Yet another "Five on Friday" Q&A feature is available on the official Ultima Online website.
Will you ever "fix" the circle of transparency in KR?
There are many display related issues that have become the focus of improvement as we continue work on the upcoming Stygian Abyss client. The Circle of Transparency option in the Kingdom Reborn client had a number of problems, a couple of which included making floors underneath your character invisible when attempting to remove the walls from view and making item drag and drop functionality within these areas very difficult. There were other more general display issues such as floors and walls above your character hiding or unhiding in unintended ways which frustrated many players who owned lofty housing.
Much of this has been reworked in the Stygian Abyss client and we are very happy with the results from our continued testing and improving process.
