    i remember when new houses where created by uo (log cabin, large marble etc) how awesome it was when someone got to placed it and how kwel it looked. Now, yes i know there is customizing houses but its not the same because when the designers make there house there able to do alot of things players cant do (curved tiles dont match up, stairs are completely awful) as a couple examples. i think it would be kwel if some new designs where made. i know alot of people who rather give up the storage just to have a large tower becuz of its looks.

    I always thought they should run a contest to design a house for a few difference sizes. Like they did with the banks. That way peeps can still get an 18x18 and not turn it into a box if they lack design skill/interest.

    Making house designs transferable from the gifted would be a start and open up a new market. I know i would pay someone for a custom design i could load to my space without transferring or giving account info

    they could possibly have it tied to the placement tool. have a "design mode" for the tool and you can make the house and save the design on the tool. then transfer the tool to whoever wants the design.

    Oh I agree 100% Always thought we ought to be able to sell our hard work of design.

    I would give up a castle and keep if I could get the storage of them in something smaller and customizable. In a HEART BEAT.

    The Ultima Online Home Owners Association (UOHOA) should impose a hefty fine on people who live in Borg Cubes.

    I'm totally for being able to sell/trade/give house blueprints, it would definitely help the design challenged! Personally, I hate making roofs and usually get Malag to do them for me :D

    What I'd really like to get is the ability to overlap housing pieces so players can finally achieve some of the effects that you see in the cities. I'd also like stair pieces as single-tile elements, and bannisters that don't illogically block movement (I'd also like ALL the bannister pieces, we're missing quite a few) and look natural on the stairs. But then I'd like to get access to all the missing pieces... o.0

    I like the Idea. I would like to see some new alternatives with max storage. Mostly I would Like to see the current system revamped and all the tiles finished and new ones added.

    I'd like to see all house sizes have the same storage as Castles. I pay the same price each month for my accounts as everyone else, so why shouldn't my storage be the same?
