So now that DECA has said that they will be moving realm over to a new engine this will give DECA the opportunity to pretty much change anything in the game. It would be a waste if DECA would just port the game over without any changes as Unity will allow for so many more things. Things that would be impossible on flash realm. So here’s a sorta wishlist of mine (mods change the tag if it doesn’t fit) :
NOTE: Because I didn’t saw alot of discussion about the item changes that I posted I decided to turn that into its own topic.
lighting effects (EDIT: this would be a optional setting for people that don’t like this)
Do you remember that GHZD post on the subreddit were he showed an abbys where the lava would actually glow and emit light? Thats what this idea is about. Right now everything in the game has the same lighting which isn’t too athmospheric. Imagine if the torches, candles and windows in the game would emit light or if even lets say a lighting shot could light up the room or a ‘‘darkness’’ shot could dim the light around itself. This would make the game alot more visually interesting. Its a step away from the retro style but I think it would be step in the right direction. This would also allow for cooler gameplay mechanics. Imagine a dungeon thats completely covered in darkness beside your character holding a candle. Or even a day-night cycle, which brings me into my next topic.
The Realm’s could use a makeover
The way the current realms look is quite bad in my opinion, there isn’t much variation between areas and some look awful and lazy. the worst offenders of this is the beach (the spawning area) and the “mountains” aka Glands (the place where 90% of mid game happens). The beach looks awfully clumsy with it’s out of place wavy water animations and its 2 title nature. Compared to what we have seen in Beige’s (did I got the person right? sorry I don’t know for sure) Summer nexus the beach in the realm is both boring and hideous. The Godlands is a similar story with only 2 different titles and only 1 prop just lame. DECA could make the GodLands alot more interesting with a better enviorment and more diversity. Also a night and day cicle! One cool idea is to have the realms have lets say 10 minutes of day and night and 5 minutes of sunset/sundawn in between. It would also be cool if certain enemies would only spawn at night or day, for example, the Hobbit Mage could spawn at day while the Undead Hobbit Mage would spawn at night.
So, Could this be cool to see realized? Or am I an idiot for not thinking that the current version of realm is perfect and that these ideas will ruin the game.
