This is the most important part of the UO Magic Tool. There
are 8 tabs that represent the 8 spell circles and 2 tabs
that can be used to access the 16 most used spells. Color
coded bars and some numbers give information about all
spells in the game.
2 tabs have
been added to show the Necromancer spells, and 2 tabs have
been added to show the Paladin spells. You can see those
tabs on the right side of the Necromancer and Paladin spell
Some spell icons are brownish, other are grayish. The brown
icons represent spells that are written in your spell book,
the gray icons are the spells you have not yet written in
your spell book
Above each icon is a colored bar that gives an indication
of the amount of spells that can be cast with the current
amount of reagents. Green indicates enough reagents are available,
Yellow indicates that you are running low on reagents (3
or less of at least one of the required reagents for the
spell. This amount can be changed, see below), Red indicates
you are out of at least 1 of the required reagents.
Below each icon is a colored bar that gives an indication
of the effect of the spell. Blue bars indicate these spells
can be safely used within the guarded areas such as towns.
Note that this not necessarily means they will have no negative
effect on your karma, healing an evil character is still
a bad thing to do. Red bars indicate spells that will do
damage or have other negative effects. Do not use these spells
in guarded areas for you will surely be caught by the guards.
The numbers inside these bars tell you the chance of success
when casting that spell. The chance depends on your current
skill levels (see below).
To the right of the spell icons you can see how much mana
and gold a spell costs. Just move the mouse over a spell
icon to see the corresponding data. Also shown are the name
of the spell and the words of power that are chanted during
display has been added to aid Paladins. Click the amount
of tithing points displayed to edit it manually.
Left-clicking on an icon will send the corresponding macro
key to the UO window (i.e. Alt-1 for the first spell in the
first circle). You have to make sure you have set up the
spell macros in UO to correspond with this tool, or set up
the macros in this tool to correspond with UO. Clicking an
icon will also subtract the reagents or tithing points that
are used by the spell from the total amount of reagents.
Right-clicking on an icon will open a window with extra
information about that spell (see below).
Ctrl-clicking on an icon will add the reagents for that
spell to the current container. It will *not* cast the spell.
If you could not cast the spell in UO because your spell
book was not available, or you were holding a weapon in your
hand the reagents will be subtracted from the total. Click
the 'Undo' button to undo the subtraction.
Users of UO Assist by Tugsoft can
click on the 'Count' button to start the counting of reagents
in your backpack.
Whenever you cast a spell directly in UO (from your spellbook,
or by using the UO spell icons) then UO Assist will notice
this and notify the Magic Tool. The Magic Tool will then
update the reagent count in the current reagent container
or the tithing count. So now you can cast spells by clicking
on the icons in the Magic Tool or by clicking on the icons
in UO, the result is the same. Without UO Assist the Magic
Tool does not receive notification of spells you cast directly
in UO. I strongly suggest you only cast spell by clicking
on the icons in the Magic Tool if you do not use UO Assist.
Users of UO Assist now see the curent Magery, Necromancy,
Chivalry, Intelligence and Mana reflected in the Magic Tool.
If any of these 3 change in the game then the corresponding
fields in the Magic Tool will be updated. The current amount
of mana and tithing points is displayed left of the 'Undo'
If you do not have enough mana the %chance of success will
be displayed as 0.
If the %chance of success is 0 the tool will optionally
not let you use that spell.
A button for Meditation has been added to the main screen.
Clicking this will invoke the Meditation skill if you have
entered the correct macro key in the settings window (see
Clicking on the background of the tool will remove all borders,
thus making the tool occupy less screen space. A good spot
to click on is between the block of buttons on the right
side of the tool. This feature comes in handy when used together
with the 'always on top' feature. Clicking the background
of the tool again will restore the borders.
