What is the distinction between historic and non-historic building?
You should decide whether you (and your students) want to help build the historic part of Rome or whether you wish to build a Roman structure that is not linked to the rest of Rome.
Before applying for a building permit, please familiarize yourself with the following information about VRoma buildings and our policies regarding the types of buildings. We also have available a list of public buildings that are not yet spoken for and some recommended bibliographical sources for you to consult as you design your building.
In VRoma, there are 2 different kinds of buildings:
When you log into the VRoma MOO, you will find yourself in the Prima Porta. From here, you can go east to the Officina, which is where the non-historic buildings are located, or west to Rome and the historic buildings. Other than being located in different sectors of the VRoma MOO, the primary distinction between an historic and a non-historic building is that, although both should be based upon ancient Roman customs and practice, an historic building is required to be historically accurate and authentic, while a non-historic building may be more loosely evocative of ancient Rome.
