Since EA\OSI might never allow the customization of Castles and Keep.
I want to see how you would redo the base designes they have.
Using House Builder and keeping with the base size.
Design some new static house's for the Castle and Keep design.
Maybe with this EA\OSI might add them in as a choise for those who have these static house's

I even challenge the DEV's to get in on this.. eww I know some of the DEV's love a challenge "cough Draconi cough"

((((Contest will go till April 3rd.))))
:thumbup: Lord Nabin of Napa has put up a 25mill prize for the winner. To be picked up on Napa Valley Shard. :thumbup:

Also if you make the design with House Builder. Please post link to your HB design. Include pic also if you like.

Castle is 31x31
http://builder.thelo.../Castle-Base.hb

Keep is 24x24
http://builder.thelo...om/Keep-Base.hb

((Added in Base's for the Castle and Keep. Just load House Builder then the design.))

Make sure to NOT have a base like a plot.
What you can do is build a house with HB with a foundation.
Then take away the plot and build from there.
If you need help getting the base designs, use InSideUO.

InSide UO From Stratics
http://uo.stratics.c...euo/index.shtml

InSide UO w/SE & ML animations
http://builder.thelo...om/InSideUO.zip

Lets see those designs. HB Download page.
http://builder.thelo....com/index.html

This is sorta a contest also. Nothing big won from this.
Other then the winning designs get added into House Builder.
Along with the name of the person who won.
So get out there and show me your designs.

if I could change anything about the keep it would be to open up those useless spaces between the towers on the bottom floor.

I haven't downloaded it yet so I cant help sorry. Im at work on a mac. Have you managed to get the files out of the ZIP file? I thought it had to be where your uo files were or something because they get the textures etc from uo.

Which OS are you running?
Do you have UO updated?
Do you have your OS updated?
As HB needs .NET installed for this to work.

HB has issue's with Vista.

Let me know.

HB sometimes crashes in Vista, mostly when you try and resize the ToolBox.
I will test this out on tuesday when I get back to work.
