Thanks for the info. I'm going to take your advice and will start playing around with it later. I have no hard launch date, since I am mainly experimenting and just trying to make content at the moment so I definitely have time to learn how to do it the right way.
I still play on demise and see a regular count of mid 300. A lot of those are alts though, and afk resource gatherers which seem to have gotten out of hand. I didn't feel the same atmosphere there as I did in the old days, which is another reason I ended up here :D

the reason I used to do it with house plots was because I could easily customize the houses to reuse space and make different event dungeons in the same area.
I am going to try it your way too though, since I am looking to learn other techniques as well.
Thank you so much for the response...
Hey guys, I used to be a seer on the Demise server and recently downloaded servuo to mess around with shard creation.
I used to make dungeons out of housing plots, and recall that i could sink them to be level with the map to make them more seamless.
For the life of me, I cannot remember the...
