public to do list

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Sun Jun 22, 2008 10:00 am

This is just a place where for me to keep a "to do" list based on my ideas and suggestions from Players. It'll also be so everyone can kind of see a few of the things I'm working on or plan on to improve Aenea.  The order of the list does not denote priority in tasks.

The Semi-Updated List:


battle ai - upgrade NPC battle ai so they make smarter choices in combat

big library - add one somewhere that PCs can provide books for and learn from

PC head customizing system
- add new head models
- add more VFX head stuff (hood, mask, veil, hats, eyes, fangs, hair, etc.) (in progress, very slowly)
- fix bugs in system (in progress)
- - Updated hood/hat/jewelry VFX for head customizing (mainly the fix for halflings, but some other minor adjustments as well)
- update several VFX models with better appearances

tradeskills - add different tradeskills PCs of any class can use and improve upon by use instead of by level-up:
- gemcutting - turn uncut gemstones into valuable treasure
- runemaking - paint temporary magical runes on items to add minor properties
- cooking & brewing - turn basic foods/materials into better foods
- farming - plant crops for own use or sale, get milk from cows, honey from bee hives
- alchemy - make alchemical items from base materials
- herbalism - make minor healing or enhancing items from natural ingredients
- - recode for faster processing using alchemy base code?
- jewelrycrafting - make non-magical rings and necklaces from gold, gems, and other materials
- leatherworking - use animal hides to make leather and leather items (including leather/hide/studded leather armors, boots, belts, etc.)
- tailoring - make non-armor items from cloth, make cloth, add to existing worn items (clothing, cloaks, belts, gloves, etc.)
- - recode for faster processing using alchemy base code
- metallurgy - mining, turning ores into metal, make special components to add to metal items and add them
- - add a synergy bonus to armorsmithing, weaponsmithing, jewelrycrafting if high enough ranking
- armorsmithing - make all types of individual armors (Craft Armor ranks will add bonus to tradeskill checks)
- weaponsmithing - make all types of individual weapons (Craft Weapon ranks will add bonus to tradeskill checks)
- engineering - create temporary siege weapons, create lock picking tools, grappling hooks, etc.
- poisonbrewing - turn monster parts and plant parts into poisons for weapons

add more semi-classes

add more prestige classes

fill out "sparse" locations with more detail and stuff to do (in progress)

add more underwater areas (in progress)

add more high-level areas (in progress)

add stuff for barbarians
- animal totem feats or items?
- rage-based events?
- barbarian-specific quests?

add stuff for rogues
- stealth-based quests?
- city-based quests?

learn how to make new emitters with gmax

learn how to do creature/placeable model animations

finish epic magic system
- initial release of functionality
- recode epic research portion (done, but needs work)
- fix bugs in the casting system (in progress)

Expand VFX shoulder pets to include:
-hawk, raven, owl, rat, mouse
-figure out and fix parrots issue

Add new spells
- cleric/druid undead-targeting spells
- illusion spells

Rewrite quest system (in progress)
- recode quest system to reduce scripting and provide for easier expansion
- - declutter journal by removing quests, moving information to new VC functions
- - - ;;quest status xxxx (current quest/job title and description)
- - - ;;quest list (all job titles: current and finished)
- fix existing quests (in progress)
- add new quests/jobs (in progress)
- make improvements for easier quest additions
- make data more secure by storing quest statuses on PC database item


Create new "immersion" scripting
- some merchants that close up shop (or only open up) at night (acting more like real shopkeepers that way) (in progress)
- - not for the Vale, since that's PC-Central
- improve commoner spawning (make use of Sparky and off-palette NPCs?)
- - weather/season-dependent clothing (sort of in previous commoner spawn testing)
- - torches/lanterns at night (already in previous commoner spawn testing)
- - kingdom-specific clothing tendencies (different styles for different regions)?

Future tileset work:
- Interiors (with ceilings)?
- - updates to existing tiles?
- - - with good ceilings, not just mirrors of ground level
- - - using existing textures so everything matches up and areas don't need to be rebuilt
- - new interiors that fit?

Revamp magic item enchantment
- update VC commands ("mi", for "magic item")
- update scripting to use lab inventories instead of sorting PC inventories (faster scripting to avoid lag from packrats)
- add more capability to add properties to existing items (include a limit on total value of finished items)
- add boost or cost reduction for priests of Ralth for weapons/armors/helms/shields
- add boost or cost reduction for priests of Jewel and Terris for enchanting magical gems
- add capability to create some currently off-palette items
- add ability to use up blood of magic in exchange for xp in enchanting some items

Add new remains models for more creature types
- plants (pile of sticks and leaves)

- elementals (multicolored crystal)

Finish Underdark expansion

Add more high level areas



figure out how to add 12 more hours of computer time to each day... Rolling Eyes

Bug Sweep Focus: Changing gears for a while to focus on the huge list of bugs that need serious attention. Basic plan now:
1. Finish and fix issues with magic spells overhaul.
2. Overhaul epic magic to tackle parts that aren't working right.
3. Hit other bugs with a giant hammer. Well, maybe just focus on fixing them.
4. Go through suggestions list and sort/implement a bunch.
5. Caster-level selectable item enchantment for potions/scrolls/wands.
6. Quest system overhaul.
7. Other new content work...
