Hail: hehe, Post and Flame away at each other, Weeeeeeee. Exploits are using something outside the game to give you an advantage of some kind in the game. Speedhacks as example. or, Taking advantage of Game Mechanics in a way that UO deems is to big of an advantage. Game Mechanics are the things that the game will allow you do, even though it was or may not have been set up that way. Some of these are bad, and some of them most of us do everyday. Teleporting onto Roofs at the Bank, or other buildings, as example. This was never intended. Why does the Moonglow bank have that teleporter up there now? Because of all the players that got up there, and could not figure out to get down. The Game never intended for us to be on rooftops. Why are those flowers, and that fountain outside the fence by Moonglow Bank.? In the old days you could stand outside the fence, "out of guard zone", and shoot arrows at the guards at the bank, and kill them, and get all their stuff. First UO put up a sign that this was not allowed, and later they blocked off the area. Teleporting onto tables that monsters cant reach you at. Teleporting to safe spots. Blocking monsters in with various items. Going across server lines to heal, and then back. Hell, even going in/out of dungeons to heal. To different degrees these are all part of Game mechanics. It becomes an Exploit when EA says it is. They Tell you stop, and maybe later they try to prevent it from being possible at all. So, when does a Game Mechanic go from being OK, to becoming an Exploit? For this discussion, we are talking in game only, and not using any outside script, or program.
