    Hi all,
    I've had a keep on my second account for a while now, and theres quite a bit of space around it. I think maybe a castle could fit there but Im not 100% sure and theres alot of stuff inside the house, so I do not want to take it all out and try to resize it unless Im positive a castle could fit there. If it did fit it would be a tight squeeze for sure. I was wondering if any of you expert house-placers out there could look at this and tell me what you think. My keep is the one the red arrow is pointing to. Does it look like a castle could fit there?

    Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

    Looks like there is no room in front or back to put a castle in, but on both sides of the keep looks like there is plenty of room.
    Best way to know for sure is do this go stand in the back of your keep by one of the towers, and count how many tiles there is between your keep to the one behind yours. You will need 8 tiles for the castle, and 5 tiles for the space between both 13 total.
    front looks like you can't use cuz of the forest, because you have to leave a space to be able to walk between tree, and castle.
    hope this helps

    I believe a castle is 32x32 and you have to have now 6 tiles in front of the plot behind and in front of any home and one tile in between side to side without any trees next to them so you must have a space between a tree and your house...

    I believe that on GL's I own that very keep in the same spot as you... and I've measured it many times... the answer is no.

    It's one or two spaces short. And with that keep behind you it'd never go...

    The only way a castle would fit on that spot is to have that tree in the back inside the courtyard...... which you can't do because of the keep behind you.


    Sorry.
