R2: Preview of even more house features

It's that's time again - Release 2 of houses is upon us!

It will take a while to roll out the changes to everyone - you can leave your house and then type "/home" to be immediately migrated

To see the new features, reload your game client and visit your house (by typing "/home" in chat). The first thing you'll see is that there are no trees or rocks outside your house any more. But worry not - you can add some yourself with "cultivation". Click on the small sign next to your house to get a menu of options. Once you've mastered cultivation, you can try expanding your street and then changing your house exterior. You can also change the style of your home street. Sick of Groddle? Move to Uralia, Firebog or even THE MOON.

That's awesome, right? Wrong! There's more awesome stuff inside. Head to your backyard to switch styles, cultivate the land or expand your yard. Want to make your house interior bigger? Ok! When in decoration mode, click the buttons in the top bar to extend your house or add new floors.

There are a lot of moving parts in this release - we want to hear about bugs, what you like, what you don't like, areas we should expand on or improve and what you think we need to add. Go forth and test!

Questions? Please be sure to read this notes:

Note 1: All upgrades and expansions are free at the moment. This is only a test. There will be a housing reset before it is fully launched.

Note 2: If you missed preview release 1, read about it first!

Note 3: You can't move or delete gardens, rocks, etc., after placing them in cultivation mode. But, you will be able to do in the future.

Note 4: Are you missing some items? No, you are not. They are still there. In some cases, if things were placed near the edge of your yard or home street, you might have to expand a few times to reveal them.

Note 5: We are still testing and this is not the final release. There is more to come.

Note 6: Expansions to your land (yard or home street) happen one at a time. This may seem annoying/cumbersome/slow, but: you are testing as a higher level player when it is all free. If you were earning your way to a larger space over time, it would not seem thus because you wouldn't be doing them all at once.

Note 7: Can't find the upgrade (home-shaped) sign in by the back and front doors of your house. You probably have stuff on top of it. Pick that stuff up :)

  • I'm unable to do anything in my street.  The options are all grayed out and it says "not enough yard space."

  • I do not like that you can't upgrade items from the inventory any more -- having to drag them into the house first is a bit of a pain. I feel like usability was actually taken away from the Upgrading feature by making this change.Please change it back? I'll give you chocolate!

  • Quibba, you won't get to keep the changes since it's still a testing phase.

  • Liathea - I know they said they switched it to that so that when we're paying real credits we're not disappointed when something looks totally weird once it's placed.

  • We're still rolling this change out to players - will take a few minutes.

    Once you've been migrated your exterior street will look different and no longer have rocks/trees in it - otherwise, you've not yet been moved over!

  • Hmmm...I can cultivate now but everything says I need more yard space. How do I get that?
    Posted 2 years ago by Sunny Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Bees: Should I also clean my cache and restart the browser completely or is that not necessary?
    Posted 2 years ago by Lila Clemenceau Subscriber! | Permalink
  • @Merrylegs - Ah, I see. That makes some sense, but a preview option would be nice.

    Some sites call it Shadowing, where you don't pay for the item but a "shadow" version of it is available in your inventory for purposes of trying it out. You can place it or wear it to test how it will look with other items, but you won't be able to save it to your house or avatar.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  • Sunny: you have not been migrated yet
    Lila Clemenceau: you probably haven't been migrated yet
    Posted 2 years ago by Bees! Subscriber! | Permalink
  • So, do I have partial migration?  I can see the menu items, I can tell it to expand my house, but my street still looks like it did.  Are you doing it in pieces?
