I notice many ladders going into the front of castles and keeps - how is this done?
Heritage Token - Castle Ladder
You mean bypassing the front doors for entrance ?
Pretty sure he knows where ladders come from, not exactly what he was asking though.
he is asking how to place it, it is a bit convoluted to do anymore, but instructions may be found in the better homes and castles section i believe.
Is this what you mean?
PS.. Yes it still works.
Thanks that is what I was looking for.
Thats pretty cool! thanks for asking the question!
Got it to work in a keep and castle. The keep on the far right side of steps (looking at keep).
The castle in front of the left door.
Thanks for all your help guys.
I was trying to get mine on the far left step but could only get it to work on the left side door (ladder in front).
i must be doing something wrong. it keeps saying i must be doing this in a house i own. im on the house owner.
Castle or keep?
AS you face the castle - you must place rune direcly in front of the left hand door on steps. Then follow the procedure and make sure you pick castle ladder north. Also make sure no obstructions are on the walkway above the door.
so it must cover the left door?
ok i have it covering the left door.
Great I'll keep playing around and if I get any other workable combinations i'll post them.
I was able to place a ladder on the steps of my castle without blocking the left door.
I'm impressed - would you be willing to share how you did it?
I think the process is the same as the url mentioned earlier in this thread. Here are the steps:
Put a rune on the farthest left part of the steps (no need to lock it down).
Place a square goza on the same spot by targetting the rune.
Raise the goza 3 times.
Stack 5 ingots on top of each other on the tile in front of the steps.
Place a foot stool on top of the stack of ingots.
Retrieve the rune under the goza & place it on top of the goza mat (no need to lock it down).
Place the ladder selecting Castle-North and targetting the rune.
For most of my castles I have the ladder in front of the left door. I rarely use the doors but instead I just run up the ladder. If the ladder is placed in front of the left door, I can run up the ladder and straight into the main area of the castle. When the ladder is placed to the far left, you have to run up the ladder and take a step to the right or else you run into one of the interior walls. Aesthetically I think the ladder looks best on the far left. But from a efficiency perspective, I can get in and out faster when the ladder is in front of the left door.
Thank you, thank you! Finally clear directions that worked .
For those who are wondering, it works in EC as well.
Very very nice! Thanks so much!
Angel - dO you mind if I add yours to UOHomeDecor? I will try to add the other as well.
This should be a sticky.
Feel free to add it and you can edit it too if you want. After I made the post, I thought maybe it would be better if I had posted each pic with the instructions below each picture like they did on the other site.
Man, frustrating, neither the old one listed nor yours works, Angel, either in front of the door or to the very left. Keeps saying there is something blocking the location. Nothing else anywhere near, nothing on the steps, nothing in the entrance way, nothing on the walls.
Sawadee Parnoc! Have you tried in both clients? I got it working on a keep and a castle and used the EC. Maybe try the opposite client from what you are using now?
i'll be glad to meet you in game to help you place the ladder...just drop me a PM.
Tried both clients, I'm sure there's just some stupid thing I'm doing that causes it not to work, but I've gone thru and thru the instructions trying to follow them to the "T" and still says something is blocking.
This would be really helpful for my castle in the swamp, seem the buggers there are constantly on the watch and one of my poor crafters recalls in and before they can even get onto the teleporter I put on the steps, he/she is almost dead.
Thanks much, I'll sure do that, it's just a little hectic at my house in RL right now but I will be calling on you!
I also have a swamp castle and you can bet I have a ladder out front.
I can only think of 2 reasons why it won't place:
1. You can not have any items on the 2nd floor where the ladder goes over the wall.
2. The pile of ingots and goza are not even.
Also, make sure you are using a 'foot stool'. I'm not sure if it will work using a regular stool but I've always used the foot stool and it works every time.
Awesome and thank you!
Same process works on the right side as well (and I used a book instead of a rune):
Wondering if I can include this in the New Stratics Interface's Homes & Deco section as everything is getting moved there. Let me know.
I recently placed a new keep and decided to give this a try and I was able to place the ladder following the directions listed here. However I am not able to run directly up the ladder, I have to stand on the stairs and climb on the ladder from the side. Is this the way it works for everybody?
That's what I have to do.
