User Content Changes

User Content Changes -

Flying Lab has announced several changes to the way they handle user content in Pirates of the Burning Sea, which they hope will help streamline the process of getting user made content into the game.

2D User Content has been phenomenally successful over the last several years—in some ways, too successful! While we still want to review flags and sails personally give focused feedback where needed, within the next month or so we’ll be introducing some changes to help streamline and even out the process. Here’s what you can look forward to in User Content 2.0:

• “Kitten Wars” style voting—instead of giving each flag a 1-5 rating, you’ll compare two flags or two sails and pick the one you think is the best. You’ll then be shown instantly another pair to rate. Once a submission gets a certain number of “hot” votes, it’s sent to the Devs for final approval. On the other hand, if it gets passed up for other submissions too many times, it will be sent back to you for more work.
• Even distribution of votes—the User Content system will randomise what flags or sails you see and rate, so everything should benefit from equal community scrutiny.
• Rewards for participation—the more flags and sails you rate, the more you’re entitled to have in review at any given time, up to a suitably comfortable limit. It will “cost” votes to submit a design, so for every flag or sail you want to submit, you’ll need to rate other submissions.
• Less waiting—you should know within a few days whether your flag or sail is ready for the game, and if not, receive useful feedback to help it get there.
• Email response when your flag or sail has been reviewed or approved.
