    Hehe, congrats to your new neighbour, Frarc! [​IMG]

    There is a max. spot (18x18) right beside the Circus Charivari (near/east of Luna), in front of the former Horus Cave. If somebody would like to place a house there, let me know [​IMG]

    Thanks for the plot Frarc and for helping your new neighbour out.
    Now I have to read some house-building guides, so I don't spoil the neighbourhood with a crappy house design [​IMG]

    Pleasure!

    Well, for the house design..... wonder why no house was unfront of me? Maybe it got to do with horrible looking house and that cannon you saw on my roof![​IMG]

    ROFL!

    Damnit, didn't think about it before I placed my house ... What's the shooting distance of this damn thing? [​IMG]

    And as for design ... Luckily my wife has, in contrary to me, some very good taste, so I think I will just show her the designs until she approves. (might take a while, though) [​IMG]

    Take your time for the design. It took me a couple of weeks to make mine. I even drawed them roughly on paper first .


    And for the cannon...well i know Box is often on the roof to take care of the aquarium. Knowing his reputation as a T-hunter to blow up stuff, especially himself, i should not worry too much about it! [​IMG]

    I really don't know. probably not [​IMG]

    My account is old indeed, but I think only the active subscription periods count.
    I couldn't use Frarc's steed statuette for example.

    About the costs.
    Placing the plot cost about 180K
    Now, ehen I enter the customizing tool, the costs are listed as 187K.
    Does that mean, that I have to pay the 187 or is this the price I already payed for the plot and only what exceeds this 187 will be real new costs?

    187K is the price of the plot already, you don't need to pay that again. [​IMG]

    Frarc, if I build sometning small now, to save costs and not have to look at the emty spot and later reconsider, once I am set on a design, will I have to pay the full price (minus the polt) or will I have to pay for the old one and the new one?

    Cat, what exactly does "housewarming party" mean? [​IMG]
    I am an oldtime pen and paper roleplayer but I don't really roleplay inside UO if not necessary
    Some how computers and rolplaying dont mix for me [​IMG]
    But you are welcome to come and visit me of course and we can meet for this "housewarming" once you have explained to me, what this really means ...
    You bring the food and I order the strippers? (j/k) [​IMG]

    You can make a design now and then later if you change it you only need to pay what you build on the new design. If you take away tiles you get a refund even.

    Let say you just build blue floor tiles. Then next time you change them in red floor tiles the cost is 0 .


    You only pay 1 time for the tiles you place. If you build the first time a house of 1 million and then the second time one of 700K you get 300K refund.


    If you build one the first time of 200K and then the second time one of 800K you will have to pay 600K extra.

    I had a look in the house just a minute ago and it looks realy nice! [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Now the decorating will take probably even more time.
    For a start, where can I get those standing, big Chests? (metal and wood)
    Things that come to mind for starters would be a bed, some cupboards, tables and chairs.
    Of the more practical things a forge and anvil for the smith's workshop.
    If the things can be crafted, than I would like to make them myself because it's more fun this way [​IMG]

    Most things you can make yourself with a carpenter. Stone tables need digged up stone but you need to learn some specail stonecrafting books from Gargoyle City in Ilshenar.
    Only a GM carpenter can read the books and a GM miner can only dig up stones i think.

    Metal chest can be got from Paragon Monsters or from SoS bottles from fishing.

    Paragon chest you better let them open by a good lockpicker with some experience removing traps. [​IMG]


    Thats why i have a complete crafter with carpentry,tinkering,smithing, mining and tailoring. This way i could make alot of my house decoration stuff myself.

    OK
    So I'll train up my Miner/SMith to become a carpenter also? And what about tinkering, is it OK to put all the major crafting skills on one char?

    And for those chests. I have two adeptly drawn maps from the hiryus I was killing lately. I know you have a cartographer/lockpicker. Can we go dig them up?

    Since I will need many chests, so you know if I can buy them anywhere?

    We can dig those up but T-chest can not picked up and taken home with us.

    People sell Paragon chests. I keep a eye on them too when i go out Daemon hunting for Virtues in Blood Dungeon in Ilshenar.

    Amslore give some extra resists on armor and damage increase on weapons. Music to make my own Instruments.
    And Medi just because i wanted it. [​IMG]


    To make a interesting template you could do:

    120 Smithing
    120 Tailoring
    100 Mining
    100 Tinkering
    100 Carpentry
    100 Armslore
    80 Magery

    I'll do that, looks very nice.
    Although, I don't have the 720 cap increase yet.

    Can you please make a forge and anvil for me?
    My smith is standing in my house looking at an empty workshop [​IMG]

    On second thought, maybe just grant him access to your house so he can use your anvil?
