Sorry for the delay on this patch. With my IRL work load going a bit crazy (year end deadlines) and a new baby arriving things have been a bit hectic. We have added a bunch of new volunteers to help share the load and will get back to our usually somewhat late development timeline rather than the very late method. I do take some pride in the fact the server has been stable for over 100 days without a memory leak or performance issues. Not many, if any, UO servers can claim this level of stability. Starting on February 11th Players logging in will find a special gift bag in their bank. Just some fun staff to apologize for the delay in getting this all together. Players will have a few days to claim these (it will be brief) in order to reward our players who stuck it out in the interim. Christmas Reward Store Update - Updated the Christmas store to have the 2018 selection of items. - Implemented a large holiday coin lottery with over 40 prizes. - These items will be available until November 2019. - Players can read more about the items available in the lottery here. http://uorforum.com/threads/the-christmas-raffle-prize-list-and-details.40042/ Platinum Store Marble Island Raffle - In order to return the marble island houses back to players after they were donated to the server we have created a simple raffle system. - Players can risk varying amounts of platinum to spin for a chance to win one of these houses. - You can read more about this system here. http://uorforum.com/threads/the-renaissance-platinum-raffle-marble-island.40037/ Halloween Bugfixes - Made a few small changes to the AI, difficulty, and loot drops for various new monsters added for this years event. - These changes will go into effect for the 2019 event. - Fixed a few invalid items that were dropping during the event. Halloween Scoreboards - Added a system to export the results from the Halloween night of horrors 2 update. - This information will be accessibly in your player profile in a future update to the website. - For the 2019 Night of Horrors 2 event it will be updated live as you take part in the event. - This system will be used for the upcoming summer event as well. Fix it Vendor - As usual this vendor is available in the event lobby to resolve any of these problems. - Dragging a glowing spear (that looks like a skull) onto the vendor will return the correct glowing spear (usable rare spear). - Leather Bustiers of Domination when targeted with the appraise command will be given the correct name. - Hue 2118 sandals will be given the correct name when targeted with the appraise command Christmas Instances - Reduced the requirement for spawning the Grinch from 9 stolen presents to 8. 10 still spawn in the event area however. Runebook Pen - Added a new item that can be used to duplicate one runebooks runes to another runebook. - Both runebooks must be in your pack and closed to be copied. - Any runes in the destination runebook will be removed. - The name of the runebook will also be transferred. - These are charged items with limited uses, so choose your copying carefully. - There is no skill requirement on the use of these items.
