My rating is slanted for obvious reasons, but I want to point out that a group of people took a well established game and made it their own. They added things they feel are fun and they try to add content to a pre-existing game map that left little room for new builds when I got done with it. They replaced my Underworld with their own...which to digress...I was going for an Ultima Pagan theme down there and that is why you have all of the giant mushrooms in Odyssey. The contrast between the original game and Adventures is the same as the generational gap of players and that moment in time they discovered MMORPGs. One extreme is MUD players and the other is a giant buffet of elements modern gamers expect. Keep that in mind if you explore these games and really reflect on what you consider your taste in gaming to be like. Many people don't like Odyssey because it was too plain and too much like an old school game. It is because of this Adventures initiative that those players have this other choice.
i give this server 3 stars...its has reverted alot of what odyssey was and made alot of changes that make absolutely no sense-ie int for control slots (god forbid ur a fighter tamer or archer tamer) diminishing return of stats u worked hard for to stacks just to lose 70% of it.....there are some kool features and thats only reason they got 3 stars....even though it takes away from the original odyssey imo....ppl living in lava-------towns right next to towns...roads just funky n straight lines with tight angels. pvp is ruled out ( : ) ). the crafters can be lazy n get powerful equipment via custom resources and gm guild hammers...ontop they wiped crafters arse n gave them deeds as bod rewards...which players cannot find via loot drops. there have been new additions to creatures n boss's without even making the ones existing even challenging......u will get random npc red encounters respawn ontop of u in noobie areas...and the red is gm skilled so as noob u dont rlly stand a chance...yet ur in a mine or noobie dungeon in town lol. and it waxs ur pack mule which cant be tamed only bought and isnt cheap right off.IMO this server needs ALOT of rebalance b4 it adds nething else...it might have been a good server at once...but with too many addons n not enough focus on improving whats alrdy there it has grown unbalanced. if u r a blue player and like strictly rpg element n dont care about min/maxing ur char then the server is good for you...but if u want 100% of ur gear stats and want to PK/PVE at ur optimal performance without being penalized for being active more then others or being a better players then others(diniminished returns of 70% loss is a joke.then the server isnt for you.... they say u get 60hp out of 100...but i even gm coded 200 hp item n only got 61 hp...its totally BS how they hold u back....the more u stack the more ur penalized for playing...if that aint wacked idk...but thats my opinion play it urself n try it!
As much as i applaud Ultima Odyssey and what it aimed for, Ultima Adventure actually hit the mark. Its the perfect feel for the UO classic nostalgic players. Tons of stuff to do, a world that feels very alive and polished. Finaltwist and admins run an awesome server, come join us.
Downloaded this not knowing what i was into ((Other than the epic features i read)) This seems perfect for me and my friends we just co-op and have fun this is awesome i'm running a server and loving it a lot already well done guys I know about ultima odyssey but this has much more features and user-friendly
Easily the best UO experience I've had. Completely unique and diverse. The constantly updates and extra features that are added all the time keep it fresh. If you haven't given Adventures a go I recommend you do. Make sure you join the discord :)
Lots and lots to do, lots and lots to discover. Different enough to not be "more of the same", but similar enough to not feel everything is alien. Not just another UO, but still UO. Development is constant, multiple bugfixes and features added daily, largely based on user input. good stuff.
This is the best version of UO that there is. The absurd amount of features that just work out of the box is impressive and the monthly updates are making sure that there's nothing quite like it out there.
anyone giving this a 1 star review based off the fact that it is derived off another shard with all the same stuff just switched around to be more fun and convenient is just being rude and kinda an ass. you are also hurting the original shard this one is forked off of also by giving it a 1 star review. this fork is fun and rather enjoyable the players online are nice and online quite often. oh and there is no limit on how many skills you can gm, so dont know why your lying bout that? anyone reading this should give it a try and not go off of reviews anyways. it is a fork but there has been alot of extra work put into it, the main huge change is the fact that there are roads to follow and makes the world looking more pleasing to the eye and more fun to go out and adventure the lands.
dont judge a book by its cover, and dont be an ass and assume stuff is automatically going to be bad.
I played Odyssey for quite awhile and decided to try this. I made a barbarian character and ended up deleting them because their skills weren't unlimited as was stated. My maps don't match up to what is around me at times and the roads are all odd 90 degree angles in Sosaria. Too many crashes to mention. The style of changes are off putting with the rest of the environment. There is a town very close to Britain and there are people living on a volcano. I also think of the Spoony review of Ultima 9 where he complained about knights living near lava and stating they would be dead in seconds from breathing in the fumes.
