Open doors - wondering how this is done....

    I've seen several houses with either one or both front doors invitingly opened (permanently) and do not know how this is done. Anyone? It is a really nice touch.

    Oh, and I also saw a house with a spinning wheel constantly animated, without any players present. This looked very nice indeed, and this, too, I'd like to learn to do.

    I don't know about the spinning wheel, but the open doors are just from using different doors. IE instead of a south facing door use an east facing one, etc.

    Thank you! That makes perfect sense. lol Here I was, thinking there was some secret trick to propping open the doors.

    I haven't heard of any animated spinning wheel add-on. Is it possible that the house owner was simply hidden and running a macro to spin a huge pile of wool or cotton? I do this sometimes, and keep 3 spinning wheels in constant motion for 15 minutes or so before I get completely bored and move on to something else. I do those types of activities on Siege hidden often because we have bored PKers who enjoy releasing nature's furies and casting fields into houses to kill people inside, and usually the victim ends up being one of my idiot pack animals, as they rush off to "handle" the attacker on my behalf (yeah right, llama brain!) but end up committing suicide, which is highly annoying. The new pet AI has pretty much eliminated this, though - my packies stay put next to me now!

    There is no particular reason to do house chores hidden in Trammel though, unless the person just wants to be undisturbed for a while but not seem rude...or is macroing unattended (naughty!).

  5. Hi -
    I keep castle doors open with a barkeep. Place a barkeep in the spot right behind the door and it will stay open.

    I think we can safely conclude that all of your shard's problems since you placed that spinning wheel, are your fault. [​IMG]

    LOL. I spit some soup out reading that. Thanks. You owe me a new keyboard. Well, actually, it still works fine. The keys stick, though, to my fingers. Ick. Guess that makes me the llama brain.
