    I know there is almost no chance of getting a reply from a dev in this thread, but I think it's worth asking and worth discussing.

    Would it be possible to change the moongates in Felucca back to the way the used to be (cycling and only leading to other Fel moongates), and return moonstones... while at the same time keeping moongates in Trammel, Ilshenar, Malas, Tokuno, and Ter Mur functioning the way that they currently do but without Felucca moongates on the list?

    It certainly could not hurt the game, and it would actually bring back some of the old economy (moonstone sales).

    Edit: oh, forgot, in order for the moonstones to be of full use, recalling/gating into and out of felucca should be turned back to the way it used to as well, though obviously while in felucca you should be able to recall to anywhere else in felucca that you currently can recall to. Also obviously while in all trammel ruleset facets you should still be able to recall to any area in any other trammel ruleset facet that you currently can.

    I'm all for returning tram/fel moonstones.

    If you notice, with UOAM/UOC you could see your location in Malas while your in any other facet as well.. wonder if it's set up like that, in which case they would beable to add Moonstones for Every facet. could be interesting, maybe a way to get to the unexplored areas in Ter-Mur?

    I think, removing trammel & felucca as facets would be cool. Rename both to Britannia. Then split every other continent into a tram/fel ruleset, so we habe Fel Brit, Fel, Ilsh, Fel Malas, Fel Tokuno, Fel Ter Mur, Tram Brit, Tram Ilsh, Tram Malas, Tram Tokuno and Tram Ter Mur. Unlink tram & fel moongates. Use moonstones to switch between fel & tram.

    Why would you want to split Fel off from the rest of the world, it is already dead enough. What benifit would this bring to UO as a whole and yes I do remember using moonstones to get to my house in Fel and back to Tram.

    2 major problems with this is people with multi accounts that have houses in Fel and Tram(rule set) that use 12th yr House teleporters or the rechargable ones that you buy from UOGamecodes. With this change you have just destroyed both of them. You do understand that this is the major use for these 2 items.

    NO Thank You.

    Not a good idea.

    Moonstones were put out of use on purpose because people were using them to grief other players with Keeps and Castles.

    As well as using them for other NOT very good purposes I would rather not mention.

    Something I over looked, these could also be changed, especially since the rechargeable ones work off gate travel scrolls.

    And you're very wrong, I understand very well how useful teleporter tiles are, I have put quite alot of thought into it.


    @Willa, griefing other players with castles and keeps? Why is this the first time I am hearing of this? And the other not very good purposes would be what?

    And what is wrong with griefing in Felucca? As long as it stays out of Trammel ruleset areas and doesn't cross over into any rl griefing, all is peachy, right?
