I was thinking how cool it was for players to design their own unique items, like in seccond life, and be able to use them for themselves or trade them for items other players crafted.
I think this could work in some games (not all obviously), and it would be totaly awesome!
It would add a new element to the Auction House and also would help make your character more unique.
I know it wouldn't work if players walked around with dildos in world of warcraft, but what if a player designed say baseball bats, electric pocketlamps, chainsaws, jason's mask to use in games like The secret world. Wouldn't that make it even cooler to play in the long run? And people would make money selling their items for in-game money, so you don't have to grind or anything, or you can trade your item for a similar item.
Think about the posibilities! If I wan't to design a crazy barbie doll character I can design a bloody teddybear molotov as a grenade replacement. If I want to play a zombie stripper killer I could make myself a leather jacket and a bloody chainsaw that would act as a melee weapon.
Say I want to be an archer I can design my own bow!
Would that work or would it ruin the game? I'm thinking about a free to play game design here...
