    hi i don't know how feasable this sounds but i would like the ability to swim or dive or use some sort of submarine in UO. i think it would be pretty darn cool to be able to explore the oceon depths with some sort of oxygen tank and mask and a diving suit or with a submarine maybe all of them. i know it probally won't happen at least any time soon. even the ability to explore under water caves & dungeons with differnt sea monsters and sea creatures would be cool. if it ever happens perhaps we can have a spear gun and have to face danger from sea monsters and sharks and God knows what else. there can be sunken ships with treasure too. well its just something on my uo wish list for some day in the future i do not expect it but i think it would be great. ill make a poll out of this hopefully it will get some possative reactions so feel free to comment and vote thanks.

    I have "a magic sandals of Jesus"

    i can walk/run on water pretty much =)

    and i dont think an oxygen tank and scubba gear is out of place whatsoever.. . how about an alchemy potion? or new mage spell?

    I'd prefer the developers come up with a better form of PvP for the high seas. There is a lot of area that could be a lot of fun to play as a pirate, but the current ship system doesn't work very well for it...la

    anyway it can happen is fine with me if it be by some new spell or new type of under water gear that is fine i just want it to happen one day however it happens.
     
  5. A submarine? I know I'm not very knowledgeable about UO lore, but I'm pretty sure Captain Nemo isn't part of it...

    Yeah, its kinda hard to RP a pirate when you can't really do anything...
     
  7. I think submarines in a world where they still use swords and bows and arrows is a bit far fetched hehehehe, but yea sumfin on the water wud be fun, just not under the water :p
     
  8. I think swimming would be ok but only in shallow water areas (light blue). Only boats should be able to go into deeper water areas (dark blue).

    But I think your on to something, underwater city? Do I see an Ultima Online: Atlantis expansion pack coming with a mermaid race that can only go in the water unless they have fins of the cu elf minor artifact? I dunno...

    imo anyway.

  9. If you swim and then dive and surface really fast you can create a dupe.

    So I say no.

    I voted no, only because the whole idea seems out of place for the world of UO. I would however be behind any sort of upgrade that would make boating more useful. How about piracy. I'd love to have a pirate char who could take over or break into and loot other players boats. Or at the very least, toss in a new island or two with cities/dungeons on them that can only be accessed by boat, no recalling in or out, or moongates.

    Im still getting over Todd McFarlane's wonderful creations...

    *edit*

    Seriously, would "sandals of the savior" not be a bad idea for a new vet reward?

    Will the subs have torpedoes?

    I could be wrong, but diving and submarines have no place in Ultima lore. I'm all for bug fixes and advancing the storyline towards the next expansion.
     
  15. I would like to be able to recall without crashing, from my boat on the water :p

    And recall without crashing from Melissa.
    And most anywhere else that has more than 3 people.

    Then perhaps, I would like to swim.

    If they dumped the 2D client and went with just KR they could probably put a heap more 'water activities' in the game quite easily. Would be kinda fun hehe.

    well not everything in uo started out intially in UO lore i am sure. things change and anything in UO eventually becomes a part of UO lore so i was hoping eventually there could be under water cities, dungeons, towns, caves, and mazes among other things which perhaps can only be reached from going under water maybe there can even be under ground land too sort of a middle earth under the water.
