It Has Breasts... On Its Shoulders...

    Can... uh... It's fairly rare that something UO makes me relatively speechless, but...

    The Boura mount...

    Did I miss something, or did Boura shrink, lose their detail, get scared by a severe ghost making them more pale than Powder, and, uh, grow a pair of breasts on their shoulders?

    I mean... when I heard of the Boura mount, I thought, "Well, okay, not my cup of tea, but it could look cool."

    I've sort of been reduced to "Well, okay, not my cup of tea."

    There's something fundamentally wrong with the artwork... it just doesn't look much like a boura at all, and the armor is missing something (and has too much of other things).

    Not the best work I've seen...

    First off ... where have you been? We've been posting pics of the mount all over. It's been available on Test Center for a long time. Second, if you're going to start a thread with the word "breasts" in it, and there are no pictures for, ahem, comparative purposes, for shame! :p

    I'll have to dig up an old post I made, but basically, the problem is if EA mounted a regular boura then you couldn't go through doors.

    I blame it on Madonna.

    Make some circular protective gear with leather straps, add on a spike, and the first thing some folks think of are bras :D

    Oh, I could so comment.. But, alas, I will leave this particular gem for Ra :lol:

    The ethy boura does look like it was caught rummaging in one of Madona's more entertaining closets...

    In order to see Madonna's bras on the bourra ethy you must have been in a monastery for quite a few years... :bored:

    With so much of the other recent art it just doesn't fit with the rest of the game; rugs anyone?

    There needs to be someone on the dev team who has been around a while to stop the art team and say no sometimes.

    The game art hasn't fit the game era for years, not just the past few weeks.

    Sorry. :)

    I saw "recent" and I thought recent would be closer to weeks, not years.

    I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but it's hard to think that UO art has been on the better side of awful for a LONG time...

    You are right of course. I like to dally in Ocllo and Delucia as they still resemble the times when UO had sighted artists working on it.

    Alas, I fear I wouldn't know the difference between boura breasts, bovine breasts, chicken breasts, or the real thing... I don't bat for that particular team even when I'm not playing UO. ;)

    There, Martyna, are you happy now? *snicker*

    That's the problem with people today, they don't even know what they eat.

    Hehe well ... I was just being silly :). To me, the boura just has spikes ;P ... but I agree in that, when I first saw the ethy model, I asked "why?" So I'm on board for half of the criticism, considering the odd white hue which, I assume, is best described as a "baby" boura, or something along those lines? :p ... but yeah, the reason they made a new model is because the current boura was too "tall" on the z-axis.

    I posted a link to pictures, earlier in the thread ;P.
