Hi Mark! I absolutely love the game and spend an unhealthy amount of time on it lol. I just wanted to give some suggestions
Award Shows - I think that the simulation overall in this area could be improved, most of the most acclaimed albums/singles/videos never end up with a single award despite having massive sales. Most awards go to people never even heard of in the game.
Remix Albums - Remix albums would be a nice touch, say an artist wants to increase their hype with a remix album they could do it similar to a greatest hits album just with remixes. Like Dua Lipa's "Club Future Nostalgia" or Lady Gaga's "Dawn Of Chromatica"
Artists in general - It would be nice if we could add more depth to our characters with more options that have to do with themselves for example say an artist doesn't like to tour or the artist is starting a family and going on hiatus. More detail options would be nice
Subgenres - Subgenres would be nice to just to give a little depth into the work an artist is creating.
Public/Fan reaction - It would be lovely if there was a section similar to the Wendy Williams section of the Media section. This area could benefit as an area where you could see public and fan reaction to the work put out.
Press Conferences - It would be nice if you could set up press conferences in different places around the world similar to autograph signing's
Tour Extensions - Tour extended could be a nice addition in order to increase ticket sales and hype longevity, say an artist is about to break a tour sales records but can because the tour is about to end.
Notifications when an artist has gone gold/platinum in the home menu
Overall artist customization options - Like the real world it would be nice if artists could change it up a bit every release to keep that sense of mystery (Genre, Name, Ways the promote)
More ways of promotion - TV ads, Billboards, Merch, Brand Collabs would be a nice addition to the single/album release screen when promoting.
ALSO! (I know its a lot) I heard you're upgrading the UI, It would be nice if there was a database of random picture that could serve as albums covers for all the albums released in the game just to make it unique. They could show up when an award show is announcing it's noms or on the charts screen.
So much love keep up the amazing work!!!! ❤️
