Newbie tags

Postby Faroukel » Thu Aug 10, 2017 11:32 am

Hi all,

Noticed that newbie tags don't seem to 'wear off' any longer. It used to be after something like 10 hours it would pop off.

Few questions;

do players need a newbie tag for access to helpline?

do newbie tags still junk certain items upon a players death? such as starting container, ect?

when someone has a newbie tag set, do they still see another players mentor tag? if the newbie tag is removed, do players still see the mentor tag?

any other features in regards to the newbie tag?

I made a mod a while back to make the newbie tag wear off after 24 hours... or maybe 48. I don't remember at the moment. Newbies do not see a [mentor] tag in game, though all guests see a [guide] tag in the guest lounge if you have it.

Yes, the newbie tag is required to access the helpline.

I'm not sure about the newbie death question. I'd have to do some testing.

The time for the tags to wear off is meant to keep counting when logged of or only while IG?

Only while playing. You can take it off yourself with the 'set newbie' command if you like.
