Room owners can set entry flags to allow various people (everyone, hearties, crew members, flag members) into their rooms without knocking when they are at home.

Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
[size=18]Semi-Official page 26 FAQ
In order to stop the unnecassary inflation of this thread, here is the semi-official FAQ, updated as necessary and posted every [size=7]couple of pages frickin' page. Please search through this thread before making requests. Also, check out the Ice documentation and the Wiki for further information on housing and furniture.

How many kinds of houses are there?
Ten

Will houses be available on Viridian/Cobalt/Midnight?
Yes. Ice is a testing ocean, where bugs in code can be worked out before they move to the main oceans. Anything you see on Ice will eventually make it to all the other oceans.

When will it be available on Viridian/Cobalt/Midnight?
When it's finished. This is a big change and it takes a lot of testing. Eventually it'll be released. We may know in advance, we may not. Be patient.

How do I get on Ice? It doesn't show up on the list of oceans!
Ice requires a seperate client because it is running a different version of the game code than the other oceans. This post from Cleaver details how to donload and install the Ice client. Despite what it says, Ice is limited to current subscibers and anyone who has purchased doubloons from the Ringers in the past. Doublooner access was granted in the last couple weeks.

How much will a shack/house/estate/any kind of house cost?
There will be an initial "purchase" cost for every type of housing. The list of known and projected costs can be found here: http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=390879#390879
Unlike businesses, there is no weekly rent for housing. If you sell your rooms back, you will receive half of the purchase price back.

Can I get a pig/turtle or one of those nifty little Egyptian things/treasures?
Right now special props such as pigs, turtles, and the treasures you can see inside of palaces are only available as prizes from OM tourneys.

Can I see what the inside of a house looks like before I buy it?
Not inside the game, no. However, there are many many people who have posted interior pictures of the various housing types. Look at this thread, this thread, and in this thread.

Can the chests be made to hold PoE/commodities?
It has been speculated & proposed many times that the chest items allow your home to hold PoE and/or commodities, like the hold of a ship. It seems likely, but there doesn't appear to be any Ringer confirmation yet.

Does the sword rack/mug shelf/wardrobe stop decay of those items?
Yes, though apparently the act of placing an item in and out of storage will cause it to decay a little. Cleaver confirmed it all in this post.

If I place a sword rack/mug shelf/wardrobe on a ship, who can access it?
Currently, any officer in your crew can access storage you place on your ship. Only by locking your ship can you prevent access to your storage.
http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=389900#389900

If I place a sword/mug/article of clothing on/in a sword rack/mug shelf/wardrobe, can I move or remove that storage unit with the tiems still inside?
Yes, you can both move and remove that storage unit. If you only move it, the items stored within will stay inside. Same if you remove it from the scene and then re-place it. If you remove it and then close the scene without placing it back in, both the storage unit and the items inside will be deposited in your Booty panel.


How do I paint my house?
As houses currently have no hold, the only available way to paint your rooms are through the automatic purchase of paint via the paintbrush. This means that you will be at the mercy of dockside pricing on the island your home sits on. On Medium and Outpost islands without an apothecary, paint will only be available if it is being sold from the palace or fort.

Can you tell me what is required to make lacquer/varnish/a table/a sword rack/etc...?
Read the Wiki.

Will I be able to set a list of friends who can come in and out of my house any time without invitations?
Yes. As of 3 August, you can set a list of roommates who have full access to your rooms, even when you're not logged on or located in the rooms. These roommates have full access, including the ability to move or remove furniture and to take and add from storage. In addition, you can check off various groups who can enter your rooms without invitation while you are standing in them: hearties, flag members, crew members, or everyone.

Will island-owning flags have to construct the various housing types themselves?
Yes.

Is there any benefit to constructing housing for an island-owning flag?
A shack will apparently be necessary to have greenies start on an island. Beyond that, no financial incentives have been announced or discovered.

Edit: Still more questions answered. Maybe we should make the search button blink. Or a popup. Or something.

Ok, I've heard this suggested at some point, but I can't find where, so: when we log in will we be able to log in to our houses and avoid all the nasty dock lag?

I'm beginning to think the only way I'll see the inside of a Villa is to put my poe in with about 40 other pirates to purchase one on ice to check it out. Anybody willing to do this? If so, don't answer here, Just PM me.



I have aquired a villa on Diablo.

It has:

A large open room upon entry, with exits NW, NE, Up, Down.

NE leads to a back yard with plants, a palm tree, and a little lake.
NW leads to a room with high walls, [windows on the 2nd level, like a ballroom]
Down is a large basement, which looks good for treasure.

Up leads to a small room with exits NW, NE, SE

SE is an exceptionally large room with rugs on the floor.
NE is a wide, but narrow room with nice patterning on the walls and windows.
NW is a room with a rail and rug, that seems to overlook the 'ballroom'

And that's it!


I'm in love with it already! Hopefully I can catch ye online there sometime so I can see it for meself!

No. The estate is supposed to be a surprise. There used to be pictures posted on these forums but they were removed:

According to the item's description, "Allows you to change the color of the lights."

Honest and truly.


Does anyone have a screenie of a colored light? Just curious, I'd appreciate it.

Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
I don't, but I did see one in action. It simply turns the entire screen to tones of that colour. (Similiar to looking through coloured platic wrap, or something along those lines.)

Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
Ahoy! I am just checking out the new changes with roommates and such. And I notice that even though you can allow a lot of people to enter without knocking, someone still has to be in the room for it to show in the list. This makes it rather hard to have a crew-house since one from the short list will still have to be arround to let people in.

Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
Changing who can enter the room (not the roomate section) doesn't do anything in the logs. Perhaps it should?

Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
what happens if you have 2 lights of different colours in a room?

Posted by VPeric at Aug 3, 2005 7:33:36 PM
Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
Well, if the pink light was on, using either that lamp or the "normal" one made it back to the default position (ie, white). So, I guess that there could be no "overlapping" of colored lamps.

I took screenshots of the villa, i'll try to post them later today. But personally i think, it's pretty and all, but not worth double the poe of a manor.

About the last room with different types of walls and rugs, i don't really find that pretty, i prefer things to match.

And another idea; wouldn't it be nice if we could change the color of the carpeting?

Re: *Hyperventilates* Housing on ice!
Something I'd like to see, and don't think has been mentioned...

I'd very much like it if we were able to name our houses somehow. Not the name of the "bazaar", but rather name the individual houses within. Perhaps only at creation, and at a premium, but if I'm going to slap down p640,000, then I'm going to want it called something a little showier than "Jyn's Estate". I think this will especially be an issue if we're going to be creating mansions and estates for crews and flags.
