Noob question, I think.

10 replies 219 views Edited Sep 23, 2013

Is there a thread asking for.. not so much a wish-list, but ideas on how to improve Home?  I have a few ideas, and I'm curious if any of this would actually reach the higher-ups? 

 

Here's a couple things, I have, for example:

1 - being able to interact with your "pets" - throw a stick for a dog, toss a steak for your tiger/lion, laser pen with your cat. 

1a - Letting other people interact with them as well

1b - letting them off their 3-point turn loop.. wander around the space, but being able to call them back to you, etc, to reactivate it.

1c - naming your own animals once you've bought them (within sensible limits)

1d - customization; essentially skin-changing. For example, with the Dogs, there are many varieties of breeds out there. Why not have a "skin chooser" when you buy an animal to choose exactly what it looks like. 

 

2 - loopable spaces. A space that is seemingly infinite. A forest would be a good way to do it. Something where you don't have a boundary, but can wander and get lost. Something like this would, in my opinion, be fun.. as long as it's not obvious when the loop restarts. 

granted, my ideas may not be easily programmed, but it was just an idea :smileyhappy:

Basically what you're telling me is...

 

You wants The Sims 3/ The Sims 3: Pets features in PS Home?

I wouldn't know - I don't play the Sims; but if they have that, then probably. LOL

None of those could probably be implimented into home w the companions. They would have had to beencoded that way from the begining. There has been a few items and spaces that have been retroactively updated to add new features to them. That probably will not happen for companions. Its probably not  possible for a looped space given that home is a 3D environment w chat. Maybe w another version of home it might be possible for the space like you would like to see. Home is taxing in itself for the ps3. Hope that helps.

Though I doubt that your ideas can be implimented into Home as it stands now, who knows about the future? Maybe copy and paste your post in our official monthly suggestion thread. It certainlt wouldn't hurt to do so. And Developers do use some of our ideas.

They do have some robotic and I think maybe other pets (dogs and cats) that you can use in your personal space and can interact with them not sure but I believe they are from juggernaughts. I had a friend that had a robotic dog that you could use your R1 options such as point and they go to their houses. And your guest can also interact with them. I know its not exactly what you wanted but its a start.
