Hey i just checked the Hood (which was empty) and then the House (which was not.) (These will be their new nicknames :lol:)
Why does the Hood only have the Nexus Book?


It's the opposite of the Fun House. The fun house is bright and lively. The Hood of Illusions is not. Think of the Hood of Illusions as more of a blank canvas onto which future events will paint.


"Bright and lively?" I was in last night to check it out and there was the typical avies standing around engaged in private chat. Not lively. I did see the video cam. Fun to see something unexpected there...but lively? I could see everything that was there (except the camera) anywhere in the cavern. People standing around. Wow. What fun. Make Shroomie wander through the hood and interact, then it'll be lively.


When did you go? =P

The fun house is not manned 24/7 by Grey Hats, and most of the hax only happen when a grey hat shows up, and only last for the people who are there at the time. =)

kaelis is correct. We cannot make 210 copies of ourselves (unlike our good friend Eddie) and be in the hood 24/7 to cater to your every whim. While on the subject of every whim, some request given over KI chat might be difficult or time consuming, or the GHs might be pouring over code and miss requests entirely. Don't think we're completely ignoring you the whole time--it just gets a little bit hectic.

I thought the Illusions hood was for special events, and the Fun House was open and whacky all the time. I waltzed in to see whacky. I got zombie avatars and people stuck to the walls one story up. I still love the work that went into the camera and laptop by the fountain, though.

I'm looking for a reason to put down my Kindle and stop playing Civ 5 on my computer and spend more time in cavern. So far, not tempted.

Yeah, Cyan did a pretty good job on it. :wink: Like the grey hats said, they can only use what is already there.

I may be the one mistaken, but I think either my understanding is incorrect or yours is. My understanding is that the Hood of Illusions is for scheduled events, and the Fun House is for un-scheduled events. In other words, it's not "wacky" all the time but any time you pop in, there's a chance something wacky will happen.

So, if you want to be certain of seeing wackiness, wait until an event is scheduled in the Hood of Illusions, then make sure to be there at that time. If you're just bored while playing Uru, pop into the Fun House some time and something might happen, or not.

The above is, of course, just my own understanding of the way it's supposed to work. I'm not Cyan and I'm not a Gray Hat, so don't take what I say as definite fact. /shrug

I'm corrected, then. Sounds like a plan.

Meantime, should anyone need voice work for any "event" in either of the hoods or their instances, let me know. Character voices, whatever. For example, the Shroomie hits the hood scenario I mentioned above...what if Shroomie gave a lecture? Would anybody show up?

I haven't been to either yet, though my brother tells me that neither of these two Hoods contains the word Bevin. Did the Grey Hats do that or was that Cyan? Just wondering…

I think it was RAWA. Bevin was always the incorrect word for the neighbourhoods anyway (there is only one Bevin) and hopefully it will be changed one day.

RAWA came up with the names...and neither of them contain [or would make sense with] the word "Bevin". So, when I made the hoods, I took the word Bevin out.

I like that idea too! We'll work on it. :)

Now that's about the coolest thing EVER.

Please inform vid. He deserves all the credit and happiness for making the Bevin Objection happen. ;) There's an explorer who has had a profound involvement and effect in the game without any special help.

I suppose that has to be done for each Hood individually, huh? So no hope of a Cavern-wide switchover anytime soon?

That is /so/ true.

There's a two-fold issue here. One is the names of existing hoods. The other is the names of newly created hoods. The client creates new hoods with the word Bevin in one of the fields on the AgeInfo node in the Vault. Changing that requires an updated client.

However [COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO THE GREY HATS AT THIS TIME] we've discussed a way to change all of the "Bevin"s to "Hood"s cavern-wide and and patch new hoods shortly after they're created. However, while the way of doing this is basically guaranteed to work without issue, we can't do it without Cyan's blessing...something I'm not sure I'd give if I was in their position.

All comes back to the "Just because it can be done, doesn't mean it will be done" principle.

Well we don't use the adminKI, per se, but many of the same principles apply.
