    Even better. Giant Seahorses with nasty ranged poison attacks.

    And if you attack them it hurts your karma.

    Now THAT is ultima.

    While I'm not entirely sure whale riding is practical, I now want it. So you win this thread.

    The Flipper noise played in my head when I saw this.

    Your comment triggered The Flipper noise and I snortled, thrice.

    Why? Because they call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
    No-one you see, is smarter than he,
    And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
    Flying there-under, under the sea?

    If the water has been updated in all scenes. I have not heard one mention of it in the stand up notes @Chaox does. Water needed to be updated in all scenes before the fishing update could happen per Darkstarr and it is scheduled for R58 not that far off. It would be great if pre-planning could happen for the future of our boating system was adressed as possible at the same time. Why must so much not be planned for, well it is said due to a small team but sometimes due to so many directions the game went in the team is spread too thin. And as always what do I know. I just want great systems in the game not always short cuts. *Stomps feet*.

    I love the game and I want it not to be low budget. I never wanted that in all the time I've been here.

    So It is what it is but it still deserves the best attention to detail and not skimping. That counts for boating coming in as well, and mounts let them all be full featured cool systems. If we know that will happen without a doubt I feel more people will be willing to fund them. I believe this. Perhaps We are gun shy from bare bones systems.

    Boating is one of the main features I am really hanging out for. I really hope they do include this for Episode 2 and not make us wait till Ep 3 or beyond!

    I used to love sailing around in UO.

    Here is a link to an old Ultima Online ship guide! If you're feeling nostalgic of course!

    I know this is not part of Ep2, but can we have the following in a future Episode?

    - Farming expansion (seafood)
    • shrimp farming
    • salmon farming
    • oysters & mussels

    - Fishing expansion (deep sea harvesting)
    • king crab
    • lobsters
    • tuna (line fishing)

    :D

    Edit: typo & formatting

    This is the perfect time to discuss it before the plans are set, and development begins...

    I like a lot of the ideas being talked about here...

    They should make recipes for all of Bubba's shrimping dishes. Lol. Referencing Forest Gump movie. Shrimp cocktail.... Shrimp gumbo etc. Bonus points if you look them all up.

    Nah no interest, fighting on my feet is just fine in this game so far.

    Now if land mass was 10x bigger and mounts moved faster than fleet flute id be sold.

    Fact is map is too small and the zones arnt big with fleet n dash it takes me 15 seconds to move across the map.

    With the teleport system and a massive friends list I hard walk as it is.

    and what about battle mounts, race horses (we already have a track in the game in one scene), and jumping hurtles. Who says they have to only be for distance travel?

    No not really, but if its something that you guys really want Ill cheer for you while I silently cry they spent that much time on that system. It took three months just to get the wyvern in what your describing is like 1000x more effort.

    Imop game movement is fine spend time on new stuff we dont already have.

    Boats docking in water lots would be simple if you consider the only reason you would even need your boat in a lot is to decorate it, and you only launch/return to a lot to begin with is because you own a lot, so that is THE lot you would have your boat on. No need to park in other lots.

    Think of it in terms of the magic mover. You magic mvoer your boat onto the ocean to sail it, place it back into your magic mvoer to dock, and if you have a lot, place it ony our lot just to keep it displayed

    yes I know but thats just things not a whole system. They are two different things. I love that we are getting Wyverns too. I always had very high expectations for this game not knowing the budget in the end would be so restrictive to it.
