Title: Demi-God Avatars
Post by: YoungSykotic182 on April 11, 2013, 11:53:45 AM
To Unlock: "A gift for the gifted. Ask and you will never receive."
The Demis are currently unlocked by the act of a Zeus being placed on your world. If a Dev visits and deems your world worthy he will notify you that he wants to place the avatar. Please take note that asking for the avatar is a sure way to not get it. The quote says it all.

For info on how to get a Zeus on your world go here (http://totalminerforums.net/index.php?topic=682.0)

Those of you who previously had a Zeus on your map are probably wondering why you don't have the Demis. As said above the unlock is triggered by the act of Zeus being placed, not just that he is in your world. So in order to unlock them you will need to have Zeus placed again. For those of you who have a legit Zeus on your map you can go here (http://totalminerforums.net/index.php?topic=609.0) to put in a request for a Dev visit.

The Demi-Gods made their way into the 1.8 update. Special thanks to Quadraphinic for the idea. Also take note that the Helen model will not be in the game but was posted anyway for you all to see Stephen's amazing work.

Wasn't it your idea?

Post by: YoungSykotic182 on April 20, 2013, 04:29:22 PM
The idea was Quads.
I thought up the details and posted it.
Martin made the avatar models.
I made slight changes to them and what you see is how they look in game.

I have a question, do you get the avatar when someone places a Zeus in your world? If so, what about the people in the world that already had the Zeus placed. Do they automatically get to use it in the world?

Zues must be placed again for you to unlock it.

Throwback Clearly this isn't the method anymore.

Demigods are unlocked by bumping the demigod topic. Everyone knows that!

in that case... pmub!! but srsly it should go back to this method

With our 1 developer that could place Zeus? Not to mention that he has a wife and kids. With the speed of current updates I doubt heíll spend much time on TM upon stable releases of MP.

The current method is a much fairer way of getting the Demiís and it means that literally anyone can get them if theyíre willing to graft.

Post by: Lunar on March 14, 2019, 04:37:00 PM
yeah anyone can get them, and i agree thats a fairer way, but it should also be used to recognize our most dedicated players not someone whos willing to sweat their fingers off for a few days

What?

I think we should go back to the old method because its a lot more selective, anybody can come on their first day and sweat to get demis
Title: Re: Demi-God Avatars
Post by: Jaz on March 15, 2019, 12:11:19 AM
This was indeed the coolest method.

It could be the tester team that gives them out instead, since there's only one dev lol

Post by: Lunar on March 15, 2019, 12:56:17 AM
thanks for agreeing lmao, i just feel its more genuine

Can I just remind you about Jim? He was the first ever person to get the Demiís and it took him months, not days. Demiís are a hard thing to get and if you can manage to unlock them it displays your graft and perseverance which most donít have.

Manual selection is just an outdated idea now, itís completely unfair because not everyoneís worlds will be visited.

There not even enough testers active to go to this method only testers I ever see on are conmaan,clerical and sometimes widow. It's not a good idea to switch back to this.

Took me 5 months or so. I had 3 maps that had 200+ rates on each of them. I spent ages going around and rating other peopleís maps.

Donít even get me started on getting all the unlockables required... Handyman was so annoying.

The current way to unlock them shouldnít be changed as anyone who puts the time in can unlock them.

How many people own them on the new method.?

On 360 I donít believe there were more than 5 people though I could be wrong. I think most people are too lazy to get them tbh :P I like the current way and to switch back would just be ludicrous.
