Disguise Login: New Nexus

Unread post by Tsidkenu » Wed Oct 10, 2018 8:28 pm

As a player that has characters that utilise disguise extensively, I cannot begin to express my frustration with having to remove it and expose my 'true identity' to another dozen+ Nexus lingers in order to enter the game world.

Now I understand why the check is there, to prevent death avoidance. So my proposal is not to remove it. My proposal is that instead of being told "You're in disguise, please remove it" that I was given the option, "You're in disguise, would you like to transfer to a discreet login zone to remove it?"

This way I can have a place to remove my disguise where I'm alone, do the necessary login checks, and then proceed to my choice of respawn location and reapply my disguise. It might need an additional check and/or multiple 'rooms' to make sure there is never one person there at a time. People who don't care about such things can simply do as the current nexus requires and enter the game world. I don't happen to be one of them.

Thanks for consideration.

What is proposed won't work as you'd hope if you're trying to avoid ooc knowledge on it. There's several relatively easy ways to skin that.

As for the death system, that check can be modified

I'll take that as a "no".
