Small Ideas - AIN'T NO COMBAT THREAD

edited July 2013 in Idea Box
Since the IDEAS command tends to be a way to simply keep track of ideas (and a graveyard for them!), recreating this thread from old forums.


Current Idea: a GODSLIST or for HELP GODS to be updated and kept updated with more pertinent information about the Gods and their Orders. It could be similar to the Houses list, in that actively-tended god roles would be marked as such, inactive roles evident, possibly have some notice of the general order size at the time being (large, moderate, small), if there's an order head active, and possibly what 'stance' the God has taken (IE Aggressive, indifferent, scholastic, etc).

    Or Illumination, for that matter. For campfires, cigarettes, pipes, etc.

    They said no for pipes because the aim isn't that good, though for larger things, it would nice to see it expanded (I love that I can firebreath a forge to life!).

    Webs aren't like clans. They are recycled each time one is closed and created. I don't think a WEBTELLS command is in the cards.
    Some may say we've lost our way, but I believe we've not gone far enough.

    - To be able to WARES (craftskill), to see all of something in that skill in a shop, rather than having to do a bunch of searches by item-type. IE: WARES COOKING would show all cooking items.


    I really, really like this idea.

    Allow PATH FIND to work to major monuments (ie PATH FIND SPINESREACH) without having to be within a certain nearby area, replacing the WALK TO command.

    And, on that note, let's remove the area restriction for path finding to room numbers.

    Adding onto Kiyotan's note about the library, it'd be great if we could LIBRARY SEARCH (author/term), but I don't know how feasible that is.

    - Isn't it about time we were able to use the LIBRARY CATEGORY <category> command and view only the books in that particular category?
    I think you can use LIBRARY CATALOG (category) for that.

    Can we have some kind of quest that allows you to change your endgame race? Some people still want to be Yeleni on the good team or something, even if all the Gods don't seems to care about it. Some of us (hi!) are purists up in this (beep)!

    So many mixed feelings about this. I personally want the rp that goes along with the changing from Azudim to Yeleni. However, it is disheartening to feel as if the Gods don't care about helping the few players that do want it. I worry a quest will cheapen the event and then there are those that will just switch a million times. But at the same time I feel the frustration at waiting and hoping a God will take pity on you and help you out.

    I think it's also a matter of the reasoning and handling of wanting the change. This 'purism' is super outdated, even if the IG messages about Azudim haven't been udpated with the lore/meaning of the race.  Now that Azudim is no longer bad or an abomination and is the other end of the cycle to Yeleni (death vs life, not to be confused with undeath), it does and should require more to change it than a costume change. 

    So in addition to that - could we get some updated messages for Azudims?

    When using an item in an emote, can we have three things: - The item is colored according to our CONFIG COLOR ITEMS and not EMOTES. - If the item is preeceded by an article, trim the article from the item. (eg: 'emote strums his $lute violently' wouldn't show as: Zun strums his a birch-wood lute violently.) - Thirdly, if MXP is enabled, allow us to click the item to view it.

    Can we bring back undeath/necromancy's negatives effects on the environment? I know it was a minimal thing (hell, we don't even really need the mechanical effect) but the flavor was nice and helped enforce why such things are bad.

    1) An 'ADOPT <person> AS CHILD' option for same-sex couples who still want a child/children. And a separate file to go with it. Such as, instead of BLOODLINE SHOW <person> you can do FAMILY SHOW <person> which would list each relative as 'Blood' or 'Adopted', and another file that would show only adopted family.

    2) Don't take my rockharvest/crush. I mean it. Just D'Awwing that out there.

    3) I just want to restate Kiyotan's Diamond idea. Crushing rocks for diamond dust would be amazing. And would also give me more incentive to stop whining about Rockharvest/Crush getting taken and make me get my butt up and bash Yuuki to Azuzu and beyond.

    4) Sentinels shouldn't be able to do a catapult in every room. Every-other room would be better. Allowing them to do it in every room lets them pretty much catapult you into a city you're enemied to.  Not cool. ((And if I'm not mistaken, it's breaking an Aetolia rule similar to mind wrenching, braziering, and luring people into enemy cities?))

    Also, I just thought of maybe being able to "ROCKHARVEST <colour>" so you can specify which colour you want and not have an OMG abundance of inks you'll just drop when you log/die if your cache is full. But still have ROCKHARVEST <colour> randomly pop a diamond dust rock is you do decide to allow Diamond Dust rocks.

    Just saying

    I know this was brought up in the old ideas thread but...more endgame races. Specifically - ones tied to city and/or gods. They wouldn't even by necessity have to have special commands/messages for their racial powers, they could just use the defaults - Azudim messages for Bloodloch, Idreth for Spines, Yeleni for Enorian, and maybe a new fourth endgame race for Duiran?

    (Yes, I know there are technically four endgame races already but Ankyrean hardly counts since there's only one)

    Ankyrean is for the city of Mazzion.

    I like the idea of more endgame races but I'd rather they not be tied in specifically tied to any one city beyond how Idreth is tied to Spinesreach currently (in that their Cabal were the ones to rediscover the method first). I'd much prefer alternate endgame races be rewards for great feats/events like how the Ankyrean one was. Like for winning an abundance of Order Wars Haern rewards his Order members an optional path to become <insert new endgame race here> after attaining a certain rank.
