What objects will you incorporate into your levels?

You can show us your designs here or just describe it. You can then combine your ideas to make even more unique objects.

Im planning on making some sort of bulldozer to put in a minigame to move things that were un-movable before. Anything else you think I could add to it?

Isn't this section of the forum made to show off ideas anyway? What's the point of this thread? :p

Thats like saying whats the point of those stickies.

Its to get all the ideas in one thread so you dont have to look in loads.

I'd rather have multiple threads focused on specific themes as opposed to one thread with everyone's ideas spread out across three hundred pages...

No ! This is a idea with great potential ! Amazing idea, because this would unlock alot of options for alot of ways of buidling challenges, puzzles, tests and all the stuff you can come up with. You had a very good idea, and if i may be so bold then continue to do so. These idea's only needs to be worked out thats all.

People nowadays do often not exept a raw idea, they want the drag&drop package that has been fully worked out so they can copy it. I dont blame anyone but thats how it goes nowadays.

Great idea moleynator ! Keep up the good work because i would like to see more of these great idea's !

This an idea bank created by Marino...:)

Plus the rules are clear guys:

Hey guys and gals. Just wanted to stop something before it ever gets started (if that makes sense).

Number one rule with this part of the forums where people are posting ideas:

1) No idea posted is this area is a:

dumb idea, stupid, not going to work idea, why would you do that idea....

In other words, let people post their ideas and not worry about people slamming it. If you don't like the idea, don't say anything. And you never know. That idea might be a good one once it's been created. We want these boards to be straight up fun for everyone.

So another words if you dont like an idea then dont post...;)

I'm afraid you misunderstood the initial intention of this thread...

He wanted it to be a thread where people could post their ideas and designs, which basically kills the whole point of this section of the forum.
If everything were to be concentrated in one thread, what's the point in having a whole forum dedicated to such a matter?

It would also make it harder to look through all of the ideas people come up with, not to mention the fact that many wouldn't even read other posts. >_>

EDIT:
@ Noonian:
Thing is, there's no idea here besides his bulldozer thing, which he has already made a whole new thread for it.
And what I typed above still applies...

It practically kills the purpose of this forum.

I actually agree with the others, for a few reasons.

1. Is because the idea for the ideas forums is for people to post their ideas, which is amazing, but this thread is more about unique individual objects, which leads me to the ever-so important point 2.

2. This thread isn't about posting just any ideas, its about trying to think of new objects to make as a community, instead of just one person talking about one object they designed. The reason this is so great is because where I might bring up my idea for a ballista in one thread. and somebody else might come up with a wall climbing tank in a seperate thread, if we stated similar ideas here we could combine the two and make a wall climbing tank with a ballista on top.

The point is this thread can take ideas for objects even one step further.

I don't know, I think its worth it to give it a shot, to give us all a chance to get our creative minds working.

Ok. I could change the first post to say that it is so people can combine their ideas to make even more unique objects.

NEW IDEA!! A switch that activates a little catapult that fires you back to the start. Or forward to a new place. How could I make this better?

That's an awesome idea! Kinda like Snakes and Ladders... I wouldn't send them all the way back to the start though as while you may get vindictive pleasure out of it (wouldn't we all ;)), relatively few people would finish your level. They'd just quit when they realised that they'd landed back at the start. I mean imagine playing Snakes and Ladders and then landing on a Snake that put you back to 0. Love the overall idea though :).

And you could probably make a whole level with these things that send you back a certain distance but each one is different and unique :).

We seriously would all love to see that happen to others. :)

Im gonna start a thread when lbp comes out to plan collab levels with other users. Hopefully four of us working on stuff will be much more efficient.

Hehe this has given me an idea! You could make a race level where there are catapults that somehow randomly launch the sackboy who pushes its switch either forwards in the level, or backwards in the level, so if a player wants to risk it he can jump into the catapult. If it sends him forward, he gets a little boost and gets launched further through the map, but if he gets unlucky he will get sent backwards and his friends will a chance to get a good lead on him.
