Since when can houses be placed on top of Towers?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Marcus Blackwell, Mar 11, 2009.

  1. Just found a large tower in Fel with a small wood house placed on top of it. Since when can houses be placed on top of large towers? Now this isnt a mini house this is an acutal house owned by someone totaly different then the person that owns the tower.

    You'll probably find a small wooden house on that spot in Trammel - just an occasional quirk when you switch between facets/shards, the house you're seeing on top of the tower isn't actually in Felucca.

    Ah since UO first started. That was pretty common back in the day. But yeah they changed that so you can't. I remember one time we left a dragon in this dudes small house on top of his large tower.

    The house your seeing is probally thier. Its most likly not a qwirk or mess up. Long time ago you were able to do so. I remember seeing a few towers like that back in the day.

    Yep houses on top of towers was common way back in the day. I had one on my tower but back then u needed the keys to refresh houses. My buddy went on vacation and didnt leave me a key so it vanished. Sucks. Would have been nice to still have it up there.
     
  6. Many years back i bought a fel tower with a small shack on roof you needed 2 diff accts...only one left on atl like that and i sold to the gm of DOM guild...
    only for him to explore and customize the tower and make the small fall to the plot and then it got stuck and ruined and lost forever.

    I regret ever losing a peice of history for a buck.

    :(

    There is a still a few of these on baja, Large tower with 3 smalls surrounding the tower porch, and a small house on the tower roof. We used to be able to have one house per char, so the ones that are left are stuck on the grandfathered account. Unless someone wants to use 5 accounts for one.

    I was glad to see this tower was still around when I scouted last week after a longer than a year hiatus. Shocked to see what happened to the golden brew though. :(

    Since the good ol' days. Of course they did change it after some time.

    Still got at least one left on Sonoma on Ice Island.

    *ponders*

    Would be cool if you could customize that house on the tower :D

    I've always wondered how you get to the front door of the tower with the three little houses blocking???

    When there was no Tram, you had to have a rune to get into that spot. After Tram you could use a moonstone from Tram to get into that location.

    There are still one or two towers with small houses on top left on Pacific. There used to be quite a few back in the early days ('97 and '98).
    Runes could be marked to get into the space at the centre of the 'three little house in front of the door' configuration.

    Not sure if it's the same one you're mentioning, but there's still at least one on Cats. Near the swamps outside Brit. It's a couple screens from my Keep.

    Napa used to have two or three off these. I think they're gone now, along with so much more of our history :(
