  • I'm all for bringing that back but they need to be good questions like What is you perspective on the scripting problems with eggs? Are you considering any changes to drop rates or paragon spawns in destard? IE - important topical questions If…

  • You are correct. It seems they learned how to index a database and it works quite well now even on Atlantic and its lightning fast on other shards. You can tune a database but you can't tune a fish.  
  • McDougle said: See I've said before i just want to fish and pirate and if you'd just add the new rewards to the black market I'd never step on land people are shoehorned into doing things.  RMT sellers and scripters would be out of business i…

    in Egg Script Comment by Theo May 31
  • Rom said: Pawain said: If you think someone is scripting PAGE A GM! Do like others do, get ahead of them and take the eggs first. Make them admit what they are doing in overhead chat.  If you need help on how to annoy someone to the …
  • I just wish the dev team would admit what we know to be true - they literally can't afford to ban scripters since this game is basically abandonware so every one might as well script up.  UO has become battle of the bots. 
  • TimSt said: You just need to be smarter than the scripters.  Find out which spawn spots they hit and in which order. When you see them at a particular spot recall to their next spot before they do and gather the eggs there.  That is what I do…
  • Lord_Frodo said: popps said: All that is necessary, at least to my opinion, to make RMT sites not worth the effort and the hassle, is for UO Developers to make any and all items to be MUCH LESS time consuming to be obtained. Sadly …
  • If you have 125 items in your pack you can do the quest but you won’t get the reward (the calc is run on your current item count not count after turning 10 in). Seems like the scripters sometimes mess up and try to turn in with 125 items.  One did t…
  • McDougle said: Or sell them in the uo store for less no profit no rmt I'm totally on board with this.  Items of the Fey event - turn in points or buy via Sovereigns for 5-250 sovereigns depending on 'point' value'.    I'd much rat…
  • Seth said: When players on a shard are staunch supporters of shard bound, look at Atlantic. They are far from dead. They have not seen truly dead shards who will never get to see any of the shard bound items in future. Not true - scripts …
  • Pawain said: Seth said: If every game design objective in UO is targeted against bots and scripters at the expense of normal players, then it will never be fun. Unfortunately this is UO. Very sad. Well if they are designing ag…
  • The flag should be reset when you recall or use a moongate.  You've left the area of battle. There is no sense in not allowing someone to log out.   I get attacked by a mongbat. I kill said mongbat. I recall home.  I am in a timeout until my next to…
  • McDougle said: The continued silence from the developers is a joke at this point.. They literally can’t afford to ban players at this point.  It’s super simple to find the scripters if you wanted.   There are plenty of ways to automate the…
  • Marge said: I use them daily have thought many times of this. Just a simple little box added to the sorting options would make it so much easier. It would reallly help too with tailoring's "shirt" \ "skirt" eye strain nightmare. Also, I am s…

  • Hera_Siege said: @ Mariah - Nice!  Would have been awesome if the GM I paged had directed me to that page...  Guess not a bug for the release portion either.   What would be really nice is if all house add ons worked the same.  Some you ax…
  • Thank you so much for all your service over the years.   In the days before vendor search and auction safes - this was the very best place to go for rares and other items both as a seller and a buyer.  Those high priced items that you coudln't affo…
  • Looks like they got the stats updated - the search is working better now.  Returns in a reasonable amount.  If this is the issue when setup a script to run every day to update the indexing statistics daily.    If you need DBA help let me know. Its …
  • No surprise.  They always add new items and forget to make the smeltable. Its a common issue.  The people creating items don't understand crafting.    Wait like 9 publishes and maybe it gets fixed. 
  • Does anyone care?  Honestly.  A simple search on Great Lakes for 'Horned Runic' barely comes back after 2 minutes.   Barbed Runic times out.    Seriously. Index the database already. Do you need help?  This is like data management 101.

  • Its hard to keep up and frustrating that there are SO many flavors.  They really should have made quantity 15 for everything so its easier to match them up. You wouldn't have to save so many to fill things.  It used to be a thing to collect and swap…
  • The pet has to be bonded. 
  • I have over 35,000 and still collecting.  When you do a large you combine 5-7 bods and only get one back.  Thats the only way to bring the number down.  ;-) 
  • For this event the way to go was the Semhidar spawn in Fel.  On Great Lakes we did it about 3-4 times per hour.  Depending on the ppl there you would get at least 4-5 per spawn if not more.  At least 20 per hour.  I only did this event for the last …
