First, I just want to put out a huge thanks to the people who have worked hard to clear the Player Housing queue. It's one of those things that takes a toll and we're fortunate to still have such a dedicated QA staff.

Second, QA works on all parts of Avlis, and we're really interested in giving them as much time as possible to test and fix systems that the whole playerbase can participate in. So too many "But..."s in a PM that makes us choose between spending time on an individual PH or a server-wide system... well, you're probably going to lose that battle.

And finally, I love playing Avlis.

With new interior tilesets allowing for window vistas and the like (City Interior, Castle Interior), the matter of blanks (black wall tiles) in Player Housing is brought to light.

Tileset windows which come with a window vista would be best placed next to a blank square, rather than at the edge of the map, with the window vista sticking out of the tile grid.

The example below (window vistas sticking out of the grid) may cause an area to become corrupted:

This said, please keep your areas compact (only use blanks if you need to). Another example follows:

Common sense applies.

Micah trumps common sense.

Game on!

With half a dozen player housing imports over the last few months, and three more on the way, I for one am happy that Avlis is alive and kicking. This said, here's a little jingle from the Avlis Player Housing fairy. La dee da.

"Ghost" player housing consumes module resources as much as anything else. Keep that in mind, especially if you are submitting player housing for an "alt" character. If you are no longer playing a character, please consider re-selling their housing, or leave a message to Avlis Player Housing so that we can make arrangements.

If you are moving away from a pre-made apartment (Seafarer Apartments, Noble Mikonan, Mountain View, Leaf & Stone, to name a few), please announce the vacancy to the team. If you are looking into acquiring player housing or permanent storage and are interested in a pre-made solution, by all means ask the team. We got booty.

Thank you. :-)

* For prefab housing archival, see this post.

Hamlet wrote:What it is: Existing housing for PCs inactive for 3 years as of the project launch date will be documented, withdrawn from the live modules & archived. All players (exception banned accounts) will receive a month's notice. The housing can be re-instated upon player(s) return. (Launched May 2015)


Hamlet wrote:How you can help: Page us early! PM Hamlet (CC Micah for team veto if the matter is sensitive) regarding any player-owned property that you wish to retire or re-purpose early on out. Ditto for any relevant questions and special arrangements that you wish to make.



Here is a little form to help diminish the administrative paper cuts / bit bites:

Under "Current Player Housing Status", please outline whether your PC owns their own player housing or a part of other player/guild housing, pre-made housing or storage - anything that you believe to be of relevance goes here.

Under "Related Request or Clarification", please confirm whether you would like to retire the housing or retain your housing live. If you are also inquiring into pre-made housing, marketplace stall or storage, please add details.

Quick ??? - If you're currently active, have PH/guild housing/merchant you actively maintain you don't need to do anything? Or do you want that info?

If you have been active as of the past 3 RL years and plan to continue to be active, no need to do anything but keep on being awesome. ;-)

The Player Hosing Retirement project is now complete in Elysia and near completion in Wilderness. At the same time, we were able to remove a lot of obsolete content from Elysia and Mikona among other places; this should mitigate recent issues with importing new content. For those of you who have been waiting for related updates for a while, thank you for your patience! For those who inquired into Elysia and Mikona player housing over the last 2 weeks, please keep in mind that there is a small queue which needs to be addressed beforehand.

A note on Ownership added after related inquiry:

http://wiki.avlis.org/Rules:Player_Housing#Ownership

TL;DR (1) Be careful whom you give keys to; (2) Let the PH fairy and/or the Avlis team know, when you do give keys away.

So if your house is Gone Gone in the sense there's not even the outdoors area left where it used to be, it's probably due to the retirement project?

Quite so! If it's no longer seen and it should be there, it can be back within the week. - Please also check your Inbox, as Avlis Player Housing doesn't retire anything without notifying the owner (exception: banned accounts).

P.S. A certain shrine to a no uncertain deity is very much untouched, Tangleroot. :twisted:
