So, I basically just had a quick question for everyone…
I know that there’s a heavy want for ‘infinite worlds’ or map expansion, just general world enlargement, but I really haven’t noticed any agreement or just discussion on the matter. So I rather than just posting a suggestion of what I think Radiant Entertainment should do, I’d much rather have you guys, or that is, all of us discuss what would be the best course of action for this, if even possible, feature.
To get the ball rolling a little, there’s already a few noted ideas on how to proceed with said feature, and I’ve added them below:
Infinite Worlds: As far as I have seen and heard, infinite worlds in Stonehearth leans over to the rather difficult side as opposed to simple and easy, when it comes to actually implementing it into the game. But hey, who knows, there could be a way, so we could always leave it in for discussion.
Map Segments: Basically what this means is, you load up your square portion of the map. Once you leave the area, for example, with soldiers, either North, East, South, or West, you’ll load up the square block that’s adjacent to your previous location. For me, if you’ve ever heard of it, I think the idea is identical to Sim City 4’s map/region system.
Just to throw it out there, I personally love this idea. It allows for much faster load times, while still having a massive world. I could go on about this, but this post is long enough, so I’ll skip that for now…
- Larger Worlds: Just as it sounds; the maps would be bigger. I really can’t explain that any further… They’d be bigger (period) (.)
But what do you guys think!?
Let me know and let's talk about it! -Surly
