    I have to say I do not like all the farms or fenced in spots that are in Magincia. They are an eye sore to me. Doesnt sound right to have farms or whatever they are in a city that is called Magincia. Place cool looking small buildings or something else in those spots. Perhaps things that would attract players. Im looking for ideas. Please post your thoughts or any ideas you may have on this.

    The fenced in spots are construction sites, so buildings will be erected there eventually, altho the gates on many of these fenced in areas are too narrow for players to actually pass through, atleast they where on test center 2 days ago.

    Other then that I like the look of magincia, its cozy.

    These areas are fenced off for a reason. They are adding more buildings, which was hinted at in the recent HoC but they will come later.

    Maybe we will have some sort of event stuff to help with that building, but we all know how long these event arcs take for them lol

    I love the docks and the buildings there and I hope any new buildings are built of the same wood, It's lovely!

    The only thing I 'dislike' are the sand roads, The sandstone like in Nujelm would be better I think.

    I must agree with you there. Sandstone would be good or maybe perhaps marble. But Im leaning toward sandstone. Either one would be better than just sand.

    Hopefully when they "build" these fenced in spots they will change the road. Maybe the sand is just while it is in construction still.

    I like the farms. Magincia, city of magic, was destroyed for a reason. Now its lost the powerful magic, and they have to go all the way to farming.

    I think it should be called "New Magincia" tho, like New Haven. Or something like that.

    Only thing i don't like about it is that all the player houses will be 15 by 15 (hopefully some will make them smaller, i know i would do a 14 by 14 just to make it even) Having them all the same size tho just makes me think of a cookie cutter housing development.

    Yeah, that's as much wishful thinking as when ppl saw the KR male paperdoll and stated that since he's squatting he would probably have a 'war' and 'peace' art on it.

    In other words, that would be nice but I guarantee that's not their plan. You give them way too much credit.

    In theory it is called New Magincia. It is referred to as such in the documents and by their statements.

    However, they forgot to call it such on the Moongate. I insisted to my fellow players that they could not possibly forget that, then they did. *sighs* Oh well. (Team: Please correct this when the Publish goes to the other shards.)

    Now, in reply to the original post.

    What do I think of New Magincia....Mixed feelings. I've only taken one look, and I should take more.

    I am increasingly liking the idea of player housing comprising the bulk of the town. What will actually happen is anyone's guess though. It's a fairly big gamble, both on the team's part and (in-character) on the part of the New Magincians.

    The NPC part of the town....I think there is a way to have more content there and have it still fit a Humility theme. But it's a hard call; if they put too much there I guarantee you more people would say "this is a new Luna and it sux" than they already are.

    I find it appropriate that the New Magincians have largely put themselves south of where they are allowing outsiders (us) to build. If we build little neon mansions they can largely ignore us. I like the Inn/Tavern. Someone said there was a stable but I ain't seen it yet and why on earth wouldn't a stable be more obvious?

    Overall........Not too bad.

    I like the layout, but it would've been nice if they left a couple of remnants or ruins of old magincia. I would have left the old mag roads , weathered, with grasses here and there, missing stones, some dirt...

    As for the buildings, im in the ¨meh¨categorie. Not bad, but couldve been better. The player own houses will make or break it. So i guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Well I did put build in quotation marks but... yea I hope they do this right and maybe in the fenced in areas they can put in a park or a community pool :)

    They should recreate old Mag in a miniature scale in one of the fenced in areas ;P.

    I asked Mesanna like 10 times in game while on Test what the point of the penned in areas were and she didn't reply so I'm glad someone mentioned the fact that those areas are intended to be construction zones, however, I'd much rather see the land be used the way it is being used for plants. I really like the idea of using the land like we can use the water for lobster traps. I hope we can use the land more in the future. Gardening community ftw? lol

    Told a friend could end up Harvest Magincia.
