View Full Version : Loss of the Kelethin Loft

08-28-2009, 10:30 AM
<p>Based on a great idea posted here that I borrowed (ok stole), I created a loft in my one-room.  Those ramps in the larger homes always interfered, so the one-room with the high ceiling was perfect.  While the addition of just a door in the Qeynos homes was easy to manage, the Kelethin one-rooms now have that big ramp in addition to the ceiling being lowered in the downstairs room.   I'm hoping this might be able to be changed before going live so it's just a doorway to another room with the ramp removed and height left.  Or raise the ceiling up to where it was for us loft people so we can better work in the ramp.</p><p><img src="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa132/Aspendawn_blog/kelethinoneroom2.jpg" width="640" height="512" /></p><p><img src="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa132/Aspendawn_blog/kelethinoneroom1.jpg" /></p>

<p>I feel your pain.</p><p>It's not just a problem with the 1-room loft.  Whereas extra rooms in the other houses have open entrances through to the new space with the minimum of disruption to existing fixtures and fittings, the Kelethin houses all get these extra ramps which take up huge amounts of floor and wall space and are incredibly difficult to disguise.</p><p>Two of my main decorating projects have been in 3-room acorns and the extra ramps have completely destroyed areas of these.  One is do-able but will leave an area in my garden looking very messy and cluttered rather than serene.  The other is going to involve hours and hours of rebuilding and completely ruin the look of the room even when finished.  I applaud the expanded space in all houses, and item count, and the new windows ... but I have to confess myself bitterly disappointed at this aspect of the change to the Kelethin acorns. </p><p>It would be far better if access to the upper floor was still just via the original ramp, with an archway through to the new room and no direct access down from the second room.  That gives the additional space, still makes sense logistically and doesn't interfere with anyone's pre-existing and much loved creations.</p>

<p>Here the project of Severai and my room...</p><p>That is my 3-rooms acorn currently... the new ramp will appear <strong>right in the middle </strong>of it, thus destroying it completely. THe white lines show where the ramp will be. I hope SOE will reconsider this change and add a simple door in the already existing upstairs room.</p><p><img src="http://www.raven-mythic.com/images/gallery/11735/20090527T203942/images/eq2000211.jpg " width="1280" height="1024" /></p>
