  1. Just wondering why UO chose to stay with a grid based system for all of its years :D

    Maybe it's just like that really nice haircut you like. Go with it for so long you just don't want to change it :p

    Do you have an example of a live game that has switched? Seems to me that a grid, once created, is quite literally the foundation of the game.

    Grid-based games have much simpler collision detection, and it's very hard to change something from grid-based to free-form.
