    [size=+1]Test Center 1 Update - 12/08/10[/size]

    Greetings,

    The following changes will be going live to Test Center 1 shortly, thanks for your feedback!

    Abandon Ship
    • Harbormasters now have a context menu option that allows you to abandon your current ship.
    • Abandoning your ship will cause the ship to decay within 5 minutes if there are no players on the ship.
    • Once your ship has decayed you will be able to place a new one.
    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed issue where fishmonger reputation could go below zero
    • Corrected the resource production rate on the new veteran reward to once a week
    • Players can no longer use ward removal from talismans on themselves to bypass the magic reflect cooldown timer.
    • Increased community collection points for crabs and lobster from 1 to 10 each
    • Reintroduced the requirement that you be a friend of the house or better before you are allowed to drop items into locked down containers.

    Reading this almost makes me believe that the devs are reading the posts and actually paying attention.

    I get excited thinking this might be true:)

    This is good.... I like fixing bugs before production.

    Thank you for paying attention and raising the points on Crabs and Lobsters... and thank you VERY much for reversing that allowance for anyone to dump junk in my house.

    Just want to say a quick thank you for this.

    To be honest I like the idea of making any container function like a mailbox, I'd just rather have the option to set it myself (perhaps add something like "toggle accept donations" to a container's context menu in the future?).

    If the devs are on a container revamp, I have a couple of suggestions as well.

    1) Give a range of accesses for guilds - members, ronins, emissaries.

    2) Let me access our alliance guilds to stuff in our guild house, without having to friend them.

    Yes! We have needed an "Alliance" option to go with the "Guild" setting on containers for long time now!

    We need the other guild settings as well. Means we have another layer we can work folks into.

    Wow, I'm impressed devs. This is the first time in my 8+ years of playing UO that I've seen an update to up publish that tweaked the system while it's live on TC!

    Now delete the Boura and all of the people that think that UO is Star Wars and we can pave the way for a better 13th year vet reward.....


    Maybe a ridable drake?

    Thank you!

    Yes, please. The Golden Brew's list of allied guilds multiplies exponentially and it would be nice not to have to friend each one for them to get into the liquor cabinet. Thanks!

    Very nice changes.

    Whats the point of "Abandon Ship"? Why not just simply redeed the ship.

    Ideally two options: Redeed Ship, Abandon Ship would be ideal.

    If you need to abandon your ship it's likely you've lost it, Or lost the key to it (If it's an old school one) and you might have stuff in the hold.

    I'm not sure if redeeding the ship would work with stuff in the hold.
