    This is something that has bothered me for years. What I wouldn't give to be able to go around my home of GL's and fix all those annoying missing tiles, grass, etc..... that have been wrong for years.. the snow tile in the middle of the Palace in Nu'Jelm.... The dozens of missing tiles all over in Doom around the walls.... (DEV's challenge! Walk around Doom with your Circle of Transparency on and see all the missing tiles... FIX IT!)

    One of my biggest pet peeves... If we want to make the game better ..... it should look good and professional.... having tiles missing here and there and everywhere looks tacky.... Someone needs to go thru all the champ spawn area's and remove all the random lava and swamp tiles that are bugged and stuck in the ground now. I just look around and it's like OK you want people to come join UO and take a look at our world..... Yet in the EC I go around places like Gravewater Lake and it makes me just want to shake my head and walk away.... any idea how many water and sand tiles are out of place there? How crappy the edge of the water looks? And that's just one tiny example of it.... water edges like those are EVERYWHERE. It looks extremely unprofessional and tacky. Like an old 8bit game.

    I would love if I could be doing some of that clean up as a councilor.... deleting the 100's of watertroughs stuck all over, paintings, statues.... and other garbage that pollute the land and often block house placement for no reason.

    One more thing on that front...... If you are taking away factions...... return the glory to Lord British's Castle and put the freaking doors back on it.

    As for some updating on the Graphics in UO making the tiles higher res..... Thank you! But might I beg of you one thing.... in the Tokuno tiles is a tile set of wood which to me looks like a rich mahogany... I use it on my Theatre to give it a polish and make it look "richer".... PLEASE be sure it doesn't do what the original art of KR did and make it look like wood out of an old BARN!!! Turned my beautiful Mahogany wood into something that resembled a dilapidated Barn.... I was disgusted.
