    Hi,

    am not sure whether I am the only one who is annoyed by that. But I freakin hate the auto phrases being spoken when drunk.

    I highly prefer to play that myself. PLEASE turn that off or make it an option toggle at least. This is ANNOYING!

    Thanky you
     
  2. toggle option for
    when you are drunk or others?

    /signed for when its you drunk, for me to toggle it off to hear

    I like the content too.

    I mean this "...I'm not wasted..." phrase ya yell out when you drink from a bottle. It's annoying. I prefer to say my own stuff.

    Is it any drink or only the new alcohol types? Also, it seems to me you have to down the entire bottle to the effects. If you take one sip and let it wear off, it doesn't seem to do the new effects. I'll test it to make certain, but I'm pretty sure there are ways to manage it all on your own without robbing other players of something quirky they enjoy.

    To role-play being drunk...do you actually have to drink the in-game booze? I mean this question sincerely, does it add anything besides the outburst that annoys you? I have not tried getting drunk in game for some time, and definitely not since the changes.

    Of course I might be missing the whole point of the moonshine game addition.

    People had asked for brewing in some form for some time now.

    Like a long time.

    Years.

    Where on earth those people are now I can't even begin to guess. We have something they wanted for years and I haven't heard from them in the slightest.

    You can roleplay being drunk without drinking in-game liquor, surely.

    Same as you can roleplay being addicted to drugs without the presence of in-game drugs. (I did it for years.)

    And people roleplayed being elves for years before there was a game mechanic for it.

    You can roleplay fighting without using the PvP mechanics. Though I for one find this odd.

    Mechanics, however, enhance the roleplaying experience in many places, and are meant to, it would seem, in all.

    Totally right.

    RP is about Playing a Role, pretty much like improvised acting - you have the part, and you play it as the character.
    There are different levels of dedication to it, from the person that just makes up a backstory for their character to the person that logs in to play that character in all ways.
    Right at the seriously dedicated end of the scale, you have people that act out their character's speech and actions, everything. For people at that end of the scale, having some words or actions foisted upon their character is just craptastic. Control over their character has just been compromised to deliver some hammy stock line from a localisation table.

    Of course, they don't have to drink alcohol. But why should they have to stop doing something they've been able to since the beginning of the game in order to mitigate it?
    Especially since you'll probably find that the RP communities are the ones most likely to use the alcohol in the first place, and long run.

    Thanks for the answers. I was just looking to see if there was a desired effect, such as the infamous unpredictable long standing hic that is best achieved through actually drinking in-game liquor. Perhaps something that just isn't the same when role-played. Something that makes the other RP'd sots scream "Hey he only emoted that, he isn't really drinking the booze!!" followed obviously by a quick "...I'm not wasted..."

    I really dislike having phrases forced on me.

    And to state this clear once more. It is not about the new content. I love it but pleeease no automatic talking.

    I'm right here. I like it overall, I just wish it had rum and ale. :p I have about 100 barrels of Whiskey in my house already, and another.. 70 or so yeast I'm sitting on, plus 50 I gave to this fellow named "Gareth"
     
  14. bah!
    >maybe< the first time is "forced"
    but ALL the follow ons occur resultant of your choice
    to drink the brew ...

    and while YOU may think so
    I doubt that >any< drunk you create

    is in any way "better" ...

    *shrugs*
    then again, I am spoiled by true artistry ...
    Red Skeleton, Jackie Gleason, Dean Martin <<< Portraying Drunks
    but I'd ne'er share a drink with any of the lot of them ...:party:

    I agree with the first post.

    On that note, I haven't drunk in-game alcohol in years except on special occasions (like a bet or a game of "drunken dragon hunting") because even *hic* didn't fit my drunk requirements.

    And I play sailors and pirates and alcoholics. I just throw away the excess booze every week or so... (funniest way to do that, I go to Felucca and if I should die to a player, they usually dry loot me, including the booze... thanks for saving me the effort folks!)

    Would be nice to be able to fill in my own drunk-talk.

    I am enormously disappointed that all this ridiculous Money Grab Garback Pack stuff has permanently ruined normal UO booze for everyone.

    Now I can't even buy a plain old ale and *hic* a bit without my character screaming "HEY BRO I'M SO WASTED LOOL" and acting like a ****** beyond my control.

    If you want some real fun be drunk when you dead, and you will end up as a naked ghost at some point.

    maybe its just me but the new effects are making the game fun for me again i've rp'd these same effects ever since day one of my character creation and to see them be put in game well let's just say i was very happy. the way i look at it is with the extra phrases being spoken it adds to my experience. one example i can use is at this past tavern night we had when my character puked up the slime the ones in charge of the tavern had someone trying to clean it up, in the past i would rp doing that same thing but since it was just a emote it often got missed and there was not that added interaction.

    Those "interactions" would still be better kept as an action button or command. Even if it would require being drunk whilst.
    Instead of forcing it up on people. It destroys the freedom in the roleplay, that's fact.

    I was speaking to a friend about this and I was saying 'A room of drunks in UO is going to be SO annoying'. And his response was 'But a group of drunks in real life is also VERY annoying'.

    So maybe it's accurate. :D

    wouldn't emoting, using the action buttons or commands still be forcing it on people as well or do you mean for the one that is drinking and getting drunk, if that is the case then i do agree with what others are saying about making it so you can choose to have the option for the new effects to be turned on or off. i know that this is just my opinion and you are entitled to yours but to say that it destroys the freedom in the roleplay is not fact its only opinion

    Heh, what if the next add-on brings some autospeech whilst fighting? Would you still think the same if your character would auto-taunt? I doubt but it would be the same.

    No, Not at all. Automatic speech is always crap.
    I love the distillery thing and I hope they will come up with other addons for rum, wine and ale.
    I just dislike having some senseless speech forced.
    The distillery is a great addition to rp but who will ever drink now when it leads to things out of control of the player? I mean as much as it adds to roleplay, it destroys in the same amount.

    I rarely complain about things that get messed up. I also gave up on reporting all the houseing bugs. Actually I gave up on house decoration since it is impossible with EC since high seas has been patched in.
    I wouldn't ever have posted if it wasn't this totally annoying.
    I want to be able to disable those crappy new sideeffects.

    I would have been fine with emotes, getting sick or what not BUT NOT with automatic talking.

    I agree 100% I keep telling Grizelda I'm not wasted. If they had to put automatic speech in they could have used something a bit more in line with the setting.

    Is the trick still working where you can fill water in an alcohol bottle?

    Never mind the drunk-speak, has anyone else had a bad tooth? My char spent several hours whining about how his tooth hurts and where's a dentist.

    I munched a couple of candy sticks in the hours prior to this tooth-decay and eventually it passed, without recourse to the dentist.

    Yes, with bottles of wine aquired by begging . But you will still get the drunk messages.

    As for the regular bottles, you cant. This ended when they made bottles insta-poof once they were emptied a long time ago. The ones you see on vendors today are relics of this time. Quite valuable for collectors since there arent much around anymore.
