It will be amazing if the character selection screen will be replaced by the Primary Residence. Once loaded the character selection screen will have same options and will look almost like before except the background will be the Primary Residence's entrance position and next to the "Play" button will be a button "Look around (F5)" that will let the character to walk the house, activate objects (lights, house storage containers etc). No addons will be loaded, house editor function (F5) will be replaced by Select Character (F5) so player will be able to select different characters.

    I understood your title otherwise, at first.

    I would have liked to but able to set a different primary residence for each character. My khajiit at serenity falls, my wood elf at bouldertree, and so on

    Basically, we should be able to define MORE than one primary residence, and to visit different houses of one player in the base game.

    I love this idea.

    So you want the house loaded before the character is loaded into the game? Don't think that could happen. If it did, there would be a huge delay just moving from one character to the other in the list. Almost as long as it takes to log in, for sure the amount of time it takes to load into the house. Then, you would have to wait that time again just to load into the game.

    Good idea for sure, but technically unfeasible since our saves are not local.

    What you should ask for is a the ability to load a custom screenshot into the character select screens.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    There's no reason housing data saves couldn't be local.

    Sure, if you've granted decorator permissions to someone else they could move stuff around while you're offline, so there could be occasional mismatches.

    But furnishing locations aren't like character level or achievements or what stuff you own from the crown store. It doesn't need to be exclusively server side.

    @Ajaxandriel If you are on PC, you can install port to friend, or EHT and than you can port to all houses from 1 person that have been opened for visitors.

    Love the idea but also worry about load time. I wouldn't mind the option to just load my character in my primary residence?

    Yes, it opens them up to being hackable. Someone will build an editor to work client side.

    on the character selection screen the actual house doesnt have to look like ours with the decorations in it hust the basic look of the place.

    Very nice idea!
    (I can't stand the hammerfell background for my breton or orc... or the skyrim background for my dark elves)
