@ Aegenia:

Just because Unity is a game engine, that does not mean that it is a good engine. Also if Unity was such a good engine, game developers would not stop using it for Unreal engine or others that are much better.
Plus many people had suggested the same thing so that they could have their avatars to walk on IMVU. People had already pointed out the flaws and the cons that way outweighed the pros.
Also with a new engine, the products in teh catalogue will be useless, which means that developers will lose a lot of money (yes, real money), thus it will never happen.



@ Arumiel:

For starters, think.
People have pointed out massive flaws that way outweigh the pros. But let me recap:
~New servers cost.
~New engine cots.
~Staff getting paid.
~Better internet speed required. (Something that not everyone has access to).
~Better computers.
~Possible monthly fee, or at least paying some money to buy IMVU.
~Developers will lose all their products, thus resulting in a loss of real money.
~IMVU already has issues with the 3D client and the servers, something as demanding as a game will only make things far worse.
~CS is incompetent as it is right now, when the whole thing turns into a game they will be even more incompetent.
~People come here to chat, and do text based things.
~Not everyone would like to have IMVU turn into a game.
~Why would anyone want IMVU to turn into something like a game, when there already are so many games out there?

I could actually keep adding things, but I am sure that you folks get the point.
Such a thing won't help, won't solve a thing, won't be a change. It will only be a huge strain, a pain in the ass and something to worry about at all times.
Earlier I had said that IMVU stands for Instant Messaging Virtual Universe. More attention was brought at the Instant Messaging part, instead of the whole thing, and especially the lat part, Virtual Universe.
Yes, the client has games and other features, so? That means nothing. It is a social thing to do, plus something that will generate income for IMVU. It is exactly the same like facebook and other social platforms.

Anyway, this idea is bad, it is really bad.
From the user standpoint, such a thing may look cool, awesome, fantastic, but from a programmer's standpoint it is a disaster. Add the release of half assed things and you get a recipe for disaster.
You have to understand that the faults of some games can destroy a PC part, I do not think that anyone would want IMVU of all things to crash their computer or destroy a part.

If IMVU makes this make, its gonna be terrible anyway. IMVU doesn't know how to make anything else that is good and isn't a virtual world.

ABOUT WHY DON'T JUST PLAY THAT GAME THAT PROVIDE THAT WHAT YOU WANT
I like being unique expresion virtual avatars appearances, many does! Via Accessing IMVU catalogs asset plus game with it is fun!
I can feel great fun and satisfaction in this format :
Playing Third Person Shooter(TPS) using Awsome Avatars I Assemble
Hack slash with awesome avatars I Assemble
Foot Race parkour action with awesome avatars I Assemble
I'm sure many other feel the same.


You don't know if your favorite outfit is going to break the game. It's bad enough that a lot of room owners warn people in their room descriptions not to wear certain creators' products because of lag/fps loss. Imagine that in a video game setting where people have under performing PCs/Laptops to even run the game. A kb limit would be nice, however this potentially goes against what you may want: "Awesome Avatars I assemble."

Don't get me wrong, I love character customization in my video games. However, I can at least understand to be realistic with what's okay and what's game breaking.


Thanks great point of view I add it to my main post

ABOUT AVATARS PIXEL KBS CRASH BOTH CHAT WORLD AND GAME WORLD
KBS limit restriction included algorithm test unit executed as soon as User press enter key a loop box loading scanning,
case 1 : if the register Kbs At decline values return to user Messages "Chat Room/Game Room enter fail and list of problem/reason displayed.
Example "your avatars kbs too high, your avatars contain products ban by room owner, connection is low, This room is country limited"

case 2 : accept values, if user kbs at acceptable values User enter chat room/game room successfully messages Room rules/Owner Messages for visitors.

@iShatteredSanity
~ Dificulty source code
I suggest Developer to keep remodel instead of fixing and patching.
Remodel/recreate solve many thing cost lot of brain power.....
I could help out.

~Cost to hire
assuming IMVU profit is good enough to expand services quality I suggest them to make this Arumiel Ideas into useable application.
assuming IMVU Profit is poor not enaugh to expand services quality, I understand You may decide to postpond or to not do it.

~New Engine
You don't buy new game engine nor leasing new game engine
my suggestion is to create the game engine from scratch using the old engine as references, study the flaw and yeah there is soo much work to do, Remodel the basic principal source code is better than fixing,patching them.


~Abused Computer and Abused internet
IMVU should put this message at installation, and at page where the client downloaded, if you having lag problem lossing frame rates ; it is advise for you to take responsibility to make sure your computer and your internet are up for 3D Graphic entertainment do not abused computer that are not build for 3D graphic entertainment, do not abuse slow internet speed that are not mean for 3D Graphic entertainment. for life time think! we don't like abuser wether its computer abuse, internet abuse, fear and worried abuse, picking up fight abuse, getting on nerve abuse, Disagreement expression abuse, traping people into loop abuse, is not constructive to benefits of all and most human stay away from such circumstances.


~User friendliness work
if you not able to to have latest computer and good internet speed a feature new client design specifically for poor internet speed, for poor computer performances, new group of worker are needed(assuming IMVU gain soo much money more than they ever need) to buy old computer to burden the slow computer connection speed to study research and provide developer with search result listing products or graphical feature such particles, that would crash the old computer/abused computer that are not supposed to use for 3D graphical display entertainment should not be display

~Buy IMVU ?
Suggestion is to create game for free and paid for all, monthly subscription payment reserve only for exclusive unlimited play pass. some of the feature in game is free to play 2/3 part of game mode. only 1/3 game mode for paid user, soon more will be added such exclusive games.

nothing to be afraid of I have remodel the idea many times design to please most of user.

@iShatteredSanity
YOU NOT NOTICING how imvu featuring their instant messaging services; They provide music in IMVU, music playlist is not instant messaging by definition. The list goes on ; IMVU Leave messages services, dress up(I like to call it Avatar Appearances Editors (AAE)) playing mini game IMVU Bejeweled, IMVU EMOJI, IMVU photo booth , IMVU pulses, IMVU shoping Catalogs Micro transaction, Special account subscription(VIP,AP) and etc

YOU NOT NOTICING AGAIN how imvu define Virtual universe in their services packages. I don't see and I don't feel Virtual universe in IMVU,
According to common people understanding virtual universe mean you can travel the universe visit stars and planet that orbiting them, where is that in IMVU ? IMVU have but limited virtual 3D world Space doesn't even match world size...


IMVU name is irrelevant , by your logics if IMVU developer should stick with IMVU they should only be Instant Messaging , NO IMVU Leave messages for friend, NO avatars, NO Appearances shopping, NO music shopping, NO 3D chat room..... because all those are not mention in the Services name which is not attractive and there is no fun in that.
Plus IMVU should work real hard to define Virtual universe even virtual world they can't even afford to simulate its virtuality values!!

ABOUT IMVU NEED TO CHANGE ITS NAME
I suggest Change IMVU name into : Vritual Avatars Space(VAS) for 3D chats, 3D appearances editors, 3D Catalogs Content thirdparty developer/Online entrepreneurship(chance to make money at home online),Music shop for 3D Chat and 3D game, 3D play games(Third Person Shooter,Action Fighting, Foot race.)



@IMVU DEVELOPER AND INVESTORS
This Suggestion and Feed Back from Arumiel Is a good investment because He Successfully combine brilliant ideas to maximized Fun aspect or Maximizing Pleasure aspect in what currently available as 3D chat with million of catalogs build in by third party developer combine with Virtual world physic enable customer and free user to play using what they have purchases , this idea help eliminate confusion whether IMVU is a game or not, the reason it not make it to public global talks and receive low polarity its all because of imvu is half what it supposed to be.

@IMVU Community and IMVU Developer,
Please please please I beg you, support this idea make IMVU developer Team notice this beautiful idea packages and accept them and making them into real thing. I Beg you, thank you thank you thank you.

This idea is just one big huge expense and I don't see IMVU getting any return on their investment based on the audience who will be attracted by this proposed feature.

Look at games like Call of Duty and Battlefield. Whenever you play them online with other people the vast majority of people you will find playing are children aged 7-13. IMVU is 13+ so the majority of people who will be attracted by this feature won't even be able to sign up for IMVU to use it - and if they lie about their ages, well then that just adds to the already huge problem of underage users with fake ages that we already have on here right now. I don't see IMVU making a return on its investment and maintenance of this feature based on the current age restrictions.

If you want to add games which people who are old enough to use this site will actually use; then add a Pokémon game server and let people catch em' all in public rooms.

I think the biggest issue this idea faces, in all honesty is simply this: Would there be enough people interested to make this a worthwhile venture? I wouldn't want to see IMVU waste the time and resources to make something that was barely used.

As far as creating various games. I would suggest to IMVU to polish up some of the games they currently have and that would be a good base to start. Heirloom could very easily be a fun Mystery RPG, while The Hunt could be turned into a simple FPS or even a MOBA. I think if they were polished up some, I think then IMVU could see how much those are being used to gauge if a larger project would be worthwhile.

I do like the idea of the Pokemon Go style game as well. While it may not create lasting friendships, it would require people to go out and venture to rooms, so the potential of creating social networks with the user base would be there.

The first part of where I bolded...

This is something that the OP seems to be avoiding as the OP seems to be pushing this for his own gain and not thinking about if anyone else would be interested in something like this (and if there, it's probably a small percentage) which goes back Calypsio's post.

As for the second part of where I bolded...

This is I can see being more logical....instead bringing in new games that would require much more time and money, just fix up the ones that IMVU already has.

@DianaDeMysterieux
uhhh IMVU Developer and Investors are you really that Poor, as claim by DianaDemysteriuex ?
She is repeating respond writing IMVU not afford too expensive all poor too poor not afford that not afford this and IMVU company display sign of bankruptcy ? I thought IMVU Investors and Developer enjoying Rich Wealth just poor in quality talent , quality creativity assemble something new, poor quality creativity in coming up with solution, poor in having rich costumer who have success mind thinking instead of not afford that not afford this not afford those not afford all type of user/costumer/desperate poor IMVU account owner pretended rich in Virtual space.

It doesn't matter what you want. Your wants and desires are not above anyone elses who use IMVU. The main feature of IMVU is chatting. It's a chat site. People come here to meet other people and talk to them. That is the real main feature of this site, and it should not be downgraded into a poorly managed shooting game.

If this thread is to be taken as a representation of what IMVU users want, then it's very clear that the majority don't want some poorly thought out and bandwagon jumping FPS game slapped onto the already bloated client.

We have already established why this is a very bad investment, if you don't know why this is the case then go back and read the previous posts explaining it.

This idea isn't the least bit "brilliant" as you put it. It's a terrible idea and would cost IMVU a lot to set up and maintain. There is no way to justify them spending that money on a crappy feature that essentially only children who aren't old enough to use IMVU would use.

This isn't even a case of "don't use it if you don't like it." This proposed feature (if you can even call it that) would degrade the experience for everyone who uses this site. First off, it's unnecessary bloat added to the client. Second off, it's bad enough that morons like to room hop with trigger guns and shoot them, imagine how bad it would be after IMVU legitimises that sort of disruptive behaviour with this game. Thirdly, it'll attract swarms of umderage users who use this sort of thing and you can bet they will put fake ages on their cards and buy AP to feel "grown up." Furthermore IMVU should be investing on fixing long standing bugs which have been going on for months, sometimes even years. They should stop pushing shitty new features that nobody wants and fix the problems on the client.

What iShatteredSanity and Calypsio have said is pretty much the point of why this idea is not possible and it seems that you the OP only want this is.

It also seems to me that you are blatantly ignoring the cons of your idea...

*As Calypsio pointed out, the main feature of IMVU is chatting, that is what everyone is here for.

*As I've pointed out many times: What you are asking for is very costly and more than likely will not benefit IMVU in the long the term. I am not saying that IMVU does not the financial resources.

What I am saying is that IMVU is not going to invest their resources into something that seems that only You and you alone want. IMVU does not and has not ever implemented a feature based on one or a few people wanting it. The entire Community (meaning the Users) have to want this.

And since that is highly unlikely, especially since people can play actions games on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. There is no need to add such games here on IMVU.

I don't feel there is anything wrong with wanting to see a company branch out. After all it does have the potential to draw in more people, which could lead to making more money in the long term. Please note that I used the words potential and could. One could say that without taking a risk, a company will never know unless it tries. This is true, they wouldn't know unless they tried, but just going after an idea blind with no research is a poor business move and wouldn't be smart at all. Sometimes a blind jump ends up good, I would venture in my own opinion, that there are more fails than successes doing a blind jump into the fray though.

I do wish to take a moment and point out what I see as an illogical thought process for just a moment though. I had made mention that a good way for IMVU to measure to see if this idea had some potential by polishing up some of their existing games which would take less time and would give IMVU facts and figures to work with. To which my idea was met with the following reply on the lines of: "Don't polish anything, just create something and go with it." This in my opinion wouldn't be a very wise move, just because it takes less time to polish up what is already there and gather facts and figures to see if making something bigger would be worth making.

If IMVU has the time and resources to do that, that is really a moot point in my opinion. Why waste time and money if you don't have to? For a business that is about making money, wasting X time and Y money would be a foolish move. YAY!! we wasted money and time on something next to no one is using, and there is no way for us to recover the money we wasted putting into this project. Or they could do like a smart business would do and say, "Yes there are people that want this. We have resources already out there, let's gather more data, crunch numbers, and figure out if this would be a wise move."

I get two other standing stones that need to be addressed as well.

I understand that IMVU doesn't always make the smartest moves when it comes to releasing features. This could be seen as one of those, "Hey IMVU!! you constantly make odd choices. Just do your normal work stuff and do no research and just go with it." Which I personally would suggest IMVU to do more research and find out if things being released would be useful.

I also understand that this is the idea of the OP. They would like to see it happen. Why create an idea and ask for it to happen if you didn't? Sadly this is a trap that I think we all fall into at one point or another. We think of the next GREATEST idea and how great things would be if our idea was added. We don't always catch the negative side of what we are thinking about, nor do we want to hear the negative sides because it shatters our vision of the GREATNESS that our idea is. It's the nature of the beast, it really is. This is when I think people need to step back and remove the rose tinted glasses and take into consideration what people are saying, even if it might shatter our dream. Because as someone looking at the idea from the outside with no personal investment. Those are looking from the outside at the idea without those rose tinted glasses on.

With the glut of gaming sites ALL over the world wide web, why on earth do people insist that IMVU has to turn into one of them?!

IMVU is a "chat" universe. We come here to meet new people to chat with, and to shop, and to design outfits and rooms, etc., which is a "game" in and of itself. If I wanted to play some rootin', tootin' shootin' game, I can go to a gaming site designed for that. I can even invite my IMVU friends to join me there.

I would much prefer IMVU spend its money on fixing what is wrong with their current programming than to head off into an entirely different direction. There are too few good chat sites, but we're overloaded with gaming sites. Let it be, fer Pete's sake.

I or other potential reader out there get it you stand agree side at first and than you change your mind after reading Flaw being mention by other respondent , to me you are stand in middle side plus more into disagreement side.
I accept this Aegenia change vote from don't mind having Arumiel new features to start having doubt, questioning and implying INTEND TO DISAGREE IF WHAT AEGENIA MENTION IS NOT BEING CLEARED OUT BY ARUMIEL. I give up on you i don't want to convince you to agree , you are welcome to change your vote again as course of this Idea suggestion and Feedback thread "Provide TPS gameplay using IMVU Avatars" by Arumiel as thread goes on , YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE MY REPLY ANYMORE/DEPAND HOW MUCH NEGATIVITY I CAN REPEL, your question in what been quoted will be ignore , reason This ideas now getting more disagree expression from its reader, plus, I tired read negative stressful stress blow or punching bags for IMVU short hand on bugs fixing issues.
My Vote is Yes ABANDON IMVU old game feature,or none game feature that are rarely used consider TPS game, Action Fighting game this game have Fun addictive values.


There are a few things that need to be taken into consideration, and we can try and fool ourselves into thinking otherwise, but in my opinion it is what it is.

1. When we make a suggestion on adding or improving something we are trying to convince IMVU that this is a good thing to do.

2. I think that the user base also helps to influence that decision to a degree. In regards to this idea, this is part of the process of gathering data to see if it would be something to consider. After all, I believe it would be the user base that is playing these games and not staff. Though they may play them as well.

Even if IMVU hired a bunch of think tanks to create a list of pro's and con's of this idea, it's the users talking about these pro's and con's that help move things along. We are hashing out all of the finer details and saving them time from having to do all the foot work of hashing stuff out that has already been talked about.

My stand hasn't changed on the idea at all. I would love for them to add some games to the site. I just wouldn't want them to add anything on a whim and would want them to gather as much information as possible before coming to a final choice. That is my general stance on a lot of things that IMVU may add now or in the future. Don't just do, find out as much as possible from the user perspective to see if things are wanted to enhance the user experience. Step out of the hole of, "You think you want this, but you really don't." I can think of a pretty long list of things IMVU has done and they didn't enhance the user experience at all, but did the exact opposite.

To the OP

In defense of Aegenia....

What she is saying that while she thinks it's a good idea to add games, It is best for IMVU do to their research first to see if anyone else would want such games on this site. It is not smart for a business to invest time and money into a feature that maybe only a small percentage of users make like and use without doing some research

As for myself, if I want to play action games, I can simply turn on the PS4 that I own, put in either Skyrim, Fallout 4 or Diablo III and play those.

I do not see the need for action games to be on this site as what most people are here for is to Chat, Shop and Develop.

Lastly, as I said before...

What you are asking for even if IMVU wanted to implement it would take months, possibly a year or so implement. Also something that you are asking for would be more suitable for the consoles PS4 and Xbox One, which may I add would more than likely have a subscription to even access. Which is something that if IMVU implemented your suggestion it would not be free.

The Users would have to pay for it, there is no getting around that at all, because the money to invest in such a feature which would require upgrades to the engine and servers does have to come from somewhere and that somewhere is the IMVU Users.

IMVU is not a game.
IMVU is a social networking platform with a 3D client for the chatting.
After all IMVU stands for Instant Messaging Virtual Universe.


^^^^
This I agree with!


^this. i already feel imvu has addedd to many games. though i do enjoy the free fall demo, mixology, and walk off. its still too many games for a chatting website. it wouldnt be so bad if they made a couple more available in the client. i'd actually enjoy heirloom as a race with another user

~thread cleaned.

Everyone can disagree with any suggestion made, point out the flaws, express their opinions, etc... that is attacking the issue, and that is okay.

One cannot attack the people. Calling people names, questioning their intelligence, etc is also not appropriate. That is against the rules.

Also, a point of information, since I've seen it repeated in this thread many times... IMVU does not stand for ANYTHING. It never meant "Instant Messaging Virtual Universe" or anything of the sort. That has been established in many interviews with the creators.

~thread unlocked - remember attack issues, not people.
