Hi, first of all I wanna say I love the game and really have great time playing it.
Nevertheless, there's a few things that should be added I think.
This is a summary of all thoughts for a better Vampyr game as much as for a Vampyr 2 prequel / sequel.
We have no idea at this point whether or not Dontnod will do a second game, but we can dream of it and talk about what we'd like.
_ Maps for houses, sewers and other places you go in after small loading screen.
_ A shortkey for hiding Interface and HUD which would also remove tracked quests, and / or an option to activate HUD only in combat.
_ Quick travels between the different stashes / hideouts
_ Level informations on quests and London areas.
_ A way to track down any citizen and spot him/her on London's map, without needing to walk everywhere for hours.
_ In the buying / selling window, add an option to see missing components for weapons upgrades and drugs required materials.
_ Option to sell all weapons that you find to merchants if you want (you can sell only some of them I think).
_ Auto-hide option for quest tracking and health, stamina and blood bar just like weapons and skill slots when you are not in combat.
_ A reputation system which allows you to get better prices, more hints, some hidden missions and events after doing a few investigations in the favor of a district / quarter.
_ Dismemberment = heads, arms, legs etc. Would be fitting when killing with vampire claws especially.
_ Blood spatter that sticks to NPC's in combat ( not just the floor)
_ Visible wounds upon dealing damage to enemies like scars, cuts, bleeding wounds. Senuas Sacrifice did this well. ( including an impaled wound from vampire powers)
_ Bite marks on NPC's ( same that appear during civillian biting)
_ Blood that sticks to your weapon upon using it
_ An option in Settings to increase the text size for those who want or need it. I am having great difficulty reading most of what appears on the screen. It would be very nice to be able to toggle to a larger size.
_ More outfits for doctor (finding them in city like we find weapons, recipes and collectables but we cud keep them
unlocked for next new game).
_ You probably hear this alot but New Game Plus or some form of New Game Plus where we keeping all weapons and
collectibles from first play to next new game (reset reset everything else ofc).
_ Game expansion (love your game and just want more)
_ More locations we can access with vampire quick-moves ; sometimes it was a bit silly to be standing in front of some locations without being able to jump to reach it while you could do it at some more distant and /or higher places.
_ More dialogue options than good / bad / neutral
_ More uses to vampire's mesmerize powers : could make a citizen spy on another one, kill someone, forget what he saw, etc..
_ No more of useless boxes and crates you need to destroy in order to go at some places
_ Add the possibility to create a pillar for the community, to replace a dead one or to save a forgotten place with no pillar. That would require time, lot of work, good dialogue choices and actions and a few chapters but it would improve the ways to deal with quests.
_ More learning by doing elements (shot 20 guys with a shotgun? well you get better at it now + x% damage)
_ Possible to learn some special powers from NPCs (faction dependent?)
_ A resistance / armor system (including clothing)
_ Knowledge should be power: Boni attached to the collectible sets (you have all 3 collectibles over the brotherhood - you get a +x % with the stake - you know all weaknessess of a vampire? You get a + x% bonus when you fight one)
_ A meaningfull theft and stealth system (no more grabbing everything that lies around in front of everybody) OR just close don't let all NPCs pocket change lie around in their houses.
_ Fighting xp adaptation to the power of the enemy. Winning against a Monster level 35 nets you the same amount of xp then winning against a skal level 3. Why?!
_ Upgradable Non-combat vampire powers and a meaningful use to them.
_ More meaningful ways to spend money (clothing, nice hideouts,... if future games play in a time later when blood bags are invented you could spend money for blood)
Feel free to comment and make your own list of ideas for game improvements you want from future updates, including those I wrote if you agree with them.
In this way, Dontnod team will know which things players want the most in hypothetical future patches / vampyr 2 .
