Canyon –In the near future, modern houses that do not conform with the house placement rules listed on the Ultima Online website will lose certain functionality, and may become subject to further restrictions in the future as well. While these houses will not be deleted, improperly placed houses will not have access to all of the features that other houses have. The exact nature of these restrictions will be posted at a later date and we recommend that you keep reading the Ultima Online website for more information. Modern houses placed using a bug, placed completely off of the ground, in illegal locations such as those placed on top of other buildings, on top of hedges or trees, and inside or blocking interest points (such as dungeons, graveyards, etc.) may still be subject to deletion. We reserve the right to delete any future houses placed using exploits or bugs.
Improperly placed houses mean that if the house is redeeded, it cannot be replaced in the exact same spot. Properly placed means that if the house was redeeded, it should be able to be replaced in the exact same spot. There are no plans to change functionality of houses based on proper/improper status.
We have published the shards with an update that will let all players determine if a house is improperly placed. You can now determine if a house is improperly placed by double-clicking the house sign. Owners, co-owners, and friends of the house will receive a message on the bottom of the house sign window letting them know whether the house is properly placed or not. Other players may also double-click the house sign and will receive a red message in the lower left corner of their screen. There are four possible messages:
|Classic design and properly placed||These houses meet the house placement rules and will not have any restrictions on them.|
|Modern design and properly placed||These houses meet the house placement rules and will not have any restrictions on them.|
|Classic design and improperly placed||Although these houses do not meet the house placement rules, they were placed before the housing patch. These houses will not have any restrictions on them. However, if you redeed a classic, improperly placed house you will not be able to place another house in that location.|
|Modern design and improperly placed||These houses do not meet the house placement rules. Although these houses will not be subject to deletion, they will lose certain functionality.|
We strongly recommend that, before agreeing to purchase a house from another player, you visit it and use this method to ensure that it is properly placed, or that you know it is “improperly placed” and you are not concerned about upcoming restrictions. Again, modern houses that are defined as “improperly placed” are not subject to deletion, but they will be subject to restricted functionality in the future. All buyers and homeowners should make themselves aware of the newest information available on these subjects by referring to the Ultima Online website.
