    Please do! And leave a message! If you fall outta the windows, don't bother trying to sue...I went a little broke securing a luna place to deco!

    And...*blush* its a milkshake.

    Without Sarsmi's help with the tricky back counter in the end I'd never have gotten this thing done on time.

    I thought so too, Drakelord, but the little firestorm it created was so damned embarrassing, I'm sorry I posted a link over there

    There's a duality of this design being great, but it also makes my eyes hurt.
    ... which is a realistic reaction, so: nice job. :)

    So creative! I love all the little bits of detail that went into all of it...from the fries and milkshakes to the little fry guys and play area.

    I hope they do make a little mini house deed of it :)

    This is the worst defacement of UO art I have ever seen. Seeing how many people cheer on that tasteless nonsense, it makes me wonder whether I am playing the right game.

    I don't deny that the house owner knows how to create something unique with using game items. Still it is completely out of place.

    Cursed be those dyes.

    You couldn't take the higher road and simply not say anything at all? I think the house represents what UO is all about - creativity, freedom and uniqueness.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion of course...around here though, in addition to praise, and encouragement, when criticism is offered, we are accustomed to it being done constructively. Art is a subjective area, after all.

    To my knowledge, Voluptuous is not responsible for the introduction of neon/day-glo into UO. She did however, manage to take what was available and make a fun, and for most, instantly recognizable slice of the real world in the game. She is an amazingly talented UO deco artist, and I love seeing (and stealing/modifying :D) examples of her work. I don't think we will have to worry about McLuna's on every corner in UO, but I'm sure some people got some great new ideas for what is possible in UO deco.

    the simple fact the devs actually mentioned it and how its used to promote individuality... like a pirate for example. im pretty sure ronald mcdonald has some pirate in him too.

    i, personally, think mcluna's is one of the cleverest, most humorous houses i've ever seen in uo and it makes me giggle every time i see it (always a good thing). if you want to highlight some truly out-of-place items in game, maybe you can start with the new mailboxes that look like they're straight from the shelf of a walmart super sale? *gag*. why can't they look like little wooden boxes or bird houses. when the bird's on the roof, you've got mail. that would be much cuter, and way more realistic.

    Dare I say that in a game whose greatest strength is its sandbox nature, in which players can make/do/be whatever they want to on such a grand scale, that nothing doable is out of place? Not everything in this game is going to please everyone. However, i would hate to play a game that would attempt to do so. The shelves are full of such games, and although I will play many of them, i will not play them for long. UO would lose a lot of what make UO UO by placing such limitations. What?, only classic house desings available?, everyone with the same weapons, classes, clothes, etc. bbbboooorrrrriiiinnnnnggggg.

    I am not, by nature, a very creative person. i will not ever show my house onthese boards, as it is so pathetic in design, that it shames me. i ifeel like a gob of used gum on the soles of Volutuous'/Sarsmi's/and so many other peoples shoes here. If I had a tenth of Voluptuous' talent, i would create a Luna Burger or find a way to put some red pigtails on Lord British as some competition.

    And Cal is right to show EA execs McLuna's. It is a shining (no pun intended) example of UO's uniqueness that no other MMORPG has ever been able to capture. Sometimes corporate executives need to see something that stands out to get an idea across there relatively small minds. :)

    Some people feel the need to tear down other people to make themselves feel better. It's a character flaw, and we forgive you for it.

    *shrugs* Art isn't inherently good or bad since there can be no universal criteria by which to judge it. Therefore it must be judged subjectively. And if it's criticisms are subjective, then the judgements are actually reflections of the critics rather than the art itself.
    Based on your criteria for what it should be, you don't like it. That's fine, just try not to confuse your subjective opinion with universal truth (it's annoying at best).

    ... IMHO,
    I've always heard this but never really agreed with it. quality art whatever the medium, has to have some integrity in it(which denotes good art) and McLuna has it in spades. When a person creates something with integrity, it may not be 'inherently good' as say a sunset, but it still merits automatic recognition, acknowledgement and respect even if you don't appreciate the subject matter. art can be 'inherently good' ,Michelangelo's art in the Sistine Chapel is inherently good, or a still life from the 17th century for example... there are certain things that are inherently good art automatically without question, it's rare but it happens. I'm not bashing you Mr Miner, btw i love your "Stupid Miner" write ups.

    Ah, but if someone was making an artistic depiction of laziness and lack-of-integrity, the art having integrity would make it fail to represent what it was supposed to represent, which would make it "bad art."

    This is actually more telling of the commonality of certain human standards.
    There are standards that all, or at least almost all, humans hold to (such as Michelangelo's art being good), but we can't definitively say whether these standards right or wrong. Well, we can say it, but we can't prove it.

    Side Note:
    Yours is the position I would tend to hold by default, but after consideration switched to the one I currently hold.
    ... just so you know, I'm not just repeating a position I've been taught to hold, since from what I gather this position is more commonly taught (by people who may or may not know why)

    if they were able to pull off that zeitgeist of laziness and lack of integrity into their artwork, the artwork has integrity and merit.

    the human figure has always been seen as a work of 'inherently good' art which is why i mentioned Michelangelo's Chapel work.

    hmmm ok , well we can agree to disagree :)
