    Well i THP posted on UOHALL a while back asking for a full housing sweep/scan of all the old unpaid classic houses that litter our UO lands... well u know what olde classic private houses might have in em.....mmm... well fingers crosses hey...lots of rares... and guess what...theres keeps and castles too that have been unpaid for and unused for years too....WHAT goodies lie within the walls of these huge old relic accounts....Iam kinda of hoping that the devs will make it a week of Fallers , maybe drip feed us a few each day...AN EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED FOR SURE!!!!

    Bring it on....Really hope Jeremy delivers this one like she promised....

    Just FYI, we've got some of our senior engineers looking into the "housing scan" issue. I don't have an ETA or anything, but it's definitely on the table.

    Me too. But if they have rares in them I like them a bit more. Shame I would not be able to get to any of them. Work, GF, and school keep me pretty busy. I get short spurts of times randomly that I get to play.

    This is why devs hardly ever say anything. People read into their words more than what's really there.
    "We will look into it" doesn't mean there's ever going to be another great fall.

    THE STATEMENT...

    Hardly reads looking into it/ maybe...... DOES IT!!!... Reads the ''definitely'' bit again on the table...... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  6. I have runebooks full of marks that are over 6 years old of houses of old banned and inactive accounts.

    Don't hold your breath for a second if you honestly expect them to focus on these old old old banned/inactive accounts that have laid the lands unfallen for 5-6-7plus years.

    And "on the table" means "being discussed" as in... looking into the possibility.

    He's referring to the ownerless houses that litter the shards, they are all old style pre-trammel houses and they sure didn't get cleaned up in the big fall.

    UO:R which gave us trammel was in 2000, and custom houses showed up in 2003 so they've been around for somewhere between 5-8+ years. Almost all are in Fel (I can only think of one in Trammel off the top of my head and that's a log cabin) and several are placed in places modern housing rules wouldn't allow. One I've seen has the hand 'cursor' locked down in it next to a singing ball. He's not the only one with runebooks full. [​IMG]

    No offence, but you sound like a vulture waiting as an old elephant lumbers into sight lol. Some thoughts are maybe best kept to oneself [​IMG]

    While I do IDOCs occasionally and I realise they do sometimes have great items, I doubt many old players would like someone dancing over their old treasures.

  11. Thank you claudia. This is where you find the old school idoc'ers and the ones who have only done it since they revamped the decay system years ago.

    I have books, and books FULL of felluca/trammel houses that are of old banned/inactive accounts.

    Anyone who did idoc's before the revamped decay system, and the 1st big shard fall day years ago is well aware of these. If you werent around back in the day youd have 0 way of identifying these unless an old idoc'er told you how to identify them from the sign.

    Claudia is absolutly correct, confirming my statement. And you can ask J.C the Builder as well. He will vouch that there are probably hundreds, if not more, between all the shards. That are well over 5 years old, and never going to fall if they havent been dropped yet.


    ***I'll be a nice guy and give away the tell tale signs of an old banned/inactive house that will never fall.

    1. Its a classic design.
    2. The sign looks like this: A House Sign
    Name: An Unnamed House
    This is A Private House

    3. It is private like the sign says, but the steps can still be stepped on by anybody, and all items can be seen inside as a result. (In the past, and Im sure still today, although I havent checked in years. Despite being private, you can go ghost, and walk inside to scan the loot around).
    4. Its been sitting there untouched like that for 5-6-7 plus years. (This you would have to have been doing idocs BEFORE the revamps to the system, which very very very few people were doing - back when it took like over a week for a house to go from Like New to IDOC status).



    Ha yea, and lastly. OSI deffinatly ran their mouths time and time again about these particular houses I am speaking off before they redid the decay system. Saying time and time again they would drop those houses. This was over 5 years ago, prob more like 6 years now. The problem is with all the changes and improvements (so to say, even though they ruined idocs), old old houses on already dead and banned accounts got overlooked in the new system of decay.

    If they didnt get these houses to fall in the 1st big fall day. And trust me, they missed them all. Then they will never fall.

    for someone who claims to always know what theyre talking about you sure are wrong a lot, anyone who does idocs could have correctly answered that... its common knowledge and you managed to get it wrong.
     
  14. "ummm, I gotta call BS on that one bud, they killed off all the old inactive accounts with the first big house fall....you might wana go back and read up on that."

    See this is what happens when people try and claim theyve been doing idocs, or rares forever. When really most just got involved after x sharding, which is only a few years old. After there became a global economy, and more fame/profit from collecting/house placing.

    I certainly wont be "going back and reading up" on anything, since I have my information from actually experiencing what I talk about.

    You might be able to read extensively on rares and act like some sort of life long expert. But idocs there most certainly are tons of old trade secrets and information you wont find written down on websites to rip info off of and pawn them off as your own knowledge/experiences.
