    Something very important! I understand that gold is rare, and we cannot get more gold from trader, so I guess we could buy them with coins?
    But I guess coins system is quite far away to be implemented right now.
    Or we can get a shipment of gold, but a small one, like 10-20 gold, where a seed costs around that. This will not overbalance things, because you need around 30-15 shipments to buy a proper tech, which is a very long time.
    And what is the difference between oak and pine tree? I see oak tree, doesn't drop 2 seeds, always 1 seed, while pine drops 2?

    There is a small animation delay when you slash very fast, tested with another player who was NKking and we both had same ping. I don't think it's involving lag but more likely settings in script or something of this nature.

    Also Geti god dammit remove wood hit box me and lost just had a fight with wood logs. ether make them only as a weapon when they are shoot from a cata (people will be able to load wood as ammo and shoot a few logs at a time like a long range shotgun which will damage only players sharks and bison and deal like heart damage) or just remove that mechanics

    Also make it so halls don't magically steal ammo from it sides. Hall should store ammo only if id drops directly on in the hall area. I don't kile how object bounce from trampolines it is annoying and it is even more annoying when it bounces ammo.

    Good to hear bombs switch teams when picked up now, the amount of times I've been tked and have accidentally tked with enemy bombs is a little silly.

    Edit: Also, yay sliding and log catapulting! Now all we need is catapulting logs on fire.

    I think the only annoying thing about throwing logs was not being able to shield properly from damage.

    I didn't add the collisions for logs but I may take it up with MM.
    Halls taking ammo in from sides means its given reliably on spawn. Dont leave stuff lying around if you dont want it to despawn.

    Yeah there's still some issues there, trying to figure out what's going on.
    Fwiw having the same ping doesn't mean much (could both have 300 ping), both having low ping would be meaningful though :^)

    Re: there being bugs with trees etc - we've looked into and fixed most of them but we have other partially complete changes mixed in, so can't patch until those are "done".

    This weekend may get a fairly shocking revamp of the archer, we'll see how testing goes. Think something to do with movement.

    Make at least like a 20 second delay it is annoying how people think that when you build shops over the hall and people make holes so that ammo drops down and hall steals it straight away. it is not helpful and annoying because I need to do 2 extra clicks which basically destroy ladders inside of my base. make it work better. :3

    It's pretty much a matter of enabling them as folders in base contain old sprites, they would perhaps need recoding and some changes but it's mostly gamemode coding that needs to be done, even if not, it should be not too hard for some who knows how to script to reimplement them as a mod.

    And I just got the hang of archery... but I guess if it helps with getting mauled by speedy knights [sliding/slashing/bomb jumping/etc], and the god awful delay on the knife stab. [I believe jabbing has almost no delay between input to hit detection]

    I just feel amazing, finally figuring out how to shot archer.

    Also geti it starts to get annoying when new players started to stack up logs in to halls not letting experienced players to take them, because they are noobs who don't know that logs are powerful weapons and will save the team in case of main hall danger.

    I still think boulders are more annoying than logs, people abuse the use of boulders as door rams, it hits door block once and destroys it, would be more valid if it damaged it, it's also impossible to kill anyone who uses a boulder, it touches you and you're turned into pancake.

    haha they should implement small boulders or rocks that are stackable up to 3-5 per slot and if thrown at a high speed damage 1/2-1 hearth :D
    Great vs those who charge slash instead they should shield or slide :D

    I kinda would like different ammo types for catapult, we still need trebuchet as a stationary siege weapon, you would unpack it from the crate and fire only projectiles such as boulders, kegs, corpses, players. This thing would allow to combat any type of skybridge, I think the main difference it would have from catapult is the firing angle, similar range but it should fire things more skywards.

    Please stop spamming NKKing. I didn't come here to see a Youtube video that annoys me.

    Aside from that:
    Trebuchet could be good but as you said, it would need to be unable to be placed on a skybridge as to stop crazy projectile spamming.
    I'm sure Log collisions will be fixed in time and I kinda like the current use of boulders anyway.

    So it is not taking a lot of page space.
    First of all I never spam. Learn what the word mean before using it and you can see that some of the most active thread visiors liked it so diplomatically speaking it isn't interrupting or annoying people who are regularly visiting this thread.
    Here I will help you.

    Forum spam is the creating of messages that are advertisements on Internet forums. It is generally done by automated spambots. Most forum spam consists of links to external sites, with the dual goals of increasing search engine visibility in highly competitive areas such as weight loss, pharmaceuticals, gambling, pornography, real estate or loans, and generating more traffic for these commercial websites. Some of these links contain code to track the spambot's identity; if a sale goes through, when the spammer behind the spambot works on commission.

    Next, Threbuchet is not my idea, sky brige placement already been said. It is not the place where you hope that it will be done you ether thell devs that it is a nice update and it has cool features, simply thanking devs for the update. Or you thell what is wrong with some new mechanics their added, these are not bugs, these are disbaclanced in some mechanics. you can post bugs here but it is not welcome by some off the other thread visitors.
