Basic magic and/or stealth mechanics.

-28
I mostly wanted to post this to see what people might think about these things.

Basic Magic: Keep in mind, 'basic' (although I would love to see advanced magic as well but), I was thinking something small like being able to cast a few spells in a real time day, something like creating light almost like a flare for battle (defense or offense). Possibly something as simple as growing crops quicker (nature magic). Perhaps a spell to charm animals. Or maybe even enchant weapons/armor (outside of potions/alchemy). I suppose the magic school could be apart of alchemy as they tend to go hand in hand.

Basic stealth: Once again, I personally don't want a 'broken' feature like full stealth where you are sowing your crops and suddenly a blade protrudes out from under your rib cage from an assassin out of thin air. I'm thinking more like noise reducing mechanics (soft steps), maybe some camoflauge clothing and or base building netting. Maybe even some kind of slight human tracking (a type of realistic tracking that could only be found with fresh to give an edge to a light armored/weaponed assassin). Also, even though this next bit is a bit off topic, I would love to have one of my buddies ridding a horse pulling a cart wielding no weapon and wearing only a monk type outfit, the cart looks to be carrying goods in large supply, suddenly bandits leap out to attack and loot the unsuspecting peddler when they are met with defenders out from hiding within the cart!

Hopefully, I have at the very least given those who care about LiF:YO and the pending MMO some good for thought to improve the game we love, thank you.

    No Magic!!! I love this game because of it's authenticity.
    Keep away the magic. No one needs it. ;-)

    No.
    Go back to Skyrim if you want magic.

    I agree with making two separate threads. A lot of people are 100% against adding magic to the game, so anything that has it involved gets voted down immediately, even if there are other good ideas in it.

    As for my opinion, LiF is meant to be a realistic sandbox game and the devs have stated that magic will never be added to it iirc. I know where you're coming from with suggesting it, I'm a fantasy author and I normally love magic, but the devs want LiF to be realistic, which means no magic. And I personally like that. It's nice to see a game that doesn't have magic for a change, even if I normally like it. Not every game needs magic to be good- if magic doesn't fit in a game, it should never be forced in.

    And the stealth ideas would be great to add, personally, as long as they're not game-breaking. (Nothing quite like the Skyrim "Dancing on the table in sneak mode and somehow the guards are running around the table unable to see me" game-breaking, I don't want to see that in this game. XD)

    I don't like the incorperation of Magic, it's sopost to be a realistic sandbox. Most Sandbox games I feel are ruined by magic and take away the immersion,

    Stealth: I think they will be adding the lighter foot steps and such. The camo netting, I really don't see the point, no one would have bothered to make them as they were pointless. You can stay hidden, but there are no guns. You'll have to come out at some point.

    Nobody says anything about the stealth ideas here ^^

    @ Dyce101
    I would recommend you to make two seperate threads if you have 2 different ideas, so at least one of them is voted for ;-)

    This is the only thing that the instagram account hack can work for the instagram password for the any account.

    Old is consistently gold and this blog supports it. We love to play old rounds of the school run escape as well as we can also pursue darwinessays to manage our school tasks easily. I'm a major devotee of this blog for sharing the heart contacting content and data with us.

    Well, there is already some basic magic in the game.. or how else would you describe the teleport home ability? ;-)
    If you would not call it magic but religious blessings performed by priests you might get more votes. Would be interesting if religion had more power in the game. Something like making crops grow a bit faster or getting a quality bonus when producing something. But definatelly no attack spells or stuff like that!

    I like the stealth ideas, especially the 'trojan horse' idea... would be great to be able to ambush ambushers ^^
