Notes on Recent Client Update with Publish 70, Booster Pack?

Update: Pictures of Gothic house tiles, Virtue Banners

Somebody asked me to take a look at some of the recent changes contained within the CLILOC files of the Classic Client, that we haven’t seen yet, or haven’t seen fully.

These are taken straight from the client files, with some clean-up work done by me to take into account formatting.

Old description of Magincia:
Magincia – Isle of Riches

Magincia is a fairly small island town known for the incredible wealth that it derives from the sea and from the practice of the magical arts. The city itself is beautiful to behold, with golden streets and majestic architecture. Honest tradesmen do not linger for long upon this isle, however, preferring to pass through the moongate upon its western edge in search of a more pleasing environment.

For those who seek to begin a career in Magincia, however, the city does offer guilds for fishermen and miners, and a modest collection of shops. Little in the way of danger ever finds its way here, but the moongate does offer abundant danger on its other side.

For the visitor, Magincia’s most impressive sites are its Parliament Building and the Temple to the Virtues – even if these are rarely practiced in the city.

Should an adventurer join the ranks of Magincia’s elite and purchase a ship, the docks to the south of the city offer access to the many other islands nearby.

Amenities: Baker, Bank, Counselors’ Guild, Healer, Inn, Jeweler, Magic Shop, Shipwright, Tailor, Tavern, Tinker

New Description, of New Magincia:
New Magincia – Razed and Reborn

New Magincia lies on the spot of what once was fairly small island town known for the incredible wealth that it derived from the sea and from the practice of the magical arts. The city itself was beautiful to behold, with golden streets and majestic architecture. Destroyed by daemons and later rebuilt, now New Magincia is famed for its lush gardens and the New Magincia Bazaar.

For those who seek to begin a career in Magincia, however, the city does offer guilds for fishermen and seafarers. Since its destruction and rebuilding, little in the way of danger ever finds its way here, but the moongate does offer abundant danger on its other side.

For the visitor, the town’s most impressive sites are its Public Gardens and the New Magincia Bazaar.

Should an adventurer join the ranks of Magincia’s elite and purchase a ship, the docks to the south of the city offer access to the many other islands nearby.

Amenities: Bank, Inn, Shipwright, Tavern


Text strings concerning Vendor/Bazaar Information – Old:
You lost the bid to extend your lease on Stall ~1_STALLNAME~ at the ~2_FACET~ Magincia Bazaar. You do not have a match bid in escrow at the Magincia Bazaar. Your hired merchant, if any, has deposited your proceeds and remaining inventory at the Warehouse in Magincia. You must retrieve these within one week or they will be destroyed

Text strings concerning Vendor/Bazaar Information – New:
You lost the bid to extend your lease on Stall ~1_STALLNAME~ at the ~2_FACET~ New Magincia Bazaar. You do not have a match bid in escrow at the bazaar. Your hired merchant, if any, has deposited your proceeds and remaining inventory at the Warehouse in New Magincia. You must retrieve these within one week or they will be destroyed.

On the last two, obviously only “New Magincia” changed, but it’s still interesting, since we are getting a glimpse of the bazaar system.

Since we were told at the last video House of Commons that we would know the booster pack when we saw it, I’m going to play it safe and say that the housing tile set and the tapestries are a part of it. It is possible that the housing tiles are going to be some kind of unified system for Magincia, where all houses are built using the same tiles, to help avoid the garishness of other densely-packed locations. Many of us did not want to see Magincia transformed into Luna.

I’ll be keeping a closer eye out on the changes as we move forward.
