  • 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 25 % 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!

  • 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.

A major change was done to healing to give melee and paladin chiv builds a major buff since OSI kinda forgot about them. There are SO many options available to you now to not have to be a "sampire" or "tamer" for end game. Check out the patch notes here:

World and expansions

  • We are 100% OSI accurate 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)
    cX26ojF.png
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. You have 1 minute to loot your corpse before his minion literally eats it.

  • A pet resurrection stone in Zento

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!
  • RCULpO8.png

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.
  • It is DBL XP here and gives you bonus Kudos.

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.
  • DBL XP in dungeons

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

Magical Stones have been moved and updated, you can get there via the Moongate's "Special Locations". The Gold stone is now categorized and new items added. Event token stone will be next.
  • Es0izAd.jpg
  • SBhB4xm.png

  • 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.(these are obtained by being logged in. If you go AFK, makes sure to do it in a "blessed area", these include Zento Bank, Britain Bank, The Three Stone Tavern, and the Community Rune Library(always expanding).
  • 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:

There are 4 different types of new tame-ables in the world:

  • Exquisite - A different hue of a normal creature (collect them all)
  • Exotic - A powerful beast that may be a similar reskin with some different stats than other similar beasts. Can come in multiple colors
  • Rare - A very different version of an existing creature with different stats, tame-slots etc.
  • Legendary - A very very rare creature, with a one of a kind hue and stats.
-----------------------
In order to tame these harder hitting creatures you will need to adventure for them!

Instead of crazy timers we have made it so the mobs will share a spawner with other mobs. This means there is an RNG aspect to the actual mob spawning and you will need to fight your way through monsters to get it to spawn.

There are ways to know you are in the right place: the spawn will seem a little bit off for the area normally, and there will be sound ques as well as flavor text. So keep an eye out!

Some of these spawns have waves of beasts that must be defeated before you get to your tame-able creature!

We believe this is a happy middle ground for getting your epic pets an adventure versus a walk in the park, but also a rewarding way to get them as well! This caters to both casual players and hardcore. Ultimately making your time online valuable and not wasted.

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!
-------------------------

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!

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.

Dragons now have a chance to spawn as a hued exotic type. They have no special skills just a cool collector color!

There are special creatures you can tame that are "Naja" and "Cusidhe" equivalent to really change it up. These are considered Exotic.

Horse Barding Deeds mimic Swamp Dragon Barding so you can have cool looking horses instead of ugly swamp dragons:
