UO in the News

June 14, 2014 By: petra Category: Community News

communityThis week Brianna Royce of ‘Massively’ waxes lyrical in her article Working As Intended: The forgotten fields of Green Acres

Personally I feel she’s under something of a misapprehension. The contact she’s regretting the loss of is still very much there in our game with our active EMs, frequent visits from Mesanna and the recent in game ‘meet the devs’ events.

Transcript of Developer Meet & Greet 04June2014 – Atlantic Shard

June 05, 2014 By: Flair Category: Atlantic News, Community News


[14/06/04][17:57:57] [Mesanna]: Good evening Atlantic
[14/06/04][17:58:17] [Kyronix]: Good evening everyone!
[14/06/04][17:58:49] [Mesanna]: ok if you have a question line up
[14/06/04][17:59:03] [Mesanna]: once it is answered please step on the teleport tile to leave
[14/06/04][17:59:16] [Mesanna]: one question per person please
[14/06/04][17:59:20] [Mesanna]: Shall we start?
[14/06/04][17:59:43] [Mesanna]: Bennu start please
[14/06/04][17:59:58] [Mesanna]: Greetings Nythrax
[14/06/04][18:00:01] [Nythrax]: Hello!
[14/06/04][18:00:05] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[14/06/04][18:00:20] [Nythrax]: So I wanted to ask a question about Armor Refinement.
[14/06/04][18:00:50] [Mesanna]: ok
[14/06/04][18:00:53] [Nythrax]: Right, so you guys came up with this system, and the forum…
[14/06/04][18:01:04] [Nythrax]: …went pretty much insane crapping on it. Huge negative feedback.
[14/06/04][18:01:23] [Nythrax]: But you guys pressed ahead anyway, and to date I’ve never seen a person wearing refined armor.
[14/06/04][18:01:55] [Nythrax]: A) Why did you press ahead despite the feedback and B) do you consider this a mistake now?
[14/06/04][18:02:31] [Kyronix]: Well firstly, we don’t consider it a mistake now. You may not see people wearing it, but there
[14/06/04][18:02:39] [Kyronix]: Are those that take advantage of what armor refining offers
[14/06/04][18:03:00] [Nythrax]: Like who? I’ve been looking at people in the room this whole time looking for some.
[14/06/04][18:03:18] [Kyronix]: And we take feedback from a number of sources, and one of the major concerns was that
[14/06/04][18:03:25] [Mesanna]: *counts number of people in this room*
[14/06/04][18:03:26] [Kyronix]: Storage was an issue, so we introduced the almagamator
[14/06/04][18:03:50] [Nythrax]: What level of negative feedback would be required for you to scrap an idea?
[14/06/04][18:03:54] [Nythrax]: Does such a threshold exist?
[14/06/04][18:04:13] [Mesanna]: I am sorry you have answered and we have answered
[14/06/04][18:04:22] [Nythrax]: Well anyway thanks for the answer
[14/06/04][18:04:26] [Mesanna]: Thank you
[14/06/04][18:04:29] [Kyronix]: Thank you
[14/06/04][18:04:40] [Abra-Kadabra]: Hello all
[14/06/04][18:04:42] [Mesanna]: Hi Abra

[14/06/04][18:08:32] [Real Talk]: yes the buff they provide are quite good in pvp is there any thought to allow reds to use them

[14/06/04][18:10:10] [Crystal] Zeijah says: will UO ever be free to play MMO?

[14/06/04][18:10:36] [Crystal] Mesanna says: not going to discuss that at this time.. but you never know
[14/06/04][18:10:50] [Zeijah]: darn ok thank you
[14/06/04][18:10:50] [Crystal] Zeijah says: darn ok thank you
[14/06/04][18:11:01] [Mesanna]: that was not a yes or no
[14/06/04][18:11:01] [Crystal] Mesanna says: that was not a yes or no
[14/06/04][18:11:18] [Mesanna]: hi SunWolf
[14/06/04][18:11:33] [SunWolf]: was going to ask, for you to check certain areas of the lands again
[14/06/04][18:11:43] [SunWolf]: like santuary dungeon, and several of the islhnar
[14/06/04][18:11:59] [SunWolf]: the respawn rates and mobs, makes them unplayable for anyone who is new or casual
[14/06/04][18:12:07] [SunWolf]: and flair wants pink underwear
[14/06/04][18:12:37] [Mesanna]: If you feel the spawn rates are bad then send us a bug so we can look at those areas
[14/06/04][18:12:38] [SunWolf]: sorry, hi mesanna
[14/06/04][18:12:49] [Mesanna]: and Flair will never get pink underware
[14/06/04][18:12:49] [SunWolf]: ok, thanks
[14/06/04][18:13:03] [SunWolf]: well, it was really for tazar but still.
[14/06/04][18:13:06] [SunWolf]: thanks though
[14/06/04][18:13:11] [Mesanna]: not touching that
[14/06/04][18:13:14] [EM Bennu]: hawt
[14/06/04][18:13:18] [Naraku]: Greeting!
[14/06/04][18:13:21] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[14/06/04][18:13:23] [Misk]: hello
[14/06/04][18:13:24] [Mesanna]: Greetings Naraku
[14/06/04][18:13:29] [Naraku]: Can you look into ther timer on smoke bombs? I belive that it is way too low. Smoke bombs should be an emergancy use item, the fact that someone can pvp with no way to heal other then potions and still never die is crazy to me.
[14/06/04][18:13:43] [Naraku]: Can you look into ther timer on smoke bombs? I belive that it is way too low. Smoke bombs should be an emergancy use item, the fact that someone can pvp with no way to heal other then potions and still never die is crazy to me.
[14/06/04][18:13:53] [Naraku]: sry
[14/06/04][18:13:57] [Misk]: we can look into that
[14/06/04][18:13:58] [Naraku]: didnt mean to do that 2x
[14/06/04][18:14:05] [Naraku]: With the time it takes me to throw a conflag on the ground and it finally reveals them, they take 3 steps and smoke bomb again, and the fact that they can go animal form while stealth, makes it nearly impossible to kill anyone with pract
[14/06/04][18:14:05] [Misk]: we can look into that
[14/06/04][18:14:08] [Misk]: we can look into that
[14/06/04][18:14:20] [Mesanna]: you are going to make me squelch you
[14/06/04][18:14:27] [Mesanna]: lol
[14/06/04][18:14:29] [Naraku]: i had all that ready
[14/06/04][18:14:39] [Mesanna]: ok stop
[14/06/04][18:14:44] [Mesanna]: lol
[14/06/04][18:15:19] [Mesanna]: Is that all Narku?
[14/06/04][18:15:24] [Misk]: we can check into the delay and see if it is appropriate
[14/06/04][18:15:24] [Naraku]: on last thing

[14/06/04][18:21:45] [Mesanna]: hi Malik
[14/06/04][18:21:47] [Malik]: Hello, nice to meet you all!
[14/06/04][18:21:50] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[14/06/04][18:21:56] [Mesanna]: you also
[14/06/04][18:21:58] [Malik]: loved this game since I was a kid, fantastic work!
[14/06/04][18:21:59] [Misk]: hello
[14/06/04][18:22:12] [Malik]: I want to address alliance theivery.
[14/06/04][18:22:35] [Malik]: Several times I’ve built up new players, gotten them in my guild/alliance to kill the “big” stuff
[14/06/04][18:22:53] [Malik]: and that is what alot of us love to do in UO.
[14/06/04][18:23:11] [Malik]: However, everytime we get a force large enough to kill monsters such as Scalis etc
[14/06/04][18:23:26] [Malik]: somebody infiltrates our guild, robs our members blind, and everyone quits and we are back to
[14/06/04][18:23:48] [Malik]: square one. countless new players have quit the game over this. My question is… .why is it allowed?
[14/06/04][18:24:07] [Mesanna]: You have controll over who is and is not in your guild
[14/06/04][18:24:17] [Mesanna]: my question to you is what would you expect us to do?
[14/06/04][18:24:34] [Mesanna]: We do not govern who you add
[14/06/04][18:24:45] [Malik]: a guild option that says simply: once in VK you may not join thieves guild, do you accept?
[14/06/04][18:24:52] [Malik]: or any guild for that matter.
[14/06/04][18:25:14] [Mesanna]: you let me make sure I understand
[14/06/04][18:25:15] [Malik]: there is no way for us to identify the thief with disguise kits or forensics or any of that
[14/06/04][18:25:32] [Mesanna]: You want us to give guilds the ability to set rules
[14/06/04][18:25:53] [Malik]: pretty much yes.
[14/06/04][18:25:53] [Mesanna]: Actually
[14/06/04][18:26:28] [Mesanna]: It would be easy to make sure someone can not join a guild if they are disguised
[14/06/04][18:26:50] [Mesanna]: so you know the true nature of each member
[14/06/04][18:27:00] [Malik]: they never join while disguised. they soulstone off stealing and stuff when they join, and arent in
[14/06/04][18:27:40] [Malik]: thieves guild, so forensics doesn’t show they’re a thief.
[14/06/04][18:27:55] [Malik]: then they disguise themselves, join guild, soulstone on stealing….
[14/06/04][18:28:01] [Malik]: join thieves guild*
[14/06/04][18:28:20] [Mesanna]: thats a hard one that we would have to talk about
[14/06/04][18:28:26] [Mesanna]: not a really easy solution there
[14/06/04][18:28:30] [Mesanna]: to be honest
[14/06/04][18:28:42] [Mesanna]: we will talk about it when the team is back from vacation
[14/06/04][18:28:46] [Mesanna]: as you see Bleak is not here
[14/06/04][18:28:59] [Mesanna]: but we will talk about it
[14/06/04][18:29:05] [Malik]: that’s all I can ask for, just wanted to let u know it’s a big problem for some of us.
[14/06/04][18:29:09] [Mesanna]: about giving guilds more options
[14/06/04][18:29:29] [Malik]: Thank you for your time!
[14/06/04][18:29:38] [Mesanna]: you’re welcome
[14/06/04][18:29:48] [SCORPION]: [Is there anything being done about the welcome back to brit houses that never decay?

[14/06/04][19:01:23] [Akron]: its like they script for character awareness
[14/06/04][19:01:32] [Akron]: no way to detect it if your character is visible
[14/06/04][19:01:32] [Mesanna]: I know there is one
[14/06/04][19:01:37] [Akron]: i know of 5
[14/06/04][19:01:43] [Akron]: but i will not call them out
[14/06/04][19:01:44] [Mesanna]: but a GM can talk to them without going visible
[14/06/04][19:01:50] [Mesanna]: to see if they respond
[14/06/04][19:01:52] [Akron]: k
[14/06/04][19:01:57] [Akron]: invasion loot
[14/06/04][19:02:24] [Akron]: is it just a damage on general to decide where the minax arti goes most just damage and dont help
[14/06/04][19:02:31] [Akron]: are a big part of that fight
[14/06/04][19:02:41] [Akron]: and get nothing when people are allways doing damage and not assisting others
[14/06/04][19:02:48] [Kyronix]: It’s all based on a combination of damage dealt, damage recieved, and damage healed
[14/06/04][19:03:09] [Akron]: is there a way to increase more then 2 drops per boss
[14/06/04][19:03:16] [Akron]: and make helping more viable then just damage
[14/06/04][19:03:29] [Akron]: food for thought
[14/06/04][19:03:37] [Kyronix]: Yes it is, thank you
[14/06/04][19:03:39] [Akron]: also last i dont know what this is about
[14/06/04][19:03:48] [Akron]: but flair said somthing about pink underwear?
[14/06/04][19:04:13] [Mesanna]: Thats a personal question you should ask Flair on the side
[14/06/04][19:04:14] [Akron]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:04:19] [Mesanna]: =)
[14/06/04][19:04:22] [Mesanna]: Thank you
[14/06/04][19:04:27] [Clara Codstongue]: Hiya all.
[14/06/04][19:04:32] [Mesanna]: Greetings Clara
[14/06/04][19:04:37] [Kyronix]: Hello
[14/06/04][19:04:38] [Clara Codstongue]: I have no complaining, just a few ideas.
[14/06/04][19:04:49] [Clara Codstongue]: First off, I know you are looking for ideas for new items for anny rewards and whatnot
[14/06/04][19:04:55] [Clara Codstongue]: I am sick of pooping outside.
[14/06/04][19:04:57] [Mesanna]: of course I am always
[14/06/04][19:05:03] [Clara Codstongue]: Can we have a toilet to go with out bathtub?
[14/06/04][19:05:07] [Mesanna]: you are in luck
[14/06/04][19:05:28] [Mesanna]: I asked for a toilet this year
[14/06/04][19:05:33] [EM Taweret]: yay!
[14/06/04][19:05:39] [Clara Codstongue]: Haha, nice thank you 😀
[14/06/04][19:05:47] [Mesanna]: *smiles*
[14/06/04][19:05:48] [Clara Codstongue]: Okay, for our Em’s, just a quick idea.
[14/06/04][19:06:12] [Clara Codstongue]: I know a lot of events have drops based on whoever did the moste damage and healing or whatever
[14/06/04][19:06:29] [Clara Codstongue]: but once in a blue moon, wouldn’t it be cool for a clicky to spawn when the big boss dies
[14/06/04][19:06:35] [Clara Codstongue]: with like a 60 second life span
[14/06/04][19:06:37] [Mesanna]: no
[14/06/04][19:06:41] [Clara Codstongue]: One click per account, get a treat?
[14/06/04][19:06:45] [Mesanna]: we changed the top attacker
[14/06/04][19:06:59] [Mesanna]: top attacker is now random
[14/06/04][19:07:08] [Clara Codstongue]: Could you explain that real quick?
[14/06/04][19:07:10] [Mesanna]: its not based just on damage or healing
[14/06/04][19:07:12] [Mesanna]: yes I am
[14/06/04][19:07:15] [Clara Codstongue]: If someone gets looting rights on the mob
[14/06/04][19:07:18] [Clara Codstongue]: Do they have a chance?
[14/06/04][19:07:20] [Mesanna]: so if you have done damage or healed
[14/06/04][19:07:29] [Mesanna]: we set a number of rewards to give out per boss
[14/06/04][19:07:37] [Mesanna]: it will give out that number now
[14/06/04][19:07:44] [Mesanna]: but you can not stand to the side
[14/06/04][19:07:44] [Clara Codstongue]: Cool, I enjoy those.
[14/06/04][19:07:49] [Mesanna]: and wait for a clicky to appear
[14/06/04][19:07:55] [Clara Codstongue]: That makes sense.
[14/06/04][19:07:56] [Mesanna]: thats why I am against them
[14/06/04][19:08:06] [Clara Codstongue]: Finally.
[14/06/04][19:08:06] [Mesanna]: I wanted it to often
[14/06/04][19:08:14] [Clara Codstongue]: Going with what the last person said
[14/06/04][19:08:21] [Clara Codstongue]: To combat AFK farming in BT’s…
[14/06/04][19:08:30] [Mesanna]: we are aware I promise
[14/06/04][19:08:34] [Clara Codstongue]: Removing the drops from the non invasion spawning mobs..
[14/06/04][19:08:38] [Clara Codstongue]: is possible..
[14/06/04][19:08:54] [Clara Codstongue]: But that’s all I got
[14/06/04][19:08:56] [Clara Codstongue]: Thanks for you time 😀
[14/06/04][19:08:58] [Mesanna]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:09:00] [Kyronix]: Thank you
[14/06/04][19:09:07] [Scribbles]: hello all
[14/06/04][19:09:07] [Mesanna]: Hi Scribbles
[14/06/04][19:09:17] [Kyronix]: Hello there
[14/06/04][19:09:25] [Scribbles]: So first. any chance for a sandstone foundation
[14/06/04][19:09:38] [Scribbles]: i cant find a foundation that matches sandstone walls
[14/06/04][19:09:42] [Scribbles]: thickness or color
[14/06/04][19:09:42] [Mesanna]: I will add it to the art list
[14/06/04][19:09:45] [Scribbles]: ty
[14/06/04][19:09:56] [Scribbles]: second. any chance for gms to be around more?
[14/06/04][19:10:13] [Mesanna]: we are working on it
[14/06/04][19:10:29] [Scribbles]: ty, third and chance reds will be able to get a city bonus?
[14/06/04][19:10:31] [Mesanna]: we are aware there are some issues
[14/06/04][19:10:56] [Kyronix]: That would require reds going into Trammel Cities
[14/06/04][19:11:07] [Kyronix]: Which isn’t going to happen. A buff for reds would be more feasible in our upcoming
[14/06/04][19:11:14] [Scribbles]: can we make the city bonus go away in fel then? for the blues?
[14/06/04][19:11:17] [Kyronix]: Vice vs Virtue system so stay tuned for updates as we roll that out
[14/06/04][19:11:30] [Scribbles]: its a little unfair that blues come into fell with a bonus reds cant have.
[14/06/04][19:12:02] [Scribbles]: 4th ever thought about putting a timer on 120 scrolls to reduce the farming and improve the econ
[14/06/04][19:12:13] [Scribbles]: same with minax arties
[14/06/04][19:12:26] [Mesanna]: so they decay after x amount of time of receiving them?
[14/06/04][19:12:30] [Scribbles]: yep
[14/06/04][19:12:33] [Scribbles]: so you cant stock pile them
[14/06/04][19:12:35] [Mesanna]: wow
[14/06/04][19:12:41] [Scribbles]: and get rid of data in your servers
[14/06/04][19:12:42] [Mesanna]: we would be skinned and fried
[14/06/04][19:13:09] [Mesanna]: that is a huge step
[14/06/04][19:13:23] [Scribbles]: much in UO is a huge step. :)
[14/06/04][19:13:24] [Mesanna]: one I do not feel would be taken lightly
[14/06/04][19:13:30] [Scribbles]: agreed
[14/06/04][19:13:49] [Scribbles]: just tired of the dead shard farming ruining the marketplace. thank you for your time.
[14/06/04][19:13:58] [Scribbles]: have a wonderful night.
[14/06/04][19:13:59] [Mesanna]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:14:03] [Kyronix]: See ya!
[14/06/04][19:14:06] [Leo]: Hiya guys.
[14/06/04][19:14:10] [Mesanna]: hi
[14/06/04][19:14:12] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[14/06/04][19:14:19] [Mesanna]: Leo how are you
[14/06/04][19:14:19] [Leo]: Scribbles already answered 2 of my questions
[14/06/04][19:14:26] [Mesanna]: ok
[14/06/04][19:14:26] [Leo]: I am well, how are you?
[14/06/04][19:14:33] [Mesanna]: not bad =)
[14/06/04][19:14:36] [Leo]: 😀
[14/06/04][19:14:44] [Leo]: But my one question is
[14/06/04][19:14:47] [Misk]: was that your question?
[14/06/04][19:14:49] [Misk]: oh, nm
[14/06/04][19:14:51] [Leo]: hehe
[14/06/04][19:15:01] [Leo]: Is there any way to recover lost whispering roses
[14/06/04][19:15:07] [Leo]: and personal bless deeds
[14/06/04][19:15:10] [Mesanna]: no I am afraid not
[14/06/04][19:15:20] [Mesanna]: personal bless deeds?
[14/06/04][19:15:24] [Leo]: Yes
[14/06/04][19:15:30] [Mesanna]: as in when you transferred it did not work again?
[14/06/04][19:15:39] [Mesanna]: or work period
[14/06/04][19:15:46] [Mesanna]: that we can fix
[14/06/04][19:15:50] [Leo]: Oh no, i meant a way to recover them
[14/06/04][19:15:55] [Mesanna]: nope sorry
[14/06/04][19:15:56] [Mesanna]: I wish
[14/06/04][19:16:04] [Leo]: As do I, Thanks guys!
[14/06/04][19:16:09] [Mesanna]: Thank you
[14/06/04][19:16:12] [Kyronix]: See ya
[14/06/04][19:16:17] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[14/06/04][19:16:17] [Tatiana Thorn]: *Curtsies*
[14/06/04][19:16:18] [Tatiana Thorn]: Good Evening
[14/06/04][19:16:24] [Mesanna]: Greetings Taliana
[14/06/04][19:16:26] [Tatiana Thorn]: i just had one small thought for an item
[14/06/04][19:16:29] [Tatiana Thorn]: *giggles*
[14/06/04][19:16:32] [Mesanna]: great
[14/06/04][19:16:35] [Mesanna]: I love ideas
[14/06/04][19:16:38] [Tatiana Thorn]: and most know it is sort of my pet project
[14/06/04][19:16:43] [Tatiana Thorn]: but an item
[14/06/04][19:16:51] [Tatiana Thorn]: that generates one random repair deed
[14/06/04][19:16:56] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh say once a week
[14/06/04][19:17:02] [Tatiana Thorn]: drop in a blank scroll
[14/06/04][19:17:05] [Tatiana Thorn]: maybe a tool
[14/06/04][19:17:09] [Tatiana Thorn]: get that repair……..
[14/06/04][19:17:12] [Mesanna]: like the bandages?
[14/06/04][19:17:13] [Tatiana Thorn]: just a thought
[14/06/04][19:17:22] [Mesanna]: but doesn’t that take away from Blacksmiths?
[14/06/04][19:17:25] [Tatiana Thorn]: a fountain of sorts
[14/06/04][19:17:35] [Tatiana Thorn]: *taps chin thinking*
[14/06/04][19:17:38] [Mesanna]: it removes a reason for the skill
[14/06/04][19:17:51] [Tatiana Thorn]: true……it could lead folks away from interacting…..
[14/06/04][19:17:55] [Mesanna]: true
[14/06/04][19:18:03] [Tatiana Thorn]: it was just a random thought
[14/06/04][19:18:06] [Tatiana Thorn]: *Curtsies*
[14/06/04][19:18:08] [Mesanna]: no I appreciate it
[14/06/04][19:18:09] [Tatiana Thorn]: thank you for your time
[14/06/04][19:18:16] [Mesanna]: keep thinking and give us your ideas
[14/06/04][19:18:20] [Xanadu]: Greetings
[14/06/04][19:18:28] [Mesanna]: Greetings Xanadu
[14/06/04][19:18:30] [Xanadu]: Mesanna, are you aware of the fact that certain players
[14/06/04][19:18:42] [Xanadu]: have chars with extra long names
[14/06/04][19:18:54] [Xanadu]: not attainable by normal players
[14/06/04][19:19:03] [Xanadu]: renamed by gm’s or something?
[14/06/04][19:19:12] [Xanadu]: and If so..are these legal?
[14/06/04][19:19:21] [Xanadu]: Cause to me its not really fair
[14/06/04][19:19:29] [Xanadu]: to everyone else that cant get that
[14/06/04][19:19:39] [Mesanna]: Well if they were renamed by old Seers or GM’s we are not going to fault the player
[14/06/04][19:19:44] [Mesanna]: that would not be fair
[14/06/04][19:19:45] [Xanadu]: *nods*
[14/06/04][19:19:51] [Mesanna]: I know the current GM’s will not do that
[14/06/04][19:19:56] [Mesanna]: they rename to SUE
[14/06/04][19:20:00] [Mesanna]: or something like that
[14/06/04][19:20:06] [Xanadu]: hehe
[14/06/04][19:20:19] [Xanadu]: Also..for a vet reward…we need rideable dragons 😛
[14/06/04][19:20:27] [Mesanna]: especially when they find a Mesanna
[14/06/04][19:20:39] [Xanadu]: *nods*
[14/06/04][19:20:42] [Mesanna]: there is actually an art conflict with that
[14/06/04][19:20:48] [Mesanna]: we would love to have big dragons
[14/06/04][19:20:55] [Xanadu]: ok ..bulls then..Yehaw!
[14/06/04][19:21:10] [Xanadu]: and thank you for your time :) We appreciate all you do
[14/06/04][19:21:16] [Mesanna]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:21:33] [Mesanna]: Greetings Dendi
[14/06/04][19:21:34] [Dendi]: Hello My lady and Lord of UO
[14/06/04][19:21:51] [Dendi]: i just wondering
[14/06/04][19:22:01] [Dendi]: is the email for V vs V
[14/06/04][19:22:08] [Dendi]: sent out
[14/06/04][19:22:13] [Dendi]: to those who is selected?
[14/06/04][19:22:25] [Dendi]: if not
[14/06/04][19:22:30] [Dendi]: any date on that?
[14/06/04][19:22:51] [Kyronix]: Yes, we’ve sent them all out. We are in the process of getting everyone signed up
[14/06/04][19:23:03] [Dendi]: ahh
[14/06/04][19:23:23] [Kyronix]: We only had a limited number of spots but that doesn’t mean we won’t need replacements
[14/06/04][19:23:24] [Dendi]: for japanese shard the GM support timezone is ?
[14/06/04][19:23:31] [Kyronix]: Whether people can’t participate for whatever reason
[14/06/04][19:23:42] [Dendi]: ahh cool
[14/06/04][19:23:48] [Dendi]: i did try to apply
[14/06/04][19:23:49] [Kyronix]: So we’ll keep all applications and if we need additional we’ll let you know!
[14/06/04][19:23:57] [Dendi]: great thank you
[14/06/04][19:24:22] [Mesanna]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:24:23] [Kyronix]: Thanks you!
[14/06/04][19:24:32] [Dendi]: thank
[14/06/04][19:24:38] [Mesanna]: Greetings Nails
[14/06/04][19:24:43] [Nails Warstein]: Hail and well met Mesanna
[14/06/04][19:25:09] [Nails Warstein]: Many friends of mine were wondering if and when you would still have another world tour?
[14/06/04][19:25:42] [Mesanna]: I stopped because so many people showed up it lagged everyone out
[14/06/04][19:25:52] [Mesanna]: if I could figure out how to do it I will start again
[14/06/04][19:26:16] [Nails Warstein]: Excellent. There are still some shards that do not have their own lantern to represent them as well.
[14/06/04][19:26:31] [Nails Warstein]: Anyhow Bennu, could you pull Pfloyd?
[14/06/04][19:26:34] [Mesanna]: I know and I am doing those
[14/06/04][19:26:47] [Mesanna]: umm why
[14/06/04][19:27:00] [Pfloyd]: Thanks
[14/06/04][19:27:12] [Nails Warstein]: About a month ago or so Pfloyd and I solved a Mystery
[14/06/04][19:27:31] [Mesanna]: do tell
[14/06/04][19:27:40] [Nails Warstein]: Discovered the lost treasures of the Crux Ansata Knights in the underwolrd.
[14/06/04][19:28:11] [Nails Warstein]: It required decoding a cypher, and surviving riddles.
[14/06/04][19:28:13] [Mesanna]: If you are asking about titles
[14/06/04][19:28:16] [Mesanna]: get in line
[14/06/04][19:28:19] [Mesanna]: after this
[14/06/04][19:28:28] [Mesanna]: stand close
[14/06/04][19:28:33] [Mesanna]: 2 more questions
[14/06/04][19:28:36] [Mesanna]: and we are finished
[14/06/04][19:28:49] [Nails Warstein]: Alright just place us where you need us, and thank you!
[14/06/04][19:29:03] [Mesanna]: please move out via transporter
[14/06/04][19:29:08] [Mesanna]: thanks
[14/06/04][19:29:14] [Wraith]: Hail
[14/06/04][19:29:14] [Mesanna]: Hi Wraith
[14/06/04][19:29:15] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[14/06/04][19:29:26] [Wraith]: mine is kinda a 2 parter
[14/06/04][19:29:45] [Wraith]: Is there any future plans on making wrestling a viable combat skill?
[14/06/04][19:30:11] [Mesanna]: we have not started working on changing skills at this time
[14/06/04][19:30:23] [Mesanna]: when we will we will open it up to you guys
[14/06/04][19:30:26] [Mesanna]: for input
[14/06/04][19:30:38] [Mesanna]: if you want changes you should already have ideas right?
[14/06/04][19:31:01] [Wraith]: a few. Like a change to the horrific beast spell and the enchant type spells
[14/06/04][19:31:51] [Wraith]: second question would be, is there a way to remove the range part of the poison spell in pvm?
[14/06/04][19:32:12] [Mesanna]: you don’t want to give the mobs a chance?
[14/06/04][19:32:41] [Wraith]: well, we have the poison fields which do the same already, but removing the range would make
[14/06/04][19:33:00] [Wraith]: fire fields more viable for sustained damage
[14/06/04][19:33:41] [Mesanna]: I can see them backed on skill
[14/06/04][19:33:57] [Mesanna]: based
[14/06/04][19:33:59] [Mesanna]: but
[14/06/04][19:34:06] [Mesanna]: we can talk about it
[14/06/04][19:34:30] [Mesanna]: no promises
[14/06/04][19:34:34] [Mesanna]: we will discuss it
[14/06/04][19:34:42] [Wraith]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:34:47] [Mesanna]: thank you
[14/06/04][19:35:02] [Wraith]: *licks mesanna and runs off*
[14/06/04][19:35:09] [Desaa]: hello
[14/06/04][19:35:20] [Mesanna]: yuck
[14/06/04][19:35:21] [Kyronix]: Hello
[14/06/04][19:35:33] [Desaa]: i was wondering is there any thoughts of adding anti cheat?
[14/06/04][19:35:55] [Mesanna]: that is an ongoing battle
[14/06/04][19:36:09] [Mesanna]: as it is in every game
[14/06/04][19:36:13] [Mesanna]: we just have been around longer
[14/06/04][19:36:21] [Mesanna]: we are always trying to fix cheating
[14/06/04][19:36:21] [Desaa]: i dont much care for scriters that get all the loot, and aids them in pvp
[14/06/04][19:36:49] [Desaa]: ok and second
[14/06/04][19:37:17] [Desaa]: i was wondering has there ever been any talk to making a mod like mage weap for resists that dexers can use?
[14/06/04][19:37:25] [Mesanna]: Last person is Jody for the night
[14/06/04][19:37:31] [EM Bennu]: *nods*
[14/06/04][19:37:43] [Desaa]: seens kinda unfair mages get an item that adds 110 skill in defence
[14/06/04][19:37:53] [Desaa]: but dexers cant prevent mana vap or para
[14/06/04][19:38:00] [Desaa]: vamp*
[14/06/04][19:38:06] [Mesanna]: its an idea
[14/06/04][19:38:17] [Mesanna]: we will look at it for a future item
[14/06/04][19:38:25] [Desaa]: so never gonna happen then?
[14/06/04][19:38:34] [Mesanna]: did I just say we would talk about it
[14/06/04][19:38:43] [Mesanna]: I did not say it was not going to happen

[14/06/04][19:42:33] [Kyronix]: Like a person could…fly?
[14/06/04][19:42:36] [Mesanna]: you do mean fly right
[14/06/04][19:42:43] [Deathangel]: yes
[14/06/04][19:42:57] [Mesanna]: I highly doubt that would happen
[14/06/04][19:43:07] [Deathangel]: awww
[14/06/04][19:43:29] [Mesanna]: the art requirements alone would cause my Artist to quit
[14/06/04][19:43:35] [Mesanna]: lol
[14/06/04][19:43:49] [Deathangel]: how about turning the undead
[14/06/04][19:44:11] [Mesanna]: that is possible

[14/06/04][19:44:22] [Deathangel]: Awesome

[14/06/04][19:45:53] [Jody Highroller]: I have an in-depth question to ask you.
[14/06/04][19:46:23] [Jody Highroller]: Do you ever think a game build on so much corruption, will ever be appealing to new players?
[14/06/04][19:46:49] [Mesanna]: yes I do
[14/06/04][19:46:53] [Jody Highroller]: How so?
[14/06/04][19:47:06] [Mesanna]: why would we work like we do if we did not believe in the game
[14/06/04][19:47:19] [Mesanna]: why would we spend our evenings on our own time to talk to you guys
[14/06/04][19:47:38] [Mesanna]: We are coming up with ideas for improvements all the time
[14/06/04][19:47:39] [Jody Highroller]: Why would a new person want to play beside a person, whom does not work for their stuff
[14/06/04][19:48:00] [Jody Highroller]: with scripts
[14/06/04][19:48:01] [Jody Highroller]: etc
[14/06/04][19:48:31] [Mesanna]: look I am not going to sit here and argue this point with you
[14/06/04][19:48:38] [Mesanna]: I know for a fact we have no people all the time
[14/06/04][19:48:46] [Jody Highroller]: ok, ill just send money to your ems paypal
[14/06/04][19:48:46] [Mesanna]: and we have players that love to help new players

[14/06/04][19:50:48] [Leo]: Thanks
[14/06/04][19:50:52] [Mesanna]: I would rather do that than create new ones

[14/06/04][19:51:12] [Mesanna]: what
[14/06/04][19:51:37] [EM Bennu]: I was just wondering, discounting the seahorse mount fiasco… if there was any possibility of a
[14/06/04][19:51:45] [EM Bennu]: Constructable Hot Air Balloon?
[14/06/04][19:51:52] [Mesanna]: Stop!
[14/06/04][19:51:54] [Kyronix]: That’s a fantastic idea
[14/06/04][19:52:02] [EM Bennu]: See! Kryonix agrees!
[14/06/04][19:52:03] [Mesanna]: Have you been talking to Kyronix
[14/06/04][19:52:11] [EM Bennu]: Hot Air Balloons are so very Ultima.
[14/06/04][19:52:13] [Mesanna]: CAuse he has wanted it for 2 years now
[14/06/04][19:52:13] [Kyronix]: Hot Air Balloons!
[14/06/04][19:52:16] [Kyronix]: Yipppeee!
[14/06/04][19:52:28] [EM Bennu]: They should take a LOT of effort to build…
[14/06/04][19:52:30] [EM Bennu]: Just sain.
[14/06/04][19:52:33] [EM Bennu]: Sayin.
[14/06/04][19:52:35] [Mesanna]: Bennu
[14/06/04][19:52:42] [EM Bennu]: *is in trouble*
[14/06/04][19:52:45] [Mesanna]: have I killed you lately?
[14/06/04][19:52:51] [EM Bennu]: yes, when I dyed you pink.
[14/06/04][19:52:55] [EM Bennu]: <3

Transcript for the Developer Meet & Greet – Legends 30Apr2014

May 01, 2014 By: Flair Category: Community News, Legends News

Mesanna: lets begin
EM Avalon: Arakad you there ?
Mesanna: hi Arakad
Arakad Thorn: hey!
Arakad Thorn: wow … ok
EM Avalon: *smile*
Arakad Thorn: Just a few questions about current content
Arakad Thorn: will there be any improvements or additions for the High Sea’s? customize ships, more deed areas etc?
Arakad Thorn: and the second question would be any new recipes for the distillery? Its been pretty lack in comparison to others of its like
Mesanna: as far as adding more ships
Mesanna: we are not looking at that at this time
Mesanna: sorry what do you mean by deed areas?
Arakad Thorn: what about improving the ones we have now? Such as armor additions [perhaps slows the ship but makes it stronger]
Arakad Thorn: Deed areas such as the Britanian ship, it has two areas and only one square each
Arakad Thorn: perhaps make the cannon slots also areas to place deeded items or able to lock items down on the surface of the ship?
Mesanna: We will add those to our future ideas
Mesanna: we do want to add to the high seas and make it better
Arakad Thorn: there was an ammo idea as well *actually from a free shard* – they made a Snare ammo – that slowed down ships such as a paralyze spell
Arakad Thorn: I don’t mean to babble a lot of questions, these have been on my mind for a while now. And appologize.
Mesanna: Thank you for your comments
Mesanna: thats what this is for
Mesanna: to listen to your ideas
Mesanna: what you would like to see
Arakad Thorn: and the distillery? is there any plans to add more recipes?
Mesanna: always possible
EM Avalon: *grins*
Mesanna: we all like to drink =P
EM Avalon: like Coffee?
Arakad Thorn: *laughs* I was thinking drinks similar to the fish pies
Arakad Thorn: and coffee .. we need coffee
EM Avalon: *smile*
Arakad Thorn: ok! well then … thank you for your time!
Kyronix : Thanks!
Vino Jack: greetings
Vino Jack: from the line cannot see/hear anything so not know what been aske/told so far
EM Avalon: sorry sleeping at the switch
Bleak: Hi
Mesanna: Greetings
Kyronix : Hello
Misk: Test!
Mesanna says: What is on your mind Vino
Vino Jack says: have 4 items on list from town and guild
Vino Jack: having mouse oproblems
EM Avalon: *hides the cat*
Vino Jack: Stackable cooking ingredients such as for fish pies Samuels Sauce and Mentos stuff
Vino Jack: *i resemble that remark*
EM Avalon: *smile*
Vino Jack: Any word on if MyUO being re-worked?
Mesanna: Yes MyUO is being worked on
Mesanna: finally!
Vino Jack: yeah
Vino Jack: Variable city trade deal costs perhaps based on number citizens of all city on shard
Kyronix : And we are adding new stackables to the list where we can
Kyronix : rather than lower the cost we are adding new ways for governors to organize so they can
Kyronix : raise funds
Kyronix : as well as taking some monies from the sales of banners and titles
Vino Jack: will stop there and allow others to speak
Vino Jack: thank you
Kyronix : and a new traders quest that is being worked on right now
Mesanna: thank you
Kyronix : Thanks for your qeustion!
Mesanna: Have a good evening
Vino Jack: Mesanna: yes sir
Mesanna: Hi Zath
Zath Stoneworker: Good evening.
Bleak: Hello
Zath Stoneworker: My question is regarding the new player experience.
Mesanna: The one we have not done yet?
Mesanna: or the current one?
Zath Stoneworker: As it stands now, it is quite dire on people who are trying to start the game for the first time.
Mesanna: agreed
Zath Stoneworker: They get very poor equipment, and there is no good hunting grounds to teach them the basics of the game while rewarding them.
You see: stone pavers
Zath Stoneworker: In a way to increase the attach rate of trial accounts. I’d like to know what is being planned to address this issue now that we will soon be at stean.
Mesanna: First let me say we can only do so much with the team we have
Mesanna: we do have a good plan for a new player experience but we have something in front of it first
Mesanna: UO is 17 years old
Mesanna: we might get a few new players but we will probably get returning players faster
Mesanna: either way they need to be re introduced to UO
Mesanna: Every year it changes
Mesanna: and seems to be a new game if you are away
Mesanna: we as a team have alot of good ideas
Mesanna: we want to do so much
Mesanna: and have some really good ideas
Mesanna: but we can only so so much at a time
Zath Stoneworker: I understand. I also manage projects, and I know that you have time limitations.
Mesanna: but a new player experience is on our list to do
Mesanna: We want new and returning players
Mesanna: trust me
Zath Stoneworker: I’d just like to see them having to rely less on veterans to equip them so they will have a good time when trying the game again.
Mesanna: We all know new players have no idea what to do next
Mesanna: how to get around
Mesanna: where to go
Mesanna: where to travel etc
Mesanna: our idea in this is to guide them around the world
Mesanna: not keep them in one area
Mesanna: then let them go
Mesanna: not baby them but let them earn what they need
Zath Stoneworker: I am glad to hear that it will be addressed. My next and last question is about resource gathering. I am a rather new player myself, being around for only almost 3 years, and in that time I had a very hard time gathering resources.
Zath Stoneworker: Ore and lumber, mostly. Mining seems to not pay the time you invest on it, and getting enough to fill BODS can prove to be a challenge.
Mesanna: Then you are going to love what Kyronix is going to tell you
Kyronix : Well you’ll be able to get some much better equipment compared to what is out there now
Kyronix : Right now, in development, we have changes that remove the old loot generation
Kyronix : And replace it with what many refer to as “Shame Style” loo t
Kyronix : And rolling that out globally
EM Avalon: *smile*
Zath Stoneworker: That will be nice indeed.
Kyronix : We are very excited for it
Kyronix : *grins*
Mesanna: thank you Zath
Bleak: great questions
Zath Stoneworker: One very last thing that came in general chat. Is there a chance to see a gather all button for botanny? It takes 225 clicks to empty a 3×3 raised bed.
Mesanna: that is a pain in the butt isn’t it
Mesanna: we will look into it
EM Avalon: oh on so many levels its a pain
Zath Stoneworker: A simple for loop at the gather seed and gather resource would solve that. :)
Mesanna: Are you an engineer?
Zath Stoneworker: And with this, I take my leave. Thanks for hosting this meeting.
Zath Stoneworker: I have a bachelor in computer science, so, sorta.
Mesanna: Thank you Zath
Zath Stoneworker: Nice to have you around. I will leave the spot for the next in line.
Kyronix : Thank you for your question!
Mesanna: Thank you
Mesanna: Hi Raven
Kyronix : Hello Raven
Raven Hawk: Can we have coffee beans? The cooks can brew it and the tinkers can make the coffee machines
Raven Hawk: Hello all
Bleak: Hi Raven
Mesanna: we need big coffee pots
EM Avalon: yes we do!
Mesanna: I will add that to our wish list
Mesanna: how about that
Raven Hawk: thank you
EM Avalon: *moves it to the top of the wish list*
EM Avalon: *grins*
Mesanna: coffee beans to grow and coffee pots to brew
Mesanna: your next xmas present
Mesanna: a coffee pot
Mesanna: lol
Kyronix : *chuckles*
Raven Hawk: I have another question:
Raven Hawk: Could you please change the default llocation changing to “nothing” after having been on a boat?
Raven Hawk: Did I word that right?
Kyronix : Could you be more specific?
Mesanna: do you mean if you get kicked off?
Raven Hawk: Okay
Raven Hawk: Maybe it’s just in EC
Raven Hawk: I set a default location on my rune book
Raven Hawk: I can use it over and over again as long as I don’t go on a ship
Raven Hawk: After I go on a ship, the default is set back to nothing
Mesanna: that is a bug
Bleak: I will look into this
Raven Hawk: and I have to reset the default location
Misk: that should be pretty simple to fix!
Raven Hawk: thanks
Kyronix : Thanks for your questions!
Raven Hawk: That’s all I have
Mesanna: thats for the bug also =)
Raven Hawk: thanks
Mesanna: thank you Raven
Tika W Majere: Hi! <3 I’m so glad you came to visit! It’s really nice to see you in game form!

Mesanna: We do not have any plans to raise it higher than that
Mesanna: at this time
Sakura-X: But, Power Scroll is no value now
Mesanna: so we need to come up with a trade in system
Sakura-X: I think it is not good situation
Mesanna: like tokuno dyes system for scrolls =)
Misk: you can turn them into points with Cleanup Britannia…

ARAGORN: I did finally get to see your state of uo address on youtube..very nicely done
Mesanna: we plan to have those more often
ARAGORN: you mentioned on there about gold going away and going to a ledger system?
ARAGORN: can u explain that in more detail plz?
Mesanna: Actually not yet
Mesanna: we do not have it all figured out in detail yet
Mesanna: but as soon as we do you guys will know
Mesanna: I hate to say something and it be untrue
ARAGORN: can it be summarized at all? maybe concept?
You see: stone pavers
Kyronix : Our high level goals are to basically make large amounts of gold easier to store
Kyronix : trade
Kyronix : and so on
Mesanna: it would be account tracked
Mesanna: gold will still be in the game but not in the large quanities like it is now
Mesanna: no checks
Mesanna: which frees up so much space
ARAGORN: very interesting idea
Mesanna: and look at all the atm vendors we will do away with =P
Misk: you will still be able to have gold for deco purposes
ARAGORN: oh my bank manager will have to go on unemployment..darn
Mesanna: lol
EM Avalon: haha
Mesanna: we hate to put anything out of business
EM Avalon: unless its a lawyer
ARAGORN: hehe she’ll get over it..thats the price of business
ARAGORN: one more question is any future plans for invasions? like the one that happened back in 2004?
ARAGORN: in britain
Mesanna: Kyronix
You see: stone pavers
Kyronix : Never know what nefarious types will spring up in an effort to disrupt our peaceful cities
EM Avalon: *chuckle*
Kyronix : We definitely want to add a little flair to invasions like we did with the Minax invasions
Kyronix : Make them more fun and dynamic
ARAGORN: :) i look forward to it thank yall for your time :) *bows*
Kyronix : Thank you
Kyronix : *grins*
Mesanna: Our time is coming to an end we will answer one question from each person in line
DevilsOwn: evenin all and thanks for coming to Legends!
Mesanna: Greetings
Kyronix : Hello!
Bleak: Hello
DevilsOwn: my question is about high res art project – it was slated for possibly this year
DevilsOwn: how is it going?
Mesanna: we are working on it
Mesanna: we hope to have our first pass out later this year
DevilsOwn: housing tiles slowing you down, yes?
Misk: it has not made it to QA yet, so not super quick
Mesanna: so many tiles
DevilsOwn: thank you for your time, I look forward to it,, and possibly new housing tiles
Kyronix : Thanks for the question!
Mesanna: Hi Arakad
Arakad Thorn: Lo’ I tremble before the dark lady … I risk my life again
Mesanna: lol
Arakad Thorn: I am in contact via ICQ to some who couldn’t make it tonight
Arakad Thorn: one of them wants to know about Morph earrings, they allow humans to wear / use elf items. Any plans on including gargoyles to that list?
Misk: not at this time, and honestly probably not ever
Arakad Thorn: Another asks a good question about Magery spell: Polymorph. Every magic brought out gives alternate forms special abilities
Arakad Thorn: Why not improve Polymorph, as Magery seems to be falling behind
Misk: magery offers diversity
Mesanna: We have been looking at so many other things we have not even though about updating magery
Mesanna: to be honest with you
Arakad Thorn: true, Necromancy has alternate forms that allow different advantages/disadvantages. I believe the question is – will you improve on that spell with the new content? New forms to chose from. And give those forms the appropriate updates
Mesanna: we should do a magery mastery
Mesanna: and you are asking more than 1 question
Arakad Thorn: *sorry – you can kill me for free later*
Mesanna: but I can kill you for free now =P
EM Avalon: eek
EM Avalon: quick run
Mesanna: lol
Arakad Thorn: *laughs*
Kyronix : Thanks!
Caelyr: hello!

Kyronix : Greetings!
Bleak: Hi Caelyr
Caelyr: you’ve mentioned at times that you all have a lot on your plates
Mesanna: always
Caelyr: and recently asked for ideas on new rewards, etc
Mesanna: yes sir
Caelyr: would you consider broadening that to allow for user generated content?
Mesanna: define that
Caelyr: such as art assets and other things which would consume precious hours
Caelyr: perhaps ideas or content could be voted for democratically
Caelyr: steam, for example, has its workshops
Mesanna: this is true
Mesanna: its something that we can look into
Mesanna: since we are Broadsword and not EA
Mesanna: that option is actually open to us
Mesanna: so I will not say no

Agatha: Hi. – With the upcoming Vice vs. Virture, are Faction “Arties” being kept? Or will players need to
Mesanna: hi Agatha
Agatha: adjust their suits in advance?
Misk: similar artifacts will be made available
Agatha: Some of the mods on faction artifacts can essentially make or break a suit, which is why I asked.
Misk: with identical or potentially better stats
Kyronix : We aren’t interested in forcing people to redo the hard work they put into their suits
Kyronix : That’s no fun :(
Agatha: Ah yes, that was my concern Kyronix.
Agatha: Thank you all for your time, have an excellent night!
Kyronix : Thanks!
Mesanna: I was on the team when they first put in Factions
Mesanna: it was broken then
Mesanna: I was on the team when they tried to fix factions
Mesanna: it was worse after that
Mesanna: everytime it just seems to get worse
Mesanna: time for a change
EM Avalon: *nods*
