means of transport

Post by aaarrr4 » Mon Oct 18, 2021 10:39 pm

1.first bus line:

how it's working
you are at one of the stops, you buy a ticket and wait for the bus.
you take a bus that you can't get off until it gets to the nearest stop.
1 bus can accommodate 12 players
the map can be seen while driving the bus
the bus should be faster than the player with the speed potion.

i can't say it's a bad idea because it easifies my travels as an archer, but this game is meant to be in a medieval theme...

Round em up and head, em out!

However, we have portals and, in Ardesia there is The Ardesia Travel Agency.

Secret passage between Ardesia and Hobbs Gold Mine really makes this close.

I would think if you need to wait for the ride and then sit on the ride while it goes to all sorts of stops that actually wouldn't be much faster.

I would add a portal between the bank and Silverwood/tarvern area though. There are all sorts of other portals and shortcuts already.

Yes, I can see a Banktown ←→ Tavern portal because of the "storage" that, for people without houses would make it easer to use.

Would probably add to the sales of "Bank Storage" as well if people could get there easier/faster.

I was wondering how to improve the bus idea.
I found something easier to add in the game.
horse riding: we have a graphic design ready, the design can be done in the same way as: digging, fishing, cutting trees.
horse speed will depend more on riding level
to use such a horse you must have it in your inventory instead of a weapon
over time, you can think of horses +1, +2, +3

potion of speed makes sense when fighting a player.

while riding a horse:
you can't fight while driving.
you have lowered resistance to damage and magic.
the horse has the same speed at level 10 as the potion of speed.


what do you think about it ?

i love the idea of riding a horse. would be great addition. but not as a tool. a horse is a companion not a tool. so instead of idea being +1 +2 +3, it would be a skill of riding. riding the horse also requiree feeding him and drinking him water. yes lord of rings had such things.

also the horse only gives +1 speed to the player, while we can never use with it speed pots. benefits of riding a horse comes with an extra backpack and cannot be attacked by mobs such as the ballista. so lets make this idea grow ;)

There is already a stable and a way to learn to ride the beasts already at important spots. It was open briefly and my acct got one lesson before it was closed. All the elements are there it just needs activated. I know compbatant isn't doing the content side of the game but so much of it is already done for him, maybe this conversation will encourage him to make it a priority to finish the stable and rideable beasts?
