    I have read somewhere on the net that 8x8 boating for training is no longer possible on UO. Does anyone know if thats true? I was under the impression as long as it was done without scripting that it was ok.

    There is just no need to do it any more. For example, you can stand in the same place and cast magery spells over and over again and you will eventually gain. No need to be on a different spot.

    But with 8x8 you could get consecutive runs of 3 or more in a row. I know casting on a spellbook works but haven't been as lucky with musicianship, peace or archery

    8x8 no longer works, they gave us GGS instead.

    they made a change which accidentally broke 8 x 8, but it's not needed now.
    you can stand in one spot and area peace yourself for gains. Many people train melee skills on golem. Personally I prefer to gain through play.

    Does this change have any effect on taming. For instance can you get gains off of your tames ie: tame same bull over and over.

    No, you have to tame different animals if you want any sensible gains - though taming redefines the word "sensible" like poisoning does!

    No, because of the coding that allows non-tamers to re-tame their pets if they accidentally go wild.
