In response to my desperate plea on his blog as to why they would allow mods to improve utility along with appearance:
Keen: “UI mods for not only appearance but utilityâ€¦ Why Josh? Why?”
Josh: “There really ISNâ€™T anything we can say that WONâ€™T trigger panic from someone. Thereâ€™s nothing functionally that you can add via a mod that isnâ€™t available in the standard, out of the box UI.“
You’re right about that. I panic when a broad term like “utility” is used in hand with “mods”. Nightmares. Horrible… vivid.. nightmares. No need for panic anymore though. I can sleep easy at night knowing that there will be no additional functionality added to Warhammer Online through the use of UI Mods that isn’t already available via the standard out of the box UI. The out of the box UI will be the peak of functionality. I am functionally sound and secure!
Now to find something else to panic about!
