    1) Labels
    I found that 15 characters are a bit well short for creative names. Can we have it changed to 20 or 25 characters please?

    2) Do we get more things to brew?

    3) Are there plans to add further addons to make wine, ale and rum? If yes how do those look like?

    4) Effects
    since ya changed the effects I'd request some more changes.
    - Disable the char-turning when drunk
    - start to *hic* only if you take a second sip within a certain amount of time
    - if those crap auto-talking phrases are a must then please exchange them with some better things or give us a toggle to disable those per character

    I'll try around with the effects some more, maybe I'll have even more input on those.

    Oh and to all those whiners about TC1 - some people here got a real life and work and just don't have always the time for testing - thank you

    I agree with the longer label's. Had a hard time thinking of stuff with just 15 charaters and spaces in the labels. But problay just gonna do the one label for all and stick to it.

    Hi Sun! Hope your makin Yew Brew ;)

    Agrees fifteen characters is too few for naming your new libations. Also would love to see Rum, Mead, Ale, Wine, Pure Grain Alcohol etc.... added. oh and BEER!

    As for the drunk speech, it is amusing but I can see it getting old a toggle would be lovely.

    Agree with with 1-2-3

    I would add that i was a lil disapointed to see that the different types of liquors dont have different colors.

    I agree with not turning around. Though if your real drunk you should fall down or stumble if trying to walk but just sitting... No. Unless I get super soused then I should fall out of me chair.

    And while I haven't messed much with the labels I agree 15 is too short.

    I want rum and bloodwyne. A true Drowish drink.

    Yes made with blood.

    I would appreciate the ability to color the bottles somehow. If this is already in the game and I don't know, someone PLEASE PM me and explain... if not, I think it would be great to have a special dyetub or regular dyetub color selection to use... make each brew stand out more.

    i second a way to color them, seems kinda lame to not be able to really "customize" our brands of spirits, and 15 chars IS too short

    Just a thought. It would be funny if the color of the bottle would be calculated by the label being entered.
    So every label would have its 'own' hue. Not sure how difficult that would be but might be worth a thought.

    How about different bottles for different styles? I mean there is the glass blowing menu to add in to the shapes catagory, even the fizzy ones would add a nice touch to some brews. Also more as others have said would be a nice add on to the menu.

    Brewing beer could be out of something like the Vat looking contraption from the dungeon only a bit smaller for "home brew".

    For cooking you could add the sprits to the ingredients list for some new recipys!

    Id like to see a Milll for wine look alot more like the wheat one we have only as you add the fruit it changes the grain area the color of the fruit.
    Wine can be made of any fruit... remember that as can coniac, brandy, and many other fruit based sprits. Apple, pear, cherry(good drop off the tree we got) grapes (now here is a use for the fruit off the high seas grape vines!)banana's heck the trees from ter mur could give them.... peaches, all can ether be grown or for the non farmer the fruit and vegie npcs in towns could supply some. Mellons make a great liquor....

    We already have multi hued bottles in game, allow us to substitute one of those instead of empty potion bottles. I still have two chestfull's of the Abyss housing queest bottles - would love to bottle my own label in those!

    I've played every Ultima game ever made and never saw any Drow. Do you also play Dungeons & Dragons online and RP a Meer? Play Star Wars Galaxies and RP a Klingon?

    Guess you missed the drow plots so stop blaming the players :D there are drow at least since uo but this thread is about a completely different subject if you noticed. I politely ask you to contribute in a constructive manner.
    Thank you

    Another thought.
    It would be nice if we had a button to mark the distilled stuff with the guilds name instead of the distillers name :)

    It would be great if it was possible to pour a barrel away whilst it is maturing.
    Like when you fail the extra attempt I'd like to be able to abdone the maturing fluid instead of throwing the barrel away.
