I Am the Lord of Ultima (well, not yet) Part 16
– by Goemon
Last time I mentioned my plans for the construction of a beach side resort/ naval base, obviously on the coast of this continent called Caledonia (that’s some alliteration for you guys. I run a highly intellectual column here). Well, I have a decent enough start, at least I think I do. I haven’t looked at any tutorials for towns focusing on ship building, but I think I get the concept of as many barracks and specific unit buildings as possible.
Here’s what I have so far; let me know what you think:
I’m solely building Sloops for now, because they seem like the most well rounded (solid defense, decent enough offense). My other option is Frigates, which are the siege unit of the naval world, but until I can buffer the rest of my offensive cities I think I’ll hold out on that for now. I’ve tried a few naval raids but they’ve been pretty anticlimactic since I haven’t built up enough of a fleet just yet.
Enough about my pathetic attempt at a naval base, though. Let’s talk about YOU. Well, me as well, but only because this concerns all Lord of Ultima players in general. I’ve talked a bit about the endgame before, but I really do enjoy reading through all the raging forum goers continuously complaining about it. It’s got to be the number one complaint.
Right now, the gates just look like this.
But eventually, and allegedly “soon,” they will look like this.
And once this subtle blue hue is added, the world of Ultima will pretty much go to hell. Riots in the towns. Armies turning against their kings. Players betraying their alliances (Note- none of this will actually happen, except for possibly backstabbing players).
Seriously though, the world will literally end soon after these gates open- I, as well as most of the rest of the community, can’t wait to see what happens.
