A Holiday Update has been posted at the Ultima 5 Redux blog. Newly implemented features include the intro screen with fire animation, Use interface, Ready equipment interface, changing party order, character stats, and item descriptions.
From the video, one can also notice the ability to load one of a list of saved games (as opposed to just one). Here, as well as in other recently implemented features, we can see user interfaces that differ significantly from the original game, and hopefully add quite a bit of value.
There are a number of things that will be worked on next, ranging from pathfinding to saving the game.© by Daniel D'Agostino 2002-2020
