    Purchase of New Player Owned Towns Expired July 27, 2016

    Currently, the only way to procure a Player Owned Town is by trading with another player. The process involves working with Customer Support and purchasing a 50$ Player Owned Town Transfer Voucher to have a locked (or unlocked) POT transferred between accounts. As of R34, seller and purchaser MUST negotiate terms for all items and rewards potentially included with each POT trade.

    Ownership transfers of a Player Owned Town on an account with claimed rewards will NOT include Rewards: Lot Markers, NPCs, NPC Buildings, Add On Store Homes, Broadcast Phonograph, Wax Cylinders, etc. Rewards will have to be traded in-game between seller and purchaser. https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?p=64383#Transfers

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The POT transfer voucher INCLUDES a one-time POT form unlock


    Step 1 - Seller will send a request to Customer Support to request a POT transfer to a new account (Purchaser). The seller can help to expedite this request by including a note that the required service voucher (POT Transfer Voucher only) has been purchased. Please indicate which account has the voucher.

    !!!: Receiving account (Purchaser) information (Email associated with their account) needs to be included in the transfer request. Also, for locked forms, please indicate that you would like the POT form unlocked during this transfer process.

    Step 2 - Once the POT is transferred, the new owner will see the transferred POT listed in the Towns tab located on their account page. At this point, the Player-Owned Towns Submission Form will still be unlocked. This is the time to fill out the form with new information (rename the town, requested location in game, dynamic, etc...).

    [​IMG]

    Step 3 - Lock the Player-Owned Towns Submission Form. Be careful, once it's locked... it's locked. It'll take purchasing a 25$ Player Owned Town Form Unlock Voucher and another request sent to Customer Support to have the form unlocked again for additional changes.

    [​IMG]

    Step 4 - Standby for Portalarium to change ownership on your POT. Ownership change could take 30 days or longer depending on the upcoming release schedule and developer priorities. Typically, to ensure POT placement in game in an upcoming release, the Player-Owned Towns Submission Form must be locked two weeks prior to the next scheduled release date.

    *The POT transfer request process detailed above was verified and approved by Portalarium QA/CS on October 18, 2016.

    Just the 50$ voucher is needed to move and unlock the form:



    In the interests of brevity of post you should remove this part as unnecessary, if included people would list them anyways:

    Hamlet
    1 Add On Store Village or Row House
    1 Add On Store Town, Village, or Row House

    Village

    Crossroads Village
    2 Add On Store Village or Row Houses
    2 Add On Store Town, Village, or Row Houses
    1 Add On Store City**, Town, Village, or Row House

    Town

    The process has always been 2-step (unlock and transfer) for POTs with locked submission forms. For POTs where the submission form is already unlocked, a single 50$ transfer token is all that's needed. The big change is really where the POT rewards are concerned... all Portalarium is on the hook to transfer is an empty scene that includes the now obligatory collocated Town Crier and Banker.

    I had always been under the impression the NPC rewards needed to be traded in-game, I think it was a mix-up before perhaps that they were not.

    That said, the way you worded your phrase you a first token to move, a second token to unlock and now a third token is required as of R34. It just read like you were saying 100$ as opposed to 50$.

    Right now it appears you are saying 75$, but the 50$ token includes the unlock: This Voucher is for the transfer of a Player Owned Town from one account to another. This includes one POT Submission form unlock.


    PS> Nice document, lot of work to put in all the hyperlinks and pictures etc.,pictures :)

    The way I understand the new change in service fees is that it will be a total of 75$ to get a POT that's already in game unlocked and transferred. If I'm wrong I'm happy to change the form.... I'll shoot Customer Support a request for confirmation.

    The announcement said 50$ - But you can verify if you click on the 50$ token it specifically states that the town unlock is included in the cost.

    I understand that the size of town determines how many NPC/NPC buildings which can be placed, but do you get all the NPC's and buildings, even if you have a Holdfast?

    And, thanks for putting this together. It will be very helpful for someone looking to get into a POT.

    All new POTs came with all NPC/NPC buildings, as well as a Broadcast Phonograph and a huge selection of wax cylinders, and even the same number of lot markers. Every scene is Metropolis ready in size and as the POT owner you have full control over where you establish your presence in the scene. But when it comes to lot markers, POT placeable decos, lights, NPC/NPC buildings, number of wax cylinders that'll fit in the Broadcast Phonograph, etc... that's all determined by the purchased POT size.

    Nice job DA.

    Allows me to go back thru and see if I missed anything on the transfers I did last couple months. Those Wax cylinders are a mess as are all the various listening devices! What I would give for a SotA smartphone with some serious storage space on it!

    This is great information, Duke. Is the owner/governor of the POT able to place the lot markers and NPC buildings themselves, or does Portalarium need to do that for them? Are there limits on things like number of street lamps, road pieces, and POT decorations, based on POT size?

    Owner are free to place deco, for unclaimed pot. Owners can submit map to port for them to place markers and layout. There is a deco limit for each pot size.

    Most of your questions are answered in the published player instructions:
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Z-svq1OvcZwViqGxFCKdjH3NCn2LTfLuGny5qaAqjTM/pub#h.cbo43mp42gv3

    Lot placement in POT's is done just like placing decorations, with marker objects (of which you get lots with your POT). Only requirement for lot placement is that the complete surface needs to be flat.
