With a new, beautifully detailed world, we did not want to see it succumb to becoming a littered with empty plots or warehouses and made the decision to disable AoS custom housing. But in its place, Owyn crafted over 150 different homes, inns, house boats, orc forts and more!

Placing a house requires a 4 tile distance from the next nearest house on all sides, and 1 tile from any impassable object.
