    Whooo made it to a certain little town, scoped out my top 3 Village Water spots, none of them taken. 1 has the potential of a future Castle Water lot placed right in front of it and block my ocean view. So I think I am down to 2. And I know my favorite between those 2. Come on Midnight Central! Now my nervous wait begins now that I actually picked a spot. :eek:

    So... How bad is the land mass for a Village Water? Basically nothing? I wasted buying the balloon on sale?

    Plenty of reasons to visit particular towns in this thread (and expect more once people start getting their POTs set up). If you want to drive traffic to your town of residence then it is within your power to do so. If you're not going to have time for that sort of thing, and traffic levels are important to you in lot choice, try to live in a town with someone that does.

    That's the reason why I expect POTs are more valuable/desirable than PRTs.

    Well that makes me feel better that I am such a horrible decorator that I didn't buy many outdoor decorations. But unfortunately I have too much as it is. The original basic small hot tub, balloon, need a spot for basement (or it can be placed on docks?), got the Oracle Head, outdoor chess set, Yule Tree, Amplifier, one of the longboats (thinking it would look neat next to docks) and a couple of other things. Well I did get a 5 story stone basement knowing no matter what kind of lot my space would be limited, so build down as much as I can. Here's hoping I can at least place most of this stuff down in there, even if nobody is going to see it. Who is going to randomly run down into the basement? Not to mention the Vendor. Ugh.... So much to give up just to have a view.

    This isn't the first time I've heard a place like this described in Brittany Fields. It sounds almost exactly like the nice small area where I had my first few top lot choices. That was dashed Monday morning when they all filled up. :( But in the end, maybe it wasn't so bad. Someone dumped a gigantic lighthouse that looks so out of place and casts a long shadow on it's neighbors. :)

    Yes, we're on the tail end of the Knights and Knights Marshal period. I suspect most of them that are going to have already claimed.

    Because I was bored waiting, bored at work, and maybe felt like stirring the pot, I decided to rework the Lost Selection Group order.

    Main points:
    1. Royal Founders go first. Without KS backers, there would be no constant adding to an add-on store for everyone else.
    2. Founders go second. Again a nod to the gifts from Royal Founders, and thus a nod to the KS people.
    3. Benefactor. Late to the KS? Didn't get a KS backer gift? Well, thanks for joining in late, but you get to also place your house late.
    4. Largest deeds must be placed first.
    5. No longer a single Add On Lots + Secondary Lots group for everyone. First secondary Royal Founder lot placed at the same time as the first Founder. When the first Benefactors come in, the Royal Founder second (if they have one) additional lot gets placed as well as the first secondary lot of Founder. At the very end, Group 91, all other secondary lot deeds can be placed. Once again, a nod in preference to the KS backers first, then their gifts second.
    Edit:
    Ok I couldn't attach a file and the formatting stinks because I suck. But there ya go.

    ...I think the pot's been stirred enough, honestly. (I stirred it a lot myself)

    Just doing a quick analysis of the lots claimed in the spreadsheet versus those available. The spreadsheet has 1003+87 = 1090 and I think we are up to group 45 which by my maths is 2036 deeds that could place. This is 54%. Now of course the spreadsheet will be out of date, the people per group is also out of date and this takes no account of POTS. But all that said earlier in the process the percentage was a steady 65%.

    I guess earlier in the process people had more invested and were more likely to turn up and place. I'd love to see some official stats of this type rather than my extrapolated from imperfect (but publically available) numbers.

    So how does this go down for the lot 91 selection group on Aug 24? Is it a free for all? Are people going to be staring at the same floor stone and tappitytapitty away? Is there some sort of courtesy to this or do you just elbow your way in and clickityclick and claim that sucker? What if someone is standing on the stone, do you do a face-off staring at the time?

    Yeah that will be interesting. Or, a bunch of people Single Player Online, so beyond what you see on screen, people you don't even see also trying to claim some select lots maybe? Going to be fun. Or not.

    Well I figured while I am waiting, my re-made lot list done, nothing else much going on, figured I'd be nice and update my town on the spreadsheet. Maybe even a few surrounding. But when I go to the Town Crier, the lot list just sits there at Loading... doing nothing.

    Yeah I have tried that. To add to this.... Where I see blank lots, I am running into invisible walls. Like a house has been plopped down, but not loaded on my screen, just like the lot list won't load for me.

    Edit:
    I just got the "instance closing down in 60 minutes, do you want to join a new one?" So maybe me reloading now will fix this.

    Edit 2!:
    Yep that fixed it. Lot list loaded, the houses and NPCs are drawing properly, etc.
