    lol Exactly! Talking to the other faction is fine and if someone is being a jerk, ignore and report them. It's not one bit different than someone on your own faction acting like a tool.

    But I feel at this point I must point out that previous logic dictates you would report them by pantomime only as the devs aren't exactly anyone's faction!!

    oh just thought of another thing for the thing

    idle animations for drinking, eating, smoking, and stuff.

    And if they could combine it with the eventual sitting animations woooo boy that would be great.

    LotRO had a fun emote like that. /smoke would make my guy just pull out a pipe and start smoking. He'd chill until further notice. Take a few puffs, look around, exhale, take a few puffs, on and on. So casual.

    Man that sounds awesome

    I remember City of Heroes had /eat, /drink, and /sit but never any combination :((

    some NPCs would sit and drink tea/dip tea bags in cups and they said they were going to add them but then the game was killed

    I love the things I see here, and even as someone who isn't hugely into RP, I love a lot of this.
    Guild uniforms get a definite yes from me, it would be epic to show up to some raid or pvp event wearing matching uniforms and all, as well as having the guild hall decked out with flags and everything of our guild insignia. That all sounds very awesome, and I'm definitely interested in that.

    Sitting is a great thing, and if we can sit on some things proper, that'd be even better. I also love the idea of guild-sized plugins for housing, being able to maintain a farm with people on the guild lands would be amazing, and i would certainly be doing that as well, contributing to the guild crafting stashes :D
    Furthermore, I would like to see trophies like EQ2 did. If you killed a raid boss, you could mount its head on a pedestal in your guild hall for others to see. I never did raid in EQ2, but the concept itself is awesome.

    yeah trophy heads would be awesome!

    maybe instead of raids have it like..tied to something like "kill 500 of a certain monster and get a head trophy of it"

    Or an interact able trophy. Kill 1000 antelope, and you get a horn that you can be used as a musical instrument!

    I don't know how hard to do this or is it even possible with your magnificent engine, buuut..
    Maybe.. animation for two person emotes? :oops: For example: Hug.

    It would be awesome if two player could actually hug each other.. I mean virtually ;)

    Um...that would be a double edged sword. One one side, it's nice, on the other side I don't want to start getting creeped out by strangers doing some elaborate hug or maybe kiss without my consent, especially since I tend to play female characters and there are lots of horny 16 yo and weirdos out there.

    Yeah, I know.. that's sucks. It could be implemented as "If both player do the animation and select each other." :)

    It would have to be done with both parties inputting the command or it fails to take place.
    And yes I share chomags feelings about it. Hugging without my consent would be a no no.

    Yeah, I could see that working.

    Jim wants to hug you. Then if you do the same toward the other character in like a 10 sec timeframe, the advanced animation plays.

    The "wants to hug" emote animation should be that they open their arms offering, then if you don't respond it finishes with them acting all sad.

    If an Aurin hugs a Granok like they'd hug another Aurin, it'd look silly, and male Human hugging male Human would probably be different than male Human hugging female Human, etc.

    Just looking at the Exile side alone, wouldn't that work out to needing 8 'hug attempt' animations (one for each of the sexes of the four races) plus 32 actual 'hug' animations for each of the possible pairings? (64 animations if which one initiated the hug makes a difference to the animation, i.e. whether 'male Granok hugged by female Aurin' differs from 'female Aurin hugged by male Granok'.)

    40 hug animations just for the Exiles. I suspect that somewhere, this thread has made an animation artist cringe. ;)

    Ooo I completely forgot this but this would be amazing.
    In addition to a bio page, a place to put notes of stuff that happens to you ingame to your character - like a journal.
    Folks who dont rp can use it for other things - keep track of what to farm, good locations for this etc, but a journal with dates would be amazing to chart a characters story. Make it a side bar/attachment to the galactic archive.

    I actually just hypothesized a design for something akin to this in the addons thread over on WSRP. :)

    Ooo I love the idea ! An addon would work just as well actually . Dossiers sounds like the perfect name for the addon to!
