Forums > Suggestions & Development Discussion > Universes Implementation?

For us brainstormers such as me, I love to build words, organizations, plots, scenarios. And I know it would be a rather big thing to implement because I code myself and I know how things work, especially with PHP. To the point and not to bore anyone with my details, as a thing Kim could you consider build something like a characters thing but for universes? And within universes we could have worlds, then within that we could organizations, plots, scenarios? And we could have an option to disable and enable? And as a later feature you can allow up to three people to edit a certain. Like I said, it's a big thing and I know it wouldn't be super hard(because I myself know it would be easy), but more so time consuming.

I understand if you don't have time for it, but I think it's a good side thing to take your time with and work on it as you go on with more important updates. I'm not great with interacting with the community, but I try. That's all I can say . . . with an emphasized, try.

I could build it myself, but I'm not hired. XD

Most people use Groups to store the information on their game universes. You could use the pages to store all the vital information and announcements to keep your players up to date with plot advancements and events. You'd even be keeping all the RPs in one dedicated place.

I understand that which is why I mean for this to be a rather low priority thing. I just thought it'd be cool to have something like this to keep things separate from the clutter of RPs.

Groups are intended to be used for world-building information. I plan to expand on groups, but probably not in a way that is this specific.

I suggest you make a group for a universe. Then make a page for each world (or galaxy) or whatever. Then use collapse tags to organize city/political/ecological information for each world on its page. You could even nest collapse tags to have a section for world-building info, another section for plots taking place on that world, etc.

There's nothing that says you need to turn on the forum, announcement, or membership capabilities of a group -- you could just leave the group's profile public and use it to showcase info.

Kay, I'll just keep using groups. Thanks.
