    Oi! When I posted about this earlier there was NOTHING from the UO Herald feed on the forum - then the feed posts something with a fake time stamp of well over an hour ago....

    This feed is trying to make itself look good by faking the time it reports stuff...

    Nah this is a decent update.. but couldn't it wait until server down? Why the middle of the day for something relatively minor?

    For some reason this post needed Mod approval. I do not know why... So the post was there, just invisible.

  7. I don't understand the issue with the metal dye tubs?
    could someone explain that to me (•Fixed an issue with being able to sell Metal Dye tubs, all tubs have been reverted to their original state.)

    If I understand it right, basically it didn't dye everything metal.

    Oh that issue.

    There's been a long-standing issue where a new dye tub can be modified to dye anything, or at least to dye cloth.

    The metal dye tubs dying cloth effectively killed the rarity of the Halloween cloth.

    Sooner or later, I suppose, they will put in a similar cloth dye tub, but in the meanwhile it makes sense for those who got the Halloween cloth to keep their rare cloth.

    That's probably it. I don't know for sure.

    It's an old old exploit so I shouldn't say what happened if you sell dye tubs to an npc.


    They should have fixed the issue BEFORE they released the metal tubs since it's a KNOWN issue for years.

    Was there anything in this pub which meant that it couldn't wait until a time that wasn't prime time in Europe?

    I get one weekday to play, and tonight was it.

    Bah!

    I was playing on Great Lakes and received a server message a full hour before the shard went down. Not sure what happened on other shards, but since the server went down I decided to check out the UO Herald, and then I found out all the shards were going to go down. Not sure why people are blaming Stratics or EA or whomever, it's all pretty standard stuff.

    I guess you don't like bug fixes. Rather have mysticism be bugged forever, I guess?

    The late posting of important news on UOHerald indeed is nothing new - but just because it's 'standard practice' for EA doesn't make it acceptable though, just because they can get away with it...

    What's odd this time though is the automated feed to Stratics seems to have picked up on the news pretty quickly, but then needed a mod to authorise the post it created about the downtime becoming visible - so the Stratics system sat on the news for another hour or more, until someone realised what was happening and authorised it becoming 'public'.

    Aye... I am not sure what happened either... I do not remember seeing a "moderated" tag on the post when I first saw it, but it is quite possible as I usually scan the forums rather fast.

    Sorry for the confusion Aurelius. :)

    I wonder if the bane invasions finally stopped with this publish. Any reported invasions after the publish went live?

    So when do the limited time sales on Britannian Ships begin in the Game Codes shop? Devs mentioned it in their video. My friends are foaming at the mouth...

    I don't remember hearing in the video feed they were going to sell them via game codes. Did I miss something?

    They put some extra clips up. It was mentioned that it would also be offered for a very limited time.

    They mentioned something about it in a post, but it was not an official statement....and "we" can not be sure they meant this boat, since the boat name is different than the one they mentioned....Don't recall it being in the video though. :)

    It should be now at a price significantly less than the cost to buy the equivalent in gold from a gold seller.

    It isn't in the notes, but you can dye rings now too. At least I successfully dyed a Turquoise Ring on Atlantic last night. You still can't use the metal tub to dye reading glasses, but I'll submit another bug report on that. Hopefully it will make it in a future publish.
