    High Level Focus:

    "We are centering many decisions this year around improving the Enhanced Client (removing the Beta Tag); increasing the frequency of small developer-lead events; and improving the transition of new and returning players to Ultima Online.

    First step for the art resolution pass is to assess what we have and how best to use current art assets. In the near term we plan to update the terrain to a higher resolution. Following how our first pass works, we will move on to other elements.

    We feel a slow iterative approach is best when dealing with the client, and will also insure players are not downloading massive art updates each time you log in.

    Understand, this does not mean we are abandoning the Classic Client. A dominant number of players still use the Classic Client. However, that intrepid Beta tag is a bit glaring, and we’d like to get the EC to an acceptable state which will allow us to remove it. Along with stability, we would like a better bit of “polish” for its appearance, and how players interact and view the gameworld"


    This was taken from the Producers update and thought This part needed posting for us who us the EC! Good news all around I think!

    With this in mind I wanted to say I think this is going to herald new and positive things for The EC and this forum!
    So with that said I am going to be watching posts very close negative posts that are NOT helping to further both of these things will be removed swiftly!
    This does not mean you can not report negative things it just means you need to be constructive about the way its done!
    I wanted to get this out there as fair warning to all because I have a feeling we will be seeing new posters here and new converts to the EC!

    Thank you
    Storm

    There is an easy three-step guide in my sig for anyone who wants the EC to look as sharp and clear as the CC. It is NOT the old play window resizing trick, but a new trick I discovered. You can use any size play window you want (even a fully expanded play window on a huge monitor). It takes almost no effort, poses no risks, and I'm already hearing that it works for other people. Something to hold us over until Cal and his team bump up the resolution. :)
