I have a dream


Dreamix

Recommended Posts

I wish we could just start over again. From scratch, or zero if you like. Removing everything and just keeping the basics like the human race or server code and encouraging people to forget about all their current characters. And cats, lizards, other races and other snowflake shit would need to be put into suggestions for them to be eventually approved and coded in. And some of the stupid shit we have now, including cats and lizards, would be denied because it adds nothing new to the game.


Just imagine all the new races we could have, all the innovative and 'new' things we can't have now because of the boring human animals we call our "xeno" races.

I kind of, sometimes, wish for this as well.


But not from the perspective of races. Instead, from the perspective of the station itself. I want to do something stupid, something interesting, and something niche. But I am given a relatively standard station instead.


O'well, there's always a way to make shit work, hooyah?

Oh, no. There's not a single way to do anything radical/extreme. People don't want to be mean and bad, and make other people sad because they lost their characters for whatever reason.

Just like the races, the time invested in making lore for them and people's characters, is all that's holding us back from removing the furry races and replacing them with something nice that actually looks like an unknown race.


You may call me a fun-hater, and you're not wrong.

What makes what you want more valid than what other players want?


There's nothing stopping you from doing exactly what you're saying. There are resources available to you to host your own server and do whatever you want.

Hey mister, you don't get to talk about 'snowflake shit'


I've looked through the .dmis, there's quite a few special custom sprites with YOUR name on them. seems like someone had their own snowflake phase, i think a few of them are getting added back in, too

As much as it might sadden me to lose some things, I do agree this idea does offer quite a lot. But it would require a lot of time to get something going, not to say it's impossible to get a relatively unique idea on it's feet and even thriving, just look at Lifeweb as an example of what an active and dedicated dev can get done.

You are in the position to take these kinds of risks, especially considering your ability to actually code in your ideas. Perhaps have a secondary 'test/experimental' server to play around and develop your ideas further?

 

Sometimes I wish the server had a more active ERP community.

I can't tell whether or not this is a serious post.

Why? D-do you want to ERP with m-me Carver-sama? *blushes*

I WILL NOT TOLERATE SLANDER IN THIS HOUSE. GO SIT ON THE STAIRS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

The thing is, people (including me, and probably Skulley) want this server with this playerbase to grow, be improved, and change according to their plans, standards and ideas. Hosting an entirely new (or experimental) server is not a solution, or a way to achieve what I'm talkin' about.


And that's why this thread is titled "I have a dream", and not "I have an idea". Because people's views/opinions on what's good for the server differ.

So in other words,

i want other people to do what i want, and not what they want, fuck the people.

Ya know, I always thought it'd be cool if there was a separate ship (maybe even a server) which was basically the NSS Auroras escort ship. A smaller crewed drone battle ship. Could even have it were certain events on the battle ship effect the Aurora station and visa versa. Mite b cool?

Nostalgic post is nostalgic.

What you really want is a restart, to remove all you know, because you've been playing this game so long you've completely run out of ideas and inspiration.

Maybe I do, I don't really know. But a (small) change is always nice, ya?

Yeah. I'm a hitler now. You're also a hitler. Everyone's a hitler for having different expectations of what the server should be. NOT BAIT.

I can appreciate the sentiment. While I'm actually quite fond of our lore, detached from the anthropomorphic animal physical appearances and furry community infiltration, I understand the sentiment of wanting to wipe the slate clean and start from scratch on something totally new and original. I don't think Dreamix is saying: "You should all do what I want or off to the gas chambers sieg heil!" but rather "Here's what I wish we'd all do together." Sure, not everyone in the community wants to do it and I'm sure he accepts that, but it's still a very tantalizing and persistent "what if?"

Ohh, I understand you, brother. I too would like a bit of a change. I was actually looking forward to the new ground based map, it would've been a gamechanger.

Was this worth writing or do you lot have too much time on your hands?

That's comedy gold right here, my boy. I could take all your posts and make a new lorem ipsum out of it. And that, not even including the shitposts. Actually, you're a meme.


But this is apparently the biggest waste of time. Isn't everything? Complaints that are becoming archived due to inactivity? Countless suggestions that are buried in their forum? All of the forum-roleplay sub-forum? Maybe dead incident reports or NT personnel database?


Oh, wellIs that called hypocrisy, or whatever? I'm slowly drifting towards the shitposting life.
