    Tazar has many houses like that on Atlantic shard in southern Malas, Luna side. Hoffs has some on Siege N. of Skara Brae. It seems that you can walk from one to the other (sometimes using teleporters) but I want a few more details on how its done. If anyone knows where I can read more about it or watch on YouTube, let me know. I want to try it on Siege and have already picked an area in which to do it... One thing I've noticed is that one of the two houses (they are one tile apart) is a tile or two more forward than the other or more back a little. Thanks in advance for any hints or urls...

    Thank you Longtooths, I think I understand what you're talkling about... I've been running around looking at what seem to be called merged houses, and gonna take a few more look-sees (from Treasure of the Sierra Madre) before I start mine.

    It's all about illusions, but not many people are willing to give up their secrets on it.

    That being said, it's often a process of working between the two house and one being to the front, one being to the back as you mentioned, then lining things up and going back and forth between the houses to see how it looks. Gozas also play a huge part in it (like rivers connecting the houses etc.)

    I've never made one but I've toured a few.

    I really mean that. I am not so certain we need all of these many different forums.

    Wowee, thank you all! Especially Kelmo, who is a great advisor but is letting some self negativity into his life. Kelmo, everybody knows older people have wisdom. And you could never be in the way. Be good to your self....and thank you for calling me brave... Now I'm gonna see if I can find the Url Tina Small mentioned. She knows more about the "statistics" of the game than anybody...

    hi I try to make my 3 houses look like one I bumped the post for them on the house forum if you would like to look. There is only the one tile in between the plots, sometimes I have them all lined up in a row and sometimes I move a house or two forward a few tiles. I use houses teles to walk between the plots.

    I currently have 4 18x18s next to each other on the Atlantic shard that i recently purchased. I've customized them to appear as if they are one massive home with a garden flanking the right. I have a river running the length of all 4, and created the sides of each house to appear as if they are touching each other. If you would like to see them they are directly SE of the East Luna exit against the edge of the map in the first clearing. Its a work in progress and i will post photos once i get it looking decent, but its received great reviews from players so far!
