    Default U22 Ruffled my feathers in Eveningstar

    Greetings,

    This is not a troll. Regardless of testing, the live environment always needs a shakedown cruise. No worries. However, I've found one thing that ruffles my feathers.

    In Eveningstar the birds at the mail box now emit tucann/parrot sounds. The birds are odd looking blue-ish raven-esq birds. The sounds don't match the birds' appearance.

    I was not sure where to post this, so I posted it here. Please bring back the pre-U22 birds/sounds.

    The mailbox in Eveningstar was my happy place and I've looked forward to sending mail there. I notice the sounds when I ran past the mailbox this morning and one of the birds heckled me. Sure enough I staked them out and the tucann/parrot sounds are coming from the mailbox birds.

    I know this request is for the birds, but please change this. If not able to, then get rid of the birds and put a tucann/parrot on the mail box to match the sounds. Since its next to the pub those sounds would better fit the Guinness tucann.

    Sincerely,

    Livmo

    Thumbs up Good idea!

    There is no way a bird that looks like that will make those sounds. They just don't have the internal parts set up that way. I know it's a game and the birds could be magical, but I'm having difficulty digesting this change. The Eveningstar mailbox went from happy to creepy.

    Maybe the folks at the Audobon society or some well informed birders can bolster my argument for changing the birds to something less creepy and more natural.

    I think this is a bug - just like when the animated book's sound replaced the bat sounds a few updates ago.

    Yeah, probably crossed wires. The birds near the Eveningstar mailbox are carrier pigeons, but I bet it was unintentionally altered by some sort of global variable update when they added in the new parrots to the database.

    but on the topic at hand... yeah. the birds in E* used to make a pigeon coo sound. makes sense... carrier pigeons and all that. hopefully yeah, it is just a crossed wire and it'll get fixed relatively quickly, altho under the circumstances i can understand if its not at the top of the priority list XD

    Brilliant. I figured something like this was going to happen with the broad sweeping changes coming from amenities. I suspect a pirate has invaded their dat files.

    My bad I was not even thinking it could be a bug. Thank you very much for bug reporting it Cordovan.

    I should not have stayed up so late last night playing DDO : ) ) I got up early and played more before work too. I seem to be unable to dispell the brain fog today with coffee.

    Dopplebirds? We must stop this invasive species in FR before they spread other planes and Ebberon. We will need to get a posse togehter of ranged builds and fan out in Eveningstar.

    You planted the seed! Dang that would be cool to have a pirate pet on my shoulder! Of course, it would be great if it was cosmetic for a variety of reasons and the birds' sounds could be toggled on on off.

    I'm huge fan of the space pirate Captain Harlock. It would be cool to have a scalable familiar like his bird!

    Now if there was some way to have ingame Guinness I would be set. Mana from Heaven! I know they have a tucann, but how about parrots and tucanns?
