(Hey Poptropicans! This is a guest post written by Perfect Sky, a Poptropica player who’s also quite active in the community. In this post she’ll be sharing her ideas for New Pop. Enjoy! –🐠)
Hey everyone, it’s Perfect Sky!
So, with the year coming to an end and the New Poptropica on its way, I thought now would be a good time to share some features I’d love to see added to the game. I’m not going to cover the basics such as new islands or more multiplayer games and chat options, since most of us have already heard those many times. Instead, I’m going to list the top 5 ideas I have, aside from common ones that everyone’s been talking about. Well, let’s begin!
5. Returning Costumes
Although lots of members like to buy every single item in the store, I prefer to only buy costumes I like enough to wear. However, I’ve made the mistake of buying something simply because it’s new, then realizing I’d get no use out of it shortly after. At least for me, it gets annoying to have my inventory cluttered up with costumes I would never wear.
As for non-members, whether you clicked the wrong button and accidentally bought something you didn’t intend on buying, or just don’t like an item anymore, a feature to return items back to the store would be very useful. But, whether you’d get all your credits back or not would be up to the creators. (Perhaps they could give full refunds if it’s very recent, which would be helpful for misclicks, and partial refunds for up to a certain amount of days.)
4. See who friended you back
One great feature we currently have in the game is how you can add friends without them having to add you back. It just makes the process so much easier. But what about those moments when you start feeling a little curious and just sit there for a while, staring at your friends list, wondering which of your friends actually added you to their lists? Just kidding, I totally don’t that…
But it would be pretty cool if we could actually see which of our friends added us. Whether that would be some kind of star on their profile, or just a separate friends list for people who added you back, it would be nice to see.
3. Custom Photos
Ever since the addition of the Photo Booth, I always wished I could save custom photos to the photo album on my profile. It would be a fun way to make our profiles more personalized. And, it would be even better if we could add our own captions to the pictures. Of course, the pictures and captions would have to be approved before appearing in the photo album, similar to how Realms need to be approved before becoming public.
This feature would most likely be members-only, but it would still be cool.
2. Seasonal Multiverse Rooms
After so many years of creating and joining Multiverse rooms, the same old settings become pretty boring. But rather than just adding a few new rooms, it would be much more exciting if the Creators mixed things up a bit by making different seasonal Multiverse rooms, in addition to the current ones.
In the winter, we could hold parties in snowy, Christmas-themed rooms, and in the summer, beach party rooms would be available. Preferably, this feature would provide three additional multiverse rooms for each of the four seasons.
1. Gifting Credits
If you’re a member, then you’ve definitely noticed how the credits keep piling up, and there’s absolutely nothing to do with them.
Honestly, the idea of gifting credits to other players is probably the feature I’d love to see added to the game most. Many virtual worlds provide options for players to give their friends presents, but Poptropica doesn’t have any similar features. Rather than letting the credits go to waste, it would be great if we could gift credits to our friends. And with Christmas coming up, this would be the perfect time for a gifting feature.
Well, that’s all for this list. Fell free to share your ideas in the comments below!
