Challenge Points and Coats

Sleuth Admin
Sleuth Admin

As of now, Multi Sleuth Showdowns and Treasure Hunts both award Challenge Points to the winner(s). As you have no doubt noticed, Challenge Points are a requirement for purchasing a new type of equippable item, COATS.

Additional Notes:

* Coats are gendered! You can only buy or wear a coat that fits your detective's gender. (maybe this rule will be relaxed the next time Mardi Gras rolls around).

* Although it is possible to play a Multisleuth Showdown by yourself, you will only earn Challenge Points if there is at least one other opponent. So round up your friends!

* On the other hand, the winning agency in a treasure hunt will all gain Challenge Points, regardless of how many other agencies are competing.

* You cannot currently store a coat in an agency equipment locker. This feature is coming in the next few days (still haven't decided if they will take the same number of slots as a gift).

* You cannot currently take a coat on or off. This may be added in the future, but I haven't decided whether or not it would be preferable that you could do this.

* Coats do not currently degrade. Sometime over the next few days, they will start degrading with usage. By usage, I mean that anytime you gain a benefit from a coat, it will wear out a bit. Eventually a coat will fall apart.

The Pawn Broker has some nice coats - I wonder if I can make friends with him he'll sell me one cheaper :)

Do coat standing points count towards the 25 points needed in a treasure hunt?

I fixed a couple bugs with the standing bonuses awarded by coats. The extra standing points should now currently count towards all these:

* Bonus Extra Questions for clammed townies
* Cases available from new case givers
* FA wiping price from the Fixer (for those of you who say there is no point in the Doylesburgh coat... although admittedly the price discount still caps out).
* Several miscellaneous missions

Coats do not currently help with treasure hunts. They probably should, so assume I'll add that one soon.

Awesome. Ben, could you possibly fix these as well:

When a player first bought his/her first coat, let say the lab coat, assuming she have 5 challenge points, after buying the lab coat, he/she should have left with 4 challenge points, right? But his/her bio showing 5, but when he/she sell his/her lab coat to buy another coat that costs 5 challenge points, it doesn't allow him/her to do it, could you help on this matter?

In showdown, encoded note couldn't be picked up.

My guess on this topic ...is the number of challenge points on the detective page is the 'total amount ' of challenge points ever collected.
This number is to be shown on the still to be created leader board.

You don' get your challenge point back when you sell your coat.

If i am right. Ben should only make a: current amount value next to the total amount.

But then again he knows best ;)

'The error screens' in showdown are a bigger problem.
It happens with yellow notes and encoded notes.

Ben,

Would like to confirm with you on the following coat:

Pawn Broker selling Men's Trench
- Durability: Flimsy
- Condition: Perfect

Women's Trench
- Durability: Average
- Condition: Perfect

Is it meant to be that way or maybe you accidently set wrong durability to Men's Trench? ^_^

I really love the Tux Coat sell by Mayor, but wonder how long would it last. ^_^

Would you consider removing Reporter, Desk Sergeant & Morgue Assistant from TH favor needed, but add in the following townie:

Locksmith
Stylist
Facilitator
Janitor

As for Pawn Broker and Fixer, its up to you to decide ^_^

Regards,
Joseph
