Beds, right now, are the one thing that can be assigned to Hearthlings. They’re the one personal connection our Hearthlings have to the world. … Why not extend this silly metaphor I just thought up further?
Each building with beds should have a capacity, the number of beds.
- If it has no beds, it’s public property. Anyone can walk through it and use it.
- If it has one bed, it’s a private house. If the bed is assigned to a Hearthling, they will prefer using items in that building while other Hearthlings will try to avoid using its items, and maybe even walking through.
- If it has more beds than that, Hearthlings assigned to its beds will “own” the items closest to their bed or in their room and share everything further.
It probably won’t be quite that simple but I just wanted to get my thoughts down tonight. I’ll improve my suggestion in the morning if I think of anything.
