**NEW INFO: Zombies have the chance to drop "a rotting zombie head" Take the rotting zombie head to one of the zombie portal cauldrons scattered throughout zombieland Double click the cauldron and any zombie heads will be converted to event crystals and added to your bank in the normal world Prizes will not be awarded based on points, those are bragging rights only The cure recipe has been changed Zombieland is coming this weekend it seems and for those who have never played there, there's a pretty good learning curve. It is completely different than regular UO. It's set in Delucia, so..fun! You are your character, but your skills are different. Most start t about 80 and there's no skill cap so you can be a mage, fencing, blacksmith tailor. You start off with a knife and bandages and you will die..a lot. Over and over and over and bounce around the world each time you die. When starting, this is the time you try to raise some skills as you bounce, hiding when you find a good spot or your fighting skills, etc. We try to group up in Zombieland but you can't talk in guild or alliance chat. There is a world chat, [ZC and then when we do find each other, we can party which makes finding the group easier once inside Zombieland. We generally try to find a spot near a forge to hold up and defend. There are chests you bury and dig back up, called "caches." They require finding a chest and a green shovel. There are also different targetting options that will be explained in more detail. It's pretty necessary to be in voice chat, even if you can listen to me ramble on (if you are in Trin/alliance but people should get in UOF voice too if they don't have a guild). Anyone can hop on test at any time to check it out. Go to the Test Center and type [z and a gump will pop up and click "join event." Please feel free to ask questions here in this thread and I'll do my best to answer if you can't make the Zombieland Training on Tuesday. Some more things to know: * Targetting is arcade style which is explained here (along with some other information): Or we have a steam macro that I will post in this thread that overrides the arcade targetting. It's kind of neat though and not too hard to master but takes some time to set up the hotkeys. * Most other macros won't work in Zombieland so for example, healing self has to be done under Options in the game options. Make sure to TURN on new targeting system. I don't know why this works but it's the only way it will let you set a macro.) * You will lose everything when you die so if you get a good stash, bury it. But remember where it is. There are maps with the locations you can keep in a buried cache, just remember where that one is buried. Don't keep the maps on you. When you die, people can loot them and find your caches. * Kill every bird you see for feathers - trust me on this. * There's a quest. We generally try to do this as a guild so that everyone can accomplish the quest. We help each other find recipes and get them in order. (you'll get this more once you've been playing in Zombieland more.) * I will share some macros and maps to make it easier to find each other. * If you're stuck, and don't want to work hiding for a while, say "I don't want to live." (I may have to double check that wording.) You'll die but get moved somewhere else. * When you log, make sure to do it through the Zombieland gump, [Z command, otherwise your character will become a zombie essentially and start attacking everyone (which is pretty freaking funny when it happens.) *Items can be thrown like weapons - spoons, plates, stools. Very funny, very cool. (Will add more as I think of them.) Video about Zombieland (a bit old but still pretty much the same concept): PS: You do not need to be in our alliance to ask questions here about Zombieland. We want as many people there as possible so please feel free to ask or share your experiences, offer tips, etc.
