Yes, I'm fairly sure we all know that's what you're talking about. The point is, it's just NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Cyan only has time to do so many ages. No matter what else happens, if they start making fan-idea ages, they will be FORCED to decrease their output of ages of their own creation.


And frankly, it's better that way. The only reason people don't get mobbed about being in Rehearsal is because nobody knows who is in it and who isn't.



Unless you're proposing to put the people in this "age creation group" of yours under an NDA as well...

Sorry, that still doesn't address the other problem. Namely, that this would absolutely DERAIL Cyan's normal production schedule.



Which is completly inexcusable.

:cry: The reality is, that the topic of explorer-created Ages has been hashed over and re-hashed over time and time again. Between the potential legal problems and the physical limitations Cyan has (it can't hire a whole new crew to take on the job of meshing explorer ideas and Cyan ideas), it just doesn't look feasable at all. :? Would be nice under some conditions... but simply ain't about to happen.

Ah, but Rand Miller himself said that Cyan is planning on releasing Age Creation tools. The only question is "When?"

That's true, alright. But it's definitely possible to have Ages without stepping on Cyan's story's toes. Ages of Ilathid is doing it, after all... And as far as I can see, Alcugs fan created Ages needed to be approved by Cyan (although I don't think they did an in depth review of them) before their release.

Personally I like the idea of submitting our age ideas to Cyan . I have a few places and who owned them and some of the puzzles done, but do not have the ability or desire to learn the programming part. If Cyan would just listen to my ideas and perhaps use them at a later date, I would sign a release. All I would want is the name I have given the age to remain and perhaps a book in my bevin when it first came out.

If Cyan's design team would just set up an email account and those of us who wish to submit ideas could. That would keep out ideas from being used by others. Although I would imagine with many people trying to create ages, there wil be some similarities between several ages.

This sounds like a good idea until you realize that Cyan is the last game company on the planet that is in need of new ideas...

We can do that already, just submit a "feature request"to http://support.urulive.com
and if they are doable, then Cyan MIGHT go forward with that idea, and the more people who put in feature requests on the same thing will give a higher likely hood of having ages/features implemented.

If you want to refine your idea first before submitting it, then just start a topic in this thread.

Can I really discribe my age idea (puzzels,story...) in the feature request?

Yes of course you can.:D

The Feature Request system is free and open to any feature from anyone.
:D (How big or little the feature request is depends on you.) :D

Grogyan has the right of it however, the more people requesting a idea the faster it might happen.

A good example of the group involvement and the refinement of an Age that I would like to see is Eder Labyrinth?
