We Enhance Worlds...


The Darkshard Development DVD contains every application that I have collected over the last 18 years that pertains to UO development. Every piece of software you could want or need to create your very own custom replacement map and shard is included. Also included are many other development items as listed below.

Purchasing the DVD is a HUGE savings compaired to purchasing all my Maps, Dragon IMod Addons, 2D Client Enhanced Graphics Upgrade, Darkshard WoWLike GUI, 2D Client Enhanced GUI, and Darkshard Crystalline GUI individually (over a $200.00 value). You are only paying for the Maps, Dragon IMod Addons, Darkshard GUI, 2D Client Enahnced GUI, Darkshard Crystalline GUI, Darkshard Gothic GUI, and 2D Client Enhanced Graphics Upgrade. All other software and files on the DVD are completely FREE and offered only as bonus material to allow you to change/edit any of the maps or graphics as you see fit.

This DVD is really starting to become a HUGE collection of very usefull information as well as tools for all shard developers. There is so much information now that it will now ship as a DVD due to a single CDRom no longer being able to contain all of the information. Multiple CDRom's can be shipped if you don't have the ability to read a DVD on your computer just be sure to email me and let me know you require it in CDRom format instead.



  • 2D Client Enhanced Graphics folder contains the enhanced graphics upgrade that provides new HI-Res textures, and landtiles for the game.
