Main Square/Plaza Suggestions

Recommended Posts

What features do you want to see in the main Square/Plaza/Hub?

 

Home had multiple through it's lifetime and some were more liked than others. I personally preferred the original EU square over any of the others. The only downside was it never had the [email protected] from Central Plaza.

The second EU square was also one of the best imo

The worst out of all regions was The Hub imo it was so bland and was clearly created with the focus of pushing the stores rather than community interaction. Central Plaza was much better.

There were key places in home that made people hang out there, the dance floors in central plaza, playground and pier park. The bridge in acorn park. Addictive mini games that felt like you were still in the same space and not loading up an app. One way out to rest of spaces not 20 different doors or touch this to go there type of things. But I’d agree with first eu square in picture being the best and most nostalgic for me. Probably needed a dance floor though and not just the PSP ad playing

Central Plaza had a lot of charm. Some of it could just be nostalgia, but I remember being genuinely impressed by the overall design, texture work and immersion. Everything felt connected, and I liked how your personal apartment lead out into the plaza. You could see the building you just came from and it was cute imagining everyone having their own little apartments in the building. It was spacious enough without being too large and empty, which I think is important for keeping immersion. It had a nice relaxing aesthetic, with an overall solid design that felt easy on the eyes. The Hub was the complete opposite for me, as it turned the warm, balanced atmosphere into a cold, sterile, futuristic theme that personally didn't feel like "Home" to me.

I did like the original EU Home Square, it worked well, you were able to get to all the main spaces and your apartment from the Square. Would like to have been able to get through those doors though.

The last EU Home Square looked good, if only we could have had the option of being able to wander a little further.

Canaha did a great job recreating lobby in vrc, so visually it must be close as possible (even if he 'didn't know me' *EDGE THEME*) . Also keep in mind that Tower Unite's lobby is veery close to PSH's one.

I believe the question was  "What features do you want to see in the main Square/Plaza/Hub?"

 

1) Advertisement, marketing and promotional posters as well as billboards and video screens. This contributed to a large part of Home's success. There's just no reason NOT to be advertising 3rd party content, your own content, mini games, events and sponsored promotions/affiliates WITHIN your virtual world. 

2) A community event board, where devs and players both can post any event, gathering, party, club recruitment and so on. Home had one of these and due to it's misuse and abuse...it was eventually pulled and never to be returned. However, because AviLife will be rated MA-17+ and geared toward a more mature adult audience...it is MY belief and opinion that this community and player base CAN handle such a feature. The devs can and should make appropriate adjustments or modifications to the event board, including moderation of any toxic, inflammable and spam posts, whenever necessary. 

3) A large and flamboyant dance floor with selectable music tracks should be an obvious and welcome feature. 

4) At least one primary mini game with leaderboard, exclusive that area. I'm not familiar with the other regions of Home but the NA Home Central Plaza had Saucer Pop and that was pretty popular among it's players. 

5) Storefronts; access points to other public spaces - Mall, Theater, Bowling Alley, Arcade, etc. All core areas should be immediately and visually accessible directly from the Square/Plaza/Hub. Other districts can branch off from other areas outside the Plaza.

6) A couple database terminals on opposite ends of the Plaza. This database would include pretty much everything to do with AviLife, not to be confused with the tutorial...more like a universal information center. 

7) A monument or tribute wall inscribed with all the names of the kickstarter backers, in some form or fashion. These people should definitely be recognized and immortalized within the game.

8 ) Seating arrangements designed to bring people together. I was a huge fan of the Home Central Plaza bench. Glitching and standing on top, by some very unique and talented people. I met some of my best friends and acquaintances on that bench and it was the first place I would go, after spawning into the plaza.

Poker tables or better yet a casino entrance. Probably already requested before.

Something i liked was the mystery of the big door with the logo Home in the Square EU. I think it could be cool to add some mysteries in AviLife, some secrets enigma. And why not like XI make some big events with mini games rewards, to try resolve these mysteries...  Daily challenges but interesting and with rewards, scoreboards leaders for the mini games, and a dancefloor like Central Plaza in NA .

Is there a way to add a day/night feature? That would look so cool! Seeing it get dark and suddenly neon lights everywhere. Also maybe if ur looking to have a larger plaza, have something like a park in the middle where people can just walk through.

 I would also love to see an outdoors dance floor out in the open where you can see all the things going on in the plaza. Something  like Central Plaza had.  Also have what Shadow-Runner said selectable music tracks.
