The story my castle tells is pretty much: "OH GOD, WHERE CAN I MAKE ROOM FOR THAT?"
Mine was organized until I found out about roads. When I started putting down roads, i moved everything out of the way. Later, by accident I found I could have simply left everything in place and added the roads under them. Once my roads are down, I an reorganize and maybe even make it look great.

@betenoirmobile

Thanks Tony!  I appreciate that.  I am going to incorporate the corral idea too :)

@Oracle

Nice suggestion, but it feels like you guys would have your hands full with implementing such a contest.    I think the theme in the castle Betenoirmobile was pointing out is something like,   the only true freedom is in death  (I've heard a quote a lot like that somewhere). 

Anyhoos, a contest could pick a theme or a famous one line quote, and make it so.  Either everyone do the same theme, or everyone pick from a gaggle of them. 


My castle tells a story, I just want more stuff to decorate with (and ideas to use what we already have :) ).


Thanks for taking me serious too :)

It took me an embarrassingly long amount of time before I found the edit control. I spent a week or two saving up sapphires to expand the castle because I thought that was going to be the only way to make extra room to build my Black Market, before working out that I was able to move things around a bit after I'd first plonked them down.

I always quite like the ones with messages written in them :)

FYI Anyone with poor internet no need to worry. Castle load times aren't to do with internet bandwidth they are down to the inefficiency of flash using up the resources of your PC. Good PC/laptop = fast castle rending.
Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

Personally Idc what my castle looks like as long as it has some D pts to help protect my defense 

 But as many people know I have around 200 leprechauns running through my castle hehe. But as most server 3 players know this castle, I wanted to post it because of the time it takes for your screen to load up so many.....

Yep, the big junked up castle get a trip and no wraith or guard raised from me. 3 min to load a castle is ridiculous.

So because players are trying to protect their castle and your tripwires you can't be bothered to help them. That does not sound like teamwork. I would suggest you ask for loading time improvements rather than failing to help your teammates.

So sending them a trip is not helping them? And the persistent serial trouble makers i make a note to move next to them and slap the snot out of them.


With the amount of time to play per day at 2 hours or so, So i should use half of my game time waiting for bloated castles to load? I dont think thats going to happen.

I must have a better computer and internet than I thought I bought.... NO castle takes me more than 15 seconds to load, even my own fat one.  I'm also almost apologetic to anyone visiting :(

Yours doesn't seem to be taking an inordinate amount of time to load, Anje.


Have you been digging some new wells recently? Or am I only just noticing things that have been there all along?

I may have added a well or two or ten.  I'm still trying to make it easy on the eyes, since I seem to be looking at it an awful lot

It is hard to find the balance between loading your castle with as much CD as you can, and making it look nice. 


here is my attempt.  http://prntscr.com/g4ekrr


You can find me on Server 2, LordsoftheBlackRose, Dailach (I'm a Cptn, so easy to find)

Here's mine but didn't realise how much the roads affected the loading of the castle. I would like most of these roads to be exchanged for saphs, so I can add other improvements instead. (I heard that this has been done before and would appreciate help)

and saw this one in Dark Phoenix and would liked to have said my walls were first, but they weren't.
