    With all this refinement and armor changes, some are unhappy and some semi-happy others are just meh about the whole thing. This topic is not about that since we have a topic already going on.

    This thread is more about what you as the player would like to see in the game. Since a dev stated on TC1 about the above and others wanted it basically lets see if they can hear you the UO community here on Stratics.

    To make this thread very simple just add 3 ideas as you want to add to the game or changes. Just state your 3 and let others do the same.


    This is mine.....

    1) Add silver vanq weps back into the game and give them as a Super Undead Slayer property but with 10% more dame than a normal Super Undead Slayer. Make it not able to be POF and can not be repaired.

    2) Add regular black horses to the game and be able to be tamed.

    3) Make katanas be able to have poison applied to them again.

    1. Add more features to facilitate and encourage roleplaying
    2. Random quests to encourage wandering around the world.
    3. Add ways for players to change their shards permanently. I'd love to see the shards begin to separate in appearance and the players actions (or inaction) being the reason for it. We've had some tastes of this with the yew plague, townships, britain bank design etc. I'd love to see more ways. They could be simple scenarios led by every EM such if a kidnapped gardener's daughter is rescued safely than he agrees to donate his time to building a garden or beautifying one of the cities in repayment. Those who don't save her, but at least tried, he doesn't do anything... those who don't even make a decent effort, perhaps he does something malicious like poisoning some trees or plants in the cities already. Good/Neutral/Bad effect and could go even further beyond mere decoration results. Eventually, the world's would begin to change.

    Those are things I'd like to see!

    1) Support for player run towns so that houses are able to form a town and place or lockdown stuff in the area around their houses. With so much empty space, that would be an awesome use for it.

    2) Simplification of the weapon/armor system. If not possible to undo it, make a new dungeon where only items with property X are effective (similar to ophidian invasion where only power/mystic/vanq weapons could damage the creatures), and only armor with property Y defends against well against damage (similar to guild wars 1 where armor had to be infused to deal with mursaat), but that items with properties X and Y only spawn or are craftable with a greatly simplified system of mods.

    How about we stop adding crap and fix the annoying things that are still Broken; Li\uck, Pet Commands, Treasure Maps Spawning in water, Getting killed for night sighitng, House Items being unlocked or securtiyreset incorrectly, DUPING, Getting caught on corners of houses, Losing Boats, Losing Pets (pets going wild) and the list gooes on and on. Stop addding new content and fix the broekn content we already have. Then you can add more junk.

    1. All crafting skills get a bod system
    2. All bod systems give a POF reward possibility.
    3. Make the POF rewards for each crafting skill only work on the items that the particular crafting skill makes. IE
    we will now have Carpentry POF, Smith POF, etc...

    See thread on currency changes. Would love for your "gold" to be able to be converted to a number over your entire account, rather than each characters bank box. Drop a check in your bank, bam, it is added to your total.

    1. Give us the ability to change the appearance of our clothing/armour WITHOUT affecting any properties/stats/etc; purely COSMETIC. For example changing the Conjurer's Garb to a Dress or anything else that would fit the Robe slot, meaning you could not alter it into a quiver, etc. Or another example, would be changing the Mace and Shield Reading Glasses into a hat of your choice, but you could not alter it into a pair of sandals, etc! Also, sticking with the reading glasses example, it altered would have to be medable, so you couldn't change it into a plate helm (now because of the new armour changes, this would matter)

    I'm not sure what the name of the altered item would be, maybe something like Conjurer's Dress or Conjurer's Garb (altered)? Maybe call this new tool an Alteration Kit; have npc's sell a few charges for a mill, or a new craftable, i dunno but make it happen :)

    Or to simplify things, for now how about give us a toggle invis option for outerwear, hats and footwear. I think something like this is happening on test right now where certain items aren't visible, believe I read that Bleak was messing around with some stuff... would be great if this was a feature.

    2. see 1

    What I'd like to see is that ALL quests are the same ....... I'd like to do away with the 4 or 5 different quest systems and have all quests equal.

    I'd like to see New Haven finished and the missing skills put in for training..... I'd like to see them put in a new player experience that actually teaches new players more about how to play... One huge thing that's missing is teaching them the basics so the rest of us don't have to.... Maybe even bring back Councilors to help new players.

    I'd like to see Silver Steeds brought back to players maybe as a mount for Paladins....

    I want more tamables, there is no reason why we can't tame Dread Spiders, Black Widow Spiders, Fairy Dragons... Cranes... I want a Camel... Elephants that act like a boat on land..... allowing you to add friends who can ride with you...

    Chariots, small carts that can be pulled by your blue beetle...

    I'd like to be able to deed my house with everything in it and replace it somewhere else including on another shard. I'd like to be able to sell a deed of a stored house design on my vendor that someone else could purchase and set up just like they would using the housing tool...

    I'd like to be able to make miniatures of my home designs.

    I'd like to stop fishing up so much freaking footwear... I'd like to be able to NOT get another fishing quest without losing loyalty.

    I'd like to not worry about my boat vanishing without cause.

    I'd like a Greater White Wyrm that does cold damage like the mystic cold spell, a Green Earth Dragon that does maybe physical damage using the Mystic spell that tosses boulders. I'd like a nice Blue Dragon that does Energy Damage... Variety..... make them Greater Dragons.... but of different colors. And heck I'd like to see my brown dragons for brown in the EC too.....

    I'd like the ugly plucked chicken graphic of the Hiryu replaced with something that more resembles the nice 2d Hiryu...

    I'd like to see a restructuring of shards to something that had perhaps more focus on playstyles..... Shards that concentrate on RP.... Shards for PvP..... shards for PvE and PvM.... with EM's who cater to them.... and then give everyone the one time option to pack up everything and move to whatever one they pick.... and then from there on out they can move if they want with a token just like now.... but they have to pay.

    I'd like to see something done about the spammers who sell using newb characters at the banks spamming gold sales and such... I'd like them stopped.

    I've seen a lot of these threads, contributed to a few. Add three here, add three there. Zosimus, for you, I'll give three, but I'll try for one hundred and three just for fun (if anyone has tips on how to better truncate on this forum other than the code tag, let me know).

    001. Reintroduce Silver Steeds
    002. Add playable Orc Race
    003. Add Party Loot toggle (so that you don't have to break party for evenly distributed loot)

    Code:
    004. Hire someone to write weekly Factions RP
    005. Create Factions PVM tie-ins and quests to encourage all PVE players to join Factions
    006. Redesign Faction bases and remove Factions sigils in favor of base "nexus" creatures which can be "killed" for capture bonuses
    007.  Integrate event arcs in Fel more often and work on bridging the gap between play styles
    008. Add tameable ridable polar bears and bouras (non-ethy versions)
    009. Create horse armor for regular horses, for "Charge of the Fallen" look on normal horse mounts with a swamp dragon armor kind of bonus
    010. Buff the Unicorn, Ki-Rin, and Fire Steed to Nightmare quality per control slot usage
    011. Buff the Skree to make it a worthwhile pet
    012. Add Greater White Wyrms through a quest, or new spawn
    013. Buff the Reptalon to make it a worthwhile pet
    014. Add tameable Gryphons with special moves Rend and Howl.  Rend (5% proc) would be like Bleed, but would add an armor ignore on re-application, while Howl would add a chance for an energy damage based area attack which would increase in proc chance given more available targets (base 15%), and the attack would do fireball-quality damage with -20% damage for five seconds and an added sleep-like "slow" (forced walk) with a scalable duration, based on magic resist, for a base 2 seconds.
    015. Add gypsies and tents back to the game, maybe in Ilsh at the least, and have at least one of the gypsies also be a temporary vendor who sells rare colored sandals (throw back to the old days when we used to kill npc shopkeepers for their shoes)
    016. Reintroduce the idea of the veteran reward "magic hat" which would spawn magic regeants, rabbits, and the like
    017. Add a player vendor search function prior to October ;)
    018. Add a jewelry box to sort magic jewelry, similar in scope to that of a BOD book in how you might organize the mods, but perhaps with an imbuing-like interface
    019. Allow house tiles to act as legit garden tiles
    020. Scale Necromancy spells such as Evil Omen and Corpse Skin to be more effective at higher ranks and less effective at lower ranks, for example, -15 fire/-15 poison at 100 necro/100 spirit speak but -5 fire/-5 poison at 60 necro/spirit speak
    021. Make Fey Slayer imbueable and Scribe-craftable
    022. Customize loot tables on certain monsters, such as an abundance of magic bone armor off of skeletons, or an abundance of pre-poisoned weapons off of silver snakes or the sort
    023. Add a use for Essence of Persistence (maybe something defensive like resonance or eater)
    024. Add a use for Fey Wings (maybe imbue Fey Slayer)
    025. Add Iron Beetle Scale armor craftable through Undamaged Iron Beetle Scales and also add several new Iron Beetle spawns
    026. Add a use for Void Cores
    027. Allow tinker made golems to be "bonded" to the tinker, in which, upon death, the pet can be "repaired" back to health (corpse appears as item in player's backpack which must be repaired, which would open prompt).
    028. Increase usefulness of tinker made pets, perhaps by adding an earth ele slayer mod to all pets or something that could benefit crafter types
    029. Add tameable sea turtle "rowboat" size "ships," as well as rideable seahorses
    030. Add new fish, both in the sea and for the aquarium
    031. Add a new in-game gold pay option for fish tank maintenance, like a vendor, for those who would rather keep a tank up for display indefinitely rather than plunk a pellet down every week
    032. Add different types of llamas like there are ostards (forest, desert)
    033. Increase HP cap of -29.1 tameables to 500 through a quest or some other means
    034. Add ability of house pets other than parrots
    035. Allow for customized keep and castle plots
    036. Add player basements
    037. Create a type of cat-based tameable mount
    038. Return old look and sounds to Daemons and Liches
    039. Have Minax do some fun things ;P
    040. Add different styles of underwear for paperdoll :P
    041. Add new clothes and facial hair variations
    042. Create experimental bonuses for all edible items crafted by a GM Chef, such as a loaf of bread with +5 Dex for, say, 300 seconds
    043. Give us those new status bars in Pub 81 all ready!
    044. Create a hi-res 2D client ;P
    045. Re-vamp the remaining dungeons and give a universal facelift to the loot system so everything is giving shame-like loot
    046. Add tridents, and create a true under the sea facet ;p
    047. Bring back Orc Slingers, and the Mimic
    048. Re-vamp the Twisted Weald and expand upon the size of the desert and the size of the map in general
    049. Add permanent skeletal horses somehow, because they're pretty cool
    050. Increase Summon Creature creature list to include some of the newer creatures like sliths, or make it facet-dependent for more variety
    051. Reintroduce the Bad Circle!
    052. Make a zombie invasion sometime soon, maybe with the speed of an unfrozen mummy
    053. Likewise, create a katana artifact which has a proc chance to one-shot any lesser zombie or undead (head shot!)
    054. Add another pack animal, like maybe a pack boura
    055. Create more interactive mobs like the headless miners, npcs or creatures who do habitual acts which can influence the game world or at least represent a fluid game environment (for example, a tailor npc "spinning" a spinning wheel (someone is using that!)
    056. Tameable monkeys (gorillas aren't enough!)
    057. Craftable monkey hats (!!!)
    058. Pirate guns!  Very slow (5 spd) and low damage from far away high damage up close (and hand loaded; only useful for macro-intense battles or duels!)
    059. New pirate hats, because there aren't enough styles and hat graphics shouldn't be too hard to make
    060. Water champ spawn!  Also an elemental based champ spawn
    061. Add new tameable dog and cat models
    062. Add an adjacent parry bonus for cross healers
    063. Add more spells to chivalry for more knight templar kind of situations
    064. Open up housing in those empty spaces of Malas
    065. Create an old school test shard that's just for PvP (custom arena based game play with nothing really to do but just fight, step into a gate for all 100s in skills, step into another gate for armor and GM made weapons, etc etc).
    066. Add a real Goblin playable race
    067. Add a Meer playable race
    068. Add an Undead playable race
    069. Add a Lizardman playable race
    070. Add a Werewolf playable race
    071. Add more werewolf npcs other than Aminia...maybe to the underworld ;D
    072. Relocate all of the dumb red gargoyles in the Stygian Abyss to somewhere in the overworld if possible
    073. Allow cranes to have a chance of being paragons in Tokuno
    074. Add different creatures to the deceit spawner, like a yamandon, or something perhaps a bit easier, just more variants of modern monsters
    075. Add respectable new dragon hues ;p
    076. Allow for powder of fort combining
    077. Add dance animations to SA client :P
    078. And swaying trees to SA client :P
    079. Create dual wield system and reverse katanas for 120 ninjitsu ninjas! :o
    080. Create a Void Facet full of demons (Minax?)
    081. Add wisp-like vendors in different parts of the world, just the concept of a rotating inventory or random inventory is pretty neat
    082. Add party-like duel system
    083. End the town riots...
    084. Give all gifts--even new ones--at least a marginal turn-in value of 1 point ;P...I need storage!
    085. Give players extra storage at a locker for a very high rate we can't possibly play then auction off items in storage for UO version of "Storage Wars"
    086. Nerf Irelia
    087. Erect some kind of cool statue of Lord British
    088. Have the compelling RP figures we are supposed to have in UO automate around the world kind of like Inu the Crone and the like. Habitual NPC actions would be cool.
    089. More war systems like the Ophidian vs Terathan battles
    090. Buff EVs slightly, and give them a much higher dispel tolerance versus monsters
    091. Fix flying snakes graphic glitch and sync issue gargoyle players have when moving over seats on in-game diagonal
    092. Create more gargoyle flight paths
    093. Add more interactive trees around the world like fruit bearing trees and stuff
    094. Create other kinds of player "skins," like tribal paint, maybe a red hue skin, etc.
    095. Give us permanent ship colors paid by in-game gold, perhaps like 1 mil per (a gold sink I would actually use)
    096. Increase uses for camping, perhaps add bard buff increase around camp fire, etc.
    097. Create new Soul Shard with like five skill slots in one.  I'd get one ;p
    098. New ship designs!
    099. High heels and equippable whips! ;p
    100. Um... dog collar gorget :P
    101. No one will read these last few, right?  Um...new lines of dialogue for parrots ;d
    102. Runebooks with more rune pages...
    103. Tameable black squirrels...

    1. I'd like to be able to switch chars without having to restart my CC.
    2. I'd like one loot system.
    3. I'd like more NEW people to play with in game.
    4. I'd like all moongates relocated next to, or in the nearest cities banks. Maybe this would shift players to other cities and not just luna.
    5. I'd like to customize my castles like I can with the 18x18 houses.
    6. I'd like a point system for the bod system.
    7. I'd like less mods on items in game.
    8. I'd like to be able to remove unwanted mod from items.
    9. I'd like to have a dwarf (could take care of the last one on my list - dwarves are famous for crafting), druid, orc, half-giant, half-elf, Halfling as player race.
    10. I'd like magic robes with abilities found in my old AD(and)D books. Robe of wonder, stars, many pockets, etc... and make them loot off the burning mages in shame.
    11. I'd like a belt of dwarven power that allows other races to wield and use thrown weapons.
    12. I'd like UOGOLD.xxx bots Identified and banned. (Seriously, I see more of these books near the banks and moongates then I do players some nights!) Makes UO feel sooo back-alley to me.

    ...

    1. Finish the High Res EC revamp, replace CC plants with KR plants (but finish the job of tweaking/refining to make them nice and crisp).

    2. Vendor Search

    3. Gold deposits (turning looted gold into non-physical gold tally)

    4. Log Out function goes to character select screen, NOT the initial log in screen

    I'll just go with those... 3 of which have been discussed/planned/partially completed, 1 of which has not.

    Don't forget Black Cats and Dogs!
    Totally! And not patsy spring bright rainbow brite colors but nice darker hues. No one wants to go around on neon bright boats.

    Add a City of Dark Elves and a Dark Elf based Champ Spawn to the Underworld..... YOU KNOW THIS SHOULD BE THERE. It IS the Underworld Afterall and we all know they live there.

    This ^


    Start with robes and work your way down! Back when the only good robe was a 3% resist increase, few bothered using them. The cosmetic customization was perfectly fine.

    I have 4. They're pretty simple really.

    1: fix the lag for good (after 15 years of low end graphics this game should be running at the speed of light)
    2: bring back original Order/Chaos
    3: revamp pets that cast necro/mystic and or have viable specials that make sense
    4: the ability to alter garg items back into human items.

    Just a few little things most folks aren't likely to care about:

    1. Make food (and the chef profession) a bit more important to the game than they are currently.
    2. Shorten the length of time one has to wait between plantings in Magincia.
    3. Give oddball players like me the option to trade their house for a lovely (and livable) gypsy camp! *points to avatar*

    I'm hoping for #3 in a big way for Shroud of the Avatar. Mainly for the allowance of Gypsy Wagons as (movable) player homes and then allow the camps to spring up and disappear naturally via the players.

    1) Bring back Scenarios. They were by far the best method of in game fiction. Was a long event, and everyone could contribute/participate. Story lasts a month, and progresses every week, with a final EM lead event with a boss or whatever.

    2) Convert Tracking, Camping, into "Wilderness skills" or "Survival". Gives ability to forage for food and random goodies in different areas, set up temporary tents with locked chests for storage via "Tent kit" made with tailoring. Maintain ability to track, and to "set up camp". If you also have tinkering, allow making of trap kits, that allow you to set a variety of traps, better the tinkering/survival the better the traps available.

    3) Expand gardening to include every single plant in game. Trees, flower variants, ferns, mushroom, whatever. All of it. I camped the mag event and got like 100 rare ferns and plants, but I want everyone to have access to them.

    I've posted many lists. The top one is the most recent and most comprehensive. The others are much needed changes to content rushed out and never fixed....
    Note the overwhelming positive feedback to MY list of enhancements (list 1) vs the silly refinements/town loyalty/weapon changes....

    While I'd be hard-pressed to give up a home for one, it would be great to have the land equivalent of a ship that could be purchased like a ship and with similar storage. A group of Gypsy Wagons camped out in the woods could be great for RP - that's for sure...

    We have enough of content related to: Items, PvM bosses, Land Areas, Classes, Armor modifications etc.

    The New Election system is a great step... Brings community together, but the rewards could have been better thought through (its not innovative). I like the gold sink idea - If only minor

    - Add mechanics for owning land... and fight for regions.
    - More gold sink alternatives. eg buy addons to your house, discount for vendor rates etc.
    - Remove Bank checks and make a proper gold system, based on numbers.
    - Merge item properties in order to make it easier/understandable for new players.
    - Make it possible for new players to get (not buy) all items, pets etc which are non-deco - eg Conjurer Garb, Rangers Cloak, Dread Warhorses etc.
    - Create a proper cloak (ie graphics like Cloak of Humility) for Mages which has equal mods as Quiver of inifinity - Why do we see mages running around with Quivers still?
    - Radically ditch the Enhanced client and begin from scratch to make a proper new client and then ditch the classic one.
    - When all is done above - start working on improving content like we all ready have... like incentives in Ilshendar, Doom, Faction system replacement etc.

    I still like my simple idea, but Daelomin ^^^^^^^ has some excellent ones, especially for somebody that's been around at least 5 years - with less than 200 posts... So where you been hiding Daelomin ? :cool:

    Just 3.. ok. Scenarios. We had many great ones in the past and im even for recycling some of them . ToT was great but rewards are a bit outdated perhaps. Running around in the old dungeons as a troll chasing sparkles ..great fun . Guess we cant ruin Magincia again?

    A dungeon for new players to train in. A place where you get education and skill training plus some gold .

    My third would be 3 more wishes:D

    A reason to go fishing again.

    I dont PvP but I feel Faction revamp or Order Chaos would be good fo UO and whats good for UO benefits us all..

    Altering robes etc and clean undies:banana:

    1. Fix the things that are already in the game.
    2. In-game music system. (The "Oh, but copyright!" answer given at the last meetup is a cop out. If Lord of the Rings Online can do it, why the hell can't we?)
    3. Make it so that players can actually live in Britannia's cities. (Rent-able NPC buildings, housing/shop spots amidst our current cities, etc.)
    4. Other things.
