Transportation

Post by andromeda_welles » Sun Jul 29, 2007 3:38 am

I was wondering if anyone had thought about movement around Mana World, aside from shanks pony :-)

I was thinking that a cool idea would be to have a blimp service. Set up a couple of blimp towers, complete with tethered blimps, and have NPC's to sell tickets at a ticket stand.

Then, when the world expands and you want to have different islands or major towns, you have a system that you can use to move characters between islands etc.

To choose between the places you might want to go, have a separate map which is a sea of clouds with mountains poking up from underneath with place names. Then have a little sprite blimp move to the destination choice.

Just an idea. I'd have a go at the graphics except that I'm a lousy artist :-(

World of Warcraft already did it.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Typical. I've never played or seen it (and have no intention to do so)

Just goes to show that all the ideas in the world are already taken :-(

These aren't original, but since we're on the topic:

How about a giant catapult and landing net
Dragon Airways - complete with palanquin on the back of the dragon.
Stork airlines - a giant sling that is picked up by a giant stork flying through

They've all been done before, as have all the other teleportation-like ideas. I think that anything that gets done will have a resonance with something that has been done before :-(
