What will your tower be like?
When you get back into the game and can have a tower on your home street, what will it be like? Will it be a marketplace? Will it be a display of your collectables? Will it be a place where you build Glitchy art? Will you have a party room? Will you have a stage for performance art? Will it reflect your interests? How many floors will it have?
Mine will be more functional than creative.
I'd like to have a party room in the lobby - a place for people to gather if they want. May sell specialty drinks.
The next few floors will be a marketplace based on what skills I have at the time:
One floor for selling basic resources for those that don't like to go out and gather (may also put a set of machines here so people can process the resources in the same location);
One floor for selling fruit, crops, and spices;
One floor for selling herbs, tinctures, and maybe potions;
One floor eventually for selling furniture and maybe advanced tools.
Like my previous towers, I'll probably have at least one floor on top as a reflection room where I post quotes that have meaning for me (and those that share my beliefs can take them for free).
a) a convenience store that resold most vendor-available items at an extremely modest markup (most 1-2c over unadjusted vendor prices for items under 100c) including building permits, papers and other bureaucratic hall goodies. Farming the building permits was strangely fun for me. It turned a modest profit and mostly was for my own convenience.
b) a place to store rewards like musicblocks, gems, and emblems. I didn't do much with them but I was reluctant to sell them so I would throw them all in SDBs regularly.
Here is a link where you can see my old tower: http://www.glitchthegame.com/locations/LA5EVG87I343BQ2/
Each floor's decoration had a theme:
Top floor: "the Eye of the Giants" emblem storage and wonderment room
8th floor: "Gem Meditation Room" gem storage and spa retreat
7th floor: "Zille Appreciation Room" featuring SDBs with pumpkin ghosts, Giant-sized chairs in case Zille ever stopped by, and a mysterious voice coming from the corner
6th floor: "Purple Karaoke Bar" MB storage and karaoke theme. Limited supplies of purp and NoNo available from the shady SDBs in the corner
5th floor: "RoboYeti Fun Parlour" offering some race tickets, a few toy vendor items, and sno cones. (Originally sponsored by RoboYeti, thanks again!)
4th floor: "Vegetable Cafe" Crop Seeds
3rd floor: "Bog Bar" Produce vendor items and a few basic drinks: beer, hooch, crabato, milk.
2nd floor: "Uralian Tool Vendor" tool vendor items
1st floor: "Bureaucratic Foyer" grocery vendor and bureaucroc items, firefly jars, quills.
I'm not sure what direction the decorating will go next time. I might end up doing something completely different on some or all the floors.
One thing that will be different is the name. I think I'd rename it "ScarBear's 24/11 Convenience", but it used to be "Aunty Scar's Bear Parlour". I settled on the name before I fully committed to the reselling thing, and it was sort of a personal homage to something my grandmother used to say to me ("Stay out of those beer parlours!") and I was too attached to change it later. But I did put a bear on every floor!
Man, I wish I had taken snaps of it's interior...
I do like the idea of a reflection room. Or a story building room (one person starts a story and others come by to continue it).
Other than that...I don't even know! I know I want to build my tower as tall as it will go but...I guess I will think of things?
