    Kingdom Reborn actually looked pretty good. Especially in the screenshots shown at the bottom here. https://www.uoguide.com/Ultima_Online:_Kingdom_Reborn
    I really liked the look of this one. https://www.uoguide.com/File:Kingdom_reborn_3.jpg
    That Lich casting an Energy Bolt was bad ass looking. The Lizardman, Titan, Ettin, Cyclops, Mummy, and Stone Harpy all look 10x better than what's in the EC as well.

    I enjoyed this client: https://www.uoguide.com/Ultima_Online:_Third_Dawn but one of the things that has struck me all these years is the number of clients UO has had.  I think WoW has had one or two client changes but they only support one client.

    UO can't get past the two client system.  Maintaining 2 clients is inefficient and the practice needs to end.

    UO Clients
    EC = better UI
    CC = better Graphics
    Solution install a switch to use EC Graphics with all that goes with it ZOOM or CC Graphics and disable ZOOM.  I do not like UOs version of EC Graphics.
    And they need to add UOAssist functions to EC
  • UO Kingdom Reborn was an exciting time in UO history. It looks like a really great refresh was about to happen to the game. Not entirely sure what happened or why it wasn't supported anymore, but I was disappointed when the whole thing fell through. The game looked great!

    UO has a history, now, of disappointments. Yet here we all still are playing it.

    New Legacy is that exciting time again, but I advise you all to not get your hopes up. When was the last time Broadsword delivered?

    When was the last time Broadsword delivered?

    Not sure about you, but all the items I wear, the spellbook I use, the over 100 5 slot pets I use, the ships I sail in, the custom keeps/castle I live in, most of the deco in them,  were all made available by Broadsword.

    They delivered my whole UO existence pretty much.

    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    Since you called me here.  Step up and tell us what TC2 is in your opinion.  


    Since we are talking about TC2 they must have communicated it in some form.

    Well with wild speculation as a result of poor leadership you can just come up with anything

    I have never needed leadership to play UO and have fun.  Was I supposed to be waiting for someone to tell me what to do?  I have been doing it wrong all these years.

    Lets just say it is NL.  Bleak may need some time to set it up and do some QA on it before letting others on or it is just a distraction to get others thinking LOL

    Well it's the next big thing the very savior of UO years in the works can't attract players with silence

    You know how I know it’s New Legacy on TC2?

    No one who posts on this forum seems to have been invited.

    OMG they will say something when they have something to say!


    Seriously, my thought is that it's internal testing atm, they had to set up a test shard to make sure all of the mechanisms and whatever else they are adding works. NL is like a total re-do of the game. I am sure they have tested it on their end, super Dev computers and all but now they are testing it on the general populations platform to ensure that it works as intended, doesn't crash UO, works in tandem with UO without issues, bleed-over....since they will allow transfers at the end of a season they have to test to make sure transfers can't be done prematurely...SO much to test so WHEN THEY ARE READY THEY WILL TELL US!

    Go outside and enjoy the garden...or the weeds...which is what I will be dealing with for the next week! UGH! Now TOO much rain, too hot to be outside for the last week so the weeds are VERY happy!

    Anyway....testing in progress, will wait for further info....
