Default Ultima Online - Zulu Australia

Just an FYI that this server is now back online. You can download the client and all necessary files via the Zulu Hotel Australia website:

http://zha.19.forumer.com/viewforum.php?f=1

Zulu Hotel Australia was a very popular private server for UO a few years ago.

The server is quite good i'm personally pinging 35ms to it.

See you in game!

I used to play UO ages ago, on dial up no less... Was the only MMO I've enjoyed and one of my fondest gaming memories.

Almost tempted to pick it up again...

Macroing 24/7 is allowed so it's really easy to get started, earn money and skill up etc.

Just follow these instructions to get up and running:

go to http://www.findfiles.com/list.php?st...ch=All&search=

then:

step 1 : install uo, do not patch
step 2 : delete speech.mul in your uo directory.

step 3 : go to http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~tho...downloads.html and get the appropriate zulu files.

step 4 : overwrite hues/skills etc in your uo directory with the ones you just downloaded.

step 5 : download injection and extract it to your uo directory.

step 6 : run the injection launcher, set client dir to your uo directory (important: clients must go in the uo root folder or they wont work.), edit the server list, create an entry for zha with address 119.63.206.24,5001
set client to the zha client, set the ignition path to your injection directory, launch and play with the login you have set up at http://119.63.206.24:6060/accounts.htm

zulu hotel has it's own ruleset/ pub.. have to try the server to understand.

lots of old players playing zulu again i hope to see more of you there, aswell as any newcomers!

a handy information vault is at :

http://home.concepts-ict.nl/~terence/

and the official website (partially broken links, including players online/ server status). here:

http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~thomasp1/

86 players online at the time of me writing this.
hooray! (monday morning)

Which client is this?

If it is the new client they brought out I'd consider giving it a go.

I used to play on a free shard a while ago on the 3d client but it did not like vista64 so much.

The original one is too farken dated and looks like balls, id rather play tetris

I loved UO.

Nothing like beating down an opponent, looting their corpse, dimembering the body parts and cooking the meat, and feeding it to your rainbow unicorn.

Oh boy, don't really want to waste christmas holidays on UO. But then again, it's possibly the best game I've ever played.. so maybe it's worth it.

whoa haven't played UO in years, did try zulu at one stage but since they didnt run on sphereserver I couldn't exploit!

I see they allow 24/7 macroing. Good good.
What are skillgains like? Hopefully not slow. Stat/Skill caps?
