Hail and Well Met!

We want to thank all of you who came to the Seattle Townhall, in person, virtually, and otherwise. We have been really anxious and excited to talk about the next expansion pack for Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss.

Now that we have formally announced that we are working on SA, we may – from time to time – ask for feedback on game systems and features. We will continue to keep you updated on SA via our website, FoF, as well as dev posts.

It feels really good to be able to interact with you all about what I’ve been working on.

May your swords and spells never fail!

Welcome back, I look foward to seeing how SA progresses.

As for requesting feedback, I would hope that every effort will be made to make sure that those folks who don't read the messageboards are included. Yes, putting a note in FoF is a great start, but I do hope that serious consideration is being made to use the patcher's built in news system.

Most message boards represent the vocal minority and I would hate for the game to be shaped by a small section of the community who scream (whine?) the loudest.

Thanks for the info Leurocian.
I do agree however that we all require at least a few pictures of the Princess.

Whew, glad you made your great escape from the dungeon and there still is a bright future for UO. Was worried you and your team had been waylaid to WHO by some nasty Mythic dungeonmaster. Appreciate hearing good news that 2D will be a part of SA, and looking forward to more.

Not to sound too harsh but, are you (as a company) actually going to listen this time? I can recall many times over the last few expansions where feedback was ask, players gave it and even tested some of the new items, features, etc. And warned about abuses and problems. And what happened when this expansions were released? Yup the exact problems players pointed out remained and took quite sometime to fix, some have still not be address. Yes I have been vague about some of these problems, but I did not feel like rehashing old arguements again.

I wish you luck and make a great expansion, but given your company's track record, I am not expecting much. You put out a feaures list for SA and everyone should know, you will not get every feature on that list implemented in time for its release date.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment

Having been through the Third Dawn fiasco and tested that wreck I really hope they mean they will devote the time and effort to putting SA out after really listening to the feedback from the players. It is great to see this post, but so much more needs to be done.

Glad to see you made it out safely!

Feedback:
I hear there are going to be big updates to the crafting system. Carpentry and Tinkering BODS would be nice. Maybe some interesting furniture peices as rewards for carpentry BODs. I love the KR macro and crafting systems they have now, but turning logs into boards is very time consuming when you have a large number of logs. The weight makes this task very tetious since you can only hold about 200 logs at a time. A better way to do this would be ideal. Maybe something like smelting ore, even if sitting on the ground, you can still smelt it. Something similar for logs would be great!
