I like the "blow up" system he's going back to. Even as it stands with the fog of war and overland travel it feels much more like an Ultima.
One of the mistakes he made IMO with U9 was the removal of this.
When first implemented with Ultima I it was the workaround for limitation of the technology and it didn't just become a technique it added to the whole art of the game and was copied for decades. It was a feature he said he hated in U9.
Not sure if it can be traced back to the DnD days but in Akalabeth you had this not for towns but for dungeons. The original Telengard did this too.
