Having a safer, more reliable way to trade, in any form would be nice. Bag’s (similar to stashes in other games) would be cool. Or even just a cool leather bag you can use instead of a chest. Imagine placing one on a table, or next to a bed, or bedroll. Extra emersion is always nice.
When they first created the large chests they were lockable in PVE.
Unfortunately they were default unlocked and accessible by everyone. So people would creep around others bases and if a chest was close to a window or even on the other side of a wall, you could steal all of their items.
Most newer players had no idea they had to lock the chests and there were a few salty posts about it, to the point FC changed it.
For trading I think a spot on both maps where characters can trade mats would be handy. A tradinng post spot in Sepermeru that allows you and another character to trade and when both agree to what is in the two spots, they swap and you access the items.
That would work well, if you happen to be in that spot.
What I purpose would be portable, cheaply made and subject to decay, it would just last longer than a regular loot bag.
A both player interface with both choosing whether to complete the trade, is similar to most MMO’s
And the function would most likely just be added to the player options menu wheel.
I just doubt FunCom would want to implement something like that.
PVP doesn’t really need this, I’m a PVP player, we just take and drop a large chest if we want to trade, We do it all the time. I just thought a cheap quick alternative that all game modes would benefit from would be nice to have.
Yeah, I agree. It’s doable now. But what they’re saying and I think I agree, is that it would be nice if there was a more integrated solution - indeed “something more substantial”.
I have no idea what tho. Maybe a person to person menu option: Person A long presses E on person B they wanna trade with, Select TRADE, Person B get an option Accept / Decline? , etc. If you have played some of the MMO games out there they mostly all have this.
I see what you’re saying.
Something like a MMO style interface, or a Pippi style thespian.
All I was thinking about is an intermediate, a bag that would last longer than a loot bag.
Sure all those things especially the Pippi style thespian / Player store would be very welcome.
A thrall that can facilitate trades is a great idea, and deserves it’s own thread.
But it’s also much more complicated than what I’m suggesting.
A small unlocked container that won’t dust in 5 minutes, even if it’s a one use item.
And it’s more suited to PVE because they don’t have unlocked containers, but could still find use in all game modes.
