I would make new 80 storages literally only loadable in the MH, totally worth it.

I'd even be fine with restricting safe, safe2 storage and locker to only viewable/loadable in MH too, if that makes coding "new 80 inventory item" easier.

You really don't need wardrobes, you just need somewhere to put all the ***they keep piling on with augments and the slip system sucks.

Personally I'd be totally fine with that too, but I don't think they'd go that far and I'm sure many players would complain.

Still, making an exception just for all towns and not for every bloody zone sounds like something doable?
I dunno, would love to hear the opinion of people more competent with packets and behind_the_curtains stuff.

I know that in theory you can manipulate packets to ACCESS (and not just visualize) those 4 repositories in all the towns, but I don't think that's possible in all other zones, by SE design.

Things like this are only bearable if you're using addons to move gear around with a single command though. People who don't use these tools wouldn't beenfit much from more mog storage as much.

Literally anything would help though.

SE already said multiple times that the 3 Escha zones are their way to give us "ilevel Abyssea".
Umm, can I get a link or 2 to them saying this? I don't recall this at all seriously. I highly doubt an iLVL Abyssea but a iLVL VW scares me, VW sucked.

10k DI points for head, hand and feet, 15k points for legs and 20k points for body.
>>813 days to get 5/5 doing DI every day! XD (prob less with some campain n stuff)

it doesn't have to be efficient it just has to work well enough to hold more gear without adding (much) more burden to loading.

The full contents of the AH do not load every time you zone. They only load when you're intentionally trying to view the contents of a particular section on the AH.

They should be able to achieve the same thing for those contents in the MogHouse that you can't equip right on the spot without pulling them out of the Mog - make them load upon demand to view. They should be able to make the itemsearch functional with that, too.

This would save on the bag load times per zone, and possibly could allow for another Wardrobe while still having less load times per zone. If they could make this functional, there'd be zero reason they couldn't add more MogHouse only storage, too.

It is probably possible but question is how much of a development headache is this? How much has to be recoded? Do they have the resources to take on this kind of project and to bug test it?

Biggest issue they have with FFXI is they didn't optimize the coding when they dropped the console support. The development is still done on a ps2 dev kit. Until they do that you probably won't see much in changes and with the low subscription base it probably isn't something they see as a wise investment of time and money.

From a software engineering background, I've always been of the opinion that this codebase is (probably) an unmaintainable, unscalable hellhole.

Another opinion of mine is that changing this part of the core game functionality is not trivial. But we do need it if we are to continue to play and they continue to release new gear.

We haven't had any strictly new content since December 2016 (Omen) and my hope is that this is what they've been working on all this time.

Don't worry, I'm sure someday we will get Abyssea [D] or something.

How many times does it have to be said that SE already said Escha/Reisenjima are Abyssea v2... Pretty sure at least 5 times in this thread.

Even with what SE has said I'd still enjoy an Abyssea (D) or w/e we want to imagine it'd be called.

SE might have said that Escha was the "Abyssea v2", but unless there's a crazy proccing system that requires 15 different jobs in one alliance it doesn't count for most.

And Limbus/Salvage was thought to be a Dynamis v2 when it first came out. Didn't stop them from releasing Limbus v2, Salvage v2, and Dynamis v2.

My point merely was it doesn't matter what SE says, be it in a "Freshly Picked", Official Release Notes, or even something casually said at an omakase to the sushi chef. It just flat out doesn't matter to us players. If the version 2.0 of something doesn't boil down to EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ORIGINAL, just higher levels, the playerbase will scream about it "not being teh sames! I don't have the same old feelz!!!"

Jesus we're getting as bad as Star Wars fans.

I posted something a while ago in a different thread about how another game I previously played put all of the monthly bonuses on a cycle and it was no longer even something exciting but something you knew was coming.

I don't really follow FFXI news, but has this already happened yet or not? e.g. what months CP bonus is on, VW bonus, etc. or are they still manually deciding them?

So far it's been manual with some things you can expect but cannot take for granted.
Likewise for Login points, can expect things with a certain degree of precision but can never be 100% sure.

Monthly objs have cycled on a predictable way instead.

Making inventories that only load in MH is the wrong way to go about it. They could increase the packet size cap tenfold with modern hardware, and it may be as simple as toggling a few values in their system and assessing load changes. That would make everything load 10x faster so it doesn't matter how many inventories they give you. They already killed windows 7 support, console support, *** dialup.
