door is locked and you have a key, you will unlock it and close/lock it behind you.

    I guess one thing a lot of people don't realize is like PATH FIND BANK PATH FIND BOUNTIES and crap usually works in cities.

    PATH FIND PYLON, on the other hand, takes you to your own city's pylon from just about anywhere.

    Today I learned that room atmosphere messages are not necessarily room-wide and shared.

    Zaila saw the catepillar, but .. I DID NOT.

    That's something I've always hated - it makes atmos msgs pointless because you can't react to them.

    That caterpillar didn't want to be seen. He just wanted to VAMOOSE from that dogpile of crazy!

    The idea here is that it lets us give very specific parameters for those messages, like order membership, race, what have you. But I definitely see your point on these more general messages. 
    You say to Slyphe, "You're so freaking smart."

    If your system makes you stand every prompt, you'd better pause it.

    I just learned that warhammer and maul seem to be much easier when Bashing as a Carnifex. I'm also not terribly fond of venoms, so I might stick with blunts.

    The stone rapidly separates from Tlachinolli, the instructor's body as she brings the lesson in Terramancy to an end.
    Your skill in Terramancy has risen to Transcendent.
    You have obtained the EARTHENFORM ability!

    I decided to try a new keyboard layout on my phone, so naturally I am typoing like mad and now the error has taught me a new command!
    QI
    Short for "quest items"!  It works like II, but just lists all the quest items in your inventory!
    Additional perk, some of the items have little explanations!! 
    Thanks for teaching me something new, colemak keyboard!

    I'll admit, TIL someone made that. I knew the word function existed, but dang, that's pretty.
