Re: Attack with disco and [claim

I don't have a select flute in my script (as you say it gums it up) but, I do keep the discord last target on a continuous loop. It's not elegant but works very well as you only really need to select a new flute-like every 6 hours of actual fighting or so, unless you are fighting things with a 160 b...

Re: Attack with disco and [claim

Something else to consider, using discordance on a creature that has already been discorded uses more instrument uses. it does not, if a target is already in discord or is not discordable then no uses are used. I just make 10 800+ use flutes and keep them in a bag in my pack... I have a working scr...

Re: Kill Stealing Solutions

My opinion is nothing needs to be done because it's not a problem, in the very rare cases it happens its dealt with appropriately by systems already in place. If I could make any change (for the fun of it) it would be if you attack any critter that someone has (or rather will have when it dies) loot...

Re: Does anyone know (+C?) how para critters work?

agreed, which is why im so confused about it. Maybe different ppl added the spawns and enabled/disabled the increased spawn spots in blood? Side note the highest chest I ever got (electric with a diabolical inside) came from spectral dungeon).

Re: Kill Stealing Solutions

Yeah the most common problem is someone thinks they own a spawn or next kill but they don't (regardless of if they feel they are entitled to it or not) in situations like this I just switch to the [claimall script and poof the corps before it even hits the ground. ppl crying about being inline whils...

Re: Kill Stealing Solutions

Don't really see kill stealing as an issue, rules are fairly straightforward. If someone has damaged a critter it belongs to them and you may not engage it unless they abandon the kill by not engaging for 2 minutes. Most ppl abide by the rules quite well and if they don't you can PM them or report d...

Re: Does anyone know (+C?) how para critters work?

cool story John, whilst mathematically possible it is very unlikely anything in your proposal is applicable to the situation. If 5% is the spawn rate then between 4-6% of critters spawned in a survey would reasonably be para with 100% or 0% possible but extremely unlikely (read statistically imposab...

Re: Looting time for European players

Maybe it is a razor dealy (but I doubt it) it takes 600MS to move any item (built-in back in the day due to dial-up constraints).

Re: Looting time for European players

my ping is 52, I'm fairly sure every drag-drop action has a game engine delay of 600 ms so, I don't see how this would be helpful at all. +C has said many times he is not going to put customizable option on [claim/[claimall because of 2 reasons it would have a negative impact on the economy (I think...

Re: Does anyone know (+C?) how para critters work?

I believe that spawners are placed (a lot like your personal animal spawner in your house) and only spawn one type and you can say how many it should spawn. so in blood, there are 3 bally spawners all set to one in that room but then there are 4/5 blood element spawners in each E and W halls all set...

Does anyone know (+C?) how para critters work?

Does anyone know how para critters work? I know it is supposed to be a 5% spawn rate but, does that mean every time a critter spawns there's a 5% RNG chance it does so as a para? Is there a set max of Paras in the world (or sub-region IDK how UO works but I think the sheets are split up into regions...

Re: How can i recover, pet skill down

Well as the needed information OP was seeking (how to regain lost pet skills) had nothing to do with the posted link it wasn't that helpful; thus my unapologetic sarcasm accompanying the actual answer to the question. I have no ill will toward anyone on the server (other than that one chad that I ga...

Re: How can i recover, pet skill down

no one called you out by name... if you are feeling guilty that's just your conscience.

And I do like to help people, nearly as much as I like to poke fun at ppl you like to be snarky or upset about perceived slights

Re: How can i recover, pet skill down

here have a usefully reply that isn't full of snarky stupidity; whist at the same time failing to satifactually answer the question. You recover pet skills through training (ie, just have them fight something and the skill will go back up to its cap); no ointments are required. The only skill that d...
