    Default Insiders Return Shout Out to Pex -- Summary of Dragon*Con

    A new story entry has been added:

    [drupal=511]Insiders Return Shout Out to Pex -- Summary of Dragon*Con[/drupal]

    Thanks to Pex for the shout-out to Free Realms Insider during his panel appearance at Dragon*Con!
    This past Sunday, September 6, Ambassador Pex hosted a FreeRealms Panel while attending the Dragon*Con '09 conference. This was also ustreamed for the general public and those watching the ustream were able to submit questions.


    Here are just a few highlights --

    Soccer:

    • Different uniforms will be available, along with upgrades like special effects "snow frosted particles".
    • Single player vs computer generated players OR guild vs friends.
    • It will be a top-down view, always looking at opponents goal, backing up to see your goal.
    • Some moves are: Slide tackle, Tornado kicks and Headers (these will become available as you level up)
    • Power boost and speed boosts will be on the field for you to run and grab
    • Each half will be 4 or 5 minutes long

    Fishing will be coming out after soccer

    • It will be a mini game
    • Many different types of fish
    • Once the fish grabs your bobber you will be taken to a new underwater screen to try to grab the fish you want
    • Fish can be used for food recipes
    • You might find loot items
    • Also you can sell back items to vendors

    Miscellanous info for fun : Pex's dogs are named Simon and Dasher. Pex also loves the Hula Outfit. Another bit of inside info is all the name choices for dogs in FR comes from SOE's employees real dog names that they were asked to submit. The character name choices are from the employees childrens names.

    Final notes:

    • Housing will come sometime after fishing.
    • They are working on the locked inventory items.
    • They are revamping inventory so its easier to use.

    Houses how cool. I can't wait. What I hope to happen is the houses will be free and everyone in a guild will be in that guilds neighborhood. So excited.

    I am looking forward to the fishing part. That sounds fun. Yesterday I was wondering around working on my collections and I came across some fish jumping up in the air out of the water. It was so funny! I was at that location the day before and didn't see them then so I wonder if this is going to be a place we can fish. Next time I see them jumping I will try to remember to take a screen shot.

    Thanks for all the info.

    Here's hoping they allow sorting of inventory items by level or type. ANY kind of organization would be welcome...

    Wow fishing looks good. Can't wait for the housing though. It'll be fun to own one and decorate it.

    Agreed deeply. While selling (a long time ago), the inventory would always reorganize itself in the most random way, which made selling the right stuff difficult .

    I just hope the decorations don't look wierd... What's the point of decor if it turns a plank of wood into a torn up boot?

    Status: Quit FR since I never liked FR at all. Will probably not post anymore.
