i think it would be a really nice thing if we could go onto a street on any world, find a house with a door that we like and go in and have the option to buy it. maybe have the option to turn it off and on so we dont keep accidentally going in and out of houses.
like say, we would really like to have a house actually on Firecat Lane or in Caer Lyon or somewhere else... we find one we like and go in the door. check it out and then buy it right there from the housing lady if we like it. then to get there, we can equip it so we can port or go to that area and walk in the door, like we do the dorms.
we couldnt buy a house with a sigil or one that already has an instance in it like Anna Flamewright in Firecat lane. it wouldnt have to be big, maybe two small stories and a small backyard. maybe 50-100 items inside and outside (still with the option to buy 50 more).
each area wouldnt have more than maybe 3 different floor plans. but there would be housing in each area. even the dark cave and haunted cave. you could just start with the Wizard City world and see how popular it is and then expand it to other worlds. Krokatopia might be a little hard but that could be modified a bit. like "secret doors" in the pyramid in those alcoves or something that lead to little housing places. (or course the backyard would still be "inside".
it could have a whole seperate housing limit attached to it seperate from other houses. you could have an additional 3 houses like this but with no way to increase your number. or however you would wish to do it.
since it would be like the dorms, each house could have multiple owners. you could leave the house "unlocked" meaning that if you were the last owner to enter the house, your house would be open to visit by anyone who comes along to see it until you either lock it or another owner goes to their house.
i thought this would be a great idea since i have always wanted to do this and know a lot of other players would like to as well :)
I am in favor of the possibility to having a home on Triton Avenue or Unicorn Lane. Maybe a nice cottage in Marleybone down the street from 221B. Just being able to say Sherlock Bones is a neighbor would be fun. There is also the possibilities of one of those Dragonspyre fix-er-uppers just to show off some style. Maybe even a small hut out on the Savanna in Zafaria as a little hidaway to kick off the dust of a days questing. I'll give two thumbs up to this idea.
its an awesome idea ,only thing is would it interfear with the housing system that is already there i know i would be upset if it caused problems with the system thats already in place due to having to rework the housing system
i am thinking now (TONS of great houses though) a house in marleybone. one of those skinny 4 story places. street access from reagents square and roof access leads to one of the streets :) that would be cool. but i am kind of wanting an alcove entrance in Krok, that leads to an underground hide-a-way. or a real creepy house in the haunted cave (with built in spiders :p ). or an avalon place with one of those creaky wooden stairs that just go on and on :p
