View Full Version : Saveable custom objects

06-11-2011, 09:31 PM
My idea is something like you make an object in a separate window using lots of little objects E.g custom vehicle, building that sort of thing.
Then when you start a new map you can then paste already custom made objects from your list into a different map instead of having to rebuild it again peice by peice. So its like making your own placeable items list aswell as having the shipped items.
I would only ever want this as an extra as this is not essential to the game atall.

I would like to hear your thoughts about this idea!

Hey LSTNITESKEBAB, I think that's a good idea and it has been mentioned in this thread:

I like this idea. Another idea would be to be able to make machines. For example, you can make a vehicle out of tires and stuff, then it can actually run. Like on Little Big Planet, you can make stuff thats actually interactive, I would like to see something along those lines in this game. Too much just still/static stuff

I agree. I can't tell you how many times I wished I could have saved objects from other maps I made that didn't make the cut, but had some elements worth keeping.

Just a thought... If it were possible to save custom objects that were made from existing pieces in the editor, How would they be downloaded by another user in Multiplayer?

Example: If I create a new piece and save it, it should now be it's own independent piece. If someone downloading my map doesn't have this piece in their inventory, how will the map load?

Also, if objects were combined to make one piece, would the finished object use less memory than the individual pieces used to make said item?

Just some food for thought.

I think Evil or one of the others had a similar idea in some feedback forums before FC2 was released.

I think his method was that once your custom structure was made you would somehow use a merge tool that would then make it a solid one piece item - to have an area for saving these constructions to share or use in other maps would be an excellent idea.

this was a good idea back in FC2. The ability to do this would be great and they should also allow you to upload created objects so that you can share them with the community and friends to expand great ideas and help others improve their skills at making maps.
