Just wanted to add my own suggestions to the list of existing ones. To the best of my knowledge, some of these are new and have not been suggested yet, however many have also been requested numerous times in the past. Therefore, I wish lend them my voice and support. I am not certain how feisable some of these are on a technical level; just putting them out there and gauging the consensus. They are:
1. New Combat Attacks:
(Arguably the most boring or divisive one) Charged attack-I feel it would nice to be able to hold down the heavy attack button for 1-2 sec for a slightly delayed stronger attack. Downwards thrust-as the name suggests, a downwards strike on a grounded opponent. Jump attack-as simple as it sounds, and useful for attacking opponents above you or those trying climb escape. Run in attack-when at full sprint, a quick lunge or opener attack.
I am aware that crossbows were previously in the game during early access, but were removed. I for one would REALLY like to see crossbows return in some form or capacity. It could have a higher damage level than longbows, but a much slower fire rate as a trade off!? Devs…is there any chance of them making a return, and if not may we ask why?
3. Salvage Table:
A new potential crafting table. In some areas and biomes, I quite often happen upon high quality weapons, shields and tools (eg-hardened steel daggers and shields, ancient warhammers, steel swords). There are no in game vendors, and my thralls are already armed to the teeth. It seems such a shame to discard such high quality weaponry! My suggetion is that this bench would break it down (essentially scrap it) for raw materials. Eg- an iron war axe could return 2 iron bars and 1 leather, etc.
4. Armour Display Racks/Manequinns:
A big ‘PLEASE…’ accompanies this one. Something in a similar vein as the skyrim ones, but with a CE style. I have seen this one requested numerous times over, and I genuinely dont understand the reluctance or hesitancy to add this feature. Unless it would be too difficult on a technical level…!? I would not know. Devs either way, please give us a definate yes or no on this one; it has been requested so many times!
5. Double Doors & Larger Windows:
Another one I have seen requested frequently; especially the double doors. The windows could still be 1 tile wide too, just larger.
6. More Decorations/Furnishings:
This one has also come up quite often on the forums. Especially after the last two DLCs. I have even seen a number of decorations at enemy camps, which Im sure players would love to learn recipes for and have at their own bases! For example, impaled/crucified skeletons found in the deep desert where the player starts, skull tree decorations at dafari camps, butchers meat racks at black hand camps, straw practice dummies in highlands camps, blacksmiths anvils. There are dozens of background furnishings which Im sure many players would love to have access to, but current can not. A step further…!? Imp, serpentman, were-hyena and frost giant head trophies please.
7. A Smaller Vault:
One which would fit more comfortably inside a modest sized home, but has a smaller capacity than the existing one. Perhaps 1×1×1 foundation size or thereabouts.
8. Monty Python Themed Armours:
What can I say, Im a fan! I sincerley doubt that this would ever come to pass though, and I am only half serious.
9. Radium Gem as Portable Lighting:
It would be highly beneficial if we could forge a helmet or crown (similar to the Atlantean Crown) with a radium gem mounted into it (or on the bracelet) to serve as a source of light in the dark. This would make life sooo much easier when dragging a captured thrall back to ones base at night time. You wouldnt believe the number of times I have literally ran straight of a cliff, and plummeted to my ultimate demise! This would leave both hands free.
10. Obelisks are Marked on the Map after Discovery:
Yes I know I could simply add my own marker. However, I feel that obelisks are important points of reference, and should have there location marked on the map like any point of interest post discovery.
11. More Devious Uses for Dung:
Warfare isnt just physical, its psychological too. It would be great to be able to use a dung barrage as trebuchet ammo, or even dung orbs. Nicole mentioned this too. If you are reading this, back us up on this one
12. More Brutality:
Thralls chained to boulders, in cages, you name it. We are conquerers in a savage world after all! The ability to have skull trees and impaled skeletons at home would really improve the atmosphere around the house.
13. Rival NPC Faction Raids:
Have the factions (eg relic hunters, dogs of the desert, etc) randomly attack each others camps here and there. Simply watching say a few black hand attacking a dafari camp randomly would be cool to behold and fuel a more engaging environment.
14. At this stage my final, and by far most passionate suggestion. This will be making an appearance in its own thread really soon…
In the meantime, let me know what you all think.
