Here you have some of my proposals, I will think in more:
-Add Hand to hand combat (Come on you are a vampire).
-Square for normal attack and Triangle for strong attacks (Hand to Hand), establish some kind of combo system to make combat more enjoyable.
-Quick escape button to go away from enemies some meters, when they surround you (Very High blood consume, but could escape from troubles).
-Be able to use Jump power at our wish (Could be used like a fast travel through streets with no blood consume).
Don´t like Vanilla cause is like something Hard-coded just for certains spots.... that sucks.
-Faster Stamina recovery... I like the idea to have a limitation of movements due to a more strategic combat, but the slow stamina recovery from vanilla game kills combat´s dynamism.
-Option to partial feed on citizens (like a way to pick half experience from them instead of completely kill them, then implement a system that make that character´s recovery to be pretty hard like a penalty to this action).
-A HUD to guide through the map (This is something I don´t underst why Dontnod didn´t added).
-Location of citizens, resources etc... once you explored a place.
-With Vampire vision be able to see marked all the significant objects (coloured in orange like in Batman Arkham games Detective mode) cause in vanilla using it you don´t see anything...
-An estructured resource system, more meaningful... have all the information in every object to know what resources we need... some kind of resource guide...
-New and more appropiate vampire powers:
*Speed (used in combat can be like time-bullet, your enemies move slow while you move normal).
*Rage (You unleash your inner beast, but instead to lose control you totally control de character and could feed at wish, perform very strong attacks etc...).
*Mist (You can turn into mist, can fly through the surroundings, trespass walls (only when you reach them in story) or even to use as another fast travel... blood consume must be high and could be on for 30 seconds for example).
Hope this patch increase frame rate and most important: eliminate those horrible load times when you move between zones... they happen very often and ruins the game experience...
Greetings and very happy to hear you are working on a big patch fot consoles!!!
