    I was wondering where to get a house builder tool. where u can create houses and all that without having to be on uo, like a example project thing. HouseBuilder only works for normal UO players and i play private servers.. so i need it for all. please help.

    You can get it here.
    But I will not re-write the program to work on private servers.
    If it works great.
    If not then I am sorry.

    Umm isn't that a 3rd party program? If it is then its not approved by UO hence would be against the rules to use it.

    This program has been around for many years. EA/OSI knows about it. All it does is refrence the UO graphics the same way InSideUO does.
    It s not mess with the data stream at all.
    Hence EA/OSI will not do anything about this program.
    I even think a few of them use it..

    If it's not used ingame what is the point of using it? Just customize and build. All you do is waste time with an extra program changing walls floors doors etc. Spend the same time in game doing that. Then in the end you don't need to copy your design to ingame.

    You may not have a house plot to play around with, or are playing around with ideas for someone else, may not be able to customize your own house because it will mess up deco etc. There are lots of reasons to use the program. It also has access to tiles that you don't have ingame so it's fun to play around with that way.

    This is the main reason it is around.
    To make a hosue of your dreams offline. So you will not mess up your real house.
    Once you have the house the way you want it. Save it out as an image file JPG, BMP.

    If you decide to make the house. Just bring up your image and start making your real house.

    Less time building your house in-game. And more time gaming..

    If you choose not to use it. That is your choice.
    It is freeware after all....
