A quick update about the patch. I've found a rather annoying crash issue with one of my changes, so I'll be dealing with that over the next few days. I've also found it difficult finding the time and motivation to play through the game, which has slowed things down as well.
In other news, I'm looking for a texture/2D artist. The primary job I have available is adding talking animations to all of the npcs. The "animation" mechanic is nothing more than a series of facial images in various stages of mouth and eyebrow movement - basically it works like a gif.

Also, if you are part of the Ultima Dragon's facebook group, please vote in the Ultima IX poor dungeon design poll. I'm interesting in learning which dungeons had serious design flaws that hindered their enjoyment.
