Thank you for the Seeds Box, but can we also get it for other items ?

    Thanks for the Seeds Box, it was much needed.

    Could we now, please, also get something similar but for Treasure Maps (a Treasure Map Binder sort of like a Bulk Order Deeds Book ?), for Fishing Nets (a fisherman's trunk), for Jewellery (a jewellery case?), for Armor (Armoires to store up suits...).

    Perhaps they could be made as craftables to bring new life to crafters ?

    But they could also be introduced as gifts or rewards like it was for the Seeds Box though, I'd prefer if they were made as craftables.......

    why not for weapons, ps, alacrity and crafting resources? :p

    Fishing nets is not much useful (that just need to be stackable), maybe for sos would works better...

    this way we will have all nice containers to keep things easy to recognize :)

    Put your armour on mannequins? I doubt anyone has enough suits that they are causing a serious issue with lockdown space.

    There is certainly more items which could get some storage love like seeds received with the seed box.....

    SoSes ceretainly, and Messages in a Bottle could very well be made stackable as they are all just alike. It is the SoS which is spawned by a MiB which has varied coordinates.....

    Re: [UO Herald] Critical Fix To Origin


    You mean, we have been given a Book to help store Scrolls of Trascendency before one to help store Treasure Maps ???

    Treasure Maps Books are way long overdue, IMHO. I find it disappointing that the Developers have decided to first accomodate the need to better store Scrolls of Trascendency rather than to help better store Treasure Maps first. At least, they could have done them both at the same time......

    SOTs are cut and dry and few in number. Tmaps have levels locations and lands making them as sortable as those wishing for a jewelry box. Stop hoarding jewelry you'll never wear and sell or unravel it. Get off your lazy arse and go do the Tmaps or just turn them in for points at the library or trash can. Hoarding and collecting are not the same thing.

    Re: [UO Herald] Critical Fix To Origin

    Maps also have other markers - decoded or not... and since the big overhaul to t-hunting don't they they also 'reset' locations if decoded and not dug up within a period of time?

    But in responding to popps, we're takingthe thread away from it's purpose - and since popps already has a thread running about tmap books, maybe a mod will shift a few of these posts there, where they seem to belong...

    Use it or stop hoarding. Do the Tmap or turn it in at the library. Toss that net in the water and run away like a little girl if you have to. Toss a bunch of armor, jewels and weapons in a bag and drop it on the ground at someones toes in Haven and recall away.

    Spring cleaning is not always about points and rewards. Roll that Big Green City Trashcan into your house and it dont leave till it is full. In UO it is buy two packhorses and fill them up. Park them at Fel Yew gate and go home and log out.

    Besides the fact that there are players who like to play different styles, which is, for example, hunting monsters and putting away whatever good loot they got from them (for example Treasure Maps....). Then, when they feel doing them, they spend several days doing just Treasure Maps. Not to mention, that decoding Maps helps raising the skill so having many handy helps raise Cartography more.

    But even following your point, since we just got Scrolls of Transcendency Books, I do not see why your point should not work also for SOTs (simply use them up or give them to whom needs to use them...).

    Besides, SOTs can already be binded together in 1 bigger SOT so, I wonder, why spend time to add to the game a SOT book when instead a Treasure Map book was much more needed ?

    So why not toss away Bulk Order Deeds, Scrolls of Trascenbdency, Seeds, and all other items which can be stored more efficiently in a single container ?

    I cannot quite follow you. If a player stored Treasure Maps, for example, this means that this players is planning at some point to do them. Why should he/she discard them ?
    I do not see any reason.

    Indeed, such a player could gratefully welcome the addition of a book to better contain them and help towards their storage count.

    Besides, if these items' containers are made as craftables, they would bring some new life to crafting and I do not possibly see any reason against bringing new craftables and new life to crafting in the game.

    Bottom line is, I do not see why there could not be an addition of new items like special containers to help players better and more efficiently store their items.

    I do not see how, having a Book to better store Treasure Maps like there is for BODs and now for Seeds and SOTs, would be like having the game play by itself........

    And this, when this game has had scripters for how many years now ?

    I just do not understand it.

    Lets just make EVERYTHING set to EASY mode to make sure all players are the same.
    Make all 3rd party programs ok to use in UO.
    Take away anything you may have to think about.
    But then I am sure you would come up with something to post about.
    Why don't we BLAH BLAH BLAH.
    This should be BLAH BLAH BLAH
    Can we have BLAH BLAH BLAH

    All shards should have TC1 commands.
    Set all skills 1200 (all skills set to 120, no more 720 skill cap)
    Set all stats 1000000
    Set GOD mode (all resists are set to 1000000, no armor/weps needed anymore)
    Kill all (1 hit slap kills everything, no damage taken)
    Auto loot everything to House
    Recall home
    House auto sort everything
    House where is XYZ

    UO is balanced for all players now.

    As a T-Hunter myself I think a t-map book would be very nice and a great way to save space. Nothing quite like having 100's of maps in a box taking up space in the bank, forced to move to your house and having to try and sort out the levels of difficulty.

    I just have 1 question then, if making UO easier to play is such a bad thing, why scripting and third party programs have been used in UO since many, many years ??

    I mean, why not just do an extraordinary effort to stop their use in UO for good ?

    Are you really going to turn your own thread into an off-topc train wreck by going off into that pointless flammable topic? Wait...you do have a tendency to do that a lot, sorry, lol.

    Mind you the the reason I bring this up is you're bring scripting and illegal programs into the topic to justify an idea. Horrible idea.
