show our Pirate Halls in our Crew/Flag page, please! Reply to this Post

Spin-off from (i.e. inspired by) this thread:
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=155995

When viewing the info page for a Crew or Flag, we should see a "Halls Owned" section, similar to the "Houses Owned/Roommate Of" section in a Pirate's info page.

It should be displayed in the same position as for the Pirate info, for the sake of consistency. That is, show us this info in the left-hand column of the Crew/Flag info page, just underneath the "Reputation" panel and above the "Politics/Shares" panel.

Which works within the game. I am referring to Info Pages, which are simultaneously available within the game and on the Internet. ;-)

Whenever I view my Crew or Flag's info page, regardless of whether I am viewing it within the game or on the 'Net, our Pirate Halls ought to be displayed there.

But thank you, nonetheless, for your info. I did not know that. I'll have to check that out, next time I'm logged into the game.

This isn't always true. In order for a house that isn't your home to show up on the list of houses, you need to either be in the same arch as that house, or your home must be in the same arch. So, if you set your home to someplace in another arch, it is quite possible you won't notice the Pirate Hall listing for a long time.

Hmm reading through this thread I am thinking of the following:

Put a list of the crew/flag Pirate Halls in the Private statement of the crew/flag? The info should be available for people who are part of the crew/flag in my opinion, but I don't think outsiders should be able to know about them.

Again, that would work only while inside the game. I want to be able to see where by Pirate Halls are via the Internet (i.e. outside the game).

There are no privacy issues with showing the locations of Houses owned by individual Pirates. We know this, because this info is displayed right now. Why should there be any privacy issues for Crews and Flags?

I might be mistaken here, but I am from the idea that Pirate Halls are some sort of a hideout?

Nope. They're a form of House, but deliberately designed for a group (i.e. Crew or Flag) instead of an individual (i.e. Pirate).

Hangout, yes. ;-) Hideout, nope.

Hideout sounded so much cooler though ;o

But ok, then I guess it should be publically announced somewhere in the info just like regular houses.

SMURF!


And on the topic, I wonder if it is very doable though. Pirate Halls are bound to the Captain or the Monarch, not directly to the Crew or Flag. Maybe it is possible though to link through the info via the current Captain/Monarch. Would be a question for a Dev.

Uh, no, per the article in the Wiki (see the link in my original post), it is the other way around.

The Captain of a Crew or the Monarch of a Flag is the one who pays for the Hall, but the Hall itself is linked to the group and not to the individual who paid for it.

To quote from the article itself:
http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Pirate_hall
 
Though they must be purchased by a captain or monarch, they do not belong to the pirate, but rather to the crew or flag...

As per my ORIGINAL POST (which I'm beginning to doubt you bothered to read at all before replying), for the sake of CONSISTENCY with the Pirate page format, we should have a Halls sub-section added into the Crew/Flag Info page in the corresponding location: in the left-hand column, just underneath the "Reputation" panel and above the "Politics/Shares" panel.

So, if you set your home to someplace in another arch, it is quite possible you won't notice the Pirate Hall listing for a long time.


Well you're right - in part... it seems to change and never display more than 3.. my flag and crew hall are in different arches. My "home" is my tailor stall on VE in Sapphire Arch, where the flag hall is on Beta. And it seems rather random. The crew hall is in Eta, Ruby Arch. When I checked I just a bit ago, I was in Diamond arch and it showed the tailor and the flag hall. A while earlier, I was in Emerald Arch and it did show both crew and flag hall as well as a shack I'm room mate in someplace in Emerald.

So, maybe since I'm both Captain and Monarch? now I'm confused. I thought I had it figured out....

checking my alt: gem sitting at Turtle with home in apo on Oyster, both Diamond arch: the Houses button turned to HOME only. Hopping to Jorvik in Ruby, Houses show Crew Hall on Eta, Ruby as well as "home" apo on Oyster.

Oh well...

for our crew and flag, I've put the locations for the halls in the public news. Just in case we fergit :D

I support this idea
I also was thinking seeing as the housing button doesn't work if your in a different arch maybe at the bottom of the crew/flag pages there can be added another button for the houses.

I do think crew and flag halls should be accessible from anywhere, especially since the ocean merge. It should not be dependant on them being in your home archipelago. It is like 'going home' but to ye crew/flag abodes so really ought to be similarly possible. Theoretically PP might lose some dub spending on whisks I realise, but conversely more people may buy crew/flag halls as they are possible to get to. Besides most use friends, crew or alts to whisk free anyway.

Displaying their existence on crew or flag pages ought to be a minor thing as it happens for pirate housing, and could be done in the same way.

I've deleted the posts which repeated a large amount of material already earlier mentioned in this discussion thread.

I've unlocked the thread but please keep in mind Prometheus's warning about "bumping" (meaning essentially copying existing material repeatedly).
