Here’s what’s new in the latest release:
New to 6.1 is Player Housing, which will be the second way (next to food) to earn skill points. The better furnished your house is with the more variety of rooms, the faster you’ll gain skill points.
Adding furniture of matching categories to a room (ie bathroom, living room, bedroom) will provide a room bonus to the property owner, and having multiple rooms of various types will apply a ‘balanced house multiplier’.
The goal of this feature is to put more individual incentive into the game, increasing the quality and size of your house in order to increase your skills. Important to the group, yes, but it can easily get out of hand, and finding a balance of resources put towards individual needs vs. the needs of the group will play a big role.
With 6.1 we’ve added the basic system to try out, still in the works are a whole slew of housing objects to add, which will arrive in 6.2. Let us know your feedback.
