Check out /warp klupdate for some examples of updated houses and block palettes
We're using a three colour system of classifying houses as either green, orange or red depending on the level of work required to bring them up to the current server standard, as follows.
- Would take <15 minutes work to be acceptable by current server standards
- Updating consists of simple tasks such as replacing windows, fixing gradients, adding new daub and wattle blocks, removing overhangs and logs etc
- Likely between 5-30% of houses (dependent on district).
- Would take 15-30 minutes work to be acceptable by current server standards
- Updating is more extensive than green and entails fixing daub and wattle patterns, changing facades and roof shapes, fixing outdated interiors etc
- The majority of houses will fall into this category
- Would take >30 minutes work to be acceptable by current server standards (if not much longer)
- Updating would be considered more difficult than redo/massive overhaul
- Houses that would meet criteria to be classified as red include houses with unusual roof/facade shapes, very poor exteriors, very poor/difficult to quickly update interiors and houses that have an extensive combination of problems that would take an excessively long time to resolve
- Also may include houses that are outdated for other reasons (i.e. some of the tiny shacks that are scattered through the city, which would be easier to be redone entirely or replaced with yards/industry)
- Likely between 20-30% of houses (dependent on district)
- Houses can be grouped into clusters that can all be updated by the same builder at once so they can be organically blended together.
- World Edit doesn't copy paintings when things are copy/pasted. If you use a painting in your house (inc. shields/chains in low class houses), these will need to be replaced when the house is copied back into the main world. If you have used paintings, tag the house with a copper block and details of the painting in case somebody else needs to replace it for you later
