    Guild Hall Amenities Permissions

    There are some guild hall amenities that are not automatically set to visitor access that I feel really should be open to all. Some of them are the Portal to Member Housing, Localized/Expanded Guild Hall Teleportation Network, Commodities Exporter, and Fuel Merchant. Giving the visitor access allows people to use them. There are many guild leaders or decorators that do not know that amenity permissions can even be changed. If you can set the access on an amenity, two fields will be displayed on right hand side just below the Amenities list.

    If you are hired to decorate a guild hall you might want to talk with the guild leader to find out if some of these permissions should be changed. Some guilds that raid allow others to join. If the settings to the Guild Strategist are set to visitor access then someone outside the guild can go to a placed flag but they cannot obtain a flag for placing themselves. I have been in a couple guilds that have needed the Guild Strategist to be set to visitor for this reason. I have also been in guilds that roleplay and didn't want visitors to be able to use the teleporters so they could block off everything besides the entryway unless there was a specific roleplay event happening. So it is always a good idea to ask.

    To change permissions to amenities:
    1. Open Guild Hall Window by
    a. Right click door and click Access
    b. In Chat window type /house and press enter
    2. Click on the Amenities tab of the Guild Hall window
    3. Scroll to the amenity and click on it
    4. Click on the drop down and pick desired access level (Visitor, Friend, or Trustee)
    5. Click the Set Access button.

    House Actors: Setting Both Models

    I have been touring a bunch of houses lately and found that people are only setting one model for their house actors. I mentioned how to set both in a different post but thought it deserves a write-up with screenies.

    How to set:
    1. Set the house actor race, gender, and appearance like normal and click OK button customize appearance window
    2. Go to EQII Menu Button and click Options
    3. Click the Alternate Models tab
    4. Click the Select All Models button. If the house actor looks the same, click Turn Off All Models button

      • If you clicked both buttons and your house actor doesn't change appearances, it is a race that only has one model so you can click Cancel and you are done
      • If your house actor changes appearance KEEP this Options window open and continue
    5. Right click house actor and pick Customize Face option

    6. Set appearance for this model and click OK button

    7. Click the Cancel button on the Options window. Your house actor should now look like the one in step 1.

    The video is now completed! Sorry if the timing is slightly off...there must be some setting in ezvid to change the speed of the audio so it matches up but I don't plan on using that software now that I have this video done.
