    Oooh first 'poll-ee'.
    Do I get a prize?

    New craftables by the way, I think they'd have the widest benefit to the playerbase.

    My only concern is the number of sticky threads we seem to have at the moment
    But I think the poll is a good idea

    hehe
    *smiles*
    Time to use my experience (in the 'den) for a prediction (from worst to first):

    Revised stats - few people would see any use for these
    Quest generator - not much appeal, strangely
    Revised 8th circle spells - often mis-interpreted as a beg
    Name Change Deeds - only this high because of it's rapid rise to the hall of fame
    Necromancy - disillusionment
    Uses for 'useless' skills - defeated by complaints that they're not
    New craftables - merchants love this
    Themed spawn areas and improved spawn - although this tends not to do well on the 'den, the latest themed spawns here seem to be popular
    More housing space (again) - we probably have a lot of homeless lurkers.

    *decides to become offical bookie for OB's polls....*

  8. Two of those I'd love to see added. New craftables and Changing the spawn.

    <font color=red>The spawning system</font color=red> : I think the new and supposdly dynamic spawn doesnt work. Theres too much at some points yet little or nothing at other I'd think a balance is needed. I'd also like to see more spawn areas make Brittania a little more dangerous plus spread Europa's increasing population out amongst monster areas. All the top areas are always crowded.

    <font color=blue>New Craftables</font color=blue> : I'd love to see new items crafted perhaps (as someone mentioned on the Tailor forum) new skills introuduced like Masonary and what not. Would be fantastic to see and would mean a wider variety of craftables, and house add ons availible. I think new craft skills being introduced would open up a variety of new things.

    people can easily share IPs if on networks, or if their ISP is tight on the money front - they only buy a few, then everyone shares. It's a neat feature of IP/TCP.

    Actually you missed "Volunteer Support" as THE perfect addition to UO.
    Now that would be cool, eh?
    Can you imagine players who devote their time to help players...
    They could have names like "Counselor" or something like that.
    And there could also be players who do quests for us :p
    Those should be called "Seers" or "Elders".
    I think there is even the graphics for those ingame already.
    OSI just needs to add this :D

    (note: I am aware of the fact that the volunteers got sacked a few weeks ago)

    I can't really see the point in name change deeds.

    *smiles warmly* Well Smolf, I used to get a lot of stick from roleplayers about the name Cool UK, which eventually led me to create a 'Kas Valentine' character once I knew name change deed's weren't coming. I've uses for both characters now, but even if those deed's came I'd still change Cool UK to Kas Valentine, because it'd save me training up the exisiting Kas Valentine. S'gonna take forever! Took me the two years I've been playing to get Cool UK to his current level. Gah! *giggles*

    Yours,
    Kas Valentine.

    How about killing two birds with one stone? Combine the new craftables with new uses for "useless skills" For example. . a lot of people have been crying out for the hitching post house add-on that would let them stable their pets at home. So if these new add-ons could be contructed by someone with GM Carpentry and, for example, about 50 Herding. . *shrug* Just a thought /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    I just asked for the revised magery, 'cause Necromancy isn't even worth hoping for. I don't even see why people still bother talking about. Been years, now. Maybe it's time to believe in other things than, like, Father Christmas.

    you say that, but we'd have had a lot more people in and around Valoria if that old spawn was still there. There was always people there training up on the orc spawns, the brigand spawns, then legging it when they saw an orc mage :). would have given the guards something to do as well :)
