Take my money (2019) : What housing items/upgrades would you throw money at?

* Small and medium sized homes - 100-500 slots. I can't afford the Aldmeri Grotto - but I would have plunked money down in a heartbeat for just the ship.

* Wayshrines in homes. 4k crowns seems about right (Same as Mundus stones). Most of the large homes are not near any services (crafting, banking etc), would be nice to go home every night and not have to pay to go do writs in the morning.

* Crafting boards in homes. I have a feeling this isn't going to happen, but I would throw money at it!

* Better selection of crown furniture. Concept: remove anything blue or green and craftable/gold purchasable from the Purchase tab/Crown Store. Add upgraded items instead. Want a wine rack full of bottles? Buy it. Just want a wine rack and waste slots on filling it? Craft it! More FX would be nice - ethereal glows, overlays for outdoor skyboxes, glowing sigils. Seasons! Apply this style to turn Autmns gate into a winter ski cabin!

* Crafting hall. Lets face it - most large guilds have all the attunable stations, something like 500 slots now? How about a crafting hall where there are built in "slots" for stations. Maybe rooms for each zone? It's a pain for guild hall owners to add new stations to their long alphabetical lineups every time more sets are added. See “dial a set” station discussion below.

* More pets/collectibles. I'd pay for this upgrade, to be able to put *all* my cats and senche in one home.

* Trap furnishings! Those plants are GREAT, too bad I couldn't afford enough crown crates for more than 1 of each. And we can't gift gem items (boo). I don't want an arena home, I want people to fall off an innocent looking ladder in a maze I built, and die horribly.

* Put all pieces of limited time furnishing packages in the Purchase tab. Yes, I know if you find the right people, Customer Service will sell them "out of stock" furnishing packages (to gift to you). Not everyone has access to these individuals. So, please put Dibella, the giant dragon skeleton, Prince Hew's statue, etc, in the purchase tab. Charge 5k for the statue itself, but allow us access more than once a year (if that).

* Allow purchase of crowns only homes any time. This seems like the easiest win-win. You don't have to feature all homes in the Crown store at all times, but allow us to purchase at any time. Not everyone has the luxury of buying $200 worth of crowns at Christmas to hold until June for the home they want to buy. For festivals, such as Dark Brotherhood, offer the home at a discount, say 10%. Some people will wait until the event to purchase, others will pay full price.

* Add more in-zone furnishings (esp. plants!) to crown store. If I listed these it would break the forums. Easy one: *water lillies* or lotus. All over the Lakemire home, buy why can't I have them in Princely Dawnlight or Linchal?

* PLANTERS! with dirt! How could I forget? Vegetables on trellis for gardens would be nice too (tomatoes, berries, maybe squash). Trellis with flowers, not just pergoala.

* <TBA, add later, need to stream now!>

    ntless tagging zos staff, they don’t leave the general discussion section or the news section. (Flat out ignored my poll on weapon furnishings (staff were tagged several times) a while back, months since the last tag later, nothing but silence.)

    Awesome ideas,. I tagged Jessica because she and I were talking on Twitter this morning. :)

    While we're waiting on ZOS to add more materials, Essential Housing Tools addon does have more FX textures to put over floors etc. Sadly, FX are not solid, but if you want to cover up a worn looking floor with nice wood, just throw some FX down. Doesn't take housing slots either!

    Unfortunately I don’t get access to add-ons, I’m on Xbox One...

    I’ll share more ideas when I think of a few more

    Do not buy anymore housing stuff with crowns, help us send a message to ZoS who extort us but give us nothing but silence communication-wise.

    We are the housing community, we will not be silenced until we get communication!

    I'd like to see the "Seasonal" homes become permanently available. If one of the houses I want was available when I get my crowns from my sub, I'd be more likely to spend extra money on more crowns to buy it.

    Regarding the crafting hall:

    if you could have multiple attunements for a crafting station, let's say 10 or 20, you could gain so much space for other things. Inside the crafting station you could select the set same like you select the style.

    Something that I really want is a wayshrine, but before anything else, more slots.

    I wish for upgradable houses (like heartfire in Skyrim), such unlocking a cellar or a tower. But an upgrade in housing slots would be awesome!

    I didn’t want to mention my “dial a set station” idea. Large, lets say 4k vouchers, stations. Any crafting statiobs that character has found in the world are available via a menu. Encourages new players to go exploring, and if you want sets from content you don’t own, pay for crafting, which gives crafters stuff to do. Probably won’t happen though.

    Pre-built Bridges and walkways - large homes lately often have large areas of water and no way to bridge them without using planks which sometimes look out of place, how bout some proper walkways and bridges?

    Murkmire walkways/ramps are nice, but we could really use more building materials like that. Nice Dunmer bridges for gardens, stone platforms that aren't green or white marble. PLANTERS... OMG PLANTERS WITH DIRT
    And trellises with flowers, not just pergolas.

    Well, there's already Bouldertree refuge and the Gornir Estate. If you mean a wood and stone home... Wood Elves don't build homes so that's probaby not going to happen.

    About the only thing I can think of I'd pay for having in a home is... my alt chars placed as NPCs so I can trade with them without loading screens, and a Wayshrine out (or an exit that leaves me in the spot I was when I ported in.)

    I would add my vote for a bosmer Manor. The Grove at the end of CoA I, or beginning of CoA II rather as it's regrown and not burned, would be awesome.

    3 trees with ramps and bridges connecting them, some interior rooms like in Silvenar, and then that lovely bosmer temple structure in the center. Waterfalls, lots of trees, plenty of water and streams, and generally flat.

    I would pay much money for this.

    There is yet hope for bosmer chapters/dlc however. While Valenwood is explored, There is the small matter of the location of the walking city, Falinesti. That could be a big deal for ESO lore.

    But I would definitely prefer a massive bosmer Manor before they tackle Falinesti ^^

    The one thing I would pay crowns for is an NPC writ courier or a writ board/turn-in. I want to have a reason to craft in the homes where I created nice crafting areas.

    I would probably also pay for a wayshrine for one or two of my homes where said crafting areas are (the ones that aren't close to a wayshrine, like Amaya or Tel Galen). But only if we had access to crafting writs from our homes.

    I would not pay for more housing slots. I believe that if they were ever able to increase them, that it should be a free update. If they were in the crown store, I'd just pass them by. No reason to spend MORE money for a house I've already spent money on (the only homes I need more slots for are the large/notable homes that I purchased with crowns).

    Some of the other ideas that have been mentioned I would like to see added to the game as craftable or purchasable with gold. Like musical instruments. I don't generally buy furnishings with Crowns, though I did purchase a few of the furnishing packs (Vivec, Dibella, Sotha Sil).

    TL;DR portion in italics with elaboration afterward if desired. Note that I have absolutely no idea if a lot of these are even implementable...

    Most Important Thing Ever...

    Toss-up between...

    ....slot upgrade with a max of something around 1000 from current limit of 700 for large homes. 10 slots for 1000 crowns. Depending on my mood, I might pay as much as 2500 crowns. Even just slots that are designated something like "basement" where the furniture pieces aren't actually placed in the home but are just in a storage space in the house for use later. I would pay 1000-1500 crowns for ten slots of that nature. Later, they could be upgraded to "placeable" slots and you all could get another 1000 crowns from me easy...

    ...and...

    ...Ability to deconstruct furniture. Could add a passive to level 50 woodworking called "Demolition" or tie it to an achievement.

    All The Other Things + Suggestions

    -a way to track where your furniture is without having to go to a house, open a storage container, or visit the bank - I have about 2500 pieces of furniture at this point and am routinely surprised by the pieces that I forgot I have. A list of, say, item names and a location (bank versus storage crate verses house) would be totally sufficient

    The short, raised railing-like structures in homes like Earthtear Cavern that prevent a realistic display of rugs and other items

    Furniture "upgrades." Furniture materials could be combined with resins from the associated station the piece of crafted on. So if you spend, say, 100 bast and 4 mastics, you could upgrade a blue chair to a purple chair.

    Placeable non-furniture items. Items either found or crafted could be upgraded to be used as furniture. Ways to balance this so people don't just have another 700 slots of storage for inventory could include making items that are upgraded to furniture status no longer usable in the world, limiting them to ornate items, or changing status to account-bound instead of BoP.

    -fix the Phantom Decorator glitch

    -Lilly pads from Murkmire. Everybody who likes Murkmire wants those freakin' Lilly pads.

    -[Be able to take groups of furniture ("parents and children") and turn them into one large piece of furniture, if it will increase FPS in high-slot houses. No idea if this is even doable on the back-end.

    -the option to turn off furniture sound effects - I love my Mournful Aegis, whose constant "ooooommmm ahhhhh woooooaahhh" makes my house sound like a monastery, but sometimes I really want to turn it off before I get zen poisoning

    -options to "build" an annex. Just being able to add a wing would be STELLAR, but even more awesome would be the ability to increase functionality (gain additional slots, add additional entryways, etc) by using materials to build a room that unlocks those functional upgrades. Wings of houses already owned could be "deconstructed" with

    -build your own town. The new Xanmeer home is about the same size at Dead Water village (maybe even bigger?). Why not take some of the notable homes it to the logical extreme of basically being mayor of your own village?

    -Renting rooms/houses. Players could rent houses or rooms to other players, in their own houses or in said player-made towns. Rent would be managed manually through the trade interface by buying a rent token for the month, say, to guarantee no one could get kicked out and ripped off.

    -Faster ports to some of the more luxurious homes. For notable homes, they could have a "landing" where you at least don't have to deal with the loading screen from exiting your home after dealing with the first loading screen to port there - you just port to your porch only so it's faster. You'd just port to a very small, enclosed instance, which would effectively be a virtual front stoop. Think New York neighborhoods...

    -Dedicated chat categories for home instances.

    -Option to "fill" or "drain" depressions in the landscape of a home. Any depression in the landscape of a home could have the option to be filled with water, azure plasm, oil (ala CWC) and other liquids, or even sand.

    -Option to dye housing walls. Linchal Grand Manor dyed purple would be a kick-ass tribute to Prince.
