List of Popular Suggestions
So I've played about 700 hours of this game over the course of about 4 months, and have seen a lot of people suggest/complain/discuss/debate a lot of different ideas. I thought I'd make a thread to compile what I believe to be the most popular (and by extention, perhaps needed) features, changes or additions that Holdfast may benefit from.
Please note, not all of the following reflect my personal opinion on the game - they're just what I believe to be the most asked for additions or removals.
Please reply to the thread if you think anything should be added or removed from this list.
I plan to keep it updated.
Additionally, if you've seen any Official Responses to any of the following - let me know and I'll add it!
+Points for Healing (Surgeons)
Simple suggestion I've seen a lot. Surgeons should get a set of amount of points for healing; whether per second or per soldier healed to full health.
A Nerf to Riflemen
Yes. I'm aware that they were reduced from 10 to 6, but I still see a lot of complaining about them.AGS' Response
: "We'll be increasing the time it takes to reload a rifle to balance the class out. Both teams both equally have the same number of rifleman slots available so neither is put at a disadvantage."Source: Steam Discussion
Map Voting or Map Skipping
I've seen a general consensus that certain maps are just not as popular as others. A vote to skip system may be welcome.
Change Reticule Colour
An option to change the reticule to a colour of your choice (mainly for Arctic maps).Source: Confirmed by Refleax. (Discord Discussion)
Independent Musician Volumes
Surprisingly, I see a lot of people wanting to individually edit the volumes of Fifers, Drummers and Pipers.
Increase size of Compass Bearings
The N, W, S, E and everything in between is seemingly too small on the minimap.Source: Confirmed by Refleax. (Discord Discussion)
Not sure what it is; whether reach, hitbox, registration or the HP buff to flags - but a lot of people complain about their melee.
The ability to customize the face of your character; regardless of what class you're playing. Face, facial hair, hair, etc.
An option to join the queue to a full server, instead of staring at the 150/150 for it to go down to 149.
Grappling Hooks for Naval
Allow ships to grapple onto other ships in Naval Battlefield.
Class Limits in Private Servers
The ability to change the amount of soldiers that can spawn as each individual class.AGS' Response
: "We will have functionality that will enable server hosts to change class limits to their choosing."Source: Discord Post
Progression System (+Level UP)
A system of basic level progression (with experience) to unlock cosmetic benefits for your character, faction, weapon or Regiment.
