I have a high resolution upload that I will link soon when I get on photoshop and make the file size smaller. I did the above on all in ms paint and microsoft word 2007 :rice: mmm...5hours.

Please feel free to comment and add ideas! I spent a lot of time on this so I'd love to hear some feedback ^__^

You sure had a lot of time on your hands :rice:

Anyways, good job on organizing all this. This could very well be a new RO feature, but it would definitely take a lot of time and resources to develop this, and we'd definitely need kRO's help on this.

And oh, for the Rental Agencies, let Thors Volcano be handled by Cool Corp because that region is their area.

I love how well thought out and explained it is. The only problem I foresee is people claiming more than one house, and though there are many many houses in RO without warps in front of them, there definitely are a limited amount.

You could claim a house on an alt account for sure. Houses are intended to be locked by account, so you should only be able to own one. The things I have proposed above should be handle-able by our GM Team from what they've put out in the past. It would require creating custom interior maps (based on existing maps) which shouldn't be too hard for them, and the most difficult thing would be to create a script for the password and access options for the houses. I've put the things I'm pretty sure they don't usually do in the end sections of the advertisement :]

As for running out of houses they could just make a little dialogue box at a pre-existing but taken house at a different visual entrance. I think with all the physical houses that don't link to interior maps available this won't be a problem though. There are several dozen per city, masses of houses in niffelheim and prontera maps, tons in juno, and many on the world map that are just visually appealing. The apartment system is a spin-off of the inn system with some extra features and a waiting list.

This system focuses on making visual elements of the game part of a new game system.

Great idea but i think they asked for an event, not new content, i'd suggest posting this on the Idea proposal forums.

I love this idea. Having my own home in RO that we can use for a retreat, for partying other players and for guild events/meetings is a great idea. Got heartily sick of trying to have a meeting and having it disrupted by annoying players who wont leave.
The idea of changing clothing colours appeals very much, I am an individual. Would also lower the chance of KSing during events when parties run into each other and everyone looks the same
I love the idea of having my own mail box nearby that I dont have to fight thru the hoards to get to, my own kafra on hand is great too

Overall I love the Idea of the house and the apartments, they sound like fun for a wide section of players.
Would make a nice Xmas gift to us

This suggestion is all well and good, but a lot of what you've setup would have to be changed. I think for it to function properly, it would need to work more like RuneScapes system. (Houses located in an entirely different "world" so more then 1 person could own each "house", since there aren't THAT many abandoned houses on RO.

It's a good idea though. :lol: I think it would take WAY more time then by christmas though, we're talking a few years. :rice: Sorry...

This does seem like it'd be rather fun..but I doubt how long it'd last :/ Wouldn't it just be a fancy version of Gaiaonline with a little more stuff to do?^^;;;

Really like it, only problem I see is the cost.

It's a good price for high lvl-end game people; but a dream for mid-lvl players, unless it becomes a "guild house".

As a f2p player, I ahve to add that for Ymir, it should cost less, let's say 18~16m (more bonuses for premium)

Man, you did an awesome job putting this all together.
I really hope the GMs would consider working on this, but maybe not necessarily by this Christmas if it's too much to do in the next few months (especially with Renewal coming up). If they really do decide to take this on, I'd rather they do it right than rush it. :/

aw I liked this idea :lol:
especially since I was wondering the same thing on how I wish guilds could have their own hang out inside a house like that :<
castles are too far and big and have no cool stuff :rice:

I don't think this would be a good Christmas event tho n_n

Yeah, I was hoping for a funny response since I heard people get them from GMs sometimes for asking inane questions. I was disappoint.

I am working on a formal proposal based on a mysql database but I had this idea today:

Here's an idea...what about an instancing system? The player would talk to the house they desire, pay their purchasing fee, select a floor plan, and then be teleported to a duplicated prontera_in or juno_in map. This instance will be of unlimited time and the player will not be able to save inside there home, but rather will be standing outside it when they relog. It will auto-save outside when you go inside the home.

Once a player enters the instance for the first time and pays their fee, that house will be claimed. Other players may talk to the dialogue box but it will say "It seems like someone is home..." Guests may then select "Request entry" or "cancel." "Request entry" will send the owner of the home a "Request party invitation" prompt and they may choose whether or not to allow others to join them inside. The owner may turn off this ability to request entry once inside their home, so that spamming of party invites is not allowed.

Duplicating existing interior maps (up to 8 for now) for niffelheim, prontera, juno, comodo, payon, splendide, manuk, and rachel and naming them mapname_housingcopy will allow the GM Team to avoid the whole mess of creating 8 entirely new maps with 100 identical floor plans on each and individual portals linking all over the place.

Specifics of instance:
- player picks floorplan for first time
- enters mapname_housingcopy associated to floorplan
- has the option to disable dialogue box outside house
- has unlimited time
- if player logs out, appears outside (as I don't think logging in instances works).
- disbands and creates a new party called MyHouse#variable
- depending on kafra shop items purchased, players will enter the instance to have whatever bonus services offered available to them. The instance will check, for example, that you have the MyHouse Treasure KP item bound to your account. If you do, inside it will spawn the Treasure Box that allows you to open storage.

You could probably save inside but it would have to save the instance variable annnnd I don't know even how to propose doing that so I won't.

As for the Christmas Event: There could be holiday houses available for purchase in December only :rice:
