Much faster housing decay.

There's a few prime spots that are being held by people who don't play on the server anymore but are holding onto those plots for w/e reasons.
Perhaps reduce the timeframe down from 6 months to 1 or 2. Then perhaps add an additional time requirement for a person to be logged into game & NOT just sitting AFK in Luna bank.

Reducing the decay time might help with that but I would go a step further and reduce the number of houses on any given account to 3 or 4, I don't know why anyone would need more. On OSI you get one and on the last free shard we played you got two, you were only allowed one account each as well, my husband and I had 4 between us and that was fine. I quite enjoy house decorating but he's not so bothered.

I hope it stays as is. I don't need any prime locations and people are going to be people. The time allows for someone to have life stuff happen and not have to worry about refreshing their house right away. With vendor search, people can find your items and travel to your house even if it is out in the boonies. Eventually those that don't play will grow bored with renewing or forget to renew. Just my 2 cents.

The places that I consider nice spots I'm pretty sure nobody else would want, possibly people want spots in Luna, but vendor search makes those spots less valuable, I haven't really gone browsing Luna shops for many years. I actually find Luna pretty ugly so I wouldn't want a spot there if I was offered one for free, I like the coast for my boat and trees and a mountain nearby for gathering resources.

if i suddenly had powers, i'd delete all the housing in Mistas as I think 99% of the housing there is for sale by players I'm told are long gone from playing and try and build a secondary social hub there, maybe move the pet vendors there as Magincia is ass ugly too :p

oh how I dream :)

I still say accounts with more than say, 3 houses, should be levied a hefty server tax for maintaining those "additional" houses.

Unlimited housing = silly
The tax idea for players over xyz houses sounds good to me but Dam might not be interested in trying to code that.
I can see wanting an extra house for trading/decoing but we ARE allowed i think 4 accounts on this server per ip#
I personally have 3 accounts & 3 houses.
Am somewhat of an active player & since i've had little luck getting new players to come here, i try to get those that do to stay a while.
Housing should be for those whom are active on the server.
Sure IRL things can happen (military deployment/computer dying)
but a lot of people seem to have discord on their phone & could DM Dan if they were going to be out of the loop for a while to make exceptions.
I know Dan likes gold sinks, a scaling tax on housing beyond 3 per account sounds like a good one to me.

Im not trying to put words in Dans mouth, but i do remember this discussion coming up multiple times over the years, and from what I gather, limiting accounts to set number of houses, would only effect those who havnt reached that cap yet.. as those of us who enjoy crafting and housing would be grandfathered, so all those house plots out there, would still be there.. 2 of the biggest house hoarders on the server are also the two most afk players on the server, another supposedly quit and is selling all thier shit, another doesnt want to sell houses, cuse he doesn't actively try.. or cant ever come up with a fair price.. Im a fan of reducing the time in which it takes for a house to decay, and make it retro-active ;) i played on Pandora years ago, they did this... and it did the trick, NTM the day it happened was frikin crazy! so much loot from houses just laying around! :D

My vote is for shorter time limits on house decay, and make it retro-active.

Maybe give us the option to "tag" 1 house per account. The tag leaves that house under the current IDOC timer. Every other house gets placed on an accelerated timer.

Simple, make decay rate 3 months in certain regions: Luna, Zento, other prime/exclusive locations (decided on), and Mistas. Keep all other areas 6 months.

I've had a run around the different facets and I'm pretty sure we are heading into IDOC-armageddon in a month or two :D

As a player who is on hiatus, but planning on returning, I'd be really frustrated if I came back to discover the timers were changed retroactively. Just because I can't play now doesn't mean I don't want to return and enjoy my luna house.

There are no intentions of changing any aspect of housing on Heritage at this time. This does not mean stop the discussion. Should a need ever arise ideas could be taken from this thread.

If, in the future, this ever changed though the first step would be announcing the change 6 months in advance to account for current decay times.
