    This thread is intended to be an aid to Developers should they come to help players with their stacking troubles and to help us be able to have better and more efficient storage in the game.

    Please indicate whatever item, to enhance players' playing of Ultima Online, you think should be made stackable OR should have a special container created to assist players for better storage of them (like for example Bulk Order Books are for Bulk Order Deeds.....).

    NOTE. As in regards to the Special Containers listed below, I'd love to see them as craftables, perhaps using multiple skills and only if having acquired the knowledge to craft that individual item by rare, special recipes.


    I will start the list :

    Stackables :

    - Focus Gems/Sashes from latest Ophidians/Bane Event

    - Blackrock Stew

    - Minable Small Blackrock

    - Same type REPAIR Deeds

    - Powder of Fortification

    - Fishing Nets (by color)


    Special Containers :

    - Special Book to hold 500+ Treasure Maps

    - Special Container with filters (like for BODs) "Jewel Case" to hold hundreds of rings/bracelets

    - Special "Seeds Box" container to hold hundreds of seeds. With filters to sort them out as needed.

    - Special "Armoire" container to hold hundreds of weaponry/armor. With filters to sort them out as needed.

    - Special "SoS" container to hold hundreds of SoSes. With filters to sort them out as needed.

    - Special "Alacrity Scrolls" container to hold hundreds of them. With filters to sort them out as needed. This is not needed for Blue Scrolls as they can be binded one another.

    - Rune Books capable of holding more than the current 16. hopefully like 64 (8 pages) if not more.

    - "Cheques' Books" capable of holding multiple checks (up to 500 x 1 million gps cheques ?). The books should display the total amount of gold stored inside so as to use them in trade windows for the other party to verify the correct amount of gold being traded.


    Feel free to add more to the list.

    I would not mind to see it all in a mini-Booster all about getting stacking and storage right for good.

    And if it will also bring an extra 20%-25% storage increase I'd have no problem paying 10/15 bucks for it, but ONLY, if it deals comprehensively with all the items that can be stacked in the game but are currently not and will also bring the new special containers for a variety of items as above listed and more, if needed.

    Especially, if the special containers will be released as craftables, using multiple skills and only if having acquired the knowledge to craft that individual item by rare, special recipes.


    I just want to see all stacking problems and special containers for treasure maps, jewellery, weapons/armors, seeds etc. begone and never worry about them again while playing the game. If the mini-booster will finally make all of the storage problems a thing of the past I'd have no problem spending some money for it.

    I've had enough to go around with 10+ rune books which when I die all pop up in my main pack messing it up. I just want to carry 1 book with all of the relevant runes I can need of for my travels in the game.

    FISH PIES! All fish pies need to be stackable. Their use is limited because of the fact that they aren't stackable.

    While we're on the topic of fish pies, all the FISH PIE INGREDIENTS!
    Mento Seasoning and Samuel's Sauce need to be stackable as well. I mean, the dark truffles already stack so why not have the other ones do the same?

    - Fish Pies need to stack
    - Mento Seasoning and Samuel's Secret Sauce need to stack.

  6. I would love to see all of this....

    except the jewelry thing doesnt make much sense anymore. unless you are still saving a ton of +15 jewels. Imbuing makes 99.9% of jewels from mobs worthless anyway.

    There is only one problem with some of what you ask for stackable or storage wise, is that it only will count on things aquired after the adition of this request. Sooooo anything you have before wont stack ....... found vanilla will now stack but the tons aquired before the adition of the stackability wont....
     
  8. Nothing should stack.
    Cure packratism.

    Bundles of regs, thats about it.

    Well, I would imagine that it could be possible to code routines that turn old items into new, stackable ones.......

    For example, take Messages in a Bottle. When server goes down for maintainance, all former Messages in a Bottle are changed into new Messages in a Bottle which can be stacked.

    When servers come up from maintainance players will have their items anew as stackable ones without even noticing the change......Of course, players will need to then stack them onto each other.....

    Problem solved.

    Things that "should" stack:

    Ant Goo from the fire Ants....

    The big blobs of Acid pools from the nasty little things by the entrance to the Underworld.....

    The ingredients for Chocolateering....

    stalks of Corn

    Banana's from the cornucopia

    Power Crystals (including the focusing Gems)

    Small blackrock.....

    Ancient Pottery Fragments

    The torn pieces of parchment

    Can we increase the size of a stack too to a good 99,999 instead of 60k?

    I'd like to see Powder of Fort work like Baits..... add them together...

    Id love to see this all happen in game, the filtering option would be a dream come true, I have tons of BODs yet i hate to sort so they sit.
    Fishing nets would be nice to stack as well.
