I'm going to try and update the wiki pages as much as I can, I honestly cannot do this without other users providing the information for the pages. I think the MSMA/Weapon crafting skill numbers are still correct, But we are still missing information about battleships, AP2 and a few more.
There's also some tables that need updating to the format of these tables so it looks cleaner.Read more >
The server has now been reset, all accounts has been deleted.
If you have not yet downloaded the new game client update you should do that now,
The following changes has been made to UCGO.
§ New stats for MS and weapons.
§ Mining is more profitable. Don’t try to use weapons crafting for making money.
§ The buying and selling prices for several MS and weapons has been changed.
§ All fighters and tanks has more armor.
§ Thundergoliat has a lot more armor now. Raiding mines will be harder.
§ It is possible to carry 2000 energypacks. This was done because shell users can carry a lot more ammo than beam users.
§ MS crafting is easier.
§ Combat skills increase faster.
§ Mobility for the space type Zakus (R1, R…

Okay, for those of you that are a bit new to UCGO, updating the game when updates are released can be a bit confusing. There are a few common mistakes people make when downloading and installing these updates, which can include not placing the update package in the right folder after downloading it, or forgetting to extract it. So, in this blog post, I'll give those who are a bit confused a little step by step guide on how to update UCGO.
In this UCGO server, updates are released off the main website every now and again. These updates are far and few in between, but are required to play the game the way it's supposed to be played, and to avoid the unthinkable: crashing the game.
Anyways, to find the updates, go to the main website: http://ww…

It is now possible to use the new MS colors.
Those who have not yet installed the update should install it now. Otherwise you will not be able to see players using the new MS colors and your game might crash.Read more >
The new game client update is now available for download.
This update adds new colors for the following MS:
EF: Zanny, RX-75, RGM-79L, RGM-79C, RGM-79(g), GM Head, RX-79G, G-3
Zeon: Zaku2S, MS-09, MSM-07, MSM-07E, MS-14A, MS-14B, MS-14S
NOTE: The new MS colors will be displayed in the factory window but it will not be possible to craft them until the next server update. The server will be updated on Sunday or Monday.Read more >
At the request of the PSGM there’s a new rule. “Ranting” might get you banned, such as chat spamming, foul language etc… TALK NORMALLY IN PUBLIC CHAT!Read more >
Later this week or next week I will release a game client update with new MS colors.
About donations/payment for the server; this has been taken care of and it will not be necessary. This server will probably continue to exist for a few more years.
The remake of the client is currently on hold. I will be busy working on a commercial game project so right now I have other things to do. The remake has not been cancelled but its future is undecided, maybe it will be done or maybe not.Read more >
Many players has probably noticed the server could be a little slow when there was over 700 players online and battles in Richmond or Newman. That was because network use on the server would be 90% to 100% at those times, UCGO uses a lot of bandwidth just as it uses a lot of CPU power.
The server has been upgraded and hopefully it will perform better when there are many players online fighting in Richmond/Newman.
To avoid any confusion: This does not mean the game will run faster and you will not get higher FPS. But the response time from the server should be better and hopefully less lag when there are many players online.Read more >
The stats for several MS has been adjusted. It is mainly the weaker and less popular MS which has been made stronger.Read more >
Several of the mobilesuits in UCGO are so slow that they are almost useless. This new game client update will increase the mobility of several MS and the range of some weapons. Also the guntanks will no longer need fighter skill.
Download update: speedUpdate.exe
To install the update: download to UCGO folder and run speedUpdate.exe.
The following MS will receive an increase in their mobility.
Guncannons, all types.
Guntanks, all types.
RGM-79, RGM-79D, RGM-79G, RGC-80, Zanny, GM Trainer, RX-78-1.
Zaku, all types except for high mobility types.
Acguy, Agguguy, Juagg, Gogg, Gasshia, ZoGok, Gigan.
Note: they are not getting an enormous bonus to their mobility, but it should be easier to for example move around in newman/richmond and jumping from cli…Read more >
Admin: In the UCGO beta version there was a weapon called Raketen Bazooka. I have taken the 3D model for that weapon and inserted it into the current UCGO client, see the pictures below. It is not finished yet, some parts of the weapon are not shown correctly.

Admin: As many players probably know; sometimes the game can crash while trading and you might lose the items. This is probably caused by running the game in Windows 7 or Vista. I have experienced this several times on Windows 7 but never on Windows XP.
The server has been updated so that if UCGO crashes while trading your items will be saved. MS/Vehicles will be returned to your hangar. Weapons, clothes and materials will be moved to the bank. And money will be moved to your backpack.
I’m not sure if it’s 100% safe to use /trade now but I have done some testing and it seems to work correctly.Read more >
Admin has updated the site:
The format of the UCGO 3D models has now been almost completely reversed. In the sceenshot below you can see I have loaded the MS-14 beam rifle into 3D Studio Max.
By now I am almost 100% sure it will be possible to add new weapons and MS to UCGO. However this takes a lot of work and time so do not expect new MS anytime soon.Read more >
New website news from admin:
More progress has been made with the UCGO 3D models. In the picture below you will see a GM with a strange head, those who have assembled gunpla before will probably recognize this part.
This means I am currently able to remove parts from an MS and replace it with a new part. The “pelvis” part in the picture was taken from the GM Sniper and inserted into the RGM-79 3D model.
So far I know how to set the (x,y,z) coordinates for vertices and define polygons. Once I find out how to do UV mapping and surface normals it should be possible to get new 3D models into UCGO.
To make one thing clear and avoid rumors: You will NOT get new MS next month and you will not get Kampfer and Al…

Admin just updated the UCGO Server site with this new post:
I just wanted to post an update saying I’ve made progress with the UCGO 3D models. In the picture below you can see I have removed the head and shoulder armor of a RGM-79.
I am fairly confident it will be possible to add new weapons and MS to UCGO, however it will probably take some time since it’s complicated to do.Read more >
It is now possible to train your battleship construction skill. This will make it possible to upgrade tanks and Magella attacks.
Read more >
NOTE! This does not mean it will be possible to use battleships. But UCGO uses battleship construction skill for upgrading tanks and Magella attacks.
Another Ayers Rock platform, or maybe even at Orbost, Would be a classic styled fight with players at a line, then rushing at the whistle. (hommage to traditional roman or greek type fighting) Basic, Heat hawks and RX-78 Sabers only.
Often one of the underated aspects of the game, but fun to use if you get the hang of it.
Dogfight would be limited to planes (MIDEA & Fat Uncle use? Discuss.) and probably be at ayers rock again :)
any other suggestions or ideas? comment below :)Read more >
Admin has updated the server with the following:
New EF MS colors: G-3, RX-78-2 (two), RX-79G, RX-79G Ez8, RGM-79(g), RGM-79L
New Zeon MS colors: MS-14B, MS-14S, MS-14, MS-09RS DOM, MSM-07 Zgok.
New clothes: Boater (hat), Strawhat, EF beret, Zeon overseas cap, protective sunglasses, safety goggles.
EF gets new colors for RX-78 and RX-79G shield (Store bought only; cannot be crafted.)
All Shields now have similar (if not the same) strength. (EX shields are now also equal to each other.)
NEW WIKI FEATURES UNDERWAY!
