Tagged: roleplay; storylines
I am not one to worry generally but as a long time player, it has started to bother me. I log on at the hospital and there is almost no traffic in during the times I am on. Some of the other doctors say the same. We have a few people throwing events on sim (Thank goodness for Loz and even Valmont, another guy that goes out of his way to try to keep storylines going with players) but the rest of the businesses sit empty. And I'll be honest, when I log in and there's not much going on, it sort of kills my motivation and I end up going back to RL to play video games. Which only further contributes to the slowness of Hathian. (I think we all have been doing this to an extent)
I guess the point of this thread is to try to put my head together with other leads to see what we can do together? What can be done differently? And maybe Nadir could chime in on if he has any plans to spur things along. I know he has spoken about a rebuild and those do seem to help. I don't know if any of my suggestions would lead to anything but some thoughts I think that could help includes:
-Promotion of HPD activity.
-Encouraging more gangs and criminal RP.
-Refresh businesses by posting inactive/empty lead spots so that the community can apply with fresh ideas.
-Encourage more storylines from non-lead community members. I always tell my staff at HGH that I don't have to lead your stories. I'll support whatever you bring to me. I think the same mentality needs to be applied to all businesses and the sim as a whole.
-Fresh builds if possible.
-Reduced land rates could also bring back in the community. (Lots of land open last I checked.)
What else could work? Let's find something and get together! Maybe a new lead meeting soon?
