    So, I've been playing on siege where, according to Deadbob, there are 77? Castles, and dozens of keeps, and so on and so forth. I have a soft spot in my heart for classic style houses, I have a Tower on Atlantic. I have trudged up the steps to the roof of that tower for how many years now? So I had a flash of ingenuity, and here it is...

    How about carpenters or tinkers or a combination of the two, get the ability to craft in-house teleporters, a one tile add-on, same art as the customization teles. They would also work the same way, you would need two of the same pattern for them to work. I've been told that Vet Reward/Rechargable House teles will work within the same home, exactly like I'm talking about, so the coding for that should be all there, right?

    I feel like if we ever got something like this, it would be with charges, so if that's the case, make it something simple, arcane gems, or teleport scrolls. In addition, make sure the ingredients to craft the tiles aren't insane (academic bookshelves anyone?) and make sure it's a good charge/item ratio, at least 20/1.

    So that's basically it, I invite you to criticize, enhance, and ponder over my idea! And then get it implemented!

    With the rechargable ones being sold in the store, I don´t see this happening. Sorry.

    I like it, If there is one thing I hate is walking into my keep and having to run up stairs and then back down just to get to my crafting room in the front corner. Yes I use Guillotines to pull me directly into that room but then I cant get out without running.

    Obviously these would only work in the same house and not be able to go to different houses like the vet reward ones do.

    Yes but that's meant to be house to house, which is something special, not something that can be accomplished through house customization. This is an option that throws a bone to those that like classic housing, not just castle/keep owners.

    Well I'm ok with in home teleports being craftable..but it shouldn't be a simple craft IMO..maybe even one sold at the magic vendor for 300k comes with 1000 charges or craftable for
    1000 teleport scrolls
    2 runes
    Blank tiles - craftable by a tinker (can be colored)

    Wouldn't hurt origin sales for those are house to house..rechargeable infinitely..these are in-house and break after 1000 uses

    ..nice gold sink..positive addition to game that's usable by everybody

    Flash of ingenuity or chronic laziness?

    You want classic with modern convenience? Hrmmm...
    And at the expense of time wasted designing unnecessary items with potential bugs?

    Makes no sense to me so no thanks.

    I think our current game mechanics allow us to do what we need. Here is my setup:

    The circles of the same color show which teleporters go together. The first teleporter is so I only have to open one door and if the house was ever public then if someone slipped in they could only get into the foyer and not further due to security settings on the teleporter and the second set of doors never being opened.

    [​IMG]

    The green circle takes you to the top of the castle so I can access the upstairs garden sheds and raised garden beds. The non-cricled teleporters go to my house in front of the castle and my house behind the castle.

    [​IMG]

    Each corner of the castle is setup like the corner displayed in the picture. It was all about maximizing space and not having to use stupid ladders to get to the roof.

    [​IMG]

    Realistically this works very well. I used to have a castle on Siege and did something similar with the front door. I didn't really need more coverage than that though.

    Has bracelets of binding been tried? Imbue your favorite mods on one to wear. The other bracelet is worn by a vendor in the area to ease passage to. If not a vendor then a maniquin.

    All classic designs just need to have teleporters added to them that need the easement. Server up and BAZINGA the headache is over.
