    Is it safe to lock down a chest and set access to "anyone" so all can view? Just want to be sure there is not a bug to take items that are locked down...

    Please let me know if there is any risk?

    Thanks!

    I have done this before and no issue, when a box is locked down instead of secured, the items are stationary in there, unable to pilfer em out even move them even by the owner.

    Never any real assurance though in UO, against exploiters.

    I have had a bell collection, and other memoribilia on display at QZ's museum on Chesapeake. With all the bells, there were times I lifted up the 1 tile goza mats and used them for a shelf, with locked bells down and lifted them up, above the mat, in rows of 4 high going straight across entire walls on the bell floor. Other times I used stone tables and displayed as many bells as one stone table as I could on plain granite tables.

    In the end I found it simpler and safer to just lock the bells on the floor as is, and lift each one up, stacks of 4 or more high, all around the floor the bells were displayed upon, atop white floor tiles. And any white bell I had I displayed atop a black goza so the bright white bell showed up well, usually in the center of the room on it's own.

    Good luck ! :)
     
  8. Hey QZ, is the museum still on Chessy? It seems I remember seeing a post that you tore it down.

    NO ! I took it down eventually.

    My museum was unique and different. It began with a display of ORDER AND CHAOS shields. From there it moved on up to UO expansion packs, for newer players to learn HOW we got savages into UO, or HOW we discovered plague lord beasts, the plant system and beyond. My museum was more about the years of Ultima Online for newer players to learn when and how via UO story lines how we got everything we have today in Ultima Online. A dev. team member even signed my guest book, one, once, thankin me, just happy to see a customer book written entitled *They build our world* written by Queen Zen over there, about THEM and how they built our world over the years of Ultima Online.

    Thus I began with the Order and Chaos shields, tales of Lord Blackthorn and Lord British atop a chessboard with Sherry the Mouse tellin her tale of watching the two men play chess together. From there it went on up to Lord Blackthorn's Revenge the creation of....trammel, solen ant queens savages and orcs at war, the plant system and beyond.

    The bells display were on the holiday anniversary floors which displayed 5th and 6th anniv items, prior holiday items, even an ancient...lump of coal that neg. karma players got ages ago for a christmas in UO.

    Unfortunately the only ones whom appreciated it most were really OLD players, and a few new ones...the other new ones were more captivated by the pixel crack displays of fancier stuffs in other museums esp. Luna on Chesapeake. Thus I closed it down, feeling somewhat jaded yes, that all that matters to some folks is not UO history over the years of Ultima Online but what pixel crack the dev. team gives us instead. :(

    To me the true treasure of Ultima Online is what it was, and how we got to where it is today *for better or worse* it's history is awesome to me especially as an old vet UO player cuz once upon a time ...we did not even have a lost lands, nor a trammel, nor savages nor the plant system, nor jukas nor golems...HOW we came to acquire all these over the years is richer to me regarding UO than.......the pixel crack. :)

    Sooooooooooo, let em love their items, I will love UO's history ! Museum closed ! But I still keep the guest book of those whom signed it and spoke well of the job I did do on that museum bringing tears to their old UO eyes and thanking me for the memories of UO which, I displayed.
