Since Unisys' patent on the LZW algorithm has expired, you could add a compression utility to the Nuvie binaries, in the "tools" directory.
This would allow people to change the Ultima 6 graphics or add new ones.

Thanks for the information. I think U6 will accept uncompressed data (it does for conversations), so if you didn't care about disk space you could just put things into an uncompressed U6lib and it will work.
Unpack_conv needs to be rewritten anyway.
