Bar Layout Selector

Recommended Posts

So this idea popped into my head last shift and i can't seem to find a template to follow for submitting suggestions, but it's more or less this:

 

Suggestion:

What if the bartender had the option to select the layout of the bar from a pre-designed list of layouts, much like the holodeck they could select the layout, preview it, then confirm it, which would lock them out from future changes of that type, and would instead require normal tools and materials to make further changes like normal.

 

This would allow the bartender to save time on getting the bar looking different from its usual layout shift to shift and make it less static.

It could make use of already existing systems such the engine selector, where say the bartender starts with this little doodad and the bars doors bolted, uses that to preview the layout, and then confirm it, and then once that's done it removes itself and the bar unlocks.

As for the layouts themselves, they could be submitted by players for review, each design would of course need to account for pre-existing things such as the disposals lines and slot machines, unless the slot machines can be removed/placed via the holodeck method

This was the layout that inspired this concept, as the bar itself now works in tandem with the kitchen, compared to separately "We never did finish the upper area"

I like the idea of the bar having different layouts in the holodeck style of things. Though I guess the question becomes what options are available and what happens if that holo-computer for the bar layout is emagged? Do you unlock a rage-cage layout with a space bear in it? Lol

lol, would be kind of funny but it wouldnt so much be a computer terminal itself, but be more akin to the little doodad the CE gets to choose the engine, the CE uses it to preview engine types, selects the engine and then the doodad poofs away. 

The concept for the bar layout changer would be similar, one little doodad, preview your selections, then once its confirmed it poofs away.

Would it be similar to the way the chaplain chooses their equipment?

Yup, a one use doodad that lets them preview the layout, then confirm it, after which point further changes to the layout would have to be done the old fashioned manual way.
