Those are the DRC characters (played by Cyan employees) that come to mind.


But they are playable, just not by an explorer.

Acting out characters (which was done before) i personally think is logistically unfeasible on a large scale. 2000+ people cant all come along on an expedition with an acted out character. Therefore 99% of the player base miss out on the story. That is why the large MMORPGs ALL use computer controlled NPC's.
My post was primarily a contradiction of this, since it won't be true for URU Live. The DRC aren't computer-controlled.

Nope.

On the UU shards, an admin could make him/herself a member of the DRC/Zandi/Rand/Yeesha by some magic they possesed (cough*adminKI*cough)

…i.e., by hacking the game. (How is adminKI not a hack?)

Because the admins ofthe shard need a way to control the server. Admin KI does that. No hacking.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know, AdminKI and UserKI are third-party hacks adding additional features, and unrelated to the Untìl Uru admin and server software.

We aren't talking about hacking UL because that is a big no no.

We are discussing whether the AdminKI for Until Uru is considered a hack or not.

I thought AdminKI was a custom KI you could only get if you were actually the admin of a shard. Someone (cyan? maybe.) sent it to you...

Or whatever. Anyway, it is NOT EASY to get an adminKI.

Look, the point is, you cannot walk around as Yeesha, whether in U:ABM, U:CC, UU or MO:UL, without hacking, where "hacking" means using inofficial modifications.

It is, but it was written by modders in the community not by Cyan, Cyan just gave it the Okay I believe.

Can we say "hacking" without people wanting to shun us forever?

Hacking is the process by which unofficial modifications are made to the game (such as creating fan-Ages, running TPotS Ages on an Untìl Uru server, the UserKI, the AdminKI, and many other utilities that many people use every day). These are always sent to Cyan before they are released in order to get approval.

Hacking is not a bad thing. I hack every day. The only thing I have broken is my End-User License Agreement (which Cyan has said is not a major problem for the offline game). Nothing illegal.

Myst Online: Uru Live will be different. There will not be any hacking, Cyan will not allow it. Hacking Uru Live is a good way to get yourself banned.
