Please give us snow covered lands again this year.

    I loved it when they made the grounds of Sosaria covered in snow two years ago. It really added immersion to the game, giving us a season other than permanent summer. I was sad to not see any snow last year. So please, have snow again this winter.

    While I wasn't among those who considered the rather indelicate and shallow art replacement "beautiful", as some passionately did, I would like to see seasonal snowfall.

    Also, in before "No snow this time of year in the Southern Hemisphere"
    I love you Oceanians ;)

    Actually.... PLS. DONT give us snow...
    It makes the ground buggy & I get stuck running around 10x as often which might be worth it if I thought snow looked any better but I don't.


    (You felt the need to share your opinion on wanting snow so I shared mine..)

    How did that effect things like needing certain terrain types for planting green thorns? Could you still find sand and grass and dirt... or was everything snow?

    Oh, it was fine, the server had no clue something was different. It was just a hack, er, I mean, modification, for the 2D client :)

    Snow covered lands was great. I'd like to see it done again this year.

    I was probably in the minority, but I really didn't like the snowcovered everything =P I was glad when it was gone.

    And it was like teasing me! It's 40+ here nearly every day in summer, and I log into UO, and there's all this snow (which while I have never seen any IRL, I know is cold) just TEASING me! Hee hee

    Would rather have seen alternate leaves for the trees with snow drawn on than the hideous white dyejob we got, honestly. Was still fun tho.

    I loved that it was the most beautiful feature!..... I would love to have the snow again!.... I am even in 2d and I didn't even mind so much the little bugs with the snow.... It was so beautiful that I just didn't care...

    Could you make a spring and fall too????

    Ditto. It would be nice to see the return of a snow covered Sosaria. :)

    I just loved the snow. It made Christmas feel ....... well so Christmassy. Here's my favourite pic of Father Christmas and his little Elves :

    Snow was a nice change for few weeks :)
     
  23. Oppurtunity

    Oppurtunity Guest

    I really appreciated it, and thought it was a wonderful change for a few weeks. It definitely made the Christmas season that year feel even more Christmassy, as someone said. I really thought it was a great thing the developers did, and I really was sad when it didn't happen last year.

    Please, give us snow. To those annoyed by it, it'll only last a few weeks and then it's gone for almost an entire year, if they turn it on this year and next. I really hope they do.

    They start earlier and earlier every year.
    LETS GET HALLOWEEN & THANKSGIVING OUT OF THE WAY FIRST!!!!!!!!!!


    I'm sorry, I needed to get that out. I got stuck behind a lady on my lunch break who was buying about 10,000 candy canes at the drugstore this afternoon.

    Snow would be cool (no pun intended), I missed it last time because I wasn't an active player at the time.

    Would be cool if snow worked the way it did in Ultima VII where you would get cold and take damage from it. At least until you put on fur boots/hat/and cloak.

    I would love to have snow this year! :heart:

    I wasn't playing 2 years ago when this happened, so I missed out. It would be great to enjoy it this season though!

    Was there snow in Tokuno last time? I just hate having a snow covered plot and green grass all around it. :(

    So what's the problem there? It's called realism. 9 months of snow? Sounds like a typical upstate NY winter to me.

    I believe they left it on till mid-March, which is pretty realistic. But yeah, I wouldn't do it that long this time. Early or mid February, maybe, put out a patch to turn it off.

    I rreeaaalllyy want snow again this year.

    In protest against global warming, I'd say turn on the snow in late December and turn it off in mid February (Following the past few years of reality in the midwest)

    YES!

    The game should have more dynamic content in general. Red leaved trees in autumn. Snow in winter. Weather effects in general. It adds a lot to the gaming experience.

    Thank you so much, devs and any one else that had a hand in making this occur. I love it, and so do a lot of my friends. I hope this is an every year occurrence from now on!
