Those familiar with clients, or users of MUSHclient might like to try-out 4D's own plugin. With this plugin you'll get a better view of the surroundings as you'll see the graphical map of the surrounding rooms at the right part of the client.
At the bottom you'll find different bars that represent your remaining hp, mana-points and movepoints.
And of course there are some extra's like the avatars, the buttons that show you have a spell casted upon you, etc.
The steps to follow to download and install the client/plugin can be found here.
Special thanks goes to KaVir from God Wars II who made this specific plugin for 4D.
A bigger screenshot to see how the client looks like can be found following the next link.
The instructions on how to add the chat-capture which can be seen on the screenshot can be found on the forum or at the following link.
The winner of our Halloween Story contest is Darvus, his story can now be found on the website using the following link Stories.
Seeing there were no other competitors, all prizes go to him.
If there are other people who have written short stories and want to share them, send them by email to Diandra and they'll get added to the same page.
Also as last reminder, the Halloween Zone will close this weekend, so if you still want a feel of the special atmosphere in the Del'Vante house, be sure to visit it now before the hungry ghosts and other strange creatures take over the area.
There has been some complaints about the Trainers being too hard to find for new players. So to remedy that, we've done a few changes today:
1. From now on all the Class Guildmasters teach all the Tier 1 skills and spells for their respective Class.
2. These Guildhalls are now only open to players of the right Class.
3. The Opas and the Potion of Seeing that are sold in the Esper Guild can now also be purchased at Palpatine's Bar in the Spaceport.
Nothing else has been changed. All the other Trainers still teach the skills and spells that they used to teach. You still need to seek out those to train the skills and spells from Tier 2 upwards.
The info on the website will be changed presently to reflect this change. The helpfiles are also updated now.
With the implementation of the new Training system, the Trainers, who can teach you skills and spells, have now been scattered throughout the Realms.
Though to make things a bit easier, the list of all the Trainers have been published on our website and this per Dimension and Zone. This list can be found following these directions: Features, Location Trainers.
The page Skills and Spells also gives an explanation on how you can recognize these trainers.
Or for those that prefer a direct link to the Trainers, just click here.
For those who like to read, I can hereby announce that most of the background stories of our players who asked for an RP-flag over time, have been published again. A list of the characters can be found at the following link: http://4dimensions.org/node/PlayerStories.
In case your story isn't there but you still have a copy somewhere, please send it to Diandra.email@example.com and I'll get it published as soon as possible.
And for the people, who currently don't have the RP-flag but want to obtain one, write up an IC-background story of how your character got into the Realms of 4D and send it to the same emailadress. If you need any help or pointers, ask one of the RPL's ingame.
Once your story is approved, your character will get the RP-flag ingame and your story will be published on the website.
As you can see in the left column we've got a working forum again. The way to use the forum is a bit different than our previous forum, so it will take some getting used to.
Everyone can read the forumposts, but only registered users to the website will be able to post. If we get too many spammers posting adverts and such, we'll have to change that. That would mean that only approved, registered users will be able to post. People who then have used their charactername will be approved faster then others.
