View Full Version : Zodiac Update: Yen Clone

Wewt guyz!
Update to Zodiac!

I released the Yen Clone. It's basically a baddy with 201,527 HP, 1337 MP, and 10101 damage and defense. It's aggro radius covers the whole level, and it can walk over walls. It can create black holes and cast spells such as Purple Halo, Quake II, Slow, and Gleipnir Bound. When it's HP is brought below 100,000 it will automatically cast Huge Heal, which heals it for 1010101 HP. In the odd case it dies, it will respawn and give everyone in the general area a debuff that increases damage dealt to them by 15000% for two hours.
If it can't find a target to attack, it will choose a random player on the server and warp to them (regardless of whether or not they're in a no-PK zone)
Killing this baddy ten times in a row will yield a Gods Blade, which has 200-some attack power, a multitude of stat enhancements, and requires level 51.

I hope to be able to release some more updates as soon as possible, possibly EXP loss on death.
Enjoy!

Are you serious that it 'hunt' players by warping to them?

Yen
01-13-2007, 01:37 AM
Yes, if it can't find a target in it's level it warps to a player in another level.

Like suddenly to the gmap outside osl, or is it limited where it can warp?

Yen
01-13-2007, 01:42 AM
It can warp anywhere a player is. Including no-PK zones.

It could originally warp to OSL, but I decided to limit that.

What's Purple Halo and Gleipinir Bound? :x

Yen
01-13-2007, 01:46 AM
Purple Halo is the 65535 damage spell that makes any Dark-element damage you take increase by 1000%.
Gleipnir Bound is the colorful chain that stops you from doing anything for 10 seconds.

Chompy
01-13-2007, 01:47 AM
Yen, can you post screenies, I have no idea where it is xD bah, can be hard hunting for it >_>

BTW, what is the most hp a player can have?

Yen
01-13-2007, 01:52 AM
The max HP value is 9999.

Don't worry, if you haven't noticed.. It heals more HP than it has when you damage it.

Then the players cracked it, I miss being a corrupt staff member.

I don't think it was a smart addition, or is this just to grab a few more players?

No, it's more of an 'I'm irrate and feel like doing something fun' addition.

Who cares what level the Gods Blade requires? The clone heals more HP than it has when you hit it.

You're the only person I know that's stupid enough to take a server that's apparently quite popular and risk ruining it by adding stupid additions that will only drive players off just so you can get a cheap laugh or two.

So let me get this straight, Yen is abusing his staff powers to make a godlike NPC/baddy which kills everything in sight and even makes it quite obvious on the public forums and no one has said anything?

Update: After respawning from a killing blow from the Yen Clone, you're warped to a random server.

Lord Sephiroth
01-13-2007, 09:52 PM
Now you get warped to another server? Maybe that Global Ban dislodged something in your brain, Yen. How long does he have to push the envelope of corrupt ******* before one of these globals says or does something.

Yen
01-13-2007, 09:57 PM
They're server warped so they don't decide to run outside and get owned by it as soon as they respawn. Instead, they have to take time to log back on Zodiac. By that time, the clone has moved on, and I don't have to listen to them cry because it's camping a door.

killerogue

You're missing the big picture. I never said that it was illegal I said it was stupid.

Aside from his "God-Like" NPC that's killing anyone it sees in it's level by warping to them and owning them, now it's warping them to other servers. So not only is Yen losing playercount due to his lame-**** NPC, now he's making players go to different servers. How long is it before someone gets PK'd by this monstrocity and just decides to stay away? It's a dumb addition.

Oh I'm sorry, It's a good addition if you want to ruin what you have, Yen is apparently good at that.

NPC server crashed, or Yen d/ced it! I haven't had this much fun since UN had noobs with trainers LOL!

Yen
01-13-2007, 10:34 PM
Both.
Ajira crashed it, then I disconnected it. But the script crashing it was being called on creation, so it did it again when it started back up.
So I disconnected it again and went to remove the script through FTP, but then the server totally froze on me while I was opening FTP.

Why is Yen doing this?

From an analytical perspective, to get some attention.

He thinks that destroying the server he spent so many months working on, which in the end would result in him wasting months of his life for nothing, would get Stefan to apologize to him, as if Stefan even had a reason to apologize to him.


Yen knows if he starts deleting files he'll get global banned, so he's trying to ruin the server without having to delete it, it seems. He's gone completely mad, he clearly needs to see a psychiatrist.

01-14-2007, 03:12 AM
Yeah there's nothing wrong with this Baddy... Its a developers "Easter Egg" a lot of games have this, and perhaps instead of flaming and accusing Yen of being corrupt, you ought to log on the server and see how this baddy actually works.

He doesnt spawn every 5 seconds, one rarely sees this clone. It's kind of like the Diablo 2 game, the Diablo Clone.

While I don't really have a problem with this random creation, I think the random warping to players is a bit much. If the someone runs into the creature and dies, that's one thing, but having absolutely no control over it is pretty ridiculous.


explain ? He wants a lifetime subscription to PlayGirl, 1-year's supply of K-Y Jelly, and complete and absolute control of Graal. You have 1 hour.

To try and ruin Zodiac to get Stefan to do whatever you want? If Stefan actually does, then that's another sad story, but that doesn't excuse the fact that you're acting like a child, crying when they're ignored simply because they want some attention.


So Stefan does whatever it is you want, but is it worth possibly losing your staff and the players, thus killing the server and all the time you spent on it in the end?


People wouldn't throw the homosexual card at you if you wouldn't stop giving them reason to, not that it's right in the first place.

You got yourself into this problem, so the person you should be mad at is yourself, not Zodiac, not Stefan, and definitely not Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris slept with Gambet's mom last night.

Gambet my friend, aren't you just a tad wee bit sour over the fact that Yen has gotten more attention from Stefan in the short while he's been developing then you and the countless of other developers in the many years playing?

I mean, Gambet... Yen may have his imperfections, but one of them sure as hell isn't his scripting abilities,

cant say the same for you.

Gambet
01-14-2007, 05:40 AM
I work on Zone, why would I need to pull a scandal to get Stefan's attention?

Sorry for being blunt, but, what the hell is Yen mad at and what the hell does the whole thing have to do with Stefan? Is there something I'm missing? Because one post from Stefan changes this whole thing into some conspiracy apparently.

And throwing the 'homosexual card' is simply retarded in my opinion, that has nothing to do with anything important.

Because I work on Zodiac and know what the hell Yen was trying to do this whole time?

He was trying to get Stefan's attention this whole time, which apparently worked, which tells him that the next time he wants Stefan's attention, all he has to do is threaten to ruin Zodiac.


Yen believes him asking adolescents to get on web cam is not a form of sexual harassment, and thus is flipping out for being global banned for 14 days because he feels it was unjust, and now he wants Stefan to comply with whatever the hell it is he wants, which Yen mentioned on RC but I won't get into details, you can ask him about that yourself.

Yeah that's right, Yen wanted "appreciation" from Stefan, that's what it was, and probably a GST job.

I think this just proves everyone elses case more that he shouldn't become any sort of a global if he resorts to kiddy tantrums to get his own way. Definatley not mature.

Au contraire.. Someone needs to log onto Zodiac and check the logs, there's a ton.
