MMO player housing?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is Ultima Online seriously the only MMO out there with player housing? ...and I mean an actuall house that exists in the world and not a door you click to enter an instanced zone.

In UO I would spend an entire day just re-decorating my house...and yet I would enjoy it somehow. I loved it when I saw people running by and they would stop and walk around my house just to look at it. Some times I'd have twenty plus people over just to help decorate the guild castle and we'd have a blast.

I guess I never realized just how much something so lame meant to me till I started trying out MMOs that don't have it. it was just a side thing...did not even feel important at the time, but now I find myself really missing it.

Lineage 1 had clan houses and EQ2 had instanced housing.
I'm sure there are a few others....

I believe Darkfall will have player-made cities.

That's what I am talkingabout though...EQ2 has no housing...just a door that you share with every one else. If some one runs by they have no way to even know you live there.

sigh...I might as well go back to UO...the graphics are crap and the economy is so riuned that gold is completely and utterly worthless. Ontop of that it is so item based that I figured I might as well go play one of the the everquest clone games. I just didn't realize all these games were just so dang pathetic in so many other ways.

The houses and the crafting kept me in UO far longer than the hunting and PvP. It's a shame no one has bothered to put anything like them into a game since.

Asheron's Call 1 had actual visible houses, but they were pre-placed and used a "hook" system for decorations. You couldn't just put things where you wanted them, you had to use the hooks.

Yeah, I played AC for a while but it wasn't enough to tear me away from UO. I really wish I had stuck with that game more. It was pretty much last game that came out that actually let you control your character progression.

I guess I am just the odd man out since Ilike to have player housing, an active game play style, and a classless character system.

...it seems what the rest of the world likes is instanced doors for housing, select some thing-stand there-and kill it, and a game to hold your hand and control how your character develops so you don't have to think about it.

man...MMOs suck

Yeah SWG player cities were great. Last time I checked though, the whole game was a ghost town... Good job SOE.

I've heard AC1 is the same way now. I quit playing it about 4 years ago, and even then it was mostly vendor/buff bots online at any given time. That macro program everyone was using, and the fact that Turbine didn't put a stop to it, pretty much killed AC as far as I'm concerned.

I never played SWG, but I heard it was good for a while and then Sony basically decided to rewrite the whole game.
