    Seeing as FO3 is "under-development", is someone going to do that wish list or is that just wishful thinking?

    i'd like to see alot better easter eggs... and some other stuff, such as keep the turn based system of things, a non-linear plot, BoS to have a roll, but as a side thingy and you dont have to have them to complete the game, more melee weapons, like a stick you can rip off a tree, pepper spray, steel toed boots (ouchies!!!!!!!!!!), and stuff like that...

    We could start going through the old posts and the new ones and do a list of some sort, any ideas on how that list would look like?

    Yes, it would look like a list. :)

    It'd need to be categorised. So all the comabt-mode suggestions are under an aptly named title, such as "Combat-Mode Suggestions". I guess that would be a one word answer saying "Turn-Based"...

    Then again, there's the reality that a lot of the threads never reached a "decision" as such. It's not as if everyone in the community took a poll and said "Yay, for it is decided and so it shall be".

    You *could* simply create a categorised index of sorts, so that all the threads dealing with RT vs TB are under one heading and linked to, all the threads about vehicles are linked to under a "Vehicles" heading and so on.

    Something like that could be a stickied thread in the forum as it gets developed. With people editing it and adding links under categories as they plough through the forum.

    That would be my idea*.

    *Also note that I am an ideas man, and not a doer. Get some lackey or something to do the list.

    Turn-based. Real time turn based (bloody BOS) just doesnt work... I played the entire of FOT through in Turn-based btw, as any sane person would.

    Vehicles should be true to the setting. Rare and rickety.

    The dual pistols sound good. More weaponry should be available. And not one/two/three of the best guns. For the love of god dont do what FOT did and give you the best Assault rifle (AK) first, and THEN give you the crap ones (M-14, M-16). Actually, on reflection they did that with the SMGs and pistols too... (MP5, that pistol you get from the 3rd or fourth raider you shoot)

    An interactive world FFS. That is one of the few things I really hated about FO1/2/BOS. So much stuff thats looks cool but is totally unusable.

    i wouldnt be able to stand playing FOT in TB. Its boring enough as it is, i used run and gun through the whole game. Fallout on the other hand should have only TB but JE Sawyer is already saying that it will probably have both.

    oh god, not another one.

    I think it would be cool if the Reavers were more involved in the storyline. I thought they were a cool enemy in FOT and one of the few good things to come out of that game.

    I would also like the level of difficulty to be greater when playing a good character as opposed to playing an evil character. It seemed odd how in the previous fallouts it was the other way around. Playing the good character should be harder but more rewarding.

    My wishlist:

    1. more sex in the game
    2. more action and shooting
    3. more naked women
    4. 1st person view
    5. ability to have sex with all woman in the game...
    6. ...in DivX quality FMV

    8. more simple plot: how about searching for Vault Sex-Teen eqipped with nothing but sperm gun, fetish leather armor, condom helm and dildo rifle? no, sorry, in the beginning you should only have your 'spear'! :lol:

    Aren't talking heads kind of obsolete in 3-D?

    My List

    1) More weapons( Yes, Fallout 2 had plenty, but there is nothing wrong with more.)

    2) Races( Would be very interesting, but would probably screw up the game, so this is kinda if'y)

    3) Non-linier game play

    4) And most of you might dislike this, but I would love to keep the same graphics and engine.....so shoot me! :P

    5) I will think of more later.

    Mohrg :twisted:

    Heres my list.

    1. More factions and faction trait/preks.
    2. Not to many citys, i like the western style towns.
    3. No more over the top, over used new reno style stuff, it dosnt fit in with the fallout setting. As one of the people on The BIS boards said, "in a world like fallout, it would be twice as hard for a junkie to survive", or something like that.
    4. More options for non combat boys.
    5. Background storeys for CNPCs.

    I got lots more, but ill post em when i can be bothered to type that much. :D

    I did the same thing, but the TB were all fuckt up in FOT, it took so long to kill a single robot that I stopped playing in "Cayenne mountains"(or something like that)

    Huzzah! Emphatic agreement. Troika did try to buy the license but Interplay said no dice. Bastards.

    I would really like a perk/perks that adds more body parts to the targeted shot "menu".

    F.ex. "torpedo" perk: Adds knecaps to the menu in the event of a targeted melee weapon attack.

    umm, ok.

    ability to bend/sit down.

    ability to turn into a super mutant or a ghoul and still finish the game. (like in FO I'd love to turn into a super muttie in the vats and then rise against the master and like raid the hell out of the rest of the world)

    ability to zoom in and out as well as rotate the camera...

    umm as for talking heads, well see if its 3d you could have these low poly talking heads, which would be just characters with facial rigs, (ie no morph targets, or what not, and no lip synching) which equals a low poly character face opening the mouth like blah blah blah... I mean if they did it with high poly in max or lightwave they could potentially get FFX/Animatrix sort of quality with the talking heads... which would be cool. this is sorta cool I'm talking about (those are 3d characters from Animatrix):


    BY POPULAR DEMAND this has been turned into a LINK :D :lol:

    Another option would be to lisence a heavy duty 3d engine something like doom 3 or half life 2... and do it all ingame... honestly I think Fallout 3 made with any of these 2 engines would TOTALLY ROCK... if they use anything that looks worse than UT2k3 it will potentially look dated, and nowadays graphics are important. As much as Fallout is about the RPG side of things I think a great engine would make it THAT MUCH COOLER, the way it deserves to look and feel.

    NO!!!!!! Seriously: N O!
    1) How does anything before UT2k3 look dated??I remember many people here replaying Fallout just because it was cool, not because of kick-ass graphics. Heh, I just replayed it...
    2)Yep, graphics are very important in this day and age, however, most PCs can't run those graphics, in which case it would just be a very ad design choice.
    3) It's isometric anyway, there isn't much you'll be able to add from such a fixed viewpoint, and besides that, I doubt anyone will watch the graphics for more than three minutes, perhaps they'll be blown away by some of the graphical effects, but that's only for a small while, if grraphics rock, but gameplay sucks, the game is still no fun.
    4)WHY? Why'd you have to put such a huge picture in here, think of all of the 56kers...
