I do believe I've seen other threads concerning this topic, but I just want to throw my two cents in
Ever since housing was added I have had this feeling of "emptiness" whenever I visit my homes. I really do miss the whole coming "home" and being greeted by moving and talking NPCs - like bards, spouses and guards. I know we have Assistants that we can place in the home, but it's just not the same.
That is why I would love for there to be added a new category to housing: "Environmental/Ambient Characters"
Included in this category I would like to see:
- Bards/minstrels/Jesters/other entertainers
- Civilian NPCs
- Soldier NPCs
- Domestic animals - like cows, sheep and chickens
- Wild animals - like rabbits, birds and squirrels
- Fish, both single fish and schools - so that we can make our waters feel more alive
- Butterflies and Torchbugs - preferably in large clusters
And most importantly, it would be an awesome feature if we were then able to set these characters to either be "stationary" (so they stay where they are placed) or "in motion" (so that they move about, like they do in the rest of the world). The humanoid NPCs should of course also be able to talk, either by simple greetings and phrases when you walk by, or actual conversations when interacting with them directly.
I know a lot of these ideas and features are big dreams, but hey - a girl can dream
What are your thoughts on the subject? Would you like to see something like this or similar? Do you have other wishes and dreams for your homes? Is there something far out and crazy you'd love to see added? I'd love to hear what other housing fanatics think
