Accidentally sold talisman, admin/dev response requested

Postby ThatJimGuy » Sun Aug 04, 2013 7:37 am

I appear to be one of many!
Two questions:
1) Can I get it back please (pls lmk what info you need from me [game name, FB profile ID, etc.])
2) Can you implement a "lock" button or something on player-selected items so that the "sell' button doesn't even appear unless the player "unlocks" it? This would greatly reduce the problem of accidental selling of items!!Or, make the talisman an "equip-able" item...

1) check your inventory
2) It's bit tricky to add custom item protection in the game right now due to how items are represented. The warning dialog already look different (with crap load of !!!) when you try to sell something important, please try to pay attention next time.

Thank you so much!

One of the reasons why it is sometimes easy to click on the wrong item to sell is that while exploring, one accumulates a lot of alien and other gear that is worthless for high-level players (except for a handful of coins). So one gets conditioned to click "sell" and pressing "x" several times in a row. In this specific case, my mouse slipped up a bit and I didn't realize it until the game told me that I sold the talisman for 0 coins. :shock:

What about making the talisman "equip-able"? One can't sell something that's equipped..., or placing the talisman in the "Premium Items" section? However, this would mean making a special keyboard shortcut to use it in any of these cases :-\

Or just make it non-sellable: remove the sell button for the talisman. I mean, once a player gets it, they would be foolish to purposely sell it, non? I'm a retired software engineer, and I don't think that this would take much coding at all. I could be wrong though. That happens sometimes :lol:

Thanks again. You turned a bad morning into a good one for me and I really do appreciate the quick response! :)

What about a warning dialogue before equipping a new item? It may seem annoying for those (like me) who switch to staffs to heal, but I figure it might be necessary. Or, preferrably a box check to turn on/off a feature to give a dialogue on all item equips, defaulted on.

Or make this warning dialog have a checkbox in it that you have to check first before the sell button appears?
By doing so, you have to go out of the way to sell something you shouldn't be selling...

I was not paying attention and accidentally sold my talisman also.
Can I get it back? And if not, will one be available in the black market ? Or what is the best area to fish for another one?
Thanks
