Suggestion Box

Like is says: a Suggestion Box.

[be polite, I meant GAME suggestions!]

That's not to say we haven't got lots of ideas for things in the pipelines, but I'm sure there are lots of players out there who have lots of ideas about how to make the game a better / more interesting one, and we're always interested to hear what those ideas are.

Especially if they're explained clearly and constructively. :)

Who knows maybe you'll see an idea of yours up in lights :)

Yup Jayne, then players would feel the benefit of doing treasure hunts more often. hehe, actually watch points does feel similar to agency bonus points offered by different agency headquarter in Noir. ^_^

I suggest a "wait until arrives" or "Wait until leaves" button for those times when you have to wait to enter someones home.

could we have the items that are the same registering in the slot? this way less inventory spaces would be used by items that are the same. The quantity would would increase each time you got one

@ Frank - I understand you point, but we have different places set up for people to go wait 4hours etc at a time. But we have toyed with some kind of 'stakeout' option. Thanks for reminding me.

@ JChen definitely find different range / type of TH rewards implemented around the same time when Ben gets round to the editable agencies.

hadn't really finished then, but Agency 'perks' could be an option, withough skewing the game to much... other games do it. Say you get 'X' FAME, you get Level 1 Fame = +2\% XP per case for members, and Level 2 Fame might be an item of equipment, Level 3 might be 5\% extra cash per case for each member. etc I'm just thinking aloud.

Sorry for double-post.

It came to my attention about the issues of blocking hunts. How does agencies block hunts? Well, blocking hunts can happen in 2 ways as follows:

1) When an agency mark and record down other agencies' time of hunting and holding the hunt on the last step and wait until the next hunt schedule.

2) When an agency really couldn't get the particular favor to proceed the hunt.

That's what happen when only one agency is trying to prevent another agency to do hunting, which is not that serious, as simple as organizing different time of hunting.

But what if more than one agencies is trying to prevent this particular agency to get hunts, is this acceptable? Even if its acceptable, how far would it be acceptable?

As I've suggested before, to actually promote more agencies to participate in hunts:

1) Do not limit them with the winning rewards.
2) Each faction' hunts should last for 3 days or more, allowing more agencies to participate in the same hunt even though another agency has finished it.
3) Do not display the percentage done by agencies in the community page, only show the agency name.

So, hunts on the community board should show something like:

Active Treasure Hunts

Participating Agencies: Agency A (On going), Agency B (Completed), ..., so on
Treasure's Name: The Lost Tiara of Al Capone
Faction: Dies Arcanum Brotherhood
Reward: $11500 & 575 Fame
Started: 2011-04-18 06:00:01
Completed: 2011-04-21 23:59:59

First place based on TH size gets more Challenge Points and so on, but most important is that even after an agency completed the hunt first, the rest of the participating agencies still can work their way to finish the hunt and get lesser reward. This is to ensure that no blocking hunts will happen. Even if it does, each agencies will have 3 - 5 days depending on the TH size to complete the TH before considered total lost (no reward given) and before new hunts for the factions are generated.

The fact is:
1) To prevent agencies from blocking hunts intentionally or unintentionally.
2) To make sur

opps...

2) To make sure smaller agencies can have equal chances to do and to complete hunts.
