    Zephenia Welcome everyone to the Ultima Online chat on Stratics! Please post your questions to [QT]Tazar and [QT]Kiminality only. The chat will be starting momentarily!
    Mesanna Merry Christmas Everyone!
    WilkiEA Hi, I'm Wilki, and I'm a designer for UO. Good to see all of you here!
    Mythic_Phoenix Howdy all! I'm a UO systems designer. I worked on UO from 2000 to 2005 -- back then I was Vex. I joined UO again at Mythic late in 2009, and I'm happy to be back! Happy Holidays!
    Supreem_EAMythic Hellooooooo. Supreem here. Lead Engineer reporting for duty!
    MythicAndy << Community Guy. *wave*
    Mesanna Hi I am Mesanna, I am an Associate Dev Manager, and over the EM program
    Mesanna Calvin is stuck on the road but he is he with us via phone *waves*
    Sakkarah Howdy folks, I'm Sakkarah, Live Lead Designer who wisely avoided the snow storm my fellow colleagues are currently enjoying!
    Zephenia And a reminder - Please post your questions to [QT]Tazar and [QT]Kiminality only.
    Zephenia <Galen> With Draconi seemingly gone, is there a team member with similar responsibility for in-game events, fiction, story arcs, etc? If so, who is it? And if not, how are such matters being handled? (for example, through a committee of team members or something.)
    Sakkarah I have been responsible for in-game events and fiction since the launch of SA. I'm also currently developing the next story arc which, as announced previously will revolve around the reconstruction of Magincia.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> Are hot air balloons going to be craft and use-able at any time?
    WilkiEA I'm guessing that this comes from the book that was added in Stygian Abyss featuring plans for a hot air balloon. Basically, the SA collectable books were a bit of an easter egg nod to Ultima 6. While hot air balloons are an interesting idea, they're not currently something we're working on.
    Zephenia <Cody> Question: How do you plan to compete to upcoming MMOS like Mortal Online
    Mesanna We don't see ourselves in competition with other MMO's. We would rather put our efforts to making our player base happy. There have been millions of players that have played UO over the last 13 years, that says alot for the game
    Zephenia <Cirno> Will the global chat ever feature the ability to be in more than one channel at the same time? Currently, with only one channel at a time, the busiest one gets used for trade spam, chatter and everything else, leaving no option for filtering :(
    Supreem_EAMythic We have lots of ideas for ways to improve the global chat feature.
    Supreem_EAMythic The main goal of the first pass for this feature was to get all new players into a common Help channel where veteran players can help steer them on the right course.
    Supreem_EAMythic Now that the feature is out there, we are looking at the next steps. Being able to be in multiple channels is one possibility.
    Supreem_EAMythic We definitely want to give players an easy way to ignore players in the chat. We've already started working on that. We also want to improve on the spam filtering and increase GM's ability to moderate these channels.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> "The Stygian Abyss seems to be biased in difficulty towards the Stygian Dragon, I was under the impression that Slasher would be the most difficult to slay, and lore seems to lend in his favor. Will we see an increase in Slasher's capabilities?"
    Sakkarah The Stygian Dragon is definitely meant to be a formidable foe. The Slasher isn't quite where we want him to be, nor is Navrey. These two bosses will be getting some love in the future. Some of the adjustments have already been published for Navrey but she's still a work in progress.
    Zephenia Remember folks - post your questions to [QT]Tazar and [QT]Kiminality
    Zephenia <Gunga_Din> Hello, I have a question. I returned to UO because of the live events and interaction between the game masters and community. Are there plans to increase the amount of live content and ingame interaction between EM's and the community?
    Mesanna We're always listening to the community for feedback about how we can improve the Live Content and ingame interaction. Right now we're very happy with the way Live Content is progressing and look forward to the coming year's events. If you have any suggestions please do email either your EM or myself.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> The Stygian abyss, in compliance with lore, has multiple levels, with the addition of another land mass [ter mur] will we see expansion to the dungeon it's self?
    Sakkarah The Stygian Abyss of lore is a huge dungeon. Recreating all the levels isn't something we are currently planning on doing. We already have a lot of land that isn't being used as much as it could and should be. So before we add new landmass we are more likely to focus our efforts and revitalizing existing ones.
    Zephenia <Naughty-Santa> Players creating 14 day free accounts continue to spam gold selling web sites. Any plans on preventing this?
    Supreem_EAMythic This is a problem that plagues many MMOs with trial account options. It's difficult to find a balance between stopping the spammers and restricting legitimate new players too much.
    Supreem_EAMythic We have already made lots of changes to make it harder for them to spam. We will not give up the good fight. Hopefully, adding the ability to easily ignore players in global chat channels will be a big step in the right direction.
    Zephenia <Iann> Wilki! Can you give legacy weapons some love please? Pretty please? :(
    WilkiEA The imbalance between some of the newer weapon types and the legacy weapon types is something we want to address. We'd like for most weapons to balance their average damage and swing speed so that they have roughly the same base DPS. The difference should be in the special moves available, and the "feel" of the weapon, such as slow and heavy hitting vs. quicker and less damage per hit.
    Zephenia <Ashlarrr> assuming I can still ask a question, I want to ask: What is the status on the Enhanced Client? There's very little information from devs and despite the many bugs, it hasn't had a big update in a while.
    Supreem_EAMythic We are still committed to improving the Enhanced Client experience.
    Supreem_EAMythic Billy Teng, one of our illustrious client engineers, has spent the last few weeks leading up to Christmas fixing as many bugs as he could. Expect some nice love for the Enhanced Client in our next publish.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> Speed Hacking and Script-Fighting has been "hinted-at" recently, what exactly is going to be done?
    Supreem_EAMythic Yes we are dedicating resources to curb cheating in our game. Unfortunately, we can't tell you about them because we don't want them to know what to expect.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> The Christmas gifts this year are exceptional, but saddly some items that logically could be dyed with natural dyes [icecicles, food, etc.] will not dye, whilst items constructed of metal will change hues without a problem, be thar any plans to expand what can/cannot be dyed with Natural Dyes, or any reason behind what cannot be dyed?
    Sakkarah Some items aren't dyable simply because they were overlooked. Fixing that is a minor issue. Make sure to send us feedback on that and we can do the needed tweaks. Some other items however are deliberately made non-dyable through the staining system for various reasons. As far as foods are concerned, I'm not sure I would like to eat dyed caked! Maybe we need to look into food colorant!
    Zephenia <Cirno> A long time ago, one of the devs said that the fancy new patcher would replace the Classic Client's patcher. Is that still going to happen? Also, can we get a "check files" type button to allow broken installs to be fixed?
    Supreem_EAMythic We are still working on adapting the Mythic patcher to work with the data files used in the Classic Client. Unfortunately, we don't have an estimate for when this will be completed. Just know that we want it to happen as badly as you do. :)
    Supreem_EAMythic *whistles a tune*
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> In regards to story arcs, will the world of Britannia ever play host to the exploits of an Avatar again?
    WilkiEA The Avatar from the single player games isn't found in any Ultima universe except for what we call "Ultima Prime", which is the original timeline that unfolded in those games. So, you won't see the Avatar in UO, as there can only be one Avatar, who is only found in Ultima Prime. Outside of the lore, the Avatar was really a reflection of you, the player. In UO you are represented by each of your characters.
    Zephenia <Spiderman> Town bulletin boards can be a very useful (in character) tool for player interaction, especially in RP. However, they don't save posts past server up? Any chance someone can take a look at it and make it more flexible and powerful?
    Mythic_Phoenix We will look into it!
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> The Community seems to be widely displeased with the way Halloween's red crystal exchange went down, any plans to allow those whom may have flirted their possible fortunes away? Are Halloween Costumes here to stay? And for that matter, with Polymorph ever be updated with all the new fauna thay has found it's way infront of mages wishing to eat grass or whatever reason one would polymo
    Sakkarah There are no plans to reintroduce red crystals. In the future, there will likely be new ways for players to acquire more of the costumes for those who didn't have enough Halloween costumes to trade. As far as the Polymorph spell is concerned, while I cannot give an ETA, it certainly would make sense to look into updating the available choices a little.
    Zephenia <Xevei_GL> Any particular reason why we can't run multiple clients without needing to do the user switching? As long we have the accounts, what's wrong with running both at the same time? I like to banksit in one, and sort my things in the other :)
    Supreem_EAMythic I'm sure there was a reason why they implemented it this way years ago. I'm not exactly sure why they did it. We will look into this, but I can't promise that we can change it.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> Druidic Runes are traditionally used in Britannian signs on the roads and shops, any plans for a return
    to our roots, forcing the player base to understand them? As it stands we only have Lich spawn deco drops, and I can only spell MMORA so far.
    Sakkarah I'm definitely in favor of "encouraging" the use of things such as the runic alphabet, the Gargish, lizardmen and frankly even the wisps' languages. I do not believe we should force players into learning them however. But expanding the Gargish dictionary and making some of the runes available to the players through the Primeval Lich spawn were the first steps.
    Zephenia <Airmid> is the warhammer influencing the direction of PvP in UO
    Mesanna No these are two totally different games.
    Zephenia <Airmid> can we get some left over event things wrapped up, like bank deco and NPC escorts to towns that are no longer invaded
    Mesanna We have finished the bank decorating on all shards, as far as quest npcs we try to fix those as we find them.
    Zephenia <Galen> If supreem's whistling was a reflection of a lack of questions...Can you give us a clue about the mechanics of rebuilding Magincia? turn-in? Kill monsters? Gather components? Etc. And while we're at it, thank you for returning Dawn. She's a lot better now that she's being played by the EMs.
    Sakkarah The event design is still in progress but it will definitely involve player contributing in time and resources (both harvested and hunted). No fairy will wave a wand for the town to suddenly be back up how it originally was. The amount of commitment of each shard will definitely impact the end result.
    Zephenia <Airmid> currently to do the compassion escorts NPCs are not requesting to go to cities like Britain or Vesper or other towns that were invaded
    WilkiEA This was an oversight, and will be corrected in a future publish.
    Zephenia <Nhbdy> What does the team want for Christmas?
    Mesanna I want all this dang snow out of my driveway!
    WilkiEA A pony!
    Supreem_EAMythic Hmmmm... I want a performance upgrade for my Pontiac Solstice... but I know I'm never gunna get it!
    Sakkarah I want a moongate linking my house in VA to my parents' house in Montreal (to steal some of mom's awesome cooking!)
    Mythic_Phoenix A cup of hot apple cider.
    Supreem_EAMythic Oh and I want more snow... so it can fill up Mesanna's driveway again!
    Sakkarah I second Supreem's request!
    MythicAndy I just want to find the new rocket launcher in TF2 ;)
    Mesanna Can you feel the hate!!
    MythicAndy and more snow for Mesanna's driveway!
    Sakkarah You'll feel the hate when you drink your eggnog and realize I slipped a rotten egg in it :/
    Zephenia Thank you all for coming! Logs will be posted sometime in the next little while - and you ALL have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday! And thank the Devs and all for showing up Christmas week for a chat!
    Mesanna and Calvin wants everyone home for Christmas.
    Supreem_EAMythic Thanks guys!
    Supreem_EAMythic *waves happily*
    Zephenia *waves*
    WilkiEA *wave*

    She meant the bank decoration contest deco, and the LS bank most certainly has not had that finished (or even started).

    Agreed Crysta. I was shocked to see that answer. i know the Chesapeake bank is not done either. Nor is Baja bank.

    I guess I didnt have good questions. I don't think I will attend another one.

    I still want to know about my damn Sherry the mouse statue I wasted clean up points on that doesn't even have updated news!

    It was a silly G-rated fun-romp.. but didn't answer half of the real questions about this game.

    I wonder if it was moderator-censored or dev-ignored.

    I stand corrected, LS is not done, I thought it had been. Chessy and Baja are finished from the screenshots I got though. If someone has different screenshots then please send them my way.


    Happy Holidays Everyone!

    Don't worry about it.. i'm sure everyone just put it off due to how complicated the design was.. lol... blame StupidMiner for that. :p

    Anyway, best to wait till the holiday stuff comes down to put up the final deco now..

    Tazar Guest

    Sorry - but there is no way I can do that... I was only one of the question takers - and as such - many questions never passed through my hands for me to see. There was an area that I could have watched and tracked them from - but I was busy relaying questions and responding where needed.

    I do know that I never saw any questions from you. If you don't ask what is important to you - there is no chance it will be answered.

    Even above on the bank question - If they thought it was complete, they now know otherwise. Maybe they thought one of our now-x-team-members completed it - but did not?

    We do number the questions as we go, so I know that we had 22 answered out of 48 asked.

    Also, we seemed to get a lot of questions right at the end so probably 10 were not answered because of time constraints.

    For being my first time as a Question Taker and getting a little peek behind the scenes, It seemed to me that they did their best. We all knew before we went there that some things they would not be able to answer. Personally, I was happy to see attendance of 80 to 90 on a holiday travel week and very appreciative of a developer team that choose to take their personal holiday time to spend some of it with us.

    Sweeney Guest

    Are you saying it was a toss-up as to who's questions gets consideration?

    You say you relayed questions.. yet you also say you could not see every question during the "other part's" portion of the Q&A.

    Next time, let us know who to properly send questions to, instead of explicitly informing us to send questions to YOU, which I had done until right before the end.

    Nice try with a cop-out.. either say you relayed the questions, or say you ignored them. Many of us have the log.

    You are abrasive. Judging from your recent postings, perhaps your questions were rudely worded. Perhaps your questions aimed to lash out rather than contribute to an informed discussion. You're clearly upset. I suspect that might have contributed to your questions being placed on the back burner.

    In the future, a more diplomatic approach might serve you better.
     
  13. Tazar

    Tazar Guest

    I relayed every question sent to me - except 4. Two of them were after the close-time, one was not a question - merely a pot-shot at the team, and one was obviously a question not meant for our Developer team - but was about something on an illegal-shard.

    Yes, I could have read every question posed, but I was not on that page, instead, I had questions popping up that my job was to relay. I was busy doing my job rather than reading.

    If you really have an issue with it - then just like the "Ask A Dev" Forum, start a thread here in U-hall for everyone to post their questions that they asked that were not answered.

    And you stated that you asked all your questions of me? I saw your name in the chat list - but never once got a question from you. Try again and next time - actually ask them and they may get answered.

    Anyone could see through your thin facade of helpfulness to your actual intent: to lash out against a development team that you feel *owes* you something. Just stating the obvious.
     
  17. Sweeney

    Sweeney Guest

    Umm what? I asked questions that were ignored, how is that lashing out? If you didn't bother to find out what questions I asked, or to find out what you think they owe me, you're just a brown noser.. you honestly don't know anything.

    Here's a tip: I never said they owed me anything.

    Ive been checking that bank almost daily for that Yew tree gate lol. I cant wait to see it!!! I do however feel really bad for Mesanna because that tree is TONS of pieces. If you all catch Mesanna doing it id make sure to alert stupid miner to it in case she has questions or needs to change something. The one who designed it is helpful during build time.

  24. Tazar

    Tazar Guest

    OK.... for all the rubberneckers watching this train-wreck...

    It seems that the method Sweeney was using to Submit the questions was one that would get it out there, but not in the normal method - so we never saw them. I can't really say it is his fault - and I am going to look into the instructions to make sure that they are clear in the future. If the questions do not come in by PM, they will sadly be lost amongst the 10 or more channels we are trying to manage during the chat.

    So... To sum it up. Sweeney asked questions that were never heard due to a technical issue. They were not intentionally ignored. At the next HoC, I will go out of my way to make certain that we get that communications right.

    So... now that that issue is cleared up - I do hope everyone enjoyed the chat - and if anyone else has questions, concerns, issues, or needs IRC instructions classes, please send me a PM. The first 3 I will help with - the last one I will attend with... :p

    Can we get back on topic now?

    Sweeney Guest

    So who has a foot in their mouth by sucking up before the bell?

    :D

    I told you gentlemen sort things out without requiring brown-nosing.

    And next time I hope the instructions are clear!

    You were right. Sadly, this truth will not make you a less angry person.
     
  27. Sweeney

    Sweeney Guest

    Tazar was doing his best.. we were both new to IRC. Neither of us knows the intricacies of the standard. Some clients allows certain commands and others disallow them without warning.

    Lesson: IRC is evil!!! Explicit instructions are needed!!!

    And despite what anyone thinks of me.. I speak my mind and I speak the truth. I'm not afraid to argue when I know I'm right. It's more than I can say for a lot of you.

    Funny; the directions seemed clear to me and have been nearly identical for years.

    So identical in fact that the instructions appear to have not been updated in a very, very long time.....

    It is funny because Mortal Online claims to be competing with UO directly. That is what they said in their slide-show presentation.

    Cute.

    That's.....awfully dumb of them.

    I'd never heard of this until tonight.

    Every year or two there's a game that will kill UO. They never do. The biggest threat to UO is EA's bouts of irrationality.

    The chat is now posted to the chat log archive (Found under 'current events' at the top of the left hand menu index).

    And having checked into this question problem I find that Sweeney was in fact using a correct method to contact the question takers, however the instruction was:
    It is imperative in irc that you use the exact nick of the person you wish to contact. At the time of the HoC the nick Tazar was using was [QT]Tazar - as quoted above.

    Yes, but you're likable.
     
  40. No, that's not Pacific's bank, but according to the person who designed Pac's bank, it's not done either. There's still a LOT of roof deco missing.

    Well I came late to the show due to connection problems and my own comprehension of EST, hehe. I forwarded a few questions I had gotten from the community and want to thank Tazar for tagging them towards the end.

    I think it was a pretty good turn out, especially for a holiday week. Thank you Tazar for hosting another HoC and a big thanks to the dev team for taking the time out for us instead of last minute Christmas shopping *grins*

    I don't know why this was such a shocking suggestion either, it's been requested time and again for years.

    And I believe, if they dig back and look at their records, they will find that Legends bank deco is being done, but NOT from the entry that was listed as winning? Altho DevilsOwn would have to confirm that.

    For all of you who didn't get your questions answered, it was nothing personal. No matter how the questions to be answered are selected, there will be some that are unanswered, for one thing they come in quicker than they can be answered.
    If a question you asked wasn't answered, you could drop it in the Ask the Devs forum, to give them another chance to answer it.

    Anyway, Thanks go out to:
    The Devs - For answering the questions, and UO in general.
    You folks - For asking questions.
    Tazar, Zeph and the others behind the scenes.

    (I'm in a good mood, but fear not - it won't last)

    Draconi was in charge of the Bank renovations but the program was probably discontinued when he left.

    It was stated that they have been completed. Pacific's bank is kind of a joke but I don't blame Draconi for doing a half ass job when he was getting laid off.
