So in doing some research and curiosity ive been learning about the google maps platform for gaming and all the things they have added that Ludia can take advantage of. The additions from March in particular.
The biome information is quite intresting on water mechanics spawns… as google puts it you can have a racoon spawn in a dumpster… I really like to have this in with aquatics just to add to the ar experience… i think it would add to the ar perspective but knowing google is tying this kind of information i dont have to worry about small bodies of water being ignore.
The other addition from March was the new pathfinding and allowing creatures to chase people in game. Im not gonna lie… the idea of running from a trex for some in game challenge could be really fun as it happens so much in the movies… obviously we will have to hit it with a dart that slows it down or something. I know their are issues with the idea of some fool running down main st into on comming traffic… but hopefully you can come up with something.
Using some of this stuff to add to the ar experience would go a long way towards repairing the damage to the ar game 1.5 spawn mechanics did.
Even adding biome mechanics to some addition spawns could greatly enhance the ar portion and make it more intresting… ie forested location have a chance of spawning x regardless of the locale one is in.
