Finding of parts needed to create items

Post by dadaemon » Wed Apr 20, 2005 2:18 pm

The current way of finding items is through the killing of monsters. Yesterday I played the game Secret of Evermore. And in that game you play a boy and his dog.

This dog has the "power" to sniff out hidden items. Wouldn't it be a nice addition to have this kind of stuff in TMW.

Maybe you could have a skill that will allow your character to search for stuff in the surroundings. When you are in a cave you can find gems. In a forrest you can find berries. Or in the dessert you could find fresh water. (Probably you could only find these items near a place with those stuff. Water near an oasis etc.)

it's an interesting idea. I think it might work. Let's see what everyone else has to say.
The Mana World System Coordinator.
View the Systems
So what does the systems coordinator actually do? My job is to take your ideas for TMW and build them into working aspects of gameplay that can be implemented by the artists and programmers. If there's anything you think we can do better or differently, let me know.

i dislike the idea.. you would have to store items in the map or use sth on the server to hide items randomly..
it would work
but i dun like the idea

I also dislike the idea, in Secret Of Evermore... its an offline 1 player game, so you can basicaly abuse the sniffing like mad... on the second hand, since this is an ONLINE game.. people will most likely find a way to abuse it as well... too many items for people... even if its at a LOW % to get item, people will dedicate their computers to bot for them doing that...

You could have the skill have a chance to create an item from a list depending on the map type.

I dont really like it though.
