    guys can I make a suggestion. I think it would make more sense to swap the poor housing with the normal housing near the docks, that way, it is furthest from the rich, still close to the industrial area, where most of the poor would work. It is also close to the docks where many of the poor would be fisherman, sailors or simple dock workers. Also when ever Linhir gets raided by the corsairs, the poor would be the ones to get hit first, meaning for the corsairs to take anything of value they would have to go deeper into Linhir, making it more dangerous for them, and safer for those who can afford better accommodation.

    just my thoughts what do you think?

    I guess I can write our motivation here if anyone else wonders.
    We reasoned as that the poorer areas of cities are often in the outskirts. Swapping places on the two different districts would make the poor area to central. We also wanted it to be as close to the industrial area as possible, since we think that most of the poor residents work there. We will add fishing huts in the industrial area as well.
    We did consider putting the poor area where you suggest it but after hours of discussions ( ;) ) we decided to put it where it is.
    I appreciate tips and cheerfully take them into consideration, so just keep the feedback coming Lucky! :)

    I like your reasoning @oth0116 and friends, but I would agree with lucky that more poor people would work as fishermen, sailors, or stevedores/longshoremen/whatever-you-want-to-call-them. I'm guessing you want to avoid having poorer houses in that area though, so I would suggest having apartment buildings for the lower/lower-middle class workers. Yes, they exist at that time.

    Yeah, I would think that quite a few middle class people would also work in the industrial area as well, it wouldn't be 99% poor people in staff.
    (About the insulas, was Gondor sort of based on the Roman Empire? The architecture DOES seem similar....)

    The Linhir Market Build!


    Now that the boats are done, we're quickly moving onto the next area which is the market area. For this we need tons of beautiful stalls and carts filled with munchies.

    Our idea for this area is to make it as colorful and happy as possible.
    More than one plot per human is allowed, more than one set-up per plot is welcome tho

    Linhir Normal Housing Freebuild
    (Adventures+)

    -closed-

    Now, as we planned everything out, its time to start with houses.
    To keep it simple, you just have to /warp LinhirHouse.
    You will find a House Guide and Plots there.

    The Normal House Concept:

    IMPORTANT:
    • just 1 Plot per Person until one get accepted.
    • Don't build outside your Plot.
    • There might be no open Plots with prepared stuff when you arrive, just ask a Project Staff to copy one over for you.

    think it would be cool to have some large shipyard. A bit like the beginning of les miserables. This is probable totally irrelevant though
