Keep & Castle Contest House Addon Policy

8/20/2018 Greetings, We have seen questions related to the use of House addons for use in Keep & Castle designs.  Your design will not be disqualified if you use various house addons, such as ladders, in the design of the building for staging purposes.  Note, however, that these items will not be copied into the house placement tool.  Only objects placed through the house customization menu will be copied over. Thank you and good luck to all our architects! UO Team
