Now that will be some serious deco...
SKYLARK!!! DO THIS!!!!! :bowdown:
hmm an orc bank.....
that sounds interesting enough.
Does inside UO allow you to like manipulate a screen like if you were inside house designing mode cause otherwise it'd be hard just to create a screenshot trying to copy and paste everything ya know
*shakes head* I will win this contest, Mo. A combination Pub, Bank. With beautiful tellers serving ale. *nods*
Maybe some cannons to shoot the pesky thieves.
Is this just a deco job, or a total rebuild? I have to go ask.

Good questions, all!
We can accommodate designs that *add* to the structure, but not delete from it. In other words, if you want to add walls, stairs, etc, that's fine.
* Cannot change terrain (dirt/grass/basically anything with a texture on the floor)
* Cannot change static objects (existing walls, existing items in the bank that are scenery only/can't be interacted with)
The Terrain and Statics are global to all shards because they're part of the map files.
However, in InsideUO, when viewing the tileart, you'll see a section full of floor tiles. These are not terrain, and can be placed on top of it without problems. If you decide you want to redo the floor of the bank - that's fine.
The same goes for walls - you can't *change* the existing walls, but we can easily add walls to the existing bank. All your changes will be local to the shard, and nothing will change on the client.
Keep in mind we'd love to see what you do with the outside as well - that whole area could use some love.
All we care about is seeing a final result screenshot and a good description for the design. Don't get caught up in asking what tools you can use - we only suggest InsideUO for browsing the art because it's so handy.

So... I have to work with the existing bank... I can add a bar, a stage, a dancing pole... Free checking is a given.
Does UO have a disco ball?
i just sent in my entry
The best way to do this project IMO is to use Kurgan's wonderful program, UO Housebuilder. It uses all the internal art components of UO and allows you to make offline designs on house plots of your size choice. Because it lets you use art from the game that is ordinarily only available to the developers, you can make the UO house of your dreams.
The hosting site has changed a couple of times and I am not sure where it is now, but there should be a sticky on the Homes and Castles forum with the info.
Well, since I think I am the only architect who actually plays Siege...this is for me...la
Go for it!
Would be kind of fun to have someone who is a RL architect actually win the contest...although from my experience with UO building, I'm not sure you will exactly have any opportunity to use your 1337 real world skills in this area, but at least you can make something pretty.
I think that I got the real skill when it comes to "world building" Good luck ya'll!
Im useless with home building, but I think we need an evil theme here. Though, it says its your shard only, on both faccets, wonder what our trammel bank will look like.....uhg
I may just sketch something up this weekend...la
