    Deployment History

    September 1, 2011 - Announced and released to Test Center shard.

    Publish Notes
    Clean Up Britannia

    We are proud to announce the return of Clean Up Britannia!

    Similar to the original Clean Up Britannia and subsequent Spring Cleaning events, you may now discard your unneeded items in exchange for points good for the purchase of interesting and powerful new items. Here’s how it works:

    Use a trash can, either in public or in your house, to discard items. When the items are destroyed, you are awarded points.
    You may appraise items before throwing them out. Select “Appraise For Cleanup” from a trash can’s context menu, and target items to appraise them.
    Speak to a Cleanup Officer in New Magincia, Britain, New Haven, Ter Mur, or Buccaneer’s Den to see how many points you have, and spend those points

    Things you can Turn In

    All items which could be turned in for Spring Cleaning in 2008 may now be turned in for Clean Up Britannia
    Many older and rarer items are now worth a lot more points!
    Any leftover points for Spring Cleaning 2008 convert to points for Clean Up Britannia
    Many new items can now be turned in for points:
    Almost any item crafted from wood, leather, or metal (the rarer the material used to craft the item, the more points it’s worth)
    Almost any equipment loot drop (stronger magical item properties increase their point value)
    Gold and Bank Checks
    Raw resources such as leather, wood, and ingots (the rarer the resource, the more points it is worth)

    Things you can Buy

    Most of the items from Spring Cleaning 2008 are available in Clean Up Britannia
    The high-end item sets are available as replicas. These knock-offs are much cheaper in point cost, but have 125 durability and cannot be improved by Powder of Fortification.
    New Imbuable Item Sets are available:
    Berserker’s Gear: the wearer gains a special berserk combat effect when at low health
    Fisherman’s Gear: wearing these items enhances the effectiveness of any fish bait used by the wearer
    Virtuoso’s Gear: these items improve a bard’s Mastery Bonus
    Various new decorative and equipment items are available for sale

    Honesty Virtue

    As you travel the lands of Trammel and Felucca, you may find lost items. These items will say “Lost Item (Return To Gain Honesty)” when you mouse-over them.

    To turn in a lost item for Honesty credit: In a bank of each of the Virtue Towns (Britain, Yew, Moonglow, Trinsic, Skara Brae, New Magincia, Jehlom, and Minoc) there is a lost and found box. Put the item in the box for Honesty credit. You may use Forensic Evaluation skill to gain more information about the owner of the item. If you turn the item into the Lost And Found Box in the city where the owner lives, you will get double Honesty points for your extra effort. If you give the item to the original owner, you will get quadruple honesty points.

    Honesty gives you discounts at NPC merchants. The higher your rank in Honesty, the bigger your discount. The discount is applied to the total purchase. The discount is not shown in the merchant window, but you will see a system message once you make the purchase.

    Other Virtue System tweaks: The total virtue point cap has been increased so that it is easier to maintain Knight rank. All virtues now decay at the same rate as the current rate for Valor. (This is a significant decrease in decay rate for most virtues.) Skills that had their decay rate reduced now spend virtue when you use them.
    Anniversary Gifts

    Happy 14th Anniversary to all our players! This year we have done something a little different. We have a few new items and included last years items for anyone that may of missed them. Hope you enjoy this token of appreciate for all your years of dedication to UO. As always you have to be 30 days old to receive an anniversary gift. The gifts will stay active until October 31st.
    Guild Voting Changes

    Added functionality to resolve guild hierarchy issues when a guild has no active (characters that have logged in within the last 30 days) voting members. When a guild has no active voting members (Guild Leader, Warlords, Emissaries or Members) and only has active non-voting members (Ronins) the system will now hold a special election which will promote the guild member (Ronin) that was most recently active to become the guild master. If the system is unable to identify the most recently active member, it will randomly select an active guild member (Ronin) to promote. This special election will ONLY occur when there are no active voting guild members.
    Halloween

    This year’s Halloween Event will begin October 1st thru November 12th. We have added a special treat for you this year so keep your guard up. *evil grin*
    Bug Fixes

    Converting stoneboots to Gargoyle stone Talons will no longer give a TID error.
    You can no longer use the Sacred Journey ability to recall away to your ship when you’re flagged.
    The amount of ingots were corrected to be the same when salvaging in a bag or by the smith hammer.
    You can now salvage deer mask, bear mask, and tribal masks via the salvage bag.
    Gargoyle alterations should now recognize the small soul forge.
    Your poison skill will affect the poison strength applied to Shurikens and Fukiya Darts.
    Grape vines fished up from MIB’s will produce grape bunches (this does not apply to the ones already fished up). Non functional grape vines previously fished up can be traded in for functional items at the Ye Olde Winery in Yew.

    So Honesty will make NPCs charge lower prices?

    With Regs already at 6 and 10 in faction towns, how much cheaper can they get? And since I've already bought the high price stuff (boat, decor tool, ect) this is no great advantage to myself.

    Stupid question here, but someone posted in UHall some concerns about the effect Honesty's discount on NPC prices would have in the long run because of what happens to prices when people are both buying from and selling to NPCs.

    Since you can't sell to NPCs on Siege, would a heavy increase in buying from NPCs (because of the discount) have the potential to eventually raise NPC prices on certain commodities on Siege (e.g., gems at the jewelers) to ridiculous levels ? Having never played the little game of trying to make a profit from both buying from and selling to NPCs, I'm kinda hazy on how it all works together.

    If you read the post its all about buying/purchasing... Nothing is said at all about selling.

    No, Tina. Siege npcs don't work on the escalating prices and 500 in stock system. They're all still on the spawn 20 and work the quantity up system. Prices don't change.

    Ooooh this is good timing. With my castle nearly empty I had only been saving the Spring Cleaning stuff. Now I should get a chance to use it. Looks like I'd saved mostly the right things. Bring on the publish!

    But I hope they do turn off item bless deeds for Siege.

    Thank you, Petra. I had a feeling that was the case but wasn't sure if it applied across the board to all NPCs and their stock.

    I think I have issues with this. I can see why some want it, but a guild should belong to the guildmaster. Not only that, but it's based on being active, not just 'account active'. So if one were to log into an old mule char in an inactive guild, that char's automatically guildmaster?

    Not a fan.

    Not a perfect solution maybe, but quite a lot of guilds were totally stuck because the guild master and emissaries had just disappeared and couldn't be contacted.

    So nobody noticed that they nerfed thieves this spring cleaning?


    Use a trash can, either in public or in your house, to discard items. When the items are destroyed, you are awarded points.



    no more camping the chest to steal tickets. poor thieves always getting the bum deal of things

    We had the guild problem on Cats a few years back. While trying to leave the alliance I accidently booted myself from the guild. OOPs. What a mess that was. Billy Bob who hadnt been active in more than 6 months was now our guild leader. No matter how many of us got on with our other chars to vote in another leader he was still there. So maybe this is a fairly good fix for guilds like that.

    It baffels me that you think you should be able to make a guild, then in a flurry add 20 people, and THEN leave the game for months at a time and think that you should return back to the SAME head office position with NO information on whats actually been happening in the game.

    Most people want ACTIVE guildmasters. Not someone whos never on to let more friends in or stop wars or factions or whatever.

    Make your one man private guild and problem solved. Your responce leads me too believe your a fan of the 3 month housing gamble too. Sure, make the people that PAY for the game jump thru hoops to find a housing spot, while yours sits mothballed and randomly payed for. LAME ideaology.

    One other thing I found on test, you can not toss a bag of things in the trash barrel, it wont count it.

    It baffles me that you think you think what I think, when a little bit of thought would let one think I think other thoughts.

    Then they're perfectly fine to go find a guild with an active guildmaster, and structure it in such a way that the risk of leadership going inactive is minimal.

    Your response leads me to believe that you beat puppies to death with the tattered, soiled remains of your dictionary. Why do you hate puppies? Is it because they chewed through your umbilical cord before you had a chance to when you were left in that dumpster out back of the Puppies 'N Typographical Errors factory?

    Sorry, I didn't mean that. I tend to make **** up and apply it to other people after they make **** up and apply it to me.
