Hi,
This is a castle I built at ColdHarbour using mostly Deadlands architecture style on the PTS

I am happy to share the EHT save files for most of my builds.

    Cool build, very atmospheric!

    So what it’s like building on PTS? I guess you have unlimited resources, which would be awesome, but everything gets erased after a while? Isn’t that sort of heartbreaking?

    Just curious.

    This is just a guess because I don’t even know if EHT works on the PTS, but if it does, could one create something on the PTS, save it in EHT, then someday on live collect all of the furnishings and then rebuild it all with the press of one button? And I’ve also wondered if people on live could share their creations with other people that way too 🙂

    Yes, you can do exactly that you described. Many people do that by the way, specially to record videos for YT. I just recently use it it to test/practice some structure that I wasn’t very sure on how many items I would need for part of a commission I am working on.

    When is about “share their creations” from live. That is also possible but it wouldn’t be fun if everyone starts to have the same builds on the same houses.

    In meantime I created some basic structures and did the export to share on ESOHN discord. I wanted to post here but I’m not sure how to let exports available here.

    I can happily direct u to it if you join ESO Housing Network discord community and look for me there :)

    @katanagirl1 personally I love building on the PTS. It allows me create with freedom. I like building houses but in ESO that comes with a huge grind because everything in housing is locked behind grind.
    As for everything getting erased, I think one person described what I do once as like building sandcastles on the beach! :smile: and thats very true but for me i enjoy the building rather than the having.
    As @Elvenheart suggested, I do save all my builds using EHT and I also record them on Youtube. Thats enough posterity for me! :smile: . If I like a build a lot, I do create them on Live server but it takes so long to grind and scrounge up all the materials, I really dont do it often.
    I also offer my builds to people who play on PC. My builds are all on the Youtube link in my signature. People often take the builds which are saved with EHT and upload them. This way I get to visit many of my builds whenever I want to!
    For example, if somebody wanted this build, I would just give them a list of all the items. They get them, place them in Coldharbour. Then I just go into their house, upload the save and you watch the build spring to life in seconds.
    All my housing builds are available on YouTube

    @Ayalockheart about sharing files here - For some reason the forum code changes or missinterprets the save data from EHT when you try to share it here. The simplest way Ive found around it is to upload a .txt file to an open dropbox and share the link here.

    Thanks for the reply @Zypheran . I think I would like building on PTS too but I don’t currently have access. I do enjoy visiting the houses that I have decorated too, though. It would be nice to have the ability to at least try out stuff before decorating live houses.

    I started a custom build in the Doomchar Plateau but having to stop and grind for mundane runes has slowed my progress and dampened my enthusiasm after only a small one story building. I had hoped to add a tower but not sure when I’ll get back to it.

    Thanks again for sharing your builds.
    :)
