So long, and thanks for all the fish!

So I've been out of the scripting business for quite a while now.  I've also been pretty much out of the UO business for even longer.  I think it's time for me to hang up everything for good.

So with that, at the end of the month I'm going to put the site into maintenance mode so that it can be used as a reference, but all new content and development will end.

Now if someone would like to step forward and take things over, we can talk about doing a transfer so that the site can proceed forward.  I've got some pretty high standards in that regard, so if it's not transferred to the right person(s) then I'd rather see it just go dormant.  This community has been through too much with losing content, so I don't want to see that happen and I won't let that happen.

So with that, it's been fun.  But as they say, "All good things do come to and end".

And yes, it's not April 1st.  heh

Ouch, you're like one of the pillars keeping a lot of us "in the biz" (20 years later!). Sad news indeed.

Thanks for that. Now that Cheffe is mostly dormant too anyone who doesn't know how to update after a patch will literally be unable to keep scripting, perhaps a guide on how to do update could be written by someone who knows the process? I'm able to write my own stuff at this point but have relied on you guys to keep updating since you know more than I do, I doubt I'm alone on that.

What about rebirth, still going to maintain that? When UO went down yesterday I actually played there for a lil bit, lol.

Anyway, all of the above is selfish but it comes to mind so I figured I'd mention it. My biggest feeling here however is simply thank you, for this community, these forums, and answering so many of my questions along the way. I wish you the best moving forward, it's literally been a pleasure learning from you.

All Hail the legendary TM!!

Well damn. This is worse than UO itself shutting down.

Thank you for everything TM! After UOC went down, you brought us all back together here. I appreciate your years of dedication to the community! It definitely won't be the same without you!

I second that.  I wish I knew how.  Anyway, thanks again TrailMyx.

TM where do I start .......

This site and your dedication to it, to UO, to scripting and beyond has amazed and humbled me.

I am a nobody, a newbie at this scripting biz, I get fuddled and lost, confused and bewildered.
I post here and your responses never make me fill stupid or a bother.

You have guided me on to understand and alter scripts; I dont think I will ever be able to create my own Im just not that kinda gal.

This community you have founded here is one of the most positive and respectful within all the UO based forums/sites.

I have found myself more than once, scrolling back the Shoutbox journal just to read the reach-outs, question, answers and comments.

I for one will defiantly miss you

Dearest Trailmyx aka TM.

I echo all the sentiment that others have posted before me and will post after me.  This site is probably one of the only sites that keep me playing Ultima Online.  I have played for over 18 years and I have been a member here for over 10 years.  Your dedication to these Forums is unmatchable.  Who else could there be to put in the time, energy, insight, and knowledge that you have done all these years?  I hope someone steps up and grabs the 'bull by the horns and runs with it'.  I for one do not want to see the living part of these Forums just wither and fade away, as you state it as "only a reference". 

Many thanks to you for sharing this with me and the entire Ultima Online Community (including the free sites).  I really appreciate everything that you have done for us here.  You have guided, took people under your wing, and inspired others to take up your torch.  Scripting is not easy.  It takes patience, time, and energy.  Oops, I forgot knowledge, plus a willingness to learn.  You gave us all that...!

I have tried to contribute where I could and will continue to (if I am allowed to).  I am by no means a Scripter.  I just love, use, and respect what it takes to put your focus on writing one (or more).

What else can I say...if and when you do take off, please crack the door open and at least say "Hi" once in a while.  You will be terribly missed...!

TM it cant be time to hang up the shoes yet. I have been part of this website for years now and just like many others you have helped us in many ways. I do understand scripting for you isnt the real reason you kept this site going. this site is more of a family type community that shares ideas. its going to be hard to see you go. the difference between you and cheffe was that you actually took some time to chat with people and that can never be forgotten. i do wish you good fortunes in the future whatever it may hold but remember that there are many many of your UO family that will miss you.

In this day and age of sites full of entitled SOBs, dweebs, and soulless entities, it was kinda fun to force a little civility via throat-punch and degradation.  heh  Thanks for noticing!  :)

... the difference between you and cheffe was that you actually took some time to chat with people and that can never be forgotten.

Yes, that was really the main drive to create this place.  I could see a community wanting to happen, but it just wasn't going to without a little support from the staff.

What else can I say...if and when you do take off, please crack the door open and at least say "Hi" once in a while.  You will be terribly missed...!

I will drop in from time to time.  I won't completely disappear.  My EUO scripting knowledge will though... heh

Well damn. This is worse than UO itself shutting down.
Thank you for everything TM! After UOC went down, you brought us all back together here. I appreciate your years of dedication to the community! It definitely won't be the same without you!

I honestly really enjoyed it, OID.  I really do love this community.  Once people submitted to the will of, well just be nice dammit, then it was a pleasure.  UOC was a lesson on how to "not end a site".  This community will survive; one way or another.

My biggest feeling here however is simply thank you, for this community, these forums, and answering so many of my questions along the way.

You are welcome!  It's been a pleasure, Gem

Trailmyx i salute for your service and the legacy you leave behind. ;)

As fellow scripter, as colleague on rebirthuo and member of this community i dont need to say how much positive impressions and imprints you
created. I joined this forum in january 2009 as a 21 years old person with very less knowlegde about development and an intermediate level of wisdom about uo.
Now 8 years and 9 months later i found my place in the IT-Science working as full fledged developer, runned rebirthuo, being part of the stealth client team.  My english also got more polished since our first encounter  :o :D ;D . This also is a result through your trust and efforts towards this community. In the early years i admired you and the elite members a lot. Your shares towards the community inflamed a continuously interest for me towards ultima online.

I also feel honored that we worked together on rebirthuo, the freeshard Tidus, Tecmo and me created and being supported by you since 2015. RebirthUO without you would be not the place we want or our player want. And your retirement is a huge loss.
I wont forget all the great time and discussions we had about easyuo, stealth and rebirthuo and also the unique experience we displayed towards our community in that aspect.

I wish you for your personal life the best luck and fortune and that all you desire for your life will be fullfilled.If you ever happen to be around my area, you are free to contact me for coffee or a german Schnitzel :P

When you get to Seattle. Dinner at the Metropolitan Grill is on me. Prime Filet, 4 oz., American Wagyu Filet, 4 oz.  & Ohmi Filet, 4 oz.* 125$ plus Alaskan King Crab Legs. Market price as always. You're paying the tip. They have Hokkaido Snow Beef too, but that's 120$ for a 6 oz. filet. The other way you get to try 3, 4 oz. steaks for 125$. Much better deal. Just let me know.  ;)

My "daughter" goes to school as SPU, so I do find myself in Seattle from time to time.  So be careful what you wish for!

What can I say; I'm humbled, my friend.  My fondest memories of Bavaria was both the Schnitzel and spaetzle.  Oh, and the relentless hospitality. 

Thanks so much for all your help and for the community - I still study your subs regularly for tips and best practice.  Wishing you the best of luck in your break from UO!


I wouldn't go so far as say they were "best" practices.  heh.  But learning to script is all about learning from sample code.  Glad you found some use from it.
