He created two different threads on the stratic forums.
http://stratics.com/community/thread...ousing.282186/We would like to provide an open UO style world, but we do not want to run off newbies. Please give me your ideas for and opinions about PvP in what you see as the Ultimate RPG.
We would like to provide as close to the open housing methods that we provided in UO, but perhaps improving the "urban sprawl" issues. We definitely want player towns to be possible and worthwhile. Please give us your opinions and ideas about player housing.
I think this is rather interesting that Richard Garriott would consult the community on this. Especially given IPY's attempts at solving some of these dilemmas. I'm sure you've sat, ruminating these very same conundrums, Az. It's also a little worrisome that Garriott doesn't already have the answers.
What's your take on this kind of thing? What thoughts would you give to ol' Lord British.
