most awesome idea for uo EVER

Discussion in 'UHall' started by SUPRsalad, Aug 17, 2009.

    okay, maybe not the MOST awesome idea,
    not quite as awesome as my changeable mustache with DCI/HCI etc,
    and perhaps someone already thought of this, but this is my first ACTUALLY serious idea for UO game content.

    what if we had mounts that could travel on water?? What if there were mounts that went both on land and sea? What if there were mounts big enough for everyone to ride (like a giant turtle)?
    What if we took our yew trailer park fights out in the ocean? We wouldn't be yew trash anymore, wed be PIRATES! AAAAAAAAR!

    Can we discuss this?

    Can we at least fantasize about what monsters MIGHT be?

    Awesome monsters would be:
    Big giant aligator
    Big giant turtle
    Big giant toad
    sea serpent?
    water dragon?
    Big bird that swims well? maybe just make Hiryus swim??
    The swamp dragon should be able to swim for sure.
    Spider mount? yeah i know it can't swim but come on.. spider mount, folks.
    newt/salamander. yes.
    Cuh Sidhe should TOTALLY be able to swim. my dog LOVES water.

    Advantages of fighting out at sea:
    no trees/gravestones and stuff.
    it feels like pirate.
    its very piratey
    pirates are pretty sweet.

    edit: spider mount should totally be able to walk over the top of gravestones/rocks etc.

    Um, as long as water mounts can't run / move as fast as land based mounts.

    not walk speed but mabye player run speed.

    Or even better, the creatures that can go on both land and sea move at player run speed. The creatures that can just go on water are at regular mount speed.

    Oh boy, can you just imagine having a stable master at a pier!

    This made me shed a tear for the seahorse mounts (that rode across the water, mind you) that we were originally supposed to get in Third Dawn (they even made it to test before being canned!)...

    I would love to see some high seas love! Where's the pirate expansion thread that seems to pop up periodically? :p

    I liked the Pirates and Sea Battles ideas that have been around for years. Sorry, but that would have been much more fun that riding on a ugh...Sea horse? Sea Turtle? uh.

    Sea horses were seriously considered - even animated, from what I understand. Though, I'm not sure I could - in good conscience - ride a sea horse. Maybe if the sea horse were a skeletal sea horses who shot flaming lightsabers and lived off the blood of dolphins and fairies...

    i would totally settle for a pirate expansion..
    however, the boats are WAAAY to slow.. they need to be at least as fast as non-mounted running speed. also, they need to be controlled without 'all stop. forward. back' stuff.

    why did the seahorse get canceled? Someone actually said in vent 'isn't there already a seahorse?' we all then laughed at himl.. hell be happy to know that he is not comPLETEly insane.

    seriously tho.. pirate expansion, folks..
    we need to rally for this.

    Uh... how about a rideable Kraken (same as a giant squid)? Tameable and rideable. If you can't find it in the ocean, then it shouldn't be swimming there as a mount. What else is already in game? Dolphin? C'mon... Flipper is our friend.

    They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
    No-one you see, is smarter than he,
    And we know Flipper lives in a world full of wonder,
    Lying there under, under the sea!
    Everyone loves the king of the sea,
    Ever so kind and gentle is he,
    Tricks he will do when children appear,
    And how they laugh when he's near!

    I do remember one of the devs also mentioning giant turtles as water mounts around the same time. Not sure if it was just a joke or something they were planning to do after sea horses... but there's another one for you :)

    There are actually seahorses ingame ... though you cannot ride them ...
    Remember?
    - seahorse (statuette) from a leviathan (giant kraken paragon spawned by using a fabled fishing net)
    - seahore (living) born in an aquarium

    Thats not the problem, the problem is all boats move exactly the same speed.

    You cant chase someone down on a boat, they need to have different classes of boat. So 2examples, you have a galleon which is slow, heavily armoured and good for ramming. A Skiv, which is small very fast but weak.

    Then they need to add damage to boats, like a healthbar, with say 5000hitpoints. Then you can use your boat, cannons, exp pots, conflags to damage the crew and vessel. If the vessel sinks the crew dies(oh...you cannot use spells/pets to damage the boat, would make sinking to easy) and anything the boat may be carrying is now able to be fished up from that location.

    With a chance at pulling some random [insert idea here].

    according to the adbanner, at the top of stratics there at 20 pirate games out now might try those.

    oh i love the way you think!
    also, YES on the polar bear.
    In fact, if you do the research, many other countries call polar bears 'sea bears' 'nuff said.

    Salt water croc, killer whale, giant electric eel's, dolphins could be the jet skis of UO.

    This would be totally awsome, add some more islands around the land that have forts on them, that can be seiged.

    Have spawn control the fort, so players can fight in against the mobs, but when the players take control of it the mobs stop spawning. Have their be rewards for seiging / controlling the fort. Different size forts with different rewards / toughness.

    Have the rewards be part of the fort but have the effects last beyond. Like special dye tubs, or bonus for imbuing / blacksmithing / whatever.

    Kinda building off RichDC idea:

    Tie skills into being able to captain warship's, (normal fishing boats wont be affected) say you need like gm carto, gm fishing and you can control a ship with npcs/friends arming the cannons NPC's being able to fire on command. and change the control's of the boat to the arrow keys. Then design ocean themed champspawns and expand into factions, factions could add ranks for their navy maybe offer unique ships for factions but not overpower normal ships maybe just the benefit of not having carto and fishing but rank of 1st mate or better to be able to run a faction warshhip. Blackrock can be used to fire the cannons :) When an enemy ship is sunk the Npc's die the player crew and captain get teleported to the skara docks where they have to pay a sum to repair the boat.

    that aint too shabby! dunno bout the cannons, but yeah i like the skara docks thing. (or, wherever yr naval-faction is based)
    nautical champ spawn is awesome.. especially if its a kraken.
    however, dude.. if the ship sinks, you all die.. no questions asked.

    i want a dragon boat.. it should be like a living creature, boat thing. Like the one in Zelda Windwaker, but cooler.. bigger... and it should cast spells, bite, and bleed like Greater dragon..
