    a Wearables adjuster.

    Explanation: A tool (maybe with limited charges) to change one piece of armor, weapon or clothing to another type in the same slot and material. whilst keeping the stats.

    In example:
    Leather Tunic -> Female Leather Armor
    Enchanted Kelp woven leggins -> Leather skirt with same properties.
    Conjurer's garb -> Plain Dress with same bonuses
    .. (add yours here)

    Let me just emphasize that it would effer up things good unless it was same slot only. letting it remaining cosmetic.

    This would be an unfair advantages for the game... we must keep the character ugliness! :lol:

    Joke apart, how many times have been requested? I've lost the count.... probably requires too much time to be made for devs, so the costs are too heavy even if they put it for sale at 20$ :(

    it cant be that hard, didnt they make a box in brit somewhere that does this with vet robes?

    well i guess the new devs arent as good as the old devs, so maybe it is impossible.

    it't not hard, just takes lot of time...
    Simply they have to calculate every kind of wearable item what can be turned into.
    Then changing the image should not vary the basic item type, and I don't know if actually is possible without making some changes...
    After that they need to consider the burocracy time to put something else for sale, and the time to fix all the bugs when it goes live (we all know well that there is always something to fix...).

    Pinco is right to some extend, it does require some coding.

    part of the reason why i posted as i did, since time gone in to it need to pay off in other end.

    .. and as this is not a general weighted issue whether people pay sub or not, its an ideal item for uogamecodes.

    Let's face it, as much as we would like it, mythic is not adding features for our blue eyes sake (or whichever color they are) there need to be a strategic plan how to make best value of time. It's a business after all.

    I'm not saying the feature is to trash, I've also posted this time ago and IMHO is necessary...

    I would pay for a uncoded T Map Book. Drop one in, just remembers lands and level. Pull out and spawns same lands and level with fresh random location. Why I said uncoded storage book. Wouldn't want anyone abusing it to change hard spot to easier location


    With turn in for T maps guess problem solved.


    As far as wearables. Can med in or not is one seperation. With all the resist bumps now and imbuing the base resist for different types should be made the same. Just make the skullcap/ninja hood/plate helm all the same base resist as an example. Only limitation with alteration of a wearable slot is if it can be medded in or not. Only item that sits way out the base resist is the scale armor. Coolest looking armor and they never really did anything with it anyway. Really like to change my hunters headdress into a tricorn.

    The mage armor mod is just that and would not open the option for AoF to be changed into a leather bustier.


    Weapons with their abilities are just SOL. Shields just give them all a 1/1/1/1/1 base resist and let their art be altered. Add in an elbow buckler so mages can get away from having their hands full look.

    The wearables thing is often requested. I fully support it.

    And the thing is, they'd TOTALLY make money off of this. A lot, probably, even if you sold it for a dollar a charge/ use.

    I'd also think mounts would be a sure fire thing with only minimal need as far as art and coding. Want to ride a cow? A goat? I mean, I understand that with the way art works certain larger animals would be more of an issue (ie taller creatures like dragons) but there are a lot of horse sized creatures you could add as mounts. Charge 5.99 and there you are.

    This would be a great idea. Some of the most usable items in UO suffer from being so ungodly ugly. I normally wear monk robes or the hooded elven robes to try and counter act this. But I would gladly lay down some money to be able to just make them look less ugly.

    Code:
    Item      graphic   descript   stat1  stat2  stat3 stat4
     a            b             c           d       e       f      g
    
    if itemSwpevent( "d" ) = TRUE
        update items set graphic = "d" where item = "a"
    end if 
    
    I would think you could get it in this ammount of code, as well as a subroutine, procedure, function or w.e ever you want to refer to it as.

    this is assuming they have a table structure that supports something like this

    Man, you just resolved this issue.........:bowdown:

    With this kind of coding structure, you should be working for Mr. Bill Gates...:loser:

    Right on, with in 2 minutes at work would you mind giving your own example ?

    Or are you one of the people that go to sports and point and say Oh I can do better then him, and yet never show that you can.

    Your credibility is null.

    also just fyi: Pseudocode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
