YeOldeSphere

ABOUT THE PROJECT

    Ye Olde Sphere is an effort to wind back the clock and re-visit the 2000 – 2004 era of Ultima Online using the modern Sphere X emulator. The script pack has been completely overhauled from the bottom up and missing features have been properly implemented.  22+ years of experience and knowledge are harnessed to achieve the shard’s objectives. We’re going back to the start, and getting the basics right. 

 

WHAT OBJECTIVES ?

I.

Accurately emulate the 2000-2004 UO era in the script pack while preserving the Sphere 55i feel and PvP style.

II.

Help the continued development of the Sphere X emulator. Improvement for the emulator is a priority for this project.

III.

Continue to develop beyond that of the era we seek to emulate, innovating on and expanding on proven concepts.

I really like this shard! It really brings me back to the days of CRT monitors and drinking surge all night long!

Is it a great shard? Well let me put it this way, I’ve soiled my armor a couple times, and that’s saying something.
