When you log out with a mount hitched, please make the mount still hitched when you log back in. :)

Add pre-approvals for 1-2 apps.

You can submit the app for a future character and it can pre-approved.
When your current character dies you can instantly use that older approved concept (if you wish) and don't need to wait for another approval process.

If something is "empty" it should go down the keyword hierarchy.

So for e.g. if you have two waterskins in your inv and one becomes empty, it should automatically be a deprioritised keyword. When you next do "drink waterskin" you will then drink from the full waterskin instwead.

Have "look <item> table" return a line break between the msdesc of the different items.

Have "look <item> table" default to looking at the item(s) on the table, instead of looking at the item in your inventory if you're wearing an item with that keyword.

Make where the shopkeeper keyword falls between "list <shopkeeper> <item>" and "buy <item> <shopkeeper>" consistent.

I can think of many emotional emotes that are not a think or feel, for e.g. "you look forward to" "you're excited about" "you're concerned regarding" "you're anticipating" - many of these can be "recast" as thinks or feels but it's just so much easier to maybe have an emote that goes "mebe look forward to" "meis excited about" "meis concerned regarding" etc

I love the think, feel, and remember commands. Love them.

Can I be greedy and suggest an imagine command, as well?

>remember when you couldn't remember.

I think Remember would be interesting to have a semi-permanence. Similar to how Mood works some things will reset it like being reeled in combat or passing out drunk or logging out and you will have to reset it. I think it would be especially good for Half Giants but also for others.

> Change Memory to Tell Lord Oash that Lord Templar Borsail says 'Yes'
> Remember
  You remember Tell Lord Oash that Lord Templar Borsail says 'Yes'
(Some time later after drinking in the Gaj that led to a drunken brawl)
Lord Oash is here.
>Remember
  You remember nothing.
> Say (after bowing) His Shadow Lord Oash.

This was brought up by oggotale in another thread, I think by accident:

Quote
It's very annoying that the mount name comes first when you're on a mount in a room.

Much easier to identify people if the figure came first, then the mount.

The notion that instead this:
Code: [Select]
An inix is here, being ridden by the tall muscular man.
We have something like this:
Code: [Select]
The tall muscular man is here, riding an inix.

Change this game echo for a 'pick' error:

Do you plan to pick it with your fingers?  You'll need some lock picks.

We should be able to include the weather info in our prompt (or atleast some part of it)

Seems intuitive since our character would "immediately" feel the changes in the weather, as opposed to having to check for it.

Would be cool if it worked like:

Weather info in prompt? Reminds me of that mean girls character who can tell when it is currently raining. Weather (direction) is the more useful tool already in game imo.

I'm fine with more prompt options of course.


I have a request I have wanted a long time, an ldesc clearing option which will restore ldesc to default ldesc for whatever you are currently doing.

Isn’t this what “change ldesc none” does? I’ve always used it that way, and the helpfile suggests it works that way.

Example(s):
> change ldesc is here, playing the flute.

> change ldesc none
Reverting to code-generated ldesc.

If you're indoors the weather prompt would give you the default output as "you can't feel the weather from in here"

Pretty sure your char can immediately tell when it's raining outdoors when it's raining and they're outdoors haha.

I'd love for watch to actually be useful. Like if I'm watching a certain directly when moving. I'd like to see the look prompt of osmething is that direction.

This would be a great QOL feature for everybody doing the typical Byn y'all-watch-directions routine.

Code: [Select]
> say (belching ferociously) Sarge, I got eyes south.
> watch south
You follow the war-torn, muscular man and ride east.
Moar Desert [NSEW]
 It's sandy af guys.
Far to the south, you see: A barb-tailed spidermite bustles along here.

Now you can talk, emote, etc as you go rather than spamming "look south" on every move.

Make corpses lifted from the pile decay slightly slower, please. Enterprising people from a certain poor man's district might be able to make some cash then.

I would love to see more regional tamable animals in the game.

Something that looks like an oversight when kanks were removed, You used to be able to find kanks in the red desert, Sunbacks elsewhere in the south and erdlu (ridable ones) In a few other areas.

Now, there is like 1 inix in a certain area then pretty much every other tamable inix and one other animal are all in another area.

I was just looking at class help files and there are several that say "May eventually tame mounts" Hey thats great, oh wait, pretty much are no mounts to tame.

Oh, and a few ox, but they do not count, ox are horrible.

I agree with this 100 percent. Well, there's Aurochs too, but they are ... uhm ... not something you commonly wander across. But yeah, more tamable beasts. And versions of those, too. Rather than just the inix, the black inix and the grey inix and the pale inix and ... actually, there's a beast thematically perfect for the south.

Turn the drov beetle tamable.

Make all PC corpses last a while longer. Stumbling across a corpse is always good for an RP hook. Besides, it's dry as hell, they're going to last a bit.

Analyze showing if an item is craftable and what skill even if you don't have that skill but no more information aside from that for those who lack the skill required to make the item would be nice

Funny way to say mudsex.  ;)

My idea: Much like location worn listing as recently implemented, allow list filtering in stores by weapon type (bludgeoning, slashing etc).

Example: List (merchant) slashing.
