I was looking at some Markets, namely Furniture and Clothing, and I understand why they aren't hot and heavy. How many Apartment Owners are there in Arkadia (or the Universe, but that's another topic)? What percentage of the Population? Once those few have the Furniture they want, there simply is no more Market. If every Player had a 'One Room' Living Space, which could be 'Instanced' (so as not to have an actual gigantic building with thousands of rooms... imagine trying to get to Room 5138...) then EVERYONE would be in the Market for Furniture. Aside from Furniture, if everyone had such a space, more people might 'throw a party' or invite small groups (one room could only accept small groups) where Clothing in the "Apartment Setting" might actually inspire more people to pick up a Shirt here or a Hat there when inviting people over (or visiting). It might also add to the Social Aspect of the game more. I'm not saying some huge Apartment with a vista, could be as simple as a 'Hotel' at the Starting Area where the Keeper logs you and guests into your little space. I think such an thing could have a positive impact on the Economy in Arkadia and give more Crafters more items that would actually sell... and more materials for Hunters and Miners to sell.
