    Unraveling.

    May we have the formula that determines which ingredients and how many are received for unraveling an item?

    Will you ever clean up the code used for ship movement? The sea has a lot of potential for future features and expansion.

    It seems a little redundant to post them here. Isn't the idea to put them in one place where the devils will see them and answer?

    It's been stated before that this can not be done until they get rid of the tile-based movement of the 2D client. Until the players are ready for that, things are a little limited.

    they wont allow discussion of the questions in that section so they advised those with questions to post here as well so there could be discussion on them

    I think the new forum will be in more of a Q&A format - with one question and the specific developer comment showing. This will be great for players to have a direct information resource without all the u-hall debate/trolling/flaming/etc.

    But players are still going to want to discuss the issue - that's what U-hall is for.

    Wait, you're saying UHall is for arguing beside the point and in absence of definitive information? I'm shocked! :eek:

    :D

    In that case: I have asked about some of the higher-priority changes/fixes slated for the Enhanced Client and a rough idea of in what sort of timescale they hope to accomplish them. Nothing etched in stone, just generalities.

    Has your item ID skill ever shown you that?

    I know there were more than 2 questions posed yesterday. Come on folks post the rest of them.

    Gem carts? why are Amethysts, Citrines, Diamonds, Star Sapphires use a different graphic from those gotten from creatures, treasure chests. And why does the client not recognize these gems when I try to imbue items with them?

    When will the Mysticism spell Bombard actually knock something over and stun it? I've never had it happen. Am I just unlucky?

    Any chance of increasing the size of the inside of bookshelf gump? It's much smaller than other containers. Also, increasing the size of the usable space inside? Right now only a handful of books can be seen at a time.
     
  15. The question I posted was...

    Will there be an end to un-owned houses? And could we make a program out of it to give back the land to paying players. Possibly even make it so GM's would have the power to get rid of them.

    What un-owned house are you talking about? The ones right outside of towns that are assumed npcs live in? :confused:

    My post:
    Two questions here but I think they are both easily answerable.
    1.) Will players who are not mages ever have the chance of marking runes with a tool like a rune maker?
    2.) Will there ever be a fix on house customization so that player do not have to redeed items like elven furniture and fountains of life?

    What I asked (approximation, can't remember exact words :p) :

    Q1 - Is there a reason shadow jump is more sensitive to z-axis than teleport

    Q2 - what's the actual mana regen formula now

    I really like the "Ask the Devs" forum, even when we not had seen anything answared yet.

    It gives devs a chance to find the questions and may work much better than FOF.

    I did post two questions, not something I want to add here as it had been debattet here several times but I really want to know if Devs do consider changes it.

    I asked:

    Are you considering giving 3rd party tool approval to the UOC (new UOAM)

    I asked.. again...

    What happened to the tamable Fairy Dragons? The website stated they would be tamable with a taming/pet description all the way up to the SA release... where it then was removed... I was disappointed and would like an explanation...

    I did request if they are to remain untamable... is there any chance that we be allowed to get them in a crystal as a gift or loot drop somewhere.

    Question I just submitted:

    Retrievability of Items That Fall Under A House

    Is it actually impossible given current game mechanics for GMs to retrieve items that fall under a player's house? Or, rather, are GMs being randomly lazy or obnoxious when they give the famous boilerplate response that GMs cannot replace lost items...even though you have explained very clearly in a help request initiated by a character that owns the house what has happened and what you have already tried to do to retrieve the item from under your house and that you can still SEE that the item exists and has not disappeared from the game yet?

    (I searched for old threads about this issue and have unsuccessfully tried the trick of customizing with teleporter tiles and using a character logged in on another account; e-fielding through the floor; and using a horde minion. Nothing worked. )

    I asked :

    1) Is there any chance of a complete overhual of the in-game Customer support system(GMs)?

    2) Is there any chance EAMythic would consider using veteran UO players as
    volunteer GMs?

    Fix the "run mouse in a seperate thread" to save my settings so that I don't have to constantly re-start UO.

    I did edit the uo.cfg file and that lasted all of a day before it started messing up again.

    REALLY ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As I'm the mod for the place that the player-answerable questions go to, I know my question will be looked at the devs, and not shunted elsewhere.

    My question(s) post was:

    First, Thanks for fixing the long standing bug that left leather in the corpse if one had 63 items in your pack or over 340-350 stone total weight.

    Questions:
    1. will the Skinning knife ever get the option to use in the pack, without being wielded, like the Butcher's War Cleaver and Harvester's Blade?

    2. Will the Skinning Knife and/or Butcher's War Cleaver get some of the resource functionality of the Harvester's Blade (i.e. getting more items than just leather). Not the special bonus of 10% extra, but just some of the items.

    3. Is it possible to get the Harvester's Blade (And the other tools, if they get the ability to harvest more than leather) to have a setting, similar to mining tools, to exclude meat, meat & blood, etc.? Most people won't want the meat under most circumstances.

    Do you ever intend to actually answer some of the questions or is this just something the stratics guys made up without EA/Mythic even knowing about it?

    //Edit:
    Ups, forgot the actual question I asked:
    * Will we ever get house customization for L-shape, tower, keep or castle or are those 4 abandoned for good?

    That's certainly not the case.. We catered to their request of such a forum.
