UO An Corp allows the purchase and/or crafting of player housing

  • Players are limited to one house per account
  • Players are limited to three houses per IP address


Custom houses

  • Custom houses can be created using the house placement tool sold by all architect NPCs.
  • The house placement tool is not blessed.
  • Plots are triple their traditional cost so that regular housing will still be competitively priced.
  • Unlike standard housing, custom house plots refund their full value when their owner demolishes them.
  • No refund is given for those custom houses that decay due to inactivity.

Crafted Houses

UOAC supports four different styles of house which may be crafted by players.



Citizenship

Being a citizen of a town certainly has it's benefits, and one of them is being able to own property within the town limits.

Skill gain rates while inside of a house are at 50% for normal characters and the full 100% for militia members.

Note: House deeds (just as anything else bought from NPCs) are significantly cheaper as a citizen of the town you're purchasing it in.

House Decay

Houses last as long as they are not demolished by the owner or allowed to pass through the final stage of decay known as "In Danger Of Collapsing (IDOC)"

Houses decay as they did on OSI. This means going from "Like New" all the way to "In Danger of Collapsing".

  • Most house stages last many days so that players who need to go out of town or take a break from the game do not lose their house.
  • Once a house reaches the stage "In Danger of Collapsing", it will collapse completely 24 hours later.
  • When a house fully decays, its items are dropped on the ground, and the ground is clear for the placement of any other house that will fit.
  • House status is refreshed when an owner or co-owner opens doors or access the house sign menu
    • Custom house owners using only teleporters will want to make sure to use their house sign periodically

House Placement Issues

When placing a house, some people experience an issue with the ghosted image of the house being in a different location than the placement cursor. This is caused by the playing window being somewhere other than in the upper left of the client window. Click on the gold border and drag the playing window to the upper left as far as you can. It should be far enough that the top and left borders are no longer visible.

To place a house you must be 3 spaces east and west from any other houses and 5 north to south. The land must be even through the whole house placement area. You can place over most of the plants and things you can walk through.

Please note: Houses placed next to yours may prevent you from upgrading your house, so be careful!
