    "So fire-colored cacti are cool but... is that *all* the Naturalist quest gives anymore?"

    This is something we're investigating. As an update to last week's post about colored new plants, this may be a bug that the fixing of which would eliminate those colors in the new plants. We'll keep you posted, but I wanted to make sure y'all were aware of the possibility that they will go away, since it's contrary to what we posted last week.

    --

    More Publish 56 updates

    The big stuff is still making its way to QA, but here are some more bugs that are looking pretty solidly fixed right now:


    Making the "weapon switch" macro work with spellbooks
    Fixing an issue where axing spinning wheels while they're spinning can break them
    The ability to disarm a shield with the Disarm special move should go away
    Fixing some issues with the hiryu dismount move
    You'll be able to find a healer on Nu'Jelm!
    Fixing some issues with commanding your pet to attack or kill and the pet not responding consistently
    Fixed a bug where the Inquisitor's Resolution sometimes spawns in an unreachable area
    A number of minor display bugs - tooltips not showing the correct information, that sort of thing
    We've got more coming in all the time, plus the live event, prep work for Halloween (you didn't think we'd forget about Halloween, did you?) and more! It's gonna be a monster publish.

    --

    What's To Come:

    Publish 56 schedule update - at this point we're looking to get it on Test Center in two weeks (the week of the 13th) in order to give QA a fair shot at it. It'll sit on TC for a week or so, then Origin, then live - the usual pattern. We know this is an unusually long wait for this event, but it's complex and involves quite a few systems, so we're spending as much time as it takes to make it work.

    I hate to be a whiner, but I have to say this was the weakest FoF I have ever read.

    Should just leave that bug in the game. It would be a good way to catch all the people who script the gathering of those high end Doom spawning items.

    Yep.

    I think we can forgive L for not jumping right on this and posting immediately. Talk about your Non-newsworthy items.

    I sure hope there is absolutely great stuff in the works to keep the teams from giving Jeremy anything to work with.



    *sigh*

    Maybe they will pleasantly surprise us with something really cool and unannounced.:please:

    Why even bother with Five on Friday now

    Should just call it "Friday round up" - player events with a footnote about any changes coming up

    A shame to see a fairly innovative idea go to waste but, well, I guess it sort of shows that players dont give them any questions!

    I think it says we need to ask more...

    I guess I'm just hoping like heck that this publish coming up really is as good as they let on.

    And I am happy to hear that they aren't going to forget Halloween!...

    *crosses fingers it's good this year*

    Oh and I was just thinking you could use the muffin and color it orange and call it a pumpkin decorated sugar cookie.

    Is it just me, or is this "Five on Friday" really One on Friday?

    Of all the things wrong with the game, this is what warrants the attention of the developers?

    I mean, seriously, who found this bug in the first place? Is there an "OCD feng shui spinster" demographic in game that I'm unaware of?

    IMO, the mass ban fiasco really pissed off Jeremy and resulted in her silence - everyone complained about dupers for runining uo economy before the ban and complained again without knowing solid facts after the ban for "wrongfully banning the innocent".

    The result? Jeremy just does her job now. As for this week's FOF being light, she really doesn't have much to say.

    I feel jipped as usual on the farce on fridays, today was not a five on friday it was a one on friday, with a mention of a upcomeing publish and notes of the upcomeing player run events

    The inquisitors bug was a good bug because someone who used multi clients to get themselfs into the room would not naturally page becuase they were the only ones on the pads to get in the room.

    The IR spawning in a inaccesable location made pageing a gamemaster necissary adn stoped the ones who camped them like they camp the hammer, claw, and blade, not have the monopoly on the items

    Just like all the other people on 'UO' they are currently working on WAR.

    Seems like she answered some of the more asked about questions. (the plant thing has been bugging me for a while) She was nice enough to give a heads up about the possible discontinuation of colored plants. She gave a clear idea of what's being worked on right now by the team and made it clear that they're going to get it right the first time with the upcoming events. I'm impressed. Just because there are only a couple actual questions answered doesn't mean that it sucks. I see more people complaining than posting questions towards her. Maybe if the UO community wants developers to communicate they can be a bit more specific about what they want to know and ask questions adressed to Jeremy as opposed to "this sucks. the name is five on Friday."
    I'm really looking forward to the upcoming event. It just kind of aggrivates me that everyone complains instead of being thankful for the information they did get.

    After checking the approximate dates I have one question to ask. Will we be getting Trick or Treating before Halloween is over?
     
  22. Flora Green

    Flora Green Guest

    She, as usual, said nothing. Instead of replying about the plant color bug that Regine is already aware of, why won't ANYONE say something about the new plant lockdown bug we've been talking about since they first came out?? Why won't they fix the important bug? Why won't someone acknowledge that it even exists?

    Why was there NOTHING said about the anniversary, one way or another, regarding if they are giving anything out?

    This FoF was nothing more than an ad once again for in game events.
     
  23. Lesa

    Lesa Guest

    Hope they don't leave the solo, non tamers out in the cold. And give us a chance to partisapate in the halloween event.

    The halloween event with the orange and black ghouls was the best ever!! (because a solo warrior or mage could partisapate...and win as well).
     
  24. Radun

    Radun Guest

    and the 'one' was actually no new info... all it said was basically 'we are looking into it'... and then went on to contradict what was said in one of last week's "Five" on Friday.
    also:
    Seriously, linking to upcoming player run events should not count... I mean COME ON

    I feel like i just got a dirty sock for a birthday present. Thats how I feel about the FoF almost weekly. If dirty sock doesnt cut it for you perhaps try the dangling carrot thingy. :D

    She said monster bash when it comes to Halloween... I really, really, really hope Halloween isn't going to be filled with only creature killing stuff. I've always really liked Trick-or-Treating because it was something I didn't need to be combat orientated to enjoy. I just hope it isn't the same items as last year. -sad face-
     
  27. id love to see it like it was last year!! the mag invasion was one of the best events in uo history...period. lets blow up something this year,,,personaly id love to see all houses that should be decaying , like the one i own on drach "acct has been dead little over 2 years and its still standing" go to unstable on the house signs,,,,,spawn light demons in random parts of our uo world and let us go to town blowing up these old houses that clutter the lands :)

    I have understood "weapon switch" in this item as "EquipLastWeapon" and translated as such on my site.

    But EA Japan has posted a translation of FoF on their official site today and they translated "weapon switch" as "Arm/Disarm" macro.

    Which is right? Is "weapon switch" actually "Arm/Disarm"?

    editted:
    I asked Jeremy about this. She answered: EA Japan is incorrect and "weapon switch" means "EquipLastWeapon".

    Thanks a lot, Jeremy!
