Malena posted a topic in Maps & ChallengesHey guys, Up till now, the only thing I've been using Unlimited for is to play around with the god tools so I can test out house and environment designs for WO. Playing around with the magic god wand has become so enjoyable that I decided I'd like to recreate the Ultima Online map. As mentioned in my previous thread, this is going to be a "look but don't touch" server and the whole server will be one gigantic deed. So I will not be opening it up for other people to live on as I just don't have time or energy to get into community management at this point. I just want to relax and enjoy building. For now, the server will be offline. Once it's ready though, I will make it public so all you old Ultima fans out there can come and visit as a tourist if you like. In this thread, I'll be documenting the whole process as I go along. I know there have been some previous Ultima related projects out there, and as far as I can tell, they have died off and are offline. But I just want to reassure those people that my project is not in competition even if y'all decided to restart up your servers. Again, the reason being because my server will not be a community, just a tourist attraction. The most nostalgic MMO players I know (myself included) are old Ultima Online players. So I've named the server accordingly and will do my very best to set it up, build and decorate just like good old UO. When the day comes that it's ready to be made public, I hope you'll share a little moistness in your eye, remembering back to the good old days in the lands of Sosaria!
Malena posted a topic in Wood ScrapsI know a lot of you are old Ultima Online players, so may I just share my excitement in getting to soon meet Raph Koster who was the lead designer of the original version of Ultima Online (+ Second Age which was when I started to play). Rarely do we see game development "super stars" visit the far reaches of Nordic countries like Finland, but in a couple of weeks he'll be here and I'll be able to finally express my appreciation for what a great game UO was. For those who have never heard of Ultima Online, just know that UO was pretty obviously a big inspiration for Wurm Online as well. I can't know that as a fact of course unless Rolf has expressed this in an interview somewhere, but it would be highly strange if it was not! If you happen to live in Finland and were a mega UO fan back in the day, you might be interested in the event as well: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/evening-with-raph-koster-next-games-tickets-24458039655
