    So I've listened to everything Pantheon on Youtube while I was driving a team Semi-Truck cross country for the past 5 years. And I Love this game!!

    But now I have a lot of time on my hands and while playing Valheim with my friends I had an idea while we were building our first camp together... which now is a huge town!! (we're moving on to a create a Castle tomorrow after we spend all of today stocking up on stone... we don't have creative mode so a pickaxe it is!!!)...

    Could you guys create a tool that works like Landmark and we as the few... the chosen.. the fans can just... build, build, build!!) Man Hours mean a lot in MMOs and you obviously wouldn't have to use everything.

    I would Love to dedicate my time and creativeness towards an end goal of this being the New Everquest in memory of Brad's Dream of building a world!!


    Love Y'all!

    There has never been a plan of a building tool similar to landmark or Valheim.  They have talked about the possibility of guild housing (outposts) but it has always been slotted in for "post launch".

    I honestly would not want any kind of player building in the game.

    It would end up nothing but a bunch of dick shaped objects everywhere.

    Something like Player Studio maybe, where you submit designs and they are OK'd by the devs, sure. That'd be cool.

    But a building tool in game directly letting people build in game without moderation.... no thanks.

    If I read this correctly, you are offereing to help with building the game if such a tool were available.

    Thanks a bunch for the offer, that's very generous.

    Letting fans help with development is a very difficult issue for almost any company these days. Anyone who creates Intellectual Property has some legal right of ownership to it unless it is paid for, either as a single purchase or as a salary to you while creating it.

    Any for profit business that accepts meaningful amounts of work from 'volunteers'  - who do not earn any pay OR legal interest in the final product - risks running afoul of various worker's rights laws.

    Like much of the modern world, it's a tangled knot of issues. Which is why I don't think VR would do it, even if they DID have such a tool available.

    But I'm grateful for the offer, as I'm sure VR is.
