Just curious about some art differences between shards

    OK,its like 6 AM here,LS is down for server maintenance so I figured I`d log into a more populated server.I chose Atlantic since I`m closer to it than Pac. After walking around and eventually makin it to WBB I was quite suprised when my tired eyes gazed upon the glory that is WBB/Atlantic. All I can say it WTH? I mean a gate right there next to the bank,a great looking/well designed area.Looks great,looks like a place peaple would LOVE to hang out at.Even if most didn`t,I sure would.

    I`m just wondering why the differences? Is it just because theres more peaple to please on Atlantic? LS is lower pop so it gets the same ole tired theme? I just assumed it was just the oversea`s servers that had decked out WBB area`s. Just took me by suprise to see it on Atlantic too.

    I must assume theres other great looking redisigns elsewhere.I just took a quick walk during server maint and was suprised. Don`t get me wrong I`m not whining/wanting what everyone else has,I`m moreso just wondering why one shard gets some nice decor in populous area`s while others....not so much.

    Every shard had a bank design contest. Its being done in the devs (can't remember who) free time, so as you can imagine, is taking a while with all the EXP work they've been doing.

    Eventually, all shards will have the bank done.

    Ahhhhh gotcha,a contest.Must have happened during my last break from UO. All I can say is it looks frickin great hehe. I can only hope that the looks of Atlantic (or something close) makes an appearance on LS. Very nice addition to a commonly used area. Would go a long way in promoting the community thing IMO.

    BTW,I hafta ask...if it was a contest,did some shards just not enter? Or did someone just think that a lone Guillotine on LS would suffice as decor,hehe.

    It's Draconi's personal gift, and he seems to be working through the shards in alphabetical order. I think he's been a bit busy with SA lately. :)

    I'm sure I saw the winning design of every bank somewhere but I just looked for it and I can't find it.

    Maybe someone else can help.
