    If there's time before Release 28 can I get the biome for The Highlands changed to the grasslands template? I've updated the online submission form but haven't locked it yet since I'm still waiting to see the new regular mountain template for comparison. From what I've seen though the grasslands may be closer to the Scottish Highlands look I'm going for. Thanks! :)

    If you don't lock the form they won't make any changes to your POT.

    My recommendation is to go in-game and look at other grasslands templates.

    Changes to POTs will now only be going through the process of locked webforms. You can see examples of existing biome templates through the example template scenes that are connected to Hometown. Hometown itself is currently a Grasslands template for view. :) Area: Novia (Novia) Loc: (480.5, 12.4, -306.1)

    With the current timeframe, even if you locked your webform immediately, you likely wouldn't see a change implemented until R9. I would advise doing so before R8 goes live, because POT change data usually gets pulled at the start of a new release cycle.

    Thanks! Let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns!

    I've seen the grasslands template already, it's the new mountain template I haven't seen yet. Last time I checked the PTS there was no portal to that new biome. Will that be fixed before R28? Is the new template being used in any other instance so we can inspect it right now?

    I don't want to lock my form until I've seen the new template first hand since it's likely down to that one or the grasslands. In any case it doesn't sound like my request would go through in time even if I did lock the form. No worries, thanks for the info!

    The Mountain PoT is still in development. We expect to have it implemented asap.

    Okay, I went ahead and locked my submission form after selecting the Grasslands template, so I guess we won't expect that change until R29. I finally saw the new mountain template on the test server. It's nice but it wasn't what I needed. The grasslands is a better fit for me. Cheers! :)
