Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some questions we get asked on a regular basis. This is a living document and gets updated regularly.
Who runs this server?
This project is run by Sith and Daleron, two long-time ZH players who have been around off and on since the early days before ZH had specs/classes.
What emulator are you running?
We hard-forked RunUO and have heavily customized it.
Will feature XYZ be in?
You should read our design philosophy for context, but basically: We're starting with a back-to-basics server and then we're going to go in our own direction while taking into account what Zulu Hotel fans have come to expect. Our goal is not to exactly recreate POL in RunUO.
Did you fix (insert bug here) from POL?
See above. We didn't recreate POL so most bugs would not have carried over. We have our own new bugs to worry about. Our goal is not to recreate POL. Our goal is to create an awesome Zulu Hotel experience.
I can't use the dropskill command to drop skills with spaces in the name such as Animal Taming
Here is the list of skill shortforms:
How do I get vendors to train me?
Instead of "Vendor train", use their name, i.e. "Billy train"
How do I log in?
Auto-account is on. Just download the client, point your
game.zuluhotel.ca,2593and pick an account/password combination. Your account will be automatically created.
I logged in but now I'm stuck on a random island??
For the Beta test phase, you need an invite key which can be obtained from monster loot. See the beta test page for more information.
What are the rules on macroing?
Macroing is generally allowed, however unattended gathering of resources is not. We have automated systems to detect and deter this. We don't like to take these actions but it is bad for the server's in-game economy and so we must.
Gold is very heavy. So heavy that I can't carry enough to make large purchases. How do I buy a house?
Gold is... gold. It's supposed to be heavy. However, NPC shopkeepers will happily withdraw from your bank account directly, so long as you have sufficient balance in your bank box.
