As you'll have seen above, I've tried reducing the load time of POH. It was taking about 20 secs for a big house before today's update, and with the increased room cap, it would have got even slower. So I've tried rewriting it to get the load delay down. The load time for a big house had decreased from 20 secs to 5 secs when we tested it; I hope you'll find that helpful.

The POH rendering code is complicated. While I've done my best to avoid breaking anything, and we've spent a lot of time testing as various scenarios, I wouldn't be surprised if something breaks somewhere.

If you find you can't get in your house, or the house renders incorrectly, you can use the bug report thread to let us know. Try to describe what your house should look like, and what you're getting instead (e.g. "my curtains have been replaced with rocking chairs").

Even if it takes a bit of time to deal with teething issues, I'm hoping it'll be worth the effort to reduce the POH rendering time by more than half.

Cheers,
Mod Ash

Where is the wyvern update?????????

As you'll have noticed over the last 18 months or so, we can't release every single update the day after its poll finishes. They all come eventually.

Maybe by then you'll have achieved a Patience skill level of 2. :P

Are you sure you didn't make the menu bar above the game bigger?

Mine's no bigger. I dunno what's happened to yours.

Kvsh said:
But srsly, I thought it'd be added now considering it was the first poll option l0l0l0l

Nah, we try to put the most interesting poll options at the top, not necessarily the quickest things to implement.

Do you have an ETA for the random removal? Sorry for being impatient, just can't wait for these to be gone :)

It'll be this month. Either next week or the week after, most likely.

Hi mods, what about 100 elemental/mind..etc in the rune shop?

Quick job. We can have that for next week.

Can you give us a list of which monsters are now considered undead? Would be nice to know for Nightmare Zone.

I've had a look at the records for that job. Seems they fixed the missing Slayer categories for the following quest monsters:
San Tojalon
Irvig Senay
Ranalph Devere
Death wing
Nazasterool
Evil Spirit from Rum Deal
Treus Dayth
Skeletal Hellhound
Tree spirit from Lost City
Bouncer

I don't think you'll be able to complete Slayer tasks by grinding in NMZ though.

Dear Mod Ash. I have a Runescape crush on you. Please respond and make my day. Thank you in advance.

Sophie.

Oh and... thanks for the update.

You're very strange welcome.

when will randoms get updated?
hopefully next week

If possible, sure. If it can't be done in time, we'll go for the week after.

thx for removing the house delay, i hope the new solo boss will be like tormented demonds combat mechanics

Mod Reach is, I believe, a big fan of those mechanics.
We'll see what wins in the poll.

you guys serious?? Random event change has to be one of the most wanted and it didnt get changed this update??????

However much it's wanted, that doesn't mean we can necessarily deliver it the day after the poll ends. It'll come.

You did say the most requested and wanted does come quickest with priority

Yes. But however much everyone wants it it's still a big job that we would not have been able to deliver in time for this week's update.

Like I said, it'll come.

How come in the mangerie the level 70 pet house requires a magic stone (being the most high-end construction item and quite expensive at 975k) when none of the previous or even higher level pet houses dont need them or even lower-tier related items like goldleaf/marble? Is this a typo?

Remember, to make the top-tier pet houses, you have to upgrade from the lower-tier ones. So you've already used a magic stone. I didn't want to force you to pay a total of 3 magic stones to get all the way to the top tier.

In RS3, they don't have the same upgrade requirements for their pet houses; the top three pet house tiers all require a magic stone, but you only build one of them, so you still only pay one magic stone to get the top tier pet house.

Other players could loot the stuff imediatly. The timer will it make impossible for duo teams to loot the teammates stuff if he dies.

Turns out the behaviour has been reverted correctly, so items appear immediately to all players like you describe.

The newspost is just plain wrong, and someone's fixing that now.

Solo boss option seems to be doing well so far:D

What we'd have really liked is ONE question where you'd be allowed to tick up to 3 answers. That way we could see people's choices on-screen straight away, with no maths required.

The website poll system doesn't support that. It lets us do questions where you must give 1 answer, and questions where you can tick as many boxes as you like, but nothing more flexible.

I could make the in-game polls do it, though, if people are ever willing for us to remove the website poll form. Last week's figures say that over 90% of voters are using the in-game poll booths.

Anyway, that's a thought for the future, and we don't have to go there at all if people would prefer to keep the website poll form available.

Does this mean that salve amulet will work on monsters in nightmare zone now?

Looking over the job record again, I believe that's been left alone, at least for now.

I adore the menageries, thank you Ash! I love how the house upgrades, rather than just building the best one from scratch.

Thanks :)

Saxo said:
Any other mod would have stopped simply at what was polled, but you always go the extra mile and try to add that tiny little thing that makes it all better. This, moving bank tabs, etc.

Thank you. Yeah, I think it's been well worth the extra dev-time.

Can the going to house in (building mode) be added as a right click somewhere ...example; tele to house...
so I don't have to click twice... once to get there and again to enter in build mode?

Not a small job. It's something we'd like to do when we can.

Mr ensayne said:
What about the randoms update?

That, along with all the other polled updates that haven't come out yet, will come in a future update.

You'd be surprised, I've completed my last two black demon tasks through NMZ :P The bouncer inclusion for hellhounds will be very helpful I'm thinking.

That's what I meant. According to the record for today's change, they did not apply it to NMZ bosses such as Bouncer.

To get replacement/spare ectophial and enchanted secateurs, I need to go to the Barbarian Assault rewards shop.

Um... nearly.

You buy the BA rewards from the BA rewards shop, right?
So if you want to buy more copies of the BA rewards, you go to the BA rewards shop and buy more.

You get the ectophial from Velorina at the end of the Ghosts Ahoy quest. Previously, she'd give you another one only if you lost yours. Now she'll give you another one if you ask, regardless of whether you've already got one.

Malignius Mortifer sells replacement secateurs once you've finished Fairy Tale Pt I. Previously, he'd sell you another one only if you lost yours. Now he'll sell you another one if you ask, regardless of whether you've already got one.

Mod Ash, I hope you're still reading this. I've noticed a small issue with the Menageries...

I saw you'd made two threads about this bug yesterday, and the forum mod correctly locked them and directed you to the bug report form.
