This video brings to light the fact that FC may be planning to charge us for new maps. That’s a direct breaking of their promise not to do so. And it’s utterly unnecessary.
As someone who has supported this game from its earliest announcement and started one of the larger roleplaying communities for it ( https://conanexilesrp.enjin.com ) and who has defended this game to the death… I am absolutely NOT okay with Funcom going back on their word and making maps paid DLC. Just, no. Maps are basic gameplay. Period. I buy every single DLC that comes out. I gift several DLCs every time a new one comes out. I have loved and supported their current DLC model. And I absolutely agree that different types of DLC from the current model will prove wildly popular. Yes, HAIR for the love of Crom! More and better tattoos (because frankly most of the current ones are pretty bad), expanded skin tones, expanded eye colors, expanded hair colors. Oh and here’s a crazy idea… body sliders! The IQoL mod does it and, within a pretty good range, it does NOT break or clip armors. So, enough with the static clone bodies! CULTURAL CLOTHING. Make companion clothing DLCs to the currently existing DLCs. Be sure to add jewelry. A clothing mod based on the classic Conan artwork by Frank Frazetta or even the various comics would also be wildly successful. And also agreed on the placeables! A household goods DLC with alternate stoves and fireplaces along with all the sorts of things like cups and plates etc… A “treasure hunters” pack with placeables like piles of gold and jewels, golden skulls and statues and treasure chests (including some that store inventory!). Alternate cultural looks for all the crafting benches. Actual paintings using the amazing artwork that has already been done for this game and not just a screenshot of someone’s build that doesn’t look like a painting at all. Additional mounts like the elephants and rhinos. More cultural tack for the mounts. NEW base game building pieces like pillars and walls with more window options and alternate doors just to change things up. Placeable decorative pets! Please give us some actual DOGS FC! They could EASILY blend a bit of each of these into new cultural DLCs, giving them wider appeal. Oh and yes, the vines you mentioned! In different types! A garden and farming DLC would be amazing and also hugely popular! With and expanded planter system and lots of decorative plants like trees and flowers! The ability to create beautiful pools, both in building and natural looks. And I could EASILY go on! So it does seem very obvious that there’s still a ton of money to be made from DLCs WITHOUT breaking their promise to not sell us new maps. And honestly, if they do this, it’s very likely a deal breaker for me and I will have to seriously consider leaving the game and withdrawing my support and shutting down my site.
