Yeah, Easter is coming and I was thinking of this idea long time ago (more than 1 year) and finally decided to suggest it. In my opinion an Easter egg hunting (randomly spawned eggs) would be awesome add-on in April like present hunting in December. All the same, just these things would be different:
In chat would appear: Rabbit lost an egg in ....., help him find ..... eggs!
Command to check how many have you collected: /eggs.
Prizes: same as presents.
Thanks for reading, hope you like my idea, feel free to post your opinion and vote. That's all, have a nice day / weekend.  :)

It's a possibility, but i wouldn't count on the reward to be the same as Christmas presents.

Personally I just like the idea of having the ability to run around and find things like that. I'd still do it if we didnt gain anything from finding them besides having more found than your friends

Agree with you here. Unfortunately people on CT seem to care only for money, and not the fun factor of it.



My thoughts are (for this):

5 easter egg models chosen at random.
Fixed monetary (positive) and wanted (negative) value(s) on said models.
Spawn 1 in a random location.
Announce 5 mins before its due to drop then announce when it drops
Gangzone on map at the radius its at

Like gta v crate drop system :)

So you could get wanted for picking up a bad egg?

This pretty much explains how it'd like when it'll be implemented (tho its still your thought).
And yes keep it as no-reward type. It should be for fun not for money.

Yes that is an absolute perfect twist Joshy, would make cop more interesting (almost always a suspect) and you wouldnt know if you're picking up a bad egg or something. But might I add, in the case that cops arent on I have two ideas: 1. once you collect 5 easter eggs you become unwanted. or 2. After becoming wanted there is a 10% chance eggs will contain a pardon or a "get out of jail for free card" and you lose your wanted level. I like the latter personally. If cops are online you can still achieve to become unwanted by the method, but obviously they will probably be after you.

Also: dont post up the location of the egg spawn on cop's chat if this is implemented. It will encourage them to camp in case a player picks up a bad egg

Yup. Joshy explained it well. I'd make it so you CAN still become unwanted if you manage to find another egg the next time one spawns. However if you're wanted from other means your wanted level stays, BUT it'll still count if you get a "bad egg" :)

Edit: or there will be bribes from single player that spawn for the player that fortunately unfortunately got wanted. They'll have a set time to pick said bribe up before it wont remove it anymore?

See: http://gta.wikia.com/Police_Bribes

Another edit: I'll also hard-code it so cops/theives cannot pick up presents anymore while i'm at it

I like to edit ok:

I'll leave this open for discussion instead of rushing ahead with it and ending up with the end product nobody likes.

This. Why to complicate it guys? My suggestion was about finding eggs and get some money for them like at present hunting. In real life I also get money from ladies on Easter Monday.  :)) But I'd prefer egg hunting just for fun without any reward too.  ;)

I gave them enough time lol :)) I think it isn't that hard to script eggs instead of presents and rename the present hunting things in the chat, command, etc. But okay I will be patient, I just hope they're working on it and it will be added during next week :)

One, i'm busy most days now, i only get an hour or two to play CT and do my duties as a moderator then go offline again, Joshy, Tyler and Matias (not sure about tyler 100% here) are busy also.

Attitude like "I gave them enough time" makes me want to not code this to be honest.

You said it yourself: its secret hush hush stuff

If we require testing of anything we have carl/the rest of the dev team to do it. As for the sandus expansion thats an entirely different topic not meant for suggestions. Sandman answered it pretty well.

As for this topic. I'm going to lock it BUT i'm keeping it in locked & closed suggestions for next year if im still here that is.

Easter 2015 has passed. This may be considered for next year.
