[RP] A ROLEPLAYING WISHLIST


217 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I actually enjoy that you can't run around in your underwear. Much as it does for us IRL, the underwear worn under your clothes are seen as like a change in tights and stockings. So you can see the ones that are with the stockings, if you wear things that show tights. Otherwise other people can see it in houses if you toggle it off. I am really enjoying that this game is a touch more modest than others. 

Oh, I guess I'm just not into modesty. Really wanted to get naked and run around in circles all day :( 

All the RP requests are about making things more realistic and opening more windows for RP. Making lingerie/swimsuit visible and wearable more places also opens windows for more RP and more realistic in terms of swimming or being near beaches.

Full support with this entire thread but especially OP.  We need to be allowed to type a LOT more in the chat box, and have at least custom emotes via /e.  I'm sure these two features would be a quick hotfix away too!

All my support is behind this - as an RPer and a rather veteran mmo player - I am shocked this game doesn't have these features, especially since this is like the perfect sandbox for RPers

Quite honestly, I would not like to have a separate RP Server. Out of my circle of friends I'm almost the only one (specifically, only one other pal of mien is into it) to enjoy RPing. And since I don't have all the time of the world on my hands I can't really afford to simultaneously have a RP and non-RP character. I'm pretty sure I am not the only one with this kind of issue/time constraint.

 

Why not have a dedicated RP Channel or use something like the Guest System that GW2 uses? We wouldn't be able to mash all rp'ers into one server due to language restrictions anyway. It'd be quite the mumbo-jumbo to have people rp in all kinds of languages in one place, now wouldn't it?

 

Aside from that: +1

+1 for this thread! Most of these things are definitely needed!

And damn, costumes are character bound? I totally thought they'd be account bound for that price jfc.

+1 To this! And add, unless it's already a thing in the game and I've missed it, the ability to lock the doors of your house! Unless they're friends, I don't want them popping in on me while I'm RPing and griefing/trolling.

Great post! 
But i have to say i really like the genderlock, as long as they make some kind of counterparts like Warrior and Valkyrie. If they do like that for every class i think it's better then just be able to choose gender.

Seriously. Try making a fat or curvy witch. I dare you.

ok ok u right! , i tried to make a old female character but seems impossible ... the oldest woman i able to made is a 18 yo valkyrie , others are all children , but otherwise a old ugly witch ? why a witch should be old ? he can make something to stay young  , but if the witch is young why the wizard needs to stay old ?  a lot of asia fanservice here that's the problem ... strange to not see boobs shake

Age isn't that important to me personally. I'd like to make her look like she's 20 and not 14, but I can deal with her face being child-like. What really kills Witch for me is her body. I can't make her curvier. Her "Build" slider makes her more muscular, so her chest and arms are wider and bigger, but I can't manipulate her hips, thighs, calves, stomach or butt to the extent that'd make her body look not-pre-puberty. She looks super weird with big boobs and no fat anywhere else.

+1 for all except 10 for the reason below:
10. Agreed with one exception: the gender lock. Most classes, though not all, has a male-female counterpart, and I've said this on a few other threads, that would just be a lot of work for devs to make a character f/m model with unique animations for each as they did many of the characters. Ex: Ranger has thigh physics, witch? Er...Not so much. As long as they just make the class-counterpart to the character, it would reduce the cost, make actions appear more unique, and we get more content rather than waiting ages for Daum to make a m/f equivalent for every single class ;v; 

Also as a suggestion, maybe some more parkour moves, like when someone goes through a window and all. And (though I disliked ESO, I did like this thing) stealing would be cool. On ESO, you were only allowed to steal from NPCs, so maybe we could do that too? Or even from other people *www* (too cruel probs ;v;)

Thank you, Faine, for publishing yet another very important thread with key features the RP community needs! I agree with your list. The following is a slight re-formatting:

Essential Issues (Easy to implement, must have for RP)
These issues are essential because they all pertain to the communication, the very core of RP

- Custom emotes: /e.
- Improved chatbox length.
- Custom chat channels or social circles. (think Linkshells of FFXIV)
- RP Channel (I don't think the entire community will fit one channel) / Server
- Improved character and guild name limits.


Quality of Life

- Walk Toggle
- Campfires and tents
- Sitting anywhere *


Systemic, Long-Term Issues

- Remove gender and race locking
- Reduce cash shop prices, increase costume diversity and quantity
- Remove/adjust randomness from the dye system
- Numerous character creation adjustments


* Another important aspect that is absent is the ability to sit on the ground (unless I missed it) and adjusted sitting posture for some classes (fix hovering!). I really like that I can lean against anything or sit on an edge, but why can't I just sit on the ground if I want to?! This is especially important for spontaneous RP somewhere in the world, rather than a tavern for instance.

Thank you once again, Faine. :)  Here's some more things that would improve quality of life for the roleplayer:

1. Many chairs in the open world can't be sat in because they are too close to a table. I don't know how art works in a game. Is it possible to pull some of those chairs away from tables, specifically in taverns? Or at least in future updates, keep the chairs pulled back from tables.

2. Font in the chat box needs to be made bigger without making the UI bigger. Text is a very important tool to a roleplayer. The ability to resize the font of text would reduce eye strain. Currently, the only way to make font bigger is by maximizing the UI size, which makes everything else big on the screen, too. 

3. Add a speech bubble length slider. Chat bubbles currently only stay on the screen 3 seconds. That's not enough time to read, and negates the use of them. Chat bubbles are a quality of life feature for many RPers in player chat-heavy environments, such as large community events. Chat bubbles allow slower readers to keep up with roleplay in text-heavy environments. It also reduces eye strain when one doesn't have to read everything in the chat box and can just focus on those they are roleplaying around.

Though I'd love to add to the list the ability to put regular armor into the costume slot. It would allow for so much more flexibility in how you end up looking in game, instead of forcing everyone into 1-2 armor sets and what ever costumes are available. And there would be no real downside.
