    love the manikins.
    been begging for them in game for years and years and years.
    so love that they are in game.

    but tonight i was putting up some of them for displaying some of my suits and i realized that there is a real nice advantage too them.

    i was on my beggar.
    he has 3 suits.
    a begging suit (blessed pants, shirt and hat with a nice blessed lantern)
    a pvp suit (for faction stealing and such, all 70 suit with DCI and pvp stuff)
    a LRC/LMC suit (for tram based stealing in the dungeons)

    so i was testing out the 'swap clothes' button on the manikins and i realized that these are gonna be awesome for fast switching of suits.

    now, i realize that for people using the EC this is a one button instant thing already, but for us old timers who still use 2D this is great!
    i can have a manikin set up with each suit, just walk up, hit the suit i want and BLAMO im dressed and ready to go dancing!

    will work nice for my archers too.
    PVP suit
    PVM suit
    LMC/MR suit ect ect ect

    Yeah thats really handy. Another thing I noticed today too is that Blacksmith/Tailor etc can repair clothes/armor on their own body. So next time you're on a char who needs his suit repaired, dont put all your armor in a bag and log in on your crafter. Instead use the Mannequin to grab damaged suit, then hop on your crafter and trade clothes with the manaquin and repair it all. Then just switch back. Pretty nice :)

    Something else about the mannequins,is that if you have them in your house and turn that house from public to private,they will get kicked out of the house and put under the house sign. Just like players that are not friended to the house.

    Your so amusing Poo!

    This has to be one of the better things I've seen come down the pipe so far.
    Just love it.

    I didn't know you could repair while wearing a suit, thats a nice feature.

    I wasn't going to get one of these until I heard this just now. Thank you Poo this is awsome. Now my training suits will always be ready and it will only take a second.

    Me either, but NOW I will have a changing room in my house!!! This is great, I mean how often have I wanted to literally switch out a dexxer suit to another char to train with, or to use for a specific spawn. This rocks!

    yup!

    all ya do is put up your manakins, then dress yourself in your suit, say your LRC suit.
    then you single click the manakin, hit the switch clothes thing, BLAMO, everything except for your talisman moves over instantlly.

    then put on your dex suit, walk up to your next manakin, same thing, hit switch suits, BLAMO its now on the manakin.

    k, so say your now rolling around in your orc skin suit.... why.... cause your a roll player (hehe) and you want to put on your LRC suit, ya walk up and hit switch suits, it will slap your LRC suit on ya and take off your orc skin suit in one click and your out the door in 2 seconds flat!

    i have a dex/HCI suit that i keep laying around to train melee skills with, think ill chuck that onto a manakin as well, that way i can keep tabs on it and insta dress it as well.

    Do the manikins have a security setting? Would hate to have someone walk by and don my suit.

    No, They work like soulstones. Only the same account characters can use them. Other characters from otker accounts can only open the paperdoll and look at them.

    Just to bad they haven't figured out how to do the UOAssist auto dress. Allows characters to auto dress from nearby containers in your house. This allowed characters that could share choice pieces with hotkey. Allows for multiple characters to share that jackles collar or orny. Just undressed into the container relog on next character and hit auto dress.

    I have found that the Assist Auto-Dress is just too unpredictable and while I use it sometimes (like after I get killed) this sounds a bit more solid, plus it will put away neat.

    I was kind of worried about mannequins at first because they don't take lockdowns and I really don't know how much they were tested (ie I didn't want to lose irreplaceable suit items). But they're basically temporary account-bound house storage items. You can also use them as deco. You can also use them to swap suits from char to char. I was thinking I might even use them just to wear nice mod barbed GM pieces, you know, like pieces with 16 energy resist and the like before imbuing. Lot of possibilities. Or recreate Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Maybe even that cave dance in the third Matrix.

    You all do realize this is some women's dream don't you?

    *walks into the closet (roof of the castle) and walks the lines of mannequins, eying each one closely , trying to figure out what to wear today*

    Thank you and Curse You Developers!

    Best of all they dont use storage room , 10 manequins full dressed will save up to 70 items in your house storage. And another nice tip you can place manequins over 13th anniversary Display cases. :)

    Now THAT's what I have been waiting to hear. Had not tried them to see if the items on them counted towards storage or not. That just freed up about another 150 locks lol


    Now if they can take care of them getting kicked to the house sign when going private, it would be GREAT!! instead of just great......

    Pray tell M'Lord, at the risk of sounding very inadequately informed, I need ask this *embarrassing* question:

    From whense doth a mannequin cometh?

    I am waiting to see someone's house being filled for a joke. A co-owner can place say 20 mannequins in your house and then you can't do anything with them. Then owner of the house cannot interact with them. I guess the best you could do is switch the house from public to private so they go outside, but then you have a stack of them on your steps under the sign. LOL

    If only you could use them to display the armor's properties (Physical, Fire, Cold, Poison, Energy LRC/LMC/MR etc) then these would be really useful.

    I am actually redesigning my house because of the mannequins. I plan to have a small battalion of them in my basement for fast switching of suits. Each of my characters has at least 2 suits. This will make life much easier keeping track of what's what. Instead of piles of clothes in bank boxes I can just have the suits on display ready to go.

    Now if they only showed total resists and other modifiers when hovered over with your mouse. That would be nice.

    I m afraid to use mine. During clean-up, I m reorganizing and changed from publick to private. My first mannequin was lost forever because it popped out of the house the first time I went public to private. I was very thankful that she was not dressed but sad she is gone.
