as you know, in recent weeks, significant updates have been implemented on our shard, enriching the interaction possibilities within the player community. In individual cities of Felucci on March 1 and then every quarter, the first mayors will be elected – they are selected from the players themselves declared as inhabitants of individual regions. The implemented system of loyalty, provides the possibility of a gradual increase in the position of players in individual cities and over time to obtain in them noble titles and other bonuses. The trade mechanics between the cities within this continent have also been launched. Your characters can now do trade missions by delivering products to specific cities. Additional opportunities within cities were also received by Guilds.
Elected mayors will receive specific powers to exercise jurisdiction in their area. They will also decide who to give the honorable name of the citizen of the city in which they perform the function. The implemented changes fit in perfectly with the existing Virtue vs Valor system (ie new factions).
We are also working on creating a large market within New Magincia. From yesterday, it is possible to participate in the lottery by purchasing tickets entitling you to get land for a house in this location. Lots can be purchased separately for each spot to increase your chances of a house within the market. Places are divided into places where you can buy an unlimited number of tickets (to increase your chances in this way) and for those where each account in the game can buy only one lottery ticket. The fate is acquired on the stone of the spots marked with the symbols Lot (number). The draw will be made automatically in 29 days and the lucky ones will receive a piece of land for their own store. In addition, within Magincia, you can participate in regular auctions of renting land for smaller shopping stalls.
Today, the server has received a huge update providing access to completely new cast and keep projects. It will also be possible to have an extremely large base for a 32×32 house. This is our special gift in the guild of the Guild and especially ambitious among you, wanting to create your own house / palace or fortress as the new era.
As you know, the deadline for the Malas closing survey is expiring now. We recognized, as indeed many of the players in the world, that Malas and located within it, Luna was a peculiar nail to the UO coffin, depopulating the wonderful continent of Felucca. We want to change this and we are happy with the positive response to this proposal. In the next two weeks, our GMs will help you in moving entire homes to new locations – for this purpose, I activated a special command to move the whole house with full equipment. If you want to use this form of help, please contact the coordinating topic Shiryu. After this time points located in Malas will disappear from the lists of public moongates as possible destination points of travel.
However, extinguishing Malas will not mean losing all of the continent’s content. Players will still be provided with access to such places as Doom, Bedlam or Labyrinth. Within the Felucca continent there are points leading to them, which we will carry on the public map after completion of works.
Today’s update also includes a number of other patches and modifications that are intended to make the game more attractive. All the former racial bonuses functioning on it once again became active on Felucca, including a bonus for obtaining raw materials. Innocent players who do not already have the Young status will still be able to go through the public gate to the New Haven area to meet new residents and encourage them to play together, for example in their Guild.
The principles of traveling between different continents have also been remodeled. Movement of the players’ characters between two different continents will take place from now on using public moongates. The change does not affect the current rules of traveling within the space of individual continents. This change gives new meaning to these types of gates, making them important strategic points because the journey from continent A to continent B, bypassing the passage through such a gate will be impossible from now (bows to the collectors toll from 1998-2000 on Catskills: D).
Finally, one more information – still in the month of February, we plan to transfer the infrastructure of all our servers on Windows Server 2019. This possibility is the effect of your willingness to support our project and payments that provide the opportunity to achieve our goals – for which we thank you very much 🙂
