    Macros - AFK farming

    Hi there,

    Just wondering whats the deal with people using macros to afk farm for crafting items / ores.
    Everytime I go to serpent valley to hunt red threads for quests there seems to be a handful of wizz, afk with pets constantly clearing all the mobs.

    So they are not only getting threads 24/7, but also making it harder for everyone else to get any - therefore dominating the market.

    Seems kinda shit that while most players hunt and put in the hours to obtain the items needed to craft things, a select few will just make a second character and leave it collecting for them all day long.

    There must be a way to stop these people using macros ?

    Both mines and some of the easy maps that drop threads (serpent valley for example) are covered in bots 24/7. It's getting to be a major issue.

    I think it should be stoped... why should ppl put there time and effort into farming whilst players are going afk taking all your farm..

    That seems to be the general consensus from the majority of the server (bar the people are are guilty of doing it).

    Would be nice to see GM's opinion on the matter - I don't want to have to make multiple accounts and bot for craft items 24/7 but if everyone else is making lots of gold from doing so I don't want to be the only broke ass bitch.

    Can I pk you then think of a better idea?
    *pk moment* GF.
    Maybe report the names that are botting, and im sure Jamie has looked into the botting because I haven't seen any bots since the last time I played. I literally quit because of the botting.. but now it seems to be gone.. lets hope?

    Thinking of setting up a mir1.4 server for me and some friends to play on. If you have any updated files 1.4 files(with more NPC commands/ with a list of them) please send me a PM.

    They aint doing nothing wrong though, a macro tapping rt for them every so often.... Take 30 seconds to set up your own to tap " 1 " every minute.... Stack full 250 Rts, come back in 250 minutes. It's not botting

    Re: Macros - AFK farming

    If Jamie would just disable RT's in both mines then the problem wouldn't be half as bad.

    people with 4 or 5 wizz afk RT'ing in mines overnight are making a ridiculous amount of gold which is not good for the servers economy?

    I just spent 30mins clearing both mines, 5 members from TheRedAfros, one from TGW and a char called '12345' now these are all clearly afk farming champs. I stopped them now but if they do this every night, well you can do the math.

    Singod's 5 chars from TheRedAfros will earn atleast 5mill each per night.
