Please refer to above post. Kingdom flowers.

So, this is a post for all to suggesttheir opinions on what the flower should look like. =] I'll be designing it unless someone else wants to. Please be specific with what you want. It's hard for me to make things unless i know EXACTLY what the shell i'm doing. =)

I was hoping that the flower would relate to our kingdom colours, which i have no clue what LOL. I was thinking before like a big rose would be nice, but then it's not too unique. Hmm. But at the end how it looks counts more for what the name is. =) The name coudl be anything, so long as it fits.

Please post your ideas ^_^ I'm hoping to get opinion from Royalty too, because they're important, wel everyone is. I'm hoping everyone will decide on something the same, or like. ^_^;

OOH i love flowers, how about one flower too look kind of gothic lolita? sorry o.o i love that style, maybe a black flower with ice on it (wait there is no ice kingdom!) or something like that.. ooh how about... crystal roses! they could be crystal clear, and of course like all crystal have a sort of purple/pink shine shimmering on it! maybe even sparkly!

crystal roses..lolz *reminded of neopets LOL*

I tried black roses..they dont seem to look nice becuse the soil/bg is already dark. hmm

and Ed, i already made my fav xD

Anywho, back on track. The flowers should be based off a town's theme. For example zormite would have "icey"/watery flowers that are sparke blue while the pirates would have darker and not to attractive flowers.

TeRRi2k
06-29-2004, 10:15 PM
I repeat, I do not do kingdom flowers. <- it's for kingdoms who would LIKE to have a flower, so they submit themselves.

Zormite already has their flower. They're set to go. =]

At this rate, it seems like Zormite would be the only kingdom with a flower, but then, it's entirely up to the kingdom what they want (so hell do I care).

No it isn't. They're all celtic and crap. "Letz tak our queen in 2 batle"

It's enough that the women are fighting BUT THE QUEEN? I would understand if the King was fighting to boost the army's spirit but the QUEEN?

Wtf indeed.

TeRRi2k
06-30-2004, 04:01 AM
What's wrong with that? I fought wars as a Princess before e_e. She's the Queen, she can do whatever she wants =b It might seem weird for a girl/Queen to fight since of all the stereotypes/movies, etc. we know about and how typically in a lot of roleplays, you don't get girls fighting in battle. But the truth is not everyone roleplays on GK at all so the usual roles does not apply. :P

Are you kidding? Tons of girls in dustari are kick ass and way more powerful then some of the men, they should be able to fight. The queen and king fighting in a war is kind of odd though. ._.

o_O? i was talking abotu wars here yo LOL

yeeeeah well i disagree, anyhow o_o
I don't really enjoy most wars, because they aren't even wars. all it is is "ok, go to another kingdom's island, get completely screwed by powerplayers, whilst the spells flying overhead (usually also casted by powerplayers) lag you all to hell, then just wait for the sagesuns to come along and kill everything and declare themselves the winners."

If the kingdoms had more than a 40% RPing-member count, and there was a -balanced- war system, and the magic/prayer system wasn't so poor, then MAYBE wars would be fun. but they're not =x

TeRRi2k
06-30-2004, 08:33 PM
Ehh I think it's fun. Even though I'm a Sagesun, I die easily xD lvl 29 ><

I guess just being in it ish okay, winning or losing xD. However i understand how some players might not like it so o.o it's just me maybe, since normally I don't DO anything on GK too much, which might explain why wars to me can seem fun

Crono
06-30-2004, 09:06 PM

Wow so huge. I would prefer they thought of a way to implement SOME rping and maybe some new dungeons. Seriously, is generating a new dungeon then slapping maybe 2-3 new monsters into it really that hard?

How about different houses? Isn't anyone sick of seeing the same playerhouses over and over? I know Huru knows how to make graphics, It's simply a matter of editing.

Some sort kingdom specials? ANYTHING AT ALL?

How about some horse weapons :[[?

Compared to whats listed making flowers is nothing, though the flowers look good and are an -OK- idea and all but we really need something bigger, NEW, and useful.

I think he understood and that was why he high-fived you.

Although the flowers are nice, I'd like some other addition too. Some are perhaps more, or atleast just as easy to add. For example, remove maps alltogther and place the monsters in dungeons; panthers, sabre tooth tigers, iguanadons and red rexes (what's Graal's vibe with extinct creatures? Hope mammoots won't be next) in a sort of rainforest, bigworms and perhaps some smaller version or other creature in a desert. The rainforest would only require some new tree/plant images, the desert a bit more work.

New dungeon - new tileset, unless you want existing ones. And new monsters ARE coming out, it's just somethign that other staff are working on so I don't know when. Please do -not- say 'is it really that hard?' when you haven't worked on anything on GK before. Note that everyone works at different paces and have different expectations.

How about different houses? Isn't anyone sick of seeing the same playerhouses over and over? I know Huru knows how to make graphics, It's simply a matter of editing.

it's morethan just editing then. If the shape of houses are going to look a bit different, then materials would have to be changed, so scripts will be edited. Ganis would have to be changed. Etc. Gfx/parts in the gani can be modified, but again, if you want completely different ones, new gfx would have to be made.


How about some horse weapons :[[?

Okay, I dont get this. First people complain about pets lagging, and I myself get annoyed and people who walk past you with like 6 horses, so now you people want weapons for it when people already complain about the lag...? I guess horse weapons would be a cool thing though especially in RP.

I heard alchemy is coming out soon because Jagen asked me to test it out with him today, before Stefan leaves anyway. So i'm hoping that's true. And there's probably other things I'm not informed of.

Of course you're going to use the existing tile set, whats wrong with them? They're dungeony enough. 3 new monsters is all I'm asking for at the moment. How long has it been since the last new monster has came out? I know the glok lord was edited but someone screw me over and correct me if im wrong but I have no seen a monster change since early/mid 2003.

No they wouldnt. I'm talking about just the outsides. It would be for looks, not really having anything to do with materials. When you build a house it will generate a random outside gfx and stick to it. Maybe 1-4 different gfx's to be randomized from.

Ganis wouldnt have to be modifying much. I mean, isnt the gani just showing the house sitting there?

New gfx = why we have some global gats and people like you?

I've never complained about horse lag have I experienced it. Or have I? Horse weapons would be a matter of getting on one and wielding a lance. Seriously the GANI work shouldn't take more than a week or two.

as for the houses, it's arguable since i dont' knwo hat you have in mind: completely different or just a bit bigger with the door to the side, or a bit wider, etc. and I wasn't talking about the insides anyway. But the insides should be different if the outside looks totally different. And there arn't any GGT people i see, cept Chris.

I dont really care about the insides, i'm just saying that the outsides can be slightly edited and then used as random outside gfx for playerhouses.

I really want to see a weather system (if it's possible and not real laggy), day/night (come on stefan, graal2001 had one!), make spells like levitation work, and things like forests and stuff WITHOUT monsters, going out in a forest with friends on an adventure would be great, also i like the idea of flowers and stuff on kingdom islands because kingdom isalnds need more stuff like special flowers, i mean come on these islands need stuff to make alot of people actually wanna get on them, and then kings/queens need to hold balls and such! and maybe a nice formal wedding.. maybe one day it could be like dark ages, i mean there are SO many huge places and each one has quite alot of people, i know hurumi has got some costume design ideas from them, maybe she should look at some more, hehe like the formal dresses. I'm really into Graal Kingdoms! I hope it lasts, i mean it's just now in beta and graal3d is coming. >_>

and things like forests and stuff WITHOUT monsters, going out in a forest with friends on an adventure would be great

Hmm, yeah, proper big forests and such would be good, also deserts. I think a big continent could be made or something, which could accomodate more things such as deserts, ice-caps, forests, rivers, etc...because as lovely as the idea of an archipelagos is, you can't really have a lot of variation all in that tiny space, and if you just built another island and covered it in desert or forest, noone would bother going there.

Also, i think if there was a big forest, then if it was big enough, i'd like there to be monsters here and there (possibly even say, a forest lord, or a drow or something, which sometimes can be found wandering around the forest that you can kill). Possibly my favourite level on Diablo 2 is the Dark Woods level, where like...as soon as you stray from the path, you're swamped by trees, and then out from the trees come like HUNDREDS of carvers and stuff, and skeleton archers and spearwomen ambush you. The whole idea of an ambush of monsters in a forest, and a big battle through the trees is elite!
Oh yeah, forgot i'm not supposed to talk about other games. Oh well ;P

ps. what did you post, crono? Pm me it or something if you dont want another post deleted, lol.

GK is too good and cheap.. needs more people.

There were enough idiots on Graal before.

And as for flowers being nonessential, deal with it. You got a bone thrown to you. Gnaw on it a while. At least it's SOMETHING. It shows that some people, like Hurumi, are doing some kind of work to make 2k2 a better place. Whinning about how flowers arent a big change isn't going to get anything done.

Yes and check out her clothes shop now. It's like the cutest clothes, even better then ones i have seen on Dark Ages! One is like this female apron thingy, another is like an angelic goddess, then there is awesome kimonos and samurai style and all kinds of great things. Lots of beautiful skirts too. The guys are kinda ugly though, i never saw a graal male body any good.

:P and i never said flowers would be a big change (wow, miracle..? xD) i was just hoping it will look fun/nice/watever, not like some revolutionary thing that will change our lives on GK. Heck no :P [i'm probably just a staff that does things to make GK more eye-pleasing..hm.]

o.o Crossdress? You can't crossdress on a game unless you have male head/female body or whatever. I'm roleplaying as the female which i write for and stuff, Willow Rulyan. I take the events which happen in some games, remake them, make stories out of them. I hate *****s such as yourself who can't read and understand such simple concept. And i posted other pictures of me too, o.o And of me talking to people. And me cooking! And me battling the true evil shell bomy and saaving the world. Or atleast that's what they think i did. ;)

TeRRi2k
07-04-2004, 10:24 PM
Even if he's a crossdresser, it doesn't matter. In fact, she's just trying to RP, and RPing gives you a chance to play a person/person with a personality that you normally wouldn't have, etc. Basically gender doesn't matter in games anyway. Because it's not like in real life and you can't tell for sure over the net. Anyway, it's not like he crossdresses irl. (but then if so, none of us know him irl so, no matter.)

Crono
07-04-2004, 10:57 PM
He was on the forums pretending to be a girl for months. No one liked "her" so then he made a new account and confessed everthing.

RPing as the opposite gender is a piss poor excuse to cross dress. I'd rather rp with a real female than a fake one, thank you very much.

Myukoi
07-05-2004, 12:10 AM
? It's no different then having to play as females in games like Silent Hill 3, your not a very good roleplayer if you think that you can only roleplay as "macho men" if you have a *****. *rolls eyes* Atleast hurumi actually has a brain.

I dont think it's that bad of an excuse. I just don't think it's that big of a deal at all.

Anyway, to whoever that thinks its a poor excuse...it's not like anyone is asking you to be friends with him. If you don't like him because he wears girl "sprites" then just stay away/dont pay attention to him. I have a friend named Shrimp who used to go around as a girl simply because he didn't like the guy sprites,hair,face,etc. Anyway it's only a game :rolleyes:

I have a friend named Shrimp who used to go around as a girl simply because he didn't like the guy sprites,hair,face,etc.

What happened to Shrimp anyways?

I have no clue, I got a new sn so I never seen him no more. *shrug* He just kinda quit graal and never came back I suppose.
