One of my favorite UO moments is when they cover the world in snow! Any news on snow coming?
I hope the Devs make it white.
Me, too. I loved the way it looked last year.
Bad enough we will all be hammered by the real stuff this season, all over the USA and CAN, I'm sure. In my part of the world, 3 major snow storms have already killed any kind of holiday mood. The last, the snow is still on the ground... 3 weeks later.
I sure dont want to recall in to my houses in Yew and see the fake stuff that makes my real blood cold.
You want snow? Visit Artic Island and hold some ice cubes in both hands.
I like to see it falling, however it makes the in-game map totally useless, that's how I remember overland Ilsh being last time (just one big white-out).
I like the winter deco the Devs do.
<Sings merrily> Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...
I suppose I'd feel the same way if I lived in the north, but here on the gulf coast snow is a foreign substance. Although I love it in UO and on Christmas cards, I'm happy not to have to live in it in RL.
I enjoy the snow.
Sure it can make things somewhat inconvenient... but honestly doesn't real snow do that too?
I like it... makes the world look all new fresh and exciting. What would be REAL fun would be if they could add some random spawning icy patches too...
Could you imagine running through fel and then Whooops slipping on an icy patch and falling off your mount! *laughs*
Could be fun!
Falling snow AND snow on the ground please!!! I love being in my cottage deep in the forest of Yew with the snow covered ground, icicles, twinkling holiday fireflies, sparkly tree and now Santa Ho Ho Ho-ing!! *smiles*
I like snow in UO so I'll vote yes. I hate snow in RL, which is why I live in California.
On a related 'tis the season note, isn't it time for turkeys to go away? They're boring to fight and played out so I wouldn't be disappointed if they went away forever and got replaced by something new next Thanksgiving.
there is always snow at my house.. and its always raining..
On 12/01/11, Mesanna said (this thread) in they would be turning on snow "next week."
The latest bug-fix publish is probably what is holding things up...
Grinch me will you?
Did I say anything about stealing Christmas? Or have I been supporting the gifts and events for many-many years? Santa events at my mall? Tricked out decor in UO? The nicest lit house in the real life neighborhod I live in? You cant see it... but it's very nice.
NO SNOW = NO SNOW.
See how they feel about not getting snow for Christmas in Hawaii.
Now, I could have been mean and said “Put ice cubes in your shorts” but I didn’t. That’s really controlling my pixie powers!
Ideal Christmases involve going outside and rapping lights around the ole palm trees... in my dream world.
Yes please lots of snow! I have the white stuff where I live and its sometimes annoying but also pretty between the storms. In UO its just pretty and I find treasure maps easier with snow!
I vote for global warming!
I hear there is snow in the forecast for either tonight or tomorrow!
My standard response to this is "What is that snow thing everyone talks about?"
Besides, it's summer, and thus it should be warm and not cold. ;P
Good news! Thanks!
Thank you Mesanna! I love snow in UO. I do hate snow in RL.
Snow is in.. Patch your clients (no Herald announcement yet).
I really wish they would use the code from about 4-5 years ago which hued the leaves on the trees white and replaced the grass fronds and such with piles of snow (minus the ruberbanding issues that caused).
god i hope they don't add the snow =(
go to ice isle if u wanna see the stuff, on green land its such an eye sore.
edit... too late evidentally
Yeah, there are tweaks I would want to see in terms of the snow-based map (i.e. no leaves on non-conifer tree models), but as of right now it's the closest we have to actual "seasons" in the game, so it makes me happy to see it each year.
Well crap, I seriously can't even play the damn game when everything is white thanks to the migraines it gives me. Is there a toggle in the classic client to turn the crap off or a line I can add to the config file to disable it? Can we for once pretend Sosaria is in the South Pacific and have a green Xmas?
Aww another year of a Snowless Zento.. I miss the time it was snowy there too!
Minoc looks great with all the snow.
I never saw this before.
Very cool devs.
ya know... Luna could use some Holiday Cheer as well...>.>
How about burning it to the ground? That would CHEER meeeeeeeeee up!
Bleh. I guess I'll wait three or four months for them to remove the hideous snow that causes rubberbanding and hides objects that completely block movement.
Good god you lot sure can whinge and moan.... make it an olympic sport and there are some contenders for Gold in here.
Its just a bit of color change on the UO map stop moaning and enjoy the festive season. Heck if you are real lucky the EM's have been seen putting up trees in Luna
I'm so happy you apparently have excellent vision. I have diabetes since birth and poor eyesight thanks to it, hence the reason I asked for a toggle or a line to add or remove this blinding white mess. If that's moaning and whining in your book I feel sorry for you.
Change the brightness on your pc. And what do you do IRL?
Snow is a fact of life. I happen to like it... even when I'm trying to tame Unicorns and I can't hardly see them as they totally blend in now.
This is the part that makes it a whine.
"The snow is hard on my eyes. Please add a toggle to make it optional."
Gets the same point across without insulting the people that have done something with good intentions for us to enjoy.
I do not have excellent vision, however a bit of white on the ground in UO isn't a problem. Web pages generally have a whole lot more white as do things like Excel and word documents....As said by someone else you come across as whiney when you go from a genuine reason to not like the snow to "this blinding white mess"
Well said MalagAste
Again well said Njjj
So besides snow............................. anything else going on like events or special xmas deco loot?
Just curious so I may sneak in a little UO time even though the holiday busy time has started for me. Guild Wars time is already set in time for me since there season started yesterday
* runny mouth *
Awesome! Nice one.
Just did some checking around, the snow is not near as extreme as has been in the past - Thank You Devs for the change. We got snow, not the DQ blizzard
