Note taking within the game

Post by DamienCassou »

Hi,

I can never remember if I'm done visiting a cave or if it was too hard. I would like to leave notes on the map. Here are different ways to satisfy my need, from simplest to implement to most complex:
  1. Click on the map to leave a flag;
  2. Same as above but make it possible to change the flag color;
  3. Same as above but also make it possible to write some text;

Excellent suggestion.

Unless it's quite a complex task to make the map interaction with touch inputs on phones.

On a PC version, I am sure this would have been easy to implement.

This would be really handy. Maybe a journal or diary to take notes in as well..

I've long wished for a way to add text to my saves too if that's a possibility..

I like the flags, tho..you could also use them as "traffic signals" to mark dead ends or access points in tricky areas or mark where you found a significant object, etcetera..

Maybe obtain the flags via a quest early on in the game?

Great idea ~ it's on my wish list

Nice idea. I sometimes drop small rocks as such a flag, but added with a free text message would be much better

This would be handy. It might be a lot of work to implement it though.

I like this. I like to be able to write something about the hero I am playing with. Since I come from MOO/MUD, RPG is a big thing when I play game, so I need to write something about the hero I am playing. Is he a noble knight? Is he a good-hearted thief with wrong choice of crowds? Is he a pragmatic fighter? And so on. It can reminds me in with all the choices I am making in the game for them heroes (even if it means I am missing some quests or very cool items).

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer here, but I just add my notes to a separate notes app. I think this is a good idea but I chalk it up to: do you want this to be worked on or do you want new content? And I'll pick new content.

I don't think anyone is asking for this idea to be implemented immediately. It is an idea to enhance game play, to give a better playing experience, which in and of itself can be as important as new contents. However, that is besides the point. Players simply gives suggestion what can enhance their playing experience, because there is room to give suggestion. At the end of the day, the dev decides what the immediate priority should be.

The flags could be sold by merchant or other NPC, & "planted" wherever the player wants to, as opposed to marking the map(keeping it simple).

I'm assuming the text & journal options might be somewhat more complex to implement, but it is a cool idea.
