So, I think this may be a pretty large undertaking, but it's something that I've been playing around with in my ideas for a while. Crafting has become sort of null. There hasn't been much to it, and when new things are added, it's only one pattern at a time. Crafting could be a part of the game to make us work for things. It gets us out into the kingdom to get us collecting and playing games to get dye bottles. The idea is there and the idea is great! However, there isn't much incentive to keep us crafting. There are a lot of clothes to craft and I'm sure nobody has EVERY piece crafted (at least that I know of...). That being said, I think we need more of an incentive to get out there and craft!
This is going to be a relatively long thread thatI'mm going to compile loads of information into it from my own ideas, as well as ideas that I've seen from other threads (I'll try to credit everyone where I can) and even just from talking to people in game!
That being said, let us begin:
Incorporating Gold Stamps:
So, as of now, we have events that give us sheep and bunnies to collect our craftable materials from. We have games that give us elemental bottles to collect dye from, and we have the dragons burning ability to collect a little bit of everything from. Granted, these events have become rather monotonous where people just log on a bunch of clones, plop them down into a room, and leave them running for ages in order to collect materials.
That being said, I'm going to suggest something that I'm sure countless people have requested/recommended, and possibly add a twist to it. There can be a ROOM that we can buy from gold stamps that has a few of the animals that we collect from, (possibly we can start with two of each, and two plants that we can craft from as well (baumwolle and reedies) and then from that, we can buy more from gold stamps to add to the room OR give us the opportunity to breed the animals to get more, while the gardening would work in the same way that it currently does. This would give an entirely new outlook to crafting and bring in another fun way to incorporate other possibilities and activities into VFK.
I know a while ago, @Zoee brought adding a few more colors/adjusting some colors to make them look closer to their actual colors. Zoee went in depth and even had pictures to show the differences between the purple that we have, and a new purple that we could incorporate into the game. (You can find this here- http://forum.missclue.com/discussion/880099/autumn-wild-west-paisley-bandanas-new-craft-color-combinations#latest ). I stand behind this entirely and agree with it! I would also LOVe to see the other colors that she mentioned. The coral and grey would be fantastic. FOR BOTH genders. To go further, I would also like to see seafoam brought into the mix. A seafoam color would go well with the release. We can add lavender, coral, seafoam, grey, and white (of course they would all have their three shades to keep up with the current trend). By doing this, it would bring for a better variety of colors that we can wear and give us more of an opportunity to get new items!
This one is a longshot and I know it. We have beanies, and staff has given us more beanies as of late, but I think crafting is the perfect place to get more of them. When you think of knitting, other than blankets, the first thing that I think of is knitted hats. Below are some examples.
Now, I know that these seem redundant, but I'd like to see something with more "slouch" like these have than what we currently have
Now, there isn't much here to say. I think we have a lot of great choices for shirts now, so this isn't a MAJOR issue in my eyes. One thing that I WOULD like to see, however, are PLAIN shirts. Longsleeve and short, with SMALL barely visible even, or non-existant honestly... but if there were to be a logo, the vfk logo on the shirt in the corner would be cute. Sort of like a polo shirt!
Here some examples!
Here is where we get to the juicy stuff. I would LOVE to see more craftable pants so that we can have more of a variety of color in the pants that we get. That being said, I would love to see different styles of jeans. For guys, we can have a straight cut, a skinny fit, a boot cut, and then a set that is skinny, but not TOO skinny, and the bottom cuffed. For girls jeans....(insert girl opinions because I don't want to speak for girls in case something like this happens and they don't get what they want).
Here are some examples!
----To preface these pictures; I'd like to see the styles of all of them in all of the different types of jeans so that there is more of a variety
----Also; obviously most jeans look the same, but basically what I'm saying is that there should be skinny jeans that look skinny, a regular jean and then one like the jeans that we have now from weekend wear...reference how the jeans look against the shoes for example
The skinny jeans!
The Straight legged jeans!
The bootleg jeans!
The cuffed jeans!
I LOVE the rad and nixie shoes that resemble vans (theres a debate on whether they're navy or gray; I still think they're gray. Come at me @NiceCutePumpkin ). Because of that, I would love to see those shoes become craftable with more colors! or something similar to them. Here are some examples!
These are pretty much all of the ideas that I have for the moment. If I get more I'll be sure to add them!
I also welcome everyone to jump in and give their ideas, but like always, I ask that things remain civil so that the thread does not get closed!
