It's raining, why can't I spend my money to keep my suit dry?
Umbrella availability is null on Gold and above as far as I can tell and that'd be a great start, but I'd like to see this taken to a more luxurious level for those of us in more privileged positions. Perhaps a hover umbrella that projects a halo of light that keeps acid rain away, could be based on the NLM Eyepod code potentially.
To protect the material objects I hold so dear to my heart.
Insurance is a good racket and I imagine that even in 2098 it'll still be profitable. I think those citizens of Withmore that have an actual address on Gold, Green and above should be able to insure certain types of belongings to protect them from unexpected accidents or theft. I would naturally consider Red to be an uninsurable zone and having a verifiable address to "garage" your property would be a prerequisite.
Because sometimes it's more fun to lose my money in a big way than earning it slowly.
I'd like to see more gambling options expanded and Deathball opened up to more than just the mixers on Red or brave/gambling addict corpies that brave the gangers to go place a bet.
Perhaps casino gambling has no place in Withmore, perhaps it's better suited for Vegas. I've had a few ideas for this and here's just a couple to open a dialogue.
Initially only accessible by NeoTrans flight.
Separate currency from Withmore with bad exchange rates to Chyen.
Designed to be a temporary destination with a focus on expensive short-term gambling/business trips.
Because I'm far too important to put myself in danger.
This skill is in the game but the availability for players to get their hands on gear isn't as far as I know. As a corpie I wouldn't walk into a dangerous situation, I'd send a synthetic to represent me, after all, being dead means I can't swim in my money anymore.
Dress to impress.
I so prefer custom tailored clothing objects and I would hate to bring any focus away from that but when it comes to suits and corpie accessories they're pretty sterile yet sophisticated. Perhaps the mallplex could feature a Business Wear store that focuses on earth tones and men and women's suits and suit accessories while combining Epoch and La.Mode's inventory as the fashion-focused alternate.
I'll keep adding to this as I think of things, thanks for reading.
Because I should be able to snap some pictures, watch tv or feed, and lock the device like an e-note.
I'm too rich to worry about being ejected out of an aerodyne without a struggle.
I'm getting old and Super Happy Fun Land just makes me feel it.
How about some strategically placed attractions whether it's simply a park on Blue, or a monument on Green or Gold that has a lot of ambiance, don't forget the no Mixer signs.
We have them, might be a good idea for the corporation lobbies.
I'm worth too much money to spend more than five minutes standing around a receptionist trying to get their attention.
I'm too rich to go to the bank
I want to put my money in a box and lock it no more than five feet away from where I sleep. Might be a good addition to Secure_Tech and would need to be crackable.
This shit dies before I get it home
If cigarettes aren't killing people anymore I want my plants to extract moisture out of the air and water themselves. Make it possible to add them as an object to the room such as a painting? It always feels better to have a fancy blue item in your description rather than writing it in yourself.
The price of clones is too damn LOW!
Make it so I don't forget that when I die, it's more than an inconvenience, it's death and that should be expensive to recover from.. Relatively speaking.
Because I want the option to fly out the top of this prison and get some fresh air
It's bad enough I have to pay extra to get it piped to my living room, I want to stretch the legs of my aerodyne and go see the ocean. Besides, I'm rich, if I can't risk flying above a wasteland and getting shot down by a RPG and ransomed back to the corporations then I don't know what the hell to do with my time.
Or rather a mutual fund
Let's put to use the second floor of the Bank and perhaps limit it to individuals with corporate sponsorship. It could function like a 401K, you put money in and it randomly increases or decreases at regular intervals. This could play off of Trading Skill, and the Luck stat. Like any mutual fund or 401K you'd need a penalty for making withdrawals or simply limit it to a single withdrawal in a thirty day period. If I'm a businessman I should have more use for the trading skill than trading on markets that only persist in sectors I don't belong on.
New Light Lenses
Because in 2014, Google Glass sucked
It took 84 years for them to perfect it. Fuck the Progia-13, I want this on my FACE so I don't need to hold it in my hand, my hands are for making money and making love; while I'm filming it on my New Light Lenses.
Technology can be classy too
For those of us that don't want to look like rampant alcoholics with fully stocked mini-bars in our homes. I want technology. e.g, Aliens Resurrection alcohol cubes.
English, do you speak it, motherfucker?
This may not be for corpies specifically but it applies none the less. There are certain things such as *hic* that should be visible to the drunk person to give them an idea of whats going on, drunk people may not know they're slurring like crazy all the time but they certainly notice things their body does most of the time unless you're already starting to black out. And perhaps a script that functions like the Drug Withdrawal scripts to encourage and notify someone that they should be RPing appropriately their intoxication.
Dying for or from Rikken McChikken?
Also not corpie specific but I'd like to see it happen. Let's say we had to eat not only to keep our fatigue regeneration high, but to stop a very slow decay of our current HP at a high level of starvation. In the past I've noticed that a lot of people have chosen isolation to rid themselves of socially challenging situations such as high PDS or drug withdrawal symptoms. Hunger would force people to come out, if only briefly to satisfy a very natural urge without making it seem like a huge micromanage-y kind of feature. Let's be honest, healthy people don't need to eat 3-4 times a day like most games with hunger seem to suggest, once or twice a day to avoid the effects of going hungry shouldn't be a big deal.
This could also open up new doors in the badlands such as scavenging for foods. With that being said. Right now anyone with a meager investment of stats can survive without more than a sip or two of water on long desert hauls, this is also very much alleviated by the renal replacement and now with the addition of water consumption management to the Xo5 environmental suit it makes it even easier to live forever out there without the need to restock your supplies.
Water consumption raised severely considering how many ways we have to reduce it and with the addition of hunger and scavenging to desert tiles it'd add a new dynamic and challenge to what is supposed to be a very deadly place to venture out in.
Cortex Bomb Killswitch
The famed doublecross
Right now as far as I know this is currently done by admin intervention. Honestly if a corpie solo wants to get the big payout from the guys with all the money certain guarantees should be expected such as remotely detonated cortex bombs as insurance. I don't care if I can identically roll over in bed and blow their brains up, it should be possible and would be quite fitting if you ask me.
I might be blind.
Do corpies not purchase wallets? If they do, where do they buy them? I might be missing them like a blind bastard but I haven't been able to find them on Gold or Green.
If those dirty mixers are gonna keep killing each other, let's put it on TV
How about some obstacle courses based on shows like Wipe out, existing code could satisfy this type of staging.
These fuckers out of business or something?
Can we tie in Acme deliveries to The Food-O-Matic vending machines? I think they're just taking up space right now, I wouldn't mind some cup-o-noodles while i'm plugging away at the office.
Corpie women aren't like mixer whores, you need to spend a little more for the gates to open
Cordoba Mallplex has space, how about a jewelery store, there's a diamond engagement ring out there but I'll be damned if I'll marry away half my fortune, and that damn naked jewelry bitch keeps spamming me at the mag-lev. May as well make a store of it and have the items add some flashy color to your @desc
No, sir, we aren't responsible for your tumble off the 8th floor.
It might be practical for NLM to install some safety nets like in Heaven along the perimeter of the NLM roof so it's not a death trap/, it makes sense from an IC/Theme sense for NLM to avoid liable/safety claims.
Alternative entry to the Korova
Juicy Vee's mixer haven, this way!
Honestly, I just don't want to rub elbows with mixers while they stink up our elevators, can the the Korova have a dedicated elevator entrance on the east/west side of NLM and make secure the lobby entrance? I feel like I could be jumped in the hallways of my own workplace at any point.
Security is lax at NLM that's for sure.
We bet money too.
I covered this under gambling but I feel like it deserves it's own section... Deathball is a corporate entity with a broadcast contract with NLM and major corporations have teams playing in the league, it'd only make sense for corpies to be able to go to a local club and place bets, perhaps in the VIP room of the Korova so people have to pay the fee, pay money for the convenience of not having to risk my life on Red? Sure.
