We all talk about game improvements we'd like to see, new items, clothes, twists mechanics etc

So I was wondering if Ben came to you and said "OK I will implement ONE thing; ONE thing that you think will improve yours (and others if you like) gaming experience on Sleuth right now."

What would it be?

[I'll make the proviso that it has to be about the 'game' and can't be about 'anyone' lol :p]

Mine is simple.

If I could have it right now, I'd ask for a better PM/Message system.

This has nothing to do with the fact I have never done a treasure hunt and wouldn't get a stat :D ;)

*But* as treasure hunts are team events it's fairly irrelevant who finished it. It'd be a fairly distorted stat eg. I've known solo agents to jump into an Agency to finish a hunt coz they have safe cracking. So they have a stat yet aren't in an Agency, and did the barest minimum possible to help?

I think it defeats the purpose of the team work aspect of Treasure Hunts.

OK, Jas and SS I do agree, how about putting it on the bio page much like cases quit where only the detective themselves can see it. I'm just curious as to how many I finished with being in so many different agencies. I wont even try to list the agencies I've been in, some are still active, some have been dissolved, I just thought it would be interesting to see

I agree SS, it definately does defeat the purpose of Teamwork!

I can see why some people might want to keep track of which trophies they've won for their agencies, but at the same time, we might as well make a list for who's contributed to treasure hunts period, cause you can't reach the finish line without having contributors along the way. And making a list of all the people who've contributed to all the hunts seems a bit of a nightmare of logistics to me, programming wise. Might as well do it in-agency, so to speak. :-/

On the subject of wasted skill points (of which I don't have any yet :) )

How about a "skill" that you could buy several times.

50 points - Shadys blackmail material. - Halves the price dear old Shady demands when you pay him to take away your false acussations.

Every 50 skill points... would make him a little bit more palatable. Since his prices keep going up but your income no longer does.

I like that idea, Dave. I am up to over $10,000 in trying to pay stupid over there at the bar to get rid of my false accusations. I am up to two, but I will pay it someday. Somehow.

For you level of xp, if your at over 10,000 you should have enough money to pay shady off already. I'd pay him because your running the HUGE risk of getting retired!!!

OK, new idea I just thought of. There are many of us if not all who have gotten an FA because we just weren't paying attention to what we were doing while sleuthing. Be it talking on the phone, watching TV, chatting on an Instant Messenger, etc.

How about that when you click on the accuse this person link, instead of getting another link with are you sure you want to accuse this person, it's one of the pop up windows that we get when quitting a case or purchasing a new skill. Might help out some of those that get distracted, I know it can happen to even the most experienced detective but at list it would be something different than a link that we are so used to seeing.

Just a thought for discussion.

Opinions?

It's a good thought, Ctown. My only issue is that once the novelty wears off, we'll get used to it and click buttons/links/choices just as brain-deadedly as some of us do now.

No, brain-deadedly is not really a word. Yes, I said it anyway. :-P

I lke the idea of a new skill - something for really advanced players that you can only get if you have all other skills for example - or a very expensive one.

Also, again for advanced players, a step up from AVs - say hunting a serial killer to include Cairo and maybe a maze (hell, why not?). With the reward being some (super) special items. It would give people another level to aim for - especially as there is a growing number of big scorers.
