Thinking of starting a farm group, for TS and Vendor trash. Couple of questions:
1 - if I want minimal settings on this crew, is it recommended I run them from a different EQ directory (ie a new install)
2 - Do I have to purchase another VV from RG?
1. If you want to run like two sets of settings, yes. High settings for your played group, low settings for a background farmers set. You might be able to do some kind of work around batch file start, where it swaps out your eq ini file before starting, but two installs is pretty simple.
2. No, one Vanilla sub works for multiple setups even multiple computers. I have one Redguides sub and I run/update it on three computers at my house.
