New fences and the siege update (18.11.2022)
Updated game files. All players need to download the update and extract it to the game folder.
The update will reset the patches on art.mul (hemp, cubes, etc.), you can reinstall the patch from here. Gumps and Verdata will not be affected by the update.
1) Added a large number of new types of fences (more than 10), including metal, stone-metal, wood and wood with stone. They are available for crafting through the Blacksmith and Carpentry menus. Some parts of the fence require stone, as a reminder, low-grade metal can be exchanged for stone at Stonemason in the large mine of Minoc.
A significant part of the classic fences have changed colors, but the fences already created in the game will retain the old shade.
2) Updated the siege battlefield in Rheos to make the battle more interesting. Before you go there, you MUST update the files, otherwise you will get stuck and become easy prey for enemies.
Thanks to Max for preparing the file updates and the new fences.
P.s. Happy Holidays to Latvians. :)
1) Jewelry with lower level gems will give more magic defence, for example, Emerald and Ruby wil give 11 instead of 10. Diamond, Star sapphire and Ancient jewelry did not change.
2) Healing an ally will take away Total Damage points equal to 100% of HP healed if a paladin is healing, and 200% of HP healed if another class is healing. Previously took 150% as the paladin's bonus wasn't working correctly.
3) When chopping Willow, Cedar, Oak, and Redwood, more logs will be cut per blow of a hatchet.
4) Voting for server gump has been updated.

I choose the winners personally, according to my subjective opinion. Those media that can be used in advertising or useful to players have a clear preference. The results of the competition will be summed up in January 2023.

Summer Event 2022 on UORPG
1) All players can receive a month of Premium and one gift by filling out an application on the forum.
2) Overseas merchants arrived to Altair. In their land, there has been a crop failure and they are buying up food from local farmers. You can find seeds in all monsters drop. Seeds can be locked down with key on the territory of your house, then the harvest will start to grow.
You need to check the seedings. Plants need watering, you can buy special barrel for wattering from Provisioner, fill it with water (in any pond) and water the garden. You can level of the water by clicking on the sprouts. You can use any healing potions to get rid from them, such potions have insecticidal properties.
If you wont follow your garden plants will lose their lives, and you will get less doubloons from overseas merchants for your harvest, or the plant will dry up completely.
Collected harvest you should sell to overseas merchants on Altair, you will get doubloons for that. The quantity of recieved doubloons depends on the demand for products (blueberries will cost more than potatoes) and the value of the variety (widespread, rare or unique). For doubloons from overseas merchants you can bargain the following goods:
— Overseas Merchant's Box, can contain Enchant scrolls, information about deposits, artifacts, as well as overseas horses and mustangs (a new type of mount);
— Hammer of Doom - the most powerful hammer in the game, has a chance to stun the enemy (like the Hammer of the Dwarf King)
— King's of Dead Book - the best book of necromancy on the server;
— Bow of Equality - great bow with a dispel effect on arrow hits, bow damage increased (up to 68 in the war and 65 in the peace projection of the world)
You will be able to find seeds in monster drop till an end of the summer. Overseas merchants will stay on Altair until 14th September.
2) Wywern's loot has been updated, now you can drop Dragon Talisman and dragon scales from it.
3) Serpent's Talisman will give 10 energy protection instead of fire protection (due to the introduction of Dragon Talisman).
4) Robe of Basilisk in combat projection (not Blessed) will give 400 max intoxication and 0.5 detox (was 300 and 0.3).
