    With the new year approaching, how about putting up a top 3 or top 5 wishlist of things that should be simple to implement and would add a lot of value to the game? Keep it simple, and maybe we'll see devs implementing this stuff over the next year.

    Here's mine

    1) 720 skillpoint cap available to characters of all ages (instead of 4 years as it is currently), or +5 points per month of active subscription. You'd get 1-2 additional accounts from me if this feature be implemented.

    2) Checks capable of storing more than 1 million gold, or an alternate secure way to store and transfer large amounts of gold coins.

    3) COMMUNICATION! Minium of 5 relevant dev-posts on these boards per week! We're a small community and becoming smaller by the month. The game is all about community though, and it would help tremendously if the devs were a part of that.

    Well hmm....

    1) More PvP... Just because I want it doesn't mean I know how to Achieve it though. (For me, a reason to be in Fel when PvP ISN'T happening would be the biggest help because imo that's the only way people are going to stay in Fel long enough for PvP TO happen.)

    2) 10 Mill Checks I'd say would be great & I really like that idea !

    3) The Heavy Armor Revamp / Weapon Balance publish is something I'm really looking forward to. I just enjoy being given a whole new set of rules / items etc & asking myself "What can I do to kick-butt with these new rules ??" Be it PvM OR PvP heh.

    Oh boy only 3?

    1) Increased communication. Please don't let the progress go by the wayside. I know you are excited to get a publish out as well but DON'T rush it. We want them too but we also want them to "work" as intended.
    Let us know when you activate a publish too........ don't just turn it on. Hello! We need to know.

    2) Make more things stack. We are bursting at the seams. You keep adding nice stuff but it don't stack! HELP! Grass...... no stacking??????? Snow tiles??????? NO STACKING! WHY!!!!!!! Please if you put something in think STACKING! #1 priority anymore. Stop giving us stuff to choke up our already precious space.

    3) Revamp the loot system... and for gods sake know that 99% of us have ZERO use for Cursed, Can not be Repaired and Brittle crap. The only thing they are good for is making relic frags.... unraveling... I want stuff to last me awhile I don't have time to constantly farm up more stuff that's going to break in a weeks time. I want to play, RP, Kill PvP, PvM, enjoy things not maintain. If all I have time to do is maintain where is the fun in that?

    So just think about what is "fun"....... maintaining or exploring, building and advancing? I would chose advancement and building... Give us the tools to expand our fun.... not put us into a maintenance cycle. I don't want to have to spend 40 hours a week maintaining my suit, my loyalty, my virtues, etc... I want some time to spend with my friends.... hunting and gathering, fighting and battling.

    Larger checks should not be allowed. It will just lead to larger amounts being duped.

    Rather they follow through with what they said about turning gold into an account bound number accessible by any of your chars.

    These posts are so stupid. Bigger checks has nothing to do with duping. If you could dupe a mil check you could dupe it 10 times to make 10 mil or dupe a 10 mil check once. Checks dont' create duping bugs.

    What about my bod book with 20 val hammer completed bods. Should that be outlawed too because that one item is worth over 140 mil.

    The fact we are limited to 1 mil checks is stupid. THere are things in game that cost way more than 125 mil and its stupid that you can't easily trade for them. People have billions of gold. Having to shove 100 or 200 million on a vendor to store it is stupid.

    They should have introduced platinum coins at a 1000 to 1 ratio. 1ooo plat = 1 mil gold. Only way to get plat is convert gold to it and vice versa. Solved. Then we can sell stuff for reasonable numbers again.

    I thought they were already working on a switch to account based gold total instead of physical checks?

    Anyway
    1) Fix the broken housing.
    2) Revamp all monster loot to use the new system.
    3) Update Doom with new Artifacts... usable ones.

    I do like the idea of checks over 1mil, or the platinum coins for conversion. Also the removing of gold and making it an account-bound number works for me.

    My wish list is:

    -Updates to the UO.com website, as far as the guild/faction searches go. Also the account managment system that is in place currently is wayyy to confusing to new or returning players. I had a hell of a time updating my info at the time, and still have issues when I need to log in and change things.

    -16 year veteran reward = Ability to place a second house on an account (some restrictions... say if you already own a castle, you can only place a 5x5, or something along those lines)

    -Automatic plant feeder, similar to the flake sphere for aquariums. Raised garden beds take care of the feeding/watering, but it gets annoying to water 40 plants growing in New Magincia.. and if i go on vaccation irl for a week, im not bringing a puter with me to water my virtual plants. I suppose this one isnt too high on the 'to do list'

    Happy Holidays everyone! Stay safe

    For me, 3 wishes is 2 too many... Make it so new and intermediate players have the ability to obtain common items everywhere. Finish the in-game vendor search - that's my one wish.

    Alot of updating needs to be done;
    Weapons - Speed / base damage / Specials. Too many unused weapons. Throwing has the best damaging weapon and they are ranged on top of it. Would be nice to use a hally or war hammer again outside of whirlwind at spawns. (nerf throwing weapons/specials and buff legacy weapons/specials IMO)

    Necromancy -Mystics/faction bandaids too easily remove the curses required to make it viable/enjoyable. Revenants sucks badly, need to inherit some HCI or maybe even weapon skill based on the caster's Necro/SS. Needs another spell similar to poison strike that deals a different type of damage (fire or cold).

    Loot - Right now you get better loot from killing lizardmen in Wrong than you do killing paragon balrons. Legacy dungeons should have the new loot system without butchering the classic feel. (Keep the same mobs in the same spots and just adjust their loot and stats).

    Right. Either you have alot of first hand experience with duping or you're just really stupid on how duping a bag full (125 items) of 1 mil gold checks is a hell of alot less damaging than duping a bag full of 1 billion gold checks.

    1. Better communication. Seems like each new person in the top position keeps promising that, and is lying through their teeth. I said it with Cal and I said it with Jeff... right on both accounts.
    a- bring back weekly postings
    b- stratics shouldn't be the place to get UO updates. You have a pop up opening screen- use it- it's really not THAT hard.
    c- the idea that the supposed producer can't piece together a posting/update at least every 2 weeks is a joke.

    2. Vendor search system

    3. For luck to let you know how/when it effected the loot. For old system, what it increased- new system- what it actually did.

    4. Get rid of the turkeys as champs. forever.

    5. An update there they don't bring back every dup bug ever made, where QA actually test the update.

    1. Revamped loot system in all dungeons, spawns & T-maps/SoS'. I swear I read somewhere that the loot system will eventually be everywhere. (can never be soon enough) ;)
    2. Slight tweaks down for Throwing, Poisoning, & Casting Focus. Slight tweaks up to Melee weapons & Non-med-able Armor.
    3. (Which should be #1) Advertise UO. even if it's on the patch/login screens of Other EA games.

    Find ways to bring new players in. Maybe add Ultima Online to a combo subscription of a bundle of EA games as a first step.

    1) PROMOTE UO TO THE WORLD - lack of product marketing has now left us with almost an empty haven. and while your there improve the new player experience.
    2)EC High Resolution Artwork
    3)New loot system to all dungeons - and some nerfing of the frequency of negative effects like brittle
    4)communication about currently known bugs - prime example alot my stuff fell outside my house on SP while customizing last night - code a warning page for about this before committing my house to customize mode?. or put it on the login screen... or anywhere really. JUST ADVISE :D

    1. Quality Check all new code written. I mean actually put in on a alpha test shard and use it thoroughly before it's even put on a shard players have access to.

    2. Complete the in-game vendor search system.

    3. Lighten up with the new changes to old dungeons. Leave some alone so casual players have dungeons to hunt in.

    1) After turning some crystals into dust. How about turning Black Rock into a dust and change their current mat needs to the dust. Dust stacks

    2) Revamp the BOD reward list.

    3) Couple UO only GM/Observers to strike the fear of Draconi into the hacks & bots. Hunt down the account profiting off junk accounts.

    Again - arguement that makes no sense. Why allow any piles of gold then?

    There are hundreds of things in game worth more than 1 mil gold. If someone is duping for speed - dupe a bag of xfer tokens, or forged metal tools etc etc.

    Most of the dupes in the past were duping of items rares/equipment and not checks. Val hammer bods, the changling bug with worn items etc. Whether we have gold checks for 2 mil or 10 mil will have zero effect on the level of dupes. All it does is promote scamming as people try to find ways to complete 125m gold and up transactions. Whether you like it or not - things cost more than 125m and making it a pain the butt to complete transactions is not good for the game.

    You don't have to be a part of the duping to know these things were going on esp when fixes are put into place patching the issues. Gold checks are a complete red hering.

    After the last gold dupe on Atlantic prices on alot of things double / triple and there was almost no item that did not get more expensive this makes it very hard for honest players to keep up

    If they dupe items the prices on these items will go down but the rest will stay the same

    so in my opinion gold dupes are alot worse because everybody is effected by it

    Customization is the key so my character,and house,wont look like every other one in the game.What I would like the Devs work on:

    1) Rework alot of artwork when it comes to the look of armor and weapons. Why can we not have many different looking shortswords? With the addition of Garg weapons,the old humanoid weapons look very plain by compareson.

    2) Create many new styles of wall and floor tiles that we can use to customize our homes. There is a lot of potential with what can be added to housing.

    3) Customizable pets. Not just in color,but also in ability and skill. A pet breeding system,just like FF7(for those that remember). To say that there is alot of potential for player-created pets in UO would be an understatement.

    Most people posting these forums have absolutely no problem with Stratics mods. If you do, maybe you should consider that the fault may lie in your posting style.
    People who don't troll and don't attack other posters don't get infractions.

    1. Loot system as stated above activate for all mobs
    2. Loot system allow luck over a certain amount to help reduce negative properties, as it stands luck hurts your overall chances to get anything decent
    3. Vendor search

    1. Fix to armor, so metal, wood and scala armor again get useful and Smiths and Carpenters again get useful
    2. Some love to Fletchers, let them make some showing weapons and maybe some casting spears
    3. More bazaar vendors around the land, maybe let players place them in their shops. Not sure about the vendor seach as it can hurt too.
    4. New loot for overlands monsters and some of them need a little more power too so not only newbies will traveling / hunt the overland. Deep forest need stronger mobs, also stronger animals. A dire wolf or a grizzly should be more dangerous.
    5. Make classic houses on Siege cost the same as on normal shards, I'm tired of seen ugly sand stone cube houses, when players don't have house building skills, I rather saw them place a classic house.

    1- Equipment/weapon balance. Balance all non med armor to be comparable to woodland, all meddable comparable to leather. Balance weapon speeds and damages. Give gargoyles more options, but nerf the ridiculously high base resists. Complete balance is the key, allows players to create their own identity instead of having to be a clone of .everyone else.

    2- Fix 2 handed attack animations in the CC. Im tired of using my axe as a banner while i punch dragons to death.

    3- Constant, long term events not run by EMs. Create a story line and implement it in game through NPC questing, invasions, whatever. Have its progress based on player participation, not month long waits do to overworked staff not having time to work on it. Implement the entire story line at once and let it play out. Have another ready for when its done.

    Oh, and one more biggy - let me have a bigger game play window in the CC.

    He's not alone here... It's so hard to really speak "freely" due to favoratism and well some that are biased that it really kills the enjoyment of being able to post here on stratics. I can understand trolling and wanting attention, but even the moderators are humans and I think sometimes they take their hobby alittle to extreme to the point of making it so we can't express our own opinions about certain things without being, what "infacractioned" or having our post removed without question, yada yada. Just my two cents, think of it what you will.

    I agree with this statement. We have been given a "No posts about religion and politics",but I have replied to some political themed thread just to get a warning about not posting about politics and witnessed that the post I replied to remained intact. I guess your post/thread is safe as long as the Moderator on duty agrees with what you say.Otherwise you'll be warned and your post/thread will be removed for political correctness sake.

    An official UO forum would be good. :p

    3 in-game things off the top of my head:

    1) In-game private messaging/whisper system. It's really lame that in 2012, soon to be 2013, UO is the only MMO I've played with the absolute worst in-game system for communicating with other players. The re-implementation of the chat channels was a start, but it's time to make interacting with players more friendly. MMOs are meant to be about interaction but UO goes out of its way to ensure there are barriers which don't encourage that. This is really basic stuff.

    2) Vendor search/Auction House. I have a lot of useful stuff to sell but I don't have a Luna vendor and I don't have the time to sit around spamming general or trade chat all day. It's archaic. Time to give everyone an equal opportunity to trade with others.

    3) The ability to switch characters without having to repeatedly log in again. Yet another archaic system showing its age. When you "logout" you should drop back to the character selection screen and not the login window. Either that or give us back the ability to save our passwords again so we can instantly login.

    1. Vendor Search
    2. High Resolution Artwork
    3. A way to trade larder amounts of gold safely in game without having to use a 3rd party / or bigger cheque amounts. 10m would be ok.

    Hmm, I don't think I could narrow it to just 3, but I will keep it short:

    1. Complete the In-game Vendor Search that was talked about

    2. I am not sure what to call it, but they talked about gold in the bank being converted from checks/gold, I would like to see that completed

    3. They talked of new tamables and revamping old ones, I would like this completed. I would so love for my White Wyrm to come out and hunt with the big boys.

    4. In-game private messaging

    Not as important to me, but I would also like:

    High Resolution Artwork (though this might bring more players, so that would be a GREAT thing) and the ability to switch characters without having to log in again (I cannot remember why this ability was removed)

    Well, I'm no game developer, but most ideas don't sound like they would be all that "simple" to implement. I guess the one suggestion I'd really like to see, though, would be the in-game vendor search. That would be a boon to all UO players.

    And a reason for using a fisher again. The sea, the boats, cannons, fishes, lobsters, and bosses ..pies, pirates , NPC ships.. everything is out there, but too expensive and time consuming to ever go out there again.:sad3:

    Mine:

    1. High Resolution Graphics and EC bug fixes to make it the client people WANT to use.

    2. Shard-wide Vendor Search

    3. Revamp the Virtue system to work via quest lines and mini quests like in the original games with a quick trip to "meditate" at shrines to maintain levels instead of grind/decay.

    They need to find a programmer who was involved in setting up the User Interface for a game like WoW or D3 and bring him in to polish up the EC. When half a games playerbase won't use a new client and is willing to skip having all it's bells & whistles, and stays with an old client, the new client needs some work.

    The people who made the CC knew what they were doing and made something good, those who made the EC were not as talented. EA needs to find someone with client coding for a popular game on their resume and bring them in to fine tune the EC and make it the client people want to use. Bug fixing & graphics alone isn't going to do it.

    1, 2, and 3: A decline in the disdain for our volunteers who have, at significant personal expense, sacrificed their energy, talent, money, and time to author helpful content for the beloved title Ultima Online, and whose content continues to be the most significant catalyst for UO-related organic traffic on the Internet, and which helps integrate new users into a very unforgiving community of veteran players before the widespread bitterness drives them away.

    I can dream, eh?

    Well at least you got a warning. Who the hell checks the stickies every day or log in. Like in game chat we have ignore here also. Some I feel just give one line comments and never back why they think the way they do just for the post count.

    It aint the UI that is the biggest problem with the EC, it's the GRAPHICS. The only thing I use UOA for is filling small BODs, it is no longer needed to make items. I can do everything with the CC UI and I get to look at graphics that do not give me headaches.

    2) Do something with Siege Perilous

    3) Bring guild page back to uo.com
