    So, i recently remembered the Body Sculptors and took a trip down to them on most of my chars. The "Undead" appearance looks particularly good on my Necro/Mages, as does the "Vampire" look on my Sampire/Whammies. I was kind of disappointed though that you can't apply these to a Gargoyle.
    Unfortunately, these looks only apply when your paperdoll is viewed in the EC. Is there any way the devs can make these looks apply to the CC as well?
    Here's the looks. http://uo2.stratics.com/miscellaneous/the-body-sculptor

    Counterpoint: No, leave our paperdolls alone in the real client.

    It would be awesome if the body sculptors made an actual ingame change to both clients, not just in the EC paper doll.

    By the way, both clients are real and used by many people, no matter how dense some people can be.

    There is alternative face art in the CC. Has been for YEARS, just not active.

    The Faces/Body Types offered by the Body Sculptor are completely optional. If you want to keep the default, "vanilla" look for your own paperdoll, you can. However, i wouldn't mind seeing the Face/Body Types show up in the CC as well, for those whom opt to change their own appearance.
    I remembered the Body Sculptors when i was doing a Navrey in EC (which i was using for the instant Equipment Set swaps, to swap into a Luck Suit just as she hit 0-4% health and to equip/unequip Stone Boots fast), and saw a person with the "Undead" look and i was like "How the hell did they do that?", then i remembered changing the faces of some of my chars at Luna NPCs with the Third Dawn client, so i went to see if the NPCs were still there/worked.

    Both the "Hellian" and "Native Papuan" appearances look tattoed.

    I always thought they were awesome and yes they should be in both clients.... as well there ought to be a body sculptor for Gargoyles as well as a way to change your horns and maybe skin tone.... Humans could do it as well not just elves ...... ever hear of tanning? Might be nice to have such things available to everyone.

    Also would be cool to have more choices. More new faces and hairstyles and such. As well as some tatoo's... Should like more beard styles as well. People like to customize and be unique, it's part of what makes UO great.

    I don't even like seeing elves and gargoyles as player races.

    Wonder if they could make a clasic, classic view for all those like you....

    Course I don't mind seeing the gargoyle..... I just hate the flappy flappy wings and could NEVER understand why they have to constantly be flapping about... and most don't have the courtesy to see what they are blocking and land when appropriate.

    Me too. One of the disks, anyhow. Think the other one got stuck on a CD spindle that got lost, the Play disk

    Yeah, the Elves are nowhere in Ultima Lore.

    Yep, that game was along the same lines as the Baldur's Gate "Bhaalspawn" series (not to be confused with the ****ty console "Dark Alliance" series). Both damn good D&D based RPGs developed by the same company. In fact, the Baldur's Gate series has gotten a revamp with the "Enhanced" editions that have recently come out, and they're talking about potentially making a Baldur's Gate 3.

    They were in the earliest Ultimas, but once Richard Garriot really started to establish his own IP, they completely disappeared from Ultima lore. Kind of like how in TES I: Arena there are preachers wearing crosses sitting outside of churches talking about "the Devil", yet when Bethesda really started to establish their own IP with TES II: Daggerfall, that completely disappeared.
