    This is the oldest complaint ever...

    In the six years i have been here...
    I have seen soo...many posts about how stupid it is that you should have to fire your staff and move off your island in order to fix up another property you have. Yet in those years...I have Never seen anything done about it.

    If you agree something should be done...Please up vote and share.

    LET ME RENOVATE MY SECOND HOME... WITHOUT HAVING TO MOVE OUT OF MY FIRST!!

    The property system is one of Torn's most ancient, but thanks to some recent refactoring I believe I've managed to do this, and it's now live.

    There were numerous challenges in order to get this working properly, for example this added one too many icons in certain situations, but fortunately I managed to find ways around every issue I found.

    Again, this system is old and complex, I feel I've tested as much as I can, but let's see if anyone uncovers some weird scenario that causes it to break.

    I think there would be an issue with making money too easy to hide if you're able to switch around properties without any happy loss.

    I could get behind something like this if maybe the game automatically fired staff after 15 minutes of no one living there, but if people are able to just move around between properties without risking the happy loss, it would allow very wealthy players to easily double/triple/so on their private vault storage without any risk, albeit at an fairly steep initial cost.

    But if they mistime it and don't get back to the original property or upgrade the new one in, they should be forced to take that happy hit.

    In real life...Do you have to move out of your house in order to renovate another place?

    Ok I misunderstood the original post, I thought you were suggesting being able to move between properties as well as renovating them without firing staff.

    There should be drawbacks to moving back and forth between properties, but players should definitely be able to buy additions for them without having to move in.

    [Deleted] Missed relevant details and intent. Totally my fault.

    I too think that you should be able to deal across properties as the owner without having to alter staff and race the happy clock.

    Why does this not have more bumps?  Why does this not have more likes?  The level of ridonkulousness at having to move into a place to knock out a wall and put in a sauna is unprecedented.  Please pass this one on, folks.  :)

    Like, and Bump. Totally Agree. Very inconvenient and very unrealistic. It could totally be changed in a fashion that does not give certain players a huge advantage to exploit.

    Unfortunately this has been shot down several times before... Don’t remember the reasoning behind it, I think it’s just SUPER low “priority” for devs.

    She cast her spell upon the Scepter, getting quieter with each word of her incantation. Upon completion of her casting, all fell Silent. Then, the enemy knew their doom was at hand.
