    there is a new game that looks like it's FINALLY doing what others have failed when they promised a sandbox we all love and miss (pre AoS).

    The name may be a bit misleading, but just take two seconds to look at the front page:

    Greed Monger - A Crafting focused MMORPG

    what's that? Skills, player homes, RARES market? hrrrrrm :)

    I hope that actual customizeable houses are on the table at some point in the games life. I can fully understand not from launch or even in the first 6-8 months but perhaps a year or 2 down the line after it launches they'll have managed to find someway to make customized housing a reality in that tasty looking 3D environment. Oh, and being able to put a gate around your place, whether it be wooden stone, barred etc. Ok I'll scurry off and leave this topic alone for now.. But I'll be back!

    This is what I got from their kick starter page:

    Of course! If you can craft it, you can place it in your house for all to see.

    Update 34:

    Housing Models and System

    .."Vincent Foster has devised a system that will enable players to create their own floor plans for housing and other buildings through an in game editor. It will take what resources you have available along with your skill, and display modules you can build to construct your house or building."

    UO will always be unique. The thing is if players are looking for a better UO you wont find it. Same for players looking for the better WoW. Not going to find it. Each game has its pros and cons and that is many mnay titles out there. I prefer great graphics and great content which are out there. Some prefer lesser graphics and great content. Each his own I guess.

    If a player wants to find a better game that is like the game they are playing they are better off staying with the original game. I am impressed with the video above but the issue with most of UO player base they "prefer" the 2d client and not all the fancy newer graphics. No matter how sandboxxy a game can be if it does not have that 2d client it just doesn't float with the community. Now I disagree since I prefer better graphics lol but that is the bottom line when it comes tothe majority that loves UO.

    I would love to see a brand new true UO2 with updated graphics in the future. Just do it while I am still young and all :)
