Top Sugestions by Players

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Please help me compile a full list!

Most of these suggestions have been said already, but I am going to make a list like Santa - but you can check it twice.

 

*I want to thank the devs for resolving a few issues already, like adding Scav Sam and Colorful Creeper back to the pet box (and other fixes), and for adding a few new GM's. Thank You!

 

1. Stack Splitting - since the fix for stack splitting is a big task, why not have a temporary work around until then? Simply make all non-sellable items now have a merchant value of at least 1 chip. Now all items can be exchanged via merchants and all stacks can be split using this workaround method.

 

2. Hit Boxes - The only good toon in this game is the smallest female toon you can create. But since that isn't explained to new users, they spend weeks leveling a huge male toon, only to discover they wasted their time and must start all over with a new tiny female toon. This is a big problem. I suggest the hit boxes be 1 size fits all OR give more defense to bigger hit boxes.

 - "Or simply make an injector or another way to change gender." - Kishoot

 

3. Auction Chat - at the moment it appears Auction Chat is only regional and that means I can't trade with lower level players that aren't in my current region. It makes no sense at all. But using Global for auction chat gets you scalded by a GM, so... the only thing to do is travel to each region spamming auction chat all over the game using the regional auction chat option. Not good.

 

4. Splash Screens - something as simple as swapping out an image should be done overnight and it's one of the first things that should have been done. Why? because it immediately sends a message to everyone logging in that L.O. is making changes, it can be used to advertise or update players on the game state, and can be used to identify current events - like xmas and halloween. 'A picture says a thousand words' and updates players without forcing them into the forum to find out what is happening. I suggest stamping it with a new L.O. logo.

 

5. Items - Unattune Kit (untradable) in the marketplace is the #1 new item idea that players instantly claim they will buy (at $5 each). Need I say more?

              - L.O. T-Shirt to be redeemed through the marketplace, with a code given to all active accounts. Nothing like free advertising, and a T-Shirt is the most basic of items you can add.

 

6. Social Media - you need a newly updated Facebook (if you don't already) and some reason to get players to go there, like a free item or monthly premium award. (Twitter is currently semi-active, good start)

 

7. Premium Rewards - not only bringing a nice rotation of premium rewards back (for now), but also to someday add NEW items for only premium members who have paid for a subscription. New content is what drives the economy of the top game in todays market, FortNite, which also has the 'Free To Play with Cosmetic Purchases' business model. Once new content slows down, so do sales.

 

8. Chip Limit - raise the 'visible' chip limit to 99y in the players pack and also to 99y in trade windows. At the moment, you must send 9.99y at a time to an alt and count the emails to see how many chips you have (above 10y), and to trade more than 10y right now means you have to pay 10y at a time on trust. I can't think of a reason not to fix this.

 

9. Armored Horses - it would be totally awesome to have the old Wasteland Runner again, or the Portland Runner Armor. I believe those old horses could be painted as well. I noticed that the Stable Manager has a paint option, yet no stable items can currently be painted.

 

_______________________________

Below are some requests which may be resolved with a new game engine, or may take some extra work beyond what is possible anytime soon:

_______________________________

 

10. Anti-Cheat System - this is one of the more code intensive fixes that I believe will be resolved within the newly developed game engine (when it arrives)

 

11. Missions - a lot of them have unbalanced rewards or are entirely broken

 

12. Weapon and Armor Choices - most weapons and armor are useless once you reach level 55 except the new AP weapons and GT Armor. It is recommended that G.O.R.E. be balanced with AP to add more variety, along with adding more choices. Inluding choices for Heavy Weapons, Automatic Rifles/Pistols, Crossbow, and other builds that were left behind.

 

13. Factions - have lost their luster and are almost meaningless at this point. That said, when there were hundreds or even thousands of players, I think the experience was a bit more on par with what people expected.

 

14. In-game notice/info board for player run events - this could be a simple sign with a generic icon to be clicked by players within the game. It could automatically open up the events sub-forum when clicked (like how the poker chip in the menu can open up the marketplace web page), where event listings can be monitored and not abused. The link may never have to be updated unless the events sub-forum page is moved.

 

15. Steam Trading Cards - as suggested in this posting:

 

16. New Vehicle - a truck. There are already truck models in the game. Just add a Vandal vehicle script, and BAM! a truck is made. A few simple paint jobs and decals, and you have several new items.

 

17. Trinket Models In-World - this idea is actually neat. Make an attachable area on the player model to display the currently equipped trinket with an in-world model. I think this will be far off because it will actually require a professional 3D modeler to use the images from the icon and build it into a low polygon, low texture, displayable item. And possibly some sort of physics to dangle around while you move. But I still love the idea.

As suggested from this posting:

_______________________________

Other Ideas:

_______________________________

18. Dome Upgrade - Wouldn't it be cool if the Dome was actually in-world, maybe in Epsilon (where not much is going on), and other players could spectate? It would have to be set up as instances to work (like many team missions that currently exist). Then, players could learn by watching, and even pay a small chip admission to attend. I would be in the stands "Booo! Your doing it wrong!" =P

 - And speaking of Dome, I think the old Dev/GM names on the level 10 bosses should be swapped out with current names, that is, unless it's more appropriate to shoot the old devs in the face to take out those aggressions (in the game of course).

 - "Add bots in "blood Sports" in all its levels, although in 2011 it was always active in all its levels, now nobody plays. This would add more gameplay to the game, being the bots not very difficult to kill could train the new players." - Aura Croft

 

19. Daily Rewards - a player in-game suggested that we be given a reward for logging in with activity each day. This could be calculated by hours of play (like steam card drops) or just simply by logging in after 24 hours has passed again. The reward could be in the form of Reward Points to be redeemed in the marketplace, which would promote frequent player logins and drive more traffic to the marketplace. 

 

20. Combined Loot Window - a player suggested that loot from multiple enemy kills should be combined into 1 window to make looting easier. Other games, such as 'Lord of the Rings Online', do this well. And while the idea sounds great, it could prove to be challenging in multiplayer where teams and raids share the kills. Maybe someone has ideas that could make this possible. I am also concerned about whether or not L.O. would want to do this, because they need 'boost' items, like harvest boosters, to generate funds in a FTP game. But it's stil worth discusing further.

 

21. Faction leader - "... this person could be like a moderator of the chat 'Faction' and could regulate the asset in each faction (being able to throw from the faction to possible cheaters or very toxic people), making the game more correct, protected and addictive, given the belonging to each faction, making this the most important value and a social role." - Aura Croft

- " simply add raids for factions which have two difficulties. One easy as fuck, the other with stronger NPCs where players might need to focus specific NPCs or crossheal properly to survive. This way you add a repeatable method to earn faction, besides simply killing NPCs, still earn faction/xp but can add a proper payout as well. Then of course it also adds at least something to group play besides Citadel." - Reaps989

 

22. Blood Sports -  "Remove Assault, Remove Deathmatch, Remove Survival. Add team deathmatch, then simply lower requirements to start a match to 4 players rather than 5. This will stop team-stacking." - Reaps989

 

23. Premium Prices - lower the cost of premium again by almost half until the game is redeveloped.

 

24. Customizable Farms - allow paint kits to be used on the player built farms, so the interior and/or exterior can be painted. Also allow the scarecrow to be customized, and possibly the furniture textures.

 

25. Transit System - I love the idea of waiting for the buss, the paying some chips to ride it to another town. The whole team can ride together and pick seats on the buss. OR a train that circles the wastelands - and if you are willing to take some damage you can jump off of the moving train. AND a crumbled monorail system already exists - you could do town events to restore it and only the controlling faction can ride the monorail thru pvp areas.

Unattune kit: Make it non-tradeable too.

Though they have been somewhat actively engaged in Twitter business.

Obviously there are plenty of other issues and bugs with missions and pvp, but these are just the ideas that are most important to me at the moment, and a ton of players in the Global chat.

*I left out a lot of the bigger code intensive requests because most of those issues should be resolved in the new game engine.

UPDATED with Guiny additions - more ideas please

Your point are good, but you missed the most important ones:

 

1- Game need Anticheat ( its main reason players left to play, as i know)

2- Game need be rebuild , being more faction oriented ( as original intention game is designed)

3- Game need quit or rebuild some bad things done ( ap inyector, life harversters, free dyes.... really game changed and its not a " challenge" actually)

4- Some rewards are incompleted or are simply bad ( not fun make a level 25 mision and aget a reward of level 5 weapon or just useless number of chips, is really frustating for new players)

5- weapons, equip at level 55 is simple. the best weapons/ equip is so limited, making a choice of 3 armor or  3 weapon when game have 100 items or more in that level than is useless. (seriusly game is capable to put similar stats in all equip  same level? )

6 in coincidence with your put 6, i will say about best form of promoting a game is the " reviews" or experience others players have. In this part game is going so bad, since old company have " the biggest one  review in almost all games had".

Steam is a platform where is a big activity of players and exist another steam platform are not called steam where game can be launched. said this i not see so much " movement in steam forum" or any other same place. Twitter is the biggest one, but is more dificult to move people to play.

From my point of view, the most easy way to make a " big population" is make an anouncement in all platform but " ofering something new, something fresh, something where player is necesary to make a new start project and where the player is the center of all".

Ofering more of the same, will make game being more of the same, so being a nobody playing game

An ingame notice/info board for player run events would be a huge addition imo, but that's more of a QoL than a necessity. Bringing premium rewards back for subs would be a good one too

I like the events information board idea. I'm just curious if players would use the board to make profane statements when it's not being used for real events.

Could be something simple like a link button (like $ button on minimap) to take you to event subforum posts. Would mean that it's already moderated by LO, a text box of sorts ingame would have to be watched by GMs if implemented.

Or just allow males to scale down in size to equal that of a female character, then add "one time" quest item (kinda like the faction reset in flagstaff) and cash shop item which will change a character's current "scaling" to that very same minimum.

Any boosts can be quickly abused, even if you consider the idea "Well my male is 50% bigger", does that mean 50% more health or defenses in general would fair? Even if it was 25%, people would roll male simply because at no point will being a small female give you "that" much of an advantage.

Then consider client/server-side issues causing heavier warp between players, it's simply not a solid idea to add boosts as if everything is consistent.

Or simply make an injector or another way to change gender.

Well ya there's that option as well, but you'd still need it to change your character's "scale" of height. Even then, it should be possible for male/female characters to simply be cosmetic rather than anything involving game mechanics.

if the game is re-launched, why does not the height aspect remain the same for everyone? although in fallout 76 as in other morpgs only the thin / athletic / fat weight is modified.

 

I want to add a couple of other suggestions:

1- Add bots in "blood Sports" in all its levels, although in 2011 it was always active in all its levels, now nobody plays. This would add more gameplay to the game, being the bots not very difficult to kill could train the new players.

 

2- Faction leader: This is an idea that I have said several times, although this person could be like a moderator of the chat " Faction "and could regulate the asset in each faction (being able to throw from the faction to possible cheaters or very toxic people), making the game more correct, protected and addictive, given the belonging to each faction, making this the most important value and a social role

Bloodsports : Remove Assault, Remove Deathmatch, Remove Survival. Add team deathmatch, then simply lower requirements to start a match to 4 players rather than 5. This will stop team-stacking.

As for promoting training for players... simply add raids for factions which have two difficulties. One easy as fuck, the other with stronger NPCs where players might need to focus specific NPCs or crossheal properly to survive.

This way you add a repeatable method to earn faction, besides simply killing NPCs, still earn faction/xp but can add a proper payout as well. Then of course it also adds at least something to group play besides Citadel.
