    I have just murdered an innocent, stripped all the valuables off of his still bleeding corpse and am sheathing my blade when I see down the road a posse of 5... nay 8 ready to avenge this mans death. Some throwing objects, some casting spells, and others shooting arrows at me and my loyal steed.

    I take off into the forest! I dodge trees, random gravestones and trolls! They are gaining on me! I must escape to live another day, my element of surprise being my best weapon against these foes!
    My trusty steed keeping me just ahead of my pursuers when suddenly....

    A little wren flies in front of my 1000 pound steed and stops him in his tracks! A swear word escapes my mouth as I negotiate around the little birdie (I just killed a man but not this birdie no way!) to continue. Dodging arrows and getting plagued by spells. Then a moment later a little bunny hops out of his hole and instead of trampling it like any loyal steed should... again my horse STOPS COLD!

    Apparently, my evil steed is terrified of small animals.
    I desire to teach my steed to trample small animals. It is what any good ravenous murderer would do!!


    (This post is a tongue-in-cheek post just for fun, no animals or real life human beings were injured as a result of this post. I do not expect the dev team to remove push-through. Just an example of something that's a little bug of mine and thought it might give some others a little laugh because I know I'm not the only one.)

    and ye did not go arse over teakettle when the nag stopped? were ye glued to the saddle, perhaps?

    nice smile-bringer. thanks!
     
  5. *phew!* thought the thread was about "new pet dyes" ... :lol:

    Poor flutter ... IF you "teach my steed to trample small animals"
    It wouldn't necessarily cause him to turn red ... need a reporting system from the animals
    and >you may<, already, dismount and command him to do so?

    Your "request" is for a mounted steed to do harm and damage upon those it is ridden against?

    A "physics" re-vamp would be required to make it so ...
    *considers*

    For a mounted steed Only ... /signed

    (edited for stupidity)

    And my horse is already red... like me... hence the title of the post.

    But the whole post was lost on you :(
    It's okay I didn't expect everyone to get it!

    I'm going to give you a second to think on what you just said and what you typed before. Red could be found in a whole new light, or body parts.

    Noway man.
     
  12. heh!
    now that the math errors are somewhat corrected,
    I'll suspend my /signed of SUPPORT until such time as the status of your horse is fully&correctly described.

    I do NOT believe your horse is "red"
    a simple screeny may suffice, re: color

    >the other< aspect re: red ... I do not believe is correct.

    A murderer's (as you described yourself) >reputation DOES NOT (as I understand it)< TRANSFER to the associated mounts and/or PETS.

    ergo: My horse is red like me. is Factually >incorrect<
    by my current understanding of the Ultima Online fame/reputation system.

    I welcome your evidence to the contrary ...:party:

    You're confusing as always. But I will say this... pets do take the color of their owner. Wether it be Red for murderer, Blue for ... blue... or Green for Guildie.

    I appreciate that Flutter is a favorite around here, but satire is not limited to her.

    If you really don't get it I guess I could explain?

    Let me know.

  19. Hummmm >sounds plausible<

    A simple screeny will suffice ... a RED horse not mounted by a rider, oughta do it.
    buy a fresh mount from a stable, before mount, during, after ...

    Good gosh!

    Have you NEVER been to fel (seen a red) or been red?

    If you are red, your pets are red.

    End of story.

    You see my concern on this post?
    Live as a red, die as a red.
    God'damb it you lot that got us 'another' wave of 'balancing' rubbish.

    I can't even log into my account to re-activate my accounts that EA kindly cancelled 3 days AFTER taking the cash out of my bank.

    Yes i'm bitter and yes i shall carry on posting my (and others) dismay at treatment untill it's resolved or i finally give up :bdh:

    lol... Did you read the whole post? It was supposed to be light... in fun, and taken that way. I wasn't complaining about going red. I wasn't complaining that my horse is red. It wasn't posted in an angry or ranting matter. I am not asking anyone to change anything. It was one of those "God I hate when that happens" kind of post because it's happened to anyone who's pvp'd.

    If I had known this post would turn into this lol... wow. :thumbdown:

    you are so right on the mark with this thread any critter of small sise except snakes and perhaps a few other things should get run down by mounts the whole stamina thing is pure bs when it comes to fel i can understand vs players and vs large monsters but bunnies and sparows OI. As to the person who said it does not become red ext ext read up on uo alignments karma transfers to pets if you get to -1000 karma your pet is the same just the way it is if your red as flutter said so is the pet pretty basic i would say.
     
  29. heh! if i'd a known ... :lol:
    hmmmm ... reds hanging up on trivial objects
    Red PvPer's being in the slightest inconvenienced by mobs or terrain ...
    hmmmm ...

    yeah ... who'da thunk it ... :lol:

    Thank you for clearing a simple conversion error(pounds TO stone)
    Thank you for Trying >at< a humorus post (I got it and requoted)

    I completely remove my suspended /signed support and hereby rephrase it as:

    :scholar:Game physics need an overhaul ...
    After Loot-tables and Spawner points |
    and After Dungeons are re-visited (under newLootT and newSP) |
    and after those: Group alignments and privileges within and without(parties and guilds and Factions and ... yeah that) |
    and after the existing "crafting incongruities" are similarly "smoothed"
    (cloth and wood >= metals/hides/scales| scaled against the "embuing/raveling" : MESS)|
    and after graphics and animations get their little promised/on-going? *ahem* tweaks|
    Game physics need an overhaul ... / signed ... well ... penciled in ... pending "the new guy's" VISION ... :gee:

    Well, if we were to believe the elves, the natural world is very protective of it's creatures.

    So perhaps the horse isn't frightened so much of the actual animal, but the strong feeling that it will be maimed by Mama Britannia herself if it steps on the stupid rabbit that won't get out of the way.

    Of course one might ask the horse why the hell can't it jump over the stupid bunny, but perhaps it has aerophobia.

    Have you asked?

    great post even if fayled had to throw in his daily 10 posts of sentence fragments, nonsense, and <>'s.

    Nice to see a fun post made it in between all the UO haters and whiners that clog Uhall daily.
