Linked Draft Proposal
Instead of spawning only in genesis plaza, add a feature to spawn where you desire to.
@SirDropBear and a lot of community members would like to spawn in different locations besides genesis plaza. I think it would be great to be able to spawn at any place on the map.
Always spawning in genesis plaza can get rather boring and sometimes it would be nice to be able to spawn elsewhere. I imagine having a house on a parcel and being able to spawn there when I load the client so it feels you load into your home within Decentraland. Or even spawn at a favorite location.
If this proposal passes, the Foundation should implement a new setting on the Decentraland reference client. Such a setting would be called “Default Spawn Location” and it would allow the user to appear:
- On Genesis Plaza (the current default)
- On a custom location (which the user can decide)
- On the last position where the user closed the client (which doesn’t sync across different browsers/clients)
See “Implementation pathways” below for more details.
Best case scenario, you can set a location to where you will spawn in. Instead of Genesis plaza.
Mid case Scenario: Being able to spawn at the location you logged off or last visited.
So many of the community love grinding various games and would love to spawn there.
The reference client should have a new Setting, called “Default Spawn Position” with three options:
- Genesis Plaza (0,0)
- Last Position
- Custom Position
If the third option is selected, then an input is enabled that allows the user to select one fixed position for their client to start.
The second option does not require the last position to be synced across different browsers/clients (it should be treated as a local setting, such as the sound volume)
This is a low-hanging fruit that would make many members of the community happy!
