  • Character’s zodiac sign will be chosen at random when creating a character.

 

WHY? This makes no sense! Why would you remove choice? This is especially bad for is Roleplayers!

They didn't, they just let you skip a step for people who don't give a toss about zodiac. You can change it at your leisure.

Nah, had a bad experience a few GPUs back with similar software.

I just go straight through BIOs for the overclock utility.

I think, IMO, it gives a level of reality. It's not like it's cemented-- if you're given "Key" you can switch to a different sign in the character creator.

I have never seen the option to change my choosen zodiac sign i picked from beginning, i checked in beauty to change character looks and voices, i dont see any zodiac change option there, were do you find it, did you look in the beauty (character creator) after you made a character? because they are slightly different.

It's only available when you first create your character. You can't change the sign you're born under with surgery :P . Ultimately it's a niche factor that can be explored in RPs, but usually holds little bearing aside from how cool it sounds to say. There are some factors with amity gain, but it's minimal at best.

Im well aware how it works outside the game :) but then i dont understand your last comment "If you're given "Key" you can switch to a different sign in the character creator." and yes "It's only available when you first create your character"

Meaning = make a character - check sign - dislike? - delete - wait 24h zzz - make new character - rinse repeat. Which isnt as positive and simple as your comment comes out as (reason i responded :) )

Ah my mistake, I was giving a specific example. In the character creator, if you get a sign you don't like (I used "Key" as my example, feel free to replace with whatever you're given), on the same character creator screen you can change the sign. It's just a preset randomized variable that gives you a random sign. I don't know if it's tied into the day you've created the character or if it's truly RNG. But you aren't forced into a sign, just given one at random that can be changed up until you've completed the creation.

 

Hope this helps!

There should be an event coming from the Black Spirit but many people are having the problem with it not showing up (atleast I do). And I guess we can exchange them for something,

no problem, I personally don't feel bothered about the zodiac sign, but I understand roleplayers, I picked dragon for all my character, quickly in my logic, that sounded coolest, so sure all should be a "dragon month clan", and even tho I'm not  playing that tiny thought out in the game, there might be some people who do roleplay using their zodiacs aswell, and changing this might ruin their future characters "histories". This patch huges amount of tiny weird changes, the one bothering me was the screenshot watermark change.  

Im curious what the reasoning is behind it all, did some in kr exploit the zodiac by picking a specific one back in the beginning of the game? do they lack more rng content ? 

Im  just trading thoughts here,  i   dont  understand what the developers are going for here, it seems like many of these changes the developers wanted, only help reduce content, that worked perfectly fine before this patch. o.O 

(im reading your last comment again, i think i missunderstand again xD sorry, if i understand now, havent we always been able to do that before creating our character? i did all mine dragon before creating, the game didnt suggest mine to dragon

Edited the best i could, i dont understand how to change it xD

You can get decorative eggs for your house.  The Black Spirit gave me a Flonder Goose Egg Table Decor for turning in one Rainbow Flonder.

Here are the Egg Quest Requirements & Rewards from Florin.. *Trade Manager, *Skill Instructor, *Jeweler, & *Herb Vendor.

Flonder Event (House Decoration) - Where do you exchange the eggs to get them???

I read last year's event and there were certain NPC you exchange the eggs by finishing their quest. This year, I don't see any information about it. The only quest is the Black Spirit to earn the Goose Egg Table Decor, then the daily quest at Florin for a Black Spirit Egg (a 15-20 mins buff).

Ah I see.  I might try tinkering my gpu's bios instead of relying MSI AB

Noticed, especially with this update, game seems to perform better without AB running in the background.

I still would like to run AB because I like to set my fan speed manually but with AB running, game seems to stutter more often for me.

if  you do n't use AB then for gpu fans what program do you use to control ur fan speed of your gpu ?

Firstly, thanks for Choppy (super cute!), and of course thank you for the Kuno update, please don't let me stop you! :D There are also some nice improvements and I like the pet appearance change preview. Marketplace still need improvements, but it's good to see you are trying to improve it, so thanks. And lastly, thanks for the performance update, didn't really get to really try it, but hopefully it can't hurt.

Then, the watermark. Not a fan, but you can make it less apparent with options:

I'm sure there was something else but... no that's it for now.
