Asset Feature Requests
1. The ability to turn off icons, which make building very frustrating. The object icons often hide items below them.
2. All building blocks, generic platforms and walls could be moved to a category of "primitives." There should be one building block etc of each size and shape, with a drop down costume/texture menu. In that menu, we could have 50 seamless textures to choose from.
The ability to scale these primitives would be amazing, but I'm not sure if the tech is there.
1. A curved corner that connects two generic walls.
2. Steps (a smallish set of 5 steps that could be used for a small platform, or used many times to climb a pyramid)
3. Curved walls
Big Request: Corridor "Legos"
At the min., if you disassembled the existing ship interiors and other maps into pieces that we could reassemble to create unique interiors, designed corridors, unique paths to sickbays, etc., it would greatly improve set building. Basically, these would be tunnel pieces that fit together, using corners, etc.
Must haves: Transporter room, sickbay, mess hall, engineering, and a turbolift that fits well with the new legos. These should come with doors that open, so that we can attach them to corridors that we piece together as legos.
Wish list for Legos: Fed, Klingon, TOS and Caves.
Two Piece Sets
A brig set (brig and forceflied door, turned off and on using triggers)
Duplicate lights (one on, one off) turned on and off using triggers.
A camp fire and other fire props (1 piece as the wood, barrel, or firepit, and the second piece is the fire that can be turned on and off using triggers).
More stuff like this, where triggers and assets work together.
(if not included with legos):
Map with a Sickbay
A platform to use for fed, klingon, etc., floors and ceilings.
Cave walls that fit together with no texture overlap, along with cave floors and ceilings.
A flat exterior map of carpet, with lighting appropriate for interior set buildings.
Windows that are simple and easy to use.
A horizontal forcefield that isn't broken.
More fire props besides the Klingon one.
More food related items, and other "nice touch" details, like books, little figurines, etc.
More items like the rock platforms, which can be fit together to make things like Ziggurats, bridges, etc.
Larger variety of Fed and other faction walls.
Klingon and other wall doors that open.
A Bajoran orb to go with the orb-like fx.
A generic throne that works with an existing a npc sit animation, along with other chairs that work with sit animations.
Small things that can be taken (using triggers): phasers, communicators, tricorders, med kit, hypos, data pads, etc.
A captain's chair to use with captain's chair platform.
More generic "premodern" props, for use on ancient planets, includes things like the greek temple pieces from the gateway ground map.
Historical stuff: (basically anything you can take from CO or NW that would pass as historical)
more to come...
