    Veracity recently added code to deal with disabled shops. That was r17622 on Jan 3, 2017.

That is what I recall happening before the days of frozen stores so this is neither a Bug Report nor a complaint. It might someday evolve into a Feature Request but we can hope that if a store is frozen, KoL would stop teasing us by including the frozen inventory in searches.

    Point being, I think shoptroll's problems may be related to frozen stores.
    You just vehemently agreed with me

If nothing can really be done in the script or mafia that's fine, no worries. Was just wondering if anyone knew for sure what was causing it and if it could be fixed in the script or Mafia.

    Thanks for the fast replies both of you

    The problem is that, client side, we don't know that a store is frozen until you try to purchase from it and KoL says, "Oops! Sucks to be you!"

    The feature request would be for us to remember that store ID and not try to go there for the rest of the session, at least. And that would be reasonable, regardless, since it is the same issue with shops who have baleeted you; we should remember that and leave them alone henceforth.

    The CORRECT fix would be for KoL to fix it server-side and not present a store for consideration if it is frozen.

    I'm going to submit a bug report, by and by, but it sure would be helpful if a dev with the admins' ear(s) would comment on this - if only to look at my bug report and say "fuck, yeah!"

    Is there a reason it buys a seal tooth at the start of an ascension?

    So I kind of wandered out of my way to gather some candy this run. It appears there are candies included in the map file for this script. There should probably be some logic added to not use those as restoratives if one has the Sweet Synthesis skill. At least in my opinion, the candy is more valuable for use with the skill than as a restorative.

    What an excellent point.

    I really had not noticed that there were restorative candies.

    Edit: Script updated with this change. It will still use candy if you have mall access.

    No, thank you for pointing this out. I remember looking at my synthesis possibilities in a previous run and wondering what happened to a candy that I was sure must have been there when I previously checked. I'm betting I lost it this way and never knew! Finally the mystery is solved so that the tragedy will never be repeated.
