Thought about it some more...

One, I miss the message space on bios, and would pay SP for one. (yes, distractions work, but I liked those).

Two, I'd also buy a picture frame that would allow me to post alternate avatars in my bio. Visible ones, and not have to put links in the bio. I'm not sure how difficult that would be, though.

Bringin' this thread back from the dead. And rhyming while at it.

I know this has been brought up before, but I thought I'd mention it again (not because of, you know, extreme relevance to my current situation, or anything like that). I'd really love the ability to buy favor from the Hunter's Lodge while on the FailBoat. Sometimes you stock up a ton of stamina and plan to do something with it but then get yourself FailBoated out of stupidity and then you're stuck. It's kinda frustrating.

There probably ought to be a cap on how many times per NewDay you should be able to do this. Even just once would be reasonable.

Lain, you're the only one that has even mentioned avatars in this thread so I thought I'd toss my idea up like I've been told to several times. We have a lot of players that change forms frequently. I'll be using a few examples to try and get my point across clearly. Some players play things like werewolves. I want avatars chained to self labeled commands in the chat box.

For instance:
If currently, I had an avatar depicting a human, I could type in /wolf and have my avatar change to whatever I set to wolf.

This can work in so many ways. /glow for taking an average picture and giving it a Joker's glow where Story appropriate. You can set up several of the same face and put different expressions on them. /surprised, /glare, /curious, /eyes closed as the scene is written.

What seems most fair to me is to pay for 'slots'. Want two avatars? Pay for the deluxe picture frame PLUS one extra slot. This could really add some shape to what most of us come here for, Stooooryyyy.

Thoughts?

You forgot meenos, Mango. He is ALL of the examples. Razz

Seriously, though- sounds kind of nice. I don't think it'll be feasible to have such a feature add a graphic (even a glow)- graphics eat a heckuva lot more server than text, after all... but, otherwise sounds solid t'me!

Iriana, your idea kind of surprises me when I realize it's NOT on the Island already.

I was thinking about how there was talk of memberships... And I had an idea for it. Maybe. Possible rewards could be in game perks as well as SP. Boosted strength and defence. Or perhaps have access to higher percents when it comes to interest at the bank on new day. Instead of a maximum of 5%, make it go up to at least 10-25%. Or boost the capping from 100,000 to 1,000,000 at the bank. I know a lot of players would adore having an increased limit. Or perhaps a permanent stamina increase? Like the way its with the BOINC.

No no, not any graphics! Literally separate jpegs. One with normal green eyes and say, one with neon green eyes. The illusion of glowing. No extra features to avatars themselves, just the ability to have more of them and for those to change via commands "/smile" to allow for smooth, very quick changes from post to post.

I feel like it would be one of those items where newer players could point and be like 'WOAH- where'd you get that?' It's very easy to see, the artists of II would probably be buying quite a few and there are plenty of characters out there playing two separate forms frequently. I would suggest making them pricier in singles than in bundles of around four.

As far as what I would pay, this is clearly a luxury item for 'ooos' and 'ahhhs'. $12 for one, $20 for four? (I don't know how to price things probably, Gnnuh.)

My vote is also in for custom tattoos, and lowkey's (probably lowkey's) idea of pointing new players to these items a little more clearly.

I really like Mango's idea. It can be quite a hassle changing at times, and I do it quite often on some days xD Not that I have any problem doing it. But something to streamline the changes would be pretty neat. Maybe something to combine all your weapon/armor disguise, picture frames, etc into one item?


What do you get when a dragon sneezes? Out of the way.

Mango's idea would be really useful with what im currently doing with Hamlon, changing his mask in the avatar as his mood changes in scene. Its easy enough to change right now, but having a one click option to go through instead of getting to my picture frame every time I feel it necessary gets a bit tedious. Especially when im in someones place. Its something I would certainly find useful.
