<p>Wish list for additions to DM:</p><p><strong>Multiple exits:</strong> This way on the long dungeons you cant set up stages for people to leave instead of having to leave early and not getting rewarded if you leave via the entrance if exit at the end or having to run all the way back to the beggining if exit at the beggining.</p><p><strong>Exterior Designs:</strong> Totally awesome. I usually put some sort of arboratum or garden in my dungeon but it would be cool to have an exterior design to start with.</p><p><strong>Compeitions for themed</strong>:I posted this in another topic. I spent 2 days and a ton of plat on a custom dungeon called Palace of Pain and Pleasure II in Mistmoore on Unrest server and its gotten 3 visits. I spent 10 mins doing a no frills dungeon worth 114 mark thats a pretty easy run through and it gets visited like crazy. I hope a dungeon like that doesnt make the hall of fame. What would be cool.. devs could do competitions for themed dungeons.. charge like a 500 dm entry fee and devs can run them and rate them. I would suggest open to public but a guy does a sucky dungeon and has all his friends and guildess vote on it. I had a dungeon that was number 1 before rating system changed and the guy in second had his guild run mine and give it all negative reviews so I pulled the dungeon down.. of course with my luck, they chnage the rating system the next day which would have put me back at number 1.</p><p><strong>Flavor Text:</strong> I love this feature. Just wish it was working. I did a full story lined dungeon and the text rarley shows up. Need ALL the flavor text to show up each and every time.</p><p><strong>Spawners on top of objects: </strong>Yes, you can place them but they usually fall into the item once you go back in. I put the bones pile in a wheel barrel, really cool looking, but they fall under it.</p><p><strong>Dungeon Marks: </strong>Definately need more items to spend marks on. Temp adorns suck, armor - weapons suck, glass weapions suck, no end game user is going to ever need any of that. Boss mobs to expensive and random  packs.. well, still havent gotten a second boss yet.</p><p><strong>Walls and floor:</strong> Maybe some basic floor and walls samples that can be purchased and used just like the housing where you can click on the wall or floor and change the theme.</p><p><strong>Customizations: </strong>Linking mobs, additional patrol patterns for mobs instead of back and forth.  Ability to put in mini-quests to promote completion of the dungeon. Let me put loot on a boss mob and constantly be forced to supply it.</p><p><strong>Renaming: </strong>Easier way of renaming your dungeon instead of having to name it, design it, save layout, delete dungeon, create new and rename it and load layout.</p><p>Thats my wish list off the top of my head.. any thing else?</p><p>--------------------------------</p><p>Visit Palace of Pain and Pleasure II under Mistmoore on Unrest.</p>

<p>I don't believe there will be a rating system to satsify everyone. Just like the one for housing, some rich jerk will pay people to give his/her competition the lowest score, so their house will be #1. Without some serious programing, this problem will never be addressed. </p><p>I don't see the need for an exterior. By that time, the dungeon just becomes another house ... not that players are already using the dungeons for extra storage space ... but they are ... since many are unhappy on how buggy this whole dungeon idea is ...</p><p>The clippng issues NEED to be fixed. If a mob isn't walking through a wall, they're falling through something. I have a orc-snow warlock, who has a pet spider, which I wanted to set on a table. She keeps falling through, so her pretty white furry body is scuttling along a dirty floor. She's unhappy, and we know what happens when a woman is UNHAPPY ...</p><p>I agree, flavor text needs to be fixed.</p><p>I like the extra gear, which you can buy, withe the tokens. Not all players are heavy raiders, and some won't raid at all. As for more items, and such, they take time. The idea is fairly new, so give it a couple of months ...</p><p>Ideas such as, constantly "restocking" a boss, will kill player-made-dungeons rather quickly. A boss having the ability, to randomly generate a piece of gear or item, would be a better choice. But what would you use it for? Will it be used for avatars or for your character? As always, more questions than answers ...</p><p>The ability to edit your dungeon's title, should have been there at the release. Sadly, as always, hind sight is 20/20.</p>

<p>One thing I would REALLY love to see added is an "agro range visual indicator". Where, as you place a dungeon monster, on the floor at its feet would be a colored ring that shows how far out the NPC will social agro, so you can see exactly how far apart you need to keep the mobs to avoid having the whole room pile on a person who sneezes wrong.</p>

<p>One thing i believe DM needs badly is the ability for dungeon crafters to incorporate a story.</p><p>After trying to grind dungeons to get 500 marks for a piece of armor i started getting really bored. </p><p>Oh and playing my own toon would be nice too.  The avatars suck.</p>

<p>The ability to see if you have a spawner in your toolkit when you are browsing the broker or perhaps randoming in a group, like how collection items work.</p><p>Also would like to see a variety of pc races (and gender) and classes added to the spawner drops</p>

<p>I really could use a spawning point different from entrance portal for when a player dies. </p><p>When in `design mode` the re-spawn point on death is different from the entrance portal. Unfortunately this is not the case after is has been published</p>

The monsters all came through the walls and was a big pile up to deal with. So in addition to Vashte's suggestion, I would like to see a height indicator as well. So that those monsters on the second and third floors stay put until the player gets to them.  I would like to see a way that walls are solid and that monsters or players can not go through them, or pull through them. </p>

<p>Has anyone heard if there will be new maps or bosses added at any point? I really really want a natural looking dungeon (for now it's boatloads of grassy squares and trees :/ ) and I have a themed story dungeon that I can't finish because I would love some bosses that make sense to add to it. I have three bosses on my entire account, it's fairly pathetic lol.</p>
