RuneScape: New Rest Feature
Well, so am I!!! This article will be about this new rest feature, discussing how It’ll probably work and all.
Firstly, the rest feature is a new feature that will allow players to ‘rest’ thus recovering their run energy faster than normal.
In the beginning of April 2009, runescape accidentally released a version of the top level interface that had a test option on the run button called ‘Rest’. Many players tried using that option, but it did not work. That was because it was not completed yet, so the button did not have any function.
Anyway, the original ideas for the rest feature were that runescape would create a ‘rest’ function that the player can use anywhere that will restore run energy more quickly than normal OR , to create benches that would allow players to sit on and restore run energy even more rapidly.
However, benches were clearly not a good option as runescape encountered problems with the animation software they used for the game, being able to only let one player sit on one bench at a time. Nobody would want to queue up for a chance to sit on a bench now, wouldn’t they?
The next ideas were to put cushions on the floors to let players sit on them. Still, it didn’t look good. The runescape team did not want runescape to be strewn with players looking as though as they were out for picnics. So, after a lot of thinking, they came up with a whole new concept. They decided on putting musicians in cities. Players could talk to a musician and there would be and option allowing the players to sit around the musicians and rest, while chatting with other players.
Sounds good huh? I’m just so looking forward to the update!
