    PINATAS!!! From Wikipedia:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%C3%B1ata

    It'd be so cool and its something that hasn't been done before! The Devs could even make them like little UO monters. I haven't decided what should be inside them.

    Be cool to see crafted pinatas as well that players could fill... perhaps target a tree to 'hoist' it up and then crafted whacking sticks. People have a % chance to break the pinata and then all the goodies that were put into it would fall all over the area.

    Probably be hard as hell to code, but sure be fun for player events.

    The best Christmas event I have ever experienced was on The Realm Online.

    Fairies in the game were programmed to drop little boxes every so often, and in the boxes you could find different items ranging from unique clothing items to rarer armor pieces.

    It was like a scavanger hunt, although granted at times people would just follow the fairies around.

    In UO I don't see that being a problem since the game is so large, but if the devs could have monsters drop presents around the world with random gifts it would be interesting I think.

    They already have the present boxes. Plus, if you made a variety of both dungeon and above ground monsters drop items the same random loot table, it would be available to all levels of people.

    Nothing was more pleasent than running along and finding a box behind a bush in The Realm. Even if the item wasn't something rare, just the reward of finding something like that at random was fun to me. :p

    We could fill the pinatas with candy we gathered while trick or treating.

    Oooo Good idea!! i was also thinking you could fill them with the embuing stuff, gold coins, silver coins, whatever you like. LMAO, could you imagine a bunch of Reds trying to do a pinata filled with faction silver? Would they be hitting the pinata or each other? :lol::lol::lol:
     
  19. Not to be a ****.. but sheesh we just had holloween gifts and already posting for christmas stuff... sounds like a gimmie, gimmie ,gimmie, more.I think this holloween stuff has been great and i have enjoyed it.Why don't we just chill and relax instead of worrying bout what new gifts we can get from the dev team.

    I don't think it's a bad time to be talking about holiday wishes. It isn't like the devs can just whip out content the day before the event...and expect it to be good. If there is new art they have to get their requests for resurces submitted early... stuff like that. I wouldn't be shocked if building holiday content was already well underway. Somebody get Sak an elf hat!... and post pics please.

    I want a Greater Mongbat Pinata. ^_^

    And as for evil santa...

    He could be like an orc brute. But instead of throwing orcs at you, he throws elves!

    I'd like to see the Devs implement some additional content for beggars. Perhaps they could stand in front of your favorite vendor malls and ring bells, collecting gold for the needy. :D

    I think it is you who needs to chill here. Nothing wrong with coming up with ideas, I like doing it for fun. No one here is demanding. No one here is saying "gimme, gimme, gimme," it's just ideas, fun, creative, imaginative ideas plain and simple.

    Unless you don't like being creative with ideas even if you know it most likely wont be made :p

    Thanksgiving is a little tough because it was celebrated already in October in Canada. :) Of course, I suppose they could have a two month long event to celebrate it. :D

    I like your idea.

    For me I would like an ice rink that I could play hockey and hit a piece of coal around. Or, even cover the ground in ice and make everyone slip and fall down. We could have everyone just strolling along and splat! Could make pvp fun if slipping occurs.

    This sounds boring. I would settle for a smaller christmas tree one that does not poke threw the floors. A table top model that lights up maybe. But random gifts on monsters or gifts placed around like the pumpkins are now sounds like fun. But a pinata filled with candy that we are getting now for halloween ummmmmm ....no

    I was thinking maybe we could use this quest thing again... only this time.. you need to save Santa and his elves....

    And for doing that costumes are of good creatures... Like unicorns, fairies, fairy dragons, Kirins and the like only with a twist.... dependent on your Karma.... this way if your "naughty" it turns you into a gremlin, Dire wolf, or Balron or something... impish... showing everyone you are "naughty"...

    Instead of capturing "sparkles" you would need to gather the "Xmas spirit"... to free Santa.... and instead of doing it at the Hag's request... perhaps we do it at Tomas's request.... who better to ask us to save santa than our own toymaker? You could then incorperate the help of the lady in Vesper who makes Portraits and it would be super, super cool if she created a portrait of your character that you could keep.
