Metaroom Ideas

Well, people, give them up!

Mine would be more of a world than a metaroom. With the Capitilla "crashed" into it. It'd be quite blank and empty, but have an interesting ecosystem, and treehouses, like in C1.

I didn't really like the ships in C3/DS, but since I can't get C2 to work on my laptop. =(

I once imagined a metaroom made from candy. Cake for floors, icing everywhere, candy canes growing, lollipop trees, wild gummi bears and lemonade lakes.
Ooh, and cotton candy snow.

That or a farm-themed metaroom where you can 'buy' more plants and seeds by 'selling' your crops. Ought to be fun actually growing and taking care of a field of veggies. Especially if your norns can help pull weeds and stuff.

Would be easy enough to create some Norn "npcs" that have their brains wired to perform simple tasks such as pulling weeds or gathering food. Kinda like garden gnomes.

Hmm, i really like that farm idea. :)

What i'd like in metarooms is that moving around in them would be simple enough so norns wouldn''t end up hanging in dead-ends.

One thing that really annoys me in norn terrarium is that damn pond in the right side. Balloons or flying toys always end up there, and then norns fall asleep underwater when trying to get them. -__-'

I always wanted a metaroom that took place in the clouds; like that one cloudy area in Creatures Adventures. o_o Maybe it could look like a little cloudy palace in a special domain of the skies, renewed from the ancient Albia.

...It'll never happen. :P *hums Castle on a Cloud* "I like to go there in my sleep..."

A Ghost Zone metaroom!
*is spanked for her Danny Phantom obsession*
... A Sherwood metaroom? With lots of cool treehouses?
*is spanked for bringing up her new game addiction*

Sorry, I suck at this sort of thing X3

Somebody played too much SimFarm when they were smaller... XD

I'd like to see a yellowy-coloured metaroom, a warm and fuzzy friendly place. :) I know the norns are whizzing through space, but I don't like spacescapes, they're a bit depressing. :P

Bleh, SimFarm was boooooring. I play Harvest Moon. And not when I was younger, either. ;)

Me and my girlfriend might start working on a farm-themed metaroom this summer, but we'll still have to see how things go with exams and stuff.

That would be a Norn's idea of Heaven I think! Actually, if somebody did make a cheese metaroom, how ironic would that be.

Go easy on typing all in CAPS please Nikizai. :)

A good metaroom I recken would be a Norn Hell Metaroom, with spewing lava, undead Norns and possibly a devil Grendel! [evil]

Would it be possible to have a metaroom that was completely filled with dirt where either norns and/or the hand could dig their own paths? It would be pretty cool, sort of like an Ant Farm or something.

That's a cool idea, Rascii, but I think the game is too limited to supply it. :(

Not really. It's definitely possible. Just involve some nifty coding and some clever methodology.

You can do an awful lot with the Docking Station engine.

That would be fantastic, maybe make some mole-like norns...

Heh, I guess we learn something new every day. If it's possible to make a cheese metaroom, I'd go for it! :D

Should be possible to make a room made of cheese Norns can dig/eat through. :D
Not even that hard. All you need to do is make a huge grid-like room map, put cheese in every cell of the grid and add some rules for when to open up room boundaries.

Same for dirt, of course, but cheese would be more fun. A "design your own room"-room could also be done.

on a similar note, how possible/legal would it be to make a metaroom that takes the ship of c3 and expands it considerably? by 'expand' i haven't decided if i mean making a bunch of extra rooms or actually attacking the existing terrariums and making them bigger.

if we're not the change we want to see
if we're not the change, who will be?

Sure, if it had a really "far out" touch of design. If there were truly many different parts and functions with it that were really.. Something else, it would be quite cool!

Honestly I think Metarooms are the funnest things to download.. Too bad there aren't many.

Making a metaroom's a hard and long thing to do. And considering how many ideas that are spewed out, I doubt a single team would have time to do every single request. :/

Anywho, to pitch my idea(s) out there, one of my older ideas was Phantom Run, a dark metaroom devoid of light for photosensitive creatures. My second idea lacks a name, but it would have a level of air and a level of water, with an elevator between them.

Off-topic: No offense jocgame, but your posts are an eyesore. I suggest you run them through a spell-checker or something.

I would really like to see a *nice* snowy metaroom. I know there's Ostrova but that just doesn't cut it for me; there are metarooms out there (Aquatilis, Gardenia, the Garbage Dump, to name a few) available for free that have much better graphics.

Maybe in this *other* snowy metaroom, there could be a frozen lake or something where Norns slide around when they try to walk on the ice. Maybe the bones of some kind of mammoth-like critter are weathering out of the snow. There could be little critters that look like Saiga running around.


I also think it would be neat to have some kind of floating space forest with treehouses--maybe a circuit world, like C12DS, and any Norn that falls down to the "bottom" comes flying up in the air on the other side, since there is no solid bottom, it's all open air.


My last idea would be for a desert-themed metaroom that is full of old ruins, like some kind of generic Egyptian/Persian/Precolumbian ruins. This one would involve a puzzle, because once you entered it with a creature for the first time, the door you came in through would power down (and possibly you would be unable to pick up your creature), and you wouldn't be able to use it; in order to make everything work again you would have to take your Norn down into the ruins and perform some special task, maybe putting a special feather on a certain scale. Once that was done the door and room shortcut would become active and the creature would be pick-up-able again.

My first idea is a playground! With monkey bars,a slide,swings, a candy stand, a ice cream stand, a hotdog stand, a chocalate milk stand, and more.
