Five on Friday - May 15, 2009
Is the SA client going to be a top down 2D view like 2D and KR or is it going to be more like a 3d world like world of warcraft?
The SA client is an improvement on the KR client, and thus still keeps the UO 2.5D look and feel – featuring new terrain, particle effects, animations, and an enhanced UI.
The Deal with the Vorpal Blade? I thought it was supposed to make a Vortex Hole that sends us to a random location...
My fault again! This and the other items will be enabled in a future Live publish.
Why is HLD available on glasses but HLA isn't?
This would need to be investigated further. It’s possible that the Design team during Mondain’s Legacy didn’t feel a need to include the Hit Lower Attack item property on glasses.
Will there be new housing tilesets in Stygian Abyss?
We will have additional tile sets added to the current ones.
I saw that pressing CTRL on a KR client makes player stops, and there's nothing to avoid this. I used to put many combinated keys macroes on ctrl.. This will change on SA client? Thanks.
The idea behind the control key in the KR client was to allow players to face in a direction without running. This was because it was much harder in KR to face in a direction by single clicking. We will be removing this key assignment completely for SA since so many players use the control key for macros.
