Gold & HP Status Notifications

This one has been way overdue, but I've finally added status change notifications over player & npc heads.  No more "you got 1 gold" messages filling up the chat window, as this will instead be shown with an icon over your head.  HP damage is also shown in a red font.

Gold is now added directly to your player, instead of having to manually pick it up.

Finally, Hipsters now give two gold instead of one.

  1. What a crappy update. Now I can’t steal all the gold noobs leave behind 😛

  2. I want to steal noobs gold too! but the messages was unneeded… Auto pickup too.

  3. The first update in a while… (I consider snow as new content, not as an update)
    I like this update, it gives the game a bit sleeker feeling.
    And you’ve finally got rid of that annoying ‘You gained 1 gold’ message.
    But an ingame-message filter is still needed 😉

    And now that coins are gone… why not make coins purchable in the shop so you can still place them in the world?

    • Thanks, glad you like it 🙂

      I might consider having gold coins in the shop, but I’m not sure there’s all that much purpose to them? Safes seem to do a better job of this IMO

  4. When you see a coin in wilderness, place it under glass to keep it forever. Coins won’t disappear!

  5. I think stealing “noob’s” gold is not a smart move at all.
