Have we suggested this before?

1) Houseboat? The new style ships are big enough for at least a 7x7 area under the deck with minor artwork. One per sub account? Even be possible with ship movement?

2) Just a thought but redo the art on the crystal/corrupted portals to look and function like moongates. I think that would look nicer. Could even go a step further and have different colors spawn similar to holiday boxes to keep the trading going.

3) Pegleg boots?

4) Human/Elf Earring slot that looks like an eyepatch?

    If they remove the beacons we could have Houseboats.  Tracking would be useless on Atlantic tho.  
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    Please no, there's already too many ships left here and there blocking the waters, we don't need more.
    You and Several Others like this.

    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it. Some of us have been waiting a long time for this simple addition.
  • Fer real, even the small shards you can't get to the floating market or dock at a town...let's not compound the problem

  • Mobile houseboats wouldn't work, especially if you expect them to be able to be decorated like current houses. Moving that many items would be a severe cause of lag, especially if it attempted to cross a server line.

    Consider that a few dozen mobiles on a ship crossing a server line can crash a shard.

    A static, immobile "houseboat" could become a thing, but would have to be relatively small so as not to clog the seas with player's poor decorative instincts. 

    The other option would be instancing the interiors, but that isn't something UO was designed to do.

    They will never happen.

    I was just thinking out loud. There's a lot of unused space on these boats. 

    No thoughts on 2-3-4? 
  • 2) Unlikely to happen because the moongate graphic has been used for EM drops.

    3 & 4) both were asked for before this year's themed publishes were finalized, but they didn't happen  :/
