Kinds of Badges

At the moment there are existing 3 kinds of badges.

  • The ones which created by system (orange) (note that mapper and ruler are also system),
  • skill badges (blue) and
  • the ones which created by player (player chosen colors).

However, there are finer differences:

The type of a badge consists of following 3 badge properties:

  • Creator of the badge
  • Level of the badge
  • (optional) a special name

Note, badge images are attached to types and do not change the badge type.

This is a list of what badges are provided by which creators:

Skill Badges

You get a skill with every level up and your very first one, when you finish logon. You do not have a free choice, but get a choice from random pair of skills and have to chose one of them.

There are currently the following skills:

  1. Production speed. Every badge of this type reduces badge production period by a certain percentage.
  2. Extra capacity. Adds 5 spaces to your inventory.
  3. Take range. Each of these badges increases your range to take badges.
  4. Magic diamond. Each of those is good for a one time instant production. By using a magic diamond you destroy it, so you might want to keep the last for your leveling score.
  5. Paint brush. Each brush allows you to add a picture to one of your own badge types. By using a brush you destroy it, so you might want to keep the last for your leveling score.
