    You could... *melts*

    Hnghh... you could...

    turn down the brightness of the snow... like /tell "uodevs" hey guys can you make white less white. Of course they can, but they'll shy out again cause the genius programmer who managed to program an AI that learned english in a few months, is gone ; who knows where.

    *makes sweet eyes*

    Who is Nystul ? We know who's lord Brittish... does anyone know ?

    Who ressucitated him ?

    Who humiliated him ?

    I pledge the community to PUSH HARDER for truth...

    This is incredible evil that everyone is ignoring and not minding about "oh it's just a game"

    sorry I don't mean to be rambling but... why did the snow have to be ULTRA WHITE...

    thats so true I mean there's white and the kind of white you like to see on a screen, have none of them play the game with a LCD yet ?

    2010 !

    Ok I stop rolleyes:

    Good. :dunce:


    I hope they do let the snow fall. I like it,adds a little more to the game. I have an LCD and its not that bright to me. As far as that goes.... I`ve never seen brown or off white snow falling....ever. I see no need to "make the white less white" since it pretty much mirrors RL snow....which is pretty damned white.

    I know snow since I`m lookin at about 3 feet of it with more on the way with this huge storm moving across 3-4 states. :bs:

    *stomps off to grab the snow shovel* :D

    It can be pretty white without being ultra white, some silvery white is much more pleasing on a screen...

    Why should it snow according to our winter if it never snows at predictable points in the in-game calendar?

    Well, it COULD be that the UO shards are all worlds that have their poles tilted at a different degree than our earth's 23 degrees. I believe if the angle was tighter (like 10) then they'd have longer winters and summers, which would reflect in our game play.

    There, problem solved.

    I need my winter wonderland.

    However, I do think the winter weather should have impacts -- everything should have a penalty for anything dexterity related while out in the cold and ice (which I think should apply to all "cold" areas.)

    But that would be realistic and all, so not likely to happen.

    :pint:
     
  23. Its been snowed for almost 3 days in Colorado, combined with below freezing temps, so I feel for those getting the snow now :(
    BUT when it comes to game snow, it was just too bright to look at when pvping at the yew gate for a few hours at a time OR while running around anywhere... it was just too much =/

    Bah! I say to all you Bah Humbuggers! One thing I love this time of year is the snow... and how it changes the whole scenery into something special...

    I am in the midst of a snowstorm/blizzard and I still love to see the snow... guess that's the little kid in me but I love the magical UO snow.... and I want the snow

    You can "Down Under". They traditionally hit the beach at this time of year, and barbeque christmas lunch. I don't celebrate christmas so it hardly affects me, but I can't abide the beach in the summertime.. very harsh.
