3rd August 2015 - Player-Owned House Improvements

Recommended Posts

Player-Owned House Improvements

 

Make your home truly your own with today's player-owned house improvements.

First and foremost, we've broken down the house style options to give you more freedom to determine how your house looks.

Where you could previously choose just one style, you can now independently decide on four different elements:

  • House structure:
    • Basic wood
    • Basic stone
    • Whitewashed stone
    • Fremennik-style wood
    • Tropical wood
    • Fancy stone
    • Dark stone
  • Grounds:
    • Rough grass
    • Mown grass
    • Desert
    • Barren earth
    • Tundra
  • Dungeon:
    • Rough stone
    • Smooth stone
    • Desert
    • Mountain mine
    • Tropical cave
    • Stone blocks
  • Lighting:
    • Day
    • Dusk
    • Night

You can change all of these by speaking to any Estate Agent, or by right-clicking him and choosing the appropriate menu option.

We've also made a batch of tweaks and fixes to make your RuneScape home life more convenient and enjoyable:

  • When attempting to build a second Aquarium or Games Room, you are now prompted to move your existing one. You are charged as normal for creating the new room.
  • Loading times have been improved when you leave and re-enter your player-owned house in the same log-in session.
  • Sir Renitee's chat has been streamlined.
  • Building mode can be toggled via a right-click option on the house's exit portal.
Priffdinas Fixes & Tweaks

 

There's a bumper batch of improvements and bug fixes for Priffdinas today, too.

Permanent dark crystals and Max Guild portal changes as rewards from Morvran's challenge are particular highlights of this update, as well as numerous usability tweaks to make your time in Prifddinas all the more fun.

See the patch notes for full details!

It's nice to see my favourite skill get a little attention, though this is a far cry from the rework that construction desperately needs, unless they fixed all the bugs while I wasn't looking. Not even a rework, but just all the stupid stuff where they didn't take an extra week to give the assets a good polish. I'd love the skill to be reworked, but I'd also love for it to not be 95% complete too. This brings it up to 97% I'd say :P

What the skill needs the most, imo, is being able to move rooms without having to destroy them (which a few of them do)

For the slayer challenge?

 

Not possible - first and foremost the challenge is to kill 9 specified bosses and bring all owned crystals to each subsequent kill.

 

Secondly even if the challenge was JUST collect the crystals it wouldnt work as they are different items - in the challenge you gather dark crystals the perma reward items are black crystals.

Just a PSA they are going to keep the day light bug and possibly add a toggle or some king of shift between the two.

Also off the back of this day/night cycle and weather cycles have been bumped up priority lists. One team might be looking to do one of them in some free time, day/night cycle being the more likely based on strawpoll.

It is still up in the air though whether it'd be a 'pick your light level' or a literally time cycle of lighting that'd run in the background.

I think having it as an hourly cycle rotating every three hours seems feasible.

I personally prefer the toggle option to pick the scenery you like.

Personally I like the idea of a time cycled akin to what minecraft does.

 

Have a night skybox with a day skybox inside it.

Then have a sun and moon on exact opposites in a 360 skybox that rotates round then link the rotation to lighting levels and how transparent the inner skybox is.

 

Resulting being smooth transitions through lighting levels with moving sun and moon and nice blue sky that fades to stars at night.

Can even bung a nice cloud detail skybox within that for extra details and a skybox that acts as a colour and levels filter to allow area lighting to differ (ie it'd be darkening and green-ish hue for the morytanina area so u keep the dull decaying light look and days and nights would be both darker compared to say falador.

Could make a full cycle take maybe 2-4 hours just so its not too jarring change, but its quick enough that you can notice it in normal daily play.

 

But then maybe offer a toggle between dynamic and static and allow a few options for the static mode like day, night, dawn, dusk

As long as they don't make 'night mode' in dungeons.

 

Any kind of dungeon with lighting detail on high... can't see anything. So dark.
