A while back I read someone wanting underwater content for UO. While researching a Horn of Retreat for value, I read in UOGuide that much of Old Haven island sank.

What a great 'jumping off' point to underwater realms... a midway point being the sunken portions of the island, and deeper waters being accessed from there...

Was there any underwater content in the original Ultima series?

I think there might be significant hurdles to overcome in terms of animation, but probably no harder than making a player race of gargoyles...

To my knowledge, no underwater content ever existed. But neither did Tokuno, officially. I'm not married to the idea - just thought it'd be neat*.

*well, provided there are no Gungans.

I would personally like to see more on sea content before we start looking into the depths.

Pirates? No way! Ninjas beat pirates with their Real Ultimate Power!

On a completely different note: Looky Ani! Meesa All Sparkly Glowy! Yaahaa! Haa Haa Whoooo!*

Jar Jar would rather been seen and not heard....wait strike that..... should never have been filmed in the first place. Anyone see the South Parks Episode concerning the new Indy Flick. I felt the the same as all those cartoons hehehe.

If you're going to open up Star Wars, I'll open up X-Com.

I want the Horn of Retreat to open up X-Com: Terror from the Deep ;P

Even though Apoc was my fav.

oo that looks pretty sweet...

oh man, X-Com, I bought the original back on my birthday one year from one of those bins of games and I just picked it out at random and fell in love with the franchise, those were the days... it's one of those awesome games like Total Annihilation was for RTS, and now Supreme Commander... but they never brought back an official revision of X-Com post Apoc :( ... I loved Apoc......... but open source will save us all...

roflmao...anyway!!!

underwater, pirates, RIDEABLE SEAHORSES!!!!!! all of that...for UO, YES :)

can you imagine how hard pirate AI would be though lol... makes me think of Ski Free, and the monster that runs after you... that's what the AI pirate ships would be like, lol they'd be this slightly larger water elemental trying to track you down...
