    Thank you to the dev/devs who took the time to put snow in. I haven't been back in a couple of years so this is new to me. I love it. I haven't been this excited since that hippie GrimmOmmen gave us the KR client.

    With all my eternal gratitude,

    Koris.

    ...

    Now they need to do a "Spring" and a "Fall" map and set Publish schedules for them and give the game a full seasonal environment system.

    Erm.. Not so much amazing.. IMHO its way too blue.

    The clashing plants/grass and tree tops don't do much for the ambiance either.

    They did winter far better a few years ago when they had white-hued foliage and changed the small plants to mounds of snow.

    That would bloody well rock! I would be overly super happy if they ever did that!

    Infact if they did things really right.... the "fall" would automatically bring the "Turkeys"... Perhaps there should be change in spawns of other creatures/monsters as well

    Winter should automatically let you set up your Chrismas Tree....

    Spring should give some boost to plant growth... and should bring perhaps colored rabbits...

    Summer should change monster spawns too.

    When something is done well and right, yes.

    This, however, was not done well, or right.

    The last post was the EC, yes. It was also raining. Been raining in Yew non-stop for 4 years now.

    This is the same spot in the CC:

    Similar, but not quite as garish.

    the second picture is a perfect example of how ridiculous the CC looks on a modern screen. :p

    And yes, this years snow does look a bit like nuclear winter in the EC.

    It is a little too blue in EC but looks fine to me. Then again, I don't really play EC much, unless there is a significant change like snow! lol

    One thing I don't understand is why they can't make all the tiles snow, but, it looks odd enough to have the land outside of the beach covered with snow.

    I think the snow looks fine. However, do all plants in UO now have an anti-snow force field? How did all that snow get to the ground without getting on the plants and trees?

    Zento is within an area defined as semi-tropical to tropical. Thusly no adverse weather conditions should exist in that lush and green environment.

    Really?

    I certainly wish the DEV's would turn down the rain in Yew.... I feel like I'm in the tropics or something....

    I haven't played in quite a while, but looking at this thread, I remembered how damn near identical the two clients are in graphics. What the hell.

    I hate snow personally altou im from Sweden. But the snow we get in game is just a pain for the eyes. Sure we will get used to it but still enough is enough. I want to see fires instead lets burn luna down have a BBQ and chill with a :pint:

    I wish the Devs would make random slick spots spawn when it rains, and icy patches appear when it snows & stuff - That'd be realistic

    That's just yew attempting to turn itself back into a swamp in hopes of getting rid of the elves once again.

    The snow is probably rather counter-intuitive on Oceania. It's almost summer-time there now.
