So it's been about 1 month since I started.  So far I've made 5 different characters:
1) General fighter - quick start for gold - will turn into a Sampire
2) Fisherman/Scribe - because fishing and Tidus stopped supplying runebooks. :)
3) Stealth tamer - because?  Unsure, I like lurking...
4) Peace tamer - duh
5) Miner/lumberjacker/tinker (just started)

It's been fun and you can tell that everything I found annoying with vanilla UO had probably annoyed the staff as well.  Since you can withdraw from your bank at nearly any transaction, you don't have to carry gold with your when you buy vender things like scrolls and regs.  Also the portable moongate is really a handy thing.  Finally, I really like how they made skill mods useful on magic items by not counting the value toward your own skill cap.  So it's easy to make your character more flexible by adding a few different jewelry items.

I just started doing the taming BODs as well.  I keep getting distracted with other little projects on the server.  There really is a bunch to do over and above the normal UO fare.  Probably the best thing you can say is that the staff is clearly active with the normal shard day-to-day.

I'm glad you made it over here.  It's no small statement to say that your scripts, and particularly your HW quest script are the reasons this site still exists today.  People like freddy who took it over for you, and others like myself and Cerveza were inspired enough by the potential of the script that we continued with sites like this up until this day.  If it wasn't for EasyUO putting their foot down and prohibiting your work from seeing the light of day, then sites like WinUO, UOCoders and this site would never have existed.

I wish I could take your path of leaving this game to just nostalgia, but every time I start playing when I say I'll never play again - I tend to have a blast. It's a much needed diversion from all the sillyness in the world.

Anyhow, welcome and glad you succeeded and prosper!

Best,
TM

Seems like a lot of effort for very little return but could still be a fun little project.

That's what I was thinking on both accounts.  But for the lay-scriper, there's a bunch of good learning there.

I'm pretty sure something like this existed at some point, but it would be great to have a modern take on this idea.  You should gofer it!

I donated a little bit out of appreciation and not only did I get the VnV coins, but a nice set of deco items.  Very cool!

What do you have in mind for this script to do?  There's lots of different types of farming scripts.

I got my last shingles vaccine on Thursday and it has knocked me for a loop....

My girly recently went through that as well.  She doesn't get sick often, but man she was really floored by it

Just logged in to find the server reverted or something - ALL of the training I did today is gone! What the heck happened?
Got my first shot a week ago and it knocked me on my ass the next day, I heard the second shot is usually worse...ugh, good times LOL.

I posted over at VnV, but I guess there was a corruption in the save file.  Tidus popped in to explain it.  Going back to about 11pm last night.  I lost my MIBs I fished up today but that's not a big deal since they'll get fished up again since I'm still tweaking my Autofarmer.

It's not.  (scriptuo.com that is)  It's not a big deal though.  VnV seems to be located at a different address.  Tidus might have it at the same location that serves scriptuo.com, but the SSL of the scriptuo forum is a separate thing.

I finally got my SW going.  The spawn magically was smaller for some reason.  Not sure of the mechanics of that.  It's still pretty crazy though.  Took a while to solo the minions and overseers because I had dropped meditation so mana recharged very slowly and I had to work to isolate the creatures from the surrounding spawn so I wouldn't get ganked.  Now I just need to fill my SW spellbook.

I did a site maintenance and repair, so hopefully the database is all happy again.

You might check and see if all the .NET support is added in your Windows Apps section of your settings.    I think it's in Settings/Apps/Optional Features/More Windows Features.  A box will pop up with a few .NET selections for 3.5 and 4.8

Also try and update manually from MS:

Oh yeh, I forgot to change that....  Stand by!  Give it a whirl.  If there is still the bug, then I can just hand them to you when I'm back a bit later.  I see your character name now.

@Gad: I stuck a couple MIBs in my cat mailbox that you should be able to access.  Go directly NW from where the Yew moongate once was until you find a small clearing with a single sandstone custom house.  It's actually a bit more north past the larger clearing.

The VnV folder has a subfolder that has the game files in it. When linking razor to it, make sure to chose the UO VNV sub folder inside the main one.

Yes, and that sub-folder is only placed there after you have any kind of download from the VnV patch server.  If you don't see that folder, then you haven't started the patch process, or you have specifically said you wanted the information placed somewhere else.  By default, the patched client is downloaded to the same location where you run the patch application.
