    Pretty much I think. And I just spent all that time updating the rune library listings too.
    I put a picture of one of the new maps on the UHall thread. They're totally different, on all facets, and the one I read is just behind Compassion Shrine in the desert. There's no spot there in the current maps.

    I used to have runebooks for colored ore locations.. 1 or 2 books for each ore. I can't tell you amounts I was offered for them (found them at an IDOC) and then a patch like this hits making them all... worthless.

    **** happens.

    You're right, Drax. I did not have runebooks for ore, but I marked up UOAM with all the colored ore at my favorite spots. That become worthless when they randomized the colors. I am in no way complaining about the changes. They were desperately needed. I guess Kelmo can decide what to do with the books when he takes over the port.

    Yeah... I didn't think you were complaining. Was just empathizing with your situation.

    What will be needed now are area based books with good names. All those little islands and geographic features need a consistent naming scheme.


    Maybe a highrez map with area names could be posted on Stratics somewhere so when I go to remake the t-map books I can stay with that data?
