I apologize beforehand if there's already a thread about this.
I was playing FarCry the other day and I was thinking about how their map creation kit is something that could essentially work in WoW. Right now scenarios as they are, are not very popular; at least with most of the players I talk to. Since there are no rewards from the scenario itself and all scenarios have a structured formula (complete objective X move to point Y to advance story). I was thinking that they could add a scenario development kit that could support player made content. This would be in game, it would be accessed via the farm since that's already a phased zone for your character. You access it once you have gotten the inn upgrade from Tina Mudclaw, the book that lets you set your farm to your hearthstone would have an extra option to create these scenarios.
Basically for these custom scenarios you would start off by picking a map based on existing scenarios, the map would come with all the foliage and large buildings that you would see on the original scenario (these cannot be changed/moved). However you would be able to place starting locations, enemy bases/spawn points. You can also place all the NPC's, create the entire script for the scenario (following certain guidelines of course). All of this would have a cap of a set amount of resource points for your map, in other words you can't add more than the resource cap allows you to. This will be done for memory issues so the maps aren't too large. The players will also be allowed to write all the objectives as well as what the NPC's will say (obviously in the chat box, no voice acting). Finally these scenarios won't reward gold or loot they will be separate on the queue list and there will be a way to browse the scenarios by ranking or popularity. The reason they shouldn't reward anything is in case people exploit the system to make 1-2min long scenarios for gold/loot rewards.
When playing custom made scenarios players will be allowed all of the same features that you get from a regular scenario as well as an extra function. Players will be given the option to rate a scenario after they are finished with it. These ratings will be sent via in game mail, anonymously, to the creator. If you rank in the top 1000 you will get a Feat of Strength achievement with your ranking. If your scenario is in the top 100 you will also receive a unique mount, transmog set, tabard and a large sum of gold.
What do you guys/gals think? Would you like to see something like this implemented, or how would you do it better?
