Like JET SKI's for UO.
Hook us up! I need to chase down some pirates!
however, wut about bolas? my toon cannot swim!
You can't bola someone off of a jet ski man!
We were promised these with one of the previous expansions, but the devs couldn't make it work,
I do not recall such an event....On that note they already have Ridable Seahorses they just do not spawn, basically they are just not "in game" it is not a complicated thing, I am sure there is some other reason aside from "it don't work" because basically it is a one tile boat that you command with your mouse. (I have not checked the UO file folder for some time so unless they removed them they are in fact a part of the client)
The seahorses were supposed to spawn in Ilshenar with the launch of LBR because you can't place boats there. Then they scrapped that idea at the last moment.
Ridable seahorses they are nice idea, but I would go more for a water dragon so it could be ridden on land or on the water. and it would be for everyone not just tamers
Ahh, that sure is a hell of a long time ago lol.
one of my friends is playing in a free shard and they have it... its like a horse that run in the water, is very fun but they have problems when someone die... the body will fall in the water and you can't move with the ghost
The animation files actually exist in the 3D client.
Is that to say they are no longer present in the 2d client? They use to be there, but again I have not checked in a bit of time so it could have been removed I guess.
I've never dived into the 2D client's animation files.
if i ever see someone riding a sea horse in ultima online i will quit immediatly, lose my mind, and become a hello kitty island adventure adict.
So are we to take it you are against this idea? lol.
I Hello Kitty!!
Ohhh I want a hello kitty bumper sticker for my seahorse jet ski!!
I'd rather have rowboats with huge steampunk magical motors that you have to feed with puppies and elves. They'd look like a fireplace with gears and a big windmill that spits fireballs behind you.
Plus you could point it away from shore and blast people on the shoreline with it.
Honestly though, I'd rather to be able to ride dolphins or water/wind elementals.
Imagine the pvp fights you could have on a jet-ski! lol
Been thinking about this but how would that work lol, If everyone on one side dies, does that mean its time to pull out the old help button? lol

Nah you're just teleported to the closest land, like when a boat decays out from under you.
Nope, you are popped onto a "life raft"/"wreckage" that is one tile and doesn't move. You have 2 minutes to decide what to do, then it decays and you are washed to the nearest shoreline.
Then you add icebergs so we can have some Titanic wrecks and lots of drama.
Hey now I thought of this !!
And they're not seahorses! They're SQUEAKERS!
I'm curious to know if you received an infraction for posting the words "free shard". Let me know, I look forward to pointing out the hypocrisy of a certain someone.
Lynk I am pretty sure the rule is you can talk about free shards but not advertise them.
See, this is the difference between girls and boys. Or engineers. Or boys who are engineers! Heh.
I want customizable pirateships with cannons that can be used to wage a sea battle with other ships...
Seahorses, steampunk speedboats, and huge customizable ships would be great ideas for a UOirates! expansion... And sea vortices...
Airships would be cool too! And I have supportive arguments - See, ballons existed in the previous Ultimas. And I am not talking about the pre-cannon U1-U3 (where you can also find space shuttles). U4 is canon, and has a balloon outside Hyloth. So there.
