When logging into EC you will notice on the top menu bar of the log in screen a button for Custom UI’s. This is where you may select to use a custom UI if you have one installed in your User Interface. You may also switch your UI from ‘in game’ in the Main Menu/User Settings/Options tab under the heading ‘Interface’.
If you can’t ‘create your own UI or just wish to ‘learn’ how to create and/or install one, you will find people who are willing to ‘share’ the ones they have created with all EC Users or those who will ‘assist’ you in how to actually do it. Since the introduction of KR, the ‘Modders Exchange’ has been building a list of downloadable UI’s for all to use. Questions on custom UI’s may be had by asking on the Forums or by visiting the Modders Exchange website (links below).
I am no expert on creating a Custom UI, however for those of you who think you have the ability then these are the ‘original’ instructions provided by EA/Mythic via a news post by Jeremy Dalberg in 2007 for the KR client. The difference being replace the words KR for EC when following the instructions.

With the latest KR patch, we’ve added the ability to customize your interface. Below the jump are some basic instructions on how to go about it – we’ll be providing more details and examples over the next few weeks, but if you’re comfortable playing with XML, go for it! Getting Started
1. Locate the UserInterface folder. It will be in the install directory for UO Kingdom Reborn.
* The zip file in the UserInterface folder contains the default layouts and textures used in UOKR. By modifying these files you will be able to customize the look of the UOKR interface.
* Make sure your event handlers match the ones in the default UI.
* Our interface textures are in DXT (.dds) format. The following link has downloads for DXT tools and photoshop plugins: http://developer.nvidia.com/object/nv_texture_tools.html
