    Is there one?

    Its weird after playing WoW and using Vent for so long not to really use it anymore now that I only play UO again.

    hehe.

    i don't think there is any whole shard communication. It's just used by individual groups and guilds for day to day and events.
    i played WoW and i miss that aspect too.........but in UO you seldom play with random people, so yeah.

    All the more reason to have a shard vent server.

    I think i'll host one. :) details to follow soon. happily give guilds PW protected chans also.

    Yesss that sounds great!

    All the large guilds would have it if course, but no, there isn't a shard one. Over the past month I had been seriously thinking of providing one actually, a sort of NEW and shard server which could be used for events.

    However, two things worry me. Firstly, I don't know how many would actually use such a thing judging by the number of folk who turn up to community events and the numbers of NEW members that use the existing one. Second, I don't know if the owner of such a facility - which could be accessed by basically anyone who has the IP info - would technically be liable for anything if, say, someone used it to abuse other people or something like that in this litigious age in which we live.

    Also, there is that new Stratics communication thing that is being tested. I was going to look into that but can't find where it can be accessed now.

    I was late getting into Connector because my mic outlet didn't work so I had to get a sound card for my pc. Now I have one, have signed up for it, but there's no one to talk to on it. I made a channel for siege perilous, Let me know if anyone's logging in to it. Sitting in an empty channel is no fun.

    I found my way there using this link:
    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?p=42248#post42248

    Now sitting in the Siege Perilous channel. Anyone who's got it, come say 'hi'.

    Im just gotta do a typefrag hosted server 35 people limit for now. Should I have it hosted in Cali or Texas? hmmm

    Even better though would be someones exisiting server and just up the user limit (if its low) and open it up to everyone, let guilds make guild chans etc. I'd be willing to pitch in.

    i would like to see something shard wide. When i played before that was a very difficult aspect of the game from a solo point of view. Had no idea where people were and what they were doing until the board pvp showed up after the fact. That has been the factor for my leaving every time i have.
    Siege being such a small population, i think it would be helpful. Well from my point of view i think it would be. i'm sure from some of the guilds point of view it wouldn't matter to them either way, since their methods of communication are in place.

    well, it's free, if it will run on my rig I'd say it will run on just about anything. My pc is a heck of a long way from top of the range, and people with no mic are not excluded, it's possible to listen in and then type replies.

    To know where they are so you can go take their stuff.

    Perhaps you will get access to the Alpha Test forum when you get signed up for Connector.

    How long does it take to hear about a sign-up request? I sent one in a few days ago and haven't heard anything yet.

    Sent an email for the connector, hopefully I get a reply soon.

    I've used Vivox based voice servers in EVE and EQ2 before and they sound great. Better than Teamspeak, and around Ventrilo quality. I hope this one is the same.
