In new Arcanum engine, there will be a advanced settings, which will allow you play original Arcanum or enchanted Arcanum, the second version will be full of new features and you will be always able to switch between these two versions.
So do you have any ideas, what you will improve, change or add?
I'll begin, so here are my ideas for new features:
These are only ideas, I need your opinion about them, so what do you think? and feel free to post yours!-Advanced ambient, with raining, thunderbolts, snowing...
-Real water, I've found a super fast algo for 2d water.
-Random sector generator. In original Arcanum, there is only few sectors that repeats, so if that kind of guy who loves walking instead of fast traveling, you'll find out after a while that Arcanum world is dead! This generator will make a random sectors with some critters, scenery and other stuff, in other words, it will make a Arcanum world much more livelier!
-Fully destroyable world, you will be able to destroy almost anything, scenery, walls, buildings and other stuff.
-Multiplayer modes, like Capture the Flag, DeathMatch, Search and Destroy... imagine some small map, with these modes.
-Make objects more realistic, probably by bump mapping method:)
-Add possibility to build own house in game, like in Ultima Online.
