    Hi all,

    I've been reading the guide "Guide to home ownership" I was suprised about all that stuff about tables, trash barrels, etc.

    I didn't remember anything like that in OSI servers.

    It's necessary to put as is related in the guide? Is to avoid people who can stealh into the house?

    I can't understand very well the puporse of put a lot of tables and stuff in houses. It seems a bit uncomfortable. Could you explain if this still is required?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's essential.

    If you don't have a security wall, you leave yourself wide open to getting jacked.

    Always keep your doors locked, always detect hidden when you enter your spot and have a macro for spamming "I ban thee" and target nearest grey.

    Thanks for the quick reply Earsnot.

    But this is becayse a thief can open a lock door of a house? I usually used recalls to go inside/outside house because it was in a remote location.

    And about the keys attached in the door, if this mandatory too?

    Thanks again, I'm a bit lost with this.

    @Reaper for some house types you can avoid table walls and rely on locking interior doors. You'll have to store your goods in the rooms and if you want to store anything in the common area it must be in secure containers. I do that in my L-shape to preserve clean interior.

    Coming to think of it, I don't know an answer to one question: is range of detect hidden limited in a house? Or will it detect a thief anywhere as long as he's inside?

    No one can unlock your locked door. The table wall is a second line of security in case you forget to lock your door or you're slow getting it locked and they stealth in with you. You have 100% chance to reveal with detect hidden inside your house.

    With limited lock down space most people leave unsecured items behind the table wall and use a secure containers before the table wall. Most people use a trash barrel. You can keep an axe in a secure container and record a razor macro to open secure, use axe, target barrel to make things a little less annoying.

    What about the range? If you use detect hidden on the first floor of your tower, will it detect a thief on another floor?

    So in this case I can just lock door and use recalls to get in out house without any worries, isn't it?

    Yes, the entire house, including porch, is revealed. This excludes courtyards.

    You can't mark a rune inside a house. This method only works for huge houses with courtyards, but that's a completely different story...

    Another question, secure containers can be opened by a thief?

    @Reaper nope, that's why they are secure :)

    But you have a very limited amount of secure containers per house (this depends on the house size).

    @Reaper moreover, a secure container can only hold 400 stones of weight / 125 items, while locked down containers have no weight limit, only 125 items limit. Not locked down containers have a limit of 100 items (not sure about weight, I guess unlimited?).

    Just a little more food for thought:

    You want to be extra careful and extra paranoid with home security. There are several people on this server that have gotten very adept at breaking into houses. Make sure you read everything there is on home security and make sure you stay super paranoid, it's the only way to ensure you don't get robbed.

    To this day I continue to randomly detect hidden inside my house.

    They are also 125 items/400 stone weight.

    If you don't have a house full of unsecure junk you don't need table barriers etc, but with no item decay in houses and limited secures it's likely you will end up with items that need that protection.

    Hm, really? Maybe it has something to do with the type?
    I tried it with backpacks only and backpacks have 100 item limit when not locked down...

    You can also overlock a secure bag, hella handy for a door frame nut sack bag with regs in it for quick restocks:

    Pow! So if you can get 124 secure items with significant weight to it danglin' on yo door if you want.

    My time is for hire if you want security set up.
    I'm able to advise with entrance / exit security, mining traps and secure rooms / rune libraries.

    Just don't die inside your house sparing, macroing etc. with anything you do not want to lose as if you do and your corpse goes to bones being inside a house is no different than anywhere else.
