Moving Crate Question

    Ok so Im a complete noob when it comes to all things housing and am still using an old school template instead of doing a custom home. Im about to place a house in a new location and had a question. When I place a new home, my current one goes into decay mode I believe? During this time, am I able to use the moving crate to move all of my items to my new home, or will I have to manually move them over? Also, if the new home I built is not e a custom home (I dont spend that much time on my home) does that change the answer? From the housing menu, it seems like the crate is only an option for custom homes, and Im not sure if the crate is specific to each house lot, or is account based. Thanks for any help and let me know if I need to clarify anything.

    You have to manually move everything =)

    The moving crate is pretty much only there for things that get "blocked" when you place new pieces of custom building from what I can tell (I havent seen it used for anythign else so far anyway!)

    Like if you have a locked down box, and then customise and put a wall where the box was, the box gets moved to the moving crate =)

    Nah, doesn't take too much time really =) Lots of beetle trips is all ;)

    I just moved out of a castle into a 18 x 18, only took a couple of days - coulda done it faster, but I didn't want to =P

    You have I think 7 days? 5 days? to do it in =)

    pack horses are a good idea in tram however i would stick to beetles if moving to fel easier to keep 1 beetle alive with your stuff in than 5 pack horses.

    But then thats my opinion based on the guess that a pvper would be able to loot a pack horse?
