    Any time you are developing new content that will include objects players must/will collect, and said objects are expected to be collected/produced/etc in quantities greater than 5, and there is no difference between individual objects

    MAKE THE DARN OBJECTS STACK FROM DAY ONE!!!!!!!!

    Please print this post and hang it in your cubicles for future reference. And while you're at it print/copy some for your neighbors. And make a note of how well your printer/copier stacks the copies for you!!

    In the early days of UO we never needed this conversation, but this topic has been rehashed over and over for at least the last 8 years.
     
  4. Ancient Pottery Fragments - WHY don't these stack? ANY reason? Who cares if they are a quest item, arrows stack and they are a quest item.

    LOLed IRL.

    Great line.

    Maybe their copiers should only stack Agendas, Meeting Notes, and copies of Map Quest items.

    Everything else gets thrown off the copiers random directions at a fairly high random velocity.

    It would make printing Financials kind of a drag.

    God that was a funny visual, Beastmaster...still laughing...thanks.

    WhityJinn you seem to be missing a couple of Key Definitions.

    First let us go to the horses mouth instead of the other end for this definition...from Dictionary.Com:

    Now...let us evaluate the meaning, according to that same site for "Irritation":



    Now...allow me to clarify for you:

    Having some items stack and others, particularly items which can be procured in large quantities, not stack, to me, and I am betting quite a large number of people, particularly those with a penchant for actual definitions, is "Irritating"...not "Challenging".

    By contrast...your posts are "Irritating"...not "Challenging".

    They seem "Challenged" indeed...but not "Challenging"...they are just "Irritating" to me.

    I hope that spells it out for you, for future edification.

    :)

    Or do what i have done, add WhityJin to ignore list, there is no useful input from any of his/her posts, just immature nonsense that i for one have no time for

    sooner or later he/she will grow up,or get more homework to take up more time, until then

    bliss..............

    Didn't your blackholed char have a "blaze cu-sidhe"?
    Hee hee

    As for stacking, yes please. All my cooking non stackables and gardening non stackables were thrown in the bin and the pottery fragments are set to follow.

    No need to shout. :) Already taking care of it. Actually they are similar fish. Just that they are facing different directions. It is getting taken care of today. And actually we use ditto machines because we like the smell. :)

    Thank you BUT!, it is more than a few fish we're talking about here. We have to keep reminding you guys of this every time you make something new.

  13. And what about sacks of sugar? Some will stack while others will not. All the sacks of sugar have the same graphic but refuse to drop in one stack :(

    The unstackable that got my goat recently was the compassion sage. Such a simple graphic in recent content that yet again was not stackable.

    (ps.. Grand Poobah, can you look up why my spell checker will not accept the words stackable and unstackable?)

    Oh trust me I know about the Compassion Sage I was torked about that myself.


    I keep saying stacking = Good... stacking makes UO players very happy... so think STACKING.

    Everything should stack stack stack....

    Got enough junk, vanilla needs to stack, all those things need to stack.. sugar... all of it.

    pottery fragments need to stack.

    Pools of acid.... should stack

    Goo should stack.

    Candles should stack..... be they short or tall... should stack.

    Torches should stack before lighting and after lighting... when unlit again... not while lit.

    Bottles of wine, ale, etc should stack until they are used... once open they should not stack anymore much like plant dye.

    Like tokens should stack.

    Heritage tokens should stack.

    >>Actually they are similar fish
    fish???
    Is there posts missing/deleted talking about Fish?
    Me thinks Cal's post was meant to go as an answer in the Beta testing area, not here.
    And All those 'similar but different' things,etc, like ophid rations, I'm to the point of just trashing them - no use & not considered a collectible, unless your collecting stipidity.

    & what happened to WhityJinn's orig post? (not that I wanted to read it), deleted 'cause of language?

    There's this crate. It's where all the 'bad' posts end up. When it's full, we nail it closed and send it off to the nearest black hole. One day, we'll get past Petra and work out how to make sure the authors of the posts join them :D

    Amen to making everyting 'possible' stack.

    I realize you cannot stack Sleighs and Reindeer crafted by... But how about Holiday Tree Deeds? I have 70 of those that would be nicer in one stack.

    How about Heritage tokens? How about all tokens ? Soul frags, transfer, char name change etc.

    How about snow?

    How about candy canes?

    Etc.

    One other request - can you please make blackrock have some use? We were told it was such a powerful item and at one time could trade in for runic hammers and tokuno arties. Now it just piles up.

    Maybe make it so you can take 25 or 50 pieces and craft a replica of the blackrock pillars from the event or something.

    This game has too much junk....

    Thank goodness for return to brit so I can shove lots of this in the bank and beetles of my 'dead' accounts in case there is a future use. :)

    I think I recall reading months back that one of the Developers was working on making all items that were fit for that, to be made stackables.

    I remember wrongly ?
