    Since they keep on making new Pocket God threads, I remembered I wrote down these old ideas and thought I'd stick 'em here for discussion.

    Xiao's Pocket God Ideas Version 2.5!

    Idea / Tool
    New Gameplay Element
    Bug Fix
    Adjustment

    1. Toolbar
    An icon located on the top right brings up the toolbar on the right, which has many different tools that you can use against the islanders, like the ones listed below. I know it works so nicely without it, but eventually you're going to need it. Have you press the toolbar button once to bring it up, select a power, then press the toolbar button again to deselect your power.

    1. Swarm
    Unleash a deadly swarm of insects on the islanders. Use the touch screen to control where the storm flies, and when the flies touch the islanders, they get eaten alive and all that is left is a tiny islander skeleton!

    2. Black Hole
    Create a black hole anywhere on the screen that sucks the islanders in. Have them cling onto the island and each other before being sucked up!

    3. God Fist
    Smack and punch your islanders around when in this mode. (Check out Interactive Buddy, a flash game, for reference on how this would work.) Punch them into each other, out into the sea, into a black hole, whatever.

    4. Death by Finger
    Okay so the title sounds kind of wrong. Anyways, touch an islander and it will instantly die, leaving a little islander ragdoll on the map (complete with X eyes) for you to throw around, use the accelerometer to fling it around and etc.

    5. Explosion
    Wherever you touch explodes. BIG FUN. If you touch near an islander, they will be sent flying. If you touch ON an islander, they will be blown to bits! If you touch under an islander, they will be blown up into the sky.

    6. Re-animator
    Touch a islander to turn it into a ravaging zombie islander, who will then attack the other islanders and attempt to bite them. If they are bitten, they too will turn into a zombie! Watch the chaos unfold.

    7. Comet
    Touch somewhere and there will be a slight delay. The island will start to shake slightly and suddenly a comet will come flying from outer space and land where you touched, crushing any islanders below.

    8. Drop Damage
    Have it so that when you drag and islander to the very top and let him fall, he hits the ground in a more satisfying way. Preferably, he gets blown to pieces by the fall. This could be done in a cartoony, not too violent way, like Team Fortress 2. This shouldn't be a tool, just a correction.

    9. Shark (IMPLEMENTED)
    Add a shark to the water that will eat any islanders unlucky enough to find themselves taking a dip. Have the shark pull them under and a little bit of red rise in the water.

    10. Cling
    Like the drop damage, this wouldn't have to be an added tool, but rather just an added feature in the regular mode. When you are dragging an islander in midair and you drag him over another islander, have him grab onto the other islander for support, creating a chain of islanders that you're holding onto. (The best example is The Force Unleashed)

    11. Freeze
    Touch a islander to freeze him. He will be frozen in ice. Then switch to your regular finger and toss him in the water and he'll float. Or perhaps use Molten and he'll melt. Or use your God Fist and smash him into little pieces.

    12. Molten
    Touch, and as long as you keep your finger on the area, molten lava will pour from the touching spot. Burn up some islanders! Pour enough into the sea and it will become hot water which will burn the islanders.

    13. Scapegoat
    Touch an islander and he will become the "scapegoat", and all the other islanders will attack him.

    14. Coconut (IMPLEMENTED)
    This isn't a tool but a slight mod. During an earthquake, have the coconuts from the palm trees fall and split open on the ground or on an islander's head.

    15. Killer Statue
    Bring the statue to life and watch it as it rampages about, smashing islanders left and right!

    16. Slice
    Draw a line that will slice whatever is in it. Cut up the palm tree, chop a islander anyway you see fit.

    17. Tsunami
    A tsunami rushes over the island, leaving some islanders on the ground and others swept away by the sea.

    18. War
    Draw a circle. Whatever islanders are in this circle will declare war on any islanders you did not select within the circle. Watch as the islanders duke it out (and perhaps intervene as you see fit)

    19. Female Islander
    Be able to add a female islander and other islanders will flirt with (complete with little heart icons) and perhaps even fight over?

    20. Gravity Fix
    This is just a slight adjustment to the accelerometer usage. Have all islanders eventually come back down after they've fallen up. For example, if you tilt up and they fly up and you tilt back down within 5 seconds, the islander lands in the foreground and blows to bits at the height of the fall. If you wait more than 5 seconds, the islander lands in the background by the volcano (and may go into the volcano just like when you toss them)

    21. Weather Fixes
    Have it so that the multitouch is no longer a problem when using the lightning. Also, when you drag the islanders above the thunder cloud, the sky is blank and strange. Fix that.
     
  2. that's a serious list !

    well done !

    Amazing ideas! Hopefully the devs of Pocket God will take these into mind, and maybe use some of them (if not all :D).

    Wow, it's creative ideas like these that finally convinced me to buy Pocket God a few weeks ago. The devs actually listening was the other reason.

    That's why I love this platform. devs actually listen to requests. wait 3-4 months. all these features will probably be taken into effect, if not more.

    Xiao, are you accepting other ideas and adding them to the list?

    That'd be pretty cool cause i'd like to see an organized overall list of our ideas

    a list that long with probably take up all the storage space on the server, but yeah, we need a single list. maybe make this thread sticky?

    That'd be cool. I'm going to start to write down a mini-list of ideas that i have(and maybe come up with) and then post it sometime.

    ok so here are ideas i got from the 1.05 thread.......

    tsunami
    sea creatures
    locusts
    hurricanes
    weather, like rain or snow
    meteors
    other islands
    customization
    aliens
    tsunami
    sea creatures
    locusts
    hurricanes
    weather, like rain or snow
    meteors
    other islands
    customization
    aliens
    army ants
    Posession
    Black Hole--that grows as you touch it and pygmies fly into it and cling onto each other and you find the black hole as you move the sky
    Cling-- Pygmies grab on each other if you hold them above each other
    It would be cool if you can promote a guy into the cheif of the island LOL
    have pygmys wear diff clothes
    yeah like have shamans and warriors, but i think if stuff like that would be added the game would have to be more 3D so they all wont just move from left to right and be in a huge group, it would have to be 3D like Virtual Villager or something
    They just should make it so u choose a guy to be cheif and everyone else has a spear to attack things.
    something that would be nice that wouldnt completely change the game is having bigger islands and a side scrolling type feature so u can see the whole island in 2D. Once u get far enough to the left or right it would automatically go to the other side of the island so it looks like ur on a 2D island thats also round at the same time.
    Lol and you see pygmys bowing down to him and worship him when the cheif walks by lol
    Some constructions, like: pyramids, temples, etc.
    possession
    i only like the idea of a deserted island!
    I do have one suggestion, have a world map where you can chosse different islands (so the first would be this island, then the second one could be a treasure island or something)
    for me possesion is good... But I would rather have canoes for them to hop in and sail around and fish or be destroyed by a sea monster or something... Or maybe a way to Bonk their heads together while holding on their hair..
    yeah that would be cool , i think a 3 eyed green pygmie for a alien that came down and turned the pygmies into animals would be cool or a conquistador pygmie in a armor suit would be funny
    they should build totems? firepit? and little things like that?
    campfire, or something like that, or maybe a tiny one man house?
    how bout letting them build one small shack out of sticks or something. (only one so it doesnt take up alot.) then u can use like a black hole type power to rip it apart. that would be funny. when u use the black hole and pull it apart it would be funny if it ripped the roof off and showed a pygmie in the tub, then he got suprised before getting sucked in. that would be funny.
    Monster sea and sharks
    I think that it would be good to have multiple islands, may a menu tu select them, you can choose either palm tree and statue or house with camp fire...
    black hole
    tusami
    banana tree
    i dont know bout building but what bout if they could complete tasks to get items like a shovel then they could dig a mine and that could open up a new environment, or if a pyramaid they could enter it.
    more islands
    banana tree and peels they can slip on
    Well, we need to keep the core of the game the same, you know, something for fun, not too complicated. I dont think we can have something that makes it too deep, we need to keep it like a sandbox mode.
    pgymy farmers
    a tropical island with bananas pinapples and coconuts to give to the islanders or do stuff with. It could have an oasis with a little pool of water right in the middle that they can swim in. that would be a nice type of place. then a mean place to put them in would be a desert island that they act all dehydrated in and can get eaten by giant sandworms that come out of the ground. oh and quicksand!
    quicksand
    Coconut Sculpture
    Different Pygmies
    Sand Castles
    Eating
    Drinking
    Playing
    Running Away
    sand castles
    more pygmys
