    Welcome to the Renaissance College of Ultima Online, in this post we will cover the Land Rush system that housing is opened.

    As a free shard first the Renaissance server will employ a unique system designed to re-create the land rush from the Renaissance era.

    When the server first opened a variety of small house zones were opened for our players as show in these pictures. (Click to Enlarge)

    As the server grows and the demand for land increases additional areas will be opened for player housing. Players can monitor the progress of the land rush using our interactive map, that when zoomed in, will show any houses that are currently placed on the server.
    Renaissance Interactive Map

    Each phase of the land rush will be designed to allow players the ability to choose between several different styles of housing spots.
    • Large House Spots
    • Popular Vendor Spots
    • Desirable Spots
    • Remote or Secluded Spots

    Since the land will open at the same time during the land rush players will be forced to choose between the different spots available. Players attempting to use 3rd party programs to place houses will quickly find themselves jailed by our monitoring code. You can read more about this system here

    Phase 1
    The first phase of the land rush will encompass an area around Britannia. This phase opens on September 23rd 2012.

    Phase 2
    This phase will be announced sometime in November or December.

    Is this the extent of the Phase one land rush? Just around Britain? I assumed it'd be bigger, but you know what they say about when you assume :)

    Thanks for the hard work guys! Keep up the good work.

    Not where I am planning to drop my fort but I definitely won't be able to afford one by the end of September anyway.

    Plenty of nice tower spots though including the one by the moongate which I am sure half the shard will be going after :D

    Roughly 2.5 years old and no longer exists. It was a way to slow roll out some of the property to allow some fairness as players arrived and got started up.

    Hi Dhark,

    Yes, the map is up to date. You can use it for planning where to place a house (though it doesn't show things such as uneven terrain).

    Sorry for digging this up, but since this thread is still linked in the Housing Compendium pages i'd rather dig this one up than creating a new post ;)

    is there a way to see if a spot can be built upon before buying the deed?

    Like i have spootet a couple nice places to build my house on, when it comes to the interactive map but i can hardly believe some of them since they are so close to prominent moongates and such. So i was wondering, other than the interactive map, is there a way to see (ingame) before buying a deed, whether or not it will fit? New player here so i am looking to buy a deed rather spending money on auctions, just to get the most out of my money for now ;)

    Thanks!

    I don't believe there is a way to verify - before buying the deed - if a spot can be built apon. If you are planning to place a 7x7, just buy the deed and try out. There are dozens (if not hundreds) of places where a 7 x 7 will fit. You may also place a 14 x 14. I see quite a few places when running around where are 14 x 14 MIGHT fit. Other than that don't bother trying to place a large tower for example. There maybe 3-4 spots left in the world where that will fit, but it will cost you a lot of time finding them.

    BTW: To my knowledge you can redeem the deed for the original price. So you are not risking anything by buying and trying out. You should verify that (in IRC perhaps) from more experienced players.

    Oh, and if you don't know what a 7 x 7 or 14 x 14 is:

    EDIT: Also, a new land rush would be fine (either by adding new land or by deleting houses on "old" land, hehe, but don't delete the area northeast of Britain pls ;)

    Are the deeds blessed or can they be looted? If they are blessed and can be redeemed for full price, this would certainly be the answer i am looking for, else i might be a little bit scared investing the first 150k i own in a deed just to be pk'ed ;-D

    Yeah i was looking to maybe find a nice spot for the 11x11 2story villa, since the price is reasonable to pay for me, but it is already quite spacious and has 3 secures. I could probably do with that house for a long time. plus it has some room up front for 2-3 vendors to sell my magic items on and maybe expand in 1-2 more territories as time goes on. this depends on whether or not i can find a reasonably well located slot of course. oh well. we have bank holiday in germany on thursday, i think i am gonna buy a deed and just go slot-hunting :D

    Shosara, house deeds are not blessed on UOR. However, they are newbied. So, unless you have already started killing other players, they won't drop on death (There is a nice guide from Chris, who runs the shard: http://uorforum.com/threads/renaissance-guide-to-home-ownership.6057/). Oh, and I just read in that guide:

    "A. House deeds can always be redeemed for their full value. Find the carpentry shop and real estate agent and drag the house deed onto him."

    So, feel free to try out! Another thing: I see 2 Story Villas quite often in the trade forum. If not in absolute prime location they hardly sell for more than deed price (maybe +50k -> but can make that amount of money pretty fast). So if you don't find a nice place, just buy one out of the forum.

    Oh, and its not bank holiday on thursday. It's called fathers day and I plan to get very very very drunk! ;)

    Oh I know about fathers day, bank holiday is just a colloquialism for a public holiday and since I am no father yet, i have no right to get drunk yet ;) So... Ultima Online it is ;) Thanks about all the info and links you are providing! so one more question about the newbied thing: i have not actively pked or anything (and neither am i going to) but i did spent an entire night hitting my 2nd account character for combat skills and healing. it does not show any kills on my character stats though:

    http://www.uorenaissance.com/player/679660

    So will it be unlootable off me or not?

    Cheers again for your help!

    Ok, UO on fathers day seem to be a good choice too! (I am even a little envious! GF and child are out of the home, so I could play for hours and hours - but of course drinking is nice too ;).

    No, it won't be lootable! You would have to be murderer for the deed being lootable! So, as long as you havn't killed your 2nc account several times (and given yourself murderer counts), you have nothing to fear! You may also check out this guide:

    http://uorforum.com/threads/the-renaissance-murder-system.1450/

    Edit: I just noticed that we are still in the land rush thread, so pretty OT. Perhaps you start a new thread or just PM me. An even better way would be to ask on IRC. There are so many helpful players that have a much deeper understanding of the mechanics than I am.
