    Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

    The only one that matters. Are they dropping everything else and drastically revamping the graphics in the EC?
     
  4. If thats what ya want to go with ... *shrugs*
    I fear it is a bit "deep" for that side of the HOC though ...
    (The correct answer, as ever: Each to his own if he can reach it. nipso )

    I'll toss one out:
    May the players have a "direct contact" e-mail/icq/tweet/im/something
    for when a server goes "!poof!" ?

    (better question And answerable by DEVS):danceb:
     
  5. I'll give ya quick and firm no.
    but possibly it'll make it through polling.

    ...

    1. A mention of high resolution artwork was made in the (short) video, is there any update on that or plans we can be made aware of?

    2. Can the graphic for Hatchet be changed? They use the same one as Battle Axes.

    3. What about long standing bugs in the EC, do we have an update on some of those? Examples: "You cannot pick that up" when moving items; During melee combat, the character tends to "jump" a tile randomly and occasionally. This is not a lack of client-server synch as the mobs involved also move when this happens to accomodate.
     
  8. :scholar: not in the form of a question ... and incorrect re: answer.
    ("an answer" ... doesn't mean: correct ... you are guessing and or plagiarizing others efforts. tsk tsk)

    Spring cleaning.....

    Any idea on what we can turn in.
    Can we turn in the current piece sets from black rock golems for the pieces we want (gargoyle for human)
    Any idea on point values....similar to 2008?
    When can we expect it
     
  11. I'll give ya quick and firm no.
    (leastwise this year ... the NewNew haven thang will likely be the focus ...)
    *shrugs*
    worth a shot ... adds to Dermott of LS*3

    covert? would a larger question be "better"? like ... loot tables and ... spawner points? Or are you directly limiting to "dungeons & use"?

    Dermott of LS? also a "suggestion" ...How about them making an "insider" available for consulting re: all things EC? ... weekly/twice a month a FoF style reply to the forum?

    - Naked bug of other Players
    - Lagging of other Players
    - Sound Bugs ( you cant hear a spell sound when you are higher than the caster )
     
  13. Okay ... likely to be the largest "turn in list" to date ...
    possibly they have thought of a "neutral weighting system"(possibly)

    added
    likely to be covered in their prepared blurb ..., guestimate on next publish time.

    2. Can we work on getting towns populated again? Give incentives?

    NewNew haven will be that answer(yes, full steam and attention on attracting new players ... but NOT gonna beg/bribe/PAY them)
    4. Give a Rare Collector title based on...something or another? Lol
    Yes ... will be an easter egg to figure it out though ... an old old OLD easter egg *phew*

    This thread is a clownfest, wish someone more respectable would have started it... or that it would be cleaned up a bit in case the devs do read it.

    Anyways, questions:

    Arenas, when can we expect testing to begin on test center?
    Factions, can they be condensed down to 2? Can the system as a whole be reevaluated and redone if there is enough interest?

    A person who has never played uo comes across uogamecodes, and they want to play how are they going to purchase Stygian Abyss New Account Code? when they need a valid user name and password.

    To sort of harp on your question Lady Michelle:

    Can we expect a revamp of the gamecode website to a more navigable design?
     
  19. wow! really?
    New ACCOUNT

    BOTH are listed (new account/upgrade) ...
    and (personally) I would be too embarassed to direct them to the EAstore(below)
    How about asking for an in house address for the person/persons Responsible for external websites?
    Herald, Gamecodes ...? TO REPORT THE FOULUP

    I am sorry ... not really an answerable question ... I'm sure if asked they WILL talk about it, later ... but ...
    not a good chance the asker will ask it ... okay?

    congrats on the contest ... but ... no ... not a question.
    AGREED! UOGamecodes does ask for username password ...
    and the EA site does offer it ...

    just saying ...wow! that is not a question but a Disaster!:(

    More navigable ??

    Quite a lot of players are unable to purchase from that web site, period !!!!

    Which is most incredible considering that for some players who pay their UO subscriptiions with their credit card the UOGamecodes web site does not accept payments from that same credit card (gives some error)....

    So, the exact same credit card that is good to regularly pay for UO subscription is then not good to pay for codes for the game ???

    Hallo ???
     
  22. see what "rushing your submit" causes? ...
    you forgot to "question" :lol:

    40 gold quatloo that Petra brings a good one.
     
  23. not an answerable question :gee:

    What is the HOC ? Sounds like someone who just struck ethylic coma...

    *hic*

    *hic*

    *hoc*...

    Why I have not yet been able to upgrade to SA... ?

    why are my e-mails to EA being ignored and cal won't answer my PMs ? Why everytime I try to phone I end up having to wait for 30 minutes and get someone that tells me this will be better fixed by e-mail or the support website, because they don't know much about UO ? Why when following a total loss of time inquiry on the phone I get back to the support site to get no answer ?

    Oh wait maybe I know the answer to why Cal is ignoring me, but part of it still remains !

    WHY WONT YOU TAKE MY MONEY !!!? :rant2:

    I hope people don't get there hopes up on this, I'm still sure it was simply a compliment for EC (The ground textures etc).

    I'd love to be wrong though. *wink*

    1. Can we have the gargoyle robe (paperdoll) artwork finished on EC? (actually is colored shape put in front of the character, looks like made in Paint :p )
    2. Can we have the "PlaySound" function to the UI code/script commands? (this could have lot of uses on custom UI)

    It is actually my fear that people will be more interested in the pixel crack they can get from the spring cleaning thing than things like the actual future of UO.

    Are Luck Blades/Adventure's Machette ever going to be fixed? Currently, when you craft one of these items (they have an innate +20 luck bonus) and roll the luck property, the innate +20 luck is dropped. I've sent in a couple of bug reports on this.

    1.) Will the spring cleaning reward creation keep in mind we can make most thing better than the last via imbuing and not give the same rewards they did the last time?

    2.) Will there be EC only content to draw those of us who won't switch without incentive to the EC?

    3.) Knowing the conditions on the ground in felucca on most shards will the rebuilding of Magincia take into account both facets? That is if "evil" decides not to rebuild in fel and they do in tram will the result be different or will it be shared?

    4.) Will vet players have access to the new player area to help players along or will the new player have to leave that area first?

    5.) Woodchucks. How much?

    Has there been any thought to offering UO as a Free-To-Play game, and if so, what if anything has been decided?

    My question will naturally be about Siege. And now that the classic shard idea is scraped, will that mean they will never devote time/resoucres to Siege Perilous?

    I hope to ask the question but I know it probably won't be chosen. Just a hunch :(

    A couple questions

    Are factions still being looked at?

    Can we have a faction point wipe as points are all messed up with some shards in the billions?

    I really like this idea!
    anything to do with the EC is a plus for me!

    also a option to only play the custom sounds would be cool !

    What do you guys plan on doing on Siege, stop telling us people are just stealthing because they are not it's dead.. do something about it. Allow housing or start allowing npc vendors to buy and sell stuff or something, anything, you have been ignoring for so long, I bet Siege won't even come up on this chat thing.

    The NPC vendors buying and selling isn't an issue. Never been for me. But housing is definitely an issue. If some sort of solution that allows people to have second homes but not permanent second homes would suit me. I don't want to see the shard clogged up with permanent homes of people who played a month, but i do want to see a busier shard for those interested in playing a different style of game.

    Not that the style of Siege is that different, so I don't accept that "its to difficult coding".

    They just don't want to spend time on Siege :/

    Limit it 7x7 maybe? Otherwise people would just put down a big foundation and have something automated refresh it in hopes of selling it.

    You've just put Siege on the road to definite ruin if NPCs could buy back from players.

    The housing thing is interesting, but could be abused.

    I'd love to be allocated a specific amount of plot tiles and you could place them how you wanted.

    It really stinks to have to completely abandon one server to play on another.

    What is being done about the renowned creatures spawning in inaccessible locations IE flying creatures that get stuck, rats that spawn where they cannot be attacked, devourer that spawns in lava, goblins that spawn in the water, Navery that spawns in the water etc.. There is alot of times creatures spawn and cannot be killed, and paging a Game master sends a reply in the corner orange button message stating that items cannot be replaced, instead of simply moving the creatures, or *gasp* make these particular spots non spawn points, curious about certain spots? Visit some of the listed ones at server down roughly and see for yourself the spawn that builds up that is inaccessible.



    *edited part* not sure what language fahyled speaks or why they refer to a quataloo, as it is a troll in my eyes, the psycho babble that particular poster spouts about other things that do not refer to a specific topic and the use of the smiles/broccoli. this person needs to get professional help and should NOT be starting threads for questions asking or directed to the development team, had i went with my instinct and put them on block i would not have seen this thread and possibly would have received a warning for opening a new thread

    I don't think it would be abused, second home housing 'needing refreshing etc', on Siege. I don't expect a huge influx of people, and even if we did, there is soooooo much space.

    Malas is virtually all empty except for a the obvious areas. The market is also pretty stable.

    Oh well. I'll be here till they pull the plug lol.
