The Path of the Esteemed Furniture Maker

January 9, 2010

What the hell is up with the sky?

In my previous Everquest 2 post, I asked for assistance in making Everquest 2 a less foreboding place for me. Because of that post, I got to meet a couple of other bloggers, picked up an offer for a duo experience with another blogger, and received a tweaked ProfitUI interface, courtesy of Ysharros. (THANK YOU!!!).

Where does this leave Victor Stillwater, the intrepid blogger? In a nutshell, he’s in a far happier state now.

After a nine-and-a-half hour download, the Sony Station Launcher got the current trial version of the game up and running for me. This means that I got fewer fps hiccups than before. I also found out that this game works well in my country, which is definitely a good thing.

I’ve created a Froglok Monk named Civrotian, and he’s definitely an agile fellow with his kung-fu moves. I also managed to do everything there was to do on the starter island, getting myself a couple of collection quests, and some pretty good loot as well. Alas, my bags were perpetually full, though, which was a shame.

Anyway, my current goal, besides exploration and levelling, is to learn how to craft furniture. I like the idea of making my own stuff for a future house, so as long as I can earn the money for it, then I’d be having a fun time buying and decorating my own home.

As it stands though, I’ve yet to enter Qeynos properly, but will do so after I get some sleep.

Expect some more ideas and impressions of EQ2a few hours from now after I get some sleep and play in the actual Qeynos city.

In the meantime, a few basic questions:

What the hell is up with the sky in the above picture? How do I turn the camera around so I can take a screenshot of my character? Whose on Lucan D’Lere and wants to play?!

Also, a shoutout to the Halasian Empire guild of EQ2. You have an awesome member in the form of Ysharros, and I hope that I can join your guild eventually! 😀

    Hehe.

    Part of EQ2 lore is, bascially, the moon broke. You’re looking at the remnants of that breaking.

    Camera controls: (Default anyway)
    LMB: Look around without changing direction
    RMB: Look & change direction
    L+RMB: Walk in direction of the cursor
    Clicking Scroll wheel: Auto run toggle
    Scrolling the Scroll Wheel: Zoomy stuffs

    Our moon, Luclin, was somewhere you could travel to back in EQ. During the Shattering it blew up, sending bits of Luclin everywhere. You can see a chunk in the Forest Ruins, and also in crater lake in Antonica.

    Also, I have a sneaking suspicion that that fancy UI of yours is not set up to let you see any tells people try to send you. Been trying to talk to you!

      Heyo. Sorry about the not reading the tells thing. Thank you for helping me fix the tabs and whatnot a few hours ago. 🙂
