Launch thread: (updated with launch information) 

What is Outlands? 
UO Outlands is a new Ultima Online free shard currently being developed by Luthius & Owen. 

When are you launching? 
The shard is currently in development.

Do you have a mailing list so I don't miss a launch announcement? 
Yes! Sign up here:

Is there a beta server? Can I play now? 
Yes!  You can connect here:

Can I set my skills and get equipment on the beta server? 
Yes!  When you login to beta, you can set your character up (skills, stats, etc) using the green Player Editor statue by the fountain. You can equip yourself using the Storage Shelf. 

What era of gameplay is Outlands?
Outlands is a uniquely tailored mix of T2A and Renaissance era mechanics, with disarm, partial heal through poison (75% at greater poison, 50% at deadly poison, 25% at lethal) rather than flat 0% heal through poison, insta-hit, pre-casting.

Is it a Felucca-based shard? 
Yes, you can be killed anywhere outside of guard zones. 

Can you explain the PvP system? 
A great guide has been posted here which summarizes the PvP mechanics on Outlands:

Is there any skillgain bonuses? 
The new player dungeon (accessible via Shelter Island) has a 10x skillgain bonus up to 70 in each skill.  This bonus doesn't apply to crafting, harvesting or taming. 
Otherwise, there is a global 5x skillgain bonus for activity - meaning you have killed something within 10 minutes that wasn't tamed or summoned.   This bonus doesn't apply to crafting, harvesting or taming.

Can I go into dungeons? 
You can access the dungeons using the red moongate in the center of town. There are 8 dungeons available. 

Will the beta server be wiped before launch?! 
Yes, the shard will be wiped before launch

Where is the server located?
We have a mainly East Coast based staff, and the server is hosted in Chicago.  You can ping as a sample of your connectivity.

How many accounts and characters per IP?
3 accounts / 5 characters = 15 characters.

Can you tell me about the custom content? 
There is a tremendous amount of custom content and thousands of hours worth of development into both gameplay and the new map. As we get closer to launching we will begin to share more information. In the meantime, please join us in Discord (link below or on main web page) and view the #development-screenshots channel for some visuals of what we've been up to. 

Is there a new map? 
Yes! There is a 100% custom map featuring 3 major cities, 4 supporting towns and 8 never before seen dungeons.  It is approximately 50% smaller than the original Britannia map, but loaded with content and areas to explore.  There is plenty of room for housing! 

Can you recall in dungeons? 
There is no recall/mark/gate in dungeons overall, however we use a unique moongate system which is as follows: golden moongates are found within the front half of each dungeon's Level 1. You can recall/mark/cast gate within 8 tiles of these moongates. Level 2/3's have red moongates which act as an "escape hatch."  (generally 1 or 2, but in some cases more as in Inferno which is massive.)

Will you have mounts ingame? 
Mounts are available overland, but not in dungeons. We only have horses, llamas, frenzied ostards, forest orns and desert orns. 

Do you have heat seeking/chain reactive purple potions?
No. Standard countdown from 5.

Do you have a BOD system?
No.  We have a system called Societies which we feel is more balanced.

Do you have custom housing?
We have over 125 new placeable houses, but custom housing is currently N/A (and may never be.)

Is there instahit?

Can you heal through poison?

How many houses per accounts?
One house per account.

How do IDOC timers work?
There is a random timer between 12-24 hours.

Can homes be refreshed indefnitely by a friend if the owner isn't around?
Yes, any friend/co-owner of the house will refresh it by opening the door.

Are you hiring staff? 
At the moment Luthius and I are working independently, but plan on hiring staff members from the community eventually.  Please join the forum and Discord and get involved.

Do you have a Discord channel / chatroom? 
Yes, join us here.

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have below or in the Discord channel.
