Was just wondering when next patch is going to come out on test center?

    haven't heard from the devs in a while and just trying to figure out what plans they have in mind for the next patch and when they may be uploading them to the test center?

    This is a fine question. Would like some info as to what the CLOSE upcoming plans are for TC. None of this "soon" stuff.

    I keep my fingers crossed for vendor search.
    High res art would be cool, but I highly doubt, that this will happen this year...

    So yeah, give us a Pub82 sneak peek...

    because we all know that coding before getting the opinion of the player base is what it's all about. Sounds like the perfect idea there for an epic fail.... Go ahead and implement and code something without letting the players know before hand what the ideas were, let alone getting the opinions from the players before doing it (assuming since we are the ones that are paying to play that our opinion somewhat matters).

    After the Pub 81 debacle, they should be in here asking us "What if DCI could get up to 90? Would that be ********?" (or rather, whatever the equivalent question will be for Pub 82) months in advance.

    Renaming a dead horse does not make it new fun stomp party. About to started filling third container of refinements hoping for a third invul grade not scale or stone. Plenty to do in the game. Really has anyone yet to complete a val hammer 20x val plate BOD large without buying or bribing for the BODs? Try getting a set of paragon rare ore eli chest of proper color to eli type. Be the first to have a set, ring and bracelet, of moonstone jewelry imbued and blessed. Finding goals and completing them is the key to enjoying UO. Shiney and new just means more post about getting more storage or stable space.

    Obviously the next system will be refining weapons and jewelry to add to your HCI cap. It will be +15 on each and allow you to reach a 90 HCI cap. The intent is to make HLA more important.

    I'm outside most of the time, but what has UO had this year? The bug fix publish and the refinements mess. Is that it? In half a year?

    What we know for sure is that the next Publish will neither come fast enough to satisfy those who think nothing is being done nor slow enough satisfy those who think things are thrown out untried and untested.

    I take what I can get at this point. Hopefully the present limited resources that exist go into things that the player base is actually calling for rather than the trainwreck that is refinements.

    We also got an election system that as many as nine or ten people per shard will get to do anything with. Once it stops being broken.

    That was part of Publish 81. I checked the Skara Brae stone on my shard. There's one person running.

    Sounds about right. Code is done. Just need new properties and targeting of the code. That will just lead deeper down the road "we can't make it stack" excuse. Really if the little light doesn't go on by now that something new should stack or not. Just put a decay timer on new things like refinement to avoid hoarding and high pricing. Varnish and Waxes are put on in coats. Instead of grades. Should of had a RNG for the grade of refinement once applied. Never reducing the last applied refinement coat by a weaker grade refinement produced by the RNG. Instead of containers of different grades of refinement for different armor. Players would make sets of armor. They would keep appling refinements to their armor sets till each piece maxed. "It rubs it's oil on it's leather bustier...... *leather stiffens* Swweeeeett."
