Set aside your castles in the air: Crowfall’s castles are built on solid ground. ArtCraft’s most recent dev blog is all about them, or rather, about the battlements, walls, and gatehouses that will make your in-game castle an actual fortification instead of just a place to stash your prettiest loot.
“The deeper we dig into Eternal Kingdom construction and the quest for Castle customization, the more modular this feature becomes,” ArtCraft says. “We want to deliver the maximum amount of options with the minimum number of assets and deeds. This way, we save you inventory space and save ourselves some overhead (or more like over-headache amirite?)! With all that being said (brace yourselves): MEGA DEEDS are coming!”
So what the heck is a mega deed? It’s a deed grouping, essentially: “Let’s say you’re building with 1×1 stone wall pieces. With the correct deed, you can place a 1×1 stone wall OR a 1×1 sloped stone wall or even a 1×1 half-sloped wall! Multiple options but one deed to rule them all!” Moreover, players will be able to use panels to trick out an existing structure and “alter it for any aesthetic or practical purpose.” I’m gonna turn all mine into stockades for the trolls!
If you’re into building design in your PvP games, you’re going to want to check this one out in all its glory on the official website.
