Water Tiles?

Has anyone ever suggested to the Devs that maybe Water Tiles be introduced, like the Grass/Snow/Swamp Tiles?

I know a few people who own new castle designs who would love to turn a part of their house into a personalized pond-type or moat-type thing ...

    I'm sure someone has over the years. You can sift thru old meet and greet transcripts and see. I seem to remember someone asking at one but no idea the answer. (My best guess would be Soon or No.)
  • So far it has always been no -ish. We have asked to get them as sea boss drop and lots of things. Last time we were asking for it that I know of, We got thoose Koi ponds.  They were  great looking but still not the same thing . After we got thoose I have not heard anything about water tiles.

    A nice thing, IMO, could be the creation of a "General Tile" Item, either as a new Item or as the conversion of the already existing Tiles (they have already done the latter with the Teleporters).
    Reusable and with a Menu/Gump for choosing each time what kind of Tile it will be: Sand, Water, Grass, Snow, Lava, Swamp, etc.
    After all the differences between the various kind of Tiles are, as now, only cosmetic, and there are already many installable/disinstallable Items that one can reconfigure at every new intallation: Banners, etc.
    Moreover, in this way we will have, at last, no more problems of Tile stacking incorrectly!

    I make water tiles with cloth dyed three different colors, stack them, and raise them each a bit. Throw in some grantie blocks. Remembered how we used to make the old aquariums years ago. Comes out looking like this. My first try. I will adjust it a bit when I have time.

    Water tiles have been asked for several times, there are the animated water tiles from champions
    or dyed carpet tiles can make a fairly realistic water feature:

    Your talking about water tiles that look better than the ones they have?  Put those on my roof when I built my house because I liked the blue color.  When I tried to walk on the roof I could not so I asked UO why I could not walk on the roof the UO representative that came out told me they were water tiles and players can’t walk on water.

    We want water tiles like grass, sand, and snow tiles.  We should be able to walk on them. Or put the stones on them and walk on the stones.

    To my knowledge - only 1 person had the ability to walk on water.... and I do not think anyone playing UO is Him.

    Why would Orion play UO?

    And why not have walkable water tiles? Nothing says it has to be deep water.

  • There are water tiles floating around in game.  But they are rare. I only know where a few are now. But its possible to use gozas and animated rocks and give water flow. I do it all the time

     I do! People also hire me to decorate houses for them in game.  Archknights castle on Atlantic was one of the more recent ones I've done , but I've done decorative for many many people over the years.
