I just finished the bug fix for my Cow Quest, and I even have the new cow graphics ;) ... but in order for it to be uploaded, there needs to be a prize you get for winning it. Yes, right now it's prizeless, and I'd like you to tell me what you'd like it to be. Make sure you download the quest before you post :D

I was the first official tester of this quest! :D

I'd say the prize would be a glove, or maybe a better shield...

Not gralats, those are from events, and plus they're already easy to get from fishing/mining :o

I haven't downloaded it yet, but it's made by Pago, so it must be cool.

actually, I got this quest about two weeks ago.

but I still think the prize should be a better shield. (faster travelling)

Nah, it's too early for the liz shield... maybe a good prize would be something with no intrinsic value like a cow NPC?

You could get a cow pet

Lizard Shield would be great. It doesn't really make you STRONGER, just helps getting around the huge map.

I meant the mirror shield.

FatherDante

The mirror shield is actually weaker than the newb shield.

Zulithe

I would say make the prize the new under-development JUMP NPC!

But i'm sure it will have its OWN quest, as valuable as such an NPC would be.

And I thought Level 2 shield (mirror) WAS stronger than the n00bie shield? Its weaker? WHAT UP WIT DAT!?

My opinion: the prize should be a bottle, We should implement a bottle & net system for catching butterflies and things and sell them/trade/convert them to items like healing potions. Something interesting!

OH! How about... you get a BOTTLE full of MILK like in the zelda games? Then after you drink the milk you keep the bottle.

Or bottles of water that can fill .5 a heart

I'd say a refillable milk bottle would be the best prize, or perhaps an NPC that would allow you to call a personal horse that looks like a cow for riding.

Pago

Sounds good :D ... how about a cow NPC that you can ride around like a horse, and it gives you milk? I don't know if I could code that, but if you think you can, you're more than welcome to... heh

Anyway, if a cow NPC prize is either illegal or impossible, i think a glove would be good (if it opens another quest), or maybe even a shield increase. But I like the ideas so far, keep up the good work! ;)

The mirror shield is supposed to be better than the level1 shield, but it isn't. The reason? Because it's bugged.

When a shot hits the newbie shield, it bounces off and no damage is taken. When a shot hits the mirror shield, it's supposed to bounce and hit the other direction. But it doesn't work, you can't hurt people or baddies with the deflected arrow.

However, if a shot hits you while you have the mirror shield and you're moving, it's likely to still hurt you. I don't know exactly why, but I think because you see the shot bounce off and you walk into it. If you have the newbie shield, it won't. That's why the newbie shield is better. Actually, it makes a big difference. the newbie shield is much better.

Pretty lame, ey? They should fix the mirror shield. :\

Yes i think a cow NPC would be great you could ride it but it doesn't go as fast as a horse and you can call it and get some milk to heal you but it has to fill up its milk after a few uses

FatherDante
03-21-2001, 02:03 PM
Any one of those would be nice...

I like the idea for a milk bottle as a prize. You could take the milk bottles to any cow in graal and use it to fill it with milk. Then, wherever you go, you can use the milk bottle once to recover, say, 2 hearts.

good idea dante

FatherDante
03-21-2001, 03:01 PM
Well, I was just elaborating on the ideas of Zulithe, Gabriel, and Crono.

Tolerian28
03-21-2001, 03:55 PM
Yeah i like any idea that has something to do with milk.........mmmmmmmm miiiiiiillk

Pago
03-21-2001, 08:02 PM
The only problem is... i don't know if I could code that ;)

But I like the idea, getting a bottle that allows you to get milk from all the cows. Does Stefan read these boards? heh

FatherDante
03-22-2001, 03:04 PM
If you ask Stefan to script something for you, chances are he'll do it gladly. Also, anything he helps with is much more likely to get put on the server. :)

Pago
03-22-2001, 07:53 PM
Ok, heh... I'll try to catch him the next time he gets on :-)

Lycia
03-22-2001, 08:30 PM
Haha, funny quest.

FatherDante
03-22-2001, 10:40 PM
haha funnny- but I don't like how cows die after you've fed them. ;_;

But, probably, the harder the better. People have time to try it until they win.

Bah, its a game Dante.

What do you mean? I didn't say anything at all even critical!

Pago
03-23-2001, 08:07 PM
I'll post a little poll now:

Who has beaten the cow quest? I almost did, but then the timer ran out (It's even harder with Tyhm's cows) :)

Fai
03-23-2001, 08:16 PM
I just did.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:07 PM
I.. uh... gave it a coouple tries than quit. But I almost beat it the second time, and the first I didn't really understand what I was doing. So I think I can get it next time, if I try again!

Lycia
03-24-2001, 02:18 AM
I know that, but I was voicing my opinions.

Pago
03-24-2001, 09:39 AM
Oh wait... I just beat it! With 25 seconds left on the clock, too. :D

I'm so proud (heh..)

Fai

It was easy just block arrows and hope that when you run to get bushes they don't get shot.
