@ DragonChixx- a long long time ago in a Q+A session mods had brought up that they were working on Construction updates. About 2 years ago or a year ago.
And according to a reliable insider source, we were supposed to get construction updates by the end of the year.
However- I think a long time ago what they were actually working were Clan Citadels. I bet they were going to have it be part of your house or construction, but soon became it's own thing altogether.
In the past few months Jagex has been looking at and asking for Construction suggestions. This likely means that they are working on Construction updates but they won't be released for a good while.
Construction needs more- more decor, more rooms, more use, more fun.
I have been waiting for ages to redo my house (years actually) because I do not want to waste money redoing my house then redoing it a second time when new updates appear.
Constructions updates would be wonderful. IMO woodcutting and agility have gotten more updates than Construction.

The last time there were improved graphics in a POH was when Jagex had redid the game graphics entirely and the POH trees got a small improvement.
The formal garden flowers look outdated as does other things in the POH.
Ah well, in time, in time.

Amen! New trees would be amazing and would make formal and unformal gardens more appealing!
I also understand that for those with expensive and well planned homes that new updates come with the issue of losing time and money.
My house is still in it's lvl 50-60 state despite me raising my con level. I see no point in pouring a lot of money and decor into it when I know sometime in the future Jagex will be releasing more content. That's when I'll scratch it and start over.
I think we'll have more in the future. It's a matter of waiting now. I hope they are taking updates seriously and they'll be putting a lot of effort into them.

^ Alpha, I know what you mean about pets. I am actually planning on building my new house around my menagerie, so there will be gardens then room walls surrounding that, keeping them inside the garden area!
But you need to build your house a certain way to do that. Fences would help!

@ Dontdothedew
Awesome name btw
A greenhouse sounds like a wonderful edition to our POH, and given that Jagex has released rewards from polls that didn't win, it's entirely possible it will make it into the game.
Is there a place I can learn more about the finalist ideas? It's always possible Jagex could work on them all.

Thank you so much for that information!
The green house sounds like a good possibility of a POH addition even if it wasn't in second place.
A customizeable agility course sounds very interesting too.
Goodness, I have been considering getting 86 con to boost to 92 for a natural pet house- I think I finally have the motivation too!
Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed for the future construction updates!

@ Vanilla Sky
Yeah, citadels are going to be taking away a lot of traffic and attention from POHs.
I am hoping that Jagex realizes that construction is a popular skill but it needs a lot of work too. Hopefull we'll get everything from new house styles to updated graphics and more rooms.
I love gardens, but the flowers are especially outdated in terms of graphics.
Let's hope Jagex looks long and hard at the skill and gives it the attention it deserves.

Yeah, it will be a long time before we see the updates. I just hope Jagex takes them seriously and we have better graphics, more use and more flexibility with our homes.
That's ok, making your own planks is taking forever and I'll need many more games of Stealing creation to reach my construction goal.
This has been a very informative thread. Thanks everyone!

Well looks like its going to fail in the polls. So maybe in another year or so?


That poll wasn't for a construction update- it was for a way to train construction.

That's why it failed, I know, I posted comments on the discussion thread. Making it easier and faster to level a skill no one wants to use is the problem.

It wasn't because players didn't want construction updates, it was because it wasn't actually about construction updates.

I believe SOMETHING new should be introduced as soon as possible. The complete revamp can wait; just a new room or perhaps a few bug fixes - anything to indicate that the skill has not been forsaken would be very much appreciated.


Completely forsaken is a great way of describing construction.

WOODCUTTING HAS GOTTEN MORE UPDATES THAN CONSTRUCTION.

WOODCUTTING.

Think about that for a while.
