CAW (create a world) Ideas and Functional World ObjectsApril 26, 2020 at 9:46 pm
This is part two of the first part I posted ‘skyscrapers and cities pt 1x’ but these are just objects with gameplay affects and also some CAW ideas for maybe later on in the future development of Paralives. This doesn’t pertain to just cities but any world as a whole we can make,
CAW World features
This was very complicated for me to explain lol
I was thinking since we will have the CAW mode and the PAM mode, why not a mode to edit things within the world but quickly? QVM (quick view mode). It would be for things on the sidewalks or on the side of streets. Or to add in maybe some street lights to a certain street or adding in a few news stands, or parking spaces without having to load the entire CAW mode. But if you needed to go into CAW it would allow you to do so and then you’d be able to edit everything that’s in QVM.
Creating towns, cities,and neighborhoods in CAW
So to continue from the poll question above. During CAW I thought it’d be cool by being able to divide up the world into sections. So reference here in a simpler way, like sims 3, you know how you have one open world right? Well what if instead of it being named one world, you’d have the option to not only name the world itself, but go further and be able to divide/zone up different areas of a world into separate regions or even just cities/towns etc. and name them too. Another example by what I mean is say I built and titled my world New York City, now I have the option of creating ‘zones’ if you will on any part of the land by labeling/assigning them different names such as (Manhattan, Brooklyn,Long Island, etc). There’d be no limit to the amount you could create. And it wouldn’t affect the world from being open world or act as ‘seperate’ towns per say,it’d remain as one open world. But now not only do you have a world but also cute individual named towns within it you can travel within as normal. Which also would notify you that you have arrived in such town. But it’s optional you don’t have to create your world with the extra steps. Example photo below.
Now on to the other part mentioned building regions/ecosystems within one world. I know this might be far fetched but again I’m just listing out ideas here. If we are to have the ability to create multiple ecosystems within one world I think there should be an option while in CAW to decide what the weather is like, and how long the season cycles would be for each piece of land, and like above be able to also assign names to each piece of land. Example in the USA where I am it’s one country, but each state doesn’t all have the same weather even if it’s the same month and season of the year. A state like California won’t have snow and would be warmer in December than it would in Rhode Island where it’d be much colder, even though they’re all a part of the same country. This is what I hope we would be able to make something like this in CAW maybe in the future if it’s possible at all and again It’d be optional choice each time you make a new world.
Hopefully this all made a little more sense? Lol.
Functioning and Actionable Community Decorations
– Newspaper and magazine stands/machines where paras put in coins to take out magazines or newspapers.
– Being able to use public trash cans and public recycling bins to throw away things. With that being said I think it’d be cool to see para city service workers taking up the trash or cleaning here and there at certain times of the day.
– Public mailboxes to send gifts,send a letter to a para, and also pay bills.
– ATM machines where paras can withdraw money from their bank accounts to be added to their current spending account or make a transfer to add funds to another para’s bank account.
Would give paras the ability to find jobs at the flyer kiosks and put up ads if they’re a self-employed para looking for work. Paras could also put up ads if their pet is missing, wanting to adopt a pet or giving them away, post flyers for band concerts events, post ads to sell items, or list a business advertisement. Ads and flyers would come and go and have new content generated every week or day. Ads can be saved; which will then remove them completely from the flyer kiosk so two paras aren’t overlapping the same action/job.
You can click on the flyer kiosk and all the ads will appear listed as a list of headlines that can be clicked on for more information. If theres a person to contact on the ad or flyer the para can use their phone to ‘respond to ad’ or click on the ad in their inventory to respond to ad/flyer.
Electronic Information kiosks
Allow paras (players in this case lol) to see the map of the world and can be filtered to the current town they’re in (if that’s to be a thing of having a world broken up into boroughs) also. It allows you to see new lots built (that would have a yellow star next to it) and each lot around you including which lots are popular, open/closed, bus stations, etc.
If you click on a lot from the information booth the para will begin walking there or using their mode of transportation. It could also give paras wifi to their phones or portable electronic devices (again if that’s to be a feature in paralives).
Charging stations for electric cars and Gas station for other cars
Since we are going to have cars I think itd be cool (and this could be a toggle on/off feature) if some acted as electric cars with the possibility to be able to charge them after a while of use.
These stations could be used to power up the car and car repairs. It can also be used for charging a paras phones/tablets/computers (if charging electronics is to be a thing).
Multi-story Parking garages
Allowing paras to call for a cab/driver, order food, call another para, report a crime.
I think it’d be super cute if we could have those tourist items in these for sale, like tshirts or sweatshirts with the Paralives name on it for paras or hats and backpacks with the Paralives logo on them. But players could also have paras buy their own kiosks and sell what they want on the side walks in town.
Bicycle racks and rental bike stations
Where paras can buy food or drinks
Advertisments and ad stands
Can be linked to any community lot(s), so if you see a catchy ad stand you can click on the ad’s picture and it will take your para to that community lot. If its a double sided ad you will have the choice of choosing two of the locations itll be linked to. When making ad stands you can add any picture you want to the ad stand and link a lot location per photo used, but it’d have to be done in the CAW or QVM mode.
Pedestrian light posts or street lampposts:
Would be clickable and allows your para to either call another para to meet up with them, wait for the bus, hail a taxi, or call for a driver to pick them up.
Paras would be notified if the bus is on the way on their phones, maybe they could also miss the bus sometimes if they’re not waiting at the stop.
Again most of these ideas I had are just based off ideas and features if they are to appear in Paralives.
