10 things I'd like to see added to UO

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Guest, Apr 29, 2008.

    1. More uses for Cooking. How about a cooking BOD? Prep the banquet hall for a feast or something.

    2. Gambling. Come on, Buc's Den ALWAYS at least had a roulette wheel in the Ultima games. How about a slot machine? Gold is not added -- only taken from other players -- and for payout we can also evaporate part of the money as a gold sink.

    3. An Upper End Items Bazaar -- For mucho moolah you can post upper end items, which can be browsed by all players from a certain point. Specifically for players looking to buy expensive items, not just vendor sundries.

    4. NPCs for Faction Strongholds. Based on the current standings, they become more powerful.

    5. An extra bank box for people in Factions -- as another incentive to join up. Requires silver to maintain.

    6. Customizable/readable tombstones as a house add-on (Masonry).

    7. Specialized Communication Crystals that broadcast programmed messages from your guild (ie "Dungeon Crawl Starts In 34 minutes, come to Fel Skara"), up to 10 future events.

    8. The death of someone who cast Vengeful Spirit makes the Revenant disappear.

    9. More events for Fel. How about a Rich Noble who is randomly generated, with a platoon of tough guards, who moves from city to city? If you can locate him and kill him you get gold? If you join his caravan you get a percentage if he makes his destination alive? More stuff like that.

    10. A mongbat peerless. We gotta have one.

    How about BODs for all professions? Sounds fun.

    Not a bad idea...a better idea would be a system that allows houses to serve as gambling dens that are in game system free of exploits.

    A vendor search agent would be a better idea. If they could have one in DAoC I don't see why they can't have one in UO.

    Were faction guards taken out of the game? I thought faction strongholds already had guards? I know they were exploited to all hell through a slew of exploits so they might have already been taken out.

    Sorry but I don't like this idea.

    Words can not say how much I LOVE this idea...I like the dark side of UO.

    If you really want Felucca events then you should start by pushing for blessed items in Felucca or consentual only pvp. In order to have an event be worthwhile people actually have to want to go to Felucca, and please explain to me why I would want to take a 30 million gold suit to a place where it can be cut into leather just because a group of reds decided that it was funny to do so after they ganked me and I somehow didn't have enough insurance gold.

    A whole mongbat themed dungeon with named mongbats for keys, mongbat creatures, and a mongbat peerless boss. You could have mongbat mages, mongbat necromancers, mongbat paladins, mongbat tamers, mongbat warriors, mongbat ninjas, mongbat samauri and the like and the mongbats could mirror players. The main mongbat peerless would only appear after you killed a name version of each mongbat mob type and would have special mongbat named items and have a chance to drop a statue of each mongbat type.
     
  3. hey maybe it could give monster titles, The kind Bob, Annihilator of Mongbats, novice tailor.

    The one thing more that ANYTHING else I'd dearly, truely absolutly LOOOVE to se in UO....MUMAKILS!!!

    Imagine you could haul you whole guild on the back of this thing. Load up a crapload of archer buddies and rain arrows on a champ spawn.
    Maybe make them faction only and use them for faction wars!! It'd give tamers a dang good reason to join up factions. Here's a picture for you if can't quite get your head around what I'm yammering about:

    This is just utter [censored]. Atleast on my shard i see more people together in fel than i see anywhere in tram. Even in luna or wbb on a good day. Fel was the first and only facet when UO was introduced. PvP is a vital part of this game. Without it ALOT of people would quit. I dont see why the Devs should cater only to the ones who like PvM or Crafting. Theres still quite a few who play more or less fel exclusively, and events have been done in fel with success in the past. If devs took some time to plan it properly there wouldnt be a problem at all.

    Recently on Europa theres a guild that serves only to help newbies out with gear and tips and such whos arranged a sort of "caravan" between two cities in fel. Theres been massive numbers of trammies and reds alike whos worked on both sides, one side to stop the caravan, the other to help it reach its destination. The caravan has been a massive succes, mainly due to good planning, which i cant say the devs have been doing in their events. Like the scavenger hunt for one.

    Fel events can be massive fun, its a way to introduce people to PvP. And a way for people to see that not all people who play murderes are idiots.

    I really, really would like to see more events in fel, and i know if arranged properly even people who like the safety of trammel would enjoy it alot.

    In Sonoma, I spend hours stalking Felucca with my ninja stealther, and its rare when I run into anybody at all.
