    I have been working on this project for a long time. A few years back I was able to get the property next to my tower, and finally came up with a design to tie the two places together into one giant tower. The one on the left is my guild's residence, the right is a shard history museum. My character is a faerie and loves nature, so the roof was designed to reflect that. Critiques welcome! :)

    I may be mistaken but i think what they did was arrange rubble mushrooms into the ring, which I found to be really clever and darling.

    Oh I did need help figuring something out. On the top floor on the very west edge there is a yellow origami butterfly, just to the south of it there is a small patch of blue buds that is reminiscent of the decorative plant on the plant menu gump and I was wondering what this was. :)

    Oh! I had a plant chart I nabbed off of the botany forum but I guess that was before they added it. Neato!

    what is that wooden thing on the right of the screen? a plow? where is that from?

    Wow, what a magical place! I too would like to know if that's a plow near the northeast (or what it is and how it's put together). I'm also really fond of that room tucked under the roof-garden out on the south-west end, almost like a bit of Suisse chalet. I love it all, really. Can't imagine how much time and work you put in to make it all work.

    Thanks for the kind replies! The houses are at 79o 38'N, 9o 16'W, Trammel, Lake Superior. It is almost a straight run east from the Yew moongate. I am still doing a bit of work on the interior, so please ignore the mess if you visit!
    To answer some of the questions -

    Most of the mushrooms are rubble, I mostly focused on getting mushrooms throughout the Magincia event. I have about 45 of them.

    The plough is a server birth plough - a good friend named Rakoth found it when Trammel was formed.

    I have played on/off for about 8 years and OMFG I needed a :stretcher: to cart me off after I saw this home combo. Something like this, the Devs or GM's should Bless like some of the old time establishments. I am utterly STUNNED at this design and plan on making a "dummy character" on the shard just to see it in person. Now here's my question lol... if a PLAYER can make a home looking like that, why can the designers not take time and design stuff a little better? Look inside some of the NPC houses/shops/banks/etc and they are so "cookie cutter" it is sad. It's designers like the one sharing the garden with us that MAKE this game so unique... hope the devs see this post and learn off it!

    Again, :ten:

    Terrible! Awful! you should quit and sell your accounts to me :D


    if you ever get bored you can throw some flowers in those trees, the new spread-out poppies and snow drops and poppy dust flowers work well.

    That is a truly beautiful house design.

    Now wouldn't it be great if we had a e/w facing wooden bridge like in Tokuno to lock down and connect the two homes!

    WoW! What a stunning home. It should be named "A River Runs Through It" after the movie. It looks like it be a wonderful trout stream. GOOD JOB!

    Devs should allow people to submit their creations for "Landmark" status. Your house would become locked down and be owned by the shard. Freeing you up to create more should it be turned into a landmark. Our population is such that housing is rarely an issue, and who wouldn't want you to go on and create more =)

    Goes w/o saying because your designed inspired this idea, but spectacular work!

    More! More!
