    As far as I know, The pirate ship was initially purchased so that it could go in the dungeon he's working on. When he started working with it, he noticed that it could easily be turned into a house, and got sidetracked on that for a bit. He mentioned it's now been turned over to Damien for a pro to make it into something really useable (in both cases). They want it fo have things like interactable port holes, translucent windows, a different flag, and more.

    Now they'll have a priate ship for pvp, in Chris's dungeon, and it looks like keep and castle sized homes.

    He also mentioned using it as a template for sea-battle scenes for when ships come online after episode 2

    Docking at your port soon
    The bigger the new ship, the faster the Dragomir Fleet will sink it”Grins”. I expect it will be full of rum, women and booty to plunder. R/Boris

    The architecture of ep2 is French? That reminds me of the house in Paris when I was there a few years ago.

    Maybe in some parts. I recall Travis (aka List Rostov) mentioning it was used in some of the new areas.

    My recollection about this house that List stated on stream is when it was bought off the asset story it came in pieces much like dungeons so they can snap them together to reconfigure homes and buildings for the new land. Things like that significantly speed up the development and allow our one artist to rework them and retexture them quickly

    Maybe it's the de Cayeux part of the equation. :)

    That's massive! It must fill an entire castle lot.

    More choice for keep and castle specific homes (which are not City lot homes) would be great.

    I just wonder how many buyers there will be. With non-founder keep and castle lots still taxed, are these homes attractive as an end-game goal for anyone but founders and guilds.

    Good point. I would of had Novia be French since that is where arabella oversees. But who knows what the overall plan is

    Are these the new paint-able homes?
    Can the inside walls be painted?

    I guess, that is the Lord of the Island only home which comes witht the bundle; so it would be a very rare home.

    Perhaps there would be vault edition of it, but right now its a L-o-t-i-only-home

    Now, this is Port - the bundle says “unique LoTI home”. They used a great word to infer this might be exclusive to the bundle, but don’t actually say that.

    So don’t worry- this house will be on sale in the store soon enough. Or maybe one that is shaded one shade darker than the bundle house, so it’s “totally not a pledge/bundle house” *glances at the new twin spire house*

    In other words, don’t blow your wad on a bundle thinking that will be the only way to get this house. It won’t be.

    Port needs more keep and castle size homes to entice people to spend money upgrading to those property sizes. It’s why the totally not twin spire is for sale, why other pledge homes will likely come back one shade darker, and why the house in the LoTI bundle will hit the store about a month after the bundle people get it.
