faster transportation

Post by crojas » Sun Oct 19, 2008 9:44 pm

if we had faster mediums of transportation than walking the mobility of the game could improve a lot.

for example if we could ride horses or some animals to ride.
a Flying broom would be wonderful for those who likes to fly ever the land

Good idea but unfeasible because it would a) require tons of new animations and b) flying and thus ignoring collision would cause a lot of problems. (You can't change maps unless you are at the warp portal, for example).

How about using the soul menhirs as warps between towns? Possibly for a cost, and limited to the menhirs that you've already reached.

i didn't mean to to be able to fly over the trees for example, i mean flying to few cm from land and follow all roads as we can do now but riding a Flying broom.

people could get crazy with that.

if this game gets bigger transport logistics would be essential
it gets tenacious to just walk everywhere
even more with a huge map
town scrolls maybe ?
public transport to other town for a fee (cariage of some sort)
what if that old guy in the magic house started a transport business
wizards student that teleports people
potions of recall to get you to that last soul stone you used

imo walking speed is great just need someting to speed up long travels a bit eventualy
the game as it is now is kinda small these would be useless
and i prefer to know the devs are working on something cool fow now
than some thingy that may be used later or not at all as a matter of fact
but eh brainstorm happens :P

im not a programer
i cant do nor help on anything computer wise
but i have a few years creating pen and paper rpg system
ill try to help this nice lil project as much as i can
(we all want cool games on linux dont we :D)
