    Gronds pathing is ~so~ much better! He still moves a tiny tiny bit, but it is so small it is not problematic.

    We tried to position him through the wall. He got into the wall a little bit but not enough to cause any issues and he never went out of the room.

    I noticed the grondling adds have a working lunge now, but they still go static on occasion if their target jumps.

    Yeah, we tried it out. Grond can get closer to the edge than he used to (I always used to be able to push past him around the edge of the room to place puddles better, now I can't, and I can get him standing on the ledge half clipped out of the room), but neither of those things really breaks anything. Couldn't figure a way to clip him through the door, though not a master of clip-fu so someone else might have better luck. It basically reminds me of how the fight used to be.

    Grondling lunge is... probably slightly useful to the OT and harmless for everyone else. Every time a grondling lunges is a time when it's not throwing rocks, and throwing rocks is way more dangerous than anything it does at close ranges.

    Yeah, Grond isn't moving around like crazy after testing this with a bunch of SG members. Also:

    Yes, the eye can move.

    Yeah, it makes getting the grondling to the OT much quicker and spend less time getting aoe to death at Grond's feet.

    Beanie propeller 2 is bugged; it has colors in its material selection, and the propeller itself doesn't render, though the shaft does (I suspect it's supposed to be an animated part like cosmic flames, but if so it doesn't work).

    I so hope the Magnifier devices come this FoxBat Con...
    Those googly eyes would be perfect for beast heads. If they don't clip too much.

    Yeah, those goggly eyes aren't compatible with beast head. It suffer the same problem as most of the eye accessory ie it made for human head or very flat faces.

    Feedback on Telekinesis (Power)

    Overall: I'm very much liking this new version of Telekinesis (Power). (So much so, I'm retconning on LIVE right now in prep for it). The updated summon and throw animation is great as well as the lower cool down. Both are very welcome changes, ones which a few people were suggesting for a while since the last major change / rework it had, so thank you for listening!

    In addition to that, the wider variety of objects to throw is also a welcome addition, I've noted the following so far:

    - Crates
    - Cars
    - Forks
    - Spoons
    - Knives
    - Presents
    - Air Conditioning Unit (ripped off!)
    - Pet Carrier
    - Present Box
    - Destroid Head
    - Stop Sign
    - Wooden Ship Wheel
    - Machine part of some sort


    My only request is that if possible, the chance of certain items appearing in the spawn is increased based on rank? Or if they could just have a higher frequency in general that'd be great. The items in question are as follows:

    - Cars
    - Crates
    - Machine parts
    - Air Con units

    It still feels like a novelty power but one which has a good place in combat to switch things up a little bit.

    I want 'pick up one mob and throw it at another mob', though that might be tricky to implement.

    How are these latest changes to telekinesis making it worse?
  • spordeliaspordelia Posts: 284 Arc User
    Yeah I don’t think it matters now. The change is live and people seem to like it, good for them.

    I think it's a complain that you can now fling toilets and other wacky things with TK's animation.

    Why anyone would complain about a power that actually did absolutely nothing at all now doing something, even if not to your taste, is beyond me.​​
