COMMUNITY QUESTION: SEEDLING SCHEDULES

{AF]Allmighty Algae asks: "Can i have different daily routines that i can mix, match and string together how i want it? Can i create Weekly timetable style routines for each day of the week?"


We know we don’t manage to answer every question, but that doesn’t mean we don’t pay attention to them all - and indeed answer as many as we can! So today, let’s see if we can answer Allmighty Algae!


The schedule in one shape or another has been with SEED from the beginning it feels, and will play an important role in managing your Seedlings. Currently, the focus is on a daily routine, establishing that first, with a weekly schedule probably coming later.



Current in-game schedule, WIP



What is interesting about this version is that the player will not only manage their activities, but help their Seedlings grow and develop through the schedule feature. This will happen through the player specifying the location in which a Seedling should do their activities. This also will give rise to restricted areas or areas that not every Seedling is free to enter (you can’t just walk into a cinema for free in real life, and you probably can’t in Avesta either!).


So for example we have a Seedling who is working as a chemist, this is hard work and physically draining, the Seedling (let’s call her Xara) is in a bad mood and you as a player want Xara to remain working as a chemist but you need to schedule her some down time! You see that there is a free spot for a massage in two hours time, after her work, and you schedule her a visit to the parlour. Instead of a workout in the gym that evening, you schedule a relaxing time at home with a book. Xara, will live to see another (happy) Avestan day.


In the future we imagine we can schedule appointments, things that happen only once. And you could invite other Seedlings to take part in such appointments.
