    Greetings Everyone,

    We are still working hard on getting our publish finished. Next week we will be putting out a Publish and Patch to TC1. Due to an outstanding migration issue you may experience some cliloc errors, these will be fixed before we go world wide. You will be able to check out the following:

    Completed Systems:

    Global Loot
    Clean up Britannia additions
    Traders Quest

    Systems still in progress:

    Vice vs Virtue - Players will see this on TC1
    New UI

    In progress for 86
    17th Anniversary Items!! (of course I am going to be evil and not tell you)

    I do want to address one issue that has come up though. If you reforge or alter an Event Moderator item in any way it may change the name of said item. We will not change it back.! So please know this before you start reforging items.


    Thanks Everyone!

    Mesanna

    Sorry, but that's just garbage lol. Item damaged due to bug, but you won't be helped if it does break. Nice. Support for this game is seriously lame.

    No, item damaged due to the actions of a player. Not a bug.
    If I damage my car by putting the wrong fuel in it would you class that as a 'bug' too?

    Makes sense to me. If you reforge or alter an item - it is no longer the same item.

    No, but how would you like it if you were then told no-one's gonna fix it for you and you have to essentially scrap your car? Furthermore, it's now impossible to fit an incorrect nozzle into some modern cars these days. It's called improving the user experience where possible for the best experience rather than just blaming the user and calling it a day. If something can be improved, it should be. Blaming the user, even if justified, is a cop out. One should always be receptive to making improvements even if it constitutes having to protect the user from themselves. :p

    My point is, there should be sufficient server-side logs which allow GMs to assist players with reverting items if something happens to them. Or they shouldn't be adjustable in the first place to prevent it happening. I wouldn't say it was obvious that an item lost its name if it were reforged personally. It would also help in many other situations too.

    Kinda nice to see. I'd rather them get the completed systems published to all shards early than have to wait on VvV and the new UI and anniversary items (which we're 2 months out anyway) but oh well.

    My thought process was more along the lines of: "Do I need to get the items for my player event NOW or can I wait a bit?"

    But point taken.

    Price of gold has been collapsing with vast stores being flooded onto the market from leaving players. From the looks of it, some of these players were key stakeholder with 10-20+ accounts each. Are we entering the final stretch for this game? By all accounts, it appears Broadsword is more focused on DAoC sooo....

    DAoC is a pretty cool game, it wouldn't be the end of the world to go back to it.

    is it vice vrs virtue or virtue vrs vice?

    Please make this a success. Honestly im nervous to see it on test center just in case it turns out to be horrible becuase its the only thing on the table currently to attempt to save the games integrity.

    do you agree that things like this should be posted somewhere tho (no i dont mean stratics) a red warning in the reforge gump would make sense. Most players wouldnt realize that reforging something would change the name.

    btw things were left out. not just reforging, but also enhancing reverts item name to base. like when you enhance an orc chieftan helm with barbed its just "orc helm"
    I dont see how casual players would know this, and the majority of UO players are casual.

    That being said, i like that theres an element of risk with UO still. a bit of unknown. you could find a feature and make billions before its changed, or try something else and ruin a good item. Both ways youll find no influence from GMs the majority of the time.

    I saw it said better on another forum, but you can't blame the player for the mistake when you've outsourced all game manual type information to 3rd party fan sites such as Stratics and UOGuide.

    It is common sense to me. You had an item. You decided to change that item. You no longer have the item that you had. How is this the Dev's fault? How would you expect someone to fix it at that point? You changed it. It was an item with a special name or color, etc. Now it is an item with special properties that you added. It's one or the other... do you really expect to have your cake and eat it too?

    Doesn't anyone in power realize, not everyone who plays, reads UHall? And lots of people no longer pay attention to the login splash, since we got so used to it being months out of date at a time.

    Why not just make it where the system wont reforge said items, or they cannot be altered. There are lots of things ingame that I get that message for. Otherwise , at least put in a warning gump for the ones who play and dont sift thru pages of posts to find the information, and usually it's too late by then.

    Nice update... just lacking one tiny thing IMO. Still, steps forward and kudos to the Team for that.

    As for the event item reforge thing, I would say THAT IS YOUR WARNING.

    Besides, I thought collectors already knew that tings are better in their original condition :p

    Nope. I think the dev team has become way too comfortable in it's cocoon here.

    That would be too simple of a solution.

    Now that i think about it, the refoging thing is wrong, misleading at least.

    mASK.png

    Items DO NOT lose title with a basic reforge
    they DO lose title / revert to base item title if you add prefix/suffix reforge

    so if you want to keep your event item name, you can still reforge, just cant choose the properties as well. have to do totally random.

    i dont see how anyone could argue that this would be intuitive knowledge to a casual player

    many collectors, including myself, like to imbue or reforge lower end event items. its a shame that some event items now are unable to be imbued, as they would be nice items to use.

    ...

    The wording states "reforge or alter", nothing about imbuing, I'm guessing because the other two re-rolls mods? Not sure, I've played only with imbuing, not the other two systems. So I'm guessing that imbuing might be safe.

    I'm not sure what it is you are referring to? We'd rather release VvV for people to try out sooner than later. Removing factions will come with a later update to TC1.

    Thank you for the communication! Can't mention enough how important that is and how much it is appreciated.

    Please consider feedback as well. Remember we love the game too!

    @Mesanna I was wondering if perhaps we could hear about how the update is coming along with the higher resolution? Still working on it?

    What about a solution with the bug of items losing their ID's? Im not asking about to fix it right now, but at least a solution with those items that already have the bug ( i still have around 200+ items i cant sell from europa rares fest ....).

    What about sorting out the account management?? I see so many posts complaining about this you would of think this would be a top priority. After all its what brings in the $$$ or in most cases people want to pay but aren't able to.

    "Fix account management? - nah, lets make a traders quest instead"

    not fair. The dev team can only do what is within their power to do. Account management has always been a seperate entity to game development.

    I haven't actually done that - in fact the only person of my acquaintance that has, is male.

    Besides, that was only a hypothetical example.

    Greetings Everyone,

    We are still working hard on getting our publish finished. Next week we will be putting out a Publish and Patch to TC1. Due to an outstanding migration issue you may experience some cliloc errors, these will be fixed before we go world wide. You will be able to check out the following:

    Completed Systems:

    Global Loot
    Clean up Britannia additions
    Traders Quest

    Systems still in progress:

    Vice vs Virtue - Players will see this on TC1
    New UI

    In progress for 86
    17th Anniversary Items!! (of course I am going to be evil and not tell you)

    I do want to address one issue that has come up though. If you reforge or alter an Event Moderator item in any way it may change the name of said item. We will not change it back.! So please know this before you start reforging items

    Thanks!

    Mesanna
