    Because I got some ideas.

    Like [​IMG]

    This sucks.

    Is it possible to get an invisible and invincible camera bot to run real-time random paths and stream it's camera? Also maybe have some in towns/bases.

    Edit: Sorry, just saw the wishlist forum. I thought I was safe when I Ctrl+F'd Suggestion and ideas.

    That's a really interesting idea actually. I'm sure you'd see all sorts of weird and wonderful things from time to time.

    Great idea, I didn't understand when I first read this thread, but it makes sense today :p

    Might be cool to have something like this on the main arkadia website for promotional purposes, so people could see what the game looks like in action.

    maybe start with something like a webcam. a quarry overview would give you a bit of an idea of activity and this kind of "web"-webcam would make it possible for players to see events live while they are at work or can´t play.

    I've always wanted more robust media tools to be able to film :)

    + rep to that idea, I bet it's just that MA hasn't introduced the tools to allow easier filming.

    Well, I don't know about in-house tools but if they could make a bot npc invisible and untargetable, all they'd need is livestream's procaster or some equivalent.

    A camera like that would need to be created by MA, however we can make a request for something like that and I do like the idea a lot. We have discussed here the idea of creating a web cam inside the game of specific locations like Celeste Harbour or Celeste Quarry. So I'd certainly encourage further discussion about the merits of such a system, how it might be implemented and what features are nice to have vs need to have.

    First I like the idea....but..as we all know not everything is fine everytime..ie the harrassment thing around Quarry lately...also sometimes the chats in Quarry for example run out of control...and yes I know it ´s the same in other games......so bot or something else maybe is the wrong way...
    but maybe someone from the A-Team is able to stream with a feature like Switch a few ours a day from ie Quarry...he can do it easy afk while working on our new clothes for example...standing still and stream with a half eye on the chat to make sure nothing strange is going on there what potential newcomers make afraid ....you could make a schedule on which day and time it will be streamed and announce it on the Arkadia Website....I know it wouldnt be the same as OP was asking for but it could be a start ;)

    I like the idea of several locations with static webcams you could switch the feed through from the arkadia website. Maybe in conjunction with a counter to show the number of people online at the time.

    Excellent idea OP

    Honestly i think this is kind of a waste we have so many players already doing streams that are pretty entertaining we just need more of that. I love watching star play especially when he's on Arkadia.

    Live feeds from a players perspective are definitely great to watch. I'd like a web cam that I can stream onto the big screen in the studio, maybe have multiple cams that cycle through or something.

    I like the idea, personally. I like Milena's suggestions, however I don't think you'd necessarily have to have the chat displayed in the cam.. Though that might be nice to check in on the conversations without being ingame.

    The biggest selling point of the cams streaming onto the Arkadia website would be to see if there's any activity in those places before logging in.

    Make an account at twitch.tv, download Xsplit (http://www.xsplit.com/) and start streaming. I have only done some teststreaming so far, but it works pretty good.

    the original idea was not about streaming gameplay.

    i like the webcam overview very much. here we have tv programms showing webcam feeds of cities, landscapes and winter sports resorts. it´s kind of a service where you can check the weather and see some activity, same goes for a cam in some prominent locations on Arkadia. you could check the weather :D on the homepage and know if it´s worth the time to advertise your services and stuff at this very location.

    my two pec

    MA was already developing something like that some years ago - they talk about a "video shade" at an expo.

    i would find the idea of a small driving around robot nice.

    some that looks neat and maybe it could even be lootable 2 times a day only at random times.

    if someone finds it and can shot it he can loot it.

    e.g. name the robot "bobby"

    sometimes it can have loots, at very seldom times maybe event items (alienware mouse) and sometimes it have a paper with a message for you.

    papermessage:
    "bobby says touch your nose =)"
    "bobby says clap your hands =)"

    "booby says greet a friend on your friendlist"

    also can give out fortune whishes and so on like the ones you get from fortune cookies.

    after someone shot the bobby you can repair him and he drives on. if you dont repair him in a certain time he be revived at a city and drives on :D

    also nice be if you can give him a message of yourself and choose the player he should bring the message.
    if the player is on the same planet like you he starts driving to the person and delivers the message :D

    people who not want to be distrubed by him could deactivate bobby messages in options so they be not available to him.

    :D
