What's New Around Akara

August 2008 Newsletter

Check here to find out what's going on with all the new improvements around Akara



Mondain's Legacy

Later this month the server will be updated to full ML compatibility. There will be many new items and monsters added, but it requires that we wipe all existing logs and boards on the server. This wipe will not effect any logs and boards stored in resource boxes or commodity deeds, only logs in other containers including chests, backpacks, or locked down in houses. To avoid having your logs wiped, please put them all in a resource box or commodity deed before Saturday. After the changes are done, boards of different types, such as elven boards, will now be craftable, plus we are adding 4 new types of logs. I hope everyone enjoys the enhancements we have worked hard to bring you.

It appears they are trying to get the ConnectUO website operating again, but it is causing a crash error when you download the serverlist. To fix this, go to Tools at the top of CUO, click Options, it will open a Settings window. Click on the Browser tab, then go to Template, click the down arrow, and select Default and click Ok. Go back to Tools and click Update Serverlist. The display will look different, but it works and will allow you access to the list and your Favorites.

We are Accepting applications for staff positions, see the Akara Essex website in the forums section for more details.
