NEW Hotel

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Scopulus Falco, Jul 13, 2009.

  1. Hail all,My Alt(Drake Ta'Kier) has been made Co Leader to NEW, and im building a free Hotel for them to use till they get there own place.I am by far rich( dont even have a Mil if that tells you how poor i am)So im asking for any donation from you all.And for anyone that donates gold and Deco items for the Hotel, Your name will be put in a book as a donor,for all to see.I can do this my self but it would not be as nice as it could be.Deco is needed more than anything but gold is needed as well.My ICQ is 558-509-815, or PM me if you would like to help out.

    Thank you all that help make SP the best place to play UO.

    I have 1 million that I will invest in this endeavor. It is from the retired Siege Vet fund which I have seem to be the treasurer of... I am not sure how that happened.

    awesome. i had a hotel once at the brit mtn passage. had a few residents for awhile...till i ate them!! hehe

    Congrats on the new hotel! Will there be a grand opening?? Will there be a pool...maybe you should rent rooms to those who can afford it also!

    Ohh make a honeymoon suite!!! Ari and Skylar might need one in the future!

    Make a drop box at Fanta's shop for people to drop checks in.

    Hey falco...

    2 questions.

    How do you plan on accommodating multiple players? Preventing jerkish newbs from robbing others...?

    I really wish they would bring back something similar to those old 'strongboxes' where they were only accessible by that player and the owner of the house... that was some good dev thinking (except for the 25 item limit crap)

    maybe the EMs could help set something up?
     
  13. I gave that some thought. And this is what i came up with.I friend players(NEW or paying customers).I give them keys to the boxes that go to the boxes to there rooms, they lock them down in there rooms, no one can un lock what they lock down, sept them, or me I think, now like I said, I cant have any lock pickers renting (,NEW or no NEW).And if i get some one that wants to rob a NEW player I will find out with Forensics eval as to who did it and from there we know how to treat that dirt bag right?

    If the key is in a keyring, they do not have to unlock it to use it to unlock their box.

    If they keep expensive stuff in the box, it may be a good idea to use detect hidden in house before unlocking the box.

    Also lockdown a book with their name in their room, this way, you won't forget who live there and you can easy drop them a message.

    Good luck with the hotel

    I think I'd be right in saying, if you secure a box and they lock it, secured boxes can't be lockpicked. It would be better, maybe, than having to unlock the box from its locked down status every time they wanted something out of it?

    I'll give you any items that are on my five & dime vendor, just tell me what you want.

    Never heard of those, but even with the 25 item limit (crappy though it's be) it'd be better than nothing. Save them a run to the bank. 100 would be better. 125 would be fantastic.

    I had been running hotels like this several times, I had never had trouble with dishonorable players. With a locked chest to each, the options to lock down a few deco thing in their room, there is not much chance to rob each others.

    My biggest problem was players who went inactive and their left over items.

    If you not are in guild with the people living in your house, it's very hard to know if they play or not.


    If I ever do it again, I will demand a small fee, they need to lockdown each month so I can see they are alive.


    Strongboxes was nice as they did not take of your storage. Let each strongbox hold 125 items and take up 4 vendor slots from the house.
    The biggest problem with strongboxes was, you had to make the users to co-owners, friend should be enough and the owner can't have a house on the shard.

    I ran a small boarding house for NEW once. Most of them just needed a place to put practice skill gain (magery, etc), and a place to store their LRC suit when not using it. Everything else they took to the bank.

    Like Freja said - the biggest issue was with people who quit or otherwise just left their stuff without coming back for it or letting me know to trash it or pass it on.

    I never thought that was a problem. If you were going to make your house a hotel... then go all the way.

    You know what I can't stand about customizable housing... is how much it's taken away from the potential houses used to have.

    You can't even lock doors with keys any more... it's all context menu BS.

    I thought another really cool thing that this hotel could of used to make it happen was rooms all locked by doors with different keys. Give a key to a person in that room (they could have secured chests that they could access with their own set of keys to them) for added security.

    So much potential lost on trammies and rules tailored to them.

    I had thought about taking on patients when I was going to do the "hospital". Was going to friend people, and let them lock down a box them self in their room. No keys. As someone mentioned keys can be looted.
    Only people that can get in a locked down box are the person that locked it and the owner of the house.
    As mentioned, always detect hidden first.....especially if the house is public.
    Also they will have to remember they will need to unlock each individual item in the box to remove something. It's a bit of a pain, but it's the best way to go I think.
    It's tricky, but I think it's something that is needed on Siege.

    The key can't be looted when the owner of the box lock it down in a keyring side by the box. It so not have to be unlocked to unlock/lock the box.
    Only the one who lockdown the key in keyring and the house owner can click on it to lock/unlock box.
    As long the box is unlocked, there is a risk, that a friended stealter can look in the box and grap something but a stealther will have to open the door to get in the room.
    People only accessed to the house is no threat as they can access a friend secure box locked or not.

  37. Thank you Jesus, but i have to many peeps dropping off things that is taking up way to much space.I just want the place to look nice.The Hotel is not a place to drop off donations for NEW.(other than to make the place classy :D )it is for them to live in a nice place as they grow.Sorry if I come off snooty but my main goal it give them a nice place to live.But if you want to donate please by all means take your stuff to the NEW HQ. Thank you for the offer.

    It would be nice if the Dev team can improve the security on houses by adding something like: "Set Security - Friends and then you see a list of options like:
    - All Friends
    - Kage
    - Fanta

    etc....

    You get what I mean. That would be great and easier to make Hotels in the game. ;-)

    Ill check if I have any evil furni. I got a ton of decor, I consider junk, cause well I dont use it. Not much for decor. I know I should have some skull candles. But as far as stuff for the hotel, is there anything u want in perticular? I got some potted plants, broken chairs etc. Not sure what your theme is. I also have quiet a few para chests. Some blacks, not too many whites. I guess I should sort my stuff, its sitting in a spare house
     
  49. Yes that would be great.But I have it worked out well.We will get by safely, for the most part,I think I have it covered.(back ground check needed (thanks CHEAP SUIT)
     
  50. Ya that be great for Falco,If you can find Evil deco.But for the hotel, the only thing we need now is the heritage tokens now.I can buy 6 with what has been donated .If you have them.
