Publish 32.1 Updates and Bug Fixes

UO Team 17 May 2005 00:00:00 EST

Publish 32.1 is a mini-publish that contains a number of game updates and bug fixes. This article contains an updated summary of the game improvements that will come about with Publish 32. Publish 32.1 is a mini-publish that is now running on the TC2 Publish 32 shard, and contains the following changes, fixes and additions:

This list is subject to change before it is published to production shards.

  • Melee and Archery swing rates have both been lowered by 0.5 seconds. This means players will swing or shoot faster than they do now. (Note: The minimum swing/shoot speed was not changed in Publish 32.1. It is currently set so that you cannot swing/shoot faster than once per 1.5 seconds. We plan to reduce this to the previous cap of once per 1.25 seconds in Publish 33.)
  • Archery move delay reduced to 0.25 seconds.
  • Player status bars will no longer appear orange while a player is cursed.
  • Smelting items made from colored ore will now return the correct type of ingot, regardless of the presence of iron ingots in the player’s backpack.
  • Players can once again access multiple plant gumps simultaneously.
  • Characters will no longer become permanently frozen if they cast a spell either while logging in or logging out.
  • The Lost Apprentice corpse will now spawn correctly, allowing players to finish the Hag quest.
  • The Naturalist quest will now progress when players explore Solen egg chambers.
  • Fixed an exploit that we’re not going to provide details on, however players can rest assured that it is now fixed.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause server backups not to occur when they were supposed to. Server has been properly chastised and will now produce backups as expected.
