Basically I don't want to hunt around in Discord or the other thread to find this information so I'ma collect it here.  What I want to know is where people have built settlements and what's there -- both for couchsurfing purposes and so that I can put my next major outpost in an area that's largely unclaimed.  It might also be fun to collaborate on building a fortress somewhere.

So far I've built one little house/workshop setup on a little island in the south river (Q21) but I'm starting to think about starting over and building something more ambitious in some other part of the map.  Currently eyeballing W19 and P19 as possible building sites but curious to hear where other people have built stuff.

H11 and W22 are where my two building sites are located. H11 I built for easy volcano back entrance access, and W22 was just a nifty looking area.  Both feature an outdoor Map Room, pretty much every crafting station and plenty of open floor space for crashing securely. Someone else put a wheel between W22 and the Derketo trainer, H11 has no wheel.

I stumbled across Hotel Rattran a while back; I remember wandering all over it with a bound thrall looking for a wheel.   awesome, for real

surely this is better for nearly exact coordinates?

I like the detail on that map but don't like that it lacks labeled axes, meaning that I have to mouse around to find something by its coordinates. 

What I'd really like is a map with different "neighborhoods" or major landmarks marked -- like Xel-Ha and the Black Galleon, stuff that one tends to orient oneself relative to.

J-24 on the map Schild doesn't like, right in the middle on the island. Just a country estate surrounded by palisades, with low level wheels and all crafting stations. If we have any newbies still coming in wouldn't be a bad spot to stop and collect oneself for a minute, except that Segoris' giant brick monstrosity is right across the river and probably has more stuff.

I'm also making a project of linking various major settlements via bridge and torch bearing markers. Since we're all in the same clan I don't think I'm "claim griefing" by doing so, but if I put anything in anybody's way just let me know and I'll destroy it.

Gaming time this week vastly curtailed by the total meltdown of the low latency side of my network, and while the high ping satellite side is okay for building, it truly blows for any sort of combat.

I have my... special base on the east side of K20 (basically, right over where the three rivers meet).  If any newbs are starting, I have plenty of space in one of my three forts you are free to setup shop in.  Mess around and level up a bit as you get the hang of the game, as its still in a fairly low level area.  Central to all the desert attractions, about equal distance in all directions:  East is the Black Hand pirate ship, north is the Savannah biome, west is the unknown city, and south is a whole lot of desert filled with cannibals and other horseshit (biggest attraction is "the summoning place", which is an easy jog, with a fast travel obelisk nearby).  Once you level up a bit and get the hang of things, you'll probably want to make your way to castle black dong in the north west for more rapid development.

I live in the tower in the middle, with every crafting station you could want about half way up.  Also have a map room on top of one of the fortresses for fast travel.  Again, any of the three fortresses have room for setting up.  Just like, please don't steal all my shit from the tower.

Oh snap, a subforum for a Funcom game...2018 is weird.

I have some newbie housing/wheels in southwestern J24 with an outside map. I'll be reducing that down a bit and likely just leaving the map room and guards once my warehouse is setup.

New place - Northern/Central L20 on top of a cliff. No clue what I'm doing with the space, but it's like 20x40 and makes me realize how much I wish we could put dry wood in a grinder to get bark.

I upgraded/placed some wheels down for easy thrall taking and have seen quite a few placed down from others. Here's the wheels I know of:

W22 near the Derketo trainer
X18 near someone's cliffside home right on the beach for pirates
N19 in the southeast corner on the path near the boat for pirates
D20 southwest corner for the neutral city
D12 for Cimmerians, in the water south of town
I14 for Nords, on a hill north of their city
L15 north of Freya's hut on the roof of someone's house
K7 for named Thralls near the volcano dungeon
L8 for the other named Thralls in the volcano

Which reminds me, I keep meaning to put one down for The Den, but whatever.

I'm Mangwende in game. My main digs are right near N'batu and the Giant Crocodile in the desert, 2744.1876.

I'm building a northern hangout downriver from the big guild structures near the bridge.

Playtime going to be light in the coming week as I'm on the road.

I put a wheel on one side of the pirate ship; there's another wheel by my northern digs that you could drag a thrall to from the three towers or New Asgard but it's a bit of a haul, I put it up before getting access to the guild stuff. I have a third wheel by Set City on the northern side.

I decided my next outpost is going to be just a few sectors over from where I am now, sort of halfway to Rattran's and just south of Dagon's Descent, and I'm going to build a highway between that and my current base so I don't need to tie up my bedroll location on suicide-teleportation between the two spots.  Going to build the new structure out of insulated wood since it's in an area with lots of trees and iron.   DRILLING AND MANLINESS

Managed to build my first bridge yesterday and there was some fun frustration figuring out how to get the pieces to snap together, but I think I've mastered the technique now.  The next thing in my path is a big fucking cliff and I'm debating between building stairs up the side or trying to put together an elevator...

i need an adult



i'm legit building an entire city of houses into the side of this mountain, i'll probably do a little decoration in each one

also in the steppes I'm going to build a monster sanctuary and using the POWER OF ADMIN, spawn all the bosses in cages because rad

edit: next to the massive torture wheel is a chest - in that chest is 100 wooden signs. if you'd like to claim a house when those are done, have at it.

I've stayed up the last two nights building a nice torch-marked route (with overpasses and elevators to go over the mountains that I didn't want to go around) between my old base and the one I'm about to start on.  It's giving me the old Minecraft feels and I'm loving it.

Does it make sense to "prototype" foundations in sandstone to figure out what will fit where before I start laying down stonebrick, or do y'all generally just start plopping stuff and see what works?  The area I'm staking out is jungly and hilly so I expect there'll be a few obstacles to work around.

I scout the entire range of where I want to build, and see where the elevation changes are, and then start plopping down. Blowing up shit I JUST put down sucks when you're using black ice, but it's better than having to break down a bunch of shit.

Yep, sandstone blocks and ceiling tiles for spacing too, then bust them back up. It's the only way I know to keep everything lined up.

After building a few stonebrick foundations I understand why y'all said thralls are so important.  It didn't matter at all for sandstone since those are 100% hand-crafted but getting a discount on stuff built at crafting stations would speed this up a lot.  Gonna take a little break from building to go hunting at the Black Galleon.   Oh ho ho ho.

One bummer on that is that the smelter never discounts, just speeds up and burns fuel slower.  Because making steel must always be painful.

That's good to know before I waste too much time on getting a good smelter thrall -- I was really hoping to speed up the process of firing bricks.   Heartbreak

Added a couple of crafting stations to the Black Ship campsite to make field repairs easier -- sucks to be out thrall hunting and need to go home because your truncheon broke and you forgot to pack leather.  Now I can just use pirate skin.   why so serious?  Got my first named thrall too!
