Probably more like 12 years off line! I was a beta tester for a while, and was on with UO first went live.

Those were some buggy days! Yikes!

So I got back on and the game is playing solidly. But I had a couple concerns...


What is the current recommended Mapping utility? I remember using UOAM which was cool back in the day, you could track your buddies in your party which was a blast. But it seems to not be working anymore? Obsolete? Is there an alternative these days?

The Trammel facets seem nearly devoid of players these days, and the vendors are all empty. Are there any busy spots in any Trammel facets you can recommend?

The Fel facets are also fairly un-crowded to say the least. Do I really need to worry about being jumped by PK's like back in the day? Or is PvP more of an event-based activity these days? Just trying to understand the Lay of the Land.

i did manage to chat it up with another player that nicely gave me 100,000 gold and a House Placement Tool. What do you recommend for a House and can you suggest what area to looking for a placement?

That's all the Q's I could cobble to together for now, so BIG thanks for any help! =)

I believe Ultima Mapper | Player Tracking Refined is the current mapping program.
As far as your other questions, it really depends on the shard you are playing on.

You can find housing just about anywhere these days unless you play Atlantic which is the busiest shard and is still crowded house wise. I can't speak for the pvp on Napa Valley which I believe is your shard. On Pacific, the pkers battle each other around Yew Moongate and they also fight down in the dungeons, making war over champ spawns and power scrolls. If you run into a pk in the rest of the lands, there's a good chance you'll get jumped, but you don't run into them very much these days.

Thanks you two that's a great start! Yes I think staying clear of Champ Spawns and Dungeons will make worrying about getting PK'd a thing of the past. A couple Recall Scrolls should be enough of a safety net as I go about my newbie business.

Thanks for the Mapper tip, I will see if I can get that going.

I still welcome any more newbie tips along these lines, so please chime in! Thanks again!
