So.. figured i'd wait until the real Stratics forums came back, but i've gotten impatient. Back at the townhall I asked a question, and Draconi said that it would be better to give Jeremy a message to pass on to GrimmOmen since Draconi wasn't an artist. I always feel bad about bugging Jeremy (or anyone) with PM's tho, rather i'd make posts and let them respond at their own pace, and let everyone see the answer. So, what was my question? Basically, I asked about the clothing and weapons and such that have been sitting around for years with little more than an icon and stats, that used to have models in 3D but have since vanished (something i've asked several times over the years, hence me calling it my "perpetual question"). We were lucky enough to at least get the Winged Helm from these, as well as a few SE clothing pieces, but there's still a LOT just sitting there. For anyone that has no idea what i'm talking about, here's a picture: The Beekeeper's hat is from before UO3D and was promised but never finished (the name in the data changed to "jester's cap" somewhere along the line as well). I'm gonna guess it has to do with layering that it wasn't? That I can understand. The checkered surcoat is listed as a "checkered shirt", but obviously is a surcoat.. I think it used to have paperdoll art as well? (Might be remembering wrong there tho). And, obviously, the Kimono and No-Dachi we got with SE, but I prefered the 3D designs for both, and the No-Dachi icon itself is still better than the one from SE that's in use.. maybe use the 3D one instead? Now then.. for those that don't know, this stuff was all a part of UO3D way back when, but was all disabled before the beta ended.. I think I remember the devs claiming it was for "compatibility reasons"? Long asked for clothing, new armors and weapons, and a large set of rare drop weapons coming from the monsters they're named after. The ophidian invasion was the perfect time to make use of the Ophidian ones, but they could still assign the graphics to those items if they're finished. So.. the question remains.. what's gonna be done with all of this? I know it would all require new art and would take a while, but i'd still at least like to see the Monster Weapons restored, as well as the jester stuff and robin hood cap (both stuff people begged for years ago)... we got any chance, Grimm? Be glad i'm not asking for the unfinished monsters too, but there's always time for that later... (Mushroom Men, Seahorses, and Great Wurms! Oh my! Plus that freaky 2D sea monster that would make a perfect Leviathan even now). Also, as a bit of trivia, i'm sure people that keep up with exploits and odd items recognize one of the "magic staff"s from that 2 day or so period where players could make themselves Chyloth years ago. If you didn't know where it came from then, you do now. Honestly, I wouldn't be suprised at all to hear he still has the thing equipped even now, and we just can't see it becuase 3D is gone.
