  9. As our community continues to grow, we are seeking additional help from our community members in the Moderator capacity to help keep our community a friendly place! We want the forums and discord to be mediums where users may carry engaging discussions about Identity without the threat of being harassed or threatened. This is not to say that we don’t accept people offering constructive criticism! We want our community to offer a healthy discussion that aims to make Identity the best it can possibly be! An excellent trait for a moderator to have is the capability to demonstrate a good sense of empathy. Having a human approach to situations that demand attention plays a huge part in keeping the community happy! By providing robotic responses and instantly dismissing users who may have unintentionally broken the rules, a moderator might end up contributing to a bad situation! It’s important to understand where someone is coming from, and to give others a chance to explain their situation regarding a dispute where possible. Patience obviously degrades with repeated offenders who seek to solely incite negative responses, but for first offenders, we’re looking for mods who might try to relieve some of the blame by relating to their actions (while still letting them know that they broke the rules and that it’s not okay to do so)! You will be given until Tuesday, December 11th to complete and submit an application where we will then review all entries and message the new moderators. Follow this thread for updates. Apply Here: https://goo.gl/forms/FQ8l6DS7tWGWEL3R2 Things we look for: Advantages: 1. Forum activity 2. Discord activity 3. Positive interaction posts/comments 4. Well put application 5. Past experience 6. High involvement in the community 7. Good grammar Red Flags: 1. Previous warning points 2. Very new forum profiles 3. Low activity on the forums or discord 4. Negative forum or discord interactions with other users, etc. Thank you and we look forward to finding the right fit to ensure the best experience on the Identity Forums and Discord. We will also be preparing a moderator guide as well as instructions for the newly selected moderators so be prepared to accept an NDA. DEADLINE IS TUESDAY DECEMBER 11th. https://goo.gl/forms/FQ8l6DS7tWGWEL3R2

    Not being able to view apartments gained from pledges are related to the database issues as it pulls your profile and character info. Also, you are unbanned!

I'm late posting the notes for that one as we've been busy focusing on more patches.I expect that we'll be releasing patches with fixes, improvements and/or new content just about every weekday. The next update is expected to released in a few hours, and so the patch notes are also below. Hotfix 1 -Fixed a whole lot of crashes! Settings menu crashes, server joining crashes, and the whole lot of them. -Fixed a bug which would make your character invisible.

  12. With the release of our highly anticipated Town Square module, comes “The Beginner’s Guide to the Town Square.” Apartment Basics: In order to purchase furniture, speak to the NPC at the desk of the hotel lobby. To successfully enter your apartment, from the elevator menu simply ensure that your character’s name is inputted into the search bar and select “Search.” This will take you to the correct floor of your apartment and load the instance. Once exiting the elevator, the text at the bottom of your screen will assist you in locating the door to your designated apartment. Ex: “Your apartment can be found at number 405.” Keybinds for customization: -Middle Mouse: Initiates editor menu -Left Click: Selects the highlighted area for editing -Right Click: Exits editor menu Placing apartment furniture: -i: Opens player inventory (can be rebinded) -Left click on the item you want to place in your apartment -Select “Place in World” on the bottom left of the screen -Scroll the mouse wheel to rotate the object being placed -Left click: Places the object at the desired location -Del: Removes furniture after it’s picked up Picking up and moving furniture: -Middle mouse: Enter customization menu -Highlight object by looking at it -Left click: Picks object up and allows player to move it Basic Controls: -T (hold): Push to Talk -Enter: Text Chat (instanced based) -Shift: Sprint -C: Crouch -Space: Jump -Period (numpad): Emotes -V: First/ Third Person view
