So you basically want a MMORPG properties. A valid request i think. Considering i know Oblivion, mass effect1&2 and DA1&2. Inventory management is always overlooked on any singleplayer RPG so are talents biggrin.gif

Btw, you basically killed my curiosity on Skyrim biggrin.gif I'm done with nice looking games after Witcher 2 The "Not making sense" game biggrin.gif It seems they don't deserve the HDD space they waste gameplay-wise.

Wanted to point out, in case you were anaware, you can actually rename items at the time of enchantment. I assume you could add '!!!' to the start of the name and it would pop up. No way to rename it after that if you forget. Or anything else for that matter.
Having a whole list of potions with poisons both above and below potions is beyond annoying. Some kind of sort function would be nice. Sort by date/value/function... I think you covered that at least indirectly but I use a lot of potions rolleyes.gif

Thanks, man. Yeah, I know you can rename items you enchant, but still ... my favorites menu is cluttered with things I don't quite remember what their properties are ... a number of times I accidentally quaffed a 'Potion of Health' when I meant to imbibe the 'Potion of Healing' ... just to cite an example of the hassle involved in not being able to see the item properties when you bring up the favorites. It's just silly when there's all that real-estate to the right of the menu.

I don't think that's it, seeing as I've never played an MMORPG in my entire life, just lots of RPG's, esp. of the action RPG aka hack/slash clickfest variety (i.e. Diablo, Dungeon Siege 1&2, Sacred 2, Titan Quest, Torchlight, etc) so I think most of what I'm asking for is just the things found in RPG's in general, of which MMORPG's would be a subset wink.gif

Those conviniences you wrote up about, they usually exist in the MMORPG genre more/less biggrin.gif The stats on items, you can see what you wear while sellling items, in WoW you can know "search" in your bags/bank, etc biggrin.gif As long as conviniency is concerned, MMORPG beats any other type of RPG game because of sheer volume of people playing and more importantly; continious play.

Dont want to hijack your thread, but id like to add some of mine, cause you covered some good ones brettjv! The Menu's as a whole are just terrible, probably the worst ive worked with. It needs to be more like DarnUI for oblivion and less like "11yr old Console players dont care about seeing whats what with their toon really quick so we wont bother". I really hate using the stereotype console tard but I feel its needed here.

Also, the new "perks" system is ridiculously limited. The whole point of this new system was to "play how you want to play" right? The fact theres only about 80 points to spend by level cap and theres 221 perks to choose makes build choices more important now then they ever have been. let me remind you in oblivion you could train up whatever skills you wanted when you wanted to and still get bonuses from those skills. so it was possible to start a warrior type then train both light/heavy armor/sneak and get full bonuses from all three. Or even start training magic skills and get decent with those. In skyrim you really need to stick to 3 or 4 tree's tops if you want to be effective at anything and still have your non-combat skills such as speech, enchanting, smithing etc... This to me is the very definition of simplification, and something that really hinders a sandboxish type game IMO. I hope I wasnt too convoluted in that. Basically, in Oblivion/morrowind its possible to train many different paths and be able to truely switch playstyles on the fly...

Some minor stuff -
-No first person horse, no ability to back up or even turn my horse while stationary, no talking with NPC's on horseback. this is a major step back from Oblivion. I discovered this hte hard way by riding up to a cliff to look over the landscape and then could turn around without riding right off the dang thing.

-Alot of spells projectiles will stay centered on the crosshair, so if youre running sideways when you cast them they move diagonally to keep pace with your toon. even in a fantasy game im pretty sure thats not how that works...

-The in-ability to sort by item category when searching containers is lol.

-Do arrows really need to be auto aimed?

-The poisons/potions have always worked as 1 shot deals in TES games so it may be nice to get some more uses out of that poison its not something i noticed.

-The followers are more of a hindrance than anything else, they dont work at all. I cant tell you how many times Lydia/Aela have gotten myself and themselves killed or completely blown my sneaking even when i tell them to wait somewhere way out of the way

All good, FDG ... the point was to let everyone rant, not just me thumb.gif

Any yeah, I was hoping to be able to get good enough to fight anything w/destruction magic, one-handed, or bow, but I'm finding I'm having to leave everything but my magic lagging behind, otherwise, I'm just not powerful enough at anything. That's very common in these types of games, however ... if you spread yourself too thin using all kinds of fighting styles, you end up very underpowered later in the game.

My rants:

1) Maybe I am wrong here - but it appears quest do not give you any XP! Only leveling a stat does. Is this correct? If so, this is phoooeee at best !!

2) I definitely want a central character screen where it will show stats and item slots. I absolutely hated the menus - but I am used to it now.

3) When you are trying to sell something or browse your inventory, you click on the particular category, it does not register !! It throws you out the entire menu and you have to start all over again. What an annoyance !

4) As for damaging follower, they should have built that into difficulty like DA:Origins. Up to normal, damage is non-existence or minimal. But in master, you got to watch out where you are throwing those AoE. But it does suck that there is no single damage spell at adept level.

5) I do agree, dungeon diving has no incentive other than to make money. I mostly dungeon dive for quests - not just random adventuring. For now, there is so many quests, it is still grabbing my interest.

My biggest problem, and its a pretty huge problem I got is this game isn't optimized to get the most out of a rig like my sig rig. I'm using 1/2 my cores and 1/2 my GPUs to run this game. Maybe if they started making real PC games instead of games that make my rig feel like a freaking 360 emulator.

For loot.. someone needs to create a mod that will bring back a bunch of the items from Morrowind. They don't necessarily have to be the most powerful but stuff like boots of blinding speed, chameleon rings, etc.. I really miss the one that allowed you to walk across the air.. I forget what it was though. I need to go play Morrowind again biggrin.gif

Wow, I've spent way too much time reading all this and I don't even have Skyrim. I was a huge fan of Oblivion, and was going to wait for Skyrim to go on sale in the far future, but now I'm not even interested...I know this is a rant/suggestion thread, but is there anything they did right, that's better or improved upon from Oblivion?

biggest gripes is pee poor story, which actually could of been much better had it been presented differently.

I would love to get together with a Mod team working on a narrative overhaul of Skyrim, if the game didnt feel so disjointed it would of been much much better.
