    There's a house on my shard that is decorated and designed as a giant penis. I think it's hilarious but there's a group of players trying to page a gamemaster on it. Luckily it's in fel so I've been fightning them off.

    Is this against the TOS? Should I post a screenshot of it?

    I'm rather curious as to what it looks like.

    I'm not sure about the Ultima TOS, but it would be inappropriate to post pictures here on Stratics. If people really want to see it, post shard/coordinates and they can go look all they want.

    You could post it in the Stratics (main forum level, not UO Stratics) "off Topic: No Holds Barred" forum that is restricted to 18 and over, and let people look for the ost (no linking directly from here).

    I am hesitant to believe that uo house tiles could be subverted to the degree that the picture would be considered unacceptable tbh.

    You don't know what one looks like by now?! :p


    Haha ok, I want to see this house too. It actually sounds like a fun design challenge! I always thought those runed switches looked like little swimmers (esp the frostwood ones). I can't be the only one who's thought that either... :thumbsup:

    Trying to remember - who was it that put a beehive on top of a rectangular rubble pillar, and it ended up looking like a ejaculation in progress (complete with the design fluting looking like a foreskin?)....

    Finally something real to fight for in UO!

    Some of you may remember the Battle of the SinTax, long ago.
    I guess this might be called the Battle of the Bulge.

    I always did think those custom round bar tables looked like boobs. Maybe I just have a dirty mind? :p

    I once put together a strip club concept house fashioned into a large pair of breasts. I used copper granite with bucklers for the nipples. It was a pretty decent 3 story set of boobs. I didnt think it would last too long so down it went.

    *sighs*

    The most creative UO home I ever designed was trying to copy the Egyptian Sphinx in sandstone tiles, but alas in the end the house looked just like Garfield the cat ! At least it made folks laugh...but a lion with human head, ala Sphinx of Egypt, it did not quite measure up to. :) It was pretty spiffy if I HAD INTENDED to recreate a house design to look like Garfield though. :)

    As for that design UO is not ADULT only rated. In summertime you also have folks kids playing more so than usual, and some kids have too much time on their hands and their idea of PKing may be to get our accts. in trouble

    Plus UO is multi ethic, multi cultural spanning the globe of assorted ages playing soooo if one values their acct. might be better to watch our house designs, or cussing in game, etc. especially during summertime. There can be folks of other cultures around the world find something offensive we may not. There can be 6 yr.olds looking at our words actions house designs too. We never know the RL ages/cultures etc. of anyone in their pixel forms, as a customer of EA UO.

    Some folks also like to page just for their own entertainment too with too much time on their hands their idea of pKing is sometimes trying to pk others EA UO Accts. So tis usually best if we do not push the envelope to place any of our accts. in any kinds of danger ever, even remotely, as best as we can do.

    Worst case scenario - it will get removed, I promise no infraction will be given.

    don't think so, Sarsmi, I've often wondered about some of the graphics.... for instance, it wasn't so long ago that I finally stopped blushing when giant serpents died........ :blushing:

    :lol: You guys crack me up! Some of those bottle graphics are...suggestive, too. I'd rather not say what they're suggestive of, but it made me laugh when the came out with fireworks that resembled something you'd find in someone's bedroom drawer. Bad enough the game already has whips and lots of leatherware. Adultima Online anyone? :p

    I am surprised that no one has yet stated that it is in fact illegal to design your house in such a way. This was clearly stated when customizable housing was released. Of course this will be a judgement call for the Gamemaster to decide.

    I can't believe I am about to type this, but since its mostly Stratics staff/mods/admin contributing to this thread.[lol] I always thought the neck of a dragon looked a bit like a male appendage right down to the vein on the underside.

    Artists can be weird like that... The University of Kentucky official mascot image, used on all their merchandise, had a penis for a tongue for over a decade, because the artist did it on a dare, and when it was accepted by the university, was too afraid to bring it up....

    Then, of course, there was the infamous "castle" art from a 90s disney movie (The little mermaid?), that had to be fixed before the movie was released on VHS/DVD...

    Post a picture of this supposed house, or don't bring the issue up on a forum of mostly-anonymous whiners!

    Could never be as bad as this house, its outrageous . this person got banned and house destroyed with the quickness. but it shows how creative some can be with customized housing. I snatched this pic from a forum where the poster was bragging about "his new design" please dont click if your easy offended by 9/11 stuff. I dont want the flames just showing how creative people can be with custom housing and its not x rated.

    You're a bad person for showing that and the maker should be banned from the internet for being a horrible person.

    I want to know how you turn Trees into stumps. Is their an option in UO for that?

    and huh. When I looked at the house I didn't even think 911 I saw a cool flying machine and dead bodies all over but until someone said 911 then did I see it.

    I guess that it just wouldn't have caught my mind to think someone would do something that horrible.

    Lord Gareth, the picture you are referring to illustrates an illicit client hack.

    If it had been posted directly on the forum it would have been removed, it shouldn't be linked to either, but since the time of posting (from my point of view) was around 3am this morning, I wasn't around to request that it be removed.

    I wouldn't know how they do it, And there is no option for EA servers, like I said I took it of a forum where someone was bragging about it. Like that kid who was bragging about his duping sometime back whos trees were stumps.

    Have you ever placed a piece(1) of unstacked 'deadwood' in front of a Vendor(preferably with darker skin to match that of the deadwood) and raised it to an 'appropriate' height? All I can say is that I wouldn't consider 'dead' to be a very appropriate description for it!
