20071220 Power Station Flavor

Apocalypse Wow 16:43, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion type

Suggestion scope
Power Stations

Suggestion description
I suggest giving power stations a roleplaying aspect. They wouldn't make their own power but when completely not ransacked/ruined receive power from outside the city and channel it to the rest the Malton.

The connections to buildings are destroyed so this doesn't power and buildings. Instead it feeds the streetlights in each street square. This just makes the streets description say "The streetlight is on". Since there are 2 power stations which street squares they power should be split fairly between them.

This wouldn't do anything besides flavor but I think people would fight over something that would create a visible change throughout all of Malton.

Keep Votes

  1. Keep/Change - Could double the search percentages on streets. Even with doubled chances searching outside would still be pretty useless :D. --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 16:50, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Keep - As with Midinian AngelBlade 17:04, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Keep - As AngelBlade. --Heretic144 17:31, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Keep - as all above. also, I think this is different enough to not be a dupe--CorndogheroT-S-Z 21:30, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  5. Keep - I'm all for causing fights. --Pavluk A! E! 22:06, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  6. Keep You can't find anything on the streets anyway, so why not? --BlobdudeTalk TM MC 01:33, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  7. Keep - ?streets is watchin?? whut? --Officer 123satsitx 01:48, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
    Invalid justification. --User:Axe27/Sig 08:37, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  8. Keep But make it rubbish. Something like the streetlights are flickering, or only a handful are working. Because its a good idea, if you can get round the "Hook them up to buildings" Ideas.--Rosslessness 09:42, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
    Keep - I don´t know, I don´t know. I always fancy a good, decent free-for-all but this could go into the wrong direction....--the wallaby 13:36, 21 December 2007 (UTC) opinion changed
  9. Keep - We need some more goddamn email. UCFSD 16:58, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  10. Keep - Neato. --  AHLGTG 04:12, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
  11. Keep - It's a truly realistic suggestion - zombies don't care for some metal posts standing in a row on the street, so the lamps wouldn't be destroyed in process of infestation. The junkyards are not working, so no one would cut the lamps off and haul them there to get the money for their weight of junk. The power lines run underground, so if the power station didn't explode, there should be nothing preventing it from working...beside someone who could turn this thing on, of course :)--James beckerson 10:40, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
  12. Keep - Like it! It would be useful. A permanent struggle between zed and harman... Forever struggling... FOR POWER... --The Trichloroethane Potato SGP E! RQ! Winner 1! 13:24, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
  13. Keep Because you're supposed to vote on the merits of THIS suggestion, not suggestions this might inspire.  Nalikill  TALK  E!  W!  M!  USAI  00:23, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
  14. Keep Not particularly useful, but amusing nonetheless. --TriPolarClicky! 05:15, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
  15. keep As i have stated many times before, ideas like this make Urban Dead appealing to many of its players including me.--zinker 17:23, 30 December 2007 (UTC) ZinkerT!Z!A!R! F ! The zsg,defending Malton since 2007.zinker M! SwitzerC.gif Brainzz
  16. Keep Makes sense. Maybe this can be a first step in powering all of Malton one day. Imagine the wars over both PowerStations, people might even leave the malls for this. Saying power stations shouldn't be able to power anything is like saying air shouldn't be used for breathing...--John Blast 19:33, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill - Because the streets is darkenin' in a zombie apocalypse.... --WanYao 22:28, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Kill it now, before its implementation results in a barrage of "hook building up to street light power" suggestions. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 00:10, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
    just because someone else might make a bad suggestion in the future doesn't mean this is bad. There must be a way to turn any idea into something terrible --Apocalypse Wow 02:36, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
    I agree, but as much as I like the flavor here, it just ain't worth the confusion caused because people would expect it to have some potential benefit, even if only to future suggestions. Essentially the the same principle applies as when voting against gun holsters as clothing on the clothing page. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 07:03, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Kill. I like it, but Swiers is right. It is possible to nick power from streetlamps, and people will flood the suggestions page asking for it to be done.--SeventythreeTalk 01:31, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Kill - as Sweirs --~~~~ [talk] 07:36, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  5. Kill - It´s just blasphemy. --the wallaby 02:38, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
  6. Kill - If Malton was in a quarantine, they would probably cut the power. --Downinflames 00:11, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
  7. Kill - as Sweirs, I like the flavour, but the barrage of people trying to take advantage of it just isn't worth it. ChrisForelle 19:19, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Spam/Dupe Votes

  1. Dupe - the powering of street lights is a part of the Peer Reviewed "Power Street Lights (& Stuff)" suggestion. Good night, and good luck. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 19:34, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
    • Re that seems complicated. you need a skill and have to turn on buttons with only a small chance of succeed. i'm just saying to have this as a really big decoration. i think it's important for Kevan to know that he could add power without having it do anything beside start wars --Apocalypse Wow 20:05, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Spam - First step in an ungodly overpowered idea. Power Stations shouldn't be able to power anything.--Karekmaps?! 01:45, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. It's a dupe. Funt gave the link. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 14:52, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Spam - -- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 22:21, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
  5. Spam - As Karek--/~WOOT~\ 21:54, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
  6. Dupe - --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 14:07, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
