(NEWS) 3 Plus Hours Unattended

    It was a very interesting day!

    I serendipitously found myself ONLINE, in UO, several hours after I walked away. Well, I had some "real life" things to take care of. I left my Avatar without logging out at the "Magic Mushroom" on Moonglow Isle, after many hours of scribing recall scrolls for Patrons of our Vendor Shop.

    Wow, I was still on after 3 hours of non-attendance. I had not done anything or had any scripts going. I just thought that I would have to log back in. Hmm, no, my character was still there and ready. My thoughts are, "What could I have done unattended for 3 hours, with a script of any kind running?"

    I might put up some pictures on this, in the next few hours, but the concern is still there. See, These little details disturb me, where it used to (Auto-log a player OUT,) after 10-15 minutes after no attention or movement, now I've let the character sit (Online- doing nothing,) for 3+ hours. Where is the old thing about, "Your Character has been Idle too long."?

    I was shocked and amazed at this. I DO believe in fair play. I thought that after a short period, that my character would auto-log off. To see this was amazing, after all the times that I've been bumped-off for what-ever reason over the years.*wipes blood from both cheeks and other body parts* - *Thanks the gods that it is all only Virtual-Reality, and 2D at that.*

    I had nothing to fear then, nor now, but simply contemplate, what exploit someone else might have used during those unattended hours.

    *Things that make you wanna-go "Hhhhmmmm?"*

    ps, -also something weird going on with scribing, but I just need to report that one. Sorry guys, can't talk about the bug I found. If you found it, just don't do it, and help keep the game clean.

    If you're in a high traffic area, such as luna bank, your character will stay logged in so long as there are people walking around on your screen. This updates your journal in turn keeping you logged in. Hope this helps :)

    Have to agree with Achilles here a whole lot of not much will keep you in game if left unattended birds anything moving into your area will often keep you logged in at times. Lucky ya didnt get wacked! :}
