Dump Saloon Use Slot For 24 hour Featured Build


THX
 Share

Recommended Posts

Since Saloon, Fresco, 3DX Club are all dead places, why not make one or three into a "Property of the Day" open for 24 hours regardless of user being online the entire time?

Since we can guess Gizmo or staff wouldn't want to add and change places everyday, there would need to be some way to upload the world file along with a fair system where those wanting to post their property had a chance , but would go back into a queue at the back of the line of others who hadn't  yet so no one person can abuse the feature?

If it's a bit of work for Gizmo to create the coding for, then why not an Xgold host charge to make it worth his while? Not sure of what amount to charge, but it can't be too little there is a easy reason to try and abuse it, but not too much no one wants to pay it.

The dead 3DX places could be better repurposed.

I love the idea of featured rooms but see it as being a technical nightmare and making it fair to builders even worse.

Too many things already rely on voting which gets skewed by those with a lot of friends or alts.  
THX's suggestion of having people apply to be featured might be workable, especially with his suggestion of having people already featured moved to the bottom of the list.  A lot of detail would need to be worked out.  People use alts all the time and might still game the system having multiple alts vying for their rooms.

I agree that the Saloon is essentially a dead place.  I see one or two people in there at any given time so maybe it could be re-purposed but there are other possible ways to present featured rooms as well like putting a Featured Room title at the top of the room list above or just below any rooms people pay gold to boost.

But if someone were to be choosing a room to feature then what criteria would they choose by?  Rooms that are just cool and people should see them for their creativity?  Rooms that tend to draw people in for game related play? 
I would lean toward showcasing creativity as those rooms do not tend to draw in large numbers of people for any length of time but they do inspire others to create their own and benefits everyone.
Rooms that already draw in crowds are already getting exposure so the benefit is not as great featuring them, especially since a lot of the draw to a room is the people running or DJing the room and the idea as proposed might not lend well to these for 24 hour or more features.

Just my somewhat unorganized thoughts.  I love the general idea and am interested in seeing how people think it should be employed if considered by the Devs.

Ancient RLC has a system so it could be done. You would pick an available date from a calendar, usually books several weeks in the future, add a short description, pick a room type ,(club, sex, etc) from a drop down list upload an image for the room, get approval, and on your day it is open for 24 hours. So it can be done. 

 

With how slow development is here currently, I doubt such a thing would ever occur soon. Unfortunitly, but it would be kewl.

 

They could dump all but the top three 3DX places and feature more than one - maybe 4 a day. And if they don't have anything booked if that many, the could fallback to the default places.

I know where you are going with this idea and I think it is actually a very good one.  I have zero idea about any of the technicalities of working a place like this but if not replacing current locales then perhaps an 'island of the day'. I think it would actually do a lot to create a community feel if the owner of the featured spot put in a little effort.   I truly believe that is what this virtual world needs most. More so than any new things being added to it.  You know as well I THX that the friends and community are about the only thing keeping RLC going right now.  3DX would benefit greatly from the same type of atmosphere.

I like the idea of adding a feautured room on daily basis but I can't understand what it has to do with removing a saloon. is it some hard limit of number of locations opened by devs or why? Saloon maybe unpopular but nice location. I don't understand what the point in removing it. 

Exactly. Why must one be removed to add one? Or two? Or 10?

The lake will be a great addition to the public map list

Permission will be needed to use the Lake as featured room.  The one currently in use is not even the original so it has seen changes to it. The original was posted to share and then removed it so that it would not be shared.  In fact the last one to make changes gave it to someone with the promise it would never be shared and then did. My suggestion is for the devs to track down the artist of the original and ask her first.

It doesn't HAVE to be removed nescesarily, but there is only so much space in the existing GI menu window and it just seemed logical to me to repurpose it since the Saloon has never been a big attraction. There is a finite amount of room for additional new places. (I'd guess 16 max?) if you look at the current size of the 3dx graphics laid out in a circular manner, changed to to in a grid like layout?? I"m sure they could rework it entirely if they wanted a new layout, I was just basing this on the existing UI.

I''d think any slot with a featured room would need a default property for when a featured property isn't running.. I guess in theory, you could have several featured rooms running at once. Perhaps the benefit of that is less likelyhood of any one person dominating the feature. 

As for dominating the feature, it's one reason I like an Xgold cost attached to it as an additional anti abuse safety mechanism. Maybe the similar cost of a divorce (5000 Xgold)?

Just so i understand this correctly....  you guys who have repeatedly said the devs are lazy and never add much think they would spend time daily adding a new room to public rooms.  If im not mistaken that would mean an update everytime a new room became a public room.  

Yeah, that will happen (NOT)

 

It's best to actually read and understand a thread before commenting.

oh i understood it, sorry if you cant understand sarcasm. thats the odd part of starting a public thread in the forum, people are going to respond positively and negatively.  Such is the nature of the beast.

 

 

 

It's obvious you didn't understand , or read.  Your concern about Dev involvement on a daily level was addressed.

I suggest reading the topic before commenting. It leads to much more educated opinions.

silly dice games

Actually a lot of people were asking for minigames. And if devs are not willing to do so, they could at least add a dice command that we already had in Rochi's dll so we can do our own games in chat. I don't think that adding a simple chat command is a lot of work and will delay other stuff much.

Alot in forums does not equate to alot in game.  The forums are actually a very small percentage of the overall game community.  

Its sort of like twitter, the bulk of the people talk like its what the overall game community wants but in reality its a small section of it.  I liken it to twitter because this line holds true for both..... "80 percent of the posts are made by 20 percent of the community".

In a nutshell what i am saying is if 20 people in forums want a dice game, thats not a majority  of players in the game, thats just most of the folks doing all the talking in forums which is most likely why it was ignored as a feature.  

I have spoken on how silly i think the idea is so wont take it off topic any longer.  If nothing else if gives you folks something to discuss, its not like its ever going to be put in game.   Have fun and good luck with it, you will need it 

We both have no idea what majority of people in game want. We can only guess, basing our opinion on the people we know and talked with about this stuff.

And adding a dice chat command is a tiny amount of work and it's worth it even if only 5% of players want it. Hell, even if 1%. I mean it's just a chat command that generates a random number, this shit can be done by school student on their first month of learning coding. It's not some big thing.

One other thing, if someone wants to play dice, go play dice.  What does dice have to do with a sex game.  In my view its silly at best and a waste of time.  

There is a reason why 90 percent of the suggestions here are never put in game, most are not needed or has nothing to do with the game.

As ive said 100 times for you folks wanting to turn 3dx into the sims 5....  if you want the sims, go play the sims.

That is all 

 

 

What you say, with all due respect makes absolutely no sense.

First of all, like any social platform as this one, even if the game is a "sex game" It's not a single player sex game at all. People do interact, talk and dance together, play music and generally spend time together. So there is every reason to include all sort of minigames and such which enhances the social interactions people are having, giving them even more options to spend time with. You make no sense saying, it's a sex game, why should you play dice in it. In that case why should you dance in it? why should you have music in it? why should you be able to walk around freely, while you could just pick a name from a list of people and fuck them. Think again mate.

-"There is a reason why 90 percent of the suggestions here are never put in game, most are not needed or has nothing to do with the game." Yes there is a reason but not what you are coming up with at all. The reason being mostly the garbage management and the lazy dev team.

So Think before you speak. At least a bit....

I want to play dice games in 3dxchat with my 3dxchat friends, not just "play dice". 

I also want to use dice commands in some RPs. And not me alone.

It will take tiny amount of time. Yeah, complex mini games can take a lot of time to make, but simple /roll or /dice chat command – not at all.

if they are so bad, dont pay to play.

This part is stupid also. It's like saying, if you subscribe to something you should be happy about everything even if it's trash.

This is the usual weak excuses coming from apologists such as yourself saying that everything is fine, and if it sucks it's the paying customers fault :))

Listen to yourself dude. 

It is not how it works. Far from it. Yes we have an agreement through a service I'm paying for. And it is totaly withing my rights to point out things I don't agree with and even call out their bullshit as a paying customer. Maybe you are some sort of a communist thinking that everybody should sing the same song and be happy if they are here. Long live the president!

Yes I ask for minigames. I ask for dice games also in a porn game. I ask for things I want to see in the game. And I call out the bullshit they do at times. You have a problem with that? You are not trying to lecture people around here, are you? Many things people are asking here is very reasonable in my opinion and you don't get to talk down on them. Saying that they should be jumping around of joy or unsubscribe

Nah, far too long winded for my taste but thanks for the advice.  Its a terrible idea in my view. 

Time better served fixing glitches and such. Not to mention its a waste of time and resorces for an idea most really wouldnt care about.  

If you asked most people playing im sure the idea would be way down on the list of things they want in game, just like shops and i dont know, silly dice games .

Thats why its a good thing i speak up for those who cant, i am a man of the people, defender of the average joe and a modern day hero.  No need to thank me, i am a people person.

I think that about covers it, time for bed.
