Why can't UO have a client like U5 Lazarus?

    I have always liked the look of the 3d client uo5 Lazarus. If EA could make a client like that that i really think they could jumpstart this game!!

    I think EA making yet another client is a bad idea, Unless they can supply new content at the same time, Which I dont think they can.

    I think Mythic could take the KR client, make some drastic improvements to it, and move forward. They don't have the manpower to support it anymore, and so we're stuck in the old 2D/3D thing we had awhile back.

    Comes down to this: They expected people to embrace KR, but instead of listening the playerbase, they made certain decisions, and then EA came stomping in and said, "Okay, it's about time you release this thing that you've been working on," and as usual, they released it buggy and incomplete. And since the playerbase didn't go, "Yes, let me use the buggy, incomplete client," they're now saying, "Well, the playerbase didn't adopt it, we shouldn't spend much time on fixing it."

    And so we're largely stuck.

    i expect,that after warhammer release, 30-40% off uo player will change to warhammer, and
    uo will no longer be atractive for ea-mythic, but the fact uo is 11 years on market, they will not terminate uo, maybe uo change to a opensource game.

    i dont beleave that in the long term uo can get any counting amount of new player
    so, making uo for free and opensource will be the last and only way to save uo

    They are still in the process of making a client which is in beta and you want them to make another one?

    how do you figure 30-40 percent? especially considering no one knows how many people are playing UO.

    Ultima 5 Lazarus is a modified Dungeon Siege game. Secondly, the devs listening to the palyerbase is what has us in this mess to begin with. To say the devs don't listen to the playerbase is quite narrowminded.

    Uhh, last I checked, you can get the old 2d bag and most of the interface. If you want to dump the task bar well, can't help you there.

    Because u5 lazarus is garbage. It is nothing more than a huge dungeon siege mod and a buggy one at that. The graphics are not great and the game play is terrible. KR is actually better than that mod if you ask me.
