    Wilki just mentioned making a thread here for items that we would like to see added to the craftable menu. Blackstaffs was mentioned in the question.

    Blackstaffs


    Me personally, I'd love to see bear and deer masks added as well as savage masks. It would be nice to be able to have exceptional masks of these sorts, be able to imbue them, then enhance them.

    Man asking me this question is like asking me what i want for my birthday. I never have an answer to that question. But at random times I'll see something I want...

    Ok maybe if I think very very hard, it's tough tho! We just got an awesome expansion with so much new content it's like eating a whole birthday cake then someone offering you a cupcake afterwards.

    *thinks*

    It would be nice if we could make the containers you can buy at the prov's out of leather. Bags, backpacks, pouches. Maybe not pouches, I know there are some event item special hue pouches, so that could be bad.

    People love those gold strongboxes, maybe make those out of the different metals, or just make the gold one craftable, or add in a silver one too (or maybe gold, silver, copper and iron hued made with the stealable/takeable wires from the bucs barrels and other smithy shops?)

    Maybe add in more of the craftables from the custom menu - specifically the bar table type stuff, So we can have round bar tables etc.

    Oh! craftable teleport add ons placeable only by the house owner or co-owner (for classic homes). You get a choice of 5 styles maybe and have to make two of them and they will link to each other when both are placed.

    Ok thats all I got.

    My list of things that should be craftable:

    Masonry

    1 - Larger stone tables (1x4, 1x5, maybe 1x6); don't need to be wider since they tile perfectly on whatever axis they're crafted on.

    2 - Stone benches (1x2, 1x3, 1x4) which you should also then make so that people sit down on them.

    3 - (maybe in Tinkering) statue engraving tools.

    Carpentry/Tailoring

    - Beds without covers
    - Beds with covers covering everything

    Carpentry
    - Dressars (cherry and normal)
    - Vanities (I know heritage tokens, but yeah...)
    - Display cases (in a variety of sizes)
    - The various house signs as just plain signs
    - Sign engraving tool (or just have them double-click to change what they say)
    - Could we get an artist to make the North and East facings for the Magincia thrones, please, and further, could we please STOP introducing chairs without all four facings?
    - Wooden benches
    - Wooden tables longer than they are
    - Flat wooden tables (they look finely sanded)
    - Matching wooden benches

    Tinkering
    - House sign hangers

    [Masonry Wishlist]
    Mineable marble; craftable (alchemist?) sandstone with sand...
    - Marble and sandstone tables in the varieties above
    - Marble and sandstone benches in the varieties above
    (I understand the marble stuff is "server birth" garbage, but that's a bad reason not to make it available.)
    - Not exactly craftable, but statue engraving tools should be able to engrave pedastals.

    I think that about does my wish list... I tried to stick with things that are functional as decorative items that people might like for their homes.

    I'd like to see house walls craftable with masonry... Only the styles for the classic houses, lockable for make new rooms...

    mmmmm... My vote would go for ...

    Display Cases

    Dressable/Equipable Manikins/Dress Forms - I put togather a design which I might list here if I can figure how to do that spoiler/hiding function for people that don't want to read it. If I post it w/o the hide option then this post would be way too long.

    Caster themed off-handed item slot equipable items. For Casters that use shields for the mods but would prefer to not have big bulky blocks in front of them. Items: Crystal ball, off-handed non-melee wand, misc magical symbols(a rosery beads looking graphic, or the ankh pendant backpack art having from the chars off-hand, ect)

    Reagent bag - equipable in the quiver/cloak slot. Mods similar to quivers, like +10% Fire damage spells, and an arty with +5% DCI or something to equate to the QoI.

    Cupcakes!

    Orc helms
    Tribal masks (both)

    Why not simplify it?

    everything in game should be craftable by the players, not to replace current items in game, but to supplement. Take the fountain that you can get with a heritage token for an example. Make that craftable in different colors of stone, while not removing the original just make that color (normal granite) none craftable.

    Forgot something in masonry...
    We need the male busts as well. We can do the female posed, the angel, the surfer, and the pegasus... Please give us both facings of the male bust.

    And if you really felt in a giving mood, please add female busts as well (and avoid the obvious puns). Obviously this would require an art asset, but it would be a nice addition.

    And maybe a tombstone engraving tool.

    I disagree with this idea. It would make the original fountain or vanity less special than it is. I personally bought more heritage tokens for large amounts of gold (okay, only like 500k per) in order to get certain ones. I think it's a bad idea to make items that were token or specials craftable.

    The fat pillar candles with no metal base, we have thread, we have wax, the client has pots of wax in the graphics, but tinkers can't make candles. To add to candle making, the solstice candles without ribbons would rock socks!

    How about the checkered shirt? This thing has been in the graphics as long as I can remember and it has never been used. I think it's kinda neat looking! :)

    #1 Display cases that display either gems or jewelry with the latter functioning as an actual searchable jewelry box.

    Eyeglasses/Spectacles, whatever you want to call them.

    Assuming they're not already craftable through some SA jiggery-pokery.

    Monacles, too!

    crafting tables (carpentry shops, etc) I've always wanted some for a workshop.

    boats
    plow
    glasses (special or not)

    chopping block (I believe nujelm has one)
    dishing stump
    various meats and foodstuffs that currently are only purchasable
    most leather bags
    crystal balls
    books, writable and not

    I completely agree about the fountain. It looks very out of place to have a white marble? fountain in a sandstone house or if you want an evil look and so on. I would also love to see the marble benches made craftable and in different materials/colors. Haven't read the thread fully so I won't add anything else yet so as to not duplicate suggestions.

    One thing I will mention, regardless if it's been said, is there are some housing tiles that should be added. I know they aren't crafted, but there's something wrong when the 9th anniversary tiles are greyed out and brand new gargoyle tilesets are available. Also, please consider adding the window corner pieces.

    If you really want tot see the carp profession freakin explode... allow them to create securable containers that can be individually friended.

    If anyone makes the various existing 'mask' types craftable, I'd appreciate if they could also look at adding a few more - kitsune mask for my Ninja would be appropriate, most of the other 'intelligent' races having masks would be handy for all sorts of RP reasons, as well as just looking good (dragon-kin, anyone?).

    All of these things plus need to fix clubs, crooks so they can be enhanced because not all of them can be...

    Also want to be able to make and enhance:
    Bearmasks
    Deermasks
    orc masks
    tribal masks
    pitchforks
    and pickaxes should be able to be craftable with other metals giving them all the weapon properties they have when they spawn and there should be some tinkering tools that are runics...

    And for the love of all of us who enjoy home deco and design need to please make most all the furniture face all 4 directions.... this includes beds, chairs, dressers, shelves, cabinets, chests, and countless other objects.

    Do NOT be lazy... if you have something awesome in mind remember it has 4 sides and we'd like to see all 4 of them.

    While your at it ..... lets add things to the list of items that can be mounted using the taxidermy kit!

    I want to mount an ice wyrm, demon, pixie, fairies, dryads, satyr, fairy dragon, ....

    how about making a taxidermy kit that can "stuff" things, like fairy dragons, deer, cougars, polar bears, bears, cranes, and 100's of other creatures! This could be one heck of an awesome gold sink! Pay say a million for the kit to do it and it have it use one of those cool statue pedestals from the puzzle quest box... and it's mounted on the thing... with and "engrave-able" plaque. Wouldn't that be sweet!

    New creatures to use the Taxidermy Kit on.

    Barrels
    Empty carts (as a container)
    Guild Stones
    Wands (maybe requires an associated level of Magery or Inscription, similar to pentagrams)

    Something new for smiths:
    Dragon Scale Shields (made from dragon scales and ingots)

    Stayin Alive,

    I agree with the sentiment of "If it's in the game, it should be craftable." It would most likely be easier to make a list of things that should not be craftable.
    • Rocks
    • Trees
    • Fruit and vegetables
    • House pieces
    • Ground tiles
    • Uniquely named/hued rares
    • Etcetera...

    At first glance, I thought you were giving a list of things you wanted to be able to taxidermy, and I was like "Eh?"

    Great Idea!!

    Additionally... UO has the best housing/deco system of any game on the market. Players are constantly decorating their homes with themes to different rooms (ie...tailoring, smithing). Why not expand on these areas.

    How about these ideas:
    1) Wood Shops

    Drill Press
    Lathe
    Table Saw

    2) Fishing Shop

    A hanging trophy fish (one that hangs like from the tail when fisherman take pics of sharks)
    Swordfish wall trophy
    Deep Sea Fishing Pole (for deco)

    3) Tailoring Shop

    Mannequins

    4) Tinkering Shop

    Small deco toys... something that would make things look like elves working area.

    5) Inscription

    Make a bookcase/shelf that is like your academic bookcase but instead shows old dusty scrolls instead of books

    Well...you get the idea!!
     
  30. There's also graphics for Jester Pants, that match the Jester Tunic, and you can even see them on the ground in the cavern of the discarded.
     
  31. Craft-able black cat statues, and a house add-on deed for creepy doors that pop open when you walk by with skeleton's jumping out at you.

    And a craft-able crypt to add to my keep.

    ...change crafted deeds back to "breaks when axed", or maybe a small number of do-overs, say 5. There's next to no turnover compared to what there was when carpentry was a bread & butter skill.
