    In light of the new Alpha 17 POI creator

    Maybe release the creator to your community and add Steam workshop integration to load different size plots for houses, arenas , shops, Utilities and such since they are already programmed sizes in Random Gen. You have a avid group of builders who would do wonders in this game.... Or maybe do a path like Rust does where they can be voted on or reviewed to be included in the game. Might be fast path to get tons of new POIs

    That is the plan. It just isn't quite time yet. Things still get messed up royally at major updates and while it isn't a huge deal here in the modding forum where dedicated modders understand that things will need to get fixed, for workshop it doesn't fly when every single prefab is broken with no telling whether someone will take the time to fix it. People who use workshop expect to be able to select a prefab and have it working in their game and not be derpy because some of the block ids changed from the last version.


    tldr; Alpha

    So what's the solution to that then?

    Anything not updated gets removed from the workshop?

    When itís not quite time for something to happen the only solution is to wait.

    Well regardless of when, it would be really great to have a full fledged in-game editor for prefabs.
    Better yet, when they solve the Texture room problem, would also be nice to be able to add our own textures.

    I'd love to have a wall with ponies and rainbows. ^_^"

    Thanks Roland for the response. And yeah I understand with every major update there have been major issues in the transition of world models. Just was playing some War of the Walkers mod and amazed at what the community is coming up with. Like Boxing Gyms, all sorts of houses, even malls. Would love to see these in vanilla someday.

    Roland has there actually been some talk about a Prefab Workshop or is it just chatter?

    That is seriously a great idea. Look at the Roller Coaster games, Sims, Spore... for example.

    The longevity of those games is definitely extended with player creations that are easy to share and download.

    Those who wait for something good does not wait in vain.
    And those who are waiting in vain, are not waiting for anything good.

    However, there is another solution.. And that is to do something else, rather then wait.

    Yes. It is definitely more than idle chatter. Workshop support for prefabs and whole designed maps (alternatives to Navezgane) are planned. I believe the Pimps themselves already have an alternate map that they started on back before random gen was created. It got tabled because between Navezgane and random gen that was all the time they had. But I could see them completing that new map later and making it available on workshop as an example for others.

    Oh Maps too huh? =o

    Never thought about that. That's fantastic.

    I can see that being a fun thing for PvP down the road.

    I'd love to create "Facing Worlds" in 7DTD.

    =)
