    Yes, I know... not everyone cares about unicorns, but they have been so ugly for so long, with a gait about as graceful as an elephant wearing too-tight ballet slippers. :(

    It would be a wonderful thing if these [should be lovely] creatures got a UO facelift.

    I'd be happy if they just returned them to their placeholder pure white form. =D

    personally I'd be content if they just let us mod the art so we didnt have to look at the current unicorns. wouldn't even care if it looked ugly to others.

    I do not want plain white blah horses...

    I want unicorns...

    I always thought they should come in a wonderous variety of colors... much like Hiryu.

    yeah actually, as much as i hate to talk about tedious trammel issues, they don't exactly fit in with the other artwork, the op is correct, really awful.

    Maybe they should take the Silver Steed graphic and build upon it somehow to incorporate a new unicorn graphic. Oh yeah, and then buff the unicorn. I guess I could care less, I don't use them, my tamer is a male. I'd rather have anyone be able to use them but the way they look right now--and the fact they suck compared to a mare--leaves me little desire.

    ^ LOL ^

    The thing that amazes me is... out of everything in UO that could use a graphical boost.... the Unicorn is what people want?

    Besides, even with a new graphic it will still be a near useless pet in most situations.

    Please read the original post again, CovenantX. I did not suggest that very many people "want" this (or particularly care). I happen to think an improved look would be nice, regardless of how "useless" some may view this pet. Certainly there's no harm in the suggestion, since some players do happen to be fond of the creature. :)

    the devs should work on revamping some old mobs after they finish with dungeons, towns, and champs. They in the process of doing dungeons, the event arc might lead to revamped towns and champs might get revamped during the dungeon revamp so we might have a chance at some refreshed tameables and/or monsters after that. Though they have to go back to doing the High res update or whatever, maybe after they finish the terrain they can work on monster/tames
