    In a recent update on the development of un-released Mortal Online, they describe their flagging system..


    http://www.mortalonline.com/combat/flagging

    If this sounds offly familiar, it is the same exact flagging system UO uses! So now we have a game that we can finally call a UO clone rather than a WoW clone(not a bad thing.) Richard Garriot must secretly work for this company..

    I dunno, its a pretty simple system. And somehow I doubt it tries to be like UO in many other ways.

    okay. and since there aren't many other options for a semi-open-pvp game, what else do you propose they do?

    UO had it right from the beginning.

    that's like saying that honda copied frod because their cars have 4 wheels pushed by a driveshaft that's connected to a transmission, etc, etc...

    but give this other game props for not trying to re-invent the wheel.

    Well in Darkfall online we're going to have a alignment system where everyone starts out with a neutral alignment, turning evil is easy but does not make for an easy life, killing people will get us there fast and will make most guards, clans and other players attack us on sight.. In Darkfall it is similar to UO but I believe alignment system is different the way they do it because there is racial alignment..

    The developers are old UO players that's trying to create a game that has the same feeling UO had when it was good. They dont try to hide it either.
    As it continues to develop im pretty sure alot of things will be reminding of UO. Old UO anyway.

    All you can do is hope they succeed better than EA.
