I was just doing my thing and I heard the musical notes of an ice cream truck in the neighborhood. It stirred some good thoughts.
And since City of Titans is always foremost on my mind, I immediately thought of how cool it would be if there was an ice cream truck in Titan City. It makes its rounds throughout the entire city, randomly would be best, but an established route would be just fine. Besides ice cream for the kids It also sells consumables for heroes and might have other uses like providing clues to missions (an investigation mission can obtain one clue at most from the ice cream man but a clue can be obtained for any investigation), or who knows what. Additional capabilities can be added or removed as the game matures.
Players would never know where the ice cream truck ever is, but I am imagining the little thrill that players would get when we hear those dulcet tunes heralding the approach of THE ice cream truck. Or imagine fast traveling across the city and you hear the tune.
I think little unique bits of flavor like this can really help make the city seem alive.
Gabby Cabby could be another one. Who knows what Gabby Cabby could provide?
Does anyone else have any other ideas for unique additions of flavor to the city?
I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.
