    For an existing house, being traded between accounts having different storage upgrade levels, say 20% and 60%, or 40% and 60%, does the max storage/lockdown count adjust accordingly up or down as applicable?

    By what methods can you change the name after 'Owned by:' on a house ? I mean if you decide you want a different character on same account to display as owner, vs the one that you made the plot with?

    the storage level is based on the house owner's account entitlements. i don't know what would happen if account 1 owned a full house with 60% extra storage and you transferred the house to account 2 with only a 20% storage upgrade. i guess some stuff would decay but can't say for sure. i overloaded a house many years ago (we're talking about the days when you were lucky to own a 7x7) and i logged in the next day to discover a bunch of stuff went poof.

    the only way i know of to change the owner name is:
    • transfer the house
    • use a name change token
    • have the character you want to show 'owned by' resize the house (make sure it's empty prior to doing this)

    Really? They changed this? It's been awhile, but I remember dropping a keep using the 'i wish to resize my house' command and replacing it with another keep

    It works. I had to stand underneath the house sign (had not been doing that) and needed to say "I wish to resize my house" vs "I wish to resize this house". Solved my Keep deco issues. I just put an 18x18 back in it. Nothing else can be placed close enough to prevent a Keep from going back in this spot. Still works for resale (if anyone cares about Fel keeps when Xpac pops I suppose.)
