I remember a couple years back there was a mechanic where there was only a limited amount of houses available for purchase at one time. If the stock ran out, no one could buy that type of house. I don’t remember whether it was for all house types or just for the late-game ones. Was there ever a mechanic like this or am I misremembering?

@Pudding2019

The houses having a limited stock used to be a feature. They removed that a long while ago and made it where the houses all have unlimited stock which was for the better, if that feature was still on the site not many people would have the top tier house.

Edit: Went back and checked the news, looks like the change was made 4 years back, to the unlimited housing stock change: House Inventory Changes!

Yup, and it wasn't great for the economy xD

I think I understood the logic of it though. It gave people something to look forward to and save up for. The problem was that it had to be done manually by an admin, and Komodo was a busy guy so it was a very rare occurrence. So you had lots of players who wanted to sell their current house and buy a new one, but couldn't because there were no new houses available. And people in the endgame houses had no reason to sell their houses, so it caused major stagnation in the market.

If the intention is to give people something to look forward to, I think timed restocks could still work IF they were automatic and more frequent (like at least twice a month).

I do like the current arrangement though... xD

Thank you! The memories suddenly popped into my head recently and I couldn’t tell whether it was a weird dream, a false memory, or something that really happened XD Thanks for clearing it up :3
