Settlement Kits for EE11

We were told that we might be able to get different kits for those abandoned settlements that we claimed. Kits based off of an alternative floor plan. I.E. I take an abandoned craft settlement but I want the kits for a rogue/wizard settlement. This was NEVER guaranteed.
Only true in the sense that the word guarantee was never used.

we plan to leave the settlement in its current template until the new settlement system comes online with EE11, at which point all settlements will be wiped out and will be rebuilt using settlement structure kits. You will receive settlement structure kits according to the template of your choice when that happens, so please notify us of that choice.

Ahh, see I did not ever see that email.

Had a posted reply here for a second, but just deleted it based on possible new information. My impression was that the offer to give a choice of settlement kits was made after the settlements were claimed. If it was made beforehand, then we'll have to reconsider. I'll look into this further.
I believe it was prior…any way to check the time stamp on lees post?

@ Bob,

Why can't we just get a uncategorized (except for plot size) menu of structures?

Maybe even let us combine plots in various ways, to add even greater diversity. Ie. 2 x smalls = medium; 3x smalls = large; Medium + Small = Large.

With this system, a settlement would still be prevented from doing all things.

The quote wasn't a post, it was an email sent to people after we captured settlements. It came after an email requesting clarification of when we'd be able to select a new template, which was generated after a previous conversation.

So, it's become clear that some decisions to claim a settlement were made based on implications that we'd be letting those settlements pick a template later. Along with that, there was some precedent for letting some other settlements switch templates when they switched owners.

Had we realized this offer had even been implied before all the work was done to claim these settlements, the conversation would likely have gone very differently. Fortunately, nothing has been done at this point that blocks us from reconsidering this decision and changing the way things get handed out.

I'm still concerned that any decision to make this choice more or less flexible for any or all settlements will be justifiably disappointing to a considerable segment of the settlements. However, now that this conversation is out there, I'd like to hear more opinions about what seems fairest to everyone.

I also recognize that some discussion of this topic might involve mention of settlement strategies or opinions you'd rather not discuss on the forums. If you'd rather discuss your opinion with me privately, please contact me at customer.support@goblinworks.com.

With me handing out all the kits manually, providing a full choice of kits would slow the process down quite a bit. We'd also hoped to have settlements do at least some trading between each other. All that said, it's worth considering. There may also be some ways to provide a smaller number of choices on top of a core set of kits.

I don't really see what's wrong with a slow process as far as handing out kits is concerned. Is there another huge update scheduled the week after EE11 that takes time priority? Do we really need to gate settlements with the plans of m.i.a. players from months and months ago (some of whom never even bothered to show up)? Don't we have enough gates to content right now? If anything, I think GW needs to give a little love to the couple of dozen people who have stuck through the recent crapstorm and who are still playing the settlement game.

Just my $.02

Edit: The only argument against, that I'm hearing, is that it will take more time and a few people won't be too happy. When has that stopped us before? smile

@ Bob,

I appreciate the consideration. One thing that might make it easier for the habd out is for a settlement leader to provide you with the:

Time
Place
List of structures

several days ahead of time.

That way you just teleport in with exactly what they requested. Think of the Seinfeld episode "The Soup Nazi", if they try to change the order when you're standing in front of them…. "No Soup For You!!!"

Being organized about things would definitely make the whole process easier to manage, and there's a way I could set things up for EE11 to make it a little easier to put each set of kits together. It would still mean a lot more manual work putting each set together, and would increase the odds that some settlements might not get their kits right away, possibly even taking a few days to get everything sorted out. Just something to keep in mind.

How about someone (settlement leadership) chiming in on why they feel alternative kit choices are unfair or a game damager?
