That's not what this thread is about, and it's also not what this community is about.

    It frustrates me to see so much negativity in the forums, and unfortunately, the vast majority of players who are satisfied with the direction of this game tend to be the silent ones.

    I hope that we all can let the Devs make the final decisions on what ideas they filter; for this topic, and all topics/updates to come. So far they've been trusted with creating an in game experience that you and I keep coming back to. Let's try and be more positive with our feedback, and less destructive. We're all on the same team here!
    Although the purpose of the thread is to talk about what people want to see, I'm sure the devs appreciate all possible feedback, whether positive or negative. The devs are worried about making stuff p2w, so talk about what might be is useful.

    Plus, seeing other people's perspective on the issue can help with balance. For example, Niph's original suggestion was a "Trash disposal assistant", which could mean a few things. Maybe it's a pet that just deletes items you drop, or maybe it's something that buries corpses, or maybe it vendors items you drop and gives you money. Golliathe's concern is that it will become something like Black Desert Online's pets, which are extremely useful auto-looters. I don't believe Niph was suggesting that, but this feedback does tell the devs that if they ever add "Assistants" that they should avoid making them as useful as Black Desert Online's. This comment at the very least helps the devs see possible differences between a nice convenience feature and a clear in-game advantage, even if Niph wasn't talking about the latter.

    Positive feedback is nice, but negative feedback is necessary too. Although this thread is about adding things to the store, the devs are trying to be careful not to add anything that would upset players too. I know the devs of Project Gorgon aren't greedy, but there are many game developers who completely ignore complaints in regards to adding micro-transactions to their games in order to appeal to the players who are A-OK with paying for p2w bonuses because those are the people who will pay the most. It's a very sensitive topic so it's understandable that some people (Like me!) would want to say something about it, because micro-transactions have ruined games in the past.

    As long as everyone is nice, feedback is constructive and there are no personal attacks, then we're good.

    Also on a somewhat related note, I think Niph's idea of more transfer slot space is good, although Golliathe is correct that it would be more storage space as well. I don't think a few transfer slots are a big deal, but Niph's suggestion was probably more about making it easier to transfer items between characters, not getting more storage slots. Maybe since there's a mail service being implemented, subscription users could send larger packages with many items in them? It could be used to transfer items between alts much faster that way if you can send 10+ items at once.

    Additionally, while more character slots would be useful, it's a bit unavoidable due to the fact that you can buy the game again and then make new characters on another account. Unless if the devs start asking for your social security number or ban accounts from using the same IP then this is always a valid option. Adding more character slots is fine to make it easier for everyone to get access to more characters, rather than only people who want to bother making multiple accounts and switching between them. Plus, having more characters doesn't necessarily mean you get more money in game as you still need to put in extra work to profit more. You might be able to use an easier method (Ex. Using the same work order multiple times) but you're still crafting more items, leveling up the industry of multiple characters, etc.

    Since my ideas are discussed, let me elaborate:


    • Extra character slots. You can obtain the same result buying another account. I don't know of any benefit given to characters on the same account, so until the game has some, and alts get a bonus from mains somehow, it seems very reasonable to me.
    • Extra account-wide transfer chest slots. It didn't occur to me that the additional slots would be such a deal, but in that case you can require to have all other storage slots in the same zone unlocked. This will get you from 100 to 101, yay!
    • Offline transportation, similar to hangouts: after N minutes offline, your character is moved to one of several possible destinations at the next log in. If N is 24 hours, you save a few minutes of play time every day. But, wait, you could have just played it.
    • Your own personal kobold attendant that collects the trash you dropped on the ground behind you and disposes of it. Actually, it didn't occur to me this could be anything else than a way to destroy on the spot. Really.

    It sounds kind of cute.

    Maybe there could be cosmetic pets which are just critters that follow you around, and you can feed them items which levels up your bond between you and your pet, which makes your pet do more actions such as animations or speech. Just be careful not to accidentally feed them something you actually want.

    Love the idea of the attendant. If having it do all the choices like skinning then autopsy then bury would tip the scales too much, then perhaps only one of the options could be selected. That way you would still have to interact personally to get it all done but you could still make a run on one skill/priority at a time. Also, for the VIP suggestions, I think having the ability to invite to guild or add friend even if they aren't nearby would be both super convenient and wouldn't be too advantageous. This is fun. Can't wait to see what actually comes from this. And I want to echo what someone said earlier. We are on the same team. We have to be. It's PVE lol.

    In my opinion paid shop items should be minor conveniences and cosmetics only. I have no issue with someone forking over 20$ a month for 20 extra inventory slots (how about 5 per character). I have no issue with a small xp bonus on combat skills either. There really have to be questions answered though.... I mean what if you could just buy a set of black dye for 25$?

    I take grave issue with any bonus that helps you make more money/hour. Unfortunately what he thought was a minor convenience is actually something of a massive money multiplier. I think I pretty readily explained why some of what he wanted was probably a bad idea or the dangers around certain aspects of his ideas.

    I really hope you don't think my previous post was negative. I am of the opinion that when someone asks what do you want to see it also opens the door for what you don't want to see.

    As for the mule issue : while you can currently have a mule this will eventually be outlawed (because a one time 40$ fee is cheaper than an indefinite rolling 5-10$ monthly fee).

    I don't have an issue with the bury pet. But since no one had mentioned black desert and your idea skirted a very nasty pay to win mechanic I wanted to discuss it.

    Not sure if this is good or not (it would be for a perk of VIP), but one thing I can think of that I would like to see would be.

    NPC drop you a message/note when they are ready for a hang out. It should be in character for the NPC, Elves should be sending you notes along the lines of "Why don't you come up and see me sometime?"

    Some good conversation here!

    I would totally rock a PG t-shirt, hoodie or hat.

    I don't really foresee the Shop as being too heavy on micro-transactions. They want to keep it fairly simple - A few package deals to choose from, maybe a few single-line items like order a custom title or the custom gravestone thing, maybe some simple services like guild rename and such. T-shirts and items of that nature are possible but we'll have to look into costs and logistics for it first.

    The VIP tokens for the VIP subscription option will also be sold there as well. To set expectations for that, The VIP option is very likely not going to come into play until right before release.

    I gotta admit I'm surprised I have not seen more chatter about custom titles on this thread so far. So I guess I'll poke your brains about it. How do you feel about that? Non-bestowable vs. bestowable?

    And finally to clarify on one point:

    Extra accounts will not be "outlawed", you just won't be able to log them all in at the same time. You can own as many accounts as you wish, but you will only be able to have one logged in at a time. Also to be clear, that will not happen until there is some form of item mail in place.

    Custom titles are totally cool, no complaints there! I thought these were planned to be brought back since they're in the game already. I think making them bestowable makes them more fun. I know some people use that to their advantage to get items or money but if someone wants to fork over 100 cheese to get a silly title then who are we to stop them?

    While this is brought up, I wanted to ask because this is kind of important. Currently the VIP token in game can be traded, which is fine and dandy since it's only available through in-game events and such. When you can purchase VIP, are these tokens planned to be tradable so players can purchase them with real money and then trade them to players for in game currency? This is kind of an awkward gray area on whether this is unfair or not, but I would like to know if it's planned or not.

    Also just another random idea, but I would love to see the ability to customize our equipment some more like the name/icon/etc. I know you can inscribe items and such, but I always found it kinda silly that you're stuck with a name like "Pig milker's breastplate of your mother's blue balls" or something. It's not really a huge selling point or anything, so maybe it can just be a bonus attached to a VIP subscription?
