This is a better suggestion.



While not as pretty as WAR or whatever, it is definitely in 3D. EA buying this software/ software team outright would make sense. It would shatter the different naysayer's arguements that UO stinks because it isn't 3D. There could be three versions:

A.) Classic Client.
B.) Enhanced Client.
C.) Iris Client. For higher end PCs.

EDIT: I hope this thread is appropriate. I'm not advertising a third partry free server here...

Not really a bad idea but maybe not cost effective. They would need to sink a lot of money into an already dieing game which they probably won't. However it could bring in a lot of new people so while I doubt it would happen might be good. I still like 2d best.

I've known Iris for long and I am amazed of that great work as I am an UO fan for life. However, even if EA would allow use of the client, uo would not be the same game anymore.
Imagine a seriously decorated player house. What would that look like with Iris? Imagine a piano (made of several items google uo home decor). It would look incredibly odd if one would look at it with Iris.
It's cool it's pretty but it's just not uo.

Despite Third Dawn, Kingdom Reborn and now the Stygian Abyss client, I've always used the classic client and won't leave it for less than a compelling reason(they discontinue it, lol). UO just doesnt look and "feel" the same, at least for me, apart from the 2D client.

I wish they would have dumped all the effort into making the EC into adding some of the better features into the 2d client.

Macro gump and a atlas/full size map? Yes please.
