    Actually, I think this bit of snow's been here about 3 years now?

    Could we get Draconi's blow torch on it? It seems to be a bit stubborn.

    Wouldn't that be from some event then? And does a little bit of snow from an event at a tavern that almost nobody ever even goes to really affect your game enough to warrant it being removed?

    no, I guess not. I guess I also forgot all the smilies I should have put on to show this was meant to be a bit of light hearted teasing, not to be taken seriously. I thought the title showed it. Obviously I was wrong. Sorry.

    When summer rolls around, can we get the beaches decorated with women in bikinis?

    I enjoyed it for a bit, but am thankful it is gone! Same goes for the real world. I would think maybe 2 months worth in December and January would be a better fit. I see enough of it out my window, I don't need to see it in Ultima.

    I also agree that it hurt my eyes, but wouldn't mind the bikini girls come summer as a compromise!

    haha.

    Of course, knowing Draconi, all those girls gone wild would be paragon succubi.

    Hey, UO snow was very nearly the only snow I saw this year... hell, it WAS the first snow I've seen in what, eight years?

    I say leave the snow for a few more months!

  20. That's snow? I just thought they had ran out of dishwasher detergent and tried using the regular kind! :D

    (Do not try that at home! I did...and that pic above says it all.)

    I would vote for removing horses.
    On the other hand, maybe exactly this bit of snow will mess up SA client in the future?

    Not too sure you want him using a blow torch on it.

    Unless you want the whole building burnt to the ground. :D

    I can understand the flip side, living in a more tropical climate, etc. would be nice to get some virtual snow time, but it still makes my eyes hurt if I'm chopping wood for an hour. I guess I need to take the recommended 15 minute breaks, as the white glare of the monitor was overwhelming at times.

    And why not have the southern section snowy during the opposite time of year as the north?

    I do think having a spring time with flowering trees, etc, and a fall with colorful leaves would make UO a more ever-changing, evolving, world.

    I think you are right and we'll get Succubus spawn, but is that a bad thing?

    Um... it's a tavern. It's white. There are those who make money doing questionable things. Who says it's snow?


    heh heh


    I'd really like it if they made the seasons work in UO time. We should get winter every month for a week.

    *sigh*

    That would actually be kinda cool. Would it give us a virtual counter to global warming? Would the sea levels rise? Scary stuff.

    You're never bloody satisfied, are you.

    Hush.
     
  31. Why not have it removed. Is having it there that important to you that it should remain just because you want it too?:lick:
