    Argh cannot edit Title Should say Locking PHFFT

    Since the courtyard of a Castle is included as part of the Castle design, and no one can recall in to that area why not let us decorate our courtyard.

    Especially with all the new items.

    Headge rows.

    Horse Bardings.

    Etc

    Its about time

    That would be a hard thing for them to code. being that its not a floor of a house its in open space hence why you can place castles on top of some objects.

    Try placing that Grass Tile outside the foundation were you can place steps etc.

    You will find you can not.

    The problem is the court yard is not coded as part of a foundation. Because it is not coded as part of a foundation, you can not lock things down on it.

    The court yard use to be considered ... mostly ... open land. Hence you could mark a rune in it and recall to or gate to the spot. That changed some time ago. You can no longer do that. I am not sure if that change also prevented spawn from occurring in the court yard or not. Things use to be able to spawn in the court yard.

    I sold all my houses, towers and castles when I left UO about 8 months after Trammel went live. Things regarding Castles have become considerable FUBAR'd since then.

    I voted Don't care and I would suggest the OP advocate that the Castle be allowed to be changed to a Customized House type. It would become vastly more functional if they did that.

    Would already be nice, to be able locking things on the outer walls (i.e. paintings, message boards, banner deeds etc) without being bound to the steps and door area.
    This between would be great for all houses.

    I haven't tried, but I guess we can place non-decaying items such as barrels and (?) ballot boxes.
