    Any chance of getting obsidian (black) housing tiles in the future? We have the crystal blue and white marble. Sleek solid black walls and floors would be a nice addition.

    Can the Spellweaving timer be changed from Real Time to Character Time in game? As a rule you can only get a 5 person focus in the evening which runs out by morning, leaving Spellweaving useless in the morning, afternoon, and early evening hours.

    How about an actual system of communication in game, i.e. in-game messaging that every other MMORPG out there has. Not the house mailboxes that are tied to physical things being dropped in a mailbox at a house, but like the notifications we get from New Magincia stuff.

    As others said, this is something that would help new players and present-day players.

    Can we get a way to "alter" every piece of gear so we can have a custom outfit? Something like cosmetics i mean. I'm pretty tired of wearing deer's horns because I need the +20 Archery of it for my template.

    Can we please get the Conjurer's items reintroduced to the game for those that missed Halloween events of years past? Those are staple items in many suits and now are exceedingly overpriced due to the fact that no new ones are dropping.

    Would be possible to introduce a permanent Treasures of Tokuno like system where we can turn in 10 artifacts for one of our choice? There could be separate systems for ML, SA, AOS, HS, and anti-virtue/champ spawn drops.

    How are you addressing the impact of population variance affecting gameplay?

    For example, on some shards it is nearly impossible to get a SW focus due to so few players. Same with some bosses. They appear to be designed to be non-soloable, but there is many times no one to fight together with. And then on some shards there are always other people. Do you have a way to balance this issue without forcing us to migrate to the big shards and then to use a transfer token to move items back to the smaller population shards.

    Can we get new recipes added to the game to make better use of peerless reagents? Many of the current craftable artifacts are outdated and there is not enough use for common peerless reagents such as muculent. UOSA peerless also drop unique peerless reagents such as the claw of the slasher of veils and the stygian dragon head which can be incorporated into new craftable recipes.

    Can we get the ability to imbue clothing (robe, cloak, sash, shoes, aprons and garg equivalent of each) with a maximum of 50 imbuing intensity? This creates a mid-range alternative to non-magical items and the elite artifacts (i.e. Crimson Cincture, Conjurer's Garb, etc).

    Since the code has been written to give a larger CC game window, can we see the increased size results for 1920x1080 or so on a test center setup? If the resulting graphics are no worse than the EC currently has, the larger game screen option for the CC would be worth it. Most polls show around half of UO's customers still prefer the CC and may well appreciate having the option even with lower quality graphics.

    Question to ask them, to help with a gold sink would they ever think to perhaps to have a House spot that us players could rent for 1 week so say perhaps we can redecorate a house or orginaze your house but need storage space to do it

    Can we get an update to pirate and merchant ships? These are great fun to hunt but not worth the cost of ammunition with the current loot. Can we add more item variety and crew difficulty to these ships? It would be great to have a random chance of getting a ship full of imbuing ingredients or a complete dud filled with fruits and vegetables.

    Are the high seas ships going to be changed similar to houses so that in pvp an aggressor can not flee on to those, just like they can't in houses.

    Also would about people being an aggressor from a house, is there any talk of making it so you would get ejected.
