  6. Perihelion Lightweight Will Die Quickly lol
  7. Congrats to all the Scavenger Hunt winners from last night! A special congrats to Madnath for winning the exact wrong wagon lol
  8. Thanks so much for the great feedback! I hadn't thought about the paving issue, that's a great point and I'll be sure to get rid of the gravel and get some grass planted. As for the gates and locks, yeah it's all off-deed so it sounds like that should be okay. After making my post(s) yesterday, I went back and re-read through all of your previous comments, and I agree Ayes, I will be setting the beds to free, not Rentable. I want to encourage people to come and stay, especially new players. Thanks so much for the encouragement! - Perihelion
  9. Campsites 1 and 2, my test builds and rough template for the campsites. Each is 3x3 tiles with access to a single 1x1 building (outside of the 3x3) each, which will each contain a rentable bed. A 1x3 strip is paved with gravel, starting at the fence gate. I figure campers can attach gate locks if they wish to secure their site. And the view from the road, before adding the rest of the outer walls: And this is the rest of the large open area I have already cleared:
  10. So, a quick update on my progress here... I have found a location in H24 which, if not ideal, has turned out to be a terrific location for me. I am currently working to connect to the Highway system, as well as developing the actual campground itself. The Campground is located just west of my deed, on top of a mountain (more or less), on a peninsula near Summerholt and the NEXA Marketplace and Sanctuary. I will have easy access for boats as well as Highway access. Pics coming soon, waiting for daytime on Xanadu
  11. Hey all, I read in the release notes that statue fragments would no longer be classified as "container" fragments, but I started and completed 2 reports last night, and sifting through the cache fragments that I recovered, I had 2 statue fragments identify from "unidentified container fragments". Just thought you should know. [15:10:24] You carefully start brushing away bits of dirt and rock from the unidentified container fragment. [15:10:31] You successfully identify the fragment as a statue of hell horse fragment [1/93]. [15:10:35] You carefully start brushing away bits of dirt and rock from the unidentified container fragment. [15:10:42] You successfully identify the fragment as a statue of unicorn fragment [1/80]. Let me know if there is anything that I can provide to help! - Perihelion, Xanadu
  12. Some great stuff guys! I will be doing some exploration and mapping in my immediate surroundings, think I have a good area between my deed and my neighbor's that will work well for this. I'll have to do some testing in DeedPlanner with the 1x1 structure idea, I might be able to integrate rent-able beds into the actual campground area if I did it that way rather than having to build a Motel-style building (super cheap probably, maybe a copper or something). I'll try to get some planning pictures up here soon and see what you guys think! - Peri
  13. +1, and I'd be good with either option, they both have their merits.
  14. And the winner is Niki! Please PM me your character name and I will COD the item to you as soon as possible. Thanks!
  15. Hey everyone! I'm curious if anyone has taken the time to create a deed dedicated to Archaeology, say an area with a lot of deed history, with fairly open permissions which allow people to come in and investigate, but not build or terraform or anything like that. It seems like it would be a neat idea, obviously if it were too small or if too many people visited it would get cleaned out pretty quickly, but just curious if anyone has tried something like this yet. - Perihelion, Xanadu
  16. I went ahead and added the half-hedges to the front as well, I like how it looks.
  17. Thanks for the great input, Ayes! I suppose I could do a small-ish deed with either rentable rooms or maybe cabins, and have the 'campground' be off-deed and hope for the best. As for location, yeah I'm thinking Glasshollow, or maybe see if there's any room near the Amish Estates area. I've been playing around with some campsite concepts in DeedPlanner, here's an example of what I'm envisioning: Campsites would be 3x3 tiles, with a 1x3 strip of that being paved with gravel, for parking wagons and/or carts. That leaves a 2x3 area to pitch one or more tents, build a fire, secure a few locked containers, and set down whatever furniture you brought with you. Maybe some larger campsites (5x5 or larger?) for groups of travelers who need a temporary respite from a long journey? These would be very temporary sites for people, I would imagine, but it would be a safe place to chill out during a long trip, maybe you're moving deeds and you have to log out for the night, or it's getting dark and you just need a safe place to hang out, imp your stuff, maybe cook some food or craft a few things. The campground would be off-deed, so you would definitely want to have locks on anything that you unload or whatever in your campsite, and technically people could tear up the campsites, but I can have some signage at the entrance and stuff to try and minimize that. I do know that setting up the permissions on the deeded area is going to be tricky, in order to allow people to use stuff like ovens/forges, but it should be doable. Some really great input so far guys, please keep it coming! - Perihelion
  18. That makes sense, Zethreal. I hadn't thought about the tent-on-deed problem, that's a great point. I guess if I were to do this, maybe I would just have a tiny deed with the communal workspace area off to one side, with the actual, camping area off-deed, maybe with plenty of trees or something in the perimeter. Can anybody tell me what areas are seeing a lot of traffic these days on Xanadu?
  19. Greetings fellow Wurmians! So I've got some rough ideas, and I thought I might do some crowdsourcing to see what people think, maybe get some inspiration, that sort of thing. If you have any thoughts, please feel free to weigh in! So the main thing that I've been thinking about is something relatively communal and open. What about a campground? I could find some open, relatively flat land, set up some basic borders for aggro control, then set up individual campsites where people can come, pitch a tent, secure their locked containers, that sort of thing. Close to the water for boat access and fishing, maybe close to a load of abandoned settlements for Archaeology; communal workspace with ovens/forges/etc? Would it make sense to do this on an island, to be more generally accessible? Possibly bridged to the mainland and connected to a highway even? Are there any nomads out there who would use such a place if it existed? I did a cursory search of the forums to see if there was anything like this at the moment, and I didn't really see anything, but if someone has done this elsewhere, I would love to hear about it! I look forward to any feedback that you guys might have! - Perihelion
  20. Rare bugged lump from Archaeology, 9QL Thinks it is electrum. Will mail COD to winner of auction. Good luck!
  21. Yes in fact there was, thank you Thorin for your assistance!

Each of our 4 sq. tile rooms will be furnished with single or double canopy beds, a large chest, wardrobe, alchemist's cupboard, as well as miscellaneous furniture, decorations, etc. We will be updating this post from time to time with photos, news, and anything else that might be of interest to the community. We welcome any feedback, ideas, suggestions, or other comments, so please don't hold back! Current Status The site has been cleared. Initial design plans for the site have been completed and approved, and we are preparing the materials and resources that will be needed for a project of this size. We expect to have the first floor Planned soon. There is ample parking space available as well as space for mooring ships & boats. Below are some teaser pictures of the design. Please note that plans may change along the way, this is still early stage development. View from the highway running through the Isle of Wonders View of the front entrance, from the road branching off of the main highway. The Biergarten and side of the main building. Taken from the perspective of the driveway/parking lot and right next to the southern shore of the island. This is the current (basic) plan for each of the 3 floors with rooms. Green walls are doors. The smaller 1x3 room at the bottom of the image is currently planned for staff use, leaving 8 rooms per floor that will be available to rent, 4 singles and 4 doubles. Interior design pictures coming soon. We are very much looking forward to serving the fine Wurmians of Xanadu and beyond!
  23. That is very near one of the areas we are currently scouting, actually. The next time we head out that way I'll try to drop by your deed and take a look around the area. I'm pretty set on being in a fairly open area and directly next to a shore. Thanks for the offer, and perhaps we'll do some business in the future! - Perihelion
