I had a chat with *Xman* the other day, and we put together a list of stuff that needs fixing/improving - the plan is to meet once a month to do this.

I have so far completed these:
-- change premium training from tavern as well as training facility
-- add skillcaps to custom events

Still to look into:
-- SCL: spawns are often too close?
-- add a training camp to BL
-- vehicles with no weapons are ignored by NPCs in scouts??
-- should not be possible to bounty out of a SCL combat

I'm also planning on giving *Xman* the ability to close down stuck events, and a couple of other things -- more on that later.

That's great Sam, could you just elaborate on the tavern training thing for me I don't know what that was?

I'm thinking what he means is that we will be able to change premium and CHR training at taverns, which opens up non-training towns...and camps?

If so, that's pretty cool.

I hope that is what SAM means to do- that would indeed be pretty cool, especially for perma camp gangers

That's it, yes. Mostly to get around the problem of not being able to turn off Chrome training while away from the big towns.

Can I ask for a very unimportant but quick fix please SAM?
when you break down items in camp, the writing is white, on a very light background.
My ageing eyes and ageing laptop means I just can't read it.
Thanks and much love,
Brun.

Brun , yes good one I cant and I have good glasses!


Sam sorry to be as two limited length pieces of lumber but the fix you mentioned regarding training. Does this mean that there is still no effect of premium and chrome training unless there is a training centre, is this correct, what has changed is that we can now swap between the training types at a tavern anywhere in order that we don't spend dw dollars and chrome where there is no benefit.

yeah that's a bugger if I want to know what its saying I drag highlighter with the mouse.  most of the time im not bothered but it also lists the mech points remain the same way.

Thank you for the fix and thanks X for speaking to the god of Evan

The change by switching the ability to select character training to the taverns was to help make it easier if the character was not in a town with a training center.

If you had a character training in FL and wanted to switch to $500 DW training, you would have to travel to BL to SF or BL to GW to SS
(minimum 2 full days), then double that for the return trip.

The actual benefit to switch to CHR training at a tavern, as far as I know, does not affect the boost. This change was only done to make it easier to change character training types.

I think the problem is actually that the ability to use SCL vouchers has been removed as part of the "fix" to permit the changing of premium training in taverns. I rarely use my vouchers, so have ones going back to 2064 and have no option to use them this week.

I can see in my activities page that I supposedly received two vouchers from last season back on 2/22, so I think last season's were awarded.

Please re-fix by re-adding the "start special training" button that is now missing to use vouchers from the SCL.

Any chance of the in-game menu UI being reworked? There are still some things only possible through the website and the layout is kind of clunky, with the DW:Tactical button being almost out of reach when I play in a window.

Also it would be great if we could see how many turns are needed for the weapons to reload/cars to be flipped etc

I just checked character training after the weekly update and noticed the "Special Training" option is back.

except that now special training shows at the tavern instead of the training center. Someone might want to update the wiki

I just noticed that when I change my ganger's training focus from Driving to Handguns, my ganger was automatically removed from the $500 a week training.
