    Still can't figure out the Globe Trick... Maybe you could come to Pacific and School me?

    I spent about an hour on TC1 with Mutau trying to get it to work... no luck...

    Oooh, boy.

    Let's start with making arches. I can't figure out how to get good-looking arches going in half the tile-sets including the wood and plaster, and those that do have arches, like the gargoyle ruins, are sometimes mismatched or missing pieces (gargoyle set is missing the corner arch and single pole to connect the corners). Or how about a marble roof? I tried making a temple the other day and the only white roof we have is the zento ceramic tile roof, which is luna-white and not marble-white. Can you figure out a way to dye roof and wall tiles? :D

    ...oh wait, you meant actual do-able things that are just really hard? Uh... lemme check my list and get back to you! :eyes:

    (I do actually have some ideas, I just can't recall them right now)

    You can "kind of" customize them. Rubble and those new teleposters opened up new doors :)

    I would like to see grass, water, snow, dirt, and wooden floor designed goza mats.

    I picked goza mats because I don't like the way the carpet highlights.
    Make gozas stack able

    oh dont get me started becuase i would not stop on this one lets just say i think that house building should be more like sims game. being able to make diff shap walls. you pick a angle then pick the wall type you want it to look like. thats my dream uo. if you look at some of the walls in the list you have angles for some walls and then other dont even have the diff sizes as others.

    hum this thread didn't really go where I was hoping it would... The point was to give me ideas of deco that had never been done before and might not be possible even not to suggest things to be added to uo... I don't have that kinda power... Yet... *Rubs hands together and cackles like a crazy person*

    I've never been able to get waterfalls down so they are an impossible for me.

    That's simple. Kidnap a dev.
    On a more realistic note, talk with your EM.

    In the mean time you'll need quick fingers, it decays in 3 hours.

    With a new placement tool, would love to be able to move a deco item along the x-axis (laterally) 1/2 or 1/3 tile to the right and left someday.

    As to potentially impossible dreams, I think most of us would be happy with getting the missing tiles from our current housing sets, as a start. :D

    Also, anyone who has used HouseBuilder or just spends time looking at buildings in towns, and the landscape in various parts of the game, would probably like at least some of those currently game landscape only eye candy pieces, such as treasure piles, marble benches, etc. to be available to the house deco menu. :thumbup1:

    Oh I thought you wanted a list of ideas for housing deco to turn in to the devs.

    Me too! Maybe you should start a thread on "What hasn't been done before in UO deco?".

    Ditto-ing the waterfall idea. Can't get multi-story waterfalls to work, ever.

    Also: Build a sushi bar! I had a vague idea of how to do this, but I'd like your take on it. Think chinese buffet-style table with the glass over it. Perfect for a Zento restaurant!

    Also thinking I'd like a tutorial for making a curved waterway or path. I have done it relatively successfully in the past with dozens of plants, but it'd be nice to see how to do it better without wasting half my house lockdowns on hiding the square edges of a pond...

    Typically you put 2 waterfall tiles per floor. One behind the other, it's an illusion.
