Hi there, I have few ideas to make DS Together a more fun experience, since there will be more players playing. Philosophy: As with all survival and every work position in the world - specialization is the key to success. The team is stronger, if each player is specialized in something which gives him and the team benefits in the end. Where I aim - it would be great, if players had a set of skills they could explore and get better at. I am not saying it should look like some old RPG stuff, loaded with clutter of useless stuff. Just some basics. Skills: - hunting/fighting skills - crafting skills - cooking skills - harvesting skills Mechanic: - levels of each skills - basic, intermediate, expert - all skills would be increased by a small amount when the character would be doing the thing (either fighting, crafting, cooking meals or cutting trees or rocks down) - after some time (up to developers to decide, but should be long, so it is not easy), a player would become an expert and would have some benefits - benefits could be for example: - 10/20/30 % increased damage and armor for basic, intermediate and expert (hunting/fighting) - 10/20/30 % less resources needed for crafting - 10/20/30 % less resources or time of cooking needed - 10/20/30 % less time to cut down or pick up anything This way players would have another goal and could specify their place in the team of survivors. It is always like that - when few people are surviving, not everyone is making the fire , because they wouldn't last long that way. Also, this could be even more fun to see some combination of characters and roles they would play in the game. For example Woodie would be the best to use and get some harvesting skills. And Wigfried would be best for hunting/fighting. What do you think? Would you like some taint of roles in the survival wilderness? Any feedback appreciated. P.S.: Another idea, which doesn't concern skills - it would be great to have bow and arrow. Even the oldest tribes had bows and arrows. It is just that simple that this weapon is essential in surviving or killing something from a distance.
