Corpses lasting longer.

I would really appreciate it if corpses lasted longer.

In EQ you had days to get to your corpse, and sometimes you needed it as it might take hours to get back to where you died.
In Ultima I feel I am under constant anxiety, as if I get distracted I may come back to find myself dead and my corpse gone.

Maybe there is some issue with server performance, but I have the feeling that issue was more relevant in 1997.

Half an hour or an hour would be more reasonable than the 15 minutes it seems to be now.

I think the time delay for corpses is a pretty decent time for getting back and getting items.

You said......... "if I get distracted I may come back to find myself dead and my corpse gone".
Don't leave your char in an area if there's any chance that you can die. One of 2 other options is to add a little bit of hiding to your skills so that you can hide if you have to take a piss or something. The other option is to buy an undertakers staff from the UOStore.

Yea I have thought about adding hiding, also thanks for pointing out the staff.

I understand Ultima also has Insurance and things. That is all great.

Honestly doubt corpse decay time will be changed, but I am hopeful on that as well. I get distracted easily...

I mean, I dont see a problem with adding longer times to corpse delay. It was done after the release of Trammel if i remember correctly. But it is actually quite long now... maybe 10 minutes or so it seems?

I would like to add, if the corpse decay time was in a number of 'days' I would be happy.

In vanilla Everquest I don't think your corpse ever even expired.

This is not something we plan on changing.

The Undertakers Staff helps.
