    Is there any way to set a macro to open the most recent/nearby monster corpse using either the classic client or US Assist?

    If not, can we PLEASE get this option added to the game? It would make a great option under the macro options; You could set the hotkey of your choice and then hit it every time you kill something instead of having to try to double click the darn corpse on the ground.

    Better yet; could we simply get a setting we can turn on/off where every time you kill something and have looting rights, the corpse automatically opens? Man this would be a HUGE time saver and make hunting/spawning a lot more enjoyable. Again, this option would allow anybody who does not want the corpses to open to play like we have been for years. But for the rest of us this would be sooo nice.

    I don't think after all these years that would get added in...one of those "if only" features, I guess.

    An "auto loot" feature would be nice I agree but highly unlikely to ever happen

    If memory serves me right, this used to be a feature in UOA back when it was an illegal program. But he had to take it and a number of other cool features out to get it approved for UO Pro.

    I can understand the "auto-loot" feature being removed, but I cannot see any legitimate reason as to why we cannot have corpses auto-open upon death.

    I think it's on the find item tab in uoassist (*quiet chuckle* - hehe)

    Loot is generated per player now, so there is no reason why we can't have auto loot now.

    I just hate it that I often can't loot half the corpses because there are 5 others on top of them.

    A menu which displays a list of all corpses on the tile you're standing on along with a way to open them would also be a tremendous help.

    Could you point out which of these tabs is the "find Item" tab? Because unless you have a different version of UOA I don't see. I am getting old thought so It could just be that I'm blind.

    Agreed Shakkara,

    This is similar to Duel-Clienting which may have had a good reason for being illegal in the past, but these days there should be no reason we cannot have this feature. The Dev's were kind enough to allow us to Duel Client, and I think this would also be a great feature to add to the game since there is no reason we should not be able to have corpses auto-open.

    Just a simple setting that would allow a corpse to pen upon death is all it would take. I am no programmer but it seems this would be easy enough to implement. It would make the game a lot more enjoyable and I cannot think of any reason we should not have that option.

    hehe he's trolling.

    I couldn't live without auto show corpse names, though.

    In the EC with Pinco's UI there is an option to ignore the corpses you have already opened, so pressing ctrl-shift only shows corpses you haven't opened.

    Thanks Gunth,

    Unfortunately I do not use the EC as I just cannot stand the way it looks. I would actually probably give it another shot if they had an option to use ALL of the graphics from the 2d client, including those of people and monsters. Anyway, I do not want this to turn in to a EC vs 2d thread, so I will return to the topic at hand.

    I think that an option to have corpses auto-open upon death would benefit those who play both clients, and it should not be that difficult to implement in either one.

    This isn't the "auto corpse open" button you seek, however if you want to loot really fast, fast enough to be called a cheater and all other sorts of fun things you can simply use: auto show corpse name, double clicking on the name and a last object macro you can get the corpses pretty fast.

    1. Make sure your "Auto show corpse names" in UOAssist is checked.

    2. Double click on the corpse name after you kill something

    2b. If there are too many sprites (sprites being dead creatures) on one location use a last object macro to cycle the sprites.

    3. Nom nom on the loot

    With this I can beat loot scripts 50% of the time.

    For a lengthy version which goes into offsets and some walk-throughs to open corpses that were out of range when the corpse name appeared check a tutorial I did years back at http://oev.hilands.com/tips-corpselooting.html

    You can also have it auto show corpse names in Pinco's UI. Then when you click the name to open corpse, name goes away. There is also a setting to clear the memory of closed corpses just in case you need the tags again.
