TB's town add ons. Why are they even around?

Post by son »

TB has not been active for almost a year. Another guild has inherited their add ons.

Their roads were in decay for quite a while, so why are the add ons still around?

They were around on OSI and should be here. They give the game a unique feel and reward active guilds.

I think there is FAR too much controversy over how they are obtained and maintained... This should be made a lot more clear.

It kinda makes sense for "pirates" to inherit an old village that is abandoned, maybe instead of paying start up costs they SHOULD have to pay maintenance to keep it up and running. I think that little dock area works pretty well for pirates too.

I would like to see all guilds have to pay upkeep costs for their town add-ons. People complain about no gold sinks, this seems like a huge possibility.

The way "blessings" were granted on OSI is far different than it is done here. Anyone with 5+ members, and a public vote can get add-ons added, and the addons themselves, way beyond anything OSI would have provided.

The only people who got this stuff in-era were really hard roleplaying guilds (for the most part) and the only establishments that were effected by this were ones that already had a TON of foot traffic. I dont mean "hey we have some vendors" traffic, or "we build a roleplay pub that nobody attends" traffic either. These places had people meeting up there all the time. The addons would decay with whatever house they are linked to as well. Here, they are almost permanent fixtures, and the land is littered with ancient addons that new guilds have adopted.

There is not a single "community addon" that players frequent on this shard.

This is actually a good question that should be placed in an era accuracy discussion.

Is this a programming issue? Are the way things placed here different on Derricks end then OSI? Seems like it would be easier(for cleanup anyway) if addons were linked to buildings...building goes poof then addon goes poof.


Is Turtle Bay completely defunct? Do they still have any houses up?
