Since the removal of the housing and flats, and the idea being discontinued, I would like to make a suggestion to the build team @CyanPlayz. The suggestion is, to replace all the iron doors in the flats, so players can actually roleplay in them, as well as this, customising each flat differently, so there is a bit of design in each flat room.
The edits that could be made for the houses, could be to include furniture, and patch a few things from the original housing design, which includes some misplaced glowstone during the building process. The houses do need some furniture in them, and I feel this would be a great opportunity for the build team to include some and get creative. It would only be a side project, but it is also something that would make a rather big change to Lifeboat City.
