Neat! It was beginning to be painful in UOAM not seeing New Haven.

Well, now let's just hope they'll work on the town design and make it a bit more cosy... and remove that big stone structure in the middle. It makes the place messy.

that is not going to happen anytime soon. Since that "big stone structure" is where you begin as a new player if you are using the KR client. That is the only place to get the new player experience (not the new player quests) and why EAMythic removed the 2D new player experience. To force players in KR.

This is positively brilliant!

A question: can I use UOAM with KR? I never even bothered to try, but now I'm wondering...should I be downloading this to my spiffy new laptop?

Curses - foiled again.

Thanks for the tip, though. Is anyone working on a UOAM equivalent for KR?

Pretty please?

nope,

EAMythic will tell you use the KR map, Many people that are in love with the KR client also blindly say the KR map is better.

While I found the KR map ok, it was also bad at least for me ( I am colorblind) therefore even though you can change colors of the various things to mark on your map. many of the colors are too close in shade/hue for someone with my problem.

Never really used uoam either, downloaded it at one time. Just do not see the need for it. The world is not that big. And over the years, I have pretty much memorized most of the city layouts. 2D map always been enough for me.

KR map stinks compared to UOAM.

- Icons are limited. All my shops look the same and I have to mouse over each one to read it's name. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

- Can't use plug-ins. I'm pulling my hair out doing T-maps without UOAM to tell me to nudge one tile to the left

- I looks different than UOAM/2D. After 125 months playing this game, I'd really prefer not to have to squint and wonder what I'm looking at. I heavily used UOAM in the day, and I miss it.

- Not that it matters without 8x8, but KR doesn't show server lines. UOAM lets me know when to watch out for hordes of ganking reds just over the horizon. Plus, I can never remember precisely where that stupid line is southeast of Brit Gate.

The one (and possibly only!) category in which UOAM excells is the little red dots that tell me where I can get a rez. Best. Thing. Ever. about KR.

If you miss uoam that much,

why not return to 2D?. Personally I found KR not that great of an improvment for me to switch from 2D, graphic wise. I was trying to get use to KR with one character that I use a lot. I was finally getting things worked out to my setup, when KR refused to patch for me. And I sure as hell aint downloading that mess again.

Plus items in the backpack, I have no idea what the hell they are. where as in 2D the items are clear.

Personally I am also tried of people whining about UO on their flat screen monitors. Gee people UO was first coded what? 13-14 years ago. So you got a new flat screen so you can watch your movie/music downloads. What the hell did you do with your old monitors? Just hook one back up, your UO size problem is solved. I know I have 3 crt screens which all still work (oldest is from my first computer in 96), I have 2 monitors on my current computer, one flat screen, one 17 inch crt which I use to play UO on, its no big deal. I use the flat screen for all other new games on my hard drive.

oh well, maybe someday the KR map will get better for you.

I run UO on my 20" wide flat screen and it looks fine. Lots of extra black space on the right.

On the second monitor 17" CRT I open UOAM. I use UOAM to mark resource locations, friends houses and such. Runebooks are tedious.

I also couldn't get the posted HAVEN maps to work in UOAM ... I even removed ALL of the originals ... and somehow it knew how to look up the old haven map ... very weird.

I haven't tried that ML uoam patch ... will try that tonight.

No, the problems was that when i stay at New Haven ( that i see well, the char is not tracked. Also if i move myself, the point of tracking is stopped.
But now I've resolved all. I've restarted my computer. Maybe it was one of the mystery of pc!
Now it's all working fine.
Thanks :)
