  1. In order to promote multiplayer games on Ultima, Individual Dropstyle DARs (Drop Anything Rates) have been increased to the following: 1 player: 100% => 100% 2 players: 80% => 93% 3 players: 70% => 90% 4 players: 60% => 88% However, Guidelines have been updated to prevent abuses: You are no longer allowed to use multiple characters with Individual Dropstyle enabled in order to get multiple additional drops for yourself. From now on, if you want to use multiple characters in the same active room, Shared Dropstyle must be enabled. Type /dropstyle 0 in the lobby before making your room for that purpose. You are allowed to use multiple characters on Pioneer II (bank, feeding, trades and transfers purposes) on any dropstyle. You are still allowed to use multiple characters for quest rewards farming (Christmas Catastrophe, Raid on Central Tower, Power Plant Plight, Harmony of Despair I etc) or multiple leveling (Central Control Area etc) but Shared Dropstyle must be enabled when doing so. Exceptions: Using a second character in the following quests for support tasks on Individual Dropstyle is still acceptable (as you will get kicked if you can’t control them), as long as other room players agree with it: - Beyond the Horizon - Simulator 2.0 - World of Illusion And quests that require an individual ticket to play: - Harmony of Despair II (Ultimate) And obviously, any quests that do not involve item loots are also excluded from those rules (Gallon's Shop, The Beak's Cafe, etc). Violating those rules and abusing the Individual Dropstyle can lead you to Game Master warnings, disconnections or bans (if intentionally repeated offense). Of course, we are all open-minded: if you are seen using several characters in an individual dropstyle free roam Forest for example, everyone can guess you are obviously not trying to exploit the system and there will be no problem. So no need to worry about that. Just don't think about abusing PSO2 dropstyle anymore. The new rates, as well as rules, are open to future adjustments. Thank you for your understanding and have fun!

  2. Shiida's Hit Event Hello everybody, This Weekend we are doing a mini-event that will allow you to add hit to your weapons. Erinys the little witch needs 3 main ingredients in order to make a magic potion that will improve your weapons' accuracy: - Solid bones from a ferocious animal - Leather from a primate - D-cellular type aluminium from a creature's core Phase 1 - Searching and collecting ingredients Date: July 23rd 21:00 (this post time) to July 25th 23:00 GMT You will have 50 hours to find where the badges are located then farm them. Don't worry their drop rate is super easy, and it is all IDs. There is one badge per episode, use the hints above. You can post your finding in this topic to update the small table below this post. If you spent more than 20 minutes finding nothing, then you are probably hunting in wrong area or missing the key enemy. There will be NO Happy Hour for the whole duration of this phase because again the drop rates are specifically easy (and equality reasons), so only your time and efforts will be rewarding! Phase 2 - Ressources trading Date: July 26th to July 30th Use those 5 days to trade with other players if you are short on a specific badge, have too many of another one that you are willing to sell or donate etc. Gather your badges, decide which weapons you want to upgrade and have your items ready when you join the redeem room next phase. Phase 3 - Weapons upgrades Date: July 31st to August 1st The redeem will take place ONLY during that weekend so please do not ask to redeem your badges BEFORE the 31st. If you cannot log on during the weekend, ask a friend do it for you. And if you have no friend to ask, or somehow missed me, send me a PM with details about what you have, what you want to redeem and their location (guildcard number + slot). Price: 5 Weapons Leather Badge + 5 Weapons Aluminium Badge + 5 Weapons Bone Badge = 5% Hit to add (You need all 3 types of badges!) Rules: Max hit on a weapon: 70% Attributes relocation: No Dark weapons: Yes Do not forget to use minimap items / floor reader / rare sound because Weapons Badges come in green boxes. Good luck! (and as usual, big thanks to @Soly for helping me out with everything :3)

  4. People who troll are one thing, it can be annoying, it can be funny, but people who actively give new players, returning players, and old players a genuine hard time for simply no reason just makes playing on Ultima an unpleasant experience for everyone. There's just no reason for people like him to be around and be rude to people. It's been like this for a long time now, I've heard nothing but bad things about him, had no good experiences with him personally, and even in the discord the other week I was watching him attack people for virtually no reason. It just gives Ultima a bad reputation in general. He talks down to every player, takes everything personally, and targets people. I've heard from multiple people that they don't even come around anymore or talk here because of him. He doesn't own this place, the only thing he does is push people away from it. It's sad that nothing has been done about this. People come online to play an old game, with friends, presumably to get away from life for a little bit, not to get berated by a stranger. There are so many nice people on this server, he simply isn't one of them, and never was, never will be at this rate. If people like Emewn and others can be banned from the server for being disruptive or being rude, there's NO reason that the same rule wouldn't apply here. Him giving donations to the server shouldn't excuse his behaviour.

  5. It's been two years, why not post this again... New weapon idea: Unlocked L&K38 Combat - Psycho Combat. Made by using L&K38 and a Psycho Black Crystal (or other modifier, take your pick). Would be reskinned in a black/red style. The idea is to have it locked to two specific classes, the HUcaseal and RAcaseal. Both of these classes tend to come up short when compared to their male counterparts in damage, so this suggestion is aimed at giving them a weapon with greater range to compensate. There's been a lot of suggestion that this would be ridiculously powerful, and has been tested before, but I did some testing of my own. With zero ATP, a max-atp HUcassy, no Shifta, and 0% attribute, an unlocked L&K38 does about 175 per strong hit. This means 875 per button push, and a full combo does about 2625 damage. For comparison, a HUcast with the same modifiers using a Psycho Raven will do 536 per strong attack, making it 1608 per button push, and 4824 per full combo. This was tested on an Arlan in ultimate, and I don't know if/how buffed the mobs are here as opposed to what I used. RAcassy has access to MFs as well, which have the autoaim that gives a bit of a lazy boost to it. I think the special range on those are about 130 compared to the L&Ks 170, but a disadvantage of the L&K38 is that if the target even twitches, it'll miss the damn thing. The aiming on it is really difficult compared to several weapons, and it has a longer recovery time than mechguns too. It's very difficult for me to get a proper DPS on them due to this. One bonus of the L&K38 is that it's not a mechgun. I feel that it's the only type of weapon I seem to use nowadays, if it's not PRs, it's MFs, Last Swan, Yasminkov 9ks, TypeME/Mechs, or even the Samba Maracas/Fiesta. Everything's a mechgun, unless it's a Dark weapon. I'd love some variety that isn't intentionally hamstringing my play. I'm also suggesting this because the L&K38 combat is an awesome looking gun that is criminally underused due to being locked. Additionally, it's a badass weapon that would be great for female characters, as some of their go-to weapons are covered in hearts and/or love connotations, which is a relic of 20 years ago. I'm more than happy to help out with balance testing on the server, if needs be. TLDR; - Combine to unlock L&K - Locked to HUcassy and RAcassy - Single-target poor-aim awesome looking gun.

  8. Hey there and welcome! First, be proud that you made this post. This is the first step to better learning and getting advice about how this game works. You'll be happy to know that this community is overwhelmingly positive and helpful. So don't be afraid to ask for help/advice, even in lobby! I commend you for playing up to level 181 doing mainly v-hard runs. You've allowed yourself to immerse in many of the games basics such as mag feeding, reading your stats, using mats, and figuring out which weapons to use for your class. This will make things much easier for taking you to the next step. Before I dive in, I just want to recommend that you keep an eye on the Events threads and see what event is currently on, as it will help you hunt/obtain much rarer things that will make your game that much better. As an example: Currently we were in the Summer event, and a couple of items that drop are Centurion/Battle as well as Serene Swan, two items that will drastically boost your performance. Looking at your gear: Weapons As a RAcast, you want to get your hands on an Iron Faust ASAP. This weapon will instantly boost your effectiveness. It's probably the cheapest upgrade you can get which will give you most bang for your buck. Get a Frozen Shooter (another cheap, but instant QoL improvement). It's special instantly freezes anything that can be frozen if it lands. That's a good place to start for now. What I would recommend is to play with other players, especially other rangers and see what weapons they're using. You'll quickly learn their purposes, the situations they benefit in, and how to obtain them. Frame/Barrier Your current armor/barrier can definitely be improved. At your level, you can wear most of the good stuff. For easy to obtain, cheap QoL improvements, I would recommend getting a Guard Wave or DF Field for your Frame and either a Standstill Shield or Gratia for your barrier. For armors, if you find one with less than 4 slots, you can always increase the slots to maximum 4 using Addslots Mag/Materials/Units This one's important to fully understand what the Max Stats are for your character. Use the Max Stat Calculator. Or better yet, check out this thread to see different plans that optimally maximize each class, including RAcast. If your mag is already maxed and doesn't fit your plan, you can always raise another one, or, there are players who raise/sell mags that you can reach out to in order to get one that suits your needs Once you figure out your max stat plan, you will then have some spare unit spaces to use for other things. Some that I would recommend are: V101 instead of Heavenly/Battle - This not only gives you the speed boost, but raises other stats. Use this until you can find/afford a Centurion/Battle V502 - This increases the likelihood of status attacks to be successful such as freeze/arrest Cure/Freeze - This will especially be helpful against Falz so you dont instantly get frozen to death in his 2nd wave Here is some good information to give you more context of how this game works, and more specifically, how the Ultima flavor works. LEVELING UP: The fastest way to level up is by spamming TTF (Towards the Future) in episode 1 until you are level 100. Then, you can unlock CCA (Central Control Area) in episode 2 by pressing the 3 switches at Jungle, Mountain and Seaside area. Once you have unlocked CCA, you can rush/kill Gal Gryphon over and over again. He gives you the highest experience in game. Do that until level 200.

You should do this ASAP! /bank - will toggle between your character bank, and a common bank which can be accessed by all your 4 characters on your account. /lobby - will exit every quest and put you to the lobby. /map - will maximize the map if you need to check for something. Type again to minimize. /hh - will check if Happy Hour is active und how long it remains. Happy Hour (180 min duration) gives you a 3x times increased drop rate. 1/90 will be 1/30 while Happy Hour (hh) is active Calendar for potential Happy Hours: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jB2zrdLdXs6tRbUaoDr8WX6EIr36FgQI2kyP7fasGIQ/edit#gid=1923746843 All the other commands are here: https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/tool-box/commands/ TRADING: People on this server love to trade items. There is a whole market in the forum where you can sell/buy stuff. There are 2 currencies accepted by the players: Photon Drops (PDs) and Donation Tickets (DTs). PDs drop while playing or you can collect them in some quests. DTs you can get by donating real money to the server or selling items to other members for DTs. 1$ = 1 DT = 8 PDs There are items that go for 2 PDs and others go for 400 DTs. Yes $400 lol... You can always ask at the chat box on the start page of the forum if you want to know the price of any item. You also can ask me if you want to know more about item values. Here are some useful abbreviations for trading: S > item X you are selling item X B > item X you want to buy item X PC > item X you need a price check for item X USEFUL THREADS: C01D1s Quickstart and FAQ guide for PSOBB Ultima - A beginners guide to grinding and getting rich on Ultima - If you need to know anything special you can always ask me here or in game!

  9. Morfos were buffed during past summer events. There were people who liked it and people who did not. So we are going to do whatever the majority prefers this time. If they get buffed, we are going to unbuff them as soon as event ends. Poll closes in exactly one week. Don't use multiple accounts to vote, thanks. Summer Event will start in June or July. (No drama here or this topic gets locked and someone gets burned)

  10. @Zynetic Thanks for the time investment you took here. Interesting how you just addressed some of the issues I dislike the most. I have always hated those boosts you mentioned. Exp x5: To be able to hit level 200 in no time is for sure hurting the game longevity. I had a friend who left Ultima 4 years ago (who’s now actively on Ephinea), his reason was: “I’m bored now that I am level 200 with no stuff”. He literally farmed nothing but CCA until 200, so his gear didn’t follow his levels and then lost any interest in Ultima. Can’t blame him, but since then I often recommend anyone NOT to focus on grinding Exp in no-fun ways with the Exp boost we have, but temptation is usually too strong and then result in the same issue happening again and again. I’m mentioning CCA but when it’s not CCA, it’s TTF and same problem remains. When I address this issue, I’m told “how is that a problem, if you’re not happy you can turn exp boost off”. Sure I can and I already do it for most of my characters, but here I’m talking about other players, beginners etc. Do you feel like telling them “hey there are powerful server boosts right now, those are so OP that I advise you to nerf yourself by typing /exp 0 in lobby!” ? Of course not. I did experiment the power of combining Exp boost to CCA no-brain tryhard farming and this is the time it took me to hit 200: (13 hours, not 13 days) I used to see some pride and satisfaction to get 200 (or even high level 180+ on GC offline). No need to say there’s no such feeling now, if not sadness of not being able to earn Exp anymore. Green Name: Rare monster appearance is literally 1/2 for some monsters. This makes every single rare monster drop much less valuable (Heaven punisher, Lavis cannon, Syncesta, Psycho wand), if not totally worthless (hitless frozen shooter, heavenly units etc). This removes a good part of what used to be considered good hunts during non events. In most quests, you get lots of rare monsters in the first rooms then nothing more in the rest of the quest because of the 15-rare monsters limit being hit super early. Inciting players to remake their rooms rather than finishing the quests because of that is really bad in my opinion. This even applies without Green Name actually, while vanilla rare monsters are absurdly rare, they are absurdly unrare here, you can easily reach the 15 rare monsters even without green name in the long quests here: Caverns of Gloom or Lost Master Blaster. Finally it becomes an obstacle when you are speed running a quest and get those unwanted “rare” monsters. I remember how I had to remake like 1/3 of my runs because of random rare monster appearances when TAing that quest you made. Happy Hours: As you said. Many (I said many, not everyone) just don’t bother hunting anymore when HH isn’t on. If it were only about me, I’d at least nerf the rare boosts from x3 to x2 so it reduces the feeling of “playing for nothing when HH is off”. But I’m sure this would just lead to dramas (even if I increased all the chart drop rates or doing more HH to make up for it). On the opposite, when HH is on, many feel somehow “forced” to play, which is as bad. It is common thought here “damn HH just started, bye sleep, back to the corves for another 3 hours”. Then in the worst cases you start to break your IRL habits, sleep late, skip dinner, decline cinema invitations etc. But my main concern about HH is not even that. It is about how it just becomes a source of frustration and negativity no matter what happens. When a HH time is good for a country, it isn’t for most other countries. To that point no surprise, I experienced that myself years ago during Christmas Event when I had to stay awake until 5 am everyday because that was when all the HH happened. There clearly was a bias for NA timezones. For sure it isn’t cool if specific players are disadvantaged because of their location. Then I became GM, and started to make some HHs for EU timezones, and you guess what happened: some NA players complained about the HHs I made: “who tf think it was a good time to make hh when no one is on??” (sorry if Europe players were a minority at that time), “that r78 just makes hh for frenchies” (sure anything between 2 am and 5 pm weekdays is a good time for France), and someone (who I used to consider a friend!) even started to call me names for being “so biased”. But even now that I bother logging every single HH and do my best to perfectly spread them over all the 24 hours of a day with visual proof, I still see HH complaints... https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jB2zrdLdXs6tRbUaoDr8WX6EIr36FgQI2kyP7fasGIQ/edit#gid=1923746843 This just makes me want to get rid of HHs for good, because it is very frustrating as a GM to take your time to make things as fair and correctly as possible and still get blamed for supposedly being unfair while another random and careless GM who spams HH at same time when they like gets praised for being “generous”. I even sometimes felt bad when turning HH on because couldn’t get rid of that thought “I know some will be upset at this HH because this is a bad time for them”. Imagine using your time to do something good for your community and worry about their reactions before you even did it. Some people say HH must be done only at population peak hours. Good, this is how we lost a good part of the already small asian population years ago (I got testimonies proof for it). Anyway, none of those boosts will get removed, not only because that’s how Larva wanted his server to be, but also since that’s what many players still enjoy. Doing that now would just be a major nerf to the server and - I’m sure - would generate dramas and more quitters than newcomers. <<Like, does anyone actually hunt Hard/Very Hard rares? No, they jush rush to Ultimate and skip to the final thing to not waste their time.>> Actually there are still a few items to hunt below Ultimate: Photon crystals, trigrinders and addslots on normal, Three seals, Glide divine on very hard, Smartlink, Liberta in BPD, Crush bullet, Blood tornado for combiners, M&A60 Vise and Vjaya... Now about the seasonal events, my opinion differs. I like how the items are seasonal. You join Ultima, there are so many things to hunt, you don’t know where to start… But Triforce Event is live! So let’s farm Hylian Shield for now. Wanted a Proof of Sonic Team instead? Then nothing prevents you from farming that Hylian Shield and trade/sell it for Proof of Sonic Team someone farmed during previous Easter event. Seasons bring a bit more life to the market. This applies to Ultima because hit can be added, attributes can be swapped… On Ephinea, since you can’t do that, every single item with hit or specific attributes has already some kind of “uniqueness” so you don’t need events to get some item exclusivity. On Ultima, at the end of the day, everyone has the same gear with same stats so not too much point trading what’s all year round unless you are too lazy to hunt. I see PBCs, CBs, Hylian, Lindcray etc traded a lot. While the only non-event item traded that often is RR. You get a reason to come back later. If everything was all year round, you could end up farming real hard for a month to get everything you needed, then feel “empty” and not willing to come back later. Surprisingly I like how the non-event periods somehow tell you to take a PSO break, so it helps you decide when you don’t know what game to play. It’s not like they are that long anyway, we have 7 seasonal events spread over every year so the PSO breaks are usually just a couple weeks long. Many of us see event ends as a relief. Finally the hard farming ended, and we can either do other non PSO stuff, or do the PSO things that don’t require Events: Cal’s Clock Challenge, World of Illusion, Power Plant Plight, time attack, challenge mode, RR/PD/WD/Glide farming etc. Well this is my opinion (as a player who’s still farming a lot after 6 years here) and I know there also are many who don’t agree with me, so I’ll respect that, but we had a choice to make and we can’t please everyone. So we keep going with what Ultima was doing since the beginning and how Larva wanted the events to be. I don’t know if the trend has changed, but when I joined Ultima, I've never seen anyone express their unhappiness about that, back in Ultima prime, when we reached 201 logged players on 12/01/2016 during Christmas event. In fact it was bringing a huge hype towards main events. I honestly don’t mind seeing our player count drop during some short periods as long as it increases back the next month. It also helps the few players who play on multiple servers. Helps them decide which server to play on, depending on whether or not there is an event going on. (Yes, I can say that because I did play on Ephinea myself! I took the occasion when Ultima server was calm to do it. And ironically I kept the seasonal reasoning to decide when I do, trying to catch nothing but Exp boost weeks because starting from scratch on hardcore mode and refusing any help from higher levels, I wanted to grind exp as fast as possible on Ephinea to optimize/reduce the time spent out of Ultima) And there’s also some satisfaction to see people back and get back into old hunting once events start. I am planning to start a mini-event in a bit in order to fill a part of the gap that separates Summer from Triforce events (~2 months) but for sure I don’t expect people not to play anymore until the next time I do it (if it ever happens again), or to totally erase non-event time. I don’t want Ultima to become some kind of “new items factory”. I know many people here would love that and see it as a reason to “play again”, but it is hard to add an item worthy of use without breaking the gameplay balance or outclassing another existing item (my biggest concern). Then we get even more item requests. I remember when Psycho Raven was males only, I decided to release Mille Faucilles for female rangers because that gender bias within a same class didn’t make sense to me. It is weaker but has slightly different features (range, autolock). To that extent, nothing was left behind: Mille Marteaux is required to make Mille Faucilles, Dual Bird and Guld Milla are still usable by hunters who can’t access MF... But then the logic about how Rangers should be the ones specialized in (mech)guns poofed: I started to see a lot of requests for releasing a new strong mechgun for Hucaseal/Hunewearl so they can compete with their ranger mates, and lately I even got requests for releasing a new strong mechgun for Forces because they are supposedly left behind… and it never ends. You said people play on a server because it has people. True enough, I’m still here because even though there were many annoying people who would just always complain about everything and/or make drama, I actually love this community and would have been gone for long if it weren’t for it. But that’s why we are stuck here. Player count will not magically grow while already low without some good reasons. With your suggestions of removing boosts and reworking the DTs system, I can hardly imagine using this as an advertisement for Ultima “Hey come back to Ultima! There is no more exp x5, no more HHs, no more green names and you can’t redeem DTs for ingame items or stats anymore!”. Now regarding the main topic, Didn’t post before because I was specifically asked to shut up in the main post, point 6 :’) I understand “DMS would be super hard to get” but it’s not a good excuse to me. As far as it is obtainable, then… it is obtainable. Even if it is just one out of 100 players, I would hate to see some lucky hucast spamming DM in random rooms. What will basically happen when at least one person does that? Other players / newcomers will see that, they will want to have that as well, feel like they can’t accomplish anything without it, they start to hunt it but after hours of nothing but disappointment, they just get frustrated and ragequit the server. This is exactly what happens with PGF/STA. Some don’t realize those are very end-gear items hence intentionally HARD drops. But since those strong items exist, they MUST find them. They run they run… and end up just getting totally burned of PSO and leave. Counterargument: but those items are event only and available for less than 2 months a year. I guess but I’ve seen it happen too often after just one or two weeks of event, so even before event ended. If they were to be all year round, the rate must also be adjusted to become even harder (even though some may disagree, rates were chosen to be worthy of the events durations) so that might even get worse. New overpowered content with impossible drop rates really isn’t the way to go. I know for sure if DMS becomes a thing, we’ll get dramas “the DMS rate is stupidly hard”. However, if it was more about cosmetics than “Gameplay critical” as Matt calls it, then at least I would be slitghly less reluctant to that idea. Like simply a skin swap for DM, that would act as some prestige without totally breaking the gameplay balance because of the very few chosen “lottery winners” who get their hands on DMS or whatever OP item (you listed Frosty Icicle Shooter at 2nd cheapest option, I can tell you this item is second in most broken weapons ranking, right below DMS). tl;dr: -

  12. HALLOWEEN EVENT 2020 Deep below the depths of Ragol, Seething in the darkness, Piercing cries of anguish can be heard. An ancient curse is reawoken; Thought to be eradicated by the Hunters, The plague was actually merely contained, And now threatens to contaminate the surface once more. Its host creature has mutated, Becoming twisted and ferocious, Easily vanquishing many unsuspecting hunters. The survivors flee in a mad scramble back to the surface, Gibbering madly about the return of the Cursed Belras. Halloween Event 2020 Has Arrived To Haunt Hunters Once More! Available items Ultima Reaper Stats ATP 666 ATA 45 EVP -20 DFP 0 LCK 0 GRIND +15 Required ATP 580 (so all classes can equip it) Special Unreduced hell, perfect to slice up everything, especially in ep4 A little bit bigger range than a regular partisan Can hit up to 15 enemies in one swing Megid pierces when equipped Description "The user of this cursed scythe will surely go to hell..." "It is said this weapon was once from the grim reaper himself" "The owner of this scythe will die in 13 years (gg will use anyway)" "It is said the red color comes from all the victims it slayed" "This weapon feeds itself from its victims souls" "This scythe was used to cut Godric into pieces" CHROMATIC ORB Many rumors surround this mysterious new form of crystallized photon energy. Hunters claim to glean them from the wreckage of corrupted epsilons, pulsing with mysterious colors, though the extent of its power has yet to be discovered. It's believed they may be heavily irradiated by faulty barrier generators, handle with caution. Will you be the first to unlock all of its hidden potentials???? Banana Cannon VAMPIRE CLOAK The cursed plague has made the leap to another nearby monster this year. While more commonly known for their ability to drain the energy of its opponents to power their offensive capabilities, the mutations have infused their hide with peculiar new defensive capabilities now too, making their pelts into a valuable commodity. GIRASOLE The legendary Girasole makes a new appearance for this event, in addition to its usual spot in Christmas Event. A powerful doublesaber prized by hunters of all types for its ability to deal devastating combos with dazzling flair, this weapon that 'draws in the power of the sun' may prove useful for combating the darkness.

  18. Hey all, so a while ago someone posted about putting some SA2 chaos in the game and I lifted that idea and put together a few models of the end game ones. They're a lot blocky mostly because I have no idea what the psobb poly count is like so I went with super old and crap 🤣 I can smooth them out a little if the game can handle better (I hate the angel one so so much). I couldn't get the flame or ball of light to work for the 2 on the right. OK, issues I have and the reason for the post; this is the first time modelling anything other than buildings for me and these are from 3ds max 2022 and I have no idea how to make them able to actually get in the game or turn them into .nj files. I have no real idea how the pso modelling system even works so anyone who can shed light on that or help me would be appreciated. As well as if it's possible to animate them for the proc. These are just some 2 or 3 key frame ani ideas for what they could look like in my head but again no idea how feasible that is. (other movement suggestions welcome if I can get them to work) So if I can make them work and the powers that be even want them in the game for us all to hopefully have more trips invincibility mags to use (please make them worth using 😂) I mocked up some positions for them as they hang out behind you but welcome other ideas for that too. If it's not possible to get them into the game then that's fine but I've come as far as I can on my own so thought I'd reach out. Thanks for reading.

  19. Wilson has been a staff member of Ultima for the last 2 years now almost? Something like that. During this time he's been passive aggressive and just a bully. Why are we allowing this man to be on the Ultima staff/mod team when he harasses people all the time. He has a your right I'm wrong attitude and just straight up bully people. A lot if not all of Ultima would more then likely agree for this man to be gone. As well as his last night's incident was seriously outrageous. No staff/mod should act like that. Idc if this gets me banned for pointing it out, but dudes a fucking dick. Who has no care for respecting others. On top of what does Ultima need, Ultima doesn't need a staff member like that running around. Honestly he should be permanently removed from the server. This is my opinion. As for those who are voting they're voting for his status to be removed as a mod. If they want him gone I recommend you post your feedback below of him down here.

  20. When: Saturday 5th June (afternoon UK time, yet to set an exact time, will later) Likely 4PM GMT which should make it around noon in the US (I think?) What: I keep dropping my booty pants all over episode 1 after a stellar shart! 3 players (ideally newer players without too much gear) need to go and hunt around the areas of episode 1 on normal to find my lost booty (Frames, weapons, units, techs, enemy parts and even PDs!) Booty could be hidden anywhere! The areas will be cleared and on normal (to make my life easier and so new players can jump in) you just have to look in those deep dark places to find the missing booty as when I throw those booty pants they go far! You may even find a whale or two! There is even an extra prize for defeating big caves whale shared between those who fell this mighty beast! Timer is 20mins. It will be a free for all, so I’d suggest starting in different areas. (Unless you’re harpooning big old whale boy first) For the sake of fairness as this is aimed at newer players please TURN FLOOR READER OFF if you have it so it’s actually fun. Anything left unclaimed after 20 mins upon me saying start I will grab and do a little quiz or something for what’s left or maybe even just share it out. Get your whales in a row and pull those detective pants up high! How: Just reply before it starts below and I’ll pick out 3 players. I will be prioritising newer players with less gear first as there will be no DFs or STAs hidden under dragons ass If this is successful I may do it regular. It’s good bank clearing! Edit: If anyone has the time to jump on to help me mass clear all these areas in prep that’d be awesome or even drop some stuff they think players may find useful.

  23. Now that Christmas and anniversary event are over I want to revisit DAR and multi-logging, mainly because the last two events put these issues on full display to anyone who participated in the STA or PGF hunts. I'll start with my own personal experience in Christmas event. I killed a total of 270 HH olgas and didn't get a pgf to drop. I'm not bitter about that, I understood this was a possibility when the event started. I still had fun playing the event and the challenge of getting the hardest event drop in the game. What does bother me is knowing that I *could* have got the drop if I multi-logged like several other players did. Not only that, I would have gotten multiple PGFs. In my runs there were 5 other people that did get a PGF. There are a couple reasons I bring this up. #1. This is conceivably how many PGFs I could have ended the event with had I ran Seabed solo with multiple accounts. Now as much as I like a challenge, I like having 5 PGFs more. So the lesson any rational player would take away after their first Christmas event (especially if they didn't get the drop) is that their time is much better spent multi-logging Seabed solo than running open rooms for whatever random in the lobby wants to join. And if this is the take away for those who have participated in this event, and what players will do after their first year, then any concerns about how changing the DAR "crashing the economy of ultima" are silly. Because the players that really want a pgf can get a complete set in one event and all they need to do it level a character to ult on 4 accounts. And this is what many players did And #2. Many of the players that joined my runs either didn't have the gear for Seabed or didn't know the maps, or both. It's fair to say that these players probably would not have gotten a PGF if I was not there to guide them through seabed. So what are these players to do if I (and the rest of the veteran players who know that it's completely idiotic to try and get a PGF the normal way instead of just Soloing with 4 accounts) stop running open rooms and leave to block 2 and 3 to make the drop easier? They will be stuck running the crash-heavy RT that can take 25-30 minutes with newer players. The incentive for veteran players to avoid new players is a problem all year round, but when we are talking about items that are worth 300-450DTs, an amount that new players can't even comprehend amassing, then it becomes an issue that undermines any chance of the server growing. Not only are new players less likely to get quality drops because veteran players avoid them during HH, but they are also less likely to make any social connections with the community. This community is full of people that would be happy to help out new players, but as stated in point #1, has every incentive to avoid them. What's the threshold for caring more about getting something for yourself, rather than helping a stranger? For me it's 400 dollars. I don't know how this is even an issue to disagree about. multi-logging is a mechanic that BREAKS the game. PGFs are supposed to be the hardest drop in the game, but it's not really that hard to get several of them if you use multiple accounts. How is this any different than other methods that have been banned like boss warping? The only counterargument posted for not changing this is that adjusting the DAR would make the ROOM get the drop easier. There are zero players who view drops this way, that care if the room got the drop; they care if they got the drop. Of course it's nice to see a friend get an item they've been working towards, but another player having a dark meteor doesn't make me any better at the game. And I promise you that no one cares about other people getting the drop 5 and a half percent easier as long as they got it fair and square. What is annoying is knowing that you are grinding a PGF honestly and seeing people that you know are using multiple accounts getting the drop repeatedly. Shiida's revised drop rate being bemoaned as "making an easy game easier" feels like a joke considering you can boost your chances of getting any drop by 1.8-2.4x whenever you want. And when you compare this to the mild adjustments that Shiida proposed, it feels like these arguments aren't being made in good faith. I do hope this is resolved soon. I had fun in the past two events, but I heard repeatedly from other that "this is the last year I don't multi-log." The highlight of both anniversary and Christmas event was the first week or so when everyone was playing together and helping each other. There are people I played with at the start of anniversary and Christmas event who I didn't see after the first week of those events because they were spending the rest of the event using multiple accounts. And I can't blame them. Those players are now set for life on DTs and trade fodder and I'm the dope who spent over 300 hours in a video game in 2 months and got one STA to show for it.

  24. So, as im sure a bunch of yall already know im doing a tiny rt contest thingy. Rules are: DUO RT only Must be on ultima server Uses in game timer from quest start to the moment the "pgf"drops (or whatever oga decides to fork over) No weapons unobtainable to the public (DM for hucast, etc) MUST be duo, no solo The winning peoples will each receive a stack of pds from mr sock himself My hope with this event is to try and encourage two things: 1, good players to still choose to play the easier of the pgf hunts, to potentially help out newer players. 2, encourage the newer players to also want to go zoom I chose duo because, well lets be honest the DAR. I figure its still worth a run even if ya carry someone with a duo drop rate rather than a 4 man. so far the submissions have been posted in sockland discord here: https://discord.gg/gRh7GZhuZ2 but feel free to post your submissions here also. I will post the winning times from the discord here also :x Once again this is a smol time thing. If the reward isnt exactly appealing to whoever may be reading this, then i ask you to not go too hard with a submission. I'd kinda like the reward to go to a group of players whom would actually benefit from the pds :x Feel free to submit a submission and withdraw from the prize tho if you dont want the pds. I think that made sense? lol Just dont want the pds to go to waste. Hopefully this can be a nice way to have some speedrun fun while STILL hunting the event item :x Good luck yall @jdhenry124 i deeed it

  31. (This is Matt from Ephinea, by the way) I totally understand where you're coming from with this, but Ultima's current low population count comes from a few factors. New items and hunts can pad the game out and increase the longevity of the game to a degree, but it won't fix all the problems with the game at all, plus your proposal also causes some other issues which may even hurt the population or turn people away in the long run. During Ephinea's early days, we also had issues with low player count outside of events; in fact, we used to also hit single digit numbers on some days too, and playing outside of events was just something you didn't do. Low population begets low population, it's a bit of a catch-22 unfortunately, and getting out of that rut is hard. Many players will leave a server for another that may not quite be their cup of tea because "it has people". To fix this, we didn't do unique things between events, or added new items or anything like that, we did what you may think is unthinkable: We nerfed events hard so they stopped being powerful, and there is no exclusive or major advantage to playing them, it's just a fun time with some extra boosts. Naturally, this had some negative reactions at first, but as you can probably see, it has paid off. See, when events or boost periods (such as Happy Hours) are powerful, they are detrimental to a game's long life and population, because what they do is make the regular game not feel like it is worth playing. Why would somebody get online to hunt a Frozen Shooter now, when they can wait for Happy Hours or a Rare Enemy boost and get it in a fraction of the time? In context for Ultima, there are two issues related to this: Happy Hours / Weekend Boosts Exclusive Event Items In regards to Happy Hours, they essentially make the game not worth playing for hunts, because why get online when you can just do something else and hop on for Happy Hours, and get your item 3x faster? Because of this particular feature, it lowers the population during normal times, and as mentioned before, a lowered population creates an even lower population, because what's the fun of a multiplayer game if it's a ghost town? If normal times are unpopulated, many people will also just forget about the game too, so Happy Hours will not actually bring everyone back (like, you can see this in action in the most recent Phantasy Star title, New Genesis, they make it so you can't make progress except at certain times, and lots of people are just logging off and forgetting about it). Secondly, Ultima has a lot of extra items that are stronger than the standard official set of items, and these items are what I will call "gameplay critical". A "gameplay critical" item is one that is considered a staple, or adds some sort of extra tool or power to your arsenal. Because of this, players also feel that it is not worth playing except during events. Why bother hunting something like a 50H Baranz Launcher when it will just be replaced by Dark Meteor? You might as well just not play and wait for Christmas instead, and this also applies to so many of the custom items here, as they are just straight up better than all the items you can get during normal times. Nobody wants to invest time into something that they know will just be outclassed by something they can get later. Like, does anyone actually hunt Hard/Very Hard rares? No, they jush rush to Ultimate and skip to the final thing to not waste their time. In Ephinea, the only items that are exclusive to events are those that are cosmetic in nature. There are no "gameplay critical" items obtainable through events (except maybe Drill Launcher, I forgot about that, maybe I should do something about that). Things like Mag Cells and joke weapons are the only things that you can get exclusively, although they're not the only items of course. So, what's my point? While there is a sort of "issue" with DTs and whatnot allowing you to get perfect items, depending on how you look at it anyway, I think the biggest issue is actually that Ultima is not a very good server for pick up and play, with many boosts and items being timegated. This just keeps people away in regular times and if you're not actively playing, you are very likely to just not play again, because the game doesn't actually respect your own schedule, it expects you to play when the game says so if you want to maximise your time. In regards to your proposal, it actually fixes nothing, and actually causes more issues than it resolves. As mentioned prior, people just want to hunt for the things that are the best, so what will happen here is that everyone will just focus all their time and effort on hunting the "Ultima Photon" and its related items. Other items will just fall by the wayside, and the only content that will be ran are the ones that give you the best rate of Ultima Photon. What your proposal does is not actually increase the longevity of the game, it just changes what you are doing instead. It will only add something new for those who have played already, and those who are new will just have the same experience as before in terms of play time, because now they just skip over many other things that are staples today, and beeline for these items instead. Secondly, it is yet another timegated piece of content. This is something that is only obtainable through non-events. Since these items are so much stronger than the others, what this actually means is that events are now practically worthless, and what you'll have is good population throughout non-events, and lowered population during events (so actually the Ultima Photon is kind of the event now?). All you're doing is flipping the script (although of course there's more non-event time than event time, but still). Also while it's a scavenger hunt at first, most people do not participate in that, and just wait for everything to be found. (sauce: We run an event like this on Ephinea and it's extremely common lol) Lastly, new things are not actually new content in a sense, not with how people actually play and approach games. For a piece of content to actually be an addition, you must be careful that the new content does not replace other content in some way. This is very hard to do. To be quite blunt: If Dark Meteor Storm exists, what incentive do people have to hunt the regular Dark Meteor? All you're doing here is shifting the content that is considered "worthwhile" or "playable", while not actually adding anything interesting. I'm very careful about this on Ephinea, we add custom quests all the time, but before any of them get through, I vet them to make sure that they do not replace current quests. If a quest with 20 Girtablulus was to be added, nobody would have any incentive to play the other quests with them, such as NMU5 or WoL4 or MA4C, so what is actually happening here is that content is *replaced*, not *added* so to speak. For example I completely nuked Path to Salvation, because it was the only Ruins quest that people were playing, since obviously it's like the best for every hunt, so the game became a lot more boring after a while. If you want to add new content in the way you're proposing, it must be done constantly, which means that everything is kind of subject to planned obsolescence, because what people want is power. This is a successful model, but it requires a lot of work and also the right audience as well, and I would kind of garner that anyone playing PSO kind of does it mostly casually and wouldn't appreciate their gear being outclassed when they take a break, but I may be wrong here. So, if I had to give any advice for Ultima's player population, I would suggest the following: All "gameplay critical" items must be obtainable at all times. By putting these things behind events, it only discourages people from playing at regular times. This covers absolutely everything from tools to weapons to frames to any powerful mags or anything you can think of that changes gameplay. You can make the items obtainable in whatever way you like (quests, combinations, drops, whatever). Happy Hours and Green Name boosts are bad for the game and really should be done away with (people have asked me for this on Ephinea and I have shut it down every single time over the past 6 years without question). Obviously this will get some bad reaction at first, maybe you'd want to consider buffing all rates across the board permanently, but once you do this you cannot go back to regular rates. If people are only getting on for 3x rates, why bother having Happy Hours at all? Just buff everything or cut its throat because it's clearly not helping. A lot of people are really turned away by the concept of Donation Tickets on a game like PSO. That should probably be reworked in my opinion as it comes across pretty Pay2Win when there are unique things you can do with them. While you can trade with them, it just kinda means whoever has money can inject currency into the game (and their wallet). I've noticed on Ultima that you try to keep people around with lots of events or mini-events, but from watching my own players over the years, I don't think this is a good strategy if what you want is people playing at all hours and days. All lots of events/mini-events do is make people stop playing unless something is going on, and I expect that you don't really want to be doing things all the time. Plus, too many events can lead to event burnout as well from people feeling like they must play because something is happening. tl;dr: Exclusive Event Items, Happy Hours, Green Name Boosts and other related timegated content/boosts make Ultima a bad server for pick up and play, which just makes people stay away as they forget about the game or end up playing somewhere else that respects their time. While other servers may have 1x EXP rates, their time is respected as the progress they make will never be devalued by broken events or time periods.

  44. 12th Anniversary Event In order to celebrate the 12th Anniversary of the Realms of Ultima, a powerful Wizard called Soly Potter used his powers on the poor forgotten Fausts weapons that no one loved to make them Great Again. Like every year, the blessing of Sonic Team has spread over the meteor impact to reach Shambertin. Will you be the brave hero who slains the giant villain and finds the Legendary Armor? Ultima's Anniversary event has started! Frozen Faust and Arrest Faust updates Both weapons can now hit multiple targets (8 max) just like Iron Faust does. In addition: the weapons are more effective at projectile impact point: they hit the main target twice, which means more damage and more chances to Freeze or Paralyze your main target! Combine Frozen Booster with Panzer Faust +9 to make Frozen Faust Combine Arrest Booster with Panzer Faust +9 to make Arrest Faust Note that Hucast cannot equip those weapons. There is a hidden 202 ATA requirement.
