hints, suggestions and more annoyances [size=59](… and some other stuff that’ll probably be forgotten)[/size]:
Add news of some sort:
… and other relevant news:
would increase the popularity effect of a charity gig for the “Homes For Cats”
The news could be be a reimplemented version of the ‘Kudos’ restaurant thing (“Pizza Palace is cheap but it’s pretty uncool, isn’t it”) ~ Sometimes somebody says something or a ‘news flash’ appears that shows relevant advice.
You could buy a book or subscription to a music magazine which would get you all the good information at once (like the ‘movie guide’)
-ability to book your own charity gigs (that’s likely how it would work in the ‘real’ world)
If you book your own show it should amount to more publicity than if they ask you
[list]This would also allow you to negotiate the RS_CHARITY_GIG_MULTIPLIER
This would increase your popularity and incite National TV to interview you[/list:u]
-ability to take a rain-check
immediately after a show, the national newspaper wants to do a spot but the band is too exhausted and they all don’t show up. There should be a ‘Put off for 3 days’ button or something.
This could likely cause even more publicity as the TV show hypothetically says:
-ability to play covers
[size=84](from the news)[/size]
- “Hey, let’s do a cover of ‘Next to the cactus’ at our SpaceDome show next Tuesday, it’ll be a big hit”
A cover of ‘Next to the cactus’ following a news announcement like this should add to the show response (more CD sales, bigger turnout, greater fame gain)
(overall more integration with other bands)
(when just beginning)
This would increase publicity and awareness as all the people that came just to hear ‘Guitar Brothers’ will probably stay to hear “Gemstone” and some of them will like it.
-the cancel button on the promo page -
click on web promo 'cause that might do well given the circumstances but there’s also a choice for a local radio interview which might do better… able to compare side-by-side - choose one, cancel, choose the other, see better success with the first and go back and do it;
or just put the ‘% reachable’ message on the main “what’s happening today” page (as in):
There should also (or alternatively) be a cancel button on the page after you accept the offer to do a radio interview (for example) so that if you see it’ll only reach 5% of your audience you can cancel and do something more effective.
-band-members should acknowledge when you buy something new.
-silence after a few minutes;
-the practice thing with the notes (simon), they don’t line up.
screen shows ‘5,3,3’ sound plays 3, screen shows ‘1,3’ sound plays ‘3,1’ screen shows ‘3,3,1,5’
does this happen for anybody else or is it just as a result of my rubbish instrument?
-there should be, when a new gig from another band is playing tonight, after “seeing this band will cost you $45”, a “you’ve already seen this band once”, “you’ve never seen them perform before”, “you have been to 3 shows by this band so far” or just “previous shows attended: 2” (am I just gonna just get +25 inspiration outta this or will I get a new riff, too?)
-when you take a day off, the ‘tiredness’ progress bar should go down instead of just showing ‘how tired he was before today’
-I added a new rehearsal spot (“Bassist’s Pad - It’s semi-roomy, comfortable and free. It’ll do in a pinch and If the neighbors complain, so what!”) but there’s only room for 8 on the ‘Rehearsal’ page (can’t see the ‘Use’ button for the ‘Beachfront Studio’)
This page should be expandable/scrollable | have another tab | not list the unavailable ones [size=75](i.e. if you don’t have more than $50 it wouldn’t even list the ‘Large Rehearsal Studio’ or if your fame is more than 299 or less than 101 it wouldn’t list the ‘Recording Studio’)[/size] | as you get better/bigger the lower-end studios could drop off the list | the size of the box could shrink to fit more | something better that I can’t even think of right now.
Of course those options are only necessary if there are more than 8 spots.
-I added some merchandise and the line structure is similar to the ‘tshirts’ line but after a show it doesn’t give the sales results on the GIGSCREEN, even if I add a seemingly appropriate line in ‘strings.ini’.
Is there something else I’m missing?

That’s all for now, more on this later.
