Hello everyone, we have finished applying the following patch to the main server: https://uo4.life/patchnotes - Thanks for your patience!

  • An issue with lockpicks not working that are sold by the Nujelm Treasure Hunting vendor has been resolved
  • An issue with any player being able to open an unlocked door on plot causing it to refresh regardless of permission has been resolved
    - An issue with Faction stones not activating properly has been resolved
  • An issue with the F button not toggling the Friends window has been resolved
    - An issue with Runebook cast charge not being interruptible has been resolved
    - Runebook cast charge spell text has been optimized to appear the same as if you are casting Recall
    - An issue with being able to duplicate runes in a Runebook has been resolved
    - An issue with being able to use a Runebook outside your inventory from the hotbar has been resolved
  • An issue with alerts not being received prior to an auto-restart occurring has been resolved
  • An issue with logout times lasting longer than expected has been resolved, changes as follows:
    - Logging out in a house you are at least friended to, or inside of a town inn, while not in combat against monsters or players, will now log you out instantly
    - Logging out anywhere else, or while in combat will log you out after 60 seconds, subject to review -- the previous time was 60 seconds, so we're going to stick to that for now
  • An issue with some commands not working has been resolved: /myjail /enchant /myenchant -- if you find any other commands are not working please send a bug report, thanks.
  • An issue has been resolved with Fish not being recognized with Gardening
  • A new command /refresh has been added to aid with some graphical glitches that occur occasionally; this command will freeze you in place for a couple of seconds, while refreshing the view of objects on your screen. This can help solve issues where a player appears naked and unmounted when they are in fact not naked and mounted. It also aids with decorating objects on plots that appear to move up while adjusting them; refreshing after adjusting these items will subsequently show the objects in their correct position.
  • an issue has been resolved with bandage buff-icon spam
    - an issue has been resolved with maker's mark being applied crafted items incorrectly or with someone else's name in some cases
  • Fishing while in a Guarded location will now only yield fish; for other Fishing rewards, you'll have to step out of Guards protection
  • An issue has been resolved with double clicking a fire beetle activating smelting ability instead of opening it's backpack as intended
  • An issue has been resolved causing mobs to sometimes continue attacking after a player becomes hidden; damage should still apply from delayed damage like Poison or other delayed spells, while hidden, but mobs should de-aggro properly now
  • An issue has been resolved causing the server to freeze in some cases when ejecting/banning mobs or yourself from a plot

Santa has closed access to his workshop in order to start working on next Christmas. Bye Santa!

  • At last, the long-standing bug causing the server to freeze sometimes when players die while poisoned has been resolved
  • An issue has been resolved preventing dead characters from using teleporters
