I support either boats working fully or 24/7 translocators.

If the intent is to have project1999 be closer to what eq was in 1999, then the translocaters need to be on timers. This is not about downtime or anything like that because if it were, then we'd have to change most of code and database. This is about getting this as close to classic as we can, not about making this into a modern mmorpg.

Oh, and to nerd rage:

I just died waiting for the OOT Translocator to spawn.

In classic, I'd have been on the boat and this wouldn't have happened. lulz. Died twice now.

Go, go evil race!

Edit: Thanks for porting me, Vonyor.

every 10-15min, it simulates boats better. most people will vote don't change because it's natural to be lazy.

I never said traveling should be easy. The population is low; therefore, it takes quite sometime to find a generous person to teleport.

It should have been a.) left alone, b.) get the boats functioning or c.) have the timer as it is now, but alter the "spawn points" of the translocators. Evil races should not have to be ported into trouble. I was aggroed immediately as I was translocated in.

Translocater says, "Hail, and well met, weary traveler! Would you like to [stand around for twenty minutes roleplaying and reliving one of the more drab instances of EQClassic], or would like to [port the fuck to OOT now]?"

Seriously, I am 100% behind letting anyone who wants to sit and wait 10-20 minutes before they translocate to wherever they are going do just that. The amusing thing is, they can do this without sadlling the masses with the same fate.

Honestly, if I'm a level 17 gnome magician sitting on the docks maxing my fishing before i make my way to OOT, is making my own fun enough? Do I really need to cock-block the naked human next to me who's on a corpse run?
