I was at work this evening, and I happen to be the only Ultima player around. Surprise, surprise.
But, there are SEVERAL gamers that work for me, some play Warcraft, some in other games.
After years in Large Towers, I was excitedly telling them about my great experience building my own house. I really was taken by how difficult, but rewarding the process was. I became obsessed with getting every corner right, and I'm still off a little here and there! But I'm very proud of the work that I did. I showed the guys the house and they all were very jealous that they didn't have the opportunity to do this in THEIR game. We have taken this for granted I think, along with so many other things that either originated in Ultima or things that OUR game inspired. I live in a community called Bearpoint in a Fel 18x18 surrounded by no less than a dozen of my guildmates! I think that once again if we look at the big picture, we still have alot going for us compared to the other MMOs.
My favorite parts of the house are the vaulted ceiling on the eastern half and the second floor trophy room, but I fear that the most time will be spent in my basement crafting area!
Anyways, just wanted to share the pics!
