Building descriptions generate an event when entering

Postby Doug R. » Wed Jan 23, 2013 3:49 pm

Ok, so, we added this nice feature of allowing building descriptions that I never, ever see, because I don't click the location tab inside a building until I'm leaving it. How about we implement an option that when entering a building, the description pops up as an event (kind of like when you spawn).

Will it get annoying if I'm going in and out, moving piles or resources or something?

As long as it is indeed an option, so it can be switched off when someone has to move a lot of stuff around, I fully agree.

You have description also when walking to place from road.
As for this it would be good if you would get such description max once per day. So if you get in and out only first time you have such description, later just like its now. Next day, again you can have it. So it would remind you how this room looks and whats in, but not so often to make it annoying.

I like this idea as long as it is optional.

Yes, if it is optional I like it.. Funny part is, I didn't know it was even an option to do at all. >.<

Maybe only when it's the first time you get into or it has been modified?

I'm fine with once a day if it's not been modified.

Can you please vote in poll as it would be non-optional feature?

I mean: almost any interface change is positive, especially if it can be optionally disabled. I'm trying to find the most useful and interesting suggestions to implement and almost 100% "yes" for many of them (which also can mean "why not, but I'll not use it") doesn't help me to distinguish really most useful. In example custom css skins are currently used by just 8 players (but it was good decision to implement is, because I'm 12.5% of these players).

Thanks.

Wait.... what? I know this is not the place for this but can someone tell me how I add a description to an house? I was not aware we could do this now.

As for the suggestion itself. I like it as long as we make it not annoying. As for being needed, I think it would be quite nice actually. Sure people can just look at it now, but it's always nice to try and force RP events and see if people bite it or not.

Yes, but only if it is optional.

I think turning it off should prevent it from appearing at all - even if the desc has been modified. Or if we want to get complicated, you could have multiple settings. 1= completely off, 2 = only show when modified.

This sounds nice. I want to see it if it's there or if it changes, just not every time I go in or out.

To go out you would have to click the location page, and see the description. I believe it would suffice having an optional event when you enter a location with a description.
