Room List Is Getting Too Long Need Catagories


Recommended Posts

With the growing number of rooms it has become very cumbersome to tell someone to meet at X and for them to easily find it in the list.

Devs, the rooms list needs a serious rework: 

- Rooms with Zero in them should all go to bottom of list or to a page 2 to reduce clutter.

- Need some way to filter, search, or categorize rooms by type.

-3DX created properties take up space that could be converted to buttons that sort the current list by catagories or some type of filter area. Just add them to the room list like all others and use that space for filtering.

To skip from the top to the bottom may take 3-5 seconds but to actually read through each one to find the one you want takes wayyy longer.

And the number of times I read through the list (94 rooms open right now) to find the one I want, only to get to the bottom without seeing it and having to start right from the top again.....  ok that might just be me but it's unnecessarily frustrating nonetheless and could and should be made easier with some sort of filter system.

Here's hoping.

Search feature is very much needed. 

Search and categories would be best scenario.

When you open your room to public and create the name, you pick a catagory tag in addition.

Catagories:

Top 40 (shows the 40 most populous rooms regardless of where they are on the current raw list. Including 3DX properties like Beach, Love Island, etc.)

Clubs (Dance, Rock, Country, EDM, etc.)

Adult(sex) (Strip Clubs, sex Clubs, Porn Theaters, etc)

Themed (Beaches, Resorts, Parks, Places, Movie Themes etc.)

Special Interest (Games, Art Galleries, etc.)

Fantasy (Roleplay, Fairy, Adventure, etc.)

And above it all a search bar. 

Friend: Where you at?"

Me: "Xixi's room."

Friend: *Search Xixi.  "There it is, got it. Ty."

Again we see something that keeps getting asked for in these forums. Categorising the room list has been asked for many times before and I agree is something that is really needed. Not only will it make it easier to find what you are looking for but will also make it so we don't have to see rooms like rape rooms show in the list when we are just trying to find a good dance room to go to.

Everyone is entitled to play the game the way they want but seeing loads of rooms listed for things I find off putting was always a bit of a turn off for me. Likely it is the same for people who were looking for those rooms having to scroll past dance and party rooms.

Categorising the rooms list would not be hard to do.

like come on its not so hard to use that mouse wheel to scroll haha 

i mean how long it will take to scroll all rooms ? like 3 seconds ? 5 seconds ? 

not that i care  but its 3-4 seconds to scroll the whole list 

What is a reason to Just scroll? People need to find their things and it can get a way more that 3-4 sec and hurt eyes.

Maybe I am just crazy (well duh!), but with growth in the game, I can envision a year from now having 200+ open rooms to scroll through.  This would be a nice feature to aid in my search for a particular place and experience I am desiring that day.  I am wanting to get into a room and play.  This helps getting me there faster.

search by name... yes please
color codes for rooms opened by friends... yes double please
favoriting hosts and have their rooms color coded... yes triple x please
 

as for categories... I like the suggestion. But to be a tad pragmatic I need to ask  some questions.

who will determine the category of the room?
the host?
if so what happens a room fits more than one category?
can we pick more than one category for the room?
then what's stopping me from ticking all categories for my room and have it appear on every list? and once I do this genius idea, what's stopping everyone from doing it and effectively turning every category list into all list?

but yeah... seriously in light of the rising popularity of the game and the fact that a lot want to have a room of their own opened.
the simple scroll down and squint till you find what you like list is not going to cut it anymore. I believe the whole mechanic (including room boosting, room sorting... etc) needs a redesign from the ground up, not just some fixes to make it work.
but we understand that resources are limited and that Cyberpunk is out...

Hey Anaganda, a pragmatic and good question.

Host would pick only one tag cause that's all they could. It's a system that works on many platforms. I am not arguing to change the current raw list and how it is setup which I doubt they would since I bet it generates XGold sales, just a quick way of filtering what we have. I would rather see a total rework of the listing system that would include the ability to add short descriptions,options like you alluded too, etc, but I am trying to stay pragmatic to what they may actually consider.

I can hear your question already. "What is to stop a host from mislabeling their room because they think it will do better in another catagory?" Short answer, nothing other than human self interest. 

Someone labeling a sex room as a dance room would be missing those sorting for a sex room and those interested in dance rooms would not be interested in sex rooms and would ignore it. Human self interest.

*PS Top 40 would never be a catagory to be selected as a tag. It would be based solely on population only and would include all rooms.

I don't expect them to adopt my suggestion. It's just one solution I know would work based on their own system.

However, the problem of listing length remains and needs solved as 3DX grows and the list of rooms grows also. It is far too cumbersome as it is.

For category filtering:

  • Allow the host assign a category, if they so wish.
  • To avoid the genius idea, only a single category could be assigned.
  • This way I can filter on a category, but can still see a room on the full list, if category wasn't selected by the host.

 

See my thoughts above. 🙂

maybe we could make it search by tag... and person can have like up to two tags... so let's say someone who has a chill/sex room, wouldn't be forced to be categorized among cold/sluts/put your wiwi in any hole rooms.
and that also would allow person who's looking for a specific thing to maybe be able to find it in the tag search... for example, swinging room... or specific type of music rooms... etc

The tag idea is a good one, @Anaganda.  I doubt 'put your wiwi in any hole' tag will ever be a part of my search/filter, but that is just me. 😉

Certainly, there are a number of ways it could be done.

I personally like using a graphic to click on than a search. Not that you can't have both like most places do, but they search by words in titles usually. So, if I was searching by search bar and put in bathouse or Erotic, your place would appear along with any others using those words.  If you taged it under say Sex, it would come up in the quick sex list of all rooms under a sex Icon.

If it was to argue for any one particular way, I'd convert the 3DX property icons into graphical categories that one click sorts the raw list into that buttons catagory. 

Think in terms of movies. There is Action, Comedy, Dance, Musicals etc. If I want an Action movie, there is a wide latitude of Action movies. I want a list of only Action movies. I want a list of action movies, but they could be low budget crapoy ones too. If I type porn I want porn, but I could get everything from big budget pron to "Skanky Joe Does Dead Sheep Vol. 7."

How about the possibility to have some kind of "bio" for the rooms? When you click on the bio icon in the room list, a window opens just like an avi bio with pictures of the room and description what it is about.
I know it would use server space, but it would help to get an idea about the room.

This is a needed feature regardless of how they would do the sorting/searching.

And as for the sorting/searching, no matter what you do with it, there will always be something that doesnt fit, or something else not right, but you cant think that way or nothing ever gets done. They just need to find a way to improve it without breaking something. I think categories would be the easiest solution that achieves the goal in more than one way, firstly it will shorten the list sizes a lot, with that in itself making it easier to find rooms as well as being in its own category. 

This is a bit off topic and just musing really, A possible side effect of categories as certain ones will be a lot more popular than others, is it will make some question themselves and ask why am I opening a room. While that question has always been there, I feel it would be more telling with categories in place.

devs dont do it so far cause they win more money from room wars lol 

its in devs interest ppl buy xgold and spend it to top their room to be seen putting shorting etc stuff that will help ppl view rooms will beat a large % of why ppl would need to top ...

So unless you give an alternative suggestion that will not make devs lose xgold buyers i find it hard to see it change 

Dont get me wrong but someone would have to bring a proposal of that room shorting and same time devs wont lose xgold buyers :) 

as a player ofc a toom shorting is great its QOF from buisness view its a loss so ur proposal have to bring the same amount of money to the table in order for devs to like it ...

im guessing ...

a solution is players being able to pay to top their room and be seen infront of every tab /category u name it so they keep buying xgold to do what they did and ofc devs dont lose

Well if every category will have it's own list – for example if it is 10 categories – it will be 10 rooms boosting in the same time. Devs can make two different boosts – 300 xgold to boost room in general room list (the one we have now) and 100 xgold to boost room in one of it's categories lists. I think devs will have even more money this way.

Search option indeed going to cut the xgold spending to some degree – less people will be searching through the list and more will just search for rooms they know. But hey... It will make many users much happier making their game experience smoother. Keeping your clients happy important for business as well.

yes u could have 10 boosts but none of them will be in general ^^ so its kinda pointless to boost ur room in a category that isnt directly visible by everyone  and lets not forget 1 category might have 5-6 rooms so why spend xgold ?

i mean so far room competitions favors devs xgold spend wise if u ruin that competition even a lil means damage for the devs ...lemme be clear categories or no categories im cool ..what i say here is i try ..well i dont try it comes natural hehe to think the buisness aspect ....3 years now most of my proposals here  tried to give to players and same time be of benefit to the devs to have a chance implemented ...

So we can have the categories u all mention but devs should create a seperate window that will host boosts ^^ and will be visible to everyone ..in the UI kinda ish i dont know maybe a pop up window whenever someone boosts and u could potentialy click in that pop window to visit the room ..i havent gave much thought on this so i cant realy suggest a way to balance their xgold loss from categories and maintain same feeling for boosters and not make them back out ..its tricky hehe.

i think devs should do those categories and i also think they have to also make the boosting more visible to attract boosters =more money for devs potentialy  

 

Da fk Alivia why u care about devs ...income ..well you see i can easily relate you know get in that position and point of view

so i always believed that in order to make devs to implement something that something must be of gain for them ...if its a loss why do it ..

would u invest time and money in a loss ? i personaly wouldnt i would invest time an money in something i believe that will create profit  since its a buisness we talking aout ....

 

Ps To balance xgold spending devs could create like weekly status /icon over ur avatar name i dont know funny smilleys whatever that you can purchuase with xgold maybe 1 time forever or weekly monthly ...imagine manyy of them many cool icons smilleys dj related stuff to chose and potentialy buy if u want  ...and dont forget more drinks with xgold more stuff in game via xgold boosters could buy even ..hmm it is the name i forget well in a game u had to buy a item to be able to chat in a specific chat so u could buy wc ad in our case lol i mean there are zillion ideas to make ppl spend some xgold in X something 

BUT u need to sit down and care and work :)

I would love to see a short bio/description of every room too. It would only enhance the sorting. Along with a small picture next to the room you could upload a .jpg or .png like we can in the profile that expands larger when you click on it. It would address the Ad situation since you could create a graphics Ad in front of your room.

The current raw list will always be a motive to boost your room in because it is the first thing you see. It's like a billboard as you are driving by. It will always catch your attention.  

If they are concerned categories will cut into room boosts, they could limit categories to top Ten and a overall Top 20. Plenty of motive to still boost your room. Most people want the number one spot even more on a short list.  Plus a boast in a category would be a boost in the raw list to the top at the same time, so boost wars would still continue if not even more.

They could limit the view area in top 20 to just 10 with the need to scroll down to see the other 10. Still faster to sort busiest rooms and motive enough to want to bump your room to top on raw list to be in the top 10 of the Top 10 list. Also, you're in three places now (raw list, Top 20 and the category you selected to be in.

There are numerous other features that could require Xgold also. Like featured Room of the hour designation for 3000 gold etc. But no sense in going crazy with features as the more you think of and want, the longer the coding process and complexity and less likely ANYTHING may be done.

whatever they choose, something needs done.
