That seems pretty darned vague to me.
That's my pet peeve there ... jelly pits skewing level feelings. I'm not a level scummer, so, I am tired of pits being the cause for a great level feeling, which is why I want them separated. So jelly pit hunters can have their candy, and I can have a reduced set of expectations for the level.


I don't know how hi-level Books are counted in level feelings, but if one already has a copy or that book or it is for a different type of caster (i.e., unusable), then I hope the code would discount that into the level feeling.

(new here)

i think i am getting why these levels feelings are so all over the map on what people want.

Maybe, have an option to change them to what you want. I know this requires programming but... i bet it's not so hard... we just all have lives away from here obviously.

Like the birth option that gives us the ability to get special feelings.

Maybe create your 2 or 3 ideas and make them all options at birth.

chosing one only.

I don't know how hard that would be to program up but... except for the really detailed ideas i've read I think it might be pretty easy....

1 for special / lose artifacts (this choice you could combine with one other below though)

1 for feelings for monsters only

1 treasures

1 combo (i personaly like someones double idea like "impending doom" but mixed with "superb" ... like "you have a superb feeling about this level, though you also have a strong feeling of impending doom"

except maybe a few of the veteran players (i aint one) would maybe have to go down some big list of monsters/items/whatevers and decide what is for what feeling... for say... a base standard powered level 25 character (whatever they decide one is)......


Which i guess adds another thing... maybe feelings need to not just be determined by a character's level or the things created in the dungeon floor but also somehow have a value adding up all the character's equipped items (mass artifacts giving the character a higher value for determing whether a feeling should be lowered in severity or made more toward the more special direction).

the veterans could come up with their list of the feeling names list.... and then the base level 25 standard character/items value decided... and go from there, up or down to generate what a particular character has as the feeling.

you could add whatever other ideas i've seen (or the masses i haven't seen) as further birth adjustments... like a submenu after a first standard feeling choice.

ideas tossed out depending on whether the dev people decide it isn't angband'ish.

sorry if i'm being redundant and i know i'm sucking up other's ideas..

just my 2 cents (from a new person).

Don't worry about apologizing, leave that to Obama. (Cheap-shot, I know...)

Just state your opinion and support it.

I concur with your idea of having Birth Options to set level feelings in the game---more than the current On/Off option. But, in accordance to what's most pressing for the coders, we may not get such for quite a while.

On the other hand, if you can code some yourself, make a change and throw it up for consideration, you might find acceptance easier.

Just for reference, the debates about level feelings have been going on for a long time.

A couple of people have responded, but I wanted to make it crystal clear.

There are several people who post to this forum who I know from other sources to have strong views on politics, but I would not know it from how they post here. You, on the other hand, have brought it up for essentially no reason in two separate threads. Quite apart from the potential divisiveness it introduces, you seem to assume that we are all American, when probably the majority of us are not.

If you do this again, I'll be personally requesting Pav to ban you.

As someone who doesn't really want to read about politics either I find the above messages far more intrusive, annoying and bullying than the throwaway one by Spacebux. It seems to come from long time posters desperate to throw their weight around towards the 'newbies' by the looks of it. Isn't there a friendlier way of saying this?

Someone else got totally hammered on here for putting coloured text into their post. What a terrible crime to commit - quick get Pav to ban them as well.

Actually that also was Spacebux. I just told him I couldn't read his texts, which was quite literally true. He seems to write readable text now, so message got thru, maybe not from my message, but from others.

If he learns from this one also, he's showing up some pretty good sense of how to deal with people in forums.

Politics don't belong here, and I do think that banning is just right thing to do for that, but not before warning. Consider this a Vulcan way of approaching things. Simple, no-bullshit, straight to the point comment of cause and consequence. Ultimately it obviously is Pavs decision, but continuous political crap IMO is not something we need to see from even one person, and worse yet would be political flame-war that someone would eventually start over it.

My apologies - it probably was a bit over the top. It was the second comment in a short space of time, and I didn't want it becoming a trend ... but I guess that's just my opinion.

I'm now really tempted to make my sig "Long time poster desperate to throw his weight around".

Well, not someone else

As a peace offering to Spacebux, here are some liberals he might like...
