This is a thought that has been in my head for a while now.  When a player has come to the point I have (all quests completed, no more expansions available), there is zero point to the Lab's existence, ever since Alchemy Adventure's removal.  So, I was thinking, since once a player collects quest item (E.G. Phlegma's felt rug, chocolate, a vial of oil, etc.) it remains in his backpack forever with no way to remove it, wouldn't it be great if we could enter the lab even when we "do not have current experiment", and experiment on our own, able to use most everything we've collected thus far?  I feel like this would add a lot of additional educational value, as we form our own hypotheses, test them, and refine them, using the Scientific Method.  Isn't that what this game is all about?

Yes! I have already thought of the idea and back this one up whole-heartedly.  That would be a ton of fun!

I back this idea completely.  It would take a while for the Admins and Devs to make, bu it would be totally worth it in my mind.

    Hi, I'm Lack Lunason. I'm called that because I lack many things, and I'm a lunatic. I just put son on the end to make it sound more like a viking name. I'm also a Christ follower.

  7. And I'm slightly crazy.

     I've been around SoD for a long time. I think I was one of the first thousand to leave Berk and sail to the school. I'm happily part of the bold clan known as POTATO BROTHERS. I have over four-thousand trouphies, although, I don't like racing much. On the other hand, I'm a Master Farmer.  (Don't you dare ask me how fishing is going!  We don't speak of that!)

I lost my way on a stormy past, got wrecked in starless night....

But let my heart be wrecked by hurricanes and my ship by stormy weather....

I know I am a Hero...and a Hero is....FOREVER!

In another time, another place, I could have been a King....

But in my castle's ruined towers the lonely seabirds sing.....

I burned up my Tomorrows, I cannot go back ever....

But I am still a Hero....and a Hero is.......FOREVER!

Up with your sword and strike at the gale......

Ride the rough seas for those waves are your home......

Winters may freeze but our hearts do not fail.....

Heroes.......Hearts......FOREVER!

You are never alone if the sea is your friend......

Riding the waves of impossible quests.....

If it doesn't end well, then it isn't the end.....

A Hero.....Fights.....FOREVER!

The hero cares not for a wild winter's storm.....

For it carries him swift on the back of the wave.....

All may be lost and our hearts may be worn.....

BUT A HERO.....FIGHTS.....FOREVER!"

This is a cool idea. It would definitely make the lab be useful again once you've done all the quests. A few days ago I also had an idea concerning the lab. I thought it would be cool if they redid it to where you can enter it and walk around it like you can the Great Hall and one of the Hideouts on Dragon's Edge.(I think it's the Riders' club house or something) There could be all kinds of scientific stuff in it and 2 tables you could walk up to and click on: a table that lets you play Alchemy Adventure(yes, I'm suggesting that it should be returned to the game XD) and a table that activates "experiment mode"(basically like when you enter the lab now when you're doing a quest). I just think the lab should have more of a purpose than what it does right now so that's why I came up with that idea.

 

(Sorry if it seemed like I was trying to hijack your post by posting my idea. I wasn't trying to do that. I just figured that since we were talking about the lab that I'd share my idea as well. :))

I love your idea! I also think that removing alchemy adventure was completely unnecessary.

Actually...

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe this was a thing (kinda) back when alchemy adventure was an in-game minigame. You could just mix stuff around, melt them, make them solid and the typical stuff, not much more.

I only remember being able to enter the lab and do experiments when you had to for a quest. You couldn't enter the lab and do experiments if you didn't have a quest telling you to do so.

I know I’m late

I know I'm like 2 years late, but maybe more coments will bring this to the attention of the devs! And I never got a chance to try the lab minigame cause I probably only joined the game around late 2020!

first, a little info about me:

 

In game name: SynthiaXtheXSincere

Forum name: Synthia the Sincere, but you can call my Synthia

Viking name: Synthia (duh)

Irl name: why d'ya wanna know that, huh? HUH!?!

Age: not an adult yet (Lol)

Favorite color: Lavender/purple (that'll be very obvious soon)

Favorite food: pizza

Favorite desert: most of them

Favorite dragon: Dreadstrider

Main in game dragons: Sheera (razorwhip used for battle, racing, and DT), Sk.ystrike (dreadstrider used for racing, and for some reason, her name is censored in the forum), Hora (hobblegrunt used for battle and DT), and finally, Dart (I use dart for battle, racing, and DT)

Main dragon (not in game): Starlight (my Nightlight)

What I like to do in SoD (I finished all my quests): Battle events to save up gems for expansions, racing (only sometimes), and DT! I rarely do fireball frenzy, but I still do it sometimes

Things about me you should know: I am obsessed with purple, I say lol and duh a lot (don't take offence if I say that).

Ooooh, yes!

I have to agree with this... I remember playing around with the lab during quests and being a bit sad when I couldn't go there outside of quests. And there's all these minigames I keep hearing about which were removed that I never go tto play...

__________________

Good day to you! I am BeautifulHorse, the Loyal, the Brave, the ever-enthusiastic dragon rider. I came to School of Dragons after getting hooked on the the HTTYD Trilogy, Dreamworks Dragons series' and all assiciated content. I play in fits and starts. At first I spend through the game lightning fast, finishing all expansions in perhaps a week or two, and now I play at a slower pace. I have (almost) banished the quest arrow, and enjoy using the spoils on endless farming and battles to furnish my hideout, while re-experiencing the game with a second viking.

 

Meet some of my dragons!

The ever-adorable Ruffrunner

Farcry the Singetail. I've been rewatching RTTE and I have become obsessed with Singetails and the noise they make when they puff out their fireballs... if only it was in-game.

Tiny the Adorable, *cough* Terrible Terror. Can he please climb up on my shoulder?

Bobble the Hobgobbler. Gotta love these little guys.

And lastly, Sandy the Sand Wraith! What's that, Sandy is on a mission to get a titan rune? Oh well, you'll have to see Spotter instead. 

I genuinely love playing School of Dragons, and I would love to see more expansions like all the rest of us. But what I would love to see more is bug fixes, improvements to the dragons' animations and ambient nioses, missing islands being added to the map, and a bit more of the history and day-to-day life in berk. If there are any of the game staff looking all the way down here, I know it isn't easy making a running a game. I've tried to do animation myself and I have gotten very frustrated by it! Thank you for the game and I look forward to what is to come.

Here's a post where I go more into detail on what I would like to see.

There used to be a mini game in the lab but it wasnt experiments

Returning player from 2017 here and i think the lab used to be a candy crush kinda thing? 
honestly do not miss it but I wish they'd improved it instead of scrapped it

They replaced the eels game with jumping eels everywhere that you can shoot which is adorable but I do miss the eels game, it was a little comparable to fireball friendzy but I seriously hate fireball. I find the two controls way too hard and wish it was a single tap to the target

 

also dragon tactics was always 'under construction' and now it my favourite so yeah. Info dump that probably doesn't help but it's just cool how the developers have evolved the game past the obvious multiple and amazing expansions

Er...

I appreciate the thread-bump (no, really, I'm serious), but... isn't this a little off-topic?  I know there used to be a mini-game in the Lab; I addressed that in the OP ("...ever since Alchemy Adventure's removal").  As for the other things you mention... this thread has nothing to do with those, so I really don't see a reason to bring them up?  I'm a little bit confused...
