Haunted Wine Cellar Screwage?

This is where you spade, shovel and sickle. Or is it reap?

Haunted Wine Cellar Screwage?

Post by Kevlar » Tue Aug 07, 2007 7:50 am

I've spent over a hundred advs in the wine cellar (split over all 4 corners) today and yesterday and yet have only received the same 3 types of wine over and over.

The fact I have 30 pinot noirs, 30 ports and 30 merlots and nothing else makes me suspicious that this isn't just the rng screwing me.

Has anybody else had something like this happen? Is there a new mechanic?

I can dig out the mafia log if necessary.

Doing mafia to pick up my lucre for the day resulted in getting only 3 types of wine. My thought was that it had something to do with mafia only selecting one corner, however it may be something game related.

I should say also, I didn't mafia all of it, at least 20advs were manual (and spread) and had the same result.

I can't read the link above due to my works stupid policys so will have to check later.

I didn't keep track, but I know it took me fewer than 10 turns, and probably more like 5 turns, to get all six types of wine today.

It seems to be broken again. I posted some spading results here. To summarize, the Adventure Again link is broken in the Wine Cellar (always sends you to the top left corner), so don't use it.

With the Wine Cellar fixed finally, by being turned into four distinct zones, I think it is likely that the randomness has been removed from where the wine bottles can be found. If we get a few people to post here which bottles they found in which corners it should be easy to see whether or not that is the case.

Upper left: Merlot, Pinot, Port
Upper right: Marsala, Merlot, Muscat
Lower left: Muscat, Port, Zinfandel
Lower right: Marsala, Pinot, Zinfandel

My multi seems to have the lower two swapped, but I opened the wine cellar there ages ago.

Upper left: Merlot, Muscat, Marsala
Upper right: Port, Zinfandel, Muscat
Lower left: Pinot, Zinfandel, Marsala
Lower right: Port, Merlot, Pinot

I guess this rules out my theory then.
