As some of you already know Noctorious was re-opened today. For those of you who don't know about the server. It is not an era remake although some people may try to call it that and it is not another Graal Ghetto either.
Noctorious is a Modern server, where you can buy houses or condos or even businesses. You can hunt zombies and rob the bank as well, or if you don't wanna do that you can go buy a car and crusie around the city. Here on Noctorious we try to make everything as unique as possible. With that said...
come Join Noctorious today :)

If you have ant questions, comments or concerns, feel free to let us know

The screenshots look way too dark. I hope the entire server isn't like that.

I got on. Looks neat, but how do I make some coinage without digging it from the ground?

I want one of said condos/cars/businesses. :P

I love this server! It must have taken quite a lot of time to get it to this standard. Well done!

It's been worked on for a while now x] It's still missing a lot of polishing though. We'll hopefully be finishing it soon.

I went on, while everything looks ok, im pretty put off by the mouse over text on the map and the qmenu, you should make the text a bit smaller or a nicer font. Also while you insist this isnt an era copy face the facts:
-when you hold down q on era you get the q menu. When you release it the menu hides, same on noctorious -_-
-The map pretty much uses the same idea except done without a transparent background and lack of icons.
-shell digging

Theres some other stuff but thats just highly controversial so Ill stay clear of that.

However you do have fishing which era doesnt so good on you for that :)

The text is so you know where to go. We don't even have shell fishing, and you tell me what server donse't use Q as the menu option. It is common on all servers, not just era. Please explain how we use their map concept as well? Because im sure if I made another map you would say the exact same thing. You can't login into a server and say this and that is era. Every modern server has modern features such as, vehicles,business, houses, a city map. Yes we included shoveling but that dosen't mean we logged into era and said hey lets do shoveling. Just because they had it first dosen't mean the own the title to having simple jobs and a modern style server. Also you take the time to list only the downside of things instead of the other features we have. You left out 4 other jobs fishing, Zombie hunting, bank robbing, and crate delivery. Just because it has one or 2 features that era has dosen't make it an era remake.

I really like what you have going here, nice looking tileset and the activities are easy enough to get the hang of.

Some constructive criticism:
* It's too hard for newbies (me) to find things even via the map. I highly recommend placing icons on the building that you can hover over. Or even descriptive icons such as a fishing rod/hook for the fishing shop, gun for the armoury and so on...
* You need something about the number menus in the beginning tutorial. I found the '4' menu very helpful once I stumbled upon it.
* Having to open your inventory to equip the ATM card to use an ATM is a big hassle. Maybe just check to see that they have the item when 'A' is pressed.
* The roads feel too unplanned which I also find annoying about Era. Need to hire a city planner ;)
* setbody / sethead also failed when I tried, perhaps also some tutorial information on changing appearance too.

And I highly recommend removing that NPC that says they just got a gun shipment in from Era. It's not helping your case against the Era faithful.

Good luck with the rest of the development! It's looking great so far!

I was more criticizing you for using q in exactly the same way as era, you hold down q menu and u have to keep it depressed other wise it disappears, same thing is on noctorious o.0 However since you knocked over my other point I find it hard arguing over one thing so I'll stop, and just so you know I didnt complain about cars being on both servers since its a pretty general idea, its kinda hard to avoid as a server feature. However why just cars, you can have motor bikes, scooters and a whole lot of public transport including buses, ferries,trams and taxis. I dont see era doing any of this public transport apart from there helicopter, how ever the door is open to originality in this particular instance!

And the 'Q' menu / item dropping for Era was inspired by the original Graal Kingdoms menu. I know this because it was me who made it :P

If something works well, why try re-invent the wheel?

EDIT: To clarify, I made the original item menu in Era. It has changed since then, but the original functionality still exists.

There are a numbero f things that we need to add to the tutorial but just haven't ogtten around to it just yet. As for the roads explain what you mean because the map was planned, and I know this because I made the entire map and all the inside levels as well and I built the road as an outline and then places buildings. For the bodies all you have to do is press t for a the tailor, and for the commands list just press N for those as well.

Why not just make a gun server that is strictly killing, and doesn't water/dumb it down with stupid jobs like shoveling and what not.

It'd be better to aim for a new crowd (people who don't want to do jobs) than to just attempt to split Era in half with a different version of it.

Great to hear that there's more planned for the tutorial.

As for the roads, perhaps I just have a city mindset as opposed to a small town mindset. Cities having large blocks of many buildings in a grid-like fashion. Whereas a town would be much like what you have set up there.

Guess I just need to play more to familiarise myself with the place ;)

I agree with Fowlplay. I think adding shoveling and jobs of the likes kind of kill the core server. Instead of just shoveling and mining for money to buy guns, why can't you just raid places and fight gangs and get a reward of guns or money and then get the supplies you need. (Of course if a party/group is raiding, the rewards would be split between them evenly.)
