Existing game-created moongates (the moongates encircled by large rocks, near towns) will be altered to allow for more selective destinations, including that of facets. Players who are murderers will not be able to go to Trammel facet using this selection feature. The choices of selections will also include Ilshenar for those players who have the Third Dawn Client.
A menu will be presented when entering the gate.
Each page within the menu will represent a facet within UO. For example, page one of the menu will represent Trammel. An option will be available to switch pages easily.
Town areas to choose will appear on each page as possible destinations on that facet.
Note that the town closest to the gate will be it’s representing town, as the gates themselves are not actually within the town limits in many cases.
Moonstone functionality will not change. No new kinds of moonstones will be added.
The current travel restrictions that exist between T2A (Second Age lands) and Britannia (Old Lands) will be lifted in the following manner:
Players will be able to recall and gate between the Lost Lands (T2A) and Britannia.
Passageways and connection points between the Lost Lands and Britannia will be open to tamed creature travel.
Players will be able to use stablemasters in both areas with T2A or Britannian creatures. Players will be able to remove Lost Lands creatures from the stables while being within the Britannian lands, and vice versa.
Players will be able to ride a mounted ostard or rideable llama across Lost Land/Britannian access points.
Allow for rideable llamas to be mounted in the Old Lands (Britannia).
Moonstones are the only items that will allow travel between the Trammel and the Felucca lands. Moonstones will be found on various monsters in both lands and work in the following manner:
Moonstones will be labeled with the land (Trammel or Felucca) to which they will transport the player.
To use a moonstone, left double-click it while it is in your backpack.
Moonstones cannot be used in guard protected areas.
Your character will bend down as he places the stone in the ground. The moonstone will be removed from your pack at this time and will appear on the ground.
After approximately 30 seconds, the moonstone will sink into the ground and a gate will open. The gate will be a different color depending on the phase of the moon. This gate will lead to the corresponding location in the other lands as long as that location is not blocked.
During the time the moonstone is on the ground, and before the gate opens, the moonstones cannot be picked up by anyone other than the character who placed the stone.
If the corresponding location in the other lands is invalid, the moonstone will return to the character’s backpack.
Once the gate is opened, only the placer of the moonstone and anyone in his party can enter through the gate.
Gates created with a moonstone will remain approximately the same amount of time as gates cast with the gate spell.
When examined (single-clicked), Moonstones will shift colors depending on the phase of Britannia’s moons.
