    .....is supposed to look like this

    The other buildings are farmhouses...don't forget the sheep!

    Old Magincia was destroyed by PRIDE, and Katrina the humble shepherd being the only survivor. It was supposed to be resurrected as a city bearing the very essence of HUMILITY.

    Somehow a player house lottery doesn't seem very humble to me..

    Is it my imagination or does everything from the weavers south look like a very fair representation of the layout of old Haven?

    Looking at the map of ocllo i can see slight resemblance, i guess it's possible the humble fishing village was somewhat based off new Magincia. (Ocllo/haven don't exist in any of the Ultima series except UO). I think haven was built a little differently but I don't really remember, I'd only been in it once or twice before.

    I hope if they do have this "player lottery" it's for the farmhouses and they are not editable (specially designed "classic" houses, if dropped cannot be replaced)
     
  6. This is how I see New Magincia

    Since the map in his image looks to be from Sim City, I'll stick with my theory and you stick to yours.

    You're all wrong; nothing says "Humility" like growing flowers just so you can have your name upon them, whilst forcing everyone around to enjoy their neon colours! Which is why you'd never catch the Bane... corrupting... Virtue... with... named... sigh. Damn it Devs. Ok, you may not have grasped classic Ultima history, but really, being ignorant of what you've just done in your own fiction leading up to this moment?!

    I'm sorry for the harshness, but I can't describe any other way how disappointed I was when I saw the final plans for Magincia... especially as I can't even opt out of them. I'm entered into the shameful raffle whether I want to be or not. Right now my emotional response is if I get the ticket for the house, I want to walk into the town square and destroy it in an act of public Humility. Making Gold directly off the Virtues is spitting on the entire point of Ultima Lore... at least Luna never pretended to be anything other than Mamon's Malas Mistress!

    And it would have taken just a few seconds to come up with a theme that fitted, even one that took gold out of the players pockets; How about a city of dedicated NPCs you can give away your gold too, anonymously which keep a "Shroud of Bane's Ghost" (because he's dead but his corrupting influence lives on yadda yadda) or something from darkening the city visually but gave no other material reward...? Or even just an encroaching swamp, like in Ultima IV Magincia, kept at bay by the quiet work of it's people?

    But no... Housing again. And named flowers. HNNNNGHHHH!
