This just pisses me off, and I am leaving UO to play Hello Kitty Online. THIS IS WHY:

Farming. It's the most amazing profession that I can't have in UO.

In Hello Kitty Online, I can be a snowman.

Okay, so in all seriousness, I'm not being honest. I'd never play Hello Kitty Online, I just happened to stumble upon this reading gaming sites. However, I am completely pissed off that a MMO that is free and caters to 10 year olds has (seemingly) better graphics than Ultima Online does. I mean, ignore the fact that it's like anime whatever, but the graphics are just... better.
Make fun of me all you want, but I just couldn't help myself.

rofl...

Also, oddly enough...

Farming is a profession in Lord of the Rings Online.... .....and you can be a snowman by using a special holiday item in World of Warcraft.

.....Someday, Schezwan...someday...keep dreaming :)

farming would be a cool profession to add.
Maybe have special dirt tiles drop as loot that crops can be grown on

I can only imagine what a Collector of Souls would look like in Hello Kitty Online.

*cough*... I think... yeah, I just threw up a little in my mouth.

If we had the KR textures back in the SA client, then UO could look... well, I think you know what I mean. Beyond that we just need a higher res for the SA client.

But god no don't let there ever be that much... PINK... in UO...

yeah big problem with KR is the resolution. Containers were so ridiculously big they took up 1/6th of your screen.

Well the UI in KR is scalable, thus easing the problem a bit. It's scalable in SA too, btw.

That's still not really what bugs me.

The highest resolution in SA (widescreen, at least) is still only something like 1280 x 800. My monitor's recommended settings are 1680 x 1050. That's still a huge disparity.

God I want your screen.

Mine will only go to 1280x1024. I have no idea about widescreen resolutions are - my screen is 4:3.

I'm not talking about pinkness, I'm talking about the quality of the graphics, which look better than UO. How does a free MMORPG get better graphics than the one I pay $13 a month for? Where is all that money going? I spent $1000+ dollars on UO since I started playing, and I feel like I should start seeing what I paid for at some point in time.

SA client is running great on my machine at 1680 x 1050 @ 60hz.

1280x800 is kinda oblongish, but it runs in 1280x1024 fine. Though typically I run windowed so I can read forums and ICQ.

How? Did they add a setting for that resolution?

Because otherwise you can't set the SA client to that high of a resolution.

The SA client allows me to bump up to my max resolution. I have been using the SA client exclusively at this resolution for the past month. So I am betting they updated the client to support higher resolutions. My max btw is 1440x900 on both monitors.
