Haiban

Postby Zoiya » Fri Jul 10, 2015 2:20 pm

Hi guys!

I've been working on a project that has been ongoing for a while. It's still in the works but I want to give you a heads up to what will be changing, so that when stuff starts to happen, nobody gets confused or upset.

Haiban is expanding. When it is live you will be able to access the expansion from the wilderness, north of the river and from Haiban (south) itself.

The way that I have envisioned it will make Haiban North the more industrial area, and Haiban as you know it now will be more of a commercial district. In order to make this work, things will be moving and it will be a bit of an adjustment for a short amount of time.

I want to spread Haiban South out a bit more as well, there are a lot of places and things in a small cluster of rooms, and once Haiban North is live - the forges and leather working stations in Haiban South are going to be converted into regular city blocks with shops and buildings more spread out.

Now, some of this will be considered a retcon, but Haiban North itself was contributed in game, so it's a building process. I don't want to get too much into this, but if suddenly something has moved, lets assume that you might have been slightly fuzzy on where it was in the first place. I will do my best to document here where things are and where they have gone (if they have been moved).

There are many other additions coming to Haiban, I want it to be as equipped as our other starting towns. If you have any suggestions for things that you would like to see, this is the place to tell me. Same for if you have any questions about the coming changes!

Thanks for reading!

I'd love a harmonicas teacher. Maybe an in lnstrument shop in general? With all the hubbub that should be Haiban I can see loads of instruments being sold (maybe even pianos!)

I think this might be a great chance to introduce and open up artisan shops, instead of the now defunct carts.

Perhaps simply have one 'empty shop' or something in several rooms, or a bunch in one area so that they're there, even if they aren't properly coded in to be used yet.

Purchase orders will now be available in the Artisan Compound on Artisan Way. It's right inside the compound in the office.

The Artisan Compound will be replacing the warehouse that is currently located on South Road.

The Artisan Compound is now open, in the near future you will have to go here to do your forging/lapidary/leatherworking. The tradecraft roads in Haiban will be closed down at that time. There are trainers in the compound for blacksmithing, lapidary and leatherworking that ALL can access, the same with rentable workshops.

Please bug anything that is wonky.

The Artisan Compound is down the avenue on Artisan Way.

There are workrooms available in the artisan compound. For now, and until we're able to implement a fix, you can ONLY rent one room and it will keep you from renting inn rooms. I am going to try to find a way to fix this, so keep this in mind until then. There are plenty of other rooms available to do small work until then.

The mercenary barracks are now located right inside the Haiban North gate, better to keep those pesky bad people out. :)

I am currently in the process of moving all clothing type stores onto Silk road, which is the far northern road of Haiban now. Please bear with me as I update what has ended up where when I finish.

Haiban Outfitters, Antony's, and the perfume shop are now located on Silk road. Still to come there? A nice little cafe, Kyskie's new shop and Zonia's bookstore.

Silk road can be found all the way north when you enter the city.

This is the last change I'm making tonight, I'll do some mapping and decide if anything else needs moved before I start adding new shops and other fun things.

I'm so happy to see all these things being done with Haiban, but don't forget to do little things like... eat... and sleep. Clok will still be here tomorrow.

Locke is located in his office in the Artisan Compound. If you are looking for temporary forges or leatherworking stations, you must go to the avenue where the new artisan compound is, go down the pathway and the forge is located north from the pathway, the leatherworking stations are located east and south of the pathway.

The workyard has been moved to Haiban North in the Artisan Compound. There are generic wagons available in the stable as well, but if you want options, you have to go to the Compound.

The mortuary has been replaced by a temple, it is in the same room. Anyone who logged out in the mortuary will still be able to exit to the room it used to exist in.

Zoiya, what you've been doing with Haibon is nothing short of incredible, even by the high standards you normally set for these things. Thank you.
P.S. I finally got the Y and the I in your name in the right order. :)

Yeah, I agree. I'm really liking the additions to Haiban so far.
