    Greetings,

    We will push Publish 72.0 to all shards during the next maintenance cycle. Here are the complete Publish Notes for your reading pleasure, thanks!



    Publish 72.0.0



    Clean Up Britannia

    We are proud to announce the return of Clean Up Britannia!

    Similar to the original Clean Up Britannia and subsequent Spring Cleaning events, you may now discard your unneeded items in exchange for points good for the purchase of interesting and powerful new items. Here’s how it works:

    • Use a trash can, either in public or in your house, to discard items. When the items are destroyed, you are awarded points.
    • You may appraise items before throwing them out. Select “Appraise For Cleanup” from a trash can’s context menu, and target items to appraise them.
    • Speak to a Cleanup Officer in New Magincia, Britain, New Haven, Ter Mur, or Buccaneer’s Den to see how many points you have, and spend those points
    Things you can Turn In

    • All items which could be turned in for Spring Cleaning in 2008 may now be turned in for Clean Up Britannia
      • Many older and rarer items are now worth a lot more points!
      • Any leftover points for Spring Cleaning 2008 convert to points for Clean Up Britannia
    • Many new items can now be turned in for points:
      • Almost any item crafted from wood, leather, or metal (the rarer the material used to craft the item, the more points it’s worth)
      • Almost any equipment loot drop (stronger magical item properties increase their point value)
      • Gold and Bank Checks
      • Raw resources such as leather, wood, and ingots (the rarer the resource, the more points it is worth)
    Things you can Buy

    • Most of the items from Spring Cleaning 2008 are available in Clean Up Britannia
      • The high-end item sets are available as replicas. These knock-offs are much cheaper in point cost, but have 125 durability and cannot be improved by Powder of Fortification.
    • New Imbuable Item Sets are available:
      • Berserker’s Gear: the wearer gains a special berserk combat effect when at low health
      • Fisherman’s Gear: wearing these items enhances the effectiveness of any fish bait used by the wearer
      • Virtuoso’s Gear: these items improve a bard’s Mastery Bonus
    • Various new decorative and equipment items are available for sale

    Honesty Virtue

    As you travel the lands of Trammel and Felucca, you may find lost items. These items will say “Lost Item (Return To Gain Honesty)” when you mouse-over them. These items are never in dungeons or in guard zones.

    To turn in a lost item for Honesty credit: In a bank of each of the Virtue Towns (Britain, Yew, Moonglow, Trinsic, Skara Brae, New Magincia, Jehlom, and Minoc) there is a lost and found box. Put the item in the box for Honesty credit. You may use Forensic Evaluation skill to gain more information about the owner of the item. If you turn the item into the Lost And Found Box in the city where the owner lives, you will get double Honesty points for your extra effort. If you give the item to the original owner, you will get quadruple honesty points. It is perfectly acceptable to let a friend discover the owner for you.


    Honesty gives you discounts at NPC merchants. The higher your rank in Honesty, the bigger your discount. The discount is applied to the total purchase. The discount is not shown in the merchant window, but you will see a system message once you make the purchase.

    Other Virtue System tweaks:
    The total virtue point cap has been increased so that it is easier to maintain Knight rank.
    All virtues now decay at the same rate as the current rate for Valor. (This is a significant decrease in decay rate for most virtues.)
    Skills that had their decay rate reduced now spend virtue when you use them.



    Anniversary Gifts

    Happy 14th Anniversary to all our players! This year we have done something a little different. We have a few new items and included last years items for anyone that may of missed them. Hope you enjoy this token of appreciate for all your years of dedication to UO. As always you have to be 30 days old to receive an anniversary gift. The gifts will stay active until October 31st.



    Guild Voting Changes

    Added functionality to resolve guild hierarchy issues when a guild has no active (characters that have logged in within the last 30 days) voting members. When a guild has no active voting members (Guild Leader, Warlords, Emissaries or Members) and only has active non-voting members (Ronins) the system will now hold a special election which will promote the guild member (Ronin) that was most recently active to become the guild master. If the system is unable to identify the most recently active member, it will randomly select an active guild member (Ronin) to promote. This special election will ONLY occur when there are no active voting guild members.



    Halloween

    This year’s Halloween Event will begin October 1st thru November 12th. We have added a special treat for you this year so keep your guard up. *evil grin*



    Bug Fixes

    • Converting stoneboots to Gargoyle stone Talons will no longer give a TID error.
    • You can no longer use the Sacred Journey ability to recall away to your ship when you’re flagged.
    • The amount of ingots were corrected to be the same when salvaging in a bag or by the smith hammer.
    • You can now salvage deer mask, bear mask, and tribal masks via the salvage bag.
    • Gargoyle alterations should now recognize the small soul forge.
    • Your poison skill will affect the poison strength applied to Shurikens and Fukiya Darts.
    • Grape vines fished up from MIB’s will produce grape bunches (this does not apply to the ones already fished up). Non functional grape vines previously fished up can be traded in for functional items at the Ye Olde Winery in Yew.
    • Fixed an issue with pets disappearing from the warehouse NPC in Magincia.
    • When the Bestial Set is activated it will reduce the HP regeneration and healing.

    Classic client 7.0.17

    • Cliloc Changes

    Enhanced Client 4.0.17

    • Cliloc Changes
    • Players are no longer able to filter out GM reponses
    • Updated the Enhanced Client default target type for several mysticism spells

    More...

    YAY!

    Yeah get that forensics up! It helps alot when ID'ing lost items.

    30% Discount on NPC items is pretty big if you buy in bulk alot. It's not been THAT hard to get the first path.

    This note was not in the original TC release of the publish.

    what about suits already claimed and is it a nerf or was that how it worked before just wasn't spelled out ?

    I wouldn't doubt that it got nefed with a few peeps crying about it (seems like all it takes is 1 or 2 ) I wouldnt know if it was over powered but must seemed to feel it wasn't. :(

    I missed this before:

    The amount of ingots were corrected to be the same when salvaging in a bag or by the smith hammer.

    was the amount changed to smith hammer values or salvage bag values? IIRC the salvage bag intentionally gave a bonus.

    good point it was supposed to give a bonus (maybe they forgot) (maybe they didn't no) (maybe nvm) :lol:

    Did that note come before or after folks tested the Beast set and it was found to be over-powering?

    If after, cool, where did you find it? That would indeed sound like an attempt at a fix, because from what I read the issue was the combination of the suit and ninja dog form.

    If before, then I think the idea was that even though it reduced healing and HP Regen, it was still over powering.....

    I haven't tested it but have no reason to disbelieve the folks who did test it. Lynk in particular disbelieved it, then tested, and believed.

    Normally when something is alleged to be over-powered there's a counter-argument. If there was a counter-argument besides "get one yourself," I missed it. (Apologies if there was.)

    Okay since I transferred my crafter to ATL I made 2 chain mail tunics, smelted one and Salvaged the other.

    Smelting yielded 13 ingots, salvaging yielded 14 ingots

    Then I want on to TC and did the same..both results yielded me 13 ingots....

    So I would say the change was made to smelting values and not salvage bag values.

    I can't believe I didn't notice until now that we'd be able to do the dumping from our houses.

    I think I may miss the idea of going to a central place to do the dumping.

    But oh well. If I cared that much I guess I'd have noticed it before!

    Will we have to go someplace to get the items?

    that fix is wrong, they removed the capability to filter the SYSTEM messages.
    That's why I remade the chat system :/

    Sometimes I imagine the devs using a hammer to fix things instead of a keyboard :D

    Like I always say, the devs don't play their own game. There is now no reason to have a salvage bag anymore.

    ...

    Lack of a LOT of clicking (well unless you're using an external third party program) would be the main reason to use a salvage bag.

    Oh yeah I'd kill someone without my salvage bag.

    Smelt item "target" click
    Smelt item "target" click

    Oddly enough, I have to be up at server up. I have an early flight to catch.

    Yes, I am a bit put off I have to find out if the game I play is gonna be ruined or changed in a way it will likely never recover from. In my opinion anyway...

    I would have really appreciated a heads up one way or the other. I really dislike most surprizes... especially when they suck.

    guys i think the first line of the publish says it all to be published on ALL SHARDS idk that pretty much answers it for me


    but ya know what this is the first step next is the needed insurance because of the inbalance these blessed deeds will bring then you will see our lovely shard multiply in numbers 10-20 times over wont that be awesome

    Let me just use these words I could not have said better I took from anther thread

    "and it would also make people quit. I doubt it would even draw that many people away from regular shards, since most people seem to state housing, skill gain and character restrictions as reason they don't play here."


    Siege is Siege blessed deeds and Ins are NOT Siege

    14th tickets are now on Europa and Drach, but Clean Up Britannia is still inactive, so don't expect it anytime soon on other shards :(

    I wonder what's going on AGAIN...

    They did the same thing on Origin when they first published, I guess the 2 aren't related and they had to turn on clean-up. Supreem came on and said he was taking the shard back down to turn it on.

    Lets see what happens

    How do you know Honesty is not working?

    Sometimes you really gotta look for the lost items...best places I've found them are around New Mag gate and along the water in Moonglow and Fire Island in fel and tram.


    I'm gonna go look here in a few

    I didnt see an answer to your q.
    There are several npc's around west bank brit labeled "unemployed". This will change with the patch. These same npc's are in 4 or 5 spots around the globe. usually 3 or 4 per spot.
    We'll see what changes come in when it all goes live. Cheers..........

    In what context? Need a bit more information rather than attitude please!

    Was you stealing from a player, a NPC, a Monster or something like a doom stealable? Were you in Fel/Tram/Malas/Tokuno/Abyss. Are you a member of the Thiefs guild and what is your stealing at? Also are you blue or red?

    I find it somewhat funny that I found a lost item just a dual pointed spear nothing special but I can gain 2 points for clean up by chucking it away or I gain a tiny bit of honesty for returning it.

    Anyone know where you return it if you don't know who it belongs to?

    If you don't have forensics you can turn it into any lost and found box at the bank, small wooden box VERY tiny.

    Can anyone tell me, if you dispose a bag of items, do you get credit for the contents? Or, do you need to dispose each item individually??

    Thanks!
