    We try not to take shards down midday unless there's a compelling reason to - it makes people cranky.
     
  4. I understand. But it makes people equally cranky to wait all day (for something that was supposed to happen that day) just to be told...tomorrow.

    Oh well...it could be worse...like next week. lol Thanks
     
  5. [​IMG]

    By the way ...[​IMG] ... just as well start drafting an explanation for this one:

    # BODs now have a 10 second wait time between turnins
    # NPCs now vocally acknowledge a BOD turnin

    Specifically the 10 second bit ... last nights HOC ...
    yadda yadda

    Play on!

    There was actually a hilarious degree of confusion backstage as to what "tomorrow" actually meant - 5AM tomorrow during the maintenance? Staged tomorrow, to go out the following maintenance? Manually published midday?

    Sorry about the confusion - by mid-chat, we were all pretty punchy. It had been an exciting day :p
     
  13. Ah...well then perhaps a quick note earlier would have help calmed the restless.
    Okay...probably not. lol

    Thanks Jeremy [​IMG]

    So is it 5 seconds or 10 seconds? In hoc, draconi said 5 seconds, whats going on?

    Are we going to get a list of when the event (scavenger hunt) is going to be on each shard? Or is there just going to be "live" after maintence?
     
  15. So in other words, Oceania gets valentines gifts the day after valentines, seeing as today is Valentines in Oz and we have already had todays maintenance.

    For a supposed international game, the lack of fore thought shows.
     
  16. Thank you devs for this wonderful update.

    I've been saving up and trading for BoD's/Hammers/Kits ever since this change was announced.

    I currently have
    1 Valorite Hammer
    3 Agapite Hammers
    12 Gold Hammers
    513 Shadow Hammers
    32 Bronze Hammers
    3 Copper Hammers

    22 Barbed Runic Kits
    54 Horned Runic Kits
    37 Spined Runic Kits

    619 Leather BoDs
    442 Metal BoDs

    And probably another 200-300 waiting to be sorted and filled. Those would be done too, but C++ and ASP.NET programs have been keeping me rather busy for the past 2 weeks.

    Well I feel outnumbered. I filled 48 bods, about 10 large, the rest small, and I thought I had accomplished something amazing. LOL

    Show off! *grins*

    Like I said, Theo is THE man to talk to about crafting in this game. Reminds me of the first person I met in UO, Lord Korick Stonedown Legendary Smith. He's the one that got me started crafting.

    I'm going to have to pick it up again...I do love crafting!

    See, you did 10 large, which is more than I CAN fill, so don't feel bad. [​IMG]

    Besides, it's not quantity that matters - it's how much you enjoy what you do. I smith/mine whenever I find the time to. I don't have much to show for it like others, but it doesn't mean I'm not passionate about crafting in UO, or that I don't get immense satisfaction out of what little I do accomplish.

    It's been fun, and it's been done 100% honestly - Not many can say that, and that's good enough for me. [​IMG]

    Three months ago, upon finishing his tour of all the known workshops of the world, the head of the Sosarian Crafters Quality Commission was dismayed. He found that the guildmasters were collectively surely and disorganized. They barely recognized the efforts of those who were working diligently to fill their orders; just snatching the deeds and tossing measly compensation at the crafter.

    Indeed, they even didn't seem to care about their working conditions what with Bulk Orders Deeds and shovels strewn across the workshop floor.

    So he set about change. Guildmasters had to go for training in dealing with the public, including all the pleasantries (such as acknowledging the crafters existence), and taking the time to meticulously file each and every BOD that comes their way.
