Thanks to all who have provided feedback and suggestions on UOCraft’s redesign. I’m taking notes and have some big ideas that I hope to implement this summer.

My next (small) project is to build a collection of links – a repository of UO crafting, merchant, gardening, and taming resources, if you will. If you have any suggestions for UO web sites that you just could not live without, share the love! Email links to uocraft@gmail.com. I’ll compile them along with my own bookmark collection, and share them via UOCraft.

Also – if you have community or UO web site news or events you’d like to share, send them to the email address above. I will eventually implement a form interface where you can submit news and events directly through the site here, but time’s up for this weekend!

Thanks to suggestions from Jimmy Pop over at the Stratics Tamer forum, I’ve tweaked the pet power calculation. I think you will find that the new values much more accurately represent the true weighting of resists vs hit points vs stats (and optionally, vs skills). As a reminder, resists make up 65% of a pet’s score, followed by hit points at 25%, and stats and skills at 5% each.

Greater Dragons have also been included in this update. If you come across anything funky or would like to share comments or feedback or updated GDragon numbers, let me know! Thanks!

The Alchemy cost calculator has been updated to include the newer potions (Invisibility, Conflagration, Confusion Blast) and the premium recipe-based potions (Darkglow Poison, Hovering Wisp, and Parasitic Poison). Note that Invisibility potions are currently calculated at the “high” reg price.

If you’re reading this, you’ve made it to the “new” UOCraft.com!

The entire site has been redesigned and moved to a new server. Please pardon the dust as we get settled in to our new location. I’ve tested all of the tools on this site, and they should be working as intended, but if you come across anything strange, please let me know – uocraft *at* gmail * dot * com. Thanks!

The site is still working off of 2 different domain names (the “real” domain name – uocraft.com, and the domain I was using as I was testing the new site), so I expect some intermittent downtime over the next few days as I get everything transferred over.

Thanks for your patience!

Minor tweak to the dragon numbers – I’ve updated max dex and max magic resist, and added anatomy and meditation to the skill list. Thanks to zodiac19 on the Stratics tamer board for those tidbits.

If you’re following the Stratics thread at all, Jimmy Pop alluded to some math tweaks. The formula I’m using does require some tweaking. I set out to revamp it back in September, and just didn’t have time to get it right. The public outcry against the “new math” was… loud… so I reverted back to the “old math” (which is what the calculator currently uses). I do have plans to jump back into the calculator and work on a re-vamp, but that won’t happen until I’m off work for summer break (starting at the end of May, at the earliest).

So – stay tuned, but in the meantime, the greater dragons will be evaluated in the same way that other pets are currently evaluated by the calculator.

Feel free to post feedback to the Stratics thread (linked above). This calc will likely move to its permanent home this weekend. I’ll keep you posted!

In the next week or so, the site you’re looking at now will become the new look of UOCraft.com. Don’t worry – I’m working on the new design. 😛

Stay tuned and keep an eye on UOCraft.com for the overhaul!

Tamers – feel free to try out the Greater Dragons update in the Pet Power Calculator. Post feedback to this thread on UOForums.com. Thanks!
