    The changes made to the mechanics that go into cannon firing and cannon resource crafting were created because of Player Feedback. If you want to make UO better then talk to the developers like many do. Or you can whine here about how they do not listen.

    Rising Tide TC Release 1 – Ultima Online Info here.

    Im sure there will be a news break soon.

    You need to patch to play!

    All of this was the result of Player Feedback. We wanted just one size cannon so instead of just turning them all into the large cannon, they made them 2 artwork and names.

    Ship Cannon Crafting & Firing Update
    • Harvesting saltpeter in Felucca now applies a 1000 point luck bonus where it previously did not.
    • Alchemists who sell saltpeter have been added to the Moonglow & Britain docks.
    • Match & Matchchord have been removed from alchemy crafting and are no longer needed in the cannon use process.
      • The match can still be used to fire a cannon
      • Match & match chord can be turned in for Cleanup Britannia points
    • Crafting potash no longer requires water as an ingredient, instead crafters must be near a water source which includes the water trough, water tub, water barrel, bucket of water, fountain of life, sinks, dragon tubs, dragon turtle fountains, koi ponds, and the water wheel.
    • Potash now functions as a “make all” item and will craft as much as possible based on available ingredients.
    • The following changes have been made to existing cannon resources,
      • “light” and “heavy” powder charges are now simply “powder charge”
      • “light” and “heavy” cannonballs are now simply “cannonball”
      • “light” and “heavy” grapeshot is now simply “grapeshot”
      • “light” and “heavy” frost and flame cannonballs are now simply “frost cannonball” and “flame cannonball”
      • updated tileart for powder charge to make it more visually distinctive from cannonballs
      • updated tileart for grapeshot to make it more visually distinctive from powder charges
    • The following changes have been made to cannons & associated resources,
      • All existing cannons must be dismantled and replaced before use after Publish 104 is deployed.
      • The “light cannon” is now known as “culverin”
      • The “heavy cannon” is now known as “carronade”
      • Polished art assets for cannons to make them more visually distinctive
      • The metallic dyetub can now be used on placed cannons to hue them
      • Cannons are now containers, resources for firing cannons can be placed inside them in what is referred to as the “magazine”
    • The following changes have been made to the cannon firing process,
      • Cleaning a cannon is no longer required and the swab has been removed from tinkering. Existing swabs can be turned in for Cleanup Britannia points.
      • When double clicking a cannon the firing control has two options “PREP” and “FIRE”
        • A player must be within 2 tiles to execute this action
      • Place cannon firing resources inside the magazine and push the “PREP” button to begin the cannon firing process. Resources will be taken from the magazine.
        • Only 1 player may participate in preparing the cannon for firing.
      • Cannons will automatically move through each step in the “PREP” process so long as resources are present in the magazine.
        • This process will continue so long as the player is present on the ship, if the player leaves the ship the process will pause.
      • Cannons can now be fired with a match or a torch, as such torches will no longer auto-douse when placed in the backpack.

    Glad to see the Tinker add-on - back at the 20th anniversary meetup, they were surprised when we asked for one, because they thought they'd completed the add-ons, not remembering that the "Tinker table" wasn't a crafting tool, but a mean of summoning a temporary golem.

    I think some decorators will not like this.

    Bug Fixes
    • The interior decorator will no longer allow players to increase “house only” tiles pass their height restrictions.
    • Reduced lag within the Despise champion spawn.

    Added “Enable Legible Journal” option to the Classic Client under the display menu which makes any new journal text more legible.

    No new mounts :( The Water Wheel is bugged in EC, you can't see it at times. Love the look of the 2 new tables (tinker & repair deeds). New statues are cool too, but you can't turn them.

    Just tested the change to ship cannons on TC and I must admit they did a good job. Clicky in Brit Commons gives you everything you need (except for a torch) to test it out.. You load the new cannons with charges, fuses and cannonballs (or grapeshot) then click on Prep and it goes through the whole process of loading it (complete with messages), then you click on Fire. Very simple and a LOT less clicking. You can even dry dock your boat with the items still in the cannons. Love the changes. Haven't gone through the process of creating anything yet...

    All animated objects are bugged in the EC and you can't see them when you have your Circle of Transparency turned on... it's completely stupid... they need to fix the way the CoT works in the EC and make it work FAR better like the CC and be scalable like the CC one is... @Bleak !

    I agree with this about the CoT. When I returned and started using EC I was confused as to why this was totally different than the CC version.

    Does the repair deed table just hold the deeds?and you pull out the one you need? Or when loaded, does the table itself act as a tool to do the repair?
    I might love this =)
    No more trips to the bowyer's to repair a bow

    The repair table is broken, I updated a feedback discussion on the "official" forum. The way it works is you fill it with repair deeds from all the crafting skills (supposed to hold 500 of each). Then when you want to repair something you use the bench, select which skill you need to repair the item with, target the item and it repairs it. No need to journey to Luna to use deeds. However; I failed 10 out of 10 times on everything I tried with the exception of blacksmith (guess that's all they tested). The durability went down on each failure but I failed every time, even with items that still had 130/250 durability on them. Also you have to take the item off and place it in your back pack to repair it. As a bonus the bench disappeared on me lol and I don't mean the CoT EC bug, the bench was gone.

    They got the right idea then, just gotta get the kinks out. Gonna be some pissed off people if they keep losing vet rewards lol.

    Putting the item in the pack makes sense, I'm just glad to know we can use it as a tool onsite, and not have to keep running around to repair stuff

    If it works as it should, I can see this being a nice addition to my rubble house, and set to public for the customers to use.

    @Kyronix posted on the official forums that he found the cause of the problem with items not being repaired and should be fixed with tomorrows patch. Also, if you fill your backpack with the repair deeds, when you click on the add item button, you can target your backpack on your paper doll and it loads them all (at least on EC). AWESOME..l

    Takes twice as much ammo to scuttle a ship than before --- why?
    We complain about how much work it is to make ammo and it's changed to a bit simpler but now it's double the amount to scuttle a ship?
    I've only done pirate ships but I assume it's on the others too.

    I"m not happy, even if it is fixed. We didn't need cannon mechanics changed, and we didn't need an Easy button for firing them, we simply needed to be able to make them in a timely fashion, all he changed was the potash headache.

    To bad they didn't give the Water Wheel a different function in place of water source. A Water trough has the same function only difference is Cosmetics.
