So I had sort of shower thought the other day about the campaign mode I figured I could share here. I feel the game really needs a little flavor to entice you to stay in a campaign other than watching the numbers go up. Some version of this may already be planned with the “News & Messages Archive” or the Grand Campaign, I’m not sure.
I think it would be neat to be able to take press shots for your marketing. Then at the end of the year (or whenever makes sense) your pics would be used in a generated newspaper clipping, magazine cover, or online article depending on the year. The titles could be based on any sort of achievements (or failures) your company or cars have accomplished. For example: “Your Company Named Premium Brand of the Year” or “The Facelifted Model 1 Trim 1 Continues to Be a Best Seller.” The article could have a small blurb based on the car’s stats and sales.
Another direction to take that is with brief car reviews and comparisons. Something like a “1998 Luxury Shootout” for the title and a statement or two like “The Model 1 is best in class in (insert stat above competitors), but falls short with (insert low stat) making a rival company’s car our pick for best luxury car of the year.”
I think stuff like this would help players develop a sort of headcanon or even create rivalries against AI companies which would make some players more invested in their playthrough. I understand if it would for a nightmare for translation etc. though.
Y’all feel free to post more suggestions below, this thread doesn’t have to be only about this idea .
