Ok, some feedback based on my first looks at the new UI. First off, I have to say that I've been playing the EC for I think four or five years now, and at least the last two years have been with Pinco's UI. Pinco's UI has become part of my game, and the new default UI has taken some of that away. So I'll be honest, I wasn't looking forward to the new UI. It means redoing all my desktops and such, and that means a lot of work. So first off, the look. It's different. I liked my dark stone mini-template. But it looks fine, and it isn't the end of the world. Second, it looks like migrating to the new default UI isn't going to be horribly painful, and might not screw up my game play too much. I'm not redoing from scratch. I'm using the old character xml files, and I realize a fair bit of the data in there is now just worthless clutter. If Pinco doesn't provide a way to clean up the UI, I will probably go into the xml files myself and do some house cleaning. I wouldn't recommend this to your average player. You might end up making a serious mess and having to start over from scratch. However, there is one HUGE plus that I noticed right away. Pinco's UI had performance issues. The new default UI does not appear to have any performance issues. I'll have to see what happens when I pvp or run through Luna, but so far this is the smoothest game play I have ever seen in any UO client, ever.
