This is Part 3. if you haven't read the previous 2 posts, I HIGHLY urge you to read those first before continuing: Part 1: https://forums.daybreakgames.com/h1...z1-community-improvements-and-requests.20746/ Part 2: https://forums.daybreakgames.com/h1...unity-improvements-and-requests-part-2.20747/ ______________________________________________________________ Hello again, It's been a bit since I last posted any articles, first and foremost, I want to thank everyone who shared their opinion and added to the conversation positively on my previous threads, they were very well received. And I thank the Dev that responded to my 2nd thread in terms of what was going to happen in the near future. This time around I'd like to share my OWN opinion, along with some visuals, since I had already shared what I collected in the community posts pertaining to what was desired and requested for the game. Some of the ideas will be revisited and updated, so any official dev response would be GREATLY appreciated since the main issues have been and are being addressed, the biggest being the crossbow and shotgun ordeal, bug fixes, and communication. I'd like to know the opinion of the IDEAS expressed to be clear and honest. But first, I have to address the most recent updates to the game: -Crossbow Issue Well done Daybreak, I'm very happy that you seriously nerfed the bow, it had to be done. Only concern is the amount of ammo that can be carried, and how common it is in small crates, but aside from that, matches have been a bit more enjoyable now that the damage and range is reduced. THANK YOU -3rd Person Aiming The effort is there, I'm glad you guys did work to put it back in the game, but from my experience, the 3rd Person GLITCH itself was WAY BETTER, in terms accuracy, in camera angle view, and responsiveness. I'm sure its a work in progress, but if you literally just took the initial glitch and made it separate instead of this new version of aiming, it would have been perfect IMO. I'm sure i'm not the only one who feels this way, I've already seen others in the forum express similar statements. Would love to hear from the community on this one in the comments below. -Macho Crate New Content is great! I'm glad to see that we are getting a few things from the content seen in japan, but...Its lacking. I know there was a LOT of backlash from the NZ community about the Maui outfit, and negative statements about the outfit, statements saying that it was offensive. I understand why the devs took it off the crate, but now the package itself is empty, and in the store with the 5000 gold coins pricing. Its crazy. I'm hoping that something else is added to fill up the new crate. Thank you for adding new outfits. OK. On to the visuals and ideas! Proximity Chat Revisited: Additional Options: I know that this conversation is a touchy one, with the "toxic" behavior that took away the feature from players, according to the devs, so since then, I've thought of a few ways to add the feature that can limit any complaints or issues. -Headset Item: Making an actual item that you can find in game to allow chat to happen, only allow a # of players to have it at a time. -Earned Via Rank up: Only grant players who are serious regarding leaderboards, at the Master (or Royalty Rank) the privilege to competitively trash talk other players. I believe seasoned players would have more mature competitive talk in comparison to newbies. -Unlocked "Radio Static Clears" announcement: It could be something unlocked at random during matches, after green and purple drops fall, in the same fashion that notifies us that air drops are incoming, a radio static announcement can let players know that prox chat is activated. Again, this is still a huge selling point, and will make the game extremely entertaining. Please add Prox chat in some form or fashion. Victory Crates and New items + Police Cars We need more options. From the PC side, if you literally brought all the skins from PC and added them to PS4 via store, victory crates as well as creating new ones, A TON of people would be happy and satisfied with that. I found skins of the sedan (police car) and skins that would be awesome to have in the game, so I made a quick collage of them. All in all, the victory crates, items in the marketplace, needs a TOTAL OVERHAUL. No more 4 rotating items for a day, A HUGE store with expensive items, that are DIFFERENT from victory crates and more pack options are needed. I also noticed that with some of the skins we have now, are only a PIECE of a full outfit, I'll elaborate more on a point below for incomplete outfit sets. And literally, I went on this site to find skin examples, the pics I posted on this thread is only a fraction of what the ps4 could have I believe the H1Z1 Showcase site has The majority of skins from PC, there are outfits I've never seen before that are amazing: https://h1z1showcase.com/KOTK/skins.php?part=All Knives, Katanas, Bears (Oh my!) Adding Animals in place of bots Wolves, Sasquatch, Alligators near water, Mountain Lions... who knows. You guys have actually added BEARS and melee weapons in the PC version of the game, why not add them on the console? It can be something released when the new map is unveiled, or added in an arcade mode first. Also, a freaking sword would be really cool to have, I see that in the japan version for the ps4, via KingPlays YT video, there's a knife he found on the ground in their servers. Speaking of weapons, below I have a list of melee options that could be considered in the future. Chainsaw ( in some warehouses) Brass knuckles Baseball bat (sports store or baseball field) Shovel (in back yards) Police Baton (in or around police station) Scythe (In farm areas) Katana Machete Flamethrower Tommy Gun Riot Shield (useful against melee, not full sized, and item has limited hits) Again, some could be considered for the current map and when a new map is released. Having them in specific places to spawn could add another level of strategy as well. Molten Set (Incomplete Outfit sets) From the Tactical Armour, to the fire fighter helmet, to the molten shirts and tactical mask, Again these are all great additions, and also are the missing pieces with outfits that we have on console. There are some costumes that are just missing, like the bandit one, or the Neko chan military tac backpack that's available in Japan, but not in NA. I would love to see the current sets of outfits on console in FULL, compared to PC. Crown Me King! (Battle Royale Rewards) Can we have the ability to have some sort of prestige, crown or something when ranking up on the leaderboards? Or use an emote to gloat after winning a match in first place? I think it would be a good idea to give winners something for working up leaderboard ranks and winning consistently. The king of the kill emote would be great to have too. Binoculars! There have been times where I hear fights in the distance, and I drive looking in that direction, not knowing what to expect. In solos or a game of 5's, reconnaissances is helpful to know what move to make, whether its an ambush, scouting an empty area or locating an enemy sniper, binoculars would be a good addition. Daily/ Weekly Tournaments and Dedicated Teams (Max 8-10 Roster) This could be something that can keep players motivated to play, not just leaderboards, actual tournaments with weekly prizes and exclusive custom gear. What if there were updates every week that made solo and team players look forward to getting better and improving? I mentioned tournaments in the previous thread, but seriously, this is something that separates other BR's right now. Just like the PC version where tournament were held online AND in person, with a huge update and tournaments being the leading feature, H1Z1 on console could come back stronger than ever. To the Dev's I'm glad that you read some of these posts, But I'd really like to hear what you have to say on some of the IDEAS expressed, not only on this thread, but on previous threads and other community posts to make the game better. This post was more along what I'D like to see in the game, as well as the other requests made in the community. So I'd be more than happy to hear feedback on what the possibilities are to make things even better. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Until next time. Appreciate you guys.
