suggestions for the winter event 2020

- something like the sandcastle stuff on Risa, but with snowmen. there is no more snow where I live, and I would like to make snowmen (thx to the global warming) :p
- a terrain park to use at their full potential the frosted boots : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrain_park (no rewards, just for the fun :p)
- I don't know if this is possible, but that would be cool, if snowfalls were added to the map, currently the map is not very welcoming, Christmas trees would be a great addition too.
- addition of a new "mission" , personally i don't do the races, they are just boring, something else more funny would be awesome.

edit: in fact there are snowfalls, but almost invisible, snowflakes should be more visible and big.

    Time travelling Breen from the future sneak into Q's Winter Festival demanding to be compensated for all their ships Q has given away.

    Festive ship vanity shields, maybe one with tartan/plaid. I've tried suggesting it for a few years now.

    This years is so disappointing for both winter/summer events. We do need to delete the old ones that people don't want and start doing new ones.
    Ice skating sounds fine for what about other winter sports like skiing or at least give people the ability to use skis similar to using floaters in Risa. normal-2.gif​​

    What if I want them all to stay or to be combined in some form? That is what you want, do not know if it is what the Winter Event needs though or what other people want.

    • Revamp the competitive race to be a sled race (on Q thrones)
    • Give Q somewhere to sit (ice throne! Lore for the sled race: we're finding a use for outdated spares)
    • Add one more mini-activity to the gingerbread area (still feels underutilized). Ex. making gingerbread houses (mechanics from Risa's sandcastles) to provide habitat (in lore) for tiny gingerbread tardigrades
    • Allow an optional away team of 1 Boff (it's the holidays! Let us bring the family)
    • Add a mini transporter (Nimbus style) between gingerbread area and Q's pavilion
    • New pet: Lt. Tardigrade with a Santa hat
    • New non-combat activity: compile a wish list for all the adoption agency baby tardigrades, determine "naughty/nice" status in a report to Q

    a weapon pack of ap and tricobalt with a fire proc.
    a weapon pack of polaron and Transphasic with a cold proc.
    a advanced/set version of the above.

    if I stop posting it doesn't make you right it. just means I don't have enough rum to continue interacting with you.

    Has nothing to do with Winter though except the second one but only loosely.

    the first is the Fek'Ihri weapon types, since thats whose ships we're getting now, makes sense to get thenm though the winter event
    the second is breen weapon types. I trust I don't have to explain why that goes with the winter event.
    the third is more of the above.

    Just brainstorming for upcoming events.
    Here's my original reddit post - Ideas for 2020 winter event.
    Nanopulse Kar'takin Pole-arm melee weapon (purple)

    its already in game for npcs, so why not add it, and add a glow.



    Winter/Christmas holiday shield vanity.

    Blue/silver, mostly red/some green, mostly green/some red, multi-colored light bulb dots that twinkle, all done in the breast cancer awareness vanity style.

    Snow trail impulse vanity

    Starlight white to gold to silver deflector vanity



    Jem'hadar Winter is Life sweater

    Romulan Tal Shiar knows if your are naughty sweater

    Q Judges outfit in red and green

    Q Jr cloned Neelix doffs for entertainer, bartender, and chef

    After their run-in on Voyager, Jr has found a new appreciation for Neelix and has made clones copies for his festive friend for the holidays.


    Targ Fur earmuffs 'visor'.

    Blue fed color variant.

    Red KDF ones.

    Green romulan ones.

    Purple Jem'hadar ones.

    And golden bronze ish color Cardassian ones.


    Great ideas from other on reddit.
    Wesley sweaters

    Terran Ornament ear rings. Andorian Sleigh Bells worn like the Risa Flower accessories, no sound though that'd get annoying quick.

    Adding my own suggestion of adding Christmas Decorations and a big X-Mas Tree to First City, New Command, ESD and DS9 (DS9 for the Jem'Hadars)

    How about upgrading the nanopulse weapons so they can be upgraded. That would be nice.

    Even nicer would be making variations of them that cost all the normal ornaments plus the dil/marks/ec/elite marks of the Vulcan Mind-Meld Device so we can have the Nanopulse gubbins that complete the currently-actually-usable melee weapon set.
    Glory to you, and T6 Novas to your House, QAPLA'!

    I've long wished the timed Ice Race against other players had long been converted to using Ice Boot's and allow skating, jumping, and it be nice to add a few Terrain Park elements but wouldn't have to. I was always surprised since this run takes place on Ice that starts at the top of a hill, you couldn't use your Ice Boots, or they allowed you to use a Luge or Skeleton. At the Bottom they could have you fall into a pit of warm water, where your required to climb out of and skate the rest of the way. With a few new obstacles like Snowconians or Snowborg shooting Snow or Candies or even Scented Gas that distract or slow you down.

    I'd also love to see a second type of Ice Boots one that allows Skates, and perhaps another that allows Cross Country Skies.

    I really wish they would allow or revamp the two Ice Races to allow you to use the Ice Skates during the race. It also be nice if you could Cross Country Ski on snowy surfaces to move around a bit faster at least on flat or downhill surfaces.

    I once posted an idea like that 2-3 years earlier however and never really seen much done. I mean the Gingerbread Village was the most recent update we've had or change and that was years ago now. I'd love to see an update to Winter/Summer with some new missions, tasks, or whatever.

    How about Curling? not only would it be fun, but it would be a challenge for the Devs to code

    Yea I forget about the Ice Fishing... Ice Fishing:*

    Still much of the comments and suggestions are still valid, I'd just really love to see a Skate, Skeleton, or Luge style course or even a Terrain Park style event! It wouldn't even require changing the existing map, as they could create a course on Andoria or the Klingon Penal Colony, sort of another TFO like the mini gingerbread globe at the table.

    I'd love a new event however... ...particularly that use the Ice Boots!

    There enough of the snow fighting games. <3

    NOTE: This isn't a double post, only appears after my post above, because a Moderator combined this thread, with a nixie50 post. B)

    more hats and also snow boots.

    If an other "mission" added one day, please don't make an other fight mission. After a moment, all these fights become really annoying.

    seriously?

    honestly something I'd prefer over those would be proper winter gloves, be they padded gloves with fingers or just mittens. 3 degree celsius is about the coldest I'm willing to go without gloves IRL if I got a choice and I'm a finn so I'm used to the cold climate (at least relative to California), so I wonder why my character has to go gloveless in sub-zone tempetures or with gloves that are so thin they're not really suited for the climate only exception atm is the DSC rep uniform gloves being avaible with winter gear or use a EV suit (or armor that should be an EV suit but isn't for some reason like the MACO armor).

    I'd like to see not only a ski jump, but an expanded map with cross-country skiing, snow-mobile races and tracks, the luge as was brought up above, building your own snow-man to help in the snow-ball fights, etc. Maybe add in sleds and a sledding hill.

    How about some Christmas decorations on Risa and Christmas swimsuits since not everyone celebrates it in freezing cold conditions.
  • sennahcheribsennahcherib Member Posts: 2,823 Arc User
    i like very much the enviro-jacket; next year could you add in the store an enviro-jacket short, like the winter-jacket. thx

    We've wanted downhill skiing for so many years now. I fear it's just too difficult. A snowboard park for the pvp race might be easier. They could simply modify the current course with more obstacles and have the boots convert to snowboard effect instead of skate effect. We don't see the skates as it is and wouldn't necessarily need to actually see the snowboard.

    I would like to see them eliminate the cones event but keep the gingerbread village and use it for something else. Snowman and sculpture making might work.

    yes, that would be cool. cones of conduit is the worse mission, most of the time, there aren't enough players, and most of the players don't know what to do, + it is really boring. I would prefer 2 short missions instead of this long mission.

    snowman sculpture would be awesome.

    Even on failure cones often gives more trinkets than a successful run of snowman hunter.

    Therein lay the problem though; not everyone celebrates Christmas. There is nothing about the Winter Wonderland that makes direct reference to Christmas.

    Whether right or wrong, I'd assume that the Devs have chosen to err on the side of caution and respect the fact that some ethnicities and/or religions don't celebrate/acknowledge Christmas.
  • sennahcheribsennahcherib Member Posts: 2,823 Arc User
    well christmas is celebrated all over the world, not only in christian countries; in my family we are all atheist and we celebrate christmas (christmas trees etc) without the religious stuff.

    Again, there are many who don't celebrate, or acknowledge, it in any way, shape, or form for various reasons.
