  Spirit Speak, Spirit Energy and You
Posted by: Expo - 01-24-2018, 02:13 AM - Forum: Player Guides & Macros - Replies (1)

Spirit Speak - Allows the player to see player ghosts and understand their speech. Players can purchase Empty Spirit Stones from NPC Mage Shopkeepers. Cast the Magic Lock spell to turn it into a standard Spirit Stone, which allows it to absorb Spirit Energy from corpses. These Charged Spirit Stones can then be used to increase the power of a player's summon spells.

  Creature Targeting (Aggro/Threat)
Posted by: jaedan - 01-22-2018, 10:59 PM - Forum: Player Guides & Macros - No Replies

Creatures decide who to target by selecting the highest priority target from available targets every few seconds. Priority is calculated as follows:

1) The last chosen target (i.e. the creature's current target) is given 3 points.
2) Tamed/summoned pets set to attack/order/patrol mode are given 3 points.
3) Targets are awarded between 1 and 5 points based on proximity, with immediately adjacent targets awarded 5 points.

How much damage you do, how ugly your face is, how loud you are shouting, etc. doesn't matter.

It is not currently known how ties are broken, although I speculate that it it chooses the target at a lower X coordinate, or if that is the same, the target at a lower Y coordinate, or if that is the same, the target at a lower Z coordinate.

Given these mechanics, there are a few interesting effects:

1) Creatures will always attack an adjacent pet over an adjacent player. If there is a pet nearby, you won't get hit.
2) Once a pet has been targeted, it will never drop threat no matter how far away it is as long as it is still in range and in the proper mode. This is because a pet that was previously targeted is given a +6 total priority, but a player that isn't the current target can only get to +5 maximum.
3) The only way to transfer threat from one player to another is for the targeted player to run away.

Thought I'd start a thread of my own since it seems that's the way to go, rather than littering a half dozen other threads Smile


- Two doors don't currently auto-open in town on the Island: The Mage building, and trying to enter the Provisioner building from the sheep-pen side.  I think the issue for both doors might be objects placed too near them.  They will open with a double-click, but not auto.

  PvP - Clarifications.
Posted by: Locomotive - 01-16-2018, 02:08 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Good day fellow UO dwellers.

After long years break though will look for a shard. Always great to start when its new. 

Quick question to those who know the answer. What would be the pvp overview? Classes? 

And the most important questions. Will you be able to run and cast? 

Thank you in advance for any information.

p.s. shard so far looks great.

  Blaise's Razor Macro Library for UOOL
Posted by: Blaise - 01-15-2018, 03:39 PM - Forum: Player Guides & Macros - No Replies

I tend to get asked for macros or help with macros in Razor on a fairly regular basis. I've decided to start sharing what I make that's specific to UOOL and I'll just keep adding to this as I go along.

Today I Spun up a quick mining macro here that'll dress your pickaxe, mine the area, say "Movin on!" and stop macro, when the resources have been depleted:

Mine Area Macro:
Requisites: Dress item "Pick" with pickaxe added by type. 
Optional Configs: Add Organizer Agent after SpeechAction to organize ore to pack animal (set as hotbag)
!Loop
Assistant.Macros.DressAction|Pick
Assistant.Macros.HotKeyAction|1305|
Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|30
Assistant.Macros.HotKeyAction|1059|

  is uo worth playing again?
Posted by: reb - 01-12-2018, 12:58 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

hi, ill try to keep this as short as possible.

i was an uo newcomer in 2012 or so, played ipy2 and relpor, also uo an corp and uo immortalis for a bit but quit early, dont remember much or why.

im burnt out on gaming today, cant find nothing interesting to play. was thinkig back at the short period i played uo and had to admit that it was one or maybe even THE best gaming experience ive had in the past 10 years.

i loved this game when i was new and naive. i later started to hate this game more and more when i realized how everyone else played it.
the following may sound super negative, please excuse me for that but these are the reasnons me, an uo outsider and probably others will never attempt to play this game or get playing again:

1: is the community still trying to skip the game by scripting/macroing everything available in the game?
id like to play the adventure, i enjoy the journey, but not when im totally gimping my progress and better just "cheat" like everyone else.
double skillgain in dungeons was a joke, maybe 10x would have done the trick, maybe still worse than unattended macroing progress.

2: steam uo was released just about when i quit. is steam not totally broken? isnt everyone abusing it even more than razor? doesnt it automate pvp even more?
when i see a video like this i do believe thats the case: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M01E8tXAfTs
id have to become a scripter to actually play this game again and to be on the same level as everyone else, frightening.
i have deleted all my razer macros. id need an all in one "scripts you need to play uo in 2018" package.

3: any plans to prevent ghost or hidden scouting in front of dungeons?
this was not a knight game to me, more like a high tech everything under surveillance world. 7 PEC guys showing up when you solo pked some guy and were trying to res him lol, ty paladin orb.

4: are you going with the OP stealth mechanics from relpor again?
it was kind of amusing to solo ancient wyrms on a stealth dexer with 90s skills and just a hally and some bandages with zero risk of death from any monster nor player.
BUT it turned the game into another game that i did not exacly enjoy. the limited interaction we had left due to low pop was further hurt when everyone started only stealth around and ganking anyone that wasnt smart enough to do the same.
part of it was also that the dungeons were overpacked with mobs. for example if you entered khalmar (name?) you had 5 imps cast on you, 2nd level 10 gargoyles dump you etc. there were barely any break zones except in every dungeon on the lowest floor. best loot, not much danger because none bothered coming down to hunt you, invisile, invulnerable! boring.

sorry, i didnt come here to bash uo or its developers, i want to thank you all for the experience i could have.
id just love to have a shard where active play is desired, ban macroing completely, id be down with it. i want a hardcore experience while seemingly this whole community is stuck in a bubble trying to trivialize the game as much as possible, or not?

hi miridor, we used to play with you guys on ipy2 etc, hans and ultimate_onliner/boogieknight i believe
