Hey! I’m part of the team creating a figure skating game, and so far our lobby (which is our whole map, but the ice rink in the middle is not accessible most of the time) is looking a little boring.
Here are our planned features so far:
Photo shoot area
Spawn area (in the form of a cabin)
Scenic buildings and terrain (some of which already added)
I would just recommend filling the whole outside with houses so that players can’t escape and stay in the lobby. I know you mentioned Scenic buildings so hopefully they are connected to give it a more of a closed lobby so players remain inside the lobby.
Regarding you have most of the important details planned out which would work for an lobby, you could perhaps throw in a sort of ‘shop area’. Where you can get different equipment - clothes - stuff related to the game if ever needed in your case.
Instead I would try adding things to do when players are interacting with each other in lounge places, maybe small games ect; when players get bored. Making your lobby look interesting and appealing could help keep players in, just to note if you plan on filling empty corners or areas with building. Consider having a variety of kinds so it doesn’t look repetitive.
Otherwise it seems you got most of the things planned out.
