Castles Recall inside walls

    Hi

    On the original UO Rule pages on the official site it has always said that castles allow safe recall to within the walls

    now these rules were written like 10 years ago

    But I was wondering --- did it officially change?


    Right now there is no way to recall to within a Castle walls -- it would be nice for vendoring and getting around if you could

    Yes, you could recall into the courtyard before. But that was changed 4 or 5 years ago. It was either with AoS or right after.

    I had a castle in the swamp right in the middle of a savage spawn and after the change it made it very hard to recall in, before only a few would spawn inside the courtyard and it wasnt so bad.

    After I would have to run in redlined on my crafter. I died more then once trying to get in.

    I sold it soon after the change.

    They should change it back.

    Nah, it's fine the way it is. If other home owners cannot gate into their homes safely, why should castle owners?...la

    It was changed due to an exploit that allowed you to enter private Castle's w/ the use of a moonstone. Moonstone's don't work any longer, so they should allow you to recall into your courtyard again IMHP.

    Of course I have two Castle's, so I may be a little biased ;)

    I also think it should be changed back. It was originally intended as a feature of castles. If you wanna keep "nerfing" things because they were "not originally intended", then in all fairness this should be reversed seeing as how it WAS originally intended.

    Rico, Id have to say your argument of "Others cant do it so why should castles" is a little weak. Others can customize their designs, so why shouldn't castles? I say either let castles be customizable or allow people to recall in. There is no logical argument against it. Anybody who is against it is most likely either upset cause they don't have a castle, or enjoying being able to ambush crafters who are recalling home.

    At least I have never heard a good logical reason as to why this should not be allowed these days.

    Think one of the nasties was to lure a player there and kill them usually noobs :gun:

    I think it would be wonderful to be able to recall into a castle courtyard but then I want to lock things down in the courtyard too. :)

    I remember being lured in to a gate and then being body-trapped within a house and being PK'd. Not fun xD

    What with the castles though, I think it should be changed back as well. In all honesty, what's the purpose of having a castle nowadays if 18x18s have more space and more custsomizable options? A castle should have some sort of benefit to it that makes it more desirable to some; recalling in to the courtyard is a way to make it special again. If they don't plan on bringing back moonstones ( I miss moonstones... ) then I don't see why they can't enable this for castles once more.

    LoL, no big deal really. I've been playing since 98, you have a tendency to accumilate things in that much time. I would have 3 castles but I once sold a castle for 15 mil gold. However that was when gold was selling for $50.00 per million on Ebay.

    I also have 10 accounts, now that's the really dumb thing ;)
     
  11. I've been playing 10 years, have two castle, almost side by side :| and many little houses its like a town : D (or so i tried for it to be :|) But yea alot of people have many Big houses :D

    Id love to be able to recall inside my castle walls. Mostly for my crafter. Theres 3-4 brigand spawn spots at the front (not including the sides) of my place, plus the random troll orgre harpy & spider that wanderon by.
    On the upside i do live right near a healers hut but getting back to the house is even worse then heh

    Just my 2cp,

    I think people should lobby to have both Keeps and Castles converted to be customizable houses.

    In my opinion, this increases the value of both far more than the ability to recall into the courtyard.

    You sold your castle because your crafter got redlined by swamp critters?

    Where the hell have all the real Uo players gone? :(

    Using another situation to defend the initial premise is in bad form. In regards to my arguement being weak, that may only because you are looking at it as the owner of a castle. I have owned a castle in the past...so you have to recall right outside the door...big deal. Two steps and your on your stairs, a quick click and another couple of steps you're in the door and safe.

    No change for you...come back two months...la
     
  16. I'd like them to fix this as well. Then I could buy a castle and recall into it. :lick:

    Well I did get $750 for it, and seeing that at the time I just placed 3 houses in luna. I thought it was a wise choice. But then again, I'm not a real UO player so who knows!!
