    We are going to be making some new video tutorials for newer players who may not have much experience with Ultima Online Forever.

    This is an example of the sort of things we'd like to cover.




    We are looking for issues to cover, so please feel free to respond with feedback / topics in this thread.
    If you are new, give us a topic you'd like us to cover for a video.
    If you are a veteran, try to remember back when you were new, what type of video would of made things much easier for you?


    http://learn.uoforever.com will be the new "learning" central area for Ultima Online Forever.

    As a companion some of the most common stuff are things that are addressed in Razor or Steam and even UO options like how to set a heal maco, llike bandageself; how to keep the lights on, how to use the UO Positioning System or the Steam map to follow guildies; how to change text color; how to check conquests; how to recall using charges in a book; the simple things that all players should know.

    An additional note on creating a 7x that Gluttony mentioned, I would be sure to include an explanation of skill modifiers and what skills complement each other such as eval, anat ect.

    One of the first things I desired in the game after I had a way to make gold was a house. A tutorial on placing a house and customizing it. Might add it may be easier to purchase a preplaced plot these days.

    MIBs and Treasure maps are also good ways new players can grow in skill and experience without a large guild for support.

    Great idea! A little known fact - in UOS you can also type -info to get the target cursor and item property window to see what hue and serial etc.

    Further expanding on the "what to do if you see a pk"

    Recall home/bank macro, and hotkey.

    Common items to carry: Pots,trapped pouches. Setting up hotkeys to use the pouches.

    Recall restrictions(murder counts)

    Same video can address reds being in town, changes to guard zone, brit bridge.

    Just a few things I've noticed brought up recently.

    Brief guide on item modifiers (ruin/force/might/power/vanq, etc), slayer gear and so forth. Maybe include an approximate value for these items as well so newbies don't end up filling up their bank with ruin pitchforks.

    One thing you could do is shadow a few new players. Document the topics covered to go back and record a video tutorial on those topics. Maybe record interactions when new players page in so you can compile videos for in game tutorials.

    It'd be nice to have videos addressing all the new content added on UOF. Most new players are old traditional UO players. Its very difficult to learn about the new (and fun looking) additions that KOSH mentioned.

    Maybe lingo? It took me a while to figure out what people were talking about when they said pots, regs, mibs, mobs, bods, champs, ethys, statting, etc.

    Flagging (crim/innocent/perma-grey) is a mechanic of UO that i see a lot of people get very upset at because they don't understand it. Once you do understand it, however, you can potentially manipulate the world 2x+ as much. Very helpful for both defensive and offensive playstyles. I'd show the defensive side mostly however as most new players are probably trying to survive rather than PK or steal at first.
