Devs, please shrink balls

Discussion in 'UHall' started by canary, Jan 8, 2011.

    The crystal portals (city and dungeon) are not the same size. One ball is really big and the other appears more size proportionate to characters in game. It looks, imo, awkward and makes them not look right as they serve the same purpose.

    If you could, just shrink the crystal portal a little bit so that side by side they are the same. Thank you.

    I would venture to say this is one reason why the devs never get around to fixing anything important in UO.

    Fixing their balls would take like 5 minutes, tops.

    They simply need to resize the original crystal portal.

    So would fixing a game-breaking spell casting mechanic. Just because it's different doesn't mean it's broken. The game is not developed to please you.

    I'm not totally sure on this but usually a Team has players doing different things. Like Art department, Game Mechanics and such. So if this team is set up like that then why do people always say these silly things about this is why that bug isn't fixed.

    Ummm, no. The reason nothing ever gets fixed is because no matter how they fix something half the people raise hell about it. And what's "important" to some is not important to others. Case in point the difference in size of the portals could be important to some, say for example anal retentive types or pixel collectors in general. While to you the latest gimplet of the month or the latest combo that puts PvP'ers down to fast is highly important, to others it doesn't make a damn if they ever fix it or not.

    I think you should practice what you preach here. It's not developed to please you either. Figure out how to combat the Nether Bolt/Eagle Strike... or change your temp to make use of the same deal... or give up PvP. No sense in busting the OP's balls (large or not) just because you are having issues with a few spells kickin your arse... K Thx :thumbup:

    I'm gonna venture a guess that you're one of the people using NB/ES.

    Never did I expect to visit Stratics, to discover a post about disproportionate balls.

    Nah, I gave up PvP until they figure out how to stop all the 3rd party crap. Which means forever it seems.

    No, its NOT developed to please just me, but I too am a paying customer.

    I take it that you have no balls. Well, my UO house has heavy traffic and I have mine out for public use.

    No, it isn't game breaking. Yes, I can't see it taking very long to change/ fix/ correct.

    This is a message board that provides a way to talk to the dev team and provide input and ideas. Fine, you want mysticism fixed? Great. Write a post asking them. All I wanted to know is if they could make the balls the same size, because it looks awkward when you see them together.

    Not game breaking. We are talking aesthetics here. That's all.

  18. assuming of course that they virtually exist ...

    Ok ok ok I have to do this and then I swear I'm done....

    But Canary would it not work if you dropped that bigger ball in some ice cold water? I hear that causes shrinkage.

    No sense taking dev time to fix that when you can do it yourself...

    But no seriously I think they would look much better if the other one was shrunk down to the size of the new one and they would fit better on a table. And I would prefer them being closer to the size of the snow globes.

    *sticks tongue out at Fayled Dhreams* If only you knew.

    But since canary is having issues snapping a pic, here's a shot of the ones I have in my rune library:

    Maybe one is coomon and one rare and there is a reason for different sizes?

    Probably done deliberately to idiot proof them. If there was no difference in sizes or a visible difference the idiots would stand at the wrong one hollering Luna mint and going nowhere. Which would lead to NUMEROUS GM pages saying it did not work. Which would further overwork the very "busy" GM staff. I mean hell, it's gotta be difficult to sit there all day sending canned responses right?

    I feel compelled to point out....

    Not only is one of his balls larger than the other...one also looks Blue.

    Could be a bad sign. Maybe not. Maybe it is as intended. Or maybe it's my color blindness.

    As long as it isn't too neon, then, when he puts his balls out in his public house, they could at least match somewhat.

    Little Blue Balls...on public display.

    :thumbsup:
