I've been away from this thread for a while, but now that i'm again looking for a RP sim to enjoy playing immersively i wanted to check how this discussion evolved ....
Yes, para RPing is for people who like it (i'm quite good at it, but i don't like it). For some reason many RPers considers it's not good if you do'nt fill your 5min turn with plenty of words about every aspects of why you take a second beer at the bar while keeing a hand on the handle of your weapon or whatever ... but hey, in "Role play" there's the word "play" !!! reading or writing a story is not playing, it's an enjoyable hobby, but not playing 😛
So in the end, what about a sim, (sci fi or med fan) where you can live IC, immersively, when you're there, like using Unity system to sandbox around in some everyday duty, and react live using emotes and direct speech when you meet someone ...you know like .. "playing"
i haven't found such a sim yet .. does any one did ?
i'd be eager to help in building one .. if some sim owner wants extra insipration
just now, while thinking of it all , I imagine a land, a sea shore on one side with nice underwater scenes, where untold creatures might lure .. some fisherman shack at one hand, a hidden smuggler grove or cav on the other end .. a forest with a road from the fishemen village to a little town ... and a couple misteries and dangers for those who dare leaving the road ... the little town : small farms, a walled center with houses and workshops ... next to the town, a fort on the hill above where the lord lives and tries to rule over the land...
Above that, magical flying islands, where winged creatures live and look down to the crawlers beneath ...
And above that ... a space station, a pre apocalyptic remnant ? a lost time traveler ? an alien device ? filled with droids and cyborgs as well as various muted creatures ... and inhabitant of the land below who where taken there for study and might have settled there afterwards ...(and why not some Nanite System devices)
Each layer mostly ignoring the other layers, but leading to surprising encounters once in a while ...
About RP rules :
- you can make a paragraph when you enter the game, because no one waits for you before that, then you mostly one-line your rp with some emotes so it's fast paced and alive, and fun for every one , one or two minutes max between replies seems ok to me, if having most of them fusing in no time
- when in the sim, you're supposed to be IC, if not then rather station at the landing area, same if you intend to be afk for an extended time.
Who wanna play there ? who wanna build it ?
-> i'd love to do both ♥ who else ? i have plenty of ideas
