Should we be able to see weather from a building with an open window to the outside?

Seeing outside weather with open window

Postby Snickie » Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:16 pm

Right now we can do so many things with open windows like pass notes, whisper, roleplay kinky sex between two characters in different buildings, etc etc etc. But we can't see weather.

I suggest that we're able to see weather outside when we're in the first room of a building with an open window. There doesn't have to be a notification; just a blurb of text on the Location page.

Something like this:

"Windy" would only show up if outside it said "fast wind" or anything stronger than that. Anything less and nothing would show up.

Going with 'Yes yes yes oh my god yes!' :mrgreen:

I don't see how you can be sitting next to an open window and somehow not notice when it starts pouring down rain, and sometimes it'd be nice to know these things without actually having to step outside in it.

'Hey is that blizzard still going?'
'Oh I have no idea, let me step fully outside and then look around a minute to check.' :lol:

Notifications would be kind of nice too, but I'd be happy enough with just the location tab.

Can you please keep the poll options more neutral? Just because someone wants to vote no, it doesn't mean they think along the lines of what follows no.
I have voted yes, by the way.
I don't think we should be getting notifications when our chars are inside. They're not just sitting there, constantly watching the weather, are they? Although, it wouldn't surprise me if some of them did just that. Still, you get my drift. Checking under the location tab would be just fine.

Maybe we could have a small button next to the knock the door (or in objects, next to close the window) to check the time. Honestly, I can't be a whole day next to a window without realize the weather outside (it it's not a biiig storm or something like that...) :roll:

Implemented.
The only change is that any wind speed is visible, because it was easier to do.
