    Alrighty,

    I searched a little bit and haven't had much luck.

    Anyways, there are some houses that fell around my home and I'd like to go big as I can. 18x18 hopefully haha.

    My question is:
    I already have a house, now if I:
    Open up my house tool
    Place a house

    Will my current house automatically become IDOC (or whatever) or will the placement tool give me a warning about my old house?

    I don't want to accidentally place a house and lose my old one before I move everything out.

    Hope I'm making some sense here.

    about two weeks ago I resized a house, and during the process attempted different fits to make use of as much as possible.... at one point I was testing corners with a 7x7 legacy home and without warning the house sat down and placed.... I got no confirmation gump whatsoever, it simply placed

    was not a problem for me, the resize option kept the plot for me for about an hour, so after the timer expired I just resized that little thatched-roof cottage, but this was not in a prime location and I had no competition for the site

    point is, the placement of homes is not entirely reliable... if you can, clean out your current home and use the resize..... worst case is that you'll end up with a home the size of your current house

    So it's Russian Roulette pretty much eh?

    Well, I can always make another account. :) haha

    You can resize your home.

    Stand under the house sign and say "I wish to resize my home" (I think). This gives you 1 hour to do so and one attempt. Since you have an hour you can take your time. Empty your bank of gold so if it tries to place on you, it can't. Once you have gotten the max size possible, take a screenshot or use a placemarker on the ground (bandages or whatever under where the house sign would go) then put the checks back in your bank and place.

    Keep in mind that your stuff when you resize will fall to the ground. So put it on spare characters or in packies/boats/banks/friends/etc. It's a good time for some spring cleaning too! :)
