Housing Gump

[Image: o88u41x.png]

System Overview
  • When attempting to place a home, the player (and his guildmates / partymates) will see white flames appear on any spots blocking home placement and blue flames on any spots that violate house-to-house proximity
  • All players can access the Housing Gump of a house by double-clicking its sign
  • The Housing Gump features four pages: Overview, Vendors, Players, and Ownership
  • Visitors (non-friend / non co-owners) will only be able to access the Overview and Vendors pages
  • Players can set a for sale price on the home that allows for a buyer to immediately purchase the house, all items within it, and become landlord to any existing vendors within the home
  • Vendors page displays all vendors currently within the house and can be filtered by several methods
  • The Owner of the home can toggle whether friends or co-owners are allowed to immediately place vendors in the home (instead of having to accept an existing vendor rental agreement)
  • From the Vendors page the Landlord and Renters can immediately collect rent/gold from their vendors (placed into the bank), access their vendor's menus, and see rental contract expirations / days of funding remaining 
  • The Players page allows the player to manage Friends, Co-Owners, and the Banned List including the ability to clear each entire list all at once
  • The Owner of the house can toggle the option to Treat All in Guild as Friends or Co-Owners which will automatically give any guildmembers of the guild affiliated with the house those particular access rights even if they haven't been added to the respective Friends / Co-Owner Lists manually
  • On the Ownership page the Owner can toggle whether their own name as well as the guild affiliated with the house are to be displayed on the Overview page
  • The Transfer Ownership feature prompts the target recipient with a summary window showing details of the house (house typesecure containers, lockdowns, standard deed price, vendors in the house, etc) and requires them to confirm this before a trade window occurs 
Housing Placement

When players attempt to place a house and fail, they (as well as any guildmates / party members) will see white flames showing the areas that were blocked by terrain and blue flames showing any tiles that violate house-to-house proximity limitations.

Housing Gump

All players can double-click a house's sign to open the Housing Gump for the house. Players who are visitors (non-friends, non-coowners) will have limited access to only the Overview and Vendors pages.

Overview Page

[Image: l3EGXz2.png]

The Overview page shows details about the house. 

If the house is Public:
  • The Owner, Co-Owners, and Friends can Kick Individuals and Ban Individuals from the house
  • The Owner and Co-Owners can Add Friends
  • The Owner can Add Co-Owners
[Image: o88u41x.png]

The owner of the house can elect to display their name on the top of all pages of the Housing Gump for players to see. They can also elect to display any guild affiliated with the house on this page (both the Guild name and Guild symbol). 

Additionally, the owner has the option to set an Asking Price for the house to allow players to immediately purchase the house if they wish (which will include all items within the house as well as taking landlordship over any vendors inside).

Players can click the View Details button to view details of any house that is currently for sale.

[Image: 4vfixsq.png]

Any visitors to a house will not be able to see specific numbers as to the contents of the house (i.e how many secure containers and lockdowns are currently in use) and they will only be able to access the Overview and Vendors pages.

Vendors Page

[Image: v9rFGTF.png]

The Vendors page shows a list of all Vendors currently within the house, details of each, as well as options to access / view each vendor and Collect Gold from it if it has any on it.

Visitors to the house will simply see the Vendor's NameShop Name, and the View Button (to open the vendor's backpack).

Friends / Co-Owners to the house will be able to see who placed each vendor and their relationship to the house; i.e. (Owner) (Co-Owner) (Friend) (Rental). They will not, however, be able to see specific details about how much is Gold Stored or Contract Expirations unless it is their own vendor or they are the house owner. 

[Image: 4msf4xQ.png]

The owner of the house can toggle whether to Allow Friends to Place Vendors and Allow Co-Owners to Place Vendors. If toggled, those players will be able to immediately place a Rental Vendor within the home, rather than having to accept an existing Vendor Rental Contract set up by the house owner.

[Image: DrdPb5d.png]

By clicking the View button next to a vendor, the Renter or Landlord of a vendor can launch the Vendor Menu for it.

All other players will open the Vendor's Backpack by clicking the View button

[Image: R2htxlY.png]

The Owner, Co-Owner, Friends of the house, or any player who currently has a vendor rental agreement in place in this house, can filter which vendors are displayed on this page by clicking these arrows. The filter modes are:
  • Show Only My VendorsOnly displays vendors if the player is the renter (but not the landlord)
  • Gold Stored: Displays only vendors the player is either the landlord or renter of (in descending order of gold held on it)
  • Shop Name: The name of the shop (alphabetical order)
  • Owner: The name of the vendor renter (alphabetical order)
  • Vendor Name: The name of the vendor  (alphabetical order)
Players Page

The owner of the house has the ability to toggle whether to Treat all in Guild as Friends and Treat all in Guild as Co-Owners. When these are toggled, and if the house currently has a guild affiliated with it, all members of that guild are automatically given those access rights to the house, whether they have been manually added to the respective Friends / Co-Owners list or not.

[Image: 8tQ0lxi.png]

Players may click the arrows to rotate through the different player type lists (Friends, Co-Owners, Ban List).

Players can click the Add Friend/Co-Owner/Ban Player button to add a player to that specific list.

Clicking the button next to any player in the list will remove them from that specific list.

Clicking the Clear Entire List button will immediately clear all players on that respective list.

Ownership Page

[Image: C8B0yoE.png]

The Ownership page features options only available to the Owner of the house (with the exception of the Rename House feature).

By clicking the Display Owner Name to Public button,  the Owner's name will appear at the top of each page of the Housing Gump.

By clicking the Display Guild to Public button, if a guild is currently affiliated with this house, the guild name, guild abbreviation, and guild symbol will be displayed on the Overview page of the Housing gump.

In order to Affiliate a Guild to a house, the owner of the house must acquire a Guildstone (available at any NPC that sells house deeds), lock it down within the house, and double-click it. 

If the owner currently belongs to a guild, the house will now be affiliated with that guild. Double-clicking the guildstone a second time will unaffiliate the house from that guild.

Selling / Transfering / Demolishing Houses

When a player purchases a house from or transfers a house to another player, all Friends Lists, Co-Owners Lists, Banned Players Lists, House Settings, and Affiliated Guilds of the house are immediately cleared and have their settings reset entirely.

On the Ownership page there are several ways to sell or get rid of one's home.

Demolishing a House and Receive a House Deed

One method is to Demolish the House and Receive a House Deed, which will remove the house and grant the player the housing deed back into in their backpack (which is non-blessed). 

In order to Demolish a house, the house must currently be clear of any vendors. If the house has vendors that the owner has rented out to other players, it will be up to the renting player themselves to choose to dismiss the vendor. Alternatively, the house owner can to elect to "not-renew" any ongoing rental contract and wait several days for each vendor rental contract to expire (which deletes the vendor) before proceding.

House Transfer

[Image: f2TghxE.png]

Players can Transfer Ownership of the house to another player, provided they are both within 2 tiles of the House Sign. The target player will receive a House Transfer window displaying details of the house that is to be transferred that they should review thoroughly before proceeding to the Trade Window step.

[Image: qIyNrDg.png]

Once the target player has clicked the Open Trade Window button, a trading window will open. The player should click the House Icon to verify it is the same house type from the previous page. 

It is recommended that any player wishing to buy a house in this fashion should go to the bank and ask for a Bank Check in the amount of gold that they wish to pay (bank checks are blessed) and place it in the secure trade window.

Place House for Sale

[Image: PbBAS49.png]

Another way a player can sell a house is to Place the House for Sale, so that the house's Asking Price will be displayed on the Overview page of the Housing Gump for all players to see when viewing the house.

[Image: qc5o84M.png]

When placing a house for sale, the player will see a summary of their house including the house's base deed value. 

The player will then enter in a value in the Set Asking Price prompt and click the button next to it to lock it in as the Asking Price to purchase the house.

To take the house off the market, click the Cancel Sale button.

[Image: DVyAY7n.png]

Any house that is currently for sale will display as such on the Overview page, showing the Asking Price and a button to View Details of the house sale

[Image: xMrg2nq.png]

When player clicks the View Details button, they will be brought to a summary page of the house which they should review thoroughly. When they are certain they wish to purchase the house, they will click the Purchase House button (three clicks are required to confirm the purchase).

The purchaser now immediately takes ownership of the house and becomes landlord over any existing vendors within. 

As mentioned prior, all Co-Owner / Friends / Banned Lists and house settings are immediately cleared / reset.
I'd prefer if you could demolish a house with vendors and the vendors inventory/currency would just get automatically added to the vendor owner's bank, as is the case when they're dismissed.

Having to wait potentially a month for a vendor to dissapear from an inactive player is unreal, and whatever reason you had to demolish will probably be a long gone opportunity by the time that happens.
I'd rather there be an option to flag the vendor as abandoned. In such flagging you would wait a shorter amount of time, say a few days or a week. The player that runs the vendor would get a notification of intent to move. Once the waiting period is up, if the player has not retrieved their vendor, the vendor will be moved to an unguarded 'bazaar' somewhere in the lands, until they decay or are managed.

Just a thought.
I'll look at some options for players being able to set a "Buy Out" price from their landlord to cancel the contract immediately. Or an option for the landlord to place a request to the renter to remove their vendor in some fashion.
I have some questions regarding house security.

I noticed those houses all have doors. Will houses not have any teleporters?

Do doors need to be locked manually, or do you simply set the security level on a door so that only accessed members can use it?

Can a player that is not accessed to a house step foot on the house? I understand they would not be able to use the door, but can they step foot on the house?

How does container security work?
