    Greetings,

    Publish 69.5 is now available on Test Center 1. You can find the publish notes below, we encourage you to check out what's new and thank you for your feedback, have fun!

    Publish 69.5

    Addition to the Community collections

    We have added the new Ship to the items you can earn in Community Collections. Please see the fisherman NPC in the library in Britain.

    Bug Fixes


    • Britannian Defenders will no longer sound like females
    • Netherbolt/Eagle Strike/Bombard will no longer cause their target to double fizzle.
    • Fixed an issue with hair dyes, when the hue of your hair is the same as the hue of the hair dye, it will no longer be consumed .
    • Added an additional smaller version of the Vet Reward Rugs. In the gump you will be able to choose the size and facing.
    • Fixed Spell Plague trigger on non-spell damage. Spell plague should no longer be triggered from damage from specials like poison, concussion or bleed. Should only trigger on actual spells or hit spell effects from weapons.
    • Ghost images of player’s houses have been fixed for going to each facet but we are still working on an issue with transferring from shard to shard.
    • Corrected the issue with newly created white leather dye tubs behaving as if they were vet rewards.
    • Added items the metal dye tub can dye: metal chests, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces
    • Added pedestals and a Bell of Courage to each town that is/was invaded. You can look at the pedestal and bell’s hue to see the status of the town.
    • Boats that are navigating by maps using plotted courses will now be able to travel in all 8 directions.

    The mysticism fix people were wanting?

    the metal dye tub fixed

    the sailing by map fixed.

    Those will do nicely I think?

    Depending on what they managed to break in its place this time. Hopefully it is released soon so that I can actually play UO once again.

    well, if people test it and find out what broke, maybe we can get if fixed quickly, and then the publish can be released quickly.

    btw, in case anyone is interested, the boat.

    yes of course. I did it in that one to fit it all in.
    Here you go.

    No, it doesn't count as a house. It is a boat, with 9 cannon placements and a hold capacity of 125 item, 28,000 stones.

    Well remember, Queen Dawn said it was being designed in order to restore Britannian dominance over the seas, in preparation for "the inevitable siege of Magincia."

    So it had better be big, hard to sink, and carry a good amount of firepower.

    Maybe we'll have to kill Virtuebane with cannon fire, or ram a few ships into his belly like in The Little Mermaid (Disney version).

    For some reason, this:

    YouTube - Battlestar Galactica Theme 1978 - 1979

    popped into my head immediately when I saw that ship.

    I guess that means I like it?

    Osiredon looks suitably Cthuloid, and oddly enough in the original 'Call of Cthulhu' story someone ends up trying to get rid of Cthulhu by ramming him with a boat.... only gets a temporary respite though, long enough for them to run away while he recovers ;)

    yes, is HUGE, takes 2 screen and have 2 slot for forge/anvil or 1 tile deed thing like small soulforge :)

    the hold has 28k stones of space :)

    I still need to discover:

    - how many hits you need to take it down
    - if has any damage bonus (like orc ship)
    - if has any bonus with fishing

    Yeah, you'd think they'd give us this rather important information so we can, ya know, do their free QA testing for them...

    New ship looks tight as hell ... even though I think it's way too big and will cause problems, rofl. Very hot.

    Glad to see Mystic double-attack bug fixed, the Vet Reward Rug crop we were promised and the ability to change face.

    How about Magic Reflect spell working against Hit Spell, then? I mean come on.

    I know I should just test it, but do glasses work?

    Very cool. Glad to be proved wrong about thinking Devs wouldn't do anything with current invasion status.

    YAYYYYYYYYYYY I may go fishing again now ;P

    May be the best patch/pub note evarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Bwhahaha....

    Whattttttttttttttttttttt well I prefer rowboats, lol

    Anyone want to go on a rowboat race? :O

    R O F L you using a browser that supports images? ;P
     
  28. Great publish.

    Thanks for listening to the players on the mysticism stuff--both the spell plague and the double disrupt.

    Not buying the fat boat. I dont see how it's so special, regardless of the price.

    So how about adding these features:
    - Pirates, upon seeing the gigantic boat, will become frightened and may not attack you (and all damage type reduced by 50%, skills reduced by 30%..etc)
    - acts like a house (no need to refresh, only decay if account is inactive)
    - tillerman can play music (control via menu)
    - cannons can auto fire/attack (somehow)
    - might as well put vendors in it!!
    - better yet, increase storage number to....like a house! lockdowns..etc. Boat house yay.

    I am glad they are addressing the metal dye tub issues with jewelry. It will be nice to match my pendants and bracelets. Why weren't rings included in this list? I think they should be so we can make our accent pieces match.

    I like these ideas, but not the damage reduction part. The refresh would be great cause many times we forget to hop on the dang thing parked outside the house.
    Music playing tillerman sounds awesome! But if we're able to lock down the Dawn's Music box, then this might be moot.
    Traveling vendor ship, lol! Bring your vendors to the peoples!

    Why exactly....I mean 1million crab is annoying, aside from that would be easier to buy the crab than fish em up. ;p

    And if your concern has anything to do with the boats being sold in game, well they are non-transferable, at all.

    would you be willing to share your reasons for this?

    I had planned to donate crabs, lobsters, fish steaks and gold from mib chests.

    Given that these are account bound, so no one can just buy multiples of them and sell them for cash. Why do you feel I should not be able to donate my mib gold?

    That's incorrect, they can sell them for cash. They just sell you the gold.

    And that's why.

    I see.

    I do not agree with your reasons.

    No one will sell me any gold, because I do not buy gold - ever.

    I never have and never will buy any gold either. Before HS it was easy to get fish steaks and trade them in. Nowadays iam not cutting up any fish cause i might need them for my next quest^^.

    Some day i will have the big boat. Why, i dunno ... If we could place a trash barrel next to the small soul forge ... then it would be a nice boat for a fisher. ;)

    That would be fantastic, I'd also love to lock say 20 items onto the deck, No containers obviously. But like a chair or some deco.

    The fish I'm cutting up are the old style 'big fish', I don't want them for trophies, and while they don't represent a very big contribution to the cost, every little helps.

    I just don't see why I should be prevented from donating gold I have legitimately acquired through my own efforts because someone with less patience/time/application may choose to take the 'throw cash at it' route.

    That's fine for you.

    But I am looking at it from a big picture perspective rather than an individual perspective.

    Or put a limit on how much gold you can donate (towards the boat).

    While EA/Mythic may have done somethings against scripting/duping, they have done nothing about the billions of gold and billions of resources that they have collected/created.

    It's like, they and most everyone else has chosen to ignore that fact. But, it has to be taken into account when doing something like this.

    The question is: WHO CARES?

    This ship gives no advantages, is like to wish a limit on the amount of dogs that you can tame in a day....
    This ship could be bought instantly, but after few weeks will be forgotten, because is just an expensive piece of deco... want to script gold for get it? do it, waste your time who cares? :D

    I agree with petra, if you have extra fish, instead of trash, bring it to the library and one day you could have the big ship just for say: "Hey dude, I'm cool I have a ship bigger than yours with a parrot on it!" and then put it back on the container of the cool useless things :D

    Instead of removing donation gold they can also revise points. Like

    1 point for every 100 gp
    100 points every crab/lobster
    10 points any fish
    5 points fish steaks
    100-1000 points for "recovered" from SOS loot junk
