Maybe I' am alone here (I hope not), but I find the Seaweed Spore spawns VERY difficult to spot if you are not playing on runelite/osbuddy client. When do I giant seaweed runs on MOBILE, I don't even bother looking for the seaweed spore spawn, because without the drop being highlighted, or a loot notification, its impossible to see the tiny dot laying on the ground. This stinks because getting that occasional spore spawn when you are harvesting seaweed is awesome! The spores definitely add up, and currently being able to kill the lobsters with only a brine sabre or trident is a huge pain...for ironman especially, it makes your seed stack last longer before you have to go farm more..

I suggest a few solutions to this problem....


1) Receiving a chat notification when a spore spawns nearby.

2) Making the seed more noticeable laying on the ground, currently, they blend right in with the rocks on the sea bed.


3) Creating a toggle option to choose whether you would like to receive random spores while harvesting (farmers) or randomly throughout the sea (for people who do the mermaid tear thing). The rate at which you would receive spores directly from farming would be the same chance at finding a random spore spawn.


I just feel doing giant seaweed farm runs on mobile puts me at a disadvantage, sure you don't find a seaweed spore EVERY single farm run, but when you do, the stack is usually 2-3 and helps out a lot in the long run.

Agree. I rarely manage to pick the spore up when playing on my mobile.

On a separate but related note, it would be great if Jagex could add a sound effect when the spore appear, along the lines of the birds nest sound, so that we could hear it if afk briefly.

I think we found the problem. The best solution is to add item overlays like those clients have.
I'll keep score from now on.

It's pretty pathetic if you think the challenge of OSRS or Ironman stems from the ability to see items that drop on the ground.

How would being able to see your loot be "EasyScape?" Do you really think the difficulty of the game is seeing loot?

Nice strawman.

Not a strawman at all. Please learn what a strawman is.

You can't just take the things I say when I use them to destroy you and throw them back at me when they don't apply.

You just said you think being able to see the loot drops you get would be EasyScape. By saying this would make it EasyScape, you are implying you think it isn't easy already, so you are saying that seeing the loot drops you get is difficult.

So everything I said is an accurate representation of your argument, therefore not a strawman.

Nice strawman.

Original message details are unavailable.
straw man
noun
noun: strawman
1.
an intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent's real argument.


1) I never even implied that I believe that the challenge of osrs or ironman mode is the ability to see items on the ground. You are intentionally misrepresenting my argument because it's easier to defeat than my actual argument, i.e. making the game easier than it currently is would be easyscape.

2) You can already see your loot on the ground. There's also a red dot on the mini map. Also, this is to loot free items off the ground, lol. Just obtain them in a different method if it's too difficult to grab the free spawns. So to summarise, making the game easier is easyscape. Not saying that looting is a difficult part of the game, but this suggestion is to undeniably make looting (free stuff rather than obtaining it or buying it) easier

3) I never even implied that I believe that the difficulty in the game is seeing loot. You are intentionally misrepresenting my argument because your misrepresentation is easier to defeat than my actual argument, i.e. making the game easier than it currently is would be easyscape.

This implies you think the suggestion being proposed would make OSRS easy, which means you think seeing items on the ground currently isn't easy. You said EasyScape, not EasierScape.

So how exactly am I misrepesenting your argument again?

If you don't think it's difficult, then what the hell does it matter if it's made easier? "Oh no, my already very easy to spot free items on the ground now also has a chat message when it spawns nearby, or is a slightly different color so it's easier to spot! This game is being made too easy! EasyScape! EasyScape!"

Who the hell cares? As I said, it's pathetic if you actually think this is "EasyScape." It's not particularly challenging content in the first place, so it doesn't matter if it's made more convenient.

This is the same kind of horrible reasoning that made people say "Make All" is EasyScape as if it was somehow difficult to press Make X and type a number greater than 27.

Lol, no. You don't understand the term easyscape. It's funny seeing you pretend that you don't understand what I said, but you should try harder next time. No point continuing to engage with your trolling.

OP, once again: no support for easyscape. And this is coming from a P2P player, not a f2p player.
