    Things on this list may change or be modified and will be updated accordingly. As well more will be added to the list as they come to mind or we add them.

    To see all available commands in game:

    • Type [MyCommands

    General Server Quality of Life Features

    • Power Scrolls do NOT need consumed in order. This reduces the grind.
    • Enhanced guild system is implemented. Old guildstones still available from gold sink vendor in Zento.
    • Skill gain is quick so you get more time to adventure in the world and less time macroing a skill up for a more organic experience.
    • Your Health is always 30 % more than OSI standards. So if you have 100 str normally you would have 100 health. But on UOAlive you have 125. This benefits PvE reduce one hits and allow you to last longer in battles.
    • The enhanced client works for updated graphics as well as ClassicUO, Orion, Razor Enhanced, and UOSteam.
    • Use our custom Portal System to get to points of interest faster![​IMG]
    • Gold is account-wide. Dropping gold coins in your bank box adds them to your account's balance. To pull out gold, use the `withdraw <amount>` command at a bank
    • To trade gold you can just type the amount anywhere in the world in a trade window:

    Secondary Skills DO NOT count toward skillcap.
    Full explanation here: http://uoalive.com/forum/index.php?...d-dont-count-towards-your-total-skillcap.521/


    World and expansions
    • We are 100% OSI accurtate with all expansions and worlds enabled.
    • You can recall, mark, and gate to and from Ilshenar!
    • Achievements!!! (type [myachievements in game to see your own progress and be rewarded for completion or [achievements to see others) [​IMG]
    PvP
    • All worlds are PvP Opt In. This means you can participate in guild wars and arena battles but cannot loot or kill unsuspecting players.

    Insurance

    • You can insure most important items that are not cursed so if you die they do not fall to your corpse and will be with you upon resurrection.
    • If you do lose a body and cannot get to it in time, you can use a corpse collector for a fee in Britain or Zento to have it brought to you.

    Loot

    • All weapons and armor should show a rarity underneath the name. 2018-10-25 21_49_12-Photo Collage Maker _ photo-collage.net.png
    • Loot's sell value to vendors scales with the rarity; a [Rare] Longsword will sell for more than a [Common] one.
    • There is a chance to get a statue from any mob you kill, COLLECT THEM ALL!
    • [​IMG]

    Housing

    • House decay timers are 90 days. This means after 90 days of not refreshing a home it will fall and all items can be taken from the ground.
    • If you have a home in the Luna within the walls(albeit this may change if the city is invaded), you will need to be actively playing the account or the house will be removed after 30 days. This only applies to Luna due to it's high priority vendor spots.
    • you no longer have to "toggle" a setting to see items in a house. This was an OSI thing that myself and many of the players disliked. It is a hidden setting and and doesn't save any resources. We have removed it.
    • Monsters and players will now be able to enter ALL houses. You can still set doors, gates, and teleporters to friends only. But players and monsters will no longer be kicked from a house for trying to go on the steps. This is a major nuisance when fighting in a town with houses. It is also a major flaw when using houses to fight monsters without fear of them entering.

    Crafting

    • Salvage Bags are available for sale from Provisioners.
    • Scribes can create Spellbooks and Necromancy Spellbooks, as well as Necromancy scrolls with modifiers.

    Brit Crafting Area
    • There's a sawmill that will cut logs into boards for you.

    BOD system changes

    • You can purchase a Bod Box from the gold sink vendor that will fill a Large Bod for you automatically with the needed smalls. All bods still need to be filled with the items. But it skips the step of hunting for all the rare bods.

    Dungeons

    • Dungeon chests show the level of the chest in its name.
    • In addition to the normal levels 1-4, there is also a level 5 dungeon treasure chest that requires 95 Lockpicking to open.

    Treasure Hunting

    • Treasure maps currently use the era-accurate positioning system, but drop the enhanced loot introduced in a later publish.

    Special Stones And In Game Currencies

    2021-06-21 01_38_21-Ultima Online - tr1age (UOAlive 2.0).png
    • There are Special stones near Zento Market Place in Tokuno.
    • They have Sovereigns which can be bought with Gold and used on the UOstore.
    • Or you can use Kudos which are rewarded for in game time.
    • There are no donation stones as this is a donation free server.

    UI Changes

    • Buff box works.
    • Enhanced Client works.
    • The skill title shown on your paperdoll will also be shown on hover of your character. Left click character to control titles.
    • [organizeme command will, well, organize you.
    • [bondinfo to check when a pet will be bonded with you
    • [spellbar
    Taming:
    • Dragons(DPS focused) have a chance to spawn a "RARE" type in which it will have the title Rare as well as be a special hue. This dragon will be a 3 slot instead of the normal 4. This makes them a lot more viable for tameable's rivaling CU's.
    • Greater Dragons(tankier), as well have a chance to spawn a "RARE" with a special title and hue, and indeed will also be 3 slot, as we found this to be in testing similar to the regular dragon in power due to the stat loss when tamed, but with different tanky-ness. This makes them a lot more viable for tameable's rivaling CU's.
    • Special Rare Nightmares with 1 Slot will NOW be LABELED at "Rare" so you know you have found something sick! And it will have a great hue!
    • [​IMG]
    • White Wyrms, Shadow Wyrms, and Serpentine Dragons now have a "RARE" variant as well, it will have the title Rare as well as be a special hue. These dragons will be a 3 slot instead of the normal 4 for more diversity.
    • [​IMG]
    • Dragons now have a chance to spawn as a hued exotic type. They have no special skills just a cool collector color!
      [​IMG]
    • We are continuing to balance tamable animals so the "Meta" is more diverse and fun. No one wants to have everyone with the same pets!

    MISC

    • Buying and selling when overweight will cause gold or items to be placed directly in your bank instead of falling to your feet.
    • Non-young players can still finish quests in Haven.
    • Potions stacks
    • Runebook use cooldown reduced to 1 second from 7.
    • Using an equipped Skinning Knife on a corpse will automatically cut and loot any hides the corpse may drop.
    • Male characters can ride unicorns too.
    • Female Characters can ride Kirin
    • Increased amount of reagents that vendors stock.
    • Skinning knife puts leather in bag.
    • Gold Vendor sell Trapped Pouches with 30 charges.
    • There are special trash barrels and bags available near Brit West Bank. These generate special currency used for certain rewards.
    • Stealth is automatically checked and re-checked when walking while hidden.
    • You can gain Spellweaving bonuses without needing other players at the arcane circle in Britain. A gate has opened in Trammel Britain Bank that will bring you to the Arcanist Circle in Fel to get a spellweaving stone without needing other players. There is a gate back on the other side.
    • [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Points of interest:
    • There are multiple player run establishments that can be found on the Special locations tab of the public moongates, such as taverns, public rune libraries, etc.
    • [​IMG]
    • Hang out in our upgraded beautiful central hub of Zento with player vendors and relaxing atmosphere! it is blessed and will drop double the Kudo's when in this area preparing for your next mission! [​IMG]
    • Or need some relaxation at the nostalgia of the Britain Bank beautified![​IMG]
