KI Released

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

The Eder D’Uru KI has been released. It features buddy listing and marker manipulation. You can get started by fetching a KI from the machines in the rest area at the Great Shaft in the Eder D Uru sim, or the city in the Eder Gira sim (or a great many other locations that have decided to host KI dispensers)

You can begin calibrating your KI by touching one of the machines in the Great Zero in the Eder Gira sim. (you can reach it by teleporting to the Eder Gira sim and clicking on the teleporter to the Great Zero)

Once calibration has begun, you will be required to find many of the markers placed on the Eder Gira and Eder D Uru sims. Markers will appear when you are within 10 meters of their location, and will emit a pinging sound. (the marker button on your KI will also turn red) In order to collect the marker, you will have to touch (click) it.

Once you have found a complete set of markers (as shown by the lights around the perimeter of your KI) you will need to return to the Great Zero and click the machine again. When you have completed both sets of markers, (and touched the GZ machine a final time) you will be allowed to create marker missions, send them to other players, and open missions sent to you by other players.

More missions may be released at a later time to allow you to complete the calibration of your KI and see polar coordinates in some sims.

Adding Buddies:

To add somone to your buddies list, locate their name in the age players list, and click it, this will display a screen showing their online status, and an arrow will appear next to the buddies list entry on the left. Click the arrow to add the person to your list.

Mission editing:

You can create a mission by pressing the + marker icon on your KI when you are not editing another mission. Pressing this button while editing a mission will add a marker at your current location. (when you first create a mission, a marker will be added at your current location as well) You will be prompted to say a name for the mission on channel 5. This is done by typing “/5 ” and the name you wish to use.

Markers can be deleted from a mission by clicking the D’ni zero symbol to the right of their name while editing a mission. You can only edit missions that you created.

You can change the name of a mission by opening it from the missions menu and clicking on it’s title, which will prompt you to say a new name on a chat channel. (5) This is done by typing “/5 ” and then the name. Markers can be renamed the same way when in edit mode, though clicking on them will also bring up the map, showing you the location of the marker.

Sending Missions to other players:

You can send missions to other players by locating the player’s name in the buddies or age players list and clicking them, this will place their name in the box on the top left of the menu area. Then, browse to the mission you want to send, and open it. An arrow will appear next to the box with the player name in it. Click this arrow to send the mission to that player.
