Hi there, while I wouldn't be alone in liking lots of extra features for the World Editor, one thing that continually frustrates me is the lights.

In just about every build using the night theme, I have to build the structure around the lights, there's been so many designs I've scrapped well into the build because of not being able to use lighting I would like, this is magnified 10 fold if you have multiple stories.

What I would dearly love is all 6 of the current lights with an option of them invisible, like the smoke, flame and lightning assets. If not invisible, some tiny prop versions of them, like the size of a real light globe? or even just 3 would be nice, the soft white, the spotlight and the fluro/led.

 

This would open up the options for builds so much. Using high ceilings and want the lights lower but don't want to use the chandelier, just make a nice lamp shade and hang it down from the ceiling, sure you can do that now, but the light being so far away from the floor makes it useless, or if you want to run some neat downlights throughout the home on the ground floor, no problems. Or if you would like decorative wall lights on a house/building(internal or external) its virtually impossible unless you have 2 foot thick walls. There are literally hundreds of other uses this would open up for all kinds of props, lights on vehicles, fish tanks, decorations, it goes on and on. 

 

Please oh please 3DX gods, help us.  :P

Totally agree with you there.
Lights are the demise of many builders.
I would love to have a slider for the light intensity, range and color because the classic emission material cannot provide enough power for small objects.

Another thing i would like to see is a "lock-time" option for rooms. That means that you force all the people inside the room to have the same time, and they cannot change it.

Aside from the lights I also believe that a feature to bend objects would come in handy pretty often. For example for making ropes, custom trees or several machines.

Coloring Particles would be amazing as well.
I would love to have some yellow or blue will-o-wisps for my forest. Just hovering colored flames hovering in the swamp, graveyard or the woods... Awww so many ideas! *-*

Never going to happen. The devs rarely if ever listen to the community. 

 

What you said would be a cool addition, but I don't see it being added.

Gosh !

Why be so negative Valexia, they just gave us a cool editor.

In time, I'm sure they read our wishes, but there are so many...

Because she is right. We've been plagued by a bug that makes our heads turn and twists like we had no spine for a year now. There have been multiple requests to disable the awful headtracking, fix the ghost bug and etc. (Is ghost bug still a thing?) It has never been fixed, none of these. If they just disabled the bloody headtracking it would've been a problem solver all along, it's awful, looks bad and makes things awkward when you stare at someone you don't even want to look at. Like when I look at Sagry although I don't really want to.

 

And your idea sounds pretty cool, no object for the light source would be pretty cool, dimming and brightening it does sound amazing and would be a nice feature to see. Shame lights are kind of not needed since the moon goes through the walls and so on. Just sayin'. Definietly a thing that could at least be considered to be added I believe.

 

Pls add and fix Sauron moon

I don't want to be negative nor do I think I really am. I'm just stating facts. The community is never listened to. Out of all the various posts about suggestions and ideas to the devs, how many have actually been implemented into the game?

And it's not because they're all shit Some are but there are some really good ones that I personally would love to be added. But barely any if at all have been added. I don't even remember the last time the devs took advice from the community, despite there being a vast majority wanting it.

 

The editor is cool. I give them that. But this is a sex game at the end of the day, and there hasn't been new sex poses for ages. And updates are like, every 3 months if we're lucky. But this is best to be saved for another topic.

It would be nice if the room when on night wasn't as bright as it would help a lot with the overall look when building at night.

I understand what you're saying Valexia, but they are not mutually exclusive unless your only interest is in the poses. I love making scenes for my friends and I to use those poses in, for us, it has allowed a lot more intimacy through using these locales which are now possible to make with the world builder.

I do agree with you in that I would rather them spend the time adding in features everyone will benefit from, but I didn't think it a big request, though I don't really have any idea of the actual work involved, it may be something very easy(a couple of hours) to add to their next update, and I thought it important enough to make them aware of something that might possibly be easy to fix, but make a huge difference for people building these beautiful locales.

Don't get me wrong. I love the editor and think it's an amazing addition and I appreciate the devs making and adding it into the game. I am just asking for a little more too, since we wait so long for every update.

I don't think it's a big request either and seems fairly simple to implement into the game. I just don't see them taking your suggestion, unfortunately.
