Regalia V6 is starting pre-production soon, but before we can begin, we need to have a rough understanding of how we want to lay out the city. The Yanar District and the Hangman road were great concepts on paper, but the execution often left much to be desired, because of how chaotically these districts were organized, and how little common space there often was that didn't rely on Staff to do decoration for. The Community Street Polling is kind of like a test of interest to continue and ramp up the idea of Community Streets or Neighborhoods to encourage more rp between houses instead of in houses, or away from the houses. The idea is that a bunch of players all rent properties around a communal garden or street, and that they manage a list of users that have edit rights to this communal garden or street, thus allowing the players to edit it to whatever they want at any time without Staff intervention. Want to host a street BBQ? you can set it up. Want to create a community garden? Change it any time you like. In theory this sounds great, but again, on paper, it is very hard to manage. Hangmanroad and the Yanar district only succeeded because of the communities behind it. There was once one for the Allar District too, but that one died out when the population died, and it could be said that Hangmanroad is also on its last legs in V6 right now. Before we start planning out the road map for V6, it is as such important to understand what the relation between community streets and single-rental properties should be. The current design layout is something like this and because it's off the main streets, we have a lot of room for unique thematic designs or housing styles, to give a really strong theme vibe to the area. The eventual community area would look some something like this though obviously with the understanding that all the buildings here are placeholder templates. So. In order to know how many of these we need, and in what styles, this thread exists less as a registration, and more as an interest polling thread. While a registration thread may well easily flow from this thread, it should not be considered official for now. How to Poll for a Neighborhood/Community Street You need: 9 Player Characters , no less, but up to a maximum of 11. It is in theory possible to create underground housing as well, but only if a community is so large that it is absolutely necessary, in which case, sign up 22 players. It is also possible to create 2 neighborhood districts right next to each other, so 2x9 or 2x11 housing. If that is the case, mention it on the final point of the Sign up Template. Characters that are considered "Mains". Housing like this isn't for side characters or characters that aren't really active. Side characters that you play less than 30% of the time should co-habit other characters or make use of one of the apartment complexes. Characters cannot be Clandestine owners/co-owners or Noble Estate owners/Noble Estate family members. This is because these people already have custom private areas. If a noble has a really active side character, a case can be made for that character to be recorded, but primarily, nobles and clandestine progression system people should make use of clandestine bases / Noble estates. Co-habitation is strongly encouraged. When V6 comes out, there will not be enough houses for everyone, and housing combining by breaking down walls between them is no longer possible. Consider putting siblings/lovers in the same house together. To Sign up: Reply to this thread: List at least 9 Character names + their associated Usernames up to a max of 11. While you have 9 to 11 slots for housing, you can assign 2 or 3 names for a single slot, in the case of co-habitation. List the District where this neighborhood should be from the list below: Hightown: The classy/rich district. The Commons: The harbor/commerce/common district. Crooktown: Previously Crookback Bay & Old Town combined State some sort of theme, like Ithanian or Alt-Regalian or Varran or Sihai. State some sort of special decor if not, ignore this point. All decors: Greenhouse: Glass roof over the communal Garden Lake: Communal garden is instead a lake or cistern. Sewerline: Communal garden becomes a Sewer Entrance. Indoor: Communal garden becomes an indoor bazaar instead. Cityedge: If you want to live on the city's edge instead in perhaps tents outside the city. Anything else you think is necessary to add. Signing up will not guarantee a neighborhood or common street is made, this is purely for polling interest. That being said, we are inclined to work with people who sign up early if their concept is accepted for a neighborhood, and if it is accepted, then the usernames recorded have a guaranteed house reserved for them +1 month of rent paid for.
