Is there a way to UN-Alter an Item?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Kandorian Demons, Apr 15, 2010.

  1. Is there any way to UN-Alter an Item from Gargoyle back to human? If not could we please get that option?
     
  2. I don't think there is at the moment.

    It would be great to expand the alter button into a menu for races/genders.

    This will be available in the future, that is what I was told anyway. They want it so you can freely go back and forth between Human/Elf to Gargoyle. (i.e. if you only have 1 Crimmy, you will be able to alter it back and forth all the time to swap between characters, I have 2 Crimmys and would love this cause I only have one Garg and rather not waste a Crimmy just for him).

    Blah, blah blah in the future blah, blah, blah.....

    sounds like the same old BS to me... still waiting...

    The future is NOW!

    I think this like about 200 other things... should have been in already...

    IMO the EC and SA are still in mega beta...

    Neither are finished and both are barely playable.

    I'm trying very hard ... but I seriously do not have patience...


    Sorry Cal.... but I'm into results... STAT and ASAP... I don't care for "Soon"... or "in the future"...

    Cripes... Dev's have had how many years now working on SA and the EC???

    Far too long if you ask me to still have spots that are unreachable and stuff that has been broken since the start.

    SA not playable? SA is an expansion that consists of 2 dungeons, a race, and 3 skill sets.

    EC client? Meh.

    You do understand that they can't give exact dates, right? And if they did, if they couldn't make them for whatever reason, the player base that doesn't understand programing or anything that they do, would have a fit from a delay.

    They're obviously making progress with everything.

    Gargoyles were changed for the better, renowneds tweaked to have a greater reward for doing them, ect, ect.

    Calm down, take a deep breath, and realize, realisticly, this is never going to change.

    We don't want what you seem to want.

    Having things done by dates causes the developers to rush.

    This causes more glitches, and other detrimental effects.

    In fact, I'm pretty sure EA already does this, they just don't tell you the dates they want things done.

    You do realize they began working on SA over 4 years ago..... one would think they could get the job done by then.

    As for the EC... its filled with bugs.


    And I'll continue to point this out each and every opportunity I get... and you can pom pom wave all you like but I will not wave a single pom pom unless it's DESERVED.

    Motivation... that's what I'm after.

    Time to get off the duff and fix it.

    Time to take a look at the ancient list of bugs and get on with it.

    I'm not interested in a new land mass... I'm interested in fixing what we have first.

    I want returning players to stop saying to me.... OMG is this still bugged???

    Geez this bug was here when I left some 5 or 6 years ago!...

    and asking "Why can't I do this?".... and I have to tell them because it's bugged.

    Or asking "Why can't I get over to that part of the map?" And having to tell them it's not finished yet.

    Or how about those who love Magincia having to deal with it being in the state it is for so long?

    How many times have you heard the Town Criers tell you about ToT??? And HOW long has that been over???

    I don't know about you but I'm sick and tired of telling my friends that's a lie. And so what happens when it actually finally updates after you have told everyone to ignore it for the last year?

    Just saying...

    So you keep waving those pom poms.... meanwhile I'll keep pointing out the obvious and telling them to "GET IT DONE".....

    Because unlike you I want this game FIXED... because I care! Because I want the game I love and enjoy to be BETTER...

    Being as nearly nothing ever gets fixed for weeks or months...The way I see it is they're just doing a few things here and there and just lettin' the game go until the cost out-weighs the profit and they just end the game.

    Only time you get a real response for reporting anything is if it's macroing...Other than that they don't even care. You report a bug and you just get the nice canned response.

    I said the EC was meh, I really don't care about it. I'm not a "if it's not 2D i wont play it" I just don't like the EC, not sure why.

    I don't know why you're talking about Pom poms?

    Also, let's see you pull out (insert language UO was built on) for dummies and fix it in a weekend.

    Sad thing is, I don't think the DEVs are the BEST programmers in the business. I think it's more likely they have average or above average skill or just upstarts and thats why they're here. They could be expirenced developers who just have nastalgia for the game, though I'm not sure how likely that is. I'm not hating them if they are upstarts. It's how you start, and they're doing a fine job if they are.

    The ToT was already explained by... Mike? I dunno. But apparently the previous person in charge of it forgot to update it, and the new team didn't know to update it. That's not a bug, that's called the team changing.

    You can't blaim a bug that's 6 years old on the DEV team, for all you know, the new team doesn't even know about it, or it got lost, or it's just not that important.

    Apparently, you didn't read the whole post?

    I want the game fixed, but I want it done RIGHT.

    Rushing them is going to cause

    MORE PROBLEMS.

    You didn't read that part did you?

    Also, just because I defend them doesn't mean I'm "waving pom poms."

    I choose to defend them not because I believe they're doing everything right, but because people like you have have no knowledge of their job critize them. I know you're passionate about the game, I understand that. It's good. But don't tell them they're doing their job horribly unless you, you personally, can do what you want them to do in your required time frame.

    I also do it because no one seems to defend the DEV team, they can't defend themselves directly due to issues that'd cause.

    But how often do they [developers] truly understand the desires of the player base, just to switch that argument around.

    As I'm speaking about the programing side, that's not part of this argument.

    There's a different job title for what you're arguing for.

    I liken the DEV's to weathermen...... Both tell you stuff.... but don't deliver....

    They act like they know what's going to happen...... but the game like the weather has it's own ideas.....

    Now..... If I did my job like either one of them...... I'd kill people..... Aren't you glad I have more stringent quality control in my job?

    Trust me... I have some idea of things. But I'm picky... ok. And I want more quality.

    Quality always takes longer, you want them to do it now. Do you not see how you contradict yourself? I'm stopping here. No need to keep this argument up here or Petra will get mad, if you wanna keep discussing this, PM me.
