Well here we are, just a couple months or so left in 2019. It’s been a wild ride, maybe, I don’t know the details of all your lives, that sorta thing’s not really any of my business. Anyway, with the mounts update coming in December, I’m guessing that will be the last major update to Conan Exiles for this year. But what’s in store for the next one? I have no idea, but here’s a list of things I’d like to see.
1. More character customization options
The people demand more options! More hairstyles, more makeup options, and more faces to choose from! Ideally I’d love to see a good three or four faces to choose and then further customize for each race. Do you know how sick and tired I am of only having one appropriate-looking face to choose from if I want to play someone who isn’t white? The answer is very sick and tired. That’s why I keep harping on this issue.
Sure, there’s the RP Aesthetics mod for hair and makeup options and it’s really cool (minus the wonky physics on some of the hairstyles it adds), but what about people playing on official servers, or on consoles? They deserve more options too!
Heck, there’s one option that can be added, like, in the time it takes to read this post.
2. Character customization after creation
I feel like this one’s basically a given seeing as how many people have been clamoring for it, but I’m including it here anyway. Again, it’s not a huge issue if you can use mods since I can think of like three off the top of my head that let you change your character’s appearance, but not everyone has that luxury.
3. More early game building options
Y’know, sometimes I don’t want to build with sandstone when I start out. Sometimes I just want to build a rickety shack out of thatch or wood or something so I feel a bit more survivory.
4. More weapons
See this thread for what sort of weapons I’d like to see in the game someday.
5. More playable races
Now, I’m not asking for every race from the lore to be included, especially if that means making every single Hyborian group their own thing, but I do think a few more choices would be neat. Plus I mean, yeah the Yamatai aren’t in Howard’s stories, but they’ve already got their own DLC sooooooo. I know the weebs out there would be happy.
6. More player races appearing as thralls and NPCs
Have you ever seen a Pictish thrall? Or a Khitan, or a Turanian, or a Vendhyan? Yeah, me neither. What gives, Funcom?
7. More Age of Conan armors
Yeah, I know I posted a bunch that I’d like to see in this thread. I’m saying it again here and you can’t stop me!
8. More AoC emotes
I don’t know how many of the emotes in this game are recycled from Age of Conan, but I know it’s more than zero. So here’s some more I’d like to be able to use in Conan Exiles:
I wanted to make gifs of each one but the only video editing software I have is too irritating to use.
I feel like these would also be very popular among people who use Pippi’s thespians to liven up their servers.
9. And finally, the most far-fetched idea…a new map
See this thread for details.
