    some current impressions, focus on a new building I construct to have a view from top.

    I ran out of parts, so not finished yet.
    You can go even higher, but I must buy more planks to try how far.

    For now some break...

    this is a pyramid I quickly have set up to play around with the rectangular platform blocks.

    Those blocks are very large, the base has the length of just 2 blocks.

    A pyramid was my favourite project in Fallout 4, and I wish to do it since months in ESO. Now with the platforms it is actually possible :)

    I found no good location yet, this test was placed on top of my "lion avenue" and so I will deconstruct it again.

    Interesting. It does seem so big that it would have to be the main focus of the entire meadow. I wouldn't mind having a look at it if you are happy to accept my resubmitted friend request (I deleted the first one before you replied as I didn't want to bother you). I spotted you in Imperial City with that character a couple of days ago, near the DC base!

    I don't mind at all. Will be online in 7 hours, then we can group so that you can visit my primary residence. We also can go there together, still need to deconstruct the test pyramid :)

    You are right though, this building dominates everything, too much, this makes it so difficult to find a proper location.
    Especially if you would use 3-4 blocks for the base to have more space inside to set up a hall or rooms. The current test still feels a bit too small for a pyramid.

    I might even finally build it on tropical island instead, as it has a large beach to build on.

    @markulrich1966 took me round his Moon-Sugar Meadow earlier and it was stunning. I didn’t get a full sense of the scale of it from the photos but it was gorgeous and has some really fun things to do. How you managed to do all that with the item cap is beyond me. 10/10

    The "trick" is to start with some large items.
    Gazebos, Towers, bridges, stairs, Pillars.

    They change the "overall feel" of the area.

    Your own home uses smaller items, so the original character of the compound is dominating (what has its own charme).

    I followed a similar strategy at the lunar champion hall outside, with the stairways leading up. They now dominate the scene, it looks very different.

    Once this basic setup is established, I focus on 3 locations for more details.

    The crystals on the water, the lion "avenue", the lamps in the gazebos + vines.
    So you have the required detail grade that adds some "personal" touch, like the choice of lamps (Murkmire).
    It lacks detail thogh compared to your home, with all the detailed places to sit and different merchant stands.

    If then still slots are free, I look for places where something seems to miss, add a Pergola or such for the final finish.

    I will upload a video this weekend, glad you enjoyed the tour, thanks for the nice review :)

    I finally got around to previewing this property.

    Is anyone else troubled by the ugly muddy water? None of the water anywhere else in Elsweyr looks like that!

    You guys have made some awesome houses there, but that water is a complete no starter for me. I couldn’t spend gold or crowns on this one.
