Room of the Week - AnneMarieYoung

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

room_29b_annamarieyoungAnneMarieYoung’s room is quite simple. Placement of the beds seem to baffle me, however, as one is placed next to a bathroom, and another stashed openly in a corner. Yet, as odd as they are, the peculiar positions of the beds work.

New Feature: Umbrellas!

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

umbrella_sm

We’ve added a new feature where you can buy umbrellas. When you equip the umbrella,  it will reduce the rain that’s falling around you (If you don’t see this, then you’ll need to clear your temporary files).

Enjoy!

Room of the Week - Unbreakable

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

room_29_unbreakableUnbreakable’s apartment is quite spacious. Instantly as you enter, you’ll be greeted by a divided front room. Off to the corner are doors that will lead you to many other rooms. There lied many toilets in the bathroom, and I wonder who they’re all for.

Unbreakable’s room was featured in Issue 086 of The Journal

New Feature: ZZzzzZZz

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

cevans_zzz_sm

Some of you may have noticed that Socians have been randomly passing out on their feet lately. That’s because we’ve added a new feature where if you’re idle for more than 5 minutes, your character will dose off on their feat. This will help other players know you’re away from your character.

If you want to manually doze off, simply type “/zzz”. Also if you see someone else napping on their feet, click on them and you’ll get several options to wake them up.
