One suggestion for in game storyline events.

I would create a theatre in every Bevin, public and private, where users would be able to watch (after an event) what went on at a storyline event.

The screen would be high definition and big enough for immersion feelings.

Because of time zone differences, anyone who would have missed an event would so be able to view it as many times as wanted and be able to keep up with the story directly from the game.

With time passing by, there would be a menu, giving access to older movies.

And yes, I would include an interface for zooming in, or to unable a "pause" to be able to see fast chat lines or time to get a second cup of coffee.
:lol:

I think this is a good idea, but would take a lot of work for cyan, that they just cant keep up with right now.

Not if someone present downloaded CamStudio and just recorded the action. You wouldn't be able to zoom in, but you'd get to watch the event unfold.

This could either be part of a movie theater or a Guild of Journalists.

Yep shimmerillion, but I guess it would be a too simple of an idea.

And you well know how simplicity is not very well received these days. :roll:

The middle men do not want to loose their jobs and their seemingly "notariaty/importance" in the game. :wink:

Oh well, maybe I'll join the new Guild of Messengers and "tape" events for others to watch.

:P

Ive always wanted a room in the city, where when we open the door, it links us "inside" , which is a movie theatre.

And ...of course, it would probably create a "Joel and the 'Bots" type of situation!

I vote for the first movie: "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians"

:lol:

I would vote for the "BabyBell" brown nose reindeer's movie. ( because he was following Rudold too close)

Merçi and welcome Annick.

I can very well imagine neighbors making it a special event, every month, for a big movie party in their hood.
:lol: 8) :lol:

The DRC visitors would not be run over this way.

They could prepare a video in a private hood, with good people asking questions in an orderly manner as opposed to what we experience when they show up in a public instance.

:idea: - I am also dreaming of a day in the future when Cyan would create a theatre, on the far wall of the cavern, with many projection rooms and us having to use a D'ni speedboat(s) to get there.

Thank you all for your support about this idea.

We just might succeed in waking one or two of them,
that have been sleeping on the "sleeping mode key" for too long.

Good idea Artic. :D

French and Europeans players are agree. That made a long time that Europeans players would like the realization of this project, for better following the storyline and the meeting with the members of the DRC (usually being held at rather late hours in Europe :( ).

Yes ArthDS, I am pretty sure that a good 75% of the players would
love this option.

And those that would heve seen the event in the game would also be able
to view it again and again, specially if a remote control (télécommande in french), with a few features,
is added for easier viewing. :mrgreen:

Question: Where are all the internationnal players hiding ? :cry:
This idea in mainly for you. :wink:

Something funny from a special source ???? :lol: :wink:

Arctic_Wagon, I'll add my enthusiasm to the chorus of "that's a great idea!"

One of the major frustrations for many right now seems to be the lack of "in-cavern" information. Being able to view or review important events in cavern on a regular basis would benefit all explorers.

I don't get excited about a DRC message on my KI, but I would be excited about watching events unfold that I've missed because of surface obligations.

I hope Cyan takes note of this. It would be a FANTASTIC feature!

:D
