A Simpler Time

I can barely remember now these days what the UI in Ultima Online was like. Can you?
It was mostly a bare screen.. a radar/map..maybe your health & mana bar?

I never even had that many things open at one time.. only the radar and the screen was full, and not occupying the top left :P

Trion implemented a nice area map (via M) which goes transparent when you move which is a nice touch. I was thinking of maybe taking that a step further by making your whole UI go transparent whenever you are travelling. The only things that should possibly stay visible are instant cast spells, and possibly the radar. If you took damage, maybe your health bar would re-appear.
More appreciating the scenery than cuttering up your screen with gaudy windows and text.
