From Orbsydia:
I've add a new battle system to our site, this system is still currently in development and testing, but should ad some new fun to the site. This system is very advanced compared to our old system, which is probally why it took 24 hours to install. As well as many other updates to our site. See Points System Annoucement as well.

More to follow. We've also added a AI to the site that members and staff will be able to teach and train in the near future and help with questions when our staff is not around ;)

UO Landscaper Updates

Uo Landscaper Transition Editor and Wizard update
Both Tools including UO Landscaper created by DKnight

UPDATE: Now that the site update is done, well the base update anyway. I'm getting ready to release the Above two new tools for internal Testers.

First is the Transition Editor, Second is Transition Wizard, I think blackette and stormcrow will die when they see that Dknight has put a lot of love into both tools to make transition development for UO Landscaper Much faster. But still time consuming. Those that volunteered last night I'll be updating your accounts to internal testers as well.

I'll be posting some new shots of both tools for public members, while internal testers get down to business. Currently we have 28 new internal testers.

the password for the internal testing forum is the same for our uoar 2.4 release, for those that know it. I'll pm internal testers shortly with an update link for downloads in a few moments.

(files posted in internal developer forum for devs that have volunteered to help) New Screenshots posted.

Please note in screenshots: this tool makes it possible to do the base transitions base xml files for use with the UO Transition Editor, using group A tile with B tile and hitting make button as seen in shots will generate all base hash keys, of witch we need volunteers to link up matching ground tiles.

I'm sure blackette and others will find this new system much easier than the by hand way they did it before

Comments or questions welcome!

UO Landscaper is one of the most powerful world creation tools for Custom UO Maps in development, and it's getting very close to release.

Tomorrow we will be releasing to internal testers the UO Landscaper - Transition Editor, and we will be looking for members both in our community and internal team to help build proper tranission talbes for UO Landscaper which is getting closer to release.

Please keep in mind that UO Landscaper is not a clone of Dragon, and the only way to make transition tables that will work with UOL is with this tool which we will be releasing tomorrow for beta developers here.

keep in mind that trying to convert dragon transitions to this tool will not work we need people that are serious about using this tool to help.

If anyone is seriously interested in helping with this project please PM myself or DKnight. You will need a lot of pacients and time on yours hands to help, also we will setup groups in our internal UOL forum for what land types people want to tackle. UOL has over 40+ types of tiles for buidling worlds/dungeons/towns/land formations etc.

Comments welcome, please note: This is just the transition editor, UO Landscaper is coming together as well. Depending on how much help we get here will determine how soon UOL will be out.

UO Architect Pro - Rendering Engine
Monday, May 3, 2004, at 07:19 AM
Filed Under ORBSYDIA.   -Guid-
From Orbsydia:
Its been a while since we posted any new screenshots of the Rengering engine that will be in UO Architect Pro, so below are some frame rates and screenshots.

One of the major goals we've set for UO Architect Pro, is to make it a Standalone, Emu independant Map Rendering And Architectual Development Tool.

Aka some of the highlights, playing buildings on a map, extracting buildings from map, editing buildings extract to database, then placeing back on the map and faster town development, with out the need for a client/server setup which is currently in UOAR 2.2+

Xandor has a lot of improvements coming in UO Architect Pro that will blow these early rendering engine shots out of the water. Including a Totally New Building Editor!!!! And much more.

UO Architect Pro - Update & New Shots!
Monday, Apr 5, 2004, at 07:06 AM
Filed Under ORBSYDIA.   -Guid-
From OrbSydia:
Introduction and direction:

First of UO Architect Pro is moving in a slightly directly direction, with the release of World Forge.

Rather then focus on Map Editing, UO Landscaper will be focusing on full statics and world map creation, and world forge on detailed statics and map editing.

UO Architect Pro / Uoar will be doing what it does now with it's client and server tool on runuo, but as standalone tool.

With out the need for an emu or uo client running to edit, extract and place buildings on custom uo maps.

Features in Development:
  • Merging UO Architect 2.2+ With UO Architect Pro Rendering Engine
  • Completely new building editor, with xml tile support
  • The abblity to extract buildings from custom or standard maps
  • The abblity to place buildings back on map and move them
  • Ability to export the multis placed in the map rendering view to xml so they can be imported into either WF or any emu that can import items.
  • The abblity to edit buildings that have been extract in new editor
  • New GUI or User Interface for editor and tool
  • Real time viewing of world map, including zoom, scrolling, altitude changes, grid etc.
  • Multi Import/Export of buildings for editing.
  • Multi Scripting and Plugin System for Other game servers.
  • Full support for viewing custom maps and normal maps.
Both the Editor, and other Core Systems will be having almost a full rewrite when we merge the two tools together for the final application.

This only scatches the surface, the goal of the project is to make the ultimate enviroment for UO Architectual Development, aka building buildings, placing buildings, moving buildings, and editing and or decorating buildings. Etc.

Ultima C++ SDK Released By Punt
Tuesday, Mar 23, 2004, at 07:04 AM
Filed Under ORBSYDIA.   -Guid-
From Orbsydia:
This is a C++ library to ease the access of the UO mul files. It is primarly focused on Linux, and is setup to use QT. However, it does support windows, without QT (although not optimized), by setting the NO_QT define.

It is distributed under the MIT license, so can be used freely. QT is not MIT however, so be careful on your license use if you use the QT option.~ punt

Punt has put together a Ultima C++ SKD for developers this isn't a tool release however for those interested in using or making linux based tools for UO this will help.

Gump Studio v1.3 Released
Monday, Mar 8, 2004, at 06:57 AM
Filed Under ORBSYDIA.   -Guid-
Gump Studio v1.3 has been released. From OrBSydia:
  • Temporarily disabled Scrolling in the canvas. It is related to a fairly serious bug that I'm not sure how to correct yet.
  • A few other things that I've forgotten about.
  • I have included a 70% completed project for an "Import from RunUO Script" plug-in. If anyone wants to finish it up, you are welcome to use my code for it, and put your own name on it. As it is now the new plug-in works fairly well, but needs some tweaking.
  • A few methods have been added / changed in the designer code to accommodate the new plug-in, this should not break any other plug-ins. As always, if you are working on a plug-in that needs access to something not provided / public in the designer, let me know and I will see what I can do to add what you need.

oFound on the RUNUO boards:
For those interested orbsydia core development projects our core team is working on 4 hardcore Level design tools for uo.

UO Architect Tool (in private beta testing however if you contact us on orb we can setup demo and or those that want to help via invite after talking with us can try the private beta if they want to help get bugs out so we can speed up release to the masses.


Chat Forum:

UO Landscaper, sorta like Dragon, but is a 32 bit map editor / creator. This is in alpha testing at the moment. We can support up to 25+ Terrian types so far in the tool, and have a great parsing system.


UO Regional Area Spawner - in alpha testing now, very cool Tool.

And other tool that we haven't released info on yet but will make your life eaiser .. we place to release the UO architect in the coming week if private best tests do well.
