Well.... I guess I'ma have to buy this, crowns or not.... and how convenient that crowns are on sale right now. I'll just have to buy the 21k pack and then I'll have enough to buy Moon Sugar Meadow too....

My "current crisis" presents to me!

    Well, being it's a combo of Redguard/RaGada/Yokudan, less will be more in a lot of ways. I love the way it's all over the place with rooms and stairs and so on....
    I like the brightness of the houses and how it's not moldy or dark or falling apart.

    BUT...

    it is *again* one of those huge houses that should really be split up into three instances (the two houses and the outside) with *each* having a 700 item slot limit, rather than all *three* sharing the 700 slots.
    Basically, that means that you either close off one of the houses and/or the outside - thus having more or less spent 13.000 crowns for something that you can only use 1/3 of - and decorate *one* of the houses with the 700 slots, or you end up with half empty houses and outsides...

    Unfortunately, despite how often we, als Housing fans, bring up the subject in the forums, we're ignored... *sigh*

    Well, there's a sticky post at the very top of the Index page actually addressing that, and the reasoning all along. No, it doesn't say we'll ever get more slots, but at least @ZOS_CullenLee did respond back in February.

    I don't know as I don't use steam. I buy from the regular online store.

    I really would've liked to get the house.
    But 13k crowns is simply crazy sh**.

    Well.... I wanted four of them (one on each account, on both mega-servers - but I didn't want to spend THAT much right now). So I got the Oasis for my NA second account (because this account has the Villa) and the Meadow for my EU second account (as EU is ditto the Villa for this account).

    Maybe next year if it comes back I'll feel as if I can get the other three.

    It reminds me of a player built house, someone used the back of Grand Psijic Villa to make the same thing. Edit: found the video and it’s pretty amazing.



    It’s an amazing house and I definitely want it!

    My negative feelings in other areas of the game is stopping me from buying it though.

    Well, I think a Thieves Oasis isn't the same as a Thieves Den, y'know? An Oasis presupposes a vacation retreat or some such. I didn't look around really thoroughly after deciding I was buying it as I had other stuff going on today. I'll check it out better tomorrow!

    I think its permanent. Like I said the house has potential, but I think it needed a storage area and some way to turn on and off the sandstorms at will.

    It's not. It's just like Twin Arches, which gets sandstorms every now and then. Though, they might be more common in the Oasis, not sure. Was clear weather when I looked at it.

    Neat then I might be able to make an outdoor thieves nook to show hidden treasure in then. Hmmm interest piqued about this place now. However the blackreach home would be great. What to do wha to do.

    Yes, I'm aware of that post and added my own comments on it, too. However, I feel that it's what I consider a 'throw-away' post. Basically, throw something out onto the forum, make people work on it (his request for continued feedback) and then bugger off for better climes...
    Since the initial post, there has been no feedback from @ZOS_CullenLee since then. Not to our suggestions, not to our various questions, nothing, even though he's been checking into the forum regularily.

    So at the moment I see ZOS ignoring its customer base and continuing blindly on a path that isn't concurrent with what people want.

    And just last night I had this sudden moment of thought: why is the company that puts out Fallout, Quake, Doom and other highly recognized games so totally incompetent where server performance is concerned? It boggles the mind...

    What if they allow us to set the max player cap? For every person we choose not to allow it gives more slots?

    Same, I was considering getting Forgemaster Falls, since both of these new houses are awesome in my opinion, but I knew that Thieves Oasis would cost way more Crowns, and I'd also need to buy some Crown-exclusive structural items for the build I want in it. So sadly, my Orc clan will stay at their Forsaken Stronghold, but I happily bought Thieve's Oasis yesterday. :smile:

    Indeed, it's not permanent. It's just a weather feature that comes and goes. Though I know some people might be unlucky enough to see it every time they check - it often feels like it's raining every time I want to take a clear screenshot in some zones lol.

    Now, if we had a day/night and weather toggle for our homes that would be great! :blush:

    So it has WAY too many doors, and apropos of you wanting a "hidden treasure room" I did a little rework on mine. I made an Elseweyr Wall, Wide, set it over the second door of the east dwelling to close in the archway, and left the door on the inside to make a "treasure room".

    Outside where the archway used to be:

    Inside the treasure room:

    Now, that treasure pile is way too big for that space, I put it there just for "looks" for the screenie.

    There is a little cave area up where the left side waterfall is. It would just need a couple more large rocks to sort of seal it off.
    Far too many characters to list any more.

    I found a few potential thieves nooks outdoors as well. Small ones. On the other hand also considered lining the oasis bottom with gold too lol.

    I am most likely going to get this one. The outdoor space is large, but I don’t need to put much out there, I will just run around and enjoy the beautiful scenery without other players around and pets in my face.

    The only thing that I don’t like about the interior, other than the few tiny windows it has (like all other houses they put out) are the chandeliers. They don’t look right in a house with low ceilings.

    The only thing I’m concerned about right now is investing more money into the game in the state it’s in right now. I’ll need to buy a small amount of crowns to get this house if I do. I don’t know how many other people in this section of the forum are doing other content like PvE or PvP, PvE has it’s share of bugs but Cyrodiil has been in bad shape for a long time and is getting worse again. I am starting to lose hope that it will be fixed. Funny, I’ve completely gotten used to melee battles at 1-5 fps with the obvious targeting difficulties in that setting, and mentally putting a 3 second lag on my rotation, but skills taking 5-6 button presses to fire and ultimates that won’t fire are really not acceptable in PvP.

    I get the impression that most people here are completely focused on housing and fairly isolated from such concerns.

    Thanks to @max_only for posting the video above, that was a spectacular housing creation. I’d love to be able to do something like that but it’s way easier to just buy this house instead.

    I feel this place and lore are the only places I can talk about the game without 60% of the posts being about the current balancing and people sharing their (usually wrong) hot tank in an off topic forum or bugs in an off topic forum. Though I am more forgiving of the bug posts as long as they stick to their own topic in general. Its when you start pestering and ruining all the other discussions that *** me off. The other players can't help you and getting mad at them isn't going to win you any favor with them.

    I play solo for lore, making characters and their backstories, and for housing. Occasionally dabbling into dungeons. [snip] PvE and end game content I do care about though as its the big 96% of what the player base likes to do so if it ever starts going downhill then I'll be more critical. As it is now I'm mostly happy some minor things like having house interiors with their own separate amount of furnishings would be great but totally optional.

    You can get the dock pieces. In Rawlkha. I have them in my Daggerfall Overlook docks.

    But you can also use any wooden platform basically, Elsweyr had 2 types of wooden platforms and a wooden wall you can flip if you don't like the look of the dock furnishing. Then just add a few posts and you're done. :smile:

    Hmm, I didn’t think giving my reasons for hesitating to buy this house would cause someone to go off.

    Of course I can’t read what was removed by the mods but if you don’t do anything other than housing and some light PvE maybe you don’t understand how this affects my decision. It is hard to support this game with extra money on top of my ESO subscription when other areas of the game are suffering in the extreme.

    The place is far too massive for the current furnishing limit. 700 items for that place is a joke and every time I hear people talk about it they are blocking off substantial sections of the place just to cut down the space they need to furnish.

    I would never even consider spending that many crowns where I wouldn't be using at least half of it.

    Yeah, I was excited about this house when I saw it on test. Bought it for one crown, started to decorate it and..... this. So I'm saving my crowns for something I don't have to struggle to decorate.

    It's also quite immersion breaking to see the sand blowing violently, but my trees standing perfectly still in the wind.

    @ZOS_CullenLee you could generate a lot of goodwill (and more crown sales for your investors) if you gave us a simple /sandon /sandoff toggle.
