UO Black Box

UO Black Box is a versatile set of utilities and tools specifically designed for the staff members who design Ultima Online. Its range of features enables game designers to perform a variety of tasks with ease, such as finding and selecting items, setting hues, and creating decorations.

This toolset was developed to provide game designers with a more efficient and enjoyable experience while editing and building the game. UO Black Box includes a comprehensive array of features, including search and filter tools, multi-selection options, and various decoration tools.

Moreover, the toolset is customizable, allowing game designers to add or remove tools as per their requirements. Overall, UO Black Box represents a powerful set of tools that significantly enhances the game design process for staff members.

This project will grow over the coming months as more tools are added!
