Environment

I would like to see a true day night cycle where at night time it gets really dark. It would be cool if we had to use lamps, torches, night vision spells or some racial abilities at night.

Another thing that I would like to see is a dynamic weather system. Maybe something like when it rains hard the river flows faster and it makes it harder for caravans to cross or in heavy snow caravans move slower.

Finally I want real line of sight, make it so we can't see name tags if they are hidden behind trees or rocks and can't tab target them. This will allow people to set up some cool ambush for caravans. A good example of horrible line of sight is Warsong Gulch in WoW, you can just shoot or cast right through the rocks and trees.

  • i agree i would like to see a true day/night cycle as well, the pvp aspect would be amazing ambushes and sneak attacks would be fun to participate in!
  • and also there is another thread you may be interested in https://www.ashesofcreation.com/forums/topic/seasons-and-climate/page/2/#post-2223, it has similar topic and suggestions :)
  • There is going to be a weather system. On discord we got a teaser of what looked to be different seasons. These will likely shit every week, so that you have 4 seasons within a month. :)

    Thanks I will check it out :D
  • I would also love a true night cycle. I've always loved playing in survival games at night where it's truly dark. Makes it very exciting.
  • I'd love to see dark nights where you can use a torch to light up the area and see things but doing so can come at a risk as other players will see you from a mile away. Problem is, making nights this dark and adding the risk of using a torch will just make tryhards turn up the brightness on their monitor to avoid using the torch.

    Not quite sure how the developers could make it so that once you hide behind a rock or tree it disables your name tag, perhaps a system like in Black Desert Online where if you crouch or go prone it hides your nameplate?
