Sure, WildStar had some endgame things like high-level Adventures, dungeons, and raids, but for many players (self included), the real endgame was housing. So imagine my delight when I learned that Nexus Forever, the in-development WildStar emulator, has started to make housing functional.
A video update posted for this past September has confirmed that housing plots are operational, along with plot remodeling features like changing the ground, sky, and background music as well as the ability to place prefab plots and change features to the outside of a placed house. According to one Redditor’s account, most decor items should be operational, though interactive elements of plots or decor items aren’t functioning right now and players cannot enter their house yet. The video also confirms that vanity pets are working and mob random movement is working.
This is the most recent update from Nexus Forever since one from this past June, which provided a look at the Medic class in action on the emulator.
If all of this has you pining for the fjords of Nexus, then there’s a reunion planned on Discord this coming Saturday, November 30th, at 9:00 p.m. EST, which promises a karaoke party, the opportunity for friends old and new to meet up, and “private server shenanigans.”
