Personally I would like to see extensive customization of homes. I should be able to spend a lot of time organizing and designing my house. Wallpaper, floor titles, chairs, couches, curtains or blinds for my circle or square windows, lamps, beds, tubs, a piano, chandler, the works!
In an older topic, someone mentioned being allowed to change the way the outside of your home looks. For example people could have tree houses, shell houses, a castle, a cloud home, an ant hill sort of home, a homey looking home, etc. With all that stuff and more, house events would be amazing.
I like EbonyPiano's idea of a mermaid race. The idea is only as silly as making a human with wings in a game. Zelda has Zora's and they can walk on land, so they could make a underwater race that can walk on land. Like the Turga's resemble lions, and the Muris resemble smaller creatures like mice, small foxes and rabbits, they could make the underwater race resemble fish or reptiles. Vibrant colors, scales, gills, etc. This picture I found is a good example
. Notice the colors, mainly of the skin. Also take note of the fact she has legs and a tail, notice too the body art. All without losing the human look like EE did with the frog race. Nothing wrong with frogs, but human like is better for this game. If they are not going to allow customization of the tails, it would be better to give the mermaid race either a long snake/eel like tail that moves around slowly as if in water. I only say this b/c a fish tail might look weird and stiff. An eel/snake tail can easily flow as if in water making it look better and not so awkward. Their mounts would be able to travel on land and water.
Everyone's customization ideas sound nice, I would love to have the BGR scale. It really helps make your character different from others when you have the freedom to pick whatever color you want. Aqua green hair with just the right amount of blue to make it not look too green. Hair highlights, two different hair colors, and Hetro eyes would be nice. Maybe they can put it into some of the in game hair dyes later down the line? (if they have any)
I agree that it would be nice if tails were customizable. For turgas they should be able to have those long puffy fox tails, or a wolf tail. Yes I know they are cats! But at least allow them to have the different types of tails found on house cats. Like the Persians fluffy tail. For muris, a small fox tail or bunny tail would be nice.
Someone mentioned alternate body types for male turga. It seems to be high in demand. o.o
They should have house events. Best looking house wins...I don't know, the title best house in Orta, a trophy to put in the trophy cabinet, furniture? Anything is good as a reward in this case.
Fishing contest! Biggest fish caught or the most worthless item ever caught event. Either one would be fun. lol
Some trivia games would be fun as well. Even a word jumble or name that emote event could work.
Getting a title for exploring certain areas would be nice.
What notIyeru said about adding more complex jumping puzzles. I second this motion. Also, lol to the "patient as a saint" title.
I also second notIyeru Fashion event.
-bounces up and down- I really like these posts they're so fun if people don't start agruments with others on they're own personal thoughts.^^ Still first off I just sooo like some of your guyz ides.Like the hair thing Omg yes I so didn't get why Humans had to have another shade of Blue hair and not Black when Black is a more Common color used by players was like -shrugs- o.o Maybe they'll have Hair Dye or something.The Mermaids I don't really see as playable Charaters but if they where, I wouldn't be against it I think haveing Fins in the water and Fishy scale legs on land would be kinda neat.^^ As for the Muris thing I don't really see, I personally liked that they made them more Mouse like seeing that they are in fact Mice I never got why they where trying to turn them into foxes and bunnies in the frist place was like WHY??....
Saki you should have been standing there with the development team during the planning phase.
I believe the Muris have fox and rabbit ears b/c they are supposed to be the smaller cute creatures. Had they made customizable tails, the look would have really been pulled off though.
I think the channels are very important to them since if the game lags due to over crowded servers they would lose ppl and that is bad.
I like your idea for crops, I hope they make us have to work more when it comes to crops too. Having to take care of the animals and plants in order to get a reward is a great idea. Many people would definitely pay good gold to avoid having to care for an animal and the crop. That makes farming a very profitable business to we the farmers. lol
Having animals that are mistreated run away would be a plus (or be annoying?), and having a animal that is well cared for reward you with maybe dbl amount of items would be nice too. Same for plants, neglected plants die and well cared for ones produce. (Pretty much what Saki was saying)
I also like the weather idea.
They can have the weather random and on the calender it shows us the weather schedule. Seasons can change weekly, allowing for all 4 season to pass in one month. More rain during the spring season (first week), and more wind and snow during the last week of the month winter. Or they can do the season monthly like you already said.
They should also have places you can reach only by going a certain time of day, like some places you can only reach during low tide or whatever. (bad example since we can swim, but you get the point.)
For couples, I would say that having to agree to merge the home is a good idea. An invite system would be nice, however if we never see such a thing, you could just send a pm to ppl in advance as an invite. The ability to mass PM would be nice in this game! That is where those guilds claiming to be family like come in though. They would have to accept the invite and come to your parties and events.
