U-VII was the one that got me OFF Ultima entirely.

Hated all that missing keys and stuff.. and scripted play.  U-VIII... * sigh *

ZOMG you guys are still playing UO?

I used to play on Greatlakes, once upon a time.

Man that game was so bugged, I played from launch till about 1 1/2 years in.
After I stole a keep and a tower, as well as looted almost 2/3s of the houses
on the server (Ghost+Rez and Horse+sacks+gate bugs) I kinda got bored.

Was logging in once a week or so to refresh my house collection, got lazy then
missed a week and 6 of my 10 properties decayed. Got bored and quit playing.

I macroed my guy to 99.0 Magic resist in wind back when it was impossible
to raise naturally, lol. Used to be EZ Macros online.. 24/7 macro mining
through walls in my large brick, lol..


Last I logged in about 2 1/2 years ago, I still had 800+ diamonds which I duped
way back when in my bank, lol.

When I recently saw they were selling ready made characters I just kinda
shrugged and laughed.

Well, I guess they more or less have fixed some of these things and things are more balanced now.

Pip plays it more often than I do so he would know better. Eitherway I ain't gonna bother with WoW or some of the rest of the stuff whereby some of them are really nothing more but just another attempt to push the graphics and system specs so you would get another system. Tongue

Yup, have been playing since launch, 8 years + and counting Cheesy
My old Diablo I guild all went over to GL, but it was lagging so badly for me that I never played there. House looting was really crazy back then. I built a tower, sealed off a courtyard with 3 other houses and built a smithy's workshop on the roof. No one managed to break into the penthouse, actually no-one managed to break into the courtyard either Cheesy

They fixed the break-in bugs and also made 1 more improvement - you can lockdown furniture in your house and designate containers to be secure. Only people that you have designated can access these containers. Oh, they have done away with house keys totally, so no more worries with losing the keys.

Graphics can't hold a candle to those newer games like Lineage, but it offers the widest array of things you can do. Hack and slash-for-experience type games like Diablo is very good theraphy for those times you just feel like killing everything in your path Cheesy But it can only last you so long...

The other thing I like about it is that there are no class based restrictions or experience/level progress, you just train whichever skills you want and find a way to fit them into the 700 points cap. If I want my dragon tamer/warrior to shoot arrows at whatever my tamed dragon/white wyrm/rune beetle is fighting, I just concencrate on those skills Smiley

Ahh! The good old days! I also remember the Wind magic resist trick! Of course at that time, skills like magic resist was neigh impossible to train to 100. Prior to the Wind trick, it was the Jhelom training pits, and after that, blade spirits Cheesy

I was lazy and used to lure and trap liches in my tower for resist training. Now, they have a system that will track whether you have gained in a particular skill for a period of time, if not, you will get a gain the next time you use that skill. The higher your current skill, the longer that period is. So that's a good way to ensure that you will always get a gain.

They fixed most of the bugs, so right now it's mainly balancing the warrior and mages. Still, I like to be able to do stuff like looking for the just go mining, do non combat quests when I don't feel like fighting anything Smiley

Haha. If I had know you played it I would have given you my account. I let decay 1 large + 2 small houses (tower footprint) on Hokuto; a Tower on Baja, a large house on Moonglow Island each on Europa and two other servers I forgot.

I sold a castle on Formosa way back when. The bastard still owes me money.

In circa 1997/8 I began the game as a miner, but after a few digs I gave up because I was too impatient to wield a sword and start killing monsters.

The Ultima music though is something magical. I still have mp3 and midis from the games. I love stones.mp3

Hey, you are right, the music is very good too, I'd been playing with the sound off for so long that I forgot how good it was.

nocturne : aiyah, too bad...nm, next time if they have another free activation for old players I inform you. If don't like it nm, can pass me any rare stuff u have Smiley You have no idea how much things like wigs go for now since they don't spawn anymore.

Ahh, 90 day gametime codes? I've been buying them from tec-drome actually, $45 Cheesy.

Nocturne, you have a code that you want to sell off or do you have lobang?

Got lobang. I think I can match $45, but my supplier out of stock now.

Any other original games anyone wants?

Deal. I will have 4. So that settles a year's worth of pay time. Tongue

How much is Civ 4 going at for you?
