    This publish implements several changes to prevent house placement exploits.

    <font color="brown">Spring Cleaning 2008</font>
    Ah, how time flies. Spring has come once again to Britannia, but the sweet smell of blossoming flowers outside our homes can’t belie the memories of battles fought long so very long ago. Or is that the chest overflowing with Ophidian weapons in the corner? Or maybe it’s the bag of cursed artifacts hidden upstairs?

    Time to cleanup, Britannia!<ul>[*]Publish 52 institutes the first round of Spring Cleaning collections and rewards[*]Four NPCs around the world collect items in exchange for tickets[*]The tickets can be redeemed for rewards in a new community collection in Britain[/list]The following list of turn-ins and rewards are subject to change during testing - especially redemption values of points.

    [/ QUOTE ]Right, account per shard. I've updated the notes above. Thanks!

    Account can be in Shadowlords on Pacific, and Minax on Atlantic, but can't be in both factions on one shard. Restrictions by account are only on the same server.

  11. Oh my.

    A few quick thoughts. (Upon looking this over I see that I have a muted tone which will be taken for lack of enthusiasm. Let me assure you in an understated, muted way that I am indeed enthusiastic.)

    1. UO is taking a (further) turn toward the grim. (No, not a complaint, just an observation.)

    2. The "Knight's Armor" makes a HELL of a lot more sense now. Thanks for the clarification, D. [​IMG]

    3. The turn-in point values still seem incredibly low for the most part. (A few nice surprises like the awesomely high value for Invalis's Burchette.) You should consider turning many of these up, I would argue.

    4. "major shift in politics." Uh oh.

    5. I'm not a pack rat, so I'm.....I won't say I'm left out of this. I will say that I am disadvantaged. I can't really complain though, honestly! I made a conscious decision to sell rather than horde......What am I gonna do, whine now when I got rich at the time? Doesn't seem right to whine, now does it.

    6. Intriguing. (That's a good thing.)

    7. Does UO's turn toward the grim reflect the mood of Ultima 5? Or does it reflect the influence of Warhammer/Mythic? (Anyone remember the old tabletop Warhammer RPG? Very, very grim. The good guys were fated to lose, the rising tide of evil could not be stopped.) Neither of these are bad things, but thinking about these questions might give us insights on what's going on in Virginia.

    8. Is there enough for the good guys in there? Is more good guy stuff coming later?

    9. Any chance of Factioners being able to be healed/rezzed outside of Felucca?

    Thank you, as always, for the update D.

    Should be good to play through.

    *Galen grimly and resolutely sharpens his weapons.....in the distance, a storm is brewing*

    The Ophidian Journals were pretty rare if i remember right. I dont think i'll be giving up any of mine now.

    Guest Guest

    Just a note
    Idoc changes = Love


    Now for the rest of the news.

    Ophidian Journals were harder to get than the Ophidian Orders.
    Staff of Pyros was easier to get than Mystic weapons...
     
  14. Thanks, Draconi! Hoping to be able to test these out on TC soon. [​IMG]

    Upon further thought the points are pretty skewed.
    That's really going to make things hard. I've got two berzerker bardiches I may trade.. that will get me 50K points. I can almost get a pair of boots... ??

    You got the fields and water barrels, but moongates still block house placement. Also after placing and demolishing a house it said I had to wait 8 hours before I could place another. That would make positioning houses right where you want them a potential multi-day task.

    When has there ever been a 7 week delay between demolishing and rebuilding a house. I have built and demolished houses several times in the same day.

    Cursed Arties are worth more points then they should be, they were farmed in mass. But I guess that was the point, so in that case nevermind.,

    Everything about the publish is good...
    except the turn-in/claim points.
    I did some quick math and my 4 full chests of Ophidian crapola may get 3-4 low end items but no chance at even armor piece.
    Out-of-whack!!!

    Well lets take a look:

    Ophidian Rations(ON EVERY OPPIE except serpents and snakes) 10pts
    Planesword (ON EVERY FALLEN WARRIOR50/50) 20pts
    Planeshield (ON EVERY FALLEN WARRIOR50/50) 20pts
    Copper Shilling (VERY COMMON) 50pts
    Ophidian Journals(VERY RARE *I have 17*) 100pts
    Ophidian Orders (SEMI-COMMON) 200pts
    Slippery Snake Skins (SEMI-COMMON at least 3 from each queen)250pts
    Silver Crown (SEMI-RARE) 400pts
    Power Weapon (COMMON found ALOT)500pts
    Vanquishing Weapon (SEMI-RARE hard to find)650pts
    Magincia Rubble (VERY COMMON) 800pts
    Mystic Weapon (RARE hard to find) 1,000pts
    Staff of Pyros (COMMON I just threw 20 away lol)1,500pts
    Vorpal Blade (SEMI-COMMON after the change) 1,500pts
    Ophidian Weapon (Power) (SEMI-RARE) 2,000pts
    Ophidian Weapon (Vanquishing) (RARE) 2,500pts
    Ophidian Weapon (Mystic) (VERY RARE) 3,500pts
    Cursed Artifacts (SO COMMON IT'S NOT FUNNY) 5,000pts
    Berserker's Scythe (COMMON) 7,500pts
    Gold Sovereign (SEMI-RARE) 10,000pts
    Ophidian Berserker's Bardiche (RARE) 25,000pts
    Inavlis's Burchete (OMG RARE) 2,000,000pts

    The above are from my experiances only and may not reflect on others but I do think the points are a bit skewed.
     
  25. My observations on the turn in points...

    1. Journals should be worth a lot more than orders, since journals were much rarer.

    2. Ophidian Berserker's Bardiches are a lot rarer, and 25,000 points doesn't seem like its even worth it to hand them in. I'd personally say double the points for them (50,000) at least.

    2. Not sure about the points, on one hand if they are geared to be quite rare, the points amounts are fine. However if the casual player wants to obtain some things, maybe an overall boost of hand in points would be in order.

    Just my thoughts, all the other stuff is amazing, just make sure nothing has the potential to be exploited (mouse holes especially) [​IMG]

    Question:

    Can accounts with multiple houses make use of house resizing or does it condemn other houses?

    Like I said when this was first announced a few days ago......not worth our time to lug it all to the turn in place.
    1500 points for the vorpal and staff? Are you kidding me?
    500 for Rubble! now you're just insulting us!
    Oh an I know it was easy to get the planeswords/shields but 20 points? 20 God **** points!!!!

    Knight's Armor
    White
    Each piece has 7% Resists, +1HP
    Publish 53: Becomes a set of 6 pieces with additional bonuses

    That last part will be the deal breaker for many people if this armor is worth it.

    General question on resizing:

    I believe the normal placement rules require 3 spaces in front and behind the house and 1 space to each side.

    Are these spaces included in the "no place" zone for other players when in resize mode? In other words I want to make sure that no one can run up and place within this buffer zone while I am in resize mode and thus prevent me from replacing my house exactly like it was. Has anyone checked this on test? This will take two people or two accounts to check so I cannot do it. Plus I am still at work.

    Also, what happens if I am in resize mode trying to maximize my plot and I lose connection? Or worse what if my internet connection tanks for longer than the resize time limit? Is my existing house automatically replaced?

    Oh ya...I sold my Ophidian Berzerker's Bardiche for 5 million gold, so with the current points the armor should be worth 40 million a piece. 240 for the set?Right? I know this isn't accurate, just food for thought.

    Here's a pic of what I got when I tested house re-sizing.

    I placed a house and customized it.
    I said "I wish to resize my house" and poof it was gone. I got a message that 100K was placed in my bank box.
    I tried a house that wouldn't fit and got the customary message.
    Then I placed this one.
    I got NO conformation gump asking me the usual "is this what you want"... the house just placed.
    Note the message I received about having to wait 7 hours though.
    Pic for reference:

    Are you also getting trapped under the house when you place? I'm getting that.

    What purpose does a 7 hour timer have? if they have fixed scripting these house placement rules are not needed.

    Sooo...uhh...do the people who came up with the point spread play UO?

    While that might seem like some heavily dripped sarcasm I honest to dog am really wondering. I can only assume that for some reason this is merely a mistake and the points given for these were done in haste.....by interns....at WoW. [​IMG]

    It's not the points that clued me in that they don't play......it's the rewards.
    If they actually played the game, the "uo player" side of them would have punched the "dev" side of them in the mouth 2 seconds after reading the "Reward" list.

    Turn in values... why don't you slap the other side of my face while you are at it? I'm not asking for handouts, just the possibility of earning some items without having to play the game from the moment I wake up in the morning until I go to bed at night. The items aren't that powerful to begin with, so why do they require so many points to obtain?

    No I'm not. It appears that I am under the stairs in that pic but I just walk out from there.

    No there was not. The larger house just placed and I got a message about increased storage.... that apparently I missed in the screenshot :/ it was mixed in with the 7 hour message that = false since I didn't have to actually wait.

    I dunno. Too many times have I seen posts by team members that are wrong or just plain off when it comes to the game itself. Players know far more than developers about the actual workings of the game and I don't fault them for that but it gets exasperating at times when the gap is so large between experience and observation.

    Which was harder to get; an ophidian order/journal or a cursed arti when they were dropping 5 at a damn time?

    Harder to get; cursed artis or vorpal blades/staff of pyros?

    *sighs*

    I really hope the bolded "subject to change" is genuine. And before the item crybabies start up with their silver plate garbage I'm not looking for an uber item handout. Something along the lines of reasonable will be fine.

    True but we have to remember that cursed arties really do have a use. Some folks find them useless because they are cursed. But for pvm they are quite powerful. Many folks will think twice about turning in their cursed arties... at least the items like ornaments and magi hats.

    I would agree with you had they not changed DOOM recently and made those artifacts attainable. No, the cursed artis are off scale to the rest of the turnins.

    Plus, I see more people with staff of pyros than cursed artis. Those were one of the few items given out in the last few years that were worth actually obtaining.

    ...

    Certain cursed arties will be insta-turn ins (Holy Knight's Breastplate anyone?) while others will probably remain in players' inventories (Ornaments).

    Coins will turn in fine, though I'll personally keep a set or three.

    Journals and Orders need to be swapped pointwise

    Planesword/shield just turned into the biggest waste of space piles of junk there are. Almost feel like betting on them getting attributes down the road than turning them in (probably keep one of each though).

    Event weapons will depend on the weapon and the player. If it has useful mods, expect them to be kept for event purposes, if not or is the wrong weapon type, then it will be turned in.

    Even at 2 million points, someone would have to be pretty dumb to turn in an Inavlis' Burchette.
     
  50. wow ... yeah ... mayhaps a little bit of the "subject to change during testing - especially redemption values of points."

    OR

    maybe a "Set" of the Knights armor (Legs, breast, neck, helmet, arms, and gloves ... 6 pieces) for a Total of 200,000 points ...
    (instead of 6 x 200k = 1.2 million pts)

    still ...

    *shrugs* maybe ... I've in the neighborhood of:<pre>
    18 coppers .. 900 pts
    4 silver ....... 1600 pts
    3 gold ....... 30,000 pts
    230 sw/sh ... 460 pts
    Berserkers .. 7,500 pts
    -----------------------------------------
    [​IMG]..........40,460 pts</pre>

    [​IMG] still doesn't put me in range of any "high ends", like the suit ...

    I mean ... 4 boat loads of the shields and swords ...

    *shrugs*

    We'll see ... hey! maybe mix the "new" armour in with the anti-virtue dungeon set ...
    some way ... over the long term ... to get one ...
