player-constructed housing

sunandshadowsunandshadow Pittsburgh, PAPosts: 1,060Member Uncommon
Is there a list somewhere of all MMOs with player-constructable housing?  I tried the forum search but it doesn't seem to actually work.  *headscratch*
I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story.  So PM me if you are starting one.

    you wont fine much success here, there are a ton of people that will flame you just for bring it up. Most of those MMOs are not around because of bad programming or driven away from the carebears or even a combo.

    Seriously, no one even has a link to an existing list of MMOs which include player-constructed housing as a feature?  I know there are at least half a dozen...

    I know you can build your home tile by tile in UO, and I think Vanguard Saga of Hero's you can build your home though I'm not 100% sure.

    You can build it plank by plank or decorate a premade in Rift with free access and a tutorial as early as level 7.

    Runes of Magic, of course you'll need the cash shop. And by the looks of it, you got FF14, and I'm pretty sure Archage will have the feature of building your own house but where anyone can get in and destroy it. So yeah, that's pretty much all the help I got for you, I'm not much in to housing anyway. :)

    The OP said player-constructed. So why do some of you keep posting games that has a fixed house and a fixed house only?

    Lotro? Get the hell out of here; that just have to be the worst, dullest and most fixed player-housing ever made.

     

    Xsyon is another sandboxy game where you can construct a house or similar from  scratch. Free-to-try game so expect to pay if you intend to play it with all the features.

    Rift has a strong player-housing but it's instanced.

     

    I wish I could build a house in a village of similar player-made houses...:(

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

    Thank you all for the responses ^_^  I'm going to investigate Rift first, then maybe WildStar (I was just trying out Xsyon, and while it's quite interesting you more or less have to be a tribe leader to build your own stuff, and you have to subscribe to get a totem to start a tribe).

    This is the trailer Trion posted for RIFT's housing (Dimensions). Everything you see in the video is placed plank by plank.

    Worth mentioning though is that Dimensions are 100% instanced, and you will need the larger one before you can make something as crazy as what you can find other players do. Also worth nothing is that you can visit and rate other players' dimensions, and they are some pretty great ones out there.

    I think the reason is because you need a game behind that one simple mechanic and other than a few games you would hardly need a list.Most games other than say Minecraft will use pre-rendered models to build the house instead of being able to build it piece by piece and actually see each phase of the construction.

    I will assume that Landmark will be the first to do this with some quality.However this again would not warrant a list as it will be the first and only quality game to do it with decent graphics.I doubt FFXIV will have actual construction but instead again pre-rendered models,so Landmark will remain the only quality graphic game doing it.

    Istaria, formerly know as Horizons, I believe has a really intricate player crafted housing system. It came out before WoW so it's a bit dated.

    Pre-rendered models of wall segments and pillars, etc. would be fine, like the way house building works in Sims 2 and 3.  Pre-rendered whole buildings suck though.
