Economy / Donation Philosophy on UO Evolution Freeshard
« Last post by Evolution on July 07, 2018, 12:18:03 PM »

Donation Philosophy

Donations help us improve the shard, content and hardware. It costs a lot to maintain a top staff, connection, and advertise if there is no financial support from the community.

Many players never donate and that's fine, this IS meant to be a free shard. You can still enjoy the shard and get all the items in-game with time and effort. This is by no means a typical pay-to-play shard, we do invest the donations back in to the shard to improve the gameplay.

Many generous players donate because they recognize the shard as an amazing place to enjoy, just like going to a movie or out to dinner. They find value in our time and what we do here on the shard for your entertainment.
Some players have a limited time to play so they choose the donation option as a way to skip the grind and get right into the action! I made this option for people like me, who have a job, but limited time to play and don't mind spending a few dollars to support the shard and to not "waste" their time training for a few months to have fun.

The non-donors should love this, more players, more action, stimulates the economy and more loot in game to plunder! The donors "pay" the costs and make the shard FREE to play for everyone!

Donations are also important to create the in-game economy. It makes a market between new players that have ED and Veteran players that don't. The veteran players have a lot of gold/items and the new players have ED and desire gold/items, it makes the world go around!

The monthly donation subscriptions really help me budget the shard expenses and plan for future expansions.

Please give a big thanks to anyone you know that has donated and never give them grief. They are a huge part of the success of the freeshard community!

Thank you to the community for all the past donations and for improving "your" shard. I appreciate all the support for this project and the game we all love!

Everything sounds correct...just make sure you have both Load Client and UO Data Directory pointing to the same place.  Below is an example of my config and I'm able to get in fine.

Help! / Can't connect through Razor
« Last post by Kaadiart on July 05, 2018, 05:17:40 PM »
I've been unable to connect to my account through razor.

I'd love to use steam.  That would be wonderful.  But steam doesn't support 4k monitors, and I'm not lowering my DPI to 'impossible to use' levels just so I can barely play Ultima.  Steam looks completely garbled and unusable on 4k monitors, there's lots of subjects about it on multiple forums with no solutions.

So anyway, razor. 

I've used the auto-installer.  My UO Data Directory is 'C:\Program Files (x86)\UO Evolution'  I've tried using both the 'client.exe' and the 'client_noenc.exe' in the same directory with the same problem.  "Patch Client Encryption" has been checked, but "Use OSI Encryption" has not.

The server is "", and the port is 2593.

I'm running as Administrator.

Game boots up.  I put in my UN/PW.  I either get stuck on "Verifying Account" indefinitely or get the "Cannot Connect to Origin" message.  If I boot up the client without Razor, then I'm able to log in.

I'm not playing this without Razor or Steam; not a chance.   :)

Any ideas?

Help! / max healing speed?
« Last post by Iago Venport on July 02, 2018, 01:47:15 PM »
Hey all, we recently joined the shard and I'm loving it!   I'm wondering if it's possible on this shard to essentially get instant heals with stacking dex (up to 220).  Looking over the wiki it states the following about healing and dex:

The formula to calculate healing speed is: (result should be rounded up)
Healing Self: 11 - (Dexterity / 20)
Healing Others: 4 - (Dexterity / 60)

At present, the maximum dexterity cap is 165; which can be gained purely via attribute points or a combination of attribute points & gear related bonuses. Any additional dexterity bonuses, over 165, are left out of the equation, until a negative factor alters the equation, requiring it to be recalculated entirely.

I'm stuck on what having the cap at 165 actually means and if additional dex is left out of the healing equation.

For example:  11- (220/20) = 11 - 10 = 1 = instant heal (hypothetically)...

does anybody have any insight to this?
