We are more than good here.
Apologies for the delay ... been doing some blocking and tackling on other things.
Trying to get an update letter out to you guys today.
Wish me luck!
Just so you know, new content and fixing core game bugs is not done by the same person. If I stopped doing new content, I would just be fired and the things you pointed out would get done at the same pace they are getting done now.
We do have people working on those other problems, those problems are just hard to squash... especially when they involve changing core functionality of the game. Sometimes we create a fix for something and it breaks something that seemed completely unrelated. It's just the reality of digging into 12 years worth of code. I apologize that some people have found ways to cheat at UO, we will continue to try to stop them. I have always been baffled by the cheater mentality... is Chess still Chess if my side is set up normally and you set up your side with nothing but queens? How can you say you won? How can you say we were even playing Chess?
On the other hand, every time we put out new content people come out and play... so excuse me, but I'm going to continue to put in new content.
hey guys ... I didn't make it through the gauntlet to get out an update today.
I will try try to get something to you guys early next week.
Also, expect fiction when we go Live on Tuesday.
We watch the boards in both places ...
A long while back, this topic came up. And, yes, Housing was a significant hurdle. Mainly because a LOT of players have created and decorated their houses with optical illusions by combining and hueing various types of tiles (I've seen impressive fish tanks, and baby grand pianos) and a conversion to 3d would just destroy all that. 2D optical illusions no longer work in a 3D environment.
Well, those items aside, there were tons of "creative architecture" that looked terrific, but would get completely blown away by switching to 3D.
Mind you, this wasn't necessarily a deterrent, but it was something that was going to be a hurdle.
