Kelly.7019 Posted July 19, 2022 Share Posted July 19, 2022 (edited) I think something that could be expanded upon in the next xpac is player created content. Currently it is limited to the imagination of the player and limitations of the game. PoF might have been a good time to roll this concept out but as we have seen in EoD we also got another mount. Who knows what the future holds mount addition wise. Still a separate feature of a future xpac could be player created content added to the game in a more substantial way. Now what I am referring to with mounts you might ask? I’m talking about how people build mount races in their guild halls with the decoration system and in the open world with commander tags. This content could be expanded upon in a couple of ways. 1) Commander tags (or even a new tag system?) could be used to expand the tools available (number of lights) for people to define tracks. I wonder if it would be even possible instead of current lights to place gates and boosts that only people in your squad can see. To be able to better define a track course like current adventures in maps would be beneficial. 2) Create a mount racing hub system for instanced pvp content or just let the players imagination run wild in this Minecraft like space. (Minecraft is in reference to the extraordinary things people build not the pixelated infinite space, there would be limitations like current guild hall max objects I’d assume.) All things being equal players would be able to build track designs from this instanced area. Possibly having multiple maps to build upon and more of a guild hall arena system where multiple decorations are available once unlocked (or just available) verses crafting each individually. (I guess this can be debated upon but I’m thinking the artistic imagination of people’s designs is more important in a solo constructing effort then the amount of gold they have.) It wouldn’t be only mount races it could be JP races as well. Or the players imagination might come up with something else entirely in this system. I could see some kind of mass decoration or competition? space (depending on decs available) that allow anyone to visit your space without being grouped. This could also be expanded upon in a third way. 3) A housing system that not only allows for house decoration but as I was getting to a system that allows the players to create some extraordinary outside the box things. A system that you would not have to be grouped in a party to view others homes. Instead of parties maybe they’d have to be in your friends list or in one of your guilds. You could just click on their name and click “view home” or even just have a fractal like gate menu where you can select which instance to view. I know that’s thousands of people right? Well not really, it would be more like the lfg listing system to select from within a fractal gate menu. Which I guess could be a physical open world location way of selecting houses to view. We could also probably just have an additional lfg tab for this housing system. Expanding on the player housing system would be another thing for a future xpac that can bring a lot of end game content for the player. Ways in which the devs might not have imagined. You could retool scribing for the solo player and fixing its current problems (having a redo/undo button, rotation on x-y-z axis, decorating underwater to name a few things) could be amazing. People in other forum posts have talked previously on more aspects of housing so I won’t go deep on it here, but you get the idea. Bringing a player created content aspect to the next xpac might add wonderful end game content in several ways to the game that allow players to go beyond what the devs might of envisioned as well as building new communities. See comment below for examples of what i'm thinking about. Edited July 19, 2022 by Kelly.7019 2 1 9 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
