In the next version of the game you will see the option Casting... though it may look a little different than expected.
One of the zagwozdek, you have a beginner players not familiar so much with the world of film, and playing in the Movie Business, is overwhelming the number of artists in the game, and a multitude of statistics and the resulting difficulty deciding who commit to your production. This barrier is difficult especially at the beginning of the meeting, when the player does not know even the rules governing the World game.
In an attempt to resolve this issue, I decided to make an option to help you a bit of the decision-making process when choosing the cast to our film by reducing the amount of available developers for the role.
During the production of the film a new option will be added it is called Casting. Its goal will be to narrow down the list of available creators to a dozen or so (depending on the level of the player – the lower the list will be shorter) most suited to a given role. In its casting algorithm, the game will include:
- requirements for the role (occupation, gender),
- the type of role (actor, supporting role, episodic),
- movie genre and creators of the parameters most important for this species,
- the target group of the film,
- script level
The casting algorithm also takes into account the budget available to the player, as well as additional filters applied by the player. (You can specify the maximum budget you want to spend on a given role before casting and it will be taken into account during the casting.
The option of casting can be used any number of times without any additional costs or consequences.
A few comments. Casting does not provide the optimal choice for a given role. These are rather proposals of creators who have the predisposition to check in it. This is a facilitation mainly for novice players to help in the first few films and protect against completely wrong choices.
More advanced players should rely on their own experience and intuition. Although perhaps for less significant roles they will also use this option (when, for example, they will not want to spend too much time on choosing episodic creators).
So much for Casting, and besides, it's all the best in the New Year!
