    there is really only 1 think that has pissed me off for the last 16 years.
    why in CC you cannot have both status bars and status gui open at the same time.
    would also be nice to have a weight indicator that perhaps turns red when overweight such as 450/501
    have it hovering by your status bar for easy reference.

    why why ... why UO has never given us this?? why ... you may say uoassist but I am asking why "UO" hasnt done this for us

    let me also say that even if they made it a purchased upgrade at the UO store I would get it in a second and think it was the absolute best spent money in UO

    They did give these features to players, in the form of the EC. I am not trying to derail and turn this into an EC/CC debate, however the original plan was to eventually drop the CC (which that plan got scrapped). The current dev team is now left trying to enhance the CC so to speak since it isn't going to be trashed.

    My best guest would to ask for these features to be put in and maybe a dev will respond or add it to the Ask & Answers. I do feel bad for the current team as they were given something, told to improve it, when it was neglected for so long due to the plan to ax it.

    As for UOAssist, it was good back in the day. Nowadays, you can't beat the EC + Pinco's UI. Makes UOAssist look like a Prius to my Hummer :)

    The reason is UOA. Given that it is the only still supported "legal" third party UO program I suspect that the team decided to move on to other items and left UOA to cover it's share.

    I'd love to have scored that deal, I bet Tug made alot of coin over the years.

    How do you fill BODs with the EC? Is there a RECORD in the EC to repeat tasks? Glad you admitted that the EC is a big ugly gas hog. If it wasn't for Pinco and the other Modders you wouldn't be using the EC now would you?

    LD, I understand your question of thedev team, but if you are willing to pay EA an upgrade fee to fix this, why not just buy UOAssist? it is just a one time fee and would make you happier? Assist has cost me one dollar a year for the last 15 years of use damn good return on my investment if you ask me.

    Those numbers are prob low and just think Tug has supported this program for how many years even though I don't think anybody is buying it now.

    I'd be willing to bet that the number is closer to 350K((5.25 million $usd revenue) UOA subs sold if not much higher. If there weren't other options I'd be rolling three UOA accounts but as it stands only my main has it as the others don't need the assistance.

    Yeah, I hate having life bars drop when I add another. Makes it tough for large group cross healing.

    The status bars that turn to other names is a bit annoying as well..

    Also the messing up of the party bars when adding a new member that has been annoying for years

    Enhanced Client

    Health bars that lock together and move together as in CC (maybe there's an option I'm missing)

    Bars always seem to stay lit when off screen or doesn't change color enough to indicate that they are off screen..

    Fake mirror images when the character isn't even on screen anymore

    "Bars always seem to stay lit when off screen or doesn't change color enough to indicate that they are off screen.."
    this might be due to the larger viewable area that you might not currently be using.

    The new client is kind of slow. It's macros are especially laggy.

    While we are at it lets add how the bars get all "F'd" up when you add someone to the party or someone leaves the party.

    That is the kind of bug they should of fixed in the "bug fix" publish.
