Legends of Aria: Feature Highlight - Housing
The Legends of Aria team is hard at work on this quiet Monday, this time coming at the community with a brand new feature video. In this latest edition of the Feature Highlight series, viewers get a look at the housing system as it will be present in the game.
Our player housing system builds upon the non-instanced housing designs of previous MMOs by separating the house from the land. This opens up the door to a wealth of possibilities. A large lot could support several smaller houses allowing land owners to “rent” out their land to other players. It also allows for “non-house” structures like merchant stalls for a player market, or a large custom built PvP arena.
One thing about Legends of Aria that makes it different from modern MMOs is that every single item you find in the world has a physical appearance. This seems like it should be a given but in most MMOs these items only exist as sprites (flat 2d textures) in your inventory. One big advantage of this is that you can use any item you find in the world as a house decoration.
