    As we have mentioned it for a while now, we have been taking a deep look into our shard rules. Along with adjusting them for new mechanics, we have heard your comments and complaints in regards to the vagueness or wording of some of the rules. Our hope is to provide a better experience to all players.

    We have re-written almost all of them to:

    • Clearly state what is legal or not (ie removing most grey areas)
    • Add rules for new mechanics
    • Remove rules that did not contribute to the spirit of UOF (or were un-enforceable)
    • Re-organize the rules for easier reading

    You can find them on our rules page at:

    http://www.uoforever.com/rules.php

    UPDATE: We will be removing the rules regarding AFK relic macroing for the interim until we have the mechanics in place to support it.

    "PvP" as in combat only, or PvP as any type of interaction?

    Such as using one character to track and reveal players, and another for stealing from them.

    PvP as any actions that would contribute to PvP - being an agressor or not.

    Example: Wall blocking with one char while attacking with another. Revealing with one char while attacking with another, etc.

    AFK macroing of talismans or talisman relics is not allowed.

    that is the huge part about what was added/changed

    so trapping houses work both ways? As in you can't trap people from getting in their houses with boxes or other items?


    Yeah and you kinda buried the lead with this:

    • AFK macroing meta pets OR meta pet relics is not allowed.
    • AFK macroing of talismans or talisman relics is not allowed.

    Only Trapping IN or around your house. Blocking people out of your house is not trapping them.

    Ultima Online Forever reserves the right to add, alter or otherwise change any and all of the terms at any given time without notification to anyone at that time. Over-all we expect all players to be respectful, mature, and have general common sense in all situations of Ultima Online Forever.



    the part that says we expect all players to be respectful and mature.......really made me lol........those 2 words and most of the playerbase here dont belong in the same sentence

    well there is no way you can block players inside a house because they always can use "leave house" option

    I think someone would now need about 1 year to max talisman relics without macroing them.

    @eppy has previously identified this (he is the meta talisman brainchild) and knows what needs to be done to make the mechanics fair now that we have an official stance on afk macroing meta stuff. What i am saying is that we have already thought it through and identified this as a potential issue to be resolved.

    Making people gain relics in the dungeons/world instead of their trammel/homes?

    Say it isn't so. :rolleyes:

    Maybe that is how long they are supposed to take.

    Maybe yes. All I know is to e.g max a defence dexxer takes weeks upon weeks of macroing. It would be very unfair for all new players to try and max one out now.

    You mean new players AND those that didn't finish afk macroing their current ones ;-)

    I don't see anywhere that states you cannot macro it, just not afk macro it.

    There are several places in the shard that there are fixed gates. Setting these up as "death gates" or traps is not allowed. Doing this with your own casted gates is fine.

    Yeah literally just got my meta defense talisman just the other day, and now they slap this down.

    So basically everyone that were able to macro their relics have a year headstart on grinding their talisman relics, I would agree Eppy would have to take a look at the gains and make it so you can just level these while hunting instead of having to afk macro for weeks upon end.

    Heh, I think you missed the part where it takes over a solid month of macroing.

    If you feel like sitting at the computer 24 hours a day x 30+ days straight, power to you meng.
