    It's been a long time since I've seen this tool (5+ years?). But I'm fairly sure it was hosted on Stratics.

    It was a simple little box, with all the possible directions bound to it. You'd press the button for the direction you'd want to go and it would say the corresponding direction in game.

    True. I can (and do) bind the exact same thing pretty much to my numpad. But I'm curious if this tool is still around. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    UORudder! Soon as I logged off UO for the morning the name hit me.

    And yes, it is hosted on stratics still! Will have to give it a try.

    Been giving it a quick try. So much easier than my numpad macros!

    It has had a permanent place on my toolbar for forever, it is the ONLY way to sail.

    Why waste clicks and screen space when you can sail directly via mouse-control?

    I find sailing with the mouse horrendous.

    Very hard to do that when doing SoSes or mining at sea.

    Hard enough to do it while trying to fire cannons. I'd hate to mine doing it!

    Serious respect though if you manage it Dot. Must take serious multitasking skills :)

    Pinco has an awesome macro system already in place and I pretty much built a UO Rudder in Pinco's for the EC.
