IRE Asks: Is player housing important to you and why?
MMORPG developers don't seem to care about player housing, and perhaps the same rings true for their players. While player housing always seems to serve a niche market, it receives mainstream praise if done right. However, more developers would rather focus on core features then spending time and money on a coding team. They'd rather not waste the resources when players will mostly be out grinding or doing arena PvP.
In Iron Realms games, player housing tends to be an integral part that gives deeper immersion into the player-ran environment. You can describe every room in your house to build your dream castle or hermit swamp dwelling, purchase a large variety of furniture and make every exit a secret. But is it enough to make you care? Is player housing one of those money sinks you won't buy into? Or is it an absolute requirement, the selling point of an MMO? If you're a home owner in any of the IRE games, what features would you like to see added to player housing?
