I've been thinking about the heart system - do you guys prefer the old system:

Black
Grey
White
Purple
Etc...

Or the new system they've been using in HM games, using different numbers of hearts to show how much people care about someone else?

Or could you combined the two - show different numbers of white hearts for how much you like someone, then when they reach 10 white hearts they're moved over to one purple, and after 10 purple, they move up to one blue?

Also - what is the easiest way for you to keep track of relationships and remember to edit heart levels when you have the opportunity? I think it helps to have a link in your sig, so you can post then *click!* and you're transpoted to your profile for editing, but could we do anything that would make the process easier for everyone?

I like the combination idea, like in BTN where it took a while for relationships to build. Also this makes relationship a slower, more enjoyable process, and one stray mishap won't be as bad...

Any particular reason as to why Falka?

Hmm, I think I like the new one in a sense, and a combined wouldn't be bad. It would move the relationship slower, but still use the color system, which would make it easier to gauge. Someone gives you a *heart* gift you love? Then you give them two or three white hearts, neh?

But yes. happy1.gif Your comments are much appreciated! I'm just trying to figure out how to make it easiest for everyone involved... maybe put a link in there somehow... >.>

Um, ten each seems a little high.

How about


Black(10)<---(3)Grey<---White--->Purple(3)--->Blue(5)--->Green(7)--->Orange(10)

(#) Is distance from white.
And Romance could be a different scale.

Considering 2-3 RPs with a character ups a heart level, 10 is perfectly fine.

However, I prefer the old system. I think the new system isn't much different than the old one, except there aren't colors. I like it simplier, although the new system allows more flexibility. However, I would not like a mix of the two systems. Too confusing.

I prefer the old one, and part of the reason is just cuz I'm used to it. But colors are a lot easier to work with then numbers if hearts, I think. I agree with Rose, that the colors + numbers mixed would a bit confusing.

Hmm, then are you guys alright with updating it how it is, or is it simple enough for now?

Haha, I consider the multiple hearts the old system, but only because of the SNES version. xD But yeah, I get it since for long time, it was the colored one.

As for me, I like the old system (colored hearts) more, but I think combining the two systems would be really interesting. It doesn't hurt to try things out. Why do I like the old system more? I guess I just find it easier to remember and pretty, haha. Though, yeah, I agree combining the two systems might be confusing for some people. For me, I might not have any trouble with it. *shrugs*

Anyways, for the system we have now, I have no problem updating it as long as I remember to actually update it when I finish RPing with someone. It is a simple enough system and easy to understand. happy1.gif

You guys bring up good points. To keep it simple lets stay old style.


Number of hearts seems like it would slow things down a lot for some reason.
