    Okies i have read some bad reports about this....However...I found it very simple and very easy and very safe to resize even the biggest of houses in the game....

    So i was lucky enough to place a keep on a castle spot on Europa( slight brag - but hey iam THP! ) ...Anyway decided today to go for broke!! and test the resize for the big daddy!!

    Simply to stand under the sign and say the magic words '' i wish to resize my house''.....Do NOT just demolish....

    You then get a flash warning board about the fact u are demolishing your house and any stuff will fall to the ground if u have not emptied it and the 7 day timer will apply if it applies to u!! and that u will get 1 hours grace to replace and resize your house and nobody else can place on it...

    So my keep dropped!! and only grass could be seen !!

    Bare in mind i only placed this keep yesterday so was not ''7 dayed'' ...this is a miss conception with a lot of people...You can place- demolish- place - demolish - place- etc, etc, and u will not be penalized- only when u buy a house do u get ''7 day timed'' penalty!!!!

    Anyways the tool does now get hot!! if u keep shooting like a machine gun..if it goes hot u have to wait a few minutes before trying again....alas just take your time with the new placement...dont machine gun the tool!!! u've got a full hour and u know that nobody else can place on your space in that time...

    Also its a good idea to mark your old plot with a black pearl reagent on each corner just incase u have to revert back to your original size !!!

    After 5 attempts with the tool and a big sweaty brow the big boy appeared before my eyes, !!

    Thanks devs!! for making this a very safe and easy way to upgrade the size of your house, i can recommend it to anyone. This is a vast improvement to the olde way were u would have to plainy just drop your house and hope nobody came by while u did so.

    Bravo bravo devs!!!

    Let me understand... you placed a castle in place of your keep? And there is a new way to upgrade.... (sorry, I've been gone for a while.. gone but kept active accounts for about a year.)

    Be carefull. I attempted resizing a house that I placed a few days ago. For the first half hour I kept getting a message telling me that I need to wait 92 hours before I can place. For some reason after a half hour it let me place. If I would have been click crazy, I could have locked myself out.

    Well i have had no problems with house resizing and have helped another player resize his meduim to a 18x18..AGAIN VERY EASILY..ONCE HE HAD EMPTIED HIS STUFF OUT...

    You should never get 7 day timer unless u have actually bought a house in the last 7 days, IF U HAVE LIVED IN THE HOUSE FOR AGES THEN NO PROBLEMS...and if u have placed it within the last 7 days u can resize,demolish,resize ,demolish etc etc....
    ***Only buying a house starts the active 7 day timer***

    FoF ...There is a problem if u have a moving crate in your house, this will go puff!!! if u dont empty it it first...Alas i would always recomend moving all your good stuff to bank boxes or freinds houses ,before u demolish first anyways, and make sure u check your moving crate too.
