    spyglass of the oracle
    You peer into the spyglass, images swirl in your mind as the magic device searches.
    The location you seek is: ~1_val~
    The spyglass goes dark, it has failed to find what you seek.

    Target commodity items or filled commodity deeds in your backpack to add them to the broker's inventory. These items will be retrievable, and the broker will not trade them until you establish prices.When done, cancel your targeting cursor and click the button below to return to the main menu.
    Transfer of funds from the broker to your bank box failed. Please check the amount to transfer is available in the broker's account, and make sure your bank box is able to hold the new funds without becoming overloaded.
    You have added ~1_QUANTITY~ units of ~2_ITEMNAME~ to the inventory of "~3_SHOPNAME~"
    You have removed ~1_QUANTITY~ units of ~2_ITEMNAME~ from the inventory of "~3_SHOPNAME~"
    That item is not a commodity that a broker can trade.

    I like the option to display Legacy paperdolls. It actually was one of the hardest things to get used to in the KR or SA clients. I've now played the EC almost exclusively though for more than a year. Now, when I load up the classic client the paperdoll seems strange.

    Very interesting finds...

    A new armor sets.. Hmm.. I wonder how many trillion points we will need for those...

    Could that be a magic specialization like for barding?

    Maybe it's a rebirth of Hero Evil?

    Also looks like something about selling pets on a special vendor.

    Pet Broker perhaps?

    Looks like it. Thats a shame IMHO, selling pets was one of the few ways I was getting to interact with people in game.

    Good stuff! I'm excited to hear the actual announcement on how these strings will be implemented in game. My guess is that this is all in prep for a big pub 70.

    Why keep making the ec look more like the 2d....no one will switch over this plus I happen to find the 2d paperdoll ugly and out of scale, at least it looks like it's toggleable. Maybe there is a toggle for kr graphics hidden in there, that would be nice!

    EC makes some people sick, So if they add 2D paperdolls and 2D models (I wish!) then the only difference is the UI and ground art (which I think is fantastic).

    So hopefully it will help solve those issues.

    The EC fixes are nice...Some of my chars look better in CC, others in EC. It's nice having that option. All that would really remain to do is add in more features folk use from UOA and go over some of the artwork which still needs love.

    As for the trading things I'll wait till we get the full details on what can be traded and the mechanics. I don't want pet vendors in any form if I'm honest. Pet vendors in Luna buying and reselling from everyone else will really put a spanner in the works for some of us. Commodity trading sounds great if you're a scripter :p

    The rest all sounds interesting and cool, I'm keen to see how it all fits together.

    Actually, with this change, it would be highly likely that I'd change over to the EC and use it more and more...one of the things I truly hated about the EC was the loss of legacy paperdolls.

  20. Argh. Thats funny. Thats Scary. And its accurate with the way this game is going. Its dress-up UO. Not explore and adventure UO.

    Though exploring the realm in a teddy bear costume sounds..... CREEPY.

    Well, there are more reasons why people have issues with the EC. But the paperdolls are one of my bigger concerns and pet pee wees.
     
  22. Woodsman

    I've heard some kind of auction house and some kind of pet broker thing.

    I don't care for either one because to me they remove a little more personal interaction from the game, and that is always bad for UO. I hate Luna with a passion, but I don't think the solution is to remove personal interactions.

    I'd rather they add a /Trade (Global) chat channel.

    One thing I will say is that if we're all right that that's two new armor sets, I'd like to briefly argue against the kilt having properties without the rest of the suit.

    In brief I think there's enough slots that have item properties. We don't need another.

    If you want an unconventional slot for the suit , how about the robe or sash slot or something. Make it a Tunic instead of a kilt, so people can have something in that slot other than a sash.

    Same argument goes if all of these are separate items, I'd argue against using the kilt.

    Remember every time you give properties to a slot other than the ones we have items with properties for, you make the item a "must have" for that slot, which just makes us look more alike, which kills one of UO's most important assets: Variety.

    Better, I would suggest, to give us more items for slots that are already filled with propertied items, thus giving us more variety.

    Now of course this doesn't apply if the pieces are part of an armor set and the Kilt is deco-only without the rest of the suit.

    Interesting. I wonder if they're allowing us to turn our virtue armor suits into something that isn't fairly worthless.

    I pretty much agree. However, I think the world art in the EC needs to be sharpened up, some of it is too dull looking.

    A problem might be the number of frames in the animations. If the EC is 2.5D then they must have quite a few more. So the old art wouldn't work the same way, and might not work at all.

    What I wish they'd do is make new avatar/MOB art that is along the same style of the CC (realistic, sharp), but better, and put that into the EC. Sharpen what needs to be sharpened elsewhere. Fix what needs to be fixed in the EC. And then drop the old CC.

    And I wish they'd drop the slotted backpack.
    The Lamb of God is full of wrath!
    Jeebus, people, the backpack, organizing it, using it, that all used to be part of the game play in this marvelous world of Sosaria. You people want everything handed to you so much that you need your mommas to pick up your bedrooms and organize you backpacks too. Sheesh.

    Expansion Pack

    How long since UO High Seas came out? And how long did they say between expansion packs? IMO an auction house or game-wide vendor system could be enough of a must-have to become the heart of an expansion.

    Only those who buy the expansion can use the vendor system. Add 20% more storage and I would buy it.

    This is just opinions, NOT supported by any developer statements or other evidence.

    A pet broker would be a tremendous addition. I don't know how many times in the past I thought of getting a pet of one kind or another, but just didn't hassle with it because it wasn't a real need. Plus, having trained up packies would be something I'd like to invest in, as I don't care too much for beetles and bugs.

    Back then, backpacks weren't so super cluttered as they are becoming now. Not to mention, the advent of insurance had the unintended side-effect of requiring everything in top of backpack, so you can't just make sub bags.

    You really can't compare the game of today with how it was played back then.

    I've recently had insured items (or maybe blessed) in secondary packs stay with me at death. But I understand your point regardless of insurance.

    Are we allowed to speculate on this? Last time we did the thread was locked. :eyes:

    Maybe the pet message is when using a packy to transport goods to the merchant for selling and not a pet broker at all.

    Pretty hard to read that any other way than the sale of pets on a vendor.

    Mind you there was a cliloc some time ago that indicated we might be able to copy characters over to TC, but that doesn't appear to have happened yet, so who knows if this will go any further than the cliloc...

    I've done some thread cleanup.
    Last time I checked this thread wasn't started to debate the ability of cheaters to use one client more easily than the other. Stay on topic, we don't need the arguing/debate in this thread.

    You've been warned.

    Legacy paperdoll art has me intrigued. No more constipated male models, hopefully.

    I'll reserve comment on the other stuff. Hopefully the State of the Game introduces us to what they have in store for it. Any hints in the game files of when that letter may appear? :D

    Not out of touch at all here. You'll find me most nights selling pets of some description at a bank / global chat on Europa. If there was a single broker people could just buy off that would totally remove the personal touch. I would miss that. Whats the point in playing an MMO if you never have to interact with other people eh? rolleyes:

    Also, search sites and an in game system are totally different. A heck of a lot of people don't look outside the game they play for 3rd party sources of info / sales. Everybody that plays UO posts on stratics right? rolleyes: An ingame system such as an auction house has a far higher chance of taking that personal touch away than a 3rd party website seller thing.

    To me, every change that is made should be run past somebody who asks if it will cut down on player interaction.

    If it cuts down on players interacting with one another, it should be studied very carefully.

    In which case, why do we have vendors at all? Maybe the only way you can sell items in game should be by spamming at a bank, or in chat? A lot of people have been asking for the ability to put pets on a vendor for a very long time. It would be a terrific change, and there is nothing to prevent anyone who wants to sell pets the old school ways from doing so, just as there is nothing to prevent anyone from selling any item in those ways.

    Yeah, lets focus on unannounced pixelcrack and unannounced 'features' and completely ignore the near three months of god-awful communication from Mythic.

    That's weird, I don't feel like communication has been so "god-awful". They've clearly been undergoing some turmoil in their merger with Bioware, so I'm willing to cut them some slack, but in the meantime if you check out their Facebook page, they have been far from silent.

    The merger with BioWare was a year ago, they only recently got around to changing the name to BioWare Mythic.

    Furthermore, irrespective of any "turmoil," posting a brief message saying something to the effect of "Unforeseen issues, please bare with us..." to the Herald or even here takes a few mins. That they haven't bothered to do that is unacceptable.

    Those few mins would have quelled a lot of anxiety.

    You mean the message posted Jan. 28th? The one for which the "next week" has come and gone?

    So in other words, another Epic Fail?
