V2 Ideas: Holiday Events! Leave Your Ideas!

Posted 08-03-18 4:19

Something I always loved about sim games was the fun events around holidays. Some of them were very fun, interactive events that the whole site could participate in and others were cute little rewards for active players to cash in on!

But Pony has to do something great. With having a huge town of NPCs you guys can interact with, I was thinking of making our holiday events much more interactive than the average sim. I have several ideas already in mind myself (that I'm going to keep a secret for surprise reasons ;D) but I want to hear what ideas YOU have for fun holiday events! Here are some holiday or seasonal events we should plan around (starting from January 1st):

= New Year's Day - January 1st
= Valentine's Day - February 14th
  • Shino's Surprise Event!

  • = Pony-versary - February 16th
  • Laika's Pony Round-up! Get special anniversary items!

  • = St Patrick's Day - March 17th
    = Spring Equinox - March 20th (In lieu of Easter)
  • New Life Olympic Trials Event!

  • = April Fools - April 1st
  • Cina's Color Mashups! Rainbow horse colors!
  • = Earth Day - April 22nd
    = Mother's Day - May
  • Shino's Surprise Event!

  • = Cinco De Mayo - May 5th
  • Cina's Margarita Party! (non-alcoholic Margaritas will be provided to minors xD)

  • = Father's Day - June
  • Shino's Surprise Event!

  • = Summer Solstice - June 21th
  • Midsummer Olympic Trials Event!

  • = Independence Day - July 4th
    = Autumnal Equinox - September 22nd
  • First Harvest Olympic Trials Event!

  • = Halloween - October 31st
  • Shino's Surprise Event!

  • = Thanksgiving - November
    = Winter Solstice - December 21st (In lieu of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc)
  • Midwinter Olympic Trials Event!

  • Now, I'm sure with this list, you've noticed I've pulled all the religion based holidays. This is because Pony's player base is so diverse, I would have a hard time putting together specific events for EVERYONE. So, for Pony's town, all holidays are just general events with no ties. You can suggest traits from specific holidays, but we're going to keep things generic otherwise ;3

    If you have any suggestions for events, please feel free to post them as a forum thread (so you can include details) and I'll add them to the list!

    If you would like for your suggestion to be a SURPRISE!, please feel free to PM me the idea! I'll add it as a surprise suggestion by you!

    Cina Cinco De Mayo where your ponies get margaritas and tacos... oh wait, hmm :p

    Other than graphics and such you can click on for prizes or turning horse colors into something crazy on April fools I don't really have any ideas.

    Lakia Celebrate Pony-Sim anniversary, Maybe have a ?rare item" such as an anniversary badges, equipment, blanket, plushie or? The event can be a reunion type "Round-Up" for players to participate in.

    Requiem I don't know what event this would be good for, but a scavenger hunt could be fun! I've mostly seen this implemented as an easter egg hunt where you randomly find eggs by clicking around the site, I guess similar to how we're finding horse import tokens and such now, then you can trade them in for cool prizes.

    I was going to suggest Halloween so we could be collecting candy or something, but I see you have something special planned for that already ;)
