Posted on UO Stratics, in a discussion about why we are getting new art, and not new bug fixes...

Player: I doubt the person that made the art for these would have been fixing bugs instead.

Wilki: Correct.

Also, they were created for a Japanese marketing initative that was designed to target new players that might not have otherwise considered playing UO. Without new players, the game dies. Now that we all know that fact, we can stop making these lame threads every time something like this comes up.

Capiche?



CatHat: Yeah - pretty much the way it was - As i recall - Grimm and I made this stuff after the Holiday season when a lot of folks were away and your x-mas reindeer sled stuff was all done and delivered. Like Wilki said - it was on the request of the Japan offices that we do this - sortta like their version of the 8th age box with promotional gifts that was out here in the west some time earlier. It was just a quick, fun thing - but was so well recieved we thought we'd better get it available for people out here who are into housing collectables.

Given a little direction and a little free reign - we cranked out stuff for fun. I did the little 'cathat' statue of giving and Grimm made the "mongbat dartboard" that screams when you nail it. The soji screen is modeled off of a real mango wood soji screen in my place - hmm and a bunch of the other things are just cool little items based on whimsy and input from our contacts in japan.

Bascially, it didn't negatively impact our schedule making these housing items. It was all about fun.

Keep your eyes peeled for more random artie goodies coming with the next pub. (uh oh - he just dropped a teaser on you - lol -yep!) Some things for you powermongers out there too from what i hear. Guess we'll all have to wait and see what the designers decide to launch come the next pub.

"Artie goodies" is such a confusing term given today's UO, does that mean new art or new artifacts? :)

Given it's CatHat speaking I'll go with the former, and best so, we don't need new property-ridden gear but updates to the looks of things currently in game.

Oh and clothes. Lots more clothes!
