UO:F Basics

This contains basic ultima online information applicable to our shard. Typically meant for first time or returning ultima online players who have not played in quite some time.

How do i get to t2a?

The second age (T2A) is not active on Ultima Online Forever. This condenses the population a bit for the better. We have added Booty Island, and do plan on opening some new smaller area's in the future.

How do commodity Deeds work?

Commodity deeds are used to store large quantities of items onto one single deed. Only certain items can be commodity deeded. They are extremely useful because you can turn something that is extremely heavy in high quantities into a single stone by commodity deeding.

An example of this lets say you have 10,000 boards. Extremely heavy so you would not be able to transport them in high quantities however what you do is buy a commodity deed from a banker. You then must place the commodity deed into your bank and double click it. Then you select the boards. They will all go into the deed and the deed will read what is inside of it. You can then sell those 10k boards all at once or transport them somewhere very easily. To redeem the commodity deed you must double click it. It will then turn into the items it is storing immediately.

On UO:F We have a Commodity deed box which makes those deeds even more useful. A commodity deed box allows you to redeem a commodity deed at home or any location you wish with that box. You can buy the commodity deed box on the donation vendor currently. It works the same way as your bank does.

Some items that people typically commodity deed for sale and or for transport
Ingots
Boards
Reagents
Leather

These are just a few of the many items.

How do you travel the world?

You will start out on foot however horses/llamas are optimal for traveling. You can run significantly faster on a mount than on foot. NPC animal trainers sell horses.

There are also Moongates located in most all towns in UO. Moongates allow you to travel to anothers towns moongate. This is a popular means of travel. Often moongates are surrounded by player vendors as well.

Recall spell: The recall spell allows you to travel immediately to a location marked on a recall rune. It is a low level spell but you will fizzle if you use a scroll without magery. You however will not fizzle if you place a scroll into a runebook and use book "charges".

Runbook: Runebooks allow you to place recall runes inside. You can palce multiple runes inside of a runbook. Typically runes placed in runebooks are places that you travel most often to such as "Britain" or "House". To place a rune into a book you simple drop the rune on top of the book. To add "charges" to a book you simply drop recall spells onto the runebook. Charges will never fizzle and are used by clicking the small blue button near the location you wish to travel.

Recall Rune: Recall runes give you the ability to mark locations that you wish to travel to in the future. When you use the mark spell you click the recall rune and it will mark the exact location you are standing in. This is extremely useful for traveling. Often players mark 50+ recall runes to places they travel to all the time

Gate Travel: Gate travel is a high level spell which allows you to open up a gate to a location. You simple click the recall rune or gate through the rune book. Any player can then enter your gate that you have opened so you can travel in groups.

How do you buy from an NPC?

You must approach the NPC and use a command. I will list some commands that are applicable to NPCs below

Vendor Buy
Vendor Sell
(NPC Name) Buy
(NPC Name) Sell
(NPC Name) Train < To train skills from an NPC. You may also single click the NPC to see what skills they have to offer.
(NPC Name) Join < To join an NPC Guild. Only one NPC has a guild worth joining currently and that is the Thieves guild.

How do I create hotkeys/macros for spells and other functions?

The key to success in Ultima Online is having a good set of hotkeys and macros that you can become comfortable with. There are 64 different spells available for use, as well as dozens different skills and other functions. The best thing you can do is start by looking at the hotkey options that are available in both razor and the in game options menu. There are a number of important hotkeys that should be set early on.

In Game Macro Options
[​IMG]

By accessing your options menu (alt+o) you may then click on the macro options tab which allows you to create in game macros. You can hotkey your spells and different abilities through both in game and through razor. However, we are going to just use razor to set hotkeys for spells to keep things consistent. We are going to use the in-game macro options to set a hotkey in game that says the following \"vendor buy bank guards\" on F5 and \"vendor sell\" sell on F6. Make sure to hit apply, then okay. These keys to allow you to deal with NPCs easier.

Razor Hotkey Options
[​IMG]

Razor will allow you to easily set hotkeys for all of your spells and other abilities in game. The first thing you should hotkey is \"Enable/Disable Razor HotKeys\". This function will allow you to turn razor hotkeys on and off so you can type in game. For example if you have bandage bound to B, when you hit B you will always use bandage, turn razor hotkeys on and off and when they are off hitting B will type a B in game instead of using your bandage.

What are some of the more "advanced" commands?

Auto-run can be activated by holding down the right mouse and clicking the left.

Hold down Ctr+Shift to bring up all the items on your screen including player health bars allowing you to drag hp bars easier. Also helps with looting a corpse you may not otherwise see

Hitting ctrl + w and ctr + q will scroll up and down through the previous messages that you have sent
Heavy piles unable to be held in your backpack can still be held safely on your cursor
You can use this to move heavy piles by placing the stack on the ground, moving forward and dragging it to another spot in front of you

Many items of the same type can be stacked together by placing the items on top of each-other

Is there a map I can reference outside of in game?

Please see this world map: http://wiki.game-master.net/map/ All of these lands are applicable to us however some dungeon locations and other special things are not accurate to our shard and or on that map. Any custom additions are also not on that map.

Where am I safe in uo?

Ultima Online is a FFA PvP game meaning you can be attacked by any player. Inside town you are protected by guards and are safe but once you leave town anyone can attack you. Player killers will have a red name as opposed to a blue one. A criminal will have a gray name temporarily. When in warring guilds or factions you can fight anywhere in or out of guards with your opposing group.

What happens when I first join UO:F?

Upon entering the world you will have a (Young) status next to your name. As a young player, you will not lose any items that you hold but you can still die. This is to teach people about death before it counts. All mobs will aggro you and it is possible to be pk'd by players however they will be punished by being paralyzed temporarily.

A new account holds a welcome bag with 500gp, a suit of leather armor, 50 of each reg, and 100 bandages. You will be offered to join the "NEW" guild once you start out. If you choose no and wish to later page into a GM and they can add you.

The new player dungeon is location in West Britain. There is a quest inside if you wish to partake. Only young players may enter the young player dungeon.

This is the most commonly used entrance to the young player dungeon. Just walk into the sparkles.
