Calcium Depletion in effect

Hey musers,

We are testing out phase one of the new calcium and production changes. (You can see the full post and discussion in comments here)

Starting today the calcium part of the discussed changes will go into effect.

  1. Users producing more than 10 liters  per day will be subject to additional calcium depletion.

    • 10% of your daily production over 10 liters will be deducted from your calcium.
    • Example: 18 liters produced in one day. 18L – 10L = 8L, 10% of 8 is 0.8. Your calcium depletion for that day will be 0.5mg for the standard daily deduction, and 0.8mg for your production for a total of 1.3 mg depletion.

This will be calculated at midnight SLT when the normal calcium depletion takes effect. Please note that while we have done our best to test this before putting it live, we can only do so much with out hitting everyone’s calcium to test it. So tonight will be that test. We appreciate all the feedback we have gotten on the suggested changes and welcome suggestions on how to improve any part of the game implemented or not so that we can improve the system to be as best as possible.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Self Breast Exams

Performing a Breast Self Exam or a BSE is one recommended way of helping to detect breast cancer early and increase the likelihood of recovery. The most effective way to detect breast cancer is by mammography, and a clinical breast exam can complement mammography screening. BSE should not be relied on as they only way to detect breast cancer but it is beneficial aid, it allows you to become more familiar with your body and what is normal for you.

Suggested New Production Limits

As you know we work hard to ensure that the Milk Made is not exploited and that the milk market is kept balanced to encourage the enjoyment and benefit to the most users. Recently we have been able to help bring about a rise in milk prices though our policies and changes to the system. With this rise we are seeing more people who are producing more milk. We are glad to see more people actively involved in the system. However we have noticed that some users are taking this to an extreme and are producing more than should be possible with an interactive system.

An avatar consistently producing over 40 liters a day destroys the usefulness of the calcium depletion. In order to protect the integrity of the system and the market we are proposing a change to how calcium depletion works and a daily production limit. This change should not affect most users but only those who are pushing the upper limits.

  1. Users producing more than 10 liters  per day will be subject to additional calcium depletion.

    • 10% of your daily production over 10 liters will be deducted from your calcium.
    • Example: 20 liters produced in one day. 20 – 10 = 10, 10% of 10 is 1.0. Your calcium depletion for that day will be 0.5mg for the standard daily deduction, and 1.0mg for your production for a total of 1.5mg depletion.
  2. Users producing more than 25 liters per day will be subject to a 12 hour cooling off period.

  3. Users producing more than 2.5 liters per day organically will be subject to a 12 hour cooling off period.

  4. The cooling off period will function similar to the verification hold, but it can be removed by drinking an amount of milk yet to be determined.

This is something that we have discussed in the past but have avoided because we wanted to give you as much freedom to play with the system as possible. However our anti botting measures have not had the full impact that we had hoped.  We still want to reward high producers, MoT Levels will continue as they have been. After looking at the small amount of users this will effect and the negative impact such incredible production has on the game and market it seemed the best choice to make.

As you know this is not our first time fighting this battle. We have gone to great lengths to prevent automation of the pumping process, and other forms of cheating. Those efforts have beared fruit which we are very pleased with. We do it to protect your investment in our product, but it does impact our ability to work on and put out new products.

Our goal in these matters is always to minimize the impact and cost to our customers. Our estimation is that less than 5% of our active users will experience these new limitations. We also believe this fairly places the burden on those who should carry it.

Your daily totals can be seen on your website stat page. Please let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

*Thank you everyone for your feed back we are closing comments for the time being while we look over the numbers and the suggestions. New information will be posted on this topic in a new blog post when we have more to share. *
