    Out of curiosity when people buy these types of items and display them do ya usually axe the boxes or just lock them down and set them to "anyone"?

    Guest Guest

    Guest Guest

    Can you use an engrave tool on a box like this to maybe put "Check out my bird" lol?
    I have a box locked down and set to anyone to display my old deeds and was wondering if anyone besides me actually ever click on stuff like that.

    More than one of those statues was released to the public. You can see them, sometimes in pairs, on small and large house steps across the land. There are easily 50+ on Atlantic alone right now. Head to brit moongate in fel and even a small house just NE of there has two on the steps...

    Recent changes made things like that just disapear if you attempt this, so don't bother.

    why was post deleted? The guy took the time to provide useful information on these items. im just asking as the explanation of the exploit was from over 8 years ago and no longer able to be done, i found it helpful in allowing buyers to assess how many of these items are out there, and dont see the problem with it especially if corrupt EM items, and other exploit items are being recognized and documented.

    If your going to recognize these items, all im saying is that the information behind them must be recognized as well.

    This is an ultra necro bump, but its to provide some information on these rares in case they still exist in someones museum.
    I will never play again, so I don't mind revealing it, besides I'm sure the housing rules have since changed.

    Back in 2008 or so, I discovered a bug that no one seemed to be taking advantage of. You could get any Seer/GM items that were set to movable false ,which were were placed on the ground, into your housing storage box.
    As long as you placed the home plot stairs on the item, the item would pop onto the stairs, you could then lock it down, and customize your house. This would put it in the temporary storage box.
    Then what you did was place another house, so the one with the rare would go IDOC, resulting in dropping a metal box with the item inside when it fell.

    I started going to every shard and searching for seer/gm placed items from the first years of UO's life that may have been still around on the floor somewhere. Sure enough, I found tons (some not included in this auction).

    Soon after I found this exploit, my brother remembered a unique spot on Atlantic that had a circle of marble columns. The only place like it across all servers.
    This spot was special we soon found, as you could use the exploit previously stated, but every server down, it would spawn a new one on the steps that you could actually pick up *just once* and place it in a box your self. He took advantage of that, selling some, also placing many around Atlantic. It kind of pissed me off because he was saturating the market, but whatever, he found the spawner.
    He passed away, and I was ready to stop playing UO once and for all, so before I quit I made sure to sabotage the secret duplicate marble spot by manipulating the spawner location with house placement.
    So if you have any of those Marble Columns/GM items in a box still, hold on to them, as there will never ever be another way to get them. I had quite a few in my bank, but deleted them right before I quit, besides like 1 which I sold a couple years ago for very little.

    My proof is this picture of the process for the orc sign, which you wont find anywhere else. I forget which shard I smuggled that sign from...but sorry all the same for pillaging some of your shard history.
    I'm sure no one cares at all, but I was bored and someone MAY find it interesting, especially the owners of the items now. Bye.

    Edit: to be even more specific, now that I recall. What you did was place a classic style home that had only like 2 front steps or so, like say a small stone house. you lined the item up next to the stairs, placed the house, then converted the house to a plot so the stairs expanded onto the item. Then you could lock down the item and do the trick.

    i apologize, if you decided against posting ill delete mine as well. i just think its very interesting information especially since i like this sort of thing. but the metal boxes are not choppable? it was only the items that you could "pick up once" that could be put in wooden boxes or bags? (able to be chopped)

    At the time, the metal boxes were indeed choppable. So when you chopped the box with, lets say, a marble column in it, you could place it anywhere you wanted like brit bank roof, and it would not be able to be picked up by anyone. You could get them into your backpack even, and insure them, but they weighed 255 stones. (if I recall correctly).

    The two-story statue was in a wooden box that wasn't choppable though. That was actually the item I first developed the bug strat with. Found it outside vesper east exit, and decided to see what would happen if I was able to get it on my stairs. What do you know, I was able to lock it down. I paged a GM and asked them to remove it from my storage box for me, and place it in a box. I had not yet figured out that I should just let the houses go idoc to get the rare items. A admin actually did it for me with a lot of skepticism, and said they wouldn't do it again if I chopped it.


    To explain a little more into the *pick up only once* thing, for whatever reason, I never figured out why, when server came back up and a new marble column had respawned on the steps, it was able to be dragged only once into a container of your choice, or if you had the stamina, you could run with it across the land until you want to place it somewhere. But once you let go of it, it was locked in place permanently.
