As I’ve spent the last couple days blindly fumbling my way through building a mod for my server, I’ve been thinking about things I’d think would make neat additions to the game. So I thought I’d share them here, because why not.
Here we go.
More diverse face options at character creation: I know I’ve harped on this before, both here and back on the Steam forums, but it really is kind of ridiculous that anyone playing a race that isn’t white has like one or two male and female options that look at all appropriate, and then a bunch of faces with clearly Caucasian features with different skin tones.
Tier 0: I’ve already mentioned this in an earlier thread, but one thing I’d really like is a set of rickety wood and/or thatch Tier 0 building pieces, maybe given on spawn or unlocked at level two. This would both feel a bit more realistic (what would someone just starting out in that situation do, throw up a crappy shelter made of sticks, or start building stone walls around sturdy wooden frames?), and it would make Tier 1 feel like more of an achievement, especially if it was pushed back a bit.
Hair, makeup, and character modification: Okay, imagine you’re gonna nail someone to a cross in a desert and leave them to die. Do you stop to let them make sure their hair is looking fly and their eye wings on point? I don’t know about you, but I probably wouldn’t bother. So here’s my idea: starting out, your only options for hairstyles are messy, bedraggled looks of various length, and you get zero makeup. Then later on you would get the option to change your hair, trim your eyebrows, and add makeup through a feat or something, or maybe even learning neat cultural styles from NPCs out in the world.
Make new exiles limp for a while: Because come on, the game starts with your character nailed to a cross. Would they really be in any shape to jog over hot sand after that?
Swimming crocodiles: Even if they don’t attack you in the water. It’s pretty ridiculous to see a crocodile chasing after me by walking along the bottom of the river. Heck, while we’re at it make them float motionless like logs and sun themselves on the riverbank with their mouths open too.
More recycled Age of Conan emotes: Yeah Funcom, you may think you’re slick but I recognize some of those emotes from AoC’s character selection screen. So as long as you’re reusing emotes from that game, let’s get a few more. Specifically the ones that let your character pick their nose, fart, and pick a wedgie.
Add flags to the Khitai DLC: The Aquilonia DLC got two, it’s not fair!
Anyway that’s all my ideas, bye.
