    Give me some new sea monsters or a quest NPC to ship items from Brit to some port in the middle of the sea. Make it so you cant mark, gate or recall on it. I also want a cannon on my boat!

    (I know, I know, been begging for Sea content for years and years) but its like we have a waste of space, We waste 3/4 of the map. How about a sea boathouse? So I can impress the ladies with my big ship.

    ps. I hear one of the Associate Producers just loves building designs that don't line up and are complicated.

    Okay I'm done.

    They were supposed to be the Kraken at some point, I seem to recall.

    Not sure if they ever mapped it to anything or not.

    The seas of UO are a great expanse, which have great potential and are often devoid of players.

    Great things could be done.

    Last time I saw a great sea battle, was oooohh.... far far too long ago, pre-2000 (most likely pre-Tram) I would say. By great I'm meaning 20+ ships, each with at least 2-3 players on-board.

    If the oceans were all Fel ruleset, this might add some spice to fishing trips, knowing that a pirate ship might pop over the horizon at any time.

    Ships themselves need some love and should I think, be bigger than they are. Certainly double the width and length of the largest dragon ship.

    We have cannon in game as rewards and static environmental artwork, so why not have some on a ship? What it fires could be something similar to a fireball or along those lines for damage. Therefore, ships could take damage. If damaged to zero, ship sinks, players "drown" and are teleported as ghosts to a shrine to rez.

    There's lot's of ideas that could make use of the seas I'm sure. :)

    That takes me back. God I miss the days of trying to escape those reds. Trying to come up with quick turns that they couldn't match. I even had a macro setup and timed it so I could escape. Sometimes the PKs would like stalk you. Just staying far enough back. Then another PK boat would come up along side you and they would box you. So you could only go forward, backwards or try a dead stop. Yeah I do miss that allot.

    Cant they make a monster that is a ship and just shows a monster standing on it? hehe :stretcher:
