@Lokai reported these issues over on TrueUO while testing out boats on EA.

Observed the following on EA's TC Server:

1. You cannot deploy more than 1 boat! (Not sure if this is TC only, or a recent change)
2. The area around Sea Market is NOT guarded.
3. You do not get any notification about a 30 minute limit when you enter the area.
4. You are able to recall out from next to Sea Market and recall back to your boat.

Need to be tested still:

5. Do Large boats act the same way as small boats. All testing was done using small boats from the Provisioner.
5. (A) Can you deploy both a small boat AND a galleon, or are you still limited to one?
5. (B) Do you get a warning if you park your boat near Sea Market?

6. Boatsman have interesting things to say:

7. Fishing (even with 120 Fishing) still produces boots and shoes on EA. On ServUO/Heritage I never fish up footwear any more. This made it somewhat anti-climactic when I received a "junk-proof hook" as a reward.

8. On EA, at 120 Fishing, I still get no-name 1 weight Fish.
9. On EA, Finding a Sea Serpent is MUCH more rare than on ServUO.

In response I posted this:

Alright so what we need to know now:

1. You cannot deploy more than 1 boat!
  • This should have been like that since High Seas came out. I did not know on ServUO you could have more than 1 boat.
  • The one exception is the rowboat.
  • Is this ACCOUNT based or character based?
2. The area around Sea Market is NOT guarded.
  • Good to know!
3. You do not get any notification about a 30 minute limit when you enter the area.
  • So I know on UO there is a time limit and your boat gets moved.
  • Did you receive any warning while within the area?
  • Did you wait 30 minutes just to see what would happen? Could even log and see if the boat moves next time you log in.
  • MAYBE just MAYBE (and this would be kinda cool) the Sea Market can tell how many boats are around it and only after x amount of boats it kicks them out?
4. You are able to recall out from next to Sea Market and recall back to your boat.

1. yea, you can have classic boats (any number) and 1 galleon. That was on my shard, as it had High Seas long before I uploaded it to ServUO. I'll have that fix in.
2. What do you mean the area around the sea market? How far out from the sea market, specifically?
3. Looks to me this needs more verification.

They have made it so that you are only able to have 1 ship out of any kind that has a hold.

So, only 1 Galleon or large ship or small ship. Any attempt to deploy a 2nd ship gives you the message "You already have a ship deployed."

You may deploy a rowboat while having a ship out, since the rowboat does not have a hold. You are also able to deploy a 2nd rowboat, but as soon as you place it, the first one is Auto-docked, and the deed placed in your pack.

If you leave a ship out in the sea market area, you are able to recall back to it, but after some time (I think the 30 minutes) they will have moved it to a "parking" area to the south designated by buoys.

Okay so it looks like all that needs to get added now is

Rowboats can only have 1 at a time. If you place another one the 1st one gets auto docked. I tested and if there is a person or item, that has not decayed, on the rowboat it will not let you place the 2nd one until the deck is cleared. I also found this tidbit on security for row boats

"Rowboats copy their security settings from the ship owned by the placer of the rowboat, but only when the rowboat is placed on the same subserver as that ship. Otherwise, they get default security settings."

So now I think all that is left here is:

6. Tillerman saying random things to you

7. Fishing (even with 120 Fishing) still produces boots and shoes on EA. On ServUO/Heritage I never fish up footwear any more. This made it somewhat anti-climactic when I received a "junk-proof hook" as a reward.

8. On EA, at 120 Fishing, I still get no-name 1 weight Fish.

Basically fishing, even at 120, still pulls up junk too :)

This sounds correct.

As much as I like not getting any junk (at 110 fishing skill) I must admit that on EA I continued to get junk randomly at 120 skill. I would say the rate for a pack full of fish was about 3-5 footwear, 1-3 no-name 1-weight Fish.

OK, so named fish are 10 stones each. I have usually around 400 stones available space, so 40 fish. Roughly then I would say it would be somewhere around 20% of the time. Might be less. It was a small sample size - I have done about 5 full loads and 5-10 partial loads of fish. I would say about 20% of the time you would get one of:

  • Fish (weight 1 stone - no fancy name)
  • sandals
  • shoes
  • boots
  • Thigh boots
I have also not done extensive testing from shore/docks or in dungeons. I was only doing Sea Fishing.

Currently it is set to 30 minutes. Should also start ticking down after 5 minutes.

https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-w...ransactions/the-floating-emporium-sea-market/
Whatever your business at this bustling market, do not tarry too long, docking of ships is limited to 20 minutes, after which time your ship will be removed to the marker buoys a short distance from the structure.

Notice of removal is given 5 minutes before the event and at one minute intervals thereafter.

Correct, however maybe leave the original warning too? Kind of a nice thing to know.

So, #7, is going off stock RUnUO. We'l have to adjust for fishing going above 100.

Ok, should be fixed, however I didn't test the results. Let me know if the normal fish are spawning, and if junk is being fished up at 120.

Everything is looking good. I still have not seen the boatsmen telling their funny stories, but spawns are pretty accurate now. One thing I notice on EA is that every once in a while I will get a Serpent with a bottle of liquor instead of a message.

Do the galleon pilots say random stuff too?
Sorry I did not get around to deploying a Galleon, since I already had a boat out, and it would not let me deploy another.

One more thing, about the Serpent comment above, you only get the message "Woah, that's not a fish" sometimes, which is when you will find there is no map and no MiB.
