Social rewrite

Postby Gorm » Thu Feb 03, 2005 4:03 am

Hey guys, I am currently in the process of totally rewriting all of the games socials. As such, I would like to ask for your comments, suggestions and thoughts.

What I would like is for folks to comment on socials you:

A) know there is an obvious typo or spelling/grammar error in.
B) have never liked, thought were not thematically appropriate, etc.
C) would like to see but do not currently exist.

You need not mention specifics, I will handle that, but I would really appreciate your input none the less. If you feel inclined to toss in reasoning, or more detailed thoughts feel free, but simple lists will do.

First thing that is weird is you can't do some things like slap or laugh at maybe..when something is bashed. "They aren't in the proper position" or something. Since it's just a social, I'm not sure why that's limiting.

Always wished I could point in a certain direction (e/w/n/s/u/d) without using /emote. It would have been nice in silenced rooms, though without a room silence spell that may not be an issue any more.

/point Tank
/point east

Ohh nifty idea Mplor.

As was said heaps of the socials are great commands but they don't work if the position is set wrong in them. Things like touch, especially touch.... need to be available always!

PS: I'd prolly vote to keep some of the classics like ack, pillow, nog and skip!

Impale.... *eye roll* Kill it please.

Need a head shake that can be directed,, I keep shaking people's hands. *mutter* In fact I think I'm known for that one. Famous almost.

Love Pillow! One of my faves.

Rework sneeze,, SHEESH. And Cough. *grin* Those are just icky.

OH!!! And get rid of nose please!! Or fix it so you have to type the whole thing. Nothing worse than being in an rp situation and meaning to type nod and typoing... As some of you might have seen in another of my posts. *blush*

And thanks Gorm!!!!! I'm sure I'll think of some more. *halo*

For one of the cleric poses, it says "a hug pile of gold". Hug should be huge.

As stated, you might want to look at the minimum position required for each social. A sizable number don't work when sitting/resting.


catch
%1 catches %2 before %3 falls down.

grimace...we need this!
Visibly disturbed, %1 grimaces in disapproval. (or whatever)

mogorize
%1 brutally clubs %2 over the head. %1 has been mogorized!

Us ladies need a swoon social. "Gasp me" is a marvelous social but it just doesn't carry all the beautiful connotations of a graceful swoon! :-P

Another good thing to do would be actually alphabetizing the socials properly so they don't interfere with aliases and stuff.

could i get a sailor moon social?

.... fighting evil by moonlight
winning love by daylight
never run from a real fight
she is the one named sailor moon!

she will never turn her back on a friend
she is always there to the end
she is the one on whom we can depend
she is the one named sailor moon!

****

or how about a sing social that let you sing colorized text?


****

from mishri:

when you touch me shouldn't it say like "You touch yourself. RIGHT ON!" instead of "You touch yourself. Eeeewww feels gross doesn't it?"

course i suggest in mishri's case it says "You attempt to touch yourself but you miss!"

If you're redoing socials to take out anachronisms, then I think "bang self" needs to be changed.. something about shooting yourself in the head.

On the other hand, I like impale. I'm an anti-anti-impaler. Anti.. ant.. uh.. just call me Vlad.

bard sing- sings tales of long ago.
battlechanter - sings tales of past glory.

could toss in some racial specific emotes

human- doesn't know which side to pick, good race or evil race.

dwarf- guess I'll never play for the NBA

halfing- dam giants think we are chess pieces

elf- of course I'm better than you, stupid.

barbarian- I'm bigger than you, therefore I'm right.

gnome- I feel tough standing next to a halfling.

eh why bother, people can make aliases for emotes if they really wanted to.
let us colors for emotes! turn it back on!

If you're going to make race-specific socials, then the one for gnome needs to be nekler.

Not sure if this is a social or a proc on an item, but I think it would be nice if you poked people with what you hold.

E.g. if I hold a dry stick I poke with that. (no damage)
