Will the roof hovering above the walls on the entrance to the Tithe mini-game entrance ever be fixed? Reported this when Zeah came out and some time after.

Will the transparency issue on Guthan's Chainskirt on male characters ever be fixed? Reported this many times over the last year by now. No, it's not an "intended" feature, it happened in a random update over a year ago, no explenation given, it only happened to male characters, it's the only chain item with this issue, and you can even see the male models legs is glitched and incomplete under it... Please? I'll happily tweet a picture of how it looked pre-bug if needed.

While we obviously like to fix bugs, the testers get a lot of reports, and sometimes the minor cosmetic issues will end up having to take a back-seat to other bugs that have more harmful effects. Sorry.

Understandable.

But the Guthan Chainskirt is a pretty iconic item, and it's been broken for like 1½ year now. It's been broken for so long, that it blurs the lines between being a bug or intended for some people. Some people think it may be intended because "It's a chain, so being look-through kinda makes sense, yeah?" but you can literally see the top half of our legs is missing, and it still looks normal and good on females :(

Would you suggest I try to report it again? I try to be pateint with my reports and not spam hardcore, but I also don't want these things to be forgotten.

I tend not to be personally involved in GFX updates since I can't actually do 3D modelling myself, but I gather a lot of items were remodelled back then because their polygon counts were too high. The artists did their best to preserve the appearances while retopologising the models, but may not have always got it exactly right.

Yes, some things like Ahrim's and the Druidic Wreath saw poly reductions because of some issues. But the Guthan Chainskirt wasn't reduced in polys, the texture (Technically not a texture, you know what I mean) kinda just went transparent on only males for seemingly no reason.

I would traditionally just submit a bug report again, but I guess I could try to tweet Ghost/West a detailed image that much more visibly show the issue. There's still images of the pre-broken chainskirt, thanks to the magic of the internet :)

Cheers Ash, no complaints about the update itself by the way, solid list of tweaks and fixes.

You didn't answer my question :|. Now I just sit in silence.

The mods are only humans too, you wont always get an answer.

They did however address the "Zulrah Scrolls from a shop" in a Q&A in the past, and the mods were very skeptical about that idea, so were the players.

I'm afraid it's not going to be a brand new boss or an ultimate weapon of awesomeness every week.

Wow, mod lazy much?

Seriously though, it would be kinda horrible if every update was big. The word "big" would quickly start to lose its meaning, players would find it hard to keep up unless they play RS all day every day, and the game would quickly become content bloated.

Content bloat is very much a thing, it's something RS3 definitely need to deal with at times, after 15 years of almost weekly updates. In fact, they're starting to REMOVE some things because of it. Weeks with tweaks and fixes deserve some appreciation.
