the sims house building system on LOTRO!!!!!!
I have a bad feeling that Turbine will using Housing Upgrade as a form of extra incentive to encourage people to buy the next expansion.
That's sorta what they did with crafting..
Nothing like blackmail eh?
*gasp* :eek: I have to kill THAT many for the deed?!?!

This is Middle Earth! There is much more they could add outside of the usual monster/quest/loot grind.

SWG had arguably the best housing system, with EQ2 a very close second.

/signed. I agree - need more hooks or just have it where we can place items where ever - I would love to really be original in decorating.

omg yay, people who care ;3
Suggestion forum wasn't so awesome heh.
Anywho, give us a housing messaging board, so I can leave neighbors messages >.<
It could just be the little map overlayed on a board, and you click on their house or something.
Wake me up when housing and kinships get some attention.....zzzzzz
i played SWG from 2003 to 2005 and one of the reasons i stuck with the game even through the horrible CU was because of housing. i LOVED my house. it would be great to see the same types of options in LOTRO.
i agree that the neighborhood idea is a good one, but when there's really no point to go to the neighborhoods other than dropping things off in a chest or buying discounted items, it really just makes housing seem like the red-headed step-child of the game.
to reiterate what others have said, i'd love to see the following:
1 - the ability for all of my characters to have their own homes.
2 - crafting abilities in our homes (someone mentioned the option to buy a superior oven for our homes and i drooled....i hate running back and forth between my vault and the oven in MD...or even having to run back and forth between the neighborhood vendor and the oven because cooking is a nightmare for inventory).
3 - more flexibility in decorating. please get rid of hooks. i hate them. every house looks exactly the same.
4 - if not crafting in our homes, at least crafting in our neighborhoods. i've had a house since the option was offered and i have never seen any of my neighbors.
5 - someone else suggested merchants....i know this would cause a huge upheaval of the game, but that's another aspect of SWG that i miss....the economy. if we could open our own little shops (maybe a business-only neighborhood? or add shops to the current neighborhoods?) i would -love- that.
please don't neglect this aspect of the game!
I love my house but would very much enjoy more freedom to decorate. Freedom to place things where I liked would be a big help.
Happy homeowner on Landroval and Laurelin!

i think it'd be nice if they opened a new housing area in lothlorien now that it's expanding soon.
 nevermind, after posting this i read the thread regarding it and it makes sense not to.
I haven't played SWG, but am used to another place that allows us to decorate as we see fit. I've spent hundreds of dollars on various things in Second Life. I'd love to see some housing love here, and would even pay a reasonble price for a super "fluff" expansion, with housing as the focus of that expansion. I'm a Lifetime member and would view it as an investment in the game and my future within the game. I want more reasons to return to my home rather then mostly just storage.
Signed as well. I have yet to have any faith that this will happen. It appears they have more interest in the pvmp than the housing.
/signed a thousand times!
The housing system is a great thing overall, and the neighborhoods look fantastic, as do the homes...but zoning into a neighborhood to see an empty zone half full of locked houses really kills one of the coolest features of Lotro.
I'd love to have a reason to hang out at my house, or a friends, or relax at the Kin house other than to pop in to use the Inn League Keg for laughs. Hard to do when half the neighborhood doesn't exist in the game.
And of course, /sign for other upgrade suggestions as well...
Oh, and can we PLEASE get something besides fish and the same like 5 paintings to put on our walls? Swords, shields, spears, halberds, etc...all would be awesome items for wall slots (I have a sword mounted on the wall above my desk in RL, which made me think about it).
"Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory."
I definatly agree with most of the points mentioned in this thread. Removal of the interior hooks would be great! And I've been wishing for crafting areas at least in the neighborhood since buying my 1st house well over a year ago.

I dont know about anyone else but Id also like the ability too craft in my own home. Create a system where your house can be expanded (with more chest's and rooms) so you can have a shop. I dont want to have a vendor or anything, but I would like the be able to have Superior (insert tables or forge here) in my own home.
