    I just wanted to say how cool it is that PG has windows in the buildings that you can look through. I remember noticing that in AC1 and being impressed. Such a small, seemingly simple thing, but most all MMOs just don't have that feature.

    I didn't play AC1 for long (I couldn't afford two subs) but I remember being impressed my many of the mechanics. They just make sense. May be the best fishing I've seen too.

    Thanks! That was something Aaron pushed for. I insisted we have buildings without loading screens, which makes things a lot more difficult to optimize, but it's important to me. And Aaron said something like "if you're gonna have buildings on the landscape, then they should have windows." It actually does add some more technical concerns and we may end up taking a few out as we optimize, but I do like the effect.
