    Wonderful details...thanks for sharing that. Two plot continuous designs are always great when they turn out that seamless.

    I wish we didn't have to rely on rubble pieces to do some of the neat stuff though. :(

    -Skylark

    P.S. do you know who the designer is?

    yes, that's Atlantic Vlad's house - he loves taking people on house tours and believe me - it's SO worth it - coolest house i've ever seen/been through, and he's always thinking up new things to try with it. well worth hunting him down and asking.

    Atlantic...84°54 North by 8°17 East...if you leave Luna from the east gate, run east and go through the first large clearing, the houses are in the next one east from that big clearing.

    I love houses that are done up like that. I think I'll have to dust off one of my Atlantic characters and go have a closer look :)

    Thats Vladimirs house on Atlantic.

    He is mainly known as the Llama King.

    He buys up mass rubble.

    and what you guys are looking at is nothing.

    You have to go there.

    He also owns the house behind it.

    But if you go to the house .... he has a stairwell built into the pond...and the basement has even more amazing designs.

    Seriously, this guyd designs the best stuff.

    The house behind it is set to private.

    It's seriously one of the best designed houses I've ever seen! Kudos..

    When I looked at that cave, I thought to myself *hmm there must be a way to get down there* and noticed the walkable rocks. I WAS AMAZED !!!!!!! IT IS GENIUS.

    I'm with Skylark - it's sad that we have to rely so heavily on rubble to get that kind of look... I would love to do something like this at my house, but not only do I not own two close plots, I don't own more than 3 pieces of rubble and they're all walls. :( I wish that they'd give us more stealables or something to deco with (fallen logs and random small trees, maybe?)!

    I ran through the house the other day, too. It's very cleverly built! I loved the walkable cave and the log across the water. Everything was beautiful :) I just wish it was re-creatable without the expense of rubble.

    ran right over there yesterday after seeing this pic, what a fun place!!

    I've been planning on re-doing my side-by-sides, which already have a water effect, and now I gotta rethink the whole thing!

    great job, Atlantic Vlad!

    lol thats a good reason to put it on private lol but i don't think i will just yet *Sighs* And I do finish things But the supplies i need to finish it aren't easy to find and its driving me nuts. I still need another scattered hay the thin kind too and some stacked logs and at least 4 wood curls... lots of stuff... but with all the current duping I'm a bit worried.

    But it drives me NUTS when I run by really pretty houses and they're set to private! :( *makes cute face*

    If I were on Atl I'd offer to help find anything you wanted, but as it stands I have enough trouble deco-ing my own place :p Good luck with it, though! You are amazing!

    Hum Sizes are 14x18 on the left and 18x18 and what ever the largest plot a 2 story can be on the one behind which I'm no where near done with maybe ill get it public in a day or so... if i have time. Seriously though I need supplies!!

    Rubble Wall Candles Facing South
    Rubble Broken Boards Any Style
    Wood Curls somewhere between 4-6 of them
    Thin Scattered Hay 1 more of those either direction
    Gold Chess Board and pieces to go with it facing West East
    Full Silverwares Serverbirth Kind All Directions
    Rubble Wooden Stair Blocks at least 4 though If I could get 16 that would be great...

    Thats all I can think of right this second.

    If you have any of these things for sale on Atlantic Please Let Me Know

    i saw "Rubble Wall Candles Facing South" on a vendor in atl luna last night. prob still there. he had other rubble items, but don't remember what.
    get with me today and i'll give you those rocks.
    ask on rares forum for your rubble and hay. better chance there someone will sell than here.

    edit; i see a lot of the items you're looking for on sale now in rares forum. i also have seen them in the past.

    i got a guided tour today of vlad's place - just wow! its a good thing he was there to show me, cause his entrances were, shall we say, devious. i would never have found them on my own! it's given me so many ideas ;)
    As other have said, well worth the trip!
    What i thought was super, was he didn't use uber rares; anyone could do this. yeah, he used a lot of rubble, but rubble is still available, and not that expensive.
    And all the plants could be switched out with normal plants, rocks too. Really, the only thing 'rubbley' that cant be duplicated are ... um....well, nothing. everything he has could be switch with something else - a reward, token items, house design...
    i know his influence will be showing up in my next house!

    hey vlad i may have one of the rubble wood piece from maginca event pls feel free to pm or icq me - if needs be feath has my icq number - i got some hay too but im not sure if its the thin type ur after??? i just sold some of my rubble on rares forum but i have a few bits that didnt and i would be happy if u wanted to look through whats left and make any reasonable offer!

    Well I had to go visit, and the houses are just fabulous! I had to denude the treasure room a little bit as well, since I'm pretty broke on Atlantic. :p

    You can walk over granite. So I imagine that you're not actually walking under it, but through it.

    I checked out your house this morning, Vlad, very awesome! I had to make up a new character to do it. As I was wandering into the next clearing going toward Luna I saw a nice house. I went up the steps to check it out and dropped down into a hole. I couldn't get out for nothing except for hitting the Help/physically stuck option to get teleported. The house didn't even have a sign and it appeared to be part illusion, if that's at all possible. Wonder if it was a bug or maybe someone set it up that way to get a kick out of trapping nosey people, lol.
