Shiny New Zone Revamp
Every once in awhile, a zone in a MMORPG simply needs a bit of polish,
love, and a large bit of redoing. Recently, the Hollow zone in City of
Heroes underwent a complete redo, and City of Heroes' level designer,
Melissa "War Witch" Bianco, took a moment to jot done exactly what she
did in each area. Check it out!
I wanted to make the transition from City zone to
Hazard zone less
painful, especially since new players are 'forced' to go there by a
Contact. I made this neighborhood a standard 'city' spawn zone. What
this means is that I made the spawns "do-able" by solo players up to
groups of three, which is pretty standard for a city zone. I also kept
the roads free of bad guys so that, within reason, players could get
around Cherry Hills without massive difficulty.
