  1. Up to now sickles are not craftable items and you can harvest plants without them by using the F key. Will this change? Maybe, maybe not.
  2. Welcome to the forums. The black skin looks like a problem with your graphic driver. Make sure to keep it updated. Regarding the connection problem, if you contact support@crowfall.com they should be able to help you pretty fast. Please let us know what the problem was, once it is solved. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  3. As owner of a kickstart backer sapphire bundle, you own Alpha-1 Test Access to the playtest servers, due to the sum total you spent on crowfall a digital copy of the game, as part of your backer bundle a digital copy of the game, as part of the physical collectors edition, which is part of your rewards You can gift any giftable object to any other account, with both accounts using 2-factor-authentification. The digital game copy itself is not (yet) giftable. Since a lot of accounts already own more than one game copy, it is most likely that there will be a system that will allow us to pass over unused game copies to others and the team already said that they will try to get there. The kickstarter bundle you bought is tradeable via gifting. If you consumed (=unpacked) it, you can contact support@crowfall.com and ask them to rebundle it if you still have all the originally contained parts of the bundle on your account. Even if you sell your bundle, you won't loose your access to the pre-launch tests. Access to the playtests is based on the sum total you spent. You would need to buy a game copy then to have access to the final game, though. This said, there is no intended way to share test access with others (though Gordon once said, that he won't oppose to some kind of friend referral at one point - and though people can still apply to a free beta test by simply registering an crowfall account on the website afaik). Theoretically you should be able to let your bundle be rebundled, gift this bundle to someone else, let this person re-gift all the giftable contents to you (including the collectors editon which contains a game copy) and then you both would be able to both test now and to play the final game. Your friend may need to contact support after getting the bundle, in order to be entitled, though. Theoretically. The best way to get friends into the game may still be to just suggest to register an account to get a free beta test-access. And maybe to tell them to join a guild on the webste before buying the game to be able to use the special one-time guild-member discount. Hope this helps, and whatever you do have fun, good luck Kraahk
  4. Welcome (back) to the forums. It might be useful to understand that the passive skill training system is only one of several parts of the game that contribute to character stats and abilities (like vessels, levels, talents, discipline-runes, equipment, consumables). Other than talents or discipline runes for example (which unlock abilities and can only be achieved by active playing), skills only provide supplementary bonusses. They need to be understood as a form of gaining general experience with your soul in combat and crafting and nature studies over time, that will enable you to do better, no matter what body you use. Besides the accumulation principle (gathering skill points for several days, so no need to be online the moment a skill is done) the skill system will also include catch-up mechanics after release, provided by tradeable skill tomes (players can put unused skill points into tomes and trade them with others). All of this put together, there should be no significant problem for people who want to solely focus on active gameplay in the final game. Regarding refunds: Refund policies depend on your national laws. If in doubt, contact support@crowfall.com. Tell them from where you are, which package you bought, the date you did it and which country you live in/are citizen of. Besides that you can always sell retired backer bundles to the officially trusted traders anhex.com and markeedragon.com. You can find more informations about that in the FAQ -> trusted traders. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  5. Some general thoughts about this first. (and please note, when I say "you", i mean it in general and not you personally) There have been two ways to get a stronghold. Buying a backer bundle that included one or more strongholds Buying a specific stronghold bundle, while they were available. In both cases - back in the days - it has been made clear, that these bundles were meant to contribute to the funding of the later game; to make sure the company will be able to make it. Of course those bundles contained stuff for the later game, but nothing of immediate importance regarding p2w aspects. And of course nobody (including the team) knew what would precisely be what in the final game anyways. And above that, as soon as the funding was done, those bundles have been removed from the shop. Besides from contributing to the backing of the development, if you bought a single stronghold bundle, you may have wanted to have the regarding building/title in the later game. You will get that. So you should be good. if you bought a backer bundle, the earlier you backed, the more hilarious is what you will get out of it. At kickstarter the bundles already contained multiple times the value of their price. Additionally, later the value of the strongholds increased dramatically after they did some development and were able to do more than just guessing. Like, a small castle bundle was originally calculated with 250$, but now the content value is 2,450$. The usual KS bundle value was 4 times the price. So if you bought a bundle with a small castle in it, you actually only paid 62.5$ for this stronghold. I don't see why anybody should now be able to get (2450/15=) 166 month VIP tickets for a spent 62.5$. And besides, 62.5 is a sum people who bought a package that included a castle shouldn't get a headache from. Just saying. This said, when the new world sizes and the island principle first came up, Todd mentioned that it would theoretically be possible to use this system to make campaign worlds out of EK's. There had been discussions about this before, because some people always liked the thought of being able to wage war against other guilds by attacking their kingdoms. But the island principle finally opened the opportunity. Todd didn't exclude the possibility of EK wars. I would assume that it is very unlikely to be included for launch (much more important stuff to do). But since the technology is there, I think there is an extremely good possibility that it may be included in a future extension. By the way, stronghold bundles are expired shop bundles ... and by this can be legally traded with the trusted traders anshex.com and store.markeedragon.com. Though currently only markeedragon is offering (and sometimes buying) them. So, if someone doesn't see any other use for an owned stronghold, this may be a possibility. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  6. mine was an addit. yours was a removit. ninja refered to the stealth and hiding thing you did. how can i ever trust you again now, huh? no wait, that would imply that i once ... wah, never mind.­čÖä and just to stay on topic ... bonds arise everywhere. we just delivered a strong testament to this. so, guys 'n gals, even if you are not ready to join a guild yet (but you really should), try to get connected. use the ingame chat, the discord channels or even the forums ... but get connected. this game is meant to be played with others against others. not playing with someone means playing against anybody else. don't do that. don't be a lone soul. find your bonds. just saying. don't complain afterwards, if you don't try it.
  7. And even if you lost, cheer up. You contributed to the success of someone else. Well done either way. Yay! edit: oh mandalore, you evil ninja editor... tsuh...
  8. The /who command has to be gone before launch. Or at least to be limited heavily (like only be usable in EK's or only showing guild members in the guild channel ... something like that). No doubt about that. However, "right now" /who is an interesting function to see how many people are online on which side and to allow people to make some statistics on their own. I think right now it opens more opportunities than it causes harm. Btw. multiboxing is a different topic. Worth an own thread. Even though it has already been discussed several times throughout the years. Just let's try to keep things easy for the ACE team. Just saying.
  9. In case you are referring to the octagonal castle towers, these Generally they are part of the castle packs (the keep packs only have the square towers). I didn't test 5.8 much, but as far as i have seen, the octagonal towers haven't been provided in the packages during 5.8. They are listed in the crafting menu, though. -> Stonemasonry -> Geomancy Architecture -> "Castle Defense: Tower 3x1 (Octagonal)". In 5.7 you would have needed a total of 636 wood, 80 wood or stone, 229 stone, 220 ore (all non-basic) and 58 hide and 5 dust. The numbers may have changed a bit, didn't check that nor wether they are indeed buildable. But yeah, that would be the general way to go. In case you are referring to octagonal building, like this Last time i checked it a few weeks ago, there have been some problems with the tower connectors, sometimes not allowing diagonal connections. So you can only try until it somehow works or wait until it gets fixed. Hope this helps Kraahk
  10. We don't know anything definite about how titles will work. Even in the old times we didn't get any real answers about this. Those titles will most likely be connected to your specific EK status. Last thing i heard about it was this: I am pretty sure that we all will be able to achieve those titles ingame.
  11. The capture point is given when it counts as captured. Which is at 1/4 of the circle. Unfortunately no (additional) point is given after completion (which in my eyes would make sense). So yeah, there currently seem to be no other reason for finishing, but to make any conquering attempt by other parties take longer.
  12. Sehr sch├Âner Newsletter. Nebenbei erw├Ąhnt, auf eurer Twitch Seite wurden die Namen der Streamer teils ein wenig durcheinander gew├╝rfelt. Vielleicht k├Ânnt ihr das wieder in's Reine bringen, damit die Zuschauer auch die Streamer besser wiederfinden k├Ânnen (z.B. wird CrusaderW in seiner Video├╝berschrift als iThrowTrainz angegeben, der aber im vorherigen Stream auftritt).

    Welcome to the forums. 1. Mass production is in the making. There will be factories and we will be able to put thralls into them who then will take care of the mas production by using blueprints. 2. Yeah, would be cool. Don't see why this shouldn't happen. 3. No plans for minimaps that we would know of. Indeed the developers said they definitely won't make one (game design decision). That was a long time ago though and things may change. But i strongly doubt it in this case. 4. All items will be player made. Mobs will only provide resources. This also a game design decision. Players need to specialize and to cooperate with others. Hope that helps. Greetings Kraahk
  14. A least those items don't have a use for you maxed out vessel right now. There are plans for a salvaging system. Which was indeed part of the initial vision. You can already skill it, but there is no ingame function yet. So i'd say we need to wait for this system ... and then revaluate this topic. Maybe it will include such basic item, too (and i think it would be a good idea. Besides that, you are of course able to sell unwanted items. Right now public trading is not too common. But once trading EK's become more common and the system will allow buying orders (which is also in the plans), it should be more simple to get rid of unwanted stuff.
  15. We raised this question/suggestion before. The answer was that the current state of the crow fly is a provisionary state. JTodd doesn't like it himself, so it is most likely to be changed before launch. It just don't have any priority right now. Simply not important enough, while the current state is working good enough for now. Anyways, thanks for pointing it out again. It helps to keep it in mind. ­čĹŹ
  16. Everytime a jtodcoleman get's sick, a world get's destroyed. ­čś× After four years, I didn't think this would be possible at all. But well, recent circumstances prove differently. This is a sad day for all of us. Especially for jtodd of course. But yea, we are all suffering with you. Get well soon. For the sake of all of us. Including you. Don't allow the sacrifice of this one lost world to be in vain. ~freneticallywavingatoddflag~ ~sniff~
  17. I like winter. Less hot. Less mud. Less idiots outside. (Well, mostly due to less people outside - the general proportion may still be the same)
  18. There is only one trial. The trial of keep on testing.
  19. Welcome to the forums. The perfect way to get help about serious issues is to contact support@crowfall.com. But if you have a general question, most times the community will be able to help you, if you write it down in the community q&a subforum or in the official unofficial crowfall discord channel. Have fun and good luck Kraahk
  20. A little recommendation at this point: Try to register an account first, then join a guild. Right now, as a member of a guild your first purchase in the shop will have a 10% discount (including buying a game pre-sale package). If you have any questions about this, feel free to contact me. edit: and, you may "test" now. not "play" now. we are still in pre-alpha development. so you won't see the final game. but you can test it and help gathering data and share feedback to help make the final game the best it could be.
  21. Welcome to the crowd. Have fun and good luck and make sure to connect to your local discord family keep up to date.
  22. That's out-of-date information. The new info hasn't found it's way into the FAQ yet. They tested the abovementioned benefit, but came to the conclusion that this would look too much like pay-to-win. So they cancelled it.
  23. @JamesGoblin never left us.
  24. Kein Ding. Falls du keine passenden Parzellen findest, meld dich einfach bei mir. Ich hab zahlreiche Festungen und gebe die immer wieder mal ingame an interessierte Tester zum testen (mit dem n├Ąchsten EK reset kommen sie dann automatisch zu mir zur├╝ck).
