  1. Can we please have our tents back?
    Make it so that I can only place it on my plot if ya have to, but please gimme back my tent!!

    Even better, make the tents buildable on the house menu.
    Id love a storied tent even better!
    Cmon devs.....
  2. I would like to see tents returned if for nothing else but to make camping better. You know you can customise your plot to make it look like a tent...kinda.
  3. Yeah, but "kinda" aint good enough.
    They have the tents of old I want, and those are the ones I want!

    I wish I could have a tent on siege. My bank box is full of bods now and no left over accounts to put a house there anymore.

  5. Boat?
  6. I couldn't agree with you more about wanting the tents back,but I have learned over the years playing UO is learning to "make-do" with what the devs let us have. Charger of the Fallen is a perfect example. That's as close as the devs will let us get to having an armored horse. It doesn't fit my paladin well rp wise...but ehhh...what can I do?

    Camping is the first skill I raised in this game, because I didn't know you could log off in taverns...

    The skill should probably be removed if it's not revamped, and tents are an interesting idea :)

    *sighs* I joined this game during T2A and missed getting to play with tents. But I would like them to bring them back just so I can place my own tent :)

    Is it just me or does it seem like all the little things that got us hooked 12 years ago have been removed and along with item base play look what UO has become...

    Maybe the DEVS could learn from this trend and put coding back ing thats already there and slowly remove the item based and once again make SKILL base just a thought

    and ya uo is dead and thats just a fact. if you have played as long as i have and still say that your a fool and are lying

    I wouldn't mind, as long as they make them slightly different in color, size or whatever from the originals. I don't have an old tent deed (yet) but I would like to be able to work towards owning a rare in game without it then becoming next to worthless because the devs decided to bring it back.

    It would be cool if they revamped camping though..hmm.. maybe like in some console games, where if you camp you get your hp and mana regenerated on the spot (one game that comes to mind is kingdome hearts). You could have one person at a spawn set up a camping spot, and based on that persons skill, you could go and "camp" for a few seconds and regain hp/mana/stam faster or more of it...again, based on the camper-builders skill. Not useable again for several minutes of course. That would be neat.

    I vote yes and ONLY if they made em in the classic premade house menu with premade colors.

    Customizing tents would make UO look like a Barnum and Bailey promo game.

    But yeah i could live with a tent in which maybe we could place on uneven ground?

    Another option is allow accounts already with a home the chance at a 7x7 or 8x8 tent placeable and accessed only by your char with 75(reasonable?) camping. There's the solution to the unused camping skill.

    Gypsy wagon would be cool too. Especially if you could access your bank with it parked anywhere as well as a safe log out. It would be heaven for those of us who play multi shards on one account.

    I'm just happy with what i've got though.
  18. It is selfishness like this that has kept items and unique crafter options from being brought into the game. People that have spent millions and millions,and sometimes rl cash,for a rare in game would cry and whine too much if something was put into the game that would make their uber rare item,not rare.

    They could just give us tent tiles walls in house editor. They tiles are sitting there waiting to be used.

    Why shouldn't they whine and cry if they worked hard to earn that rare item by killing monsters, crafting and whatever else to earn the gold to get that item, and then the devs go and make an npc that makes the same thing?

    What, exactly, is wrong with having an uber rare item if you've worked for it? Why would we want such an item to become devalued? Ohhh... that's right! because it keeps ingenuity out of the game right?


    Seems to me that people like you don't care about the history of the game, and thus the rarity of some items, and you're going to whine and cry until you're able to own one...of anything rare... of your own, just because you're unwilling to put the time and effort into obtaining such items. So, instead of saving gold for that rare item, it makes it easier for you if the devs just throw it back into the game.

    I did say that it wouldn't bother me (and I'm assuming anyone else who would like to own a rare tent deed) to put tents in game as long as they didn't use the same designs(ability to put tents anywhere included) or colors as before. And they aren't unique crafter options OR items if they've been in the game before, the devs used the same patterns, fyi.

    Thanks for flaming, you lose, come play again soon!:lol:

    im fine with tents if there is no auto refresh or 90 day rule. you should have to refresh your tent daily or it will collapse. and you can have 1 tent per account regardless of house ownership.

    this way little tent cities could emerge near event areas or whatever is going on maybe near idocs, then disappear, or someone could just have a tent or camp out area for fun. would add a nice aspect to UO.

    also, anyone can enter a tent, but only the owner can access the bin, and it is auto log out for owner only. so it is not a safe pvp house, but good fun thing for idoc areas or event areas.

    good idea KoolAid

    We got hooked on UO because of tents? Man, we must have been very bored back then! :p
  26. Oh,I lose because I don't see things your way and agree with what you say on the subject? I don't mind others having rares and such in the game,but to try to block any attempt to bring some older items back into the game for ones own greed is wrong. I am not suprised by this typical reaction of "me first" in the game,it's been like that for as long as the game has be online.
  27. Oh lord.....didnt ya even read the post?
    Perhaps you missed the part where I asked for them to be able to be placed on the house plots?
