I feel like the main hub is quite the most empty place of all hive without the limited-time event stuff (Halloween, Christmas…) It wouldn’t be the same but with normal hub there’s nothing I mean sure there is the camp, castle, docks and the villages but it doesn’t have any NPCs unlike in the arcade hub where there is Mark (the robot dude) and some other ones so here my ideas:
a British guy with a tophat, costume, monocole if you try talk with him he’ll say something like:“hello there mister (your username) nice day we’re having eh?”
some Australian swimmers in the beach, docks that have sunglasses, summer accessories and they say:" what’s up mate?, Wanna hit the beach?"
and some normal citizens inside/outside the houses, shops and they say:" hello there friend, how are things?"
and some secret ones in the far away islands, docks like a pirate, skeleton…
Now these were some examples of some NPCs that COULD be added if the hive did a “main hub content update” so I know this is too much but think about the quality of life that could be in the main hub if these were added!
I think the idea is a great one because the hub feels empty but as an Australian I can see people getting offended over the generalisation of their culture so maybe as @FoxicArcher said they could put staff members as npcs
As someone who is aussie, I like this idea except for what they say, Someone aussie would say something like"Gday… hey, do you wanna go to the beach fora swim? I heard from one of my mates the water’s warm"
I personally think that the Hive would be able to add NPCs without stereotyping cultures. Seeing as they’ve had many human NPCs in the past, I don’t think it would be that hard to just make them all speak in the same style that they have before .
