U3Project

Post by beastie » Thu Apr 29, 2004 7:33 am

A developer recently let me know about an Ultima III project he is part of, called U3Project. It sounds really interesting, in that it's to be a cross-platform update of Ultima III for modern computers. The most interesting part for me is the optional 3D first-person view everywhere, not just in dungeons.

The test release is (unfortunately for Mac users) currently Windows-only but looks quite promising!

Website not loading?

I just went to the www.u3project.com website, and it doesn't seem to be loading. Shame - I'm quite curious.

I've been thinking about using the TES:IV Oblivion construction set to recreate U3's britannia... I'm stuck in a hellish backwater hick town, and the lack of things to do is driving me crazy! Thus, I've been pricing out a new PC (alas, the construction set is unavailable for Mac).

Strangely, when I started playing TES:IV, at the beginning when I emerged from the sewers and see the world in all its glory - the first thing I thought about was Ultima3 - and that the world I was looking at was very close to the images I had in my head back in 1983, when I first played U3.

I recently discovered Crossover:Mac (run Windows apps on an Intel Mac). Anyone tried it on that?

U3Project appears to now be at http://www.xmission.com/~mhansen/ultima3/ as Ken mentioned above, but hasn't seen any action for over two years. :(
