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

    A furniture bag! (or more appropriately named, "warehouse") Its time consuming and cumbersome to use valuable homes we want to decorate for just furniture storage, never mind the grind to just find an item in any of them. Luckily we have an addon made by @R_K/@Cardinal05, DecoTrack to find our items in our many homes. Still have to travel to several homes to retrieve the items and also the waste of having several storage homes I would rather decorate. We buy homes with hundreds of bound items, even when unfurnished. We cannot decon them or sell them, never mind the collection of lux items and other collections, *cough* (hoardings) for future builds. This would be first and foremost on my wish list for Housing. Second would be increased item cap for Notable homes. Some of us have many 100$+ homes irl money and pay a sub. I've 26 homes myself and know many with many more. I do throw my money already. Just want it more functional. Please include this in sub as you do craft bag. I've thousands of furniture items and wish to use them. DECORATING HAS BECOME AS DAUNTING AS CRAFTING WITHOUT A CRAFT BAG. It keeps me from making purchases of further homes and furniture packs as I'm tired of spending my money to buy homes to store the furniture I purchased, just to be daunted by not being able to enjoy them and decorate them as intended.

    A simple, non-descript pre-built wooden stable-esque roofing structure.

    I'd buy it in a heartbeat, with crowns.

    I use Orcish Canopy, Shingled and Orcish Tent, Shingled for this.(ask a guildie to craft, or if in zone mention you will supply mats and a tip) If you want a larger, full-size stable, it is sadly lacking.

    The problem for me is that I can't stand the look of those Orc shelters.

    Certainly, they don't match the Cyrodilic Jungle House at all.

    I'm quite the purist in my designs. I'll basically only use matching racial + generic items.

    More functional furniture like storage, target dummies that give more information than just DPS, buff bots and ultimate generators for dummy tests.

    Also more daedric stuff, more blood fountains.

    Floors that are coded such that AoEs don't go through them.

    I would love a small building plot, like Coldharbour or Hunter's Glade, but a fraction of the size! I would also like more musical instruments, more books (open ones in various sizes) And also some more water, like bigger waterfalls and streams, but also just a pool of water to make ponds etc. In my houses.

    Obviously an item limit increase, which is greatly needed in many of the larger homes! And pots filled with earth, or just a variety of sizes of earth patches, to be able to place into containers or areas. Oooh! And those little mushrooms you see at alchemists all over Tamriel! Then we need weapons and clothing items to place in our homes, which I think are things that should have been in housing from the start, it is really odd that those things are not! And more building materials! Walls in various styles as well as lengths! And more fountains! There are just too many things to list them all, I could write an essay! :sweat_smile:
    Templar is truly a fearless knight, and secure on every side,
    for his soul is protected by the armor of faith,
    just as his body is protected by the armor of steel.
    He is thus doubly armed and need fear neither demons nor men.

    Wayshrines.
    But sadly, when I've been working on my fast travel addon, I've realized that it seems to be quite difficult and tricky to implement them as a furniture. From what I've seen in game's API, the game's fast travel system is kind of "hardcoded" - programmers' term which mean that some part of a programm is made as a construction of bricks and concrete and it can't be easily changed nor modified, it's not a flexible material. Wayshrines in the game are a predefined array of objects, and each of them has it's predefined place and individual number. Sure, they can do that, but looking at how long it took them to make text search in guild store, I don't expect wayshrines as a furniture in near future. Though they could just add a wayshrine functionality to a house entrance, it's a way easier, but it's not a monetizable thing.

    as much as I would love writ boards and shipment crates as furnishings, I can see why they won't do them. capital cities need to stay populated, the game will feel empty if no one left their homes :p but I would love it if getting the explorer achievement gave you a wayshrine furnishing you could use inside the house. This has been asked for a lot, but MANNEQUINS!! let us have mannequins we can swap gear with. No need to swap weapons cuz dual wield vs 1 handers would be weird with inventory spacing. Either let us swap with them, or let them be basically like the player inventory, and we equip them piece by piece with gear and can insta swap in the equip menu. Interactable door furnishings like in fang lair!

    Lights/candles/chandeliers that are red or other colors. Candles and chandeliers that actually light up areas like they do in the game. Aside from a select few items, the light sources we have access to are nothing like their counterparts in the actual game world which often give off a red or orange glow instead of the yellow like candles do now. There's just no way to light up areas of your house like areas in the game are lit because of how limited light sources are in their (one) color.

    The dark brotherhood candles should glow red like they do in the sanctuary, but in your house they're yellow like every other candle. What's the point? All houses end up lit almost exactly the same because there's no real variety here.

    Also, SKYBOXES. Rift had skyboxes. We could pick from all kinds of different types of skies to pick from--dark, light, overcast, green, pitch black, stars in the sky, galaxies in the sky, anything you could think of we pretty much had access to. ESO housing desperately needs skyboxes. I don't own any houses which are mostly outdoor areas because I prefer it to be night, but the night cycle in ESO is sooooooo short (like 4 hours out of the day?) that it's almost never dark.

    My number 1 furnishing request would be the armour/weapon racks, even just loose weapons I can put on a blacksmith table would be a step in the right direction.

    Having read this thread, I'd also agree with the skybox idea, and I'd like a wider variety in music boxes as well, I play a dunmer character, and want dunmer music in my home.

    More super-important stuff that should really be in the game would include the bank merchant furnishing becoming an actual bank merchant where you can access the guild bank from him etc, and of course, higher furnishing item limits.

    Finally, thanks for implementing storage in housing! I was waiting ages and it's amazing! :)

    Mementos as furnishings would be cool. I really wish some stolen treasures were furnishing items. It would be a weird collection but I would fill an entire home with stolen treasures.

    Option to dye furnishings! I'm soooo tired of how limited things are because X style furniture only comes in ONE color. I would gladly pay real money to BUY A SCROLL that unlocks this ability. Do NOT nickel and dime me to death per furnishing piece. I'd cheerfully pony up 5 or 6k crowns for this "privilege."

    I would NOT buy "extra" furnishing slots! THAT is a QoL upgrade they needed to give us to START with. Over 2 years later I am not about to pay for it.

    I WOULD pay for a "gardener's scroll" that unlocks the plans for a region's fauna. Trees, flowers, shrubs, you name it. I'd even be cool with these scrolls being per region and the DLC and Chapter scrolls being more expensive than the base game scrolls. Just let me MAKE the darned plants and trees I need already!

    2) Cellars. A placeable door you could place anywhere on the ground that would load you into a small extra room (Think like the homes with exterior/interior quick loads). Great for adding additional rooms, and the placeable aspect of it allows you to choose where.

    Could technically also do this with just regular doors that place onto walls instead of Floors for an addable small room as well. Naturally the rooms would come available in all the currently available architectural styles. (Ex. Hlaalu Cellar, Nord Cellar, Alinor Cellar etc.) Could be limited to one per House to avoid any load/lag issues.
    .

    THIS I would pay for. The ability to ADD ROOMS! HOWEVER, each of those rooms would HAVE to have its own furniture item slot count! And it would have to be DECENT! 200 items at least. Yes, THAT I would pay for.

    Flavour NPCs. Bards, dancers, stablehands, maids, barkeeps and chefs. I'd also like to see our assistants wander around the house a bit. Or at the very least roam around whatever room they're placed in and interact with furniture.

    This! Also with alts, as has been suggested many times. That would be neat! Specially if the could be set to play an emote or do something more than standing idle (though if they did only that I´d still want to place one or two in my home).

    ^^this. I'm up to 4 storage homes now. Porting around various homes to get decorating supplies really takes the joy out of decorating. And as Swankery said, we would like to be using those homes properly, not as storage warehouses.
