 after playing a bit of Ultima VII a thought occured to me. 

 

Therefore I think a system like in Ultima VII would be great.

 

 maybe similar to how Ultima 8 did them 

 

If you want to play an Ultima game Richard Garriott recently did a kickstarter. 

 

Go there.

 

 

Thanks for the warm welcome ;)

There's nothing wrong with a hidable UI, but no UI at all is untenable. Besides, inventory and character sheets and so forth are all part of the UI. What you're suggesting is there should be no helpful gameplay UI which would arbitrarily limit the actions of players. Just because you don't want a field/combat UI doesn't mean they should hamper other players' enjoyment for the sake of a minority's demands.

 

The isometric view is fundamentally not immersive as it's a godlike omniscient viewpoint from which the player can see every non-hidden NPC on the field at any given time. None of the races have a ring of 8 eyes encircling their heads, how is it immersive if that character can still detect an enemy trying to attack from behind?

This.

 

It's fine to have everything be doable via hotkey and thus generally run around with the UI hidden if you want, but not everyone likes to do that.
