Devs, after SA is released when will houses be able to be placed in Ter Mur?
good question, i remember when SE came out and people were waiting to place in tokuno and then all of a sudden they let everyone, and i missed out cause i was looking for the new stealables :/
I believe they are still determining WHERE housing will be allowed.
Please say nowhere, the land is really nice right now, and I don't want to see it ruined by a bunch of player-owned houses. And it's NOT like UO is so full of players that they need to be able to place houses there.
too much empty land if u cant place there
I'd love to see it so housing in Ter Mur would have to be "unlocked" by some sort of shard-wide quest.
Housing was open on the closed shard and you could place anywhere, including next to the bank! Then it was changed to the large open grass areas but you can't seem to place now its went open beta.
And hopefully it remains that way.
Recalling and gating in, fine. Having houses there? No. We already have 4 facets full of space for housing.
Fix the Zento bug, open more keep and castle spots in either Tram/Fel or Malas (looooota open spots in Malas!) by flattening land bumps or letting some areas go (like that huge one by brit gate) They let reserved keeps and castles go in Trinny swamps, why not elsewheres?
You open spots in the new areas....the other 3 facets will be ghost towns. (some already are). There are simply not enough players to justify new housing areas in Tel Mur (hell, they never even used up Malas ie: Connected islands)
I say don't open any new spots for castle keep placements anywhere... thats just stupid.. if you dont have a castle or keep too bad so sad.. if you want one so bad you can get one by some mean or another, keep everything the way it is and leave tel mur house free.
I wish changes to house rules, allow keeps and castles in Malas, it's only a stupid house land anyway.
Then make players unable to place a new keep or castle in Britainnia, Tokuno and Ter Mur.
I would add that if house placement was allowed in Britannia it would have to be classic style and not a Borg Cube.
for god sake dont allow a second luna with houses next to bank, best is not to allow houses there at all.
I don't agree in that, I had seen alot great house design on Siege. I like customizing houses even when some need better skills in house bulding.
Make a few "classic" design in size 18x18, 10x18, 18x10, 14x18 and 18x14 for the ones who sucks in house building.
He is talking about MY cube... for sure.
Most ugly thing you can imagine...
Getting back to the ORIGINAL reason for my post, can we get some word from Chrissay or any other DEV as to when they expect to open house placement in Ter Mur?
I like this idea.
This is a great thread to use my "We'll release more info about this at a later time" card.
Thanks for the response Draconi!!
better idea for housing:
gm shall fill the areas with random type of houses, every house is infested by powerfull creatures, if you slay all, you'll earn the house key. Double click the house key to own the house
the creature must be all paragon and the difficulty based on the house type.
for example a castle must have something like a paragon harrower that spawn with paragon tentacles XD
I looked for housing areas in the open beta a bit but didn't find any. It was kinda tricky just staying alive which was good. New things to learn and all.
Didn't make it to the underground since I'm not all that brave so I was kind of hoping new housing was available down there in some caves.
Housing is Ok anywhere, as long as it is monitored.
If there was a larger space between current buildings in Luna it would not look as bad, its a shame that building "use" can be policed, nothing worse than 40 vendor shops and 30 of them are useless, make the buildings in/near cities useable by the public or they self destuct in 14 days.
I DARE you guys to make it so only 7x7 can be placed and you can ONLY use Gargoyle house tiles.
Actually I like the second part. Gargoyle house tiles only. You want UO to look good make it match up. Start with the Gargoyle land! Someone walks out of the city and first house they see is a 18x18 bright marble house.... they gunna say W.T.F? That makes no sense.
I believe that more housing is not even need on MOST shards. There's maybe 2 shards that would actually benefit from new housing.
I think limited additional land for housing, Maybe one or two places for a castle, or keeps, but other than that NO keeps and castles. I'm very tempted to say limit placing in the area to only the smaller houses as well.
Also, I am on the "No more luna cluster****s" bandwagon.
^^^ I totally agree with this ^^^
Well, it's been a week Draconi...any info to release to us on:
1.) IF we will be able to place houses?
2.) IF so, WHERE will we be able to place houses?
3.) IF so WHERE at and HOW big?
Thanks for any updates.
Not impatient at all. I'm just wondering what's up.
If you would have been at the Townhall in Seattle 3 years ago (2006) when KR was supposed to be being released soon, Draconi point blank came out and said that "there will be housing available and there will be NEW housing sizes as well". Well, 3 years, KR has gone by the way side and I'm still waiting patiently to find out about any and all new housing options that might become available to us.
it should act like an IDOC has fallen with only random sized plots able to be placed and at the same time it becomes active all burning plots in luna and everywhere should do the same !! that will keep thge scriptors busy !!!
Anyone who has seen my place knows I probably have a thing for Borg Cubes... that said - even a Borg Cube can look great if done right!
If anyone doubts that, I'd be happy to show off the place and let you decide...
We need pictures
I'd love to take pictures - but:
1.) I am beyond horrible with that stuff...
2.) It's a Borg invasion fleet (8 houses) so it's hard to get into one picture...
There's a shot in the Home and Castle Forum that Sarsmi took a while back - but the place has expanded quite a bit since then.
If you want to see it - log on to Atlantic with a new character, then head to Umbra. Take the road west from town and head to the west shore of the Malas lake. It is right by the large Yew tree on the lake shore (hard to miss it). If you prefer to go by the coordinates, simply head to 0,0 0,0 in Malas and it is just downscreen.
Bring Back Tents!!!!!
They can't be refreshed and even with a vendor inside they fall... hehe
Great gold sink!...make them 1M and last a week
I've ran past these houses and stoped for a look and they do look impressive the way they flow together. I just never put the name to stratics to figure out it was you. You must have done alot of wheelin' & dealin' to get so many in the same area.
