    Second and third one are both pretty awsome imo.

    You guys found some awesome places that could be converted nicely.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the pirate ship and shogun ships turned into airships. Super niche homes, but I wanted to through it out there.

    Also, going with the greek theme, if we had a coliseum home that would be an awesome venue for a ton of different events and I would have them from village to castle sized.

    Good stuff. Forwarding to List for investigation. He was already scheduled to do some house work next release to create the Lord of the Isle castle so maybe he can add a few of these options as well!

    I'll request the elven globes in city and town sizes again (maybe with a less lazy entrance).

    Domes and spheres are pretty limited in small sizes give us some big ones so we can deco them!

    Who needs a house - just put all your furniture outside and sit on the lawn all day in Owl's Head :D

    So I was thinking about the Elven Globes more. Here's a few thoughts on it.
    • Need to be Town sized minimum. Otherwise it's like a studio apartment.
    • Not expired!
    • Could be cut in half and set on the ground as a dome!
      • Two buildings for the development time of one!
    • Could be a greenhouse, it's all natural light after all.
    • A Town and City size should have a cupola or astronomy area at the top. I would suggest the stairs curve up to it, either inside or outside. With a nice railing and a flat area just big enough for a couple sofas or an LB telescope.
      • Or variant, cupola OR sitting open seating area.
        • What if the elven greenhouse could be placed on the roof if people wanted it? Then you've got a seating area (no greenhouse) that they can converted to a cupola (greenhouse).
    • A third floor, if it's big enough (or a City home) should be an open loft. Only if the building is tall enough for headroom in both!
      • Possible walled loft variant so we can have either a balcony style or walls so we can mount dragon heads there. If no variant leave it open, we can use our own walls.
      • Experiment with it being over the entrance vs. opposite the entrance. Which gives a better view? With it over the entrance it frames the wide open picture of the outside. With it opposite, it cuts that view but lets us customize the first impression.
    • Don't bother with walls on the main or bottom floors, spheres/domes are variable enough that walls will just mess up our ability to do stuff. We'll use our own.
    • Domes and spheres are far more energy efficient than boxes. If enough of us use them we may not have to deal with climate change in episode 5.

    Those elf/shogun/viking/kobold style houses were still available before the COTO merchant changed to open Crown Shop window. I am not sure if those houses really expired as Hometown still showing those houses.

    I have upgraded to a town lot few weeks ago and waiting for a nice house too.

    @Chris, if you're looking for ideas, I'd like to point out a post I made some time ago; a Proposal for a Town Lot sized Keep Home.

    Keep in mind there are some deeds that were purposely expired (such as the town sized shack in one of the above pics) to make them rare. Were at a point where most of the variety of homes are either expired styles, or only benefactors/founders have access to them.

    We do need more *new* town sized homes though. I also agree - enough boats and water things - more land homes pls.

    I especially want more craftable homes. Simple homes with a variety of room layouts.

    Well then we need a couple of fresh craftable homes. Town and city at least but new craftable houses for all sizes would be awsome.
