Just read an interesting news article on the BBC New Website. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7262202.stm It's about Peter Molyneux a long time game developer. Please, I don't want this to be mistaken as a dig at UO but the article made a few good points from Peter Molyneux that could be applied to UO as well. Such as: "For a long time ... I mistook adding complexity for being a good thing," he says. "In actual fact I kept adding new features and new features to a game when I should have been fixing something deep down in the guts of the game that was slightly wrong." And: "What I feel more and more as I get more and more experienced is that if I can make something really simple, give gamers a highly-polished experience, then I have succeeded. "A lot of the time it is making things simpler but much, much richer." I hope that the development team is keeping things like this in mind... work the guts of the game first then add new stuff. And the KISS motto (Keep It Simple, i'm Stupid). Just a good article and hope it's of value.
