Developer Meet And Greet from 2016-03-07

This meeting was held in English. It was logged by Larisa[1].

Mesanna ok Lets begin
Mesanna hi Pallis
Pallis hi, im following up on the talisman prot and killer properties
Mesanna from the last meet and greet?
Pallis Yes, my testing shows they only work on the one creature they name, so an orc protection works just against the orc itself and so on, is this what you want it to be?
Mesanna I have to be honest since the last meet and greet when this was brought up, we have been busy getting this publish out the door and QA has not had time to do any testing on it
Pallis no problem just wanted to tell you what i found out tyvm
Mesanna Thank you
Mesanna Hi Rose
Rose hello, i have a quality of mining wish
Mesanna ok?
Rose could you make all the ore the same size instead of 4 sizes?
Mesanna umm why
Rose it takes four times longer to unload and smelt. takes up more space also
Mesanna it all smelts
Rose and can blackrock be bigger? maybe..ty
Mesanna Honestly we will have to see if there is a reason for the smaller ores before any changes are done
Mesanna Remmy
Remmy Soulblade could you possibly put healers in fel dungeons
Mesanna why?
Remmy Soulblade since i cant recall i die alot when rl interfers
Mesanna don't you think it makes it to easy
Remmy Soulblade come back to dead toon running to a healer in an unknown location?
Mesanna this game has gone 19 years without them
Remmy Soulblade or i dont understand
Mesanna we would honestly have to have a discussion about this
Remmy Soulblade actually i used to be able to recall out when i had to leave game in those 19 yrs but ok np
Mesanna Hi Mirime
Mirime dont know if this is possible, but wanted to ask if for 20 year anniversary if you could repeat events from the past as kinda a highlight reel of uo.
Mesanna what events are you talking about? how about this, send me a list of the events you would like to see, there have been a lot. I would like to know the ones that made the most impression.
Mirime ok certainly, ty
Mesanna most welcome, good idea though
Drakelord Hail Mlady Welcome to Sonoma, Welcome Bleak and Misk as well
Mesanna Greetings
Bleak Hello
Misk thank you
Drakelord two and I will be done, Please make a moongate on Sonoma at the Brit Bank in Tram. Can we get our skill cap set another 100 points higher to 820, thank you I honor thee
Mesanna should have been in the original design
Drakelord true I screw up
Mesanna and we have talked about raising it but we are still talking about future changes
Drakelord nods
Mesanna we will never go up 100 points though I can tell you that
Drakelord I see ok
Mesanna way to many balancing issues
Drakelord did not hurt to ask
Mesanna so true!
Drakelord thank you
Mesanna most welcome
Drakelord farewell
Mesanna Have a good evening Drakelord
Mesanna hi Joyce
joyce hi is the bag drop for navery broken
Mesanna bag drop?
joyce yes
Mesanna what do you mean by bag drop? loot drop?
joyce most time navery gives bag drop but lately nothing
Mesanna ok you are talking the loot in general right? no clue what a bag drop is that's what I am trying to figure out
EM Willow Give us an example of a bag drop joyce
Agnes Wanderfar I think she means special items dropping driectly in pack instead of on corpse
joyce when you fight navery she give loot in your bag
Mesanna we will look into it to see if something has changed
joyce ok like tangle navery eyes
Mesanna Joyce no one else has complained but we will look into it to see if we can see any issues, thank you.
Mesanna hi Darkstar
Darkstar Hi, Can you get the spells fixed so that you always get the cursor ?
Mesanna I will let Bleak answer this one, client?
Darkstar 2d
Bleak Which spells?
Darkstar invis, healing ones, rc
Mesanna you are not getting a target curser?
Darkstar not always
Misk are you casting via spell icon or via macro?
Darkstar both
Mesanna can you send us an email as to what you are doing when it does happen so we can reproduce it easier?
Darkstar spawn hot key set in options for most thank you
Mesanna Greetings Sticky
Mr Sticky Finger evening my lady. so got a couple for you tonight. Split skill trees / 8th char slot, longer decay on boats and shared bank box
Mesanna boat decay we agree, umm skill tree,we have brought this subject up several times. main and sub skills right?
Mr Sticky Finger ya put things that dont afect game balance can be learned and wont take the skill stuff
Mesanna hrm I will put it on the list to talk about it but Bleak would have to answer that one. and the shared bank box
Mr Sticky Finger ya shared bank box for chars so if you play multiple shards and cant place a house you will be able to transfer from on char to another with out the drop item and pray you get it before some one grabs it from you
Mesanna wait you mean shared across shards?
Mr Sticky Finger ya
Mesanna can't share it across shards
Mr Sticky Finger maybe one bank box for all chars on that shard not cross shard
Mesanna on same shard maybe. ok just making sure I understand your request
Mr Sticky Finger but so that instead of a bank box that holds 125 items per char one bank box that would hold 1000 items and be accessed by all chars on that shard
Mesanna we will talk about it and see how bad we could exploit it. if we can't we will see about putting it in
Mr Sticky Finger cool and thank you
Mesanna welcome
Mr Sticky Finger have a great evening
Mesanna you also
Shaggy hiya
Mesanna Hi Shaggy
Shaggy any chance of getting legacy tamables? like silver steeds?
Mesanna not silver steed thats on siege only
Shaggy that was a quick no....
Mesanna sorry
Shaggy why? we have nightmares, dark steeds, dreadmares
Mesanna we are talking about redoing pets making the old ones valuable again
Shaggy how are you looking at fixing taming? it once was the best char to play
Mesanna we do not have it finalized but it is something we have talked about and are going to do. When we do we will let you know. But I agree the old nightmares, the old WW's I am sure some of you still have. I know I do, that just sit in the stables. I would love to be able to use them again
Shaggy yeah we just use whatever the newest powerful tamable
Mesanna yep we know
Shaggy with a smaller server like this getting a group together to go kill something isnt that easy. a sampire is more powerful than a tamer....
Mesanna yes but you have to understand that we can not develop for individual shards so yes it does make it harder on the smaller ones
Mesanna anything else?
Shaggy nope thats it take it easy
Mesanna thank you keep an eye on the newsletter
Sammie hello
Mesanna hi Sammie
Sammie i was just wanting to see if we are able to fix britain turn in points to shard bound like gold is now.
Mesanna wait wait, you want them to be account bound or shard bound?
Sammie account so even if i turn in on one char all char can use um
Mesanna ok thats different than shard bound just wanted to make sure
Sammie ok sorry
Mesanna its ok. Bleak is going to have to look into it to see if its even possible
Sammie i have like 4 char with 100k points and would love to add um together
Mesanna right now we are working on a in game store for our next publish so I will not have an answer for you till at least the next newsletter
Sammie ok thanks for letting me ask
Mesanna we will talk about it and see if it can be done
Sammie ok thanks
Mesanna have a good evening and thank you
Sammie good evening to ya
Cinderella have you considered making a book to hold recipes? i hate throwing them away when i don't have room for them
Mesanna nope we haven't actually. ok so question, are you wanting a book that holds the recipe for storage?
Cinderella yes like we do for the scrolls and for primers if possible
Mesanna thats possible good suggestion
Cinderella i always keep them in case someone needs them, thank you
Mesanna welcome
Rose the mystic npc's in ter mur any chance the 2 that respawn daily could be anchored?
Mesanna hi Rose
Rose hi sorry forgot to ask
Mesanna will look into it thats not hard to do
Rose they reset all the progress buiold up in the buying so if im at 999 goes to 10 again at server up. ty
Mesanna yes, welcome
Mr Sticky Finger ok so the pet question gave me a thought
Mesanna forget something?
Mr Sticky Finger tailoring for a shard would not wor cause people would just shard transfer them but to address the idea of stronger pets on smaller shards would be to have a buff
Mesanna sorry we can't do that
Mr Sticky Finger the pet system could see how many are on
Mesanna it would have to be the same across all shards
Mr Sticky Finger and boost to compinsate based on how many were on at the time so str of pets would adjust based on how many players are in the area
Mesanna that is a balancing nightmare
Mr Sticky Finger probably and i know it would be odd to track your pet when it changes stats based on whats in the area but was just a thought
Mesanna I get your idea but the time to do that would be so long
Mr Sticky Finger anyways ty
Mesanna welcome, thanks for the input
Elviria have you thought of making binders for the masteries,like the scroll binders for power scolls
Mesanna no not yet. I can say right now we probably would not do it on the primers, the number would be huge since they spawn so fast
Elviria thank you for your time
Mesanna thank you
Shaggy hiya again
Mesanna hi Shaggy
Shaggy any chance on a legacy server?
Mesanna not at this time
Shaggy that has been UO stance since publish 16
Mesanna we know everyone wants one
Mesanna anything else Shaggy
Shaggy is that how you treat people who play? you know people have been asking for this for years i came back after 7 years
Mesanna a legacy shard?
Shaggy because i wanted to play this game again. yes a legacy server
Mesanna its not that easy
Shaggy its not?
Mesanna no its not, stripping all the code is not easy.
Shaggy i can log into one right now on razor, its not a the same as a UO server but it can be done. There are back ups for the old servers.
Mesanna no there isn't, we would have to strip it down.
Shaggy maybe not with you
Mesanna OK guys please remember to sign up for the newsletter hope to see you guys send in screenshots
Bleak Thanks for coming out!
Misk Thank you for having us Sonoma!
Mesanna Thank you Sonoma for having us, answers to some of these questions will be in the next newsletter for the ones we need to talk about first
Agnes Wanderfar When can we expect the next newsletter?
Mesanna I try to get them out the first week of each month
Agnes Wanderfar OK thank you
Mesanna night guys, thank you again.
