I want to see your house!!

Discussion in 'UO Chesapeake' started by Ransom_of_BiC, Jun 14, 2010.

  1. I sure would like to see some screenies! I think I'm most interested in parts/rooms/floors of your home that are your favorite for whatever reason. Be sure to tell me WHY it's your favorite.

    Copy of brewery mug.JPG

    This is my brewery from the outside. It's my favorite because of the frosty beer mug I built on the roof, and another one that's in the pattern in the roof tiles which is visible on the map.

    Lucky timing on the screenshot to catch my character looking at the giant mug.
     
  3. Beni, that is freakin' FANTASTIC!

    Truly, truly cool.

    Look for the hole in the wall outside Makoto, north exit, it's on the road. North-eastish maybe.

    I've always tried to make my homes as cozy as possible. I love decorating with dark reds and golds. This is a screenshot of my "living room" and bedroom. I especially love the curtains and fireplace!

    This next screenshot is my pride and joy. I know I don't even need to say why! *Note the Evil Idol!* :)

    OMG. Okay. Listen, bells and I have a history. Over the years, it just got to be too much. I'm a recovered bell collector, and I have no intention of relapsing. Don't tempt me!

    (...but if you find any white bells for sale, let me know... rolleyes:)

    Are those gozas you used for the red floors? How did you do them and have the decorative carpet show on top? I tried something similar before and couldn't figure it out.

    those are not gozas. they are a carpet quest you can do in ter mur. you have to deliver some rare wool to the quest master and than u can buy the carpet pieces to put down. the nice part about them is they donot take up lock down space in the house, rather u double click them to hold them in place.


    question. newb question really. how does one take screenshots? is there an application that is needed?

    thanks.
     
  17. Just hit the "print screen" button on your keyboard, then open up something like paint or something like that and hit 'paste'.

    This is an outside view of one of my houses. It would be hard to explain everything that I like about this house, but I’ll point a few out. I designed the steps to seem more like a hill rather than steps (In the CC you seem to bounce up and down as if you were climbing over bolders or irregular steps). I also tried to copy my first small house that I had in game at the top of the hill (a 7x7 wood & plaster).

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull.jpg

    This pic is level 3. Not much new. Just the inside of the small house on the hill and an underground spider lair (the spider webs show through the ceiling so that I get double the deco from them).

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull3.jpg

    The second level is a run down living quarters that takes advantage of the Heritage items that I had wanted. There is also a room with an alchemist that appears to have had a rather ill blackrock accident/explosion (I placed the skeleton and body parts in a way to make it look like the meat still held to some of the body’s appendages with the core flesh having been completely obliterated).

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull2.jpg

    The bottom level seems to be rather... morbid... and quite fun to build/deco. This little torture chamber comes complete with an iron maiden, a guillotine (that appears to have been used), a stretching table, multiple jail cells, and a demon summoning room (protectively runed off, though one unlucky soul seemed to have not stayed completely outside of the runes), and a burial/coffin room.

    [​IMG]

    I chose to take night pics to add to the ambiance and to display certain lighting effects.

    Enjoy!

    Dude, your house is baller! I'm a sucker for house customization. Trammy at heart... very nicely done!

    And Animocity, to confirm, the floor is covered with red gozas and the gold carpets are from the gargoyle quest.

    I have two houses I consider special for different reasons.....

    [​IMG]

    This one in Luna is open to the public can be viewed by anyone, stop in. It's special because well I placed it, and everyone knows how hard that is to do especially in Luna.


    [​IMG]


    Then there is this one. It's special because it is one of if not the last of it's style on Chessy. You can't place houses with the half forge anymore....haven't been able to since about 1999. It was given to me, I took it expressly for the purpose of keeping this rare house style from disappearing from Chessy forever.

    They were an option used to be you could buy different house types with some deco add-ons already in place. There was one for Smiths, one for Tailors, and I think there was a Thieves den as well that came with a pick pocket dip but I'm not 100% on that. They stopped putting the deeds out some time not too long after the add-on deeds were released.

    Sooo... Ransom... the screenie of your house is... where?
     
  27. ...never going to be posted. :) Just kidding. Sort of...

    My house also is our guildhouse and is therefore a 'hub' when people want to fight in the Compound. It's a giant box (I would NEVER have anything other than an 18x18) with 2 completely empty floors, and an empty roof. That being said, I have a single floor in my home which is decorated according to my taste. There are many things I'd still be interested in having, but have been unable to aquire, i.e. those curtains, mats, etc. so it's a work in progress.

    I'll take a screenie when I get home, but you will be disappointed at my lack of creativity and supreme lack of decorating skill.
     
  28. This is my 'personal' floor. Nothing fancy, to say the very least.

    The other is just a shot of the bottom floor of my place. Big, open, with several exits.
