The YoWorld Podcast Episode 47 FEEDBACK THREAD

Postby Viking Jess » Thu Jun 23, 2016 1:43 pm

Hey YoFans,

This week on the YoWorld Podcast, Jacob and Trevor sit down (but not still!) to talk about all the fun happenings in YoWorld. It's a high-energy episode filled with lots of information, lots of silliness, and all kinds of work for our poor sound guy. *Insert sound effect here*

Have a grand ol' time with us and listen in by clicking HERE

Mad YoLibs!
On the last episode of the YoWorld Podcast, we asked YoFans to submit words for Mad YoLibs! This is one segment you're going to want to listen in for. Hilarity abounds!


Player Questions
When doing Avenue releases --In the future , can we please think about doing animated car's,bike's,scooter's,tank's or whatever goes down the street or up the street to give things a more realistic look for that avenue?(kinda what ya did with the spaceship from the space theme) is what i'm talking about,,the movement of it - Crystal
Interesting idea! We'll consider it, we just have to be conscious of reusability :)

Can you possibly integrate an enter button in auction house? Like after we type something in the search bar, we can hit enter instead of having to click on it with our mouse, and same with budding that pesky little side bar is always in the way having to remove it before we can actually submit a bid - Mojo
Did you know Mojo is a lovely rhubarb wheat beer brewed at Forked River Brewery in London, Ontario? To answer your question - we do plan to overhaul the auction house at some point in the future. This feedback will be considered when we get there!

I know this is late saying this, but the birthday thing was great timing because today (june 10th) is actually my birthday! I am no longer in my 20s as of today! - Rollercoaster Goth
Welcome to the 30s club! According to Jacob, 33 will be the best year of your life :)

If Puffin goes through China, how about Photon? - Toink Toink
Unfortunately, if it's a product that we don't make, we can't make any guarantees as to its security. We can't know everything about everything on the internet :(

My question is...Is there anyway possible for the floor arrows to show thru the floor tiles? - grammy dy
This is a bit of a controversial problem. Some players would rather they not show at all. We might have to look into other solutions!

Can we adjust our name tag on our own to go above our head? Maybe make it smaller? I found that when I tried on my mermaid tail my name covered it. Maybe the name can go below when you're wearing a ride so it won't cover the ride? - StarshaSparklesHTC
We'll be looking into the option to turn nametags off at some point in the future! We can't guarantee it'll be possible but we'll look.

Will there be a special Viking coming in for Episode 50? - Toink Toink
Maybe!

I am just wondering if layering issues will ever be solved? Some windows, you can't put curtains on, they all go behind and some floor tiles, we can't put rugs on top of them - Queenie YDL
Layering is a headache sometimes. We've made vast improvements and we plan to keep trying to improve, but to adjust things like that we would have to rewrite the game entirely.

Mr Jacob I ask kindly again.. Will we ever get our building materials in the depot to make our self builds easier, especially roofs.. roof tiles and roof beams? - Queenie YDL
It's on our list for when we have time at some point in the future :)

Why are there avenues that are only coming out with two arrows when certain ones can definitely have more then two, perhaps even four, like the undersea avenue, the ocean avenue, etc? - Anthony
It's a design choice, and it can also cause some connection troubles. We'll keep an eye out for more opportunities to have four connections going forward.

Can you make a way to be able to store clothes hats etc like we do furniture?
And can you create a button in the store one for cash items and one for coin like we have in the auction house.
- Mojo
Neat suggestion! It would be a big back-end and UI change, but we'll keep it in mind for the future.

BVG!

According to the History Channel. Vikings never wore horned hats!
- Thursday Soleil
There was one, according to Jacob, named Greg who wore a horned hat.

Question>Would it be possible to get free yc boxes instead of free items? Free up the staff a bit so their free to do free yc boxes that would free their minds from the hassle of all the free items...chuckle.... :D - April
We've done it before... So maybe!

Note to sound guy-in need of some sound effects in podcast! - April
Poor sound guy.

:thumbsup: That's exactly what i was talking about Trevor with the moving placeable car's,truck's,scooters,ect. Just to make it look like traffic going on.:) but yes would be cool placeables that move across the screen. :thumbsup:

Also Thank you for sending out the T-shirts--- sorry about the marker issue :love: :hug:

Question: Can we please discuss either changing the contest winning catagory to Beginner,Expert,Pro so
beginners can have a chance at winning a design or decorating contest?Or whatever the vikings can come up with for
beginner designers/decorators? Not all of us have the tools the pro's use and makes it limited to the peeps that enter.

For the 50th Podcast--I'd like to hear from our very own Greg Or Gary. Been a long time since Mr.Gary's been on podcast. :hug:

I have a question in conjunction with grammy dy's question you have answered:
My question is...Is there anyway possible for the floor arrows to show thru the floor tiles? - grammy dy

Is it possible that you could make it so we can enable and disable this in settings, seeing as how some people want the arrows to show through tiles and others don't?

Listening to the podcast now...They were talking about the question of making floor tiles so the arrows would show through. It was mentioned that some people want that feature of covering the arrows. May I suggest a purchasable arrow (like a marker) that we can buy to place where the original arrow is if the player wants a location marker...even if it's just a smaller version. When I cover the arrows and I'm not sure I'll remember where the arrows are, I purchase the vertical small neon bars from the "Totally 80's" theme....for that matter....anything can be used...(some people just don't like Easter Eggs laying around on their floor... hhahahaahh) :haha:

Greg Hornson :haha: :haha: :haha: :silly:

Thanks to the Mighty Greg Hornson for all of his conquests and contributions that have echoed down through the ages and inspired the Iconic Horned hat.

*raises fists full of cooked meats in homage* (we wouldn't want you to offend)

Now that this is settled. :drink:

The 50th should include 50 highlights from the past Podcasts. 50/50 raffle. 50 card pick up ( could be a game with postcards :D)
Where in the course of a podcast 50 postcards are drawn and receive small prizes.

I think 50th podcast Yoversary could have some Golden elements ... since 50 is golden.

IDK >.< I am just thrilled you guys stuck with it and give us a fun and informative podcast. TY!
