  1. Excuse me? I spent a lot of time to make that short quest (scripts, cameras, decoration, sounds, light effects, NPCs, easter eggs...) to make noobs able to farm meseta without actual gear. Some people can certainly testify how often they saw me on Qedit around March of this year (that was for this quest). As for Meseta Drops, editing ItemPT.json to change every single meseta entries minimum and maximum for each mob, for each box, for each difficulty, for each episode and for each section ID according to their old values (instead of straight replacing) would take so long that I had to make a script to artificially change them all. That's 26,840 different entries to edit. But you probably believe it was as simple as "add some zeros in this cell" and be done with it in 30 seconds? Even the solution of using a multiplier (like Happy Hours do) wouldn't work, because then rare monsters would give tens of thousands meseta while most regulars monsters would still give 3 digits meseta, making disparities way too big. Have you even thought about that? Of course not. The only things I didn't do in this update are the first two points: changing starting meseta and bank capacity (Thanks Soly for it by the way). How about you? Your only "contribution" in that update is asking Larva to change the bank capacity... which has already been suggested by countless members of this community. Shall we all thank you for spending 8 seconds of your time for this?

  2. A couple changes have been applied so that players can acquire meseta more easily by their own means. STARTING MESETA New characters now start with 15,000 meseta in their inventory (instead of 300). New accounts now start with 50,000 meseta in the shared bank (instead of 0). BANK CAPACITY The limit of Meseta you can store in every bank was increased from 999,999 to 9,999,999. Inventory limit remains unchanged. MESETA DROPS All meseta drops values have been increased. This applies to every episode (I, II and IV). Their frequency is the same (which means meseta won't drop more often). Boxes Normal: +250 to +500 Hard: +500 to +1000 V.hard: +750 to +1500 Ultimate: +1000 to +2000 Enemies Normal: +300 to +600 Hard: +600 to +1200 V.hard: +900 to +1800 Ultimate: +1200 to +2400 Bosses Normal: +2000 Hard: +4000 V.hard: +6000 Ultimate: +8000 Example: Viridia Bartles used to drop between 90 and 110 meseta. They will now drop between 1290 and 2510 meseta. QUEST: THE VALUE OF MONEY 2 A new quest where everyone can farm meseta is available. It is located in Episode 1 > One Person > Special Meseta > The Value of Money 2 After you helped a couple by telling Gizel to stop wasting their money for weapons in The Value of Money, the latter would like to thank you for the savings you had them achieve. Quest reward is the same for all difficulties: 150,000 meseta. Please let me know if you find any bug or typo. And as a reminder, here is the list of other Ultima top quest meseta rewards (on Ultimate) Mysteries of the Void: 100,000 The Tentacular Truth: 100,000 Battle of Beaufort: 100,000 Caverns of Gloom: 200,000 full clear The Gloom Spire: 200,000 base, +50,000 per rescue Tower of Dreams: 325,000 Intelligence Defense Systems: 150,000 main quest, 329,748 with bonus room Harmony of Despair 2: 333,333 Cal's Clock Challenge: 400,000 for full clear with 4 players Capital of The Unreturned: from 125,750 to 750,000 depending on ending ____ Note that Game Masters will no longer host "Meseta rooms".

  5. I wouldn't necessarily say that Ultima has perished, but rather that it's become a shadow of it's former self โ€” a shell of what it used to be. And that's for many reasons. Namely because of Ultima's inability to adapt and change. There needs to be a shakeup. And in more ways than one. Where are all of the Ultima staff? Shiida is often-times, the ONLY active GM on the server. If other staff members are unable or unwilling to step up, then there are a handful of select individuals who would be willing to. While we do appreciate all that she does, we can't expect Shiida to carry Ultima on her back forever. Which leads me to my next point; I believe that it would be beneficial for Ultima at this time for @Larva to elect a staff member to have elevated administrative privileges. More specifically, with the ability to start events in a timely manner. There are players that are very hyped for an event, but if it's delayed passed the expected start date, then their enthusiasm is deflated and their attention will be placed elsewhere. Ultima needs that enthusiasm, and that can be preserved with punctual event start times. Shiida would be the perfect staff member to assume this role. In the same vein as punctuality, the happy hour changes that were announced 9 months ago have yet to be implemented. The two biggest events of the year are coming โ€” it would be great if the HH changes were active for them. An Ultima social media/Twitch presence could also be a gamechanger. In the right hands, of course. Now a few points that I believe would help to bolster player retention; I agree with @C01D1 in that the past forum events were great and were a fun way to keep the community engaged. While it's true that anyone can create such events, 'official' staff ran mini-events would be welcomed. I've also suggested in the past for 5x exp and/or green names to be turned on during event off-time. This would give players something to do when there's no active event.

  6. I can't be bothered to read the rest of the thread but I'll lay my thoughts out. Ultima's decline ultimately boils down to how the server is managed by Larva. It's not OP weapons or any custom stuff, I believe there's an audience for that but it isn't fulfilled by Ultima. It's the silly stuff like PGF being available one month out of the year. It's needing 80 hit just to hit certain enemies, therefore encouraging people to donate. It's the lack of any kind of change to better this server and has just be in the same state it was 3-4 years ago. It's events always starting almost a month late sometimes. It's toxic people, or even worse(such as pedophiles and conspiracy theorists),getting warned 10 times instead of being banned. It's the happy hour system that only encourages playing in 3 hour bursts instead of more often. It's the lack of anything to encourage people to play outside events, since most things worth using are event online. As a (ex)player, it's just obvious there's hardly any effort being put into this server anymore and it'll stay declining in population until there's an effort put forth by Larva to actually listen to his player base and admins who play this game to improve this server. As someone who's probably played close to 20,000 hours, I don't want to see this server die off. I would love to see this server alive again, but just letting it idle isn't going to fix anything. We can complain all we want but ultimately there's little we can do as players. You'd think having your server dwindle down to 10-20 players online would be enough of a kick in the pants to change something but apparently not. Ultima's problem ultimately dwindles down to Larva's inaction to change anything within the server. This isn't a hate post aimed at Larva, it's just stating facts from someone who's put entirely too much time into this game.

  10. PLOT: Could you help me? I hit my head while hunting on Ragol, got taken to the infirmary, and now I can't seem to find my VJAYA. Idk where I lost it or what stats it has ๐Ÿ˜…. Sorry I'm really not much help, but if you bring it to me I'm sure I'll recognize it! 11 people have signed up so far!! EVENT HAS BEGUN!!! Sign ups end in !!! Sign up price is 3pds! (I'll go broke if I front the whole prize by myself) To enter you can message me on discord at: toiletman74 (prefered) or you can message me here on the forums to set up a time to meet and pick up your entry fee The event begins as soon as the sign up timer reaches 0! Rules: After sign ups end there will be 72 hours where you will hunt VJAYA. Whoever shows me the highest HIT% VJAYA they can find wins PD = HIT%! -The entry price must be received before the timer above reaches 0. (if you need to you can have someone else pay for your entry if your not on around the times that I'm on) -You cannot enter a VJAYA that was not found within the 72 hour period. -Ties will be decided by whoever reported the VJAYA to me first (so get em in fast!) -You get to keep the VJAYA (or if you wanna donate it I'll raffle it off to the people who didn't win) -Send a screen shot of the untekked VJAYA to me either in a message here on the forums or on discord (toiletman74) I'll add a leader board when the event starts so we can keep track of who's in the lead and how much HIT% you should be gunning for. Happy hunting! In the future I'd like to have prizes for 2nd(PD = 1/2 HIT%), 3rd(PD = 1/4 HIT%), and 4th(PD = 1/4 HIT%) but unfortunately I don't really know how many people are going to register for the event and I don't have the pds myself to afford that many prizes lol Leaderboard! (I'll keep this updated as submissions get sent in) 1st place: @CapT kIDD with a 50 hit VJAYA! 2nd place: @Notawakejake with a 40 hit VJAYA. 3rd place: @Crank & @toiletman with 35 hit VJAYAs EVENT END TIMER!!!

  11. I can testify that I saw R-78 working in qedit in the dead of the night (for France time) for hours. Also even the ''simplest'' of quests takes a long time to create. It's hard to gauge how tedious it can be without having any experience actually producing a quest. This is a great addition by the way. Being a meseta hoarder myself, it's a good thing and it may influence me towards actually using charge weapons. Probably not, tho. Good job on everyone involved.

  12. Hello everyone ! how are you? having fun? or just bored ? Ultima its what all the members together brings to the community. And we have all kind of members here, those who love to be here, to share and enjoy the server and what we have to offer, and those who like to just been around for nostalgia, and those who like to be around for... i dont know .. maybe it's just part of our life. It's true that we don't have the amount of active players as we did once, I have my thought on that of why that happened but will keep them for myself since I see things from another perspective. Anyway , my two cents .. I always share ultima links and advertise in the forums that im active, maybe you guys shall do the same in the places that you guys hang around. I'm not a social media person , I don' even have tiktok lol. anyway thanks for been around, we are few but still present. !!!

  15. Hey Larva, thanks for chiming in. I personally don't think Ultima is dead at all and appreciate you even still hosting it. Certainly not when people still care enough to talk about it even if its negative heh. The community is small but passionate. I do however think that bringing in some new staff with fresh ideas will increase community engagement and QOL. We also need to get some of the items fixed up like Ultima Bringers. We also need to really be open to change. This can come as weapon balance and class balance, quests, new events and FORUM contests much like Saith was doing a few years ago. I share the server out where I can, the Ultima trailer still gets views and questions. Cheers.

  24. As a new player to the server, so far i've enjoyed the exp boost, the happy hours and just the general generosity of older players. But one issue I definitely ran into was the rather dramatic jump between ultimate and Vhard. I've never played on a server or the og where the difference was so bad. I'm nearly 120 and unless i have a 200 player support, im stuck to playing vhard. I don't have much time to play due to life in general so this is quite the issue for someone like me. To be fair, I've had a number of 200's really help me out with gear and their time but i also like to progress at my own pace but there's no real means to do so as far as i've seen. It was said earlier in this thread but i'd put a heavy vote down for having an og mode. Just my 2 cents though, i've only been here a few weeks now. I get the spike in difficulty as probably meant for the players who've been here for a very long time and not for new players. (And i know there is supposed to be a jump from vhard to ult but im certain this server has adjusted it as 80 once upon a time used to be here one could attempt ult and not get flattened by Sil so dramatically haha). post edit: Also maybe removing the mag feed timer altogether. Speed up the time one can sink into the game. It's an old game, it's hard to imagine new players wanting to spend so many hours on the little things like this vs actually playing the game.

  29. this. but also. if we just had a simple way to EARN HAPPY HOURS i think we could fix things. something like 10 roct ultimates need to be complete and server automatically starts happy hour. or perhaps its triggered by a certain number of people logged in. idk what criteria there should be, but if we simply had a way to earn happy hours we could see a lot more engagement

  39. Hate to say, but I couldn't agree more... What exactly does @Larva need to make the changes? Is it funding? Is he not making enough money? Do we need to pay a coder to help with adding new content and updating the game play? Are we just not open to making new changes? What do we have to do to get someone who cares? Because the server is definitely overall neglected... That statement has nothing to do with adding new content or making changes to the server. Nothing to do with OP equips or changing drop rates. We don't even have the staff to get events on time. So when it comes to advertising, supposedly posting on forums, and Twitch Streaming... What are we really doing here? Because when people come, they'll stay for a little bit and then realize the server had the Valentine's day event banner for 8 months and was just changed a few weeks ago... Hell, make it a see all tell all. If we need funding for professional advertising. Say that and start a GoFund me on the forms. That would be more proactive than what's happening now. I've lived and played PSO since Dreamcast days. Played through the FSOD days of Gamecube Ep1&2 and BB official Sega servers, and before I went to college in 2012 I was on Schthack's Server. It really does hurt to see something with so much potential - rot. Even now, almost over 20 years later since the original release of PSOBB... THIS server has the potential to make a comeback and have hundreds of players. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and hoping for new results. The state of the server won't change until we make changes... and it starts with Leadership-Larva/GMs(hiring new people) and then goes down the line to players and community... That's my 2 cents... Love all you guys.

  42. we just need one of yall to make some shorts on tiktok or something to advertise and we would have players pretty easy imo. the players we do get from time to time dont stick around very long though and im not exactly sure what the issue is. perhaps its because we give them too much free stuff. then again i gave capt kidd some free stuff when he started and he is still with us so idk. thoughts? is it because larva does not start events on time? is it because of the events people are turned off? should we have a secondary method of obtaining event items like a weekly mini event?
