Every account is a Kingdom in EK...Right? and can friends put their Kingdoms side by side?


Recommended Posts

There have been a lot of questions similar to this but not quite like it.

 

From the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS | ETERNAL KINGDOMS

 

1. HOW DO I GET A KINGDOM?

 

Every account is granted a Kingdom. They start as mini-worlds that players can use to build and explore and can be expanded to become much larger.

 

4. HOW ARE KINGDOMS LAID OUT, AND HOW BIG ARE THEY? IS IT LIKE A HOUSING INSTANCE?

 

Eternal Kingdoms are very large! Much bigger than a typical MMO housing instance. The map of every kingdom is divided into a square grid at different resolutions.

 

Each LOT is 8 meters by 8 meters in size.

Each SUPERLOT is 5 lots by 5 lots.

Each CELL is 5 superlots by 5 superlots.

Each SUPERCELL is 5 cells by 5 cells.

Each KINGDOM can be up to 5 supercells by 5 supercells.

 

<That's 25 million square meters or 25 square kilometers or a square 5 kilometers in length of the sides.>

<That works out to be a little over 9.5 square miles or a square a little over 3 miles in length of each side.>

 

I assume from this, each player/account, from the $30 Contributor – Earliest Bird to the $175 Gold Patron, will have a 5 supercells by 5 supercells Kingdom. Is that Correct?

 

My wife and I would like to have our Kingdoms, our squares next to each other, can that be done or is the placement random?

Thanks guys for your replies, how ever that's not quite what I was asking. I know we could let each other have a parcel in the others kingdom, but what I wanted to know was could we place the kingdoms next to each other.

 

I don't think my wife could afford the rent I would charge her and I know I couldn't afford the rent she would charge me. So can I put my 9.5 square mile kingdom next to her 9.5 square mile kingdom?

 

I expect we will see if you can siege in EK, I want to reduce her castle to rubble and take a screen shot for my wall paper...lol.

Read the article link I put on.

 

"A player can choose to build up their own Eternal Kingdoms, build in other players' realms, or ignore the use of Eternal Kingdoms entirely. It's totally up to the player to take advantage of this system or not. How about that? Having an actual choice within an mmorpg"

 

Read up to the second last paragraph.

I did read it, twice in fact, the article you game me the link to and the Crowfall news when they posted the information. You are absolutely correct, I could build up a parcel in her kingdom, or she could build up a parcel in my kingdom, or we both could build a parcel in each others kingdom. However that is not, nor has it ever been, the question I'm asking.

 

I'm assuming each players kingdom will be located in the EK's outer ring.

Now my kingdom may be located near the "S" in Kingdoms in the picture and her Kingdom may be located 3364 miles to the west near the "K" in Kingdoms in the picture. What I am asking is can we elect to have our Kingdoms, not parcels, not lots, not cells, but individual Kingdoms located on the "D" in Kingdoms in the picture, next to each other.

 

Like this...

TWO Kingdoms, not parcels, not lots, not cells, but individual Kingdoms, sitting side by side.

 

I appreciate you trying to help me, I just don't think you understood my question.

oh I see in that case most likely not. I Think ACE is not likely to put up and make you be able to choose having kingdoms of friends sit next to each others. The best bet you have is to utilize parcels on each other's kingdom. The land is vast my friends, crowfalls offer a great way for playing ears to interact with each others. Even if you guys are miles about, I am sure you will be able to find ways to connect and help out your wife's kingdom. Sorry if I wasn't able to help you. Regarding these questions, it's best to ask ACE personally.

As others have mentioned, each Eternal Kingdom is its own world. Players have great flexibility to place parcels, buildings etc within each Kingdom, but we do not place the Kingdom itself - it already exists 'out there' in the cosmos. There won't be any placing Kingdoms next to each other or anything like that.

There is no such thing as "being next to each other". They are separate worlds just like campaign worlds are separate. So you both of you can have your own kingdoms and visit each other anytime and in addition you can grant your wife parcels to have a house, a keep or a city in your kingdom and vice versa. But there is no "walking" to a specific eternal kingdom involved.

Yes, your wife's kingdom and your kingdom can be "next to" each other on the world selection screen where you choose which planet your character will log into.

as been said, ek's are like campaign worlds and so they most likely will be isolated from each other. this could change, but it seems unlikely.

 

 

however

 

I don't think my wife could afford the rent I would charge her and I know I couldn't afford the rent she would charge me. So can I put my 9.5 square mile kingdom next to her 9.5 square mile kingdom?

 

why would you charge your partner with additional taxes? or do you live in two different households and if you visit each other, you just have to pay wear fees-- and you think: as in life, so in game? uhm.

 

because if not, you dont have to. just set the tax as high as the parcels normal maintenance fees are. and thats it. she would have to pay the same in her own kingdom. or the other way round.

You forgot the main reason I wanted to have our Kingdoms side by side....

 

"  want to reduce her castle to rubble and take a screen shot for my wall paper"

 

I thought I would launch an over land attack on her castle, batter it to ruins and then sow salt across her land.

However I would like a developer to confirm your hypothesis, I expect your correct, but would like confirmation.

A lot of people were hoping to do that, but it seems like that won't be a thing in the Eternal Kingdoms.  You'll probably have to do this in the Campaign Worlds.

take a nearer look at the faq pictures at #15. you see the parcel administration window with checkboxes for "pvp" and "allow destruction". if this will not be changed, you should be able to fullfill your dreams within one kingdom. one castle yours, one castle hers. pvp and destruction on. lets go.

 

and btw it might be a good advise to examine the health condition of your relationship.  :D

Is there confirmation that 5 sc by 5 sc is the basic/minimum Kingdom size?

You've been given correct answers here: EKs are each on isolated worlds, and the idea of adjacency is meaningless.

 

5x5 supercells is not the "basic" or "minimum" kingdom size, it's the size of each kingdom. The idea of adding terrain to kingdoms was removed when they decided to give each kingdom its full max terrain as wild cells from the beginning.

 

If you're interested in developer confirmation of all answers posted to questions in Community Q&A, here are links to the news archive and the dev tracker.
