Those of you who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of butlers will be glad to know that our training program has reached the point where we think the butlers can be trusted to reliably perform simple tasks.
Butlers can hold packages and messages for you, and give information to your visitors. You can give your butler a name, and customize its appearance.
If you see any problems, please let us know and we will send the offending butler to remedial training.
Forgot to say: Your butler can also open your mailbox.
And, for people who find their butler is stuck on their porch or door, switch your house style to the Hobbit house or Groddle Cottage, then switch it back.
Messages are now echoed in local chat, so you can read them later! (Note: in general, butler conversations that get echoed to local chat are only visible to the person the butler is talking to.)
When you leave info, the butler now shows you what your info currently is and asks if you want to change it.
For those people who don't like their butler standing next to the door, we now have a way for you to tell the butler where to stand. Simply click on your butler and choose "Set post" to change the butler's assigned post to your current position.
Also, we increased the maximum length of butler names by a few characters, and butlers will now leave their IM windows open after you leave the location so you can continue reading your list of visitors.
