Globe of Sosaria
Mempo (classic client) and the Fancy Dress (classic client)... it may be 'fancy', but it is DEFINITELY ugly.
Hooded robes in classic. Items leaking through it ruins them for me.
Anything Blaze or that glacial ice blue
ugliest of the ugly...
everything that came from gargoyle expansion.
Dragons in the EC, Beetles in the EC, Horses in the EC, Player Characters in the EC, blaze and glacial anything, neon anything, those snowflakes and snowmen from a few years ago, and...swamp dragons in either client.
Dull,old,plain color anything like if it was made in the nineties and before super nintendo-nintendo games and before 32bit color systems.
Wow... You picked two of the MOST LIKED ITEMS for their NON-UGLINESS, that came from their respective events (9th Anniversary, and the Turkey event).
In fact, when the Crystal and Shadow items came out, the general opinion was that ONLY the globe was worth having out of the lot, and it was the only one you could find people willing to buy. Practically everything else was tossed on the ground, or (later) turned in during the 2008 Spring Cleaning.
The cornucopias are far from ugly, as well, ALSO were prized initially for their looks, but quickly became too commonplace.
If you want to talk about ugly, start with the entire Crystal Collection from 9th anny.
Crystal anything, but especially the housing tiles.
2D/Legacy graphics zoomed out of their native 1:1 ratio in the EC.
Yes hooded robes, and mostly referring to the hole in our chars rear when on a mount facing north-west. And the gorget... Quite the tattered brand new cloak.
I don't even have anything white on. You'd think it would show the armor.
Does Luna count as an item?
The mempo is the ugliest thing in UO. I still can't bear to wear Leurocian's Mempo because of the ugly factor. The second ugliest thing are the crystal housing tiles.
Wyverns. They used to be cool.
Yes, those pictures show exactly why hooded robes are a huge let-down. I remember being excited when they finally gave us the hooded robes. Then we came to find out that stuff leaked through.
God, the EC leather gorget is hideous. Simply hideous. It looks like a freaking turtleneck.
Snowmen and Snowflakes ....
Blaze and Glacial any crystal items,Leurocian's Mempo and swamp dragons
Solstice Candles...... WHY do they have to be larger than my character??? They should be HALF they size they are or even 1/3rd.... the size....
Crystal everything..... though I am not too offended by the crystal floor tiles..... the walls and everything else are HIDEOUSLY ugly.....
The snowflakes are about 2x too big...
Snowmen I don't mind so much..... I think they are somewhat silly but.... it's no biggy.
As far as clothes go..... the Mempo is the most hideously ugly thing in the game... I HATE it.
In the EC I can't understand why my character looks like the dress has white on it in game but on my paperdoll there isn't anything white on it.... Totally doesn't match.....
The EC male paperdoll..... VERY ugly.
The new EC Swamp dragon
The Hiryu in the EC..... looks stupid...
The ML ingredent BLIGHT! It looks like a big ole green booger!
Also the the Shimmering Effusion, Mantra Effervescence, Corporeal Brume and Fetid Essence all look like Giant boogers!
Underwear! Any character's underwear!
(Except mine, because he wears a lacy pink thong.)
are you kidding? it's not even in perspective.
anyway.. I always thought some of the coolest additions to the game were the savage content with controllers and all of that. was a good era of UO and all of the art was good. plague beast were ugly but it was a monster so it was supposed to be ugly. and you operated on them to get the plague beast core which was a ice blue brain. I remember i was very good at operating on them and made many mils doing that.
DRAGONS in the EC client HANDS-DOWN THE WORST ohh and all neon anything
Cornucopias are ugly..
Phillip's Wooden Steeds and those big ole Snowmen from a couple holidays ago are horrible as well.
Crystals do make a very nice water fall
Charger of the Fallen (normal hue in 2D) by a mile.
Any 3D stuff thrown in classic client without outline and with ugly shades.
That's what I got from a brief look at InsideUO. I'm sure there's more. I didn't even cover house tiles and walls, cause there are too many. Also, some creatures look wrong, but that depends on the client you use.
I tried the new client for about 5 min.
First of all I went to my fav dameon place to sacrifice.
It took awhile for me to understand that the leeping missbuildt poor animal was the old so brave dragon.
I went home and wanted to smith some items.
For the first time I saw the paperdoll of my old brave smith and he looked like a 12 years old girl.
Logged and changed to 2d again.
In short .Dragons and paperdoll in EC.
I think mempos are getting a bad rap here! I personally love them, especially if they are made out of a metal material. On female characters they look like little cat faces! Too cute!
Crystal is hideous, all types. Globes of sosaria, and my most hated, that disgusting blood worm costume!
I thought crystal was awful too, then I found some of it could be oki, in the right setting.
It's not so much the 'ugly' that gets to me it's the 'out of proportion to everything else' stuff.
Oh yeah. The thing they said they were redoing... IN DECEMBER.
So, where is this new male paperdoll? There is no excuse, imo, for needing over HALF A YEAR to redraw it. rolleyes:
The truth is it is "different strokes for different folks" and some things that are ugly in one context can be quite spectacular in another. Although I suppose if I had to choose two it would be the EC dragon, and the CC swamp dragon - oh ya, and all those Felucca "pvp" waterfall house designs...
I agree! The mempo DOES resemble certain cat faces!!
The whole Enhanced client
My tamer's outfit.
(That circlet is a deer mask, apparently they fixed it in game but never bothered with character search.)
Isn't it going on more like 3 years now? They said they'd redo it back when KR was foist upon an unsuspecting public.
As for how long it's taken this time I give you one guess as to why or rather who is responsible for that...
True, though it really makes me wonder even more if they are indeed going to use things by NetDragon when they release a remade Ultima for Asia in 2011.
NetDragon's press releases always contain the following:
>>The Group's game portfolio comprises a range of massively multiplayer online games that cater to various types of players and gaming preferences. Current offerings include the games Way of the Five, Eudemons Online, Conquer Online, Zero Online, Heroes of Might & Magic Online, Disney Fantasy Online and Tian Yuan. The Group also has multiple games currently in development, including Dungeon Keeper Online, Doomsday, Cross Gate, Legend of the Dark and a new version of Ultima Online. <<
LoL, this made my day! Thank you!
Mempos are not that bad in the EC, in the 2d client however they are horrible.
As for what ist he ugliest a$$ item in UO today? I would have to say the Ridgeback, it is just the ugliest thing to see lol.
the travesty mask. makes my guy look like an ugly buddah.
Oh ya, The Mark of the Travesty. That truly is one of the ugliest creations in the game. I doubt if I'd ever use one, even if I found a perfect one, for that reason alone.
Everything from LBR onwards, but especially Talismans.
i think the ugliest items are the duped ones
WOW!!! I was going to take a screenshot of the beetles in the EC. But when I logged on, I was plesently surprized. They accually listened to us and fixed the God awful looking bugs. They look pretty good now.
LOL I think they are doing a good job at correcting the graphics... they still need a bit of work on the bags.
The globe itself is great, imo. It's the base that's ugly. And the cornucopia is really well done, just way too big.
One thing that all this talk about art shows is that there's a wide range of opinions. Sometimes I think it's more to do with specific parts or aspects that jump out at different people, for good or for bad. Like that Globe, I think the great globe overcomes the really lousy base, but I can understand where that base destroys it for others. Just a matter of perspective.
A good example is between me and my son, who played UO when the first 3D client came out.
I couldn't accept it because of the avatars and movement, along with a few MOB's art. But my son loved the spell effects, and ignore the avatars. When I asked him about them, he just said "yeah, they're ugly." But the effects had him thrilled, where they didn't overcome my objections.
both are fine imho, but the jagged edges on the base of the globe drive me ballistic.
