Final Fantasy XIV Updates: Shirogane Housing and Relocation and Auto-Demolition for Housing Suspended for Hurricane Victims

September 14th, 2017 by Raptorchan

The development team has released a post on the Lodestone detailing new information for the new housing district, Shirogane, as well as covering new housing features coming in Patch 4.1, which is scheduled for an early October release.

As with the previous three residential districts, Shirogane will have 12 housing wards, with each ward having its own subdivision and apartment buildings. Shirogane homes will have a Far-Eastern aesthetic to them by default.

A new moving feature is coming in 4.1 as well, called Relocation. According to the Lodestone post, players who already possess a home will be able to move to the new Shirogane location if they want, moving their entire house and all its furnishings to the new housing plot of their choice.

To begin the process, inspect the placard located at the entrance of the destination plot and select Purchase Land. A prompt for relocation will appear, allowing you to move your estate immediately after the purchase is complete. You are not required to relinquish ownership of your old plot prior to relocation. In the case of company estates and estate sharing, all players with access to the estate will receive a notification when the process is complete.

* Only free company members who have been granted authority to purchase and relinquish land can relocate company estates.
* Players who are inside an estate at the time of relocation will be automatically moved outside.

Cost:

When purchasing a plot for relocation, 30% of the minimum value of your old plot will be applied towards the price of the new one.

(Cost of Relocation) = (Destination Plot Price) – (30% of Old Plot Price)

* In the event reimbursement for the old plot exceeds the price of the destination plot, the cost of relocation will be waived. Please note, however, you will not receive gil for the amount that exceeds the cost of the destination plot.

Private Chambers, Workshops, Airships, Stabled Chocobos and Shared Estate Settings will be carried over to the new estate.

Another new housing feature coming in patch 4.1 is Storerooms, which will offer additional storage for estate halls, apartments and private chambers. According to the post, housing items will be stored in this space automatically upon relocating to a new home, including items that would normally be discarded upon removal.

The size of storerooms will depend on the item limit of the house. For instance, a Large house has a furnishing limit of 400 indoors and a limit of 40 outdoors, so storerooms will have space for 400 indoor and 40 outdoor furnishings.

You can see additional information and item limits on the Lodestone.


Additionally, Naoki Yoshida addressed a forum request to put a pause on auto-demolition for housing, so victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, as well as the fires of California and Canada, would not have to worry about their in-game homes being demolished due to lack of internet and power.

FFXIV Producer and Director Yoshi-P here.

It warms our hearts to see such an outpouring of support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma in recent days. The thoughts and prayers of all of us on the FFXIV development and operations teams are with the people of Texas, Florida, the Caribbean, and the other areas affected by these terrible storms.
Many of you have requested that we suspend estate auto-demolition, as players in these regions may have difficulty logging in at this time. The team understands this, and so we have decided to suspend auto-demolition temporarily.

Commencement of Auto-Demolition Grace Period: September 15, 2017
Duration: 14 days (tentative)

At the end of this two week period, we will determine whether or not it is necessary to extend the grace period, and inform you all of our decision.
Furthermore, as more detailed information regarding the situation on the ground in these regions becomes available, we will continue to discuss internally what other ways we may be able to ease the burden on those affected.

We pray that the recovery efforts go smoothly, and that those of you who were affected will be able to join us again in Eorzea soon.
