To say the least this was a massive update, 2 new systems completely unique to UO.   Aspects of designing, solving and coding has been in progress for over 3 years working towards updating the flaws of crafting and bring modern play mechanics to a 25 year old game.  The key thing is without forcing or removing the original points of UO that many have come to love.  Like we will not be removing the existing craft system that involves runic tools but instead based on what you desire to craft and create will determine what system is best for you.  The Today system will allow players to easily access many unique features of Evolution and complete against players during events.
This weekend/Week/Month myself and staff will be testing different things and bringing them online.  First will be the Mother's Day event, we have some new deco for rewards plus some very critical components to the recipe craft system that you will need as you explore the new systems.  Then as we test new components the reward tables will be updated (No restarted needed if things are approved).  If we need to do an update to resolve an  issue I will usually wait until the next morning.  My goal is to move this along as fast as possible while not interfering with playing.
I hope everyone enjoys
