    MA gave us a new "feature"?

    Anyone else found that they can no longer click on the mining rod (or drag the little action window off the mining rod) anymore to start mining - it just says "this claim is owned by"

    This is a pain in the backside, when you hunt you can still click on the mob to shoot it so why have they broke this ???! I checked the options to see if something had changed but nothing had...

    for me it is much more important to be able to see who's claim is than be able to loot it through click.

    ffs, what difference makes in extracting?

    Hi,
    With the introduction of the new items info system, the setting of the interaction menu has been updated. When you target an item, you will get "items info" as default first choice in the interaction menu. We do understand that this might cause some initial confusion for some participants, but this feature facilitates the general interaction with items. To avoid problems while excavating, we advise you to either use the quickbar or the interaction menu, which you reach by clicking the right mouse button.

    Regards,

    Strangely this new undocumented feature doesnt affect hunting if you click on the little window it shoots (if that is whats equipped obviously lol). Its a serious pain to line up your avatar now with the mining claim rod now.

    I do love their suggestion to use the right mouse window - say to mine a considerable lyst or so? lol - do MA even PLAY their own game?

    Sorry, I wasnt very clear - I normally mine looking down at my avatar. Before this VU - you could drag the little window off the claim rod, select your extractor from the quick "bug" bar and then click on the window. Regardless of which direction your avatar was facing it would turn to and walk towards your claim rod and start extracting. Now, you have to align yourself up with the claim rod manually to begin extracting. To me, this is cumbersome, if you had to do the same to hunt a mob it would drive you nuts!

    EDIT: Yep, but I prefer the 3rd person perspective

    actually, is up to anyone to build his style.

    mining, i run 3rd person and extract 1st person view.

    hunting i do both 3rd person and 1st person view.

    is rly easy, when u want to extract, just press Z and u go first person ffs

    Now, just because YOU play that way, doesnt mean EVERYONE wants to play that way. The change was UNDOCUMENTED,and in my opinion, not required or helpful.

    Does it really bother you to the point of saying FFS in both your replies?

    You always had the ability to see who owned the claim - right click on the claim and it was under (If memory serves correctly) interaction - item info.

    Again, in your same thread a different way of finding out the same info, but why would you need to know who owns the claim if you just found it?
