Preview RIFT’s player dimensions made with the Anywhere key

Player housing sometimes is difficult to get a handle on. When given an infinite canvas, some players don’t know what to do with all of it. So that’s one of the reasons to take a look at a tour through several RIFT player dimensions made with the Anywhere key in a video just past the break.

The other reason? Well, these places look really good. Even if you don’t play RIFT, you can no doubt appreciate that. Jump on down to see all of them on display; it’s only five minutes long, and it’s a lovely guided tour made by Nouvae on Twitter.

Still hoarding dim items for when I want to make my Ascended’s home, ha.

Vexia  It takes a long-arse time and Dimension items are not cheap.  Some stuff you can only buy with Credits, too, which is really bothersome.  

Anytime I’d start working on a Dimension I’d look at the time, realize I spent 3-4 hours not getting a whole lot done, and got turned off from working on it further.  Especially when it’s such a huge platinum sink (or money grabber).

I can’t begin to imagine how much Platinum or real money these things must’ve cost to create.

Vexia You can actually get some decent pre-built structures with plat or very little credits and fill those pretty quickly. The housing item prices are a bit wonky, some things are really cheap with in-game currency and others have exorbitant in-game prices yet only cost a couple credits (or whatever their cash shop currency is called). You can also get a ton of housing stuff playing the little minion game, some of it is pretty nice stuff. The UI is fairly intuitive, much better than EQ2’s for example where you need a 3rd party program for any complicated placement. Obviously you get what you put into it, but the pre-made structures help cut that time down if you get those.

squidgod2000 It really is. I even happened upon one with an infinity pool the other day.

ManastuUtakata Yeah, while I can appreciate the beauty they represent, I do like to have my more magitech fantasy/steampunk thingie that meshes better with the universe of Rift. Then again, they are ‘dimensions’, so I guess having one or two phased into 1960’s Terra isn’t too far-fetched.

agemyth You can also put a bank access into your dimension. I have one tucked away very unobtrusively in mine. 
The cool thing about having the bank in the dimension is that I can be out fishing, and say my inventory becomes full of fish, but I don’t feel like leaving my fishing spot to teleport back to town, unload, and then teleport back to the nearest portal, then run back to find that neat spot I’m using. 
SO much easier to instead pop in and out of my dimension without moving from my spot a single inch.

Nimway agreed, that’s been a point of frustration for me, that I can make such lovely couches, but my character lacks the proper sit pose to look as if she’s actually relaxing on any of the furniture items I’ve so painstakingly made.

Vexia I put together a single story house with an underwater entrance, replete with living room, bedroom and lavatory with storage loft and a small attached dock and it took me 2 days straight over the course of a weekend to throw together. I only used items that I could purchase for in-game currency, buy on the AH or craft.

Dimensions are the one thing that always brings me back to Rift, time and time again. I have 8 of the things, 3 of which are fully built up, and one of which’s item capacity is maxed out completely. I’ve built a spooky wizards’ tower, a rustic pirate hideout, and a mist-wreathed Halloween scene. I don’t like using the pre-fab structures, so I make my own, using rocks and outcroppings for walls, wood planks, barrels and altars merged together for furniture. 
The items you can craft, find as drops, earn reputation for or buy are flexible enough that you can make your scene of the fantastic, mundane, contemporary, futuristic or medieval.
I think if I could get an update on my character’s model and running animation I’d never have a reason to put the game down.
