    Bank Renovation: Designers Wanted!
    Joanne Laroche
    18 Dec 2008 17:19:34 EST

    With the new year, Sosaria’s main bank is in high need of a serious makeover. We are looking for talented designers and decorators to submit their original ideas on a great new look for the West Britain Bank. This is a permanent new look so do not focus on just a winter theme!
    Contest Rules:


    You must take a screenshot of Britain Bank and decorate it with existing UO art.
    You can copy/paste existing art from elsewhere in the game on top of the bank area. You may optionally use InsideUO to grab tileart directly from UO.
    Your submission screenshot must be a JPG and for e-mail submissions must be no larger than 800x600. (For screenshots larger than 800x600 please upload it online - we suggest using a free image hosting site and send us the link to your image.)
    There will be one winner per shard, you may only win once.
    To qualify, entries must include your name and shard.
    You must have an active Ultima Online account to participate.
    Enter as often as you wish, but only one submission per e-mail.
    Submission for banks other than West Britain Bank will be dismissed.
    All entries become the property of Mythic Entertainment.


    Added 01/27/09: Please make sure to keep your bank designs to one story/level and to respect the current layout of the bank (do not move walls!). While we appreciate the designs with multiple stories/levels and different layouts we're not accepting them at this time.



    Prizes:

    One winner per shard. Added 01/27/09: If we do not receive any acceptable winning entries for a shard, our team will provide the renovations for that shard.


    The winners will have the bank on their respective shard redecorated on both facets according to their design. A plaque will also be placed by the bank identifying the winning designer.




    All winning entries will be posted here on the UOHerald once the judging has been finalized.


    How to Enter:

    When you are ready to submit your entry, you must include the following:

    Your Character Name:
    Shard:
    E-mail address:
    Description of your renovation (optional)
    Your screenshot (or the link to where your screenshot is hosted):

    Send all the above information to: [email protected]

    This is open to all active Ultima Online subscribers. Entries must be received by midnight Eastern Time on Sunday, February 1st, 2009 to qualify.

    That would be incorrect. There are some clarifications.

    Ok, so...... they want people to submit/ resubmit designs but we only have until Feb 1? Less than a week??Are you kidding me? I was not totally happy with my design, but I don't think I can make any significant changes by Sunday. :yell:

    I guess I'll see what I can do.

    That was removed, to avoid people copying other people's ideas.

    Are the people who submitted designs the first time going to submit again? I am trying to redo my designs bc I wasn't happy with the first one. What do you guys want for our bank? Someone suggested a guillotine as a public execution area, but I know someone from siege already included that. I don't want to include it in mine too and get accused of copying. However, I will include it if that design in NOT being re-submitted, bc I think it is a good idea.

    I can't figure out how to change the color of objects. There are thousands of hues in InsideUo but I can't figure out how to use them to dye objects. If I do.......*mwuahahahah* Purple bank it is!!

    Shouldn't the guillotine be installed inside the front door?

    If it was inside, how people can watch the public executions? Now Patty can put some purple flowers around it
