    So I was wondering if something like this could be done in UO.. I find myself many times wishing I could make my helmet invisible or my ugly black hockey mask on my tamer. I find myself wishing there was an object I could buy from an npc or something that would allow me to hide an ugly leather cap when heading out on a quest with friends, instead of risking blows to my unprotected head.

    I have no idea if something like this could be coded, but if so I would love to be able to purchase some kind of invisibility powder, maybe like 5k a charge that would last an earth day? I'd love to be able to look my best when I'm out and about, and leather caps, mask of the wilds, bone helmets etc just don't cut it.

    Here's to wishing on a star..

    It's been discussed. They'd have to be moved to a new layer. Could possibly be done, maybe

    I know how you feel, Dr. Satan, I hate opening up my paper doll and/or looking at my avatar and because of helmet type looks bad.

    Glad, I'm not the only one feels that way. I either choose to leave my head uncovered or go with a hat/cap style.

    as CaptainMorgan said, might be able too in-corporate those suggestions.

    I would be willing to bet that a simple "summon helmet" spell could be sold that on use creates a helmet on you that has no graphic associated with it, it could have a 12 or 24 hour timer and if another hat or helm is equipped it is removed,or simply can't be equipped till the timer expires.

    There are currently unused layers, so I don't think it even has to go too far.

    I fully support the change

    I don't think layering the item to an unused layer will even achieve the desired effect. You can still see the item (all glitched out, graphic wise, none the less) ... depending on the other layers in use.

    I haven't actually looked at that the source in ages (at least that section), but there maybe (err... is most likely) an easy way to do it...

    But even if there weren't a work around would do the trick. You could create an item that grants the maximum determined bonus for hats/helms, and prevents you from equipping other hats/helms when it's activated.

    But... good luck.
