The Nifty 50. Quick items I'd like to see in UO.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, Jun 2, 2008.

  1. 1 - Arties given out for strictly PvP/Faction accomplishments.
    2 - Useable Tarot Cards
    3 - In-game poker
    4 - BODs for the other crafting skills (Cooking, Carpentry, Tinkering)
    5 - Bomb boxes coming back
    6 - Bards able to make money by playing for NPCs at Taverns.
    7 - Bank notifications (notify when you drop to a certain amount, etc)
    8 - Music box options (randomly play, repeat)
    9 - Stackable flour and stackable chocolatiering ingredients.
    10 - Masonry improvements to your house - gargoyles, basins, sconces, etc
    11 - Medals (awardable by guilds) and a medal case house improvement.
    12 - Porters. When you are overloaded in a city, you can hire a porter at 10gp per extra stone to take an indicated item to the bank.
    13 - Gravesites dedicated to longtime vets who quit.
    14 - Necros getting a boost of power at midnight.
    15 - Poison Elementals actually dropping GPs and DPs.
    16 - A nifty second tier ultra item if you turn in a complete set of Doom Arties.
    17 - Roulette wheels in Buccaneer's Den
    18 - Occasional NPC raids into dungeons (so they can die and we can loot their stuff) :p
    19 - Brigands getting tougher -- maybe have an ultra powerful one randomly pop in and out, with a sizeable bounty if you can kill him.
    20 - A war map with factions, with a color coded depiction of Britannia -- who owns what.
    21 - Less footwear in the oceans.
    22 - Ghost pirate ships.
    23 - The ability for one person per faction to place a faction guildhouse in Felucca, without affecting his own house ownership status.
    24 - Ability to lay in a huge order (ie 1000 scrolls) with an NPC vendor.
    25 - Something to do with those plague beast mutation cores.
    26 - A filter to make vendors who have nothing for sale appear grey.
    27 - An alert if a purchase will drop your bank account to half or lower.
    28 - The hotkey ability to make your character let loose with an evil diabolical laugh.
    29 - CW showing up on the buff bar.
    30 - The ability to stable your pets at your house, provided you leave a certain space/storage for just that purpose.
    31 - Christmas carol music gears as a holiday prize.
    32 - A mongbat peerless (I keep pushing for that)
    33 - Useable beds in houses for logout... with char sleeping in them while offline.
    34 - The ability to mount a weapon as a trophy.
    35 - A brief chime that lets you know you did enough damage to a Doom Monster to be considered for an arty drop.
    36 - Have Nix thrown into the Stygian Abyss for usury practices.
    37 - Flags/flagpoles for faction towns showing the current owner.
    38 - Wanted posters of PKs. Use a blank scroll on a red name, viola.
    39 - A book gump for KR: I hate those menu-looking things.
    40 - Useable War Wardrobe: double click on it and it decks you out in your armor set definition.... or into prechosen "street clothes." Currently unused sets are stored within.
    41 - Wedding cakes bakeable by GM chefs. Even goth necro wedding cakes.
    42 - Caltrops for ninjas. Those failing dex checks get fatigued.
    43 - Tinkers restoring uses to (non-special) sewing kits and toolkits.
    44 - Specific labels for the ales and booze... Dragon's Breath. Der Katzenpizz.
    45 - Framed diplomas from Bedlam.
    46 - Useable banquet tables, which get dressed up when a GM chef adds enough to them. They decay back to bare as people eat on it or time elapses.
    47 - Filled bookcases.
    48 - Threads of Fate to actually appear in KR
    49 - Chiming clocks.
    50 - Flying carpets!

    Bart (to Homer): Do you even HAVE a job any more???

    The only one I think wouldn't be an absolute waste of development time or have huge negative repercussions is #26.

    I'd also like to have parrots names hued differently because right now you think you're running up to a vendor house, but some idiot just has fifty parrots inside.

    The fifty things I would l ike to see is:

    Fix fifty things that are broken first.
  4. So you are FOR the billions of boots, sandles and shoes in our oceans?

    Gives a new meaning to the term offshore Scholls....
  5. hmmmmm

    How'd you get from
    26 - A filter to make vendors who have nothing for sale appear grey.

    For me personally, these are the best ones on the list:
    4 - BODs for the other crafting skills (Cooking, Carpentry, Tinkering)
    9 - Stackable flour and stackable chocolatiering ingredients.
    26 - A filter to make vendors who have nothing for sale appear grey.

    With #9, the list could be expanded to include more things, like sand & granite just to name 2.

    Uh, ya. It's pretty thematic frankly. Fishing up boots. That's iconic imagery associated with the life of an angler. It's also a cool form of innuendo that people actually sailed on the seas and fought and lost battles and ended up at the bottom.

    At any rate, I'm sure it distrubs me so little that, as I said, I'd be pretty upset that the dev team wasted all the time changing it when they could have been doing something with WAY more impact for the entire population.

    I had to look up "caltrop." Found two definitions: One about star thistles and/or puncture vines; the other about a device with four metal points so arranged that when any three are on the ground, the fourth projects upward as a hazard to horse hooves or pneumatic tires.

    So which is it and what does it have to do with failing dex checks and being fatigued?

    /signed for the most part:

    5.) I think trapped boxes still work? Just have to lockpick them first, then drop em.. i think..
    13.) Like that one a lot. Seriosly if i sent some old friends a pic of "Here lies Flaw, he was a n00b" They would re-activate instantly =)
    14.) Hmm, good idea, but isnt that werewolfs?
    18/19/22.) Agree. NPCs need to be addressed.. or at least some loot put on them.
    38.) Yess. Need to bring back the old bounty system too. I seriously doubt ANYONE has a problem with gore from chopping corpses to get the heads... but again that was the reason for the nerf.
    44.) Aye, maybe make it a cooking tool of sorts.
    47.) Most def.

    Not for this idea. Vets shouldn't quit at all!
    Vets are people who love UO so much that they ARE part of the game.
    If Gravesites is overcrowded with vets, it indicate a negative sign for UO.
    So if you walk past by the gravesite everyday and you see 1 added each day, you will feel like "Oh.. there goes another 1.."
