Hey everyone! I thought of a few ideas for space and I would like your impute on the matter. Firstly, as you know, space will have 5 different colors for trees underground water, etc, each with a different effect. So I was thinking that, the plantlife and wildlife should vary a bit more. Different flowers for silver grass that can be used to make the dyes for armor. Keep in mind that the water and surface color are two different things
Silver – Silver planets are a sort of blend. They don’t lean too much towards overworld or underground generation, it is a balance. The overworld Silver will offer fruits to feed yourself from the trees, not as efficient as apples, but more plentiful in drops. The flowers will be exotic, but there will also be the golden flower. When crafted down, it will give gold nuggets instead of dye. Silver planets are the best to make money in the universe, their overworld reflects this.
Purple – Purple planets are mainly devoid of small life on the surface. Save a few trees, purple surface really doesn’t have much in the way of plant life. Except for one exotic flower. This flower spawns rarely amongst the grass, and can be broken down into an edible medicine that can heal you. It will be like a non-renewable source of something akin to senzu beans. This will be an option mainly for evil players, and while they aren’t as effective as senzu, their time limit will be shorter. The trees also drop a strange fruit that poisons you but still feeds you. It may be a component in crafting a better medicine with that flower.
Lime Green – Whilst the underground of Lime Green planets is underwhelming, save for the ancient bones of warriors long dead, a lime-green overworld on a planet means it is lush with life. Lime Green surface has a variety of flowers similar to overworld, but there will also be ‘Puffy Flowers’, that drop a certain colored wool instead of dye. Their trees will also drop a fruit that will feed you the most out of any tree fruit. The Lime Green world will definitely be a stop to make for those looking to make armor and tools.
Crimson – Crimson underground contains the tools you need to mine katchin ore and spirit shard ore (Another source of healing). This is an important building block into making top notch swords and training equipment (later on). Therefore I think the surface should also help with this kind of progress. A planet with a Crimson surface will not have too much in the way of plantlife. Perhaps a fruit from the tree leaves, but other than that it will only have the occasional dye flower. The wildlife, on the other hand…
Gold – Gold surfaces will probably be the rarest, and harbor equally valuable plants. A golden apple may fall from the trees, and the plants give more dye than the rest. Gold worlds are a treat, as they contain a lot of valuable commodities, but don’t have the basics. Don’t expect to find iron on these planets, and as such, don’t expect to find anything but exotic plants.
Gold – With that out of the way, let’s pick up where we left off. Gold planets will have wildlife that blends well in its environment. The creatures will be non-hostile, and will run away at high speeds the first time they see you. Lower level players won’t even be able to catch these buggers, but they can yield some tasty meat. Some even eat the gems from the caves! Imagine that.
Silver – Silver has a good balance of resources naturally on the planet, but the wildlife is all but helpful. Most creatures drop nothing, but are still hostile in an annoying way. You may get the occasional chicken nugget sized meal from them, but other than that, you will have to look elsewhere if you want a filling meal or a fitting challenge.
Purple – Purple planets are oil rich. Having purple water is rare because of how much oil is in it, so the wildlife should reflect the toxicity of their environment. They will use strong toxins that will have an effect much stronger than regular poison. Most defensive in nature, and some may be dinosaurs. They will also yield toxic meats that poison you unless cooked. On the bright side, Purple surface can sometimes just have pools of oil lying around. So that means you can get out faster. Hurray!
Lime Green – Lime Green wildlife will look friendly and colorful, just like the environment in which they reside. They will be the strangest looking creatures, with the most filling food drops, and some even fight back and provide proper challenge for early game players who are looking for a way to train. There will be one rare dinosaur creature that will probably be the toughest wild animal in the game? Hope you like that thought, and I hope Jin does too.
Crimson – The underground and overworld of Crimson provide progress. All creatures on the Crimson surface are hostile, save for one rabbit like creature that will follow you around and protect you if you feed it. The creatures will drop dinosaur meat, aside from the rabbit of course, who will drop nothing but sadness because you killed an adorable creature.
So there you have it. A Crimson planet is about progress, a Lime Green planet is about fun, a Gold planet is about Luxury and Speed, a Silver planet is about balance, and a Purple planet is about Endurance. Anyway, sorry I couldn’t provide many examples of plants and wildlife, I will explain why now.
Where have I been?
Simply put, my computer went kapoot. I tried to factory reset it to get Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to work, and it didn’t work. Currently it is in the shop getting fixed as I type this all up on my phone (which is why I think this won’t even make a midnight release). So moving forward, I expect to have my computer back up and running by mid december, and hopefully I can finally enjoy Xeno 2.
New Community Events
So now that the mod has a bit more of a planned out feature as far as PvP comes, I can get serious about the tourney. The reason I didn’t do it was due to some rather harsh complaints about the ‘lack of skill’ involved in Dbc fights. With recent balances though, a few more updates and the Inter-Dimensional Worlds Martial Arts Tournament will open up signing to its first bracket of over 128 participants! Its hard to get to an exact number, last time I had a few extra applicants because I was at 123 and waited for the last 5. Next thing I knew there were 131 and it would feel wrong to tell someone they were too late.
After the IDWMA comes Art contests. I was also thinking though, that aside from fanart, there could also be fan videos, fan animations, I don’t know, why don’t you guys suggest some community events?
