No

Now that there is a protected area around Jynath's hut, the entrance can be blocked by one player.
It's not possbile to either attack him (protected), push him away (railing of stairs) or use the door diagonally by right-click menu.

Discussion

  • I think that is okay as people can just go to Kirdneh. If it turns out to be a problem in reality, we can think about solutions. But until then, I prefer to keep the little hut.

     
  • I am playing regularly and I am thinking of Jynath's hut not as a healing point, but as an important entrance to Magic City. Couldn't we just remove the two collisions at the railing.

    Please provide an alternative set of stairs for the little hut which are 3 tiles wide, as otherwise removing the collisions will look unrealistic.

    Otherwise please note hendrik's suggestion that we can provide a solution if it does happen in reality. I think back to times for example when blocking the bank door with a few players was fashionable, we found a general solution for that which did not require a server restart or changes to the ways portals worked.

    kymara, you are right. I've had a closer look at it. Moving horizontal when standing directly in front of the door is really looking bad. Providing an alternative set of stairs would not solve that. It would be looking bad anyway, because of the plinth masonry. But I think a complete reconstruction of the hut might be undesired.

    hendrik, we will see, if it results in blocking the entrance to Magic City by some questionably funny players. Who knows maybe my worries are causeless.

    General thoughts: What's the reason making the outside areas around the hut (and Kirdneh Inn) pvp protected? I understand the argumentation for the inside areas pointing to avoidance of blocking the npc and the tiles around them for other players. But doesn't operate the green area, especially around Jynath's hut in the oposite direction? It implements an additional opportunity of blocking a quite important trafic way.

    ... 3 tiles wide stairs seem to be a bit oversized for the little hut, but maybe I could give it a try - with a little help from redqueen for sure. ;o)

    I've attached a quick and dirty edit of the hut. How about it?

    monsterdhal: if the area directly outside Jynath's was not protected, people would train there as it's closest for getting back inside for free healing.

    Then the door would certainly be blocked!

    Hello,

    I would suggest to maybe wait, if the door problem will really show up on main server after the release or if it works like it is now... And I think if they want to block something, they always find a way :)
