Deco problem: archways

Discussion in 'UO Homes and Castles' started by schwaran, Jul 18, 2009.

    Hello,

    I was have been a UO player off and on since 2000 and recently returned from a 3 month layoff. In my short time away I kind forgot how to deco! :embarrassed:

    There was this trick I used to know where you could get items to slide over and be underneath an archway. I think it involved a water barrel too, but I am not sure. Can anyone help refresh my memory? Checked the stickies and did some searching but 'water barrel' and 'archway' dont help much.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Are you referring to getting an item high enough so it hangs overhead? You can raise (and even turn some) items with an int dec tool, and there are tricks to get items to go higher as well.

    If that's way off you could browse the famous homes of britannia, it's a lot of older homes with older deco and you might find what you are thinking of in there so we can help you out. :)

    Normally when you have an archway, you cannot place anything IN it, like a bench. I am not talking about raising something so it is overhead, I mean actually placing in between the archway.

    How do I get the benches underneath the arch?

    Hrm, I used to put stuff on my beetle and then tell it to drop when it was standing on the correct tile. However I don't think you can do that anymore, maybe with packies (the command is "name" drop without quotes). Possibly you can place a trash barrel on that tile then put the stuff in it you want to raise, then axe the barrel before the stuff poofs (you have three minutes).

    If you can get a container down you can put stuff in and axe it (not the backpack style anymore though, no longer axeable). But then again if you can get a container down you can probably put the item down..hehe..
