improvements/question

Post by blueberry » Mon Jul 21, 2008 12:48 pm

- it would be nice to have bigger maps instead of the mini-maps. also map-walking would be a very good feature.

the new caves are too big to remember all the paths. a bigger map could solve this problem.

- Additionally it would be very useful to implement a feature of removing items from the shortcut bar.

- Will Fate's simple magic system be implemented, and if yes, when?

Regards

A zooming capability would be nice.

Do you mean controlling your character using the minimap?

Having minimaps for them will help.

The new caves maps could also use a bigger minimap window ;)

And in order to zoom the minimaps, we would have to make all of the minimaps over again, using svg format. This was talked about before I think.

On the subject of minimaps, when there are more than one entity sharing the same map (e.g. interior rooms or new_27-1), it would be nice if the minimaps were drawn offset, so that the active part fills the frame.

On new_27-1, for example, if you are in the eastern-most cavern, you won't appear on the minimap, as you will be too far to the right.

yes. IMO it is very useful for big maps like the new caves.

why not just make the map bigger? the minimaps are too small IMO. Also marks for entrances/exits on the map would improve gameplay.

- A private chat would be really useful (you would right click on someone and commence a private chat)
The private chat should appear as a tab on top of the default chat, and you would click on the tab - thus transforming the default chat into the private chat (and there would be a tab for default chat too!)
You would still have to type "Enter" before typing what you would want to say; however it would go directly into the private chat. Also, as a heads up to the person you are messaging, your text should be seen at the top of their screen.

- I'm not sure about this, but is there a friends list?
If not, there should be one.
