I think one of the topics that came up for discussion at the outing was the graphics engine of UO. True some players prefer the 2D engine (and so do I - I play almost exclusively on 2D).

But without a graphics overhaul, it's kinda hard to attract new players to UO.

Roxy, thanks very much for the lovely pictures ! /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

It appears that the site you uploaded the pics doesn't allow remote linking ? (I can't seem to use the "image" tags to display the photos).

If so, can you still send the following pics to me (just a few) by ICQ ?

I'll try to put up some sort of short write-up (with pics) and submit it to the UO Stratics Community News team and see if they will post it on the Community News page.

P/S Wei ! What's the meaning of this shot ??!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/1630962/

Warshock and all players who attended - please help me out a little

In my list to Roxy of the pics, can you help me identify you, if you appear in the pics and if so, state link and some pointer (eg "I am in pic - link - I'm in a dark blue shirt").

I know for example Salamanca Witch doesn't appear in any of the pics, because she arrived after the pics were taken.

Yes, Aminest appears in quite a few of the pics, doesn't he ? /php-bin/shared/images/icons/tongue.gif

Thornwind and myself (CitizenKane2) sponsered jointly an informal gathering of Singapore UO Players on 20 Nov 2005 at BBoss Cafe.

43 players attended the gathering (see list of attendees below). We were blessed with cool weather (a touch of cloudiness, with no scorching sun) in a picturesque venue. The Cafe was set in Istana Park, complete with a large fountain and gardened landscaping.

There was a decent buffet spread (I think it was predominantly Asian crusine) and the free flow of drinks (no alchohol, thanks to the wisdom of Thornwind /php-bin/shared/images/icons/wink.gif) contributed to the friendly discussions between the UO players on a wide variety of topics - some even related to UO /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif, like 2D v 3D graphics, the upcoming Formosa pvp tourney and who has the most UO rares /php-bin/shared/images/icons/spin.gif (hint : think Pacific).

Ok, some pictures :

Close-ups of the Reception Book made by Dran (Thanks again ! /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif). The reception book collected all 43 signatures.




Thornwind posing with the Reception Book made by Dran (yes, it resembles the cover of the UO Magery Book) with CitizenKane2.




Group shot of most of the UO Players who attended - some players missed the shot though, cause they came slightly late. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/tongue.gif




Group shot of the Formosa Players who attended. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/wink.gif Roxy, the gentleman who took all the photos (and in red), is on CitizenKane2's right.




The gentleman in blue, next to the lovely lady, is Dran, who created the Reception book.





Further shots showing (among others) Aminest and Icy-Raine.

Cory, LAH Architect, hellwolf, roy01, Ganjaku, Aminest, Salamanca Witch, Khellek, warshock, dran, roxy - thanks for your kind words.

Aminest, I didn't know you didn't sign the book. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/tongue.gif Opps. I may have to recount the number of signatures on that book.

I'll drop EA Singapore a note shortly with a link to this page, as an "FYI".

Hopefully, EA Singapore can show some support for the UO Community and we can get something together for another gathering in June 2005, probably on a Sunday (since players like Archmage and Saruman work on Saturdays).

As some of you have noticed, there is a short write-up and link posted on the Community News of UO Stratics. Thank you, Lady Malynn /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

Thanks Nadia also, for making this thread sticky for the outing.

In relation to EA Singapore, I have sent to them the following e-mail (addressed to Chris Ng and Diana of EA Singapore, copied to Sunsword, Wilki and Binky) :

<blockquote>Dear Chris and Diana,

I refer to my e-mail of 16 Nov 2004 to Diana below.

As you are aware, Adrian (another UO Player) and myself organised and sponsered a Singapore UO Players Gathering on 20 November 2004. You may read more about the gather posted on the Community News section of UO Stratics - (http://uo.stratics.com/news/CommunityNews.shtml#newsitem1101330888,78395,). A fuller report and the comments from some of the attendees may be found at this link at the UO Asia forum of UO Stratics - (http://boards.stratics.com/php-bin/uo/showflat.php?Cat=&amp;Board=uoasia&amp;Number=5443196&amp;page=0&amp;view=collapsed&amp;sb=5&amp;o=0&amp;fpart=11&amp;what2=postlist).

We were disappointed that either of you turned up at the gathering, even to say "hi" to the subscribers to UO who attended the gathering.

As you are aware, one of hall marks of running a successful online game (as opposed to selling stand alone games) is the cultivation of a community. If a subscriber feels that he/she is part of a community - and a community that is supported by the distributor of the online game, it is much more likely that the subscriber will continue to play (and pay for) the online game.

It is in this spirit - that EA Singapore will support and cultivate the UO Community in Singapore - that we ask EA Singapore to consider sponsering (in whole or in part) the next Singapore UO Players gathering (tentatively schedule in June 2005). It would be tremendously disappointing if EA Singapore does not live up to the standards set by EA divisions in other jurisdictions (eg EA Japan) and actively support the UO community in Singapore.

An online game community that is not actively supported by the distributor may well be influenced to seek out other alternatives, which are actively supported.

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future and I hope to hear a response that will complement the hard work that has been put into UO by the developers in the USA.

Regards,
Christopher Tan (CitizenKane2 on UO Stratics)</blockquote>

If I receive any response from EA Singapore, I'll let you guys know.
