    I've been here for awhile, and I wanted to finally share some information on a little unknown service provided by a upstanding citizen of Britannia, Joe the IDOC Bot. This service offers free, hand delivered reagents to you all day.

    Ordering reagents from Joe the IDOC Bot is simple. Just follow these steps:
    • Find a house that is greatly worn.
    • Bring a character with the ability to steal, cast reveal and detect hidden
    • Wait for Joe to recall in (sometimes he will change his name, silly Joe, you still wear your big red deer hat so we know it's you)
    Joe the IDOC Bot isn't very clever. You just need to know this:
    • He recalls in and immediately hides, waits 10 seconds and recalls out.
    • He recalls in every 20 minutes, almost on the dot, when a house is Greatly Worn
    • He recalls in every 10 minutes, almost on the dot, when a house is IDOC
    • He only has 1 recall spot, usually a few tiles away from the house sign (Hint: Joe doesn't like when you put a table or crate to block his recall spot as a mystery man will often show up and say "I must consider my sins")
    • When he takes damage, he burns a charge on his runebook and recalls
    • It seems that when his blood moss drops to a certain level, his macro assumes it's being stolen and he uses a charge on his runebook and recalls -- in other words, snag his root first.
    • His pouch is hidden under the snow pile. You can barely get it, but you can.
      • If you have trouble getting to his pouch, check "Auto-Queue Object Delay Action" and set the delay to 2000ms. This will let you move things quickly to be able to target his reagent pouch.

    In an hour and some change, he personally hand delivered nearly 1000 of each recall reagent and over 100 greater cure potions. All for free. All I had to do was stand there. Look at Joe in a Waldo sandwich!

    If Joe's service is looking for customer feedback, I'd recommend recalling in and just dropping the reagents on the ground and save your customer's the hassle of going through this process. In the mean time, this macro will help make using Joe's service a bit easier:

    Code:
    Assistant.Macros.MacroCastSpellAction|48
    Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|30
    Assistant.Macros.TargetRelLocAction|1|0
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.4000000
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickAction|773066|400
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.2000000
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickAction|1111058872|3701
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.2000000
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickAction|1121516941|3705
    In the above macro, note that the first two Double Click actions on 0xBCBCA and 0x423969B8 will never change as long as Joe doesn't come in with a new character (he hasn't thus far). Those 2 are his player serial and his player's backpack serial and will always work. You may have to retarget the 3rd DoubleClick action if he replaces his reagent pouch. When he recalls in, this will cast reveal, open his paperdoll, open his backpack, and open his reagent pouch.

    I hope all of you can take advantage of this service has that has delivered to me thousands of free reagents.

    Good luck out there fellow travelers. Keep your pixels safe!

    Bonus: While you're waiting for Joe, why don't you try to find me? https://imgur.com/gallery/8exqx

    Well, well, well. Look who found who this time.

    Ok, I get it. Feedback isn't always easy to take. I merely suggested that it would be easier to drop your reagents on the ground instead of having your customers have to run a macro. If you're going to run a successful business, you need to learn to differentiate feedback from criticism.

    Also, can I have my hat back please?

    [​IMG]

    To all Joe's Reagent Delivery Service customers:

    I can confirm the macro still works, except he changed the bag under the snow pile. Can you at least post the latest bag serial some place do we can keep our macros updated to use your service? But again, why make your customers have to edit macros.

    Code:
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickAction|1102618772|3702
    Of course, despite the slight misunderstanding above, it would be rude if I didn't thank you again for your delivery service. 20 minutes on the dot you handsome red bearded son of a bitch.

    Hail citizens of Britannia, Joe asked me to put together a banner that he could use to advertise his services and post it here.

    Also, he's wanted to me to tell you that he's been spotted at coords 3136, 391 next to a greatly worn villa so except him every 20 minutes for many hours! Thanks Joe!

    Note: He's one tile west of those coords but you don't want to block his delivery! The macro in the OP still works, though you don't need the last part since he's been kind enough today to just leave them all in his main bag. Now that's better customer service.

    It looks like Joe may have fallen off his horse. [​IMG]

    I found it to be a very poor response to some good customer feedback.

    “Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.”

    The very moment you figure this out and understand completely will be the day you finally understand UO.
