As many of you know there has been five clients that run UO now and soon to be a 6th 2d, 3d, Iris1, Iris2, KR, and soon SA... Its very obvious that more then 50% of the community use 2d, and it also obvious that it looks terrible. After a few years the 3d client came along with the promise of a new way to play the game. However the title 3d should have been enhanced 2d because the only thing 3d about it was the character models and fluid animations. At some point in developing the 3d Client EA made the UO source code freely available allowing a team of elite fans to create The Iris client. (http://www.iris2.de/index.php/Team) This client was never acknowledged, but it was a true 3d game. Using just a lot of the 3d clients resources for characters models. Latter along the line EA got the idea of making a brand new HD client. KR was rushed out of the door and most of its high end HD art was scrapped so people could enjoy it on low end machines. Now we are up to present day time, EA promises they focus has been on game design, game balance, testing, focus groups, Events, content. I know what its like working your butt off making promisies you know you cant keep, but at some point you have to stop and look at the bigger picture. Is SA going to work for us? I bring this up now because I noticed with the new Content pictures posted for the SA web page (http://www.uoherald.com/stygianabyss/) It looks 99% KR with a new name. I don't suppose crying about how terrible the KR targeting system, any minor glitches will fix them, but If I at least point out the obvious no one is going to be dumb founded saying, "Why didn't anyone tell us it was broken." My vote for best client will always go to 3d, modding the monsters textures with Photo shop was the best part.
