18 x 18

Discussion in 'UO Homes and Castles' started by greatpumpkinator, Jun 27, 2008.

  1. Someone wanna help me come up with a cool house design for 18 x 18?
    My current design can be seen at http://www.kevinwiegand.com/UO/GreatLakes.aspx

    I don't like it anymore...but am completely inept when it comes to architecture.

    Well, we can all throw out ideas, and in fact have done so many times, but it is hard to give anything but random suggestions without more to go on.

    For an 18X18 (and in general any plot), you really need to decide first what you want overall. Do you want the full size of the lot to be covered by one continuous building? Do you want a little village look? A large building covering most of the lot, with a yard? That sort of thing. Then you need to consider, is the house in Trammel or Felucca - i.e. is safety in the design a big deal? Finally, do you want "classic" look, going for realism, optical illusion and interesting designs, etc.

    Here's a link to my decoration album (via myspace) for some ideas.

    And here the last 18x18 I designed for some ideas as well.

    I love your house designs, Zynia...they always look so cozy and more like "real" houses.

    I am curious...what did you use for the rail decorations? It looks like a white birthday bell with something on top to simulate a ribbon, but the image is a bit blurry, and I can't quite make it out.

    @ Sky, one of each type of yarn stacked on the same tile. ID to raise/lower to get a "bow" effect, and a white holiday bell underneath the stack. :} It was my christmas "garland" from my large marble, if you go to the myspace album you may be able to see it better.

    Oops, thanks you. lol.

    If they were posted on the old boards you may be able to find them after the weekend. That's if I'm reading the announcement at the top of the board right.

    They were, I believe. I know my Halloween one was. I know Skylark has a picture of my electric chair from it! I had icicles made from valorite beaded necklaces.. I read that announcement too. So that means the old boards are gone? :(

    well, there was already a plan to move to vbb, UBB is very old now and not supported. The crash brought things forward, somewhat to people's consternation because they weren't really ready yet.
    The old databases are being imported into these though, so except for a few things that were totally unrecoverable, all the old threads with screenies and FAQs etc should be available here after the weekend.
     
  13. Ok so after almost 2 weeks with broncitis and pnomoeia i'm back and here are the changes I did to the rune library.. its not decorated cause i'm still a bit sick but you'll get the idea ;)
