    This video is on a thread over in Homes and Castles, but I just had to bring it here so many more people could appreciate what this person has done over on Seige.... I'm gonna create a char there in the next couple of days - just to go over and see it in person... *Hopes he gets to see it in color*

    I have to go see how he did this.... Wow! Amazing... Really makes me wish we could somehow have "villages" in UO....

    This was very well done friend.

    Thank you so much. It is amazing what folks do with their housing plots. I have been a big fan of that for decades now!

    That's a really nice job. Too bad some of our towns don't look as nice.

    That side by side house reminds me of Slaymore of Slaymores Inc (S*I). He used to own a village of houses just south of Luna on Great Lakes years ago. His main two houses were set up like that where they looked together. These people that create these pieces of art should be somehow recognized for their creativity in UO.

    if you ever have the time, go to Tazar's town on ATL.
    its the same kinda thing... but BIGGER!
    i dont know how many houses he has in that town but i was there for a couple of hours walking around and i didnt see half of it im sure.
    same kinda deal, you walk from one house to the other via telepads that you dont see so it looks like a seamless pathway.
    Hoff's there in the video is nice.
    but if you wanna see it bigger and better go see Tazar's town.
    not sure what it is called off the top of my head.
    if you go to luna, go out the South gate, then turn east, there are all the town stones set out there, just start going through them till you find his.

    I just went to go see Blackwell's house on Seige (from the vid); amazingly well done!! The attention to the tiny little details, that you may miss if you're not looking, is awesome! If you wanted, you could get lost in there playing hide and seek ;p -- I'm going to try to find Tazar's also. Thank you for sharing this :)

    *Edit* I've been running around Tazar's Fortress, and what a fortress it is! I'm in awe! And that little black (blue) book, laying on the floor by his beautiful curtained bed, called the "Agreement" is..... *ahem*....... interesting. :eek:

    Wonderful job. Customizing houses is one of my TOP 3 things to do in UO... UO is what it is because of things like that! It is awesome what you can do with some thought... And there is really no need to make a borg-cube... It´s so lovely to live in a house with a unique design. Think one of the reasons why I am still here is housing.

    These pictures/videos inspire me... Think I have to open another account to make another house... Uhm, my fifths house then... Awwww, we should all be allowed to have 2 houses on each account. I would LOVE to have 8+ houses...

    Damn...I go and deco my house...feel all happy, happy, happy about it...and then this....

    Makes my house look like a paint by numbers completed by a 5 year old.....possibly a color blind 5 year old.......


    What UOers do with house deco is absolutely amazing.

    I have been inspired. I am going to redo my house to make it good enough not to be embarrassed to show on these boards!!!

    Gonna take my time to think my way through this to get it right....anybody got any good themes for a house?

    I remember someone had made a McDonalds (Baja if I remember correctly). Not something I would (could) undertake, but blew my mind with its creativeness. Was absolutely amazing.

    As I recorded this video, I wanna say big thanks for warm words! I hope Hoffs would continue with his artwork and we could see a library (4th house) soon :)

    Siege Perilous is waiting for you! If you would try it - you would stay there forever :)
