UORudder was designed to help you navigate your boat without having
to setup a bunch of macros. It also provides a compact interface
that makes navigation easier.
UORudder was written in Visual Basic 6.0, It does not interact
with the data stream of Ultima Online, rather it sends a combination
of key strokes to you Ultima Online window. -- Think of it as automatically
typing words for you.
This window is set to always be on top. That means it
will sit on top of you UO playing surface. you can turn
this off if you wish under Options.
To set the speed at which you wish to sail, click on One,
Slow or Normal. You may use these buttons while underway
to change speeds at anytime.
Each direction has its own arrow button. To move in that
direction click the appropriate button. To stop, click the
Stop button in the center. To come about, click the middle
button at the bottom.
You can raise and drop your anchor by clicking on the anchor
button. The serpent pillar's commands are accessed by the
button in the lower right corner.
||There is also a more advanced interface for those who use
maps on their Tillerman. you can activate the advanced features
by using the drop down menu - Interface. Click on Advanced
and the Navigation by Map will appear.
To use this feature, hand a map to your tillerman that
has been setup with way points. To go to any of these way
points simple click the appropriate number.
You can sail from point to point in order using start,
also you may continue a stopped pattern by hitting continue.
If you are not sure which point you are going to, click
on Nav and the Tillerman will tell you the active point.
Please note: the use of these buttons will turn off the
"Rotate with Ship" function. You will have to
reset your ship's direction once you are finished traveling
To switch to "Rotate Mode" click
on one of the blue gems to indicate in which direction your
ship is facing.
It is very easy to tell that you are in "Rotate Mode":
Once in this mode the arrow corresponding with the direction
your boat is facing will change color. When you turn off
"Rotate Mode" by clicking the topmost blue gem,
the arrow buttons will go back to the original color.
