Hey y'all Yup, another concept I was kind of inspired and also bored so i said to myself why not making a concept? I remember i saw somewhere that cities in TSO had neighborhoods which were basically areas with different names, but why not giving them mayors? Might be added might be not, i had this idea and wanted to share it with you all . Huge thanks to @Vimpsee that helped me on few aspects. Let's see what is all about: Requires: - A new lot type, non-owner kind, to take speeches; - A whole new set of features for the mayor of the neighborhood; - Custom bitmap signs to make a more realistic stage for the speech; - Approval of the custom bitmaps from the moderation team as soon as they are going to be shown to the public and that includes underage people too; - An option somewhere to add your sim to the candidates list. The concept itself: I was thinking, a funny way to become a pro simmer in FreeSO might be being the mayor of a certain space or neighborhood. The idea is pretty simple: in a UI, that can be opened by the computer or maybe even the phone, you are able to put your sim in the candidates list with a candidate name and a slogan or motto. There must be a limit of candidates of course. So, the first round has a limit of 15 sims that will take their speech on pre-scheduled days to explain to the neighborhood why they are better than the other candidates. At the end of the first turn there must be 2 best candidates per neighborhood. During the second round candidates can use a custom bitmap that will be shown at their rallies, here's a quick example: Once both the 2 candidates took their speech, there will be a final vote to decide the winner of each neighborhood. There's a celebration party after the winner is elected. How do rallies work? Rallies are important to show your ideas and get more people to vote you. You can do a quick rally in your lot if in that particular moment there's a few people or you just scheduled one but you can also join your scheduled rally in the local rally lot of your neighborhood. Every neighborhood needs one and the layout looks like this: The area with the green squares is the editable area, the non editable objects are the microphone that of course is needed to be heard and you will need at least 2 signs to add your custom bitmap. They are automatically adapted to the candidate's custom bitmap,p Voting: You can easily vote from your PC in-game: How much time is the winner going to be mayor? A mayor lasts for 1 year (365 days from the election day) Advantages in being the mayor of the neighborhood: Once elected, the mayor will get a few advantages as a payback for the hard journey that drove him or her to where he or she is. - Living in a premade Whitehouse-like lot; - Have the possibility to organize events in community non-owner lots available in their neighborhood; - Kick players, every player that is being annoying from the neighborhood, this player will eventually need to get a new house, all the forniture will be sent to the inventory and the money kept; - Request a player to be banned from the game directly to the moderators; - They can rename the neighborhood 2 times during their political career; - If a lot contains explicit messages made of flooring or other stuff they have the right to bulldoze the are of the lot with this message; Funds of the neighborhood: Mayors have 10k Simoleons as neighborhood funds. They can use this amount of money to organize the events and hopefully the payback of the money raised from the event will be higher than the amount spent, or give loans to the citizens and plan a give back date. The amount will pile up mayor after mayor and will stop at 200k cause it would become too much and 200k is largely enough. Misbehaving mayor? Citizens can report a misbehaving mayor to the moderators so that they can remove his mayor status instantly cause they might be abusing the kick power or just not making a good job. Not active enough mayors are also subject to complains, as soon as they don't take care of their neighborhood and citizens have the right to say something about it. Tell me what you think.
