Ultima 4 (and 5), while they have their strong points, are so technologically dated that they're liable to be a turnoff unless you got started playing games from that era.
i'm torn on this - it makes sense to a degree, but there's a growing "kids get off my lawn" curmudgeon in me that prefers not to sympathize with the 'jaded youngsters'. :D of course in the final analysis, we can't make anyone have a form of fun they aren't inclined to have.
Another, less full on cheating, way to get a ton of food and money is to create a party of four. ...
not sure how that's "less full on" than any other form of 'something for nothing' (there is no risk involved in dumping/reforming and not even any kind of record of using, say, a 'cheat-code'), unless you're just making a distinction based on things the original developers would incorporate and/or directly refer to as 'Cheats'.
or we could pick nits and call one column 'Exploits' assuming that nobody deliberately designed them to be taken advantage of (like the collect/dump/reform loophole), and the other column 'Cheats' if it's as egregious as God Mode or +X money from thin air...
