You'll think I'm crazy, but I'm dropping a max storage house for a little 8X8:O. I could not resist the location.
It is in a great spot for a little Island Lighthouse. I hope I can figure out a way to make it look acceptably like a Lighthouse, and I'd appreciate some suggestions on what would make the best light for the top, and I'm looking forward to testing some ideas. Thanks

For my lighthouse, I used crystal braziers.

I was going to suggest the orange hued communication crystals. Because those fluctuate on and off, like a light house does.

You're totaly right. You're Insane in the Membrane!!!

But I have seen some amazing lighthouses, back in the day... made from big to small, like a tall tower.

Best light? A short vet brazier... with the flame. Place it on something. Don't use the taller version. Think... water... wind... blow over something like the tall version, so use the shorter. Not to mention, historicaly speaking, it was an oil fired light. So this works. =)

Not crazy.

Either that or I'm the same kind of crazy.

I twice went from large houses to tiny houses in order to have a house close to my guild HQ (aka player run towns). On the other hand, I never had that much stuff. Once my house was decorated and I was fully equipped (with spare suits in the bank), I only ever collected raw materials. Even the power scrolls I earned over time went straight to people in greater need than mine. Anyhow, one of those smaller houses did turn into a lighthouse.

I also used the braziers. For a while I used a fire-pit too, since it was handy at the time, but I liked the braziers better.
I have also seen comms crystals used to great effect by other pirate-y guildmates for the same effect.

Thanks for all the input, I'm looking through a shameful number of containers finding some of your suggestions to test.
