Exult

About

Exult is the masterpiece that inspired all the other SDL-based engines. After having started off as a humble viewer of the Ultima 7 game world, it quickly evolved into a complete engine for Ultima 7, along with many improvements. Development on Exult is complete, and development is now concentrating on improving minor things with Exult itself, developing Exult Studio and developing Pentagram (below) for Ultima 8.

Hacki's Ultima Page

About

Hacki's Ultima Page is the only Ultima website dedicated to nitpicking the Ultima series, i.e. discovering every little fault in the games. This site is an extensive archive of Ultima nitpicks submitted by many different people; anyone can submit a nitpick, though there are a few simple rules to prevent it from getting boring (no nitpicking of bugs, for example).

Hacki's Ultima Page started off by aggressively nitpicking Ultima 9, to prove what a poor game it is. For fun, the nitpicking tradition was eventually extended to all the other Ultimas.

Ultima: Aiera

About

Aiera was made by Withstand the Fury Dragon to continue the legacy of Ultima: The Reconstruction when it became silent and out of date. Aiera was for a long time the top Ultima remakes hub, hosting downloads of the Ultima remakes, and posting news regularly about them, until it was reincarnated as The Ultima Codex by the same author.

I had assisted in the creation and maintenance of Aiera, and Withstand the Fury Dragon and I have often collaborated to bring the best of Ultima news and resources to the Ultima community.

UltimaDot

About

UltimaDot was once a very active news site, especially in the time of Ultima X when it reported news several times a day.

Eventually RPGDot (the parent site of UltimaDot) was taken over by Jolt; soon afterwards the UltimaDot crew left to create RPGWatch. After that, a brief period of time followed in which UltimaDot saw only UO-related updates, and finally the whole RPGDot network was taken down.

IT-HE Software

About

IT-HE Software is a unique site mostly dedicated to abusing the games' technical flaws and glitches (aka bugs). This page is famous particularly for its anti-walkthroughs (walkthroughs describing how to beat the game by breaking all the rules, exploiting bugs, being evil and enjoying it a good deal), but also for its extensive list of fun things to do in the games from Ultima 6 to 9. Even after having read through it several times, you can go back one day to read it again, and it will still make you laugh.

Ultima Maps and Tables

About

Arthuris Dragon's Ultima Maps and Tables incorporates some miscellaneous resources, mostly consisting of maps. The maps here are unique, and the most precious to me are the complete Ultima Underworld (1 and 2) maps and the huge computer-generated maps of Ultima 7 (parts 1 and 2).

At Arthuris Dragon's personal page are hosted the IRC logs of most of the Ultima engines.

The information for Ultimas 1-6 seems to be taken from other sources (especially the Ultima Web Archive) but the Ultima 7 parts are really detailed and apparently original. Even sidequests are well explained.

Windows-Native Ultima 2

About

Ultima 2 in Windows is hosted at Ultima: The Reconstruction and can be used to run Ultima 2 under Windows. Unlike the other engines listed here, this does not seem to be cross-platform and focuses only on Windows. The last release dates back to 2000, and the project does not seem to be maintained any more, but that doesn't matter as it is complete after all. Along with the ability to play the old Ultima 2, there are also options you can set to your comfort, such as the screen resolution, the colours and the ability to easily restart the game.

The Lost Vale

About

The Lost Vale is a fanfiction written by Amazing Dragon to give life to the add-on of Ultima 8 that was never released. Unfortunately, the files were lost on his host, but thanks to Natreg Dragon I was able to recover them and put them back online. It is a known fact that Dino's Ultima Page itself started as a simple host for this fanfiction. Nowadays, it is also hosted at the Dragon Press.

The version I am hosting has undergone some changes. The frames and background music were removed, the main page was completely rewritten, and there were some minor corrections. A few screenshots of the site's former shape are available below.

Ultima 9 - Redemption

About

Redemption began under the lead of Avatus. Problems arose when he left; the team lost motivation and the project was heading for a fall. In September 2004, however, Corv from Ultima - The New King offered to join forces, and the two teams merged to form the Titans of Ether.

After 12 years in development, the Titans of Ether also gave up on Ultima 9: Redemption and cancelled the project in December 2016.

The soundtrack [Spotify | YouTube] for Ultima 9: Redemption, composed in 2006-2008 by Matti Paalanen while the project was in the hands of the Titans of Ether, has survived.

Ultima 7: Blackrock

About

Ultima 7: Blackrock was a project using the Exult engine which aimed to remake The Black Gate and Serpent Isle, adding the long-forgotten Serpent Isle original plot and elaborating on elements in The Black Gate that could have been expanded further.

From their website:

What is Ultima 7: Blackrock?

Ultima 7: Blackrock is a project to addon to and expand the story and game world of the Ultima 7: Black Gate and Ultima 7 Part Two: Serpent Isle games. It elaborates on a lot of "what if" scenarios in both games, adding to an already very open pair of games. It also adds a few new plot elements and twists into the storyline of the two games and brings a lot of elements from previous Ultima games back into the story.
