So It Begins!
« on: September 27, 2019, 05:19:20 AM »

We are Happy To announce that We have rolled out the Terra Gold system. What this is, is a game time reward system. For every 30 mins you are logged in you will receive 30 Terra Gold. You will only receive this if you are logged in. There are Terra Gold Stones [Tier 1] located in Aria, Noticia, and Firestorm. Two locations each. There is also one in the museum. The Tier 1 stone has more common items much like what you can get from the Vendor Stones in the start areas. Some time in the next few days I will put out the Tier 2 stone which will have the more interesting things you will be able to get with the Terra Gold. We thought it would be nice to be able to use it for a variety of things from resources to neat stuff.

We are also happy to announce that The Custom Crafting System Advanced Mechanical Life is now available. There is an Npc named Sutek the Mechanic in Obelisk that sells the tools you need and some of the stuff you can make with it. Advanced Mechanical Life crafting system is a full fledged crafting system based on tinkering skill. It takes Golem Crafting to new levels, and is a very complex system. All the original golems are now a part of this system and cannot be crafted the old ways. Clockwork Assemblies will not produce a golem as they do in UO. The clockwork assembly is just one of the items you will need in this system. It is fully possible to completely train Tinkering from 0 to 100 with this system. you can train it to 150 if you are an elemental god. Sutek is not the same Sutek in UO, I made a new version and only kept the name so all the cliloc text files for the Mechanical Life book would not require a change. In UO the Mechanical Life Book had to be gotten from Sutek and read by a gm tinker in order to create the clockwork scorpion, leather wolf, and vollem assemblies. The New Sutek offers a quest for this book, much like the old one did. The Golem, Clockwork Scorpion, Leather Wolf, and Vollem have all had revamps with new versions of them being craftable. The System is loosely modeled after automotive manufacturing. This means that you have to go through the process of crafting all the components and parts to create the mechanical beasts and there are 90+ beasts. There are two tools for the system. Fabrication Tools and Assembly Tools. The Fabrication Tools are used to craft all the parts and components you will need. The Assembly Tools are used to create the Mechanical Beasts. You will go through more Fabrication Tools then you will Assembly Tools. These Mechanical Beasts cannot be Bonded, The Delete on Release, cannot be healed by normal means, they cannot be shrunk in the same way as other pets, and They do not hold a name after they have been disassembled. After you get through all the crafting and you finally get your Statue of the Mechanical Beast, You will double click it to assemble it.(statue is in the name of the final product. example being Iron Horse Statue.) Assembling it from the statue is unshrinking it. Once out, to reshrink it, it must be at 100% hitpoints, and you single click it to get the drop down context menu. At the bottom you will see disassemble. Clicking that will shrink the Mechanical Creature. To Heal them you have to use the Fabrication or Assembly Tool's Repair option and target them while they are assembled. This will use Iron Ingots to repair them, so you will need some of those on you to do the repairs.(this is the same as how golems work in UO) All the mechanical beasts are immune to poison upto lethal. If they do manage to get poisoned, you can use cure spells on them. Healing spells do not work though. GM Tinkering Repair Deeds will also work on them if you are at a tinker shop. Have Fun Exploring this, There is nothing Like it anywhere else.

The Tier 2 Terra Gold Stone has been added to the Museum. It has 13 items on it you cannot get anywhere else. Also note that we have introduced Gain Potions. There are currently 3 types available to players. The Donation Stones have a 5x skill gain for 60 mins version, The Quest Token Stone has a 3.5x skill gain version, and The Terra Gold Stone[Tier 2] has a 2x skill gain version. Also We have moved the GM Skill Deeds to Donation Token Stone.

Gain Potions also come in versions that target individual skills or skill groups, while these are currently unavailable, we intend to have them be quest rewards in the future.
gain potion commands players can use:
[gainpotion   this displays how much time is left of the potion. multiple potions cannot be used at one time
[removegainpotion  this forces the current gain potion to expire, not sure why you would want to do this but who knows, its there if you need it.

GM Skill Deeds were moved for many reasons, One was because of the Gain Potions, Which speed up skill gain some, Another Reason is at some point these will be made into Quest Rewards and possible future special drops. I've personally been building a character without them and it has been going well. There is enough variety of stuff out there to do that you can raise most skills just by playing normally.

Granite Furness Addon, This addon turns regular granite into sand. It will not change a stack of granite into a stack of sand, so I recommend you use it 1 granite piece at a time, but its pretty neat!

Seed Encyclopedia identifies seed. Ancient Seed Encyclopedia is an unlimited use version. Bell of Summoning summons all unshrunk pets and summons to you. There are three roses that can be locked down in your house that produce petals, the petals can be harvested and act like potions. The Pen of Wisdom will copy a runebook locations included. Way Stone when used will give all members of your party a gump that will allow them to transport to you. The gump is timed, and the Way Stone cannot be used in dungeons where there is a devil, champ, or in the eternal passage. It can however be used most other places.

I think this covers most things. Have Fun with the new stuff!
