    Switching gears, what are your ideas for boats in EP2.

    Being that there are going to be zones how will that work?

    Just thinking aloud here.

    I haven't heard or read them mentioning them yet. They mentioned 4 stretch goals (iirc) and boats were not among them. Doesn't necessarily mean they won't be one.

    From the stretch goal store page

    They were on for episode 2 until the devs decided they had to stretch goal everything. Not the way I would have had it happen. I would have had episode 2 kickstarted again with pledges full of our stretch goals. It could have been pledges included a special mount, a special boat, pack horse ect. there could have been so many cool things that would have gotten funded doing this but nooooooooooooo we are going to stretch goal yucky things like barebone things. What is up with this. We could have it all if we would only package the game correctly. Stop with this stretch goal thing and give us awesome features that are just included in the game because it is packaged in an enticing way. Some ideas for this are:

    Flying Mounts
    Battle mounts
    Racing Mounts
    Row boats and different boats per pledge tier like pirate tier, etc.



    and for those who can't or won't do pledges for heaven sakes we can have prizes of special mounts not pledge ones of course and boats and all and loyalty rewards of cool stretch goal things. why must we suffer through another poorly thought out stretch goal thingy. Ok that's my rant and just a few ideas of some cool things our pledges could have. I did this in a rush since I'm in game and hanging out with others. How rude am I lol

    Given that episode 2 has several big islands would boats be a good way to move around.

    Well they said they would stretch goal them and see which one of them won. How silly is that? and especially after they said we could have them all in good time. Now we need the funding and truly I would love to see us handle this a lot better. I hope I am around to voice this longer lol ;) j/k I hope.

    @majoria70 I don't think a second Kickstarter would succeed at this point. Not judging from the comments on the first Kickstarter. But I agree the current stretch goal method might not be the best alternative.

    Well we have a whole new market of players who don't know of this game. If we could advertise awesome packages it would be like when we began. They can have their land, pots, and so much more in those pledges with very cool names.

    I don't think that SOTA will ever have Flying Mounts. If you fly above a certain point, you'll see all the world builder backdrop stuff (incomplete scenery in the distance, etc).

    Lol well you might not have been at one event where the devs turned on jumping like you couldn't even imagine yth heights we soared. It was so much fun. Also it has been said our airships will fly one day. I would not be so very sure about what all this game can do. If we can get necessary funding they will do so much more for us. Now that is why I rally for so much even fundraising since I started many years ago. I do want so much more and it will take funding and very enticing bundles and things for sale to get those funds. Not these measly stretch goal offerings.

    I know I can't either but it is not for us as much as the players who don't know of the game yet. I will support it on a smaller scale now. I have subbed and buy a thing here and there. Imagine if they do payments again. Then they get their chance for cool things too. That's no reason to not offer up coolness right? ;)

    If I remember correctly in the beginning boats, horses, elves, flexible placement... the original stretch goals were not designed to go into the game. At the start.

    The devs created the stretch goals AND stated that if the goal was met that they would put them at the head of the line and get it developed.

    Sadly the stretch goals fell short drastically.

    What I'm now trying to recall is, when those things were suppose to go in.

    I am anxious also but I'm still trying to be patient but I wanna see boats and expanded fishing too.

    I do recall someone asking about treasure maps in a telethon and DarkStarr said maybe EP2.


    This is a work in progress people.

    My earliest memories of boats in Ultima is from Ultima 4 where winds played a big role in how fast your boat could go and with a useful wind change spell.

    Picture the water on the world map as a grid/chess board (below what we can see) In every point you have.
    • Wind (strength and direction) (could variate by seasons)
    • Currents (strength and direction)
    • Depth.
    so small boats like a row boat would not worry to much about depth or wind and most on currents
    While bigger ships would have to avoid places where it is to ground.
