    For testing purposes for the imbuing skill is there a command for the Test Server to set the Loyalty to the Gargoyle Queen at 10,000 ?

    What is it ?

    Also, the test server command "give tokens" does not give any race change token.

    Is there a way to turn into a Gargoyle without having to delete a character and make a new gargoyle one ?
    What command would it be ?

    Seriously ??

    On the TEST server which is there to test stuff there is no command to set Loyalty to 10,000 which is important for the imbuing skill ??

    Really ?

    One has to actually work it up spending time to do it rather than testing what one needs to test ?

    I am speechless.................

    This makes no sense to me.

    I mean, it is a TEST server and give tokens gives me a BUNCH of useless heritage tokens but no race change token ?

    And the fact that crafting talismans are not available is also most incredible.

    How is one supposed to get some testing done without all of the tools needed ???

    Seriously! Go test gaining Loyalty and make sure it works. I know you will come back and give all the reasons why you should not have to do this and everything else.

    You answered it yourself ! I had worked a test character there and managed to get most everything i needed in the bank and with the last change to tc1 lost it all!

    Why is loyalty important for imbuing exactly?

    to be able to use the queens forge ! and that gives a good boost to chances to make things!

    and this is important for testing for the production shards to be accurate!

    Fyi you can still unravel though (pretty sure will go test it now)

    Tested and confirmed!

    Ahh, makes sense. I'm sure they will add this change for test soon. It took a while before other new features finally made it to test in the past.

    Example being spell-weaving. Took quite a while before they made a special gate so we could by-pass the whole quest to get the skill.

    As for this...it's a test center. You don't need race change tokens as it isn't a real shard. And I'm positive you don't need EVERY character slot, lmao.

    That is why there should be a command and not have to work it up.

    Because the Test Server gets wiped periodically (as it is normal for a test server) and having to re-work the loyalty all the way up each and every time just makes no sense whatsoever to me.

    What do you mean exactly with "you can still unravel though" ?

    Do I understand it right that, contrary to the production server on the Test Server the Loyalty to the Queen is NOT factored in and one can use the Queen's Forge "as if" one had 10,000 Loyalty even if one is at zero loyalty ?

    Is this what you meant ?

    on production server the queens forge can be used to unravel magic items and you dont need loyalty as for test center I would have to check it may be possible you dont need loyalty for either but I am to busy to check atm!

    Well, yes, but it is a psychological thing......

    I mean, deleting characters which I KNOW are developed on the pertaining production shard gives me a cold feeling on my spine even when this is only on test server.....

    Sort of like I am always reluctant to place a house on test server.

    I know, it does no harm to the house on the production shard but nonetheless, bugs, mulfunctioning code, whatever, I never ever feel comfortable with making permanent choices with the test server.

    It is a psychological thing as I said......

    I'd rather have a race token and not have to delete anything to make room for a Gargoyle..

    I know I know.............

    The thing is, that I need to know how the Queen's BONUS factors in.

    That is why I was going to use the Queen Forge.

    Now, "if" on test loyalty is out of the picture BUT the bonus is still all there, then I am fine with it.

    But I DO need to know, besides being able to unravel at the Queen's Forge, whether ALSO the bonus is calculated even though one has 0 loyalty.

    How do I know this ?

    By testing it?

    If you need loyalty to use the forge...and you can use it then it would be likely that the bonus will be there. You can compare the created items with items NOT made at the forge.

    So go test it.

    Anecdotal, at best, but yes, the bonus is definitely there, Popps - I unraveled a few borderline items at my home soulforge, and got only residue - I then went to the queens soulforge and, unraveling the same type of borderline items, got essence. This was before I had the 10k loyalty.

    no there are many things on the TC you cant do that you should.
    saying give resources should give you the resources again and again and again.. not just once.

    in the tool bag there should be a 30/30 talisman for each crafting skill.

    many imbuing resources arent available yet.. hopefully one day they add them in.

    they should wipe all the houses out once a week no matter what.
    trying to figure if a house fits in a certain location sucks if someone stuck a house there and has left it.

    You got your answer and you asked another four times? Really? Truly? :eek:

    Just do these commands:

    "set skills kickass"
    "set stats awesome"

    Then go kill some toxic sliths. You'd be done in less time than you've spent on this thread. :thumbup1:

    Not everything is provided on Test, notably the things that require testing at some point such as gaining loyalty or other newer systems.
     
  27. Now you're complaining about Test Center, where you get nearly every single thing in the game handed to you on a silver platter?

    Seriously, is there anything in UO you actually like? Why do you bother logging in every day to a game that you hate so much?

    Really? TC.

    T test - C center

    How many times has things been covered on threads that was found on Test and still made it to release.

    How many ways to abuse a new system before release that never gets reported. Then it takes a few months for them to fix, when those that have got their fill and want it fixed so they control the market.

    Test Center should be made into a perm free shard. And anyone ever on Beta Test should have their privates and nipples in vises. X+Y= buttload of Z. Any X+Y issue is found and any Beta Tester is found with or about a butload of Z they should be drop kicked away from their vices.

    Hell if you can't police the shards at least police TC and Beta. Anyone whos head was in the sunshine the first few weeks of SA knew where to find the abuse. Queens forge.

    Take a few those GMs and give them extra rice to play the games and report what is going on from the trenches.

    Really somethings in the game boil down to rubbing that left and right brain cell together and play the game. Wont be bored in two weeks and ranting for months about the lateness of the next upgrade. Learn to fail and get better at learning.

    From what I gather in popps rantings on several threads is that he shouldn't have to actually do anything to have an accomplishment. It should all just be laid out to him on a silver platter.
