Blue Zones

Postby planetgary » 23 Jan 2021, 08:26

Hi,
I've had an idea for a new Zone called a Blue Zone.

Blue Zones are random zones in that they appear “out of the blue”.
They essentially "take over" existing Zones, changing the zone colour to blue.
They are transient, appearing for a minimum of 30 minutes and no longer than 60 minutes.
After 60 minutes, or once taken by a Turfer, the Blue Zone resets to its previous status.
They offer double maximum Points, e.g. 2 x 185 plus 50 Neutral Bonus.
There are no Points Per Hour associated with a Blue Zone.
Any existing Zone can become a Blue Zone at any time.
How many would appear and where they would appear I leave to the Zone Wizards.
Would suggest 1 Blue Zone appears for every 100 existing Zones.

So, imagine you are out Turfing. You see a Blue Zone on your mobile and want those points, but don’t know how long it will be there for. You make a mad dash for it, hoping it will not vanish before your very eyes. Of course, you see other Turfers all doing the same. All good fun! Perhaps a Blue Zone Medal as well?

No doubt this may have been suggested before and the coding may be a nightmare, so no worries if not suitable.

Never seen it suggested. It's a decent idea and I suspect your intentions are for Turfers to become active when they see there's a blue zone around. I might even go so far as to make the points 3x to make it happen. Furthermore I think the timespan need to be increased a lot. Maybe make it ...4 hours every time.

Yes, that's the idea. To add a bit of excitment, the thrill of the chase, not knowing when it will vanish and just adding more fun!

Yes, longer time period sounds good. My idea is just bare bones, happy to see it evolve.

Did you know we have a little thing called Turfo? Turfo appears in any zone in the world and waits for someone to visit. And after that transfers to any other zone around the world. If you find him you will find your name on the list that can be found under the Turfo option here: https://turfgame.com/info

No medal unfortunately.

Is this still a thing he has not been found for a long time... maybe some hints should be given for he is currently residing?

Has not been taken for more than 1 year? Maybe more. I think that if Turfo is not found within 60 days Turfo should go to another zone.

Had a similar idea as a april fools day joke back in 2016... The idea was that the blue zone only appeared when you were in it. Fooled a neighbor of mine!!
