Hey everyone, Today is probably the worst possible day in Ultima Online Forever history. This will be another one of those bumps that UOF will get over and continue on as we always do, I promise you that. Recently one of our developers made a change to the way saves are handled on Ultima Online Forever. What this change basically did is corrupt every WORLD SAVE that has initiated in the last TWO days. So, the server hung up on an error, and upon fixing that error, and rebooting to the latest save was found to be corrupt, and the save before that, and before that ... and so on... What does this mean? Basically it means we will have to do a two day revert. I cannot tell you how disappointed i am in this error, and that developer. We have since let that Developer go permanently, before this even happened for various reasons and we will for now, only have ONE developer, ADAM. I want to note that this was NOT an intentional error. I can't express enough how sorry we are for this, we know you guys value your play time here, and losing that much play time will feel like a complete waste. I want to ENSURE everyone that THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. We will be putting in some serious precautionary steps to back this up. We will be having more restarts, and testing world-saves more often. We will do everything in our complete power to make this right. Again, I apologize deeply for this, and i hope everyone understands as we are taking this very, very seriously. Even large corporation games like World of Warcraft has had larger reverts than this. We will get passed this, and we will continue to do our absolute best for you guys. We cannot unfortunately replace anything you have lost in the last two days. As much as i wish we could, we have no valid saves to prove anything otherwise. Those who have donated in the last TWO days will have their donation coins replaced of course. We will be putting on some events, and doing a handout for this as well. The server will be back up in a little bit of time here, we first want to be 100% sure we cannot salvage the last save. All hope isn't lost, but it doesn't look great. Regards, Shane UPDATE: We will be bringing up the server soon. We will be initiating a process giving everyone ONE FREE character slot. Also we will be handing out an item to exemplify how appreciative we are of our dedicated players on every character on every account. Also starting this FRIDAY we will have some sort of Skill BOOST and Gold Boost. We may have more updates to come here, but our main focus is getting the server up, and running smoothly, and ensuring saves are working properly (as of now they are, we will be watching carefully!) UPDATE TWO: Server is being booted back up now. Extra character slots will be applied when we input the command to do so. (Already tested as working). We will do a handout in due time here. I will be working on replacing the donation coins lost during this revert, please be patient. Skill Gain Bonus and Loot Bonus will start THIS FRIDAY, and go until THIS SUNDAY. The skill gain bonus probably won't be as large for taming, poisoning, etc... (The harder skills). There will be a bonus however still. We will also have a two week quest coming very soon for everyone. Hopefully this will be enough, with a side of "we are sorry" to compensate for this error. Thank you guys so much those who have been more than understanding, it means a ton to us. When things like this happen it really tests us, and the players here and shows us just how loyal you guys can be. We are grateful for that, and we appreciate that.
